Exclusive Details

1109-reggie-bush-getty-01St. Louis might need to scrounge up some extra cash QUICK, because we're told Reggie Bush claims the city was playing with fire by installing concrete where players run in slippery cleats, and he's gunning for a fortune.

Bush slipped on the concrete ring that surrounds the playing field at Edward Jones Dome on November 1st, suffering a season-ending (and possibly career-ending ) knee injury. 

The city owns the stadium, and we've learned Bush plans on filing a claim this week, which is a prelude to a lawsuit for a lot of money. 

We're told Bush and his people are indignant because the city knew of the danger -- just a week before another player was injured after eating it on the concrete.

As for damages, we now know Bush underwent surgery for a torn meniscus. He's done for the season and here's the reality ... he's 30 and injured, so this could bring his career to an end.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Hospice Nurse Busted as Imposter

breaking news


One of the nurses charged with treating Bobbi Kristina Brown in her final days was not a nurse at all ... according to cops who've arrested the woman for faking her way into the job.

The Forsyth County Sheriff busted Taiwo Sobamowo for identity theft, forgery, and impersonating a nurse. The Sheriff and police in Duluth, GA believe she used the ID of an actual nurse with a similar name to gain employment as a hospice nurse, and ended up working where Bobbi Kristina was receiving care until her death.

Cops say Sobamowo had recently fled Georgia. She was arrested in North Carolina, and is suspected of previously pulling a similar stunt in the Washington, D.C. area,

FOX5 in Atlanta first reported the arrest. It's unclear if Sobamowo had direct contact with Bobbi Kristina at the hospice. 

Investigators don't think she was intentionally trying to get closer to Bobbi Kristina or the Brown and Houston families.
