Some of the most famous people in the world have the most unlikely siblings. We uncover the brothers and sisters you may never have known existed.

Last week, it was reported that Democratic presidental nominee Barack Obama's brother is living in a hut in the town of Huruma, on the outskirts of Nairobi. His name is George Hussein Onyango Obama and he claims to live on less than a dollar a month. He prefers living in privacy saying, "If anyone says something about my surname, I say we aren't related."

As for the elections in George Obama's town? He said, "Huruma is a tough place--last January, during the elections, there was rioting and six people were hacked to death. The police don't even arrest you, they just shoot you... I have seen two of my friends killed. I have scars from defending myself with my fists. I am good with my fists."

George and his famous brother have only met twice. The candidate mentions him very briefly in his autobiography.

Do you have a sibling living a completely different life? Do tell...

I have a brother and sister that I met for the first and only time it’ll be two years ago this next new year’s. We grew up worlds apart. I would love to have more of a relationship with them, but sadly, the worlds in which we grew up in, and my sister, still growing up in, are just much too different.

one can love a father but may not be proud of him.
Obama ‘s case may be an example just as one loves a country but may not be proud of it. In the case of Hannity, let him speak. EXPOSE his family scandals so he can shut up about the President-elect and Michelle Obama’s statement. Better still, fire some of the guys on WMAL630 because they are the most unproductive bunch in today’s economic crisis earning big money from indoctrinating hatred and fear on the low intellects
