Huge week in the art sales world, record set

It pains a lot of people to see individual works of art sell for insane amounts of money, when so many current artist still can't afford rent, but that's the game and when you play you know the rules. This week Christies auctioned off Jeff Koon's iconic "rabbit" sculpture.  The piece was made in 1986 when Jeff felt inspired by a childs toy.  Art dealer Bob Mnuchin, the father of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, made the winning bid for $91.1 million.  Making it the highest amount paid for work by a living artist.  Previously (as in just last year) that honor went to David Hockney who's "Portrait of the artist" sold for just over $90m.

‘Thor’ actor Isaac Kappy dead at 42 after jumping off bridge

Wow. I've heard this mans name (Issac Kappy) several times. When he supposedly choked Paris Jackson at a party, when he accused Steven Speilberg and Seth Green of pedophilia.  And once again when Paris moved out of her home b/c she felt unsafe with him knowing where she lived. So there have been issues plaguing this person for years. Kappy reportedly jumped to his death from a bridge in Bellemont, Arizona, a spokesperson with the Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed to Deadlin...
