Owens was diagnosed with the condition in 2004 after passing out while teaching at a New Jersey high school.

“We’ve learned a new us,” Latifah said at the time. “We’ve gotten a lot closer and we’ve learned each other on a whole different, deeper level.”

“As a caregiver – it’s just like being a parent, like some things really don’t matter,” Latifah said. “All the kind of frivolous things sort of fall to the side because there’s something way more important than all that. And when we go through these things together as a family, I realize, these are the important things, these are the important moments.”

“The House of Givenchy is sad to report the passing of its founder Hubert de Givenchy, a major personality of the world of French Haute Couture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century,” the statement said. “He will be greatly missed.”

He had his first fashion show at age 24 in February 1952, according to The Times. It was an instant hit with press and retailers.

“He was among those designers who placed Paris firmly at the heart of world fashion post 1950 while creating a unique personality for his own fashion label,” said Bernard Arnault, the chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH, the luxury goods conglomerate that owns the brand.

“In both prestigious long dresses and daywear, Hubert de Givenchy has brought together two rare qualities: to be innovative and timeless,” Arnault said in a statement, according to WWD

When Givenchy retired from fashion in 1995 the brand was led by John Galliano, then Alexander McQueen, Julien Macdonald and Riccardo Tisci, People reported. Clare Waight Keller is the current artistic director of the brand.

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of a great man and artist I have had the honor to meet and get to know since my appointment at Givenchy,” Keller said in a statement on her Instagram page Monday.

“Not only was he one of the most influential fashion figures of our time, whose legacy still influences modern day dressing, but he also was one of the chicest most charming men I have ever met. The definition of a true gentleman, that will stay with me forever. 

“My deepest thoughts are with his loved ones in this difficult time.”

Dear Kobe ... LeBron animated over Bryant scoring Oscar

LeBron James watched Kobe Bryant score big again.

But he's focused on a different shiny trophy than the one his former rival snagged Sunday night.

James joined Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal and other current and former NBA players to congratulate Bryant after the Los Angeles Lakers superstar won an Academy Award in the animated short film category.

Holding his Oscar, Bryant later said, "I feel better than winning a championship, to be honest with you. I swear I do."

On Monday, James said he watched Bryant's film, "Dear Basketball," which was based on a poem the five-time champion wrote in 2015 in advance of his retirement from playing, the night it debuted.

"It was phenomenal," James said.

But while he and Bryant had a fierce on-court rivalry, James, who won acclaim for a supporting role in the comedy "Trainwreck" and owns a film production company, said he isn't driven to match Bryant's Hollywood haul.

"Nah, it's never been one of my goals," he said of winning an Oscar. "But now that I'm in a movie and film and TV business and doing so many things, if at some point we can be nominated and win the Oscar, that would be something that I never thought that would happen for sure. We've got some things in the works, so we'll see what happens."

James has served an executive producer for several TV series and his company is working on documentary about Muhammad Ali. He's also planning a sequel to "Space Jam," which starred Michael Jordan.

During his acceptance speech, Bryant took a swipe at conservative commentator Laura Ingraham, who recently lectured James and Kevin Durant after they were critical of President Trump.

"As basketball players we're supposed to shut up and dribble," Bryant said. "I'm glad we do a little but more than that."

James acknowledged Bryant's line on Twitter, posting: #WeAreMoreThanShutUpDribble.

Middleweight fighter Jermall Charlo was at the 40/40 Club in Manhattan when he got involved in a fight around 3 a.m. the Daily News reported.

According to the New York Post, one of Charlo’s assistants handed one of the bag, which contained $40,000 in cash and $115,000 worth of jewelry, to one of the five women at the boxer’s table. Surveillance video from the club shows one of Charlo’s friends taking off his shirt, then handing the bag to a woman in the club, 40/40 spokesman Didier Morais told the Daily News.

When Charlo, 27, returned to his table, the money -- and the women -- were gone, the Post reported.

“We, of course, have given all footage to the NYPD and have cooperated as we always do for the last 15 years,” Morais said. “The bag in question was handed to one of the girls with the Charlo party by a friend of the party host and she walked out of the club with it.”

Surveillance cameras showed the five women leaving the club with the bag, the Daily News reported.

Charlo, who is 26-0, held the International Boxing Federation’s light middleweight title until February 2016, when he moved up to the middleweight class, the Daily News reported.
