Skye McCole Bartusiak -- who played Mel Gibson's daughter in the 2000 movie "The Patriot" -- died from an accidental mix of pain killers and muscle relaxers ... and it looks like she may also have been huffing.....


Bartusiak was just 7 when she appeared in "The Patriot" and had appeared in only one other major film since then.

I have no idea who this wanker is/was.....but he be daid......but TMZ says he was a celebrity......




Scary Kids Scaring Kids singer Tyson Stevens died from a drug overdose, possibly heroin ... that's what his mom and girlfriend told cops.

Stevens died Monday and the official cause of death is unknown. But law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... there's smoke. The girlfriend and mom say Stevens had struggled with heroin addiction for a long time, although he was recently clean.

Our sources say Stevens' body had "old track marks" that had scabbed on his inner right ankle. We're told there was no heroin in the house where he died, but cops did find weed and pipes.

The toxicology report should reveal precise cause of death. It's due in a few weeks.

Jack Bruce, bassist from 1960s band Cream, has died aged 71, his publicist confirms.

Legendary supergroup Cream, which also included Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker, are now considered one of the most important bands in rock history.

They sold 35 million albums in just over two years and were given the first ever platinum disc for Wheels of Fire.

Bruce wrote and sang most of the songs, including "I Feel Free" and "Sunshine Of Your Love".

No truth to the rumor that as a Bassist, he was homeless.

Finally a "celebrity" who actually was one of the greats. He will be missed. I will now play "Badge" about 5 times in a row and drink a pint... of coffee.

Wrestling legend Ox Baker -- who famously battled Kurt Russell in "Escape from New York" -- has died at the age of 80.

Baker was awesome -- he wrestled with everyone from Hulk Hogan to Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka ... and even had a rivalry with "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

After he retired from wrestling, Baker got into acting ... landing the role of Slag in the famous gladiator-style fight scene in the 1981 classic "Escape from New York."

Marcia Strassman -- perhaps best known for playing the mom from the "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" movies -- died Saturday after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 66.

She got her first big recurring role on "M*A*S*H" playing Nurse Cutler ... but struck it big playing the part of Julie Kotter, Gabe Kaplan's wife on "Welcome Back, Kotter."
