Paris Jackson Reconnects with Debbie Rowe In Wake of Breast Cancer

7/5/2016 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705-paris-jackson-debbie-rowe-getty-instagram-01Paris Jackson apparently saw our story Monday -- that she's cut off all contact with her mom, Debbie Rowe, who's now battling breast cancer -- because we've learned Paris just contacted Debbie and proclaimed her love ... this according to Jackson family sources.

As we reported, Paris broke off contact with Debbie more than a year ago. We're told Paris' family was upset MJ's daughter had reconnected with Debbie after the singer's death and became close. On top of that, when Paris began acting out Debbie became the disciplinarian ... something Paris didn't like.

Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer recently and will undergo surgery. We're told Paris texted Debbie, "I love you," and it appears the 2 will meet up after the surgery.

Hopefully, a happy ending.

Debbie Rowe Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Daughter Paris Jackson in the Dark

7/4/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

070116-debbie-rowe-tmzMichael Jackson's ex-wife has breast cancer, and their estranged daughter doesn't even know.

We've learned Debbie Rowe was diagnosed recently and will undergo surgery in the next week, but her daughter, 18-year-old Paris Jackson, has no idea because she broke all contact with her mom more than a year ago.

Rowe has all but given up on salvaging the relationship. After Michael died, Debbie and Paris got extremely close, to the point it created friction with the rest of the family.

When Paris began dealing with her own problems, the relationship fell apart. Rowe believes the family influenced their daughter and drove a wedge.

Either way, we're told Debbie is sad, but is not counting on any emotional support from her daughter.

063016-dina-lohan-tmzLindsay Lohan will have to celebrate her 30th birthday without Dina Lohan ... who's holed up in a hospital and doctors have no idea what's wrong with her.

Sources close to Dina tell us she was taken to the hospital last Friday after complaining about severe stomach pains. We know what you're thinking -- it wasn't gas.

Doctors couldn't diagnose that initial pain, and we're told now Dina's aches have moved to her back and neck ... and it's getting worse. She's had several MRIs and CAT scans, but doctors are still baffled and Dina's spent the last 6 nights in the hospital.

The family sent us a pic, and while she seems to be in decent spirits ... we're told Dina's upset about missing LiLo's bday party in Greece.

Docs are managing her pain with meds.

Walgreens DJ Sues ... Your Earplugs Screwed My Hearing

6/29/2016 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-joseph-alpern-walgreens-getty-linkedin-02A DJ claims Walgreens sold him defective earplugs and the results were catastrophic.

Joseph Alpern says in a new lawsuit he bought the plugs in 2013 because he was about to start working at a Brooklyn club known for its powerful sound system.

Alpern claims he used the plugs for several hours and when he left the club he removed them, only to experience "an immediate sharp pain, accompanied by a ringing sound."

He says the pain didn't go away, and 6 months later he realized the damage wasn't going away either ... he had constant ringing in both ears and couldn't sleep on his right side.

Alpern went to a specialist, who gave him bad news ... he had permanent nerve damage and blames it on the plugs. The doc said the plugs were sealed so tightly, when he pulled them out it severely pulled his eardrum.

Alpern says now he suffers headaches, he's constantly fatigued and can't even listen to music at regular volumes.

He's gunning for $640,000 ... minimum.

Walgreens had no comment.

Drake Former Producer is Just Swell

EXCLUSIVE

0624-detail-injuries-tmz-02Drake's muscle packs a mean punch ... according to the guy on the receiving end.

We got these pics of the injuries of producer/rapper Detail, who claims the bruises were inflicted at the hands of Drake's security guard.

We're told the injuries were so bad he was hospitalized for days ... with a broken jaw and other injuries that required several surgeries.

As we reported, Detail claims Drake invited him to his home back in 2014 on the pretext of working on a project, but it was really an ambush. Detail says Drake was pissed he wouldn't work exclusively with the Canadian rapper.

Detail says he was so badly hurt he couldn't work for a year, and he asked Drake repeatedly, and in vain, to cover his medical expenses. When Drake refused, Detail had lawyers, Panish Shea & Boyle, file a lawsuit.

Our sources say Detail's camp is worried Drake's crew may be in L.A. for this weekend's BET Awards, and they're scared of more retaliation.

Breaking News

0624_tony-robbins_hot-coals_instagramtmzTony Robbins' motivational seminar went haywire in Dallas when more than 30 people who walked on hot coals had to get treated for burns.

According to reports ... 5 people were hospitalized Thursday night, while the rest were treated on-site for burns to their feet and lower legs. Tony had encouraged attendees to walk the coals in order to conquer their fears. It's a common thing at Robbins' events.

Tony's people tell TMZ ... 7,000 guests walked across the coals and only five "requested any examination beyond what was readily available on site."

At least one attendee blamed the burns on a lack of focus -- some people were reportedly taking selfies. This also happened at a 2012 event in San Jose.

"My son’s cheekbone is smashed, his nose, his upper-eye, his head, his brain,” Salvator's father told KRON4.com

"He’s leaking from his ears blood. Not very good. He’s a beautiful young man. Did not deserve this.”

Salvator's family started a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs. They're also begging anyone with information about the suspects to come forward.

So far, no arrests have been made.

0620-selma-blair-tmzSelma Blair is apologizing for her outburst on her flight back from Cancun, and admitting she mixed alcohol with pills.

Blair says, "I made a big mistake yesterday. After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret."

TMZ broke the story ... Selma yelled, "He burns my private parts" and "He beats me. He's going to kill me" -- before being removed by stretcher and taken to a hospital.

In her statement to Vanity Fair she added, "I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.”

She says the only saving grace was that her son was asleep with headphones on during the incident.
