Allegations B.B. King Was Poisoned Are Ridiculous, Says Attorney.

Attorneys for BB King’s estate have ridiculed claims by two of the blues musician’s heirs that he was poisoned and police have said there is no active homicide investigation.Karen Williams and Patty King allege in documents provided by their lawyer to the Associated Press that King’s business manager, LaVerne Toney, and personal assistant, Myron Johnson, poisoned him. Three doctors determined that King was appropriately cared for in his final days and received 24-hour care and monitoring by medical professionals “up until the time that he peacefully passed away in his sleep”, attorney Brent Bryson said on Monday. Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg (FYOU’-den-berg) says there’s no immediate evidence supporting allegations by a lawyer who says she represents King’s heirs.

King died on May 14 from a series of strokes which may have been caused by his Type-2 diabetes, which he had struggled with for more than two decades before his death. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, however, told NBC News that they are not moving forward with any investigation at this time. was there for sister Kayleen McAdams’s wedding day in their native Canada over Memorial Day Weekend, looking beautiful in a knee-high cornflower blue halter dress with a high neckline and draped, petal-style skirt, paired with golden stiletto sandals. The 36-year-old Mean Girls and True Detective season 2 star’s sister, a Los Angeles-based celebrity makeup artist, and her beau, Evan Turner, exchanged vows at the Port Cunnington Lodge in Dwight, Ontario on Saturday. The bride looked lovely in what appeared to be an ivory, lace halter gown with a mermaid-style skirt and a fingertip-length veil, while the groom sported a light gray suit. But Clark county family court hearing master Jon Norheim said on 7 May that police and social services investigations in October and April uncovered no reason to take power of attorney from Toney.

The allegations come days after a public viewing in Las Vegas drew more than 1,000 fans and mourners, while 350 people attended a weekend family-and-friends memorial. A Beale Street procession and memorial are scheduled on Wednesday in Memphis, Tennessee, followed by a Friday viewing and Saturday burial in King’s hometown of Indianola, Mississippi. Plus, we’ve got our eyes on a statement accessory that’s guaranteed to liven up any outfit you’ve got this season. “This week I officially (and gleefully!) found my go-to lipstick for summer 2015. It’s a bright orange, almost neon coral tint from Clinique and it was love at first sight swipe.” —Cinya Burton, Style Senior Editor “Summer’s in the super-near distance (Memorial Day weekend, anyone?), which means a new printed mini is in order.

I’ve found one in the latest crop of dresses at H&M: The leafy print on this navy-and-yellow number will work well to offset my gold summer sandals, and the flattering fit-and-flare silhouette doesn’t hurt either.” —Nicole Adlman, Style Writer “Every once in a while you come across an online store that seems to hold every dress, bag and shoe your heart desires. While I talk myself out of that, this dress will do very nicely!” —Jacqueline Lee, Photo Editor “Necklaces are my thing, and this Alexis Bittar version (although pricy) just made me go weak at the knees.

True, this item is expensive, but considering how often I plan on wearing it, it’s more than worth it.” —Lindsey Sirera, Style Intern It pretty much goes without saying now that you can expect at least one major cape moment on the biggest red carpets of the season, and we’re not complainin’. From Gwyneth Paltrow’s structured Tom Ford cape gown at the 2012 Oscars (she may not have originated the trend, but she definitely brought it back into the sartorial lexicon) to Lupita Nyong’o’s crimson Ralph Lauren gown at the 2014 Golden Globes, stars have been playing caped crusader in seriously covetable clothing. (We gotta mention that there’s even been an Edna Mode-worthy “No Capes!” snafu by Madonna.) Most recently, Nikki Reed stepped out at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in a breathtaking, navy Azzaro Couture gown featuring a floor-sweeping tulle cape—which made us dig through the archives for other show-stopping (and superhero-inspired) celeb looks.
