“I have terminal cancer and I know I will be dying soon.

I wish to confess my sins before God and before all the affected people especially those who were giving birth at UTH during my service.

I have found God, I am now born again. I have nothing to hide.

In the 12 years I worked in the maternity ward at UTH, I swapped close to 5000 babies,” Zambian Observer reports

I know I sinned against God and may he forgive me for that.

I am also asking Zambians to forgive me for the evil things I was doing to innocent children. I have caused some faithful couples to divorce after going for DNA Tests.

Its now that I have realized I was just being used by a demon to do that.

I have caused many mothers to breastfeed children who are not theirs biologically. I don’t want to go to Hell for that.

Am really sorry I have sinned a lot. Please forgive me.

In conclusion she says

If you were born in UTH between the years 1983 to 1995 chances are your parents may not be your biological parents. I had developed a habit of swapping newly born babies just for fun.

So take a good look at your siblings, if for example everyone is light and you are darkie… you are that child and I am really sorry for that .

Do you think that she should be forgiven?

57-year-old cougar reveals s3x with men under 30 keeps her young

A grandmother and self-proclaimed ‘prolific cougar’ who has dated hundreds of toy boys believes bedding men under 30 is the key to keeping young.

Gaynor Evans, 57, from Enfield, North London, has dated more than 200 younger men since she had a fling with a 23-year-old after divorcing her second husband in 2010.

The author, agony aunt and businesswoman never dates exclusively and said she has no intention of her love life slowing down – despite being a grandmother of four.

Gaynor said she doesn’t mind the stigma from other women and claims her family are supportive – even though some of her dates are younger than her children.

The mother-of-four said: ‘I’m an older woman who has stepped outside convention – I’m very unusual.

I’m one of the most openly prolific cougars out there. I’m not boasting about it and I know it’s not for everyone, but I’m non-repentant.

‘I make no apologies for being a prolific cougar because it’s a lifestyle choice and one I’m happy with. Although I’m nearly 60, I feel 30.

My sexual desire has never waned and I’m dating three men non-exclusively at the moment.

Mother who felt torn between her two exes reveals they’re now living as a ‘throuple’

A mother-of-two has told how being in a polyamorous throuple with her exes has solved the ‘tug of war’ she felt on her heart.

Ali Jones, 29, from Cape Town, South Africa, was with Damian Grundy, 30, before the marriage broke down, and she quickly moved on with Matty Ruchton, 26.

But the mother of two felt a constant tug battle over her feelings for the two men, and broke up with Matty too.

After joking about having a threesome, the three shared a night of passion and decided to be together as a throuple, with Ali saying they share a ‘rare, unconditional love’ between them.

Ali Jones, 29, from Cape Town was heartbroken when her relationships with her exes didn't work out, but now they're incredibly happy as a 'throuple'. Matty pictured (left) with Ali (middle) and Damian (right).

Ali was working as a tattoo artist when she fell in love with Damian, who works as a refrigeration technician.

She revealed: ‘We had been acquaintances for a few years during high school as we had the same friend circles, but the magic happened one night while we were each out on the town.

‘We shared our first kiss, Damian slept over that night and never left; it was love at first sight and he told me he loved me after five days.’

Already a mother to a little girl, Morgan, now 10, from a previous relationship, Ali felt that Damian was also a good father-figure for her.

Shortly after they split up, Ali met another man, entrepreneur, Matty Ruchton, 26, who she hit it off with and they fell in love quickly.

She said: ‘The way he made me feel and act was different to what Damian gave me. We also fell in love extremely quickly, he was exactly what I needed in my life.

‘He also took on my kids as his own and loved them instantly. Obviously at first Damian wasn’t happy, and was hurt that I had moved on so quickly.’

She described Matty as ‘a sparkling knight in shining armour’, and encouraged the two men to become friends.


Oooh No! 53 year old Woman livestreams her death on Facebook

A 53 year old woman  live streamed a video of herself taking her own life on Facebook. At least 1 of the people who were watching called for help.

Merilee Joyce Turner, 53, of Cudjoe Key broadcast the troubling footage on Wednesday night, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Turner died after several people viewed her wounding herself in real time, sheriff’s office spokesperson Adam Linhardt said.

At least one person called authorities, but they did not make it to her home in time.

‘Foul play is not suspected,’ Linhardt told the Miami Herald. ‘We’re not looking for anybody. It’s obviously self-inflicted wounds but there could have been other factors involved.’

The video was removed from her profile by Facebook.

From the looks of Turner’s remaining posts on her page, it appeared as though she was the life of the party.

Many images show her laughing and smiling wide, often surrounded by lots of other people.

Turner is listed on the account as having been in a relationship with Kevin Slamon, who is originally from Killashee, Longford, Ireland, since what appears to be at least February 2017.

Someone who viewed the livestream where Turner ended it all called sheriff’s deputies, one of whom watched the video as well.

After receiving he call, authorities responded to the home of Turner, who was known by friends as ‘Mouse,’ at around 10.15pm on Wednesday.

‘EMS arrived moments later’ and pronounced the woman dead, a sheriff’s report said.

Paris Jackson steps out for the first time following suicide attempt

Paris Jackson stepped out with new boyfriend Gabriel Glenn at The Dirt premiere on Monday night.

The 20 year old daughter of Michael Jackson was all smiles at the premiere, which took place at Arclight Hollywood.

The singer, actress and model looked to be in good spirits, just days after reportedly being hospitalized for an attempted suicide.

Jackson was wearing a black top under a studded black leather jacket, with black pants and black boots with red laces.

She also had a number of beaded necklaces dangling from her neck as she stepped out at the premiere.

 Jackson has been taking to social media quite frequently over the past few days, over reports that she attempted suicide.

TMZ reported on Saturday that Jackson was hospitalized after a suicide attempt, but she responded to their report on Twitter, stating, ‘f**k you you f***ing liars.’

The report claimed police and EMS responded to Paris’ L.A. home at 7:30 AM, with Paris reportedly slitting her wrists.

The sources claimed she was taken to the hospital and placed on a 5150 hold, but she was seen returning to her home that afternoon, wearing a jacket that read ‘I’m fine.’

Sources claim that the suicide attempt was due to the release of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

The documentary features Wade Robson and James Safechuck accusing her father Michael Jackson of molesting him when they were children.

Paris has long maintained her father’s innocence, with Paris and the rest of her siblings believing that the documentary was one-sided and unfair, with the family in ‘turmoil’ over the release, according to the TMZ report.

Paris was seen at the premiere with her boyfriend Gabriel Glenn, who she performs with in her band The Soundflowers.

She was seen smiling with her boyfriend on Saturday, hours after her hospitalization, which was reportedly not for a suicide attempt.

‘Paris had an accident this morning that required medical treatment,’ a source told People. ‘She is currently resting at home and doing fine.’

What your monthly cycle say about your health, doctors respond

With so much variation in how many women experience their monthly cycle, it’s difficult for a woman to know what is ‘normal’ and what they should flag with the doctor.

So to help answer some common questions, FEMAIL spoke to Australian general practitioner and owner of Sapphire Family Medical Practice in Bondi Junction, Dr Dasha Fielder.

‘The most important point to make is that women’s menstruation cycles can vary significantly, which is completely normal,’ she said.

‘There is a lot of inaccurate information provided by alternative health practitioners that creates anxiety in women and results in unnecessary tests and treatments that have no evidence behind them.’

Cycle length may vary from person to person

Dr Fielder said that a normal cycle is anywhere between 26 to 35 days with a period that lasts from three to seven days.

Periods normally start with brown discharge and mild cramps and proceed to heavier bleeding for two to three days with stronger cramps.

Then after this the blood becomes lighter before eventually concluding.

‘How women respond to hormonal fluctuations and pain is greatly variable but not in itself abnormal,’ she said.

Oestrogen can result in insomnia and progesterone can make you bloated

Oestrogen is the primary female s3x hormone that is responsible for the development and regulation of the female reproductive system, which Dr Fielder said peaks mid cycle.

Then as the days go on progesterone, another s3x hormone involved in the menstrual cycle, begins to rise and oestrogen begins to drop.

‘In general some women can respond to dropping oestrogen with negative side effects such as mood variations, anger and insomnia,’ she said.

‘Progesterone rising can make some women bloated, constipated and prone to water retention.

‘However it is important to note that this is completely normal and should not be presented to women as something that needs changing and investigating.’

Dr Fielder said oestrogen and progesterone are important hormones for women that controls their reproductive cycle and their main function is to assist with reproduction and pregnancy.

Testosterone has an effect on your libido and health

Testosterone is another hormone that plays a part in women’s menstrual cycle and it is produced in both men and women, although it is less significant in women.

Relatively small quantities of testosterone are released into your bloodstream by the ovaries and adrenal glands.

The hormone is part of what drives desire and thoughts about s3x, and even helps provide the energy for s3x in women.

Women’s testosterone levels gradually go down as they age, and lower amounts of the hormone can lower muscle mass, affect skeletal health, and decrease sensitivity in the va*ina and cli*oris.

‘Although the libido is multifactorial  in women and influenced by many things, testosterone is one of the many things that has been linked to the libido,’ she said.

‘When testosterone levels are too high common conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) may occur or primary adrenal hyperplasia, which is a rare condition that results in hormonal imbalance may appear,’ she said.

‘These are complex conditions and women should seek medical help.’

The unusual signs to look out for 

Dr Fielder said there are a variety of signs women should pay attention to that may indicate they need professional help.

‘If your cycle is longer then 35 days, if you are experiencing excessive hair growth, voice change or your cycle is prolonged and heavy or you have intermenstrual bleeding, it is worthwhile to discuss this with your doctor,’ she said.

‘And looking at your history and an examination it might be appropriate for your doctor to run some basic tests.’

‘However hormones vary from day to day and even from time of the day which means measuring oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone in women is not always.’

Dr Fielder said her main point is that periods vary and hormones change throughout the cycle.

She said women shouldn’t focus too much on their cycle and focus on managing their symptoms with a healthy diet, regular exercise, good sleep, maintaining a healthy BMI and reducing alcohol consumption.


It’s not easy! Pressures that come with being a plus size model

A size 16 model has revealed the hidden body pressures faced by plus-size catwalk stars.

Sonny Turner, 20, of Birmingham, has worked for brands including Asos and Primark and has strutted her stuff on the runway in London and New York.

She explained that while the rise of plus-size means there’s greater diversity in fashion, there are still ‘restraints’ placed on how they should look.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, she said:

‘Even within the plus-size industry there’s still pressure to look a certain way, and a preference to be hourglass.

‘You can be fat but not too fat and you can be plus-size, but you’ve still got to have a flat stomach. It’s annoying because plus-size is supposed to mean being whatever size you are – but within that, there are still restraints.’

Sonny, who is represented by Milk Model Management, admitted there is also still a stigma attached to plus-size models, with some critics wrongly assuming they must be unfit.

‘I’ve still got to be cautious and watch what I eat, and I still have to go to the gym,’ she said. ‘I think the misconception is that we’re all unhealthy but if I was, I wouldn’t be able to do this job.’

 The model was scouted on Instagram by Milk founder Anna Shillinglaw, who worked as both a ‘straight’ and curve model before starting the agency.

Sonny, who owes her striking features to her Swedish and Jamaican heritage, started out as a size 12 but frequently found herself being asked to ‘pad’ in order to make herself bigger for plus-size shoots.

‘This fat is making me money,’ she said in a Channel 5 documentary about the agency that aired last year. ‘I do feel like if I was as slim as I was when I first started then I wouldn’t have as many jobs.’

She continued: ‘What happened to me when I first signed to Milk, I was definitely not plus-size, but I was not skinny enough to be a straight-sized model [either].

‘They were like “we really want to sign you, you have a great face and great hair but you have to wear this fat padding”.

‘Every casting and every job, especially if it was a plus-size brand I used to have to wear hip padding around the hips, a** padding.’

Sonny said on the show that wearing padding was not out of the ordinary and was openly discussed during casting.

She continued: ‘Yes it was an open thing people used to talk about it and say “can you pad up twice?”

‘I was a size 12 and it would make me look a size 16, which is the size I am now. Which is just like crazy.’

Cheating scandal erupts a day after Jlo’s engagement

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s engagement, complete with a $4.5million ring, captured the hearts of celebrities and fans alike this weekend.

But now one former baseball star could be brewing up trouble in paradise.

Jose Canseco raised eyebrows on Sunday after he claimed that Rodriguez cheated on Lopez with his ex-wife Jessica Canesco.

Canseco began tweeting about the alleged affair while ‘watching World of Dance’, an NBC reality show in which Lopez is a judge.

‘Watching Jlo text Alex Rodriguez, little does she know that he is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica,’ Canesco tweeted.

‘Poor girl, she has no idea who he really is.’


Canseco then said he was ‘there a few months back with her when he called her on her phone’, seemingly referring to Rodriguez and Jessica.

‘Alex Rodriguez stop being a piece of s**t stop cheating on Jennifer Lopez,’ he added, before challenging him to a ‘boxing match or an MMA match anytime you want’.

Canseco later said he was willing to take a polygraph test to prove that what he was saying about Rodriguez was ‘100 percent accurate’. has reached out to both Lopez and Rodriguez’s representatives for comment.

Both Canseco and Rodriguez admitted to using steroids during their respective MLB careers. Canseco won the World Series with the Oakland A’s (1989) and the New York Yankees (2000). Rodriguez won the World Series with the Yankees in 2009.

Canseco was arrested and charged with battery for beating Jessica after they got into an argument while returning from their daughter’s birthday party in 1997.

Authorities said Canseco grabbed his then-wife by the hair and ‘hit her a few times’. He pleaded no contest and received one year probation.

Canseco was also accused of aggravated assault against his first wife Esther Haddad after he rammed her BMW with his Porsche. He received community service.

Rodriguez proposed to Lopez just weeks after they celebrated their two year anniversary.

The power couple announced the proposal on Saturday by posting a photo of Lopez’s massive multi-million dollar diamond engagement ring.

LaToya Jackson alleged brother defiled young boys

Michael Jackson’s sister LaToya Jackson alleged he was a paedophile in shocking footage unearthed from an MTV interview in 1993.

LaToya, 62, claimed she had seen hush money cheques paid to youngsters for ‘very, very large sums.’

She made the accusations after the father of 13-year-old Jordy Chandler accused the King of Pop of molesting his son – there was a subsequent settlement.

Speaking to MTV in the unearthed video from 1993, LaToya says: ‘Michael is my brother, I love him a great deal but I cannot, and will not, be a silent collaborator of his crimes against small, innocent children.

‘If I remain silent then it means I fuel the guilt and humiliation these children are feeling and I think it’s very wrong.’

The comments have come to light after HBO’s bombshell documentary aired on television for the first time this week.

There had been persistent rumours throughout Jackson’s life, but no allegations were ever substantiated.

LaToya asked pertinent questions in the footage which will leave some dumbfounded as to why it had not been widely circulated before.

She said: ‘Now you stop and think for one second and you tell me, what 35-year-old man is going to take a little boy and stay with him for 30 days?

‘And take another boy and stay with him for five days in a room and never leave the room? How many of you out there are 35 years old?

‘How many would take little kids and do that? That are nine, 10, 11 years old? I love my brother but it’s wrong. I don’t want to see these kids hurt.’

LaToya continued: ‘I am a victim myself and I know what it feels like. These kids are going to be scarred for the rest of their lives and I don’t want to see any more innocent, small children being affected this way.

‘I love Michael very dearly but I feel even more sorry for these children because they don’t have a life anymore, they don’t.’

In the video she also claimed she was abused by her father.

At the time of the interview she was estranged from her family and had been accused of slandering her brother to make money.

She later retracted the claims she had made, saying her then husband had convinced her to denounce her brother.

The four-hour two-part documentary – which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year – has made sure those allegations continue a decade after he died of an overdose.

The abuse alleged in the film was so appalling there were counsellors on hand for traumatised viewers.

Jackson’s estate has denied wrongdoing and filed a $100 million (£76m) lawsuit against HBO.

The 53-page complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims HBO was violating a ‘non-disparagement’ agreement by airing the documentary.

‘Ten years after his passing, there are still those out to profit from his enormous worldwide success and take advantage of his eccentricities,’ the suit claimed.

The episode called Stark Raving Dad, which appears in season three, will be pulled from syndication and streaming services, Brooks said to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

In the episode Jackson plays Leon Kompowsky, a mental hospital patient who ends up sharing a room with Homer Simpson. In the episode he sings his classic Billie Jean and shows off his iconic moonwalk dance moves.

‘This was a treasured episode. There are a lot of great memories we have wrapped up in that one, and this certainly doesn’t allow them to remain,’ Brooks said on the episode.

The jarring two-part documentary Leaving Neverland aired on HBO last week detailing the accounts of Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck who say the famed pop star sexually abused them and groomed them as children at his Neverland estate.

The allegations re-stirred Jackson’s controversy over the alleged abuse of young boys.

It was so shocking, it led the Simpsons boss Brooks and two other show creators to re-think the episode featuring the King of Pop.

‘The guys I work with– where we all spend our lives arguing over jokes — were of one mind on this. It feels clearly the only choice is to make. The documentary gave evidence of monstrous behavior,’ Brooks said.

‘I’m against book burning of any kind. But this is our book, and we’re allowed to take out a chapter,’ Brooks noted.
