LOS ANGELES (AP) — Philip Seymour Hoffman suffered from a chronic medical condition that required ongoing treatment. An admitted drug addict who first sought professional help more than two decades ago, Hoffman apparently succumbed to his illness with an overdose despite a return to rehab last March. A father of three with a thriving career, the Oscar winner died Sunday with a needle in his arm and baggies of what appeared to be heroin nearby. New York City medical examiners were conducting an autopsy on Hoffman’s body Monday as investigators scrutinize evidence found in his apartment, including at least four dozen plastic packets, some confirmed to have contained heroin.

His death, which came after a long period of sobriety that ended last year, “epitomizes the tragedy of drug addiction in our society,” said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

AS MORE details surface on the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tattle’s probably not going to be too funny today.

Hoffman’s essential problem? He could portray “The Master” in a movie but he couldn’t master his drug addiction in real life. It was an addiction for which he first sought treatment more than two decades ago.

Monsters & Critics / Dr. Damon Raskin Ke$ha is Dealing with her Issues Correctly, says Weight Loss Expert January 23, 2014

Singer Ke$ha has checked in to Timberline Knolls rehab center near Chicago for issues with her weight.

TMZ reports that this is also the same place Demi Lovato went for her issues. Ke$ha reportedly is blaming producer Dr. Luke — claiming he called her a fat refrigerator. TMZ sources directly connected to Ke$ha told the website that Dr. Luke slammed the singer over the weight she had gained in her downtime post tour. Ke$ha says Luke — a huge producer who has worked with Miley Cyrus and Rihanna — began calling Ke$ha fat and urged her management team to do something about it.

Yahoo! Sports / Dr. Constantino Mendieta Yahoo! Sports January 23, 2014

Nya Lee, supporting cast member of Love & Hip Hop NY, opened up recently about getting butt injections and revealed that instead of going to a high calibre surgeon, she chose instead, to go to a back alley “technician” who used non-FDA approved materials injected in her rear end.

Not surprisingly, she doesn’t encourage other to follow her lead.

And leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. C. Mendieta concurs, strongly suggesting that no one should ever used these back door quacks as the horror stories of young women, aspiring models and mothers who lose their limbs or their lives by going underground for a cosmetic procedure continue to grow.
