Prince Philip Contacts Accident Victims ... Gets New SUV Delivery

1/18/2019 10:05 AM PST

10:05 AM PT -- Prince Phillip went to a hospital on Friday to get an additional check-up, on a doctor's advice ... according to the Palace. They described it as a "precautionary" visit, and say it confirmed he suffered no injuries whatsoever. Miraculous.

Also, we're told the Prince reached out to the 2 women who were injured in the other vehicle, and "well wishes" were exchanged.

So British.Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, is STILL hell-bent on driving himself because he already has a brand new SUV ... less than 24 hours after flipping his last Land Rover.

The Duke of Edinburgh got his new ride delivered Friday to the Royal family's Sandringham Estate. Looks like he got the same model -- a Land Rover Freelander -- as the one he wrecked a day earlier, not far from Sandringham. 

Philip was behind the wheel Thursday when he collided with a Kia, flipping his Land Rover on its side.

The other car had a 9-month-old inside, but fortunately the baby was unharmed. The driver and her passenger suffered some cuts and a broken wrist.

The shocker, of course, is that 97-YEAR-OLD Philip somehow walked away uninjured. 

With the new delivery, it seems like Prince William's and Prince Harry's granddad isn't ready to give up his keys just yet. However, one of Philip's friends told People the Prince would stop driving, reluctantly, if he's advised to do so. 

Drive at your own risk, U.K. residents.

Devon Still's Daughter Leah's New Health Scare ... NOT CANCER!

1/18/2019 7:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Great news for Devon Still and his family -- the ex-NFL player's daughter, Leah, is IN THE CLEAR after doctors feared her recent medical scans showed signs of cancer. 

BOOM!!! 

You know her story ... Leah has bravely battled and "beat up cancer" ever since she was diagnosed with stage-4 neuroblastoma in June of 2014. She's been cancer-free for 4 years. 

But recently, doctors found something suspicious during one of her checkups -- and ran several tests to see if her cancer had returned. 

Devon had asked for prayers for Leah and the family -- and this week, they got the good news ... IT'S NOT CANCER!! 

Still documented the whole process on his YouTube channel. It's a raw experience, especially when he asks Leah if she's willing to fight cancer again, to which she responds:

"Yeah, I will. It's just that I don't want to lose my life."

Leah was a champ throughout the entire MIBG scan procedure -- which, according to the Cleveland Clinic, is "used for localization of known or suspected neuroectodermally derived tumors."

The Stills got the best news this week ... and Devon let Leah adorably share the awesome update.

"Guess what, guys? We got good news. Uh huh! The scans were clear. Mhm! Thank you, everybody, for praying for me."

Leah stays undefeated!!

Prince Philip Flips SUV in Crash!!! Gets Breathalyzer Test

1/17/2019 12:28 PM PST
Exclusive Details

6:17 AM PT -- Cops say there was a 9-month-old in the vehicle Prince Philip hit, but it was unharmed.

12:25 PM PT -- Police tell TMZ ... Prince Philip and the driver of the other vehicle were both given breathalyzer tests. Police say that's standard ops, but imagine being the officer asking Queen Elizabeth's husband to blow. 

Both of them passed with flying colors, btw. 

We're told the other driver suffered minor cuts, and her passenger has an arm injury. They were treated and released ... from Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, just dodged a huge bullet, because he survived a car crash in England ... and the 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was behind the wheel!

Buckingham Palace tells TMZ ... the Duke of Edinburgh was seen by a doctor as a precaution and the doc confirmed Philip was not injured. 

The two-vehicle collision happened Thursday afternoon near the Sandringham Estate, the private home of Queen Elizabeth. Police reportedly responded to the scene just after 3 PM and assisted two people with minor injuries, but miraculously Philip was unharmed.

As you can see, the crash left an SUV on its side ... and that's the one Philip was driving!

Philip, granddad to Prince William and Prince Harry, married Elizabeth in 1947, five years before she became Queen. Philip was dubbed Prince of the U.K. back in 1957. 

At 97, Philip is the oldest ever male British Royal. After surviving Thursday's car crash, seems Philip still has his good luck.

Jillian Michaels Let's Go Al, Andy & Vinny I'll Take You Down on Keto All Day!!!

1/15/2019 12:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jillian Michaels thinks Al Roker, Andy Cohen and Vinny Guadagnino slamming her from afar for criticizing the keto diet is a punk move if they're not willing to do it face-to-face.

The famed personal trainer and 'Biggest Loser' star was on "TMZ Live" to address the beef with a slew of celebs who attacked her for speaking out against the high-fat, low-carb weight loss craze.

Al blasted Jillian as a bully, and Cohen dubbed her "jackhole" of the day on his show, 'WWHL.'

Jillian says she isn't surprised by their fierce response -- 'cause there's big money behind the diet -- but then she tried to take the high road by politely inviting them to debate the science of keto in person.

She says they've gone radio silent. For now, Jillian's more than willing to throw a few personal jabs right back at the guys.

R. Kelly 'Surviving' Taking a Toll Riddled with Panic Attacks

1/11/2019 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly is feeling the heat in the wake of Lifetime's docuseries, because while law enforcement hasn't nailed him yet, he's been suffering panic attacks severe enough to require medical attention.

Sources connected to the embattled singer tell us the panic attacks started in the days leading up to "Surviving R. Kelly" airing last week. The firestorm that erupted after it aired is affecting him, too, because we're told they've continued ... with one attack being so serious, he sought treatment at a hospital. 

Our sources say, more often, he's had doctors make house visits. We're told the episodes are triggered by the overwhelming backlash Kelly's getting from celebs and the general public. He's shocked how the tables have turned ... with most people now believing his accusers.

We're told Kelly's aware the pendulum isn't swinging his way right now in the court of public opinion.

As for his birthday celebration Wednesday night ... we're told Kelly's looking for reasons to get out of his house. Quite frankly, we're told he still believes he's done nothing wrong and doesn't want to seem like he's hiding.

His dwindling number of supporters -- many of whom cheered him in the nightclub -- might think he's unfazed by the controversy. Truth is, the public outrage -- even from Kelly's own blood -- is getting to him.

Jessica Simpson Pregnancy is Swell

1/11/2019 8:57 AM PST

There's trouble afoot ... 

Jessica Simpson is beggin' for help after suffering an extreme case of edema during her pregnancy ... one that's caused her left leg to take on more water than the Titanic. 

The 38-year-old reached out to fans for tips on Thursday night -- saying, "Any remedies?! Help!!!!" 

Edema is pretty common but if you're in pain, you should DEFINITELY go see a doctor. 

Unclear when she's due, but Simpson announced her pregnancy back in September -- and with most people going public around 12 weeks, the assumption is she'll pop around April. This is her 3rd child -- she already has 2 with husband Eric Johnson, a former NFL player. 

Tons of people have already reached out to Jessica with tips. Our advice? Condoms. But, we're not doctors. 

At least J Simp's toenail polish is on fleek. Feel better! 

Bam Margera I'm Worried He's Gonna Die ... Says 'Jackass' Pal Novak

1/10/2019 10:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera insists he doesn't need professional help when it comes to booze, but one of his closest friends believes Bam's very life is at stake after he prematurely left rehab.

'Jackass' star Brandon Novak -- who used to appear on the stunt show with Bam -- tells us he is deeply concerned after Bam checked himself out of a Bay Area rehab facility this week. He explained his decision to leave on social media.

According to Bam's lengthy journal entry, he says he realized he didn't need to be in rehab a few days into his latest treatment, his third time. Bam says he bailed because he didn't need any detox or medication to kick his alcohol cravings.

Not only that, but Bam said he was sitting around doing nothing in rehab and feels unproductive. Plus, he says he was missing out on important business opportunities, and needed to leave to make money and keep his mind occupied.

The only time we FAIL is when we lose the ability to TRY AGAIN....... happy New Years 🎉🎉🎉🙏🙏🙏

A post shared by Brandon Novak (@brandon__novak) on

Well, Brandon doesn't think it's that simple. He tells us he and some of Bam's closest family members and friends staged an intervention late last year because they were genuinely concerned about Bam's drinking ... and wanted him to kick the habit once and for all.

Even worse, Brandon says he believes Bam could end up killing himself if he doesn't get clean. He tells us, "enable an addict, bury an addict." FWIW, Brandon is fully sober now after struggling with addiction through much of his adult life. 

Bam says he's with loved ones at the moment, but Brandon says he's unaware of his whereabouts.

Breaking News

McKenzie Milton -- the UCF QB who nearly lost his right leg after a gruesome on-field tackle -- is making incredible progress in his recovery ... already leg pressing on the injured knee!!!

The Golden Knights superstar took a shot to his leg in a game against South Florida on Nov. 23 ... and the carnage resulting from the hit was gnarly.

Milton dislocated his right knee completely ... and nearly lost the leg after blood flow to the injury site had ceased.

But, McKenzie underwent successful reconstructive knee surgery ... and is clearly now on the right track to being 100 percent again -- 'cause dude's already hitting the leg press!!

"Thanking God for the miracles I see everyday in my life. Went from almost losing my leg to leg pressing 40lbs in a little over a month," Milton wrote on social media.

"Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. God is definitely at work..it’s gonna be a long process but it’ll be one hell of a story."

Milton was one of the Knights' best players over his career ... starting 33 games the last three seasons and throwing for 8,683 yards and 72 touchdowns.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Emerges For First Time ... Since Lung Cancer Surgery

1/9/2019 2:10 PM PST

1/11 -- RBG has no remaining signs of cancer and she will NOT require additional treatment, according to the Washington Post. RBG's expected to miss next week's arguments but will continue to work from home.Ruth Bader Ginsburg was spotted for the first time since undergoing surgery to remove cancerous growths from her lung.

A photo agency got video of RBG leaving her Washington D.C. apartment at 9 AM Wednesday, looking frail but hopefully on the mend.

The surgery was serious enough for Justice Ginsburg to miss the last 3 days at the Supreme Court ... something that has never happened in her 25-year storied career on the high court.

Her health has been on the minds of everyone since she fractured several ribs during a fall in November. Doctors who treated her discovered the cancerous growths.

The 85-year-old Justice was in a wheelchair and helped into a waiting car. It's unclear where she was headed but she did not go to the Supreme Court.

RBG is the oldest member of the Supreme Court and the cornerstone of the liberal wing. She's been working from home while recovering from her surgery

Justice Ginsburg has battled cancer twice before -- colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009.  Despite her surgeries and recoveries, she did not miss a single day at work.

She's the 4th oldest person ever to sit on the Supreme Court.
