Drugs found at Bobbi Kristina’s house as she fights for her life in hospital

After Bobbi Kristina was found face down in her bathtub over the weekend, she was rushed to hospital and put into a medically-induced coma to reduce brain swelling. While her family released a statement yesterday that Bobbi is “fighting for her life”, she is thought to be doing somewhat better and has opened and closed her eyes at least once – a positive sign to everyone holding vigil at her bedside.

While no one knows exactly what led to this tragedy, originally drugs and alcohol had been ruled out of the equation after an initial search by the police. However, perhaps unsurprisingly, it seems as though drugs did actually have something to do with it and authorities have actually taken several items from the house which the family have admitted are drug-related.

We’ve confirmed … over the weekend cops went back a second time to search the house. The first time they went they found nothing, but we’re told they went a second time and seized several items.

Cops will not confirm they found drugs, but family sources tell TMZ authorities told the family that is indeed what was found.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … they believed from the beginning Bobbi Kristina ended up face down in a bathtub as a result of drugs.

As for why cops didn’t find anything during the first search … we’re told they were only looking for items that were “out in the open.” Law enforcement tells us the second search was more thorough.

Again, this is hardly surprising – drugs have been a big part of Bobbi’s life for years. What remains to be seen is whether or not this was intentional, whether or not she can pull through and if she does, if she can finally get the help she so desperately needs to get her life somewhat back on track. Here’s hoping!

Helen Mirren and Tom Hanks ride the subway

Stars – they’re just like us! We’ve all got places to be and a limited amount of time, so it’s only natural that some celebs would be smart about the whole affair, skip the traffic on the streets and hit public transport. That’s exactly what Dame Helen Mirren decided to do when she hit up the R train over the weekend. Where was she going? Why the R train – doesn’t she know the Q & N run express?

Dame Helen isn’t the only one traveling smart – Tom Hanks also hit up the 1 train recently… and took up 2 seats, no less!

Tsk tsk. I guess it’s okay since it wasn’t rush hour.

Have you ever been on a bus/train/plane with a famous person? I have a few times, but my very first experience was back in 2004 when Paris Hilton was on my Virgin America flight from LAX to JFK.

‘Pitch Perfect 2′ has a new trailer and it looks great

pitch perfect 2

The Super Bowl makes way for a lot of clever new advertisements, but it also tends to premiere trailers and clips for upcoming movies that we’re all excited about. One of those trailers was for Pitch Perfect 2, and it looks awesome! All our favourites are there – Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Banks, Rebel Wilson… basically, it’s going to be the best.

Pitch Perfect 2 isn’t out until May, so we’ve got a long time to wait, but I’m excited!

The Red Power Ranger murdered his roommate this weekend

The headline is probably a little misleading. A lot of people (well, I guess some?) probably think of a man named Austin St. John as the Red Power Ranger, but don’t worry – this isn’t about him! This is about Ricardo Medina Jr. who played the Red Power Ranger in a few movies and versions of the TV show. That dude killed his roommate this weekend with a sword he kept in his room. Yikes!

Here’s the LASD press release:

Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the stabbing death of a man.  The incident occurred shortly before 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, January 31, 2015, in the 38000 block of San Francisquito Canyon Road, Palmdale.

The victim was identified as Joshua Sutter, a 36-year-old male, who lived at the location with the suspect, identified as Ricardo Medina, also a 36-year-old male.

That afternoon, the victim and the suspect became involved in an argument, which turned into a physical altercation.  Suspect Medina retreated to his bedroom with his girlfriend, but Victim Sutter followed them and forced the door open.  Suspect Medina stabbed Victim Sutter once in the abdomen with a sword kept next to the bedroom door.

Suspect Medina called 9-1-1, remained at the location and was later interviewed by Homicide Bureau detectives.  He was booked for Murder at Palmdale Sheriff’s Station, where he is being held in lieu of one million dollars bail.

Whoa. That’s a bit crazy! I feel like this may have been an accident – which I know seems hard to believe given that Medina stabbed him with a sword and all – but maybe this was a self-defense thing? Who knows, but it’s pretty messed up.

For reference, this is Medina:

Bobbi Kristina is not in good shape, Bobby Brown releases statement

Such a sad situation – as you know, Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home on Saturday and has since been placed in a medically-induced coma to help with brain swelling. Things aren’t going well, since according to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina is on a ventilator and doctors have said that her brain function is “alarmingly low” – meaning even if she does wake up, it’s not clear if she’ll be able to function to any degree.

Bobbi’s father, Bobby Brown, released a statement yesterday to US Weekly:

“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”

I know I’ve already said it, but this whole thing is so, so sad. Bobbi Kristina never really stood a chance, did she? I mean, she grew up with two parents who were drug addicts (to the point that they allegedly did drugs around her) and allowed her to be involved in the self-destructive world of substance abuse from an early age. When Whitney died, I think it pushed Bobbi over the edge – they were incredibly close and I just don’t think she could cope.

I hope she makes a turnaround, but if this was intentional, I don’t think there’s anything to keep Bobbi from trying again. Really, really unfortunate all around.

Katy Perry had a grand ol’ time at the Super Bowl

Katy Perry has been getting pumped up for her Super Bowl halftime show for a while now – posing on the cover of magazines, holding press conferences, racking up special guest stars… and finally, last night it was time for the BIG EVENT!

There was flying over the stadium, dancing sharks, fireworks (natch), MISSY ELLIOTT… it was craaaazy, and the whole thing went off as only a Katy Perry show could do. I thought it was a lot of fun, but I’m sure there’ll be some detractors.

Here it is again, just in case you missed it. What did you think of the Super Bowl halftime show?
