Exclusive Details

Reggie Bush STL Fires Back in Stadium Slip Lawsuit ... It's YOUR Fault!

3/10/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0309-reggie-bush-tmz-01Reggie Bush only has HIMSELF to blame for slipping, falling and injuring himself at the Edward Jones Dome back in November ... so says the city of St. Louis in new court docs obtained by TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, Bush sued the city (which owns the stadium) -- claiming it stupidly installed a ring of concrete around the perimeter of the field ... incredibly dangerous for the players wearing slippery cleats. 

Bush badly injured his left knee during a fall on the concrete on Nov. 1st -- just one week after another player injured his shoulder slipping on the surface ... and he says the city must pay. 

But the city is calling BS -- saying Bush knew about the concrete ring and should have SLOWED DOWN before reaching it. 

The city of St. Louis says Bush could have "stopped, slackened his speed to have avoided the accident."

"[Bush] assumed the risk of running on concrete in shoes with cleats on them, and of all danger inherent of playing football."

The craziest part of this lawsuit ... Bush was PUSHED past the playing field and onto the ring. 

Watch the clip -- you really think he had time to stop???

SeaWorld 'Blackfish' Whale Tilikum Close To Death

Breaking News

0308-tilikum-whale-seaworld-GETTY-01Tilikum, the SeaWorld orca that became a household name after the "Blackfish" documentary is fighting for his life.

SeaWorld officials revealed the 35-year-old whale has become lethargic and his health is deteriorating. SeaWorld says they've given Tili meds for what they believe is a bacterial infection, but his condition has not improved. 

The statement did not sound optimistic, saying, "Our veterinarians are focused on managing his illness in a way that makes him comfortable and creates an enriching life."

Tilikum has been held in captivity at Seaworld for 23 years and reportedly killed three people, two trainers in 1991 and 2010 and a man who snuck in after hours in 1999.

Bobbi Kristina Cause of Death ... Drowning, Cocaine, Booze and More

3/4/2016 4:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0303_bobbi_kristina_medical-examiner-instagramBobbi Kristina Brown's official cause of death is eerily similar to her mother, Whitney Houston -- drowning while using a bunch of drugs, but the autopsy could not determine if there was foul play. 

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's testing revealed Bobbi Kristina died due to "Immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication." The drugs found in her system were marijuana, alcohol, a cocaine-related substance called benzoylecgonine, benzodiazepines (prescription anti-anxiety meds) and morphine.

The ME could not determine if the morphine was related to heroin use.

The report lists the full cause of death as pneumonia and encephalopathy -- meaning her lungs filled with water and her brain was injured -- clearly caused by the time she spent submerged in her bathtub on January 31, 2015.

Whitney's official cause of death was drowning in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton, complicated by cocaine use and heart disease.

Bobbi Kristina's autopsy results had been sealed until Friday morning because the Fulton County D.A. thought it would interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation into whether her boyfriend Nick Gordon was involved in her death. A judge unsealed the report after Atlanta station WXIA argued its First Amendment rights.

As for Gordon ... the ME was unable to determine if BK's death was "due to intentional or accidental causes." That could go a long way in clearing Gordon criminally.

However BK's estate has filed a $40 million wrongful death lawsuit against him -- alleging he gave her the toxic mix of drugs ... which the ME's report now clearly states played a role in her drowning. 

Bobbi Kristina was eventually taken off life support and died on July 26 at a hospice in Georgia. Today would have been her 23rd birthday.
