Wade Robson says he feels LIBERATED after opening up about the alleged sex abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson on national TV ... and says he hopes he inspires other people to "speak their truth."
Robson had just landed at LAX yesterday after his big tell-all interview with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show -- and said he has no regrets about going public with his MJ accusations.
While Wade's story is under fire -- considering he so vehemently DEFENDED Michael during the 2005 molestation trial -- the dance choreographer says he hopes his decision to come forward will be viewed as inspirational.
"If my coming forward and speaking the truth can help, honestly, one [person] to gain courage to speak their truth and begin the healing process then that would really be more than I could ask."
George Michael was airlifted to a hospital yesterday after reportedly sustaining a head injury in a single-car accident in England ... but doctors say he's expected to be OK.
According to the singer's rep, Michael was a passenger in a Range Rover that crashed on the M1 motorway (a huge freeway) at around 5:50 PM local time.
The rep says no vehicles were involved in the crash. It's unclear exactly what caused the collision.
A rep for the emergency response crew released a statement saying, "[George] sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilisation and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to the hospital for further care."
Michael's spokesperson says the singer only suffered "superficial cuts" -- and was doing just fine.
So far, the driver of the Range Rover has not been identified.
Dick Trickle sounded extremely calm for a man planning to kill himself when he called 911 yesterday and told the operator, "There's going to be dead body ... suicide."
TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by the NASCAR driver moments before he shot himself. In the call, Trickle gave the dispatcher very detailed instructions about where to find the body at Forest Lawn Cemetery in North Carolina.
When the dispatcher asked Trickle if he was calling about someone else, Trickle replied, "No, I'm the one."
The operator begged Trickle to wait for help ... but her pleas went unanswered.
When emergency personnel arrived at the scene, Trickle's body was discovered right where he said it would be.
Officials say Trickle died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Kim Kardashian is NOT upset that Kanye West has decided to go on tour just a few months after the birth of their child ... because TMZ has learned, she plans to go with him, baby and all.
There are reports Kim felt like Kanye was abandoning her by scheduling a tour for his new album in October -- just three months after she's expected to give birth -- but sources close to the touring company tell us, that's not true ... because Kim and the baby are coming along for the ride.
Eazy-E doesn’t get the hip-hop cred he's due because he died of AIDS -- so say members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
“Some people seem like they are afraid to commemorate him due to how he died,” Bizzy Bone tells TMZ. “But Bone never once has -- nor will stop -- commemorating him.”
Eazy -- a founding member of N.W.A who discovered and mentored Bone Thugs -- died in 1995 at age 31. He left behind 7 kids with 6 different women.
But the guys from BT&H don't believe Eazy is getting the posthumous respect he deserves because of various stigmas attached to people who contract AIDS.
This sounds like a throwback to the dark ages ... the 1980s -- when people scoffed at the poor souls who died of AIDS because it was considered a "gay disease" ... and the guys from Bone Thugs are implying that Eazy is being unfairly painted with that brush.
In fact, Krayzie Bone tells us he thinks some people in the hip-hop community believe an AIDS death is an inferior, or less-manly way to die than say ... a shooting death -- like Biggie Smalls and Tupac.
"They died being known as gangsta heroes," Krayzie says ... "Eazy died from a disease ... so many look at that differently."
Flesh-n-Bone tells TMZ … the group plans to honor Eazy by performing “Foe Tha Love of $” with Eazy's hologram at the “Rock the Bells” festival in September and October.
“The success Eazy left to the rap game is enormous and can't be topped by anyone," Layzie Bone told TMZ. "We are going to make sure we have the stage full of Eazy love."
Breathe easy, James Deen ... Farrah Abraham is NOT PREGNANT ... not even a little bit, as far as she knows.
The "Teen Mom"-slash-porn-star pre-taped an episode of upcoming conflict resolution talk show "The Test," where producers convinced her to take one -- and it was NEGATIVE. (Trust us, that's a POSITIVE).
TMZ broke the story ... Abraham said she missed her period after making her porno with Deen. She was photographed while plunking down cash for an EPT at the drug store.
But Farrah told "The Test" host Kirk Fox that she never took that test (her explanation was WAY too convoluted to make any sense ... so we're going with "not enough cameras around").
We're told Farrah reacted indifferently. We can relate.
But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It's wrestling legend Jake The Snake!!! Because he's a freaking actor now!!!
Snake (real name Aurelian Smith Jr.) has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for decades -- but his rep tells TMZ, the 57-year-old has been sober for over 180 days ... and has decided to kick start his life by embarking on a new career ... as a thespian.
The rep says Jake has just started acting classes this week -- and hasn't locked down an agent yet -- but he's already been offered part in an independent film (probably playing some gruff old dude with a mustache).
Once Jake gets into the swing of things, we're told he's also planning to go on tons of auditions very soon ... TV, commercials, movies, you name it.
FYI, Jake and fellow wrestling legend/recovering addict Scott Hall are currently living with former wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, who has converted his Atlanta home into a kind of sober living facility.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning to take their newborn baby on the road during his worldwide tour! Is this a healthy decision for an infant?Plus, Eazy-E doesn't get enough respect in the rap community because he died of AIDS -- the guys from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony…
