Gay Dad Given 18 Months After Being Diagnosed With Throat Cancer

One of Britain’s first gay fathers has been given just 18 months to live after being diagnosed with throat cancer, his daughter has revealed.

Tony Drewitt-Barlow, from Essex, made history in 2000 by becoming the first same-sex surrogate parent in Britain along with his partner Barrie.

But he is now facing a slim chance of survival after aggressive throat cancer from more than a decade ago returned.

The fatal diagnosis has been revealed by his 18-year-old daughter Saffron – who has been described as the ‘ultimate daddy’s girl’ after the couple lavished her with gifts and a £5,000-per-month allowance.

The disease is said to have reappeared despite several rounds of chemotherapy – with the ‘whole side of his face gone’.

Tony is now waiting to have an operation in Florida, where the millionaire couple live with their five children for half the year.

Doctors fear that sepsis could set in but he is on antibiotics in a bid to keep the risk of infection down.

Saffron told the Sun: ‘They’ve given him 18 months to live if he doesn’t have the operation. If he has the op, there’s a 50/50 chance he’ll live.

‘We’re all devastated. My Daddy (Barrie) never shows emotions but he is completely beside himself.

Sarah Hassan Appreciates Hubby In Beautiful Birthday Message

The number one person in Sarah Hassan’s life is undoubtedly her hubby. In fact, most of her Instagram posts are about him. Martin Dale is the name of the lucky man who bagged himself one of Kenya’s most beautiful women.

The two got married on 25th February 2017. It was a truly private wedding that caught many by surprise.

Since then, they have primarily been based in Los Angeles.

In fact, due to the level of privacy she has upheld, many media outlets started making speculations instead of digging for the real details.

LOVE WORKS! This Photo Of Sarah Hassan Glowing Proves That She’s Enjoying Married Life

At some point, Sarah got fed up and came out to clear the air, noting that Martin is not South African and that their wedding footage would not be sold.

“So, I decided to just correct a few things that keep spiraling in the wrong direction.
1: The name is Dale not Ndela or Ndale.
2: He is NOT South African.
3: We are NOT relocating to South Africa
4: Our wedding footage/ rights to the footage has NOT been and will NOT be sold to a private production group!
#LoveAndLight 💜💜💜✌”

For his birthday, Sarah took to Instagram to share a beautiful but short message:

martin dale

“Wishing a happy birthday to my incredibly amazing husband!! I love you & I thank God for you everyday ❤️❤️❤️”

So SAD! Actress Jennifer Aniston Divorces For The Second Time

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have split after just two and a half years of marriage.

The decision to go their separate ways ‘was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year’, according to a statement released on Thursday through Jennifer’s publicist.

The 49-year-old Friends star became engaged to the Leftovers actor, 46, in August 2012, and they married in a surprise ceremony at their LA home on August 5, 2015.

The couple’s statement says they would have handled their separation privately, but they wanted to counter tabloid speculation and ‘convey the truth directly.’

Lillian Muli Finally Speaks About Her Painful Divorce

They say they intend to maintain love and respect for each other.

Jennifer and Justin were last pictured together during a New Year’s getaway trip in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

It definitely seems as if the power couple have spent plenty of time apart as the Mulholland Drive actor has been often spotted by himself in New York City which is away from their home in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile Jennifer celebrated her 49th birthday just days ago and Justin was noticeably absent in the photos shared on social media from the festivities in Malibu, California.

The Friends star was joined by gal pals Courteney Cox, Andrea Bendewald, Leigh Kilton-Smith and Kristin Hahn on Sunday.

The previous night Jennifer was spotted sharing friendly hugs and kisses with Pharrell Williams outside of Ellen DeGeneres’ star-studded 60th birthday party in LA.

Uncle Accused Of Raping And Murdering 20 Year Old Niece

Chilling CCTV footage captured the moment a builder drove off in his pick-up truck with two women bound and gagged in the back – as he was jailed for at least 40 years for the rape and murder of his 20-year-old niece.

‘Utterly wicked’ Mujahid Arshid kidnapped Celine Dookhran and another women before taking them to a £1.5million house he was renovating where he raped and slit both of their throats.

The 33-year-old tried to blame the murder of his niece Celine on the surviving victim, claiming that she murdered her in a jealous rage after he had consensual sex with both of them.

But today a jury rejected his ‘nonsense’ explanation and Arshid was found guilty of murder and attempted murder at the Old Bailey, causing relatives in the public gallery to cheer and for Arshid to tell them to ‘shut up’, before shouting: ‘I will prove that b***h wrong’.

Meet The Kenyan Travel Blogger Who Quit Her Job To Cruise The World

Quitting your job and starting to travel the world is no mean feat, considering how expensive the venture can be. However, that did not deter Kenyan born, US based travel blogger Sally G from doing it.

She was based in Atlanta before selling all she had and embarked on a journey to tour the world. Not many would do such a daring thing. After a 3 month stay in Croatia, I caught up with the beauty who stopped by in Kenya for several weeks.

Sally has previously been to Australia, Indonesia, Italy, France, Turkey and other beautiful destinations. She documents all of that on her blog, her main theme being budget traveling. She has won the hearts of many, and her recent eBook titled “Luxury Travel On A Budget.”

sally g 76

Her warm, charming and lovable persona is something that struck me at first. Having had a deep conversation on her bold decision, this is what she told me about her travel diaries.

Harun: Why did you quit your job to travel the world?

Sally: I enjoy traveling immensely. With every trip I took, my wanderlust grew and I wanted to travel even more. My limitation became the amount of time off I got from work. Working in corporate America gives you very little time off. You barely get to scratch the surface of a new destination. I wanted to be able to travel slowly & truly immerse myself in the travel experience abroad and share the experience with my followers.

H: What were you doing in Kenya before relocating to the US?

S: I worked for Abercrombie & Kent and Friends of Conservation as an administrative assistant.

H: What was the culture shock like when you landed in Kenya?

S: It was both good and bad. Good in the sense that there was a lot of visible developments in infrastructure. Bad especially in my hometown of Nakuru that has gotten very congested and some areas especially in the CBD lack planning as a result.

sally g 43

H: What is the most Kenyan thing you’ve encountered while traveling the world?

S: Meeting people during my travels wearing the Kenyan flag wrist band always VERY exciting. I have seen non-Kenyans wearing it too. Our coffee is pretty much everywhere. I get a huge sense of of pride when I see Kenyan coffee advertised at coffee shops around the world.

H: As a budget traveler, you seem to be doing stuff quite well. What is that one best tip you can give to someone who wishes to travel the world at minimal cost?

S: The biggest misconception I encounter from people is that travel is expensive. Good news is that it isn’t. My top tip to share to a budget traveler is: travel during low season. You get the benefit of low costs in transportation/accommodations/tour activities and it is less crowded.

H: What’s your most memorable childhood moment while growing up in Nakuru?

S: Listening to my grandfather tell us stories about his life & details on our lineage. He was a great storyteller.

H: How do you stay in touch with the Kenyan vibe? Which kinda music do you listen to?

S: The Internet has been key to keeping up with family, news, trends etc. I will never lose touch with the Kenyan vibe. I listen to all kinds of music. I find myself listening to country music a lot when I travel as it reminds me of road trips in Kenya with my family as a young girl.

sally g

H: You went to Coachella last year. That must have been an exotic experience. Did you have a rare fan moment with some of your favorite stars?

S: It was my first time at the festival and it was totally worth the hype! The festival is highly organized with many amazing music acts from different genres. My amazing moment started with getting VIP passes from Lady Gaga’s bandmate through a close friend. The best part was meeting Rihanna at a private after party thrown by Revolt. To respect her privacy I held my cool and never asked for selfie but I was secretly dying inside! She’s more stunning in person.

Edith Kimani Has An Adorable Moment With Adopted Elephants [Photos]

H: What are some of the challenges that come with being a travel blogger?

S: Finding your own voice in a saturated field. As a full time travel blogger, living out of a suitcase can be an inconvenience with having to pack and unpack frequently.

H: Tell me about your most recent place to visit and live in, Croatia…what are some of the things you loved and did not like about it?

S: Croatia is an incredibly beautiful country! I was in awe of the natural beauty from the stunning coastline, amazing historic sites that included Game of Thrones shoot locations and wonderful people to boot. My trip was to last a month but I ended up staying for three as I ended falling in love with it.

As this was my first long trip away from home, I did get homesick but for just a bit.

sally g 762

H: Finally, what should Kenyans expect from you representing them globally this year?

I will continue to be a global ambassador to our beloved country Kenya. I will keep encouraging those I meet in my travels to add Kenya as a top travel destination. We have great opportunities for business & many amazing destinations and hidden gems to explore.

DJ Mo Roasts Upcoming Artiste Who Accused Him Of Bribe Extortion With Screenshots

Remember the drama that ensued week ago involving an upcoming “gospel” singer called “Nexxie” and DJ Mo? Well, it has taken a whole new turn.

It turns out that the artiste could not take apparent rejection, so he sent DJ Mo money in the form of a bribe. DJ Mo quickly reversed the money to him, and took screenshots for future reference. This was last year. Fast forward to 2018, Nexxie came out saying that DJ Mo asked for money in order to play his music.

Well, DJ Mo posted evidence that left many mouths wide open. Nexxie, who has now been exposed comes across as a fame thirsty individual who would do anything it takes to make it.

Here’s what DJ Mo put up on his Instagram account:
nexxie 5

Swipe 👆Nexxie, you’ve been looking for fame through me…hope this shines you the glory you’ve so desperately yearned for. My fans need to know wasup…
Morning watu wangu , I don’t like doing this but allow me to put this one clear. Fame is a bad master and for it..fame, most artists will do anything.

Size 8’s sweet birthday message to Dj Mo will make you want to flaunt your love

I meet so many people who believe I can help in their musical journey. Also because of my company, system Unit, I honor most meeting because I am always on the look out for the next big star. Hoping this was one, last year this upcoming artist comes with his manager telling me how famous he want to be , we talked and I advised him the way that’s a wrong move – he goes home and all of a sudden I see 20k pap on my phone – I sent the cash back to his manager –Joyce Kinyanjui. (screenshot last year Sept)

nexxie 1

just to be professional.We forgot that story and I started advising him how he in this industry for the wrong reasons – how I have never taken a bribe and so I can’t take his (screenshots) I still keep quiet – all of a sudden he comes back and puts a screenshot of the Mpesa he sent me – not showing the one the money was refunded – hehe he accepts money was reversed to his manager Joyce –
Once again, I don’t ask artistes for money to play their music.

I and other leading DJs know what ills the Gospel industry and one of them is back handedness where artist will do anything to get airplay whether the music is bad quality or has no message of hope, salvation, Joy and Love as expected by the standards of the faith we stand for. To avoid such traps where I am independent, I do not take money for artists. Period. If money is sent to me so as to push a song on any of my platforms, I refund it. The screenshots above are evidence of that.

nexxie 222

I recently did a post on this. The guy who purports that I asked to be paid to play his music is clearly on a witch hunt. As y’all can see, he wants to make a name for himself using the wrong channels. Fame, money and status is what he’s looking for. He also wants to join System Unit family (see screenshots). Surely, when will the selfishness and hate stop?
I’m not into causing scenes. One thing I’ll assure you all is that I’m done playing nice.

Former Politician Claims Illuminati And Aliens Are REAL!

Paul Hellyer, who oversaw the Canadian defense forces in the 1960s, has come out and said that the illuminati is a real entity and is controlling the world – making him the highest ranking government official worldwide to do so.

Hellyer told the Lazarus Effect podcast he believes the world’s elite has the technology to reverse the effects of climate change, but is holding back from the public. When asked why, Hellyer said that the Illuminati wanted to help the petroleum industry.

The Illuminati are a group that conspiracy theorists assert controls the world’s affairs and economy, and its members come from the worlds of politics, business and entertainment.

Witchcraft For Who? Jose Chameleone Proves He Is Not ILLUMINATI

According to Hellyer, many members of the Illuminati have stakes in how well the oil industry performs financially.

‘You have a got secret cabal that’s actually running the world and they’ve managed to keep this technology under wraps until they can cash in the trillions of oil assets that they’ve got,’ Hellyer said.

‘And it’s not going to change until hundreds of thousands of people band together and say look “you’ve got to come clean, tell us what is going on, and change your priorities to save the world for further generations instead of blowing it on wars.”

Hellyer is known for making some rather outrageous claims – in the past, he’s said the United States intervened to take over an alien crash site in the Canadian province of Manitoba. These aliens are the source of the anti-climate change technology, claims Hellyer.

Bella Hadid Slays The Best Yet In 2018 At The New York Fashion Week [Photo]

She has carved an incredible career for herself in the fashion industry.

And Bella Hadid, 21, made sure that she turned heads as she left the Jimmy Choo x Off White event in an all-pink striped suit on Sunday.

The appearance came after Bella had already hit the runway for Brandon Maxwell’s Fall/Winter 2018 show and Prabal Gurung’s catwalk, as well as watching Alexander Wang’s show late on Saturday show on a very busy weekend for the top model at NYFW.

Bella’s bright look was offset by a handkerchief that she had tucked into the pocket, and she drew attention when she stepped out into the night with sunglasses on.

The young model slipped on black pointed shoes which had plastic covering over her feet, while a black bag hung loosely on one shoulder.

The beauty had her brunette locks pulled back into a tight bun, and although she was wearing glasses it was clear her make-up was on point as her high cheekbones and plump pout looked incredible.

The NYPD’s intelligence division and the Secret Service are investigating the incident.

Usimpelekee Uslay Queen! Prince William Is Allergic To Selfies, Apparently

Prince William joked today that he is ‘allergic’ to selfies, but was happy to pose for a traditional picture when asked by a Norwegian royal super fan.

William’s admission came as he met hundreds of well-wishers with Kate in a snow covered Oslo park as the second leg of their Nordic tour began in earnest.

The Duchess, who is around six months pregnant and wore a luxury alpaca fur hat and a Catherine Walker coat, seemed to relish the chilly weather and told Christian Wallis, 29, originally from Bedford but now running hotels in the Norwegian capital: ‘It’s cold in a nice way, it’s good to get proper snow.’

What you were influenced by and what has made you the amazing person that you are today. So, I combined that and questions when we first met like, ‘Who’s your idol? And what would you do if you weren’t a talk show host?'”

EXCLUSIVE: “It was certainly an accomplishment” Rihanna’s African dancers open up on performing with her at the Grammys

One of the highlights of this year’s Grammys is when pop star Rihanna rocket the stage. She was flanked by African dancers, with whom she staged an epic performance. The crowd went wild when she did the popular South African dance Gwara Gwara as she sang “Wild Thoughts” alongside Bryson Tiller and DJ Khaled. The 60th Grammy Awards ceremony took place in New York.

Rihanna’s dance moves at the 60th annual Grammy Awards 2018 catches the attention of South Africans for this reason

I was lucky enough to catch up with Stephen Ojo (Nigeria) and Caleb Bonney (Ghana), the two dancers who were on the front with Rihanna at the coveted awards ceremony.

Prior to the awards show, Caleb teased about the incoming historic performance:

And then it all happened at Madison Square:

Stephen took to Instagram to thank Rihanna for giving Afrobeats dance a chance:

“RIRI THANK YOU FOR GIVING AFROBEATS/AFRICAN DANCE A CHANCE AND LETTING US TEACH YOU, GOD BLESS YOU. You, bryson, and Khaled are all some humble people 🤙🏾 God is good!!!!!!,” he said.

I caught up with the two members of A.V.O Boys dance crew and they gave me juice on their unforgettable moment in life:

On how they got the gig:

Well Caleb got a call from one of our friends who happens to be a huge supporter and great help to the A.V.O boys, Tanisha Scott. She asked him to gather a group to make a quick audition video to Rihanna’s “Wild Thoughts”. She made it clear that we had a chance to perform at the Grammys but no one was guaranteed a spot.

On performing with Rihanna, one of the most popular celebs on the planet:

Sharing the stage with some of the world’s most respected artist was certainly a blessing. It was an overwhelming experience and we enjoyed every second that we spent on the stage. We were doing what we love and we also got the chance to represent Africa through the last few moves of the entire routine. Having Rihanna do the GWARA GWARA with us was certainly an accomplishment for us. Overall the experience was great.

On the preparations for the Grammys:

Rehearsal was very intense, but the dancers we were around were all awesome, humble and they welcomed us with open hands which made rehearsal a lot easier to go through. Apart from the intense practice and hours we put into rehearsal, rehearsal was always fun because we were all learning from each other, and also having the chance to connect and grow a bond with other dancers who were from all over the world.

Rihanna Gwara Gwara

What do they have to say to their supporters?

We just want to thank everyone for the love and support that they have shown to us as a group, we never expected this outcome but we really really love and appreciate everyone who showed us love. We mainly thank God for giving us the opportunity to showcase African culture and moves on one of the biggest platforms in the world.

We at Classic 105 congratulate the two for their success!

Strength Of A Woman! Pregnant Kate Middleton Plays Hockey

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got competitive on a ‘bandy hockey’ rink today on their first engagement of a tour to Sweden and Norway.

Wrapped up in thick coats, bobble hats and snow boots, Prince William and Kate Middleton were each handed a stick and ball and invited to take three shots at goal from a red carpet that had been hilariously rolled out onto the ice.

William stepped up first and scored with two of his attempts.

Kate, who was a formidable field hockey player at school, had a better stance but was on target just once.

The couple, who this morning embarked on a four-day official tour of Sweden and Norway, starting in Stockholm, were at an outdoor rink in the capital for an introduction to the popular local sport.

Pregnant Kate kept the cold at bay in temperatures of -1°C, wrapping up in a Burberry shearling coat teamed with skinny jeans and Sorel snow boots, while she and William both donned bobble hats to keep their ears warm.

Ever the diplomatic dresser, the Duchess wore a burgundy jumper by popular Swedish brand Fjällräven.

bur

Before the game Kate and William drank an alcohol free tipple from a flask brought in a Bandy Portfolj – or Bandy Briefcase – a traditional office-style briefcase that traditionally contains a flask of warm wine or coffee laced with alcohol. The drink in the flask is normally called ‘Glögg’ a gluhwein type drink.

Anna Widing, 29, an international Bandy player, talked the couple through what they needed to do before the shoot out.

She says, ‘Kate had played field hockey and I was expecting her to be good — and she was very good. She knew how to hold the stick and she had a very good swing. I was impressed.’
