Sarah Jessica Parker Blasts EpiPen She Promoted ... Forces Company's Hand

8/25/2016 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0825-Sarah-jessica-Parker-tmz-03Sarah Jessica Parker's so outraged about the price hike of the EpiPen, she pulled the plug on her relationship with the company ... and painted them into a corner.

Sarah ripped the pharmaceutical company Mylan for increasing the medicine's price by 500% since 2009. Her son has a peanut allergy, and she not only depends on EpiPen, but also was a paid spokesperson. Thursday morning she posted a scathing announcement that she was done working with Mylan. 

It's pretty shocking, 9 years ago an EpiPen reportedly cost $57 -- today a 2-pack goes for around $600.

Mylan felt the heat from Sarah and others -- including Hillary Clinton -- and hours after Sarah's post ... announced it would offer coupons, and take other steps, to help make the meds affordable. For the record, it's blaming health care system flaws for the price increase.

8/25/2016 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-kelly-michael-getty-02Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan's TV studio was a dark and dangerous place -- and not only because of their feud -- according to an audience member who says she had a trippy and painful experience.

The woman, named Judith, says her January 2014 visit to "Live with Kelly and Michael" included a hard fall on her ass, and she's blaming it on an incompetent employee leading her through a poorly lit area of the studio with cables all over the place. 

She's not specific about exactly how she went down, but in the lawsuit she just filed ... she mentions the words "negligent" and "negligence" dozens of times while describing the scene. She calls it "trap like" conditions.

In the docs, Judith says she suffered severe and permanent injury -- again, short on specifics. She's suing the show, Disney and ABC. Kelly and Michael are not named as defendants, so ... no chance for a reunion on the witness stand. 

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Sued Your Concert Cracked My Spine

Breaking News

0824-snoop-dogg-khalifa-tmz-01Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are being sued by 17 concertgoers who were injured when a front row railing collapsed at their New Jersey concert earlier this month.

You'll recall ... at least 40 people were hurt -- several had to be hospitalized -- when the crowd barrier gave out without warning. One of the victims says he suffered a fractured spine.

According to the suit, Snoop and Wiz yelled, "Everybody in the mother******* grass bring your ass down here" ... right before the collapse. The plaintiffs say that call to action caused the stampede which lead to the collapse.

Three of the plaintiffs were employees at the venue, BB&T Pavilion. Live Nation, which owns the venue, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. They say the company had made shoddy repairs on the railing in the last year.

After the collapse, people fell roughly 10 feet onto the concrete below, and the show ended abruptly.

Tre Mason's Mom to Cops Football Destroyed My Son ... 'He's Not Himself Anymore'

8/23/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tre Mason's mother has told police ... her son should NOT be playing football anymore -- because the head injuries he suffered in the NFL have had a devastating impact on his mental health. 

TMZ Sports has obtained police footage from a July 27th incident when cops cited the L.A. Rams running back for illegally riding his ATV around his neighborhood in Palm Beach, Florida. 

When they got to his home, cops told his family they were concerned Mason was too busy "f***ing around" and "should be playing football."

That's when Tre's mother dropped some real talk on the cops. 

"No, he actually shouldn't," she said ..."because this is the [side of] football that nobody knows about."

"He's 22 in a 10-year-old's mindset right now ... Tre's not himself at all."

Tre's mother says the family could see an obvious change in Tre's personality after the 2015 NFL season ended.

As we previously reported, Tre has been at the center of several police incidents in the past few months -- and his family clearly believes football is the root of the problem.

The Rams say they have not been in touch with Mason since last season -- and judging by the video, it doesn't seem like they'll ever hear from him again.

'Rica Famosa Latina' Brawl Real Blood and Broken Glass ... Take THAT 'Housewives'

8/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Two of the 'Rica Famosa Latina' stars turned a scripted fight into a very real, very gangsta showdown that landed one of 'em in the hospital with a bloodied face.

Cast members Sandra and Victoria were taping a scene at a fashion event in Culver City when the brawl started. According to the police report, producers had planned (yes, that's how reality shows really work) to shoot the women arguing over a dress. 

We're told Victoria was supposed to throw a glass of wine on a mannequin, and then Sandra would throw a glass of wine back at Victoria.

0819-victoria-vs-sandra-rica-famosa-latina-01But Sandra went off script, according to cops ... attacking Victoria by smashing the wine glass over her head and then cutting her with the jagged, broken end. Victoria was rushed to a hospital with cuts on her head and chest.

Despite the injuries, law enforcement sources tell us neither women will be charged. They're chalking it up to mutual combat for a TV show. BTW ... way better combat than the 'Real Housewives' typically offer.

¡Esto es showbiz, chica!

Katt Williams He Wouldn't Hit a Brain Surgery Patient, Would He?

8/19/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-katt-williams-tmz-01Katt Williams unloaded a punch that sent a man back to the hospital, a couple months after the guy had brain surgery.

At least that's what Paul Love says happened to him in a new lawsuit. Love is the pool supply store employee who was allegedly assaulted when Katt got arrested earlier this year in Georgia.

In the suit, Love says Katt flew into a rage because he canceled his order twice, and Katt thought the screwup was racially motivated. He says Katt hurled a bunch of store items, and then punched him in the face.   

Katt copped to socking Love, but insists Love called him the n-word. Love denies that.

What's more ... Love says he was on doctor's orders to avoid stress or excessive force to the head ... due to the brain surgery he'd had just 10 weeks before the Katt run-in. He's suing Katt for physical pain and unspecified damages.

We don't wanna say Paul Love should get in line, but if we're keeping it real ... 

Shannen Doherty Not Too Sick For Depo in Cancer Suit ... Ex-Manager Claims

8/17/2016 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0817-shannen-doherty-instagramLawyers for Shannen Doherty's ex-manager want a few more hours to grill her, and they're not buying any claims she's too sick from her cancer treatments to do it.

Steven Blatt filed docs asking for up to 4 more hours to depose Shannen in her lawsuit against his management firm, in which she accuses Blatt of mismanaging her insurance premiums.

Blatt's side already deposed Shannen for 7 hours -- the standard time allotted in California -- but that can be extended, and Blatt says his motion should be granted since Shannen's illness hasn't stopped her from partying left and right.

According to the docs, Blatt claims days before and after her first deposition, Shannen posted social media pics of herself enjoying the nightlife in NYC and Pittsburgh ... and even traveled to Australia for a fan convention.  

Blatt adds she's done plenty of TV interviews too, so sitting a few more hours for questions shouldn't be a big deal. 

Shannen's fired back in docs ... saying it's insulting Blatt insinuated she's not that sick, because she's living her life. She thinks the 7 hour grilling was more than enough, and says she doesn't owe Blatt any more time.

We'll see what the judge thinks.

EXCLUSIVE

0808-sub-dummy-godzilla-tmzThis ain't no stunt -- a dummy's brains were blown to smithereens when the car in which it was riding got in a car wreck.

The stunt dummy was a passenger along with Japanese filmmaker Ryuhei Kitamura -- the man behind "Godzilla: Final Wars" -- when the driver swerved to avoid an object in the road ... then smashed into the center divider on an L.A. street.

The dummy was rigged to have it's brains blown out for a pivotal scene in "DOWNRANGE" ... but the wreck triggered deployment. It'll now take 2 weeks to wrangle a new dummy ... which will set production back $30k.

As for Ryuhei ... he was taken to a hospital but seems to be in good spirits after joking he was offended the insurance company was more concerned about the prop than him.
