'Harry Potter' Actor Tearful Reunion With Pooch After Near-Fatal Car Crash

3/22/2017 10:37 AM PDT

'Harry Potter' actor Jim Tavaré is slowly recovering from the car accident that sent him to ICU for 2 weeks, and this week he got a dose of love from his pooch.

For the first time since the accident, Jim was taken outside of the hospital in a wheelchair to be reunited with his dog, Mr Kippy, who was more than ecstatic to see his master.

Mr Kippy had been in the car during Jim's head-on collision. Both miraculously survived ... the dog more unscathed than Jim, who is still mending from a broken neck and several other broken bones, as well as collapsed lungs.

He already looks better than he did weeks ago.

'Cash Me Outside' Girl Angry at Ex-BFF For Leaking Fight Video with Mom

Exclusive Details

"Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bergoli says video showing her getting a beatdown from her mom is the handiwork of a former bff out for revenge.

The video is graphic, showing Danielle's mom, Barbara Ann, pinning her daughter to the ground, almost like an MMA fight ... calling her a "bitch."

Sources close to Danielle's  family tell TMZ ... the video was leaked by a girl who was angry because Danielle's mom kicked her out of their home.  

We're told the video -- which first surfaced Tuesday on WorldStarHipHop -- captured an incident that occurred 1 to 2 years ago, which would mean Danielle would have been 11 or 12. We're told neither Danielle nor her mom remember what triggered the fight.

It's unclear if the video has triggered a Children's Services or police investigation.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross says his wife is "being kept alive via life support equipment" after a bad car accident earlier this week ... and is now describing her brain injury as "catastrophic."

As we previously reported, Jan Ross was riding her Vespa home from the gym Monday night when she was struck from behind by another car. She was not wearing a helmet and suffered multiple skull fractures. 

Jim says Jan is still hospitalized in Oklahoma and her life is in serious danger. 

"We hope that the swelling of Jan's brain will subside soon as it must for her to survive," Jim explained in a blog post ... "It's that simple."

"Nonetheless my little, Italian angel who loves her Steelers and all things Pittsburgh is fighting for all's she worth to save her life."

Jim added, "I will fully admit that there has been no experience in my life that could have prepared me for this life changing week. To see one's life partner and love of one's life being kept alive via life support equipment is tragically heartbreaking."

"My wife would be so moved to know how many of you are praying for her."

0322_Vince-Jones_big_rig-historyVince Jones -- who stars on History Channel's "Big Rig Bounty Hunters" -- died at his home in Delaware, OH on Wednesday  ... TMZ has learned.

The family believes it was a heart attack.

Vince's daughter just got married last Saturday, and we're told he was fine at the wedding.

Wyclef Jean Sheriffs Lied About Traffic Stop

3/22/2017 6:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wyclef Jean says L.A. County Sheriff's deputies flat-out lied about his traffic stop to cover their asses.

Wyclef tells TMZ, he doesn't really have a problem with the fact he was stopped in West Hollywood early Tuesday after someone dressed similar to him and driving a similar car committed an armed robbery.

The singer has big issues with the Sheriffs' narrative -- that he was furtive, went to his trunk and refused to move his hands away from his waistband. Wyclef calls BS, saying the cops were all over him the second they stopped the car and he had no chance of going to the trunk.

Wyclef says the Sheriffs have committed character assassination and he's now considering legal action ... not for the stop, but for what he says are the blatant lies.update_graphic_red_bar7:02 AM PT -- The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. has doubled down, saying they are sticking with their story that Wyclef went to his trunk and ignored demands to move his hands away from his waistband.  They also say they'd love to talk with him to clear the air.update-grey-gray-bar

El Chapo Feds Want to Root Out Moles On Legal Team

3/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0321_El-Chapo_gettyEl Chapo could compromise hundreds, possibly thousands of federal drug investigations with a well-placed mole on his legal team ... that's the fear of federal officials.

We've learned Chapo's legal team will become privy to thousands of sensitive DEA documents that chronicle his activities in the international drug trade. The worry ... that the lawyers Chapo hires will use the info to warn other drug kingpins of the DEA's moves, compromising the investigations.

Prosecutors went to court and asked the federal judge in Brooklyn who is presiding over Chapo's drug trafficking case to allow them to screen every potential foreign lawyer on Chapo's legal team to make sure they're on the up-and-up.

The judge issued an order, obtained by TMZ, in which he allowed them to appoint a specific lawyer to do the screening.

Turns out, there's even a special name for this type of lawyer -- a "firewall attorney." It's someone who works in the U.S. Attorney's Office but is not involved in the Chapo case. It does raise questions ... they're all in the same office, after all. Nonetheless, the judge approved it.

If the firewall attorney thinks one or more of Chapo's lawyers are shady, a recommendation will go to the judge who could prevent the lawyer from joining the defense team.
