[Gossip] Philip Seymour Hoffman's Alleged Drug Dealer Linked To Other Celebrities Who Overdosed
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.17.2014



TMZ reports that the drug dealer that allegedly sold heroin to Philip Seymour Hoffman was friends with three celebrities who ended up dying of overdose, including Hoffman.

Robert Vineberg, himself a musician, was also friends with Amy Winehouse and New York artist Jean-Michael Basquiat. Basquiat and Vineberg did heroin in the 1980s in Vineberg's apartment, which Hoffman visited years later to get the drug. Basquiat injected the heroine with a needle and ended up dying of an overdose in 1988. He was depressed at the time due to the death of Andy Warhol. Vineberg was also good friends with Winehouse but there's no proof they did drugs together. Winehouse died of acute alcohol poisoning in 2011. This was after years of drug abuse.

Vineberg has denied selling Hoffman the drugs that he overdosed on.
