The Grammy Award-winner joined the successful soul group in 1968 and was featured on a number of hits, including “I Can’t Get Next to You,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and “Ball of Confusion.” He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989 as a member of the Temptations
Edwards was born in Birmingham, Alabama., on Feb. 3, 1943, but considered Detroit his home.
He was singing with a different group, the Contours, before joining The Temptations after the group fired Ruffin.
Edwards left the group around the time it split with Motown in the mid-1970s, but returned in 1980 when it reunited with Motown. He reunited with and split from the group several more times, until finally calling it quits in 1989, according to Rolling Stone.
Edwards scored a solo hit, “Don’t Look Any Further,” in the mid-1980s, which climbed to No. 2 on the R&B chart.
Edwards was married to Ruth Pointer of the Pointer Sisters from 1976 to 1977, and had one daughter, Issa Pointer.
He died Thursday night in Chicago. His family did not release a cause of death.

So sad to hear about the death do former Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards. He was 74. I last saw Dennis at Aretha Franklin’s birthday party in April 2016. We last talked early last year when I was considering having him sing at my parents 50th wedding anniversary. pic.twitter.com/QpiWSrgA6C— rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) February 2, 2018

— Congratulations are in order for Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo. They just welcomed their second daughter.
E! News reported on Friday that the newborn is named Geo Grace Levine.
Geo Grace joins big sister Dusty Rose Levine, 2.
On Wednesday, Levine gave fans a peek at his Valentine’s Day at home with Prinsloo just before she gave birth. In the Instagram post, the model was eating chocolates in sweatpants with a bouquet of roses on the bedside nearby.
“My maniac,” he wrote alongside the photo.
“ROUND 2….” she captioned the post.
In November, Levine spoke with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about having more babies with Prinsloo.
“I want a lot (of babies). I thrive in chaos,” Levine said. “We love it. And, (Behati) wants, like, 100 babies, but I don’t know if I can do that!”

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who was recently evicted from the house in “Celebrity Big Brother,” owes the Georgia Department of Revenue $102,286.37 in unpaid taxes.
In a filing in the Fayette County Superior Court from Dec. 30, 2017, the former “Cosby Show” kid owes $51,469 in unpaid state taxes from 2011 and 2013. She has since accrued $27,806.13 in interest, $12,667.44 in penalties, $10,293.80 in collection fees and $50 in extra costs. Her total now exceeds $100,000.
The filings do not indicate she has paid what she has owed since the Dec. 30 filing.
RadarOnline got the original scoop about her unpaid taxes but didn’t have the updated amount owed.
Pulliam asked to leave the CBS’s reality show on Monday because she was having trouble creating breast milk for her 1-year-old daughter Ella Grace. Her castmates obliged, saving Shannon Elizabeth from a possible blindside.

According to The Associated Press, the actor pulled over his vehicle after a Ferrari clipped it on Tuesday and pulled a 50-year-old woman out of her BMW at the scene.
“He was the hero, he led the charge,” tattoo artist Sean Heirigs said. Heirigs was driving on the road when the crash occurred and told AP that the Ferrari appeared to lose control and go into oncoming traffic before it collided with the BMW and Wilson’s Toyota. Heirigs said that he told his 14-year-old daughter to call for help as he ran to try to assist the woman who had been driving the BMW, which had flipped onto its side.
“She’s crying, she’s screaming, she doesn’t really know what happened, and she was dangling into the passenger side,” Heirigs said. “Her leg was stuck.”
Heirigs said that he and Wilson were able to come up with a plan to get the woman out of the vehicle.
“We were able to get her leg out from being stuck and then she came out and Luke was pulling her through the back trunk area and then we both carried her to the curb,” Heirigs said. “And this was all going on while the Ferrari’s wheels are still spinning and blowing rubber and smoke everywhere, and it’s loud, and you’re smelling lots of smoke, and there’s glass.”
The woman was hospitalized with serious injuries. Wilson and Heirigs were unharmed.
Professional golfer Bill Haas was in the Ferrari at the time of the accident, according to police. The driver, 71-year-old Mark Gibello, was pronounced dead at the scene. Haas was treated for injuries at a nearby hospital. Haas’ manager, Allen Hobbs, told Golf Digest that Haas “escaped serious injuries and has been released from the hospital.”
He had pain and swelling in his legs, but no broken bones. Haas is reportedly returning to his South Carolina home to recover.

LOS ANGELES — Jennifer Aniston and her husband, director Justin Theroux, are separating after two years of marriage.
The couple announced the separation in a statement to The Associated Press Thursday.
“Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly,” the statement released by Aniston’s publicist Stephen Huvane said. “Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.”
The announcement was made “in an effort to reduce any further speculation,” according to the statement.
People reported that Aniston and Theroux met in 2008 but started dating in 2011. Theroux proposed to Aniston on his 41st birthday in August 2012.
The pair had a surprise wedding in 2015, weeks before Theroux turned 44.
According to People, the couple had been spending time apart. Aniston celebrated her 49th birthday without Theroux, but was with Courteney Cox and other friends in Los Angeles. Theroux was seen in New York.
Huvane told The AP the decision to separate “was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.” The couple has no children.
This was the first marriage for Theroux. He dated hair stylist Heidi Bivens for 14 years before they spit in 2011. Aniston was married to Brad Pitt from 2000 to 2005.
