Word comes from law enforcement officials that they are investigating whether a doctor was prescribing Prince drugs – specifically painkillers – prior to his death. They and the Drug Enforcement Administration are also seeking information about whether a physician was onboard Prince’s plane when it made an emergency landing in Moline, IL. So far the autopsy has shown “no obvious signs of trauma,” but toxicity exams could take weeks to complete. Meanwhile, sources tell People magazine that the singer had been struggling with an “ongoing illness” at the time of his sudden death.

Eva Mendes, who is pregnant with baby No. 2 with Ryan Gosling, and her family members are mourning the death of her brother Carlos Mendez, 53, who succumbed to cancer last week. The “Hitch” actress remembered his life alongside family and friends at the Church of the Recessional in Glendale, CA, Tuesday. He was diagnosed with throat cancer two years ago.

Jennifer Lawrence Oscars 2016So what is stunning, successful Jennifer Lawrence missing in her world? Apparently some dates. When asked by “Extra’s” A.J. Calloway about her single status at the premiere of her film, “A Beautiful Planet” and dating life, she responded, “What dating life?” “Are you kidding me?” he asked in disbelief. “No, it’s really sad. I haven’t felt the touch of a man in…” just before laughing. She also discussed the screenplay she and Amy Schumer are writing together and how they are looking for a director and “find the time in our schedule right now” for the project.

Congrats to Courteney Cox, who is engaged again to ex Johnny McDaid! The 51-year-old actress and Snow Patrol rocker were spotted in a passionate kiss outside Heathrow Airport. “Courteney and Johnny are planning a fall wedding,” an insider tells Life & Style. “They just took a trip to London to meet with their wedding planner. They are considering Castle Leslie were Paul McCartney married Heather Mills as well as Ballintubber Abbey, where Pierce Brosnan got married.” This time around, though, it will be a modest affair. “She really wants a low-key wedding with about 100 guests,” a pal remarked. “Their good friend Ed Sheeran will be playing and Johnny will be singing a song he wrote especially for Courteney.” Of course the “Friends” cast members are expected to attend as well.

Julia Roberts Jennifer Aniston Mothers Day 4-16Speaking of “Friends”…”Mother’s Day” starring Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts opens this weekend, alongside the comedy “Keanu,” starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. And for the family, you can’t go too wrong with the animated adventure film, “Ratchet & Clank,” who try to stop an alien, Chairman Drek, from destroying all the planets in the Solana Galaxy.

Happy Friday! Rest up this weekend!
