It appears that Soul Train creator, Don Cornelius has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. We here at RapReviews send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of that the man they called Big D leaves behind. While "Soul Train" prominently featured R&B acts, many hip-hop acts were also guests on the show including RUN-DMC, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, OutKast, Coolio, Public Enemy and several more.
Don Cornelius -- who famously created "Soul Train" was found dead in his Sherman Oaks, CA home this morning ... and law enforcement sources tell us it appears he committed suicide.
We're told cops discovered the body at around 4 AM PT. Law enforcement sources tell us ... Cornelius died from a gunshot wound to the head and officials believe the wound was self-inflicted.
We're told Cornelius was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
"Soul Train" changed the landscape of television when it debuted in 1971 and ran until 2006.
Officials have notified Don's family.
Cornelius was 75.
During Don's bitter divorce proceedings in 2009, he told an L.A. judge he was suffering from "significant health issues" and wanted to "finalize this divorce before I die."
Cornelius was arrested in 2008 for beating up his wife. He pled no contest to misdemeanor domestic violence and was placed on 3 years probation. His probation just terminated.
The divorce was granted in 2010.
Sources close to Don tell us ... the TV icon was plagued with health issues for years ... including a stroke and a condition that required brain surgery.
