A new toxicology report ordered by the family of “Clueless” actress Brittany Murphy
says rat poison may have been the cause of her death. Murphy’s mother found her dead at home on December 20, 2009 and the Los Angeles Coroner ruled her death was due to pneumonia and anemia. Strangely, Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack died from the same causes a five months later. But an independent report ordered by her father Angelo Bertolotti found that the actress did not die of natural causes. The report even suggests that Brittany and Simon could have been murdered by a third party. Following years of litigation Bertolotti was able to obtain samples of her hair, blood and tissue for testing. The Examiner reports that “based on the symptoms” exhibited by Brittany and Simon before their deaths, he ordered testing for heavy metals and toxins. According to the report the Los Angeles Coroner did not test for heavy metals. The web site quotes the lab report, “Ten (10) of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher that the WHO [The World Health Organization] high levels … Heavy metals are found in many rat poisons and insecticides. At the time of her death, Brittany displayed the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning including: headaches, dizziness, abdominal cramps, coughing, sweating, disorientation, wheezing, congestion and pneumonia.
We've got some details on Justin Bieber's
weekend party, and it sounds like it was pretty wild. A source says the booze was flowing and there was plenty of weed to go around. And Snoop Dogg wasn't the only celebrity in attendance. The guests also included Floyd Mayweather Jr., Chris Brown, T.I. and Trey Songz. There were also naked girls everywhere. Justin hired 20, quote, "big booty strippers" . . . and the other girls at the party were so "inspired" by them that THEY took their clothes off, too. Bieber had fat stacks, and was making it rain all night. He reportedly dropped $10,000 on the girls. One of them claimed she walked away with $1,300. Here's the thing, though... whoever blabbed about this party could end up in serious financial trouble. Justin made everyone, from the guests to the employees, sign a strict confidentiality agreement.

In an interview yesterday Kanye West
was talking about how he's a genius again. He said it's just a plain FACT that he is one, even though he doesn't know how to SPELL the word "genius." He says he understands that people get offended when he calls himself a genius, but it doesn't change the fact that he is one. He says he'd write "creative genius" on customs forms at the airport, except that it takes too long and he sometimes spells the word wrong. He also admits that he's not a good musician, or even a good rapper . . . he just thinks he can be a genius anyway.

Demi went on to defend Miley by saying that all those child stars are grown up now, and they all found their own ways to get there.
