Rapper Juice Wrld was injected with Narcan by agents who assumed he was overdosing on Percocet — as it emerged the star was on the FBI’s radar following a raid on his jet last month, according to reports.



The “Lucid Dreams” star was given two doses of the emergency treatment as he started “convulsing (and) going into a seizure” and suffering cardiac arrest during a raid on his entourage’s plane in Chicago early Sunday, law enforcement sources told the Chicago Tribune.

The rapper’s girlfriend told officers that the star took Percocet and “has a drug problem,” the sources told the paper.

According to social media and some media reports, many epilepsy patients following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker had seizures. Disney had warned of all the movie screenings earlier this month.


While the legendary series Star Wars’s latest film split the fans of the series into two, another problem emerged. Many epilepsy patients who watched the film had epileptic seizures after watching the latest Star Wars series: The Rise of Skywalker.


Many epilepsy patients who had seizures shared their experiences in the media after the film. 19-year-old Emily Suzanne Jones, one of the seizures, said the flashes in the film were extremely bad and had to leave the film after the first 30 minutes. Emily from the film had a seizure while still in the hallway.

Bryce Gowdy, a teen football star about to go off to Georgia Tech on a full ride, had no place to go with his family and checked into a hotel room — yet another reminder of their enduring financial problems.


It was Sunday night, and he was acting strange, talking a mile a minute, and kept asking his mom large questions about life. He wanted to know if she and his brothers would be OK in his absence. She sent him to get a blanket from the car, not knowing it was the last time she would ever see him.


Early Monday, about five or six hours later and a little more than a mile away, his body was found by the train tracks in Deerfield Beach. The Broward Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday ruled it a suicide, concluding he deliberately put himself in the path of a freight train.


His death contributes to the roughly two teens in Florida who take their lives each week, and is the second in about a month to do so by train. On Nov. 26, 17-year-old Alejandra Agredo stepped in front of a train on the Tri-Rail tracks in Miami.
