Mislabeled Painkillers Found at Prince's Estate


Pills taken after the April death of Prince at his Minnesota compound were mislabeled. The ones labeled hydrocodone were actually fentanyl. Reports say it was fentanyl that killed the superstar.
According to the Star Tribune:
The musician, who weighed only 112 pounds at the time of his death April 21, had so much of the drug in his system, autopsy results later showed, that it would have killed anyone, regardless of size, the source said. Prince did not possess a prescription for fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that has been described as 100 times more powerful than morphine, the source said.
Despite the finding, investigators still aren’t certain how the 57-year-old megastar ingested the fentanyl. However, they are leaning toward the theory that he took the pills not knowing they contained the drug.
An autopsy report released in June by the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office said Prince died from an accidental, self-administered overdose of fentanyl. But it did not indicate how he obtained the painkiller, nor did it list any other cause of death or “significant condition.”
You can bet this investigation is far from over.

Bay Area Woman Accused of Stalking Kris Jenner and Family

Well, this doesn't give me Bay Area pride.
36 year old Christina Bankston from Newark, CA is out on $20,000 bond after allegedly terrorizing Kris Jenner for six months in 2014. The former nursing assistant is charged in a 15 count indictment. 
She cyberbullied Kris Jenner,Caitlyn Jenner, two unnamed family members and two of her assistants in that time.
She would send texts messages to Caitlyn pretending she was Kris. She hacked into Kris' iCloud and Instagram account pretending to be the momager. She would harass Kris via text and claimed she had a sex tape of her.
She would text her ""Look somewhere on your car...There's a tracking device lol lol. Well do you like the cameras don't you? I have private intimate shots of you too :) :)"
In the indictment, Bankston told police that Jenner's sister was attempting to commit suicide and would tell Jenner that she's want to see her naked and have sex with her.
Bankston is charged with six federal counts of stalking, four counts of computer hacking and one count of extortion by threat and four counts of aggravated identity theft.

TMZ broke news about the stalker back in 2014 when Bankston's hotel room at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills was raided by the FBI. They also found this creepy video of her on a ride at Disneyland expressing her love for Kris.

So creepy.

Ex-Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC Manager Lou Pearlman Dies

For any boyband enthusiast from the late 90's and early 00's, you probably hated Lou Pearlman. We know he's the man responsible for Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC.
The 62 year old former manager died while serving his 25 year prison sentence. He was currently at the Federal Correctional Institute in Texarkana, Texas, on Friday.
YAHOO News says "Pearlman was convicted in 2008 for his involvement in a massive Ponzi scheme that swindled 1,700 investors out of a half-billion dollars.
Pearlman was also sued by most of his acts – the Backstreet Boys, NSync, O-Town, LFO, Take 5, Natural and Aaron Carter – for fraud and misrepresentation."
Regardless of their past ill feelings towards eachother, former employees of Pearlman ie: Justin Timberlake,Lance Bass, Howie D. and Chris Kirkpatrick expressed their condolences via Twitter.

Erik-Michael Estrada from O-Town took to Twitter to express more feelings of Pearlman's passing.

Even Baby Carter, Aaron Carter, got in the mix.

Frank Ocean Releases Visual Album "Endless"

Frank Ocean - Endless from Audio Premieres on Vimeo.

I'm going to be honest here, I don't know what the hell is going on.

 I wake up at an ungodly hour for my day job and I woke up this "morning" to find out Frank Ocean has released new music, an actual visual album that will only be on Apple music for the time being. The work is titled Endless which was originally supposed to be the highly anticipated Boys Don't Cry.
Endless is 45 minutes long and the people at Apple are saying to be on the lookout for more Ocean songs.
This is the first taste of original Ocean content we've been given in years, since the release of Channel Orange back in 2012.

Just give us the album already, Frank.
Stop Beyonce-ing us!

In the meantime, I'm taking this and listening to it.
