Three 6 Mafia Rapper Koopsta Knicca Has Died From A Stroke At 40 Years Old

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadHealth


This is just awful.

On Friday, Three 6 Mafia rapper Koopsta Knicca — whose real name was Robert Phillips — sadly passed away in a Memphis hospital.

The group's rep, Dove Clark, says the 40-year-old died following complications from a stroke that he had on Sunday.

DJ Paul, another member of the group, said on Thursday that the Tennessee native was fighting for his life but confirmed on Friday to Memphis blog Commercial Appeal that he had lost his battle. He said in a statement:

"Everyone who knew Koop knew he was very funny and the coolest guy ever. He will be missed. We made classics together that will live on."

Tragically, the two had been working on projects together that were unfinished before Koopsta's untimely passing. He added:

"Me and Koop had just started writing his new album Devil's Playground 2. But we didn't get a chance to record yet. We had concerts coming up starting next month too. He also just got a home in Vegas that he was moving to on Tuesday, but never got to even see it in person."

That's so heartbreaking.

Unfortunately, he wasn't the only member of Three 6 Mafia who has recently left us. In 2013, Lord Infamous died — also at the age of 40 — after suffering from a heart attack.

Our hearts are with everyone affected by this sad loss.

The actor, who famously appeared in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, started out as a heavyweight prizefighter who trained under famous boxer Rocky Graziano.

After scar tissue developed on Albanese's brain, Graziano helped him score his first acting gig in 1968's The Brotherhood. The accomplished actor also appeared in Dead Presidents and As the World Turns.

Our hearts go out to Albanese's family and friends at this trying time.

The investigation is still ongoing.

Angela Luke was arrested on Sunday in Bloom Township in Ohio after she allegedly ran over her husband with their car, while their kids were in the backseat.

At the time, she was booked for vehicular homicide because her spouse, Dan, had died from his injuries at a nearby hospital. But now it's looking like those charges are getting dropped.

Reports began to circle that, on Wednesday night, the prosecutor filed a request to dismiss the charges.

Then on Thursday, while a spokesperson for the lawyer's office didn't comment on the motion, the source did explain that Fairfield County Prosecutor Gregg Marx only has 30 days to decide whether or not to administer new charges.

The spokesperson also added that the investigation is ongoing.

Lt. Tim Voris revealed that the mother, who is a second grade teacher, claimed Dan had been abusing her, so she was leaving the home they shared and taking their 8- and 12-year-old children with her.

The 40-year-old said her husband was grabbing on to one of the car windows while she was attempting to drive away, but he lost his grip and fell in the way of her car.

He passed away after sustaining serious injuries to his head and upper body.

Angela had pleaded not guilty to the reckless and aggravated vehicular homicide charges she was facing.

Jackie Collins may have passed away last month, but we're just now getting to read the final words she had for her fans.

The best-selling novelist died at the age of 77, after losing a 7-year battle with breast cancer. But now — on her website — her team has released the last letter she wrote to her supporters.

In her message, The Santangelos author stressed the importance of getting tested regularly, in order to catch cancer early on:

"As you may have recently heard, I revealed that I have been LIVING life to the fullest with Stage 4 Breast Cancer for the past six and a half years. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my message is this: Early detection can save lives! Get regular mammograms, and/or tell your loved ones too. Low cost or free mammograms are offered through many national programs and community organizations, so do your research. Even if you've been screened, and you have a gut feeling that something in your body is off, get a second opinion!"

She expressed that, if you do get diagnosed with the disease, it's important to remain optimistic, writing:
