Last week it was reported that Kris Jenner had been involved in a car accident near her home after a car cut in front of her at a Calabasas intersection.

And while Kris’ new Rolls-Royce was badly damaged in the collision, it has now emerged that the person driving the other car has been left homeless as a result of the crash.

According to TMZ, out-of-work actor and model Jack Way had been living in his car for a number of months in the run up to the accident while he searched for a new job and because Jack’s Prius was written off in the collision, he now has nowhere to live.

While the accident is widely believed to have been Jack’s fault and he does not have collision insurance, he is said to have made contact with a lawyer in relation to the incident.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch Kris Jenner was reportedly involved in a car accident near her home yesterday afternoon.

According to TMZ, the famous momager has possibly been left with a broken wrist after a Prius van ran a red light before crashing into Kris’ white Rolls-Royce.

The front of Kris’ week-old car was destroyed as a result of the collision.  She was treated at the scene by paramedics who were cautious about removing her from the car for fear of making her injury worse.

A source told E! News that the reality star is “shook up” after the incident, but Kris says that despite her hurting hand she is alright.

When a worried fan tweeted Kylie Jenner about the accident, the teen responded by writing: “I was not involved in the accident.  Everything’s ok.”


Get well soon, Kris.

MTV reality star Jenelle Evans has reportedly been involved in a car crash while 10 weeks pregnant with her third child.

According to new police documents obtained by Us magazine, the Teen Mom 2 star told police she was 10 weeks pregnant after she was allegedly involved in a car crash with her latest boyfriend David Eason.

The report – which was filed on Wednesday July 6 – states that Jenelle and her partner were involved in a two-vehicle accident in North Carolina in which David rear-ended another car while at a traffic light.

It then states that the passenger in David’s car – who is believed to have been Jenelle – told police she was pregnant and complained of abdominal pain before being brought to a medical centre for treatment.

While the 24-year-old mother has not directly announced her third pregnancy, she did take to Instagram last night to address the incident and how it has been received by the public.

She wrote: “‘So sad.  ‘Disappointing.’  ‘She should have her tubes tied.’  ‘Did she have a miscarriage or is she still pregnant?!’  ‘3 baby daddies!’”

“These are only some hate comments I have been receiving since yesterday.  I don’t understand what is ‘disappointing’ or ‘sad’?!”

“Why not ask if I’m ok from the car accident?!  Why not be concerned about my health?!  I want privacy.  All of you disgust me.”

“Funny how someone else comes out with news they are pregnant and the world is overjoyed.”



I'll talk when I want to talk. #FuckOff

The words were defiantly coupled with the caption: “I’ll talk when I want to talk.”

Jenelle is currently the mother of six-year-old Jace – whose birth was documented for MTV’s hit show 16 and Pregnant – and two-year-old Kaiser.

The reality star’s battle with drug addiction has been well documented during her time on Teen Mom 2 and she has been arrested 13 times since the show first aired in 2011.



Last week, Calvin Harris was involved in a terrifying car crash which saw him land himself in hospital with "facial lacerations."

He was on his way to a gig, which he had to cancel, and since has been on bed rest at home.

His team had to make many announcements following the incident as he was unable to perform on a number of occasions:

“Adam is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the car accident last Friday,” the statement on Facebook read.

“Unfortunately, as a result he will not be able to perform in Las Vegas at Hakkasan tonight, 5/26 and Omnia tomorrow, 5/27. He has asked us to pass on his apologies to everyone who was due to attend the shows and hopes to be back to his normal schedule soon.”

But now, the DJ has spoke out, apologising to his fans for cancelling gigs, and thanking them for their support:

We hope he continues to make a speedy recovery.



Calvin Harris was rushed to hospital last night following a serious car crash in LA.

The DJ was taken by an ambulance after the crash to an LA hospital. It has also been claimed that he has been treated for a "laceration on his face."

His team was forced to cancel a show he was playing last night – yet, he was released from hospital hours later.

His reps confirmed the news on his Facebook page: "Adam's transport was involved in a collision this evening on the way to the airport. As a result he will be unable to perform at Omnia tonight. He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days – Calvin HQ.".

We hope he makes a swift recovery.



*If you don't want to know what happens in the next series of The Walking Dead, look away NOW because this could be a major spoiler.*

We love them on The Walking Dead, but as it turns out, we should love them in real life too because Glenn and Daryl are certainly real life heroes.

Norman Reedus and Steve Yeun we're cruising on motor cycles while filming for the next series of the show when they came across a car crash.

The two men hopped off their bikes to make sure the passengers were all OK.

TMZ reports that the injuries were fairly minor, however, Norman and Steve stayed around until the paramedics arrived to make sure everyone was grand. Awwww.

Now, the last series of TWD left us with a HUGE cliffhanger, so seeing the two actors could mean this is a spoiler alert – they're ALIVE (hopefully)!

Roz Purcell has opened up about a terrifying car crash she was involved in four years ago.

The model is currently an Ambassador for Skoda and recently she has been learning how to drive with the help of The Anton Savage Show and the Irish School of Motoring.

Speaking on Anton's show today, the Tipperary woman opened up about her fear of motorways: “I got in a really bad crash about 4 years ago, I was caught underneath a lorry.

“It was me and my eldest sister, we were driving home one weekend, and thankfully, it was actually really wet roads so the lorry, we were kind of in its blind spot and he came across and we got caught underneath the front of it and we skidded for about half a kilometre,” she said.

“We were really lucky cause the car was completely wrote off, and my sister and I were completely fine.”

“I just remember [my sister] going ‘are you okay, are you okay?’ and I remember being like ‘she’s so selfless right now’ cause she kept being like ‘are you okay?’ and I just kept thinking about myself, like ‘can’t believe I’m going to die, can’t believe I’m going to die,” she laughed.

“I was really like ‘this is it’, I can’t believe I’m going to die in a car crash."

That was a lucky escape Roz! We all know any kind of car crash can be super scary. 



First Kanye is called out for using an illegal torrent site, and now Kim Kardashian is being sued for a car crash.

The incident took place in March 2014, where Rafael Linare's car collided with Kim's Mercedes.

According to Gossip Cop, Rafael is claiming loss of income, car repairs and medical expenses in his court documents.

The docs originally claimed that he "sustained personal injuries which caused and will continue to cause pain, discomfort, and physical disability'' to him. 

Rafael is also claiming he was ''gainfully employed'' before the accident and has since been ''deprived of earnings''. 

A source close to the KUWTK star said that Kim said there was "minimal" damage and she thought the driver was OK afterwards.
