The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gave a man who beat cancer a heart attack when they fired him ... according to the ex-employee.
The man claims his cancer treatment forced him to go on disability from July 2015 to March 2016, but he returned to work when his cancer went into remission. He says the HR supervisor was cool with him working from home if he needed to for pain management.
He says a new supervisor took over in April 2016 and turned his work life upside down. In a lawsuit, he says the new HR honcho gave him a hard time when he tried to work from home, and ignored his doctor's notes requesting flexibility.
Eventually, he says he was fired by email and was so upset ... he had a heart attack on the spot. He's now suing for disability discrimination and wrongful termination.
We reached out to the Academy ... so far, no word back.
Here are the bloody photos of Denver Broncos star Aqib Talib ... taken after he shot himself in Dallas back in June.
The Dallas PD just released the images from the case -- along with video of Aqib limping into the hospital. Cops also released a letter from Talib's attorney in which he admits the NFL star shot himself.
The photos show bandages on Talib's right thigh and calf. According to reports, the Broncos star shot himself through the thigh and the bullet struck his calf.
Talib's attorney also told cops Talib initially lied to police while he was at the hospital and denied shooting himself ... because "he was disoriented and was on morphine" and scared about possibly losing his NFL career.
Talib was at a strip club earlier in the evening where shots had been fired. Two other people were hurt in the shooting. But cops could never prove Talib was at the club when the shots were fired.
Mischa Barton was hospitalized after exhibiting some bizarre behavior that had friends and neighbors extremely concerned Thursday morning.
Sources connected to Mischa tell us she was hanging over her backyard fence in West Hollywood and rambling about her mom being a witch, the world shattering ... and Ziggy Stardust. At one point she fell backward off the fence and said, "Oh my God, it's over! I feel it, and it's angry!"
She was only wearing a dress shirt and tie at the time.
Sheriff's deputies and firefighters responded to a call for a jumper or possible overdose. Law enforcement sources tell us Mischa was voluntarily transported to a hospital for mental evaluation.
We've reached out to Mischa's camp for an update on her condition, but no word back yet.
Back in 2009, she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.
A woman is suing the famous Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas over horrific bites she says she got from a bed bug swarm, and she has creepy crawly video to back it up.
Cindi Avila claims she checked into the hotel back in January 2016 and woke up with bites all over her body ... some of which left her scarred. In docs, Avila says a bed bug infestation erupted in her room, and she's blaming the hotel for failing to change the bed skirt.
Avila says she shot video of the bugs in action when she lifted mattress. She's suing for damages, mental anguish and medical costs.
An Atlantis Resort rep tells us the hotel "immediately took the room out of service, brought in the property’s professional pest company to eradicate the problem" and compensated Avila for her stay.
The rep also says they offered to reimburse her medical bills ... but Avila said no dice.
