0729-justin-turner-getty-01L.A. Dodgers 3rd baseman Justin Turner shoulda oxy-cuted the massive pimple on his leg -- because it got infected ... and things got so bad, he was taken to the EMERGENCY ROOM!!!

It's pretty gross ... Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Turner noticed something was wrong on his inner thigh on Sunday -- and was given medicine, but it didn't heal. 

In fact, things got even worse -- so, he was taken to an emergency room where he was treated for an infection ... stemming from the pimple ... and missed the Dodgers game on Tuesday night. 

Justin later said the pimple was an ingrown hair that "blew up" and got infected. 

Turner was given a ton of medicine and is now out of the hospital and "day-to-day."

The rep says the 63-year-old actor is "healthy as ever," despite his ghostly appearance in the pic. The rep adds Neeson changed his diet and started doing more exercise about a year ago and credits that for the weight loss. 

Plus, the rep says ... it's just an unflattering pic. 

Apparently one of Neeson's "particular skills" ... is not always taking a great photo.

Whitney Houston's Daughter

Bobbi Kristina

Dead at 22

EXCLUSIVE

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter Bobbi Kristina has died at the age of 22.

She passed away outside Atlanta in the hospice care facility where she's been since June 24 ... when her family decided to take her off all meds. As we first reported, a specialist had told them there was no chance of recovery

The family says Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by family and, "She is finally at peace in the arms of God."

Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31, and police believe she was underwater for anywhere between 2 and 5 minutes. Paramedics were able to resuscitate her, but she was in a medically induced coma and placed on life support. 

Ultimately, Pat Houston and Bobby -- co-guardians for Bobbi Kristina -- had to make the decision to withdraw medications. It was a rare moment of agreement for the Browns and Houstons ... who had battled about BK's condition throughout her hospitalization.

TMZ broke the story ... the D.A. has been gearing up for a murder case, and her boyfriend Nick Gordon would be their first person of interest. Police said there were bruises on Bobbi Kristina's face and body after Gordon and a friend, Max Lomas, found her in the tub.

Of course, Whitney died from a drug overdose in 2012 while sitting in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

0722-nick-cannon-brighten-instagram-02Nick Cannon is NOT as Ncredible as he thought -- he landed in the hospital on Wednesday after "grinding" on job after job after job. 

Cannon posted a pic of himself in a hospital bed, hooked up to a bunch of monitors. He wasn't specific about what's ailing him ... but hinted it was somehow related to exhaustion.

The "America's Got Talent" host said, "I really think I'm a superhero" ... and compared himself to Batman.

Suge Knight

My Toilet Is Possessed ...

Oh Yeah, I May Have a Brain Tumor

7/17/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0716-suge-knight-flushing-toilet-fun-art-GETTY-01update_graphic_red_bar9 AM PT -- Suge's request to move to a new facility was denied during a hearing in L.A. Ditto for his attempt to reduce bail.update_grey_gray_bar

Suge Knight's life in prison is rough ... not only does he have to deal with a toilet that flushes incessantly ... he might -- MIGHT -- have a brain tumor.

Knight's new attorney, Tom Mesereau of Michael Jackson fame, filed new docs to get Knight into better digs at the jail, for both medical and sanity reasons.

Suge's lawyer claims Suge is going crazy because the toilet in his cell flushes every 20 minutes -- on its own -- all day and all night.

To make matters even worse, the jail bed isn't long enough to hold his 6'2" frame.

So Suge wants a new cell that doesn't drive him crazy and allows him to get a good night's sleep.

Even more serious -- Mesereau says Suge suffers from numbness on one entire side of his body and doctors have told him he might have a brain tumor. As such, he wants a place that has full access to a competent medical facility.

He's currently locked up on $10 million bail.

Comforts Bobbi Kristina

In After-Hours Visit

7/16/2015 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It now appears the mysterious tent that was erected outside the hospice caring for Bobbi Kristina had no connection to her, because her aunt paid a late night visit on Wednesday. 

Pat Houston showed up to spend time with her niece, who is now off meds after doctors made it clear there's no real hope for recovery

As for the tent, it appears the facility constructed it to shield other patients and their families from the media.
