He will be missed…

As we wrote in October 2017, Tom Petty passed away at 66 after suffering a massive cardiac arrest.

Days later, the rock legend's death certificate listed his cause of death as "deferred," which meant officials were still waiting on autopsy results.

Fast forward to Friday, the results are in, and the Free Fallin' singer passed away due to "mixed drug toxicity."

According to TMZ, the musician died from an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking several medications including Fentanyl patches, oxycodone (Oxycontin), temazepam (Restoril), alprazolam (Xanax), citalopram (Celexa), acetyl fentanyl, and despropionyl fentanyl.

At the time, Petty suffered a number of medical problems, including emphysema, knee problems, and a fractured hip, made worse by his demanding tour schedule.

On the day of his heart attack, family members say his hip gave out, which may have led him to overtake his medication.

Additionally, when Petty went into cardiac arrest, medical officials were able to revive him until he lost pulse for 20 minutes during the ambulance ride to the hospital. When he arrived, he went into cardiac arrest again, and eventually passed away 21 hours later.

The report also says he suffered from coronary artery atherosclerosis.

Abby Lee Miller

Here's a new weight loss tip: go to jail!

JUST KIDDING! Do NOT do that!

As you know, Abby Lee Miller was sentenced one year and one day in federal prison after she plead guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June 2016.

Now, we're hearing the 51-year-old will not only be released next month — but she'll be looking WAY different as she's lost about 100 pounds since entering the facility six months ago. Wow!

According to ET, an insider says the Dance Moms star is feeling "great" and will be reporting directly to a halfway house in Van Nuys, California after being released from the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, CA on February 20.

As for her weight loss, it sounds like the reality star is looking to get multiple surgeries including a tummy tuck, breast lift, and excess skin removal after she's released.

It's important not to forget: Miller underwent gastric bypass surgery, a procedure that reduced her stomach by 80 percent, prior to her sentencing. So that definitely contributed to her weight loss!

The TV personality wrote of the process for her yet-to-be-named daughter:

"I have always been really honest about my struggles with pregnancy. Preeclampsia and placenta accreta are high-risk conditions, so when I wanted to have a third baby, doctors said that it wasn't safe for my — or the baby's — health to carry on my own."
