Confirmed: Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose

Confirmed: Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose

It was just as everyone expected when we all heard the news of Peaches Geldof’s untimely passing. The coroner’s report has come back and it has been confirmed that she passed as the result of a heroin overdose.

Prior to her death, she had been taking methadone for two years. During that time, she was trying to reduce her dependency on that drug. She was found with a pair of tights underneath her body along with heroin in a black bag in a spare bedroom.

The coroner noted that he found a high concentration of heroin in her body. He noted that heroin users “develop a tolerance to the drug, and such individuals can use doses that would be toxic, or fatal, to people with no tolerance.”

To that, he added that tolerance “appears to be lost fairly rapidly when users cease to use the drug, and deaths commonly occur in people who have previously been tolerant and have returned to using heroin.”

The coroner’s report concluded, “There is no indication that any other third party was present or involved in her death and there is no indication that Peaches intended to take her own life or harm herself in any way as she was reported to be of happy disposition and planning for the future with friends and family.”

So sad :(

RIP James Garner – Dead at 86

RIP James Garner - Dead at 86

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of legendary actor James Garner. He played many roles, but rose to prominence in “The Rockford Files”, “Maverick” and “The Notebook”.

He was pronounced dead at 86-years-old and passed away from natural causes. Law enforcement sources say that an ambulance was called to his home in Los Angeles on Saturday night at around 8PM PST, but he was found dead upon their arrival.

It’s really sad to see him go, he was one of the great actors of our time. Even if you only knew him from “The Notebook” or went further back to his time on “The Rockford Files”, he was fantastic in his ability to take on a role.

His contributions to the entertainment industry will live on forever. We’re sad to see him go. Leave your best memories of his acting in the comments section below.

Peaches Geldof’s Funeral To Be Held Monday

Peaches Geldof's Funeral To Be Held Monday

British socialite and journalist Peaches Geldof passed away on April 7th, but her family is having her funeral this coming Monday.

The family of Peaches Geldof said Friday that her funeral will take place on Easter Monday at the same church where her mother’s funeral was held back in 2000.

The church in Kent in southern England is also where Geldof married her second husband, musician Tom Cohen, and where her mother, Paula Yates, married Irish musician Bob Geldof in 1986.

Peaches Geldof, a 25-year-old model, television show host and writer, died on April 7 at her home in southeastern England. Police in Kent said a post-mortem examination did not reveal the cause, and a toxicology report could take several weeks.

Her family said Friday the funeral will be private.

Police have said they are treating the case as an “unexplained sudden death” and are not treating it as suspicious.

So sad. May she rest in peace.

Michael Jackson’s kids don’t want to live with Debbie Rowe

FFN_Jackson_Kids_EXC_FF1_FF3_020412_8715633

Debbie Rowe may have given birth to Michael Jackson‘s children, but she’s never been a parent to them, so there’s no reason for her to start now, right? Well, except that she claims their home is too chaotic for them and wants to put a custody petition forward for Paris, Prince and Blanket – something Prince is not very happy about.

“Prince is absolutely disgusted by Debbie’s plans to go to court to try and gain custody of himself, Paris and Blanket,” a Jackson family source told Radar.

“First, Debbie wasn’t around for years, and Prince doesn’t consider her his mother. As far as Prince in concerned, Debbie was basically a surrogate mother. Second, Debbie wants the kids to come live with her in Palmdale. Prince is a junior in high school in Southern California, and will be turning eighteen next February. Uprooting his entire life and moving to Palmdale would jeopardize all of the hard work and progress he has made in school. Debbie thinks Prince doesn’t have enough supervision, and is out of control….yet, Prince has a 4.2 GPA and is on track to graduate with honors.

The source told Radar that Prince will have the law on his side in this situation.

“Thankfully, in California, there is tremendous consideration given to teenagers in custody cases, and they can usually determine which parent or guardian they would like to live with,” the source told Radar.

“The Jackson children have a court appointed attorney, a guardian ad litem, Margaret Lodise. Prince will be speaking with her and telling her in no uncertain terms would he want to move in with Debbie. This is all very disruptive to his life, and is truly the last thing he needs.”

I think that sounds pretty fair. After all, the kids have zero relationship with Debbie, so why on earth would they want to be uprooted from everything they know (even moreso than losing their father did to them) to go live with her? Sure, the Jackson family has had its share of drama, but EVERY family does, and unless they feel their lives are in danger or they can’t cope, I think the court should listen to them.
