More details are emerging surrounding the passing of Aaron Carter. A video shows that the singer's off-and-on fiancée was worried about Aaron in the days leading up to his death at 34. The week before he died, Aaron was posting a livestream video when Melanie Martin texted him, "You're going to die." The context of the message isn't known, but Aaron was clearly upset by the comment made by the mother of his infant son, Prince. Fans also expressed concern for Aaron during the livestream. The "I Want Candy" singer was found dead in a bathtub inside his home in Lancaster, California, by his housekeeper on Nov. 5. Two days later on Nov. 7, TMZ reported that multiple cans of compressed air were found in Aaron's bedroom and bathroom, leading investigators to believe he may have been huffing before his death. Prescription pills were also allegedly found. Further, the DailyMail.com reported some disturbing allegations, claiming Aaron's medically trained neighbors heard a frantic 911 call on a police scanner and ran over to the house to assist before medics or police arrived. However, despite being armed with a defibrillator, the housekeeper — the same one who found Aaron — allegedly denied them entry to the home. The neighbors also claimed the housekeeper initially refused to let sheriff's deputies into the home. Aaron's official cause of death isn't yet known. It's believed he's been dead for quite a while before he was found in the tub.

'Interesting' industry comment
Drama! Actress Francia Raísa seemed to take issue with Selena Gomez after the "Lose You to Love Me" singer called Taylor Swift her "only friend in the industry" in the new Apple TV+ documentary "Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me," which debuted on Nov. 2. After seeing a highlight of the quote, the "Grown-ish" actress commented, "Interesting." She's since deleted the tweet. Francia and Selena were once very close. In fact, Francia donated a kidney to Selena — who suffers from lupus — in 2017. E! News reported that Francia doesn't follow Selena on social media anymore either, and the rumor mill alleged that the two women have been feuding since 2018. After Francia's comment, many fans said they felt that Selena slighted her one-time pal, especially considering her kidney donation. After a popular TikTok influencer explained the perceived feud, Selena jabbed, "Sorry I didn't mention every person I know."

Video concern, clapback
Jessica Simpson ain't having it. Late last week, the fashion mogul posted a video from her daughter's room — a video intended to focus on the decor. However, fans were stunned and felt that Jessica was acting strange and slurring her words. "Is she ok?" was a common response. On Nov. 6, Jessica responded to the criticism by posting an Instagram clip of herself singing in her music studio, which is where she goes to "ground myself and heal." Taking the critical comments head on, she wrote, "As much as I have learned to block out destructive noise…peoples' comments and judgements can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging 'you will never be good enough' 'The most important thing I have learned through the last 5yrs without alcohol being a guard for escapism, is that I CAN and ALWAYS WILL get through it." She continued, "I am capable of pretty much anything I care enough about to put my mind to. I am present. I am deeply inspired. I am determined. I am honest. I care about other people. After grounding myself just now with my voice and the lyrics across my heart, I feel compassion for the opinionated hate that some people can so effortlessly just blurt out with such intensity on social media or in the media in general. We all have our days of wanting to be, look, do, and feel better. Nobody is alone with that feelin' that I can promise you. I woke up at the same time anxious and insecure but also also angry and defensive — like some of you. I know what works for me and that is to let go and simply sing while lookin directly inside the mirror, straight in my eyes to really see and understand myself. I can connect with my heartbeat. I am stable and strong. I am home."
Gigi Hadid has joined the chorus of celebrities quitting Twitter after Elon Musk's takeover of the bird. The model spoke of her decision on Instagram, writing, "For a long time, but especially with its new leadership, it's becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate & bigotry, and its [sic] not a place I want to be a part [sic] of." Gigi admitted that she'll miss engaging with true fans but said she felt that the bad outweighed the good. "I can't stay it's a safe place for anyone," she continued, "nor a social platform that will do more good than harm." Gigi is one of several celebrities who've left Twitter since the Tesla founder gained ownership. Others who've bid adieu include Shonda Rhimes, Sara Bareilles and Téa Leoni.
Sylvester Stallone said a "tragic mistake" nearly led him and wife Jennifer Flavin to divorce. In August, Sly's wife of more than two decades filed divorce documents. In the beginning, it seemed that the split was hardly amicable, as rumors persisted about a blowout fight involving a dog, which the Oscar-winning actor has denied. In a new interview, Sly said that being a workaholic was the real issue. "Sometimes I put the work ahead of [my family], and that is a tragic mistake which won't happen again," the "Rocky" star told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview published Nov. 7. In the weeks that followed Jennifer's divorce filing, the longtime couple hashed out their differences and reconciled. The divorce has since been dismissed in court. "Hopefully you're involved with people who understand the foibles of life and the fragility of it and how rare a real good relationship is," Sly said.

The rich get richer. Ryan Seacrest is reportedly trading coasts — and he recently unloaded his swanky Beverly Hills property for a cool $51 million, TMZ reported on Nov. 7. The compound includes five structures. The main home, the webloid reported, is 9,000 square feet with four bedrooms, six bathrooms and a gourmet chef's kitchen with an opening to an outdoor pizza oven.
