'Married to Medicine' Stars

My Wife Spooned Me

Then Stabbed Herself

8/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827-jill-connors-mug-adps-01

A star of "Married to Medicine" needs another doctor for several reasons: 1) she's divorcing her hubby 2) she has multiple knife wounds.

Jill Connors and hubby Dr. John Connors were at home August 13 when he saw text messages on her phone from another man and confronted her. According to the police report obtained by TMZ, John said if she was cheating he'd take the kids.  

John claims that set Jill off and she struck him in the face with a spoon and then started slugging him. He says she ripped his shirt off and scratched his chest. BTW, Jill is 5'2" and 103 lbs.

According to John, Jill then took a kitchen knife and started cutting herself in the arm and chest, screaming, "He's cutting me!"

John called 911 and when the cops came Jill was mostly contrite, saying, "I hit him, I started it, I know." She did, however, claim he knifed her but her story was sketchy and cops didn't believe her.

Jill was arrested for domestic violence and, since the kids were watching, cruelty to children.

She filed for divorce on the 19th.

Zak Bagans

I Bought Dr. Kevorkian's

Death Mobile!

8/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827-MAIN-Zak-Bagans-jack-kevorkian-van-AP-TWITTER-01Zak Bagans is adding another twisted piece of history to his growing collection ... he's the proud owner of Dr. Jack Kevorkian's former mobile death assistance laboratory.

Zak says when he heard Les Gold from Detroit's "Hardcore Pawn" was selling the 1968 VW van ... he snatched it up for $32,500.

Dr. Kevorkian used the van during his string of 130 assisted suicides before his own unassisted death in 2011.

Zak also got the original registration and a copy of Jack's driver's license. The bad news ... the van doesn't run.

This is the second piece of historical gore the "Ghost Adventures" star scooped up this year ... back in March he bought the cauldron serial killer Ed Gein used to secrete dismembered body parts.   

We're told Zak plans to use the van for a paranormal project.

Young Buck

Judge Not that Pee-o'd

Over Fake Urine Test

8/28/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826-young-buck-getty-02Young Buck will not be going to prison for playing dirty with his pee.

Buck was facing 5 years for trying to pass off someone else's urine as his own during a random drug test in his weapons case. He brought someone else's pee to the probation department in a plastic bag and tried to pass it off as his own ... but he got caught.

The judge showed mercy, agreeing with prosecutors that rehab was more appropriate than prison. As Bossip first reported ... Buck must complete a treatment program, 100 hours of community service and pay a $7.5k fine. 

Young Buck ... urine the judge's good graces ... for now.

Cheetos’ Chester Cheetah

I Got Maced

Over Serious Dog Issues

8/28/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827-chester-cheetos-voice-actor-GETTY-FRITOLAY-01Chester Cheetah confronted a neighborhood bully about his barking dogs but got maced in the face instead ... so he says.

Adam Leadbeater, the voice actor behind the Cheetos mascot, says he got pepper sprayed in his PJs when he tried reasoning with his neighbor's son about their barking dogs.

Leadbeater said he couldn't defend himself because he has a condition which prevents him from closing his left eye.

He says he thought the neighbor was about to pull a gun, but instead got hosed with a can of mace.

Leadbeater got a restraining order against the neighbor, so looks like the guy was messing with the wrong cat.

Jerry Bruckheimer

Sued, Handyman Claims

'You Put Me in a Hole!'

8/27/2015 1:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827_jerry-bruckheimer_TMZJerry Bruckheimer is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood who can make careers, and now a guy is suing him because he couldn't get his foot in the door. 

Isidro Jauregui -- a handyman -- claims he was at Bruckheimer's LA pad in December 2014 when he was invited to come in through the sliding glass door. According to the lawsuit, there was a metal plate at the base of the door, covering a 2-foot hole.

Jauregui says he stepped on the plate and it shifted, sending him down into the hole.  

It's also unclear what injuries he suffered, although he does say they were "severe."

Jauregui doesn't say exactly how much he wants, but worst case scenario ... Jerry can cover it.

T-Raww walked out of a Calabasas bank Thursday afternoon with a wad of hundos and he made sure to flash it for cameras.

Doesn't look like the nearly $300k he spent on Kylie Jenner's Ferrari and the thousands in back rent he owes are slowing him down in the cash department ... he also sped off in a Bentley.

EXCLUSIVE

0827_bruce_jenner_accident_splash-2It sounds bizarre on the surface, but the driver of the Lexus who was killed after Caitlyn Jenner plowed into her is being sued for $18.5 MILLION ... claiming she was negligent when her car careened into oncoming traffic and struck a Hummer.

The estate of Kim Howe just got hit with 5 creditors' claims ... filed by the 5 occupants of the Hummer.

As you know, the force and trajectory of initial impact pushed the Lexus into the Hummer on PCH last February. 

In the creditors' claims, the Hummer passengers allege Kim Howe was negligent, claiming she caused the collision. The claims are not specific.

We're told the Hummer occupants will sue Jenner as well at a later time.

The 5 day sentence was delayed for nearly a year-and-a-half, but today, Joe's in jail.
