It turns out that Simon Monjack died from acute pneumonia and severe anemia, which were the exact same things that his wife Brittany Murphy died of five months prior! The Los Angeles County Coroner also said that there were some prescription drugs in his system—just like Murphy—but not in lethal levels. What are the chances of a couple dying of the exact same thing, five months apart? Doesn’t it seem kind of fishy? There should really be a more logical explanation, like maybe their house was poisoning them with asbestos or something? I mean, otherwise healthy people don’t normally die of pneumonia, or anemia for that matter. Maybe the symptoms were side effects of one of the prescription drugs they were both taking? Maybe it’s an elaborate cover-up to hide the fact that there are aliens living among us? Not to be totally freaking out, but it’s kind of like when I thought my great-grandfather died because he had no teeth—there’s gotta be a better explanation. Or maybe it’s just a super creepy fluke. What do you guys think—conspiracy or coincidence? [People] Keep reading »
“A lot of people sit there and say, ‘Yeah, she pushed him.’ This and that. People are so cruel, they don’t even know. I was upstairs, he was downstairs. How am I going to push him? … The doctors told us that even if they had done surgery on him, he would’ve died. He would’ve bled to death during the surgery. Even if they did take a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same. He’d basically be like Muhammad Ali … I mean, Gary was gone. I don’t want people to be so hard on me thinking I had to pull the plug too early. He wouldn’t have made it anyway. His heart would’ve just given out. I don’t want people to sit there and think I’m a bitch, and that I didn’t care about him.”
– Shannon Price, Gary Coleman‘s ex-wife, defends her decision to take him off life support in a video recorded the day after he died. The funny thing is, at the time she recorded this video, no one had publicly accused her of injuring him, according to TMZ. Maybe she still had a guilty conscious from the time they both were arrested for alleged domestic violence against each other. [TMZ via PopEater] Keep reading »
Over the weekend, Corey Haim‘s mom went public, saying that the coroner’s office told her Corey had an enlarged heart and water in his lungs. But it will be a while before a final cause of death is determined. Meanwhile, details continue to surface about just how bad Corey’s prescription pill addictions were. “We know that Corey Haim used a lot of legal drugs, shopped a lot of doctors and went to a lot of pharmacies and, at least in one instance, got OxyContin from an illegal syndicate,” California Attorney General Jerry Brown said. “My hunch is he was using massive amounts of these drugs.”
And it appears that Corey might have stumbled into a big old prescription pill fraud ring. Here’s how it worked. Keep reading »
Yesterday, we shared with you 10 classic Corey Haim flicks. Apparently, Corey had shot a new one before he died, which will come out in mid-April. In “Decisions,” Corey played Lou Andreas, a corrupt cop lacking in social graces. Check out a clip above. “Corey was a professional and had no sign of any drug abuse at all,” said the movie’s producer. Too bad his acting technique seemed to be yelling a lot. [TMZ] Keep reading »
Corey Haim and Corey Feldman were the Betty and Veronica for tweenage girls in the ’80s. There wasn’t a single one of us who wasn’t dreaming a little dream about the two Coreys back in the day. Sadly, one half of this pop-culture PB & J has passed away. RIP, Corey Haim.
What was it that made the Coreys so darn appealing? That together they made the perfect guy. They were the yin and yang of dudeness, totally opposite yet completely complementary. But as it goes in life, you can only pick one team to play for. And the Corey you had the hots for says a lot about your personality. So did you rip out Tiger Beat centerfolds of Haim, the popular boy with a hidden dark side, or Feldman, the neurotic, bad boy with a heart of gold? After the jump, what your Corey preference says about you. Keep reading »
