Casey Johnson, an heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, has died at the young age of 30. A law enforcement source say Johnson had been dead for several days before her body was discovered. She died in L.A. We’re told the body was discovered this morning. She was 30 years old. Her father is Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets and the Johnson & Johnson Empire.
Johnson was reportedly engaged to Tila Tequila. We spoke with Tila a few minutes ago. She says they were fighting last week and that Casey stayed at Tila’s house on the 28th. Tila tried contacting Casey on the 29th because Casey had left her dogs behind. Tila says Casey’s phone has been shut off since the 29th and she was not able to make contact.
Johnson, who tweeted frequently, last tweeted on December 29 at 1:13 AM.
The Firm reunion concert, with AZ and Foxy Brown, was canceled at the last minute Thursday (December 10) night in New York City.
According to reports, a dispute took place between AZ and the event promoter.
Fans waited on line yesterday for hours to catch the show to no avail. Yet the concert was canceled after there was a dispute between the rap vet and the promoter of the show. XXLMag.com spoke to Larry Gold, a publicist at the venue, who assures ticket holders that they will be reimbursed. “95-99 percent of our shows we are dealing directly dealing with either the agent or manager,” Gold explained. “And this is one of those shows that went through a middle party. So other than we are reaching out to the promoter today to find out really what happened. Sadly to say we are really in the dark.” (XXL Mag)
ThrowBack: AZ & Nas’ “Mo’ Money Mo’ Murder”
Serena Williams’ infamous U.S. Open rant where she cussed at a lineswoman is set to cost her a record amount of money. U.S. Open officials concluded that Serena violated the “major offense rule” for “aggravated behavior” and will have to pay $82,500.
Grand Slam administrator Bill Babcock told The Associated Press Monday that Serena Williams will pay the fine and could be suspended from the tournament if she has another “major offense” at any Grand Slam in the next two years.
Babcock also told the AP that Williams faces a “probationary period” at tennis’ four major championships in 2010 and 2011. If she has another “major offense” at a Grand Slam tournament in that time, the fine would increase to $175,000 and she would be barred from the following U.S. Open.
I’m sure this recent fine is a small thing to a giant like Serena. She earned $350,000 at the semifinals before the incident which she added to the $6.5 million in prize money she earned this year. All together, her career prize money tops $28 million.
Out of the blue, Courtney Love posted a bizarre truth about Britney Spears on her Facebook. The widow of Kurt Cobain claimed that Britney was molested by her own father Jamie while she was a child struggling to be a pop star. “Britney’s dad molested her,” Courtney wrote in the message filled with typo errors and misspelling. “Imagine – the father that molested you owning you for slavery while you’re forced to sing songs picked for their sexual content – every night, insane, right? I have it on first-hand authority. And fight as hard as she is, she still didn’t pull that card. It’s a pride thing I can relate to.”
She added the part where she said she is ready to face legal matters as the consequences of her statement. “They want to play dirty? let’s go! I’m SO not afraid of the little trolls who hit this…who are called lawyers. let’s GO!!”
There is no response yet from Britney’s camp, but they also didn’t make comment when Courtney first took a jab at her. On November 14, Courtney spread a hate message, writing “Just for YOUR amusement; BRITNEY SPEARS! whataa C***, right? LINDSEY LOHAN? wh**e douchebag, RIGHT? Paris HILTON? airhead wh**e, RIGHT? MICHEAL JACKSON<<<<< what a peadophile evil c**t right? yeah /// dude…!”
She was a gorgeous blonde prostitute-turned-reality star. Now Brooke Phillips is dead from a gunshot wound; discovered pregnant and burned almost beyond recognition in an Oklahoma City house. Brooke hit the hooker big time when as a prostitute at Nevada’s legal brothel, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, she was featured on the HBO reality show, Cathouse.
“Brooke contacted me two years ago,” Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof said in an interview. It was her dream to come work here and be on HBO’s Cathouse. She got to fulfill those wishes.”
Brooke was one of four victims who were killed. Another victim, Millie Barrera, was also pregnant, bringing the deceased total to six.
Brooke told Hof one month ago that she was pregnant.
She was really excited about it,” he said.
“We talked about her taking time off for the pregnancy and to have the baby, and then coming back to work. We never discussed who the father was. Brooke didn’t seem to care. This was her baby and she was thrilled about it.”
Reality shows and murder are unfortunately going hand-in-hand lately. Former reality star Brian Lee Randone is accused of killing adult film star Felicia Tang; and swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore was brutally murdered by reality show contestant Ryan Jenkins who later killed himself.
Mariah Carey has opened up about the “mental” and “emotional” abuse she suffered during her marriage to music mogul Tommy Mottola in an explosive new TV interview. Promoting new film Precious, in which she plays a social worker trying to help an abused teenager, the pop star told CNN anchorman Larry King she’s no stranger to abuse.
Asked for her thoughts about Chris Brown’s attack on Rihanna in February (09) during a taped interview with King, which airs on Wednesday night (04Nov09), Carey told the host, “I was very sequestered, as you know, when I first started out and if I were just allowed to be young and with a young boyfriend who’s also a star… I don’t know what goes on.
“I wasn’t really allowed out of the house, so I can’t imagine what she went through.”
Asked if anyone had ever abused her, Mariah said, “Abuse has several categories… emotionally, mentally, in other ways.”
She refused to go into details, but told King she sympathised with women who struggle to break free from abusive relationships: “It’s scary. I just think you get into a situation and you feel locked in. If your situation is similar to one of the situations I’ve been in, which I won’t harp on… For me, to really get out of it was difficult because there was a connection that was not only a marriage, but a business where the person was in control of my life.”
Carey was married to Mottola from 1993 to 1998.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta threw a Halloween party on Friday night and Kim Zolciak decided to terrorize the audience with a live performance of Tardy For the Party. Obviously, Kim was singing over a track since it’s sort of in tune (SORT OF). If she used her real voice, a pack of wild coyotes would’ve busted through the club thinking one of their young was in danger. Don’t get me wrong, it will still leave your ears wanting to dial 911.
And Kim needs to sit down during her “performances,” because she dances like a bowlegged granny who recently had hip replacement surgery (no offense to bowlegged grannies who recently had hip replacement surgery).
Kim (as a slutty Alice in Wonderland), Sheree (as Hercules), Kandi (as a disco something-or-another) and Lisa Wu (as Dwight).
