Aaron Carter Hospitalized After Getting Bullied

6/23/2017 7:04 AM PDT

Aaron Carter ended up in the hospital, apparently for exhaustion, following a concert -- the cherry on top of an awful night, which he says included some major body shaming.

The singer performed at the HOT 107.9 concert in Syracuse Thursday night and afterward said he was headed to the ER for a checkup ... something about staying strong following a string of shows.

He also revealed he had a run-in with a fan who said he looks like he has cancer. Aaron says the fan was talking to someone else, and didn't realize he was listening, but added ... he needed to eat 5 cheeseburgers because it looks like he's dying.

Aaron took it hard, saying ... "They literally won't stop bullying me" and "I'm sorry I'm not fat enough."

Bob Barker Heads to ER After Bathroom Fall

6/19/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bob Barker had a nasty fall at home that scared him, so paramedics came and he took a trip to the ER.

We've learned the TV legend was in the bathroom of his Hollywood Hills home last week when he slipped, fell and hit his head. He called 911 and paramedics showed up to check him out but he didn't want them taking him to the hospital by ambulance, so his housekeeper drove him.

We're told there was no blood or visible injuries but Bob was pretty shaken, which is understandable after he took a nasty fall and split his head open back in October 2015.

The 93-year-old spent a couple hours in the ER and underwent a bunch of tests. Good news ... he's ok.

No word if Adam Sandler paid him another visit.

Lionel Richie's Bassist 911 Call ... Caller 'Can't Explain' Stabbing Situation

6/18/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The man who called for help when Lionel Richie's bassist, Ethan Farmer, allegedly stabbed himself after eating marijuana edibles may have been under the influence himself ... based on the 911 call.

We broke the story ... cops say Farmer was chowing down on pot cookies or brownies with friends when he turned violent and repeatedly stabbed himself.

The shocking nature of the situation was apparently too much to put into words for the guy who called 911, who simply said "I don't know" and "I can't explain it" when trying to describe the scene.

He also couldn't answer why a woman was screaming in the background or come up with Farmer's age.

Last we heard, the 42-year-old musician is recovering from his injuries.

Linda Kirsch claims back in June 2016 she was enjoying a performance of  "Swan Lake," when she was attacked by a guy who unleashed a karate chop from behind to both of her shoulders. She doesn't say what provoked the attack.

Kirsch says she thinks the man works for either The Met or the Lincoln Center ... when in doubt, you sue both.

She thinks there was a flaw in the hiring process and believes proper vetting would have revealed the dude has a propensity for violence.

Kirsch claims she suffered great physical pain and mental anguish. 

We've reached out to both companies ... so far no word back.

Delta Airlines Sued Stray Needle in Seat Pocket Forced Me to Get HIV Testing

6/13/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Delta Airlines missed a needle that was left in a seat pocket, and an unsuspecting guest got stuck by it -- leading to a year of HIV testing ... according to a lawsuit.

In docs, Gabriel Ybarra says he was flying from LAX to Atlanta in 2015 when he reached into a seat pocket to grab his wallet, and got stabbed by the needle. He says he had to pull the needle out of his right middle finger, which started "bleeding profusely."

Ybarra says "his life flashed in front of him." When he went to a doctor he says he had to undergo a battery of tests, and take powerful meds to ensure he didn't contract anything, especially HIV.

According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, he says the meds caused months of dizziness, headaches, body aches and "explosive diarrhea." He also says he couldn't perform "his duties as a husband to his wife for months." 

Ybarra and his wife filed the suit. A Delta spokesman wouldn't comment specifically about the lawsuit, but said it's "dismayed by what this customer describes in the suit. The safety and security of our customers and employees is always Delta’s top priority."  

1-800-Flowers Sued Your Vase Imploded on me And Now My Life's a Mess

6/12/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1-800-Flowers may be in hot water after one of its vases imploded in a customer's hands ... so claims the customer in a new lawsuit.

Martha Nippert claims she suffered a "severe and debilitating laceration of a tendon in her middle finger" when a flower-filled vase delivered to her home shattered in her hands.

She says when the flowers were delivered she removed the arrangement from its packaging and took it to her kitchen sink, adding fresh water -- up to the halfway point on the vase. She says she put her hands on the vase to carry it to the dining room, and that's when it imploded.

Nippert says the injury was devastating, in no small part because she's a professional illustrator and designer and lost work. She also says the surgeon told her she'll never regain full range of motion.

That's not all. She says she couldn't nurse her newborn because she was on pain meds. And it was virtually impossible for her to do simple household chores with only her left arm.

We've reached out to 1-800-Flowers, so far no word back.
