Lil Peep

More details are coming to light surrounding the death of rapper and YouTube star Lil Peep.

According to the Tucson Police Department, it's suspected the 21-year-old overdosed on Xanax before he was pronounced dead at 8:53 p.m. on his tour bus Wednesday night.

Sgt. Pete Dugan told the press of the investigation:

"Based on information [police] were told and evidence that was found in the tour bus, they had evidence of a possible drug overdose, most likely from Xanax. Based on evidence, there was drug paraphernalia found inside the bus and some narcotics."

The official cause of death will be released by the medical examiner after toxicology reports.

Peep was scheduled to perform at The Rock nightclub when members of the crew realized they hadn't seen the artist in a while. His reps found the artist unresponsive in the tour bus, and firefighters were unsuccessful in trying to revive him at the scene.

Sgt. Dugan said aggravated assault detectives arrived later to continue the investigation:

"If it was an 80-year-old person, we probably wouldn't have called our aggravated assault [detectives] but a 21-year-old should not just drop dead for no reason."

So, so sad.

We'll keep you posted as the official cause of death is announced.

Matthew Perry's friends might not be there for him, but porn star Maddy O'Reilly will be.

The adult film actress fears the recovered addict is relapsing after he allegedly hit her up two weeks ago asking if she knew anyone who could help him "purchase some pills."

Maddy told DailyMail that the Friends star, a former lover of hers, contacted her asking to get him "40/50" prescription pills. When the 27-year-old asked what kind, the actor replied:

"Vicaden (sic)/Roxy's/oxys."

Perry, an outspoken advocate for addiction recovery since going public with his own substance abuse issues, was referring to Vicodin, Roxicodone and OxyContin — three highly addictive opioid painkillers.

In purported text exchanges obtained by DailyMail, the sitcom actor apparently told the porn star he would be willing to pay "a lot" for the pills — a desperate plea that worried the adult actress. She told DM:

It's been reported that Kevin Spacey has checked into a luxury rehab center in the Arizona desert for sex addiction treatment — the same facility as fellow alleged serial assaulter Harvey Weinstein.

Sources tell DailyMail.com that Spacey arrived in the $36,000-a-month clinic late last week, following the flood of sexual assault and harassment allegations made against him.

UPDATE 7:44 A.M. EST: It appears that Lamar Odom is totally fine following his fainting spell at an El Lay nightclub. According to the American athlete's reps, Lamar passed out due to dehydration. Apparently, Odom had an intense workout earlier in the day and didn't get the necessary fluids he needed. It's said the hotspot was also VVV, well, hot.

Per the spokespeople, Lamar is "doing great." Phew.



So scary to see something like this, especially with a person like Lamar Odom who has long been battling addiction.

According to TMZ, the now-retired NBA star was "drinking for several hours" at a nightclub in El Lay late last night and early this morning before he suddenly collapsed in the VIP booth, leading security to rush in and take care of him.

Uh Oh — Lamar Odom Spotted Partying At A Strip Club Until The Early Hours!

lamar odom strip club sighting

This can't be good for Lamar Odom's sobriety, right??

On Tuesday evening, Khloé Kardashian's ex hit up an El Lay strip club where he danced and threw money about until 2 a.m. Clearly, this outing has raised some eyebrows as drugs, drinking, and partying led to his 2015 overdose.

After nearly dying in a Nevada brothel, the former NBA star has had some up and downs on his road to a full recovery. While it seemed as though the 37-year-old has been in a better place these days, we can't say for sure that Odom's "living sober" like he was in March 2017.

Although, we HOPE he's living a clean life. Be sure to ch-ch-check out evidence of Lamar's strip club visit (below)!

New Details Into Harvey Weinstein Being Difficult In Treatment: 'He Doesn't Think He Needs Rehab'

| Filed under: RehabAddictionSexControversy

Harvey Weinstein needs to do better.

Harvey Weinstein's treatment amid his sexual harassment and assault scandal is NOT going well!

With reports revealing the disgraced producer isn't taking it seriously, it's being said he's become difficult in facing his issues "head-on."

A source told People the 65-year-old is staying at a luxury hotel in Arizona while attending the outpatient sessions, but still:

"He's not listening to anyone. He agreed to treatment, but he doesn't think he needs rehab."

A different insider disagrees, saying Harvey "wants help":

"His team set him up at a secure place to get him the help he needs — he knows and wants help."

Unfortunately for him, reports of him being hostile in group sessions by ranting about conspiracy theories against him, being rude by showing up late, falling asleep while others are talking, and accepting phone calls on his banned cell phone aren't going for him.

The source continued, adding "he is making plans to return to LA in the near future."

That might explain why "he is focused on business and in constant contact with people," as the confidant continued to spill.

He sounds delusional.

Especially as the LAPD is opening an investigation as two new women have accused him of rape.
