Autopsy Confirms Massive Overdose for Philip Seymour Hoffman

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies Of Drug Overdose In NYC **FILE PHOTOS**

According to the NYC medical examiner, Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s official cause of death on February 2nd, was “acute mixed drug intoxication.’  TMZ reports that the drugs found in Hoffman’s system at the time of death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines.

The much beloved Hunger Games actor, was found dead in his apartment with a needle still stuck in his arm.  He had attended rehab last May in order to prevent a major relapse (he had been sober for over 20 years prior to his death).  He had three children, ages 5, 7, and 10, with his longtime, estranged girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell.

Four arrests were made related to Hoffman’s overdose, including Robert Vineberg, who was charged with felony heroin possession with an intent to sell.  Vineberg is a sax player for multiple famous artists including Mick Jagger, Amy Winehouse and David Bowie.

So sad.  Addiction is so sad and drugs are so scary.

Amy Winehouse’s Mother Didn’t Think She’d Live To See 30

Amy Winehouse's Mother Didn't Think She'd Live To See 30

Amy Winehouse’s mother Janis said that she didn’t think that the singer would ever make it to the age of 30-years-old.

Amy would have turned 30-years-old this year on September 14th, but two years after her death, her mother is speaking out about the late singer.

Janis revealed in a new interview, “When I think Amy would have been 30 this year, it doesn’t feel right. I’m not saying I always foresaw this but I wasn’t surprised.”

As you may recall, Amy passed away from alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011 at the young age of only 27-years-old. Unfortunately, she had a long history of abusing drugs and alcohol prior to her untimely death.

Janis added, “I couldn’t see Amy as an older person. She was this young girl who exploded into the world like a firecracker and then it was, ‘OK, I’m done — I’m off’. Amy was never meant to be 30.”

So sad. RIP Amy.

New Questions Surface In Amy Winehouse’s Death

According to London officials,  Amy Winehouse may not have died from alcohol poisoning!

The London Police department is launching a new inquest into the singer’s death, as questions are surfacing about Winehouse’s autopsy.  Authorities are looking into the practices of the coroner who oversaw Winehouse’s autopsy when she died back in July 2011, and are saying that said coroner did NOT have the proper prerequisites when she concluded the singer died from accidental alcohol poisoning.

According to local reports, Assistant Deputy Suzanne Greenaway had been appointed to the job by her husband in 2009, despite the fact she did not have the required 5 years experience with the London Law Society.  To add on to the suspicious nature of this situation, Greenaway’s husband just resigned from his role as the coroner for inner north London earlier this month in the wake of this scandal.

Winehouse’s family are not interested in revisiting the past, reports say.  If there IS a new autopsy, I can only imagine how horrific and painful it would be for the famous singer’s family.  So sad.

Blake Fielder-Civil Is In A Coma

Blake Fielder-Civil, Amy Winehouse‘s ex husband, is fighting for his life after a drug binge on Friday.

Fielder-Civil, 30, was found choking in bed by his girlfriend Sarah Aspin last Friday. He was  rushed to hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and was diagnosed with multiple organ failure. Fielder-Civil is a recovering drug addict, so obviously it was a great idea for him to have gone out drinking with his girlfriend and friends.   

Aspin, 34, is the mother of Blake’s 15-month-old son, Jack.  When Blake came home,  Fielder-Civil had swallowed his tongue and was choked on his own vomit.  Apsin immediately called the paramedics, and believes Blake took an illicit substance.  Says Aspin: 

‘The doctors say they don’t know the prognosis. They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection….They let me in to hold his hand after 45 minutes. I found out later that they did that because they thought he was going to die.”

The two were talking marriage just a week before.

This is so sad. Addiction is such a terrible thing.  Our thoughts go out to the family of Blake Fielder-Civil.

Amy Winehouse toxicology reports are in!

According to Amy Winehouse’s family, the singer had no illegal drugs in her system when she died, and it is still unclear what killed the singer.

The Winehouse family said in a statement that they’ve seen the toxicology reports, and admit “alcohol was present”, but it has yet to be determined if that’s what contributed to her death.

The 27-year-old soul diva, who had battled drug and alcohol addiction for years, was found dead in her London home on July 23, and an initial post-mortem failed to determine the cause of death.

A statement released by spokesman Chris Goodman on the family’s behalf said “toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death.”

It said the family awaited the outcome of an inquest that is due to begin in October.

RELATED: Amy Winehouse was planning on adopting

Winehouse’s father, Mitch, has said his daughter had beaten her drug dependency three years before her death, but he admitted she was still struggling to control her drinking after several weeks of abstinence.

Mitch Winehouse told mourners at the singer’s July 26 funeral that she had said to him, “`Dad I’ve had enough of drinking, I can’t stand the look on your and the family’s faces anymore.’”

The Winehouse family announced plans to establish a charitable foundation in the singer’s name to help people struggling with addiction – although Mitch Winehouse has said the plans are on hold because someone else had registered the name Amy Winehouse Foundation.
