One of the first celebrity deaths of the year was that of Jon Paul Steuer.

The child actor known for his work in Little Giants, Grace Under Fire, and Star Trek: The Next Generation (above) passed away all the way back on January 1.

The news was broken by his bandmates in the punk rock group P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. just two days later, but the cause of the 33-year-old's death was unknown.

Now, just a week after the shocking losses of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, we're finding out Steuer too was lost to suicide.

According to a new report from The Blast, officials revealed the cause of death was "self-inflicted gunshot wound." So sad.

Such a tough year already…

George Takei's 'Sexual Assault' Accuser Walks Back His Story! See George's 'Grateful' Response!

no title

Has George Takei been exonerated??

Back in November, fans of the socially progressive Star Trek star were shocked to hear a new accusation of drugging and groping a male model named Scott Brunton back in 1981.

For many, that surprise was simply folded into the broader narrative that many men we looked up to were turning out to be predators behind closed doors.

Well, that wasn't good enough for reporter Shane Snow, who had a book coming out in which he had profiled Takei's charity work against homophobia and racism. Needing to know if Takei deserved to have the honor stripped away, Snow did some digging into the story.

After he noticed several discrepancies in Brunton's various interviews, he even got a chance to question the alleged victim for himself.

Here's a brief summary of what he found and posted in a lengthy investigation in the Observer:

Hopefully this will give them some closure…

As we reported in June 2016, Anton Yelchin died from blunt traumatic asphyxia after he was pinned against a security gate with his own Jeep Grand Cherokee.

According to authorities, the Star Trek actor thought his car was parked when it was actually in neutral, as it rolled down his driveway and struck him. Although a recall notice went out on May 14, 2016 addressing the aforementioned problem, Yelchin had not gotten his car fixed yet.

On Tuesday, per TMZ, the thespian's family settled their lawsuit with auto company Fiat Chrysler, though the details are confidential.

Months after the tragedy, the dealership said the accident was caused by Anton's "misuse, misapplication or damage" of the vehicle.

Heath Ledger Wasn't The Only Actor To Die Tragically Young…

Filed under: Brittany MurphyR.I.P.Heath LedgerSad Sad

Hollywood is no stranger to tragedy.

As we reported, it's been 10 years since the entertainment industry was rocked by the devastating death of Heath Ledger.

The Dark Knight star was found dead on January 22, 2008 at just 28 years old — but the Oscar-winner isn't the only actor to lose his life at a terribly young age.

Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin was just 27 when he died in a freak accident involving his Jeep Cherokee in June 2016. And as for the late great Brittany Murphy, we still get teared up thinking about her untimely demise at the age of 32.

R.I.P. to all! Pay your respects to these actors who tragically died too young…

George Takei has denounced a groping joke he previously made on Howard Stern's radio show.

As we previously reported, the Star Trek alum was recently accused of sexually assaulting former model and actor Scott R. Brunton in the '80s. While Takei fiercely denied the accusation, an interview with Stern has since resurfaced, which featured him joking about touching men.

George Takei Denies All Sexual Assault Allegations, But Does A Howard Stern Interview Prove He's Lying?!

no title

Even though George Takei may have strongly denied all sexual assault allegations against him on Twitter earlier yesterday, the longtime actor and Star Trek star can't get the heat off him yet, and a recent Howard Stern interview may be the reason why.

In a clip that has re-surfaced from a few weeks ago, in which Stern and Takei are discussing the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the actor seems to admit committing acts that could reasonably be seen as sexual assault.
