David Spade: Family coming together after Kate Spade’s death

LOS ANGELES

Just a month after funeral services for his sister-in-law, comic-actor David Spade was back to business, promoting his new movie. But he also offered a few words about his family tragedy.

Fashion designer Kate Spade was married to David’s brother, entrepreneur Andy Spade. Kate Spade killed herself in June. In an interview, David Spade said “everyone’s pulling it together.” He added: “I think we’re getting in the best place we can at this point.”

Less than three weeks after Spade’s death, her father, Earl Brosnahan, died at age 89 – the day before his daughter’s funeral.

Shortly after his wife’s death, Andy Spade released a statement noting she had “suffered from depression and anxiety.” David Spade has made a $100,000 donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, which provides education and support for families impacted by the disease.

Comic-Con gets a look at Spider-Man spinoff

SAN DIEGO

Director Ruben Fleischer says that there aren’t really any heroes in the superhero movie “Venom,” who is a grittier, more violent and more complicated character than his Marvel brethren.

Comic-Con attendees got a look at footage from the upcoming Spider-Man spinoff Friday and heard from stars Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed as well.

Hardy plays Eddie Brock and the alien symbiote Venom. The actor says he thinks Venom is the coolest superhero.

Fleischer also teased the possibility of an eventual face-off between Spider-Man and Venom. The film hits theaters in October.

Sony Pictures also showed an extended trailer for the animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” out in December, which focuses on Miles Morales learning the spidey ropes from a middle-age Peter Parker.

Migos’ Offset arrested on felony gun charges

JONESBORO, Ga.

Offset of the hip-hop group Migos is facing two felony gun charges after he and his bodyguard were pulled over outside Atlanta.

Clayton County Police Sgt. Ashanti Marbury tells WXIA-TV that an officer pulled over a Porsche 911 Friday afternoon for failing to maintain its lane.

Police say Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, was behind the wheel.

Police say the vehicle smelled of marijuana, prompting authorities to search the car and find three guns and less than an ounce of marijuana.

The 26-year-old is on probation for a 2015 arrest on drugs and weapons charges. He is now charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a weapon during a crime. He also faces misdemeanor charges for marijuana possession and making an improper lane change.

It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
