It’s Time To Cry: Mom Fighting Cancer Helps Her Son Meet His Hero, Ringo Starr

Ringo Fan
Ringo's Biggest Fan

Mom Cali Tobias has been diagnosed with breast cancer four times, and is now facing ovarian cancer. She told ABC News, “I need to make sure I have as many fun memories with my kids as I can while I’m still here.” To do that, she arranged for her son King, a Beatles superfan, to meet Ringo Starr. King, 5, is a musician himself and can play some of the Beatles’ hits on his guitar. When Cali got tickets to Ringo’s concert in San Jose, California, this month, she and King were invited backstage. Ringo greeted King with a big hug, and he even got to play the legend’s drums! So sweet. [Huffington Post]

Ringo Starr (of the famed band The Beatles, perhaps you’ve heard of them) is her father. Brittany claimed he is in permanent hiding while another man impersonates him in the public eye.

According to Brittany, her dad, Ringo Starr (real name: Richard Starkey), signed a contract to have another man take his identity as Ringo Starr after John Lennon was shot. And bless FOX for taking us to meet her pops, the “real” Ringo. He turned out to be a toothless man with no discernible British accent in a Sgt. costume. Somehow, my gut tells me delusion runs in the family. At least judging from Brittany’s dance skills. These kinds of segments are exactly why I watch reality TV before bed. Keep reading »
