Shocking news out of the world of Teen Mom today, as sources have confirmed that police were called to the home of Jenelle Evans and David Eason following a fight that apparently turned violent.
The latest development in the Easons' increasingly dysfunctional relationship was first reported by The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
The site obtained police records indicating that two cop cars and an ambulance were dispatched to the Easons' home in response to a domestic disturbance.
Here's everything we know so far …
1. Trouble on the Land
2. A One-Sided Fight
3. Who Made the Call?
4. Undisclosed Injuries
5. An Attempt to Downplay the Situation?
6. A Need for Treatment
Earlier this week, Jenelle Evans was rushed to a North Carolina hospital to undergo emergency surgery.
Evans is typically quite vocal about every aspect of her personal life, but aside from one brief mention in a now-deleted Instagram story, Jenelle has kept mum about this frightening incident.
Obviously, Evans has made quite a few enemies on social media over the years, but even her harshest critics are eager for reassurance that the crisis has been averted, and she's recovering according to schedule.
At the moment, rumors abound as to why Jenelle has been so uncharacteristically quiet about her latest health crisis.
Here's what we know about this scary — and very mysterious — situation thus far:
1. A Difficult Week
2. Ups and Downs
4. Worse Than Expected?
5. An Unusual Condition
6. The Ugly Truth?
Heather Locklear was taken to the hospital for the second time in just over two weeks on Monday afternoon.
As previously detailed, the veteran actress was placed under doctor’s supervision earlier this month after she allegedly assaulted her parents and threatened to shoot herself.
She was then released after receiving a psychiatric evalution.
Yesterday, however, the extremely troubled ex-Melrose Place and Spin City star was hospitalized for a different reason.
And a scarier one, really, too.
TMZ confirms that a 911 call was made from Locklear’s home around 3 p.m. after the actress overdoses on prescription medication.
Paramedics quickly arrived on the scene in Thousand Oaks, California and transported the star to Las Robles Hospital & Medical Center.
She is now in stable condition, with an insider telling Us Weekly:
“She didn’t want to leave her home [Monday] afternoon to get further treatment that she had agreed to get earlier in the day.
“Authorities were called when Heather said she had taken prescription medication and there [were] concerns she had taken more than she had been prescribed.
“The family is asking for privacy at this time.”
There’s no way to know right now whether Locklear accidentally took more than she had been prescribed; or if she did so on purpose.
Just 24 hours prior to this frightening incident, Locklear was released from jail after she allegedly attacked both a police officer and an EMT.
They had been called to the 56-year old’s home because the actress was acting drunk and beligerent.
“This is a very serious situation,” a second source told the aforementioned tabloid, adding of the star:
“Heather refuses to get treatment. … Heather’s parents are asking [her boyfriend] Chris [Heisser] to stay away from Heather for a bit to give her some space to get the help she needs.”
This really is a very scary time for the former soap opera and primetime television mainstay.
Locklear has had numerous run-ins with the law over recent years and checked into rehab on at least one occasion.
We had previously heard that Locklear planned to voluntarily check herself in for another round of treatment following last week’s uproar at her home, but it now appears as if that was never on the docket… or Heather changed her mind.
All that’s really certain at the moment is that those close to the actress and/or those who were close to her in the past are very afraid of what may happen next.
“I love Heather… [and have] loving thoughts and prayers for her and her family and her daughter, Ava,” ex-boyfriend Jack Wagner recently told Entertainment Tonight.
Ava is Locklear’s 20-year old daughter with Bon Jovi drummer Richie Sambora.
She “has had to watch her mother’s ups and downs and this is far worse than it has ever been,” another source tells ET, concluding:
“No one should have to deal with their mother behaving the way Heather does. Especially the way Heather has treated the police.
“Something has to change, there has to be some sort of reality check here.”
We’ll be keeping both Heather and Ava in our thoughts for awhile.
NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell is in the hospital in Washington state dealing with some apparent heart issues … TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us … an ambulance was called to Russell’s home in the Seattle area Friday night, and…
According to a recent report, Avicii talked to his loved ones just hours before he took his own life two weeks ago.
Based on this conversation and the DJ’s behavior/mindset/attitude during it, Avicii’s feared the worst.
They feared that Avicii would take his own life.
“The family was aware that Tim felt bad. It went up and down, but when he was in Oman, it became worse,” a source close to the family told the Swedish website Stoppa Pressarna.
This insider added:
“When they talked to Tim on the phone they became worried. The family realized that it was really bad and that one had to act.”
This article goes on to say that one family member immediately hopped on on a flight to the Middle East, but it was too late:
When the family member (believed to be Avicii’s brother) arrived in the city of Muscat, Avicii had already committed suicide.
As previously detailed, the beloved musician killed himself at the young age of 28, following years of admitted substance abuse and anxiety.
In 2016, Avicii took a hiatus from touring due to health issues (he was previously diagnosed with pancreatitis), both mental and physical.
He confessed to partying too much and feeling ongoing pressure to be a global success.
Earlier this week, TMZ quoted an insider who said the Swedish DJ used a shard of glass to fatally wound himself.
It’s unclear whether he cut himself on the wrist or on the neck, but it’s become evident that Avicii struggled tremendously with his place in the world.
“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions,” read a recent family statement, shedding some light on what transpired with their relative.
This statement continued:
“When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.
“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.”
Based on those final two sentences, it was assumed by most fans that Avicii did, indeed, kill himself.
And now that has been confirmed.
But this was the first we heard of the phone call between the late DJ and his family members.
It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it?
The hitmaker bled to death while on vacation on the aforementioned Arabian peninsula on Friday, April 20.
“It’s terrible for the family, an unusual sense of powerlessness and frustration that Tim left them in such young years,” the source told the website cited above, concluding:
“It’s a big tragedy. He was really a great guy.”
This really does seem to be the case.
In the wake of this suicide, those in entertainment took to social media to express their thoughts and their condolences.
You can read those tributes HERE.
We continue to send our own best wishes and to send our own prayers to everyone who knew Avicii best.
We simply loved his music. We can’t imagine what this must be like for those close to the musician.
May he rest in peace.

Frightening news out of Hollywood today, as multiple sources have confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently hospitalized following an emergency open heart surgery.
According to TMZ, the 70-year-old screen icon and former governor of California is currently recovering at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles following a catheter valve replacement that went awry.
Sources say doctors were prepared for the possibility that the valve replacement might fail, and they quickly made the decision to perform emergency open heart surgery.
While the second procedure reportedly went as planned, family, friends, and fans are said to be deeply concerned, and understandably so.
Adding to their fear is the fact that this is not the first time Schwarzenegger has undergone heart surgery.
The actor had an aortic valve replaced in 1997.
Doctors reportedly informed Schwarzenegger that the procedure wasn’t urgently needed at the time, but he decided to get it out of the way while he was still young.
It’s not currently clear if Schwarzenegger’s recent problems are related to the condition he was treated for back then.
At the time of his first procedure, Schwarzenegger stated that the condition was congenital and not the result of past steroid use.
While this week’s open heart surgery was an emergency procedure, sources say it went as well as could be expected, given the circumstances.
There’s no word yet on when Schwarzenegger will be fully recovered, but those who know him best expect the famously ambitious fitness fanatic to be back on his feet in no time.
Arnold, of course, has been a mainstay in American pop culture and politics for the past four decades.
The Austrian-born former bodybuilder is on the short list of celebrities who are so iconic they can be referred to by a single name.
At 70, he remains as relevant as ever, and Schwarzenegger’s feud with Donald Trump recently made headlines and reminded the world of just what a sharp wit Arnold truly is.
Schwarzenegger has yet to issue a statement regarding his latest health scare, but you can bet that one is coming soon.
Arnold famously loves his public as much as the public loves him.
We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
