Rapper’s death was overdose

A medical examiner’s investigator says Chris Kelly of the ’90s rap duo Kriss Kross died of a drug overdose.

Investigator Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta said Monday that a toxicology screening showed the 34-year-old Kelly had a mixture of drugs in his system when he was pronounced dead May 1. However, Honey said she did not know which specific drugs Kelly had used.

Exit confirmed

Fred Armisen has confirmed he has left “Saturday Night Live” after 11 years.

Armisen dispelled any doubt about his exit in an interview posted Monday by comedy website Splitsider.

“SNL” often doesn’t announce its cast changes, but the show’s season finale in May concluded with a farewell for Armisen and Bill Hader.

Armisen says he felt as though his departure from “SNL” was obvious considering in his last sketch he sang “It’s been a lovely night with you” as British punk rock character Ian Rubbish.

Armisen says he left partly because the IFC sketch show “Portlandia” was demanding more time and because “it felt like a very healthy, good time to do it.”

Babies arrive

•It was a girl for Tracy Morgan and fiancée Megan Wollover. Maven Sonae Morgan was born Tuesday, a rep for the “30 Rock” actor told People magazine.

Morgan has three grown sons from a previous marriage.
