With questions continuing to be raised over why Lee Thompson Young killed himself at the age of 29 this week, a new report points to a pair of possible reasons:

  1. Depression.
  2. Religion.

An unnamed source tells the site that Young had suffered from the former for a long time, while confirming that the Rizzoli & Isles star was anything but a party animal during his time on Earth.

"He was the opposite. Lee loved to travel and was always the first to tell everyone to take a breath and enjoy the beauty of life," the insider says, adding the star was "gentle and unassuming" despite a lot of success in Hollywood.

Signs that call for "No Muslim Parking" near a Texas shopping center have shocked local worshippers and the general public, for obvious reasons.

The signs posted in Spring Branch, Tx., were taken down within hours of appearing - during Ramadan, no less - and it's still unclear who put them up.

The signs near the Westview Shopping Center were reportedly in close proximity to the El Farouq Mosque; worshipers do often park in the mall's lot.

Those employees went on to point the finger at the mall complex's owner, Steve Kwon, but Kwon denied any knowledge of or responsibility for the signs.

After being approached by camera crews, he promptly started taking them down. In any case, the mystery is unsolved, but the signs are no longer up.

Scott Disick has apparently learned a lot from Kanye West.

With his quasi brother-in-law thinking he's Jesus (or, to be precise, "Yeezus"), Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy has posted a photo to Instagram of him and his relatives at The Last Supper.

It's unclear why, but it's also rather hilarious to study:

There's Kris Humphries hanging out. There's Kanye earning an inclusion. And there's Kendall Jenner as… Judas?!?

Based on the recent claims of Michael Girgenti, you'd think Kourtney would earn this traitorous spot at the table. Maybe in a few weeks if Girgenti's paternity claims prove to be true.

What do you think of Disick's photo? Is it cute? Harmless? Or will Scott soon be rotting away for all eternity because he's comparing himself to Jesus Christ in this reimagination of the iconic meal?

Supermodel Kate Upton says she's religious and proud of it, despite attempts by others in the industry to force her to downplay her Christian faith.

The 21-year-old got a cross tattoo on her finger so she could always show her devotion to God, the Elle cover girl revealed in the September issue.

Not unlike the way she says men treat her like a toy or an object, she revealed how it's upsetting to find that her religion isn't always taken seriously:

"I was at a photo shoot, wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, 'Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.'"

"And then they took [my necklace] away,” Kate Upton added. “I was really affected by that."

Flo Rida took to the stage this morning as part of the Today Toyota Summer Concert Series, rocking out to a compilation of “Wild Ones,” “Can’t Believe it,” “Whistle,” and “I Cry.”

But many in the crowd and on the Internet took more note of what the rapper rocked around his neck than the words that came out of his mouth:

One seriously HUGE Jesus Christ necklace.

“It’s the sign of success,” said Flo Rida. “I put God first in everything I do.”

But would Jesus want the artist spending so much money on a piece of jewlery over other causes to which the cash could go? Is that what the bible teaches? So critics ask, at least.

Join the debate now: What do you think of Flo Rida's Jesus bling?

Leah Remini is allegedly still battling Scientology, and the whereabouts of the long-unseen wife of church leader David Miscavige is the sticking point.

The actress has filed a missing person’s report with the LAPD regarding Shelly Miscavige, whose vanishing indirectly led to Leah leaving the religion.

“Our missing persons unit informed us that [Remini] did file a missing person report on a Shelly Miscavige,” a spokesperson for the LAPD said.

“That is all we are going to say at this time.”

News of her LAPD filing was first reported by anti-Scientology journalist Tony Ortega, who also was among the first to report on her rift with the church.

Given some of his controversial statements on women and gays, Pat Robertson surprised many this week when he replied to a viewer question about transgender lifestyles...

... and showed understanding and compassion when it came to these individuals.

The televangelist - who recently said he wants to vomit over gay men kissing and who blamed a wife for her husband's infidelity - was asked by a 700 Club fan about coworkers who have legally changed their gender and replied:

"I think there are men who are in a woman's body. It's very rare. But it's true - or women that are in men's bodies - and that they want a sex change. That is a very permanent thing, believe me, when you have certain body parts amputated and when you have shot up with various kinds of hormones.

"It's a radical procedure. I don't think there's any sin associated with that. I don't condemn somebody for doing that."

Leah Remini has broken her silence regarding her defection from Scientology, issuing her most direct words to date about her decision to leave the church.

Remini and her entire family left Scientology after a bizarre series of events that allegedly include A-list stars writing “knowledge reports” about her.

Leah’s questions about the whereabouts of church head David Miscavige’s wife Shelly, reportedly created controversy among Scientology's hierarchy.

“We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we’re about,” Remini told People magazine on Saturday.

Pope Francis had a busy week in Brazil, visiting slums and prisons, blessing the Olympic flag and bringing three million people to mass on Sunday.

But it was on the plane back to Rome where the newly-anointed pontiff took questions from reporters and made perhaps his biggest headline of the trip.

According to the Wall Street Journal, he was asked about homosexuality, the reported "gay lobby" and the topic of gay priests in the Catholic Church.

Here is how Pope Francis, 76, broached the delicate, hypothetical question of how he would respond to finding out that a cleric in his ranks was gay.

"Who am I to judge a gay person of goodwill who seeks the Lord?" the pontiff said, speaking in Italian. "You can't marginalize these people."

Religious scholar Reza Aslan recently appeared on the Fox News online show Spirited Debate and found himself grilled on why a Muslim would write a book about Jesus.

Aslan appeared on the show Friday to promote his book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, about how the environment Jesus grew up in shaped him.

But host Lauren Green didn't seem to want to talk about the book so much, however, as she wanted to talk about how Reza Aslan is a Muslim.

She seemed insistent that this fact somehow affects the quality of his new book about Jesus. Her very first question leading off the interview:

"You’re a Muslim, so why did you write a book about the founder of Christianity?"
