Miley Cyrus is in the hospital ... after a sudden and apparently severe allergic reaction to medicine.
Miley was in Kansas City for a concert Tuesday night on her Bangerz tour. It appears Miley was at the arena -- the Sprint Center -- when she fell ill. We're told she had a bad reaction to antibiotics.
Doctors ordered her on bed rest immediately.
Here's what's interesting ... A TMZ employee happens to be in Kansas City and just texted us an hour ago telling us Miley was out shopping with her mom ... so it seems whatever reaction she had was sudden.
The concert has been cancelled. She also cancelled her concert last Monday in Charlotte due to the flu.

4/15/2014 10:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Are You the One?" star Chris Tolleson was the one ... who along with a few friends, rescued a guy from a burning car just minutes before it burst into flames.
Tolleson tells TMZ he was in a car with a group of friends in Virginia Beach a few weeks back when they drove up to an accident scene and discovered a car that had just crashed into a tree ... and was ON FIRE.
Tolleson says he and his friends ran out of their car and found a guy unconscious in the passenger seat (there was no driver to be found) but the door was blocked by a tree. He says he and his friends pulled the tree back enough so they could open the door and dragged the guy out of the car.
After Tolleson says they dragged him 50 feet or so, he says they could hear the car starting to crackle, so they dragged him another 50 feet. Tolleson says the car blew up just a few minutes later.
Tolleson says his other two friends suffered first degree burns from the fire, while he got cut up from helping to remove the tree.
The victim suffered serious injuries. No word on his progress.

B.B. King is totally embarrassed by his subpar performance in St. Louis recently -- but his rep tells TMZ, he has a good excuse for sucking ... the blues legend was off his meds.
King's April 4th performance at the Peabody Opera House was meandering and stilted, he chatted with the audience more than he sang, people heckled him, and some even walked out. It was bad.
But a rep for B.B. -- who's 88 years old by the way -- tells us, "Mr. King suffers from diabetes -- and he mistakenly missed a dose of his prescribed medication on the show day."
In addition to his high blood sugar problem, King's rep says the singer was exhausted from a 1,600 mile bus trip from Vegas -- adding, "Simply put, it was a bad night for one of America's living blues legends -- and Mr. King apologizes and humbly asks for the understanding of his fans."
Now here's one of his best performances.

He landed in a construction area. We're told a third car was also involved, but damage to the other cars wasn't as bad.
Thankfully, we're told no one was injured. The fire department responded to the scene shortly afterward.

During Media Tour
4/12/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mema's temp was 104. She spent the night at the hospital and doctor's think the 12-hour-days media tour was just too much for her.

Watch the video to see what happens -- Clinton dodges it like a champ and then has some hilarious words for the audience.

4/10/2014 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Debbie Rowe has had a change of heart and decided to marry long-time friend Marc Schaffel ... and the flip flop has to do with her health.
Rowe -- who was famously married to Michael Jackson and had 2 kids while she was married to him -- tells TMZ ... when Schaffel gave her what looked like an engagement ring 3 weeks ago, she made it clear she would NOT marry him ... largely because she feared she had terminal cancer.
Rowe says she got the word from her doctors Wednesday ... she has sarcoidosis -- an auto-immune disease which is NOT cancer and not life-threatening.
She has decided to now say yes to Schaffel's proposal, telling TMZ, "He loves me, knows my kids, loves my kids and we'll see where this goes." Rowe says they have not set a date.
Mom Takes Her Off Meds
Despite Evidence of Mental Illness
4/10/2014 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Amanda Bynes' mother just came out publicly and said her daughter does NOT suffer from Schizophrenia or bipolar disorder -- she says the only problem Amanda had was weed -- but multiple sources tell TMZ ... that's just NOT true.
Amanda's mom says all her her daughter's problems emanated from marijuana, and she is now weed-free, so Amanda is off ALL medications. Lynn Bynes says, "She has no mental illness whatsoever."
We made the rounds again Wednesday ... and everyone we spoke with stands firm -- Amanda does suffer from Schizophrenia and Bipolarity. Beyond our sources, there's documented proof of mental illness.
-- Amanda was placed on an LPS Hold last year after a judge heard evidence in the psychiatric hospital where she was being held. According to California law, someone can be placed on an LPS Hold only when the person remains "gravely disabled as the result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism." As we reported, doctors presented evidence of grave mental illness.
-- Amanda's mom won a temporary conservatorship after a court-appointed investigator determined Amanda was severely mentally ill. The judge granted the conservatorship order not too long after Amanda soaked her dog in gasoline and almost lit it on fire.
-- Amanda's lawyers in both California and New York won delays in her criminal cases based on mental illness.
-- Sources directly connected to Amanda and her treatment tell TMZ Amanda was given a complex Rx cocktail in a Ventura County psych hospital specifically for Schizophrenia.
-- Amanda spent weeks at the UCLA psych ward and at times was so incoherent she had to be restrained. Amanda left after she became freaked out by other patients.
-- Sources tell us, during Amanda's stay at a Ventura County psych hospital, she would tell doctors about the "Bad Amanda" and mimicked an exorcism and began biting herself.
-- Tamar Arminak, the celebrity lawyer who reps Amanda's mom, tells TMZ, "Amanda is now on zero medication." Her mother believes all the talk about Schizophrenia is false and that's why she took her off the meds. The mom says she's had no psychotic episodes in the last few months.
Sources connected to Amanda tell us they are alarmed and fearful.

It's tough to be in Jennie Garth's world if you're black. First she says her African-American friends were denied at a Hollywood club, and now her black Goldendoodle gets rejected by a fancy rover.
Jennie was tooling around the San Fernando Valley with her pooch Wednesday ... when her dog Pearl tried jumping in the back of her Range Rover. It was a gnarly, failed attempt -- dog vs. rover, and rover won.
It seems Pearl was no worse for wear.
TMZ broke the story, Jenny stormed away from DBA nightclub Monday night ... the club takes issue with her veiled claim of racial discrimination. They say she played the "Do you know who I am" card and was told she had to wait in line like everyone else.
Ruff week for Jennie and her bitch.

Another warning sign -- when Warrior did his signature rope shake after his big speech on Monday Night Raw, he looked weak ... and people around him noticed.
One eyewitness put it this way ... "We all felt like he looked like he was going to blow a gasket. It was pretty easy to see."
It makes Warrior's speech on Monday Night Raw even more ominous ... "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath." 24 hours later he was dead.
TMZ broke the story ... Warrior was walking in a Scottsdale hotel Tuesday when he grabbed his chest and collapsed.
