Chris Brown played the Rihanna card one too
many times with Karrueche Tran … we’ve
learned Karrueche has not only broken up with
him … for safe measure she changed her
Finally??? Karrueche Dumps Chris Brown…
Our sources say Karrueche exploded when Chris
recently “liked” 2 fan photos on Instagram of
Rihanna and him together.
But Rihanna was only a small part of
Karrueche’s problems with Chris. We’re told she
was unhappy for a long time … as sources put
it, because “Chris acts immature, like a child.”
She thinks he’s ruining his life by spending
more time partying than making music.
Chris’ reaction to the break up has been
breathtaking. He went to St. Tropez this week
and took a very good friend of Karrueche’s
along for the ride. And he made a point to be
photographed with her … making sure
Karrueche would see it.
Karrueche’s reaction was not jealousy. We’re
told she’s changed her phone number …
specifically so Chris couldn’t contact her.
Boy … it takes guts.
Daily Mail has reported that three security
guards have been fired for taking photos with
Usain Bolt while he was training.
The guards, who are employed by Sword
Security, were reportedly on duty at the Lesser
Hampden training ground in Glasgow on
Wednesday, when they approached Bolt and
asked to take photos. He reportedly obliged.
The Daily Mail said a supervisor, who asked the
guards to put their phones away while the star
athlete trained, fired them.
A statement by the company confirmed the
guards in question had been removed from
their roles at the Commonwealth Games for
breaching their conditions of employment, but
were still employed at the firm.
Officials are now said to have told staff at the
games to be professional and not approach
athletes for photos.
An official from the Commonwealth Games is
reported to have said, “When Bolt is in house,
people are reminded he’s here to compete not
to pose for personal photos. People are
reminded to concentrate on their jobs and the
job at hand.”
Nollywood start actress turned producer has

betting to make a living.
According to him, from findings this group of

“Sport betting is by chance. The better informed
the player is, the better the chance he/she has
of making money,” he said.
Mr Ambrose Obialor, who runs Yobo Viewing
Centre, Lagos, says that some people bet
between N2, 000, N10, 000 and above,
depending on the individual.
He said that some people denied themselves of
food after spending all they had on a bet.
Mr Afeez Adigun, an agent for 1960 Bet
Company, Lagos, said that between 200 and 300
people visit his office to place bets on match
days during football seasons. while about 150
people bet at off-seasons.

electricity and internet provision to boost the

the state of illegal lottery operators.
BBM Surfaces On Windows Phone Store As
We know BBM is coming to Windows Phone this
July, we just don’t know the specific day in July.
But if the most recent development is any
indication, it could be anything from a few
hours to a few weeks from now. Not too long,
even unconfirmed, mega Online Shopping
companies in Nigeria have started fisting on this
rumour – we should expect a surge in sales for
windows devices as people in this part of Africa
have a strong love for Nokia devices that now
run on Windows OS.
A private beta version of BBM has surfaced on
the Windows Phone store, with support for both
WP 8 and WP 8.1. Unlike this paid counterfeit,
this one seems legit as it was published by
“Blackberry Limited”, the official developer name
Blackberry uses in 3rd party app stores. The
only snag now is that you can’t download it.
How private betas work on the Windows Phone
store is your Microsoft ID has to be included in
testers’ list for you to be able to download. My
guess is that it has either been published ahead
of a forthcoming public beta programme or has
been in private beta testing for a while now. If
the latter guess is spot on, BBM for Windows
Phone should go public within a few hours to a
few days from now. However, should my former
guess hold true, you might want to sign up for
Blackberry Beta Zone now, if you haven’t
already, for a chance to be among the first to
test BBM for Windows Phone. But this could
probably spell a late July arrival for BBM on
Windows Phone. There are some unconfirmed
reports it has a feel of the new BB 10 series like
Blackberry Z30, Z10, Q10 and so as well as the
unique windows 8 look with is fantastic but in
truth, I honestly doubt. I believe Blackberry will
stick to its usual designs as it applied in Apple
and Android devices.
Update – To confirm what I earlier said, the link
has now been confirmed as real and there will
be more details on how Windows users can take
part in an external beta coming up soon via the
Unfortunately, it’s not confirmed to be legit
even though it was added by BlackBerry Limited
(the name BlackBerry uses for all apps
published) and given it’s marked as beta, the
download access has also been limited, and
meaning only those with special invites can
download and use the app. There’s no way to
sign up for access either, in case you were
Windows Phone Central reported earlier that
Windows Phone UI elements , while preserving
the familiar BBM design but again, as it’s still
listed as a beta, BlackBerry was quite smart to
hide any screenshots of the app so as to not
reveal too much of the Windows Phone version
before they were good and ready. Know anyone
on Windows Phone who will be looking to
download BBM as soon as it’s available? Seems
some folks at WP Central are excited. But I will
advise Window phones fans not to get too
excited – remember how Samsung used the
BBM coming to Samsung galaxy s4 phones and
so on? I joined many blackberry users to ditch
the phone for a Samsung devices and we had to
wait for over 2 months before its real launch.
It is the last day of the month, we are yet to
see the launch yet. Keep fingers crossed – we
may be hours from an official launch.
Rihanna’s incredible body just floors us every
time we see it – but we were left especially
stunned when she went out wearing just her
BRA this week. Wow. The Diamonds singer
displayed her enviable sexy abs and HUGE
tattoo of black angels wings spread out under
her bust as she stepped out in New York City’s
She arrived at the VIP Room last night wearing
the black sports bra teamed with a denim zip-
up jacket and white shorts with an elastic
waistband. To be honest, they just looked like
men’s boxer shorts.
