    Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy is suing an ex-lover after she claimed the pair had violent sex that left her bleeding and with a broken rib Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy is suing an ex-lover after she claimed the pair had violent sex that left her bleeding and with a broken rib.   His former partner, who is using the pseudonym Kayla, told Business Insider her sexual encounters with Portnoy were more aggressive than she anticipated. She claims Portnoy, 44, would choke her to the point where she couldn't breathe, left red marks on her body from forceful spankings and gripped her rib cage so tightly it felt as if her body 'was compressing in on itself.'  She alleged one sexual encounter was so rough that she suffered rug burns and bled on his carpet. 'I always think back to it,' she told the news outlet. 'Like, "Yes, it was technically consensual sex, but that was not the sex I consented to."'  Kayla also alleged the internet personality would film their sex sessions without her knowledge, an accusation two other women have...
    For almost 30 years the argument has raged ceaselessly back and forth around some of the smartest dinner tables in the land: Who really broke their vows first? Was it her husband's adulterous behaviour that drove the lonely and vulnerable Princess Diana to seek solace in the arms of another man?  Or was Prince Charles, confronted with evidence of his wife's cheating, emboldened into resuming his long-standing love affair with Camilla Parker Bowles? Diana herself couldn't have been clearer in her notorious Panorama interview when she said of her love rival: 'Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.' Her bulimia and self-harming, she said, were consequences of the prince's infidelity. And in recent times, millions of viewers of the Netflix series The Crown have been presented with this version of events as definitive: that Charles was the first to be unfaithful. But yesterday an unexpected voice entered the fray — one the public have never heard from before — to offer an entirely different narrative.  For almost 30 years the argument has...
    Ozzie Albies had what appeared to be an easy out and potential double play but he dropped the ball and everyone was ruled safe. Did the Braves get screwed? Game 2 was not going well for the Atlanta Braves in almost every capacity. The Astros jumped on them early and they couldn’t get much of anything going thereafter. Looking to try and keep the bleeding at bay in the bottom of the sixth, there was a groundball to Dansby Swanson that appeared like it could result in a double play if they made the turn quickly with Ozzie Albies covering second base. Swanson made a nice play but, after the throw hit Albies in the glove, it appeared as if he mishandled the transfer. But instead, the umpires ruled that he never had possession of the catch (shouts to the NFL) and all runners were safe.

    He was neither tall nor handsome but Kim Philby's charm and exquisite manners meant women adored him, never suspecting his capacity for deception or where his true loyalty lay. As the first extract in our serialisation of a brilliant new book about the traitor reveals, it wasn't just his country this Cold War spy cheated on . . .  Love and deception were the hallmarks of Kim Philby, Britain's most notorious (and most successful) Cold War traitor. He loved communism, the flawed cause to which he dedicated his life, and for decades as a British intelligence officer deceived his MI6 masters, living a double life as he passed secrets by the barrel-load to Moscow, where his true loyalties lay. Similarly, in his private life, he loved and was loved by numerous women, only to betray them one by one with his astonishing facility for deceit. At first glance he was an unlikely Lothario. Not a big man, just 5ft 9in tall, pale-skinned and lean, he stuttered and seemed hesitant, reserved even. But he instinctively oozed charm, his voice deep and...
    R. Kelly's executive assistant, who is accused of standing guard on one of Kelly's alleged trapped victims, said she has done nothing wrong and would do nothing differently if she could.  Diana Copeland, Kelly's assistant of 16 years, told Good Morning America that despite Kelly's entourage of 'girlfriends' and strict house rules limiting their movement, she never suspected the music star of illegal activities and said she would not have been able to stop him even if she did.  Copeland added that she had never seen anyone trapped in the house nor ever recruited any woman or girl for the R&B singer.  'He was R. Kelly, a mega superstar. He needed no help, absolutely no help to recruit women or to get women,' Copeland said.  Diana Copeland appeared on Good Morning America on Friday to claim that she did not help R. Kelly recruit women and that there was nothing she could have done to stop him Copeland, Kelly's former aide, testified that one of his girlfriends made her change into a robe during a 2019 meeting at...
    Lewis Hamilton used a tactic that the audience in the stands did not like. Hungaroring Circuit. Many of them were fans of Max verstappen, and after the accident between Lewis and the Dutchman in Silverstone, that the Briton stopped the young driver in the pit lane and on the preparation lap in the final moments of qualifying for the Hungarian GP, did nothing more than add fuel to the fire to the clash between the two rivals for the title. For this reason, part of the fans did not hesitate to boo the 7-time champion when he had to speak on the loudspeaker when he got out of his car. Given this, Lewis’s response was similar to what a soccer star like Cristiano Ronaldo might have given: “Boos motivate me”. “My last lap was incredible. I think it was incredible teamwork from everyone this weekend, also from Valtteri (Bottas), trying to improve the car, constantly evolving. The guys at the factory have not left no stone unturned, so it has been amazing to see everyone coming together and...
    CHICAGO (CBS) —  A heartbroken father and husband is speaking out about the hit-and-run crash that took his wife and baby and left is 12-year-old in the hospital. Sebastian Taylor spoke to CBS 2’s Jermont Terry about the struggles he’s faced just a few weeks after the horrible wreck. READ MORE: Two Shot, One Fatally, While Sitting In Their Car On 16th Street “I’ve never in my life felt so helpless as I did that day,” said an emotional Taylor, who tries his best to hold it together, but keeps reliving the crash. “You wake up and you can’t do nothing.” His wife, Selina, and their sons–David, 12, and Sebastian Jr, three months–were in all inside the family’s black Monte Carlo  when a maroon car t-boned them at Pershing and State in the Bronzeville neighborhood. Chicago Police said two men in a stolen car caused the crash last month. “If you had been in that car and felt that impact,” said Taylor. “It’s like how the heck did I wake up.” When Taylor re-gained conscious, he remembers strangers outside the...
    President Donald Trump did honor one tradition on Wednesday and write a note to incoming President Joe Biden. The note was left on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, outgoing White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere confirmed to DailyMail.com.  Its contents are unknown. Past presidents have revealed what their predecessors wrote to them but it's unclear if and when Biden will do so.  President Trump did leave a note for incoming President Joe Biden on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office President Trump is skipping Joe Biden's inauguration - Biden and Jill Biden at church Wednesday morning at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle The outgoing president has eschewed the traditional trappings that come with a peaceful transfer of power.  Trump did not host Biden at the White House for coffee after the election and did not greet him at residence's front door ahead of the inauguration ceremony. Additionally, Trump did not mention his successor by name in any of his farewell address. He never formally conceded the election and merely acknowledged a 'new administration'...
    Never mind all those supermodel lovers, DAVID BAILEY found unlikely admirers in Britain’s most vicious gangsters. In the final extract from his rip-roaring memoirs, he reveals a VERY awkward encounter... and fears they took ruthless revenge for him... When I was about 13, my dad got slashed by a knife — he ended up with 68 stitches and a terrible scar down his face. No one would tell me who’d done it: it was a very closely kept family secret — a dangerous piece of information. But years later, my aunt Peggy told me the truth. Dad used to put on dances in East End halls. At one of these, a gang started throwing around beer and causing havoc — so my dad and a friend of his, a copper, threw them out. Later, as my dad was clearing the place up on his own, the gang jumped down from the balcony where they’d been hiding and smashed a pint glass in his face. Ronald and Reginald Kray, then aged 19, got two months inside for that. The gangster twins...
    Witnessing these last few months in America has really got me thinking about my stance on gun ownership. With civilians essentially given the OK to take their cars and run over demonstrators, a vigilante killing peaceful protesters, and the president telling a white supremacist group to “stand by” (for what, exactly?), I thought—if the racists and MAGA-fanatics are packing heat, why aren’t the rest of us? Before very recently, I’d never been to a gun range or even held a real gun, because for the longest time, I was afraid of them and what they empower people to do: kill. But my fear of the lawless state of affairs in the U.S. is stronger, so I set my anxiety aside and decided to take steps to learn more about guns by taking a concealed weapons permit class. Honestly, I didn’t expect to leave the class with much more than an understanding of how and when to carry a concealed weapon so you don’t get arrested.
    To the liberal media, special counsel Robert Mueller was the sharp, seasoned, no-nonsense prosecutor who would get to the bottom of “collusion.” But when Mueller testified before Congress on July 24, 2019, many were stunned to see a man struggling to answer basic questions. Had his cognitive abilities declined during the probe? The 76-year-old Mueller, members of President Trump’s defense team recalled, appeared to be a figurehead investigator, a man who seldom spoke or was even seen. On those rare occasions Trump’s lawyers had a chance to talk to the special counsel, Mueller’s aides appeared to be covering for his lapses in memory. So who was really in charge of the Mueller probe? There were questions about Mueller’s mental condition even before he was appointed special counsel in May 2017. Chris Swecker spent 24 years in the FBI. He left the agency in 2006 with the highest respect for his old boss, with whom he had extensive daily contact for more than two years. “Mueller was super sharp,” Swecker remembered. In fall 2016, working in North Carolina, Swecker invited Mueller...
    For three days, extracts from Barbara Amiel’s new autobiography Friends And Enemies have rampaged across the pages of this newspaper. Jaws dropped and eyeballs popped as Lady Black unpacked her life; pegging out her dirty laundry with a boiling honesty one could only admire, especially given the ferocity of her critics over the years. Indeed, when her fourth husband Conrad Black was jailed on charges of fraud and obstruction of justice in 2007, you could have floated many a boat on the universal gloat. ‘The fall of Conrad Black,’ said the Wall Street Journal, ‘is being received in Britain with almost as much glee as the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo.’ So alongside her startling confessions of sexual buccaneering and lavish spending, she also sets about her foes with gusto, picking them off like a perfumed sniper. Lawyers should be strangled at birth. Anyone who ‘persecuted’ her and her husband should be injected with Ebola virus so she can watch them die. Journalists who criticised were ‘jealous’ of her wealth or just plain ‘smelly’. Barbara Amiel attends the 2nd...
    DEAR HARRIETTE: I looked in the mirror the other day and had to gasp. This period of quarantine has been no friend to me. I have sat in my house for months, and I look like it. I don’t even know how I put on so much weight, but it is not good. Harriette Cole  I feel like I have turned into one of my aunties who I pledged as a child I would never become. I always judged them for getting so big, and here I am looking just like them. I am horrified. But I am worried that I am too old to shed the weight. What can I do to reverse these months of lethargy? Overweight DEAR OVERWEIGHT: It would be great to start with a complete physical at the doctor. Find out how much you weigh and the status of your body. Learn if there are any health conditions for you to attend to, and ask your doctor about recommended exercises that are safe for your body now. Ask for a referral to a nutritionist as...
