Cold war between Goldie& J Martins after he disrupts her video shoot in SA

There's serious bad blood right now between two music stars: Goldie and J Martins. It's a long story, but I'll try to make it short. Goldie invited J Martins to South Africa in November to appear in the video of a song they did together called Give It To Me. J Martins asked for business class. Goldie said she couldn't afford it. J Martins agreed to come reluctantly. Then he told Goldie to pick him up at the airport. Goldie sent someone instead. J Martin refused to follow the man Goldie sent to the airport to pick him up, saying he didn't know the man and didn't want to be kidnapped (which makes sense).

Diddy about to be a dad again?

The rapper started his own baby rumors after posting a photo of himself looking at a pregnancy test on Instagram. Since he's engaged to Cassie, its safe to assume she's with child...or maybe it's just a publicity stunt?

Dear LIB readers: How do you cope with rejection?

I dated this guy for two and a half years and things were going well until October this year when he suddenly started acting up and deleted me from his Facebook page and his BB. When I asked him why he did so he said that his Facebook page was compromised and his BB was stolen. I found out later they were all lies. I got angry with him and stopped picking his calls because I was confused about his behaviour. After a while I didn't hear from him again only for me to hear that his wedding is this Saturday (that would be today).

I'm so angry and confused and want to know how to cope with rejection. How do you get back your self esteem as a woman? And how do you ever trust a man again? How do you start all over again?

He was murdered. After about seven days of inquiry into his ‘death’, his relatives went to the mortuary with a coffin to take his body but were shocked to find him alive. Lazarus Oluwafemi Agbolahan Makinde, now an evangelist shares his story.
To hear him, especially through the telephone receiver, you must be determined and very patient. The first time this reporter called him, the impression that initially came through as the voice was barely audible, was that he must have been tired out or had some ailment. It was indeed difficult deciphering the near whisper.

Nice try, Rob!

Very predictable Master Kardashian. Now he's claiming his tweets were not about Rita Ora...and blaming the media for assuming it was. Below is what he wrote on his twitter page, which he has since deleted. In fact he has wiped out everything he's ever written on Twitter...
Just so we are clear I never once mentioned ‘Rita Ora’ in any of my tweets or even used the word ‘whore’ and I never would. I Respect Women.
Sad that the media created negativity for a young artist new to the game that is working so hard to make it. Never mentioned any names.
I speak truth. I'm a very Real dude and everything I say I mean…But never called anyone specific a whore and said any names. You all did."
Nice try, Rob! Meanwhile, Rita Ora has explained the reason they broke up. See it after the cut...
