Blind Item #7

Before this permanent A list singer who loved singing about sex died back in the day, he had literally sold every piece of furniture and fixtures from his home to buy drugs. There was literally nothing of value left in the house.

Prince

Doesn't say FB but I will say GM he had a nasty Meth habit. Or Prince

Jim Morrison?

Do Tell said...

Not Prince, not George Michael, both died recently and neither were close to broke.

Do Tell said...

Marvin Gaye?

Tricia13 said...

Though as one of my favorites,to be fair he sang about a lot of things- beautiful poet

Marvin Gaye

marvin gaye, lets get it on, known drug problem

sandybrook said...

I also think it was Marvin, he had serious issues and remember he was fighting with his father when his father killed him.

Khaleesi said...

My guess was Marvin Gaye also. @americanpanda - don't forget Sexual Healing!

krk67 said...

Rick James... massive crack problem and TONS of songs about sex.

correy said...

Marvin Gaye's passing & the details behind them were well known. The talent he displayed was overshadowed by his demons that he couldn't overcome.

Moose said...

Gaye was living with his parents (at least his father) in LA prior to his death. I think this is Rick James, whop'd be more likely to be living in squalor doing drugs all day at the time of his death.

Saintpat said...

Yes, Marvin Gaye had moved into his parrents’ home that he had bought for them 10 years earlier.

The argument that led to his death was over a homeowners insurance policy the father had just taken out. If there was money to buy an insurance policy, it’s doubtful that he would have done that while simulaneously Marvin was selling off all the furnishings.

And accounts say Marvin and his mother were sitting on Marvin’s bed in his bedroom when the fight started. The father also had a gun Marvin had bought him months earlier as a Christmas present. So there were beds and a gun in the house.

Marvin Gaye or Rick James. I thought of Marvin first, but @Moose has a point...sounds more like Rick James. Cocaine is a helluva drug.

EddyWouldRide said...

Micheal Hutchence?

americanpanda said...

@Khaleesi oh yes cant forget that one haha

modsquad said...

James Brown.

Do Tell said...

Marvin Gaye was also a drug addict and was doing coke on the regular at the end of his life.

Boo Hearne said...

Sounds more like Rick James.

Boldblonde said...

George Michael. His boyfriend is spending Christmas at the house they shared.

Count Jerkula said...

James Brown

Sd Auntie said...

Rick James makes sense. Prison stint and blew his money on hoes and blow. Cried when I heard about Marvin. His songs are timeless with that sweet soothing voice. Wish he would have gotten help.

Barry White or Rick James

M Styles said...

NOT GEORGE MICHAEL.
He died with a lot of money, his house was beautiful and his sister inherited it.
George Michael was also the only one of the lot to die from natural causes with NO DRUGS in his system, he died from heart failure, give the guy a break.
Prince, MJ both friggin junkies.

Itttt said...

Heart failure = Complications from AIDS.

Missyrocks53 said...

I'm thinking Barry White or going really far back to Teddy Pendergrass.

Missyrocks53 said...

Or Rick James, bitch!

CJ said...

Marvin Gaye ftw. Yes, cocaine is a helluva drug, completely destroying the addict's interpersonal relationships. So while this blind has to be Marvin IMO, there are lots of similar cases: Rick James, Ike Turner, James Brown and, although he's still alive, Sly Stone.

BTW, Rick James and Ike Turner once made a record together and it sounds just like you would expect. The best-known track is called Love Gravy, and was used in an episode of South Park.

Barry White

CJ said...

I forgot -- while Rick James is well-known,I don't think he rates as a "permanent A-list singer". Marvin Gaye does.

SW said...

Died of autoerotic asphyxiation. No drugs as I recall.

Unknown said...

Rick James?

Kendrick Schroder said...

Marvin Gaye, house was in Hidden Hills.

T said...

NOT Prince, he did not die back in the day...

Henriette said...

"I'm Rick James, Bitch."
