Maybe I’ve been living under a rock all of these years, but if someone told me last year that folk-singing, gravel-voiced Bob Dylan had a black daughter, I wouldn’t have believed them. But indeed, he does, and so do a wealth of other famous white folks whose music we listen to, see on-screen and watch on the catwalk. Some have just managed to keep their children out of the spotlight. But with paparazzi everywhere, these little know children (many now adults) managed to step into public view. Here are 10 white celebrities who are the biological parents of black children.
The legendary folk singer who has been making music since the early ’60s has also been making babies for quite a while too. Aside from the children he had during his first marriage, Dylan had a daughter by the name of Desiree Gabrielle Dennis-Dylan. Desiree’s mother is actually one of Dylan’s former background singers named Carolyn Dennis. They were married from 1986 to 1992, however, the relationship was kept a secret until a biography about Dylan’s life was released in 2001 called Down the Highway: The Life Of Bob Dylan. Carolyn once said though that Bob was a great father despite them being kept on the low-low. Desiree, who is gay, is engaged to be married to longtime girlfriend Kayla Sampson and will tie the knot next year. No word yet on if Bob will attend…
Hollywood’s brightest stars may seemingly live the glamorous life that millions may dream of but everything that glitters isn’t gold. These celebs were the target of a real-life murder plot simply because they’re famous.
Since the age of 12, Miley Cyrus has been winning fans over as the star of Disney’s “Hannah Montana.” As her popularity grew, so did one crazed fan’s love for the teen star. In 2008, FBI foiled a plot a teenager had to allegedly hijack a plane and crash it into a Miley Cyrus concert. The 16-year-old was apprehended trying to board a flight from L.A. to Nashville carrying duct tape, handcuffs and rope with him. The target was a Lafayette, Louisiana stadium where Cyrus was scheduled to perform. Although the plot was downplayed, authorities acknowledged how serious the crazed teen was.
Could you have something in your attic or basement that is worth thousands? Actress/model Marsha Hunt did. She recently sold the love letters that legendary rocker Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones sent her when the two were an item. Hunt recently auctioned off the letters, which then-25-year-old Jagger penned during the summer of 1969 to his African-American former lover while he was in Australia working on the film Ned Kelly, reports The Grio.
The 10 letters were sold at a Sotheby’s auction for $301,472 to a private collector. Initially, they were thought to only be worth $160,000, writes the Associated Press. “When a serious historian finally examines how and why Britain’s boy bands affected international culture and politics, this well-preserved collection of Mick Jagger’s hand written letters will be a revelation,” Hunt said in a statement distributed by the auction house. Jagger reportedly also wrote the 1971 hit song “Brown Sugar” about Hunt, according to TIME. Hunt and Jagger have one child together — daughter Karis Jagger.
Like, Hunt you could have a treasure packed away in storage. If you think you have something valuable, get it checked by an appraiser. Also, go online to sites like eBay and do a search for similar items. Reports eHow, “As a general rule, you can count on an item being of some value if it is more than 15 years old.”
According to MSN, things to look for include gold and silver jewelry, items that have been passed down from generation to generation, special magazine editions, old movie posters, old stocks and bonds, vintage sporting goods such as antique gold clubs, and even old electronic gadgets. “Gazelle.com buys items in 20 categories, including desktop computers, cameras (film and digital), cellphones, even Wii video games,” advises MSN.
