Elvis: Alice Cooper almost shot Elvis and was thrown down with ‘a boot at my throat’

A clearly starstruck Cooper described how The King still retained his powerful charisma and superstar aura.

He said: “When he came in the room he was Elvis. He wasn’t the fat Elvis, he was… Elvis. He was the guy.

“He goes, ‘Hey man, you’re the cat with the snake ain’t you? That’s cool, man I wish I would have thought of that. That’s cool man. Hey, I want to show you something.’

“We go in the kitchen and he opens a drawer and takes out a loaded ’38, a snub-nosed ’38.

“Puts in my hand and he says, ‘I’m going to show you how to take this gun out of somebody’s hand.’”

Clarkson’s Farm’s Kaleb Cooper admits snubbing David Cameron as former PM left starstruck

Kaleb Cooper has amassed his own dedicated army of followers since Jeremy Clarkson’s latest Amazon Prime series was released. Clarkson’s Farm follows the former Top Gear presenter as he embarks on a new career venture, farming.

The show debuted just three weeks ago, following the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host as he struggles to cope with farming, harvesting and other activities.

Doncaster-born Jeremy must contend with “disobedient animals”, “unresponsive crops”, and terrible farming weather conditions, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, throughout the series, 23-year-old Kaleb Cooper, who used to run Clarkson’s farm for its previous owner, has become a star in his own right.

Since the series first hit the streaming service, Kaleb has gained many fans, including an extremely famous follower.

In a chance encounter, Kaleb bumped into former Prime Minister, David Cameron, who served in office between May 2010 and July 2016.

The Conservative MP has been praised for modernising the Tories as well as decreasing the UK’s national deficit.

However, while Mr Cameron, 54, may be an instantly recognisable character, he was shunned by Kaleb.

In a new interview, he has revealed that during an outing in Chipping Norton, the former Prime Minister was the one to approach him.

Speaking to The Sun, Kaleb said: “The other day when I was in Chippy, I got out the truck and David Cameron, I didn’t realise at the time, was next to me.

“He was like, ‘Oh another local celebrity’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, yeah, I’ve got to go’.”

Kaleb went on to tell the publication: “I walked straight past, I went, ‘Hang on a minute, that was David Cameron’.

“I said to Jeremy, ‘I think I met David Cameron. Does he drive a pick-up?’ ‘Yeah’, ‘Oh I met David Cameron and didn’t realise it’.”

He added: “So they all laughed at that, I don’t follow the news and I don’t watch TV, so I wouldn’t really know.”

During Clarkson’s Farm, Kaleb is often seen offering his words of advice to Jeremy, 61, who named his farm “Diddly Squat” after admitting he had no knowledge of the agricultural industry.

“The way I think about it, I know about farming and he’s learning, therefore I’m the boss, when he says, ‘We’re gonna do this’, I’m like, ‘No, we’re not going to do that because that won’t work’,” he told the publication.

He added: “He doesn’t listen, I don’t get intimidated by him.”

Last month, Jeremy admitted that despite viewers often seeing him shouting at people on screen, once cameras stop rolling, he is often the one being shouted at.

Speaking on Sky News’ Backstage podcast, he said: “I get shouted at all the time, I’m constantly being shouted at by newspapers and bosses, I’m always being shouted at.”

He went on to acknowledge that it’s “the usual” to see him on screens shouting at other people.

“But in real life, you get shouted out by people who know what they’re doing – I didn’t know what I was doing.”

Bradley Cooper has stepped out for a stroll with his adorable, mini-me daughter Lea on a rainy New York City day.

Bradley Cooper, 46, and his four-year-old daughter Lea have been spotted walking hand-in-hand in New York City. The pair were seen strolling on May 5, and little Lea looked seriously adorable. She wore a grey woolen top with a purple tulle skirt over jeans, and a pair of leopard print shoes, which she’s worn before! The toddler also donned a pink protective face mask and a green jacket to protect against the chill.

Meanwhile, Bradley wore a grey hoodie and a black tee along with a protective face mask and leather boots. He also carried an umbrella and donned green cargo pants. The actor, who shares his daughter with model Irina Shayk, 35, has been on good co-parenting terms with his ex. The Victoria’s Secret model recently opened up about why she doesn’t publicly discuss their almost four-year relationship, as well as their breakup. She revealed it’s because she feels it’s a “private” matter that is part of her “inner self.”

“My past relationship, it’s something that belongs to me, and it’s private,” she told Elle. “It’s just a piece of my inner self that I don’t want to give away.” She continued, “I never understood the term co-parenting. When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad. Co-parenting is parenting.”

Bradley and Irina ended their four year relationship in June 2019 and have been busy sharing parenting responsibilities ever since. A source previously told us that Bradley’s been loving his father-daughter times with Lea and puts her needs above all else. “[Brad’s] the best dad, he’s so bonded with Lea and shares all the duties equally with Irina,” a source close to the exes EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in March of 2020. “There’s no ego involved, he puts his daughter’s needs first and fortunately Irina does the same, that’s why it works so well.”

'Francis Ngannou can beat Tyson Fury with a boxing training camp': UFC champ's striking coach Dewey Cooper to RT Sport (VIDEO)

By Danny Armstrong

Danny Armstrong is a Moscow-based British journalist, reporter and presenter for RT Sport. Follow him on Twitter @DannyWArmstrong

Francis Ngannou possesses the boxing ability to beat ring superstar Tyson Fury, that’s the opinion of the UFC heavyweight champ’s striking coach Dewey Cooper, who masterminded the Cameroonian’s title-winning KO of Stipe Miocic.

Former pro boxer and Muay Thai world champion Cooper refined Ngannou’s straight left that sat Miocic down once before a final switch-flicking blow to grasp the heavyweight belt at the second attempt against the likeable American in March. 

While making a post-fight appearance on podcast Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, Ngannou told the former ‘baddest man on the planet’ of his desire to fulfil a “primary dream” to compete in the noble art, and to fight another Tyson, the current unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

In an interview with RT Sport, Cooper expressed his belief that with the correct amendments to his charge’s training camp, a victory against ‘The Gypsy King’ would be entirely attainable.  

“Tyson Fury right now is the best boxer in the world. Tyson is difficult for any heavyweight because of the attributes, the speed, the boxing ability, the good defence, the confidence and swagger,” Cooper said.

“Tyson’s a real one and Tyson is a tough fight for anybody in boxing. But Francis definitely can fight any heavyweight with time and amending the training a little bit. He can definitely do it because Francis does have power.

“However with a boxing glove the power would decrease a little bit compared to what it is with the MMA gloves because MMA gloves is only 4 ounces while a boxing glove is 10 ounces so that makes a difference. A lot of little intangible things.

“Of course he can box and of course he could eventually beat someone like a Tyson Fury for sure.”

Cooper knows a thing or two about the squared circle himself, having compiled a 19-3-3 record as a cruiserweight and heavyweight in a pro career that spanned more than two decades, before going on to win seven world titles as a trainer with notable names such as Vegas-based Jessie Vargas and Kazakhstan’s Beibut Shumenov.

Manchester man Fury is no stranger to facing devastating power in the ring; he prised the WBC belt from Deontay Wilder by stoppage in February last year, who is reckoned the hardest puncher ever to grace the sport and still, despite Ngannou’s worthy claims, the planet. 

The 6ft 9in fighter insisted it would take only one round for him to “smoke” Ngannou, but Cooper thinks the gulf isn’t that big, and that with some changes made to the France-based fighter’s training regimen, he could beat Fury “for sure”.

“The championship MMA fight is 25 minutes, a championship boxing fight is 36 minutes. And let me tell you something – those 11 minutes makes a big difference when you’re not getting taken down,” Cooper said.

“You can’t lay on the ground, you can’t go for submissions. It’s punching up, tying up momentarily being broken and keep punching again.

“So the anaerobic aspect has to be on point to a lot of people who do MMA think boxing is much easier until they box then they realize boxing’s way harder than people think. More people died in boxing than any other fight sport that should tell you something right now. Boxing is a very dangerous sport to be involved in.

“But to answer your question, he can do it. He can do it. Just has to be formatted in the right situation in the right time frame.”

Fury is scheduled to face fellow Brit Anthony Joshua next, after ditching the idea of a trilogy with Wilder in favour of a unification fight with the WBO, IBF and WBA heavyweight titleholder, and recently claimed a date will to be announced this week.
