My guess ........ Prescription meds. People feel its Ok when it comes from a Dr.



Like the one and only ........ Elvis. Or MJ who probably felt safe because there was a Dr in the house. Or at the strip club (?).

Harvey,



You need to change the way people comment on your site. You make it a pain in the ass! AND you can't change your "Name" the way you can easily change it on other websites. Get with the program! AND- you're a hooker site! You treat Hookers the same way other sites treat REAL celebs!

Straight up sadness. I hope she pulls through. She was such a role model when I was younger.

in 1994, a few months after her shoplifting arrest in Miami, JC was in a motel in Coral Gables, Fl, close to the U of Miami campus doing drugs and having sex with a bunch of guys. Cops were called and JC pled guilty to the minor drug charge and went into rehab.



I believe that one of the guys sold the story about the sex and drugs with JC to the National Enquirer or Star.



It was a long time ago...but that is what happened.

I don't get it, is all of white hollywood on prescription drugs? If your going to take your own life blow your brain's out why make yourself suffer before you die.

Just because she is an attractive woman, everyone is wishing her well - for a drug overdose! Of course, if she does die, it will be listed as an accidental drug overdose. If she does survive, everyone will be wishing her well so she can do more drugs later on.



Hypocrites!

That really is sad...she has put herself through so much. She needs to move away from wherever she is getting whatever she is taking, go somewhere where she knows no one involved in that crap. It is a start....

Between the John McEnroe tantrums and Mary Pierce who's father was banned from his daughter's matches for verbal abuse, Capriati was always solid in tennis. A good role model. Whatever is going on I wish her the best in life.
