While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Rihanna has lost her "Diamonds"-encrusted place at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" has claimed the top spot. Taylor Swift's "Red," meanwhile, is back at No. 1 on the albums side. [Billboard]
  • Netflix is burrowing itself further into the hearts of "Arrested Development" fans as news comes that the order for episodes is going to be larger than anticipated. [Deadline]
  • As though you needed another reason to Florence + The Machine, but we're going to give you one any. Florence Welch is a boss, and if you try to fight while she's performing "Shake It Out" she'll promptly break it up.

    charlie crack is gone. I wish it wasn't true but it is. He was like a brother to me. I have been in contact with his inner circle and I have no doubts. I am sorry people don't believe it. Hospitals do not give out information especially after the record signs forms not allowing information to be released. Also, federal HIPPA laws don't allow it. The coroner doesn't comment on open investigations. The Dallas Morning News doesn't put their Metro section online. Contact their archive department.

      Hospitals will give out the info on whether you were in the hospital or not. They won't give out any medical info. I would think that the sisters would know by talking to them, whether they were getting the run around or not. Find an article, or a death notice, or an obituary notice, take a pic, and send it to one of the sisters. They will tell us the truth.

    Hey everybody, remember me? I thought I'd pop in here, and let you know what I know about CC. I got a call from Fix in Tx , apparently, right after that post appeared on the blog. (Peace let me know it was on there). She said that it was all true. She said the lawyer from the recording company had called her, because she was in his phone address book. I had a really bad connection, so I missed half of what she said., not to mention I was in shock from her news. She also left me a voice mail yesterday with more info, but again, bad connection. I have a text into her for more info. This is what I know. I've been searching the web for any death notices and obituary postings. I have found nothing. We did call the hospital that "Jazmine" put out there. First person had no record. They then sent me to emergency, still no record. The sent me to the records department, still no record. They gave me the medical examiners number, still no record of him. Unless he changed his name, he was never in that hospital. I've been searching newspapers looking for shooting deaths. I just don't see it. I'm starting to think this is a hoax of the cruelest nature. I have not had contact from CC for many months now. We did have a falling out when we realized that he had been feeding us a bunch of lies that were unforgivable. We took him into our home and our hearts. He was family to us, until we discovered the truth about him. I had him in my house for Thanksgiving 2011. I don't know what to tell you folks, but we will continue to look for answers, and let you know what we find out. When Fix gets back to me, I will do some more research on the information that she has. She may be getting scammed just like the rest of us. Either I , or Peace will keep you updated as we try to unravel the truth. One more thing, is it me, or did the Jazmine posts sound more like a guy? Makes you wonder, doesn't it. Have a good day everybody!

    • sorry

      To hear that he wasn't what you people thought he was. Hopefully now y'all know better than to just let any random people into your homes and lives. What if the guy came to your homes and shoot all of you and your familes. The guy was always wanting to shoot people on here. Learn a lesson and stop being so trustworthy meeting people on blogs. Keep us updated. After all he was a part of marquee.

      I just got an update from Fix in Tx. What she got was a mass text from his phone, supposedly by the record company. This is getting just a little hard to believe. I told her about the article that "Jazmine" talked about. She is going to try to find it. Until then, I'm not buying it. I truly hope he is ok, and this is just a cruel joke.
      Hey BV! How ya been? I thought of you when the hurricane hit. Hope you were safe during that terrible storm. I was not afraid of him being a crazy person when we invited him for Thanksgiving. We thought he had no family, and didn't want him to be alone. Not to mention, he could not get a gun past the airline security. He was a perfect gentleman, and we had a blast when he was here. But you are right, you never really know a person from long distance conversations. Lesson learned.

    Here I sit w/my ph reading all these comments. Idk what to think. All my info is in Charlie's ph, along w/everyone else's. nobody has contacted me. I've searched for info, made some calls, & nothing. He just recently sent a txt to 1 of us, so I know the info is there. Now the part that really baffles me...Jazmine saying how terrible we were to him. I say,"WTH"? We welcomed him into our homes, cried w/him when "something" hap'd, & we felt like he was part of our family. Jazmine, idk who you were calling trash cuz it sure as hell wasn't me or my family. I wish I would have been here last pm for that convo, I have many unanswered questions. I have to go, but, feel free to share some info...arrangements etc.

      The thing is, a lot of us are hoping this is a hoax. Nobody wished any harm to CC. I did go to the dallas morning news, and I didn't see a metro section on their website. I didn't see anything relating to any shootings. I just won't believe he's gone until I have something concrete. I'm not trying to be uncaring or cruel. I just don't want this to be true. But if it is true, my heart goes out to you and your friends.

      Speculate on the fact that they give 30 seconds for the story on his death and state "ongoing investigation". And then move on to a chemical spill with hazmat for 20 minutes. It happened in the lobby of a studio. Yes. That's still broad daylight. I knew him. I was close to him and so were many others. We were letting certain people know out of respect and the only way we knew to. Speculate all you please but keep your fake mystery solving and try again. You really should be ashamed.

If you are grieving for your friend, like you say, this should be the very last thing on your mind. Also, what's the purpose of insulting some of the people that blog here.

  42. LiLo in trouble again

    The 26-year-old actress was arraigned in California today on misdemeanor charges for lying to police, driving recklessly, and obstructing an officer from doing his duties after she crashed her Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway in June.

    Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Lohan's informal probation from her 2011 necklace theft case and set a probation violation hearing for Jan. 15. If Godfrey decides Lohan did violate her probation, she could face 245 days in jail.

    Lohan did not appear in court. She was represented by her longtime lawyer Shawn Holley, who did not respond to ABCNews.com's requests for comment.

    Lohan's legal troubles boiled over again last month. She was arrested on Nov. 29 after a New York City bar brawl in which she allegedly punched a Palm Beach psychic. She faces a misdemeanor assault charge in that case.

    Later that day, she was charged with three misdemeanors from the Porsche crash.

    Problems Pile Up for Lohan

    She's had multiple run-ins with cops this fall. In September, she was arrested outside New York's Dream Downtown hotel when a pedestrian claimed she hit him with her car and did not stop. The Manhattan District Attorney's Office declined to prosecute that case.

    That same month, Lohan was involved in a hotel-room quarrel that began over a set of cell phone photos of her allegedly taken by a part time Congressional aide, Christian LaBella. Lohan claimed LaBella had assaulted her, which led to his arrest, but the misdemeanor charges against him were later dropped.

    In October, police were called to her Lohan's home on Long Island after a report of a fight between her and her mother. An investigation revealed "no criminality."
