He will be missed.

According to People, David Cassidy has passed away at 67.

As we reported earlier this week, the Partridge Family star was hospitalized in Florida for “multiple organ failure.” Although doctors were initially waiting for a kidney transplant, they determined it was a “futile” effort.

Willow Smith Has Some Thoughts About How ‘Terrible’ It Is To Grow Up Famous

It’s apparently been a tough and ‘terrible’ life for

On what it was like to be a famous kid of famous parents coming through her formative years, Willow said (below):

She’s taking a TON of heat because she said it was “terrible” to grow up famous… and all nuance gets lost because people think she’s ungrateful or whatever else.

Maybe next time, don’t talk about growing up famous? Avoid it all together?!

Joy Bryant Reveals She Was Born As The Result Of A Sexual Assault ‘Because She Didn’t Matter, I Didn’t Matter To Her’

Sexual violence has impacted Joy Bryant‘s life in many more ways than one.

Although the Parenthood star has her own #MeToo stories — in the latest Lenny Letter, the 43-year-old revealed she was born as the result of her mother being sexually assaulted.

The New York native penned:

“…There’s hard work that needs to be done to eradicate this ‘pandemic’ of sexual violence against women, especially those who are not famous. I thought about my own experiences of abuse, assault and harassment, pre-fame and post-fame. The male babysitter when I was five, the male photographer in my early twenties, the male studio executive a few years ago. Yeah, me too.”

She went on:

“And in my acknowledgment of common cause with the countless women coming forward in Hollywood and beyond, I thought about my mother, Joyce. Yeah, her too. On October 18, 1974, Joyce gave birth to me. not in love but in shame, after hiding her pregnancy from my grandmother for six months. I am the product of a 15-year-old girl and an older man she knew. It doesn’t matter how or why or when. It happened, and with both my mother and my father dead, I’ll never know the specifics.”

The former model emotionally wrote how her mother wasn’t able to be the mom Joy needed because of treatment, or lack there of, as a victim:

“What matters is that no one protected her before or after. What matters is that my mother was the one who was shamed. What matters is that my father ruined her life just as it was blossoming. What matters is she was trapped in a trauma she could never escape, a trauma that prevented her from being the mother I needed her to be. What matters is that she didn’t matter. And because she didn’t matter, I didn’t matter to her.”

She continued:

“For years, the silence between us was so loud, I had to cover my hears. I never knew who my mother was as a woman. I never heard her story from her. She never let me in. I never asked. I didn’t know how. Neither did she. So my experience of my mother was based on how she treated me, what I heard, and what I saw, most of which was far from nurturing and kind.”

Joy then addressed the allegations to storm over Hollywood the past month:

“The recent outing of Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., and many others have been shocking in its existence. Women have long been victimized by the evil that men do, especially men in power. Men who rule with iron fists, limp dicks, and egos as big as the sky. To see woman after women lift up her voice in a #MeToo clarion of solitary and acknowledgement of the pervasive abuse that we’ve experienced is liberating on the one hand and sobering on the other. It’s comforting to know that you’re not alone;. But goddamn — who hasn’t been abused, harassed, assaulted, or traumatized?”

Preach.

Joy finished her essay by revealing how she’s come to accept her mother’s story:

“[My mother’s] story is one of stolen innocence and lost potential, a record of pain spun on a never ending loop. Her story is sadly the story of so many. It’s taken years of therapy for me to begin to understand who I am and why I am. And because of that, I’ve come to understand who and why mother was, better than I could when she was alive. But on my birthday this year, I accepted my mother’s story as part of my own. It always was and always will be.”

Wow. What a powerful share. Thank you, Joy.

Kim Kardashian And North West Attend Katy Perry Concert On The Night Taylor Swift’s Album Drops

Don’t come for

Friday was, of course, the same day that Swift released a new album, and because it also happened to be the day Perry was performing at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles… And because this is apparently forever going to be a thing, Kim knew exactly what to do.

Legend!!! LOLz!!!

Here’s Kim, Katy, North, and the crew — which includes friend Larsa Pippen and her daughter along with some other kids — out backstage at Katy’s concert from last night (below):

Cute!!! And fun!!!

Ooh La La, Kendall Jenner & Blake Griffin Are Officially ‘A Full-On Couple’!

Us Weekly quotes the source saying:

“They’re legit. They’re a full-on couple. Kendall has been going to a lot of his games and they have been enjoying time at home when Blake is in town. They’re good.”

Happy to hear it!

And just to refresh your memory… this is Kenny’s first relationship since being linked to A$AP Rocky for over a year, and the same can be said for the 28-year-old athlete, who split from his fiancée and mother of his two young children (son Ford, 4, and daughter Finley, 13 months), Brynn Cameron, in July (although there’s some drama about whether or not it was then or later, but that’s another story).

No word yet if the reality star has met the little ones!

Good luck, you two!

Supergirl Star Hospitalized, Says He ‘Almost Died’ After Eating Chipotle!

One thing Supergirl can’t save you from? Norovirus!

Jeremy Jordan, who plays Winn on the hit CW show, shared his first Instagram Story Thursday night to let fans know he was alive but very, very ill in the hospital.

And it was all because he ate at Chipotle.

Video: Rats Fall From Ceiling At Chipotle!

Jordan shared video of his pallid face, IV drip, and hospital room, saying about the infamously illness-spreading fast food chain:

“I know I’ve advocated for them in the past, but they’re terrible. I, as you can see, am in the hospital and I have fluids in my arm because the food did not agree with me and I almost died.”

Eesh!

Jordan is scheduled to perform a “salute to Broadway” concert at the Houston Symphony on Friday night; he goes on to tell fans he hopes he can still make it.

Get well soon, Jeremy!

Chipotle has released an official response to the story, telling People:

“We are sorry to hear that Jeremy is sick and have attempted to get in touch with him directly regarding where and when he ate so we can look into this. We take all claims seriously, but at this time we can’t confirm any link to Chipotle. We are always committed to making things right for our guests and will do the same for Jeremy when we are able to reach him.”

Do YOU still eat at Chipotle??

Dynasty Star Catherine Oxenberg Is Fighting To Save Her Daughter From Controversial Cult-Like Group That Allegedly Brands Women

This is pretty terrifying!

Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg is desperately trying to remove her 26-year-old daughter, India, from a controversial group the actress alleges has “brainwashed” her oldest daughter. The so-called “self-improvement program,” Nxivm, is led by Keith Raniere and is even said to brand the women of a “secret sisterhood.”

According to the 56-year-old, India has gotten extremely involved in the organization over the past couple of years, and has even cut off communication with her family following a suspicious visit last year, during which she told her mom:

“Mom, my hair has been falling out, and I haven’t had a period in a year. Maybe I should see a doctor?”

Catherine’s friend, Bonnie Piesse, recently left the group earlier this year and told the worried mom:

“You need to save your daughter. You need to save India.”

Adding of the last time she saw her daughter:

“India was in a bad situation. One time she told me that she wasn’t going to eat for three days [out of ] penance to try and correct her behavior.”

Another former member calls her experience of being in the group “the most painful, traumatic moment of my life,” after she was branded on her lower hip with Raniere’s initials.

After dismissing her mother’s attempts to save her, India shared to her Facebook page:

This is a very concerning situation!!

We will keep you updated as we learn more.

Indonesian Pro Soccer Goalie Dies After Collision During Match And It’s All Caught On Video

This is so, so sad.

A goalkeeper for an Indonesian professional soccer team died this weekend from injuries sustained during a match in the country when he collided with another player, went down hard, and immediately started convulsing until first responders rushed on to the field to help him.

The goalkeeper, a 38-year-old veteran athlete named Choirul Huda, was pronounced dead not long after colliding with his own teammate, defender Ramon Rodrigues, and an opponent during a game between Huda’s team, Persela Lamongan, and the opponents Semen Padang.

While Huda was conscious immediately after the collision — and the collision itself doesn’t even look too out of the ordinary on video — he quickly collapsed and fell unconscious, and he was quickly taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The entire thing was captured on video, too (below) — but be warned, because it is pretty graphic and unsettling:

So scary — and what’s scarier still is the collision was a relatively common one that takes place in so many soccer games. For whatever reason, the impact led Huda to stop breathing, where he eventually suffered cardiac arrest.

His team, not knowing the extent of the injuries at the time, played the rest of the match before they all went to the hospital — and that’s where they found out their teammate had been pronounced dead.

The team honored Huda on Twitter after the match (below):

‘The Real Legend of Persela,’ as Huda was called, had been with the team since 1999, playing in more than 500 matches as a very critical member of the team.

So, so sudden — and so unbelievably sad.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Choirul Huda’s family, friends, teammates, and loved ones.
