Rapper Petey Pablo (no relation to The Bachelor pariah Juan Pablo) is a free man after doing two years of hard time for gun smuggling, TMZ reports.

The man behind "Raise Up" and "Freek-a-Leek" among other hip hop classics is out of prison ahead of schedule, and for the first time in a long awhile.

Back in 2010, he was arrested at Raleigh Durham Airport on September 11 (seriously) after police say he tried to take a stolen gun through airport security.

Petey Pablo was notoriously sentenced to 35 months behind bars at a federal prison for that offense, but was cut loose this week, four months early.

Like fellow free man Lil Boosie, he's focused on getting back to work. Pablo says he will return to hip-hop and has already hooked up with Timbaland.

We've seen a daughter slam her mother in an obituary before.

And we've seen a newspaper actually publish an obituary for Walter White.

But this is a first: A Delaware resident named Walter George Bruhl Jr. penned his very own obituary just days before he passed away at the age of 80 on Sunday.

Walter's son, Sam, posted the moving/humorous piece on Facebook and it opens with the following paragraph:

Arthur Chu watched his impressive 11-game Jeopardy win streak end Wednesday, as the #ChuChuTrain was finally derailed due to cynicism.

Seriously. That was the word that finally did him in.

His official winnings were $298,200 ($297,200 in 11 wins and a $1,000 third-place prize last night) good enough for third all-time in the game show's history.

Only Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter have won more.

"So close to $300,000. That hurt. I wanted to make it. But I was $1,800 short. I can make $1,800 someplace else," said Chu, who appears on Good Morning America today.

"It's been an amazing run," he said, adding of his incredible stretch, "This last couple of months has been one of the coolest experiences of my life."

Chu actually only spent three days taping in November; his 11 wins were spaced out, TV-wise, for more than a month because of Jeopardy! tournaments.

At least two people were killed and nearly two dozen injured Wednesday by a Harlem explosion reportedly triggered by a gas leak, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

The mayor, speaking to New York reporters at the scene, said finding those still missing is a top priority, but cautioned that many may have simply fled to safety.

The N.Y. City Fire Department said at least 22 people were hurt, including two with life-threatening injuries and four with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Both fatalities were women. More than a dozen people are unaccounted for after the explosion leveled two buildings in Harlem and ignited a massive fire.

"This is a tragedy of the worst kind because there was no indication in time to save people," de Blasio told the media. "We have lost two people already."

He promised a thorough search of the rubble after the 200 firefighters, who began arriving on the scene in two minutes, bring the fire under control.

"First Kiss," a beautiful short film featuring 20 strangers kissing for the first time, went viral this week and racked up more than 25 million views.

While some critics say the film is basically ad featuring lots of professional entertainers, but the creator behind it insists it's 100 percent real.

Fashion designer Melissa Coker says that despite its production quality and dazzling cast, everything that happens in the ad is real and wonderful.

"Everyone was a volunteer," Coker said, adding that the 20 people in it were friends of either herself, director Tatia PIlieva or her clothing brand, Wren.

"It's kind of funny," she adds, that "the dialogue that sort of developed online and everything where people are like, 'This isn't real, there's actors in it!'

"Well, there's some people whose profession is actor, but it's L.A. after all, I can't help but have actor friends. But everything that you see is 100% authentic."

Duke University freshman Miriam Weeks, a.k.a. Belle Knox, says her parents are not upset by the fact that she took a side job as a porn star to pay tuition.

Weeks, 18, denied a report that her Army doctor dad was heartbroken when he found out about her side job upon returning from deployment in Afghanistan.

“My parents aren’t upset,” Weeks told the New York Daily News in between filming scenes for an upcoming adult film. “I want my family left out of it."

"If people criticize me that’s one thing, but leave my family alone."

The young woman who goes by Belle Knox on screen said she was “really, really upset” over a Daily Mail article that identified her parents, who live in Spokane, Wash.

Amanda Minor, the alleged mother-in-law of Miriam’s brother Paul, was quoted as saying of their parents, “They’re heartbroken, but it’s not irreparable."

Weeks, however, says that she’s never even met Minor in her life.

“That lady doesn’t know what she’s talking about,” Weeks said.

Before she was the Duke porn star, the youngest of three college-aged kids was an A student at Gonzaga Prep, a private school her parents paid $11,000 a year for.

Cameraman Justin Lyons, the sole witness to the tragic death of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin revealed the star's final moments in a new interview this week.

"I'm dying," was all the 44-year-old popular television host said after a surprise attack eight years ago by a massive stingray, Lyons told Studio Ten Sunday.

The two were in Australia's Great Barrier Reef in September 2006 to shoot a nature documentary when they found a "massive, 8-foot-wide stingray," Lyons said.

Lyons, who worked with Irwin for 15 years, said they were “looking for something to do” when they went exploring around the water in an inflatable boat.

He told his friend to swim up behind the stingray and he would try to get a shot of the "normally very calm" animal. But the stingray did not remain calm.

“All of a sudden, it propped on its front and started stabbing wildly with its tail," Lyons said, adding that it made "Hundreds of strikes in a few seconds."

Oscar Pistorius threw up in court Monday, often, as a pathologist detailed the injuries Reeva Steenkamp sustained when Oscar shot her through a locked door.

The Olympic track star, currently on trial for murder, was given a bucket to vomit into during testimony in South Africa, and he used it quite frequently.

When he wasn't booting, Oscar Pistorius was seen rocking back and forth in his seat, crying and covering his ears with his hands throughout the testimony.

The graphic testimony was pretty gruesome stuff by any measure.

Professor Gert Saayman detailed the bullet wounds he found on Reeva Steenkamp, Pistorius' girlfriend who he killed on Valentine's Day 2013, following her death.

The prosecution witness testified in detail about how the 29-year-old model was shot on the top of the head, in the right elbow, in the right hip and left hand.
