Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker’s engagement ‘kept HIDDEN from Scott Disick as family feared he’d profess his love’

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:55

KOURTNEY Kardashian and Travis Barker’s engagement was kept “HIDDEN” from ex Scott Disick as family feared he’d “profess his love,” The Sun can reveal. 

The reality star’s baby daddy has had a “tough time” accepting that his longtime partner is now officially off the market with the Blink-182 drummer and those close to him say he took the news “really hard.”

After word spread like wildfire that Kourtney, 42, said “yes” to Travis, 45, popping the question, fans began to wonder how her ex, Scott, 38, was handling the situation. 

“Scott is in a really, really rough place right now,” an insider exclusively told The Sun. 

The source continued: “He found out with the rest of the world, he wasn’t given a heads up like the rest of the family because they didn’t want him to do something to spoil it for Kourtney.”

“They could have seen him doing something dumb like professing his love for her or something. It was a personal moment for Kourtney so he didn’t need to be involved.”

According to the source, the reason the “Lord” has had a difficult time with letting his ex go is he “always believed” they would end up together.

“All he needed to do was give up drinking and she would’ve married him but he didn’t so she moved on. 

“He feels he had his chance and he blew it so he’s been taking it hard. 

The family is fearful he will go off the deep end but at the same time, they are also more focused on Kourtney’s happiness than they are Scott’s potential downfall,” they added.

The insider revealed some of the preparations for the big proposal, explaining: “Travis asked for Kris’ blessing and from there, got the rest of the family involved so they could all be there for the proposal. 

“Not surprising that Kris wept as soon as Travis asked, she said she was a mess but excited to officially welcome him into the family. 

“Kourt is her firstborn but has never walked down the aisle so after everything she went through with Scott, the family couldn’t be happier for Kourtney and Travis. 

“It’s no secret they love Travis so much and they are so good for each other.” 

Scott and Kourtney were together off-and-on for over 10 years but officially called it quits back in 2015. 

Though they split six years ago, fans always speculated if they would get back together – with the pair hinting at rekindling their romance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians last season. 

MILLION DOLLAR PROPOSAL

However, Kourtney has maintained she would not get back with Scott unless he gave up drinking and has since moved on with Travis. 

Together, Kourtney and Scott share sons Mason, 11, and Reign, 6, along with nine-year-old daughter, Penelope. 

The musician proposed to his girlfriend at a beachside hotel in Montecito, CA on Sunday complete with thousands of dollars worth of roses.

Travis had flowers arranged in the shape of a giant heart set up on the beach, with candles flickering all around them.

Hand in hand, Kourt and Travis walked along the water until they found their way inside the floral arrangement, where he got down on one knee.

After popping the question and presenting Kourtney with the engagement ring reportedly worth around $1MILLION, she happily said yes and jumped into Travis‘ arms for a big kiss.

The happy couple celebrated afterwards with a dinner joined by their kids, Kris Jenner, Kim and Khloe Kardashian and more loved ones.

Arsenal verdict: ‘New Patrick Vieira’ Thomas Partey has shocker as woeful Gunners scrape draw against Invincibles legend

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:45

THE man labelled ‘The new Vieira’ had a shocker in front of the old one.

Thomas Partey is lucky he does not play for Crystal Palace.

AFPArsenal midfielder Thomas Partey was guilty of a poor performance against Crystal Palace[/caption]

You could not imagine their manager and Arsenal legend Vieira being too chuffed with his display against the Eagles.

Partey capped a miserable performance by being at fault for Palace’s equaliser five minutes after the break.

The Ghanaian was criminally caught in possession in his own half by Jordan Ayew who then fed Christian Benteke to fire home to make it 1-1.

It was not the only mistake in another lacklustre display by Partey who has epitomised the Gunners’ inconsistency since his £45million switch from Atletico Madrid a year ago.

He was dubbed ‘The new Vieira‘, but he is not a patch on the former ‘Invincibles’ skipper.

As Vieira showed in his playing heyday, the midfield general role is arguably the most important in the team. It is the control centre of any side.

But Partey simply does not command enough matches. He certainly was not in command against the Eagles as their midfield left him chasing shadows.

He is a one in three man at best – and at a club like Arsenal that is simply not good enough.

How they need an anchorman like Vieira in their ranks to pull the strings and thwart opponents.

Partey and his team-mates lost their way badly after taking an eighth-minute lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Palace’s second goal by Odsonne Edouard was also the result of a Gunners midfielder losing the ball, this time sub Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Make no mistake, Arsenal got lucky with Alexandre Lacazette’s last-gasp leveller.

After a sticky start, Vieira is starting to impress as a manager in the same way he did as a player.

AFPParety was at fault for the Eagles’ equaliser after being robbed of the ball by Jordan Ayew[/caption]

If things continue like this for both teams, it will not be long before he is being touted for the Gunners hot-seat.

Palace’s travelling army taunted their hosts by singing: “Vieira’s right, your fans are s***e!”

Their midfield weren’t too clever, either.

Kevin De Bruyne cannot remember Champions League final after broken eye socket… now he’s desperate to get back

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:41

KEVIN DE BRUYNE has found it easy to forget about Manchester City’s heartbreaking Champions League final defeat in May.

That is because he was on the wrong end of a blow from Antonio Rudiger’s shoulder — and does not remember much before or after it.

APKevin De Bruyne cannot remember much of last season’s Champions League final after this gruesome eye injury[/caption] GettyThe Belgian was involved in a brutal collision with Chelsea ace Antonio Rudiger[/caption]

He missed the last half-hour of the 1-0 defeat to Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea and was taken to hospital in Porto for treatment on a fractured eye socket.

All he can recall from then on is returning to the team hotel the following morning still wearing his City kit from the night before.

Then came a rallying call from club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak who told him to be proud of the season rather than dwell on the final defeat.

Looking back on one of the most disappointing nights of his career, De Bruyne said: “There’s not a lot of memories. It’s a bit dark maybe.

“I remember some chances in the first half and the goal but after the collision I don’t remember a lot. I don’t remember how I got into the hospital on the night itself.

“I remember going back in the morning to the team hotel at 10am still with my City kit on, that’s what I remember.

“It’s sport — it happens. It’s not the best thing that ever happened but you go on with it.

“These type of games you can lose, the other teams are very good. And that particular night we lost the game so we move on.”

Despite losing the final, Khaldoon wanted to be positive about the season which had seen them win a league and Carabao Cup double.

KDB, 30, added: “I think the chairman spoke to some of the team in the morning, I’ve no idea when.

“He just said he was happy with what I contributed to the team and in the year.

‘WE WILL BE BACK’

“He said some positive words like, ‘We will be back, we’ll be fighting again to try to win the trophy’.

“There was not a lot of people in a good mood, I felt strange at the time with everything that happened.

“It was nice to hear that from the chairman because it was a very big blow for everybody. It was a positive but short conversation.”

The desire to win the Champions League still burns brightly for Belgian star De Bruyne and for all of City’s domestic success it remains the one trophy missing from the cabinet.

Their hopes of doing it this year suffered a setback when they were beaten 2-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in a memorable game last month.

De Bruyne added: “I think people will always set the standard higher and higher because of what we have done in England for the last five or six years.

“People expect us to win the Champions League — and that is what we want to do. We are always competing for it but we have not managed to win it but we are trying.

“Hopefully in my period here we will get one. Does it define your legacy? For people outside maybe.

“It depends, you look at the situation and I’m happy with what we’ve done as a club for the last six years.”

Paedo Gary Glitter moved to new cell dubbed ‘paedokabin’ by cons

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:35

PAEDO pop star Gary Glitter has suffered new jail humiliation.

He was moved from a normal cell to digs dubbed “paedo-kabins” by cons.

The switch was to help maintain social distancing.

But Glitter, 77, was said to be horrified at being banged up in the temporary cabin in the grounds at HMP The Verne, near Portland, Dorset.

His new surroundings have a bed, sink, shower and toilet.

But a source said of last month’s move: “It’s about as grim as it gets. The cabins creak every time you move about, they smell and they’re either too cold or too hot.

“It’s like sleeping in one of those toilets they put up at music festivals. He won’t be enjoying it one bit.”

Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, was jailed for 16 years in 2015 for sex offences.

Britain’s top football cop warns return of standing and alcohol could WRECK the English game after Euro 2020 shame

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:30

BRITAIN’S top football cop says the return of standing and booze is a toxic mix that could wreck English football.

Chief Constable Mark Roberts was already concerned by the upsurge of hooliganism that saw the Euro 2020 final at Wembley turned into a war zone.

APFootball’s top cop fears ‘safe standing’ and booze allowed in seats is a recipe for disaster[/caption] AlamyChief Constable Mark Roberts is concerned at the rise of hooliganism within the game – even before the reintroduction of ‘safe standing’ and alcohol in the stands[/caption]

The Government approved trials of ‘safe standing‘ from the start of 2022.

It is also expected former Sports Minister Tracey Crouch will recommend the ban on fans drinking booze at their seats is lifted for lower-division clubs.

Roberts, head of football policing for England and Wales, said: “We know it’s easier for people to mask themselves and chant racial abuse, throw pyrotechnics or behave in other anti-social ways if they are standing.

“It will change the atmosphere in a ground as well, as we know it will likely be males between 16 and 55 who want to stand more than women, families or older fans.

“That change will not be for the better.

“It’s going to make things a lot more challenging – to put the top hat on it and allow people to drink in the stands would be ludicrous.”

Tanked-up fans, many also fuelled by cocaine, were blamed for the shameful scenes at Wembley in July.

Roberts added: “Excessive drinking will lead to bad and violent behaviour.

“I go to games as a fan and safety has to be taken seriously. 

“If things get worse, it will also have an effect commercially.

“If violence becomes routine again, then it will be damaging for the sport.”

Quick-thinking nurse and doctors saved Newcastle fan’s life after cardiac arrest

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:30

THESE are the heroes who saved the life of a Newcastle United fan who suffered a cardiac arrest during a Premiership match.

The man, in his 70s, suddenly collapsed in his seat, but a quick-thinking nurse and four doctors rushed to help.

They gave him CPR and then cut off his clothes to attach defibrillator pads to shock him back to life.

Nurse Ruth McDonald, 62, was one of the first on scene at the clash with Tottenham at St James’ Park.

Referee Andre Marriner stopped play in the first half for 20 minutes after Spurs ace Sergio Reguilon alerted him to the drama.

Ruth of Hebburn, South Tyneside, said: “I could see something was happening and people were frantically trying to get help.

“Some of the fans around him had already laid the man flat. I took over the CPR and we delivered the first shock.”

Dr Tom Prichard, 34, a United season ticket holder, also ran over with his pal Dr Matt Anderson.

“There was an elderly gentleman lying on the seats in cardiac arrest.

“An intensive care doctor arrived and a cardiologist, and we were able to bring him back again.

“When I was walking back to my seat and 10,000 fans were chanting ‘Hero’ at me — that is one of the best moments of my life.”

Nurse Ruth added: “It was a real team effort.”

Tottenham went on to win 2-3.

The stricken fan — named only as George by club bosses — was yesterday recovering in hospital.

His son Paul Smith said: “He seems OK. I wish to thank every single person who helped him. It could have been a totally different outcome without them.”

West Ham to send top doctor to Jamaica with Michail Antonio to check on star striker’s hamstrings

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:30

WEST HAM are taking no chances with Michail Antonio’s hamstrings by sending their top doctor with him for Jamaica duty.

Antonio, 31, made his debut for the county in September after switching his football allegiance from England.

West Ham will send top doc Richard Collinge to Jamaica to accompany Michail Antonio and ensure his hamstrings can hold upRex

He played 70 minutes of a 3-0 defeat to Panama in Kingston and watching over him was the luckiest physio in football.

West Ham’s head of medical services Richard Collinge was despatched to the Caribbean Island on an all-expenses paid trip with the sole purpose of making sure Antonio’s precious legs survived the extra workload.

Antonio has a history of hamstring problems and Irons boss David Moyes is taking no chances with his main centre forward.

A club source said: “Richard was there, on hand, to make sure everything went well and to be on hand in case there were any issues.”

It is a sign of just how important Antonio is to West Ham’s season that his club were prepared to go to extraordinary lengths of flying a personal medic halfway round the world to keep an eye on his legs.

Antonio has stayed fit so far this season and scored six goals for West Ham – missing only one match through suspension.

He has been called up to several England squads but after failing to make a consistent breakthrough, opted to play for Jamaica after the country’s FA approached him in February this year.

He skipped the most recent international matches in the US, Canada and Honduras due to Covid restrictions but Jamaica face the Americans at home on November 16.

Antonio has stated himself that he is making a more concerted effort to take more care of his hamstrings and general health.

That includes being more precise about his dietary habits and taking more vitamin supplements to help stay fit.

West Ham face Genk on Thursday as they look to maintain a 100 per cent start to their Europa League campaign.

And midfielder Tomas Soucek has declared himself fit to play despite getting an accidental boot in the face from Everton striker Salomon Rondon which required stitches to the Czech midfielder’s lip and eye.

Man Utd could follow Chelsea’s lead… sack club legend Solskjaer, and win the Champions League

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:30

SACK a legendary Champions League-winner; win the Champions League.

The template is there for Manchester United, laid down by Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea last season.

ReutersManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under huge pressure at Old Trafford[/caption] Guardian News & Media / Free to use by all titles in perpetuity under NMC agreementRed Devils may have to sack their club legend, just as European champions Chelsea did with Frank Lampard earlier this year[/caption]

And although getting rid of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wouldn’t guarantee the Red Devils becoming European champions next May, it sure as hell would give the club a better chance.

Frank Lampard’s dismissal in January was so controversial with large swathes of Chelsea’s support that Abramovich actually felt the need to make an almost-unprecedented personal statement about it.

But four months later, Thomas Tuchel’s Blues had conquered Europe after adding structure and a clear identity to an excellent squad.

United now have world-class players in around nine of their 11 starting positions, and plenty of squad depth too.

Yet they are under-performing on a spectacular scale because they do not have an elite manager and, as a result, do not look like a proper team.

Abramovich recognised a similar situation at Stamford Bridge last season, reacted swiftly and reaped his rewards.

FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER DEALS

The chances of United doing the same any time soon is remote, according to club sources.

Solskjaer, United’s one-time baby-faced assassin, is now their bullet-proof manager. And nobody can quite understand why.

Since the jubilation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s homecoming, a flattering 4-1 win over Newcastle in September, Solskjaer’s side have won twice in seven matches.

And both of those victories were fortuitous — secured by an injury-time penalty save from David De Gea at West Ham and an injury-time winner from Ronaldo at home against Villarreal.

Saturday’s trip to Leicester seemed to sum up a club which makes all the wrong decisions — from making the 100-mile journey to the Midlands by plane to a shambolic performance in a 4-2 defeat.

While the rest of football goes carbon-zero, Solskjaer’s United are tactics-zero.

They lack intelligence. They lack a plan with and without the ball.

Paul Pogba’s heated post-match comments, including the claims that United ‘need to change something’ and ‘find the right mentality and tactics’, were taken in some quarters as exasperation with Solskjaer.

PAThe Red Devils lost 4-2 away at Leicester on Saturday with the Foxes outplaying United[/caption]

If that is so, who could blame him?

We are probably about to re-enter the ‘blame Pogba’ stage of the endless United news cycle.

Pogba was poor at the King Power but the Frenchman  has seven  Premier League assists this season — three more than any other top-flight player.

And the midfielder won another trophy with France in the Nations League last week, with footage again emerging of him giving an impassioned team-talk in the dressing room, just as it did during their triumphant 2018 World Cup campaign.

Pogba is not a troublemaker. Sure, his agent may be a bit of a tit, but he  is a footballer with high standards who doesn’t suffer mediocrity gladly.

And Ronaldo isn’t the problem. He is still a world-class goalscorer. It’s just that he was never likely to be the solution, either.

United needed a top-class holding midfielder, but instead they chose the crowd-pleasing, social- media-blockbuster signing.

And it was another nostalgic move, too. Just as Solskjaer’s appointment was. United’s supporters used to accuse Liverpool fans of living in the past. Now the situation is reversed.

Much more of this and the official club colours will no longer be red, white and black but sepia with a rose tint.

United now face the fixture list from hell — before the end of next month, they meet all five of their fellow European Super League breakaway conspirators, as well as a Champions League double-header against group leaders Atalanta.

The over-achieving, low-budget Italians who terrify European football’s entitled old guard are capable of winning at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, despite having an entire team which cost less than £77million Jadon Sancho.

By the end of November, Solskjaer’s side could be out of the Champions League and effectively out of a Premier League title race which will be contested by three elite managers in Tuchel, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

Solskjaer is the odd man out among managers of England’s top four clubs and it is no coincidence that unlike Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, they aren’t as good as they should be.

Nobody at Chelsea delighted in Lampard’s sacking — he had been in charge for only 18 months, his first season had been encouraging, he helped re-connect the club to its root and his affection for the Blues was undoubted.

And if United ever sack Solskjaer, few people will rejoice in that, either. He is a good man, who smiles a lot and talks fondly of the Old Trafford club’s past.

But nostalgia is an affliction and sentiment is bunk in elite football.

As Abramovich knows full well.

Jonjo Shelvey and Jamaal Lascelles among four first-teamers for the chop as new Newcastle owners plot transfer overhaul

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:30

A REPLACEMENT for Steve Bruce may not be decided on yet – but Newcastle’s owners will already be working out who can last the pace of change.

Beyond the first ten minutes, Newcastle were abysmal against Tottenham on Sunday – with the 3-2 scoreline even flattering the Magpies.

EPANewcastle’s new owners are plotting a transfer overhaul in January – and multiple establishes stars could be axed[/caption]

Nobody came out with much credit – but while Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are here to stay – others should be getting worried.

The January transfer window cannot come round soon enough to breathe some new life into this sinking Toon squad.

SunSport picks four players who could struggle most to convince their bosses they should stick around.

JONJO SHELVEY RexJonjo Shelvey was already on borrowed time before the 3-2 loss against Spurs and is almost certain to lose his place[/caption]

If this was a chance to impress the new regime, the petulant midfielder failed spectacularly.

Shelvey was already on borrowed time before Sunday – even if he was undroppable when fit in the early days under Steve Bruce.

He has offered nothing of note for too long.

Too slow and nowhere near dynamic enough in the engine room. His red card against Spurs said it all.

FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER DEALS

JAMAAL LASCELLES GettyJamaal Lascelles has drastically regressed at Newcastle under Steve Bruce[/caption]

A solid performer under Rafa Benitez, the Newcastle skipper has regressed massively under Bruce.

Never blessed with pace, Lascelles’ dodgy positioning was there for all to see when he was stood way off Tanguy Ndombele for Tottenham’s opener.

Newcastle have conceded three more Prem goals (19) than anyone else so fellow defenders Ciaran Clark, Federico Fernandez and Fabian Schar will all be in the spotlight.

Lascelles is a respected leader of the group and, at 27, has time ahead of him.

But would any other Premier League side really fancy him?

If the answer is maybe only Norwich and Watford, then a fresh start is needed.

MATT RITCHIE GettyThe writing appears to be on the wall for Matt Ritchie who could be sold in January[/caption]

Jamal Lewis, a £15million summer signing, must be furious having to watch Ritchie get in at left-back ahead of him.

The feisty Scot gives everything and is often the only one showing any leadership.

But the writing must now be on the wall.

No longer under consideration as a winger, Ritchie, 32, dropped to wing-back before Bruce’s recent switch to a four-man defence.

While he is still capable of whipping in a decent ball, he has been found wanting going the other way all season – and Toon must quickly stop the rot in defence.

A loyal servant who endeared himself to the Toon Army. He will be fondly remembered, especially for calling Bruce a ‘coward’ in a training-ground row in March.

JOELINTON AFPJoelinton must finally be sold and will go down as one of Newcastle’s worst-ever signings[/caption]

Six goals in 77 games at £6.6m apiece, this man will surely go down as one of Newcastle’s worst-ever signings – the new Stephane Guivarch.

The £40m flop was never the answer before the takeover, with the only problem now finding a willing buyer.

If there is a player in there, then the Brazilian has only shown it fleetingly at best – and never in front of goal.

Bruce has rarely played him on the left, where he excelled at Hoffenheim, but that is no excuse.

If Newcastle drop to the Championship then he may do a job, otherwise, he’s got to go.

I ended up in hospital after my man’s enthusiastic thrusting flipped my privates ‘inside out’

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:29

A WOMAN was horrified when her saucy romp with her partner left her in agony when her vagina “flipped inside out.”

Tsion had been looking forward to a weekend of passion with her partner Brashaad after spending seven months apart.

TLCTsion ended up in hospital after having sex with her boyfriend[/caption] TLCBrashaad says it looked as though Tsion’s vagina was “inside out”[/caption] TLCShe had suffered some lacerations from their sex act[/caption]

Speaking on TLC’s Sex Sent Me to the ER, she explains: “When our relationship blossomed he was in Houston and I was in Los Angeles.

“I was really excited that he was coming, I was counting down the weeks.”

However, when Tsion arrived at Brashaad’s hotel, she was horrified to discover that his aunt was staying in the same room.

Desperate for some alone time, the pair sought out an alternative spot for their love making.

She says: “We eventually found a closet, I guess like a janitor’s closet. We looked around and we didn’t see anybody so… you know.”

But once they had done the deed, Tsion began experiencing some severe discomfort.

“I was walking OK right after,” she says, “I still did feel weird but I was all happy so I didn’t really want to address it.”

But it didn’t go unnoticed by Brashaad, who added: “She was walking stiff like something’s down there.”

Concerned, Tsion asked him to take a look, and what he saw left Brashaad horrified.

“Her vagina was like, flipped inside out,” he says.

The pair rushed to hospital where doctors explained that they could see some small lacerations and tearing, diagnosing Tsion with severe vaginal ecchymosis.

The disgruntled lovers were told to stay off sex for two weeks and that Tsion would be back to full working order as long as she applied ice to the area.

What does the Nine of Swords tarot card mean?

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:27

THE Nine of Swords suggests that you are dealing with dark thoughts and troubling feelings that keep you awake at night.

Those who get the card may have worries about what its deeper meaning suggests.

GettyThe Nine of Swords can have a dark meaning[/caption] What is the Nine of Swords meaning?

The Nine of Swords depicts a woman sitting up in bed with her head in her hands.

She appears to have been jolted awake from a horrible nightmare that has left her scared, disturbed, and anxious.

Nine swords hang on the dark wall behind her, representing the negative thoughts that plague her.

She is wrapped in a quilt adorned with roses and astrological symbols carved into the bed base.

Most read in Fabulous OCTOMUM I’ve got 8 kids & live off benefits - people call me trash but I don't care SPELLS TROUBLE I paid off a £800k mortgage on a £25k salary - but trolls call me 'stupid' YOUNG MUM People say I look too young to be a mum, some even think I’m 12 without makeup BOY BYE I left my boyfriend for a girl, so he decided to get my best friend PREGNANT OH SHEET! How often do you change your sheets? Mum says it's more often than you think LIFE OF BLING 'Gypsy Queen' is enjoying a Hollywood lifestyle just like that of Paris Fury

This card can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy if you allow the fear and worry to become irrational.

By obsessing over what might go wrong, you are more likely to manifest your worst-case scenario because you are inadvertently acting in ways that support your negative thoughts.

When you find no signs of infidelity in your partner, you might worry that he will cheat on you. 

The Nine of Swords reminds you that most of the worry and fear you are feeling is in your head rather than a true reflection of what is going on around you. Overthinking or obsessing over the worst-case scenarios can make things worse for you.

What is the reverse Nine of Swords meaning?

You are experiencing deep turmoil as a result of your mindset when the Nine of Swords is reversed.

Negative thinking is keeping you in a downward spiral of despair and anxiety that contradicts reality; you are making things seem worse than they really are.

Although you may try to keep your worries private, if you find yourself struggling to keep your head above water, it may now be time to confide in others and seek their support and help.

Other people can offer a new perspective or simply be a place to vent, which will ease some of the stress and tension.

AlamyA different depiction of the Nine of Swords[/caption] What are the Nine of Swords keywords?

The Nine of Swords keywords are; anxiety, worry, fear, depression and nightmares.

The reversed Nine of Swords keywords are; inner turmoil, deep-seated fears, secrets and releasing worry.

Kim Kardashian’s sexy 2018 Met Gala photo ‘helped solve case of missing $4M gold Egyptian coffin’

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:26

KIM Kardashian’s regular selfie-taking landed her at the center of a criminal investigation involving a stolen Egyptian coffin, forged documents, and a wide-spread looting-and-trafficking ring.

The reality star isn’t a suspect in the crime, but rather a key player in helping to solve the case.

GettyA 2018 selfie taken by Kim Kardashian helped solve a major international art trafficking case[/caption] Creative CommonsThe photo led investigators to the looters who dug up and illegally sold an Egyptian coffin[/caption]

In 2018, while attending the Met Gala in New York City, Kim snapped a photo of herself standing alongside Nedjemankh’s coffin sporting a gold outfit and heavy makeup.

During a recent episode of the podcast Art Bust: Scandalous Stories of the Art World, Ben Lewis — a British journalist and the show’s host — revealed the photo got the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star thousands of likes and served as key evidence in tracking down the coffin.

According to the podcast, the ancient piece, which dates back to the 1st century BC, was stolen and sold to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for $4 million.

The sellers used fake documentation in the sale.

FIT FOR A KING

The piece is not just any Egyptian coffin.

Nedjemankh was a high-ranking priest in Egypt and his resting place was elaborate as a result.

Most read in The Sun wedknapp Jamie Redknapp marries pregnant girlfriend Frida Andersson at secret ceremony PARKING MAD Family whose FIVE cars won't fit on their drive complain at cost of parking JUMP FOR JOYCE Fury snubs AJ, Usyk and Whyte and thinks Joyce is 'the best one out there' DUBAI HELL Brit spent 19 months in Dubai jail on drugs rap after cops misinterpreted text 'won't be overcome' Strictly's Adam Peaty lashes out after Katya Jones near-kiss scandal 'COME FIND ME' Leigh-Anne's fiance issues stark warning as she tearfully hits back at Jesy

The piece was six-feet-long and covered in gold — a feature Egyptians associated with the gods.

Nedjemankh’s name was inscribed on the piece.

On the outside, the coffin features scenes and texts meant to protect and guide the high priest on his way toward “eternal life.”

The piece also features thin sheets of silver foil on the inside lid, which also features the following inscription: “Oh gold! Oh gold! Oh flesh of the god! Oh flesh of the God! Oh fine gold! Oh fine gold!”

REWIND

Ben Lewis said on his show that the coffin was dug up in 2011 during the Egyptian revolution.

It found its way into the American museum’s collection where Kim and other Met Gala attendees were able to see it up close and personal.

Shortly after Kim snapped a photo with the coffin, Manhattan assistant district attorney Matthew Bogdanos received an email about the selfie from an informant in the Middle East.

The informant reportedly received the photo from a member of the gang of looters responsible for stealing the coffin who was upset about a lack of pay for digging up the piece.

Kim’s photo went viral, which is how the looter in question wound up seeing it.

Bogdanos had been working the case since 2013, gathering texts, emails, and other information related to the theft, and receiving Kim’s photo from the informant was a pivotal moment in his search.

“There’s no honor among thieves,” Bogdanos told The Times in an interview.

The photo alone wasn’t enough to act on, so Bogdanos asked the informant’s connection to send any digital images he had of the coffin.

The looter sent several photos from the moment it was excavated, and the law enforcement officer was able to match them to the real thing.

HOME AGAIN

The coffin was a huge score for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

It was the star of an exhibition in July 2018 — just a few months ofter Kim posed with the piece.

Nearly half a million people flocked to the museum to see it.

After investigators learned the truth about the piece, however, it was returned to Egypt and put on display at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

Nedjemankh was not inside the coffin, however.

Looters dumped the mummified remains of the Egyptian high priest in the River Nile.

They made one mistake, though: the looters left a finger bone inside the coffin.

It was still attached when the item appeared on display at the Met.

MORE TO THE STORY

Bogdanos received information about other artifacts that were dug up and, he believed, sold, but he couldn’t match them to any other new acquisitions.

He was limited in what he could act on by jurisdiction as well.

The detective could only act on items in the New York area, meaning he could only nab looters for the coffin.

Bogdanos was able to dig up a lot of information about the artifact.

He found evidence showing that Dib wired money to local criminals and, in exchange, took “the antiquities to Germany.”

A LONG HISTORY

The coffin made its rounds across the globe before winding up in New York.

In 2013, it was given to Hassan Fazeli, an antiquities dealer in Sharjah.

He exchanged emails about the item, according to Bogdanos, referring to it as “the yellow.”

Fazeli also completed an export form incorrectly, labelling the piece as a Greco-Roman artifact in an attempt to hide its origins and the fact that it was illegally harvested and moved.

The coffin then made its way to a German dealer called Roben Dib, who managed the Dionysos Gallery in Hamburg.

The Times noted that it’s unclear whether Serop Simonian, the gallery’s owner, knew about the items origins.

Dib is responsible, according to Bogdanos, for restoring the artifact and faking an Egyptian export license that said it was legally exported back in 1971.

From there, the coffin was dispatched to Christophe Kunicki, a French antiquities scholar and dealer, and his partner Richard Semper.

It is, again, unclear if they knew of the item’s illegal origins.

The pair offered the coffin to the Met, which agreed to pay $4 million for it.

Despite the criminality, Bogdanos noted that curators at the museum should have been more careful and meticulous when looking into the coffin’s background.

Kunicki and Semper were arrested in June 2020 and charged with fraud, money laundering and forgery.

Their case has yet to go to trial, but the pair maintain they are innocent.

Dib was arrested. inAugust 2020 in Germany “on suspicion of art trafficking.”

ALL APOLOGIES

Met CEO Daniel Weiss apologized to the people of Egypt in February 2019 while announcing that the item would be returned.

He also said sorry to Antiquities Minister Khaled El-Enany.

Weiss said: “After we learned that the Museum was a victim of fraud and unqittingly participated in the illegal trade of antiquities, we worked with the DA’s office for its return to Egypt.”

The museum also said it would “consider all available remedies to recoup the purchase price of the coffin” and promised to “review and revise its acquisitions process.”

Why do social media giants do so little to stop trolls abusing, libelling or threatening to kill MPs?

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:20
He built this city

THE City of Southend. What a fine ring that new title has. What a poignant legacy for the wonderful MP it has lost.

If it stands for 1,000 years Southend will always owe its status to Sir David Amess, robbed of his life before his long ­campaign could finally bear fruit.

Southend will always owe its status to Sir David Amess robbed of his life before his long ­campaign could finally bear fruit

Yesterday’s Commons tributes to this remarkable Tory, so popular on all sides, were intensely moving.

It said everything that he was remembered as fondly by Labour MPs as Conservatives.

But they were united too by their ­common suffering as prime targets both for extremism and abuse.

Amid the humour of Mark Francois’ brilliant speech about his old friend, he voiced MPs’ rage over the social media giants which spread these two separate evils.

It is both staggering and shameful that, as we reveal today, the likes of Telegram and LinkedIn still host rants by Anjem ­Choudary, the vile “preacher” said to have inspired at least 18 terrorists and allegedly Sir David’s killer.

Even despite strict surveillance after his jail term, Choudary “remains a dangerous and influential figure”, a report concludes.

So why is there no blanket social media ban on this creature, his wicked sermons and his self-justifying TV interviews . . . still on YouTube?

And why do Twitter and other social media giants do so little to stop trolls abusing, libelling or threatening to kill MPs?

Because it would threaten their multi-billion-dollar business model.

So our MPs endure daily stress and fear online.

As for poor Sir David, ­Islamist poison spread via social media may have cost him his life.

The tech giants hide behind the benefits they bring to our connected world.

Will they ever take responsibility for the grotesque harm?

Dennis Hutchings dead aged 80 – Veteran on trial over fatal shooting during Troubles dies

The Sun - Mon, 18/10/2021 - 23:15

A TROUBLES veteran who was being pursued through the courts over a fatal shooting has died, it was reported.

Dennis Hutchings, 80, caught Covid midway through the trial where he had denied attempting to murder and cause grievous bodily harm to John Pat Cunningham.

Mr Cunningham, who was 27, was shot in the back as he ran from an Army patrol in a field near Benburb, Northern Ireland, in 1974.

Mr Hutchings’ trial was adjourned on Friday after he took ill and the court heard on Monday that he had tested positive for Covid.

He was rushed to hospital in an ambulance after struggling to breathe, but he died in Belfast’s Mater hospital later that night, the BBC reported.

He was also suffering from terminal kidney failure and heart disease before he passed away.

The court had only been able to sit three days a week so Mr Hutching – who proudly wore his service medals – could still receive kidney dialysis.

The vet’s defence barrister said the distress of standing trial had “killed him”, The Telegraph reported.

James Lewis QC informed Belfast Crown Court that he had taken ill and was unable to attend as proceedings in the non-jury trial were due to continue.

“I regret to say he’s been taken unwell and is presently in hospital,” he told Mr Justice O’Hara.

The trial had been ongoing for two weeks.

Mr Hutching reportedly complained he was struggling to breathe three days before it began, but remained determined to clear his name.

A former Blues and Royals soldier, Paul Young, who now works alongside the Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans group branded the trial an “absolute disgrace”.

“This frail, old, sick man hounded to his grave without being able to clear his name,” he said.”He was absolutely determined to be in court.

“The justice system was insatiable and wanted his scalp but he died a lonely old man on his own in a Covid ward.”

The former member of the Life Guards regiment from Cawsand in Cornwall denied a count of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent.

He was cleared of the shooting twice and was told he would not be prosecuted, but the case was reopened by the Legacy Investigation Branch of the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

Mr Hutching was arrested in 2015 and taken to Northern Ireland for questioning, despite prosecutors previously saying they had no direct evidence he had fired the fatal shot.

Mr Cunningham was said to have the mental age of a child and an intense fear of soldiers.

The landmark case again shed light on plans to cease criminal and civil prosecution of veterans who served during the Troubles.
