USC athletic director Pat Haden was taken away from USC by ambulance moments ago after a medical emergency outside of the athletic facility.
We spoke with USC's sports information director who tells us ... "Pat didn't collapse. It was similar to the Notre Dame incident."
"He felt lightheaded. We sat him down. We got medical personnel. He was alert."
"At one point, we walked him to his office and we got him some hydration. The ambulance came and transported him to seek medical assistance. I'm not sure if he was taken to a hospital or his personal doctor."
As we previously reported, a USC journalism student reported at least one student saw 63-year-old Haden collapse.
USC journalism student Kelly Reinke tweeted, "Annenberg student sees @PatHadenSC carried to ambulance on stretcher outside Heritage Hall."
Back in October, Haden was hospitalized before the USC vs. Notre Dame game after feeling lightheaded.
He recently announced he would be stepping down from his position so he could spend more time with his family.
"Love & Hip Hop: NY" star Tahiry Jose says the brutal attack by a man backstage at a 2014 NYC fashion show left her $31k in the hole from medical bills and she's suing to get it back.
Tahiry just filed new legal docs in her suit against Carlos Fiasco, the man who copped a plea deal and got off with no jail time, and the fashion show and theater where the assault took place.
In the docs, she lists off her injuries from the assault -- cervical sprain, several disc injuries, wrist derangement, concussion and post-traumatic headaches. She says the pain got so bad she needed an epidural.
Tahiry says she had to drop $8k just for a neurologist and $5.5k for rehab. She's suing for her total medical bill -- the $31k -- plus damages for suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
8:30 AM PT -- DMX denies taking any powder or drugs. He says all he remembers is having shortness of breath after suffering bronchitis for a couple of days.
A family member says X asked for his inhaler (for asthma) right before he fell unconscious. They were not able to get it to him in time. He's still in the hospital.DMX was at death's door Monday night, not breathing, without a pulse and the signs point to an overdose.
It's a lot worse than the story DMX's people were putting out ... that he suffered an asthma attack.
Yonkers cops responded to a call about an unconscious male at a Ramada Inn just after 6 PM. We're told when cops arrived DMX was on the ground in the parking lot next to a parked car. Cops quickly determined he was lifeless, not breathing with no pulse and immediately began CPR.
After a minute of CPR X's pulse came back.
A witness on scene told cops DMX had ingested some sort of powder before lapsing into unconsciousness. Cops gave him Narcan, an antidote to narcotic ODs. DMX became "semi-conscious" and was taken to the hospital.
We're told DMX appears to be in stable condition and at this time, no criminal charges are expected.
Salma Hayek got a helping hand from a couple of ER docs after getting rushed to the hospital in the coolest, most totally inappropriate shirt.
She's gonna be fine -- sounds like she bumped her head during a shoot -- but it might be a while before the doctors recover from seeing her in a t-shirt that makes it look like someone's got a handbra on her ample jugs.
Salma thought it was funny though ... she posted the pic. Breast ER visit.
Johnny Manziel's father says he's tried to get his son into rehab TWICE in the past week -- but Johnny refuses -- and now he's concerned he could die if he doesn't get help, asap.
Paul Manziel spoke with the Dallas Morning News and said, "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday."
Paul told DMN his family first tried to admit 23-year-old Johnny to the Enterhealth Ranch addiction facility in Van Alstyne on Saturday (after the incident with Colleen Crowley) -- but he refused to stay.
On Tuesday, Paul Manziel said he tried a second time ... begging his son to enter the Carrollton Springs Hospital ... which specializes in treating patients who suffer from mental illness and/or addiction.
Katie May, a hugely popular Playboy model and social media sensation, suffered a "catastrophic" stroke ... according to her family.
May, known as MsKatieMay on the Internet, is hospitalized in critical condition after suffering the stroke Monday in Los Angeles. We're told she'd recently complained of neck pain and sought treatment. Her family tells us the devastating stroke was caused by a blockage in her carotid artery.
There have been rampant rumors on the Internet that Katie died. People have been posting R.I.P. across all her social media sites. She's only in her mid 30s, so the stroke is especially shocking.
Known as the "Queen of Snapchat" ... she's modeled for Playboy and Sports Illustrated. She has almost 2 million followers on Instagram alone.
Katie has a 7-year-old daughter, and the family has started a gofundme page to support the little girl. We don't know Katie's prognosis yet, but it seems grim.
She captioned her last IG post, "Hope everyone is having a great Monday! It's very windy here today in LA."
Awesome moment Tuesday courtesy of Vernon Davis -- when he surprised a hardcore Broncos fan at a Children's Hospital near the Super Bowl ... and the fan was so excited, he could barely talk!
It all went down at Stanford Children's Health -- where Alex -- an 18-year-old Broncos fan -- has been courageously battling cancer and heart problems since he was 5 years old.
We're told the hospital tweeted out to several Broncos players asking if anyone could stop by -- and lo and behold, the tweets got to Vernon's people.
The tight end immediately cleared his schedule and made plans to go to the hospital -- what ensued was a pretty special moment.
We spoke with a rep for the hospital who tells us the two talked about everything from the Super Bowl to what Peyton Manning is like in real life. The two also took pics together and Vernon signed a football.
In the end, we're told the experience was a "dream come true" for Alex.
"Mob Wives" star Big Ang is in dire straits in her fight against stage 4 lung and brain cancer so her family is turning to marijuana as a last resort.
Ang didn't respond to the chemo treatments she started after the New Year, in fact her family says one of the tumors got bigger. Her sister Janine tells us Ang isn't on her deathbed, but her breathing is labored and she's in a lot of pain.
They've decided to try managing her pain with cannabis oil. Some patients believe the alternative treatment can even shrink tumors (that hasn't been scientifically proven) -- but it ain't cheap, going for as much as $60 per gram. The family is raising money via aGoFundMe page.
Ang is too tired to do anything, but Janine is hoping the cannabis oil will at least keep her pain-free.
Dr. Oz is getting called out again over a "magic weight-loss cure" he touted on his TV show ... this time in a class action lawsuit.
The suit is all over weight loss supplements containing Garcinia Cambogia ... which is green coffee bean extract. They're sold by a company called Labrada, and Dr. Oz covered the products on an episode called "Five Biggest Fat Busters for Five Body Types in Just Five Days."
The suit, filed by a consumer on behalf of all purchasers, says Oz described Garcinia Cambogia as a revolutionary fat buster which "could be the magic ingredient that lets you lose weight without diet or exercise." The suit says the "Oz Effect" caused sales to skyrocket.
Oz already had to testify about this product for a Senate panel in 2014, and during the grilling he leaned on evidence from a scientific study. But the lawsuit points out that study has since been discredited.
According to the suit, "all credible scientific evidence" shows Garcinia Cambogia simply doesn't work. The plaintiffs are going after Oz, Labrada, Harpo Productions and others to get their money back plus damages.
A rep for Oz's show says the lawsuit attacks his right to free speech and, "As we have always explained to our viewers, the Dr. Oz Show does not sell these products nor does he have any financial ties to these companies."
