Man United teenager allegedly offers $20,000 for threesome

He is an up-and-coming Manchester United mid-fielder.

Manager Louis van Gaal has described Andreas Pereira as a “big talent”.

Apparently, the 19-year-old is talented not just on the field but even off it.

Pereira, who made his debut for the Red Devils in their 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, allegedly tracked down a teenager on Twitter, messaged her on Whatsapp, and offered to pay her £10,000 ($20,000) for a threesome with him and his team-mate Paddy McNair.

It was not certain if McNair was involved or aware of the offer.

The girl, Kelly McKinney, told The Sun: “I nearly fell off my chair when he offered me £10,000 for a threesome. What kind of low-life does that? I’m not that kind of person at all and found it very, very insulting.”

McKinney, also 19, claimed that she had met Pereira at a bar after Man United’s Christmas party. She was then invited to join the players at the bar’s VIP area.

In a series of WhatsApp messages, McKinney apparently questioned if Pereira “actually wanted a threesome”.

Pereira, who was born in Belgium but plays for Brazil’s U-20 side, responded with an offer of £5,000 each from himself and McNair.

Pereira is alleged to have texted: “Threesome. Will take care of u. U want? How much. Tell me. We were ready to pay 5 each.”

Pereira’s agent Leo Scheinkman defended him, saying: “He is young and single and can have sex with whoever he wants. What does he have to apologise for?”

Premier League star shows off expensive car, but did he choose the wrong time?

There’s nothing wrong in showing off your new ride.

But timing plays a part in how well it’s received.

For example, being seen in a photo of yourself standing beside a £330,000 ($676,000) Lamborghini Aventador following a 4-0 defeat to Aston Villa is not such a good idea.

Sunderland’s Steven Fletcher, who reportedly earns £28,000 a week, got blasted on Twitter for doing exactly that.

And scoring seven goals in two seasons doesn’t help either.

One tweet read: “Here’s Steven Fletcher showing us that 17th in the league gets you a Lamborghini Aventador, & a Bentley Super-sport.”





What’s unknown is when the picture was taken.

What’s undisputable is that Sunderland are struggling. They are currently 17th on the Premiership table, one point above the relegation zone.

Oh, and that looks like a Bentley Supersport (worth about £160,000) in the background, in case you’re wondering.

Teen helping police with investigations into fake PMO statement about Lee Kuan Yew

Police have identified a male Singaporean student, below 16 years of age, in their investigations into the fake statement which was circulated about Mr Lee Kuan Yew on Wednesday (March 18). 

The screenshot was of a statement purportedly from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) website. 

Police say they were alerted to multiple messages at about 10.10pm on Wednesday night, and established the identity of the suspect within 24 hours. 

Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect was believed to have modified an earlier 2010 PMO statement hosted on the PMO website, and subsequently sent out a photo of the modified content. 

The student is believed to have operated alone. 

He is assisting police with investigations. 

If found guilty, he may be fined up to $50,000 or jailed up to 10 years or both, for Access with Intent to Commit or Facilitate Commission of Offence under Section 4(1) of the Computer Misuse and Cybersecurity Act, Chapter 50A.

Acting Director of the Criminal Investigation Department Assistant Commissioner of Police Sekher Warrier advised members of public not to spread falsehoods.

The police take a very stern view against anyone who doctors a government website to spread false information to deceive the public. Individuals who do so must be prepared to face the consequences under the law.

Ashley Judd recalls traumatic past rape, incest in hitting back against abusive Twitter users

What she wants: No more Internet trolls for Ashley Judd.

Women's rights is her cause and she means business.

Ashley Judd recently penned a powerful piece for website, addressing her traumatic past with rape and incest in hitting back at Twitter users who were verbally abusing her. 

On Sunday (March 15), the Hollywood actress had tweeted her disappointment at players of the Arkansas Razorbacks basketball team, whom she felt were "playing dirty". 

Her passionate tweet was because she is an alumna of the University Of Kentucky, and is a fan of the college's basketball team, the Wildcats.

The response she got - abusive messages that threatened rape - enraged her. 

She wrote: 

"During a conference championship game on Sunday, I posted a comment to Twitter that some found unsportsmanlike. I didn't much care for three players bleeding on the court, and I tweeted that the opponent was 'playing dirty & can kiss my team's free throw making a—.' The volume of hatred that exploded at me in response was staggering.

"I routinely cope with tweets that sexualize, objectify, insult, degrade and even physically threaten me...... But this particular tsunami of gender-based violence and misogyny flooding my Twitter feed was overwhelming.

"......My intellect was insulted: I was called stupid, an idiot. My age, appearance and body were attacked."

Judd, 46, then attached some of these abusive tweets in her post.

New York Daily News reported that Judd said that she is looking into taking legal action against these Internet trolls.

She implored people to stand up for "what is right" and continue to talk about the social injustice that occurs on social media platforms - perhaps best described by one of her Twitter supporters in the simple question: "How many guys tweet things like that during game, with no blow back?" (sic)

Having been sexually abused before, being vilified online had triggered painful emotions.

In her no-holds-barred essay, she gave shocking details of her traumatic past.

"I am a survivor of sexual assault, rape and incest. I am greatly blessed that in 2006, other thriving survivors introduced me to recovery. I seized it... 

"The summer of 1984 was tough for me. I experienced two rapes by an adult and systematic molestation from another adult, who also had another man in the room watching (I now understand this was to ensure he had a witness, in order to undermine me in the event I tried to report the incident). I have done purgative, cathartic work on those particular acts of violence. The nature of recovering from trauma is that it can be ongoing, with deeper levels of healing and freedom coming with indefatigable persistence to keep chipping away at it."

Who is the girl that may have caused Zayn's temporary break from One Direction tour?

This picture of Zayn Malik, who is engaged, and a fan in Thailand has been the subject of much scrutiny.

Many Directioners are probably picking up the pieces of their broken heart.

It was announced yesterday (March 19) that One Direction member Zayn Malik has quit the group's ongoing tour temporarily, and will miss concerts in Manila and Jakarta.

A spokesman for the band said: "Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta."

Could he be going back home to smooth things over with with his fiancee Perrie Edwards from UK band Little Mix?

After all, the last time Zayn was accused of cheating on her with a prostitute, he emerged a few months later with a tattoo of a cartoon version of Edwards.

It is rumoured that Zayn has been stressed out by heavy criticism following rumours that he had cheated on Edwards with a fan he had met while clubbing in Phuket.

A photo posted by Lauren x (@laurenrich_x) on


It's clear that Zayn is trying to make amends after all.

Meanwhile, bandmate Liam Payne has also taken to Twitter, though his comment doesn't address Zayn's temporary departure directly.



So who is the girl in the photo that's possibly causing all this ruckus?

These are some facts that we know about her.

1. Who is she?

Her name is Lauren Rich. And she lives in Essex, England.

2. Lauren and Zayn have something in common.

The both of them are clearly fan of tattoos - she has several on her body including one of the Mad Hatter.

3. The photo was completely innocent, says friends

While some fans are convinced that Zayn cheated on Edwards, friends of Lauren say that the photo is nothing to be mad about.

One her friends, who didn't want to be named, said: "It's probably totally innocent. She's just had her picture taken with a celebrity and now it's blown up to this."

Fifa confirm Dec 18 date for 2022 World Cup final

Fifa have confirmed a Dec 18 date for the controversial 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Fifa have confirmed a Dec 18 date for the controversial 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Mark the date: Dec 18.

Football’s governing body Fifa on Thursday approved holding the final of the controversial 2022 World Cup in Qatar on this date, a top official said.

It also awarded the 2019 women’s World Cup to France which defeated South Korea in a vote by the Fifa executive committee.

The decision on the date of the 2022 final ended a long-running and acrimonious debate about the timing as it will be the first tournament to be held in the northern winter.

A change to a winter World Cup was forced on Fifa by the scorching temperatures in Qatar in June-July.


European clubs have complained about the disruption to their cash-rich domestic championships, however.

And even the dates for the November-December tournament were not unanimous.

England and other countries opposed this because of the clash with traditional games played over the Christmas and New Year period.

Uefa, Europe’s governing body had initially preferred December 23 for the final, but have since changed their minds. European federations are still worried about dates for international matches scheduled at that time, however.

The compromise will probably see the tournament reduced to 28 days instead of the 32 for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Move forward

Fifa’s communications chief Walter de Gregorio said that deciding the date of the final was “an important step. Finally we know and we can move forward”.

He told reporters:

“The final will be on December 18. It is a Sunday and it is also the national day of Qatar, so it fits perfectly.
“In principle we try to play in 28 days. The next step will be to have different talks, especially (on) the international calendar.”

The date of the start of the tournament will probably not be decided until the end of the year, Fifa sources said.

Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Federation, said the proposed date could push European leagues to play more matches in summer.

Less in winter, more in summer

“It is a good decision for players,” Le Graet said.

“I have always been a supporter of playing less in winter and more in summer.”

European clubs are expected to press for some kind of compensation for halting their national league and Champions League games for at least five weeks.

Blatter has previously said that compensation was not needed. But he has since held talks with the head of the European Club Association, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, chairman of German giants Bayern Munich.

Fifa paid US$70 million ($97.1m) to clubs who had players at the 2014 World Cup and this scheme could be enlarged for 2022.

Uefa is already promising 150 million euros ($222.2m) for clubs whose players are on duty at the 2016 European Championships in France.

Women's World Cup

France will also hold the 2019 women’s World Cup, which is fast growing in popularity around the globe, and the women’s under 20 World Cup in 2018.

Blatter said that France and South Korea had both been strong candidates for the World Cup but the final vote was made by the executive committee “with confidence”.

Blatter hailed France’s attempts to develop the women’s game.

France’s national team are ranked third in the world and Lyon have been European club champions twice in the past four years.

“It is magnificent news for French women’s football,” said Lyon player Camille Abily.

This year’s women’s World Cup will be held in Canada and huge crowds are expected for the tournament spread across six cities from June 6 to July 5.

France has already decided it will stage the World Cup in nine cities. - AFP

Man jailed 30 years, given 24 strokes for sexually abusing 31 boys

He sexually abused 31 boys over three years.

Quality assurance engineer, Yap Weng Wah, 31, was today jailed 30 years and ordered to receive the maximum 24 strokes of the cane for sexually abusing 31 boys over three years.

He was involved in what the judge said was the worst case of sexual offences against young boys.

Yap, a Malaysian, came to Singapore to work in 2009 had kept more than 2,000 video clips on his laptop showing him sexually violating the children.

He pleaded guilty on Jan 16 to 12 counts of sexual penetration of a minor.

Another 64 charges were taken into consideration during sentencing.


Man swallows cigarette so he won't get fined for puffing in no-smoking zone but...

What will you do to avoid getting fined for lighting up in a no-smoking zone? Don't do what this man did.

Here's a reminder to those caught lighting up in a non-smoking zone: Just pay up.

The financial pain probably won't be as terrible compared to what this man in Segamat, Johor, went through.

The  30-year-old swallowed a burning cigarette butt to avoid getting fined by health officers who were conducting random spot checks.

It seems he acted on impulse, stuffing the still-lit stick in his mouth.

But he ended up vomiting everything out as he could not tolerate the heat from the burning tobacco inside his mouth, Malaysian newspaper Star Online reported, citing Harian Metro.

Giving excuses

Segamat district health office senior officer Dr Mokhtar Ahmad said that many stubborn smokers who were caught violating the non-smoking regulation had often gave excuses.

For instance, they would say they were illiterate or unaware they were in a smoke-free zone.

But not everyone becomes the butt of jokes, unlike this man in pain.
