According to reports from Marin County Sheriff’s office the 63-year-old actor was found dead inside his home around 12 noon Monday. It was further suspected that the Oscar-winning actor’s cause of death was suicide due to asphyxia. However a more thorough investigation is to be conducted before a final determination is made.
Susan Schneider, wife of Robin Williams released a statement earlier today saying:
This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions”
Robin Williams was best known for his roles in such classic American films like Aladdin, Jumanji, Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook and Goodwill Hunting. He’s brought smiles to the faces of many children and adults all across the globe.
Many people are aware however that Williams struggled with depression and alcoholism. He had reported being sober for over 20 years but suffered a relapse late 2005 and checked into a rehab facility last month. We acknowledge his struggles but we choose to uplift his memory and legacy by remembering the joy he brought to countless lives.

Grammy award-winning artist and rising actress Rihanna has been casted as the lead character and voice of ‘Tip’ in the new animated movie, ‘Home’.
Her character will be the first ever American-African girl featured as the main protagonist in a DreamWorks animated film. Rihanna joins a star studded cast including vocals from Jennifer Lopez (who plays her character’s mom), Jim Parsons and legendary actor Steve Martin.
Let’s dive into the film.
One of the main characters Captain Smek, leader of the Boovs (voiced by Steve Martin) guides his group of homeless alien comrades through the galaxy searching for the perfect planet to inhabit.
They land on earth and immediately claim it as their new home. The Boov Klan waists no time upon arrival and proceed to work on adjusting the planet and its population.
In the mist of reorganization, Rihanna’s character “Tip” escapes and stumbles upon an exiled member of the Boov alien Klan—Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons)—and they embark on a wild and crazy adventure exploring more than their new fond friendship.
Home is set to be released later this year, on the 26th of November to be exact.
DreamWorks Animation has released a mini prequel for the new movie “Home”. View it below:
On Last Friday the English-language cable network NuvoTV, supported largely by Jennifer Lopez, dropped a whopping $226 million dollar bid and acquired FUSE TV over hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Combs and Lopez were among several bidders for the Madison Square Garden’s (MSG) Fuse cable-TV network, however it came down to a head to head match up between the former couple. As recently reported Combs made a bid of $200 million for the network and was looking to convert Fuse into his newly launched RevoltTV. That move would’ve allowed Combs to expand RevoltTV’s distribution and take advantage of over 70 million viewers that it would reach. Lopez and NuvoTV’s new acquisition will help in the networks aim at reaching more viewers in the American Latino market and beyond.
Music superstars, Jennifer “J.LO” Lopez and Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs were involved romantically, dating mostly in the late 90s to early 2000s [1999-2001]. It is evident that J.LO received more than a love connection from the mogul. No longer little “Jenny from the block”, Lopez has learned a thing or two from being in the entertainment industry. She has grown musically and even landed a prime time spot as a celebrity judge on 20th Century Fox’s hit show “American Idol”. J.Lo continues to expand her brand and is quickly advancing her empire. Salute to her and NuvoTV on landing this new deal!
Combs announced his name reversal last month in anticipation of his new album, MMM. Therefore he is now the artist formally known as Diddy.
Academy award winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o is lighting up more than the big screen this year. She has been granted the duty of being the new ambassadress for Lancôme. We are overjoyed for her and salute the Lancôme brand for celebrating her beauty in this newly formed partnership.
