LAWRENCE BLAMES PROBLEMS ON POT

Actor-comedian Martin Lawrence says marijuana made him do it.

Funnyman Lawrence tells USA Today heavy pot smoking drove him to much of the bad behavior that made headlines over the past several years.

Lawrence's publicist says the 37-year-old father of three doesn't smoke dope anymore.

Lawrence cited events since 1996 -- some fueled by marijuana -- that made the papers, including two incidents in which he was found to be carrying a gun.

In 1999, Lawrence went into a coma for three days after collapsing while jogging in near 100-degree heat wearing heavy clothing and a wool cap, a bizarre episode that Lawrence said changed his life.


BILLY JOEL RIPS REHAB

Billy Joel says the substance abuse and psychiatric clinic where he spent 10 days last month did not live up its billing.

The Grammy-winning entertainer told the Chicago Sun-Times that Silver Hill Hospital's reputation as "posh" is a "crock."

Joel called the Connecticut facility a "dump" and said the food was "terrible."

He told the Sun-Times he went into rehab after spending a period of time on his "red wine diet," in which he drinks nothing but red wine.


MARLEE MATLIN HAS THIRD CHILD

Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin has given birth to her third child.

Matlin's publicist says the 36-year-old delivered a son, Tyler Daniel Grandalski, at a Los Angeles-area hospital last Thursday.

Matlin and police officer husband Kevin Grandalski celebrate their ninth anniversary on Aug. 29.

Deaf from a childhood illness, Matlin won the Academy Award for Best Actress in her debut motion picture, "Children of a Lesser God" in 1986.
