A shocking video captured the last moments of a man swimming in Egypt's Red Sea as a vicious shark attack unfolded in front of horrified onlookers.
The clip, which we're not showing because it's just that graphic, began circulating online Thursday from the resort city of Hurghada. You can see a man treading water, as a shark continues to attack him ... biting him several times. At one point, the shark pulls the man upside down, forcing both of his legs above the surface in a headstand formation.
The woman recording can do nothing but gasp, as the man screams out in pain for help.
Finally, in what appears to be one final strike ... the shark pounces on the man's upper torso and takes him under the surface.
A statement from Egypt's Ministry of Environment stated it's believed the attack was from a tiger shark, and the man died from his injuries.
As a result of the attack, a massive stretch of the beach has been closed until at least Sunday.
Esports star Karel Asenbrener -- famously known as "Twisten" -- died at 19 years old on Tuesday ... shortly after he posted a chilling tweet that read nothing more than "Good night."
Twisten's gaming org, Team Vitality, made the heartbreaking announcement on Wednesday ... saying its "deeply saddened" by the "devastating loss" of its star.
"Our first thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends in this difficult time," the French esports team wrote in a statement. "Rest in peace Karel."
One of the organization's coaches, Harry "Gorilla" Mepham, said in a tweet that Asenbrener had died by suicide.
"Words can not describe the grief or emptiness i’m feeling right now," Mepham said. "I loved him and forever will."
In its announcement of Asenbrener's passing, Team Vitality also shared a tweet encouraging anyone struggling with mental health to reach out for help.
Asenbrener had previously opened up about a battle with depression back in February ... but the "Valorant" player said he had gotten into a better place after spending time at a mental health hospital.
"After that I had a new fresh start and was able to thankfully get my s*** together," Asenbrener wrote.
"It was hardest time for me as a person and as a professional esport athlete. But after that time I knew why I'm playing games and what my team means to me."
He added at the time, "Take care of yourself and if you're experiencing something like I did, dont be scared to reach out to your close friends, to your family or your team."
According to Escorenews, the Czech player last competed on May 25 ... and earned $10,000 in his gaming career.

12:27 PM PT -- We spoke with John Amos, who tells us the details laid out by his daughter Shannon Amos are a lie ... no one is abusing him and he hasn't been fighting for his life. He says he's got no idea as to why Shannon may have started the GoFundMe.
As for the hospitalization, John's rep, Belinda Foster, tells us he's been in the hospital because his lower body was filling with fluid, all the way to his abdomen, and causing issues with his heart. Foster says doctors have been able to drain all of it, and John's recently started to feel 100%.
"Good Times" star and "America's Dad" John Amos was left fighting for his life in the hospital after falling victim to elder abuse and possible financial crimes ... according to his daughter.
Shannon Amos just made the shocking announcement, saying she got a distressing call from her dad last month ... who informed her he was in the hospital in Memphis. Shannon says she was able to get John on a quick FaceTime -- as she was out of the country -- before his pain became unbearable.
Shannon says in the last few weeks, the Amos family has learned the 83-year-old, "Had fallen victim to elder abuse and financial exploitation."
She doesn't give details as to who is involved -- only saying a "caregiver" -- or what exactly happened to Amos, but does note, "His home had been violated, stripped of anything valuable." She also says the family is working with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations and cops to get justice.
In an attempt to help her dad's recovery and help bring those allegedly responsible to justice, Shannon's set up a GoFundMe with a $500k goal. Shannon says the money will be used for John's care, legal fees, and aftercare.
The late "Power Rangers" star Jason David Frank's karate school has allegedly fallen way behind in rent since his death ... and now the landlord is taking the school to court.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Jason's Rising Sun Karate in Valencia, CA is getting sued by Valencia Marketplace, the shopping mall where the dojo's located. The suit claims Jason and co. are tenants under a couple of leases -- the original of which dates back to around 1998.
The problem, according to the docs, is that Rising Sun stopped paying rent around November and December 2022 -- you'll recall, Jason died on November 19, 2022. Valencia Marketplace says it served the company a written notice of its running balance that was owed back in March, but says the balance was never paid.
The shopping mall's now seeking a whopping $47,347 in unpaid rent from Rising Sun Karate.
TMZ broke the story, Jason died by suicide last year ... and we learned Jason's karate spot was leaving its doors open after his death, with co-founder Sam Sprague keeping his legacy alive by continuing to pass along his teachings.
DC Young Fly is breaking his silence on the death of his longtime partner, Jacky Oh!, calling her the greatest mother he's ever known ... and promising to tell their kids how amazing she was for the rest of their lives.
DC took to Instagram, posting a series of photos of their family, and writing, "I wasn’t in no rush to post this because I wanted it to be a dream so bad but every hour I’m reminded of realty so I wanna make sure I applaud you in the proper manner."

He says, "You are the GREATEST MOTHER I KNOW your soul was beautiful Yu always wanted the best for others and I admired how our family love each other!!! Never had to worry about our kids loving each other cause you were on top of Dat!!!"
Remember, a lot of the Kardashian siblings have kiddos who are around the same age -- 4 years old or so -- so it makes sense to see the parents here. The interesting thing, of course, is that Khloe and Tristan as well as Kylie and Travis are no longer romantically involved, yet they all played nice in each other's company.
Eyewitnesses tell us that Khloe and Tristan -- who are clearly on good terms -- were interacting the most out of anyone ... just sharing friendly conversation. We're told Kylie and Travis didn't appear to interact, but his family also joined the celebration.
Lastly, Blac Chyna (now going by Angela White) was also in the mix ... although our eyewitnesses say she didn't touch base with any of the Kardashians. No word if her baby daddy, Rob Kardashian, was there or not ... but Mama Bear was on the scene.
While it doesn't seem like Kylie and Travis have much to say, Khloe and Tristan continue to prove they're in a great place as co-parents. Remember, amid their frequent hang-outs and speculation that they're back together ... we've been assured that's simply not the case.
Both Leo and Gigi hightailed it back to London's Chiltern Firehouse Hotel Wednesday ... doing their usual routine of pulling up in separate cars. However, their timing wasn't so sneaky ... with Gigi arriving around 1:16 AM and Leo getting there only a couple minutes after.
Of course, this event comes only 24 hours after the two hit up a 20-person dinner party at China Tang organized by Leo's pal British Vogue Editor Edward Enninful. Leo's parents also attended that outing.
11:43 AM PT -- A source close to Raquel Leviss tells TMZ ... "Upon the completion of filming the reunion, Raquel entered a voluntary inpatient behavioral health and trauma facility and remains there to date - 68 days and counting."
The source continues ... "She is a young woman that is and has been remorseful for her actions and has apologized repeatedly. Her treatment is helping her learn the basis of her decisions and to grow from her mistakes with the hope of making better choices and becoming a better person. Raquel looks forward to sharing her story with the unfiltered truth when she comes out."
Raquel Leviss kept the drama flowing after the "Vanderpump Rules" reunion finale, admitting Tom Sandoval covered up the worst details of their hookups ... the ones that happened right under Ariana Madix's nose.
Raquel did a one-on-one chat with a 'VPR' producer for a debrief 6 days after the reunion taping, and exposed the fact she and Sandoval had actually slept together multiple times during Scheana Shay's wedding last August in Mexico. Tom had claimed it was just a "one-night stand," so ... yeah, there's that.
She even talked about suggesting to Tom they become a throuple -- Tom, Ariana, and Raquel -- which he quickly said Ariana would NOT be into doing. That's super interesting because Bravo shot a scene during the wedding trip -- which it didn't air until after the affair came out -- showing all 3 of them half-naked in a hot tub and Ariana saying, "We look like a throuple."
She had no idea Raquel and Tom were already banging.
Perhaps the most shocking revelation came when Raquel tearfully admitted bedding Tom at the home he still shares with Ariana. During the reunion, Tom was adamant they never hooked up while Ariana was out of town, attending her grandmother's funeral -- but Raquel says that's exactly what happened.
Mark Hoppus from Blink-182 is waging legal war with his neighbor in Beverly Hills ... and it's all because of a pine tree Mark says is growing too tall.
According to a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Mark and his wife Skye are suing their neighbor over a tree they claim is blocking their view.
In the docs, Mark says the neighbor is violating rules adopted by the planning commission they hashed out years ago, which called for her to remove a bunch of trees and maintain a pine tree at a maximum height of 15 feet.
Mark says his neighbor is flouting the rules, claiming the tree is over 15 feet now, and new trees are growing in place of those that had previously been removed ... obstructing his view in the process.
Shakira is apparently taking a small breather from Lewis Hamilton ... the singer hit up Wednesday's NBA Finals Game 3 without the racecar driver -- though her new rumored love interest didn't miss much, 'cause the tilt ended up being a laugher.
Just a few days after she was spotted getting cozy with the 38-year-old following his second-place finish at the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona, the "Hips Don't Lie" crooner pulled up solo to the Kaseya Center in Miami ... in order to cheer on the Heat vs. the Nuggets.
She had some killer seats -- sitting right on the sideline -- but Jimmy Butler and the home team didn't give her much to clap about ... they got smacked, 109-94.
It's unclear if her public appearance without Hamilton means much -- Lewis could simply be just preparing for the June 18 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal -- or perhaps they're putting whatever was happening on ice. Then again, the Heat play in Miami for Game 4 on Friday -- so maybe he's just waiting for a weekend hang?
Lamar Odom is helping Bam Margera through every step of his detox and rehab process, even sitting bedside with the former "Jackass" star as he works to get better.
Check out the photos, you see Bam in a hospital bed and hooked up to several monitors as he poses with the former NBA star. Our sources say Lamar was there as Bam was discharged from a psych hold Wednesday and immediately got him into detox at one of his own facilities.
It's obviously a good sign for Bam, who has been struggling for years with his sobriety, and wants to get better for his young son, Phoenix.
After detox, our sources say the plan is for Lamar to get Bam into a rehab facility for continued care ... lucky for Bam, Lamar owns multiple rehab locations, so you gotta imagine he'll get some of the best care.
While the duo may seem unlikely, Lamar's had his eye on Bam's story for quite a while ... telling us several weeks ago he wanted to help Bam's situation. Their paths were finally able to cross when Bam was picked up by LAPD over the weekend and placed on a psych hold.
As we reported, Lamar went to visit Bam in the hospital during his mandatory hold ... and from there the two worked out the plan we now see in action.
Adam DeVine has a horrifying story to tell about a poker party turning tragic in the Hollywood Hills -- a man was shot and killed, with Adam and his wife just across the street.
The "Pitch Perfect" star shared his experience during a live taping of the "This Is Important" podcast Wednesday night with his "Workaholics" costars Blake Anderson, Anders Holm, and Kyle Newacheck -- and it might not have been the best setting for such a serious tale.
Adam says he was chillin' on a balcony at home with his wife Chloe Bridges when the murder happened just across the way from him, leaving him in shock.
Adam says he called it, too -- believing some "dastardly s***" was happening at the boujee poker party. Of course, the podcast hosts and crowd still found the ordeal a little funny, with Blake punching up the story with sound effects. Actually, it seems like the crowd thought Adam was doing a bit.
He didn't get into specifics about the crime, but KTLA reported 39-year-old Emil Lahaziel was gunned down just after 2 AM Wednesday morning at a Hollywood Hills poker party.
It's unclear if Adam actually witnessed the shooting ... if he did, he left that part out.
Investigators think Lahaziel was involved in an argument on the property's driveway when the suspect pulled out the gun and shot him ... but the suspect hasn't been found yet.
Pat Robertson, the legendary Christian philanthropist and radio broadcaster who once ran for President, has died.
According to a press release issued by the Christian Broadcasting Network ... Robertson passed away Thursday in his Virginia home as family gathered around him. His cause of death was not disclosed.
Robertson enjoyed a long illustrious career in TV, politics and religion. Decades ago, he first launched a small TV station and soon transformed himself into one of the most influential Christian commentators in the nation. He became known as both a religious leader and culture warrior.
Over the years, he founded the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), which was home to the immensely popular "The 700 Club." He also created the Christian Coalition, which was credited with helping bring American evangelicals to the modern Republican Party.
Robertson became a household name when he ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 1988, but lost to George H.W. Bush, who went on to become the commander in chief. Still, Robertson stayed close to politics, getting conservative Christians behind H.W.'s son, George W. Bush, and Donald Trumpfor their Presidential bids.
Paris Hilton has solidified herself as a world-famous DJ, and is now working to do the same as a vocalist ... kicking off Pride Month in her own very special way, with a live concert, featuring some of her super-famous pals.
The TV personality/entrepreneur hit the stage Wednesday at the Fonda Theatre in L.A. -- pumping out some fan favorites like 2006's "Stars Are Blind" during the sold-out show. Paris had a lot in store throughout the night, including special guests like Saweetieand Kim Petras.
Paris' mom, Kathy Hilton, and some of her family members were also in attendance there to witness it all!
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
After the concert she raved about the night on IG, saying ... "This show is truly such a dream come true. 💕 I am so grateful for all of the support and love I felt on stage, the energy from the crowd was absolutely electrifying ✨ It's always been a dream of mine to perform live and share this experience with my incredible fans, and I can't wait for my next show!!! 🌈 ✨ 🎤..."
The "Vanderpump Rules" reunion reached its climactic conclusion Wednesday night as Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss professed their love for one another -- doing so right in front of Tom’s jilted ex Ariana Madix.
The dramatic sequence went down halfway through the third and final part of the 'VPR' Season 10 reunion when Bravo host Andy Cohen asked Raquel why she didn't slam the brakes on her affair with Tom.
Raquel said it was "almost impossible" to turn away from their relationship, prompting Andy to explore if she was in love with Tom at the time. After a tense moment, Raquel nodded and said, "Yeah."
Predictably, Ariana lost it and did some name-calling, but Raquel stayed composed and went on to admit she was still in love with Tom.
Andy then turned to Tom and questioned whether he had the same feelings for Raquel. Tom took a deep breath and thought about it for what felt like an eternity ... then he finally blurted out, “I’m sorry. Yes.”
Of course, Ariana reacted with disgust, labeling Tom and Raquel "grody" and their expressions of love as "the most pathetic thing I've ever heard." Earlier, Ariana promised to never see or speak to Raquel again after the reunion and compared her to an evil "Dementor" creature from the 'Harry Potter' films.
Jay-Z is at least $7 million richer than he was one day ago, and the money means he can finally put a more than 7-year-long legal battle behind him.
TMZ Hip Hop has learned Paralux Fragrances sent $7,259,061.31 to Jay's team on Wednesday -- that's what the company owed him after losing the lawsuit it filed, way back in January 2016, claiming the mogul hadn't lived up to promotional obligations for the cologne Gold Jay-Z.
As we reported, a jury ruled in favor of Jay more than a year ago, but Parlux had filed an appeal ... which it lost last week. As a result, the company was on the hook for the court-ordered amount of $6.8 million plus interest.
Here's a little perspective on how long the Parlux battle dragged on -- when the lawsuit was filed, Jay-Z was worth about $610 million, according to Forbes. Seven years later, he's more than quadrupled that!!!
While the $7 mil would be like hitting the lotto for most of us, it's a drop in the bucket for someone as successful as Jay.
TMZ broke the story ... he and Beyonce just paid $200 million -- CASH, no less -- for their new Malibu mansion. It's the most expensive real estate deal in California history, and the 2nd biggest in U.S. history, and on top of that, they also have a $100 million Bel-Air home.
So, when it's all said and done, $7.2 mil should cover their steep L.A. County property taxes ... for about a year.
