JUST TWO DAYS AFTER HE WAS thrown metres when a car hit his scooter on the Italian island of Sardinia, a clearly injured George Clooney hobbled onto a private jet with the support of an assistant. The 57-year-old was seen making his way across the tarmac helped by ground staff and his wife, Amal, 40, who was carrying 1-year-old daughter Ella. George appeared in good spirits as he carefully made his way onto the plane, clutching rails with both hands as he climbed stairs to the jet bound for Rome.

IN THE WAKE OF JOE JACKSON’S DEATH, his son Michael’s doctor, Conrad Murray, has sensationally alleged Michael was chemically castrated to maintain his singing career.“The cruelty expressed by Michael that he experienced at the hand of his father,” Murray claimed on celebrity website The Blast.“The fact that he was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words.” Murray, who served two years’ jail after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in relation to Michael Jackson’s 2009 death, added:“I knew and cared for Michael very well and he told me of the many sufferings at the hands of his father he encountered. It was dreadful, beyond imagination and words.” He ended the scathing attack, by saying,“I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in hell.” Joe Jackson died aged 89 on June 27 following…

meghan & kate’s special friendship

AS THEY STEPPED OUT OF THEIR CAR to greet officials, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex smiled and waved their way through formalities before entering the revered All England Club tennis grounds for Day 12 of competition. “Some very special guests at Wimbledon today,” said the Club’s commentator of the royal pair. Kate was attending in an official capacity as a royal patron but accompanying her on July 14—in their first official outing together without their princely escorts—was sister-in-law Meghan who had a personal interest in the women’s singles final match: her close friend and wedding guest Serena Williams was in the running to take home the plate for the eighth time.
