Cory Monteith Died from a Combination of Heroin and AlcoholS

The British Columbia coroners have completed their toxocological report and found that Cory Monteith passed away due to a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol.

The British Columbia Coroners Service says an autopsy and toxicological analysis show that the 31-year-old "Glee" star died on from a "mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol."

Monteith's body was discovered by staffers at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver, Canada on July 13.

Monteith had struggled with addiction for years and had been to rehab earlier this year.

All the condolences in the world to his friends, family, and fans. Meanwhile, Lea Michele is reportedly grieving with Monteith's family, and continues to request privacy.

"Since Cory's passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them. They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory's family."

Emma Roberts was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly bloodying her boyfriend's nose and also possibly biting him.

22-year-old Emma — Eric Roberts' daughter and Julia Roberts' niece — was taken into custody early July 7 in Montreal after getting in an altercation with Peters ... who stars in "American Horror Story."

According to Montreal law enforcement sources ... someone called police to report a fight in Evan and Emma's hotel room.

We're told when cops arrived ... they observed Evan with a bloody nose. Emma was immediately arrested. One law enforcement source tells us Evan also had a bite mark.

Emma was released hours later because 26-year-old Evan did not want to press charges.

Sources close to Emma tell TMZ ... Emma and Evan were hitting each other and she was arrested because he had obvious physical injuries. The sources deny Emma bit Evan.

Apparently everything's fine now, according to everyone involved. Hey, men and women, don't hit and bite each other. Allegedly. [TMZ]

Bryan Cranston told GQ a super alarming story about one time when he fantasized about murdering a violent and abusive ex-girlfriend.

"I had one girlfriend I wanted to kill," the Argo star admits, sharing how he once dated an unstable drug addict who stalked him and left messages threatening to kill him on his answering machine.

"I envisioned myself killing her," he continues. "It was so clear. My apartment had a brick wall on one side, and I envisioned opening the door, grabbing her by the hair, dragging her inside, and shoving her head into that brick wall until brain matter was dripping down the sides of it. Then I shuddered and realized how clearly I saw that happening. And I called the police because I was so afraid. I was temporarily insane—capable of doing tremendous damage to her and to myself."

He doesn't say exactly what "caused" the "temporary insanity," so I don't really know what the moral of this story is supposed to be. So, I guess, just FUCKING YEESH. [E!]

If you haven't read Questlove's take on the George Zimmerman verdict, it's extremely worth it.

I'm in scenarios all the time in which primitive, exotic-looking me — six-foot-two, 300 pounds, uncivilized Afro, for starters — finds himself in places where people who look like me aren't normally found. I mean, what can I do? I have to be somewhere on Earth, correct? In the beginning — let's say 2002, when the gates of "Hey, Ahmir, would you like to come to [swanky elitist place]?" opened — I'd say "no," mostly because it's been hammered in my DNA to not "rock the boat," which means not making "certain people" feel uncomfortable.

I mean, that is a crazy way to live. Seriously, imagine a life in which you think of other people's safety and comfort first, before your own. You're programmed and taught that from the gate. It's like the opposite of entitlement.

"I have to be somewhere on Earth, correct?" Love feelings/cry feelings. [NYMag]
