Walgreens DJ Sues ... Your Earplugs Screwed My Hearing

6/29/2016 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-joseph-alpern-walgreens-getty-linkedin-02A DJ claims Walgreens sold him defective earplugs and the results were catastrophic.

Joseph Alpern says in a new lawsuit he bought the plugs in 2013 because he was about to start working at a Brooklyn club known for its powerful sound system.

Alpern claims he used the plugs for several hours and when he left the club he removed them, only to experience "an immediate sharp pain, accompanied by a ringing sound."

He says the pain didn't go away, and 6 months later he realized the damage wasn't going away either ... he had constant ringing in both ears and couldn't sleep on his right side.

Alpern went to a specialist, who gave him bad news ... he had permanent nerve damage and blames it on the plugs. The doc said the plugs were sealed so tightly, when he pulled them out it severely pulled his eardrum.

Alpern says now he suffers headaches, he's constantly fatigued and can't even listen to music at regular volumes.

He's gunning for $640,000 ... minimum.

Walgreens had no comment.

EXCLUSIVE

0624-detail-injuries-tmz-02Drake's muscle packs a mean punch ... according to the guy on the receiving end.

We got these pics of the injuries of producer/rapper Detail, who claims the bruises were inflicted at the hands of Drake's security guard.

We're told the injuries were so bad he was hospitalized for days ... with a broken jaw and other injuries that required several surgeries.

As we reported, Detail claims Drake invited him to his home back in 2014 on the pretext of working on a project, but it was really an ambush. Detail says Drake was pissed he wouldn't work exclusively with the Canadian rapper.

Detail says he was so badly hurt he couldn't work for a year, and he asked Drake repeatedly, and in vain, to cover his medical expenses. When Drake refused, Detail had lawyers, Panish Shea & Boyle, file a lawsuit.

Our sources say Detail's camp is worried Drake's crew may be in L.A. for this weekend's BET Awards, and they're scared of more retaliation.
