Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s puppy dies… Brian Austin Green responds to Megan Fox divorce filing… Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s petition… Taylor Swift shoots down marriage rumors… and Nicki Minaj searches for #YoungNicki
Less than a month after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson saved his puppy Brutus from drowning in a swimming pool, little Brutus has passed away. Dwayne posted about it on Instagram, saying Brutus and his other puppy Hobbs were playing outside when Brutus ate a poisonous mushroom. Within hours, the puppy’s liver and immune system were destroyed and Dwayne had to make the decision to take him off life support. He posted that he “held his lil’ paw as he was finally at peace” with #WishICouldveSavedYouOneMoreTime.”
Another reminder we have to live and love as greatly as we can today, because tomorrow is never guaranteed. At approximately 11:15pm last night myself and @laurenhashianofficial had to make the painful decision to end Brutus’ suffering by taking him off of life support and sending his soul to pup heaven. I held his lil’ paw as he was finally at peace. As all puppies and dogs do, he ate a mushroom while playing outside with his brother Hobbs. This mushroom happened to have a lethal toxicity and within hours it was rapidly destroying his liver and immune system to the point of no return. I encourage all of you out there to be mindful of mushrooms in your yards, parks or anywhere outside your dogs play. What looks innocent, can be deadly to your lil’ family members. Thank you Dr. Deckelbaum and Dr. West and the incredibly caring nurses and staff at The Animal Medical Center At Cooper City. We’ll always love you Brutus.. and you’ll always be my lil’ main man and rough housing Brute. #RIPBrutus #WishICouldveSavedYouOneMoreTime
Nicki Minaj is producing a TV show about her life for ABC Family. She has a big hand in casting the roles, too, and right now she’s doing a nationwide search to find a young Nicki, about 11-12 years old. Oh, and she has to rap. She’s actually hoping to find an unknown actress for the part. The pilot episode will be filmed in Nicki’s hometown of Queens, NY, this winter.
