(San Fernando, CA-AP) — Officials say Rapper Mac Miller’s death is being attributed to an accidental overdose. The 26-year-old was pronounced dead at his San Fernando Valley home on September 7th.
Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner ruled Miller died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol. The report adds that while he did not take a lethal amount, it was the combination of the substances that killed him. Miller suffered from substance abuse issues following his breakup with pop star Ariana Grande.
(Los Angeles, CA) – Pop star Demi Lovato is awake in the hospital after an apparent drug overdose. Lovato was rushed to Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Medical Center after being found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home this morning.
Demi hasn’t shied away from her problems. She may have exaggerated sober stories, but she’s never lied about having substance abuse, bulimia or cutting problems as she talked about candidly with Robin Roberts back in 2011.
According to reports, the singer was treated with Narcan, a drug that can reverse the effects of opioid overdoses. Her spokesperson said she is with her family, and that some of the reports about her are incorrect. Lovato has struggled with substance abuse issues in the past and lived in a sober living home after being released from a treatment center.
(Oakland, CA) – Oakland rapper G-Eazy is arrested in Sweden on suspicion of assault, possession of narcotics and use of narcotics. That’s according to TMZ, which released video of Eazy being escorted out of a Stockholm club in handcuffs.
Sources say the “No Limit” singer was hanging out at the club after his concert performance last night and became “belligerent.”
Police were called when Eazy allegedly threw punches at security guards who tried to calm him down.
(SL) – A video featuring an Odell Beckham lookalike has the internet buzzing. Whether or not it is in fact the Giants star or someone else or if the video is current is up for debate but if it is him, it’s not a good look.In the short clip, Odell Beckham is seen laying in bed next to a pizza holding what appears to be a blunt or marijuana cigarette. Not too exciting right? The female next to him is what makes the video inappropriate and potentially costly for the baller. She’s holding a card and lining up a white substance that many think is cocaine. The wide receiver has been laying low in the off season while he reportedly attempts to negotiate a new deal. Rumor has it that he’s hoping to up his pay to $20 million per year. He’s currently on a $8.5 million deal after New York picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract.
Beckham has been on a Nike-sponsored trip to Europe. A Giants spokesperson says, “We’re aware of the video, but we don’t have any comment beyond that.”
Some say the NFL could step in with a suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. But…that’s assuming your assumptions are correct in that it’s him in the video and that it’s marijuana in the blunt like cigarette. To be continued…
