TikToker Gains Fame For Sharing His Vasectomy Experience And Instigating Men To Stop Using Birth Control

TikToker goes viral for sharing his vasectomy experience, encourages men to pull their birth control weight.

After Roe v. Wade was overturned, a well-known model and TikTok user who posts vegan recipes took the time to describe what it was like for him to undergo a vasectomy. Keith Laue wanted to reassure his fellow cisgender guys that the treatment was straightforward to arrange, not unpleasant, and simple to recuperate from.

Many people who may benefit from vasectomy are concerned about having any surgery performed in that somewhat peaceful location. Still, because of modern advancements, it is now one of the most straightforward procedures you could undergo. Laue’s procedure only took approximately 15 minutes; he didn’t need to be sedated, and his rehabilitation consisted of three days of ice packs and over-the-counter medicines.

It all began with a phone consultation, which Laue describes as simple. “They addressed my queries and scheduled the appointment for a few weeks in the future. I purchased Valium for my nervousness the day before. I had a local anesthetic when I entered. Although the operation kept me awake the entire time, which was strange, it only took about 10 or 15 minutes, so it wasn’t too unpleasant.

The treatment can be carried out using various methods, including “no scalpel” approaches that seal each vas deferens on at least one side using lasers or other technology. During the outpatient procedure, many patients experience little to no discomfort. Typically, they are only requested to stay at the doctor’s office for an hour for recuperation before being sent home with instructions to rest for several days.

Laue said, “I didn’t really work out again for almost a week after that.” “I was really good to go after that, and I can do anything at this point, so I’m okay,” the patient said.

“The first three days or so, I used a lot of strong ibuprofen and ice and didn’t move too much.”

After a week of rest, most patients say they can resume their regular sexual activity without any pain or other complications. Along with decreasing common concerns regarding vasectomies, Laue also urged others to have one, particularly cisgender males who don’t always uphold their responsibility regarding birth control.

The most typical relationship type frequently falls on women taking medications or having devices surgically placed into their bodies to avoid pregnancy. Contrary to vasectomies, hormonal birth control frequently has adverse effects. With several methods of contraception, Laue’s spouse experienced them to an extreme degree, influencing their choice to get a vasectomy.

“Other factors included that we already have a daughter and would be happy to foster more children if we were in a position to do so. My boyfriend does not have insurance, but I do. My spouse has a far tougher time getting her tubes tied or an IUD than I do getting a vasectomy. It’s better for my spouse not to worry about women’s healthcare since the Supreme Court has rendered it risky and unreliable.”

Vasectomies can occasionally, but not always, be undone, so it’s crucial to give the surgery careful thought, consult with specialists, and balance the risks before deciding if it’s the best choice for you.

Woman Married a Topless Waiter She Booked For Her Divorce Party

Woman marries waiter she hired for her divorce party; their love story is viral:

A woman claimed to be in love with a topless waiter whom she hired for her divorce party.

According to The Mirror, after getting heartbroken, 29-year-old Gabriella Landolfi booked topless waiters to celebrate her divorce in March 2019.

At her party, she fell for one of the waiters, John Landolfi, who was almost a year younger than her. The duo moved in together only after a month of dating and are now happily married with a kid.

Their fairytale began when John texted Gabriella the next day of her party and asked if she was doing well.

“I was getting divorced. It was final, I was heartbroken and low on spirits. But I decided to get over it and not let it get to my head so I threw a party, and invited my friends to come over and celebrate the end of my stupid marriage.”

“I also hired a few topless waiters so that we could all have some fun and kill the sadness. However, there was this one waiter I quite liked. He was very much into his looks and body, and rightly so. John is very handsome.”

Gabriella said that she was surprised when she received a text from John; he dropped a text on her number a day after the party to check on her. So, the two met the following day and clicked.

Gabriella, who works as a humanities teacher in Australia, said,

“I never expected to get into a relationship with the topless waiter I hired for my divorce party – let alone marry him. But when I got to know him, I could see what an amazing guy he was. It was quite the whirlwind, and I’m so glad I hired him.”

She further said, “At first, I thought he was too into his looks, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Now I have the most beautiful family.”

John, who works as an insurance assessor, said,

“When I saw Gabbie, I thought she was cool and wanted to get to know her. I was just looking for a friendship, and I never expected to find my wife.”

“I was doing my job, and I never thought this would happen. Being with Gabbie just felt right.”

“I never saw it as a whirlwind; it felt like we knew each other forever.”

The Mirror wrote that after ending her decade-long toxic marriage in 2019, Gabriella decided to get over, put an end to her misery, and begin a new chapter of her life. She started by throwing a party and was up for a new fling.

“My friends suggested getting topless waiters, and I just thought: ‘Why not?’” said Gabriella.

“It felt like I was finally free and wanted to celebrate. I don’t remember being able to speak to John that much, but I remember he said he would text me the next day when he left.”

“I just laughed it off, so I was shocked when he did.”

“We ended up seeing each other every night, and I got to know him and his soft side. He had a daughter from a previous relationship, and knowing he was a dad really made me grow to like him and see that sweet side of him,” she added.

Later, John proposed to her on the top of the Rialto tower, Melbourne, Australia, and Gabriella said yes to him without a second thought.

“I was shocked as we’d joked about getting engaged, but I didn’t think it would happen so soon.”

“I’d jokingly pointed out the ring I liked, and there he was holding it out to me across the table.” She said.

The couple welcomed their baby boy Matteo in July 2021.

“He’s amazing. I can’t believe I’m a mum as I didn’t think it would be possible. I have the most amazing family.” Gabriella said.

Marc Anthony is on a PDA Spree with Fiancée Nadia Ferreira while his ex-wife J.Lo is on her Honeymoon with 4th husband Ben Affleck

Marc Anthony is on a PDA Spree with Fiancée Nadia Ferreira while his ex-wife J.Lo is on her Honeymoon with 4th husband Ben Affleck.

El Cantante actor Marc Anthony celebrated her engagement with his new fiancée, Nadia Ferreira, with friends at Inter Game Miami and was seen kissing his new love interest.

The couple announced their engagement earlier in May when Ferreira posted an Insta story flaunting her engagement ring.

“Engagement Partyyyyy!!!” she captioned her photo and tagged Marc.

“And now Marc Anthony and his new fiancée Nadia Ferreira looked happier than ever as they packed on the PDA while watching Inter Miami take on FC Cincinnati in Fort Lauderdale.” Daily Mail reported on Sunday.

The 53-year-old American singer and songwriter couldn’t keep his hands off his model fiancée during the entire event. The duo was captured sharing a passionate kiss, and it became viral. The news came a few weeks after Anthony’s ex-wife Jennifer Lopez married Ben Affleck.

“Clearly enamored with each other, the lovebirds gazed into each other’s eyes and wrapped their arms around each other as they watched the MLS game.

“Nadia, who turned 23 on May 10, looked stunning in an all-white ensemble.”

“Flashing a hint of her toned midriff – the beauty queen accessorized the look with a Chanel belt and crossbody bag.” Wrote Daily Mail.

The 23-year-old model looked stunning in her chic outfit, while Marc pulled off a rather casual rig; he wore a navy shirt and denim jeans.

Meanwhile, his ex-wife Lopez is currently having a blast in Europe, where she is on her honeymoon trip with her batman husband, Ben Affleck.

The couple tied the knot in July in Los Angeles and surprised the internet with their gorgeous wedding pictures.

“That’s exactly what we wanted. We went to Vegas last night and stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same trip to the world’s wedding capital. Two males clasped hands and held each other behind us.”

“In front of us, a young couple who drove three hours from Victorville on the occasion of their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanted the same thing: for the world to recognize us as partners and to announce our love to the world via the old and practically universal symbol of marriage.” J.Lo wrote on her Instagram.

The Live It Up singer remained married to Anthony for almost four years, from 2004 to 2014. The couple share two kids, twins Emme and Max.

Lopez started dating Marc in 2003 when she broke up with Affleck a few months before they were supposed to get married. However, her relationship with Marc also didn’t work out.

“Marc and I are good how we are right now. There’s a reason we’re not together, but we’re great friends. And we’re parents together. We’re even working on a Spanish album together. [And] that has been even better for us. We met working, and that’s where we’re magical when we’re on stage together, so we leave it there. That’s it.” Lopez stated in one of her interviews, as reported by the US Magazine.

Even After 47 years, Ron Howard’s Marriage Is Still Strong Despite His Disbelief

“When we met, I felt fortunate. It’s absurd. Since we were adolescents, it shouldn’t have worked. We were both too young to be married, but it has worked well,”

In part, because they met while they were young, according to film director Ron Howard, their four decades of marriage to wife Cheryl Howard has beyond his expectations. Ron Howard, an actor, stopped by the HuffPost Live studio in October 2013 to discuss one of his projects.

Josh Zepps, the host, enquired about his union with Cheryl Howard. Ron said that despite the strong possibility that their relationship would fail, it had flourished fruitfully. He talked about how fortunate he is to have met the future actress.

The screenwriter said they were high school sweethearts, adding that because they were married young, he was surprised by how far they had come.

“When we met, I felt fortunate. It’s absurd. Since we were adolescents, it shouldn’t have worked. We were both too young to be married, but it has worked well,” he said.

He and she first connected as a junior at Burbank, California’s John Burroughs High School. The Academy Award-winning filmmaker remarked that they clicked immediately after catching one other’s gaze.

Ron spoke of his wife in a People interview from June 2019: “I met her, and there was never anybody else.” He claimed the key to their long-lasting marriage is communication as they celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary that month.

He clarified, “People ask me how I do it; there is no method. There is just one technique, and that is to communicate. You must develop the skills to communicate and handle challenging talks effectively.”

The father of four continued by saying that it was merely luck since, in his opinion, no one can compel people to develop together; either they do or do not. Ron said that he considered himself fortunate to have Cheryl as his rock throughout his life.

He spoke of the author’s dedicated support, particularly during his career. He continued by saying that their compatibility had seen many highs and lows throughout their remarkable life together.

“She has always been so supportive. Our compatibility has held up through various situations,” the producer stated.

Ron is noteworthy because, at the early age of five, he portrayed Opie on “The Andy Griffin Show,” which aired from 1960 to 1968. From 1974 until 1980, he appeared on “Happy Days” as Richie Cunningham. Later, Howard developed a new love for becoming a camera operator.

The star of “The Da Vinci Code” admitted that he was an actor who aspired to become a filmmaker. His most recent documentary, “Pavarotti,” chronicles the life of the renowned opera singer.

Ron and Cheryl married for 47 years after getting hitched in June 1975. When they celebrated their anniversary in June 2021, the “Willow” actor demonstrated that they were still going strong. He posted on social media to thank his girlfriend for the special times they had together.

Ron wrote his picture, which included a selfie of the couple,

“Our 46th wedding anniversary. On my day off from directing, we celebrated in Australia quietly but exquisitely. I’m a fortunate man.

In the adorable shot with rose-colored tinfoil balloons in the shapes of a 4 and 6, he and Cheryl were beaming and wearing glasses. Ron and Cheryl, both 67 years old, like sharing milestone celebrations, as seen by his social media posts. Ron commemorated the couple’s 50th first date anniversary in 2020. He wrote on Instagram that they saw a movie that was being rereleased and went out for pizza at a bygone restaurant while he reminisced about the good old days.

“On November 1st, 1970, Cheryl and I went on our first date, he wrote. We visited the now-defunct Barnone’s in Toluca Lake after seeing Stanley Kramer’s “It’s a Mad World” in rerelease.”

A photo of his socks, which were imprinted with Cheryl’s face, was posted along with the article. Ron said they were heading to their neighborhood pizza business and celebrating their big day with the socks they ordered.

He continued by saying they would go in the identical vehicle they did fifty years ago. The 1970 VW Bug is the one the Oklahoma native drove to pick up his future bride, and he said of it: “It works fine. We agree.“

The couple remains happily married, and we couldn’t be happier for them!

J.Lo’s Ex-Husband Ojani Noa Says Her Marriage with Ben Affleck Won’t Last Long

Jennifer Lopez’s First Husband Says Marriage With Ben Affleck Won’t Last😳

As we all know that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez got married on July 16, 2022, in Las Vegas.

According to court documents acquired by TMZ, the pair received a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, which was obtained and processed on Saturday, July 16. It’s in both of their names and not just their legal names. Jennifer Lynn Lopez and Benjamin Geza Affleck.

Soon later, Jennifer broke the news to her admirers in a video message in her newsletter. She was teary-eyed and said, “You’re wonderful,” before revealing her stunning green diamond ring.

The duo got engaged in late 2002, but they called it quits in 2004 before marriage. They moved on with their lives and married other people, even became parents. However, the exes reunited about a year ago and appeared inseparable. As we’ve documented, the indication of them getting married has been there all along.

After three failed marriages, 53-years-old Jennifer finally wed the love of her life.

Speaking about her soul mate, she said,

“Maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in Las Vegas at twelve-thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive-through with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with.”

While the world has been celebrating the star couple’s union and their fairytale wedding, Jen’s ex-husband, Ojani Noa, is not quite mesmerized by the new couple’s romantic love affair.

Daily Mail wrote that according to Ojani, he was also the ‘love of her life’ back then when he and J.Lo were together, and she told him she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.

“I wish her and Ben the best, but I’m not convinced it will last,” Ojani said.

“Jen loves being in love, but she’s been engaged six times. Ben is husband number four. I was husband number one, and she told me I was the love of her life and we would be together forever.

The couple parted ways in 1988, just a year after getting married. After their divorce, they stayed friends for a few years.

And now, this is the first time that Ojani has publicly spoken about their relationship.

“We were together romantically for two years but friends for nearly a decade.”

“There were many times I felt like Mr. Cinderella,’ he said. ‘She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. In the beginning, I had no idea who she was.”

“We fell in love when she was already famous. But during our marriage, she became a megastar. For years it was too painful to talk about. I wanted to lie low and live my life. But when I saw she got married to Ben, who is a good guy, the feelings came flooding back.”

He further said, “There has been so much written about Jen and I, especially in the past couple of weeks, most of it wrong. I want people to know the real story.”

The former couple met for the first time in 1996 in a Cuban restaurant where Noa was working as a waiter on Miami’s famous Ocean Drive.

“It was a miracle we survived the crossing. I had no idea who she was. Our eyes glanced at each other, and I thought she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen.”

“I was smitten.” He continued. “She was wearing a white top and trousers, and I remember thinking she had the best body I’d ever seen. She later told me she knew she was going to marry me the first night.”

According to Noa, his marriage with Lopez didn’t work out because of her celebrity status.

“She’s a traditional girl. She comes from a humble Puerto Rican family. She wanted someone to protect her, someone who would stand up for her. We fell totally in love,” he said.

“I quit my job and moved to LA. We lived in a nice apartment. But soon we moved into our first house, and the houses kept getting bigger. She loved that I was a balseros [rafter] from Cuba. I never wanted anything from her. I always worked and had my own money.”

“She loves shopping, and when she wasn’t filming, we went to the local mall. One day we went into a jewelry store, and she started looking at rings. She pointed at one and said, ‘I love that one.’”

“She left, and I pretended I needed to go to the restroom. I snuck back into the store and told the girl to put it aside. I had money saved up. I’d been working as her personal trainer but also had modeling money. The ring was $15,000 – a fortune back then. I hid the ring in a plastic bag behind the sink.”

The pair decided to get married in February 1997 in Miami. Noa said things went downhill right from the day they got married.

“She went from Jen to being J Lo, this big business bringing in millions. She had all these new people around her, all wanting to make money off her. I would call, and an assistant would say, ‘Sorry, she’s not available.’”

He told the outlet that there was a time when he had to launch a nightclub in Los Angeles, which Jennifer partly owned. While he was busy during the launch, he came across her pictures with rapper Sean Combs who was working with J.Lo as her producer.

“I rang Jen and asked why she was going out with him on dates, and she said, “It’s just business. This is what I’m being told I have to do.” I was jealous and would scream, ‘But you are married!”’

“We wanted kids; we discussed having kids. Then she told me she couldn’t have a baby because it would interfere with her career.”

After having several issues, the couple eventually ended their marriage in 1998. Noa received $50,000 in the settlement and chose to stay friends with his ex-wife. Reports say he continued wearing his wedding ring for quite a long time after their divorce.

This Lesbian Couple Adopts Three Separated Brothers So They May Raise Them Together

We hope they’ve got the happiest of life together.

Many factors might contribute to establishing the ideal family, particularly if you’re a family considering adoption. Adoption is not necessarily a simple procedure. This applies to both prospective parents and the children.

You want to be completely compatible. However, like any family, compatibility may have ups and downs. They all learn crucial life lessons after this lesbian couple adopts three young boys. You must admit that destiny has a way of forming its plans. If you disagree, this article explains everything.

After getting married in 2013, KC and Lena Currie were eager to create their own family. They eventually adopted an 18-month-old boy named Joey in November 2017, and when they first met at the adoption event hosted by Children’s Friend in Worcester, it was love at first sight.

“Children’s Friend said it would be an excellent match after seeing a picture of Joey,” Lena explains.

Soon after, the two received a call from Children’s Friend informing them that Joey’s younger brother, Noah, who was only six weeks old at the time, also required a home.

KC allegedly remarked, “We answered yes right away.”

The Centre contacted the parents again a month after accepting Noah to let them know their sons have a middle brother named Logan. The corpse was not adopted but had been residing with a foster family. The couple ultimately decided to take him along after considerable consideration.

“It was our gut instinct because we valued maintaining the boys; we were ultimately going to say yes,” KC continued.

“They’ll have each other to depend on and share the experience with when they’re older and have questions.”

The Worcester courts saw the conclusion of Logan and Joey’s adoption procedure in 2019. The three brothers now have Lena and KC as their legal parents, and they are all looking forward to spending their days together in joy and love. According to Lena, they are addressed as Mama and Mommy by the kids, and they strive to be the most exemplary mothers ever. According to KC, they can now begin daydreaming about elementary schools, sports, and other activities.

“It’s what you hope will occur. They have a lovely family. They are adaptable and genuinely comprehend the child’s needs, the value of preserving sibling relationships, and the long-term effects of that, “according to Veronica Listerud, director of adoption and family services at Children’s Friend, a nonprofit organization associated with Seven Hills Foundation.

The family is finally all reunited, and they couldn’t be happier. Lena and KC are addressed as “mother” and “mama,” respectively. Most of the time, Joey says, “mommy-mama.” The Currie family posted pictures of the boys’ first holiday together, showing how content and cherished they are. The pair hopes that sharing their story will inspire others to think about adoption. Consequently, KC and Lena anticipate the boys throwing more dance parties, enjoying the holidays, and seeing the three interact as they mature.

Shakira Could Spend Eight years in Prison For Tax Fraud

Spanish prosecutors have called for more than eight years in prison and a fine of about $24 million for Shakira over alleged tax fraud, as the authorities push ahead with their years-long case against the Colombian pop star.

Shakira’s legal woes began in 2018 when Spanish authorities accused her of evading taxes amounting to 14.5 million euros, or nearly $15 million, between 2012 and 2014 — a three-year period during which she claimed she had not yet officially moved to Spain. A judge concluded last year that prosecutors had gathered sufficient evidence to pursue tax fraud charges in court.

On Friday, prosecutors unveiled six charges against Shakira, 45, after she rejected a settlement deal earlier this week, El País reported. According to the Spanish newspaper, authorities highlighted the substantial amount of taxes she allegedly owed, as well as her record of using offshore tax havens, as aggravating factors in the case.

The Grammy-winning performer, famous for hit songs such as “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Waka Waka,” has denied wrongdoing on multiple occasions, including during her court testimony in 2019.

Shakira’s publicists in London said the singer “has always cooperated and abided by the law, demonstrating impeccable conduct as an individual and a taxpayer,” the Associated Press reported. Her public relations team in Spain said she immediately repaid the amount she owed to the country’s tax agency once she was notified. She also deposited an additional 3 million euros in interest. These payments, El País reported, may be considered a mitigating circumstance by prosecutors when it comes to the length of a potential prison sentence.

The tax fraud charges hinge on where Shakira lived from 2012 to 2014. She claims that her tax residency was in the Bahamas until 2015, when she relocated to Barcelona with her partner, FC Barcelona soccer player Gerard Piqué. (The couple, who have two children together, last month announced the end of their 11-year relationship.)

But according to Spanish investigators, Shakira allegedly spent more than 200 days in the country in each of those three years. The Spanish government stipulates that an individual who stays in the country for 184 days or more is considered a resident for tax purposes. These findings, first published by El País in 2020, were based on a reconstruction of Shakira’s schedule, such as public sightings by fans and photographers.

Prosecutors also allege that Shakira bought property in Barcelona in 2012, which later became the family home she shared with Piqué, Reuters reported.

Shakira was among the celebrities whose names appeared in two major troves of leaked financial documents, the Paradise Papers in 2017 and the Pandora Papers in 2021. The investigations connected her to offshore companies in tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands and Malta.

Her public relations team in Spain and the prosecutor’s office in Barcelona did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Mother slams trolls who call her a ‘Monster’ because she lasers her baby’s large birthmark

‘Someone told me to put my son down’

Mum reveals how she has been called a “monster” online since she lasers her baby’s large facial birthmark.

Originally from the Gold Coast, Brooke Atkins is a stay-at-home mom.

With her partner Kewene Wallace, 27, she has two children – a 2-year-old daughter named Amarni and a six-month-old baby boy named Kingsley.

In January, it became apparent Kingsley had a large port wine stain covering half of his face.

It is not uncommon for port-wine stain birthmarks to occur on the face and the eye area, but they can sometimes be associated with glaucoma or Sturge Weber Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder.

Seizures are associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome, while blindness can result from glaucoma.

Kingsley was diagnosed with both, and port wine stains will darken and change over time.

As Brooke explained to NeedToKnow.online: “They can develop a ‘cobblestone’ appearance, with raised bumps, ridges and the risk of vascular blebs, where they dangerously bleed.

“Once a port wine stain gets to this stage, it is often very difficult to treat and laser barely has any affect, as the skin is already far too damaged.”

It was decided by the family that later treatment would be given to Kingsley’s mark, on May 31.

Brooke said: “The only way to treat a port wine stain is through laser treatments and the most effective laser for a it is called a Pulsed Dye Laser.

  • “When he was first born, we were referred to the Queensland Children’s Hospital dermatology and vascular department, where they organise the first treatment and explain in further details why laser would be important.”
  • “The purpose of the laser treatments are not to ‘remove’ the birthmark but instead keep the skin healthy, to prevent any further damage to the area.”

In spite of Kingsley’s family’s amazement at him, TikTok trolls have called Brooke a “monster” for choosing to undergo treatment for her son.

Someone said: “Don’t think I could laser my baby.”

The other person commented: “That birthmark is barely visible, what you’re doing to him is horrible, it’s more for you than him.”

There was also someone who said: “Did you deadass laser a baby.”

“Brainwashed mother making her kid insecure the second he gets out the womb,” commented another user.

“Why is everyone supporting this,” said someone else.

Others have responded with support and encouragement.

There was a comment made: “You’re the mom and you know what is the best for him.”

A second commenter said: “He would’ve still looked as beautiful with or without the birthmark.”

As for the reception she has received online, Brooke said: “Honestly, when I first started reading the negative comments, I sat there for a good half an hour and cried to myself.

“I had a whole heap of mum guilt and it made me question my decision, even though I knew I was doing the right thing, the cruel words still played in my head.

  • “Thankfully for every negative comment, there were 100 positive, so it helped a lot!

“I just wish these people had known about the health issues connected to these types of birthmarks before writing these things, that this wasn’t for cosmetic reasons and that as parents, this was the hardest decision we have had to make.

“That the last six months have been extremely hard on us and reading these comments, actually do hurt – this is the last thing we need, judgment from those who have no understanding around my sons conditions.”

Texas Man Divorced Wife Without her Knowledge by Forging her Signature on the Paperwork

The cops want a man in Texas as he allegedly filed for divorce after forging his wife’s signature on the documents. He somehow managed to get through the legal process and eventually got a divorce from the court.

Paul Nixon is a 51-year-old man from Houston, Texas. He wanted to get rid of his wife, and to do so – he came up with a strange idea. He went to the court with proper documentation that fulfilled all the legal requirements; the man didn’t only forge his wife’s signatures on the papers but also faked a notary’s approval and got the final divorce decree.

He filed the paperwork on February 15, just a day after Valentine’s Day, and received the final decree in April. Meanwhile, Mrs. Nixon remained unaware of the entire happening throughout this period.

A police officer involved in the investigation process told The New York Post.

“We rarely see something like this.”

“Paul Nixon has been charged with aggravated perjury for reportedly lying to the courts about the validity of the forms and information.”

According to Harris County Constable Mark Herman,

“In this particular case, the gentleman decided to go through a divorce, but the only problem is that he left his wife out of the process. And that’s a violation of the law here in Texas.”

The police constable also stated that the woman didn’t know that she had been divorced for at least three months. “The poor woman thought she was still married to this idiot.”

“She was very surprised when she finally got to know about the whole thing. She started finding things showing that he was spending money on jewelry, so she confronted him, and he told her that they were actually divorced.” He said.

According to the Police officials, the woman contacted them when Nixon told her that she was no longer his wife and that he had secretly divorced her.

So, she went to the police and found that her husband went through a three-month-long court procedure to dissolve their marriage. She said she didn’t even have the slightest clue on what he was up to. She also told the officials that they had only been married for just a couple of years.

The police told the news outlet that as per the law, the couple is still NOT divorced. Mrs. Nixon didn’t give her consent, and he used fake signatures in court.

“They are still legally married; the fraudulent divorce papers have been retracted.”

The police also said they could not find Nixon, and he was on the run. But they are looking for him and hopefully find him soon.

“We’ve got teams of officers out looking for him right now, but we have an idea where he’s at. So hopefully, he’ll turn himself in. If not, we’ll catch him. Just a matter of time.”

“He will face up to ten years in prison if convicted.” Said Herman.

Tina Turner’s 2nd husband sacrificed his organ to save her life because he “didn’t want another woman”

We all remember belting out along with the great Tina Turner as she sings ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’. Her powerhouse vocals are stamped in everyone’s memories. The beloved songstress behind countless hits has led an eventful life. And more recently, has had some health troubles…

Tina Turner is a much-beloved superstar known for her powerful vocals. In recent years, the mega-star has slowed down due to health and personal reasons. But her husband, Erwin Bach’s support throughout has been unwavering.

But it wasn’t always like that. Tina Turner gets her last name from her first husband, Ike Turner. Tina met Ike at a nightclub in Manhattan, and since their first meeting, the duo was practically inseparable.

The two first started making music together but soon their relationship became more personal. A few years after their initial meeting, Tina and Ike went to Tijuana, Mexico to exchange wedding vows in 1962.

While their marriage seemed picture-perfect to the outside world, inside it was crumbling. Tina revealed years later, in her book ‘My Love Story’, that the marriage was abusive; both physically and verbally. She talked about Ike’s temperament and how whenever he felt Tina had insulted him in any way, he would become physically abusive.

The abuse went on for years until 1976 when Tina decided she had had enough and separated from Ike. Two years later, she officially divorced him.

After this, the mega-star was bent on staying single. Until she had a chance meeting with Erwin Bach.

Tina met Erwin when he was assigned by his company to pick her up from the airport. Tina was set to perform in Germany when she met her now-husband, who at the time was a 30-year-old music executive for EMI.

Tina later recalled that it was an instant attraction. She said, “He had the prettiest face. You could not miss it. My heart went bu-bum. It means that a soul has met. My hands were shaking. And Roger said to me, ‘Tina, you ride with Erwin,’ and I wanted to go, ‘Yay!’”

She confessed that she had doubts in her mind, telling her that romance never ends well. But she ignored all of that and made sure to get to know Erwin a little better.

Tina offered Erwin to visit her in the U.S., which he agreed to. When the couple met in Tina’s part of the world, she was convinced Erwin was the one. His unpretentious and laid-back nature really appealed to the singer.

The couple is still very much in love today. Erwin said to the media, “It’s love. It’s something we both have for each other. I always refer to it as an electrical charge. I still have it. Even though when I left her two hours ago, I still have that feeling. It’s in my heart. I feel very warm about this.”

On Tina’s 50th birthday, Erwin decided to propose. He was confident about a positive response but was surprised when the songstress declined, citing her bad experience with marriage as the reason.

Tina later said of the proposal, “I said, ‘I don’t have an answer.’ It wasn’t yes, it wasn’t no. Marriage says ownership. I didn’t want that ‘my’ anything, anymore. I had enough of that.”

However, the love between Erwin and Tina did not waver and the two continued on. Erwin’s unwavering commitment finally convinced the singer to try marriage for a second time, as she said yes to his proposal nearly three decades after the initial question.

The couple tied the knot at their luxurious estate in Switzerland. The attendees for the nuptials were high profile and included the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King.

Tina wore a fabulous dress by Giorgio Armani, embellished with Swarovski crystals. Tina was incredibly happy with the ceremony and said that it had gone exactly as she had envisioned.

The couple resides in their beautiful property in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht. The property overlooks Lake Zurich and reportedly gives the feeling of being in a palace.

Since Tina retired from performing in 2009, she has lived in the privacy of her Swiss home full-time. The singer even relinquished her American citizenship when she became a citizen of Switzerland.

Turner says of living in Swizterland that it is amazing and that she is very well recognized in Europe. She said in an interview, “I’m as big as Madonna in Europe. I’m as big as, in some places, the Rolling Stones.”

Just as Tina’s life finally became peaceful, she received some devastating news about her health. In 2016, Tina received the diagnosis that she had kidney cancer. Her options were limited; regular dialysis or a kidney transplant. The latter would give her a chance at a near-normal life but kidney donations were harder to come by.

But luckily for her Erwin stepped in. Her husband made the ultimate sacrifice for his beloved.

“He said he didn’t want another woman, or another life. Then he shocked me. He said he wanted to give me one of his kidneys”, she said.

Tina’s health finally recovered with Erwin’s sacrifice. And when things again started to look up, her life took another sad turn.

Tina Turner lost her firstborn son, Craig Turner. He was Tina’s son from a relationship she had before she met Ike, but Ike Turner had legally adopted him.

Craig Turner was founded dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Tina was heartbroken at the tragic loss of her child. But through it all, Bach remained on Tina’s side as her strength.

Turner shared that the two still very much had the spark alive in their relationship. She posted a picture of the couple embracing, with the caption “Erwin and I have been together for over 30 years and he still writes me love letters – isn’t that romantic?”

Tina Turner and Erwin Bach’s love shows you that true love can really conquer it all. The duo has been steadfastly by one another’s side through thick and thin.
