The man law officials say sold Philip Seymour Hoffman the heroin that eventually killed him is now being linked to two other drug-addicted celebrities who died untimely deaths!
Robert Vineberg, who is currently charged with heroin possession with the intent to sell, was also friendly with artist Jean-Michel Basquiat before he died of an overdose in 1988!
Basquiat was a good friend of fellow artist Andy Warhol and is best known for his paintings that focused on social commentary and class struggle.
Sources say Robert and Jean-Michel actually used to shoot up inside the alleged dealer's apartment - the same apartment that Philip Seymour Hoffman allegedly visited to score drugs.
Robert, a well-known jazz saxophonist who has worked with several top musical acts, worked with Amy Winehouse on her 2003 album Frank.
Whether Robert ever used drugs with Amy is unknown. The British singer tragically passed away from alcohol poisoning in 2011.
Heroin is a horrible, horrible thing. We’re still so sad to see it take another life.

It sounds like this has been a problem for awhile!
Chris Kattan was recently arrested for a DUI, where he admitted to the police that he had taken some prescription drugs.
And this isn’t going to help his situation at all!
The former Saturday Night Live cast member appeared on Food Network’s Rachael Ray vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off last month, and he fell asleep while filming!
It looks like it could have been an act for the cameras, but his co-castmates expressed their concern about his behavior!
Apparently, Kattan told them that he’d been out drinking with his old SNL buds, and was just tired.
Hmm… Take a look at the video (above) and tell us if you think it was all for the camera, or if this is a warning sign!
The fiancé of Julia Roberts’ half-sister Nancy Motes is coming forward following the tragic death of his wife-to-be.
After Nancy was found dead of an apparent drug overdose on Sunday, word spread of a suicide note that was left behind that blamed Julia for driving her to do this!
John Dilbeck, who was engaged to Nancy, wants the world to know though that she loved each and every member of her family, despite the supposed note and cryptic tweets that Motes posted on Twitter last year.
In a statement, Dilbeck broke his silence, saying:
Say it ain't so!
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has a lot of explaining to do if this turns out to be the truth!
Some new texts from Jenelle have come to light that seem to prove the reality star has been toking massive amounts of marijuana while she's been pregnant, and it doesn't seem like she's going to stop her weed habit anytime soon!
Jenelle was recently in Los Angeles, and tried to make plans with her friend to get high and
Congress is tired of having to hide their pot in cookie jars and stuff, so they're finally pushing for President Obama to reclassify the drug that should've have been classified so poorly to begin with!
And when we say Congress, we totally don't mean all of them — but 18 of them at least!
Oh, and they're all Democrats. Whatevs! They're asking the President to put his money where his mouth is after his latest mention of the sticky icky and how it's no worse than alcohol!
Specifically, they want him to
At the time of his apparent overdose, Philip Seymour Hoffman might've been under more pressure than anyone realized!
The police who discovered the actor's lifeless body also found heart-wrenching diaries detailing his struggles with drug abuse, but now we're learning those tragic pages contained other scandalous information!
Sources say they prove that the heroin-addicted actor was embroiled in a super dramatic love triangle at the time of his death.
His relationship with baby momma Mimi O'Donnell was complicated already, but there was ANOTHER woman in the mix, too!!!
Each of us is coping with Philip Seymour Hoffman's death differently and many of us are paying our respects to the acting legend in our own way, but this might be one of the coolest memorial tributes we've seen yet!
Earlier this week an artist by the name of Michael DeNicola painted a portrait of the fallen actor in the West Village!
Grab a box of Kleenex and ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Aww! How touching! Especially considering it's a sentiment being passed from one artist to another!
Philip's death has deeply affected millions! It breaks our heart!
Isn't it AH-Mazing how a man can touch the lives of so many folks in just 46 short years on Earth?
