Plane Crashes

[Video Update: Paramedics Treat Harrison]

3/5/2015 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar6:20 PM PT -- A rep for Ford says, "Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which stalled upon takeoff." They added, "He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely.  The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."

5:05 PM PT -- TMZ just obtained video of first responders on the scene treating Harrison ... just yards away from the plane he just crash landed on the golf course.

5:00 PM PT -- Harrison's son Ben just tweeted, "At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is."

4:30 PM PT -- We've obtained intense audio of Harrison talking to the Santa Monica Airport control tower just moments after he'd taken off. Listen ... you hear him report engine failure and request an emergency return to the airport. 

4:41 PM PT --  A witness who was golfing at the time of the crash tells us she heard the engine sputter ... and watched the plane do a "nose dive straight on the 8th hole tee box."

The witness adds, "I was one of the first people to run from the hole toward the plane. 4 to 5 men pulled the pilot out of the plane."

"They got him away from the plane. They were concerned it would catch on fire."

"Two doctors were there – and they had a 1st aid box with them. He was conscious, talking a little -- a HUGE cut on his head."

The witness tells us the cut was VERY deep -- "A swath of his skin was missing. There was blood dripping down his face."update_grey_gray_barA small plane piloted by Harrison Ford has crash-landed at an L.A. golf course ... but we're told the actor has survived. 

TMZ has learned ... Ford was piloting what appears to be a vintage 2-seater fighter plane Thursday ... when something went wrong and he crashed into Penmar golf course in Venice, CA. Remarkably, it appears Ford veered off course from the runway in order to avoid crashing into homes.

0305_plane_and_runway_foxWe're told Ford suffered multiple gashes to his head and was bleeding. Two doctors who happened to be at the golf course rushed over to treat the actor. 

Emergency personnel arrived to the scene a short time later. Ford was transported to a nearby hospital. 

72-year-old Ford is a longtime aviator -- piloting planes and helicopters -- and has crashed multiple times in the past.

Bobbi Kristina

Browns & Houstons Gather

For Bittersweet 22nd B-Day

3/5/2015 11:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0307-bobbi-brown-splashBobby Brown was the one given a gift on Bobbi Kristina's 22nd birthday ... he was allowed to gather both sides of the family together to celebrate her special day.

Sources close to the family say Bobby and his wife, Alicia Etheredge, were allowed to invite several members of the Brown family to join them, along with the Houstons -- who've been at the hospital every day -- for Bobbi Kristina's birthday vigil.

Tyler Perry and Bobby's brother Tommy were among the family and friends who joined them at Emory University Hospital Wednesday for cake and some semblance of normalcy during this difficult situation.

As you know ... Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31 ... and has been in a medically induced coma and on life support ever since.

Chris Noth

Mr. Big No Longer Pimpin'

Just Limpin'

3/5/2015 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0307-chris-north-cane-splashBad news ladies, Mr. Big from "Sex and the City" is now walking with a big cane.

Chris Noth's been pulling off the sexy distinguished gentleman thing for years -- but Wednesday he was spotted in NYC's East Village with a new prop.

We're guessing the 60-year-old  'Good Wife' star's limp is just a temporary thing ... at least for the sake of lady boners, everywhere. 

Nick Gordon

I'm Spilling Bobbi Kristina Secrets

... to Dr. Phil

3/4/2015 4:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Gordon Bobbi Kristina Dr PhilNick Gordon will finally tell his version of events that led to Bobbi Kristina face down in a bathtub near death, but he won't be telling cops ... he'll be yakking to Dr. Phil

We're told Phil will meet Nick in the next few days and they will set a time for the formal sit-down. We're told the good doctor will ask about his battles with Bobby Brown and family ... battles that have kept him from Bobbi Kristina's hospital bed.  

Here's the tricky part. Nick is the target of a criminal investigation that was launched when authorities noticed that Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries. As the saying goes ... whatever Nick says can be held against him, and it would be weird, to say the least, if Nick pled the 5th on Phil's show. 

And finally, warning to Dr. Phil ... Nick has proven flaky in the past, so cross your fingers and hope he shows.

Bobby Brown

Birthday Vigil for Bobbi Kristina

... And HIS Family's Invited

3/4/2015 9:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0304-bobby-brown-splash-01Bobby Brown looked understandably drained as he left the Atlanta hospital where Bobbi Kristina remains in a coma -- and we've learned he's been busy planning a vigil for her birthday.

Bobbi Kristina turns 22 today ... and sources tell us her father has invited several of his family members to join him at the hospital. 

That's unusual because while Houston family members have been at the hospital every day -- Bobby and his wife were the only family members from his side allowed at Bobbi Kristina's bedside.

We're told exceptions are being made because Bobby wants everyone to come together for the birthday.

NFL's Chris Johnson

WORKOUT 'TIL YOU PUKE!

(Or At Least Dry Heave!)

3/3/2015 6:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here's NFL running back Chris Johnson working out SO DAMN HARD at an L.A. gym Monday, he went and dry-heaved in the parking lot ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Johnson was haulin' kettlebells outside of the Unbreakable Performance Gym in West Hollywood -- where trainers pushed him to the brink of hurl city. 

Now, we never saw Johnson actually blow chunks ... but he was close ... and eventually got back to the weights to finish his workout like the monster that he is.  

Fun Fact -- Unbreakable is same place where Diddy raced (and BEAT) NFL star Dashon Goldson in an uphill sprint last month!

Bobby Brown
's family is grieving over the dire circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ... and we've learned they're also shooting a reality show.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life.

Bobby's lawyer tells TMZ his client will NOT appear on the show.

Bobby's sisters have a history. Leolah is the one who went on the record blaming Ray J for Whitney Houston's death, claiming he fatally fueled her cocaine habit.

Tina is the one who did a sit-down interview and claimed she did crack with Whitney. Tina and Shayne are also the ones who fought at a hotel near the hospital. She hit her son Shayne with a bottle. It's unclear if that will be on the show.

It appears that they have not shot video in the hospital, but we're told they have regular debriefs at home on camera where they talk about the tragedy.

I'm Going Blind

3/2/2015 1:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0302-suge-knight-Getty-01Suge Knight says he's going blind from lack of medical care behind bars ... and he had to be hospitalized again.

Knight reportedly spoke on his own behalf Monday in court -- after he fired the lawyers handling his case -- and said he was receiving inadequate treatment in jail. Moments later he was taken to the hospital.

Sources tell us a doctor informed the rap mogul on Friday his eyesight was getting really bad. Suge reportedly shared that info in court before he was hospitalized.

As we previously reported ... Suge was taken to the hospital for a panic attack following a court appearance last month.  A few weeks later he missed one altogether after he was rushed to the hospital for injuries related to his shooting last summer.

Suge has been in jail since January when he was arrested for backing up his truck over two men ... one of whom died.

Brownstone Singer

Death by Wine Glass Was Freaky

But No Signs of a Crime

3/2/2015 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-charmayne-maxwell-INSTAGRAM-01R&B singer Charmayne Maxwell's death in her home appears to be an almost one in a million accident, and nothing sinister ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us detectives combed the scene where the ex-Brownstone singer fell on Friday evening -- and say all evidence points to her falling backward at the doorway between the house and the back patio ... while holding a wine glass.

We're told during the fall ... the wine glass shattered on the ground behind Maxwell's head, and when she landed shards of glass punctured the back of her neck in two places. We're told there was an injury to the back of her head, and it's possible she was knocked unconscious. 

TMZ broke the story ... Charmayne's husband Carsten Soulshock came home and found her bleeding around 9 PM Friday. We're told cops interviewed him and several other family members ... and say there's no history of domestic violence. They do not suspect foul play.

The one remaining mystery is what caused the fall -- and we're told one theory is she was intoxicated. The coroner now has her body, and will conduct an autopsy and toxicology test which could answer that question.

3/1/2015 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0301-charmayne-maxwell-INSTAGRAM-01Charmayne Maxwell -- part of the 90s R&B group Brownstone -- died Friday night in L.A. after her husband found her bleeding from a cut to her neck  ... TMZ has learned.

A family member tells us Charmayne had come home from her son's soccer game, and was home alone with him. Later in the evening ... around 9 PM her husband, music producer Carsten Soulshock, came home and found her unconscious and bleeding.

We're told it looked like Charmayne had fallen and cut her neck on glass ... she was bleeding profusely, but still had a pulse. Carsten called 911, and paramedics transported her to Cedars Sinai Hospital ... but she had lost too much blood. We're told she died on the way to the hospital.

LAPD went to the home ... and tell us it was a broken wine glass that cut Charmayne's neck. Detectives do not suspect foul play.

The group -- which was on Michael Jackson's MJJ Music label -- had its biggest hit with 1995's "If You Love Me." They earned a Billboard Music Award and a Grammy nomination for the song.

Michael Bay

Building Mansion Was Pain, No Gain ...

Construction Worker Sues

3/1/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227-michael-bay-tmz-01
Building Michael Bay's new mansion transformed a construction worker into an injured mess ... according to a new lawsuit filed by the guy.  

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the worker says Bay didn't warn him about a dangerous hole on the property ... which was covered with plastic back in February 2013. In the suit, he says he tumbled through the opening, and was seriously injured. 

The worker isn't specific about his injuries in the lawsuit, but says he was hospitalized ... and paid out of pocket for his medical expenses. He also says he couldn't work while he was injured. He's suing to get reimbursed for his medical bills ... as well as damages. 

The mansion's been a long, slow, ordeal for the blockbuster director. He bought the property way back in 2009, demolished the home that was there, and eventually started construction on the new crib.

We reached out to Bay and his rep ... but so far, no word back. 

Lil Boosie

Hospitalized For Dehydration

EXCLUSIVE

0228-lil-boosie-tmz-01Lil Boosie was hospitalized Friday in North Carolina after falling victim to the same thing that continues to plague entertainers on the road ... dehydration. 

Boosie tells TMZ ... he started feeling frail and weak while on his way to a show in Charlotte -- and it got bad enough that he decided to go to a hospital to get checked out. He says doctors told him he was extremely dehydrated ... and hooked him up with intravenous fluids.

His Charlotte gig had to be canceled, but on Saturday morning docs released him and he's currently trying to rush to a concert he has scheduled for tonight in Georgia.

Boosie tells us he's feeling better and ready to continue touring ... with lots of water.

Bobbi Kristina

No Signs of Improvement

Still in a Coma

2/26/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0225-bobbi-kristina-instagram-01

Bobbi Kristina is not getting better. She is still unresponsive, in a coma, and showing no signs of getting better.

Family sources tell TMZ ... stories that Bobbi Kristina is being taken out of her coma are not accurate. We're told the only change in treatment is that doctors tried weaning her off certain meds to see if she might react but nothing happened. She's in the same condition she's been in for weeks.

Our sources say there have been signs of organ deterioration but she's still basically in the same, unresponsive condition she's been in since a few days after the accident.

As for the tracheotomy, we're told doctors performed the procedure not because she was getting better, but because it's standard operating procedure when a patient might linger in a comatose state for a long period of time.

Our sources say it's possible Bobbi Kristina could hang on for a long period of time in the same state, despite signs of organ failure. It's ultimately up to Bobby Brown to decide how long she'll live in that state.
