Rihanna Says She Hopes Drake Learns Lesson From Jhonni Blaze Drama

Rihanna, 26, desperately hopes that the allegations that Texas stripper Jhonni Blaze reportedly filed against her ex-boyfriend Drake, 27, are untrue — and now we know why! A source tells EXCLUSIVELY how Riri “doesn’t want to see Drake get hurt,” but thinks he “should know better” and “learn something” from this.
Rihanna has a very strong reaction to the allegations that a Texas stripper reportedly filed against Drake, saying he allegedly “threatened her life” after they had a sexual fling.
“It’s a terrible situation for him and it’s not even funny, that’s the sad part. She wants to laugh at it but it’s so serious she can’t,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY. Rihanna still has feelings for the rapper.

“She still loves him. She still cares about him and doesn’t want to see him get hurt. But thing is – he left her. That still stings,” our source says. While Riri hopes the allegations are totally untrue, she thinks Drake having any relations with strippers is a downgrade.
“But what’s the most upsetting is that he downgraded, big time. He didn’t go from a Bugati to a Bentley, that part she would get. But he went from a Bugati to the Number 2 bus. A stripper? Like for real? And now, look at what’s happening to him,” our source reveals. “It’s messed up and she thinks he should know better but still, she thinks it’s sad and awful. No shade though. She’s hoping all this sh*t isn’t even true.”

LMAO @ “no shade though” after all that isht she just talked

Rita Ora Rocks fishnet skirt and tiny knickers on date with Ricky Hilfiger

Rita Ora has made some seriously questionable outfit choices of late, but this is pushing it a whole new level.
The wacky singer attempted to pull this fishnet number off as a skirt as she headed on a night out with boyfriend Ricky Hilfiger and Pixie Geldof at Cirque le Soir nightclub in London.
Reets held nothing back as she showed off her bare bum in jewelled fishnet skirt and tiny black knickers.
She covered up (her top half) in a big green and black studded biker jacket and wore her hair in a top knot for a really out-there- look.
Still, it gave us all a chance to ogle over her ridiculously toned legs, and no doubt her other half Ricky loved her outfit even more.
She had been supporting Kate Moss as the supermodel launched her new boob-moulded champagne glasses, and showed off the full loutfit as she posted a photo of the pair hugging.

Chao upped the reward, hoping to find a more

Salem Ayash, a poet from the city of Taiz, did not outline any deadline for his daughter's suitor to fulfill this strange (for the Yemeni traditional society) request of million Facebook "likes" for his profile page.

Security Guard and a Trader Nab By National Drug Law Enforcement Agency

The Enugu State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has arrested two suspected drug traffickers with 5.1 kilogrammes of powdery substances that tested positive for cocaine.

It was learnt that the agency’s operatives arrested the suspects – Okoye Matthew and Dominic Igwe – at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, during the inward screening of passengers on board an Ethiopian airline.
Our correspondent gathered that 34-year-old Matthew, a security guard in South Africa, was caught with the drug weighing 1.5kg.
The guard told investigators that he had brought the drug hidden in a handbag for his friend.
He said, “I work as a security guard in South Africa. It was my friend in Nigeria that requested the drug. My role is to bring it and he will reward me.”
In his confession, Igwe, 29, said he was sponsored to traffick the 3.6kg drug concealed inside folders from Brazil by a baron whose name he had yet to divulge to the operatives.

The Ebonyi-born trader added that he had wanted to use the expected proceed to clear his debts and boost his business.
“I am a trader but I am unable to pay my rent. My capital has dwindled over the years to the extent that I am in debts. I was sponsored to Sao-Paulo, Brazil to bring cocaine. I regret my involvement,” he said.
The NDLEA Commander at the airport, Mr. Udoh Nsikak-Abasi, said the arrests were made after a thorough search.
He said, “Matthew was arrested with 1.5kg of cocaine hidden inside hand bags while Igwe was found in possession of 3.6kg of cocaine concealed inside three folders. Mathew holds passport number A04483481 while Igwe has A02375991 as his passport number. The total weight of the seized drugs is 5.1kg.”
While commending the officials for the interception, the agency’s boss, Mr. Ahmadu Giade, directed the Enugu Airport Command to beef up its security checks.
He said, “This arrest is a welcome development because we must eradicate illicit drugs from our country. I want the commander to intensify security checks and ensure the interception of narcotics at the Enugu Airport.”

 Dame Patience Jonathan was on Wednesday decorated as “Mother Theresa of Today’’ by the Ladies of St. Mulumba (LSM) of the Catholic Church of Nigeria.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Dame Patience Jonathan was decorated because of the humanitarian works done through her pet project, the Women for Change and Development Initiative (W4CDI).

Ngor Nwachukwu, the President of LSM, decorated her when she led its members on a courtesy visit to the first lady at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

“W4CDI has recorded positive changes in the society; there is a strong wind of change blowing off poverty, disease, hunger.

“And bringing along empowerment and sustaining hope for women in particular and to all in general.”

Nwachukwu, who also commended the first lady for her support to the president, described her role as a “family model’’ in line with the advocacy of Pope Francis.

In her remark, Jonathan commended them for their visit, saying  it was a sign of solidarity and support, especially for the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan.

She also thanked the group for its acknowledgment of her “modest contributions to the society with this decoration as Mother Theresa of Today.

“It was Mother Theresa of old who said ‘being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody I think that is a much greater hunger, a greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat’.

“This saying has been my propelling force for the advocacy and policy dialogue to enhance the status of women in the society.

“Giving hope to the despaired, relief for the sick, training and empowerment for youths and women.’’

Jonathan reiterated the need to imbibe peace in their daily endeavours.

“As wives, mothers and sisters, we have important roles to play in moving Nigeria forward on the path of peace and development.

“As mothers and role models, we owe it a duty to our families and our nation to build our homes as well as the needed change in our communities,’’ she said.

NAN reports that other past decorations on the first lady included Epitome of Justice and Peace, Phenomenal Woman of Substance, Dorcas and Esther of Old, among others.

The LSM, which was established in 1978, has more than 10,000 members across the country.
