Prince William Quick! Pass The Royal Scalpel!

1/10/2018 11:30 AM PST

No, you're not watching an episode of "Royal ER" starring Prince William ... dude actually scrubbed up and joined surgeons in the operating room of a cancer hospital in London.

The future King of England sat in on a robotic surgery at Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea. The hospital was one of the first in London to use the technology on cancerous tumors, and since Wills followed in his late mom footsteps as the president of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, he got to see the bot firsthand Wednesday at work.

Warning, some of the pics of the surgery are graphic, but Wills handled it like a pro.

EXCLUSIVE

Rapper Kevin McCall says he suffered 3 broken toes and a fractured tibia after being shot in the foot in broad daylight in South Central L.A. and he swears he wasn't the one who fired.

McCall was taken to Centinela Hospital in Inglewood Wednesday after he says someone put a hole through his shoe as he was coming out of a convenient store.

There was a rumor going around that he accidentally shot himself in the foot, but Kevin gave us the play-by-play. He says police took a report, but Kevin does not plan to take any further action.

He seemed in good spirits, though, when we got him at the barbershop, where his barber was making sure he looked good from head to ... too soon?

Live Nation Sued by Fans Allegedly Injured at Future Concert ... During Stampede

1/4/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A couple fans claim they got jacked up from an alleged stampede at a Future concert last year, and say the rapper and Live Nation are responsible ... so they're suing.  

Catrina Washington and Shauntay Harris filed separate lawsuits against Live Nation and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn -- where the show went down last May -- for injuries they say they suffered after getting trampled in a stampede at the concert.

In the docs, Washington and Harris say fireworks were used during the performance, setting off a loud noise and causing a panic -- which allegedly led to them getting stomped all over as people scattered in chaos. Some folks thought gunshots had gone off.

For the record, the NYPD released a statement on this at the time. They said a loud metal-on-metal sound erupted when the stage was lowered too quickly at the end of the show -- insisting that, coupled with the sound of gunshots in one of the outgoing songs, is what caused the scare.

Future isn't named in the suits -- they name a rapper named Rome Fortune. We spoke to sources connected to the case, and we're told the suit will be amended to include Future. We're guessing Rome will be dropped 'cause he was nowhere near the Brooklyn show.

Live Nation had no comment ... still no word back from Barclays Center.

EXCLUSIVE

8:30 AM PT -- Kim just thanked the doctors and nurses who helped Saint, saying, "I just want to thanks every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock. We are so grateful for you all!"

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's son, Saint West, was hospitalized last week with a bad case of pneumonia ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the 2-year-old was brought to an L.A. area hospital Thursday with pneumonia, and that his parents were with him while he remained hospitalized, sharing overnight duties.

We're told Saint was released on Saturday, so he was checked in for just a couple days. He's at home now, and sources say he's doing well. 

Kim shared a family photo from Christmas just a few days before Saint was admitted.

Happy Holidays

Kim and Kanye also shared a New Year's Eve kiss on Sunday. The hospitalization went down right after her mid-week meet-up with J Lo and A-Rod -- where Kim and co. enjoyed a taco Wednesday party.

Good thing Saint's on the mend ... his new baby sis is supposed to be coming home sometime this month. She'll probably need her big bro to show her the ropes, sniffle free.

1/1/2018 3:00 PM PST

Carrie Underwood might look different whenever she returns to the big stage ... 'cause she says she needed at least 40 stitches in her face after falling last month.

Carrie reportedly sent a health update Sunday to members of her fan club, revealing her doctor patched her face up with "between 40 to 50 stitches" while undergoing surgery from a nasty fall she suffered at home in November. She also broke her wrist at the time.

She goes on to say she's currently healing, but "not quite looking the same." She ends her note with a hopeful message about the new year ... adding "And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different."

Carrie posted a photo of her covered face this Christmas season, but didn't address anything about her facial injuries ... which, apparently, were very serious. #GetWellSoon

Selena Gomez's Mom Freaks Out, Taken to Hospital Over Justin Reunion

12/19/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Selena Gomez's mom got so worked up when she found out how serious things are between Selena and Justin Bieber, she had to be taken to a hospital ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us police went to an L.A. area hotel last week to do a welfare check on Selena's mom, Mandy Teefey, at a family member's request. We're told she was taken to a nearby hospital to get checked out, but not under a 5150 hold -- instead, she was voluntarily transported for treatment. 

Sources with direct knowledge of the incident tell us Mandy had a heated convo with Selena that day about the reunion with Justin. When Selena revealed she and JB were in couples therapy, Mandy flipped ... realizing the relationship was going to be more long-term than she thought.

As we've reported ... Justin is a huge trigger for Selena's family, some of whom say they'll never forgive him or accept him for what they think he did to her years ago.

Mandy was released from the hospital the same day. We're told she's giving Selena space to figure out what she wants, but the fam already knows what they want ... and it ain't Justin. 

NBA's Devin Booker In Wheelchair with Crutches ... After Groin Injury

12/6/2017 8:01 AM PST

Hopefully it's just an abundance of caution ... but Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker was spotted in a wheelchair -- and clutching crutches -- after suffering a groin injury Tuesday night. 

21-year-old Book suffered a strained left adductor during the 4th quarter of the Suns vs. Raptors game Tuesday night ... and he appeared to be in a ton of pain, having to be carried off the court.

Booker was wheeled through the airport in Toronto after the game -- and while he didn't say much, you can see he looks pretty sad. 

Hopefully it's nothing serious for the young baller ... he's been off to a hot start in his 3rd season in the Association, averaging 24 points a game.

Get well soon.

'Little Women: LA' Star Christy Gibel Sues M.D.s You Botched My Spinal Surgery

12/4/2017 12:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of the stars of "Little Women: LA" is taking a bunch of doctors to court for a BIG payday ... 'cause she claims they screwed up her neck in surgery.

Christy Gibel just sued some M.D.s from a surgery center in Beverly Hills called 90210 Surgery Medical Center as well as Cedars-Sinai and other private practices, claiming the whole lot screwed up a spinal cord surgery she underwent with them in 2016.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Christy says she went under last November for a procedure called an anterior discectomy and spinal cord decompression, and during a couple post-op visits ... the doctors overseeing the matter misled her despite worsening symptoms.

She says she felt her left eye drooping, and her tongue swelling, and was unable to speak for a while -- all of which she says she was told would subside over time ... but it didn't. She also claims they admitted her jugular vein was nicked during surgery.

The reality star is suing for negligence and asking for an unspecified amount in damages and medical costs related to the alleged botched surgery. We've reached out to 90210 and Cedars ... so far, no word back.

Shareef O'Neal Injured Slams Head on Court ... During Brutal Fall

11/28/2017 12:10 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Scary moment for Shareef O'Neal ... who appeared to be seriously injured during a high school basketball game Monday night when he went up for a shot and came down on his head.

Shaq's son was making his senior season debut for Crossroads High School in a game against Beverly Hills High and was lighting it up with 31 points ... until the injury.

Shareef went up in traffic for a layup, but his legs got tangled with the defenders -- and he came crashing down hard without bracing himself. You can hear the crack on the court -- and Shareef was holding his head in pain afterward.

O'Neal eventually got up but didn't go back in the game. We're told he's now in the team concussion protocol and will miss Tuesday night's game as a precaution.

Shareef is one of the top high school players in the country and has already committed to the University of Arizona

Get well soon, man.

Billy Bush Hospitalized After Getting Hit ... By a Golf Ball

11/27/2017 6:02 PM PST

Billy Bush clearly didn't hear the "FORE!!" on the green ... 'cause he was struck by a golf ball that sent him to the hospital.

Bush posted a few pics Monday of his hospital visit at Cedars-Sinai in L.A. where he was treated for what appears to be a head injury. Unclear when exactly this happened, but from the looks of one of these photos ... he got jacked up good.

The ex "Today" show co-host captioned his post ... "FORE!! Thanks nurse Katrina, jovi, Jenn, Mercy @cedarsinai for the bed, the care, the ice. I think I dodged a bullet...but sadly not a golf ball. Scan is clear, let the jokes begin."

Although Billy says everything was fine, it looks like he changed out of his shirt during his stay ... which makes us wonder if he was there overnight. 

Whatever the case ... glad you're doing better, Billy. Next time, wear a helmet out there.

Harrison Ford Still Playing Hero ... Helps Woman Who Drove Off Highway

11/19/2017 12:48 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford is the real-life Han Solo/Indiana Jones/every action hero he's ever played on camera ... 'cause he just helped a woman who ran her car off a highway.

Ford was on the scene of a crash late Sunday morning in Santa Paula, where a woman who was driving east on California State Route 126 accidentally drove her car off the road. 

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ Ford was driving behind her when she lost control and crashed into an embankment off the freeway. He pulled over and rushed to the woman's aide, as did other bystanders, to get her safely out of the vehicle while paramedics arrived.

Law enforcement sources tell us the woman was transported with minor injuries. 

This ain't the first time Ford's held up as a standout good citizen. You'll recall ... he recently directed tunnel traffic in NYC at a moment's notice -- did a pretty good job, too.

Thank you (again) for your service, Harrison.
