Sad news.

It's said that the founding member died at 7:30 a.m. while in hospice care in Danvers, MA. It was Berry's father John Berry III who confirmed the news to Rolling Stone. Apparently, the musician suffered from frontal lobe dementia — which had gotten much worse in the past few months. How sad!

Catholic Church Will Allow Gay Couple To Get Buried Next To Each Other — Just Not With Their Same Sex Marriage Tombstone…

no title

Even if you're a bigot… this doesn't make much sense.

Michael DeLeon and Greg Bourke have spent the last 30 years together, have been married since 2004, and have even raised two children as a couple, but they may not be able to spend eternity together.

That's because a Catholic Church in Louisville, Kentucky has allowed the husbands to get buried in their cemetery… they just can't do it with the tombstone they had in mind!

Apparently, Michael and Greg, both 58, applied to be buried at the Catholic Archdiocese of Louisville in order to take the burden off their kids, but their gravestone depicting two male hands with wedding rings above the Supreme Court was deemed inappropriate for the Church back in March.

According to Catholic Charities executive director Javier Fajardo, the diocese believed the gay symbol went against the Bible, saying:

This breaks our hearts.

A Massachusetts man suffered repeated tragedies after losing three family members in a span of two weeks.

Domingos Fraga's nightmare began when his wife of five months Liz, who had a healthy pregnancy with no complications, had to undergo an emergency C-section and subsequently died of blood loss.

The widower spent the following days holding and reading to his newborn daughter Juliet, but she died only five days later due to taking in too much blood at birth.

Police Investigating If Prince Died From Fatal Mix Of Drugs — Who Could Be To Blame?

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad Sad

Prince

Not long after Prince's passing was confirmed last month, it was revealed that the Purple Rain singer reportedly struggled with an almost decade long addiction to Percocet.

According to TMZ, police are investigating a possible fatal mix of drugs as the music icon's cause of death.

Although toxicology results have not yet been revealed, authorities have interest to see if the artist had a combination of Percocet and Buprenorphine in his system.

This could potentially explain why Prince's doctor Michael Schulenberg and the son of California rehab Dr. Howard Kornfeld, Andrew Kornfeld, were both present when the 57-year-old passed.

Schulenberg says he went to Prince's home to hand deliver test results, while Kornfeld says he was there to deliver Buprenorphine pills — which are used to treat opiate addiction — to the singer's local doctor. Hmm… Coincidence?

The outlet reports that medical experts say combining Percocet and Buprenorphine can be deadly as both drugs suppress breathing and can create a "dangerous synergistic effect."

If results show both drugs in the singer's system, both doctors will be questioned again to get to the bottom of who should be held responsible.

We'll let you know as soon as a toxicology report becomes available.

James Gandolfini

We can't believe it's been nearly three years since the great James Gandolfini died of a heart attack at the age of 51 while on a trip to Italy with his son.

You may recall reports that claimed the Sopranos star's pricey Rolex watch was stolen from his hotel room during the time of his death.

Well now, a paramedic who treated Gandolfini at the scene is facing trial for allegedly swiping the $3,000 time piece from the actor. It is unclear if the watch was taken from Gandolfini's hotel room or from his wrist after he collapsed.

How terrible!!!

According to NBC News, attending paramedic Claudio Bevilacqua, 43, was not present for his first day on trial on Monday. The judge has postponed the case until November.

We can't believe someone would steal in the midst of such a terrible tragedy!

We'll keep you updated as the case progresses.
