    When it emerged this week that the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust was being ordered to close its gender identity service (GIDS), it was a particularly personal victory for one young woman.  Indeed, as Keira Bell admits today, it felt as if David had finally slayed Goliath. Two years ago, Keira, now 25, stood on the steps of the High Court after winning her case against GIDS to stop children with gender dysphoria being prescribed puberty-halting drugs.  Keira’s battle was based on her own horrifying experience. Aged 16 and, by her own admission, ‘very mentally ill’, Keira had been given the drugs by doctors at the controversial clinic to pause her own development before realising – six years later and after undergoing a double mastectomy – that it was a monumental mistake.  Keira Bell has spoken about her experience of being prescribed drugs at the age of 16 to halt her development after she was referred to the Tavistock clinic's gender identity service In bringing her High Court challenge with another claimant, Mrs A – the mother of an...
    It's a story that has it all. With its unexplained drowning death, adultery, rock and roll, drugs, a will signed days before his death, a woman who may or may not exist and even witchcraft, it's tailor made for a Netflix special. And after nearly four years, the death of heavy metal rocker Oli Herbert remains a mystery that is still no closer to being explained. But now, after years of online chatter that she was somehow involved, Herbert's widow has finally decided to speak out despite her lawyer’s objections and amid the backdrop of an ongoing criminal investigation. 'Everybody’s telling me to shut up, but all shutting up has done is let this stuff solidify as truth, and it’s not,' the 52-year-old cried, standing beside the pond where her husband was found on October 16, 2018. Did he fall or was he pushed. The mysterious death of All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert (seen here on stage in 2015) has confounded investigators  Self-described pagan Beth Herbert, 52, cried as she showed DailyMail.com the pond where her husband was...
    A routine traffic stop last week netted multiple drug arrests, police said. Charlene Bohannon Lockley, 36, of Richmond and Toyre Jones, 34, of Chesterfield were driving through South Stafford on Wednesday night, May 18, when deputies pulled them over, the Stafford County Sheriff's Office said on Monday. The agency did not say why they were pulled over.  But that was just the beginning of their problems. Lockley was driving with a revoked license, the Sheriff's Office said. She also had drugs on her and hidden in the car as well. Deputies did not say, however, what kind of drugs they had or how much.  Officials charged them with possession of a controlled substance, deputies said. Lockley also picked up a charge of driving with a revoked license.   Both were taken to the Rappahannock Regional Jail.

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A toxicologist testified at the federal trial of three former officers charged with violating George Floyd’s civil rights that it wasn’t drug use, heart disease nor an agitated state known as “excited delirium” that caused Floyd’s death after officers pinned him to the pavement in May 2020. In testimony Wednesday, Dr. Vik Bebarta, an emergency physician and toxicologist and professor at the University of Colorado in suburban Denver, bolstered the prosecution’s contention that Floyd died because of how Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee down on the Black man’s neck for 9 1/2 minutes as he pleaded “I can’t breathe.” He also backed up other experts who have faulted officers for failing to roll Floyd on his side, as they had been trained, so that he could have breathed freely. Former Officers J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are accused of depriving Floyd, 46, of his civil rights by failing to give him medical aid while he was handcuffed, facedown outside a convenience store where he allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit...
    A toxicologist who testified at the ongoing federal trial for three former Minneapolis police officers accused of violating George Floyd’s civil rights said Wednesday that neither drug use, nor heart disease, nor "excited delirium" caused Floyd’s May 2020 death. Dr. Vik Bebarta, an emergency physician and toxicologist and professor at the University of Colorado in suburban Denver, bolstered the prosecution’s contention that Floyd died because of how Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee down on the Black man's neck for more than nine minutes as he pleaded "I can't breathe." He also agreed with other experts who have faulted the officers for failing to roll Floyd on his side, as they had been trained, so that he could have breathed freely. The three officers – J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao – are accused of depriving Floyd, 46, of his rights when they failed to give him medical aid while he was handcuffed, facedown outside a convenience store where he allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill.

    Disgraced former Liberty University leader Jerry Falwell Jr. claims his wife's affair with her much younger pool boy ex-lover motivated him to get back in shape by changing his fitness regiment and taking testosterone supplements.   Jerry, 57, claims he hired a personal trainer and began lifting weights in an effort to win his wife, Becki, back from her lover, Giancarlo Granda, who was 21 at the time the affair started in 2012. 'I was thinking maybe I was the reason she was lonely because I wasn’t taking care of myself,' Jerry told Vanity Fair in a tell-all interview published Monday.  The fallen televangelist was met with negative side effects from the hormone treatments, which he has attributed to many of the seditious things he did before his resignation from his role as university president. 'The testosterone made me more combative,' he said.  Jerry's time as president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, came to an end in 2020 after Granda's revelations about his years-long affair with Becki, 54, emerged.   When Jerry first discussed the affair publicly, he shared that he lost 80...
    SIX years ago, driving down the A3 into London, I was overtaken by a bright pink Range Rover doing almost 80mph in a 50. It was Katie Price.

    I’ll say this for Amazon’s soft reboot of I Know What You Did Last Summer: it wastes no time letting viewers know what kind of show they’re in for. Perched atop a cliff with a pensive but disaffected look on her face, lead actress Madison Iseman speaks in perfect, self-serious monotone: “I’m sure you’re sitting there right now thinking you know who you are, who your friends are,” she says. “I thought I knew. I was wrong.” Screenwriter Kevin Williamson set the bar for a generation of meta-horror imitators to come with his Scream screenplay, but his nautical 1997 follow-up cast its net in a more conventional pond. A loose adaptation of Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel, the predictable teen slasher generally left critics cold, but it understood what its audience wanted and delivered without overthinking. With its creatively-staged kills and impeccable cast of young, tri-nonymous idols—Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr.—I Know What You Did Last Summer sank its hook deep into the ’90s mall rat demographic. This new teen drama, on the other hand, is...

Sleuths have trawled through the 23-year-old's Pinterest page and found what they claim are pictures of LSD tabs decorated with characters from the cartoon Adventure Time. 1Brain Laundrie and Gabby Petito in an Instagram snapCredit: Social Media - Refer to source They also claim Laundrie's posts give insight into his mental state with a folder named "Bleak" containing morbid imagery. Social media users have questioned the couple's drug use in a Reddit subthread where a forensic psychologist answered questions about Gabby's case. When asked whether drug use could have played a role in Gabby's death, a forensic psychologist verified by the site claimed that it would "depend on how much and how frequently he was using drugs." Laundrie has only been named as a person of interest in Gabby's death and is not yet a suspect. Yet a federal warrant for his arrest was issued on September...
    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Medical Board is investigating reports that inmates at a county jail were prescribed the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin to combat COVID-19 even though it hasn’t been approved to treat the coronavirus. Board Director Amy Embry on Thursday declined to elaborate on the panel’s investigation, which she said began in the last two days. Embry said the investigation came in response to multiple complaints related to news reports about the use of ivermectin at the Washington County jail. Washington County’s sheriff confirmed Tuesday night that jail inmates had been prescribed ivermectin, but did not say how many. It wasn’t clear if all the inmates who were prescribed the medication had tested positive for COVID-19. “There is an open investigation and we can’t comment on it right now,” Embry told The Associated Press. Dr. Rob Karas, the jail’s physician, has said no inmates were forced to take the drug. Karas did not immediately respond to a message Thursday. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved ivermectin for use by people and animals for some parasitic...

Fernando Flores, a former cop who helped provide security for the 39-year-old fallen superstar in 2010, told Britain’s The Sun in a new interview that a woman would arrive at Spears’ home every Friday with the medication while he was on the job. “I’d explain [to Spears] what everything was — three anti-psychotic medications and birth-control pills,’’ Flores said. “She’d go from sane to talking about parallel universes.” Spears was put under a conservatorship, aka legal guardianship, in 2008 after a mental breakdown — and is now locked in a court battle to gain her freedom from it.

    One of the prison guards who had sex with child killer Susan Smith behind bars said she turned to drugs because she could no longer get male attention.  Smith made headlines in the 1990s after killing both of her sons by letting her car roll into a lake while they were strapped into their car seats.  She went on TV afterwards, claiming the boys had been kidnapped by a black man who ambushed her and stole her car.  It later emerged she'd killed them because she was dating a man who didn't want kids. Smith was imprisoned for life without parole in 1995.   In 2001, prison guard Alfred Rowe pleaded guilty to having sex with Smith while she was incarcerated at Camille Graham Correctional Center in Columbia, South Carolina.  In an interview with Lifetime's Cellmate Secrets that airs this Friday, he tells how she started using drugs afterwards, because she could 'no longer get male attention' and that she used that as a drug before.  Monster mom: Susan Smith when she was first arrested in 1994, right, and in...

    Two women who attended Florida parties with Rep. Matt Gaetz have described to CNN an environment in which people did drugs and had sex and money changed hands afterward. But get this—the description of these parties is supposed to make Gaetz look better than recent reporting on an investigation into whether he participated in sex trafficking of a minor: “One of the women who spoke to CNN said she did so in part because the picture of Gaetz as potentially connected to sex trafficking that has emerged in recent days does not align with what she saw.” No, seriously: Matt Gaetz was at parties with cocaine and ecstasy and sex for money, and that’s supposed to be an improvement on the previous reporting, apparently because neither woman who spoke to CNN saw any obviously underage girls at those specific parties. The parties the women described to CNN sometimes functioned as after-parties to political events, happening in a gated community or in hotel suites. Women were asked to put away their cell phones—can’t have pictures getting out—and drugs including cocaine and ecstasy circulated. Gaetz...
    As the state begins to wind down its case against the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd last May, legal experts are considering whether Derek Chauvin’s defense lawyer will call him to the stand. The decision will ultimately rest with Chauvin. Joe Friedberg, a veteran defense attorney, told the Star Tribune that much of the case focuses on Chauvin’s state of mind during the deadly incident. He said the "best person to tell us about that would be Chauvin, so you might really be forced to put him on in this case." The paper pointed out that Eric Nelson, Chauvin’s attorney, has not indicated whether or not his client will testify. Nelson, 46, handles cases ranging from drunken driving arrests to homicides, and is one of a dozen attorneys who take turns working with a police union legal defense fund to represent officers charged with crimes. He has gone hard and consistently at his chief message: that Floyd’s consumption of illegal drugs is to blame for his death, rather than something Chauvin did. An autopsy found fentanyl and methamphetamine in Floyd’s...

Part of his strategy for defending Chauvin against murder and manslaughter charges has been to deflect responsibility for Floyd’s death last May 25 away from Chauvin — a white officer who knelt on the Black man’s neck for 9 1/2 minutes — and onto Floyd himself for using illegal drugs. An autopsy found fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system. Nelson first played a short clip with the disputed quote, which came from another officer’s body camera video, during the testimony of Jody Stiger, a Los Angeles Police Department sergeant who served as a prosecution use-of-force expert. The video shows a chaotic and noisy...

    In 2017, the year I started my doctoral thesis, when one was looking for information about ETA’s harsh campaign against the heroin drug trafficking, most of the entries did not speak of the victims of the attacks, but of an alleged plan of the Spanish State to intoxicate the Basque youth and thus destroy the bases of the Basque National Liberation Movement (MLNV). A conspiracy theory very widespread and consolidated that, without any type of historical or academic rigor, has achieved a legion of followers inside and outside the Basque Country. In fact, the lack of a social history of the heroin crisis has consolidated a distorted vision of the 80s of the last century, which is very far from the reality of data and statistics. An example, in 1985the first large-scale investigation by the Ministry of Health estimated that the number of heroin addicts in Spain ranged from 80,000 to 125,000. Regarding habitual users, in its 1987 Report, the Delegation of the National Drug Plan calculated that approximately 230,000 could be hooked. For those dates, we are talking about...

    OWN TV host Dr. Laura Berman is issuing a warning to parents of adolescents about the alarming and growing rate of opioid-related deaths in America, just days after she discovered her teenage son dead of an apparent overdose. Berman spoke to Fox News on Tuesday from her home in Santa Monica, Calif., where on Sunday, she found her son Samuel "Sammy" Berman Chapman dead nearly an hour after her husband, Samuel Chapman, delivered him lunch to his bedroom. Paramedics were unable to revive the teen and information found at the scene shows Sammy may have been in communication with a drug dealer on the Snapchat app. He's believed to have suffered an apparent overdose after taking fentanyl-laced Xanax or Percocet.

With the help of the Narcotics Division of the Santa Monica Police Department, Berman and her husband, Samuel Chapman, are trying...

    A former Alameda County Sheriff’s deputy who was fired in 2016 committed serious policy violations that weren’t publicly revealed until recently, according to records obtained late last year through a records request by the California Reporting Project. Among the newly publicized misconduct charges that got Dep. Travis Brannon fired were allegations that in 2015, Brannon — on duty and in full uniform — attempted to arrest his then-wife during a domestic dispute after he poked her in the chest and she slapped him across the face. Later in the incident, Brannon allegedly attempted to pull over his wife as she drove to a family member’s home, but didn’t report to dispatch that he’d activated his emergency lights. “During the argument, you poked your wife in the chest with your finger and she, in turn, slapped you across your face,” in the parking lot of a Castro Valley hospital, the report says. “You advised your wife that you were going to take her to jail, and you pulled her hair with one hand while attempting to handcuff her with your other...

But first, the collaborator of Save me he expressed something just as shocking.

During those 20 years, I admit that I did not stop using but it was with my friends, when I was at a party and while she was away, “he said about Lucia’s mother, Diego, Laura and...
    Courtney Love has called her 2004 album, “America’s Sweetheart,” “one of my life’s great shames” — along with dating Steve Coogan or using crack. The Hole rocker wrote on Instagram of her critically maligned solo record, “Maybe one day I won’t hate that record. It has some good songs… But like Steve Coogan, or crack, it’s one of my life’s great shames. Just the period, sloppiness, men, money, drugs, nightmare.” But she added of the record, “although Chateau Miraval (where we made it) doesn’t suck.” Love has previously recalled of recording at the property, “I just wanted to be in a château for six months and do drugs.” Brad Pitt and Angelina Joile bought the storied French chateau years later, and married there in 2014. The property has since reportedly been a bone of contention in their never-ending divorce. Meantime, Love and UK star Coogan, reportedly dated briefly around 2005. She later told Love Magazine of the relationship: “All it was was a couple of shags at the Sunset Marquis [hotel],” and that she wasn’t familiar with Coogan’s most...

    President Donald Trump has been spotted with band-aids on the back of his hand, suggesting he is receiving intravenous fluids despite claiming to be 'medication free' after his battle with coronavirus. The flesh-colored bandages were seen on the back of Trump's right hand as he delivered remarks from a balcony at the White House to supporters on the South Lawn on Saturday. The bandages were placed in a spot that is commonly used to deliver IV fluids or medications. Much less commonly, it could be used as a site to draw blood for tests, if veins in the arm were difficult to access, a medical expert told DailyMail.com. The expert noted that it is possible the bandages were placed over an accidental cut or scratch, thought the location would be highly coincidental.
