Rumors of Britney Spears’ drug use and reported bipolar disorder have been extensive. But now there’s a new wrinkle in the ongoing saga of her mental health: reports surfaced today via court documents that the singer's ongoing conservatorship may be the result of a medical issue—in this case, a personality disorder. If that’s the case, she’s in good company on the judging panel of The X-Factor.

The exact circumstances of the June 17 death of Celebrity Rehab alum Rodney King, whose police brutality incident spurred the 1991 Los Angeles riots, have remained mysterious. But his autopsy report clears one thing up: King was under the influence at the time of his death, with PCP, cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol found in his system.

The stars of MTV’s hit reality series Teen Mom are well known for their bad habits, but one Teen Mom is cleaning up her act. Troubled Jenelle Evans has dropped her nicotine habit and—in true reality star form—announced it to the world via Twitter: “So I have officially stopped smoking ciggs! :) GO MEEEE!"

Rapper Machine Gun Kelly (known professionally as MGK) has seen his profile rise dramatically in recent months. It appears that stardom may have gone to his head—unless he was always prone to giving his lady-friends the “baby bird.” That’s what he did at a recent club appearance, when he spat vodka into a female fan’s mouth. The incident was captured on video. (Disclaimer: It’s not for those with weak stomachs.)

The actor and director Eli Roth narrowly avoided an ugly scene a few years ago when he was nearly roofied by women he met in Las Vegas. The unlikely hero who kept him from an unfortunate end, was none other than the iconic Quentin Tarantino. The Pulp Fiction legend apparently swooped in to help Roth escape the clutches of a pair of con artists, posing as a mother and daughter, who drugged him at a Sin City after-party.
