  • Leslie Carter, the 25-year-old sister of Nick and Aaron Carter, died  on Tuesday from an apparent drug overdose, according to the police report. The official cause of death is pending toxicology tests, but the Carters’ stepmother Ginger Carter told responding police at the family’s upstate New York home that Leslie took drugs for depression, schizophrenia, and anxiety, as well as muscle relaxants. What’s also quite sad is that Ginger Carter was also on drugs when speaking to police, with “slurred speech” and “glassy eyes,” to the extent that police feared she might be at risk for an overdose, too. Our thoughts go out to the Carter family. [People]
  • Frances Bean Cobain’s 2009 restraining order court papers about Courtney Love’s crazy drug-addled lifestyle have been released. In it, Frances claims their cat died from living in a trash-filled house and their dog died after eating Courtney’s pills; she also says Courtney frequently falls asleep holding lit cigarettes and that one night Courtney drove to an ex-boyfriend’s house to throw rocks and scream at his kids. Egads. The poor thing had her restraining order granted, fortunately. [Newser]

Bad-Boy Club Drug Could Be The Answer To Depression

Wow, I never thought I’d see the day: Special K is about to get a makeover! Remember the drug’s sleazy clubbing days in the ’90s? The highly-addictive drug, called ketamine, started off as a humble animal tranquilizer but worked its ways into the hottest night spots, sending users into an ecstasy that made time stand still — or, more accurately, into a “dissociative anesthesia” that could lead to a psychotic breakdown.

But here’s the latest twist in ketamine’s history: It could revolutionize the way depression is treated. I’m not talking your garden-variety blues. This is for real, serious, deep, clinical depression. How could something so toxic for club kids be so helpful for people who are ill? Read more...

  • Russell Brand may have divorced Katy Perry over drugs, sources tell Star magazine. “Katy runs with a really wild crowd,” a source says, including people who do cocaine. Russell is a notorious former addict and he allegedly didn’t want his wife around the stuff. Another source claims, “He gave her an ultimatum: ‘Get rid of your hard-partying friends or lose me forever!’” Past rumors have claimed Russell Brand had wild sex drive that Katy couldn’t keep up with, so who knows what is true?

The 911 call made by Demi Moore’s friends on Monday night has been released. (You can listen here.) A panicked friend says the actress is “convulsing” and “semi-conscious” after “she smoked something, it’s not marijuana, but it’s similar to … it’s similar to incense and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort.” The friends hand the phone around to each other — and at one point, if I’m not mistaken, two people address “Ru,” possibly referring to her daughter Rumer — as they urge the dispatcher to send paramedics immediately because she’s “burning up” and breathing “shakily.” Keep reading »

  • Demi Moore was taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Monday night after paramedics responded to a 911 call at her home.  The night before, People claims Demi Moore spend a “late night out” with her 23-year-old daughter Rumer Willis, where she was seen grinding on the butt of one of Rumer’s “90210″ co-stars, unbottoning his shirt and “stickling his bare chest playfully.” Sources say Demi has a substance abuse problem  — although which substance is unclear — and is checking into a facility for care. A statement from her rep said, “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.  She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.” She has also dropped out of plans to play Gloria Steinem in the “Lovelace” biopic. Oh dear. We like Demi and wish her the best! [TMZ, People, US Weekly] Keep reading »

  • If there’s one thing not to mix with alcohol, it’s prescription drugs. Heather Locklear learned this the hard way and was hospitalized yesterday afternoon after her sister called 911. A hospital spokesperson says Heather is awake and responsive right now, but law enforcement sources say the actress consumed a “dangerous mix” of drugs. In 2008, Heather’s doctor called 911 out of concern that she may have ODed on prescription meds. Get well soon, Heather Locklear! [TMZ, Starpulse]
  • Sinead O’Connor has called off her marriage with Barry Herridge yet again. The couple married, then split after 17 days, then got together again. In a message on her website, Sinead posted “The marriage [is] untenable so that is now over.  … I’m gonna be me. And if anyone doesn’t like that they can seek therapy. Because I am wonderful. Exactly as I am. As Bridget Jones would say.” While I admire her quotation of Bridget Jones, I am worried for this woman! Earlier this week, Sinead tweeted that she desperately needed a psychiatrist who could prescribe her meds. Hope she’s getting the help she needs. [The Sun UK]

These tales should scare you off going under the knife. Read More »

It turns out that fake butts and boobs are really versatile — and operate as great storage units. A 33-year-old Italian model was arrested and charged with smuggling more than five pounds of cocaine in her fake breasts and in her fake butt. Security officers stopped the woman at the airport after she failed to explain what she had been doing during her trip to South America. The woman apparently thought that wearing a tight fitting shirt would help get her through customs faster (ah, that old gem), but it only served to draw more attention to her, um, illegal assets. “They stopped her for questioning because she was so alluring and her story about why she was in South America just fell apart,” said Antonio Di Greco, police chief at Fiumicino airport. The woman, whose identity has been concealed, was charged with international drug trafficking and is currently being held at the Rome airport. So much for those implants paying for themselves.

Miley Cyrus Says She’s A “Huge Stoner,” Plus 18 Other Celebrity Potheads

She’s just being Miley, y’all. A super chill, relaxed, munchie-having Miley, that’s all. At her recent birthday party, hosted by Kelly Osbourne of all people, Miley was caught on tape announcing that she’s a “huge stoner” and “smokes a lot of f**kin’ weed,” after a Bob Marley birthday cake was unveiled. Cue the outraged parents declaring Miley an unsuitable role model for their children! Personally, I am not very moved. Don’t most teens/early-twentysomethings, have a stoner period at some point? I did. I turned out alright didn’t I? Not that I’m encouraging the use and abuse of illegal drugs, of course, but something tells me that Miley isn’t actually the “huge” stoner she claims to be. If you feel the need to talk about it, you’re probably not. [Buzzfeed]

Boston University professor Irina Kristy is a regular Walter White! The mathematics prof and her son Grigory Genkin (the Jesse Pinkman to her Walt) are facing charges for cooking and distributing methamphetamine. Genkin was charged with distribution of methamphetamine, conspiracy to violate drug law, and drug violation near a school zone. How very “Breaking Bad” of them! As one adorable BU student posited, “It could have been possible that Professor Kristy had no knowledge of the fact that there was a meth lab in her house.”

“Her son could have convinced her that it was some crazy lab experiment, but chances are she knew full well,” sophomore Urbashee Paul continued. “Although I do not support her involvement in the issue, I hope that it does not affect her chances to teach at BU.” [Daily Free Press]
