Legendary pop singer Sir Cliff Richard reveals identity of his male companion

Legendary pop singer Sir Cliff Richard has revealed that he has shared his life with a former Roman Catholic priest for the last seven years.

UK Pink News reports:
Sir Cliff, 67, is one of the UK's best-known Christians, has been the victim of persistent rumours and innuendo about his sexuality. In his autobiography My Life, My Way, published yesterday, the singer said he met Father John McElynn in 2001. "He hadn't any thought at the beginning of giving up the priesthood, but when it became clear he was thinking of the possibility, I suggested he might help me with some charitable projects," he wrote. "That was seven years ago and our arrangement has worked out really well. John now spends most of his time looking after my properties." READ MORE
