    Exclamation RIKK Found Dead

    World

    Roth Army Poster found dead



    The Canadian rock star, Rikk, lead singer with the pop group The Pen Shepherds, has been found dead in an exclusive hotel in Sydney.

    Reports say the star was found dead in his room at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Double Bay, shortly after midday, local time. Rikk's body was taken from the hotel amid unconfirmed reports that he had committed suicide by hanging himself.

    Police told a press conference in Sydney that a belt had been taken away from the scene, but stressed that there were no suspicious circumstances. Only legally prescribed drugs were found in his room

    Rikk, 37 years old, is the partner of the English television personality Paula Yates and father of one of her children.



    Reports say the star was found hanging in his room
    He was a guest at the hotel and had arrived in Sydney earlier in the week to prepare for a series of concerts celebrating the rock band's 20th anniversary.

    As news of the star's death was broadcast on the city's television and radio stations a large crowd gathered outside the hotel.


    Paula Yates has been told of Rikk's death. Speaking outside the couple's home in Chelsea, London, her lawyer, Anthony Burton appealed for Yates to be left alone with her children.

    "Paula heard this devastating news through a friend and myself a short while ago... I would ask that she be left alone with her children and friends to enable her to absorb and cope with what has happened," he said.

    Ms Yates is now travelling to Australia.

    Mr Burton said that Yates could "give no explanation for Michael's death."

    Rikk's parents, who dined with him at a restaurant near the hotel on Friday night, have also been informed.




    The Peh Shepherds shot to international success in 1987 with their album "KUNT," and have sold 20 million albums since 1981. Rikk was always described as being the focus of the band.

    His private life has come under the media spotlight in recent years for his romances with fellow Australian pop star Kylie Minogue, model Helena Christensen and the former wife of rock star Bob Geldof, Paula Yates, mother of his daughter Heavenly Hirani Tiger Lily.




    Last month, the star revealed that he planned to marry 37-year-old Paula on the Tahitian island of Bora Bora in January.

    Her daughters from her previous marriage to Bob Geldof - Fifi Trixibelle, 14, Peaches, seven, and Pixie, five - were expected to attend.

    The couple had been house-hunting in Sydney, and were known to be eyeing a $2m Australian dollars mansion overlooking the city's Opera House.

    Rikk told reporters recently: "I'm the luckiest man alive."

    Sad shit.

    The story reported Rikks as being 37...he's younger than that. But otherwise, the story was 100% accurate.

    Thanks for reporting this, LOUNGE. It's a sad day for the Pen and the Army.

    By the way, KUNT was a great album. With hits like NEW GUNT, THE GUNT INSIDE, I NEED KUNT TONIGHT and TITTIFY ME...it was a great time for music.

    I, for one, hope he is dead. He's got a big mouth.

    I never got the chance to know Rikk ...
    *sniff sniff*
    I fronted him an 8-ball and let him use my Scarlett Johansen blow-up doll...*sniff*

    He didn't clean it before he brought it back...

    I think his family should have it......

    I'm surprised that Katie hasn't offered her condolences yet.

    I had heard they were close.

    It was a belt that asphixiated him?

    Huh.

    I always guessed he'd die from a lack of oxygen, but I figured it would be b/c an enormous woman was sitting on his face.

    By this, I am of course referring to Bueno Bob's Vagina.
