Celebrity Scoops…updated Wed., 6.21.17

Daniel Day Lewis Gangs of New YorkDaniel Day-Lewis is calling it quits on his acting career. The news about the only three-time Best Actor Oscar winner and father of three was confirmed in a statement released to Variety yesterday. “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” his spokesperson Leslee Dart announced. “He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.” Famed for getting into character days prior to filming, the actor was said to be “pretty terrifying when he was in character.” A technician relayed, “If he was doing a scene while he was being aggressive or having a fight, he would start getting really angry a few days beforehand and would be glaring and snarling at people on the set.”

The Los Angeles County coroner’s report about the death of actress Carrie Fisher confirmed a mixture of drugs in her system when she went into cardiac arrest while bound for Los Angeles and died one day later. The results “suggest there was an exposure to heroin, but that the does and time of exposure cannot be pinpointed.” The tests also revealed that cocaine had been consumed within 72 hours prior her death.

Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy passed away yesterday, but the cause of his death is still being investigated. He was wheeled onto a stretcher and taken to a hospital Saturday night after appearing at an after-party at The Mirage. He was supposed to perform, but around 1:30am, he told people he was not feeling well, according to TMZ, and concerned attendees placed him on a gurney and steered him to the ER.


Khloe Kardashian paties crop top Joyce Bonelli InstagramKhloe Kardashian has some food tips for those looking to reduce their belly fat. “There’s nothing more frustrating than having all your fitness and diet efforts sabotaged by BLOAT,” she said on her website. “Those baby abs will never see the light of day if they’re hidden behind water retention, honey!” So – avoid salt as much as possible, and indulge in avocados (famous for being loaded with potassium, which rids your body of excess sodium), ginger (anti-inflammatory food), watermelon (flushes out excess water), and oats (improve digestion and balance the bacteria in your gut). Mangia up!

Happy Hump Day!
