Philip Seymour Hoffman's Drug Dealer Linked to Other Celebrity Drug Overdoses

Philip Seymour Hoffman's drug dealer linked to other celebrity drug overdoses including Amy Winehouse and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The alleged drug dealer suspected of selling Philip Seymour Hoffman drugs has been closely acquainted with other drug-addicted celebrities who have died from overdoses, including Amy Winehouse and artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Robert Vineberg, also known as Robert Aaron, has a long list of credits as a musician, and an equally long list of connections to addicted celebrities.
Vineberg, 57, has admitted to being addicted to heroin, but denies selling Hoffman any of the drug found in his apartment.
He is now facing a felony charge of heroin possession with intent to sell following his arrest on in his apartment on Mott Street in the pricey Nolita district of Manhattan.
The Canadian-born musician appeared on the New York scene as a teenager in the 1970s and befriended other artists and musicians.
He was a friend of the late New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat in the 1980s.
According to TMZ, the pair spent a lot of time doing heroin together in Vineberg's apartment - the same apartment Hoffman allegedly visited to score heroin.
Basquiat died of a heroin overdose in 1988.
Vineberg's stepdaughter Christine Soto admitted that Hoffman had visited the apartment where her stepfather sold drugs before adding: 'But he had nothing to do with what killed him.'
