Pope to parents: It’s OK to fight, just not in front of kids

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis is offering new parents a bit of advice, telling them it’s perfectly normal to fight but just not in front of their children because of the “anguish” it causes.

Francis asked permission Sunday to give his counsel during a ceremony to baptize 27 newborns, an annual tradition that fills the frescoed Sistine Chapel with newborns, their parents and godparents.

Amid coos and wails, Francis told parents that they had taken on an important new job of transmitting the faith to their children — a job he said begins at home.

Francis then offered some off-the-cuff advice.

He says “it’s normal for spouses to fight … it’d be strange if they didn’t. Do it, but so that the children don’t hear it or see it.”

RANDY tech tycoon Jeff Bezos shared bedroom talk with his long-suffering wife to his mistress — as the suspecting spouse began to question him about their affair, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

In another blockbuster text message exchange obtained by The National Enquirer, braggadocios billionaire Bezos confided to his lover Lauren Sanchez, the wife of powerful Hollywood mogul Patrick Whitesell, in September:

MacKenzie dreamt I redecorated the bedroom.

I kept doing it and it got weirder and weirder and weirder.

Until I was sewing stuffed turtles into the comforter.

Wife said: “That’s not hard to interpret.”

The disclosure of his “pillow talk” text shatters Bezos’ insistence that his illicit affair did not torpedo his $144 billion marriage to the woman who helped him start Amazon and said ‘I do’ to 25 years ago, The Enquirer reported.

It also paints a stark picture of MacKenzie as a wife betrayed by her husband.

Turtles in a dream are supposedly an indication of closed personality and suggest a period of slow progress in someone’s life.

“Around the time, MacKenzie also started to use brighter lipsticks and wear tighter dresses to try and win back Jeff’s attention,” a source explained to The Enquirer.

In another text, sent on Sept. 11, the horndog honcho praised mom-of-three Sanchez for advising him to contact rocker Bono of U2!

“Lauren, I’m in love with you. Deep. I know it sounds strange, but even little things like you suggesting I ask for extra training from Bell make my love for you expand and grow,” he wrote.

“Makes me think of when you told me to ask Bono for music permission.

Your energy and ideas and competence and spirit turn me on.”

It is not specifically known what Bezos wanted from Bono, but the U2 front-man and lead guitarist The Edge invested in on-demand Seattle-based trucking firm with Bezos and Bill Gates in May last year.

This chatter also raises serious questions about Bezos’s judgment as the CEO of the most valuable company in the world, The Enquirer reported.

“He makes such big decisions at work and yet is like a teenager with his mistress. What could his board of directors be thinking now?” one industry observer noted.

The full message — during which Bezos tells his lover she was “meant for him” — reads as follows:

I am so full of love for you.

My heart is growing just so it can have room for you.

It’s bigger than it’s ever been and still swelling.

Lauren, I’m in love with you. Deep. I know it sounds strange, but even little things like you suggesting I ask for extra training from Bell make my love for you expand and grow.

Makes me think of when you told me to ask Bono for music permission.

Your energy and ideas and competence and spirit turn me on.

You make me better.

You’re meant for me.

I know it more clearly than I’ve ever known anything.

As Radar previously reported, Bezos sent a close-up of a “below-the-belt” selfie and several shirtless shots to the former TV anchor Sanchez months before the new couple said they started dating.

On June 1, 2018, he sent a loving message that read: “You know what I want? I want to get a little drunk with you tonight. Not falling down. Just a little drunk. I want to talk to you and plan with you. Listen and laugh … I basically WANT TO BE WITH YOU!!! Then I want to fall asleep with you and wake up tomorrow and read the paper with you and have coffee with you.”

A source told The Enquirer the real reason behind Bezos’ public position that he had separated from MacKenzie before he hooked up with Sanchez is to protect his children who were unaware their father had begun another relationship.

But there is a lot at stake in the divorce with Wall Street reacting — albeit mildly — to the scandalous developments at Amazon this week.

With millions of Americans having a vested interest in the e-commerce giant, investors are watching closely the high-flying stock that was down almost one percent Friday.

The New York Post reported:

Theoretically, MacKenzie Bezos could use her half of the 16 percent Amazon stake — which she appears to be entitled to under Washington state law — to wage a noisy shareholder battle against her soon-to-be ex-husband, as well as the company’s board.

Among the potential beefs: Conflict-of-interest concerns raised by a National Enquirer report this week that Bezos hired Lin-Manuel Miranda to direct an Amazon Super Bowl commercial and insisted that his alleged mistress, former “Extra” anchor Lauren Sanchez, be on the production team.

While the possibilities are endless, most experts think such calamities are unlikely. That’s despite the fact that the breakup comes amid shocking reports this week about Jeff Bezos’ reported affair with Sanchez, including allegations that he sent her a slew of steamy texts and pictures.

Police officers reportedly visited R. Kelly’s apartment on Friday after an anonymous caller claimed he was holding two women hostage.

According to editors at TMZ, the Cook County State Attorney’s Office received a tip that Kelly was at his Trump Tower residence in Chicago with the women and he was holding them against their will.

Five officers arrived at the apartment and ordered the singer-songwriter into the other room while they questioned the women.

According to a spokesperson from the Chicago Police Department, both women said they were at the residence voluntarily, and the officers left the apartment.

Editors at TMZ have reported that the women in question were Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, both of whom have had family members claim they have been brainwashed by Kelly.

The 52-year-old was recently featured in the damning docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which chronicled the decades of sexual misconduct accusations made against the singer.

On the Lifetime series, a number of alleged victims claimed the R&B veteran had been using the location to hold girls and young women captive as part of a purported sex cult.

Kelly has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but following the Surviving R. Kelly broadcast, prosecutors in Georgia and Illinois launched criminal investigations into his alleged actions.

Illinois refuses permit for concert to be hosted by R. Kelly

Illinois officials say a concert in Springfield that was to be hosted by R. Kelly cannot take place in the wake of new sexual misconduct allegations against the R&B star.

Illinois Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Denise Albert told the Chicago Tribune that the application for the Spring Break Jam in April was denied Thursday because of security concerns following protests outside Kelly’s Chicago studio this week.

102518-TV-Kelly-Blackface

102518-TV-Kelly-Blackface

NEW YORK — NBC News announced its professional divorce agreement with Megyn Kelly late Friday, ending an association with the former Fox News Channel star whose attempt to become a network morning television star as part of the Today show floundered.

Terms were not disclosed. Kelly was in the second of a three-year contract that reportedly paid her more than US$20 million a year.

She’s been off the air since October after creating a furor by suggesting that it was OK for white people to wear blackface on Halloween, and exit negotiations had dragged for two months over the holidays. Even before the controversial commentary, her future was considered limited at NBC News.

“The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” the network said in a statement Friday night.

NBC says she’ll be replaced in the third hour of the Today show by anchors Craig Melvin, Al Roker, Dylan Dreyer and Sheinelle Jones.

Her tenure was also a failure for NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack, who lured her from Fox News Channel with the type of big-money contract that was once standard in television news but now is less so with financial constrictions and less viewership. In a sense, Kelly was caught in a no-woman’s land: some at NBC were suspicious of her because of the Fox News background, while her former audience at Fox resented her for tough questioning of Donald Trump on the presidential campaign trail.

While at Fox, her accusations of unwanted sexual advances by the network’s late chief executive, Roger Ailes, helped lead to his firing.

She made news at NBC when interviewing women who accused Trump of inappropriate behaviour and s poke with accusers of Harvey Weinstein, Bill O’Reilly, Roy Moore and others, as well as women who say they were harassed on Capitol Hill. The episode with Trump accusers had more than 2.9 million viewers, one of her biggest audiences on the network.

Time magazine, which honoured “The Silence Breakers” as its Person of the Year in 2017, cited Kelly as the group’s leader in the entertainment field.

But tough segments on accusations against former NBC anchor Matt Lauer didn’t win her friends internally, as did her public call for Lack to appoint outside investigators to look into why the network didn’t air Ronan Farrow’s stories about Harvey Weinstein and allowed Farrow to take his story to The New Yorker.

When those stories began to fade, Kelly had trouble attracting an audience in the soft-focus world of morning television. She also briefly hosted an evening newsmagazine that didn’t catch on with viewers.

Kelly made a tearful apology to viewers following her blackface comments, but it proved to be her last appearance on NBC News.

“What is racist?” she said on the show. “Truly, you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as a character.”

Critics accused her of ignoring the ugly history of minstrel shows and movies in which whites applied blackface to mock blacks.

It’s not immediately clear what’s next for Kelly. NBC would not comment Friday on whether the separation agreement allows her to write about her experiences at the network.

There’s no non-compete clause, meaning Kelly is free to seek other television work if she wants to.
