Outrageous what Tyron Smith’s family expected of him financially according to ESPN.com. There is absolutely nothing wrong with helping your mother or family out if you make it big in any career; but Smiths’ family felt extremely entitled. They expected him to care for their needs and wants and became greedy. Tyon Smith did the best thing by cutting off his family so he and any future family he has could have a life, retirement savings and live well. He doesn’t owe his family a thing. Good for you Tyron Smith. I applaud you for your courage and your efforts to show other up and coming ball players (and other parvenus) how to stop the money trains.
- NHL star Jack Johnson made his parents his financial advisers in 2008, and signed over control of his money to his mother in 2011
- The parents of the Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman then spent his money on cars, travel and a new loan
- Johnson’s parents also took out non-conventional loans, and defaulted on them
- The loans included one for $2million, with an interest rate of 12 percent, and one for $3 million, with an interest rate of 24 percent
- Now, Johnson is bankrupt and still owes $10million or more to debtors
What she did was wrong. It took Nathan C. Daniels years to learn this, and overcome the shame of being her victim.
Editor’s Note: This article contains descriptions of child sexual abuse.
I was six years old when my sister started molesting me. I trusted and loved her, but she chose to betray that trust by manipulating my innocence. My big sister, who was seven years my senior chose to deform that love in the most vile way. Sometimes, she would lure me into her bedroom with tricks, bribes, or threats. Other times, she might corner me in the basement with brute force and cold eyes. Her hands or mouth would find me and do things I couldn’t understand. Eventually, I had to do things to her too. The acts could last a second, like a passing grope in the hallway, or a lifetime on the abrasive carpet in the basement. This secret would endure a year, sowing seeds that would blossom into decades of suffering. Read the rest of the story.
Tiara Stevens and her precious, cute little son
- Tiara Stevens says her father raped her in their South Carolina trailer and authorities did nothing for 14 years
- Fred Montgomery, 47, is confirmed to be the father – and grandfather – of the young boy
- The child was born blind and albino
- Ms Steven says she sometimes confuses herself over whether the boy is her son or her brother
A woman who was repeatedly raped by her father and gave birth to her own brother has hit out after her attacker was only jailed for a year.
Tiara Stevens said on Monday she had waited 14 years for justice only to see her father’s sentence as a ‘slap in the face.’
An outraged Tiara said: ‘To wait 14 years and all a person gets is one year?
‘A pat on the back, telling them it’s okay to molest your daughter, impregnate her, and for her to have a child, a blind child? It’s ok?’
Devastated: Tiara Stevens, 27, says her son was born blind and albino after she was impregnated by her own father at age 12
Fred Montgomery, 47, had pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
He was sentenced on Monday to 15 years in jail, but all but one year was suspended.
Tiara was just 12 years old when she was impregnated by her father at the trailer home they shared.
She only realised she was pregnant the day before she gave birth after going into labour at school.
Her son was born blind and due to gene problems was born an albino.
Tiara told officials in 1999 that her father had raped her in the mobile home they shared in Lancaster County, South Carolina.
But no action was ever taken even though a DNA test in 2000 confirmed he was the father of his own grandson.
Tiara and her father continued to live in the same small town for over a decade until authorities were pushed into action by the single mother.
Officials with the 6th Circuit Solicitor’s Office said a fire at the courthouse destroyed many of the documents related to the case.
In an interview with WISTV, 27 year old Tiara said she was shocked by the lenient sentence.
‘It was a slap in the face,’ she said.
Tiara said she is often confused on how to describe her son.
‘That confuses me a lot,’ said Stevens. ‘It’s like, “Which one are you today? Are you my son, or are you my brother?” Because he really is both.’
In a previous interview, Tiara described how her father would sneak into her room and rape her.
‘He never told me what he was doing,’ said Stevens. ‘It was just late at night. He would come in, take my clothes off, and he would have sex. And he would leave and he would say, “You better not stay up all night,” and I would go in the bathroom and I would cry. The next night he may not do it, but the next night, he would repeat the same thing.’
Tiara said she has not yet told her son that her grandfather is actually her father and will be out of prison in a year.
‘From this day forward, I will fight for victim’s rights to make sure this never happens again,’ Stevens said.
My name is Dennis Stuart. Since elementary school, my brother Dan and I have been very competitive. It was more on his part to best me at everything we did. We made good grades, played sports and worked hard on every project we were assigned. Both mom and dad were teachers so it was a given that we were competitive. I got a bachelor’s degree in engineering and Dan as well, but Dan one upped me and my parents. He got a bachelor’s and M.D. degrees. By the time we were in our mid-20s, I was so tired of this silly rivalry game, but Dan was as competitive as ever. I was concerned that our younger twin brother sister were starting to become like Dan. I just observed and mentioned to my parents that Dan took love competing with me for some reason. My mother did sometimes have my father step in when she thought Dan was going a bit too far. But it had been years since I had heard her say anything to my father or Dan about his need to be out in front on everything. I hope they would stop this with the twins.
I stopped protesting and let Dan go on with his games. I stopped telling him anything about my plans because all he would do was find a way to diminish it and throw insults about what or how he could do something better. I remember when I said I was going to take guitar lessons. Dan said that he had already taken guitar lessons years ago and learned piano too. Why couldn’t he just say something nice? This was the scenario with everything I did or said.
When I started dating my wife Courtney, Dan was nice to her and thought she was pretty, but he was determined to get a prettier girlfriend. The girl he was dating named Anne, was very attractive and super nice despite Dan’s obsessive behavior. He opted to trade her in and go for a prettier girl. Dan found Jin in the gym where he worked out every day. She is actually half Chinese and half British. Jin is smart, getting a master’s degree in International Business and was on her way to run a fortune 500 company. Jin stood up to Dan. They debated a lot but seemed to genuinely love each other. I didn’t get involved in their lives at all. I was too busy courting my wife and preparing to propose after about 10 months. I made the mistake of sharing my plans with mom. After all, it was mainly mom who taught me how to treat Courtney and win her heart. She was overjoyed and told Dan how happy she was for me and that she would be getting some grandchildren sooner than she thought. Dan could not stand the fact that I was so happy and getting married before he would, so he set out to sabotage my plans.
About four weeks passed. On the day that I proposed to Courtney, she accepted over a nice quiet dinner. We invited our families to dinner the next night to officially make the announcement. Everyone came including Courtney’s parents and two younger siblings. Dan and Jin invited her parents who were visiting from Hong Kong. I announced that Courtney and I were officially engaged and planned to be married in about a year. My father stood up and toasted us. He blessed our engagement with all kinds of compliments and told us he already loved Courtney like a daughter. Courtney’s mom cried and her parents came over to hug us both. Mom cried too and told her future in-laws how happy she was to increase our family by five people. I tried to ignore Dan’s fake smiles but wondered how he would try to out-do me. I expected him to say something nice even if he was insincere. Well it only took ten minutes and Dan made an announcement of his own. He stood up, congratulated me, and announced that he and Jin were also engaged and getting married in Hong Kong, in three months.
Everyone was in shock but applauded Dan and Jin. He did it again. Dan’s competitiveness now included innocent parties. My parents and I knew exactly what he was doing and I was seething, but I contained my anger and was determined not to let Dan completely ruin our night. Dan totally manipulated the situation by asking me to be his best man. Not only did he try to steal my joy, Dan was bullying. I quickly turned the attention back to our announcement and said that Courtney would be planning her dream wedding and that I was leaving everything up to her. Courtney stood up and announced that I made her the happiest woman in the world. She also showed class in congratulating Jin. I finished my dinner in a fake, festive mood.
