If you thought the first Michael Jackson death photo that prosecutors rolled out in the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray was hard to take, they showed another one yesterday. And in this one, Michael was naked. It was shown during the testimony of forensic pathologist Christopher Rogers. He's the man who initially determined that Michael died from an overdose of propofol. The photo, in which Michael's private area was blacked out, showed the remnants of an IV needle and medical tape on his arm. Michael's mother Katherine and sister Rebbie were not in the courtroom when the photo was shown. Prosecutors warned them about it ahead of time, and they decided to skip that part of the trial. Rogers testified that he believes Dr. Murray administered the fatal dose of propofol, because it was improbable that Michael could have done it in the two minutes Dr. Murray was away from his bedside. He also said that no propofol was found in Michael's stomach or esophagus, which means Michael didn't drink it, as the defense has suggested. And the trial continues...
"Us Weekly" scored the first interview with Ashton Kutcher's alleged mistress Sara Leal. In case there was any doubt, she does indeed claim she slept with Ashton on September 24th. Twice. Sara says he, "just came up and kissed me" which led to her and another girl being naked in a hot tub with Ashton on his hotel room balcony. Ashton told her that he and Demi Moore were separated. She believed him and pretty soon she was in his bedroom. She says, "He lost his towel and I took my robe off. Then we had sex." So how was it? She says, "He was good. It wasn't weird or perverted." It may have been good, but it wasn't safe. She claims Ashton didn't wear a condom. After getting down twice, they talked about astrology, religion, love and even politics.
Lil Wayne is a well-renowned fan of cough syrup cocktails. And now, he says he did it because he was sick. Not "sick" as in he actually had a cough, but "sick" as in a substance abuse problem. This revelation comes in a bizarre, documentary-style video of Wayne that just surfaced online. Wayne says he first, "picked up the cup" when he heard Pimp C rapping about it and he says it was a part of a "culture" that he emulated. He also said he never did it to be cool. But apparently, Wayne hasn't triumphed over his sickness yet because he appears to be sippin' on Sizzurp in the video.
