Holy Holiday

It came as no surprise that James Brown died yesterday at the age of 73 considering his notoriety as a cokehead boozehound. Brown, who served 15 months in prison following a high speed chase with the police while on drugs, died of heart failure in an Atlanta hospital. His maybe wife, Tomi Rae Hynie Brown, has been locked out of his home and told reporters, "This is my home, I don't have any money. I don't have anywhere to go." Brown's lawyer confirmed she was denied access to the home as the couple was not officially married and his estate was willed to his children. Apparently the woman was already married to some dude in Texas when she married Brown so it didn't really count. She claimed to be at a "retreat" when her husband was admitted to the hospital with severe pneumonia. Brown's lawyer said Tomi has a home down the street that she lives in, so basically she's a lying drama queen. We expect Tomi to file a lawsuit momentarily to contest the will. Let the games begin.
