Some people take their music very serious – sometimes too serious. An Ohio man has been stabbed for not knowing that Jay-Z and Beyonce were married.
Donald Deaver was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing a 48-year-old Garfield Heights, Ohip man following an argument.
Fox 8 reports the fight began because the victim did not know that singer Beyonce’s husband is rapper Jay-Z. The incident occurred around 11:00 p.m. on December 31, 2011, outside Deaver’s apartment.
This story is both very funny and sad….
Artie Lange, this is not funny! As previously reported on andpop.com (and everywhere else), Artie Lange was hospitalized over the weekend in New Jersey for undisclosed reasons. Details of the hospital stay are now surfacing. TMZ reports that Lange’s publicists explains that Artie Lange was hospitalized due to a suicide attempt in which he stabbed himself nine times. Lange was found by his mother in his Hoboken apartment where the comedian was laying on the ground bleeding. Prior to his hospitalization Lange was mysteriously missing from The Howard Stern Radio Show on Sirius XM.
“We all have our demons,” said Stern, referring to Lange’s past battles with addiction. “Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He’s a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don’t forget how great he is.”
The line between relevant celebrity gossip and absolute nonsense is a fine one, almost indistinguishable at times. But as ridiculous as the following stories may seem, they are actually more entertaining than any Hills’ off-screen drama or Britney snafu.
First of all, TMZ had the rare - almost supernatural - occasion of reporting the headline “Clark Gable stabbed in the chest.” Seriously. But before your time-space continuum spins into a frenzy, let’s clear this up. It was actually the grandson of the original Clark Gable, Hollywood’s revered leading man.
Gable III was stabbed in the rib cage at a house party in Los Angeles, where he was involved in a verbal dispute and then rushed to hospital following the incident. He spent a week in hospital but is reported to be recovering. One person has been arrested and police are still searching for more suspects. I’m sure Gable III will cast this as an epic tale, but it hardly holds a candle to Gone With the Wind. Shame.
Shelley Malil, who played one of Steve Carell’s co-workers in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend as many as 20 times.
TMZ reports that Malil, who also starred in the “Wassup” Budweiser commercials, attacked the woman in her home in San Diego, chasing her inside and outside the house. He was later apprehended at an Amtrak station.
The victim’s two children were in the house at the time of the attack. Her condition is unknown.
Gaetano Thomas Oteri, the father of “Saturday Night Live” alum Cheri Oteri, has been stabbed to death with a pocket knife, reports TMZ.
His roommate, songwriter Richard William Fagan, has been charged for the murder and is being held without bond.
The two were friends, writing songs together. Mr. Oteri had even helped Fagan through some difficult times. Fagan’s website reads, “Many years ago when Fagan was down and out (see Fagan bio), it was Tommy who took him in and put him on a path to songwriting stardom.”
Fagan is the co-writer of several John Michael Montgomery songs, including “Sold (the Grundy County Auction Incident).”
