*The Cook County, Illinois medical examiner’s office has revealed that former Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards died of complications from meningitis.

Edwards died last month in Chicago after a long illness. He was 74.

The medical examiner’s finding confirms what the family said when announcing his death on Feb. 1.

Previous reports of elder abuse at the hands of his wife were unfounded.

Edwards replaced founding member David Ruffin in 1968 and was a member of The Temptations on and off for about two decades. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of the group in 1989.

Comedians Katt Williams and Chris Tucker have been included on the California State Franchise Tax Board list of the top 500 delinquent taxpayers.

According to thejasminebrand.com, Williams (whose real name is Micah Williams) owed $1,717,504.87 in unpaid state taxes for income earned prior to 2012. Tucker owes $1,221,275.80 for unpaid taxes prior to 2017.

Williams recently made his return to TV, as Earn’s crazy uncle, “Alligator Man,” in the hit FX series “Atlanta.”

The funnyman explained to Complex that he did some extensive research to make sure his character was on point.

“The first two times I auditioned, I wasn’t good enough and other people were better,” he said. “I just kept at it, and then I interned at an alligator farm for three-and-a-half weeks, just so I could get comfortable enough that we didn’t use a stuntman. I really adopted the alligator into my home. And became so comfortable with it that it was like working with another co-star.”

Williams went on to describe that experience as “life-changing.”
