Lil Xan Announces Plans to Enter Rehab On One-Year Anniversary of Lil Peep’s Death

Lil Xan’s stage name might be inspired by his love of prescription medications, but it seems the death of several close friends has caused the rapper to realize that recreational pill-popping can have deadly consequences.

According to TMZ, Xan (nee Diego Leanos) has announced plans to enter rehab in order to seek help for an addiction to opioids.

It’s no coincidence that he reached the decision to enter treatment exactly one year after fellow emcee Lil Peep was found dead of an overdose.

And sadly, at the age of 22, Leanos has been impacted by the opioid crisis multiple times.

Rapper Mac Miller, who died of an overdose in September was a close friend and mentor of Xan’s.

Leanos has stated that he decided to get sober not long after learning of Miller’s passing.

He says he’s recently been hard at work on an album that he describes as a tribute to Miller.

But apparently, Leanos realizes that his health needs to take priority over his work, as he announced today that he’ll be putting that project on hold in order to focus on getting sober:

“I just dropped out of SoundCloud Uni to go to rehab, I leave in like 5 days and I couldn’t be happier with this choice,” Xan wrote on Instagram today.

“I love you guys for being so supportive and can’t wait too get back clean headed ready to Finish my album!”

The decision comes just days after Xan opened up about his ongoing substance abuse issues in an interview with TMZ:

“I relapsed, and that’s common … Any other addict would understand that sh-t just happens,” Leanos told the outlet.

“You just relapse. You don’t want to. It’s a process. You need treatment and help, and sometimes that doesn’t even help.”

Xan made it clear in recent interviews that while he is not as “strung out” as he’s been in the past, he has still not achieved the sobriety he aspires to:

“I’m not completely clean. Off Xanax, yes, but I’m still weaning off Norcos [a brand of codeine-based painkiller],” he said.

While fans have been supportive of Xan’s decision, many expressed hope that he would decide to check into rehab immediately, rather than waiting until next week.

We wish him all the best as he embarks upon the long road to recovery.

Audrey Roloff Reveals Anniversary Plans in Wake of Marriage Rumors

Former Little People, Big World stars Audrey and Jeremy Roloff have shared their next career move, but they’re not all business.

Right after Jeremy admitted that their marriage has been “tough” in recent months, Audrey has taken to social media to gush about their anniversary trip.

And yes, there are photos of these two lovebirds — and of Jer’s reaction to Auj’s gift!

“It was my turn to plan our anniversary this year,” Audrey reveals in a lengthy Instagram post.

“We started switching off because we like surprising each other,” she explains. “And it was just easier for managing our expectations.”

“I booked us a night (our first night away from Ember) at the The Sentinel Hotel where we stayed on our wedding night 4 years ago,” Audrey shares..

“I remember when we checked in on our wedding night,” she continues. “Jer and I flipped out because there was a typewriter in the entry way.”

You don’t need to take her word for it — here is Jeremy’s typewriter-fueled excitement face.

Jeremy Roloff Smiles at Anniversary Gift

“The typewriter holds a special meaning in our love story,” Auj explains. “Jeremy sent me hand typed letters throughout our years of long distance, he asked me to be his wife on the typewriter.”

“And,” she continues. “Our typewriter has been on display in every home we’ve ever lived in.”

Audrey says that having one on display serves the purpose of “reminding and inspiring us to write a love story worth reading.”

“I called ahead of time and made a request for a special anniversary message to be displayed on the typewriter upon our arrival,” Auj reveals.

The photo of Jer’s smiling face is his response to seeing the poem that was typed out on the device. Cute!

“We had the most enchanting evening in Portland,” Auj says. “And I finally got to experience the Multnomah Whiskey Library.”

“Of course we ended the evening reading our anniversary letters,” Audrey continues. “The ones we wrote to each other on our anniversary last year.”

“It’s our favorite anniversary tradition,” she shares.

Naturally, Audrey plugs their marriage blog: “You can read about some of our other favorites in our most recent post on @beating50.”

The name, of course, refers to their desire to beat the odds that suggest that at least half of all couples get divorced.

“Jer and I celebrate our anniversary as if it’s a national holiday,” Auj gushes.

She says: “We are firm believers that love, of all things, should especially be celebrated.”

“So no matter how inconvienent,” she writes. “We are inentional about carve out time on September 20th to reminisce the past year, dream for the future, and recommit to the promises made on our wedding day.”

“And,” Auj continues. “As our favorite quote from our favorite book says… ‘If it’s half as good as the half we’ve known, here’s Hail! to the rest of the road.'”

“Happy anniversary Farmer,” Audrey says. “Let’s keep living”

As we mentioned, on their actual anniversary of September 20, Jeremy wrote a tribute to his wife and marriage but made an admission.

“These have been tough months recently,” Jer wrote. “But hard work always pays off.”

He gushed: “I love you and I love writing a love story with you.”

Whatever their recent trials, whether it’s finding out how to stay afloat without the show, dealing with family drama, Auj’s alleged feud with Jeremy’s brother, or hidden marital squabbles, things seem okay for them.

It’s great that they’re celebrating their anniversary like this — but we’re sure that they’re looking forward to being reunited with precious baby Ember.


Becca Kufrin: STILL Not Making Wedding Plans with Garrett Yrigoyen

We’re all entitled to make catastrophic, life-altering choices, and Becca Kufrin made hers. His name is Garrett Yrigoyen.

While debate rages over whether Becca and Garrett will really marry, they are still engaged.

And now Becca has come forward to share what that is like, and what the two have planned for the future.

In the new issue of Us Weekly, Becca Kufrin gushes about her engagement to Garrett Yrigoyen.

Becca says that “life has been a fun adventure” with Garrett by her side.

She admits that this (new) engagement has been “a huge adjustment” right after The Bachelorette and Arie before that and The Bachelor before that.

Just being normal has been wonderful,” Becca says.

“We were just so ready for the show to be done airing,” Becca reveals. “Where we could finally be out in public.

Recently, Becca and Garrett have been visiting Becca’s friends and family in Minnesota.

Garrett takes his turn to gush, saying that “her friends are a lot of fun.”

He shares that among their activities has been a Minnesota Twins game, the state fair, and a fishing trip on the Mississippi River.

“I caught my first walleye and smallmouth bass,” Garrett shares with pride. “It was fun.”

Garrett is such an avid fisherman that, though we don’t have a photo of that moment, it’s not difficult to find a fish photo.

Becca says that her hometown has welcomed her fiancee “with open arms.”

Sometimes, even a controversial man can find acceptance if he has a popular, likable woman on his arm.

But while the two have enjoyed visiting loved ones, they haven’t picked a spot to settle down.

I don’t want to make a decision without exploring our options,” Becca explains.

That is a very sensible attitude!

The couple has also spent time Garrett’s hometown of Reno, Nevada.

And the two of them have discussed the idea of a potential move to L.A.

“I’m hoping by November or December we’ll have nailed down a place,” Becca admits.

That said, deciding on a place to live is not the same thing as making wedding plans.:

As Becca explains: “We really are still getting to know each other.”

It’s smart of her to be cautious. Clearly, from what she saw on The Bachelorette, she would never have guessed Garrett’s bigoted social media history.

As many entertainment news outlets pointed out when Garrett’s Instagram scandal broke, it wasn’t that he liked “conservative” posts contrary to Becca’s views.

The posts that he had “liked” on Instagram were outside of the bounds of decency. The posts were racist, transphobic, and misogynistic — among other things.

Garrett has apologised (for getting caught), but fans hope that Becca can come to understand who he truly is before it’s too late for them both to find partners compatible with their respective values.

Becca received a lot of sympathy from the Bachelor Nation after Arie Luyendyk Jr. humiliated her on television. A lot of fans feel for her and hope that she finds a better, less problematic man.

Others hope that Garrett really has changed his tune.


Kanye West & Kim Kardashian “On the Brink of Divorce,” Halting Plans For Fourth Child [Report]

For weeks now, we’ve been hearing rumors that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning to welcome a fourth child.

Sources claim the iconic couple has one embryo remaining and they’ve been hoping to welcome another child via surrogate sometime in the next year.

Unfortunately, it seems those plans may now be on hold indefinitely due to what sources describe as growing tension in Kim and Kanye’s marriage. 

“Kim and Kanye have been on the brink of divorce numerous times, but Kim only has one embryo, a boy, left and she’s not letting it go to waste,” an insider tells In Touch Weekly.

“Having another baby has become an obsession for Kim,” the source adds.

“It’s all she thinks about day and night. If she had to choose between the two, she’d go for the baby over her husband.” 

Unfortunately, it seems Kim may have to pull the trigger on that decision very soon, as Kanye reportedly has no interest in coming up with another eccentric baby name:

“He doesn’t want another child at this point,” the insider claims.

“He loves his kids, but he’s grown distant from Kim,” 

Sources say that Kim does not suspect that there’s another woman in Kanye’s life, but does feel as though she’s been “dumped” in favor of her husband’s many passions, including his music and fashion line.

“She’s tired of having to deal with his insane ego and playing his style muse,” the source said. “She considers Kanye her baby-maker at this point.” 

Yes, it seems Kanye has been reduced to sperm-donor status in Kim’s eyes.

And the insider claims she’s not terribly torn up about demoting her egomaniacal husband.

“Kim just wants another baby. Motherhood is the best thing that’s happened to her,” the source explains.

“It’s almost like she’s looking forward to being a single mom.”

Well, with the amount of time Kanye spends recording 5-track “albums” in Wyoming and serving as creative director for the Pornhub Awards, Kim certainly has plenty of experience being on her own.

As for Kanye, we’re sure he’ll be fine.

Dude has plenty of passion projects and voices inside his head to keep him company.

Just kidding, Yeezy!

Demi Lovato Plans to End Her Toxic Friendships in Order to Recover

On Sunday, Demi Lovato released her first statement in the aftermath of her hospitalization for a devastating overdose.

Though we know that Demi has agreed to enter rehab, she is also taking additional steps to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.

A huge part of that is severing ties with toxic people in her life — even if they’re her own blood relatives.

According to TMZ, Demi Lovato’s team is going to help her weed out negative or toxic influences in her life that made it so easy for her to relapse after six years of sobriety.

That means that, after she leaves rehab, they’re going to help her sever ties with people — including friends of hers.

Specifically, they’re looking to exclude the real party animals and those who use drugs.

They’re also seeking to cut her off from “yes friends.”

That is, friends who will just say yes to anything because it’s in their nature or because she’s Demi. Separating celebrities from enablers can be a tricky business.

The team’s broad mandate for ending some of these perilous relationships has some people in mind in particular.

They apparently intend to cut her off from one toxic friend in particular — though we can only speculate as to which friend that might be.

(Some would say that, since Demi was partying with G-Eazy following her relapse and he’s been heavily associated with drugs, that smart money is on him)

What’s more is that Demi’s team intends to sever her relationship with a distant relative.

It sounds like they mean business.

But while Demi’s team held a meeting this week to determine who should be cut off and how, ultimately, this will all be up to Demi.

All that they can do is advise.

Sources say that the team is going to suggest to Demi that she get a new phone number and only give it out to the people whom she trusts the most.

After all, it doesn’t do much good to cut people out of her life physically if they can still reach her — or she can still reach them — at any given moment.

Addiction is an illness that is always lurking and ready for just the right opportunity. Part of recovery is avoiding the most dangerous opportunities.

As we previously reported, plans are already set up for Demi to enter a live-in rehab facility when she exits the hospital.

The plan is for her to have zero down-time to recover at home before she goes to rehab — which is probably smart.

It is not yet known where her rehab facility will be (which is totally fine — that’s her business!), though it is believed that she probably won’t do rehab in L.A. as there are too many triggers for her there.

At present, we don’t even know if she’ll be recovering in California.

What we do know is that her family’s intention is for her to be able to attend a facility that can accommodate a huge star without her standing out too much. Fortunately, there are places that specialize in just that.

Demi Lovato’s guitarist blamed her friends for her overdose, castigating anyone who was with her that night.

This was followed by Demi’s friends receiving death threats — even those of them who had not been with her.

Demi Lovato’s BFF Dani Vitale had to plead for the death threats to stop. Yes, Demi had been celebrating her birthday with her hours earlier. But no, she had not been with her for the overdose.

We hope that fans will remember that they can support Demi without harassing or threatening the lives of those who love her.

Everyone just wants Demi to be okay.
