“Prezzo Played Me” Says Goldie, Plus Other Responses

At a press conference that held this afternoon at Protea Hotel, Ikeja, Goldie gave the following responses to all the questions thrown at her:

When asked if her ‘love’ for Prezzo was real or a strategy to win, the singer replied:

It wasn’t a strategy to win. I saw Prezzo as a calm, very intelligent and easy going person. Viewers have the option of seeing about 50 cameras at a time but I have just two eyes and two ears and only believe in what I saw. You had the opportunity of knowing him more than I did.

On how she felt when she realized that Prezzo had nominated her for eviction/ played her.

She said, “I didn’t know much or watched Big Brother very much before I got there due to my busy schedule as an Artiste. So, I never suspected that Prezzo played me because he cared for me in the House and when I say you are my friend, I will trust you wholeheartedly. But when I came out of the House and realised that he had played me, I was a bit sad. Knowing that he was in the house to play a game, I became relaxed”.

On why she cried during her eviction on Sunday:
“That is who I am. That was how I was brought up. I am a very emotional person. But I cried mostly because of the betrayal that I felt from Prezzo! He was the last person that I thought could betray me. He was always giving me hope. cheering me up as one of West African representative. He showed solidarity to the course of the Region. I thought he was my friend! So, I was emotional when I realized he played me”

 

 

The Game Calls Off wedding 10 Days Before The Ceremony Debuts On Reality Show

After allegedly spending an estimated $500,000 on pre wedding plans, rapper The Game has called off the engagement to his long time girlfriend and mother of his kid.

The announcement was posted on their save-the-date website and read:

We regret to inform you that the wedding of Tiffney Cambridge & Jayceon Taylor has been cancelled.

The announcement comes ten days before the couple’s chosen date to exchange their vows and just a few days after the couple had announced that they would air the entire ceremony on a reality show.

 

When the news broke, The Game took to his twitter account and posted this message:

“When LIFE throws you lemons…. Squeeze em’ & mix em with Patron.” Smh.

Time is the only thing you can’t get back. Use it wisely & understand that once a decision is made…. There is NO reversing that moment”

It will be recalled that The Game surprised his longtime girlfriend Tiffney Cambridge; with a proposal at the school where she teaches back in October 2011.

Rapper 50 Cent celebrated his 37th birthday in Paris at exclusive nightclub le Vendome.

The Get Rich or Die Trying star was seen partying into the early hours with friends who danced and quaffed an endless supply of Dom Perignon champagne and Belvedere vodka.

Dressed in a white T-shirt, medallion and blue baseball cap the star enjoyed being the centre of attention as scores of clubbers tried to capture pictures of him on their phones and cameras.

But despite being that much closer to the dreaded 40 milestone 50 cent looked to be enjoying himself, spending much of the night flanked by two brunette beauties.

He seems to have put this week’s unpleasant Twitter backlash behind him after he tweeted derogatory comments about autism and special needs children.

Holly Robinson Peete spoke out after 50 Cent retweeted a comment from a fan, in addition to his own message: ‘yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic RT @yung_raditz @50cent Release the album or get shot again.’

He then followed this up with a second tweet saying: ‘i dont want no special ed kids on my time line follow some body else.’

Adele Expecting Baby in Two Months Time

The Grammy Award winning star, Adele who revealed two weeks ago that she was expecting her first baby with her boyfriend Simon Knoecki, they will welcome their baby in two months according to Heat magazine.

Adele has been keeping a low profile since she won the Grammy award at the start of the year picking up six Grammy Awards and two Brits and apparently all she was doing is just to keep the pregnancy as a secret.

“Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible,” an insider told Heat.

“She stopped exercising a few months ago, and since then it’s been all about the baby.”

Despite all her success the Grammy award winner did not fly to the Billboard Music Awards in May where she won 12 awards and she was putting on a baggy dress to the Ivor Novello Awards the same month, she arrived late at the venue in order to escape the press and snapping pictures.

Adele did a wonderful job as no-one had any idea that she was expecting a baby. She revealed the pregnancy on her official website, it said: “I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together.

“I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon. Yours always, Adele.”

The star has revealed why she wore four pair of spanx to the Grammy Awards in February; she was hiding her baby bump!

I Have A Tape To Prove That Charly Boy Is Gay – Jatto

As the controversy linking maverick entertainer Charly Boy, popularly known as Area Father rages on, Ed Jatto, the publisher of Danfo Express who ignited the controversy as published in National Mirror Newspapers that Charly Boy granted an interview to Danfo Express where he declared that he’s gay and head of illuminate in Nigeria, has reacted to a press release by Charly Boy and declared that he has the “tape” that will expose the truth.

The former PMAN President has denied report that he’s gay and head of illuminate and had even dragged National Mirror to court over the matter, but the publisher of the Danfo Express has said that is not saying the truth.

Ed Jatto said “I find it laughable that Charly Boy is subtly backtracking now,” said Jatto.

“He knows I have the tape, I told him when he asked me, and if he had asked to listen to it then, I wouldn’t have minded playing it to him. As it is now, I am not interested in playing it to him at any kangaroo press conference.

“Charly Boy believes so much in suing people. We all know he has sued National Mirror and now he wants to sue me too. So, I’ll just say he should go ahead and sue and we’ll meet in court where the tape will eventually be played for the whole world to hear,” he assured.

Jatto disclosed that he is also preparing to sue Charly Boy as soon as the truth comes out. “I like men who stick to their words, which he hasn’t done. When the tape is played in court and I’m vindicated, I would press for damages because he has caused me considerable embarrassment. It is too late for him now to start asking me to bring the tape to a press conference,” he said
