Rock legend David Crosby has died after a “long” battle with an unknown illness. He was 81.

The singer’s wife, Jan Dance, announced the tragic news in a statement to Variety on Thursday.

“It is with great sadness after a long illness, that our beloved David (Croz) Crosby has passed away,” the statement read. “He was lovingly surrounded by his wife and soulmate Jan and son Django.”

It continued, “Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us. His legacy will continue to live on through his legendary music. Peace, love, and harmony to all who knew David and those he touched. We will miss him dearly.”

The family concluded the statement by asking for “privacy” during this difficult time and thanked the guitarist’s fans for all their “love and prayers.”

Crosby rose to fame in the mid ‘60s as a singer-guitarist for The Byrds alongside Gene Clark, Rogen McGuinn and Chris Hillman.

Following his staggering success with the chart-topping group, he co-founded Crosby, Stills & Nash with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash.

Neil Young joined the iconic group in 1969 and the foursome continued to play together on and off for the next four decades.

Despite three consecutive No. 1 albums and a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1970, the group decided to split up for good in 2015 amid an on-going feud between Crosby and Nash.

However, after hearing news of Crosby’s passing, Nash reflected on all the good years — and music — they shared.

“It is with a deep and profound sadness that I learned that my friend David Crosby has passed,” Nash wrote on Instagram. “I know people tend to focus on how volatile our relationship has been at times, but what has always mattered to David and me more than anything was the pure joy of the music we created together, the sound we discovered with one another, and the deep friendship we shared over all these many long years.”

He continued, “David was fearless in life and in music. He leaves behind a tremendous void as far as sheer personality and talent in this world. He spoke his mind, his heart, and his passion through his beautiful music and leaves an incredible legacy. These are the things that matter most.”

Young also honored his former bandmate, writing that though he is gone, his “music lives on.”

“We had so many great times, especially in the early years,” he wrote on his Neil Young Archives website. “Crosby was a very supportive friend in my early life, as we bit off big pieces of our experience together. David was the catalyst of many things.”

Young added, “My heart goes out to Jan and Django, his wife and son. Lots of love to you. Thanks David for your spirit and songs, Love you man. I remember the best times!”

Crosby was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 for his work with the Byrds and again in 1997 alongside Nash and Stills.

Back in 2019, the rock star released a brutally honest documentary about his life called “David Crosby: Remember My Name.”

Although the film didn’t delve into his five-month prison stint in 1985 for possession of drugs and a firearm, it did detail the singer-songwriter’s impact on the music industry and the complicated relationships that followed.

“Most documentaries are shine jobs … We did not polish it up, it is not shiny and I’m an imperfect person … I’m not cute at all,” Crosby said at the premiere. “I’m a guy who’s been through a whole lot of stuff, has a very checkered history … I did not lie.”

Born in Los Angeles in 1941 to Oscar-winning cinematographer Floyd Crosby, the late rocker knew he wanted to be a musician at a young age.

And while he tried to stay on the straight and narrow, Crosby ended up dropping out of Santa Barbara City College to pursue his dreams as a teenager.

“My brother turned me on to jazz, and [we] used to sing while we were washing the dishes,” he told American Songwriter last year. “I like singing and I like music, so to create it is just the most natural thing in the world for me. I never even considered being anything else.”

The late musician says Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell inspired him to start writing his own lyrics rather than just sing “songs that have been around for a hundred years.”

“I wrote some songs that were pretty good early on, and that encouraged me,” he told the outlet. “I don’t think I’m the best. I never did think that. But I’m probably in the top hundred of them in the world, and that’s plenty enough for me.”

The “Cowboy Movie” singer was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.

Crosby is survived by his Dance, whom he wed in 1987, sons Django and James Raymond, as well as daughters Erika and Donovan from the singer’s previous relationships.

He also fathered Melissa Etheridge’s then-partner Julie Cypher’s two children, Beckett and Bailey Jean, via artificial insemination. Beckett died at age 21 in 2020.

She’s never been better.

Despite her ex-husband’s recent shock “marriage,” Kim Kardashian is in her “happy era.”

At least that’s what the reality star-turned-billionaire mogul captioned three new Instagram photos on Thursday, all of which feature the mother of four showing off her long, dark locks and a fresh blowout curtesy of her favorite hair guru, Chris Appleton.

“The happiest ,” her friend Tracy Romulus commented beneath the carousel.

In the snaps, a casually dressed Kardashian paired distressed denim blue jeans with a fitted white T-shirt.

Her glam, by face maven Ashley Kholm, featured a soft pink lip and sky-high lashes.

“There she is!! I missed brunette Kim!!,” the makeup artist gushed.

After falling off the grid following a string of anti-Semitic outbursts, West made headlines last week for reportedly marrying one of his Yeezy employees in an intimate ceremony in Beverly Hills.

The staffer in question, 27-year-old Bianca Censori, has worked as an architectural designer for the fashion brand for a handful of years.

She also resembles West’s first wife, whose divorce from the troubled rapper was just finalized in November 2022.

Though Censori and West, 45, are said to have said “I do” with an exchange of rings, they did not file a marriage certificate to make their union legally binding.

We’re told the Kardashian family is confused about and concerned over the seemingly impulsive nuptials, mostly regarding how it will affect the exes’ children: daughter North, 9, son Saint, 7, daughter Chicago, 5, and son Psalm, 3.

“The family isn’t taking this as a marriage yet. They don’t know what it is,” our source said.

“They aren’t sure if it is a PR stunt. They are waiting to see if he files for papers. They are nervous because if it’s real, she would be in the children’s life.”

Another insider told us Page Six that Kim “hates” Censori — and has for quite some time.

However, the Skims founder has not yet spoken publicly about the bizarre situation. In fact, she boasted about being in her “quiet girl era” right before the marriage news broke.

Leslie Jordan died of “sudden cardiac dysfunction,” according to a report obtained by Page Six from the Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

“Arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease,” also known as atherosclerosis, was listed as a secondary factor.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, atherosclerosis is the thickening or hardening of the arteries, caused by a buildup of plaque.

The beloved “Will & Grace” actor crashed his vehicle in Hollywood on Oct. 24 after suffering a suspected medical emergency while driving. He was 67 years old.

A day after the fatal accident, it was reported that the “American Horror Story” star had been dealing with shortness of breath in the days leading up to his death.

Sources close to Jordan told TMZ on Oct. 25 that the comedian had been complaining about feeling unwell, and so he had an appointment scheduled with a cardiologist.

Aside from these breathing issues, the “Call Me Kat” star was reportedly known to have only had COVID-19 once and not any other major health concerns.

Amid the darkest days of the coronavirus pandemic, Jordan became a ray of light for many on social media with his viral videos.

While the TV star was hunkered down in his hometown of Chattanooga, Tenn., with his 84-year-old mother, he made people laugh with clips of himself chatting to the public in his signature Southern drawl.

In an interview with Page Six in April 2021, Jordan shared how becoming sober helped changed his life.

“I got into AA 22 years ago, and I was made to examine things,” he told us at the time. “I was made to write about my fears, about my beliefs, to find a god of my own understanding, and it’s getting rid of that fear, that burning lake of fear.

“I don’t know at what point, but here I am, 65, perfectly comfortable with who I am, what I am, and how did that happen? I think just living life and exploring things and reading things.”

He added, “It was a journey away from things that you were taught as a child. It’s in the seeking, that’s my faith and not thinking that I’m going to figure it out. It’s just an open heart.”

Jordan left a lasting impression in Hollywood, and many celebs honored him on social media after his death.

His “Will & Grace” co-star Sean Hayes tweeted, “My heart is broken. Leslie Jordan was one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone who ever met him, loved him. There will never be anyone like him. A unique talent with an enormous, caring heart. You will be missed, my dear friend. .”

“Glee” star Kevin McHale added, “Leslie Jordan was as talented and genuine as they come. What a ray of sunshine. This is just terrible.”

Tori Spelling’s teen daughter is still recovering after being hospitalized twice with hemiplegic migraines.

The “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum said that Stella, 14, is doing “not great, not great” on Thursday’s episode of SiriusXM’s “Jeff Lewis Live.”

“She, as you know, went to the [emergency room] now twice,” Spelling, 49, revealed. “So everyone knows, she went once last week, and then she went a couple of days ago and was diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine.”

Spelling explained that when Stella gets a hemiplegic migraine, “one side [of her body] goes numb.”

“It almost kind of mimics what a stroke would be,” Spelling continued. “Her left arm went completely numb, she couldn’t lift it, and then half of her throat, and then her mouth, so it looked like she had had a stroke.”

According to the American Migraine Foundation, a hemiplegic migraine is a rare kind of migraine that affects a person’s motor weaknesses and can impair their speech and feeling.

Spelling explained that before they reached the ER each time, Stella “was starting to feel like she was coming back.”

The mom of five shared that both times she began to feel on the other side of her body again by the time they got to the hospital – first at Big Bear Lake, Calif., and the second at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana in LA – but it was still “really scary” considering it looked like she was having a stroke.

“She’s still dizzy, she’s nauseous,” Spelling said, adding that she’s “still going to a neurologist at Children’s Hospital LA”

When asked what caused the migraines, Spelling explained it’s a “hereditary migraine” she got from her dad Dean McDermott’s side of the family.

Spelling originally shared Stella’s health scare a week ago.

The “Scary Movie 2” actress previously shared updates with her 1.6 million Instagram followers – including one that she was going home last weekend. It’s unclear if that was before or after her second ER visit.

Spelling and McDermott – who have been no strangers lately to having health scares both themselves and within their family – share daughter Hattie, 11, and sons Beau, 5, Finn, 10, and Liam, 15.

It’s Jennifer².

Jennifer Lopez was seen palling around with Jennifer Coolidge at the starry afterparty for the “Shotgun Wedding” movie premiere in LA on Wednesday night.

Lopez, 53, and the “White Lotus” star, 61, were dancing and laughing before realizing they were “live” in a video posted to her Instagram on Wednesday.

“We’re here at the ‘Shotgun Wedding’ premiere. It was so amazing. We had such a great time,” the singer gushed as she wrapped her arm around Coolidge, who is holding a cocktail.

Lopez added of Coolidge, “This woman was fantastic!”

J.Lo captioned the video, “HAPPY JENNUARY! Live at the @shotgunweddingmovie after party.”

Coolidge looked chic in a black dress with lace detailing, while Lopez stunned in a frilly frock.

But Coolidge wasn’t the only star Lopez was showing love to at the Amazon film’s premiere celebration.

The “On The Floor” singer also filmed a PDA-packed moment with her husband, Ben Affleck, where he was seen giving her a sweet kiss on the cheek.

“I’m here with my hubby,” Lopez said as the “Argo” actor, 50, cozied up to her.

Lopez then panned the camera over the party to show the crowds of people dancing to her 2007 hit song “Do It Well.”

“We’re having a good time. It’s a lot of people,” Lopez said on Instagram Live, adding, “I love you guys.”

She also told her followers that they should see the film in the movie theater as opposed to streaming because it’s best with an audience.

“That’s how you should see a comedy because everybody was laughing and having such a good time,” she said.

Earlier in the evening, Lopez dazzled as she walked the premiere red carpet in a sparkling sheer Valentino Haute Couture dress that was covered in crystals and adorned with a big yellow bow.

She accessorized the look with a yellow velvet Tyler Ellis clutch, which retails at $2,550.

Also at the star-studded premiere were Lopez’s co-star Josh Duhamel and his wife, Audra Mari, Lenny Kravitz, Whitney Cummings, D’Arcy Carden and Tyrese Gibson. Heidi Klum’s 18-year-old daughter, Leni, was also in attendance, walking the red carpet with her dad, Seal.

“Shotgun Wedding” is scheduled to be released on Friday, Jan. 27 on Prime Video.
