Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Mumford & Sons Bassist Ted Dwane “Recovering Nicely”


Yesterday it was reported that Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane was taken to the hospital this week to receive emergency treatment for an apparent blood clot doctors found on his brain. So scary!

The band issued an official statement about the matter on its website that reads:

“Our friend and bandmate Ted has feel feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment.

“The Scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.”

Following the news, Mumford & Sons has announced that they will postpone the next three scheduled shows, but the band assures fans that they will reschedule as soon as they can.

The band, just as many others, also said they were “wishing Ted a speedy recovery.”

Today, the Daily Mail is reporting that Dwane is “recovering nicely.” The update came via the band’s banjo player Winston Marshall, who announced the good news via Twitter.

So glad they caught the blood clot when they did and that they are able to treat it. We’ll update you guys as things develop, but until then Celebrity VIP is sending good vibes Dwane’s way and will continue to keep him in our thoughts.

The Real Reason Ray J Was Hospitalized!

Yesterday we reported that Ray J was hospitalized due to exhaustion and stress of the Billboard Awards, the extensive travelling he did to get there and the confrontation with the Houston family.

However, a new report indicates that there was definitely MORE to the hospitalization.

According to Global Grind,

Ray J has been in a Las Vegas area hospital since the early morning of Monday, May 21, and will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag…

But as Ray J was just released from the hospital, his publicist has sent out a new statement with some disturbing news about the singer.

Ray J has been released from the hospital in Las Vegas and is back home in Los Angeles following an extensive battery of tests to make sure that he did not have a blood clot in his lungs which is potentially a deadly condition that can occur following a long haul plane flight.

You all remember when Heavy D passed away, right? Well, that same blood clot situation is what ultimately killed him.

Ray attended the Billboard Awards in Vegas after returning from China (a 32 hour round trip) AND driving four hours to get to Sin City.
