Ben E. King, most known for his song “Stand By Me” died on Thursday at the age of 76.

King’s publicist confirmed the news to HipHollywood on Friday morning. Ben apparently passed away of natural causes inside his New Jersey home.

“With an extremely heavy heart, I must say goodbye to one of the sweetest, gentlest and gifted souls that I have had the privilege of knowing and calling my friend for more than 50 years,” former Blues musician Gary US Bonds wrote on Facebook. “Speaking for myself, my family & my Roadhouse Rockers family, I can tell you that Ben E. will be missed more than words can say. Our sincere condolences go out to Betty and the entire family. Thank you Ben E. for your friendship and the wonderful legacy you leave behind.

Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.

This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.

Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
