Lil Boosie

My Diabetes Meds Went On Vacay

... That's Why I Puked

5/27/2015 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Lil Boosie first heard big cheers from a NYC crowd, and then huge groans .. because fans watched him vomit on stage -- and he tells us it's all because he lost some very important medication.

Boosie -- a known diabetic -- says there was a miscommunication during his travel, and the bag with his meds went to Philly ... while he went to New York. He went on stage last night without getting his insulin shot. 

He wants his fans to know everything's cool now -- he's got his Rx, and is on his way to Nebraska to tear down the stage.

As Boosie puts it, "S**t happens when you have diabetes but I feel good now.”

I'm Too Sick to Move

Suge Knight's gotta be running out of sick days by this point -- the accused murderer refused to leave his jail cell, and forced a judge to postpone his hearing for an alleged robbery.

Knight, who's sitting in jail awaiting trial for murder, told jailers he was too sick to go to court on Wednesday morning. He and comedian Katt Williams were scheduled to have a hearing for their alleged robbery of a paparazzo in Beverly Hills.

Knight's had numerous medical issues -- including a fainting spell -- in courtrooms and in the jail since he was arrested for allegedly murdering Terry Carter by driving his truck over him.

Williams did not show for court either today. The judge agreed to postpone the hearing until Friday, and said Knight would be forcibly taken to court if he plays the sick card again. 

Karrueche Tran

Oh, That Bloody Lip?

It's Just ...

0526-karrueche-tran-bleeding-lip-INSTAGRAM-01Karrueche Tran's bloody lip and vague caption might have you believing something seriously physical went down a certain someone in her life ... but TMZ has learned that just isn't the case. 

KT posted the photo Tuesday afternoon with the caption, "Rough day in Chicago." While it seems like a bad domestic violence joke -- we're told she was actually referring to a photo shoot she just did in Chi-town.

Our sources say the spread called for Karrueche to play a "street fighter" type, thus the blood.

So, despite her ex-bf temporarily overreacting to her pic with Tyson Beckford -- this fight club snapshot was strictly a work thing.

The Who

Puff, Puff ...

Shove That Weed Up Your Ass!

5/21/2015 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

****WARNING: Video contains graphic language*****

Roger Daltrey damn near shut down The Who's latest concert because someone was smoking marijuana, and video of the incident is graphic -- for its severely un-rock and roll nature. 

During Wednesday night’s show on Long Island ... the Hall of Fame frontman stopped singing three songs in so he could berate a fan whose weed smoke was bothering his voice. His bandmate Pete Townshend joined in, screaming at the toker ... “eat it up your f***ing arse.” 

At first glance, this is shocking behavior for The Who -- once dubbed the loudest band in the world. But we're told by fans who attended, there was a huge anti-smoking announcement before the concert. So everyone knew the deal.

Plus, Daltrey's had multiple procedures on his throat -- and the tour was even postponed when he got a throat infection in December.

Rock and roll never dies ... but it does grow old.

Robin Thicke

Our Dog Ate Weed

Now It's One Sick Puppy

EXCLUSIVE

0516_robin_thicke_pot_dogRobin Thicke and his 20-year-old girlfriend aren't gonna win any SPCA awards anytime soon, because they accidentally turned their dog into a pothead.

April Love Geary gushed about Bincy last month when she and Robin plunked down $350 for the terrier mix.  

But things went south quickly.  April says a day after they took the pooch home it somehow got into their stash and got sick.  Bincy went to the vet, but apparently she still had a taste for the green stuff.

Three days after returning home, Bincy was back at the animal doc, for the same problem.  This time April insisted it was more of a contact high, but when friends started ragging on her she tweeted, "IT'S NOT ME!!! Some falls on the ground or she sits by him smoking and just inhales it hahaha."

Best we can see, Bincy's back home.  Keep those Funyons away from her, Robin ... they're dangerous.

 April tells us in one of the trips to the vet, although they thought the dog got into the pot the stool sample revealed it was garlic.  It's unclear how the dog got into garlic.

Steve Aoki

Screw Vocal Surgery

LET'S ROCK!!!

5/17/2015 8:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steve Aoki made a weird appearance Saturday ... screaming his lungs out onstage just days after he announced he was cancelling European appearances because of a large nodule on his vocal cord.

Steve threw a huge concert Saturday on the streets of downtown L.A., celebrating the release of his new album, Neon Future II.

He doesn't seem to have a problem with his pipes, which is surprising since he said he was canceling the 5 performances so he could have surgery.

Given the diagnosis, doesn't seem it's just what the doctor ordered. But it's awesome.

NBA's Thabo Sefolosha

Too Injured to Attend Playoff Games

... 'It's Killing Him'

5/16/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0515-MAIN-Thabo-Sefolosha-cast-INSTAGRAM-01ATL Hawks forward Thabo Sefalosha hasn't been able to attend a SINGLE playoff game due to the injuries he suffered during an altercation with the NYPD and he's "devastated" ... sources tell TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, Sefalosha claims he broke his right fibula and sustained ligament damage as cops tried to take him into custody following a stabbing outside of a nightclub last month. 

Thabo underwent surgery ... and sources tell us he's basically been relegated to his home to rest and recover ever since .... while his teammates have been tearing it up in the NBA playoffs. 

"It's killing him that he's not in the playoffs," one source close to Thabo tells us ... "He'd much rather be competing with his team."

Meantime, Sefalosha is still facing criminal charges from the night of the arrest -- obstruction of a police officer and disorderly conduct -- though we're told he's still fighting the case ... and expects to be vindicated

We also spoke with Thabo's lawyer who tells us he cannot comment on the criminal case but says, "They could really use Thabo in the series."

The Edge

Too Close to the Edge

Big Fall

5/15/2015 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Edge still can't find what he's looking for ... in this case, the rest of the stage.

U2 opened up its "Innocence + Experience" world tour Thursday in Vancouver. As the band played its iconic hit, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" ... Edge went flying offstage.

After the show he posted he was fine, writing, "Didn't see the edge, I'm ok!! #U2ieTour." Looks like his arm is badly scraped.

The band is already operating at less than 100% -- Bono suffered a terrible bike accident in NYC last November that required two surgeries.

'Mob Wives' Big Ang

Fingers Crossed ...

I'm One Step from Being Cancer-Free

EXCLUSIVE

Big Ang hit the Big Apple Wednesday night … a month and some change since having a nasty cancerous tumor removed from her throat.

Despite the intense surgery ... it's hard to see any scar, so it looks like the docs did good by the ‘Mob Wives’ star.

Ang gave our camera guy the low down on her road to cancer-freedom. It also looks like she's trying a new diet -- Ang posted a pic of herself hanging at Wild, a gluten-free Italian joint.

Big Ang ain't afraid of change.

Suge Knight

I Got My Mind Made Up

Don't Remove My Tupac Bullet!

5/14/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0513-suge-knight-tmz-01
Suge Knight
 has given doctors a piece of his mind ... refusing to have a bullet fragment removed that’s been lodged in his head for the past 19 years ... a bullet intended for Tupac Shakur.

Rewind to 1996 … Knight infamously drove the car carrying Tupac the night of the rap legend’s drive-by murder off the Las Vegas strip.

One of the bullets missed Tupac but grazed Suge's head; a fragment lodged in his skull, and was never removed.

0513-sub-tupac-suge-crime-scene-swipe-klas-01

Here's the problem. Suge's in bad shape as he lingers in a jail cell, and doctors want to perform an MRI so they can figure out why he keeps passing out. But the bullet fragment causes interference with the machine, so doctors want to remove it.  

Suge’s attorney, Matthew Fletcher, tells us Knight thinks he'll die if doctors start screwing with his head and try to remove the fragment, especially given his fragile state.

Aside from medical concerns, you gotta admit ... how cool is it to have a Tupac bullet in your head?

Johnny Depp

Accused of Pup Smuggling

Dogs Get Death Sentence

Captain Jack Sparrow got carried away with the smuggling -- Johnny Depp's 2 Yorkshire Terrier pups have a death sentence hanging over their heads because Depp allegedly snuck them into Australia.

Australian officials say Johnny and Amber Heard failed to declare Boo and Pistol when they arrived on a private jet last month. Under Australian law the dogs are supposed to be quarantined for a minimum of 10 days ... just to make sure they're not carrying any foreign diseases into the fragile ecosystem.

If Johnny, or more accurately ... Boo and Pistol don't hightail it out of Oz by Saturday -- the country's Agriculture minister says they will be put down.

A rep for Johnny -- who's down there shooting the 5th 'Pirates' flick -- told the AP the dogs are under a "home quarantine" ... but wasn't more specific than that.

Pretty harrrrsh sentence ... but Aussie officials say the law is the law.
