More and more details are emerging about Aaron Carter’s death. A video shows the singer’s fiancé worrying about Aaron in the days leading up to his death. Last week Aaron posted a livestream video and Melanie Martin wrote to him, “You’re going to die.” The context of the message isn’t known, but Aaron was clearly upset by the comment. Likewise, fans expressed their concerns for Aaron during the live stream. The “I Want Candy” singer was found dead in a bathtub at his home by his housekeeper on November 5. Two days later, on Nov. 7, TMZ reported that multiple cans of compressed air were found in Aaron’s bedroom and bathroom, and investigators believe he may have been puffing on the cans before he died. Prescription pills are also said to have been found. In addition, the Daily Mail reported some disturbing allegations, alleging that Aaron’s medically trained neighbors heard a frantic 911 call on a police scanner and ran to the house to help before medics or the police arrived. However, despite being armed with a defibrillator, they claim that the housekeeper – the same one who found Aaron – refused them entry into the house. In addition, neighbors said the housekeeper initially refused to let the sheriff’s deputies into the house. The official cause of death is not known. Aaron is believed to have been dead for quite some time before he was found in the tub.

“Interesting” industry commentary
Theatre! Actress Francia Raísa seemed to take a stab at Selena Gomez after the “Lose You to Love Me” singer called Taylor Swift her “only friend in the industry.” After seeing a climax of the quote, the “adult” actress commented, “Interesting.” She has since deleted the tweet. Francia and Selena were once very close. In fact, Francia donated a kidney to Selena – who suffers from lupus – in 2017. E! News said Francia is also no longer following Selena, and the rumor mill claimed that the two women had been falling out since 2018. After Francia’s comment, many fans felt that Selena had offended her former boyfriend, especially considering the kidney donation. After a popular TikTok influencer explained the perceived feud, Selena spat out, “Sorry I didn’t mention every person I know.”

Video concerns, clapback
Jessica Simpson doesn’t have it. Late last week, the fashion mogul posted a video from inside her daughter’s room — a video meant to focus on the decor. However, fans were stunned and felt Jessica was acting strange and slurring her words. “Is she alright?” was a common response. On November 6, Jessica responded to the criticism by posting an Instagram clip of herself singing at her music studio, where she goes to “ground and heal myself.” Addressing the critical comments head-on, she wrote, “As much as I’ve learned to tune out destructive noise… people’s comments and judgments can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging of ‘You’ll never be good enough.’ The most important thing I’ve learned over the past 5 years is that alcohol is no protection against escapism, that I can and will ALWAYS get through it.” She continued, “I’m capable of pretty much anything that’s important enough to me to focus on. I am present. I am deeply inspired. I am determined. I am honest. I care about other people my voice and the lyrics in my heart, I feel compassion for the wayward hatred that some people express so effortlessly and can blurt out with such intensity on social media, or media in general. We all have our days when we want to be, look, do and feel better. No one is alone with that feeling, I promise you. Me woke up anxious and insecure but also angry and defensive at the same time – like some of you I know what works for me and that is letting go and just singing while I’m right in the game gel look straight into my eyes to really see and understand myself. I can connect to my heartbeat. I am stable and strong. I’m home.

Sylvester Stallone has said a “tragic mistake” almost led him and his wife Jennifer Flavin to divorce. In August, Sly’s wife, to whom she has been married for more than two decades, filed for divorce. At first, the split hardly seemed amicable as there were rumors of a fight with a dog, which the Oscar winner has denied. In a new interview, Sly said the real problem is being a workaholic. “Sometimes I present the work [my family]and that’s a tragic mistake that won’t happen again,” the “Rocky” star told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview published Nov. 7. In the weeks after filing for divorce, the longtime couple settled their differences and reconciled. The divorce has since been dismissed in court.” “Hopefully you’re dealing with people who understand the foibles of life, its fragility and how rare one is really good relationship,” Sly said.

The rich get richer. Ryan Seacrest is reportedly dealing coasts and recently dumped his swanky Beverly Hills, Calif. mansion for a cool $51 million, TMZ reported. The house is more of a composite as it comprised five structures.
