LEONARD, you are obviously just a jealous loser. It sounds like you werent able to make it in Beverly hills yourself, but your parents might have. You seem to be very jealous of people who were born in another country and have come to the US and to the heart of Beverly Hills and have really made something of them self. I feel sorry for you.

Not just a rich talented man but a loving human being. To those who post careless stupidly happy comments about his or anyone dying ...start with the man (woman) in the mirror and see your own self first!!

I just can't believe this. Too sad. Rodeo drive will not be the same. He was a remarkable person and character. He is truly one of a kind and no one can replace him. Roheshon shaad...may he rest in peace.

If you don't like him or anything related to him why the f--k are you commenting on this post? Some of you need to get a f--king life and use your time & energy on something you do like or enjoy.

shame on the person who posted a comment under "wet chili fart"...... your comment and your name is a true indication of your low and despicable character. You are rude and inappropriate. It shows how jealous and envious you are, that even at a somber moment like this you cannot hold your nasty tongue and venom.
DEAR BIJAN
ALTHOUGH I NEVER KNEW YOU, I ALWAYS ADMIRED YOU FOR YOUR VISION, COURAGE, SUCCESS AND IMPECCABLE TASTE, THAT HAS SET YOU HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE ALL THE TOP DESIGNERS........REST IN PEACE, MAY YOUR MEMORY BE BLESSED AND MAY YOUR LEGACY LIVE ON

..I don't like to hear of anyone passing, I can just hope this man didn't suffer and didn't know what hit him, at least his family could have that piece of mind...I hope that was the case..
