Philip Seymour Hoffman Overdose Death Typical Consequnce of Hollywood Pandering To Stars

Philip Seymour Hoffman Overdose Death Typical Consequnce of Hollywood Pandering To Stars

Start with a bit of depression. Add a little narcissism. Whatever you do, don’t forget an extra dose of insecurities.  Throw in an unhealthy amount of readily available money, sex and drugs, preceded by lots of pressure and anxiety. There you have it. This recipe, my friends, is the recipe for disaster, and unfortunately for celebrities, this cocktail of death is served up too frequently. The question remains, how are loved ones missing the window of opportunity to help these stars?

Sure, in an episode of Intervention, you see a struggling family attempting to get a loved one to rehab as they fight the idea tooth and nail. But this is celebrities we are talking about. They have the money for rehab, and they certainly have a team of hangers-on that should have their best interest in mind, and many even have relationships or husbands or wives. So how are these celebrities falling through the cracks and losing their lives to drugs when it seems so easy to force them to get help. One leak to the media about drug abuse, and almost always a celebrity is already one foot in the door at the closest rehab center.  So are the celebrity’s friends and loved ones turning a blind eye to their drug abuse? Are they surrounding themselves with losers who use as well? It seems to me these celebrities need someone who loves them and knows them to step in and do whatever it takes to get them help. Look at the many talented actors we’ve lost recently due to the killer that is heroin and/or other drugs.

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Inheritance Fight Is Over – Cissy Houston Folds Her Cards

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Inheritance Fight Is Over – Cissy Houston Folds Her Cards

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of recently deceased Whitney Houston, will receive her inheritance as planned. A few weeks ago, we reported right here on Hollywood Hiccups that Cissy Houston, Bobbi’s grandma, attempted to stop Bobbi from inheriting the estimated $20 million. Cissy and Pat Houston, co-executors of Whitney’s estate, filed legal papers to alter Bobbi’s inheritance, citing that it was “too much, too soon.”

Unfortunately for Cissy and Pat, Bobbi will receive her $20 million inheritance in three separate installments. She will receive 10% of that money the day she turns 21 – that’s an estimated $2 million. She will then receive 20% the day she turns 25 – that’s an estimated $4 million. The remainder of the money will be paid over into Bobbi’s account when she turns 30, an estimated $16 million. According to TMZ, “[T]he case has been dismissed after Bobbi and Cissy reached an agreement. Whitney’s original plan for the payout was virtually unchanged.”

Whilst the battle for the inheritance payout was discussed, Cissy and Pat cited that Bobbi “is a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent’s resources and celebrity.” They were also terrified that Bobbi’s inheritance would take her down the same road as her mother – addicted to alcohol and drugs. Last week, Cissy and Pat appeared on “The View” to discuss their new Lifetime reality television show “The Houstons: On Our Own”. During this interview, Cissy explained to Barbara Walters and Sheri Shepherd that Bobbi’s discipline is a work in progress. “She’s not in trouble as it relates to drinking. I had concern sitting there watching her. I don’t like it at all. But this was her reality, even before her mother passed. I don’t like it, but we’re working on it. She’s growing…we’re seeing her more; we’re dealing with life management skills as it relates to Bobbi Kristina.

We’re pleased to hear that Bobbi’s inheritance issues have been sorted out. We’d like to hear your thoughts on the matter, so let us know in the comments below what you think of Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance. Is it too much, too soon?

Britney Spears Attends Whitney Houston’s Tribute Event: ‘I Admired Her’

Britney Spears has gushed about how much she admired the late Whitney Houston, who passed away in February, at a tribute event held for the singer earlier this week. Britney who had been in talks to perform at the event but later on bailed out, recalled the day she was fortunate enough to meet the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer, saying she was so excited before adding that the meaning of her songs could be felt through the radio.

The X Factor judge told Access Hollywood: “I did actually at the World Music Awards in Monaco. I was maybe 17 years old. I just remember being so excited! I was just like, ‘Oh my God it’s Whitney Houston, oh God!’ I was really excited. I just felt her voice alone said so much in every song she sang and through the radio you could feel her emotion and the type of person she is and what she’s gone through. She’s just someone to really admire.”

Britney was said to have collaborated with Black Eyed Peas frontman on an untitled single which the singer will debut during the live shows of X Factor next month. When being questioned if the rumors were true that the two had been in the studio together.

Spears confirmed it, saying: “It’s coming out soon. You just have to hear it – he’s just like a radical genius scientist [in the studio]. Just to be able to do a song with him is really fun.”
