According to the Herald-Journal, Kennedy’s relatives said the Snapchat video in question was taken four years ago when he was 12. 

His mother Anita Guy told the paper, ‘I hate this has happened and how Caleb is being portrayed by people online.

‘This video was taken after Caleb had watched the movie The Strangers: Prey at Night and they were imitating those characters. It had nothing to do with the Ku Klux Klan, but I know that’s how it looks. Caleb doesn’t have a racist bone in his body. He loves everyone and has friends of all races.’

The Bachelorette’s Angie Kent reveals her ‘severe’ phobia of belly buttons

Angie Kent reveals her ‘severe’ phobia of belly buttons – as she tries therapy to overcome her navel nightmare

She’s the former Bachelorette who has just launched a new podcast, Angie Tries It.

And during Monday’s launch episode, Angie Kent opened up about her biggest anxiety in life: her fear of belly buttons.

The 31-year-old explained that both she and her father suffer from omphalophobia.

Bizarre: On Monday, Angie Kent opened up about her biggest anxiety in life – her fear of belly buttons

Part of the reason why she started her podcast was to try different therapies in order to combat this irrational fear.

‘The one thing I haven’t been overly open about is one of my anxiety buttons, you could call it,’ she said. ‘It happens to actually be my belly button.’

Omphalophobia is the persistent fear of belly buttons, with sufferers sometimes unable to touch the navel area, look at someone else’s belly button or even think about one without feeling ill.

‘I’m getting proper sweaty even [thinking about it], she said. ‘My skin is, like, moist.’

Angie's anguish: The 31-year-old explained that both she and her father suffer from omphalophobia, and she had started the podcast to try different therapies in order to one day be free of her irrational fear

Speaking about father’s phobia, she added: ‘My dad has it – he has to clean his bellybutton all the time, and no one can watch him, no one can talk about it.’

Angie’s podcast focuses on her trying different types of therapies and discussing their benefits or lack thereof.

‘By the end of this [podcast series], if I could talk about my belly button without getting sweaty, I would know there’s something in my body that has switched and my anxiety would be at bay,’ she said.

Hopes: 'By the end of this, if I could talk about my belly button without getting sweaty, I would know there's something in my body that has switched and my anxiety would be at bay,' she added

‘I’ll just be the world’s most confident girl, and I’ll just love belly buttons!’

‘I’m really excited about it.’ she gushed.

In the first episode of Angie Tries It, she underwent past life regression therapy, and discovered she had once been a troubled woman named Rosie.

Natalie Portman goes make-up free as she takes a day off from Thor filming in Sydney

Makeup-free Natalie Portman takes a day off from shooting Thor: Love and Thunder as she strolls around Sydney with her mother Shelley

She has been living in Australia since November as production continues on Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder.

But actress Natalie Portman took a well-deserved break from filming on Wednesday, spending the day exploring Sydney with her mother, Shelley Stevens.

The 39-year-old, who plays astrophysicist Jane Foster in the Thor franchise, cut a casual figure as she grabbed coffee from a local café.

Mum-and-daughter time: Natalie Portman has been Down Under since September. And on Thursday, she took some time off from shooting Thor: Love and Thunder to have a day out with her mum, Shelley Stevens.

The Black Swan star, who is known for her show-stopping red carpets appearances, showed off her natural beauty by going makeup free.

She also opted for a laid-back look by teaming a navy jumper with denim cut-offs.

The mother of two completed her outfit with Converse sneakers, leopard-print sunglasses and a black cross-body satchel.

Casual look! Natalie who is used to attending glamorous Red Carpets in Tinsel Town, appears to have adjusted to a relaxed life Down Under. So much so, she went make-up free and donned a casual look for her outing.

Meanwhile, Shelley looked chic in beige chinos, a navy and white floral blouse and Nike sneakers.

At one stage, Natalie stepped away from her mother to take a phone call.

The conversation seemed quite serious, and may have been regarding work or her plans to purchase real estate in Australia. 

Busy lady! At one stage, Natalie stepped away from her mum to take what appeared to be a tense phone call.

This sighting comes days after Natalie was spotted house hunting with her husband, Benjamin Millepied, 43, in rural New South Wales.

The couple, along with their children, Aleph, nine, and Amalia, four, have been living Down Under for the last six months.

The famous family have gone largely unnoticed in Australia, and appear to have fit in easily with the laid-back locals in trendy areas like Byron Bay and Bondi Beach.

In November, she visited a Melbourne Demons AFL training session at Gosch’s Paddock.

Earlier this month, the Star Wars actress stopped by the Zimmerman store in Paddington with her mother ahead of Mother’s Day.

Rose Byrne displays her natural beauty by going makeup free in Sydney

Rose Byrne displays her natural beauty by going makeup free on an outing in Sydney with partner Bobby Cannavale and their three-year-old son Rafa

She recently admitted her beauty routine ‘went out the window’ while in quarantine.

But Rose Byrne still looked flawless as she went for a stroll around Sydney on Wednesday with her partner Bobby Cannavale and their son Rafa, three.

The actress, 41, drew attention to her natural beauty by going makeup free, and clad her toned figure in black leggings and a grey sweatshirt.

No makeup necessary: Rose Byrne [pictured] let her natural beauty shine through on Wednesday, when the Australian actress took a makeup free stroll through Sydney with her partner Bobby Cannavale and their son Rafa [L]

The Bad Neighbours star covered her brunette tresses with a black baseball cap and carried several bags while running errands in the city.

By her side was one of the two sons she shares with her 51-year-old partner.

Toddler Rafa looked cute as a button in jeans and a sweatshirt as he stayed close to his famous mum.

Meanwhile, Bobby kept things casual in shorts, a T-shirt and a New York Yankees baseball cap.

The Boardwalk Empire star shielded his gaze behind a pair of dark shades. 

Byrne recently reflected on motherhood and getting through quarantine with yoga and homemade cocktails as she graced the June 2021 cover of Shape magazine.

The Two Hands star was a sight to behold on the cover of the glossy, where she put her gym-honed abs on display in a butterfly-embellished top. 

‘All my beauty routines have gone out the window,’ said Rose, who is also mother to five-year-old son Rocco. ‘I spend my days covered in markers, Play-Doh, and flour.’

The family recently completed 14 days of hotel quarantine in Sydney after flying in from the U.S.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph’s Stellar Magazine in March 2018, Rose described being back home in Australia as ‘pretty luxurious’.

‘Having the grandparents [around] – I got very spoiled when I was there. They’re very hands-on and I really do miss that,’ she said after a stint in Australia,’ she said..

‘That’s such a lovely thing to have. Occasionally I’ll walk out of the house [in New York] and be like, ‘Where am I again? Why am I here again?’ I still feel like the outsider.

‘But America’s been good to me. I met my husband here, I’ve been very lucky in America. But it’s hard to leave [Australia]. I was quite disoriented after those six months, coming back to New York.’

MasterChef: Betting odds shift dramatically to reveal new favourite to win

MasterChef Australia SPOILER: Betting odds shift dramatically to reveal a NEW favourite to win… just hours after the finale was filmed

The betting odds for MasterChef Australia’s outright winner have shifted dramatically since the season finale was filmed in Melbourne on Wednesday.

Before the finale was recorded, 36-year-old tattoo artist Pete Campbell had been Sportsbet’s clear favourite to win the Channel 10 cooking competition.

But hours later, the odds changed dramatically to favour youth pastor Justin Narayan, 27, who has very narrow odds of $1.50 as of Thursday afternoon.

MasterChef SPOILER: Betting odds for MasterChef’s outright winner suddenly changed on Thursday to favour Justin Narayan, 27. The finale was filmed in Melbourne on Wednesday

Pete dropped to a $6 outsider overnight, while Kishwar Chowdhury, 38, is still the second-favourite with odds of $4. 

TAB, meanwhile, has Justin sitting at even shorter odds of $1.08 to win it all.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment regarding the apparent rush of money tipping Justin to win the contest.

Before production wrapped on Wednesday, three leading online bookmakers were tipping Pete to take out the thirteenth season of MasterChef.

At the time, Pete’s odds to win were $2.75 on Sportsbet, $2.25 on TAB, and $1.75 on PointsBet.

Meanwhile, the bookies had tipped Kishwar Chowdhury and Justin for second and third place respectively. 

Kishwar is a printing business owner with two young children, and Justin is a Western Australian youth pastor.

Steady: The bookies had as of Wednesday also tipped Kishwar Chowdhury for second place, where she remained on Thursday despite the shifting odds

Because the Channel 10 program is prerecorded, the outcome is known by industry insiders and MasterChef crew members.

While Pete, Kishwar and Justin may make it to the finale, there is one production element that could add a surprise twist.

In previous years, judges of the show have said multiple endings are filmed to avoid spoilers leaking.

‘”We laugh a lot about this story, and we are so shocked that people are buying it hook line a sinker. It’s total bulls**t.”‘

The ‘insider’ went on to claimed the relationship is ‘the Hollywood machine trying to change the narrative’, and shows that J.Lo is still ‘hot and desirable’ after rumours emerged her ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez had been unfaithful.

Rumours of cheating have always been shut down by both parties.

‘I had an accident when I was 10 where I smashed my two front teeth on metal cricket stumps,’ he explained.

Delighted with the results: 'I couldn’t be happier with how they’ve turned out, my teeth feel strong, they look great,' Bryce told Daily Mail Australia of his new smile

‘Ever since, I’ve had to get those two front teeth capped, and replaced every two years and was going to have to get them crowned,’ he added.

Last month, Bryce was involved in a nightclub brawl in Melbourne which resulted in several chipped teeth from being hit in the mouth.

‘After the nightclub [incident] getting the veneers made sense because over time it would have been a headache getting multiple capped and replaced, so I made the smarter option,’ he said.

‘Dr Dee suggested the porcelain veneers as they’re strong and give a better look aesthetically so I thought it made sense over getting crowns.

‘I couldn’t be happier with how they’ve turned out, my teeth feel strong, they look great.’

Melissa, also 32, was on hand to support Bryce, and while at Dr Dee’s clinic she had measurements for her new veneers.

The celebrity dental specialist said it’s ‘always a privilege’ to help patients at his Vogue Dental Studios practice in Melbourne.

Joanne Todd, Jessika Power, Nick Furphy, Timm Hanly and Carlin Sterritt are just a few of the reality stars who have also undergone transformations with Dr. Duraisamy.
