Diddy breaks cover: Embattled rapper is seen for the first time since sex trafficking

The 54-year-old flashed a peace sign and sported a track suit as he exited Top Golf with daughters Jessie and D’Lila, 17, after playing for two hours, as reported by TMZ . The seemingly relaxed outing comes just days after Diddy’s mansions in Los Angeles and Miami were raided on Monday as part of a sex-trafficking investigation. The same day rapper’s alleged drug mule, Brendan Paul, 25, was arrested by Miami-Dade Police and Homeland Security agents at Opa-Locka Executive Airport. Paul, who played two years on the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team, is charged with felony cocaine possession and marijuana possession. He is being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami on two $2,500 bonds. The criminal investigation is a major escalation in the scrutiny of Combs, who has been the defendant in several sexual abuse lawsuits in recent months.

EXCLUSIVE‘Bullying’ council threaten 97-year-old woman who feeds birds in her back garden with £2,500 fine or court action to force her and her son out of their privately-owned home

'Bully' council threatens pensioner, 97, who feeds birds in her garden with a £2,500 fine

EXCLUSIVE: A dispute over a 97-year-old woman feeding birds in her back garden has escalated with the ‘bullying’ council now threatening a £2,500 fine or even court action to force her and her son out of their privately-owned home. Retired music teacher Anne Seago (right with her son) enjoys the simple pleasure of watching from her conservatory as sparrows and robins feed off seeds on her bird table (top left). A complaint from a neighbour that she was attracting pigeons and seagulls prompted the council to issue a ‘written warning’ last November and threaten a £100 fine if the ‘anti-social behaviour’ doesn’t cease. Now, amid claims the birds are still being fed, Fylde Council has issued her son Alan, 77, who lives with her, with another written warning. This time he is being threatened with a Community Protection Notice (CPN) and a potential fine of £2,500 for ‘non-compliance’ if the ‘anti-social behaviour’ doesn’t stop immediately.

Sally’s devastation: Smack the Pony and Alan Partridge star left ‘so, so upset’ after her son Olly who has Down’s syndrome was denied access to trampoline park as he didn’t have GP letter

Actress Sally Phillips has said she was ‘upset’ that her son who has Down’s syndrome was denied access to a trampoline park. The comedian, 53, known for creating and starring in sketch show Smack The Pony as well as her role playing Shazza in Bridget Jones’s Diary, revealed this week her child Olly was not allowed to play at Oxygen Acton in London. Phillips says the company refused him entrance because someone with Down’s syndrome needs a letter from the GP. She told BBC Breakfast on Friday: ‘Olly is used to being able to do what his contemporaries (do) … so we went with his younger brother, and younger brother’s friend, and we’ve been hundreds of times before, and the lady on the desk says, ‘oh, sorry, can I have a word?’ and called the manager over … I was so, so upset for Olly to be prevented.’ She added that ‘they’re weeding out people with visible disabilities’ and ‘so if you have an invisible disability, you’re not required to bring in a doctor’s letter’.

The most ridiculous plea deal ever! Murderer Alex Murdaugh accused of violating financial crime plea agreement after failing lie detector test over missing $6M – just days ahead of sentencing hearing

Alex Murdaugh is accused of breaching financial crime plea deal after failing lie detector

Prosecutors asked a court on Tuesday to release the federal government of their deal with the disgraced lawyer, who they say wasn’t truthful about where more than $6 million he stole ended up and whether another attorney not yet identified helped him steal from clients and his law firm. Murdaugh’s lawyers claim the FBI agent conducting the test threw the murderer off by asking odd questions and sharing that he had just examined Natalee Holloway’s killer Joran van der Sloot. The name-check of Joran van der Sloot in court papers Thursday is just the latest strange twist in the case of Murdaugh, the disbarred lawyer who is serving a life sentence for murder in the deaths of his wife and son. Murdaugh adamantly denies killing them, while admitting he stole millions from clients and his law firm because of a crippling drug addiction. The disagreement over the polygraph is taking place in dueling court filings before Murdaugh is scheduled to be sentenced Monday for the thefts in federal court. In their response, Murdaugh’s lawyers said the results were made unreliable by the FBI examiner who just before the exam asked Murdaugh if he could keep a secret, then told him he had just come from Alabama where he tested van der Sloot, who admitted to killing Natalee Holloway in 2005 in Aruba. The examiner also told Murdaugh he believed he didn’t kill his wife and son and asked him a confusing question about hidden assets, the defense said.
