Jason Davis Death Case Looks Like Possible Heroin Overdose

Published

on

(TMZ) — Jason Davis ‘ death has authorities thinking he might’ve overdosed on heroin — a drug he’d been addicted to in the past and once kicked … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation tell us … Jason was found unresponsive in his bathroom around 10:30 AM. We’re told there were items nearby that were consistent with heroin or opioid use — including burnt tin foil and other paraphernalia.

An official cause has yet to be determined — we’re told an autopsy and toxicology analysis still needs to be conducted, but for now … authorities are treating his death as a possible OD. It makes the situation all the more tragic, as Jason had battled addiction … and in 2011, he was even arrested and charged for allegedly having heroin on him.

Those charges were eventually dropped after he completed a drug diversion program. About a year before that, he’d been featured on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” where he attempted to get clean. We got him on camera around the time his criminal case was being worked on, and he talked sobriety with us — saying at the time he’d been off drugs for almost a week.

Jason went on to cofound a charity called Cure Addiction Now, which he’s said to have been heavily involved with running.

Jason was most known in Hollywood as the voice of Mikey Blumberg on the long-running Disney Channel show, “Recess.” He’d acted in several other movies and shows as well.

The guy was just 35. RIP.

Published

By

(TMZ) — Bethenny Frankel is about to deliver half-a-million masks to doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are at high risk for contracting coronavirus, and the decks have just been cleared to deliver them quickly.

FEMA has told hospital workers they can get masks outside normal channels and get reimbursement because the supply is so critically lacking.

Bethenny tells TMZ, she’s getting thousands of messages a day from medical professionals — many in New York but also other areas of the country — begging for help.

Bethenny is working with manufacturers from all over the world to make masks, and the number she’s making has ballooned from 10,000 to 500,000 N-95 masks and counting.

She says the masks will be available in a few and they will go directly to the people who need it, because the red tape is being eliminated.

CA Medical Association Urges Plastic Surgeons for Emergency Help

Published

By

BEVERLY HILLS (TMZ) — Plastic surgeons can help a real cause … donating much-needed medical equipment to help doctors combat the coronavirus.

TMZ’s obtained this letter penned by the California Medical Association and sent to several prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeons — along with the rest of the state’s outpatient surgery/procedural facilities — to urgently redeploy resources to meet the coming increase demand for health care services.

What’s more … the CMA’s also desperately trying to take an inventory of ventilation equipment that may be able to be redeployed to hospitals and other facilities currently dealing with COVID-19 patients. Specifically, hospitals are in dire need of masks and gowns.

Plastic surgeons across the state are also being asked to take a survey “to help identify our current health care resources as we all scramble to deal with the COVID-19 emergency.”

If the CMA — a professional organization representing California physicians — says it’s asking for as much equipment as possible, this could put a damper on celebs who may wanna take this time to get a touch up via their plastic surgeon.

As we first reported … “Botched” star and doc Terry Dubrow says celebs are clamoring for plastic surgery while everyone is out of the public eye during the coronavirus pandemic.
