Many people look up to famous celebrities as role models, but not all of them stay healthy for very long. Some suffer from health problems that require close monitoring or even medical attention, while some have health issues that are more serious.
Some diseases that plague certain stars can be prevented by doing things like eating well and exercising, so it is important to know what factors play a part in their personal wellness routines. It is also important to recognize when changes occur, such as if someone’s hair starts thinning out or they start looking less vibrant and alive than before.
When these signs appear, it is best to pay extra special attention to your own health because chances are, they already do for theirs! Luckily, there are ways you can help yourself by paying closer attention to how many fruits and vegetables you eat, how much sleep you get, and whether you need to see a doctor. So, let’s take a look at some examples of famous people who passed away due to health conditions.
Celebrity deaths caused by health conditions
Below we will talk about several different cases of famous people dying due to health conditions. Make sure to keep reading until the end where we will discuss the most common cause of death for rich people.
Kylie Jenner – aged 24
In early May 2018, the media was alerted to the fact that Kylie Jenner had undergone surgery to reduce her hip size.
In June 2009, just over one year ago, music legend Michael Jackson passed away at age 50 from what was later determined to be cardiac arrhythmia caused by acute cocaine use and chronic sleep deprivation.
Many people may not know that before he achieved fame as a singer, actor and dancer, MJ spent several years struggling with his weight. He would go through phases where he would either eat very little or overeat, making it hard for him to maintain his ideal physique.
In fact, some of his earlier songs include references to dieting and exercise, showing how much effort he put into keeping himself in shape.
But after becoming famous, his efforts seemed to disappear. It is thought that his eating habits became more extravagant due to stress and pressure he experienced due to his rising popularity.
Alongside his long battle with obesity, many speculate that alcohol played a role in helping him forget his worries. However, reports indicate that he was drinking less than ever before so this can’t hold true for his death.
Michael's family found out about his death when they noticed something wasn't right during a rehearsal for The Victory Tour, which he had been preparing for since early 2010. At that time, he only admitted to having used cocaine twice six months prior, but now it appeared that habit returned.
In August 2014, reports came in that comedian Robin William had been found unconscious at his home in California. When paramedics arrived they performed CPR but he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The coroner determined that the cause of death was suicide by hanging. However, before he took his own life, he suffered from severe depression due to several factors including his son’s illness and his dwindling acting career.
He was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder and alcohol use disorders.
While it is too early to determine if this contributed to his decision to take his own life, mental health issues are a risk factor for someone who commits suicide.
It is important to be aware of warning signs of suicidal behavior as well as what you can do to help prevent suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of depression, consider talking about them openly and seeking professional assistance.
On December 8, 1980, just over one year after he released his final album with his band The Beatles, singer-songwriter and musician John Lennon was shot and killed in front of his apartment building by Mark David Chapman.
On April 20, 1981, three days before his murder, Lennon made an appearance at Fort Lauderdale’s All Night Music Festival where he performed two songs (“Happy Birthday to You” and “Oh Happy Day!”) as well as sang several lines from his 1971 hit song “Give Peace A Chance.”
During the performance of “Happy Birthday To You,” Lennon is said to have stated loudly and clearly, “Fuck off, you bastards!”
He then turned towards the audience and asked if anyone wanted to see some “real music.” At this point, many in attendance began chanting back, “We want peace! We want love!”
Within minutes of leaving the stage, Lennon had returned to his first floor studio space and recorded what would be his last ever song, which he wrote himself. It is called simply, “God.
In July 2011, reports surfaced that singer Amy Winehouse had passed away due to alcohol-related health complications. She was 27 years old at the time of her death.
Winehouse achieved moderate fame as a member of The Recording Academy’s (the organization for music recording professionals) Grammy Award winning group, The Vocalists.
In addition to her work with The Vocalists, she also competed in the singing competition show, The Voice.
Her career began to take off after she released her first album, Back To Black, which featured the hit song, “Rehab.” This song is about overcoming addictions.
After her death, many people paid tribute to her by sharing their experiences with addiction and how it affected them.
Addiction can sometimes seem like an unstoppable force, but there are things you can do to help yourself. Learning more about addiction and its symptoms may help you recognize early signs so you can get the help you need before it’s too late.
In early January, reports began to spread around the internet that David Bowie was no longer alive. The sources of this information were mostly second-hand accounts and rumors posted online by people who claimed they had spoken with the singer or his family.
Many of these sources said Bowie was in very poor health and was being treated for cancer at a hospital in Switzerland. Some said he was not responding to treatments and instead received palliative care, while others said he had died several days earlier.
No one has officially confirmed whether or not Bowie is still alive, but according to his manager, there have been no signs indicating otherwise. Since learning about Bowie’s death, his management team has refused to comment publicly and even took down their Facebook page as a sign of mourning. It is also important to note that although Bowie’s body was found in Switzerland, his funeral service was held in London.
While it is true that celebrities are more likely to gain attention when they are living, it is also possible to make an assumption about how long someone will live after publishing a statement saying they are dead. By leaving formal comments off the shelf, it shows a lack of interest in commenting on their deaths and possibly signaling that they might be planning to disappear again soon.
In 1997, when Britain’s most famous woman died at age 35, many people were shocked. Others mourned her loss however, as she had made waves both for her beauty and influence.
Diana was born into an aristocratic family in Portsmouth, England in 1961. She never lived anywhere but London or New York City so she didn’t have too many roots. But her relatives still consider her their own daughter even if they don’t know her well.
In 1982, just two years after becoming engaged to Prince Charles, the then-20 year old attended a private party at Kensington Palace that ended tragically. While leaving, she was fatally shot by her bodyguard outside of the palace gates.
She left behind a six-year-old son who would later be named William Arthur David. Since she lost her life protecting him, her parents raised him as their own child.
He is now 18 years old and attends several royal events with his father. He does not get paid for attending though, like his biological siblings do.
After years of staying busy with music, film, and other ventures, it was announced in November 2018 that Paul McCartney would be retiring from performing as part of his final tour. He will also step down from his position as the singer for the band he founded alongside John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.
McCartney’s decision to call it quits comes more than 40 years after he and guitarist Jeff Beck formed their first group together at age 19. Since then, they have gone on to become one of the most influential duos in rock history, collaborating on songs like “Drive My Car” and “Too Many Thoughts.”
Their success didn’t come without controversy, however. Both musicians have been accused of plagiarizing or copying parts of songs they wrote together for their own projects.
In fact, there is even a website dedicated to tracking every instance where this has happened! They have compiled all of these instances into what is called the ‘Plagiarism Tracker.
We may never know what really happened to Charlie Sheen, but his death is most likely due to suicide. The coroner announced that he died of an “accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound” earlier this month.
Sheen was reportedly in rehab at the time of his passing and had checked into a hotel under a fake name just days before. Accordingy reports, he left the hotel with a handgun and no one has seen or heard from him since.
The police were called after staff found his body and the gun nearby. It is not known if he killed himself inside the room or outside of it, but either way there are strong indications that he took his own life.
Many people believe that Sheen could not handle the stress of being away from his family and career so he shot himself instead. Others say he suffered a total mental breakdown and couldn't deal with things anymore.
There have been many theories about how he ended up dead, but none of them seem very plausible. He will be remembered for his wild lifestyle however, so his legacy won’t fade any time soon.
