Son, 14, electrocuted cleaning house while virus-stricken mum was in hospital – The Sun

A TRAGIC teenager has died after being electrocuted as he cleaned the family home while his mum was in hospital with the coronavirus.

Juan Eduardo, 14, decided to stay and look after the family home after his mother Adriana, 37, was taken to hospital with breathing difficulties in the municipality of Ecatepec, in the central Mexican state of Mexico.

The mother had been diagnosed with Covid-19 several days before and her son had reportedly been looking after her until her condition worsened.

After she was taken to hospital Adriana sent her children, Juan Eduardo, a 15-year-old daughter and two twins whose names are not reported, to live with their relatives, but Juan Eduardo decided to stay home to look after it and wait for his mother's return.

Reports state a heavy rainstorm hit the area and water went into the home, with the teenager then turning on a pump to remove it as he cleaned the house.

However, there was a short circuit and the youngster was electrocuted, according to reports.

His mother told local media: “My son told me ‘I will stay with you, if you die, what am I going to do? No, mum, I will die with you, we will die together.”

She said she will always be grateful for the care he gave her when she fell ill.

The teenager had recently celebrated his birthday, with local lawyer Carlos Mota from the Delots Foundation hearing he was looking after his mother and sending them cake and food.

After hearing of the tragic death, Mota said on social media that the mother had been harassed and threatened by neighbours after they found out she was infected with coronavirus.

Adriana reportedly suspects she may have contracted the virus in the last week of February but she is not certain.

According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Mexico has registered 2,143 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 94 deaths and 633 recovered.

Gary Lineker's son displays the extent of his coronavirus symptoms

‘Day 12 of not being able to smell or taste’: Gary Lineker’s son George displays the extent of his coronavirus symptoms by downing VINEGAR

  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

Gary Lineker’s son has revealed how bad his coronavirus symptoms are by drinking a glass of vinegar and not tasting it.

The Match of the Day host’s eldest George lost his sense of taste and smell, an early sign of coronavirus COVID-19 among many sufferers, nearly two weeks ago.

The 28-year-old is now in self-isolation at home, from where he posted a video of himself pouring out the sour tasting condiment before topping it off with a squeeze of lemon.

Down the hatch: Gary Lineker’s son has revealed how bad his coronavirus symptoms are by drinking a glass of vinegar and not tasting it

Guiding followers through the process on social media, he said: ‘A little taste challenge. I think I’m on about day 12 of not being able to smell or taste anything. Get some vinegar in here, that will do. Some lemon, put that in. Here we go.’  

Downing the vinegar in three quick gulps, George didn’t  flinch before screwing the lid back onto the vinegar bottle, telling fans:  ‘That’s quite strange.’ 

App company founder George originally posted the clip to his 88,500 Twitter followers and the 25-second video has been viewed over 129,000 times. He has since shared it with his 40,000 Instagram followers.

George tweeted: ‘Heard there’s a little taste challenge going around. As I’m on day 12 of not smelling or tasting anything, I thought I’d give it a go.’  

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona striker Lineker, 59, responded by quipping: ‘Tasteless.’  

The retired footballer recently admitted he will be staying at his home for the next two weeks in accordance with the UK government’s advice after George informed him that he thought that he may have contracted the potentially deadly respiratory disease.

Odd these have not been pointed out much. Been nearly a week and has spent time at mine. I’ve been vigilant, hand washing/distancing but isolation it is.’

He continued: ‘Worth being careful if you lose your sense of taste and smell. You could unknowingly have the virus. I checked all this with a doctor before sharing the information. Stay safe.’

Kourtney Kardashian to Son: Stop Spilling Our Family Secrets!

Well, it looks like one person is having no trouble managing his quarantine boredom!

Earlier this week, Mason Disick went on Instagram and started interacting with fans.

This was a problem for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that Kourtney Kardashian’s eldest child is only 10, and the site has an age requirement of 13.

To make matters worse, it seems Mason has no filter.

He happily answered questions about those Kylie Jenner-Travis Scott reconciliation rumors, confirming that Stormi’s parents are not back together.

Yes, Kylie and Travis have been dodging those questions for months, but Mason took a break from being homeschooled to tell the world point-blank “they’re not back together.”

Needless to say, Mason’s Instagram debut did not go over well — either with his family or the site’s admins.

Mason’s account was quickly deleted, and it seems his mother sat down with him to explain the perils of oversharing.

A source tells In Touch that the incident was a “huge wakeup call” for Kourtney and Scott, who are now keeping a closer eye on all three of their kids.

“The entire family is on high alert,” says one insider.

The main concern, of course, is not that Mason will reveal more family secrets, but that he’ll be taken advantage of by strangers on social media.

All children are vulnerable on social media, but Instagram is a particularly dangerous place for Mason, who still probably doesn’t realize the extent of his family’s fame.

“It’s never too late to start training your kids about what to say on social media,” the insider continues.

“Mason will not be allowed to be on any platform unsupervised until he’s at least 13,” the source adds.

Fortunately, it seems the Kards were able to find the humor in the situation.

“If Kylie and Travis’ relationship status was supposed to be secret, someone forgot to inform Mason,” the insider continued.

“Everyone [had] a good laugh about it.”

So in the end, we suppose no harm was done.

Mason learned a valuable lesson about privacy, and fans got the latest tea on Kyle and Travis.

The situation serves as a reminder that a whole new generation of Kar-Jenners will soon be blowing up on the ‘Gram.

Will they carry on the family legacy of mega-fame?

Only time will tell.

Angelina Jolie’s Son Maddox Returns Home as Coronavirus Shuts Down College

The oldest child of Angelina and Brad Pitt has reportedly rejoined his family in Los Angeles after his semester was canceled due to the spread of COVID-19 in South Korea.

AceShowbizAngelina Jolie‘s son Maddox has returned home early from his studies. The 18-year-old, who has been studying at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, has reportedly reunited with his family in Los Angeles after his semester was canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to PEOPLE which first reported the news, the eldest child of Angelina and Brad Pitt is using the downtime to focus on his Korean and Russian studies. Like most other Americans, the college student and his family, including his mother and five siblings Pax, Zaharam Shiloh, as well as twins Knox and Vivienne, are staying home to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Angelina is using everything in her might to help kids in need in this time of crisis. The 44-year-old actress has donated $1 million to No Kid Hungry, an organization distributing meals to children who relied on school lunches.

“As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus,” the Academy Award-winning actress said in a statement. “Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support. No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”

According to a press release, the charity has already distributed $2 million to 78 organizations in 30 states across the country and issued new emergency grants to school districts, food banks and community organizations feeding kids nationwide.

Angelina, who has been known for her works as a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has also made a donation to the UN Refugee Agency and sent support to the schools she funds in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Kenya and Namibia in an attempt to help make teaching and learning still possible amid the ongoing pandemic.

Of course that's stopped now, but yesterday he just bought beer in and drank in front of the telly, completely ignoring me. I feel trapped and have forgotten who I really am.

Mom ‘gave son, 6, a black eye & tried to blame it on 1-year-old “bully” baby’ – The Sun

A MOTHER accused of giving her six-year-old son a black eye allegedly tried to blame the act on a one-year-old "bully baby."

After the six-year-old showed up to school with a black eye, police said the boy told officials his mother hit him because he misbehaved, KFDX reported.

Etta Simmons, 28 told Texas cops she did not know how the child got the black eye – and guessed it happened from her one-year-old son, KFDX reported.

She said the one-year-old was a "bully," cops said.

The child told cops his Witchita Falls mother also put makeup on the injury before sending him to school, police said.

Simmons admitted to cops she tried to cover up the black eye because she didn't want to get in trouble, KFDX reported.

Records accessed by The Sun show the alleged incident occurred on October 22, 2017.

The mother was first arrested for child abuse in November 2017, according to records accessed by The Sun.

Simmons was released on a $2,500 surety bond shortly after her initial arrest.

Late last week, Simmons was arrested again on the child abuse charge, with a bond set for $5,001, records accessed by The Sun show.

Simmons was arrested the second time because she did not show up for her pretrial hearing and her bond was revoked, KFDX.

Records show Simmons posted her bond the same day she was arrested, and was released from prison.

Her new pretrial date is set for April 2, KFDX reported.

Amber Portwood: My Son Loves Me So Much, You Guys!

Poor James Glennon.

The 22-month old doesn’t just have Amber Portwood for a mother…

… the 22-month is also apparently just like Amber Portwood.

And while we know it’s mean to judge and while we know we should try to be as understanding as possible and consider the context for people who get into serious trouble, well;

If true, this simply sucks for the young child.

Portwood, of course, is best known for her long-running role on Teen Mom OG.

But she’s more recently best known for having gotten arrested in July 2019 for allegedly assaulting boyfriend Andrew Glennon while he was holding little James in his arms, even (allegedly) taking a machete to the bathroom door behind which daddy and son were coweriing.

Yikes, right?!?

Amber hasn’t spoken in much detail about the incident, and has stayed especially quiet on social media of late.

But she talked this week to Us Weekly about her son and at least made it sound as if she’s very active in his life.

“I see a lot of myself in him and it’s beautiful,” the reality star told this tabloid, adding:

“He loves music and that’s one thing that I love. And he loves just being around me and cuddling, and always wants me to pick him up and dance and move him around.”

This is obviously a positive thing overall.

Thankfully, James was so young when his mother and father got into their vicious altercation last summer that he’s likely forgotten about it already.

Is Portwood really a fit and/or responsible mother? It hasn’t seem that way for awhile.

But it’s good that her kid still views her as one, you know? Ignorance is bliss for a toddler.

Portwood also Us Weekly her son is doing “amazing” while she and Glennon try to adjust to a coparenting lifestyle following their break-up.

We know a restraining order against Portwood was put in place at one point and she wasn’t permitted to spend any time with James — but it’s unclear at the moment just where this legal situation stands.

According to the police, Portwood hit Glennon “while he was holding” their toddler during an argument, resulting in this no-contact order with her son.

It sounds as if the order was lifted soon afterward, however, and she has since been granted supervised visits.

As for her future as a free woman?

The 29-year old MTV personality worked out a plea deal in October 2019 and walked away with a felony charge and one year of probation.

She won’t be heading to prison any time soon.

This point, Portwood says she to see her son “fairly a lot,” telling Us Weekly in this new interview:

“I get a lot of people tell me after my days with him: ‘I can tell that you saw James today because you just have that smile on your face,’ and when I hear that, I’m like, ‘Yeah.’

“It’s just the truth.”

For more on how things arre going with Amber these days, be sure to tune in to MTV when Teen Mom OG returns with new episodes.

This would be TOMORROW NIGHT, March 17, at 8/7c. Get psyched, people!

Tom Hanks’ son shares coronavirus update about his famous parents

Tom Hanks announced he and wife Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus on March 11, 2020. While shooting a movie in Australia, Hanks wrote on Instagram that he and Wilson “felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches.” They also had slight fevers, and Wilson had intermittent chills. After going to get tested, they were diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.

The news came as an eye-opening shock. Not only is Hanks everyone’s favorite movie star, but he’s also the first high-profile celebrity to be diagnosed with COVID-19. As journalist Ann Curry tweeted, “Now we all have someone we love diagnosed.”

At 63 years old, Hanks is in the age group at the highest risk for coronavirus, per USA Today. As of this reporting, the virus has claimed over 4,600 lives, and over 120,000 people have been diagnosed worldwide (via the World Health Organization). The WHO upgraded the outbreak to “global pandemic” status on the same day of Hanks’ announcement.

Nonetheless, in true Hanks fashion, his announcement was remarkably calm. “Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?” he wrote. He is one of the most notoriously chill, down-to-earth actors in Hollywood, after all. His son Chet Hanks doesn’t seem to be overly panicked either. Shortly after Hanks’ announcement, Chet shared a reassuring video update about his parents’ health.

Chet Hanks says his parents are 'not even that sick'

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s son Chet Hanks explained in a video that his parents aren’t too sick, nor are they too concerned. “Yeah, it’s true my parents got coronavirus. Crazy,” Chet said in the IG video. “They’re both down in Australia right now because my dad was shooting a movie down there but I just got off the phone with them. They both are fine, they’re not even that sick. They’re not worried about it, they’re not trippin’ but they’re going through the necessary health precautions, obviously.”

He added, “I don’t think it’s anything to be too worried about. I appreciate everyone’s concern and the well wishes. But I think it’s all going to be alright. I appreciate it. Just everybody stay safe out there. Much love.” Wilson commented, “Love you angel” on the video. Chet’s brother Colin Hanks also posted his own update, which was equally reassuring. Colin said he’s “confident” that Hanks and Wilson will “make a full recovery.”

Chet is the most controversial member of the Hanks family

Tom Hanks has five children, including two older kids from a previous marriage and three with his current wife Rita Wilson. But Chet Hanks tends to garner the most public attention out of all the Hanks siblings — and not in a positive way.

Chet is a controversial figure, to say the least. The 29-year-old has drawn criticism for a number of actions over the years, from using fake Jamaican patois at the 2020 Golden Globes to aggressively defending his use of the N-word on Instagram. The latter incident happened in 2015, when he was known as “Chet Haze” — his rapper name. Yep, Tom Hanks has a rapper son, because real life is stranger than fiction sometimes. 

While Tom Hanks is universally beloved, Chet Hanks most definitely is not. It’s not just his missteps that many take issue with, but also his steadfast refusal to apologize or learn from his mistakes. For example, he appeared to relish in the backlash over using fake patois, an act of cultural appropriation. He did finally apologize for using the N-word in 2018, explaining that he was “on a lot of drugs” and “trolling” (via Ebony). But for many critics, it was too little too late.

Chet Hanks' coronavirus update has prompted mixed reactions

As more and more folks are spending time at home due to the pandemic, people are probably even more tuned-in to celebrity updates than usual. People are definitely heartbroken about Tom Hanks’ coronavirus diagnosis despite his family’s reassurances, and in some cases, they’re taking it out on their least favorite member of the Hanks family, Chet.

One woman posted on her Instagram Story, facetiously begging the coronavirus to take Chet instead of Tom. “@coronavirus PLEASE take @chethanx instead we CANNOT lose Tom Hanks,” the woman wrote. Because she boldly tagged Chet’s Instagram username in the post, it caught his attention, according to a screenshot that went viral on Twitter. True to form, he replied to the story, “F**k you b***h.” In response, the woman apologized and wished him and his family well.

For other folks, Chet has proved to be a deeply comforting figure in this scary time, thanks to his calm video update. “Listen, I didn’t think I would be taking my cues about calming down during the end of the world from Chet Hanks,” BuzzFeed writer Scaachi Koul wrote. “We need comfort where we can get it right now.”

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are now in isolation at the Gold Coast University Hospital in Queensland, Australia. And according to The Washington Post, the Sydney Opera House is trying to trace over 200 people who may have come into contact with them.

Liam Gallagher’s son, 18, and Ringo Starr’s grandson, 19, accused of attacking Tesco worker – The Sun

LIAM Gallagher's son and Ringo Starr's grandson are accused of attacking a Tesco Worker as their friend 'racially abused' him for refusing to sell them alcohol.

Gene Gallagher, 18, and grandson of the Beatles drummer Sonny Starkey, 19, arrived at Wood Green Crown Court for trial this morning along with their model pal Noah Ponte, 19.



The trio wore suits for their appearance, which Gallagher covered with a raincoat, burying his hands in his pockets.

Their trial follows an initial hearing at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court last month, during which all three denied charges of affray.

'WONDERBRAWL'

Gallagher and Starkey were described as "windmilling" down the aisle at a shopkeeper trying to stop them leaving, Highbury Corner Magistrates were told.

IMG-signed model Ponte was accused of racially abusing Shium Patel after he couldn't buy a can of beer at midnight, as it was after 11pm, and tried to walk out of the store without paying, the court heard.

All three were charged with affray, using or threatening unlawful violence towards another, with Ponte also charged with racially aggravated common assault.

He is accused of telling Mr Patel, "You bloody Indians. Go back to where you came from. You're not wanted here."

Starkey was supported in court by drummer and road manager father Jason, while Liam Gallagher did not attend.

Gene is the son of the former Oasis frontman and All Saints star Nicole Appleton.

He was accompanied to his last court appearance by his uncle, The Prodigy star Liam Howlett – who is married to Nicole's sister Natalie.
