considering scientology regards psychiatry pretty much to blame for the Holocaust (as well as all the world’s problems) I doubt they’d be too pleased to see one of their celeb poster boys using it’s services

SKRILLEX ON HIS SCIENTOLOGY UPBRINGING: “THOSE ARE MY HOMEYS”

In Rolling Stone‘s new cover story, Skrillex frankly addresses his Scientology upbringing in the mainstream media for the first time. And although we learn the dubstep poster boy doesn’t consider himself a Scientologist like his parents, he still gets annoyed when the church’s followers are “attacked in the press” for one simple reason: “Those are my homeys.”

As the son of Scientologists, a young Sonny Moore went to an L.A. arts academy based on the teaching tenets of L. Ron Hubbard, the church’s founder. Moore took several Scientology courses before leaving home at age 16 and throwing himself into punk culture, a decision his parents supported.

Now 26 years old, the EDM megastar doesn’t outright identify as a member of the church, but he’s hardly sworn off the contentious belief system: “There’s some fundamentals that were really positive that will always stick with me,” Skrillex told Rolling Stone. As for his current spiritual beliefs, he uses phrases like “searching nature” and “my own journey” when pressed on the subject.

Regarding the world’s most famous Scientologist, Skrillex told Rolling Stone the media is too quick to salivate over negative Scientology-related stories: “Tom Cruise jumps on a couch, says some sh-t… [but] I feel there are so many other actors and figureheads—whether they’re doing drugs or whatever—that are doing a lot more negative things [and] don’t get as much flak.

“The one thing about Scientology is [that] the people that are in it, that are doing it, are people of good will, man,” Skrillex explained of the belief system that includes Will SmithBeck and numerous other A-list stars. “Those are my homeys. Those are people I grew up with.”

Drug & Booze Tragedy: ‘True Blood’ Star Nelsan Ellis’ Family Reveals Addiction Led To Death

The ‘True Blood’ star unexpectedly died aged only 39.

Nelsan Ellis died over the weekend, and now the former True Bloodstar’s family is coming forward with the devastating details behind the 39-year-old’s death.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the star unexpectedly passed away on Saturday due to a heart attack stemming from alcohol withdrawal difficulties. Ellis, who played flamboyant Lafayette Reynolds on the hit HBO vampire show, struggled with drug and alcohol abuse for the several years leading up to his death.

And now, in an effort to bring awareness to the seriousness of addiction, the late actor’s family has released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, via his manager Emily Gerson Saines:

“Nelsan’s father has bravely agreed for me to share the circumstances of Nelsan’s heart failure. Nelsan has suffered with drug and alcohol abuse for years. After many stints in rehab, Nelsan attempted to withdraw from alcohol on his own. According to his father, during his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control.

On the morning of Saturday July 8th, after four days in Woodhull Hospital, Nelsan was pronounced dead. Nelsan was a gentle, generous and kind soul. He was a father, a son, a grandson, a brother, a nephew, and a great friend to those that were lucky enough to know him. Nelsan was ashamed of his addiction and thus was reluctant to talk about it during his life. His family, however, believes that in death he would want his life to serve as a cautionary tale in an attempt to help others.”

Nelsan Ellis is survived by his grandmother, Alex Brown,, his father, Tommie Lee Thompson, and his son, Breon Ellis, as well as four sisters and three brothers. May he rest in peace.

Off topic here but I just read where the Actor from True Blood, Nelson Ellis, died today at the age of 39. His father said he tried to quit his alcohol addiction and withdrawals by himself without doctors help. I happen to love his actor and was sad to hear of his death. The reason I’m bringing this up is a few years ago i saw this actor, on stage, at The Scientology Celebrity Center Christmas Show. I was quite surprised to see him there. I’m wondering if he was a “Closet Scientologist”? There are some actors who do not want to ruin their acting careers by coming out as a member of this cult. I saw a number of them coming and going down the secret staircases into the garage so not to be seen by the public. I wonder if he was doing their Purif, drug rundown, etc in order to stop alcohol/drugs? I personally know that Scientology DOES NOT accept Alcoholism or drug addiction as a disease that needs to be treated by medical means. I know this Because I was an alcoholic the entire time I was in this group (25 years) and attempted to get clean and sober with their help (3 Purifs and the same amount of drug counseling) Of course it didn’t work for any length of time and I finally left that crazy group. Shortly after leaving I had a Declared Ex=Scientology Auditor tell me that AA would help me. I took her advice and I’m now clean and sober for five years (due to the AA program which worked for me). Just saying and wondering. I’m so sorry he didn’t find help to be this terrible disease.

After two years, many people have wondered which HBO celebrity I hinted at who was involved with the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre in Hollywood? Around 2010/2011 I did the Purification Program alongside an actor from the hit television show True Blood. This person, by being involved in Scientology, was supporting (by association) the abuses within that very organization. I wanted to spill the tea and inform others of who this person is. Hopefully they are no longer taking dangerous Scientology services!

The actor died Saturday of heart failure due to alcohol withdrawal complications, the family said. “Nelsan was a gentle, generous and kind soul.”

Nelsan Ellis, the actor who starred on HBO’s True Blood as the fan-favorite Lafayette Reynolds, struggled with drug and alcohol abuse for years. That battle ultimately cost the 39-year-old his life.

Now, days after his death, Ellis’ family agreed to release to The Hollywood Reporter, throughhis manager Emily Gerson Saines, the exact circumstances around the beloved actor’s passing. Ellis died Saturday of heart failure. His death was met with a massive outpouring from friends and fans around the world, who were shocked and heartbroken over the news.

In an effort to help others who may be struggling with the same addictions that afflicted Ellis, his family released the following via Saines to THR:

Nelsan’s father has bravely agreed for me to share the circumstances of Nelsan’s heart failure. Nelsan has suffered with drug and alcohol abuse for years. After many stints in rehab, Nelsan attempted to withdraw from alcohol on his own. According to his father, during his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control.

On the morning of Saturday July 8th, after four days in Woodhull Hospital, Nelsan was pronounced dead. Nelsan was a gentle, generous and kind soul. He was a father, a son, a grandson, a brother, a nephew, and a great friend to those that were lucky enough to know him. Nelsan was ashamed of his addiction and thus was reluctant to talk about it during his life. His family, however, believes that in death he would want his life to serve as a cautionary tale in an attempt to help others.

Ellis was born in Harvey, Illinois. He attended Thorn Ridge High School in Dolton, and later attended Oxford University and Columbia College in Chicago before graduating from the famed Juilliard School.

Ellis appeared in numerous film and TV shows, including The SoloistThe ButlerGet on Up and Elementary.

The character Lafayette was killed off fairly early on in the books, The Southern Vampire Mysteries. But True Blood fans loved Ellis’ portrayal so much, the character survived and was a regular on the series.

“We were extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Nelsan Ellis,” HBO said in a statement on Saturday. “Nelsan was a longtime member of the HBO family whose groundbreaking portrayal of Lafayette will be remembered fondly within the overall legacy of True Blood. Nelsan will be dearly missed by his fans and all of us at HBO.”

Said True Blood creator Alan Ball: “Nelsan was a singular talent whose creativity never ceased to amaze me. Working with him was a privilege.”

Ellis is survived by his grandmother, Alex Brown; his father, Tommie Lee Thompson; and his son, Breon Ellis. He is also survived by his siblings Lakeeia Thomson, Tommie Lee Thompson, Babon Ellis, Maurice Turne, Tianna Thompson, Shaentika Beard and Yvonne Ellis and aunt Tartheaia Thompson.

Jim Carrey Ain’t Paying For Shit

The parents of Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend who killed herself in a fit of depression have amended their civil suit against Jim Carrey to include the fact he failed to pay for their daughter’s funeral expenses as he promised.

Cathriona White’s parent claim that Carrey was the man who precipitated their daughter’s suicide, by giving her three STDs, dumping her, and providing her access to the pharmaceuticals she used to OD. White ultimately consumed a cocktail of Ambien, a high blood pressure med, and Oxy. She left a note:

“I’ve spent 3 days now in disbelief that you’re not here. I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don’t have the will this time. I’m sorry you felt I wasn’t there for you. I tried to give you my best part.”

Then she left some practical notes about her burial and possessions. Very Irish.

The painkillers White downed were prescribed to Carrey under his celebrity pharmaceutical pseudonym, Arthur King. You may recall from the Anna Nicole Smith case, famous people don’t buy drugs under their own name. Or prostitutes. Save for Charlie Sheen, and you see how that wound up.

Carrey’s reps contend that White was a routinely depressed women and it’s not Carrey’s fault she took the breakup so hard. Also, she either purloined his pills or he simply forgot them when they broke-up. Either way, not his fault she tossed them back. The STDs, nobody’dtalking about so much. Save for the tabloid world. It’s a big SEO winner. Plus three is fairly impressive. Imagine that third date disclaimer.

According to reports, Carrey pulled back on his funeral expense promise when he learned that White’s parents owned the funeral parlor in Ireland that hosted their daughters interment. Convenient if true. Plus, they are kind of suing him for big cash for helping to cause their daughter’s death.

There’s no way for Carrey to come out of this situation looking like anything but a shit. That’s probably built in. Now he’s working on denying his ex-girlfriend’s parents from shaking him down. You can’t really sue for herpes by proxy. Or for the fact your daughter was madly in love with Jim Carrey. Charlie Sheen’s ex’s have The AIDS, but they’re still kicking.
