Poor kid. You know he tried his entire life to live up to his father's fame, with very little success.

RIP

So sad. My heart goes out to the mother and brother. Sly, not so much. I doubt he spent much time with him while he was busy chasing fame and gallavanting with his whores.

Takes a lot of gall for TMZ to say the Starline bus is tasteless considering you are perfectly happy to post a picture from the scene AND you know this story will bring you a lot of traffic to this website.
