Paris Jackson Pregnant and Engaged at 16? Late MJ's Daughter Spotted With Baby Bump

Posted in: , ,

The pregnancy rumors involving Paris Jackson went viral after fans noted that Michael Jackson's only daughter was spotted carrying a baby bump and toasting with water.

Tabloids and entertainment websites had picked up this rumor, reporting just days after the 16-year-old and her unnamed boyfriend were allegedly shopping around for engagement rings.

The Daily Star first broke out the news, saying that fans claimed to notice a tummy bulge hidden under a loose top from the late King of Pop's teen daughter.

"I saw her at dinner and she twice made a toast drinking water instead of wine. That and the prominent stomach bulge got people talking. It's highly unusual to toast with anything but a full glass of wine," a source told the online tabloid.

The Jackson family spokesperson was immediately contacted to verify the report, but refused to comment and simply said, "I do not comment on her personal life."

Dr. Ada Igonoh was one of the attending doctors at First Consultants Hospital and had seen to Patrick Sawyer while being monitored and overseen by Dr Ameyo Adedovoh, her consultant.

On the night of Sunday July 20, 2014, Patrick Sawyer was wheeled into the Emergency Room at First Consultants Medical Centre, Obalende, Lagos, with complaints of fever and body weakness. The male doctor on call admitted him as a case of malaria and took a full history. Knowing that Mr. Sawyer had recently arrived from Liberia, the doctor asked if he had been in contact with an Ebola patient in the last couple of weeks, and Mr. Sawyer denied any such contact.

He also denied attending any funeral ceremony recently. Blood samples were taken for full blood count, malaria parasites, liver function test and other baseline investigations. He was admitted into a private room and started on antimalarial drugs and analgesics. That night, the full blood count result came back as normal and not indicative of infection.

Tolu Olubunmi, Undocumented Nigerian Immigrant in the US Shares Her Story

Posted in: , ,

Nigerian immigrant Tolu Olubunmi, 31, was among several other guests invited last year by President Barack Obama to the White House as he highlighted immigration reform.

Tolu was brought to the United States by her parents when she was 14, and has never been able to document her stay here in America since then.

Tolu Olubunmi came with the hopes of immigrating legally, but 17 years later, she is an undocumented immigrant living in the U.S. She is unable to use her chemical engineering degree in the workplace or even leave the country for fear of being banned from re-entry.

“I am not used to the limbo. I am not used to stress. I am not used to sharing my story. I am not a public person at all, but the courageous attitudes of the dreamers I’ve gotten to work with over the years and the fact that they were so willing to lay everything on the line - it really spurred me on. Plus, I saw the impertinence of adding my voice as an African.”
