Police detected the odor of marijuana on Haddish and charged her with driving under the influence.

"I'm very emotional. I've been crying a lot 'cause it's - that's my heart. My dog was my heart, and the other people who passed, you know, they were my rocks. They had my back. I mean, they taught me a lot, so I lost the physical, [but] I'm sure I got them in the spiritual," said Haddish.

On Monday, Haddish mourned the loss of Carl Craig, a movie producer and father of Tristan Thompson's first baby mama, Jordan Craig.

Haddish wrote on Instagram:

"This one hurts a lot Carl Craig. When I 1st met you we laughed for three hours. That was in 2004 you taught me so much about this business, you protected me, pushed me, Scolded me, advised me, and congratulated me. I love you and I will keep you in my memories and heart R.I.P."

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen paid tribute to their late TV dad, comedian, actor Bob Saget who passed away suddenly on Sunday, Jan. 9.

Saget, 65, was found deceased in an Orlando hotel room, a day after he performed a 2-hour stand-up comedy show. There was no foul play and no drugs were found in his room.

Years before he died, rumormongers claimed that Saget molested one of the Olsen twins on the set of Full House. The rumor was never confirmed, but the story was repeated so often that it became an urban legend.

Fans believed the story was true after the Olsen Twins declined to appear on the recent Netflix spin-off Fuller House.

In 2014, Saget joked that he may have inappropriately touched a doll that was placed as a stand-in for the Olsen twins on the set.

On Monday, the Olsen twins, 35, told the Today Show:

"Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has. We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences."

The Olsen twins played Michelle Tanner, the adorable toddler of squeaky clean single dad Danny Tanner (Saget) on the sitcom "Full House" which ran from 1987 to 1995.

Renowned percussionist, songwriter, and singer James Mtume passed away suddenly on Sunday, Jan. 9. His cause of death is unknown. He was 76.

Mtume, real name James Forman, was a jazz and R&B musician, record producer, activist, and radio personality.

"A lot of folks didn't know that Mtume was so political and savvy in so many different areas," said Fatiyn Muhammad, the host of the WBLS radio show Open Line.

"I felt like the air got sucked out the room. Mtume was a special individual," he said on Sunday.

In 2008, Mtume (far left) celebrated Rev. Al Sharpton's birthday with Dominique Sharpton and Gov. David Paterson at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers in New York.

Mtume was discovered by legendary trumpeter Miles Davis who took the young musician on tour with him between 1971 and 1975.

Mtume later formed an R&B group called Mtume, which is best known for the 1983 R&B hit song "Juicy Fruit." The song has been repeatedly sampled by rappers, most notably The Notorious B.I.G. in his hit single "Juicy" in 1994. The band Mtume also had a top-5 R&B hit with the single "You, Me, and He".

Mtume's father, James Heath, was a world-famous saxophonist of the Heath Brothers. However, he was raised by James Forman, also a jazz musician who played with jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, according to Mtume.

"So, when I'm growing up, maybe at dinner one night, there's Dizzy Gillespie, another night, there's John Coltrane [or] Thelonious Monk.

"I was only 10 years old, so I didn't know how deep it was, but I did know it was extraordinary hearing these conversations with these great jazz musicians," he told the Philadelphia Tribune.

"At the same time, I'm growing up listening to the birth of R&B and soul — there's James Brown, The Temptations, Motown — so I had a very interesting musical background coming up."

In the 1980s, Mtume and Reggie Lucas co-wrote hits such as "Never Knew Love Like This before" which won a Grammy Award for R&B superstar Stephanie Mills.

Her death was confirmed by former co-star Deedee Magno Hall who said Hale "took her last breath Christmas morning."

No cause of death was disclosed and Hale had no known health issues. She reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this month that left her in a coma for several weeks.

Hale was an original cast member of The All New Mickey Mouse Club from 1989 thru 1995. She appeared alongside Mickey Mouse Club veterans including Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Keri Russell.

Hale went on to form the pop band The Party with Hall, Chase Hampton, Albert 'Jeune Pierre' Fields and Damon Pampolina, according to DailyMail.com.

Hale's former bandmates Hall and Hampton revealed the tragic news via their Instagram pages on Thursday.

"Early this month, she suffered a cardiac arrest that resulted in her being left in a coma. After many prayers and with her family by her side, our dearest Tiff took her last breath Christmas morning. She is now resting peacefully. Tiffini's family has kindly asked that their privacy be respected as they take this time to grieve."

Tributes poured in to Twitter from fans mourning the singer and actress.

One person tweeted:

"Tiffini Hale, Former Member of The Mickey Mouse Club, Dead at 46. Cardiac arrest? Did she have heart problems? Was she obese? Or did she just receive the vaccine? That last question will never be reported, if true. But if she was positive for Covid, it would be front and center."
