According to the NY Daily News:

A source said Hoffman, a father of three, was found alone with a needle in his arm in the bathroom of the apartment. Police sources said two bags of heroin were found at the scene. They were not empty, sources said.

Hoffman was working on a few projects including  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 as well as the television series Happyish.

His family released the following statement:

“We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Phil and appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone. This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you respect our privacy during this time of grieving.  Please keep Phil in your thoughts and prayers.”

This is so crazy! Rest in peace Philip Hoffman.

Ciara has confirmed the rumors to be true about a baby for her and rapper Future. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but the clothes were getting less and less tighter as time has passed.

For months everyone has been waiting for the engaged couple to reveal the big news. The I’m Out singer went on The View to do some promotional rounds for herself and Degree for Women. There she formally announced that she is going to be a mommy!

I can hear a few people saying “I told you so!”

Congrats to Future and Ciara!

That’s exactly what  happened to one of Kim Kardashian’s fans on Friday night during her fiance’s Yeezus concert stop in New Orleans. The fan, a 19 year old girl with the twitter name @MyleezaKardash tweeted that she was looking for Kim before the show. Kardashian saw the tweet and told the fan to DM her so that her security could bring her and her friend to the VIP section.Kim_Fan_Tweet

The happy teen tweeted the exclusive details to her exciting night on twitter. She also noted that Solange Knowles and her son Juelz were nearby as well. After the concert Kim invited the girls to come backstage to meet Kanye. Myleeza was super excited and said that he was nice.

See there people? I’m not the only person that thinks that Kanye West is still nice!

Later that night Kim sent a tweet out to Myleeza saying this:

@MyleezaKardash I had the best time, so happy you did too! Xo — Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) December 6, 2013

The super stoked fan ended her story with this:

“Kim said, ‘Bye Myleeza! Thank you guys so much for coming!’ I said, ‘No, thank YOU sis! I love you! And she said, ‘I love you too!’ THE END! BEST MOMENT OF ALL MY 19 YEARS OF LIVING.”

Whether it was sincere or a great PR move, Kim Kardashian did a very sweet gesture over the weekend. It’s the holidays and the Christmas season always makes us all cheerful (except for some on Black Friday)! What have you guys done to make someone’s day?

Did Epic Drop TLC Because of Pebbles? Guess Again!

There seems to be a rumor going around that TLC has been dropped by Epic Records after signing a deal with the company four months ago.

 

TLC_Radio_Interview_Power105.1

However this is completely…FALSE!

Who knew any movie could spark up so much drama? Especially when the story has been told numerous times before. I guess the visual of it all finally made Sister Perri say enough! Did anyone catch how she was quick to say she believed that Chili slept with her husband, L.A. Reid but kept saying she couldn’t speak about the alleged false portrayal of herself in the movie because “of the confidentiality” as she put it…

Something ain’t clean in the water!

Anyway…back to the story at hand! A TLC fan site reported that TLC had been dropped from Epic Records (Where L.A. Reid is the boss) after just signing with them back in July. When asked why they responded that it was because of Reid’s ex wife Pebbles who is on a campaign to shut down the supposed “lies” going on about her role in their bankruptcy. 

:NEWS: – TLC have been dropped from Epic Records.

— TLC NEWS (@OfficialTLCNews) November 21, 2013

WHAT?

After this began to circulate around the internet, TLC member Chili set the record straight:

@CarlissaOwens @TheRealTBOZ : until we release an official statement don’t assume “talk” is real

— Chilli (@officialchilli) November 21, 2013

You know this TLC vs Pebbles beef is getting quite old already. I mean seriously if Ms. Perri thought they they slandered her image with that movie then why didn’t she do anything to nip this in the bud years ago when they first claimed she took all of their money? However I digress. There are three sides to this story: Pebbles side, TLC’s side and the truth. Let’s just all get along and get over it!

I will say I did check the artist page on Epic’s website and I didn’t see them on there. It seems as if it may only be new artist on the site with the exception of Michael Jackson.
