Walker had Issues With his Ex and Daughter, but was Patching Things up, Says Uncle

Paul Walker’s family are in the midst of planning an emotional final goodbye to the Fast and Furious actor a week on from his tragic death, with funeral plans thought to be underway now the autopsy has been completed.

The actor died of “combined effects of “traumatic and thermal injuries” (impact and fire) and his friend of “multiple traumatic injuries” (only impact,) according to autopsy results revealed by the Los Angeles county coroner.

His Cousin told MailOnline he fears Walker’s body was so badly burned family might not be able to have a traditional funeral.

“They have not decided when the funeral will take place, it is still a work in progress,” a friend of Paul and his family told Hollywood Life.

But, Paul touched so many lives before his untimely death,  his family wants all of them to unite and grieve their tragic loss together.

Funeral arrangements for Paul are being handled by the Fast & Furious  star’s on- and off-screen family members.

According to E! , Tyrese Gibson,  is mostly helping the bereaved family in funeral arrangements.

Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell was pictured for the first time since the tragic crash on Thursday when she returned to his house.

The 23-year-old student  Pilchard-Gosnell dated Walker for seven years and she is being now comforted by her mother, Julie, as she struggles to cope following the “horrible” accident.

“Paul was a really good guy and Jasmine is broken up by this. I went to Thanksgiving with him, played golf with him,” said Jasmine’s uncle, Barton Bruner.

“They had their ups and downs but they were together and looking to spend a bright future together. This is horrible news and unexpected. Her mother is with her and she is comforting her,” added Bruner.

Amanda Bynes Doing Wonderful and Home for Xmas

Amanda Bynes has hopes of going back to college after her six month stint in a Malibu psychiatric facility. She is now at  home with her parents for the holidays.

The 27-year-old actress was spotted leaving her family’s house in Los Angeles early Thursday morning alongside her mother Lynn.

We’re happy to see Bynes looking healthy and even back to her original dark hair color! 

She will now start her outpatient therapy. Her mother still has a conservatorship over Bynes’ estate. 

However, in time, she will have to face her criminal charges. 

Late last month, the judge reviewed Bynes’ court-ordered medical evaluation and determined that the actress was capable of understanding the DUI charges she faced (stemming from an April 2012 incident in which she allegedly side-swiped a police cruiser).

She will next appear in court on Jan 7, 2014, when both parties will need to reevaluate her condition.

Walker and Rodas Killed by Impact, Says Autopsy; “Fast 7” Production Shut Down

Paul-Walker-Davidoff-Cool-Water-paul-walker-22764081-1363-2048

The autopsy is back on beloved actor Paul Walker and prove that the actor was killed by impact and fire, along with driver Roger Rodas who was killed by impact alone. The L.A. Coroner’s Office released the autopsy Wednesday.

Results of toxicology testing will take another six to eight weeks.

Although sheriffs are still investigating what caused Rodas to lose control of the vehicle, the auto shop (owned by Walker and Rodas) released a statement on yesterday saying that their investigation concludes their was a factory malfunction with the vehicle that was rarely driven. They added that the straight line skid marks on the street showed that their was a leakage from the vehicle that caused an explosion in the front of the Porsche Carrera GT, rather than the back of the vehicle, where the engine is located. 

Meanwhile, Universal Pictures announced that it has shut down production for an unspecified time on “Fast & Furious 7.”

The seventh installment of the street racings series started shooting in September and was on break for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Sources say Walker’s Auto Accident Caused From Mechanical Failure, not Drag Racing

20131203-034305.jpg

Sources connected to Always Evolving — the auto shop co-owned by Walker and the Porsche driver Roger Rodas say the sports car crashed as a result of mechanical failure. After investigating the remnants of the vehicle, they believe it had a steering fluid leak. The auto shop stored the vehicle.

Apparently, they saw evidence of a fluid burst and subsequent fluid trail before the skid marks at the accident scene. They claim there is an absence of skid marks until just before the point of impact. They say if Roger had lost control the skid marks would show swerving, but instead the marks were in a straight line. They feel this cements the theory the driver didn’t have steering control. Another thing that was so suspect is that the fire spreading so quickly in the front of the car. The sources say flames would be expected in the rear where the engine is … but fire in the front reinforces their theory of a fluid leak of some sort.

TMZ claims the $500,000 Porsche Carrera GT was NOT modified and was driven rarely so they believe any failure must be a factory defect.

Another close source said, “Roger was a world class driver” — and while he might have been speeding, as cops have said, the notion he just lost control, doesn’t coincide with the street debris, skid marks and vehicle remnant evidence.

UPDATE: Fans soon started to gather at the crash site last night, leaving flowers and candles for the deceased. The vigil was held very shortly after law enforcement cleared the scene — removing the bodies of Paul and the driver Roger Rodas … as well as the charred wreckage.

Beloved actor Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Walker, was with her father at his charity event, right before he died on Saturday, Nov. 30. The Fast & Furious star was 40, when the sports car he was riding in burst into flames.

Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by a racing team partner, friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas, that slammed into a light pole and burst into flames in an office park in the community of Valencia in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.

Cops say speed clearly played a major factor in the accident, but an exact cause has not been determined yet. Figure 8 patterns were also spotted close to the wreckage.

The crash occurred on Hercules Street in the Rye Canyon Industrial Park.

Several of Paul’s friends were attending the event … which was very near to where the deadly accident happened.

“We were collecting toys for the Indiana tornado victims and the Philippine [typhoon] victims,” says Jim Torp, who attended the event held by Always Evolving, a Valencia, Calif.-based automotive company. “There were dozens of high-end race cars and custom-built cars on display.”

Universal Studios soon issued a statement after the incident saying,

“All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the FAST AND FURIOUS films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.”

A witness to the crash said the car was in half, but initially, they couldn’t tell if anyone was in the vehicle. Soon after, however, they could tell that the passengers were still inside.

Outdoorsman, ocean addict, adrenaline junkie… and I do some acting on the side. 

That’s what actor now angel Paul Walker had posted on the banner of his Twitter profile. It looks like the actor lost his life doing what he loved…racing.

It truly saddens my heart to report that actor Paul Walker lost his life earlier today (around 3:30 pm) in a car crash. He was 40 years old. The Fast & Furious star was involved in a deadly crash with a friend; both lives were lost.

The friend was driving a Porsche GT when control of the car was lost and it hit a tree in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles.

Walker was on his way to a charity car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief.

Paul Walker’s official twitter and Facebook account have let out statements:

It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. – #TeamPW

Although the actor was in the passenger seat, the Porsche was Walkers. A close friend confirmed that the actor had just purchased the vehicle and had been taking friends for rides in the car.

The car reportedly burst into flames immediately.

Our condolences go out to his friends, family and the set of Fast 7, as well.

Me and a friend were just talking about the actor earlier this week.

Although we knew him to be a talented and physically beautiful actor, he also seemed like a nice and sweet guy.

Celeb friends tweeted their condolences all day today including,
