In case you forgot, the reality TV personality was best known for spending over $100 thousand on plastic surgery in order to look like the Sorry singer. Toby's passion to look like the Biebs was discussed in episodes of Botched and My Strange Addiction. Tragically, Sheldon went missing last August 18 and was found dead only a few days later in a Motel 6 in the San Fernando Valley.

However, according to TMZ, Toby's cause of death has finally been revealed. The autopsy report shows that Sheldon had various types of narcotic painkillers and prescription drugs in his system when he died. Oh no!

Did Two Of Prince's Doctors Cross The Line & Contribute To The Singer's Fatal Drug Overdose? Here's What Police Are Working On Now!

| Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad SadHealthAddiction


It may be several months before we know exactly what led to Prince's fatal overdose back in April.

As the criminal death investigation rages on, TMZ reports three agencies — the FBI, the DEA, and the Carver County District Attorney's Office — are all working together to determine if two of the 57-year-old's doctors crossed the line with giving Prince access to drugs.

The medical professionals in question? We've told you their names before, physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld.

As a refresher, Schulenberg and Kornfeld's son Andrew were both present in the Purple Rain musician's home when he was found dead in his elevator after OD'ing on Fentanyl. Andrew had tons of synthetic opiates to treat addiction in his possession.

Since the tragic passing, Schulenberg has not been working at his clinic while poppa Kornfeld continues to practice at his Marin County, CA office.

If the state files charges against either or both of the doctors, the case will go to the District Attorney instead of the grand jury.

Woof. We're just hoping for some concrete answers sooner rather than later.

Stanford Rapist Brock Turner Lied To Court About His History Of Alcohol & Drug Use! See The Evidence!

no title

Why are we not surprised by this?

Stanford Rapist Brock Turner is currently public enemy No. 1 after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in January 2015, but if you thought his original sentence of six months was too light… prepare to get even more upset with the case.

That's because after it was reported that the 20-year-old will likely only serve three months of his punishment, new evidence has surfaced that shows he lied to courts about his hard-pAArtying history.

Apparently, the convicted felon initially painted himself as an "inexperienced drinker and party goer" to his probation officers while trying to blame his crime on Stanford's "college lifestyle."

But prosecutors on the case have issued a sentencing memo in regards to Brock's past, which not only proves that the swimmer was familiar with alcohol… he was also well-versed in drugs like ecstasy, acid, and marijuana:

This is so scary and real.

Scott Disick and Lamar Odom sit down together in this week's upcoming episode of KUWTK and have a heart-to-heart about the former NBA-er's recent near-death experience and recovery following a highly-publicized drug overdose.

Disick, of course, has struggled with his own addiction issues in the past — and while the two are usually fun, funny, and light-hearted in their KUWTK storylines, considering what each has gone through recently puts a decidedly different spin on their interaction.

The Recovery Without Walls practice consultant remembered how he felt when he dialed 911, writing:

"Believe me, nothing can prepare a person to walk into such chaos and sadness. As I told the 911 dispatcher on April 21, those on the scene were distraught, which was why I was the one to place the call. But what happened has made me think, long and hard, about what steps we must take to prevent such entirely unnecessary loss of life."

His father, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, was scheduled to fly out to help the singer through his struggle with opioid addiction, but the hitmaker passed away the day before they were supposed to meet.

And while police are investigating the way in which the songsmith was able to obtain the fatal drugs that took his life, Andrew admitted that people who deal with chronic pain will do anything to "escape the agony," adding:
