ROBIN WILLIAMS was found dead in his home near San Francisco yesterday morning.  He was only 63.  Police suspect suicide by asphyxia.  In other words, he suffocated himself.  It's not clear how. Robin's publicist issued a statement saying that he had been, quote, "battling severe depression of late." And his wife Susan issued a statement saying, quote, "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings.  I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief.  As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions." Robin battled with drug and alcohol addiction for years, and recently went back to rehab to, quote, “fine-tune” his sobriety.

 

It's been about a month since TRACY MORGAN was released from the hospital, and while that's a good sign . . . he isn't out of the woods yet. On the "Today" show yesterday, Tracy's attorney said Tracy is still, quote, "struggling" with his health.  He went on, quote, "But he's a fighter.  He's had issues before that he's fought through, and he's fighting hard."

 

KENDALL JENNER is 18 years old, so she's not supposed to drink . . but not surprisingly, she thinks she's an EXCEPTION. The "New York Post" claims Kendall was so upset about being denied alcohol at a restaurant in New York . . . that she got up and walked out without paying.  When the waitress chased after her, Kendall turned around, laughed, and threw some $20 bills at her face.
