Afeni Shakur

Afeni Shakur, a longtime political activist and mother of the late rap legend Tupac, has tragically passed away at the age of 69.

According to the Marin County Sheriff's Office in Sausalito, CA, police responded to a report of cardiac arrest at Shakur's home around 9:43 p.m. and transported her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead not even an hour later.

Devastating.

As we told you in March, Afeni recently filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, who was supposedly gunning for half of her son's estate. Yikes!

Authorities say a coroner will investigate the exact cause of death, but for now it seems to be an apparent heart attack.

We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shakur family during this difficult time.

Former Rolling Stone Writer Reveals Prince's Biggest Fear Was To 'Die Alone'

Filed under: R.I.P.PrinceSad Sad

What a sad revelation.

In an emotional piece for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, former Rolling Stone writer Neal Karlen divulged very personal details about his longtime friendship with Prince. The two first met when a then 25-year-old Neal conducted an in-depth interview with the singer decades ago.

Now Karlen is speaking out on the darker side of the legend, on everything from his alleged depression to loneliness. N.K. even went as far to claim that the 57-year-old's greatest fear was to die alone.

In his heartbreaking essay, Neal wrote:

"I just pray to God Prince was dead by the time he hit the floor. I just pray Prince wasn't cognizant, even for a mite of a moment, that he was dying alone in a nondescript elevator, in a Wonder Bread suburb of the city that was one day too late in telling him we loved him as much as he loved Minneapolis. Because there's one thing I'm positive I know about Prince. After knowing him in forever alternating cycles of greater, lesser and sometimes not-at-all friendship over the last 31 years: His biggest and perhaps only fear was dying alone."

Wow. It's an especially tragic detail considering it would appear the icon died alone in his Paisley Park mansion. Sadly, the elevator didn't have a phone and the musician was found without a cellphone at his time of death.

Elaborating on the intimate details about the artist's complicated life:

"I always told Prince I knew he really didn't consider me a friend, but as one of the few people in Minneapolis who was probably awake, like he always was, in the middle of the night, and was 'Willing and Able,' as my favorite song of his is titled, to talk about loneliness and death. The phone rings at 4:48 in the morning. ‘Hi, it's Prince,' says the wide-awake voice calling from a room several yards down the hallway of this London hotel. ‘Did I wake you up?' No, you jerk, you never woke me. Well, actually you did a couple times, but I was always happy to hear from you, even when you were so lonely and depressed you could barely speak."

So emotional. We had no idea the creative had such low points in life.
