Former hockey player Derek Boogaard died in 2011 from an accidental overdose of painkillers and alcohol, and now his family is filing a wrongful death lawsuit againt the NHL.
An autopsy revealed that the late New York Ranger suffered from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) at the time of his death, which is caused by taking multiple blows to the head and suffering from concussions throughout his career.
The family's attorney William Gibbs claims the trauma caused Derek to become addicted to his pain medication, saying:
We've all seen Simon Cowell's no-nonsense, harsh tongue at work on both the judges panel for American Idol and X Factor, but this is just UGLY. And because of that, we sincerely hope that this not true.
According to a new report in Star Magazine, however, he's apparently told returning judge Demi Lovato that despite her well-documented public breakdown and rehab stint for self-harming and bulimia, she STILL needs to lose 20 pounds before the reality competition begins production next fall, and is demanding that she work off the weight this summer!
Too. Close. For. Comfort.
LiLo's recent Morningside Recovery drive-by could prove to be very costly, and we aren't just talking about all the money she wasted on gas to Newport Beach!!
Prosecutors are giving the actress until the butt-crack of dawn to get her behind checked into rehab or else they'll seek to issue another warrant for her arrest!!
The Mean Girls starlet rolled up to the unlicensed treatment center earlier today, but wound up checking into a Fry's Electronics instead!!
The courts, meanwhile, are absolutely fed up with Lindsay's shenanigans and they've drawn a line in the sand!!
This is just so sad!!
Everyone is pulling for Lindsay Lohan to make a full and speedy recovery during her 90-day stint, but we just found out The Canyons star checked herself into a treatment center that is operating WITHOUT A LICENSE!!!
Even worse, Newport's Beach's Morningside Recovery lost its license after a young patient in their care died at the facility!!!
Morningside treated a 20-year-old man for bulimia and alcohol addiction, but the poor guy went into cardiac arrest while doing push-ups and passed away!
It turns out the facility wasn't even supposed to be treating patients with eating disorders in the first place, so the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs revoked its license!!
One person at the department admitted:
While Amanda Bynes' recent, increasingly worrisome behavior can easily draw comparisons with some of the same problems that Britney Spears faced back in 2007, it appears that unlike the now-recovered pop sensation, the 27-year-old comedienne has yet to act out in a fashion that would warrant her to be placed under a court-ordered conservatorship!
In fact, until her behavior has the potential to injure herself or another, it seems that legal experts are convinced that as far as we all should be concerned, Amanda's behavior is pretty much on par with the majority of residents in New York City!
As legal consultant and alternative sentencing expert Wendy Feldman explains:
The zero hour is quickly approaching, but LiLo is pulling the old switcheroo!
Unhappy with both New York and SoCal as locations for her court-ordered rehabilitation, our luscious law-breaking diva is desperately trying to delay her treatment and/or move the location to a tropical Floridian paradise!!
Lindsay Lohan even enlisted the help of her younger bro, Michael Jr.!
He called the El Lay attorney's office BEGGING them to let the Mean Girls star spend 90 days at Lukens, a luxurious treatment center in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
One source close to the situation revealed:
Take that, Drake!!
After throwing shade at one of this generation's most popular rappers, even calling him ugly, Amanda Bynes put herself out there for the whole world to see!!
The Easy A star posted two really risqué SHIRTLESS selfies on Twitter just minutes ago, proudly flaunting her midriff… and totally showing off her tittays!!
We're proud whenever a person is so comfortable with their own body that they flaunt it to the entire world, but we're also nervous about the captions Amanda posted alongside the pics!
In one of them she says:
