The world has lost a true fighter!

Boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter passed away at his home in Toronto on Sunday at 76 years old, after battling prostate cancer.

Carter spent nearly 20 years in jail after he was wrongfully convicted of murder in the 1960s, making him a prominent figure in the fight for racial inequalities. He was convicted twice for a triple homicide, despite the fact that no eyewitnesses identified him. In 1995, the case was overturned and he was free!

The boxer’s life was also made into a movie, The Hurricane, which gave Denzel Washington an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Carter.

Our thoughts are with everyone who had the opportunity to know him!

Rubin's inspiration lives on!

When Bay Area beauty Kimchi Truong traveled to Indio, CA last weekend to attend what has arguably become the world's most popular music festival, we doubt her friends and family ever fathomed the possibility that she might never return.

Unfortunately, they were wrong.

The 24-year-old girl collapsed at Coachella last Saturday, apparently as a result of overdosing on drugs and alcohol. Though she was quickly treated at nearby medical facilities and eventually rushed to John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, doctors were ultimately unable to save her.

After later being transferred to Desert Regional Medical Center, Kimchi was pronounced dead on Thursday.

Investigators say it all started Saturday night/Sunday morning when she

It all feels a bit too real now.

After her mysterious and tragic death, Peaches Geldof's body will be laid to rest on Easter Monday at St. Mary Magdalene church.

This will mark the second funeral for the Geldof family at the church where he mother, Paula Yates, was buried back in 2000.

The private ceremony will come two weeks after the British socialite and mother of two babies was found dead at the age of 25 in her home in Kent, England.

While her cause of death is still unknown, we do hope it gives her husband Thomas Cohen, her iconic father Bob Geldof, and the rest of her family some sort of closure.

Let us hope we will get some answers soon as to a cause of death, but in the meantime we will remember her wild smile that brought light to the already bright spotlight.

Paul Walker’s Brothers Sound Like Him Too? Fast 7 Using Them To Finish Dialogue!

We knew that Paul Walker's brothers would be standing in for the late actor, but apparently their voices are a key missing piece of production as well!

According to sources, Universal will use archival audio of Paul's voice for Fast 7, and merge that with the voices of his brothers Caleb and Cody.

While nothing could ever fill the hole that Paul's death left in the entertainment community, his brothers will apparently be able to fill the gaps in his archival audio for dialogue purposes.

Sources say that the two brothers were tested for audio, and certain words sounded better from Caleb, and others from Cody, so the two will both be assisting in the production to get the dialogue to where it needs to be.

On top of that, it seems that Caleb and Cody have already started working on the flick!

It's really nice that the people behind Fast 7 are including Paul's family. It's so clear how he loved being in that franchise.
