Meghan Markle's Suits on-screen husband, Patrick Adams, blasts royal family and the British media as he defends the Duchess of Sussex


Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle's Suits co-star, Patrick J. Adams has slammed the royal family and the British media for tormenting the Duchess of Sussex.


In a series of tweets, Patrick J. Adams, who starred alongside Markle for several seasons on the legal drama Suits, defended the former actress from the new bullying allegations that have emerged against her from Buckingham Palace.


He sang Meghan's praise then called the royal family "archaic and toxic."


He also questioned the timing of the bullying claims made against Meghan by the Palace.


Buckingham Palace said Wednesday, March 3, that it would investigate allegations that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, bullied several staff members after a British media report cited unnamed royal aides saying a complaint had been made against her in 2018.


Most people have accused the royal family of bringing this up to undermine Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey and make her seem like the bad person.


Voicing same opinion, Patrick J Adams tweeted: "It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, who’s newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of “bullying” against a woman who herself was basically forced to flea the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health.


"IMO, this newest chapter and its timing is just another stunning example of the shamelessness of an institution that has outlived its relevance, is way overdrawn on credibility and apparently bankrupt of decency.


"Find someone else to admonish, berate and torment. My friend Meghan is way out of your league."

Igbo presidency won’t solve Nigeria’s problems – Renowned economist, Alex Otti


Igbo presidency won?t solve Nigeria?s problems ?  Renowned economist, Alex Otti

Former Group Managing Director, Diamond Bank Plc and two-time governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, has opined that handing the Igbo Nigeria’s presidency would not solve the problem of Nigeria, as some fundamental structural problems must be handled for an egalitarian society to be institutionalised.

The renowned economist also stated that insecurity would continue in the country until poverty among the citizens is addressed.


Speaking to Sunnewsonline, he said: “A situation where close to 90 million people, representing 43 per cent of our population, live below the poverty line of less than 1.90 dollar per day, makes the country a veritable candidate for insecurity of the highest order.”

"If you have followed my politics, you would realise that I do not believe in primordial sentiments. I believe that tribe and religion are basically smokescreens used by politicians to drive personal interests."

" Having said that, I also know that arrangements about power shift have remained the fulcrum of our politics in Nigeria. That is not to say that our salvation is going to come from that."

" Given that arrangement that has had power move from North to South and power having been in the North for two terms, it should naturally move to the South. Since South-West and South-South had been in power, it should naturally shift to the South East. That is the extent to which I believe in Igbo Presidency."

"Would that solve the problem of Nigeria? I think not. There are some fundamental structural problems that must be dealt with for an egalitarian society to be institutionalised."

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo accused of sexual harassment for second time in one week


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo accused of sexual harassment for second time in one week

Seems like the problems facing New York governor, Andrew Cuomo keep piling up as another former aide of his has come forward with allegations of sexual harassment,  just days after his first accuser made her claims public. 

In a New York Times exclusive, Charlotte Bennett, an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Cuomo administration until she left in November, alleged that Cuomo "asked her questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men."

Bennett aged 25, described an incident that took place in June when she was "alone" with the governor aged 63 in his State Capitol office.

According to the New York times report, he allegedly asked her if she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships and that he was open to having relationships with women in their 20s, which were noted by the Times as "comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship."

Bennett alleges that Cuomo never tried touching her, but that the governor's "message" during that exchange was "unmistakable to her."

"I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared," Bennett told the Times.

"And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job."

According to the Times, Bennett disclosed the incident to Cuomo's chief of staff Jill DesRosiers less than a week later and submitted a lengthy statement to Cuomo's special counsel Judith Mogul at the end of the month. 

She was them transferred to another job as a health policy adviser, placing her on the opposite side of the Capitol building. 

Bennett told the Times she didn't legally proceed with the case because she "wanted to move on" and that she was content with her new job.

Cuomo has now responded to the bombshell reports, claiming she came to him to reveal she was a sexual assault survivor, he was trying to be helpful towards her.

In a press release on Saturday February  27, Cuomo called Bennett a "hardworking and valued member of his team during COVID" who has "every right to speak out."

"When she came to me and opened up about being a sexual assault survivor and how it shaped her and her ongoing efforts to create an organization that empowered her voice to help other survivors, I tried to be supportive and helpful," Cuomo said in a statement, which was issued to the Times. 

"Ms. Bennett's initial impression was right: I was trying to be a mentor to her. I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate. The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported."

Cuomo added that he will "have no further comment" until a "full and thorough outside review" of Bennett's claims is conducted and concluded. 

Cuomo's special counsel Judith Mogul also released a statement, which read in-part, "Ms. Bennett's concerns were treated with sensitivity and respect and in accordance with applicable law and policy... The determination reached based on the information Ms Bennett provided was that no further action was required which was consistent with Ms Bennett's wishes."

Lindsey Boylan, Cuomo's first accuser, who was the former deputy secretary for economic development and a special adviser to Cuomo, published a bombshell essay Wednesday on the website Medium. 

She accused the governor of going "out of his way to touch me on my lower back, arms and legs," forcibly kissing her on the lips during a one-on-one briefing, and suggesting that they "play strip poker" during a plane ride. 

Cuomo's office denied Boylan's harassment claims, calling them "simply false" and insisting the strip poker comment "did not happen."


Boylan has now expressed her support for Bennett. 

"I am with you Charlotte. We are with you. Always," Boylan wrote. "I am so proud of you Charlotte."

Meanwhile, Cuomo faces another scandal over his controversial policy of ordering COVID-positive patients into nursing homes in the early months of the pandemic and is now reportedly facing investigations by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney over an alleged cover-up of nursing home deaths in his state.

CNN, the home network of Cuomo's younger brother Chris Cuomo, has not given the scandal much coverage since it broke on Saturday.

CNN also went roughly 24 hours without acknowledging Boylan's damning sexual harassment claims after she came forward.
