CAUSE OF JOAN RIVERS DEATH DETERMINED: JOAN RIVERS died because her brain was damaged due to lack of oxygen. That's the official finding of the New York City Medical Examiner.

Rivers was undergoing a procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy in Manhattan August 28 to evaluate acid reflux and changes in her voice, and was sedated with the anesthetic propofol when she suffered hypoxia, or not enough oxygen in her blood. That in turn caused the damage to Rivers' brain. The official manner of death is "therapeutic complication," meaning her death resulted from a "predictable complication from medical therapy."

Rivers subsequently suffered cardiac arrest and was taken to New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, where she died Sept. 4 at age 81, having never regained consciousness.

Per the wishes of Rivers' family, no autopsy was performed, so the medical examiner's conclusions were based on non-invasive examinations of her remains, and a review of her charts and medical history.

What exactly caused the drop in Rivers' blood oxygen level is not known, and no obvious medical error was discovered -- hence, the "therapeutic complication" cause of death determination.

IS THIS THE REAL PROOF THAT TAYLOR SWIFT'S SONG "OUT OF THE WOODS" IS ABOUT HARRY STYLES?: Rolling Stone magazine has surmised that TAYLOR SWIFT'S new song "Out of the Woods" is about her relationship with HARRY STYLES of One Direction.

Taylor won't confirm or deny that, but MTV seems to have uncovered some circumstantial evidence that points to the song definitely being about Styles. According to MTV, in 2012, around the time that Harry and Taylor were dating, he would often wear a necklace with a silver paper airplane charm.

In November of 2012, Taylor was spotted wearing the exact same necklace. (PHOTO) (PHOTO)

So what? Well, in "Out of the Woods," Taylor sings, "Your necklace hanging from my neck/The night we couldn’t quite forget.” But wait, there's more. Taylor follows that verse with, "Baby, like we stood a chance/Two paper airplanes flying, flying…”

Well that seals the deal for me; the song is definitely about Harry

WATCH - IGGY AZALEA'S PARKING LOT CONFRONTATION WITH PAPARAZZO: IGGY AZALEA and a friend got into a confrontation with a photographer at a grocery store, during which they allegedly spit on him and put him in a chokehold.

There doesn't appear to be video of that, but in a Youtube clip of them arguing in the parking lot Iggy admits to spitting on him. In the vid, the photographer says he could have Ebola or AIDS after being spat on, to which Iggy replies, "I hope you have Ebola and die." Then she calls him a phrase I can't repeat, and tries to ram him with her shopping cart.



She later said in a statement the guy had been following her all day and wouldn't leave her alone, although the person who shot the cell phone video disagrees. In the comment section on Youtube, the person states that "paparazzi spotted Iggy at the supermarket and did NOT follow her around all day and was never once asked to leave by anyone."

BYNES UPDATE: AMANDA BYNES was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold in a Pasadena, California, hospital on Friday. A hearing will be held early this week on whether to extend her hold. To do that, psychiatrists must prove that she's a "danger to herself, to others or is gravely disabled."

According to CNN, Amanda’s series of Tweeted accusations claiming her father was sexually, verbally, and physically abusive when she was a kid, and especially her subsequent Tweet retracting them, may be what they need to extend the hold. After Bynes deleted the accusatory Tweets, she posted …


According to guidelines on the Los Angeles County Superior Court website, psychiatric patients being held involuntarily who can be shown to be “having auditory hallucinations” or “responding to internal stimuli,” can continue to be detained under California’s 5150 law.

STEPHEN COLLINS' ESTRANGED WIFE DENIES EXTORTION CLAIMS: Police are investigating claims that former "7th Heaven" actor STEPHEN COLLINS molested three girls years ago, after a tape of him discussing the incidents, recorded in 2012 by his estranged wife Faye Grant, was made public Tuesday.

Grant is denying having any part of the leak. She claims she turned over the recording to authorities two years ago. She's also refuting allegations made by Collins's attorney to TMZ that she "repeatedly threatened to give this audiotape to the media unless Stephen agreed to pay her millions of dollars more than that to which she was legally entitled."

In a statement released to ABC News, Grant said, "I am seeking no more than that to which I am legally entitled under the laws of the State of California. The recording of Mr. Collins' statements has not been part of family court proceedings or any negotiations related to that action at any time."

Grant's lawyer reiterated her claim, adding, "It is offensive and outrageous that Mr. Collins' lawyer is now attempting to deflect focus away from the disturbing content of the recording and away from Mr. Collins' admissions by attacking the victims, including Faye, who Mr. Collins' lawyer is attempting to portray as the 'villain' in this tragic situation."

Grant also maintains she turned over the recording to the LAPD and NYPD around the time of the couple's split over two years ago, "after Mr. Collins refused to address and get help with regard to his reprehensible conduct."

Collins and Grant are scheduled to begin their divorce trial next week. At stake is over 14 million dollars in assets.

Meanwhile ... There are some scandals even the show "Scandal" can't support. Collins was due for a return guest appearance as a TV reporter in an upcoming episode, but ABC announced yesterday that's not happening anymore.

Earlier this week Collins was dropped from the movie "Ted 2," and the TV Guide Network as well as the family-friendly cable channel Up have pulled "7th Heaven" reruns.

GAYLE KING DID NOT OUT HERSELF ON NATIONAL TELEVISION: Yesterday on "CBS This Morning" GAYLE KING said something that sounded a lot like "I'm gay."

She was joking about getting together with co-host CHARLIE ROSE at the time, and it sounded like she said, "I'm just kidding. I'm gay." Not that it really matters, but the reason people are making such a big deal about it is because she's Oprah's best friend, and there have been rumors for years that they are lovers.

Page Six reached out to King’s rep to gain clarification on her actual comments, and the rep provided the following transcript of the exchange:

GK: O! MAXIMIZERS AND SATISFICERS MAKE GOOD COUPLES.

::LOOKS AT CHARLIE::

GK: HELLO, MAXIMIZER.

::EVERYONE LAUGHS/CHARLIE KISSES GAYLE’S SHOULDER::

GK: I’M JUST KIDDING. I’M-I’M KIDDING. (LAUGHTER)

'7th HEAVEN' DAD ADMITS TO MOLESTING UNDERAGE GIRLS - IS UNDER INVESTIGATION: The New York Police Department is investigating allegations that actor STEPHEN COLLINS inappropriately touched at least one underage girl in multiple incidents that occurred over 40 years ago.



The alleged incidents came to light when TMZ posted an audio recording, purported to be of Collins and his estranged wife, actress Faye Grant, during a session with a therapist said to be from 2012, the year Collins filed for divorce. Grant questions Collins about the incidents, which Collins confirms also involved exposing himself to girls as young as 11 years old.

The NYPD says one allegation dates to 1972, and involved a then-14-year-old girl, related to Collins’ first wife, who made genital contact with Collins and who is now reporting it.

Because at least one of the girls involved was reportedly from New York, the NYPD is investigating. A police source tells ABC News Radio that whether or not Collins can be criminally prosecuted for the alleged acts will depend in part on what the statute of limitations is for them.

Collins, who turned 67 October 1, starred as Rev. Eric Camden on the CW’s "7th Heaven" from 1996-2007. His more recent roles include the TV series "Devious Maids" and "Revolution".

DID MARIAH CAREY ACCUSE NICK CANNON OF CHEATING?!: MARIAH CAREY may have accused NICK CANNON of cheating on her during a show in Tokyo. Carey was singing the Billie Holliday classic "Don't Explain," which is about a guy who comes home in the middle of the night with lipstick on his collar.

The original lyrics go, "Cry to hear folks chatter/And I know you cheat/Right or wrong, don't matter." But what Mariah sang was, "Cry to hear folks chatter/And I know you cheated, mother[effer]."

She doesn't call him out by name, but in light of what they're going through, it's a safe bet she was taking a shot at Cannon.

Speaking of Nick ... Here's a clear look at how Nick covered up his "Mariah" tattoo. (BEFORE) (AFTER)
