Whitney Houston’s toxicology report is finally in and the coroner’s office determined that her death is accidental and the result of ”drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.”
Whitney was found in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton Hotel room on Feb. 11 the day before the Grammys, at age 48. Authorities collected several bottles of prescription drugs from her suite.
Although cocaine use and other drugs were identified, they did not contribute to her death. The toxicology report said: ”Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death.” [Source]
I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to deal with the death of a friend or family member while the whole world is watching and scrutinizing your every move. That’s why I feel for Bobbi Kristina Brown. After making headlines last week for falling asleep in a bathtub in the same hotel where her mother died, she is back in the spotlight for allegedly getting high after her mother’s funeral.
A couple hours after the funeral the family went to eat at a nearby restaurant but couldn’t find Bobbi. Two sources told The Daily Beast that she was found using drugs and that her family didn’t find her until just before the burial on Sunday morning.
Since then, the media has erupted with questions of whether she has a drug problem. Although her family won’t say she has a problem, it was reported well before Whitney’s death that Bobbi was photographed snorting cocaine.
Her spiral downwards is not uncommon with celebrities so it’s true that her behaviour shouldn’t be treated lightly. However, the girl’s mother just died and constantly berating her in the press isn’t going to make the situation any better. I can understand what lengths someone might go to to neutralize such fresh pain. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not condoning drugs in any way, I’m just saying that she has been through a lot and it’s not nice to kick her when she’s already down.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about the situation. What do you think?
Gaga appeared on Stern’s satellite radio show this morning, which cost Stern$500. Stern had placed a bet with his producer that Gaga wouldn’t show up. The interview was a tad awkward at times, where no question was considered off-limits.
Stern asked questions about her cocaine use, her sex life, and her music. Gaga responded to the question about losing her virginity by saying, “I’ve got a lot of young fans and I love you and I respect your show and I know you want to talk about sex and cocaine – but honestly you should wait as long as you possibly can to have sex… I really think that kids have sex way too young.”
Gaga was also brought to tears when a Stern staffer spoke to Gaga on the air about how much he admires her support for the gay community.
Stern was throughly impressed by Ms. Gaga, although the appearance cost him $500.
The Two and a Half Men star, in a bid to restore his name and stun the nonbelievers, has produced the results of an at-home drug test….and the results are negative!
That’s right, Charlie Sheen was apparently COMPLETELY SOBER during his controversial self-appointed “press tour” in which he smack talked his boss Chuck Lorre, the writers of his show, and inexplicably founding father Thomas Jefferson.
Staffers at Radar Online administered the urine test and confirmed negative results across the board.
Sheen has been challenged to take a more extensive blood test by some, a task that he has embraced and undertaken. The results aren’t out yet, but it seems unlikely that it’ll come back positive as the first check test is 99% effective.
So that was pure, untainted Sheen? That’s almost worse than discovering he was high! Yikes. At the very least the man needs an ego adjustment BIG TIME.
Bad news – Bruno Mars plead guilty to felony cocaine possession in a Las Vegas court room this morning. Good news – TMZ reports that if Mars keeps out of trouble for 12 months, the charge will be removed from his record.
TMZ reports Mars is also required to do 8 hours of private counseling and 200 hours of community service with a charitable organization. He must also pay a $2,000 fine, which he’s paying today .
As we reported in September, Bruno was caught doing coke in the bathroom of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
TMZ reports that Dr. Paul Nassif, husband of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof, was one of the two people who drove Charlie home from the hospital on Thursday.
Apparently the car ride was very casual, where they discussed “fun things.” Nobody brought up Charlie’s issues, and it was just a relaxing ride.
Wow Charlie, you are quite a guy! You have gotten to the point where you and your associates just accept a cocaine bender as a regular activity for you. Also good work on staying sober since Thursday.
Radar Online is confirming what we already assumed about Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen – most of his $2 million-per-episode paycheck goes to hookers and coke!
Sheen has reportedly spent more than HALF A MILLION dollars on “special friends” and “magic powder” over the past six months. He was notorious for having an “endless supply of eight-balls,” slang for an ounce of cocaine and widely proven to be just the right amount to overdose on.
According to sources, Sheen would spend his nights smoking cocaine with at least two ladies by his side. The habit cost him tens of thousands of dollars a night, but there was no way to stop him as he spiraled out of control.
“He would pay [his escorts] $5,000 to $10,000 for the night and would give them cash, check, or money transfer…he even bought two girls cars,” said a close friend.
Sheen checked into rehab this weekend following a slightly crazier than usual 36-hour cocaine bender.
Yikes! Maybe newly appointed saint Lindsay Lohan can offer some sound sober advice?
Bruno Mars got his Las Vegas cocaine case taken care of on Friday. The 25 year old pop singer accepted a plea which allows him to pay a fine, serve probation and have a felony cocaine possession charge against him dismissed.
The case stems back to September 2010 when he was arrested for possession of a controlled substance. The cocaine was found on him after security at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino were alerted by a bathroom attendant that the singer was doing drugs in a stall.
Mars accepted a deal where he will pay a $2,000 fine, perform 200 hours of community service and complete drug counseling.
Interestingly, we interviewed Bruno shortly after his drug arrest. However, we avoided the issue of his pending drug trial. But we were nevertheless charmed by the “Just the Way You Are” singer.
AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys (the one who was usually singing) is in rehab due to substance abuse. As reported by TMZ.com, the singer has been “out of control” in the last few months.
Washup teen bands, The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block were apparently supposed to team up for a tour, but McLean’s drug addiction has put a hold on the plans.
McLean has been dealing with drug problems for many years. In 2001 and 2002 he was in rehab for cocaine and alcohol abuse. The musician is beginning another sober journey. Hopefully this time he will reach enlightenment. Often times these celebrities who receive early success find trouble maintaining their lives without drugs and alcohol. It’s a deadly cycle we have seen regularly.
Perhaps McLean can seek guidance from recently released from rehab Lindsay Lohan.
Popeater is reporting that Lindsay’s parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, are incredibly proud of their daughter and firmly believe that she has taken huge steps toward getting fully healthy once more.
“She’s just a different person,” Dina explained in an interview with Matt Lauer. “Shes been in a couple facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her.”
In a separate interview with the Early Show, Michael echoed Dina’s sentiments. “She has taken the right steps and put the right people back into her life,” he gushed.
Lindsay’s parents have had a history of public feuding, especially over what is best for Lindsay, so it’s nice to see them agree about something for once!
Lohan is expected to stay in LA to work on her clothing line rather than return to her Long Island home. She has no upcoming film projects after dropping out of what was supposed to be her comeback vehicle, a Linda Lovelace biopic titled “Inferno”, due to her time in jail and rehab.
Keep up the good work, Lindsay! You can get better! We believe in you!
But what do you think? Do you think she is doomed or will she make it this time?
Capri Anderson has come forward to talk about the night she spent with Charlie Sheen while he was on a crazy cocaine bender.
Radar Online is reporting that Anderson has given exclusive interviews to Good Morning America and Nightline about the incident. Initially she was hired to escort Sheen to dinner, but after she was invited back to his room Anderson says “He started yelling racial slurs… he put his hands around my neck [and] I really thought to myself, you have gotten yourself in a bad, bad situation.”
Anderson “feared for her life” as she struggled out of Sheen’s grip and locked herself in the bathroom until the police arrived. Sheen was completely naked, coked up, and according to a source “shouting [the n-word] for no reason at all.”
Sources have revealed that Sheen was ‘very nervous’ about the interviews, but there’s been no word yet from the Two and a Half Men camp.
What are you doing, Charlie?! Your sitcom grosses RIDICULOUS amounts of money per episode and my grandma LOVES you. Why would you throw that all away?!
Lindsay Lohan is apparently taking her time in rehab very seriously and staying clean and sober. RadarOnline reports that even after a painful dental procedure, Lindsay has refused anything to ease the aches.
“Lindsay had tooth surgery this week,” said a source close to Lindsay, continuing, “She had teeth removed and won’t even take any painkillers for the pain.” Lindsay has been seen as a complainer in the past, so it’s surprising that after a dental surgery she’d be so willing to stick to her program.
She is currently at the Betty Ford Center in California receiving treatment for her substance abuse addiction—namely her cocaine and alcohol problems.
“She’s taking her time at Betty Ford very seriously,” the source said. Well, you know what they say; the 5th time’s the charm! Err… at least we hope so for Lindsay’s sake.
Where are his handlers in all of this?!
Charlie Sheen has totally fallen off his rocker, according to Radar Online. Ever since the star was released from a New York hospital after being treated for his excessive cocaine use, his life has been a constant parade of hookers, coke and alcohol.
Sheen was held in the hospital for a psych evaluation after tweaking out in his room at the Plaza hotel, dropping several N-bombs while his hooker du jour, porn star Capri Anderson, cowered in the bathroom. He later flew home to LA, but it seems apparent that his habit has followed him there.
“It’s been a non-stop party of drugs and hookers since Charlie [arrived home in Los Angeles],” one source says. “He is completely out of control. No one can get through to him.”
In all fairness, who wouldn’t stumble into a death spiral after wasting away on season after season of Two and a Half Men?
Somebody get this man into rehab stat!
A source told RadarOnline that the struggling actor was found “wasted at the restaurant” before he went nuts at a hotel. The source continued, “He was snorting cocaine and drinking vodka. He was also drinking wine… and he was wasted.”
That’s only the beginning though!
The source said that Sheen was at the restaurant with Capri Anderson, a porn star acting as his escort for the night (for the price of $12,000).
“At one point he convinced Capri to go to the bathroom with him. When they got into the bathroom he started snorting cocaine and then took off his pants,” the source said.
“Charlie wanted to have sex with Capri and tried but she stopped him and demanded her $12,000. He didn’t have the money on him so she left him in the bathroom!”
Capri alerted Sheen’s assistant about the actor’s state of mind, so the assistant went to check on him. “When the assistant opened the door, there was Charlie standing there naked with cocaine all over his face! He was delusional and just completely lost. Totally out of it,” said the source.
After leaving the restaurant and making it back to the hotel, Sheen allegedly smoked cocaine and trashed the room, naked, which is when the cops showed up.
Honestly, Charlie Sheen, you’ve got some big problems!
Lindsay Lohan checked into the Betty Ford Centre in order to stay sober, and despite doing so, the SCRAM bracelet around her ankle is still attached. According to RadarOnline, Lindsay can’t wait to get rid of the thing, and is doing everything she can to get it off.
“Lindsay wants her alcohol monitoring device off – now,” a source said. The source continued, saying that “Lindsay complains because it is supposedly very uncomfortable,” and that she is hoping that her lawyer will be able to set her free from the device soon.
Lindsay violated her probation after serving 13 days in jail, testing positive for cocaine, furthering the actress’ spiral downward. Judge Schnegg allowed Lindsay to post bail for the probation violation, but as a condition she has to wear the SCRAM up until, and maybe after, her next court hearing on the 22nd of October.
“Lindsay doesn’t understand why she has to wear the SCRAM because she voluntarily checked into rehab and she is tested for drugs while being at Betty Ford,” the source said.
We think it’s pretty obvious though, Lindsay.
Natalie was found to have 13 bags of cocaine in her purse after the car she was riding in was pulled over by Glendale, California police. Natalie has pleaded guilty to felony cocaine possession and has received a deferred judgment that could result in the charge being dismissed, reports PopEater.
The D.A. in the case tells PopEater Mejia will be required to undergo counseling and attend classes for the next 18 month
According to TMZ singer Bruno Mars has finally been officially charged with possession of a controlled substance after being arrested in Las Vegas last month.
On the 19th of September, Mars was arrested following an eye witness account by a hotel bathroom attendant who claims he saw the singer walk into a bathroom stall with a “baggie of white powdery substance.”
If Mars is convicted the maximum penalty is four years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Speculation as of now indicates that he won’t be serving any of that jail time though—he can thank his squeaky clean record for that.
PopEater reports that Japanese immigration authorities detained Hilton due to the charges and her pending sentence. Hilton was supposed to appear in Tokyo on Wednesday to promote her new fashion line, however that press conference has been cancelled. Hilton was forced to cancel the tour after she was denied entry into the country at Tokyo’s airport.
“I’m going back home, and I look forward to coming back to Japan in the future,” a smiling Hilton told reporters before departing on her private jet.
Lindsay Lohan is not taking these recent failed drug tests lying down.
TMZ reports that the Freaky Friday star is beginning to understand and admit that she has a serious drug problem after totally bombing two separate screens, one for cocaine. Friends say that Lohan is “beating herself up over [the tests]…she feels like she just ruined all these really great opportunities that were coming her way.” She’s also been spotted hitting up Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, though her eyes are still looking a little glassy and vacant to us…
Come on Lindsay! We know you can bounce back from this. Remember Mean Girls? That was a great movie! Get better so you can make Mean Girls 2 and earn buckets of money and spend it on normal celebrity things, like hover cars and unicorns!
Do you think the judge will believe in her sobriety efforts when her court date comes around?
Sources tell TMZ that a friend had recently borrowed Hilton’s purse and “probably” put the cocaine inside.
Paris is telling friends, “I had no idea the cocaine was there. I swear on my life.”
She is also saying, “It could be a setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am.”
