Theresa May exchanged bitter blows with Donald Tusk over Brexit and slammed 'special place in hell' speech in Brussels meeting

The PM confronted the EU chief during a meeting in Brussels over his explosive comment that there is “a special place in hell” for Leave campaign bosses who had not planned.


No10 sources revealed the joust with Mr Tusk was “by far” the testiest of the three meetings with EU bosses.

After it Mrs May said: “I’ve raised the language that he used, which was not helpful and caused widespread dismay”.

But the former Polish premier hit back to insist he had stuck to his guns.

An EU official said: “He remains of the view that while the truth may be more painful, it is always more useful”.

Mrs May also didn’t bring any “new concrete proposals” or “any clear answers on the timeline” with her, the official added.

Mr Tusk himself also tweeted: “No breakthrough in sight. Talks will continue”.

But in a move than angered Downing Street, it emerged that the EU Council president also told Mrs May he preferred Jeremy Corbyn’s rival soft Brexit plan as a batter way of breaking the deadlock.

An EU source added: “Tusk suggested that the Corbyn plan could be a promising way out of the impasse”.

The Labour leader’s five point plan, that includes joining a new customs union, complies the EU’s negotiating guidelines.

But Mrs May hit back at that to insist Mr Corbyn could not be relied on as his new solution had ignited a fresh party civil war and many of his Labour MPs would refuse to vote for it.

Bitter Comedy Feud! Jerry Seinfeld Hates Jimmy Kimmel

It’s no joke: Jerry Seinfeld can’t stand Jimmy Kimmel!

RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the two comedy kings are caught up in a bitter feud.

“Nobody knows where the bad blood comes from, but Jerry just hates Jimmy,” a source told Radar, adding that friends believe the animosity stems from just plain jealousy. “People believe Jerry is envious of Jimmy.”

Despite Seinfeld’s enormous success from his self-titled NBC 90’s sitcom, Kimmel, 51, has had a far higher profile recently, with his late-night ABC chatfest and hosting gigs on the Oscars, Emmys and other awards shows.

“There’s no specific event anybody can point to, and it’s not coming from Kimmel’s side,” the source confessed. “He’s a huge Seinfeld fan and he’s always talking about what a great comic Jerry is.”

Kimmel has previously had Seinfeld, 64, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and has even done his Seinfeld impression for him, but something has gone south in recent years, according to the source.

“You won’t see Jerry on Jimmy’s show again — ever,” the insider revealed.

Widow in legal battle with stepson after he ‘threw her out of home’

Wealthy property investor’s widow, 57, is locked in bitter legal battle with stepson she helped raise after he ‘threw her out of their £450,000 home “like a dog”‘

  • Diane De Marzo, 57, says she lent £150k to Sonny Ball to help him find a home
  • Says it was for him and his girlfriend, now wife, Leahann, 33, after his father died 
  • The plan was she would share family property with them, Mrs De Marzo claims
  • But she says she was ‘thrown out’ of the house by Sonny and is now demanding that he give her the money back – but he claims the money was his inheritance

Diane De Marzo, 57, (pictured outside court) says she lent £150,000 to Sonny Ball, 33, to help him find a home for him and his girlfriend after his father died

A wealthy property investor’s widow who claims she was thrown out of her home ‘like a dog’ by her stepson has taken him to court.

Diane De Marzo, 57, says she lent £150,000 to Sonny Ball, 33, to help him find a home for him and his girlfriend and now wife, Leahann, 33, after his father died.

Mrs De Marzo claims the plan was she would share the property with them – but she says Sonny then threw her out of the house in Abbey Wood, Kent.

Demanding they sell the house and give her the money back, she now claims she was ‘scammed’ by Sonny, who she had always considered her ‘boy’.

‘He said I was like his ‘mum’ and he threw me out like a dog,’ Mrs De Marzo told Central London County Court.

‘In my eyes, he was ‘my boy’. His dad always believed he would do right by his family.’

But Sonny and his now wife say nothing could be further from the truth, that the money was a gift and represented his inheritance from his dad, Michael Ball.

Mrs De Marzo has no right to any part of the three-bed £450,000 property as it is theirs alone, said the couple’s barrister Lina Mattsson.

She had been allowed to stay with them when she was in need, but was ‘obsessed’ with his father Michael Ball’s death to the point she was asked to leave.

But Sonny and his now wife Leahann (both pictured outside court) say that the money was a gift and represented his inheritance from his dad, Michael Ball

‘They were finding it more and more difficult to live with Mrs De Marzo,’ said the barrister.

‘She was obsessed with how Michael Ball had died, claiming it was murder or suicide. She talked about the circumstances of his death all the time.

‘Sonny was finding it very difficult to cope with the tension at home. He tried to avoid her, staying away.

‘The situation was becoming unbearable and, on 23 May 2015, they asked Mrs De Marzo to leave the property.’

Ms Mattsson said that it was only after that row that Mrs De Marzo started claiming Sonny had ‘stolen her money’ and that she had a claim to the house.

‘She turned Sonny’s younger sisters against him, telling them that he had stolen their money,’ she continued

‘She emailed Sonny and Leahann, attaching an accident report with horrible photographs of Sonny’s dead father.’

But in her evidence, Mrs De Marzo – who has known Sonny since he was five years old – insisted that the money was not a gift.

Had she given £150,000 to Sonny, it would have meant less ultimately going to her husband’s four other children, three of whom he had with her.

‘I need to look after all the children,’ she told Judge Simon Monty QC. ‘Sonny can’t just have £150,000 all to himself.’

She said when the property was bought, she had insisted that Sonny and Leahann draw up wills to ensure the £150,000 went back to her if they died first.

Her barrister, Piers Hill, said the arrangement had always been that Mrs De Marzo would live in the property with the couple.

She paid the broadband bill for a year and funded an extension to the driveway so her car could fit, he said.

But Leahann Ball insisted that the £150,000 was Sonny’s inheritance and that her step-mother-in-law has no right to the house.

‘If she had wanted the property to be jointly owned, then that’s what it would have been,’ she said. ‘We would have gone to buy a house three ways.

‘She wanted to see Sonny settled, it was what his dad wanted. By giving him the £150,000, she didn’t have to worry about him anymore.’

The court heard Mrs De Marzo and Michael Ball moved to Spain in 2006, where Mr Ball owned a string of properties.

Sonny initially went with them but returned to England in 2007 and now lives with Leahann in the disputed property in Abbey Wood.

His father, who died in a road accident in 2013, owned a large family villa, a rental house and two beachside apartments in southern Spain, plus a flat in Kent.

Judge Monty will rule on the case at a later date.
