Exclusive Details

1012_tommy_ford_launchTommy Ford -- who famously played Tommy on the '90s sitcom "Martin" -- is on life support at an Atlanta hospital after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen ... his wife tells TMZ

Ford has been hospitalized since Sunday and his health has declined ever since. 

He is currently on life support and is not expected to make it through the day. Ford's wife, Gina, says the family is still praying for him. 

Earlier, Ford's pal, Anthony Anderson, tweeted Ford had died -- but at the time, he was still alive. We're told Anthony had received inaccurate information, and merely tweeted in support of his friend. He's since deleted the tweet.

Tommy starred in all 5 seasons of "Martin" as Martin Lawrence's level-headed best friend, who often played straight man to Martin's crazy antics. 

He also appeared on "New York Undercover," "The Jamie Foxx Show" and "The Parkers."

Ford also wrote children's books that promoted drug-free and violence-free lifestyles.

Tim Tebow comforted and prayed over a fan who suffered a seizure after the star's Arizona Fall League game on Tuesday ... and TMZ Sports has footage from the scene. 

Tebow -- still in uniform -- was signing post-game autographs for fans when a man named Brandon began to suffer a seizure and collapsed onto the concrete.

Tebow waited with the man for 15 minutes while paramedics rushed over -- with Tim offering words of encouragement until help arrived. In the video, you can hear Tebow say, "Hang in there buddy."

Witnesses at the scene tell us Tebow also prayed over the man -- and even joked around with the guy to keep him in good spirits. 

When Tebow was confident the situation was under control he squeezed the man's hand and promised he would be in touch.

So far, no update on the man's condition.

Luke Bryan made good on his promise to perform live after breaking his collarbone -- he just used his lower half more than usual ... which was just fine by his fans.

All his friends say ... he should stay off bikes.


Larry the Cable Guy Snaps Guy's Arm

10/6/2016 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is NOT what Larry the Cable Guy meant by "Git-R-Done" -- but he damn near broke his opponent's limb in half during an arm wrestling competition.

The video is intense to say the least -- and it went down at the University of Nebraska football game last Saturday in Lincoln. Larry, a huge Huskers fan, and the guy -- an army vet named John -- were in a luxury suite, and we're told John challenged the comedian.

Just watch, it's a very close competition. Until it isn't ... and John's arm breaks.

We're told he had surgery to put a plate in his arm, and he's as okay as he can be today.

Fittingly, he broke his humerus bone. Yes, the funny bone.


Drake My Ankle's HEALED!! ... For Chicago, At Least

10/6/2016 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It looks like Drake's ankle's gone from 0 to 100 overnight ... meaning it miraculously healed, or the injury was suspicious in the first place.

The rapper played a show in Chicago Wednesday night, and based on the running he did onstage in this video ... his "recent ankle injury" isn't nearly as bad as he made it sound when he postponed a bunch of shows earlier in the day.

Get ready for the conspiracy theories, especially since one of the delayed concerts is in Philly, Meek Mill's turf. To be fair, Drizzy made it sound like the problem was performing on consecutive nights.

Check out the clip -- he's spry as hell for a dude on the mend.


Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Sued You Ruined Cheerleader's Career

10/6/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-snoop-wiz-live-nation-tmz-01Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa's concert disaster destroyed a teenager's dreams of being a cheerleading champ, and also her regular dreams at night ... according to a new lawsuit.

The woman who's suing says her 16-year-old granddaughter was one of the dozens injured when that railing collapsed at Wiz and Snoop's NJ show in August. She blames the rappers for causing the accident because they yelled, "Everybody in the mother******* grass bring your ass down here."  

She's also got beef with Live Nation, which manages the venue, for inadequate crowd control. In the docs, she says her granddaughter fell 10 feet onto concrete, got pinned by the crowd, knocked out cold and woke up covered in blood with a broken arm and wrist.

The injuries forced her to give up competitive cheerleading, and the girl is having nightmares ... according to the docs.

Wiz and Snoop's camps haven't gotten back to us, but Live Nation had no comment.

1004_lindsay_lohan_finger_surgery_launchLindsay Lohan didn't let a little thing like getting a huge chunk of her finger chopped off ... stop her from charity work.  

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, she had surgery over the weekend -- you can see the (still gnarly) results in the photos we got -- and on Tuesday she was helping resettle displaced refugees again.

She took her bandaged hand to Sultanbeyli, met with the mayor and helped move a family into a new home.

1004_lindsay_lohan_charity_injury_subWe're told Lindsay feels she's in a good place post-Egor, and is eager to do good where she can. Still unclear if she'll go back to wearing her used-to-be-engagement ring when the finger heals.  

Samsung Sued Your Phone Blew Up On My Crotch

10/4/2016 9:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003-samsung-phone-expolsion-lawsuit-TMZ-01Samsung's new Galaxy smartphone is the bomb to at least one consumer who says the thing scorched his groin while he was sleeping.

Michael Taylor is suing Samsung over its new Galaxy Note 7, which blew up and caught fire on his bed in the dead of night ... according to the docs. Taylor says the hotline burned his crotch, legs and sheets.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, he says he had no idea the phone had a defective battery susceptible to overheating and exploding. About a month after he bought it, he was charging the phone overnight and says he woke up to find it "shooting flames" ... which caused 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree burns. 

Samsung had issued a recall earlier in September -- before the alleged fire -- but Michael says the phone should never have been sold to him in the first place.
