Heroin likely played role in Geldof’s death, British probe reveals


Heroin likely contributed to the sudden death of British model and television personality Peaches Geldof, a British inquest revealed Thursday — a sad echo of the life of the 25-year-old’s mother, who died of a heroin overdose when Geldof was young.

Geldof, the second daughter of Live Aid organizer Bob Geldof and late television presenter Paula Yates, was found by her husband, Thomas Cohen, on April 7 in a spare bedroom at their home in Kent, southeast of London.

Meek Mill loses suit over Philly police stop


Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill lost his civil- rights case against city police Thursday over a 10-hour traffic stop that he called racially motivated.

Mill, who trying to catch a flight to Atlanta to launch his debut album, was instead handcuffed and detained on Halloween night 2012 with his entourage: an Atlantic Records executive, an off-duty police officer and his cousin.

“They ain’t from where I’m from,” Mill said softly of the jury after they reached their decision. “I [don’t] really expect them to understand what I go through.”
