Well, this is, um, inneresting, to say the least.
Christian alleges the pageant girl wrote to him:
This loss has been difficult for celebs to process.
And, it seems Mel Brooks is having a particularly tough time coping with the death of Gene Wilder, who passed away on Monday due to complications with Alzheimer's disease.
The comedian stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday, and opened up to Jimmy Fallon about how much he misses his comedic partner in crime, saying:
"He was sick, and I knew it. And he was such a dear friend. I expected it. I expected he would go but, I don't know, when it happens, it's still tremendous. It's still a big shock, you know. I'm still reeling from that no more Gene. I can't call him. And he was such a wonderful part of my life."
Even though recalling his fondest memories of the Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory star was clearly emotional for the New York native, he went on to describe some of his best moments with the acclaimed actor.
He hilariously recounted the first time he met the thespian, pitching The Producers to him, crafting the concept for Young Frankenstein together, and many other enjoyable encounters.
And, Mel even got the audience laughing in the wake of Gene's sad passing. Take a look at the clip (above) for the filmmaker's touching tribute.
Our hearts are breaking for T-Pain and his family.
As you may know, the Up Down rapper's niece was recently identified as the woman who was fatally stabbed in Tallahassee, FL. So tragic!
According to reports, Javona Glover was stabbed to death on Tuesday morning outside of a Walgreens drug store, where she was also an employee. The authorities have revealed that Glover died at the scene after being found by paramedics bleeding heavily. In a sadder turn of events, it's said Miz Glover is survived by her two-year-old daughter.
As the devastating news hit the media, countless fans reached out to the industry vet via social media. Of course, this gesture didn't go unnoticed by the hitmaker as he took to Twitter and wrote:
What a hard day for Yolanda Hadid.
On Wednesday, Yolanda revealed the sad news that her best friend Ellie O'Connell has passed away after a five-year battle with ALS.
For those who don't know, ALS (AKA amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease), is a horrific condition which weakens the body's muscles until it can no longer function. At this time, the disease has no cure.
According to Hadid, Ellie sadly succumbed to her illness despite an amazing fight. O'Connell was hanging on to see her daughter graduate college in 2017, a wish which will tragically go unfilled.
Despite the heartbreak, the model did her best to honor her close pal's legacy in a touching Instagram post:
Prince's death continues to affect all of those close to the late singer.
As you know, the music icon was found dead in the elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota and an autopsy later confirmed that he had overdosed on a drug called Fentanyl.
Later, it was revealed the Raspberry Beret singer often stashed the drugs that killed him in over the counter pill bottles, such as aspirin and Vitamin C containers to hide his addiction.
For the Purple Rain artist's ex Charlene Friend, this discovery is just a reminder of how secretive Prince was about his drug use.
Although they spent several years in each other's company, the 44-year-old claims she never saw the multi-instrumentalist ever once do drugs, according to People. Wow.
But Friend does admit in hindsight, Prince's behavior makes way more sense.
Those who knew Gene Wilder are struggling to process his death.
On Monday, the icon passed away at 83 years old due to complications with Alzheimer's Disease. And on Tuesday, the man who once starred as Charlie alongside the late legend in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is speaking out about the sad loss.
Peter Ostrum opened up to Variety about the acclaimed actor's passing, admitting that his older costar was almost like a father figure, even though they hadn't seen each other since production wrapped on their 1971 film:
"It's kind of like losing a parent. You know it's going to happen, but it's still a shock. He was not in good health at the end and it was not unexpected by any means, but when it happens it hits you like, 'Gene is gone and there will never be anyone like him again.'"
Peter explained he only has fond memories of the Young Frankenstein alum, adding:
While for most of us that means marathoning his classic movies, and James Corden remembered the late actor with a touching tribute, Chris Martin and Coldplay found a more artistic way to honor the legendary comedic actor!
The British rock band paid tribute to the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory star by slipping a cover of the song Pure Imagination into their setlist Monday night!
The rockers took to Twitter to share the concert clip. Ch-ch-check out the vid (below)!
