Man City player charged with rape ‘thought VP wing for vulnerable prisoners was a VIP wing’

The footballer will be appearing at Chester crown court on September 10th

Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy has reportedly been having a hard time behind bars after believing he would be held in a ‘VIP’ wing. 

The twenty-seven-year-old left back, who joined the club in 2017, was transported to the notorious HMP Altcourse in Liverpool on Friday after appearing in court charged with four counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

French national Mendy is alleged to have attacked three different women, including one under the age of eighteen, at his home in Prestbury over ten months.

But today, new reports are claiming that the disgraced player suffered a devastating misunderstanding when arriving at the Category B jail in Liverpool; upon arrival, he was told he was going to be put on the VP wing, according to The Sun.

VP wings, found in every prison across the UK, keep vulnerable prisoners and sex offender suspects away from the main prison population for their own safety.

However, Mendy allegedly misunderstood prison staff and thought he was going to the ‘VIP wing’ instead. A source said: “When Mendy arrived staff explained he was going to be kept on the VP wing for his own safety.

“But perhaps because he is French and his English isn’t great, he misunderstood what they had said and thought he was being taken to a VIP wing for celebrities.

“He had a rude awakening when he saw the cell and realised who he was going to be mixing with. He wasn’t happy and it was a very sobering experience for him.”

Last week, Manchester City released a statement on Mendy’s suspension which read: “Manchester City can confirm that following his being charged by police today, Benjamin Mendy has been suspended pending an investigation.

“The matter is subject to a legal process and the Club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete.”

Mendy is due to appear at Chester crown court on September 10th.

Piers Morgan and TikToker who went in stranger’s homes get into heated argument live on air

‘It was a trend. I just done it for a trend’

Piers Morgan and a TikTok prankster got into a heated argument during an interview live on air.

The TikToker known as ‘Mizzy’ called Piers Morgan a ‘moron’ during the bizarre and heated interview on the Piers Morgan Uncensored show, on Wednesday May 14th — just hours after his sentencing.

Mizzy — real name Bacari-Bronze O’Garro — and Morgan got into a spat while live in the studio. As the pair continued to interrupt each other throughout, Morgan listed the numerous extreme ‘moronic’ pranks O’Garro has carried out.

O’Garro is the person behind a series of notorious viral videos including stealing a woman’s dog, ripping up library books and jumping into strangers’ cars.

The 18-year-old was also said to have put a family ‘at risk’ by walking into their home pretending he was trying to find a study group, a court heard. 

When Morgan asked why he would choose to cause ‘so much alarm and distress to so many people’, O’Garro replied: “This whole public uproar just makes me laugh because people are getting hurt over something that didn’t happen to them and that’s how I see it as.”

Morgan went on: “You go up and take a dog from an elderly woman, you leapfrog over the top of an orthodox Jewish man standing at the side of the road minding his business.

“You go up to women in the street and say, ‘do you want to die?’”

At one point the Talk TV presenter then asked: “A lot of the stuff that you do could have consequences far more serious but you don’t care do you, as long as you get a laugh?”

O’Garro replied: “Of course I care… I have remorse.” On why he pulled the pranks for social media, he said: “It was a trend. I just done it for a trend.” He then said he is his ‘own person’ and ‘I am legally an adult now so I can do what I want’. 

The pair called each other ‘idiots’, and Morgan ended the interview by saying: “You’re just a complete moron.” Adding: “For the record, he wasn’t paid for this.”

O’Garro appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (May 24th) and admitted failing to comply with a community protection notice. He was fined £200 and will have to pay an £80 surcharge with £85 in prosecution costs.

The teenager, from Hackney, east London, was also issued with a criminal behaviour order, for a period of two years, which means he can never upload a video again without the permission of all those appearing in it.

The CBO also prohibits him from ‘trespassing into any private property, including residential homes, business properties, school and retail outlets’, and ‘attending Westfield Stratford City.’

Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway said: “The CBO issued is a powerful measure designed to prevent behaviour which has caused alarm and distress to our communities.

“If the conditions are breached, at any point over the two year period, a custodial sentence can result.”

ITV & GB News

ITV has issued a fresh statement on Phillip Schofield’s exit from This Morning after Eamonn Holmes’ comments on GB News.

The statement comes after former star Eamonn Holmes reportedly claimed the presenter ‘was sacked’. Chatting on Monday on his GB News show, Eamonn said: “Oh please, let’s just stop this. He was sacked.”

Holmes said Holly was ‘false’ and a ‘backstabber’. He went on: “She made her name on the back of him. Excuse me.

“If she has her own professional integrity, why isn’t she coming out in public and saying I have my own professional integrity, he’s done something that will reflect badly on me but she again is being as false as he is and nobody is talking about the elephant in the room.”

GB News

In a short statement to Huffington Post, ITV stepped in to dismiss Eamonn’s claims. It read: “Phillip Schofield’s decision to step down from This Morning was (as his statement made clear) a decision agreed between Phillip and ITV.”

Schofield quit This Morning last weekend after more than 20 years following a reported feud with co-star Holly Willoughby.

The presenter ‘stepped back’ with ‘immediate effect’ and in a statement said the programme had ‘become the story’ and that he wanted to ‘do what I can to protect the show that I love’.

The move came after rumours were rife that he and Holly Willoughby were ‘barely speaking’ behind the scenes amid a ‘rift’ between the pair.

Issuing a statement on Saturday, following weeks of speculation that he and Holly weren’t getting along, Phillip wrote on his Instagram: “I have always been proud to cover fascinating stories on This Morning, but recently, This Morning itself has become the story.

“Throughout my career in TV — including the very difficult last few days — I have always done my best to be honourable and kind.

“I understand ITV has decided the current situation can’t go on and I want to do what I can to protect the show I love.

“So I have agreed to step down from This Morning with immediate effect, in the hope that the show can move forward to a bright future.

@schofe / Instagram

I’d like to thank everyone what has supported me – especially This Morning’s amazing viewers – and I’ll see you all for the Soap Awards next month.”

Holly, 42 also, issued a statement in response, sharing to her Instagram, she wrote: “Hi everyone…

“It’s been over 13 great years presenting This Morning with Phil and I want to take this opportunity to thank him for all of his knowledge, his experience and his humour.

“The sofa won’t feel the same without him.”
