I would have done the same thing in his position. People talk about pain, grief, sadness when one passes but the financial aspect of a funeral is a real thing too. Now it's one less thing to worry about for them. No money in the world can bring their daughter back but it's heartwarming nonetheless to see the amount of support the familly received.

Well, I think the term I was looking for was clinically insane? Sorry if I was unclear. :icant: :roll: 

And yeah, I don't know if he's a sociopath but he probably has some kind of personality disorder.

It'd be so nice if Xtina attended her funeral. Maybe she doesn't feel with the freedom to do so since they just met once, but I hope Jacquie or Adam ask her to. We all should tweet Jacquie.

No don't bug Jacquie. She is really heartbroken and doesn't need y'all bothering her.

No offense, but don't people have life insurance for this stuff?  If you live in NY or GA and need some coverage DM. I got you!

I was about to say this. Jacquie is really suffering, let's not do that.

I feel like it's too often that people conflate mental illness (bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, etc.) with sociopaths and psychopaths. There is a distinct, important difference.

I'm still feeling heartbroken.  This is such a tragedy.  I'm glad Adam stepped in to take care of funeral expenses.

I don't think I'm ever going to pass judgement on Adam Levine ever again. It's incredibly humble that he personally called and offered to pay for the funeral and airfare. I'm even more impressed that he didn't flaunt that he was going to finance it, but instead did it privately. Good for him!

This is exactly what I was trying to say earlier. Sociopathy/psychopathy and other anti-social personalities/disorders aren't really the same thing as mental illnesses. I'm only a layman, not an expert, so I'm cautious talking about the subject.

I'm not surprised tbh. I remember a contestant on The Voice exposed her ass saying Shakabra didn't mingle with her team or the other contestants at all. The show was just a bonus check for her.

Some of you need to stop making this shit about X, and saying what she should and shouldn't do.

I'm surprised none of you asked that she do a tribute at the Grammys...

As for Shakira, she barely posts anything on twitter that isn't related to Football or Music.

They've said the same shit about Christina, so I'm not about to believe or be bothered by this.

I don't remember anyone saying Christina didn't form relationships with her contestants. She still keeps in touch with Chris, Sylvia, Jacquie, and now Alisan even after the show.

Wow - am so happy her family has raised so much on the GoFundMe. Last I looked it was like $165,000 or something. Insane! All tax free :)

Well, you have Tony Vincent claiming she didn't know anything about the last 24 contestants in his season.

Then you have "The Wanted" saying she ignored them, etc.

So either I choose to believe all of it, choose to believe none of it, or choose to believe it's not some huge deal one way or the other....I go with option 3.

If they lived in the right state (like GA or TX), the Grimmies could damn near move and pay off a new house to start over in with that GoFund...either way, glad they will not have to worry about financials for a while.

Tina isn't even talking about that though. People from other teams or people that don't know coaches might think there is a bias (like Cassadee Pope from Blake's team not being fond of Adam).

But he's talking about Shakira's OWN team calling her out for being ice cold. I know what Tina is talking about where the contestant was upset that other coaches on other teams would talk to their teams off camera but Shakira wouldn't talk to hers. And then after this contestant was eliminated Shakira didn't even talk to them!

Team Shakira guys exposed her as selfish and self centered. No wonder why she is friends with Yonka.

I believe Grimmie was the main breadwinner of the family at this point and her mom has had cancer several times and I believe has it again. So in the big picture, it might not really be that much money. But it's good now that they don't have to take funeral expenses out of that amount with Adam paying for it

Right, Jacquie's mom even released a statement saying that Jacquie was too distraught to comment

http://www.app.com/story/news/crime/201 ... /85757466/
COLTS NECK - As news of “Voice’’ singer Christina Grimmie’s killing spread, fellow “Voice’’ contestant Jacqui Lee of Colts Neck was too distraught to comment, according to her mother, Denise Lee.
“Please send strength and faith to the Grimmie family,’’ Denise Lee said.
Jacquie Lee and Grimmie, and their parents and families, developed a close bond while contestants on “the Voice,’’ the NBC talent competition show for vocalists, Denise Lee said.
