How did that guy in Milli Vanilli die?

: milli vanilli

Why: Margo said it's not her fault that she rear-ended someone - it was raining really hard.

Eric said if they were around today, Milli Vanilli would have their own reality show.

Answer: In the years following the demise of Milli Vanilli, Rob Pilatus struggled with substance abuse and suicide attempts. After an unsuccessful comeback attempt, the duo stopped speaking.

In 1996, Pilatus served 3 months in jail for assault, vandalism, and attempted robbery. He also spent 6 months in rehab.

On April 2, 1998, he was found dead in a hotel room in Frankfurt, where - by the way - he was born to a soldier and a stripper. His death was ruled as accidental of a suspected overdose on alcohol and prescription pills.

The More You Know: In case you missed it, the other guy, Fab Morvan, had his own "comeback" a few years ago. His solo album Love Revolution was described as a "solo debut of impressively performed pop-rock and irresistible island rhythms... A remarkable rebirth that deserves to be heard and embraced." It's so tremendous, you can't even buy it on Amazon.
