The article tries its hardest to paint her in as positive a light as possible. All I know is if she had a penis, she would have spent a lot more than 7 years in prison for raping a 12 year old child.

The mayor of Seoul -- considered the second-most powerful official in South Korea -- has been found dead on a mountainside within the capital city.

Park Won-soon's body was found on Bukak mountain in Seoul's Seongbuk-gu neighborhood, just after midnight on Friday local time. The area is very close to his official residence in Jongno-gu.

Police did not reveal how the mayor died, in order to protect his privacy, but they have ruled out foul play.

Rest in peace, Benjamin Keough. The son of Lisa Marie Presley and grandson of Elvis Presley has died, ET confirms. TMZ reports Benjamin died of an apparent suicide in Calabasas, California, on Sunday.

"Lisa Marie is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter, Riley," Presley's rep tells ET. "She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."

My heart goes out to Lisa and her family.

Kelly Preston has died. She was 57.

"On the morning of July 12, 2020, Kelly Preston, adored wife and mother, passed away following a two-year battle with breast cancer," a family representative tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Wow, that's terrible. I can only imagine how Travolta must be feeling right now. RIP Ms. Preston.

That really hurts to hear. Nightmare on Elm Street and Enter the Dragon may be two of his biggest draws, but Battle Beyond the Stars is pretty good and all the more so because of him playing the villain.
