Kylie Jenner slammed for ‘obscene wealth’ after flaunting $60,000 outfit during quarantine – The Sun

KYLIE Jenner has been slammed by fans for flaunting her “obscene wealth” after she posted a quarantine picture in an outfit that costs upwards of $60,000.

The 22-year-old beauty billionaire stunned in the sexy shot that showed off her cleavage and toned stomach – but it’s the price tags of her ensemble that have people outraged.


The KUWTK star posted the skin-baring Instagram on Monday, but she began to receive backlash after a fan account broke down the costly clothing.

Kylie’s jeans alone are reportedly worth $15,000 alone however, the Chrome Hearts cross patch orange denim pair is not currently available for purchase.

The pricey pants are up for resale on various websites that asked more than $8,600 for the bottoms.

She traded a shirt for a black buckled bikini set from designer 1017 ALYX 9SM that originally cost $430.



However, the most expensive item she wore were the 18 karat white gold Harry Kotlar earrings that retail for $50,570.

Kylie – who took the thirst trap while on lockdown in her LA mansion due to the pandemic – was dragged for the luxury goods.

One follower fired off: “Spending $15,000 on a pair of jeans does not make anyone smarter, beautiful or generous – donate the money to charity – it is more important to give & help others!”

“Have you seen the mess on the streets of LA and San Fransisco? 50,000 dollar stud earrings and 15,000 dollar jeans and a 250 dollar bra top? Your wealth is obscene,” another Instagram user wrote.



One critic said: “There is not a single pair of pants worth $15,000… if you paid this much you have more money than sense.”

“Her earrings are worth a mortgage on a house and her pants are worth someone’s entire live savings oof,” a fan pointed out.

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul is no stranger to dropping big dollars after she splashed out $15 million on a vacant lot earlier this month.

She purchased the land from an unknown woman, who in 2018 purchased it from Miley Cyrus.

According to Variety, property records show it was described as a “spectacular five-acre lot” and is “one of the largest in all of Hidden Hills.”


The sale of the land also included permitted plans for an "18,000 sq. ft. monster mansion with a 12-car garage, guesthouse, barn, guard shack for full-time security detail, sports court and a pool.”

Just days before, the youngest Jenner sister dropped $36.5 on a stunning Holmby Hills mansion.

Kylie is also the owner of a $13.5 million Beverly Hills mansion and a second vacant piece of land in the Palm Desert resort community of La Quinta.

She spends most of her time, however, at her a $12 million mansion in Hidden Hills, which she purchased in 2016 and which was recently featured in Architectural Digest.

Can I travel to Portugal for my summer holiday? Air bridge plans and latest advice

PORTUGAL could be the first country Brits travel to this summer as plans for air bridges from the UK are in discussion.

The country has kept coronavirus cases lower than other nearby countries, such as Spain or Italy.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

Portugal has 31,292 confirmed cases with 1,356 deaths – significantly lower than neighbouring countries and the UK.

Here is everything you need to know about travelling to Portugal this year.

Can I go to Portugal for my summer holiday this year?

Lisbon has announced it is "open for business" and will start accepting international visitors again from next Saturday.

Yet Brits cannot currently travel to Portugal, with the UK government advising against all but essential travel.

This is not expected to be lifted any time soon, so booking a holiday during July and August is a risk.

Will I need to quarantine for 14 days?

Tourists will not have to quarantine when entering the country.

Madeira and the Azores will only allow visitors who have tested negative for coronavirus within the last 72 hours.

Mainland Portugal is not currently enforcing quarantines upon landing.

However, the UK will be introducing a quarantine for Brits returning to the country from June 8.

The discussion of air bridges – an agreement to allow tourists to enter the country by avoiding quarantine restrictions – is being debated between the UK and Portugal.

If agreed, it would be the first air bridge between European countries.

It would allow British holidaymakers to go abroad and return to the UK without having to quarantine for a fortnight when they return.

Talks between the two sides are in an “initial phase”, according to The Times.

These new measures are hoping to be in place by July but this is yet to be confirmed.

Are there flights from the UK to Portugal?

Ryanair has been running limited flights to Portugal although these are primarily for stranded tourists, while Wizz Air resumed limited flights from the UK in May.

Airlines have announced plans to resume scheduled flights from next month.

EasyJet is launching a limited schedule from June 15, while Ryanair hopes to resume 1,000 daily flights from July 1, including to destinations in Portugal.

British Airways, TUI and Jet2 all hope to resume by the summer as well, although this depends on flight restrictions,

Are restaurants and hotels open in Portugal?

More than a third of hotels in the Algarve have opened their doors already, with 75 per cent expected to be open by next month, along with beaches.

Restaurants and cafes are also open, but with strict social distancing guidelines.

Cinemas and theatres are to open from June 1, but there are currently no dates for the opening of bars and clubs.

Mum asks for help after son, two, lathers 'ultra dark' fake tan instead of soap

A mum was amused when her toddler decided to use fake tan all over himself thinking it was soap – but quickly realised she’d need help to get his skin back to its normal tone.

Alana Reed’s son Bailey from East Melbourne, ran to his mum to proudly show off that he was ‘all clean’.

But instead of using soap, he had used an ‘ultra dark’ tan on himself, smearing the product all over his face and body.

At first Alana, 30, thought Bailey had been running around and got himself muddy but after trying to wash it off, noticed that the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark fake tan had been in the bathroom.

She found the situation funny at first but soon became desperate to find a solution to take off the colouring.

Posting on Facebook page Mums Who Clean, Alana asked if anybody had any suggestions on how she could take it off.

The post received thousands of comments with loads of home remedy suggestions.

Unfortunately though, none of them worked. Bailey ended up getting darker after a few days as the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark develops over time.

On the Facebook page, Alana wrote: ‘Does anybody have any ideas for getting ultra dark tan off a toddler’s face, hands and arms? He used half the bottle to “clean himself” and lemon and baby oil are making it worse. Please help.’

One of the suggestions was: ‘Moisturise with baby oil two or three times about 30 minutes apart. Wait one hour after the last application and then run a warm bath and gently exfoliate the areas.’

Another said: ‘Bondi Sands actually has a tan eraser so that might be worth a try.’


‘I’ve found toothpaste and then dishwashing liquid good for removing food colouring. Try it on his hand. Best of luck. Maybe use makeup concealer on his face until it wears off?’ suggested another.

Others recommended bicarbonate of soda, lemon juice, and a bath filled with baking powder.

But Alana said she didn’t want to put harsh chemicals on the toddler.

If no other remedies work, Bailey might just have to wait five to seven days for the tan to naturally clear after plenty of washes.

Netflix ‘ready for season 2 of Tiger King’ with hundreds of hours of unused footage, claims Joe Exotic’s right hand man – The Sun

NETFLIX are ready to make a new set of Tiger King episodes using “hundreds of hours” of unseen footage according to one of the show’s top stars.

John Reinke –  controversial zoo owner Joe Exotic’s right hand man in the streaming giant’s hit true crime documentary series – claims three more episodes are in the pipeline.

And he says Netflix can also draw on footage that was shot by film crews while he worked alongside the disgraced big cat keeper at his GW Zoo in Oklahoma.

Reinke, 54, said: “There’s so much more content that needs to be in there and I know Netflix have footage for two or three more episodes. The Network said they are going to be in touch with me about it.

“There’s still a bunch of other footage out there. Joe had a bunch of directors through the zoo at various points and they took the footage with them.

“They filmed everything and took what they had on video with them. That footage is also likely to surface at some point.”

But Reinke, who lost both his legs after a zipline accident in 1994, believes Netflix are in a race against time if they are to get the new episodes online ahead of planned big budget movie projects based on the Tiger King’s life story.

A low budget comedy Barbie & Kendra Save The Tiger King has already been released. A big budget film is also in the works with Matthew McConaughey tipped to play Reinke opposite Nicolas Cage as Exotic.

“I think there’s two or three people trying to get different movies out. Full Moon Features has their comedy called Barbie & Kendra Save the Tiger King that is going to keep things stirred up," he added.

“It’s a little comedy about these girls who heard the story and decide to help the Tiger King out.

What's on Netflix and Amazon Prime?

Looking for a new Netflix series to binge or the best movies to watch on Amazon Prime? We have you covered…

  • New on Netflix: The best series and films released every day
  • The best movies on Netflix to watch right now
  • The best series to watch on Netflix

“And there’s talk of Matthew McConaughey playing me in a bigger budget film with Nicolas Cage playing Joe, the Tiger King.

“McConaughey’s a good actor and I really think he could play me really well. I like the guy.

“He’s real subtle, real nice and I just think he’d be a good me.

“But I think David Spade would be a good Joe Exotic because he has the demeanour and sports a mullet real good.

“I’ve got mixed feelings about that because there is a rumour Nicolas Cage is going to play him.”

Fans of the Tiger King series watched Exotic get 22 years over a murder for hire plot to kill his rival, big cat conservationist Carole Baskin.

Viewers also watched Exotic run for President of the United States and enjoy a three-way same sex marriage. Reinke says Exotic always had a harem of young men at his disposal.

Reinke, who fell 55ft feet in the accident that broke his back and hip punctured his colon, became one of the favourite subjects in the documentary thanks to his tattooed artificial legs. He has since left the zoo and works as a mechanic.

 

Reinke said: "Joe knew up front I was straight and I was married. He didn’t want me.

“First of all I’m too old. He always liked them younger.

“He kept them around 19 or 20 years old, but he always had puppies coming in all the time.

“Puppies is what we called the young boys. He was always puppy shopping.”

Reinke claims new Netflix episodes will likely coincide with more drama and further arrests being made.

“There’s quite a lot of lives been turned upside down and I really don’t think it’s over yet,” he said. “There’s going to be more lives turned upside down out of this deal.

“I don’t think the FBI are done investigating everything and everybody involved in this Tiger King show.

"There’s more people probably going to go down for some stuff.”

Tiger King is available to stream on Netflix now.

£150k boost for Mail Force as Sky TV boss helps PPE charity

£150k boost for Mail Force as Sky TV boss helps PPE charity fund soar to £8.9million

  • Jeremy Darroch has donated £50,000 of his own cash while the rest came from the broadcaster
  • Contribution means Mail Force has raised £8.9m since the charity was launched four weeks ago
  • Mail Force was created by the Mail and its partners to help tackle the PPE shortage
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

The boss of Sky has pledged £150,000 for the Mail Force campaign to supply healthcare workers with protective gear after several of his colleagues became seriously ill with coronavirus.

Jeremy Darroch has donated £50,000 of his own cash while £100,000 has come from the broadcaster.

The generous contribution means Mail Force has raised £8.9million since the charity was launched four weeks ago. Mr Darroch, 57, who has run Sky since 2007, said the campaign to make sure NHS and care staff have enough personal protective equipment (PPE) to treat patients safely is of ‘critical importance’.

He added: ‘People at Sky have got Covid-19 and some of them are really very poorly so I’ve seen what can happen when it goes from an unpleasant illness to a very serious illness.

Jeremy Darroch (middle) has donated £50,000 of his own cash while £100,000 has come from the broadcaster. Pictured with Sky presenters Sarah-Jane Mee and Natalie Pinkham 

‘And when that happens you are reminded about how brilliant the NHS are and what doctors do – what sacrifices they make and literally how they fight for people’s lives.’

Mr Darroch said it is easy to take front line healthcare workers for granted because everyone has ‘grown up with the NHS’. He believes that the pandemic has reminded the country of their great work.

Last month Mr Darroch, who earns more than £1million a year in basic pay, announced he would donate at least six months of his salary to charities helping people affected by the pandemic.

This now includes Mail Force, which was created by the Mail and its partners to help tackle the PPE shortage. He stressed: ‘Mail Force is a great initiative and one that is very much needed. We were keen to support it, both at a corporate level and a personal one. I think it’s great that Mail Force has taken the lead and it means others can just plug in and help do their bit to make this successful.

‘This is pretty significant. It’s getting money to an organisation which has the scale to make sure it gets to the right places.’

Mr Darroch added: ‘This caught my eye because of its focus – PPE has been so critically important, and that’s why I wanted to do it. This is a brilliant way to be able to add a bit from me as well. I’m really happy about it. I think, with these things, if everybody can do their bit then we can get through this.’ His first charitable donation during the crisis was £100,000 to the National Emergencies Trust.

PPE is delivered to Bank House Residential Care home in Newport, Shropshire. Pictured from left to right: Kirsten Buck, Nikki Rose, Jane Broom, Kate Brennan, Callum Wapstra, Shirley Richards and Dep. Manager Helen Millinder

It was founded in 2017 after the Grenfell Tower fire, which killed 72 people, and terror attacks in London and Manchester. It works with charities to raise and distribute funds. Northumberland-born Mr Darroch, who has three children with his wife Rachel, has also donated to the Community Foundation For Surrey, where he lives.

It is part of a network of 46 community foundations which help disadvantaged people. Almost 50,000 Daily Mail readers have now given more than £2.5million to Mail Force.

Your continuing support, along with pledges from philanthropists and corporate partners, helped the fund soar to the £8.9million mark last night.

Supporters include the Duchess of Cornwall, Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Michael Caine and Dame Vera Lynn while former prime ministers Sir John Major and Gordon Brown have also backed the initiative.

Last week lorries carrying 100,000 gowns arrived from Turkey after the charity sourced PPE from a factory near Istanbul. The gowns were quality checked by the Health and Safety Executive and delivered to the NHS. The charity previously chartered a jumbo jet packed with 20 tons of PPE from Shanghai to London. The £1million cargo included 50,000 medical coveralls and 100,000 masks.

And Mail Force has placed an initial order for 1.5million aprons from British firm Issa Group, which had them made in a former cotton mill in Blackburn.

These are being channelled into the main NHS distribution network over the next two weeks.

HERE’S HOW TO DONATE 

Mail Force Charity has been launched with one aim to help support NHS staff, volunteers and care workers fight back against Covid-1 in the UK.

Mail Force is a separate charity established and supported by the Daily Mail and General Trust. 

The money raised will fund essential equipment required by the NHS and care workers. 

This equipment is vital in protecting the heroic staff whilst they perform their fantastic work in helping the UK overcome this pandemic.

If we raise more money than is needed for vital Covid-1 equipment, we will apply all funds to support the work of the NHS in other ways.

William Haggas hoping for rain ahead of Royal Ascot for Addeybb while Oaks hope Born With Pride is Kempton bound

TRAINER William Haggas is praying for rain ahead of Royal Ascot.

His Addeybb – now a Group 1 winner – could head to the Prince of Wales's if conditions suit, after winning the Wolferton Stakes last season at the same fixture.

Haggas said: "He's in good form and if we have a few thunderstorms at Ascot he might go for the Prince of Wales's.

"The problem is, I've spoken to one of my owners who is a grown-up farmer and spends a lot of time studying the weather, or getting someone to study the weather, and he said the next appreciable rain will be in September.

"He said wheat prices are going up daily and that's the sign it's going to be a drought."

Meanwhile Oaks prospect Born With Pride will start out at Kempton in the first week of the sports comeback.

 

The daughter of Born To Sea has only Quadrilateral ahead of her with most firms in the ante-post market on the Investec-sponsored Oaks, after a 20-1 success in the Listed Montrose Fillies' Stakes on her only juvenile start in November.

The Epsom showpiece is scheduled for July 4 this year and, should racing restart as hoped next week, Haggas has pencilled in his filly – who runs in the colours made famous by Sea The Stars – for the 10-furlong Classic Trial on June 3.

He told Racing TV's Luck On Sunday programme: "She's always shown a bit at home and is a very well-bred filly and a strong galloper. There's lots of stamina on the dam's side and she looked good that day.

"There were two divisions of a seven-furlong maiden that day and I would have run her in one of those, but we had three in each division and we thought she was possibly the one that would enjoy a mile more than the others, so she ran in the Montrose.

"She did nothing wrong that day."

Arsenal tipped for Odsonne Edouard transfer after Thierry Henry reveals he’s a fan of the Celtic striker – The Sun

ARSENAL legend Thierry Henry has revealed he is a huge fan of Gunners transfer target Odsonne Edouard.

The 22-year-old striker had scored 28 goals for Celtic this campaign before the season was suspended and then cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He and his Hoops team-mates were 13 points clear of rivals Rangers, leading Celtic to be awarded the title by the SFA.

But the Scottish champions look like they will face a huge task to keep hold of the French star after his 62 goals in 126 appearances since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.

Arsenal are believed to be leading the chase for the hotshot as they eye replacements for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.

And Scotland and Rangers icon Ally McCoist has now let slip Arsenal’s all-time top scorer is a big fan.

He told talkSPORT: “I spoke to Thierry Henry at the Liverpool vs Leicester City game and he really rates Edouard.

“He was saying in France in particular [he is highly regarded] and he personally really, really thinks he’s got a chance of going right to the top.”

Henry is not the only ex-Premier League ace to predict big things for Edouard, with Chris Sutton telling the Daily Record the “sensational” striker could emulate Virgil van Dijk by leaving Celtic to flourish in England.

Clap for Carers should END next week says woman who came up with idea – over fears it is becoming ‘politicised’ – The Sun

NEXT week’s Clap for Carers should be the last to stop it becoming "politicised" and "negative" – says the woman who thought it up.

Yoga teacher Annemarie Plas said it is best to finish when at its peak.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates



The Dutchwoman, from South London, said she was “overwhelmed” by the support shown.

But she added: “I think it’s good to have the last of the series next Thursday, because to have the most impact I think it is good to stop it at its peak.

“Without getting too political, I share some of the opinions that some people have about it becoming politicised.

"I think the narrative is starting to change and I don't want the clap to be negative."

Millions of people across the country have regularly paused to applaud frontline NHS workers and carers.

Next Thursday’s will be the 10th clap, started as the UK went into lockdown in March. Royals, the PM and celebs have all joined in.

Annemarie wants to bring back the clap in 2021 to mark a year since the outbreak.

She said: “Stopping clapping doesn’t mean we are not still appreciating them. Some people will still want to carry on, so they should.”

Jessa Duggar: Mom-Shamed For Allowing Kids to Use HUGE Knives!

At this point, Jessa Duggar is sadly accustomed to being mom-shamed.

It’s something she deals with on a very regular basis, and amazingly, it seems her commenters have become even more unforgiving in recent weeks.

Jessa can’t even give her kids a quarantine haircut without a parade of trolls lining up to tell her she’s doing it wrong.

So it should come as no surprise that fans took issue with Jessa’s latest cooking video, in which two of her kids use a pretty sizable chef’s knife while helping her prepare chicken noodle soup.

The objection is that Henry is only 4, and Spurgeon is 3, and … well, that’s a damn big knife.

“Jessa is a complete fool. She also let Henry use the chef’s knife,” wrote one commenter on Facebook.

“This is just ignorant. Henry is only three and still wears a diaper.”

“This is very dangerous. Spurgeon is way too young to be using a knife to cut vegetables. What in the world was Jessa thinking?” another user remarked.

“Fricking dumbass. Kids should not be touching a sharp knife,” a third chimed in.

You get the idea.

This is one of those cases where there are rational arguments to be made on both sides.

Yes, that’s a very big knife for a very young child, but at the same time, Jessa is right there, and she’s clearly supervising carefully.

The Duggars pride themselves on taking a “free range” approach to child-rearing when their kids are very young — allowing them to sustain minor injuries in the name of making their own mistakes.

However, they do a complete 180 once the the kids reach their teen years, imposing all sorts of oppressive “courtship rules” on them.

Seems sorta backwards as the consequences of a toddler running around a pool have the potential to be much more disastrous than anything that might happen on an unchaperoned date between two consenting young adults, but what do we know?

As usual, we won’t necessarily defend Jessa’s actions, but we will defend her right to do something stupid without 3,000 people piling on and telling her how stupid it is.

Something like 1 to 2,000 people would be sufficient.
