Actor Ray Barrett passed away after he suffered a fall in his home in Queensland. The Australian actor became famous in the 80s and was recently part of the big budget movie, Australia. Our condolences to the family.
I know they’re all rich and famous, but is that an excuse to be late for their brother’s/son’s funeral? According to TMZ, which has been live blogging the event, the Jackson family was late for the funeral. Despite the nice fleet of Rolls Royce Phantoms that they got for themselves, they couldn’t manage to come on time. Tsk, tsk.
DJ AM was brought to his final resting place yesterday at the Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary at 3 PM. There will be a service held for him tonight at the Hollywood Palladium.
Michael Jackson is going to be buried today – finally. A rep from singer Gladys Knight’s camp has confirmed that she will be singing at the burial. You may not know it but the two singers knew each other when they were young. The burial will be held at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA.
The death of DJ AM has rocked the celebrity world yet again, and much like the Michael Jackson case, it seems that pain medication plays a huge role. According to Dr. Drew Pinsky, an addiction specialist, the pain medication that was prescribed to DJ AM after his plan accident last year might be the cause of his sliding back to old habits. The doctor is not pointing any fingers but is raising the point that this kind of medication slowly and subtly reawakens past desires linked to drug use.
