‘Pint sized man’, 23, trapped in the body of a toddler because of mystery condition which has baffled doctors!

Manpreet Singh has not grown since he was less than a year old

A 23-year-old man has not grown since he was a baby – and medics are still baffled by the medical condition he suffers from.

Manpreet Singh has been branded the ‘pint sized man’ by his neighbours, as he has to be carried around like a toddler by his aunt.

It is not known why Manpreet, from Punjab in India, stopped growing before he could walk or talk.

He was a healthy baby when he was born in 1995, but is now completely dependent on his aunt, Lakhwinder Kaur, 42.

Doctors initially told his father Jagtar, 50, a small-time farmer, that he would start growing again.

But when that didn’t happen, the doctors suggested that it could be a hormone disorder.

Manpreet has one sister, Jaspreet who has just turned 17 and a brother Mangaldeep. Both of them are physically and mentally developed.

MK Bhadu, a medical officer at a state-run facility at Hisar, said: “The patient’s growth stopped due to some hormonal imbalance.

“A child begins to develop mentally and physically from the age of three. If his body is not developing, the parents should take him to a better medical facility and get him treated.”

Scientists, however, believe Manpreet could have Laron Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that is believed to have affected just 300 people across the globe.

A crowdfunding page has been launched to help support his medical treatment.

Pop Singer Janelle Monae Just CAME OUT . . . As a LESBIAN!! (Dating Tessa Thompson)!

MTO News first broke the news that pop singer Janelle Monae is gay, and that she’s dating actress Tessa Thompson.

Well Janelle has finally admitted it.

Here’s what she told Entertainment Weekly in a new article, “Being a queer black woman in America,” she says, taking a breath as she comes out, “someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker.”

She initially identified as bisexual, she clarifies, “but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

Janelle is currently dating, and in love, with actress Tessa Thompson.

Tessa spoke on her relationship with Janelle a few months ago and said,

“Janelle and I have been really close. We’ve been really good friends at this point for about three and a half years,” the Thor: Ragnarok star told ET in February. “I’m so lucky to have her in my life. I met her in an audition!”

The 34-year-old actress added that some consider “Make Me Feel” to be a “bisexual anthem.”

“If it makes people feel liberated in their skin and feel closer to who they are, then I think we did our job,” she said of the song and video.

“I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you,” she says. “This album is for you. Be proud.”
