So tragedy actually didn’t strike twice today. In a recent statement released to address rumors that started making rounds this morning, Black America’s favorite (and only) married couple says they are NOT separating. After 13 years of marriage, Will and Jada are still going strong.

Did you hear that Black women? There’s still hope!

And just as tragic as the thought of Will and Jada splitting, Nickolas Ashford (of Ashford & Simpson) died today after a long battle with throat cancer. He was 70-years-old.

Ashford and his wife Valerie Simpson had successful careers with Motown and Warner Bros. In addition to their own hits, they wrote songs for legends like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and most recently, Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Their Own.” Ashford leaves behind his wife, two daughters and plenty of old school hits.

DOUBLE DEDICATION:

RIP Fred Imus

I just found out that satellite radio show host Fred Imus, brother of that nappy headed hoe Don Imus, passed away Saturday at the age of 69. Fred hosted “Fred’s Trailor Park Bash” on Sirius XM.

White-haired Leslie Nielsen, most popular for those Naked Gun movies, passed away in a Florida hospital yesterday from pneumonia. He was 84-years-old.

The evening was almost perfect last night at Staples Center… the Lakers whooped Golden State’s ass and everyone got free tacos. Then tragedy struck.

Minutes after the game ended, 2-year-old Lucas Anthony Tang somehow went over the barrier of a luxury box and fell almost 50 feet to the concrete and seats below. He suffered extreme head trauma and was later pronounced dead at the hospital. The picture below shows the glass barrier the toddler fell over.

I’m being nice because this is so tragic… but in my head, I’m GOING IN on his parents! Watch your kids!!

RIP Greg Giraldo

Comedian Greg Giraldo died today, less than a week after a failed suicide attempt.

He was rushed to the hospital Saturday following an overdose on prescription pills in his New Jersey hotel room. Giraldo, 44, was a host on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and, ironically, in NJ to perform at an event for Drug Addiction Recovery Month.

I will always remember him for his stellar performance in Comedy Central’s Roast of Flavor Flav. Offensive yet classic… see for yourself by clicking this link: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=15833904
