Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys In Declining Health

We are saddened to hear about Brian Wilson, musician and founding member of The Beach Boys, having been placed under a conservatorship following a Los Angeles court ruling on Thursday.

Wilson consents to the conservatorship.

According to the court documents, Wilson is “unable to care for his person,” has a “Major Neurocognitive Disorder” and “lacks capacity to give informed medical consent for medications.”

Wilson’s conservators are ordered to consult with his children regarding all material related healthcare decisions, the court documents said.

According to the Wilson family, the decision to place Brian under a conservatorship came following the death of his wife, Melinda Wilson, in January.

Miss Teen USA Steps Down – BUT WHY?

Miss Teen USA Steps Down – BUT WHY?

Miss Teen USA UmaSofia Srivastava has stepped down from her role as Miss Teen USA – just days after Miss USA Noelia Voight did the same – blaming mental health concerns and a conflict of values with the parent organization.

On Wednesday May 8, 2024 Srivastava wrote in an Instagram post that she was prematurely stepping away from her 2023 Miss Teen USA title, saying that her “personal values no longer fully align with the direction of the organization.”

Srivastava, 17, of New Jersey, was the first Miss Teen USA winner of mixed Mexican and Indian descent. In her statement announcing her resignation, Yahoo! reports Srivastava said she would continue her advocacy work on behalf of the Lotus Petal Foundation and the Bridge of Books Foundation. She also thanked “those who support me for who I am and have always been, not for who I’ve momentarily become.”
