After two years, prosecutors and police in Minnesota have wrapped up their investigation into Prince’s death, declaring that the late pop star unknowingly took fentanyl he thought was Vicodin and that no criminal charges will be brought in relation to his accidental overdose.
Carver County Attorney Mark Metz said at a press conference announcing his findings that neither Prince nor anyone close to him knew that Prince was taking fentanyl and not Vicodin. They were also unable to determine where he got the counterfeit pills, and so without a suspect or a motive, there’s no criminal charges to bring.
I thought it was weird that people were selling fentanyl as Vicodin, so I did a little digging into why. I had assumed that because fentanyl was so much stronger than opiods, it would be more expensive, but that turns out to not be the case. Fentanyl is much cheaper to produce than opiods, and because it’s so much stronger, you can use much less of it. So the reason it’s been cut into heroin and sold as Vicodin on the black market is that it turns out drug dealers are somewhat unethical. Who would have thought, right?
Today also saw Minnesota doctor Michael Todd Schulenberg agree to pay a $30,000 fine for improperly prescribing oxycodone to Prince under the name of friend the singer’s friend Kirk Johnson. According to Time, Schulenberg’s attorney gave a statement maintaining his innocence.
“After he learned of Prince’s addiction, he immediately worked to refer Prince to a treatment facility and to transfer care to a chemical dependency specialist,” Conners said.
She said Schulenberg decided to settle to avoid the expense, delay, and unknown outcome of litigation, and that “he made no admission of facts nor liability and denies any such liability.”
I want to end this story as I do every story about the ongoing opioid crisis by mentioning that no one in the history of the world has died from a cannabis overdose. Prince suffered from chronic pain and the treatment of that pain, under the care of doctors, led to him becoming addicted to opioids which in turn lead to his death by overdose. In a sane world where marijuana is legal, Prince could have safely used it to treat his chronic pain. But while a doctor can prescribe any number of opiates for pain in Minnesota, they can’t prescribe or even recommend pot. If you’re looking for someone to blame for Prince’s death, blame the people who started and continue to wage America’s insane war on drugs.

If I die, IF, I die accidentally, please don’t film it. Or at least call police before hitting record.
Some couple overdosed and slumped in their car when a nice man passed by and immediately thought, WORLD STAH! Get me some clicks!
This took place in Boston, Massachusetts.
It involves one anonymous lady and her male friend, Dan. We know his name because she keeps saying his name while trying to wake him up. We’ll get to that later.
Scene one, act one, opens with the couple passed out in their car. A couple of onlookers debate what to do. “They dead, man!” one implores while asking the others to wake them up.
Their shouting wakes the woman up who’s sitting in the passenger seat. She looks at Dan who’s head is slumped over. Like I said, od’ing.
To her credit, the lady friend tries to give Dan CPR. To her non-credit, she does it by reclining Dan’s seat back 45 degrees and straddling him. Half-CPR, half porno. A few chest rubs later and Dan comes to, albeit still groggy and out of it.
Paramedics arrive and I assume the couple told them, “Nothing to see here!” and drove away quickly.
Police Arrest Two Papa John’s Employees For Selling Drugs To Customers Who Asked For ‘Extra Olives’!
Better ingredients. Better meth.
Washington Police arrested five people on Friday after undercover detectives busted employees for selling cocaine and other drugs out of a Papa John's Pizza.
According to local news affiliate KIRO-7, authorities in Sammamish, a neighboring Seattle city, received a tip that employees were selling drugs out of the restaurant parking lot, which launched a six month investigation cops dubbed "Operation Extra Olives."
This code name arose from the passcode the detectives -- posing as customers -- would ask to get some kind of drugs from employees.
Each time they ordered a pizza at the Papa John's location, officials asked employees to "give it extra olives," and promptly received a pizza box full of cocaine!
Kings' County Sgt. Cindi West explained:
"What the detectives would do is they'd order pizza and go out and wait in the parking lot. The employee would bring the pizza out and in the box would be the cocaine."
Detectives were able to buy drugs from two different employees -- one of which introduced them to other local drug dealers in the Sammamish and nearby Bellevue.
Multiple law enforcement agencies conducted search and arrest warrants on Friday morning at the location, where they found employees had stashed drugs in the cash register, sinks, and soap dispensers.
Officials recovered about $28,000 in cash, along with stocks of cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, meth, acid, and Oxycodone.
In addition to arresting the two Papa John's employees, police made three additional arrests on Friday. One of the busts took place in a crowded Bellevue house, where a 21-year-old and 26-year-old were taken into custody.
Officers then went to two other homes in Sammamish where they arrested a 19-year-old man and an 18-year-old man. Another 18-year-old man turned himself in later in the day.
The popular restaurant chain revealed the two arrested employees are no longer with the company, and said the only delivery they condone is that of a delicious, handmade pizza -- saying in a statement:
"Papa John's has zero tolerance for this type of offensive and illegal behavior. The franchisee has confirmed that the employees involved with this situation are no longer employed and we apologize for their actions. The franchisee is working in full cooperation with local law enforcement to resolve this matter. Furthermore, food safety and sanitation is of the utmost importance to Papa John's. The franchisee took immediate action steps, with Health Department oversight, and the location was cleared to reopen."
It looks like Operation Extra Olives has come to a delicious close.

Who the fuck rolled this and can I apprentice with them?
Jeff Stolowitz was walking around Daytona Beach cleaning up after it was trashed by frat bros on spring break when he came across a ten-pound package of weed wrapped in brown paper like a giant blunt.
Instead of smoking that shit he called the cops.
The weed did have some blood in it, which is kind of weird.
According to Volusia County Beach Safety Captain Mike Berard, whoever wrapped it up likely dipped it in blood to throw off drug-sniffing dogs. It was covered in so many barnacles that experts think it had been rolling around in the ocean for at least two weeks. Berard told the Orlando Sentinel:
“This actually happens more than you think. Whenever we get these big surfs, all types of stuff washes up on shore.”
Time to move to Daytona Beach and keep my eyes peeled for bloody ocean blunts.
Fun fact: People keep giving their racehorses meth to make them run faster. Looks like meth isn’t just for critically acclaimed TV Shows and the kind of people that have been waiting on coal mining to come back to their shitty town for fifty years anymore.
After placing second in the Toowoomba race in Queensland, Australia Party Till Dawn was tested for meth and trainer Ben Currie is in some trouble. Currie is due before the horse racing people, who already fined him $6K for giving another horse illegal synthetic growth hormones.
This is more common than you think. Last year, another horse in Australia tested positive for meth, and at one racetrack in Texas alone, five winning horses were disqualified in three months due to meth in 2016.
Can this year please calm down?
Everyone is heartbroken over Prince‘s untimely passing.
The incredible artist’s former fiancée Sheila E had already shared her grief over the loss of the late musician, but now she says she knows more about how her ex was found on Thursday.
The drummer revealed to Access Hollywood that she knows who discovered the powerful performer as well as other details about that devastating day.
However, she would rather focus on celebrating the soulful singer’s life instead of dissecting the details of his final moments, saying:
“We pretty much know what’s going on. All we want to do is just talk about the man, the musician and why people loved him so much was because of his music not because of his personal life. We loved him because of what he’s written and done for the world.”
Even though Prince’s protégée is staying silent about his tragic discovery, we do know from 911 calls that the icon was already unresponsive when authorities arrived, and that the mystery caller was a man.
However, Sheila explains she didn’t see any recent signs that the 57-year-old had been using drugs lately:
“No, not at all.”

A 2600-foot long tunnel used to smuggle drugs was discovered by the Feds recently in an area south of San Diego. This massive tunnel, which led to the U.S.-Mexico border, had lighting, a ventilation system, and a rail system.
This discovery led to the arrest of 22 people and the confiscation of 12 tons ($6 million worth) of weed. Isaias Enriquez-Acosta, 53, and Isidro Silva-Acosta, 27, were charged on Thursday after the Wednesday night bust. They were charged with “unlawful conspiracy to import a controlled substance and conspiracy to use border tunnels and passages.”
I take that back. This is terrible news. Now the Feds are gonna get to blaze on all of these guys’ product for free while they rot in prison. Weak.
This tunnel is one of the largest ever discovered, though more than 75 smuggling tunnels have been found in states surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border since 2010. If this 2600-foot long tunnel isn’t even the biggest one ever found, I wonder just how big the biggest one was. We should just respect their dedication and let them do it up.
“The success of this investigation is yet another example of our commitment to secure the border while combating the increasingly dangerous underground smuggling activity.”
So says Dave Shaw, special agent in charge for ICE Homeland Security Investigations in San Diego. Cool, dude. If you want to combat weed, bust a music festival and leave these dudes just tryna do their best alone. Clearly they are geniuses ahead of their time. Let me see you covertly build a 2600-foot long tunnel with its own goddamn rail system, Dave from Homeland Security.

This is somehow both sad and frightening at the same time!
A woman has been accused of huffing cleaning supplies in public last week after shoppers at a Kansas Walmart noticed her getting high in the aisles.
Apparently, Melissa Ann Wright is now facing charges after she was caught on camera abusing the industrial cleaner Ultra Duster.
According to Tama Sawyer of the University of Kansas Poison Control Center, the effects of the computer cleaning supply is so strong, that it can cause your heart to be extra-sensitive to regular hormones like Adrenaline and actually kill you.
But that's not even the worst part, because the chemical also causes frostbite to the skin on contact!
Melissa clearly endured damage to the skin on her face after huffing the cleaner, but refused medical attention at the scene.
Hopefully these charges can lead to Melissa getting the help she needs.

Toby Sheldon -- also known as Tobias Shrebel -- was reported missing on August 18. We're now learning that he was found dead on August 21.
The 35-year-old had been in the spotlight for his appearances on shows like Botched and My Strange Addiction because he had spent over $100 thousand on a series of surgeries to look like superstar Justin Bieber.
Police said his body was discovered in a Motel 6 in the San Fernando Valley in California. Authorities said they found drugs in the room where he was staying, but haven't yet determined a cause of death.
Back when Toby went missing, officials suggested the aspiring singer disappeared because of a bad breakup.
Our hearts go out to Toby's friends, family, and loved ones during this terrible time.

Kim Richards Has Been Admitted To A Hospital By Family Members After Her Shoplifting Arrest Last Week
Hopefully things will straighten out for Kim Richards now.
We know her family had previously been considering admitting her for treatment, and now we have learned the reality star has been admitted to a hospital by "concerned family members," according to reports.
Insiders reveal the reality star fell back into her old addiction habits after leaving rehab in July after just a MONTH -- and now, after her shoplifting arrest last week, she's been admitted for treatment. While Richards desperately wants to leave the facility, her fam is NOT having it.
No reports yet on where, or what sort of treatment, though we'll report more as soon as we know. As for now, at least we know Kim will receive the help that she needs.

Ah, the serene city of Mansfield, Ohio: the closed down GM Plant, the related rampant unemployment, the most confusing amount of hipsters at a downtown-I-guess coffee establishment named “Relax,” the drones that spark physical fights trying to drop drugs over their prisons.
Fun stuff, that last one is a development since my tenure in the city and I can tell you, I’m exactly zero percent surprised a mid-Ohio resident thought it would be a good idea to try and fly drugs into the clink for their prisoner friends; I watched someone try unsuccessfully to describe hummus to the residents less than a year ago.
The drone dropped a package including nearly a quarter ounce of heroin, over two ounces of marijuana, and a heaping five ounces of tobacco in what will now be known as a “Mansfield Flight Delight,” tell your local dealer.
Not surprisingly, when you drop slightly less than a cup of drugs into a prison it causes a fight. Also, not surprisingly, that very likely outcome did not cross the nice Mansfield drone pilot’s mind. I’m guessing they’ve seen the shot-in-Mansfield movie, Shawshank Redemption, and thought maybe they too could get away with a great prison caper.
It was determined that the drone package was meant for a prisoner having recess in the north yard, but it got thrown over the fence into the south yard. I’m assuming, in a shocking twist, some prisoner used his critical thinking skills to realize he’d probably be in trouble if he were found with a miracle of drugs that just obviously dropped from the sky. This throwing action really peeved off some prisoners and caused a little tiff between nine of those who were interested in having some of those drugs, additionally requiring backup corrections officers to break it up.
Slightly over 200 inmates between the two yards endured the joy of being strip-searched, run through a cell sensor, and checked by the clinic for any trace of the bounty. Those involved in the fighting got to spend some nice quiet time in solitary.
Oh, haphazard-thinking drone pilot, thanks for bringing me back to my time in the great city of Mansfield. I feel as though part of me is still sitting in Relax, urging others to not order a Dirty Mahoney, and hearing of this news through a local who has apparently confused the coffee line for a place to loudly speak of current events; you’re such a homey city, like the city equivalent of a Great Aunt. (Insider tip: the Dirty Mahoney is whatever the interesting creature that is Mahoney feels like making you for $5.00; sometimes that is a glass of milk, watch your back.) Ah Mansfield, come for the crippling depression, and coffee, stay for the drug dropping drones.

We can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child.
Victoria Siegel was found unresponsive in her home last month, before being rushed to Health Center Hospital in Florida. Sadly, she was pronounced dead while at the medical facility, because of what we now know was a drug overdose.
After releasing the results of her autopsy, which was conducted back in June, Queen of Versailles stars Jackie and David Siegel are speaking out about their daughter's untimely passing.
Her father reveals that the 18-year-old suffered from anxiety, saying:
"Victoria was the perfect storm. She had trouble getting through high school, she didn't like school, so she wasn't making good grades. She did graduate, but when she graduated, she didn't plan to go to college, at least not right away."
He explained that a therapist prescribed her some Xanax, which is how she ultimately developed a drug addiction. The autopsy showed that Victoria's death was the result of a lethal combination of pain and depression medication -- specifically methadone and sertraline.
Her parents say they believe it was cyberbullying that forced their daughter to turn to drugs that fateful day.
That weekend was her one-month anniversary with her boyfriend, a man who was eight years older than her and shared a daughter with his ex.
David and Jackie let Victoria stay home from a family trip to Utah so she could celebrate with him, since they were nervous she would relapse if they didn't.
The morning her body was found, her boyfriend's ex was paying him a visit, when she snatched his phone to text Victoria. David explains his daughter was being cyberbullied:
"Three hours later, the ex-girlfriend sent her a text that was the most vile, horrible thing any girl in love could receive."
Supposedly, the text said Victoria's boyfriend got together with his ex so they could sleep together, and that he was only with the wealthy teen because of her fortune.
Her father feels this horrible message is what pushed her to take pills that day:
"She wasn't depressed. She was very optimistic, and then the cyber text came and destroyed her. It was her first love. She was madly in love, and then the girl that sent it stabbed her in the heart."
In order to cope with losing their daughter so young, David and Jackie are talking about the tragedy to raise awareness about addiction.
They started Victoria's Voice Foundation in order to help other families and young people affected by drug abuse. David explained creating some good from this tough time is all he cares about:
"One hundred percent of my focus right now is on saving lives. Not on business, not on houses, not on reality shows. I want my daughter's legacy to be that thousands of lives will be saved because she lost hers. That's what's keeping us sane. We could have crawled into bed, pulled the covers over our head and been a basket case, but instead we embarked on this journey to help other people, to save other families from going through what we've gone through."
He feels that in today's society, addiction rates are higher because drugs are so easily introduced from such a young age:
"I was overactive when I was a kid. Fortunately, they didn't stick me on anything. But today, if a child is overactive, they stick them on Ritalin."
He's also calling for more education about addiction, so that children and teenagers can be aware of the dangers drugs pose, even those that are prescribed to them:
"Every school, every university or even high schools should have one course on drug addiction. The kids don't know what they're doing. They think that if a drug is prescribed by a doctor, it must be safe. They have no idea, these things, what they do, and we're way over-prescribing the drugs. But we've got to have courses in college, especially freshman year when they first come here. We've got to have random drug testing. That will save thousands of lives. Schools don't even know how to deal with this problem, so they look the other way. They pretend it doesn't exist, but it does."
He believes that addiction needs to be approached with as much care as any other illness, which is part of the reason why they started the foundation:
"It's a disease. If somebody gets cancer, you treat it. Well, if somebody starts doing drugs, you treat it. You can't just ignore it. It's not going to go away."
Jackie says working with Victoria's Voice is really the best way they can cope with their terrible loss:
"By doing this, it's given us some strength, knowing that we're going to save other lives and that Victoria didn't die in vain. That maybe death has a greater purpose."
While throwing themselves into raising this awareness has been helping them get through this rough time, David explains that there's no way to describe the amount of pain they feel:
"My only regret is I wish I'd spent more time with her. You don't think they're only going to be there for a short time. You think, 'Oh, there's always tomorrow.' Well, there isn't always tomorrow."
Our hearts go out to the entire Siegel family, as well as everyone affected by this terrible tragedy, and everyone out there who is struggling with addiction.

Bill Cosby Defends Himself From That Damning Deposition — Claims Quaaludes Were Part Of His ‘Consensual’ Sex Life
Bill Cosby wants to set the record straight!
On Tuesday, a motion filed by one of the TV legend's attorneys claimed that though he DID buy Quaaludes with intent of giving them to women he wanted to have intercourse with -- it does NOT mean he gave them without their consent.
Hmm, very inneresting!
A lawyer from Cosby's legal team stated:
"Quaaludes were a highly popular recreational drug in the 1970s, labeled in slang as ‘disco biscuits' and known for their capacity to increase sexual arousal.
There are countless tales of celebrities, music stars, and wealthy socialites in the 1970s willingly using Quaaludes for recreational purposes and during consensual sex."
Ok, we all saw Wolf of Wall Street -- but why would 40+ women claim Cosby assaulted them?!
The attorney continued:
"Yet upon the unsealing of those excerpts, the media immediately pounced, inaccurately labeling the released testimony as defendant's 'confession' of 'drugging' women and assaulting them.
Reading the media accounts, one would conclude the defendant has admitted to rape. And yet defendant admitted to nothing more than being one of the many people who introduced Quaaludes into their consensual sex life in the 1970s."
Yikes! The motion is in response to the recent deposition that was released on the request of Andrea Constand, the alleged victim that settle with the comedian out of court.
Miz Constand's attorney wrote:
"The release of these documents will assist other women who have been victimized and bring awareness to the fact that sexual assault is not just committed with a gun or knife but is also committed by mentors who engage in exploitative behaviors."
The unsealed deposition has been quite a headache for the funnyman. However, it appears the Cosby Camp is not willing to take the fight laying down.
His lawyer explained:
"The timing of plaintiff's July 8, 2015 motion reflects an attempt on her part to ride on the coattails of the barrage of inaccurate and negative media attention that followed this court's July 6, 2015 release of excerpts from the defendant's deposition.
Plaintiff should be denied further relief and instead should be sanctioned. The court should preserve what little benefit to defendant remains from the settlement agreement."
Those are certainly fighting words! It seems the drama for Cosby is nowhere close to being over.
What do U think of this plea from Cosby's legal team?! Do you buy it?

Colorado Almost Just Aired The First Ever Marijuana TV Commercial — But It Got Axed For THIS Reason!
Close, but no cigar! Or should we say blunt??
A local TV station in Colorado was all set to air a commercial for a marijuana product on Tuesday night, but it's just been pulled from their lineup because of legal issues.
The commercial, which was for a vape pen infused with cannabis oil, would've aired right before Jimmy Kimmel Live on Denver's ABC affiliate Tuesday evening.
Instead, the marketing company behind the spot, Cannabrand, was informed by the station that it wouldn't be running their commercial, according to a statement:
"...as ABC corporate investigates the legality of airing a 'federally illegal' substance on federal airwaves."
To their credit, Cannabrand is pretty open about the situation, also releasing a pretty optimistic take in their statement:
"We're interested to see how this all unfolds, as this is unchartered territory for the industry."
As it turns out, federal regulations involving advertisements for weed aren't that clear (who knew?!), while local laws require that marijuana commercials are only allowed to run if more than 70% of the audience involved is over 21 years old.
Unfortunately, no leaked versions of the commercial have been posted online yet, either. The shot up top is the only image of the commercial that's been released.
What do U think -- do U have a problem with marijuana commercials in places where it's legal?!
[Image via Cannabrand/NBC Denver.]
What we wouldn't pay to see this!
If you consider yourself an A$AP Rocky fan, then you're probably well aware of his 2013 song 1 Train off his debut album.
Well, even though it's been over two years since the track dropped, one celeb who's featured in a verse just heard the song for the first time and really appreciated the shout out!
Holy crap, that's amazing!
We already knew that Susan was a connoisseur of marijuana thanks to her role in Tammy, but this might just be the best thing she's ever said!
Although, the posse cut features a ton of rappers, including Kendrick Lamar, Joey Badass, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, and Big K.R.I.T., so she better bring a lot of weed!
What do U think that smoking session would be like??

An Unlikely Rivalry Is Brewing — Donald Trump Versus Prison Escapee And Legendary Mexican Drug Lord El Chapo Guzman?!
Now this is what Twitter was made for!
After Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman escaped from prison Saturday in south central Mexico, authorities started a nationwide manhunt for the notorious drug lord, shutting down airports and desperately searching for the kingpin.
In the meantime, Donald Trump was busy getting in on the action, calling out El Chapo with a particularly incendiary tweet:
The U.S. will invite El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord who just escaped prison, to become a U.S. citizen because our "leaders" can't say no!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 13, 2015
An alleged Twitter account belonging to El Chapo's son fought back though, tweeting (in Spanish) an NSFW expletive laden retort:
The (very rough) translation of Guzman Loera's tweet:
"Keep f***ing around and I'm gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f***ing whitey milks***tter."
The last part is a homophobic slur, BTW.
Now, Trump is fighting back in the war of words with his own comments, saying to reporters about El Chapo's threats:
"I'm fighting for much more than myself. I'm fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can't be intimidated. It's too important."
Good luck with that!
The Donald seems to be a particularly single-noted presidential candidate -- but at least he's not backing down!
What do U think -- did The Donald bite off more than he can chew with this little spat?!

Mexican Drug Lord Escapes Prison Shawshank Redemption-Style — And Authorities Are Desperate To Find Him!
Scary stuff here!
Authorities in Mexico are in the middle of a massive manhunt to find Joaquin Guzman, a very powerful drug lord, who has broken out of prison... again.
Guzman, known as El Chapo, went missing sometime before a routine check late Saturday night at Altiplano prison in south central Mexico.
Allegedly, El Chapo escaped through a hole in his cell which wound through a mile-long tunnel to freedom, almost as if plucked directly from the film Shawshank Redemption.
The only difference is, Guzman isn't an innocent con, but rather one of the world's most powerful and dangerous drug lords. He initially escaped from a prison in 2001 by hiding in a laundry cart, and wasn't caught again until 2014.
The United States Justice Department isn't playing around, saying of Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel:
"[It is] one of the world's most prolific, violent and powerful drug cartels. [Guzman was] considered the world's most powerful drug lord until his arrest in Mexico in February 2014."
Officials mean business, too -- they've closed Toluca International Airport, which is a 45-minute drive away from the prison, in the hopes of preventing El Chapo from traveling too far out of the area.

Not many people can still look pretty in a mug shot, but what do you expect from the former Miss Nevada USA?
Katherine Nicole Rees was arrested this week for drug-related charges, specifically ones involving meth. Yikes!
Court documents were filed on Monday that claim the former beauty queen sold methamphetamine back in September to someone named J. Peacock.
The papers also say that about a month after that, she was found with 5.3 grams of the drug. They also allege that the 30-year-old had been working with "unknown co-conspirators."
On Wednesday, a $50,000 arrest warrant was issued for her. And sadly, this isn't the first time the beauty queen found herself in a not-so-pretty situation.
Three years ago, Katherine pleaded guilty to a drug possession charge, and, as a result, had to complete a drug counseling program.
In 2008, she was also charged with resisting arrest, and only the year before that, she was was stripped of her crown and title after scandalous snapshots of her surfaced.
We're hoping this arrest is the wake-up call she needs.

Scott Disick Doesn’t Have Time To Care About His Kourtney Kardashian Breakup Because He’s Too Busy Promoting His Upcoming Parties
A party is definitely what he needs right now.
On Tuesday, Scott posted a photo letting his followers know about an event he's hosting at 1OAK in Las Vegas on Friday.
We're a little surprised he's in the partying mood considering he just broke up with the woman he has three kids with...
But on the other hand, he did just spend an entire week drinking in Monte Carlo with his other exgirlfriend Chloé Bartoli, so a hosting gig at a nightclub actually seems pretty on brand for the 32-year-old.
We're sure it was a contracted post for his appearance, but still, it would have been nice to see the breakup take a toll on Scott since they had been together since 2006.
Regardless, now we know where he's gonna be on Friday!

Whoopi Goldberg Is STILL Defending Bill Cosby Following The New Revelations And Janice Dickinson Is PISSED!
Newly released court documents from a 2005 deposition of Bill Cosby have shed a new light on the allegations against him.
In the unsealed files, the 77-year-old -- who has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting dozens of women -- admitted to acquiring drugs with the intention of using them to have sex with girls.
But on The View on Tuesday, Whoopi Goldberg revealed that she's not condemning the comedian just yet, saying:
"We'll see what happens as more information comes out. People will make judgments. I don't like snap judgments because I've had snap judgments made on me, so I'm very, very careful...Save your texts, save your nasty comments. I don't care."
The 59-year-old even went on to say that she isn't going to view him as a rapist until physical evidence against him has surfaced:
"This is my opinion and in America, still — I know it's a shock — but you actually were innocent until proven guilty. He has not been proven a rapist."
"What is wrong with you, Whoopi Goldberg? What more does it take? You need to be fired. How dare you sit there on The View? You need to be fired, you stupid woman. That is ridiculous."
She also responded to Cosby's confession about getting drugs for sex, revealing she can't consider it a victory until some wrongs have been righted:
"I don't know how to feel. I don't have the strength at the moment until -- until each and every one of the women that have accused Bill Cosby along with myself and a few others that have personally reached out to me that will not come forward due to character victimization -- I would like an apology for each and every one of us in order for my soul to feel. I don't feel any 'hip-hip hoorays.'"
So what do U think of the disturbing drama, Perezcious readers?

The case against Bill Cosby just keeps getting more concrete.
It seems every week another woman comes forward with a story of being groped, drugged, or otherwise molested by the comedian.
In fact, so many women have come forward, it can be difficult to keep track of the victims.
So here is a complete (and staggering!) list of all the women who have accused Cosby so far:
Chelan (last name undisclosed)
Renita Cheney Hill
Kacey (last name undisclosed)
Janice Baker Kinney
Charlotte Laws (on behalf of her friend Sandy)
Lisa (last name undisclosed)
Patricia (last name undisclosed)
Jena T. (last name undisclosed)
Linda Joy Traitz
That's 45 separate accusations as of the beginning of July 2015.

Nick Gordon Recorded Saying It Was Drugs That Hurt Bobbi Kristina And That He Had Nothing To Do With It
Nick Gordon is adamant that he's innocent.
With Bobbi Kristina currently unresponsive in her Atlanta area hospice, her boyfriend Nick has been recorded giving his true thoughts on what led to her incident on Jan. 31.
While many of Krissy's family members think her BF may have had something to do with her being found in her bathroom, Nick thinks it was her car accident four days before she was found that made her abuse drugs and alcohol, not him.
Someone on Bobby Brown's side of the family reportedly recorded Nick on the telephone without his knowledge three weeks after Krissy was found, where he states:
"I'll tell you the honest truth, Krissy, she was under a lot of stress and we were all doing drugs and you know, all, all drinking, bro.
She just did too much man. She, listen, listen bro. I will officially stay from bath tubs forever, I'll tell you that.
When Krissy wakes up she'll tell the truth to everybody. Everybody will feel stupid as f***... You know Krissy got in an accident 2 days before this happened and the man is in critical condition right now."
While the man involved in her car accident has since awoken from his coma, we're sure his life threatening injuries were weighing heavily on Krissy's mind before her own accident.
Still, with things looking grim for the 22-year-old, we're not sure if we'll ever really find out what happened.
What do U think about Nick's recorded statement??

Whatcha got there, girl?
By the looks of it, Miley Cyrus had a suuuuuuuuper chill day!
On Thursday, the singer took to Instagram to show off this smokin' selfie (literally) and the furry friends she calls her armpits.
It seems like the pink pit dye has disappeared, but we're wondering if that's the only thing that's faded in this shot?
The singer bragged about her lazy day in the caption:
"Today hazzzzz be consistently chill AF#evengotsomecleanindone #f**kyeah"
Well, the pop of pink may be gone from her armpits, but that's okay, because it's literally everywhere else in this picture: her skimpy bikini, her shades, and whatever the heck she's lounging on (a pool raft, perhaps)!
And though the hue didn't last, it seems the hair is here to stay!
Miles just won't stop showing off her shaggy pits, and we totally love that she just owns it!

We really hope he stays with it!
Rob Kardashian reportedly checked into a rehab facility in Palm Beach over the weekend.
Celebrity bodyguard Mark Behar claims that the 28-year-old has finally listened to his family's wishes and wants to get help.
According to Mark, Rob is now part of a 60-Day program where he will battle his alcohol, marijuana, and cough syrup addictions:
"He told me ‘This is it, I just need to stick with it and do this.'
Rob will probably lose 10 to 20 pounds within the first few weeks by just being in rehab and daily programs relating to his detox."
While weight loss would be a positive outcome from his stint in rehab, what we're most hoping for is that he fights off his addictions.
Only Rob can really help himself out of this hole, and we're so happy he's finally taken the first step towards doing so!

We can't imagine what it must be like to watch someone you love suffer from addiction, especially so publicly.
The 74-year-old explained:
"What he was going through at that time, we were powerless to do much. Except to pray for him and lift him up."
Aww, poor Martin. Considering Charlie is an adult with kids of his own, we can understand just how powerless the actor must have felt.
"Only those of us that knew him understood what was going on. I'm talking about steroids, at that time. He was in a very desperate situation. And he was doing what he felt would get him out of it — going public. And it was very painful. No less painful for him."
Woah, steroids?! We assumed drug use played a role in Charlie's meltdown but this is the first time we're hearing of steroid use.
As for how Martin supported his son during that harrowing time period, he revealed:
"You can assure them you're there and you love them, but you cannot effect change. That's your ego, for the most part. You pray for a moment of clarity, you trust in a higher power, and you never, ever give up hope. Because that is a measure of despair."
Well, we're glad the West Wing star didn't give up on the 49-year-old because it seems like Charlie has cleaned up his life...for the most part.
So, what do YOU think of Martin's comments regarding his son's meltdown?
