14 years after, I saw the man that molested me - by Tosin Silverdam

Tosin is the guy with feminine look that I have posted here a few times. He shares his story below...
"Growing up with a single parent has never been the reason for my mistakes in life, my mother taught me and my brothers well, she gave us the best education, she made sure we never lacked. My mother did all these in the absence of my father who abandoned us at the tender age of 5 years old. It was difficult for us but we survived, yes we survived. How I wish I had a father figure, how I wish I had four eyes to watch over me. My mother can't do it all, she's a superwoman but she's also a human being.

Major throwback photo of Waje at 7 years old

Singer Waje shared a throwback photo of herself at her 7th birthday party many years ago alongside a a little life story and challenges. What she wrote below...
This seven year old, too happy celebrating and loving her family ,loving being provided for, singing in church and learning to be at peace, concentrating on what was important at that age( video games, playing dress up and fighting brothers) ,didn't know a time will come when her faith will tested, or when she will need someone to say "I'm here". But I learn everyday, I learn to be a better me and keep this smile that's so beautiful, on in my 30s and learning to be a woman who sees the glory in disappointments and beauty in success and understanding why new wine cannot be put in an old wine skin.

Dear LIB readers: Would you stay with him if you were me?

From a female LIB reader
What is happening to Karrueche happened to me in November 2014. I found out that the man I have been dating for 4 years has a 22 months old son. This means that he got another woman pregnant while we were together and it was not an unbreak baby because we've never broken up, we hardly even quarrel. I got pregnant early last year but got rid of it because I don't want to have a child outside of marriage. He didn't even tell me, I found out by chance after his cousin asked him how his son was doing. Everyone in his family knew but he kept it hidden from me. I left him in November when I found out but reconciled with him this January but I am still bitter over the experience. Things are not the same between us. One mind keeps telling me to leave him and find someone else. Like Karrueche I'm 26 and his baby mama is 32. What should I do?

It pained him that much? Husband of Justin Bieber's CK model files for divorce

The husband of the model who featured in that raunchy Calvin Klein ad with Justin Bieber has separated from his wife just weeks after the risque photos were released. (couple pictured right)

Supermodel Lara Stone, 31, left the home she shared with husband, British comedian David Williams on Tuesday March 3rd with their 2 year old son and dog. The couple had been married for almost five years. There are now reports that their problems started after the release of these racy Calvin Klein ads which features her partly naked & Justin touching her anyhow. Guess not all husbands are liberal.

His friends said David was used to his model wife featuring in sexy ads but the one with Justin was a different matter, especially after it was widely reported that Justin asked Lara out on a date during the making of the ads, not realizing she was married. After many quarrels over the ads and other problems the couple had even before the making of the ads, the woman said she'd had enough and moved out of the couple's home. Friends say their marriage is done.

Happy 78th birthday to former president Olusegun Obasanjo

Karrueche had no idea Chris Brown was a dad until moments before TMZ broke it

Men can make women run mad sha. Almost looks like Karrueche used her hands to pull out her front hair after finding out her man of 5 years fathered a child while in a relationship with her. According to TMZ, Karrueche found out about the baby almost at the same time we all out found out.
Karrueche Tran was in the dark ... blindsided by Chris Brown's baby news just moments before TMZ broke the story. We're told Tran had absolutely no idea her boyfriend was a daddy -- much less a daddy with a baby mama with whom she partied.
Our sources say Karrueche and Brown had a blowout fight a week ago and weren't speaking, but he tried calling her after the story broke ... she did not pick up.

Yvonne’s Wedding Fix...

Yvonne had found the perfect wedding dress; it was fitted and flowing, and it would make her look like amazing. But her tummy rendered the dress ill-fitting.

She didn’t really mind her size and her fiancé did not mind it either,but on her special day, she did not want it to be an obstacle to perfection. And that dress was perfection.She told Georgina, her sister-in-law. “Buy the dress. We’ll make it work.” “How?” Yvonne asked in bewilderment. “I’ve tried using a girdle oh. If that’s your solution, it didn’t work” “Buy it” Georgina said confidently. Yvonne was unsure. If Sister made her waste money ehn.
