Brit, TV celebrity with seven wives and 19 children, dies after collapsing in John

Philip Sharp, 60, originally from Stanmore, north London, died in his Kenya home, an inquest in Hatfield, Hertfordshire heard.
He appeared in documentaries on the BBC and Channel 5 about his life.
He was a polyamorous rabbi with seven wives and at least 19 children.
He’s supposed to have penned a message the day before he died.
The note contained some rough detail on what he would leave behind for his family, adding that it wasn’t much, before concluding with, love to you all.
Philip Sharp was born in Stanmore, north London, but his duties as a preacher took him across the globe.
He was the subject of documentaries including Channel 5’s The Girl with Seven Mums in 2015.
The show headlined his daughter, who was then 10 years old, demonstrating what it was like to grow up with numerous maternal figures.
In 2006, he appeared in a BBC documentary called Philip and His Seven Wives.
It documented his life where he said he was told by God he was to become a Hebrew King and, like a good patriarch, take many wives.
In 2018, he appeared on ITV’s This Morning where he was questioned by hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford and forced to defend his lifestyle.
It’s believed he had seven wives and at least 19 children, and he once claimed God spoke to him to reveal polygamy was part of a divine plan.
At the time of his demise in October 2019, he’d been living in Nairobi, Kentya for more than two years.
The Old Court House in Hatfield, Hertfordshire was told he went to the lavatory at home and after failing to materialize some time later, a relation went to check on him.
The family member could hear him groaning and booted down the door to find he’d collapsed.
He was taken to hospital in Kenya where he was declared dead on October 28, 2019.
Senior Coroner Geoffrey Sullivan had restricted information around the full circumstances of his demise but had acquired a signed death certificate.
The medical cause of death was given as respiratory failure with suspected organophosphate poisoning, although the coroner said the evidence he had was limited.
He added that what he didn’t have was any detail really leading directly to the happenings of that day, the events leading up to him going to the toilet when he was found.
He also didn’t have any specific cause of death, information about prior existing medical problems and anything about where and when the note was found, although such details would typically be assessed during a police inquiry, but he had no specifics surrounding that from officials in Kenya.
Due to the existence of the note, the coroner considered the possibility of suicide.
Although he said there’s some substantiation to confirm that, there wasn’t enough proof to uphold the legal standard. For that reason, the coroner registered an open outcome.
The inquest heard the coroner’s office had attempted to get more information from the Kenyan authorities, but it wasn’t forthcoming.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
