The blind about the ill actress is almost an invasion of privacy. I suppose all these things are but when it comes to someone's health and them wanting to keep it private and carry on, it's a different matter to are they/aren't they relationships.
The blind about the sportsman, I think some of you may be on the right track (boomboom!
). The same thing has been rife on Twitter and other sites in several countries for months, though going by some of the things said, some of the details on the blind are inaccurate (particularly in terms of the timings, length of relationships, etc). However I will warn that if it is about that person, the rumoured/suspected "Miss B" is registered on this site and has been for years so a little caution is called for, perhaps.
