Glee star Corey Monteith has been found dead in Vancouver in his hotel room earlier today.
Vancouver Police have just confirmed his death. Within the past half hour, we received a tweet stating that Corey had died but it was not coming from a news source that we knew. Since then Vancouver P.D. has confirmed his passing to several media outlets.
In March earlier this year, Corey checked into rehab for substance abuse, and the earlier Internet rumor was of a drug overdose, but Vancouver P.D. say they do not know cause of death.
His body was found after noon at Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel on the 21st floor. he has been at the hotel since July 6th and was due to check out today. When his check out time came and went, hotel staff went to his room and found his body.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Developing Story....
4 years ago today, I posted the photo above with the story of Michael Jackson's passing. It was one of the hardest things I ever had to write.
I was able to confirm very quickly his death with different sources than TMZ...but CNN taking forever to confirm his passing. The comments section went nuts. Some calling me a liar til the L.A. Times confirmed our sources. Trust me, to this day, I wish I was wrong.
"The Sopranos" James Galdofini has died of a massive heart attack at the age of 51. The heart attack happened in Italy.
The New York Daily News has confirmed his passing with their own sources.
Galdofini's wife, Deborah Lin, gave birth to their child last October. They have been married since 2008.
He won 3 Emmy's as Tony Soprano during the show's run. He first broke into the industry back in 1992-DocFB
We are just finding out this morning that Bruno Mars' mother Bernadette Hernandez has died of a brain aneurysm. She was 55 years old.
The news broke via press release this morning from Atlantic Records. It was reported that Bernadette had a heart attack on Friday in Hawaii.
Bruno had an extremely close relationship to his mom and he cites the reason he has stopped using drugs is because of the embarrassment he felt by his mom when he was busted with cocaine possession in Las Vegas a few years ago. He has even tried "E" cigarettes recently to stop smoking for his mom.
Bruno Mars' first song he recorded was when he was four years old entitled "I Love You Mom" which is posted above.
Hernandez immigrated from the Philippines and wanted Mars's to stay family oriented.
Bruno's tour is scheduled to kick off later this month. No word yet of his mother's passing will effect the tour.
We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the entire Mars'/Hernandez family.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The proud mom below talking about her son....
It was Saturday Night when we first heard of the passing of Leroy "Sugafoot" Bonner and it took us a while to write about someone who means so much to the world of Funk.
Sugafoot was the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Ohio Players. Songs like "Skin Tight", "Heaven Must Be Like This", "Fire", "Honey" and "Love Rollercoaster". Countless jams that produced sweaty bodies on the dance floor and plenty of babies at home.
The front man died in Dayton, Ohio Saturday Night at the age of 69 with no cause of death being announced.
Sugafoot, thank you for the jams, the grooves, the education of real music by real musicians. You will be missed but your music will live on forever.-DocFB
Diagnosis: A Funk Legend....
More information from the coroner's report has been released and unfortunately, it is not good. A large amount of prescription medicine were found on Brittany Murphy's night stand.
Here is a quote from the coroner's office: “A check of the nightstands revealed large amounts of prescription medication in the decedent’s name. Also noted were numerous empty prescription medication bottles in the decedent’s husband’s name, the decedent’s mother’s name and unidentified third party names.”
TMZ was able to obtain the coroner's exact notes and drugs: According to the notes, the medications included Topamax (anti-seizure meds also to prevent migraines), Methylprednisolone (anti-inflammatory), Fluoxetine (depression med), Klonopin (anxiety med), Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar med), Ativan (anxiety med), Vicoprofen (pain reliever), Propranolol (hypertension, used to prevent heart attacks), Biaxin (antibiotic), Hydrocodone (pain med) and miscellaneous vitamins.
Notice there is a diabetic prescription in there, so there is a chance that Brittany's mother could be right and it had something to do with her mixing her diabetic medicine with others.
I want to state again something that other celeb bloggers are not reporting for their own stupid ego and it is this: NO ILLEGAL DRUGS WERE DISCOVERED. NO DRUG PARAPHENLIA. NO ALCOHOL CONTAINERS WERE FOUND.
Not sorry for that in bold. I just want to make sure you all see that.-Dr.FB
