his moves which conservative watchdogs found too sexy.Cliff Richard too sexy?Don't laugh,but yes this was true back in the day.Now why would a man who was very successful,in fact that's an understatement.Cliff Richard is one of the most successful British solo artist ever!
So we are talking a mega mega star here.So back to my question,why would a man with all the success,who is better looking than your average guy,looks incredibly young for his age,has all the money in the world,works in an industry reputed for its excesses,decide to or portray an image as a man who does not indulge in sex or even relationships and has no desire to marry even though their are millions of women who are dying to change this bachelor boy? "He is the third-top-selling singles artist in the United Kingdom's history, with total sales of over 21 million units in the UK and has reportedly sold an estimated 250 million records worldwide". Cliff Richard has had more than 130 singles, albums and EP'S make the UK Top 20, more than any body else and holds the record as the only British act to make the UK singles charts in all of its first six decades (1950s–2000s). Sir Cliff Richard has also had 14 UK No. 1 singles and is the only singer to have had a No. 1 single in the UK in 5 consecutive decades: the 1950s through to the 1990s!Songs like Summer Holiday,We don't talk anymore,Living Doll,The young ones,Devil woman,Miss you nights,Carrie,Daddy's home,Mistle toe and wine, just to mention a very few had made Cliff Richards one the biggest names in world music.
|Police arriving at Cliff Richards property.
Like many showbiz personalities who have hidden their personal lives or gave impression it doesn't exist,rumours and insinuations will always follow them.
Cliff Richard has had his fair share of rumours for a long time and he surer is used to them.We are all used to them.I don't bat an eyelid when i see an article debating Cliff Richards sex life or lack of one.My reaction was always "aww not again" leave this man alone,if you haven't found nothing all these years,you surely won't find nothing now.So stop these rumours already.
|Cliff Richard's home in Portugal where he was when the Police invaded his property in Sunningdale,England.
So imagine the shock when the news took the airwaves suggesting that in 1985,when well know American Evangelist,Billy Graham came to the UK for a Christian rally in Sheffield,at the Braham Lane Stadium,Sir Cliff Richard assaulted a School boy under 16 sexually?!!
The very thing Sir Cliff Richard held so dearly,his christian values now being suggested could be the very medium and platform he used to commit one of the most terrible things an adult could do to a child(assualting an underage)? Surely this is unthinkable?But that is exactly the allegations and accusations thrown at Sir Cliff Richard.
The police descended on his property in Sunningdale Berkshire with full force! Five police cars were seen leaving his property after five hours of searching the property.They carted away tons of what could be evidence.A few things seemed unusual though,normally the Police try as much as possible not to release any details in cases like these.Take for example when they were investigating the jailed and disgraced Rolf Harris,the Australian star who was convicted and jail for s3xual offences.The police gave so little away during the investigations and would not even mention him by name.In Sir Cliff Richards case,the press was tipped off,the BBC reporting staff were at the scene way before the police came.The Police openly spoke about the case afterwards and what really struck me was when the police spokesman used the words"No one has been arrested at the stage" He had already said before then that the owner of the property was not present during the search,so why did he have to say no one has been arrested at this stage when that was very obvious? That sounds to me like,it hasn't happened now,but it will at a later date.
As expected,Cliff Richard has come out fighting and denied the suggestions and allegations.He said he had heard rumours about him being involved in some kind of scandal over the last 2 years.So i guess he was expecting a scandal,or maybe not.He also said in a statement that he had chosen not to dignify the rumours online with a statement or a response so as not to give it more oxygen.
'The allegations are completely false. Up until now I have chosen not to dignify the false allegations with a response, as it would just give them more oxygen.
'However, the police attended my apartment in Berkshire today without notice except, it would appear, to the Press.
'It goes without saying that I will co-operate fully should the police wish to speak to me.'
He was said to be shocked yesterday when he learnt that police were searching his penthouse suite in Sunningdale after live television images of the raid were beamed around the world.
Officers are expected to question the star as soon as he flies back to the UK. Sir Cliff accused police of leaking the raid to the media yesterday, saying he had no notice of the searches being carried out.
I personally would not have been surprised if it had been an expose of Sir Cliff Richard being caught in a compromising position with an adult,cos like i said ,we are all human with our needs.What i didn't expect was Cliff Richard being linked to an underage boy,i did not see that coming at all and it hit me right between the eyes!
