Rhonda McCullough, the wife of the late comedian Bernie Mac has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Chicago against the late comedian’s longtime doctor, dermatologist Rene M. Earles.
Rhonda alleges that a few weeks before Mac’s 2008 death, Dr. Earles didn’t recognize indications of respiratory failure and kept her husband at the clinic for several hours rather than call an ambulance.
“Earles denies the claims saying he treated Mac that day and he appeared weak, with a low-grade fever and a rash. He says after Mac told him another doctor had given him an injection for a cold, he called Mac’s doctor and was told Mac had been diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs. He says he immediately advised Bernie Mac to go to a hospital and that Mac was taken to one in a chauffer-driven vehicle.”
Rest in Peace Bernie Mac!

Haitian hip-hop star Wyclef Jean greeted crowds of cheering supporters in the downtown area of Port-au-Prince after registering his intention to run in the November 28 election.
It was recently reported via The Smoking Gun that the rapper personally owes $2.1m in unpaid taxes – PLUS his charity Yele Haiti were previously called into question with allegations of fraud and misappropriation after $400,000 from the foundation was reportedly used to pay rent for properties owned by the musician and for massive fees for his own musical performances at events staged by the charity.
During his interview with CNN after his registration, Wycleff said he felt as though he had been ‘drafted’ by the Haitian people to give them ‘a piece of the dream that I got in America.’ -
But not everyone is jumping on his bandwagon – Actor Sean Penn, who have been quite active in Haiti said:
I’m not accusing Wyclef Jean of being on opportunist. I don’t know the man.
‘But I think it’s extremely important that we pay great attention to both the individuals in the United States who are enamored with him, maybe not for his political strengths, and in particular for corporate interests that are enamored with him, and those that may themselves be opportunists on the back of the Haitian people.
‘One of the reasons I don’t know very much about Wyclef Jean is I haven’t seen or heard anything of him in these last six months that I’ve been in Haiti.
‘I see in Wyclef Jean somebody who could well have been influenced by the promise of support from companies.’
