This is really sad to hear.

Earlier this week, the Blurred Lines rapper revealed in a radio interview that his business relationship with the Fancy hitmaker "took a bit of a rest stop" — prompting speculation that he was dropping his Aussie protege!
Now, the 34-year-old is backpedaling on his recent comments, insisting that the two ARE still collaborating!
On Wednesday, Tip revealed in a radio interview that he was ending his business relationship with the Black Widow hitmaker!
But apparently, Tip forgot to mention to his former protege that their professional relationship was ending — because Iggy said she had NO idea there were any issues between the two of them!
She shared on Twitter:
On Wednesday, the Whatever You Like rapper stopped by Hot 97's Ebro In The Morning to discuss his new mixtape, when he revealed that his working relationship with the Aussie rapper "took a bit of a rest stop!"
When host Ebro Darden asked if the two have talked, T.I. responded, "personally, no!" — ouch!
Tip added that his professional relationship with Iggy went downhill because he couldn't continue to publicly defend her after her Twitter feud with Azealia Banks and Q-Tip — who both accused her of appropriating black culture!
T.I. had this to say:
Please take a moment to bid T.I. a fond farewell because, much like Puff Daddy and Snoop Lion, his musical moniker is no more.
The songbird says that he has officially changed his name to Tip, a move that's been in the making for almost a decade now.
In an interview with Big Von on 106 KMEL this week, the hitmaker explained the switch is all for the fans who have followed him since day one.
For those of you who may not remember, the 34-year-old went by Tip when he was first starting out, but settled for T.I. because it was too similar to Q-Tip, who was also signed to Arista Records at the time.
But now, he's decided the timing is right for him to get back to the way it all began, and his EP Da' Nic is his first project under the new name.
Ch-ch-check out Tip explain his evolution in the full interview (below)!
Wow. It's hard to believe it's been 14 years since that fateful day in New York City.
Although many hardworking men, women, and children tragically passed too soon, we still celebrate their lives every year — and we're not alone.
Many of Hollywood's biggest stars have taken to social media, posting touching tributes in remembrance of September 11, 2001.
Prepare yourselves, because Mr. Squarepants is coming to Broadway!
The SpongeBob Musical is in the works, and it'll open in June 2016 in Chicago before moving on to the Great White Way for the 2016-2017 season.
Directed by Tina Landau, The SpongeBob Musical will feature original songs by Aerosmith frontmen Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, and include other original songs from The Flaming Lips, John Legend, Lady Antebellum, Cyndi Lauper, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T's, They Might Be Giants, and T.I.
What the what?! T.I.??
Landau said of the musical:
T.I. has been a naughty boy!
According to legal docs, T.I. and his wife, Tiny, owe a whopping $4.5 million dollars in unpaid taxes. The lapses occurred between 2012-2013 just six years after the rapper bought a mansion in 2006 for $4.26 million dollars.
Yikes! Where did all of that Blurred Lines money go?! Not to mention T.I. is one of the top ten highest paid rappers of 2015 in addition to being worth $215 million.
If the father of two doesn't pay up, everything he owns could be up for grabs. Ouch!
As of now, the Whatever You Like singer has not responded to the allegations.
