It was a spiritual mission and Stedman held her close during the funeral service. He realised right then and there he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Oprah as a married couple," a source said.

"Stedman feels the two are soul mates, they've lasted together this long and should finally make it official. Stedman also realized that when their days end, he wants to be buried next to Oprah and knows that will only happen if they wed," the source added.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Obituaries,

Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie will miss her aunt's funeral because it clashes with the premiere of Brad Pitt's new movie World War Z.

The Salt actress - who recently revealed she underwent a double mastectomy after she was identified as carrying the BRCA1 cancer gene - lost her aunt Debbie Martin, 61, over the weekend following a battle with breast cancer but Angelina cannot make the funeral in San Diego on Sunday because she will be in London.

"We are making the final arrangements for the funeral as we speak. But we expect it to be this Sunday at noon at El Camino Memorial in Sorrento Valley near our home. Angelina will be in London on Sunday so she won't be able to attend but she has been in touch with us and with various other members of the family, which has obviously been lovely and has meant a lot to us," Debbie's husband Ron told E! News.

Ron also revealed the family are hoping to start a charity to raise money for BRCA genetic testing: "We are currently in the process of setting up a foundation in Debbie's memory and we are hoping to raise money for women who can't afford to get BRCA testing. We are hoping to work with a charity called the Clearity Foundation so that every woman in America will have access to BRCA testing that could save her life--no matter how much money she has."

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen is paying for the funeral of the paparazzi photographer who died while following Justin Bieber's car.

The Anger Management star has paid a generous $12,000 towards 29-year-old Chris Guerra's burial costs after hearing through a photographer pal that his family was trying to raise funds for the service, due to be held on Friday.

"A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It's an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved," the 47-year-old actor told TMZ.

Michael Jackson's funeral

Michael Jackson's burial was delayed for three months in a row over money. The "Thriller" singer died in June 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication but wasn't laid to rest in the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles until September 3 because his sister Janet Jackson paid a $40,000 deposit to secure the spot but wouldn't let the burial go ahead until she was paid back.

In his new book Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson, author Randall Sullivan writes, "Michael's burial had been delayed by wrangling between Janet and the estate, on the one hand and Janet and her family on the other hand. As the only living Jackson with money of her own, Janet had put up the $40,000 deposit at Forest Lawn to secure the burial spot for Michael in the marble Sanctuary of the Ascension. She had refused to let the funeral take place until the money was repaid."

Usher's stepson Kyler GloverUsher's 11-year-old stepson has died, two weeks after he was critically injured in a jet ski accident.

Kyle Glover - the child of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond and her former partner Ryan Glover - passed away yesterday after the family made the heartbreaking decision to turn off his life support machine. Kyle was struck in the head during a jet ski collision while riding an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia, earlier this month and his mother is understandably "devastated" over her loss.

Willie A. Watkins funeral home in Atlanta has confirmed it will be handling the funeral arrangements for the little boy. Last week, Kyle's family asked for prayers as they kept a bedside vigil following the tragic accident. "We know God's in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it's the best way we can all support him now," they said in a statement.

The body of the 36-year-old actor - who was found dead on July 13 - will reportedly be laid to rest in a private service at the weekend.

"Sage will be buried on Saturday. His body was picked up from the coroner by a mortuary that is based in Westwood earlier this week. The funeral will be private and it will be family and friends only and will be celebration of his life," a source said.

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that authorities investigating Sage's death believe he was a drug dealer who sold Hydrocodone - more commonly known as Vicodin - but don't think he was an addict himself as his build was not typical of habitual drug users. "He was pudgy, and drug addicts are almost always rail thin," a source told TMZ.
