A lot of sadness dominated this week in celebrity news: An actress on a TV classic unexpected died. An actor on a modern hit show filed for divorce. And a former Disney star committed suicide. It was also hard to escape the tragic news involving former "The Bachelor" star Chris Soules. The Iowa farmer was arrested on April 24 for his involvement in a fatal accident. Police reports indicate Chris was driving his truck when he slammed into a man driving a tractor, sending it into a ditch. The man, farmer Kenneth Mosher, died. Chris tended to him and called 911, but cops say he fled the scene before law enforcement arrived. He was later arrested at his home, several hours after the fatal accident (police had to get a search warrant to enter the home and bring him in). On April 25, he was released from jail after a judge set a $10,000 cash-only bond. There is speculation that he could have been intoxicated, but he was not charged with DUI. On April 27, his lawyers issued a statement explaining that Chris "acted reasonably and did everything in his power to provide aid to Mr. Mosher." As of now, he's only been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident, which is a felony.

First post-robbery interview
Kim Kardashian West finally gave her first interview since she was bound, gagged and robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016. She had previously only spoken about it on her reality TV show. While tearing up during an April 27 chat with Ellen DeGeneres, Kim said said the robbery taught her a lesson. "I'm such a different person. I, um… I don't want to start crying anymore. It was meant to happen to me," she said. "I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things. It was probably no secret, and you see it on the show — I was being flashy and I was definitely materialistic before."

"Rare and potentially deadly" infection
Elton John will be recovering for several weeks after suffering a "harmful and unusual bacterial infection." The singer contracted the infection in South America and grew "violently ill" during a plane ride home. He was hospitalized for two days. On April 24, it was revealed that Elton was forced to cancel all of his shows through May 6 because of the medical issue. His rep said, "Infections of this nature are rare and potentially deadly. Thankfully, Elton's medical team identified this quickly and treated it successfully. He is expected to make a full and complete recovery."
"Dancing With the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy was supposed to make an appearance on "Good Morning America" on April 25 to talk about partner Heather Morris's surprise elimination, but he wasn't there because of a "personal emergency." It turns out someone tried to break into his and Peta Murgatroyd's home. "At like 2:20 a.m., I wake up to full-out knocking," Maks told Maria Menounos. "I come down, there's cops and they're like, 'There's a dude outside that's claiming this is his house.' I'm like, 'Wait, what?' It was pretty wild. But I guess it's an ongoing thing with the ex-owner of this house who — by the way, talk about Hollywood — used to be some rock singer or rock band frontman or something."
Former "Happy Days" child star Erin Moran likely died from complications of stage 4 cancer, it was revealed on April 24. The actress was found dead in her home on April 22.

She was reportedly being fed and kept alive via a gastrointestinal tube in her throat in her final days.
Two years of silence
Caitlyn Jenner and Khloe Kardashian are not keeping up with each other. During a SiriusXM Town Hall interview with Andy Cohen, Caitlyn said it's been "like two years" since she and her former step-daughter have spoken. "She doesn't want to talk to me… That's sad. I was very, very close to Khloe, I mean, I had 23 years of raising her. I met Khloe when she was 5 years old." However, that's not entirely true. On a recent episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," Khloe and Caitlyn had a heart-to-heart about their strained relationship.
