Ray J Booted from 'Celebrity Big Brother' After Blacking Out and Claiming Neglect

1/10/2017 1:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0110-ray-j-celebrity-big-brother-TMZ-02Ray J is in the hospital and enraged at "Celebrity Big Brother" for letting him suffer for days in extreme pain to the point he blacked out and he's been kicked out of the house ... TMZ has learned.

Ray has been shooting the show in the UK but 3 days ago we're told he developed "extreme tooth pain" and complained to cast members and producers.  According to sources connected to Ray J, producers initially didn't believe him and ignored his complaints.

We're told producers ordered Ray to continue shooting the show, as the pain became unbearable.

Our sources say the next day, cast members felt the situation was so bad they refused to continue shooting until Ray got medical help.  

We're told the next day a dentist came to the set, gave Ray 8 painkillers, 4 of which he was to take immediately and the remaining 4 the next morning.  

Ray woke up Tuesday in unbearable pain, took the remaining 4 pills and then pleaded for help. We're told producers agreed to take him to the hospital but on the way out of the house he blacked out.

Ray is currently at the hospital. We're told he has an abscessed tooth, a cracked filling in another tooth, and a severe gum issue.

Sources tell us he's been kicked off the show.

As we reported, the show promised him $1 million, but that seems like it's in jeopardy.

Charles Manson In 'Bad Shape' Back in Prison

1/9/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0108-charles-manson-SPLASH-02Charles Manson is back in Corcoran State Prison, and we're told he might not survive his health crisis.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson was taken to a Bakersfield hospital a week ago for significant intestinal bleeding. Doctors wanted to perform surgery, but Manson refused. Late last week he had a change of heart, but doctors determined he was so weak he might die on the operating table.

The surgeons went back and forth, planning the surgery again ... but ultimately cancelled it.

We're told there was nothing more the hospital could do, so Manson was taken back to Corcoran -- largely for security reasons.

As for the 82-year-old prisoner's condition, one source familiar with the situation said, "He's not good. His health is failing."

Charles Manson Healthy Enough to Go Under the Knife

1/7/2017 1:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0109-charles-manson-gettyCharles Manson is finally strong enough to undergo a surgery that will repair a lesion in his intestines that has caused significant bleeding ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson was rushed almost a week ago from Corcoran State Prison to a hospital in Bakersfield, CA for an operation. We're told Manson refused the surgery, but on Thursday had a change of heart.  

Hours before the scheduled operation, doctors determined they couldn't put the 82-year-old under and operate because he was too weak ... so the surgery was scrubbed.

We're now told Manson's regained his strength and doctors have green lit the procedure, which will now go down later today.

Our sources say Manson will also receive a blood transfusion.

The former Denver Broncos star was arrested on Feb. 5 after allegedly attacking his then-girlfriend at a Hampton Inn hotel in Madison, Wisconsin.

The woman initially told police a heavily intoxicated Ball grabbed her and threw her across the room and she smacked her leg on a table ... leaving a bloody gash and a bruise on the back of her head. 

Officers also noticed a bruise on her lip and the woman claimed it was an injury suffered in another recent incident involving Ball.

Ball was eventually sentenced to 60 days in jail in a plea deal that combined this case with another domestic violence case involving a different woman.

EXCLUSIVE

0106-carnival-cruise-injury-launchA Carnival cruise passenger sprang a major leak while playing mini-golf on the ship -- as in, his arm was ripped wide open, and we got the gory pics he says prove the cruise line's to blame. 

Dzung Tran says he was mini-golfing aboard the Carnival Splendor last summer when he tripped and fell over a loose border on the course. He says he suffered numerous injuries ... the worst of which was to his arm.

Tran says he was impaled by a club which tore a major artery in his upper arm. If you want to know how major, check out the photos. You might want to sit down first. 

Tran claims the golf course was poorly maintained and not built to code, so he's suing for a ton of dough. We reached out to Carnival. No word back yet.

Take a look at the course ... if you've recovered from the injury pics.

Manson remains at the hospital and doctors are trying to figure out their next move.

Uber Sued Driver Beat Me Up, Left Me For Dead and STILL Charged Me!

1/6/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0105-uber-lawsuit-fun-art-01Uber's being sued over a rogue driver who allegedly beat the crap out of a passenger and left him for dead in freezing weather.

Joseph Fusco says the ordeal went down back in December when he requested an Uber to take him on a 9 mile ride to his home to Cherry Hill, NJ. In the lawsuit he's filed against Uber, Joseph says the driver refused to drive him there.

Joseph pleaded, but says the driver got pissed, dragged him out of the car and beat him senseless ... breaking multiple bones in his face, knocking out teeth and leaving him in a pool of blood in the cold. He thinks there's surveillance video showing him unconscious as the driver stomped him.

Adding insult to injury, Joseph says the driver charged him for a 28 minute ride -- and Uber has refused to ID the driver for investigators.

Sources connected to Uber tell us the company dropped the driver as soon as the incident was reported, and -- contrary to Joseph's suit -- is fully supporting the investigation.

Miles Teller Car Crash 911 ... Anyone Ejected from Vehicles?

1/5/2017 8:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Moments after Miles Teller's truck was flipped in a crash, a woman on the scene -- possibly his girlfriend -- called 911 and described the horrific scene.

The operator is, understandably, concerned about victims being ejected from the vehicles involved in the wreck.

TMZ broke the story ... Miles' Bronco flipped on its side on the evening of Dec. 22 ... after an Uber driver cut him off on a wet road in the San Fernando Valley 

The only silver lining -- the operator points out they wrecked right near a fire station.

As we reported -- 2 passengers in the Uber were hospitalized with minor injuries. The accident was NOT Miles' fault.

Justin Bieber Gives Away Another Dog New Owner Paying Hefty Price

1/4/2017 2:10 PM PST
Exclusive Details

0104-bieber-and-dog-tmz-instagramJustin Bieber's already done with the puppy he got less than 6 months ago -- one of his dancers adopted it, but is now stuck with the bill for a very expensive surgery.

C.J. Salvador tells TMZ he and his parents got Bieber's 7-month-old chow, named Todd, when Justin decided -- once again -- he couldn't care for it due to his work schedule.

Remember, Justin's previously ditched a hamster, a monkey and another dog ... so it's a disturbing pattern -- and this time there's a costly twist.

C.J. says during a recent checkup they found out Todd was born with severe hip dysplasia, and vets say it's likely he won't be able to walk by age 1. He says the only hope is a corrective surgery which will cost about $8,000.  

0104_justin_bieber_todd_the_dog_instagram-swipeWith the help of 90 donors -- including Jaden Smith -- C.J. has raised more than the $8k. Interestingly, Bieber has NOT donated.

C.J. says Justin didn't know about the defect, nor did he tell him about it. He says he didn't want to bother JB because Todd isn't his responsibility anymore.

It's true. 3 words you don't associate with Justin Bieber: responsible pet owner.
