Usher Herpes Lawsuit: Accuser Claims He Is Hiding His Assets For Judgement Day


The woman who is suing Usher for allegedly giving her genital herpes believes the singer is fraudulently transferring all of his assets so they can not be seized to satisfy the 20 million dollar judgement she has requested.

The woman, only identified as Jane Doe says she has reason to believe Usher is transferring his wealth to others so it can not be touched in the event he loses the case. She says on the other hand she really doesn't know he is doing that, but that she fears he might.

In legal docs the woman's lawyer Lisa West claims Usher may be up to no good because he delayed
the discovery process in the lawsuit by 90 days. The insinuation ... Usher didn't want to disclose his assets during the discovery phase in order to have the time to hide them.


Sources connected with Usher are however calling it BS, saying the claim that Usher is hiding assets is "nonsense."  The sources add the 90-day stay for discovery is automatic when the defendant files a motion to dismiss the case, which Usher has done.

When Police Uncovered Juju In A Calabar Church!


Calabar, the Cross River State capital has in the past few weeks witnessed some strange events with some astonishing rapidity, leaving many residents to wonder what has become of their once serene and peaceful city.

Beginning with the importation of poisonous snakes and hundreds of other tropical rainforest animals in the first week of August to the explosion at a tank farm which left many dead to the lynching of five persons for “one chance” robbery to the arrest of a pastor for kidnapping and slaughtering of a one year a six months old baby for ritual in the last week of the month , many residents have been left
with mouths agape.

Among the myriad of man-made strange happenings, the one that has left many wondering if this is still their beloved Calabar is the kidnap and slaughter of a one-year-old Success whose heart was found in a white basin in a church, God’s Commandment Ministry, used for ritual by the pastor of the church, Pastor Anthony Obo.


According to Faith Inyang, the twenty year old mother of the girl, on the night of 23rd August, she and other family members were sleeping in their apartment when some people armed with machetes and bottles broke the door and went into the room and abducted her little daughter who was sleeping beside her and went away.

“They beat us with machetes and abducted Success from where she was sleeping beside me and took her away and we started crying and a neighbour came out of his room to ask what was the matter and we told him some people abducted Success and he rushed to the junction and saw five of the people and they threatened him with machetes but he recognized them and called their names”.

She said the neighbour walked along with the kidnappers and when they got to the Pastors church, they entered and asked him to wait outside and he waited for a long time before leaving since they failed to come out again.

 “Before that night one of them, Okon Ekpo came to me and asked if Success was my daughter and I said yes and he told me he loved me and would take care of me and said many things before leaving which I think was surveillance because it was that night that the people came and took Success away”.

 Faith narrated to Saturday Vanguard. Search for the kidnapped girl took a whole day, this was the Thursday following the Wednesday night she was abducted, before the police at Uwanse Division in Calabar South was intimated of the incident and they stormed the church located at Okon Edak street off Atumunu Road, the same street where little Success was abducted.

A search in the church by the police led to the discovery of a heart in a white bowl, blood in a red bucket, a miniature canoe filled with charms and fetish materials, chairs covered with red and orange clothes, bags containing photographs of several men and women, keys where the pictures of men and women are tied together and several other fetish items which gave rgw place out as an occult house rather than a church.

 Following the discovery, on Friday morning an irate mob descended on a branch of the church located at 6, Abua street, off Edgerly Road and set it ablaze to avenge the killing of the girl.

When the pastor and his accomplices were paraded by the police at the Command headquarters at Diamond Hill on Tuesday following reports that he had been released , he remained defiant, claiming that the blood and heart found in his church were those of a goat and a chicken he killed during his prayer sessions .

 “The red chairs covered in white sheet and the black bag and other occult items were used by the youth of my church for art and drama presentation while the blood in the red bucket is that of the goat and chicken I killed to celebrate the dedication of my child who was one year last week”.

 He watched without displaying any emotion as the police displayed the fetish items which he had been using for his ‘pastoral” activities which more or less had the outlook of a shrine.

The place emitted awful stench.

The Cross River Police Command spokesperson, Ms Irene Ugbo said the pastor and his accomplices were arrested following a confessional statement by one of the suspects that they were sent by the pastor to abduct and kill a baby whose heart was put in a basin and handed over to him.

“The heart has been sent to the University of Calabar for forensic examination while we are investigating where the body of the baby was dumped or buried”

I Went Back To School, Rediscovered Myself, Reasons I Have Been Missing - Presh


In a chat with Saturday Beat, Presh, former partner of Kcee, has explained why he has been missing in action. According to him he went back to school, he had to rediscover himself and he also went on top. He however promised he's back tho. Explaining his absence he said;

He said, “I have been away from the Nigerian music scene because I needed to step back and rediscover myself. There were other factors I also needed to consider and put into perspective. Back then, I did not have a sponsor. What I had could have helped my career but along the line, it would
slow things down so I needed to do some shows and go on tours. I travelled to countries like Italy, Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, Malaysia and the United Kingdom for my tour. I also went to school to polish myself. I was tutored on voice grooming so that I can be good with a live band.

“When I finished the tours, there was enough money to do what I had in mind. I am also coming as a solo artiste and even though people know I sing, it is only in their subconscious. I needed to know how to go about being a solo artiste so that I would not keep doing what everybody was doing. Even though I would want to do some commercial songs, they have to be above standard. There are things that people expect from me.”

The ‘International Lady’ singer admitted that his hiatus affected his career but stated that it was for the best.

“I would say that the break has affected my career negatively and positively. However, staging a comeback at this time is perfect because if I had not gone on a break, I would have made a lot of mistakes which I would end up wasting time to fix. Now, I have come and it is time to conquer. I had to redefine myself and everything about me as Presh,” he said.

Rooney Drink Drive Girl Confesses They Kissed & Cuddled


Wayne Rooney's drink drive girl has revealed the pair kissed after the footballer asked her if her boobs were real after a ten hour booze bender.

Office worker Laura Simpson was with Wayne when he was arrested by cops after they got a taxi to her VW Beetle - she later said she was too drunk to remember where they were stopped.

The pair necked Prosecco and vodka at the fashionable Bubble Room cocktail bar - Wayne had already been boozing in Piccolino in Alderley Edge, Cheshire.

Lettings office manager Laura told MailOnline: "He kept admiring my clingy top and asking what
size they were, saying "Are they real?" We had a kiss, a hug and some banter, harmless fun. I'm not a marriage wrecker."

Simpson, a lettings officer, said Rooney was 'p***ed off' and 'really worried' when police pulled them over - though admitted she didn't recall where they were at the time.

She told The Sun: “I didn’t know what to make of it, it all happened so fast. It was a whirlwind. I don’t know if it’s because I was that drunk but he didn’t seem that drunk to me.”

It comes as a 'livid' Coleen has reportedly flown back to the UK after Wayne was charged with drink driving.

The mum-of-three, who is four months pregnant, had been on holiday in Spain with the pair's three sons, Kai, seven, Klay, four, and one-year- old Kit, when she learned of his late-night arrest.

'My marriage was a useless mistake' - Ghanaian comedian, Funny Face says he nearly committed suicide


Ghanaian comedian, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng popularly known as Funny Face has opened up about his failed marriage to Elisabeth Adjoa Ntim.

Funny Face in a recent interview with UTV’s Wofa Kwesi revealed that his ex-wife’s hefty behind and hips were what lured him into marrying her which turned out to be a mistake he greatly regrets.


In his words, 'my marriage was a useless mistake. I didn’t do my homework well before marrying her, big buttocks and a** and hips pushed me into marrying her'.


He said a tracker he installed in his ex-wife’s car recorded all her sins, which he has decided not to speak about since January 2016.  According to him, his ex-wife’s sins forced him to “almost commit suicide but the gun wouldn’t shoot” when he pulled the trigger.  “What I’ve been through is worse than killing. I’ve moved on, but I’m hurt because of the lies people are peddling about me,” he said.

Lagos Seals Substandard Private Schools


The Lagos State Government has sealed off a number of substandard private schools in its six education districts.

The schools were shut during an enforcement exercise by the Office of Education Quality Assurance, Lagos State Ministry of Education recently.

Punch correspondent learnt that while some of the schools were shut indefinitely, some were instructed to relocate to more conducive locations.

According to a statement by the Director-General, OEQA, Mrs. Ronke Soyombo, the affected schools operated below minimum operational guidelines of the state government in providing quality
teaching and learning in a standardised environment.

She said, “The Deputy-Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Idiat Adebule, frowns on the operation of unapproved schools or schools located within residential buildings, inadequate classrooms and toilet facilities as well as school premises being used as a church.

“Other elements of disaffection include schools with structural defects and operating in unkempt environment not conducive for effective teaching and learning.’’

Adding that the enforcement exercise was continuous, Soyombo urged prospective school owners to obtain guidelines for the establishment of schools from the ministry.

“We are also advising owners of schools where closure and relocation notice were served to desist from removing the said notices as such attracts sanctions and prosecution by the state government. Parents are also advised to desist from taking their wards to substandard private schools.

“The Lagos State Government is committed to preparing future leaders to move the state forward. A conducive and standardised environment, quality teaching and learning, monitoring and evaluation of schools, safeguarding and child protection practice remain the prerequisite for approval of schools in the state,’’ she added.

Too Late For Nigeria To Disintegrate, Says Fayose


The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said it is too late for Nigeria to break up, calling for dialogue to resolve various agitations in the country.

Fayose said this while reacting to Wednesday’s meeting the governors of the South-East states had with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

He said the meeting had provided a veritable platform, which all Igbo must key into otherwise they would remain guinea pig in Nigeria.

The governor, who appealed to the Federal Government to allow political solutions to agitations by
Nigerians as against the use of brute force said, he remained “committed to the call for full and total restructuring of Nigeria through dialogue and negotiation because it is too late for Nigeria to disintegrate.”

According to a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Thursday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said he was “particularly glad that South-East governors have come to the realisation that they cannot ignore their own in times like this as agitation is normal and must not be ignored, although the approach should be handled with caution.”

Fayose blamed the actions and utterances of President Muhammadu Buhari for the agitations going on in the country.

“The father figure of this country is President Buhari and if his language does not represent unity, there will be agitations like we are witnessing now.

“A father figure rallies even the bad boys in his house. The utterances and actions of Buhari when he became President were against the unity of this country.

“How can a president say that he will only attend to the needs of those who gave him 97 per cent vote and neglect others who didn’t vote for him?

“For Nigeria to move forward and in unity; there must be no sectionalism, there must be no oppression and there must be justice and equity.”

The governor commended the northern leaders for standing up to ensure that the Arewa youths’ quit notice against the Igbo in the North was resolved and withdrawn without necessarily arresting and detaining anyone.

Saying that the same could be achieved by the Igbo leaders, he warned that arresting or re-arresting Kanu “may be counter-productive as it may be perceived as vilification of the entire South-East geopolitical zone, not necessarily Kanu as a person.”

Tattoo: Another Victim Accuses Rivers Command Of Torture, Extortion


While Nigerians have continued to condemn the alleged torture of an undergraduate of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Imo State, Chioma Pius, by some policemen attached to the Rivers State Police Command for having tattoo on her body, another victim of a similar attack has spoken up.

The victim, Dereck Triggs, a paint producer, told Punch Metro that prior to Pius’ ordeal, the car he was travelling in was stopped by the same set of policemen, who accused one of the occupants of wearing a tattoo.

He claimed that all occupants in the car, except his sister, was locked up in the cops’ mobile cell,
adding that they were all released after payment of N20,000.

Punch Metro had reported that Pius was travelling from Bayelsa State to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Monday, when her car was stopped at Elebrada Junction, in the Emohua area of Rivers State.

The policemen were alleged to have accused her of having tattoos on her body and battered her with a gun and punches, among others.

She was released after the intervention of policemen from another checkpoint along the road.

Triggs, who narrated his experience to our correspondent on Thursday after reading about Pius’ ordeal, said he and his siblings were attacked at the same junction on Wednesday, August 16, 2017.

He said, “There were four of us in the car, including my siblings and a friend. We were coming from Benin and heading to Port Harcourt, where we work. Everything was fine until we got to the police checkpoint close to the Emohua council area around 12.04am. The policemen were about six in number.

“They asked to see the vehicle documents, which were released to them. The policemen, however, observed that the temporary driving licence of my brother, who drove the car, had expired. He told them that he had yet to get the permanent one.

“They asked us to park, after which they searched the car. When they didn’t find anything, one of them noticed my friend had a tattoo on one of his hands and they said we were all kidnappers and robbers.”

Triggs said he expressed reservation over the comment, which angered the policemen who punched and handcuffed him.

He said the officers also handcuffed another sibling of his, but held his sister in custody.

“My elder brother drove away in the car to seek help from some policemen at another checkpoint. He told them what was happening and asked for their help. They asked him to drive back and settle with the cops.

“When he drove back, the policemen handcuffed him as well and threw him into their mobile cell, where they had already kept me, my younger brother and the friend who had the tattoo,” he added.

Punch Metro learnt that the policemen, after holding the siblings and friend for some time, asked the man with the tattoo, what he could offer them.

The man was said to have offered N20,000, which they accepted.

“He asked them to allow him drive the car to where he could withdraw, but they refused, saying he should take a cab.

“They stopped a cab driver, and after searching the cab, asked the man to settle them. He gave them some money. They then asked him to take my friend to where he could withdraw money for them.

“He didn’t see any ATM point until he got to Choba. He spent about one hour to get back and pay them. I got the number plate of their van, NPF 4982C AKU PH.  They handcuffed us, seized our phones, and humiliated us over nothing. We didn’t commit any crime,” he added.

Triggs said after the incident, he contacted the Police Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit, adding that more than two weeks afterwards, he had yet to get any feedback.

The Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, Omoni Nnmadi, said he was not aware of Triggs’ case, urging him to identify the cops.

He, however, said the command had started investigation into Pius’ alleged torture.

“We have started investigation to know what truly transpired. All the parties involved have been invited and we will get to the root of the case,” he said.

The Head of the Police Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit, Abuja, Abayomi Sogunle, also said Pius’ alleged torture  was being treated, promising to disclose findings of the police at the end of investigations.

We Now See Clearly, PDP Members Say As 8,500 Defect To APC


No fewer than 8,500 members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State, yesterday, defected to All Progressives Congress, APC, at a rally organised in Port Harcourt by a former pro-PDP group called I see You.

National Leader of I See You group, Mr. Chizi Nyeomasila, said the rally was a forum for local government executives of the group to defect, adding that the group will also organise rallies in the various local government areas for members at ward levels to defect.

He said at the end of the programme at the local government areas, a total of 108,000 of its members
would have formally crossed over to APC. He said they had to leave PDP when they realised that APC had what he termed “a better programme for the state.”

“PDP is a failure in the state. We were there but have now seen that APC will serve the common good of the state better. Like Paul in the Bible, we now see clearly,” he added.

Billionaire Property Mogul's Daughter Ties The Knot In Breathtaking $25m Italian Wedding


The daughter of New York's 'King of Retail' Jeff Sutton, married in a sunset ceremony overlooking the Adriatic Sea today watched by of over 400 friends and family.

Renee Sutton and her fiancée Eliot Cohen wed in a traditional Jewish ceremony following a four-day build up to the big event.

Her billionaire father Jeff – the 522nd richest man in the world – is said to have spent $25 million on
the wedding extravaganza making it one of the most expensive ever staged.

The property mogul had arrived for the ceremony with his daughter in a horse drawn carriage.

Friends and family – who had been flown to the Italian resort of Monopoli on the Puglia coast by chartered plane from New York – took their seats on a wooden platform built on a rocky outcrop.

A choir sang modern love songs as they waited for the service to begin.

The couple were wed in a traditional Jewish ceremony standing beneath a chuppah – a wedding canopy that symbolizes a new home being created by the union.

The newly weds were cheered as they walked between rows of guests past Saint Stefano Abbey and made their way to the reception being held on a nearby beach

Workmen had spent the last week transforming the small curved sandy beach into a party area complete with a dance floor.

More than 100 locals gathered to watch the ceremony, which began after 6pm local time (noon in New York) .

Many had been drawn by rumors in the Italian press that Madonna or Lady Gaga were to perform for the couple at their wedding party.

The rumors turned out to be false as did speculation that Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton would be attending the nuptials.

A Boeing 757 made two trips and a Boeing 747 chartered from United Airlines brought the bride and groom along with close family members.

Each of the 13,000 round trips from New York to Bari cost $700,000.

As the 522nd richest man in the world with a fortune of $3.6 billion no expense was spared for the lavish wedding.

More than eight tons of flowers had been flown in from Holland and the 400 guests stayed at a luxury five star resort where rooms start at over $500 a night.

Sutton had also hired beach clubs to keep guests entertained with unlimited food and drink.

More than 50 mini buses were hired for the entire week to ferry guests around.

Teams of security men were also flown over from New York as were the musicians providing the evening's entertainment.

Guests stayed at the exclusive Borgano Egnazia resort in the town of Fasano.

L'Oreal's 1st Transgender Model Blasts 'ALL White People' In Extraordinary Facebook Rant


With a dizzying fanfare, she was brought in as the 'face of modern diversity'.

But days after she was announced as L'Oreal's first transgender model, Munroe Bergdorf launched an extraordinary rant declaring all white people racist.

The 29-year-old British star, who appeared in the cosmetic giant's recent '#allworthit' campaign alongside Cheryl Cole and Katie Piper, now faces being dropped from her lucrative new role.

In a lengthy Facebook rant, she wrote: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence
of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.

'Because most of ya'll don't even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s***.

'Come see me when you realise that racism isn't learned, it's inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege.

'Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth… then we can talk.

'Until then stay acting shocked about how the world continues to stay f***** at the hands of your ancestors and your heads that remain buried in the sand with hands over your ears.'

The stars of the advertising campaign were selected by L'Oreal as part of its ongoing drive to celebrate diversity and inclusivity in beauty.

Earlier this year the company, which also uses Helen Mirren as one of its regular models, claimed its focus on diversity had pushed sales and led people to reappraise the brand. It also recently launched a mentoring initiative in partnership with The Prince's Trust, which aims to help young people become more confident.

Last night a company insider said: 'L'Oreal do not in any way condone or agree with Munroe's comments. Obviously this is all highly embarrassing and very much goes against message.

'To drop her now would be something of a PR disaster but, at the same time, they cannot be seen to be endorsing any kind of racism or extremism. Conversations about her future are taking place.'

Miss Bergdorf, who was born a boy called Ian, works as a DJ and trans activist in addition to her modelling. She began living as a woman at the age of 18 but was prescribed hormones by a doctor only four years ago.

The London-raised campaigner recently spoke of how she hopes to play a part in the changing face of the beauty industry.

Brooklyn Beckham Poses With Pistol In New Shoot


The 18-year-old New York-based photography student has happily posed for the camera in what he described on his Instagram as a 'cool double shoot', but some fans were less impressed as one user penned: 'A gun? Really? What an idiot'.

The gun shot appeared to be particularly provocative as users soon swarmed the comments section to
slam the use of a weapon in the images.

Fans penned: 'Can't approve of the gun ones. never necessary... Heyy put that gun down !!... Why the gun? What is your reason to use something that causes so much destruction and despair?
'Depicting a kid who has been brought up with such privilege, who couldn't possibly have first hand experience of the consequences that this type of 'cool' gang image can have on vulnerable children following him?'

But despite the critisms, it didn;t make Brooklyn Beckham take down the particular photo.
