Selena Gomez: Literally Drinking Herself to Death?!?

According to a bombshell new report and analysis, Selena Gomez is burying her Justin Bieber-related sorrow in alcohol these days.

And it may literally kill her.

Bieber, of course, stunned the free world over the weekend when he proposed to Hailey Baldwin.

The singer popped this major question to the model on Saturday Night in Las Vegas, despite only having dated her for a few months in 2016 and then again for a month or so this summer.

No matter, though, Bieber and Baldwin are engaged and fans around the globe are trying to come to grips with this reality.

They’re also wondering about Gomez.

How is she responding to this development with her (many times over) ex-boyfriend?

Is she truly angry, as one source claimed on Monday?

Or does she not care one bit, as another source claimed, because she grew sick and tired of Bieber’s lies and manipulations a long time ago, long before this news broke?

Hollywood Life wrote earlier in the week that Gomez was spotted at a bar in the Four Seasons hotel in New York City, throwing back shots.

So what, you’re probably asking.

She’s 25 years old and this wouldn’t be an abnormal reaction for anyone to have after a serious former lover gets engaged.

But here’s the thing: Selena Gomez has Lupus. It grew so serious last year that she had to get a kidney transplant.

As a result, alcohol can have an effect on the artist that it would not have on someone who does NOT have Lupus.

What kind of effect? A dangerous one.

Radar Online interviewed a rheumatologist named Dr. Robert Fafalak who spoke freely, for some reason, about someone he has never met and who he has never treated.

He risked his professional reputation to explain to this celebrity gossip site just what trouble Selena could be in if she continues this alleged habit.

“The fact that she’s taking what sounds like a very high amount of alcohol can definitely become threatening to not only making her lupus worse but therefore potentially threatening her life,” Fafalak said.

Good friend Francia Raisa donated a kidney to Gomez last year; that’s how severe a case of Lupus Gomez suffers from.

The condition makes her extra tired at times and has resulted in her need to take a break from touring and sometimes from the music business in general.

“Selena is playing with fire now and if she is, in fact, drinking again she will need to get help quick before it spirals out of control and kills her,” an insider tells Radar.

Fans have also been concerned about Selena’s mental state.

She entered rehab in the past for depression and anxiety and no one would blame her here if she relapsed in some way, shape or form.

But Bieber isn’t worth all that.

All we can really hope now is that Gomez realizes this and also realizes that alcohol never cures any problem; often times, in fact, it makes things worse.


Jax Taylor Goes OFF on Fan: You Wished Death on MY DOG?!

Jax Taylor isn’t exactly a favorite amongst Vanderpump Rules fans.

Taylor takes a lot of flak for his behavior on the show, and rightfully so — he’s pretty much effed up in every imaginable way over the course of the show’s six seasons.

After so many years of watching Jax cheat on Brittany Cartwright, stab his friends in the back, get way too close to his reiki therapist, and mix some of the worst cocktails in the West Hollywood area, it’s understandable that some folks might wish to give Jax a hard time on Twitter.

But while ragging on reality TV ne’er-do-wells is generally a pretty harmless way to pass the time on social media, viewers frequently go too far and wind up engaging in full-blown bullying.

Last week, Jax posted a photo (below) of himself and his two dogs.

In the caption he encouraged fans to sign a petition as part of an effort to outlaw the annual Lychee and Dog Meat Festival which is currently taking place in Yulin, China

As the name indicates, the festival is centered around the consumption of dog meat, and bringing an end to it has long been a passion project for Jax’s boss, Lisa Vanderpump.

“Everyone please take some time to go to @vanderpumpdogs and sign the petition against the Yulin dog meat festival,” Taylor wrote.

“Today the festival started up again even though many dogs are being saved many are still being sold and tortured. It’s extremely sad we can not let this continue. Please do what you can for our furry little friends. Hug your pets and have a blessed day.

Yes, contempt for Taylor is at such a high these days that even a post discouraging the consumption of dog meat elicits disdainful comments.

And this time, several users crossed the line in appalling fashion:

“I hope your dog gets hit by a car,” wrote one commenter.

Needless to say, Jax didn’t take too kindly to that remark:

“If you don’t like me on TV, that’s fine, I don’t care, but threatening harm or hate on other people or animals that don’t have a voice will not be accepted,” he replied.

“If you have the balls to cyberbully, threaten people or animals, I will blast you,” Taylor continued.

“This is your warning. That girl can not get away with stuff like this and it can’t be ignored or it will continue, the only way this will stop is if you report these awful human beings.”

Most fans who commented came to Jax’s defense, but astonishingly, there were others who sided with the original trash-talker.

“F-ck u and your dogs too,” wrote one follower.

“I hope they hit too and die a slow death.”

The hate mostly had to do with Jax’s behavior on the most recent season of Vanderpump, but some users took issue with the message of his post.

Many apparently felt that since Jax eats meat, it’s hypocritical of him to condemn others for eating dog meat.

We understand the argument, but the argument that you’re wishing death on someone’s dog because of your love for animals is a bit shaky.

Plus, Jax’s dad just died, so how about we all just agree to behave a bit more civilly toward him for the time being, mmm-kay?

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to remind yourself that for his many faults, Jax is a pretty entertaining guy.


Joe Jackson: Hospitalized with Cancer, On Verge of Death

Joe Jackson has been hospitalized with terminal cancer.

And, according to multiple outlets, the father of Michael and Janet Jackson will almost certainly never go home again.

Those close to the Jackson patriarch tell TMZ that loved ones are rushing to Jackson’s side, hoping to say goodbye to the controversial figure prior to his passing.

Joe’s wife, Katherine, is reportedly at the hospital and she has been joined there so far by a handful of kids and grandkids.

“Joe is going to die any day,” an insider says simply to Radar Online, adding of his wife:“Katherine doesn’t think he will live until Monday.”

This same source says Joe’s relatives “are already planning his funeral,” saying that Joe has made his wishes well known:

“Joe wants to be buried next to Michael. So he’ll be laid to rest in the mausoleum, and so will Katherine.

“The Jacksons have already bought multiple plots at Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles, have spoken to police and arranged car services.”

Joe’s health has been in decline now for a number of years, as he suffered a stroke in 2015 and has also been diagnosed with an aggressive form of colon cancer.

“He’s very very frail, he doesn’t have long,” Jermaine Jackson told The Daily Mail this morning. “The family needs to be by his bedside – that’s our only intention in his final days.”

Jackson, of course, is the father of the late Michael Jackson, as well as singer Janet Jackson and nine other kids.

This means he’s also the grandfather of Paris Jackson, the most prominent of Michael’s kids.

Joe was the manager of The Jackson 5 way back in the day, overseeing the group that made Michael into an icon via a rather heavy and scandal-filled hand.

He’s been accused on many occasions of abuse, infidelity and of fathering kids out of wedlock.

Specifically, Michael Jackson went on record before his own death of how Joe would force him to rehearse around the clock and how he was the victim of whippings and other forms of physical and emotional abuse.

Michael did also say that such strict parenting/managing contributed to his eventual success as an artist.

At this point, Joe is estranged from many of his sons and daughters.

A source close to Janet Jackson, for example, says that the star has been denied access to her father.

Joe’s daughter Joh’Vonnie Jackson, his sole child not with Katherine, has also reportedly not been allowed to see her father, despite their close relationship.

Joe does not want to be viewed in his current state, according to these reports.

His handlers have nee feuding with his family members over just who and who is not allowed inside Joe’s hospital room.

Jermaine confirms this account, saying that full access was really just granted on Thursday evening.

“No one knew what was going on – we shouldn’t have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this,” he told the aforementioned British newspaper, adding:

“We have been hurting. We were not being told where he was and couldn’t get the full picture. Even from the doctor. My mother was worried sick.

“It’s what any family would want, but some people around him think they know better…and they don’t.”

Joe Jackson is 89 years old.
