Nicknamed the “King of Spin,” Clifford was serving an eight-year prison term after his 2014 conviction for a series of indecent assaults on teenage girls, CNN reported.

Clifford was the first person to be convicted in an investigation into sex abuse allegations against late British TV host Jimmy Savile.

Clifford denied 11 accusations of sex abuse dating from 1966 to 1985, calling his arrest and prosecution “a nightmare.” 

“As with all deaths in custody there will be an investigation by the independent Prisons and Probation Ombudsman. Our condolences are with Mr. Clifford's family at this difficult time,” the ministry said in a statement. The cause of Clifford's death was “not self-inflicted” the statement said.

Can you believe Donny Osmond is 60 years old? Neither can the baker who made his cake, apparently.

The singer rang in his 60th birthday Saturday with a little help from sister Marie and a cake that appears to indicate he’s actually turning 90 years old due to a hilarious mishap.

“Right side up and upside down no matter how I look at his cake…looks like my bro @donnyosmond turns 90 today!” Marie wrote on Instagram with a nostalgic slideshow of photos. “Glad he’s spending this landmark birthday month with his sweet❤️vacationing!”

The slideshow features recent photos of the superstar siblings as well as many pictures from over the course of their lives.

The iconic brother-sister duo opened their show on the Las Vegas Strip back in September 2008, and what was supposed to only be a 6-month run is about to turn into a 10-year streak as their popular show has been extended through the end of next year, the Los Angeles Times reported. The pair, who started as a variety show back in the 1970s, continues to entertain the audiences with both their new and old songs, including hits such as “I’m Leavin’ It (All) Up to You,” “Paper Roses” and “Puppy Love.”

“We’re headed into our 10th year,” Donny Osmond said in a news release. “Marie and I are constantly changing our show. That’s probably why we’re fortunate enough to enjoy such longevity.”

Beyonce spotted shopping at Target, gets Hive buzzing

Stars, they’re just like us and make Target runs -- even Beyonce.

The superstar singer, wife and mother of three was photographed by another shopper at a California Target Thursday.

The OCR reported that Beyonce was seen with her oldest daughter, Blue Ivy, 5, at a Target in San Clemente, California. Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, was also seen, as well as a bodyguard who was nearby.

The photos were quickly posted on Twitter and sent Beyonce’s fans, the BeyHive, into a frenzy.

Dressed in a long-sleeve black shirt and wide-leg pants with sunglasses and a half-up, half-down topknot hairdo, the singer was photographed in the toys aisle and among kids and baby clothes.

In June, Beyonce and her husband, rapper JAY-Z, welcomed twins Sir and Rumi, so it’s possible she was doing some Christmas shopping for her family.

Ex radio DJ David Mueller says he paid Taylor Swift court-ordered $1

David Mueller, the former DJ who was ordered to pay Taylor Swift a symbolic $1 after losing a groping lawsuit he filed against her, says Swift’s money is in the mail.

Swift and her mother, Andrea Swift, and the singer’s radio handler Frank Bell, were sued by Mueller when he lost his KYGO-FM job after allegations emerged that Mueller groped Swift during a 2013 meet-and-greet photo op in Denver.

In August, a judge threw out Mueller’s suit and ordered Mueller to pay Swift a symbolic $1.

Mueller told The Associated Press that he sent the singer a Sacagawea coin last week. The money was meant as a dig at the singer in response to Swift’s team calling the ruling a victory for women.

“I mean, if this is all about women’s rights…It’s a little poke at them, a little bit,” he told The AP in August after the trial. “I mean, I think they made this into a publicity stunt, and this is my life.”

Mueller provided The AP a letter that showed the payment was sent Nov. 28.

Swift, who was named one of the Silence Breakers, TIME’s Person of the Year, spoke to the magazine about her Aug. 10 testimony in the suit. At the time of the interview, she said she hadn’t received the payment from Mueller.

“When the jury found in my favor, the man who sexually assaulted me was court-ordered to give me a symbolic $1,” Swift said. “To this day, he has not paid me that dollar, and I think that act of defiance is symbolic in itself.”

Swift also had advice for her fans after the experience.

“My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you,” Swift told Time. “You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes or 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after he or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you.”

Colin Kaepernick was this year’s recipient of Sports Illustrated’s Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, which he accepted in person from surprise presenter Beyoncé on Tuesday night.

Prior to the ceremony, Sports Illustrated writer Michael Rosenberg praised Kaepernick for making “his truth known” with his controversial national anthem protests. Explaining the award, Rosenberg wrote, “Each year, SI and the Ali family honor a figure who embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world.”

This sentiment was reflected in the short introductory speech given by Beyoncé, who said the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback “took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better.”

“With or without the NFL’s platform, I will continue to work for the people, because my platform is the people,” Kaepernick said.

Several hours later, political commentator Tomi Lahren weighed in on the award with a controversial tweet.

“Police-hating Beyoncé presents police and America-hating Kappy with a ‘legacy’ award. This is how far we’ve fallen. Wow,” she wrote.

Both Kaepernick and Beyoncé have said they neither hate the military nor the police, both praising members of the respective institutions.

Lahren has been a vocal critic of Kaepernick's protests for more than a year.

Melania Trump, Karen Pence stop at Whataburger, treat press to french fries

First lady Melania Trump, along with second lady Karen Pence, traveled to Texas on Wednesday to visit with first responders and check on Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. And if there’s anything politicians (or in this case, politicians’ spouses) love to do when they’re on a visit, it’s make a stop at a purveyor of local cuisine. Trump and Pence flew through Corpus Christi, which means Whataburger.

According to social media reports (including tweets from reporters along for the trip, as well as a White House official), the first and second lady stopped by the venerable Texas burger chain and walked out with at least some of those famous fries. The rest of their order is unknown (so far), but the tweets about the pit stop are quite a journey.

Reporters in the press pool said the first and second lady treated them to fries.

Officials in Texas approved. The orange and the white, as ever, proved to be a unifying force.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, Trump and Pence stopped at the Whataburger at 602 Padre Island Drive.
