Paul Walker, known for his roles in the Fast and the Furious movies and Varsity Blues, died Saturday afternoon in a fiery car crash. He was only 40 years old.
Paul was in Valencia, California doing some charity work at the time. He was attending this event to raise money for the typhoon victims in the Philippines. The event was co-sponsored by his close friend and race car buddy Roger Rodas and his high-performance car shop called Always Evolving.
Around 3 p.m., Paul and Roger went for a joy ride in Roger’s 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. Roger was driving and he lost control of the car. They hit a light pole and the car exploded. Roger and Paul were both killed instantly and burned beyond recognition. Paul’s 15-year old daughter Meadow was at the charity event, as well as Roger’s 8-year old son. They may have witnessed the accident.
The LA County Sheriff’s Office says that they were speeding at the time but they aren’t sure how fast they were going. TMZ sources claim that the car malfunctioned. They say that the steering wheel fluid was leaking and that’s why there were no skid marks at the scene. They are saying it was a factory defect.
Paul’s rep confirmed his death later on Saturday. He released a statement, saying, “It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences.”
Paul was in the middle of filming the 7th movie for the Fast and the Furious franchise. It is being reported that they are delaying the production but have no plans to scrap the film altogether. He does have a movie that is being released in two weeks about Hurricane Katrina called Hours.
So sad. Thinking of his family, especially his daughter, at this time.
Kim Kardashian is a lot of things.. but don’t call her a bad mother!
After one Twitter user accused her of never spending time with her 5-month old daughter North West, Kim responded back with, “U sound so ignorant. Bc I don’t tweet or instagram my every move w my daughter means I am not with her 24/7? We share what we want. Or is it bc I go support my fiance at every show & I post pix? When the baby goes down 4 bed or a nap, parents are allowed 2 work & support each other, maybe even have fun too.”
And have you seen the Kardashians’ annual Christmas card? It’s a little strange. It was Kim’s idea to change up the usually jolly card. Usually, it was photographed by their friend Nick Saglimbeni but Kim convinced them to use this artsy photographed named David LaChapelle instead.
David wanted only the girls to be in the Christmas card this year but Bruce Jenner refused to stay away. Kourtney also insisted on putting her two kids, Mason and Penelope, in the photo.. but those were the only two guys in this year’s Christmas card. No Lamar, no Kanye, no Robert, no Scott.. and no baby Nori.
The card is “set in a post-apocalyptic, chaotic casino with mannequin parts all over the place, and a sea of tabloid magazines with various members of the clan on the cover strewn across the floor.”
It also has different modeling pictures of Kim splashed up in the background. Kris Jenner was sitting on a cashier booth while wearing a Cleopatra headdress. Bruce was wearing a tuxedo and sporting long hair.. He was stuck inside of a glass money teller tube. And all of the Kardashian girls were wearing black cocktail dresses but Kim seemed to be the focus with her peek-a-boobs top.
See the Christmas card picture HERE.
What do you think? Artistic? Strange? Ironic?
Denise Richards has cared for Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller’s twins anytime they needed her to.. She kept them through Brooke’s many ventures to rehab, would watch them just when their mother didn’t feel like it. But now Brooke is upset because she looks like a bad mother after Denise had to give up caring for the twins due to their violent behavior.
So Brooke retaliated by calling the cops on Denise right before Thanksgiving to report that she was abusing the twins and her own three children.
Denise answered all of the police’s questions but refused to let them inside because her daughter’s were home at the time. Denise said that Brooke’s claims were “ridiculous” and “vindictive”.
Family services are looking into the claims. They say that Brooke will be in big trouble if these allegations end up being false because they will have to grill all of the children about the child abuse claims.
If you were wondering what Charlie was doing for the holidays, he was living the Sheen dream with some porn star named Brett Rossi. He tweeted a photo of them together in Cabo with the caption, “Best Thanksgiving ever. I’m thankful for “Giving” the world another face-load of planet jealous ! hashtagHowYaLikeMeWow.”
Just last week, Ed posted a picture him hugging Courteney with the caption, “My friend Courteney is nominated for a People Choice Award for favourite cable tv actress. She’s never won one before and she lets me live in her beach house, so how’s about we all vote for her and win her the [darn] thang eh?”
Then he spent Thanksgiving with Jennifer Aniston and her close friends. Jennifer’s rep posted a Thanksgiving day picture with Jennifer and Ed. No other details on their turkey day adventures though.
So is Ed just one of those popular guys that’s just friends with all of the cool girls? He became close friends with Taylor Swift earlier this year and denied that there was more to their relationship. Now he’s shacking up and grubbing down with some older cougs…
Miranda Kerr has a new boyfriend.. but the timing is kinda suspicious. She is dating Australia’s richest man, this guy named James Packer (PICS). But James just separated from his wife a few months ago, just like Miranda.
James became a billionaire after buying and selling casinos. He and his former wife were good friends with Miranda and her recently ex-husband Orlando Bloom. They even spent the holidays together last year in Tahiti.
And now Miranda and James are suddenly dating.. but did this relationship start before or after they were both separated?
