Much more news has broken since the death of “Sons of Anarchy” actor Johnny Lewis, including some information on what might have led to his insane actions.

The Huffington Post is reporting that Lewis, who allegedly killed his landlady and her cat before falling off a roof to his death, may have been high on a new synthetic drug known as 2C-I and dubbed “Smiles.”

According to CBS News, “Smiles” are part of a drug class known as phenethylamines, which have chemical substitutions that cause users to exhibit euphoric, psychedelic and introspective effects. Dr. Lewis S. Nelson, professor of emergency medicine in the division of medical toxicology at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, explained:

“Substituted amphetamine can produce adverse effects such as heart attacks and strokes, even at low doses…You ideally want to have a clean, safe high, but often you get very confused, altered and your decision-making is flawed.”

LiveScience reported that the drug has been implicated in the deaths of two teens, including one 17-year-old who began hyperventilating and hitting his head against the ground under its influence.

Lewis, who was reportedly bipolar, apparently suffered a “psychotic break” after an incident earlier this year, and began to “self-medicate” to deal with his problem.  The Hollywood Reporter noted that he had a history of assault, including a January 3rd break in to a Northridge home, where he attacked two men after they asked him to leave, and a February 10th assault charge for reportedly striking a man outside a yogurt shop.

Records also show that Lewis was ordered by the courts to enter a 30-day treatment program back in May and had ties to the Church Of Scientology, where his father tried to help him get some sort of treatment.

Lewis was found dead outside a Los Feliz home on Wednesday.  “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter released a statement saying that while he was not shocked by Lewis’ death, he was “deeply sorry that an innocent life had to be thrown into his destructive path.” Actress Shannon Woodward also tweeted that Lewis was “very, very ill” and “his actions were a despicable result of that. It was not who he was.”

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

on

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!

Caught On Tape

Former Law And Order Actress Representing Herself In Court? Diane Neal Claims Her Attorneys In Abuse Case Dropped Her, Leaving Her To Fend For Herself

Published

on

In an emotional, now deleted instagram post, actress Diane Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her – leaving the actress who once played assistant district attorney Casey Nowak to try her hand at being an attorney in real life.

Neal has been embroiled in a vicious legal battle that has spanned more than two years. It began when Neal filed a lawsuit alleging her ex, magician JB Benn, was a “manipulative and maniacal fraudster,” who had “defrauded her of millions” and “violently inflicted emotional distress,” according to The Daily Beast. She claims Benn subjected her to “a campaign of isolation, terror and (physical and sexual) assault, and destroyed her reputation.” She also claims he once cut her dogs throat. In turn, Benn has a lawsuit against Neal, claiming she owes him money for property they shared, and that she frequently threatened him. Part of his case: a damning recording in which the female voice, which he claims is Neal, threatens him and his dog. Listen to that tape HERE. It’s intense.

The truth is, the story is so full of battling accusations that it’s probably best to read the FULL list chronicled in this Oxygen article.

But today, in an emotional instagram post which she later deleted, (but copies have which have been retained and posted) a dramatic turn. Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her with no warning.

She speaks directly to her camera phone, saying, “So this is my version of hell. And there he is walking right past me right there” she says, referencing a man whose face cannot be seen. “So, I have been put in a situation by my own attorneys who decided to drop me as a client yesterday afternoon with absolutely no warning, wherein I have to represent myself in court. Because this is what happens to victims of abuse. My attorney yesterday accused me of having an inappropriate relation with (unintelligible**), which is not at all even remotely, a thousand times not true. Has done all kinds of things and … saying it was my fault for being abused. So wish me luck. It’s terrifying, but I am doing this for every woman who can’t do it for themselves. I stand for all of us.”

**please note that the words here were difficult to make out. We have our interpretations but don’t want to speculate without confirmation.

It’s unclear what the nature of the current court hearing is intended to cover today.
