Actress Katie Holmes, 33 has apparently filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, 49, her husband of five years, according to reports received People magazine and TMZ. The paperwork was filed anonymously in New York while Cruise has been in Iceland filming “Oblivion.” Holmes has filed for sole custody of the couple’s only child, Suri, 6, and is seeking what reports are calling a “suitable amount” in child support.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” said Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe in a statement Friday. Cruise, FORBES No. 9 Most Powerful Celebrity who pulled in $75 million in the last year, had a much more candid response. His rep told People: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened.”

 
Wait let me get this straight RKELLY was married with kids? The answer to that is simply yes! And guess what the name of the show is! Yep you guessed it Hollywood Exes!


"It is a true sisterhood. There is true love between us … It's just a bond we have that is unbreakable," Andrea Kelly, R. Kelly's former spouse, tells me on the set of "New York Live."

"The biggest misconception is that you married your ex for their money, which is an insult to them because they are bringing so much [more] to the table than just the money and the fame," adds Sheree Fletcher, who was once married to Will Smith. "These are great men. It just didn't work out between us."

A massive wildfile raging just outside of Colorado Springs, Colo., doubled in size between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.



The flames now cover more than 24 square miles — roughly the size of Manhattan — in and around the Waldo Canyon area. Thirty-two-thousand residents have been ordered to flee their homes for safer ground, while an unknown number of houses have already been destroyed, according to an Associated Press report. Despite firefighter’s efforts on the ground and in the air, the blaze continues to spread due to hot, dry and windy weather.

 

This is really sad, and truly  unbelievable! Scariest fire pictures I have ever seen!!


She is gorgeous terribly, brilliant and smart.  You see, Tolu Olubunmi was brought to the United States from Nigeria when she was 14, graduated from college seven years later with a chemical engineering degree, and couldn't get hired because of her status as an illegal immigrant. Here is her story in this video!


President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday approved the sack of the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Austen Oniwon and the appointment of Andrew Yakubu as the new helmsman of the corporation.

The change of the NNPC management team was disclosed in a press statement signed by the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati.

The president also approved the appointment of Victor Briggs as the new Managing Director of the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).
According to the statement, the decision to restructure the NNPC was in a bid to strengthen the on-going reforms and transformation of Nigeria’s Petroleum sector.

Is this a welcome change? What are your thoughts?
Is she crazy or what, it is going to be really hot in Atlanta

History was made earlier this week at Johns Hopkins University when 22 year-old Emmanuel Ohuabunwa graduated from John Hopkins University,  with a grade point of 3.98 out of 4.0 in Neurosciences.

Ohuabunwa who hails from Abia State, has been able to make the nation proud and with his efforts has won himself a scholarship to Yale University to get a degree in Medicine.

He has also become a member of Phi Beta Kappa Society, a prestigious honor group that features membership of 17 US Presidents, 37 US Supreme Court Justices, and 136 Nobel Prize winners.

Kim Kardashian denied that her marriage to Kris Humphries was a hoax, saying she was left utterly depressed afterwards and her fanbase was strong enough without having to stage drama for ratings.



In a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey, the reality star opened up about the doomed romance.
Kim Kardashian denied that her marriage to Kris Humphries was a hoax, saying she was left utterly depressed afterwards and her fanbase was strong enough without having to stage drama for ratings.



In a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey, the reality star opened up about the doomed romance.

She stressed that she still has a 'place in my heart' for her former basketball player beau, yet after moving in together it dawned on her that married life was 'not for me'.

The kardashians also said they have never felt exploited by their mother. Kim claims she told her mother when she wanted to have sex for the first time she actually came out and told her mother this is what she told Oprah. Oprah asked, " you think you're famous for what?" Kim responds with she think she's famous for having a TV show.

What should people know about the kardashian family?

We work hard, we face what we are doing seriously.
Mother was asked about the sex tape with ray jay
She said she cried Herself to sleep. I love you to Kim.
I know I'm exactly what I want to be on a new I love you exactly what I'm doing
Is Kanye west new fairytale Oprah asks Kim Kardashian?

Kim says she did not marry for ratings when she married Kris Humpfries

Kim claims she didn't spend more than a full week with the ex. they never lived together.
Her mom asked before the wedding if she wanted out?She also says she was bored being married to Kris Humphries.

Would you be where you are had there not been a sex tape?

You know that is how I was introduced to the world so I had to work 10 times harder to show who I really am. This is something I've got to live with for the rest of my life humiliating my family. it is something I wish I could take back.

Do you regret the tape? if I known better I would not have done it

When asked will the show be as successful if they were not beautiful ?
'I think it has to do with us, the curves, the dark hair - I think it was a combination.

'I remember when the wave of Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek and these beautiful Hispanic women came into light, and I looked up to them and I loved them, but I was like, "Where are Middle Eastern women?" I think we took that category or helped broaden that.'

The hilarious Kola Boof saga just took another turn! Djimon Hounsou Responds To Break-Up Rumors! Talking to global grind, here is what he had to say about the ongoing question whether or not his "MARRIAGE" is on the rocks!

kimora responds to kola boof
It has come to my attention vicious lies and stories are being spread about myself and my family. I do not know, nor have I ever met this person. To that extent any and all claims are totally fabricated and for the press to be spreading these lies is irresponsible on their part. I am a man of integrity and would never betray my wife or my family.

So there you have it all he has never met Kola Boof and his marriage is very much intact!

video platform video management video solutions video player



Do you think the arrest was justified??

When asked if she was the reason Kimora Lee Simons of the babyphat fame and Djimon broke up. Kola Boof had this to say


Boof’s response: “I am the reason that they broke up.”
The author of “Diary of a Lost Girl: The Autobiography of Kola Boof” — in which she chronicled her in Laden connection — told us via email: “I have slept with Djimon Hounsou throughout his marriage to Kimora Lee Simmons,” adding: “I don’t think it’s a secret to people in Los Angeles.”
(Simmons and Hounsou, who have a 3-year-old son Kenzo , reportedly are not legally married.)
Boof was clear-cut about her reasons for the alleged affair.
“I am not in love with Djimon Hounsou & he is not in love with me,” she wrote. “The only reason I had sex with him was to get revenge on Kimora.”
Boof wrote that her beef with Simmons stems from something that happened while she was being treated for “brain cancer” at the Loma Linda Cancer Center in 2008.


Wow brain Cancer? That is serious. She must be lucky to still be alive abi?
 

A Tribute to Maimuna Anyene


By Ebun Onagoruwa

The life and spirit of Maimuna Anyene, who perished along with her husband, four children, mother, and two cousins in the crash of a Dana Air plane Sunday in Lagos, Nigeria, is remembered in this essay written by her best friend.

Have you done a “Maimuna”?

It has been 3 days since I lost my best friend and sister (Maimuna Anyene), my Godson (Kamsi), Kayine, Kayima, Noah, Onyeka and Aunty Mijindadi. Somehow in my 34 years, I have been shielded from grief so I am in an unfamiliar and very strange place. Intense, numbing pain (60%); uncontrollable tears (35%); logic, rational calm (5%). I am currently in a 5% moment. However, this note is not about me or how I feel. It is all about Maimuna and her family. Not the way they died, but the way they lived. My purpose for writing this (and I struggled about whether to post on FB) is to share lessons I have learnt from her life in the last 24 years I’ve known her and hope her life can continue to inspire others for good.
Boeing Co. (BA),the  maker of the ill fated MD-83 airliner that crashed in in Iju Lagos, Nigeria on June 3, just got sued in Chicago, United States by the husband and daughter of one of the 153 people aboard the jet who died.



Bloomberg reports

We are putting together an oracle tutorial for database administrators with a partner company.

This just in the victims of the Dana air crash that data crash actually paid $100,000 by Lloyd's of London
Lloyd's of London spokesperson said international law and standards stipulate that the sum of $30,000 must be paid to each victims family would team 30 days of the accident as initial payment the ceiling of which is $100,000 should be paid to the family after they have completed all requirements expected of them by law.

Here is the video you have been waiting for! We love weddings on Naijagal.
We can say it is a combination of Christian AND Muslim Values. Absolutely beautiful
The word says angels watch over us, this could certainly be said about the case of Omonigho Akinsanya. She was meant to board the ill fated flight. but what occurred according to sources stopped that! Sunday had a limited number of flights available. Her name even came up on the manifest.



Those wanting to travel on Sunday crowded against each other, trying to obtain seats on the limited number of flights available. Omonigho Akinsanya was trying to travel back home to Lagos with her 5-year-old son Moyo after visiting her sister. She got angry when a man jumped the line and got one of the last tickets available on the Dana flight. Sadly. Her other sister, Eseoghene Okor, got a seat and boarded the flight. The man's rudeness saved the lives of Akinsanya and her little boy 

The man who jumped the line saved her and her son.


This just in, Singer Lauryn Hill did not pay her taxes in the past three years and just got charged today for failing to pay  her taxes a federal offence. If guilty she could face up to three years in prison!!

image?.Caption


According to MTV

Fourteen years after she released her classic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the IRS is teaching the former Fugees singer a lesson on the importance of filing her taxes. Lauryn Hill was charged Thursday (June 7) with failing to file three years of income-tax returns, and now the government is looking to settle the score.
A press release issued to MTV News states that Hill, who owns four different corporations, makes most of her money from music and film royalties. In the three years in which Hill failed to file, the IRS estimates that she's earned more than $1.6 million in income. If found guilty, she could face up to three years in prison and a $300,000 fine.

Goodness it has not been a good year for Lauryn how has it? First alleged issues with the father of her five children now this?? Not good!
Looks like the royals had too much fun last night judging from our picture of the day
Then again the festivities at the queens 60th jubilee celebration can be quite tiring but hey it certainly was worth it!

Dana airline pilot has been identified as peter Waxtan who just so happens to be a former Spirit airlines pilot from Florida. It is so sad that such a young vibrant man and a very good pilot who tried his best to save the airline from crashing could have unfortunately been handed a plane that was definitely not a awarding all was it we doubt it was.
No one could've asked for anything less but the federal government just just revoked the Dana and I like license. If that's a shame that even after such a deadly crash , the airline could not even come out with a page showing condolences to the crash victims and their families ! It is about time the license it revoked and our
opinion they should never get their license back.
Yes Octomom is now a stripper this according to TMZ

That's right ... sources close to Octo
tell TMZ she has booked a gig at T's Lounge in West Palm Beach, FL for her first stint as a stripper. We're told Octomom will do two shows a night from July 11-15.

But it's not all good news -- or maybe it is -- because we're told that while T's Lounge is all-nude, Octo will only be going topless. And if you were hoping to take Octo back to the champagne room, that's not going to happen -- she won't be doing lap dances.

According to our sources, Octo has felt "sexually liberated" since filming her solo porn (due out this summer) and decided stripping would be a good way to promote the upcoming video.

Seriously in my opinion aren't there other ways to help earn a living to take of your kids?

This just in the Dana air flight was apparently flown by an Americn pilot w
Crews ploughed through the wreckage of an airliner Monday hoping to recover the data recorders to piece together what exactly brought down a Dana Air flight in Lagos, killing all 153 people aboard and at least 10 on the ground.

The pilot of the doomed flight that crashed in a residential neighborhood in Lagos, Nigeria, is an American, according to Oscar Wason, the airline's director of flight operations. The co-pilot is from India, while the engineer is from Indonesia, he said. Wason did not release their identities.

The rescue effort turned to the recovery of bodies in the West African nation's most populous city after the director of Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency said early Monday there were no survivors of the crash.

The death toll was likely to increase as crews searched through the rubble of a two-story residential building struck by the McDonnell Douglas MD-83 on Sunday.

It was unclear how many people were inside the building and on the street outside at the time of the crash, Mohammad Sani Sidi, the emergency management director, told CNN from the crash site.

The Dana Air flight from the Nigerian capital of Abuja crashed at 3:43 p.m. (10:43 a.m. ET) in the Lagos neighborhood of Iju Ishaga, just north of Murtala Muhammed International Airport, according to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.

By daybreak, crews working through the night had recovered at least 80 bodies, including 10 believed to be residents, Sidi said.

Among the dead are six Chinese citizens who were on board the flight, the Chinese Embassy in Nigeria said Monday.

Two of the passengers that died in the plane crash probably go down as one of the saddest events to occur in Nigeria happens to be the pastor Ayodeji Cole and his wife Ngozi Cole of the Trem Vision house.
The sad story of a plane crash in Lagos Nigeria happened today I usually try to write about and explain explain positive things about the country but now I doubt I can do that anymore. I have to be real this is very painful for me I'm sure to a lot of people in the country. I do not understand why people's lives Are taken for granted.

Why jeopardize the lives of a 152 people not including the poor who live in the buildings where the plane crashed occurred. whoever gave the directive for the plane to fly should be questioned immediately into the families that lost loved ones we pray you will get the strength to go on.Onita

In  an interview granted to vanguard, Charly Boy refutes the notion that he is gay AND explains his relationship with DERENLE! Hmm who would have thought? Not us right??



In his words, “‘I’m not concerned about name calling, but the way and manner in which we apply professionalism in whatever we are doing. If I’m gay, I will fight for the right of homosexuals. I am not gay and I am not part of any organisation called the illuminati in any way, shape or form.  I have never had problems with whatever  the press writes about me. But these publications have  gone beyond the boundaries.”
