RBG Treated for Pancreatic Cancer

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has overcome yet another health scare, recently getting treated for pancreatic cancer.

The Supreme Court announced Friday RBG was recently treated for pancreatic cancer in NYC and said, "the tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body."

A rep for the high court said, "Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy. The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas."

The Supreme Court said the abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 confirmed a localized malignant tumor. They said as part of the treatment, a bile duct stent was placed.

Proving her toughness yet again ... the Supreme Court said, "The Justice tolerated treatment well. She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule" and added, no further treatment is needed at this time.

This is the fourth time the 86-year-old's dealt with cancer. She had also been treated for early stages of pancreatic cancer in 2009 but most recently she underwent a pulmonary lobectomy to remove 2 nodules from her lung. Doctors removed all of the cancer.

RBG also underwent surgery to successfully treat colon cancer in 1999. She underwent a heart procedure in 2014 to have a stent placed in her right coronary artery.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Officials Credit Pilots For Saving Driver & Family

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Officials are crediting the heroic actions of the pilots on Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s private jet for evacuating the NASCAR legend and his family from his burning plane during the crash, this according to new documents.

After the plane crash landed in Elizabethton, Tennessee on August 15 ... it caught fire and began to burn.

But, while the flames raged, "the flight crew [which only consisted of the pilot and co-pilot] secured the engines and assisted the passengers with the evacuation," according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

The NTSB has been investigating the crash and while they have not specifically released the cause ... they do note that the landing gear on the plane collapsed at some point during the crash landing.

Officials say everything about the flight appeared to be routine until the landing ... when, for some reason, the plane bounced twice on the runway ... before crashing with only 1,000 feet of runway left.

The plane ultimately settled on the edge of a nearby highway where the flight crew evacuated Dale Jr., his wife, their 1-year-old daughter and the family dog.

Dale says he suffered back injuries in the wreck but expects to be fine. The rest of the family and the two pilots are all reportedly doing fine.

As part of the investigation, officials recovered the plane's black box -- but it was damaged in the fire ... so it's been sent to a lab for examination.

Tom Green Pissed at Kimmel for Stealing Bit ... Gee Jimmy, Where'd You Get That Idea?!?

Breaking News
TMZ.com

Tom Green's is no laughing mood over a Jimmy Kimmel prank, because he did the same thing years ago ... and got ripped off without even a shout-out.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

The comedian just shared a salty video on his Instagram, ripping Kimmel for stealing his decades-old bit where he paints his parents' house while they're out of town ... except Jimmy's target was his aunt.

As Tom sarcastically asks, "Wonder where ya got that idea?!"

Green accuses Jimmy of blatantly ripping him off and refers to him as a joke thief, and seems pretty exasperated over TV shows swiping his old ideas and using them as their own.

He doesn't list other examples, but it sure looks like he has a pretty strong case here. Of course, Jimmy actually pulled this prank on his aunt in 2010 ... he just shared again for #throwbackthursday.

Still, Tom points out when stand-up comics get caught stealing jokes, they get crucified ... and he's miffed Kimmel seems to be getting a pass.

The good news -- for Jimmy -- is Tom says he's a fan and offers a way for Kimmel to make it up to him ... just give him some freakin' credit.

Or, if he really wants to make it right ... perhaps Jimmy can let Tom put his bum on his lips.

We reached out to reps for Kimmel and they had no comment.

Rapper Ambjaay Claims Racial Profiling in Free Concert Bust

Exclusive
UNO MOMENTO POR FAVOR

The young rapper whose earned praise from Kylie Jenner, Drake and Meek Mill had a very public run-in with the law that ended with his arrest ... and his reps are calling the move racist.

Rapper Ambjaay -- famous for his hugely successful track, "Uno" -- was busted Thursday about an hour east of L.A. in Rancho Cucamonga after directing hundreds of high school kids to show up to a nearby park for a free pop-up concert.

Neo Ruiz

So, why the move? The 19-year-old rapper wanted to reward the students from Rancho Cucamonga HS after a video showed them turning up to "Uno" last week ... hence the free concert. Problem was ... Ambjaay didn't have a permit, this according to law enforcement sources.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

We're told police responded to the park and told Ambjaay he had to shut it down, but we're told he instead directed fans to another park. Cops tell us they got wind of this ... and that's when they pulled him over, searched his car and arrested him for disturbing the peace. He was later released.

A rep for Ambjaay tells TMZ ... all the rapper was trying to do was give back to a community that had showed him mad love. The rep straight-up calls this a classic case of racial profiling. The rep adds the disturbance occurred only AFTER police wouldn't let the rapper perform.

Luke Walton NBA Will Not Discipline After Sexual Assault Investigation

Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton will NOT be punished by the NBA ... after the league investigated claims he sexually assaulted a female reporter.

Walton was accused of forcing himself on former L.A. Lakers reporter Kelli Tennant in a Santa Monica hotel room back in 2014.

5 years later, Tennant filed a lawsuit against the head coach ... which sparked an NBA and Kings investigation.

The Kings and the NBA released a joint statement on Friday, announcing there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations.

THE STORY
TMZSports.com

"On April 22, 2019, Ms. Tennant filed a civil lawsuit against Coach Walton and, on April 23, held a press conference in which she described claims of sexual assault, verbal and physical harassment, and unwanted physical contact over a three-year period. Two days later, the Kings and the NBA commenced an investigation."

"The investigatory team was led by Sue Ann Van Dermyden, from the Sacramento law firm Van Dermyden Maddux, and Elizabeth Maringer, Senior Vice President and Assistant General Counsel of the NBA."

The statement continues ..."During the investigation, more than twenty individuals were interviewed, including Coach Walton, and numerous documents and other relevant materials were reviewed."

"The investigators made repeated attempts to interview Ms. Tennant, but, through her counsel, she declined the opportunity to participate. The investigation is considered closed unless new evidence becomes available."

The civil suit is still active ... and is set to go to trial late next year.

Luke Walton -- who was never arrested or charged with a crime -- has adamantly denied any wrongdoing.

Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino 'Jersey Shore' Gals Take D.C. ... Try to Spring Him Early

Exclusive
STARTING THE MOVEMENT

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino only has a few weeks left to serve on his prison sentence, but the 'Jersey Shore' ladies can't wait that long ... so they're exercising their First Amendment rights to make it happen NOW ... but they picketed at the wrong building!

JWoww, Snooki, Angelina and Deena made donning "Free Sitch" t-shirts and carrying picket signs to get The Situation out of lockup early, but there was one problem -- they don't quite have the clout of Kim Kardashian ... who actually got inside The White House.

The girls' effort to jawbone with Donald Trump proved futile, but it looks like they got their landmarks wrong, because they ended up picketing outside The Treasury Building. Last we knew, the Treasury Secretary can't pardon felons.

Hey, it's the thought that counts.

QUICK TRIP

In true 'Jersey Shore' fashion, at least one member of the cast had to embarrassingly eat sh*t on camera ... unsurprisingly, it was Deena.

She once said, "Face down, ass up ... that's the way I like to have a good time" ... looks like she takes that motto on the road.

As we reported, the Sitch officially started his 8-month prison sentence for tax evasion back in January. He's due to be released September 12 ... no thanks to his castmates ... or the President.

Miley Cyrus She'll Keep the Pets ... In Divorce with Liam

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty Composite

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth didn't have any kids together, but they DID share tons of pets ... and now that they're divorcing, Miley's keeping all of the animals under her roof.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Miley will keep her menagerie of pets -- 7 dogs, 2 horses, 2 mini horses, 3 cats and a pig.

Fact is ... if Liam wanted to put up a fight, he could in California because there's a new law that allows judges to determine which party is best suited to keep the pets. The judge puts a lot of weight on who cares for the animals. Judges even have the power to award joint custody of household pets.

In this case, however, it's no contest. Miley's the one who gave almost all of the animals a home in the first place -- mainly through adoption -- and she's certainly passionate about them. However, it was Liam -- while Miley was out of town -- who saved the animals during last year's wildfires in Malibu, which destroyed their home. Miley praised Liam's heroics on Howard Stern.

We're told Liam won't contest animal custody ... Miley gets the critters.

As we first reported ... Liam filed for divorce from Miley this week, but it sounds like the divorce will be easy breezy. We've learned they have a prenup that keeps all their stuff separate, so there won't be any bickering over property.

Hopefully, Kaitlynn Carter is an animal lover too.

This will be Lindsey's 2nd marriage -- she was previously married to U.S. Ski teammate Thomas Vonn, but they divorced in 2013.

After the split, Lindsey dated Tiger Woods and then moved on to NFL wide receivers coach Kenan Smith. When that ended, she moved on to Subban and it's been a fairy tale ever since!

Robert Downey Jr. Rolling Stones Rock So Hard ... They're On Mars Now!!!

ROCKIN' MARS
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Who says a Rolling Stones concert is only rock 'n' roll? Not Robert Downey Jr., who kicked off Thursday night's Rose Bowl concert by announcing the band has its own stone ... on Mars.

Iron Man himself hit the stage before Mick, Keith and the fellas rocked the crowd of 60,000 ... and shared an origin story about the legendary band and the exploration of the red planet.

Long story short, Mars and the band are now cosmically linked forever because NASA has named an iconic rock on the planet's surface ... "Rolling Stones Rock."

As Downey Jr. enthusiastically explained ... NASA's successful landing of the InSight spacecraft last year on Mars sent a golf ball-sized rock rolling a few feet across the surface -- and the rocket scientists came up with a (sorta?) clever name for it.

It might just be one small stone for man, but it's one giant leap for Stones' kind.

STILL ROLLIN'
TMZ.com

BTW ... 76-year-old Jagger looked like he was ready for space exploration himself, showing no signs of slowing after the heart valve procedure earlier this year, which delayed the tour.

Backgrid

After the show, photogs got this shot of the frontman with a device hanging next to his neck -- and while there's a rumor it's there to monitor his heart ... that just ain't so.

A rep for the band tells us it's simply Mick's in-ear monitors which he's been wearing during concerts for the last, oh ... 60 or so years.

Vic Mensa Slams Trump for Valuing Gun Sales Over People's Lives

Exclusive
CHANGE'S LONG OVERDUE
TMZ.com

Vic Mensa straight-up says that, in Donald Trump's world of extreme capitalism, everything's for sale ... including people's lives.

The rapper made a passionate plea for gun control, telling TMZ ... this country's long overdue, but says it'll never happen under a president that's in bed with the NRA -- a billion-dollar industry. Strong words from a gun owner himself who also has a concealed carry permit.

Vic blasts Trump for feigning interest in doing something about gun control following consecutive mass shootings in Texas and Ohio earlier this month ... only to pull a bait and switch, saying mental health reform -- not background checks -- is the answer.

Vic -- a strong proponent of banning assault weapons -- doesn't mince words ... he says the mass shooting trend is "America's chickens coming home to roost," after YEARS of this country failing to address the root of the problem.

Mike Tyson says Conor McGregor is a "wonderful person" who's earned a shot at redemption with the public ... telling TMZ Sports, "He's a really kind man."

The boxing legend was leaving Cipriani in NYC on Thursday -- around the same time Conor was finally addressing his pub attack on ESPN ... when Iron Mike explained why Conor should be able to bounce back from his latest scandal.

"He's a wonderful person. He's a really kind man and he's gonna get good karma for that," Tyson said ... "I believe that."

Tyson also told us he thinks Conor has "earned" a 2nd chance for his actions.

Iron Mike and the Notorious aren't just friends -- they smoked weed together in late 2018 ... with Conor praising Mike on social media.

"I will always have the height of respect for you," Conor said after they kicked it together in Ireland ... "I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!"

Of course, Conor essentially begged for forgiveness from his fans during an interview with ESPN's Ariel Helwani ... claiming he's trying to change for the better after several violent incidents.

He even owned up to acting like a jerk in an Ireland bar back in April -- admitting he was in the wrong for punching a 50-year-old man in the face.

As for Tyson, we also asked about the DOUBTERS who say Mike's claim about smoking $40k in weed per month is wrong. Tyson had a comment for them too ...

"They don't know how to dream," Tyson said before noting ... "Yeah, [the number] is a reality!"

Well, Rah Ali heard about Star's bragging ... and now she's firing back, and going low.

Sources close to Rah tell TMZ ... she feels it's just a poor attempt by Star to get her 15 minutes of fame and, instead of worrying about last year's fight, Star should be asking why she's still dancing for dollars while her friend, Cardi, lives lavishly.

SHOTS FIRED!!!
