We’re still in shock over Paul Walker’s tragic death over the weekend (November 30, 2103). The 40-year-old Fast & Furious star was sitting in the passenger seat of a Porshe driven by his friend Roger Rodus, a former race car driver, when the car hit a lamp post and burst into flames, killing both passengers. They had come from a charity event for victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

“For those who have read about the issue, yes, most of it is true.

"I admit to that & I have apologized to all parties included immediately...

“When I was told of my behavior AND the person who started all of this, due to this persons inappropriate behavior, apologized to me too...
