(Newser) – One person who's not coming to Rodney King's funeral: his own fiancée. The king family plans to hold services in Hollywood next Saturday, but Cynthia Kelley isn't invited, sources tell TMZ. Why the riff? The family doubts her description of King dying in his own pool, considering he was such a good swimmer. What's more, she's made no effort to help with arrangements. Meanwhile, law enforcement is still investigating the death as an accident. See more at TMZ.
