He welcomed twins Alexander and Ella with wife Amal Clooney in June.

Adding: ‘We didn’t want to give them one of those ridiculous Hollywood names that don’t mean anything.’

George told the website that his son and daughter ‘already have enough difficulty bearing the weight of their celebrity.’

The movie star’s interview with Paris Match came days after he and Amal stepped out for premiere of the film Suburbicon at the Venice Film Festival.

George spoke to Entertainment Tonight that he and Amal, 39, ‘just didn’t want to have really dumb names.’

The actor added that he and his attorney wife ‘figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched,’ so they ‘wanted them to at least have a break with the names.’

George and Amal didn’t choose the names Ella and Alexander because of any ‘great inspiration,’ he told the website.

He didn’t name them after anyone or a historical figure like ‘Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald.

George told ET that his kids, who were born on June 6, don’t share the same personality.

Bobby Brown Says He Taught Michael Jackson How To Do The Iconic Moonwalk Dance

Bobby Brown isn’t back-stepping when it comes to the moonwalk.

The 48-year-old singer on Thursday doubled down on his claim that he taught Michael Jackson how to do the iconic dance of the 1980s, when asked by TMZ if he was responsible for originating the King of Pop’s trademark move.

Asked if he taught the late Thriller singer how to do the dance, Brown replied, ‘Of course,’ but made clear that he would be unable to teach anyone else the famed flash of footwork.

‘I cannot, because I forgot,’ the Every Little Step singer told the site as he made his way from Hollywood’s Dream Hotel, where he subsequently demurred when asked about recent reports he withdrew from being a contestant on the upcoming season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

‘Don’t ask me questions,’ said the My Prerogative artist, who initially made the moonwalk revelation in an August 28 chat with The Cipher’s Shawn Setaro.

Brown said that he ‘was the first one’ to do the dance move in his Boston neighborhood of Orchard Park ‘to do the moonwalk.

‘The moonwalk was one of my signature moves,’ he said. ‘Nobody. I had brought it up from down South. It was something that just killed the game once I brought it up the East Coast.’

The New Edition alum then revealed, ‘Actually, I was the one that taught Michael how to do it’ during a time when he and his former bandmates had been invited to Jackson’s home and began to dance in ‘this big room with mirrors.

43F128DB00000578-4867148-image-a-57_1504914055656

‘We was all just dancin’ … we was poppin’, he was watchin’ us pop,’ Brown said. ‘He saw me do the moonwalk. And he was just like, “What is that?” And I did it again. He just watched it. And he just started doin’ it.’

Asked how he reacted after seeing Jackson first do it at a 1983 special called Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever, the Don’t Be Cruel vocalist called Jackson’s footwork ‘greatness at its finest,’ adding, ‘I thought it was great; he made it look better than I did.’

Beyonce ‘In Talks’ To Sing New James Bond Theme Song Scheduled For Release In 2019

Multi-award winning megastar Beyonce is being hotly tipped to perform on the next James Bond theme song after producers demanded a fresh boost to the franchise.

The past two themes (Skyfall and Spectre) have been sung by British singers Sam Smith and Adele to much critical acclaim and now bosses have decided only a hit from Queen B can match the recent record.

The Bond 25 project is set for release in November 2019 and is said to come at an ideal time for the mother-of-three who who recently released the album Lemonade to a rapturous reception.

A Daily Star source close to Beyoncé, 35, revealed: ‘This is the only project she is remotely interested in right now.’

The source added: ‘The two spoke before Bey’s first meeting with film bosses and Adele told her how co-writing and performing a Bond theme gave her an amazing career hike.

‘Not many of the themes have been as successful – but there are tens of millions of Beyoncé fans out there.’

Beyonce – who is married to Jay Z – welcomed twins Sir and Rumi in June and is also mother to five-year-old Blue Ivy.

Female solo singers have had a golden track record when it comes to Bond with Shirley Bassey, alongside Adele, putting their names to classic theme songs.

Shirley, now 80, recorded 1964’s Goldfinger, 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever and 1979’s Moonraker.

The first two widely considered to be among the best songs among the franchise.

Ako Na Umama! Here is Why Your Man Has Mood Swings…He Has Hit MANOPAUSE

Men also undergo their own version of menopause.

Does you man have any of the following symptoms?

  • Feeling grumpy, miserable and lacking confidence
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Lethargy. A loss of excitement about life and career
  • Weight gain, loss of strength and muscle tone, aching joints
  • Memory loss
  • Diminished libido

A blood test and full medical and symptom history will reveal whether a man has reduced hormone levels.

The three sex hormones men need are:

DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone, a hormonal precursor produced by the adrenal glands and made into testosterone.

TESTOSTERONE: The main male hormone, although women require low levels too (essential for muscles, bones and libido).

PROGESTERONE: A predominantly female hormone that men need at low levels; it prevents excess testosterone.

Treatment usually involves testosterone (by cream or gel), DHEA (in capsules) or progesterone. After treatment ‘men sleep better, get back their zest for life and their wives get back the men they fell in love with.’ Dr Gluck warns that treatment may not be suitable for men with a history of prostate cancer.

Here is a naration from a man who suffered from male menopause.

For the most part, I have managed to avoid those embarrassing mid-life crisis cliches that afflict so many men of my age: the need to buy a Harley-Davidson; getting down with the kids at Glastonbury; the inappropriately tight trousers worn without irony.

When I turned 40 I briefly flirted with the idea of treating myself to a vintage Ford Mustang. Thankfully, dignity got the better of me and I continued trundling around in my sensible, mid-range, mid-price middle-age-appropriate hatchback.

Now I’m nearing 50, my mid-life crisis (if indeed that’s what it is) has become less about recapturing lost youth and more about dealing with crippling existential anxiety. And when I’m not fretting about my place in the universe, I’ll be raging at the injustice of it all.

Life continues around me and yet I feel strangely locked out; not so much looking through a glass darkly as staring at a steel wall. My mind and body no longer feel connected. Emotionally I’m all over the place; railing against the world one minute, sobbing uncontrollably the next. My body remains in a constant state of achy fatigue.

Although I suffered from mild depression in my early 30s this felt different, more profound. Why, on the eve of my 50th birthday, had I become so irascible, so impatient, so unpredictable and distant around people I cared for? What was this woozy sense of unreality hanging over me and why did I feel so fuzzy and exhausted all the time?

I have a comfortable, interesting life, friends and a wonderful woman who loves me, so why did I find it so hard to focus on the positive? I slept fitfully and most mornings would awake with a sense of foreboding — unable to lift my head from the pillow, let alone leap at the challenges of the day. And when I finally made it through the front door and out into the waiting world, that sense of disconnection rendered me helpless. What was happening to me?

Of course, many Inspire readers will recognise these symptoms, but it was only during lunch with a close female friend, now in her 50s, that the subject of the menopause — or manopause — came up.

For the past six months, Jayne had been suffering from hot flushes, mood swings, irritability, over-emotional outbursts, insomnia and feelings of exhaustion and despair.

After hiding under the duvet for weeks on end, she finally plucked up the courage to seek help and was about to begin a course of HRT. Apart from the hot flushes, her symptoms sounded remarkably similar to mine.

‘Perhaps you’re going through the andropause,’ she suggested with a wry smile.

‘The what?’

‘The male menopause,’ she said, rolling her eyes.

Jayne proceeded to tell me about her boyfriend who was also suffering from menopausal symptoms.

‘His mood swings were becoming intolerable and he found it hard to concentrate on anything,’ she said. ‘To top it all, he lost interest in me physically, so I made him have a blood test and it turned out his testosterone levels were way down.

‘He’s now on supplements and the transformation has been remarkable.’

Jayne explained that like women’s menopause, the andropause is linked to a drop in hormones. After 30, most men experience a 10 per cent drop in their testosterone levels every decade. Unlike women, they probably have no idea it’s happening.

But if middle-aged men really do experience a similar kind of hormonal imbalance to women, why aren’t we more aware of it? Like me, none of my male friends had even heard of the andropause. Most were familiar with the menopause and some could even list a few of the symptoms, but they had no idea that men might be prone to something similar. The mainstream medical profession appears divided. My GP scoffed when I asked him whether the andropause might explain my erratic behaviour.

Although testosterone levels fall as men age, the NHS argues that the decline is steady — less than 2 per cent a year — and that this change is unlikely to be noticeable.

They suggest that menopausal symptoms in men are more likely a result of lifestyle factors or psychological problems. But I have a pretty good life, I don’t smoke or drink too much and as far as I know I have no major psychological issues. So I was surprised when my GP recommended antidepressants without much in the way of consultation.

I’d been prescribed Prozac and Valium during my earlier brush with depression, but had struggled with the deadening effect of the drugs. Better to feel something than nothing has always been my philosophy.

I wasn’t willing to take that risk again so I decided to get my hormone levels tested by one of the leading authorities on the subject.

Dr Marion Gluck is a world pioneer in ‘bio-identical’ hormones to rebalance the body’s endocrine system. She’s the go-to specialist for menopausal women in the know, but has recently seen a steady trickle of men too, which she finds gratifying.

‘The only time I tend to see men in my surgery is when their wives or girlfriends have dragged them here,’ she says, wrapping a tourniquet round my arm in preparation for a blood test. ‘Men find it much harder to admit when something is wrong.’

Marion believes GPs are too quick to dismiss the manopause. She tells me that hormones regulate virtually every function in the body, so it’s important to recognise their significance to physical and mental wellbeing.

When my blood test results are in they reveal my testosterone and thyroid levels are low. Marion isn’t surprised. The exhaustion I’ve been feeling, along with my inability to concentrate, are classic symptoms of a thyroid deficiency. My irritability and mood swings are a sure sign my testosterone levels are on the wane.

Marion is keen to point out my symptoms may not be exclusively down to hormone deficiency; there are probably a number of factors at play, so it’s important these are taken into consideration when diagnosing signs of depression. This, according to Marion, is where the NHS is failing patients. ‘Instead of blithely prescribing anti-depressants to anyone who complains about feeling low, doctors should take a more holistic approach, by asking why patients feel depressed.

‘The diagnosis should be built around contributing factors including hormone levels, lifestyle choices and mental wellbeing.’

For this reason she tends not to rely too heavily on blood test results. ‘I prefer to treat individual symptoms, not statistics on pieces of paper,’ she says. ‘Besides, there is no such thing as “normal” when it comes to hormone levels. What’s normal for a 48-year-old man may not be normal for a man in his 70s.’

Marion describes her diagnostic approach as like building a jigsaw, fitting each piece of the puzzle together until a bigger picture emerges. ‘Before prescribing any treatment I really need to understand the person I’m helping.’

The good news is that none of my symptoms appears to be unusual for a man of my age and Marion is confident that with some carefully planned hormone treatment, I will soon be feeling my old self again.

The middle years can be particularly tough for men as we take stock of our lives and wonder what might have been. It’s when those anxieties impinge on our ability to function that we should start to be more like women and seek help.

It’s liberating to know my symptoms may be down to a simple chemical imbalance.

Marriage Is Indeed Not A Bed Of Roses! City Folk REVEAL The Pains Of Being Married (Funny Tweets)

For most, getting married means making a life-long commitment to the person you love.

But these people have a rather more tongue-in-cheek idea of what marriage actually means to them – from not having to shave their legs anymore, to being able to sit on the toilet with the door open.

Dozens of husbands and wives have been sharing their hilarious insight on what marriage is really like as the hashtag #BeingMarriedMeans sweeps across Twitter.

Many described having to put up with their other half’s annoying habits for the rest of their lives, with one person quipping: ‘If the toilet seat is left up there will be consequences’.

Another joked that being married means ‘allowing your wife to stick her ice cube feet against you when you’re trying to sleep’.

Black-Married-Couple

In fact, having to share a bed – and a duvet – was common problem mentioned by the Twitter users.

Others had more philosophical views on what marriage means to them, with one writing: ‘Hating someone so much you want to kill them. But love them too much to do it’.

Another had a less hopeful view on marriage, suggesting that the only possible options are parting in ‘death or divorce’ – ‘so don’t do it’.

In a similar vein, one described marriage as being ‘an institution of three rings’: ‘engagement ring’, ‘wedding ring’, and ‘suffering’.

And in one rather unnerving post, a Twitter user suggested being married means always having a ‘willing accomplice/ alibi.’

Here are the tweets that will make you think long and hard if you really want to jump the broom…

Awwwww, She Is All Grown! Remember Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’s Daughter Suri? She Is Cute As A Button (PHOTOS)

It has been a pretty minute since we last saw Suri Cruise.

And it’s no surprise given that Suri Cruise still looked every inch the cherubic youngster as she stepped out with her mother Katie Holmes in New York City on Thursday.

The 11-year-old – who Katie shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise – looked the perfect amalgamation of her famous parents as she enjoyed a leisurely stroll in an adorable outfit.

Having seemingly adopted her mother’s love of fashion, Suri sported a polka dot yellow dress, which boasted a pretty pleated hem.

The mother-daughter duo looked to be indulging in a spot of shopping in the Big Apple, with Katie toting a large shopping bag.

Their outing came just a short while after the Batman Begins star gushed about her little girl during an interview on The Today Show, where she admitted she was looking forward to her daughter’s teenage years.

She enthused: ‘She is 11½, she’s a great girl and she is doing so well,’ the Dawson’s Creek actress said. ‘I’m enjoying this time. I’m not so worried yet about the teenage years.’

Host Matt Lauer then described losing his edge once his daughter became a teenager and wondered if Katie was right around the corner with her nearly teen-aged daughter.

‘I never was cool so I’ve got nothing to lose,’ the Thank You For Smoking actress said.

‘I’m totally ready for this.’

Check out photos of Suri all grown up.

Kylie Jenner’s Surgeon Reveals She Sparked A Huge Rise In The Number Of People Getting Lip Fillers

Love her or hate her, Kylie Jenner is one of the most influential stars when it comes to beauty trends — and according to her surgeon, she’s also ‘singlehandedly’ changed the way young woman approach surgery to enhance their beauty.

The 20-year-old star covers the current digital issue of WWD, in which she talks about her enormous beauty empire (Kylie Cosmetics has done $420 million in retail sales in 18 months).

432D744C00000578-4783282-image-a-27_1502486770727

And her cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Simon Ourian chimes in too, crediting the reality star with inspiring more than just lipstick looks — in fact, he says, Kylie alone has inspired other young women to get work done.

Kylie first shocked fans back in 2014 when she started getting lip injections. At first, she refused to admit it to the public, but has since become more open about discussing it.

432D736400000578-4783282-image-a-32_1502486801008

‘When she first talked about her minimal cosmetic procedures I saw a new trend of younger women who suddenly felt empowered to unapologetically want to look more beautiful,’ Dr. Ourian told WWD.

‘It’s like Kylie singlehandedly gave a whole generation the ticket to a more enhanced version of themselves.’

432D736C00000578-4783282-image-a-34_1502486810474

Dr. Ourian also got a boost from Kylie’s influence. When she started speaking out about her procedures, she mentioned going to a different doctor for her first injections — but that doctor made her lips too big.

She then sand Dr. Ourian’s praises in a New York Times article, saying ”he’s super natural about it.’

Kelly Rowland Gushes Over Beyonce’s Newborn Twins As She Claims All Of Her Friends Are ‘Having Babies’

She and husband Tim Witherspoon are currently the parents of an only child.

But that doesn’t mean Kelly Rowland isn’t paying attention to her friends’ growing families, as she revealed to Us Weekly on Friday.

The 36-year-old Motivation songstress was clearly quite excited about close friend Beyonce’s recent welcoming of twins Rumi and Sir Carter.

‘Everybody has babies or are having babies,’ she told the publication, ‘it’s a really cool time in our lives as friends and growing up together.’

When asked specifically if she felt the need to offer up advice to her longtime friend and former Destiny’s Child member, she dismissed it out of hand.

‘No one needs’ parenting advice, including the Carters,’ she said, adding ‘all my girls are very smart.’

She then explained how all of the parents share knowledge and parenting tips.

‘They gave me great advice and we flip flop. All of us flip flop on advice, so nothing in particular.’

In terms of her own family, Kelly has been enjoying all of two-year-old son Titan’s many milestones.

‘We do everything together! We go to the park. He’s learning to swim. He’s just awesome. I’m having a good time with him.’

Beyonce has been having a great time with her own family, including taking daughter Blue Ivy, aged five, to a Kendrick Lamar concert recently.

A video posted to Queen Bey’s Instagram feed shows the 20-time-Grammy-winner’s eldest daughter bouncing along to the beat.

Usher Denies He Had Sex With A 21-Year-Old Mother Who Says He Exposed Her To Herpes

Usher has denied ever having sex with a woman suing him for allegedly exposing her to the herpes virus, claiming that she isn’t his type.

Quantasia Sharpton is one of three alleged victims – two women and a man – suing Usher for failing to tell them he had herpes before they allegedly had sex.

42FA24C700000578-4770092-image-a-101_1502161141032

But Usher has now told friends that while he may have pulled Sharpton up on stage during a concert, he says he never had sex with the woman.

Usher ‘looks to bring a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels’, one insider told TMZ, while another said he believed it was ‘an esteem booster’ to bring people onstage during concerts.

Sharpton, a 21-year-old mother of three, claims that she had sex with Usher following a concert of his that she went to with friends to celebrate her 19th birthday.

430D3BC200000578-4768068-image-a-3_1502119380724

She says she was selected from the crowd to go backstage before the show and meet Usher – real name Usher Raymond – because of the birthday crown she was wearing.

Later, she says a security guard came up to her and asked for her number because Usher was ‘interested in her’.

After the show, she says she got a call from a blocked number and it was Usher, asking her what hotel she was staying in and the room number.

About an hour later, Sharpton says Usher arrived at her hotel and they had ‘sexual contact’. But after he left, she ‘never heard from him again’.

Sharpton said she was shocked last month to learn that Usher possibly has herpes.

Ellen DeGeneres Reveals She Was The Victim Of Bullying In Hollywood When She Came Out In 1997

She’s been happily married to wife Portia de Rossi since 2008.

But Ellen DeGeneres has opened up on the cruel bullying she faced from some of her Hollywood peers when she first came out as gay back in 1997,

The chat show host, actress and producer, 59, revealed she feel into a ‘severe depression’ as she struggled to cope with the attention surrounding her personal life during a new interview with the September issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.

Ellen explained: ‘The bullying I endured [in Hollywood] after I came out made up for the lack of it during my childhood. I can’t believe I came back from that point.

‘I moved out of LA, went into a severe depression, started seeing a therapist and had to go on antidepressants for the first time in my life.

‘It was scary and lonely. All I’d known for 30 years was work, and all of a sudden I had nothing. Plus, I was mad. It didn’t feel fair – I was the same person everyone had always known.

‘I can’t believe where my life is now. I don’t know what people are saying about me, and I don’t want to know, because I don’t care. My motto is, “I do my best. You can be with me or not”.’

As one of Hollywood’s most powerful women, Ellen learned at a young age that it was easy and important to practice kindness.

She added: ‘I grew up in a pretty religious family, and the one thing I heard every Sunday was “Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you”.

4324891A00000578-4779466-image-m-20_1502389216056

‘To me, still, that’s the golden rule to live by, and it’s not something to work at, either. It’s just the way we should live.

‘If we don’t, it’s chaos… Anger and aggression weaken you, because they take so much energy to hold in place, but kindness is a strength [that] makes you more serene.’

DeGeneres married actress Portia De Rossi, 44, in 2008 after nearly four years of dating.

Fears for troubled singer as she releases 12-minute video where she admits she is suicidal and living out of a motel

Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has posted a concerning video online saying she is suicidal and living out of a $70-a-night Travelodge motel in New Jersey.

O’Connor, 50, posted the 12-minute video on Facebook last week revealing she was all by herself and fighting to stay alive every day.

‘I am now living in a Travelodge motel in the a**e end of New Jersey,’ she said while sitting on the motel room bed.

‘I’m all by myself. And there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist – the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero – and that’s about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment… and that’s kind of pathetic.

Irish singer Sinead O'Connor, 50, posted the 12-minute video on Facebook last week revealing she was all by herself a Travelodge motel in New Jersey

Irish singer Sinead O’Connor, 50, posted the 12-minute video on Facebook last week revealing she was all by herself a Travelodge motel in New Jersey.

‘I want everyone to know what it’s like, that’s why I’m making this video.

‘Mental illness, it’s like drugs, it doesn’t give a s**t who you are, and equally what’s worse, it’s the stigma, it doesn’t give a s**t who you are.

‘Suddenly all the people who are supposed to be loving you and taking care of you are treating you like s**t. It’s like a witch hunt.’

The troubled singer-songwriter said she was ‘fighting like all the millions of people’ battling a mental illness.

‘If it was just for me I’d be gone. Straight away back to my mum… because I’ve walked this earth alone for two years now as punishment for being mentally f**king ill and getting angry that no one would f***ing take care of me,’ she said.

‘I’m a 5’4′ little f***ing woman wandering the world for two years by myself.’

She also added that she had been hospitalized for kidney stones recently.

A woman staying at the motel told Page Six that O’Connor had been staying there for a week.

‘She had a hospital band on her wrist,’ the woman said.

The woman added that O’Connor kept to herself but ‘left her door wide open all week except at night’ and would often go to the Pepsi machine.

The guest, who hasn’t seen O’Connor since Friday, said the first time she saw the Irish singer she told her boyfriend: ‘That looks like an old Sinead O’Connor.

O'Connor (above in 2012), who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder more than a decade ago, has spoken of her mental health problems previously

The footage immediately sparked fear among her fans.

‘I go to bed every night worried about you,’ one person wrote. ‘I wake up and tentatively log onto Facebook because of my worry for you.’

Another wrote: ‘To Sinead’s kids get over and help your mother, she is crying out for you all, forget what has happened and forgive, keep forgiving her until you get over there and give her a hug.’

O’Connor has spoken previously about how she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder more than a decade ago and has struggled with depression and post traumatic stress for years.

She told Oprah Winfrey in 2007 that before her bipolar diagnosis she had struggled with thoughts of suicide and overwhelming fear. She said at the time that medication had helped her find more balance, but ‘it’s a work in progress.’

O’Connor said in later interviews that she was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2011.

The mother of four sparked a police search in May last year when she failed to return from a bike ride in suburban Chicago.

The troubled singer-songwriter (above in 1990) said in the Facebook video last week that she was 'fighting like all the millions of people' battling a mental illness

About two hours after she left on the ride, a rambling message was posted on her official Facebook page that referred to emotional trauma she had been through over the years, prompting fears she had disappeared to take her own life.

She was found by police later that day at an unidentified hotel.

O’Connor, who is a mother to four children from different relationships, took to Facebook in 2015 to say she had taken an overdose at a hotel somewhere in Ireland. Irish police later said she had been found safe.

The next month, she posted on Facebook that she had been detained in a hospital for mental health evaluation.

Comedian Arsenio Hall dropped a $5million lawsuit against O’Connor earlier this year after she apologized and retracted comments she made on Facebook that he had supplied drugs to Prince.

HOUSEMATES FROM HELL: This Are The Most Infuriating Housemates Ever! (PHOTOS)

When you’re sharing a home with other people, the odd row about empty milk cartons, the washing up and replacing the toilet roll is bound to ensue.

But a tiff about the housework is nothing compared to the perils some housemates have to put up with – from terrifying figures lurking in the corners, to having their entire room covered in tinfoil.

People have been sharing housemates’ most cunning pranks in a hilarious Bored Panda thread, including a bedroom rooms covered in Post-it notes to a very cheeky individual who piled their friend’s bed with soft toys when he let slip that he was bringing a girl back.

Another got revenge on his housemate for leaving passive aggressive notes, by spelling out ‘I unclogged the drain’, with hair he’d collected from the plughole.

And another tormented their housemate’s lack of dating luck by presenting them a framed emergency condom.

Here are some photos of housemates pulling pranks on their housemates…

BLOWN AWAY! Gospel Beauty Is Amazed At What This Man Of High Intergrity Did

Where in Kenya can one meet such a sincere heart?

It is rare for one to collect any amount of money and return to the owner.

Beautiful gospel singer Joyce Omondi is gushing about a  Nigerian security man, Ibrahim Obanago working at the United Bank Of Africa, Nigeria came around a sum of ten thousand dollars which had been forgotten by a customer.

She posted on her Facebook page, “This is absolutely incredible!🙆🙆🙆 A Nigerian security guard found $10,000 and returned it to a bank customer! What a man! He was rewarded with so much more for his integrity and honesty! You can never lose for having good character. AMAZING!! #blownaway! 👏👏👏👏 #bethechangeyouwanttosee #letuschangethenarrative #myAfrica.”

The gospel artiste famed for her hit single Conquerer posted a video of how the man was honored and encouraged people to follow the man’s footsteps because one can never loose for having good character.

One does not have to do good so as to get something in return because the security man never knew that he would be rewarded for doing something that is very unique.

He decided to take the money back to the customer, an act that is very uncommon. He was rewarded much more compared to what he returned.

Woman, 44, Who Posed As a Teenage Girl On a Fake Facebook Account To Seduce a 15-Year-Old Boy Caught By The Child’s Mother Getting Intimate With Him

A woman who set up a fake Facebook account to pose as a teenage girl so she could groom a 15-year-old was exposed when the boy’s mother caught them having sex in his bedroom.

Marie Dent, 44, seduced the boy after using a child’s photograph and false name to create the account and pose as a 15-year-old online.

Dent, who lives in Essex, used the account to chat with the 15-year-old boy and conversations soon became intimate.

She spoke to the teenager about love before kissing and cuddling him when they met up.

During their second meeting, Dent engaged in sexual activity with the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

But her perverted activities were exposed when the boy’s horrified mother walked into his bedroom and found them.

Dent faces jail after she admitted sexual activity with a child and possession of indecent images of a child at Chelmsford Crown Court yesterday.

Appearing dressed in a white blouse and black trousers, she spoke only to confirm her name and admit her guilt.

Jane Oldfield, prosecuting, told the court Dent had maintained the lie that she was 15 during three meeting in November and December 2016.

‘She entered into communication with the young man, a 15-year-old boy, and throughout she maintained she was 15.

‘They met up on two occasions and by that time the communications had become intimate.

‘By the time they met they had been talking of love.’

It emerged at an earlier hearing at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court that the boy’s mother had walked in on the pair having sex in his bedroom.

Dent allowed her fake Facebook account to lay dormant for several months before contacting the 15-year-old, along with other users.

The boy said he did not initiate any activity but told police he was a willing participant and was not coerced.

Judge Patricia Lynch QC said: ‘It matters not who initiated the activity. She was the adult, he was the child.’

Sentencing was adjourned until September 26 for a psychological assessment to be carried out.

An NSPCC spokesman called for better education to help young people avoid malicious groomers on social media.

He said: ‘Dent groomed and sexually abused a child and her victim will now need support to recover from the crimes committed against him.

‘Her malicious use of a popular social media platform shows once again the dangers young people can face when they go online.

‘It is vital children are far better educated about these dangers and that parents and carers also have regular conversations with them so they know how to stay safe.’

Teenage Boy Fakes His Own Kidnapping And Demands Ksh1.5 Million Ransom To Test If His Father Loves Him

A teenager from China was so keen to find out whether or not his father loves him he faked his own kidnapping.

The 18-year-old surnamed Zhu, filmed himself being bound, gagged and beaten up by two accomplices before sending the footage to his father, according to media.

The university student is also said to have demanded his father pay a ransom of 100,000 yuan (1,544,881) to stop the ‘kidnappers’ from selling his organs.

The incident took place in the evening of July 13 in Taizhou, eastern China’s Jiangsu Province, reported Huanqiu.com, an affiliation to People’s Daily.

The report, which cited Kan Kan News, said Zhu was from another Chinese city, Yan’an, and was working in Taizhou during the summer holiday.

Zhu’s father said he received a message from Zhu on that day, which claimed the boy had been kidnapped. The message demand the father send 100,000 yuan within an hour, otherwise ‘the consequences would be serious’.

A video was also sent to Zhu’s father, showing Zhu’s eyes being covered, his mouth gagged and his hands tied.

The video also showed the ‘kidnappers’ pouring cold water on the teenager and beating him up in the bush.

Zhu’s father immediately contacted the police before driving from Yan’an to Taizhou.

The police found out Zhu had checked into a hotel in Taizhou six days prior to the supposed abduction and had not checked out.

The hotel room was said to be ‘in a mess’ when the police arrived. While the officers were planning their next step, Zhu surprisingly showed up and appeared well.

The report said that the police soon realised the kidnapping had been planned by the teenager himself.

Police said Zhu had masterminded the kidnapping because he had always felt that his father didn’t care about him, so he wanted to test if he was really loved.

Due to the drama, Zhu’s mother has borrowed money from her relatives to pay the ransom and Zhu’s grandmother became hospitalised because she had been too shocked.

Police said Zhu had realised his mistake and promised to apologise to his family.

Zhu and his two accomplices have been detained by the police on suspicion of blackmailing and extortion.

Oh No! Couple Who Went Missing 12 YEARS AGO Are Found Dead In Their Car At The Bottom Of a River

A young couple who disappeared nearly 12 years ago have been found dead in the river Volga in central Russia.

Ilya Zhirnov, 25, and his girlfriend Kira Cherkasova, 22, went missing in December 2005 without a trace.

More than a decade later, their remains were found inside a car at the bottom of Volga in the city of Cheboksary in central Russia’s Chuvash Republic.

Car documents – which had survived more than a decade underwater – enabled police to identify the couple.

They were last seen in December 2005 when Mr Zhirnov borrowed a car from his father to pick up Miss Cherkasova from work.

Police investigated the missing couple, but were eventually forced to close the case as a result of lack of evidence, and the families have been left in the dark as to the young lovers’ fate until today.

The couple’s car was found in the river by a local diving enthusiast, whose name has not been released when he was exploring the waters near a local beach.

He reported his discovery to police who winched the car out of the river the following day.

Officers believe the lovers’ death was an accident and that icy roads near the river may have been to blame for their tragic end.

The police investigation is continuing and the findings will be made public in due course.

Shocking Moment Parents Pull Their Crying Baby From a Changing Room LOCKER After They Return From The Pool

A Chinese couple has caused an outcry after allegedly leaving their child inside a locker at a public bathhouse.

The shocking video has emerged showing the mother pulling the crying toddler out of the wooden cabinet.

It’s suggested that the couple had left their toddler in the locker because they did not want to look after the child while they bathed, according to Chinese website Kan Kan News.

A worker at the bathhouse, who helped the couple open the door of their locker, appeared to be shocked when she saw there was a child inside.

It remains unclear if the child is a boy or a girl, or how long the child had been left in the locker.

However, according to the report, though the child was crying when it was freed from the locker, it did not show any symptoms of suffocation.

After being uploaded onto the Chinese social media platforms, the video has sparked an outrage.

On Weibo, the Chinese equivalent to Twitter, many people were shocked by the couple’s behaviour, calling them ‘careless’, ‘selfish’ and ‘irresponsible’.

One user commented: ‘The child looked powerless when it was pulled out. How scared the child must have been after being left in such a dark and small space.’

Another user said: ‘How careless could the parents be? The child is not an object. If it’s not convenient, then don’t go to take the bath.’

Some people worried about the child might suffer from claustrophobia in the future, while others claimed the parents should be deprived of their guardianship of the child if the accusations turn out to be true.
