MediaTakeOut clowns Kim K over photo with Basketmouth

Basketmouth shared the photo above a few days ago on instagram and it was wildly misinterpreted. The pic shows Basketmouth giving the reality star a 'talk to the hand' gesture as she tries to get his attention. Some people who didn't understand how that can happen felt it was Photoshopped. MTO carried the pic today and wrote that Kim K was shunned by Basketmouth when she came to Nigeria. See what they wrote below...
 LMAOOOO! Kim Kardashian thought she was hot shit..but some Nigerian dude curved the heck outta her!!! (Embarrassing)
A few months back, Kim was in Nigeria for an event. She tried to shake hands with a popular Nigerian comedian named Basketmouth . . and dude swerved!!!
I was at the event and here's what happened. It happened a year ago at Darey's Love Like a Movie concert. Basket was the host at the pre-event gala and during his set, he jokingly told Kim he wanted a pic with her that would make him look cool. He said something like 'You try to talk to me and I'd act like you're not one of the most sought after women in the world, like I'm too busy to talk to you." A smiling Kim graciously obliged him and so they took the pics while everyone laughed. It was all fun and jokes.

Dear LIB readers: Why are women not faithful? My girl is so cheap

From a male LIB reader
But why are women like that? Why are women not faithful? Why? My girl friend is too cheap. To test her I opened another account on Facebook using my native names. I sent her request and we started chatting for some days without letting her know I was the one. I decided to test her faithfulness in the relationship the day before valentine (13th), I requested for her number, she asked 'for what', I told her I don't have a girl friend and I wanted her to be my val on the 14th. Without hesitation she sent the number. I asked for her address she sent her real address. I asked when and where we can meet, she said we could meet at a hotel close to her house. I asked if she was in a relationship, she said no.
Anyway we agreed to meet at the hotel. She knows my schedule that I would not be at home celebrating valentine with her. I told my friend to call her to come to the hotel which she did and my friend told me she was willing to sleep with him. Please friends what do you advise me to do? This is a girl I was considering marrying some day...

Hot new couple alert - Uti Nwachukwu and Saeon

I try not to say two people are dating if they are not because it's kinda annoying if you're being linked with someone you barely know but there's something definitely going on between singer Seun Oni aka Saeon and actor/BBA winner Uti Nwachukwu. They have been quietly seeing each other for a few months now...they definitely don't want people knowing about it but...we have a job to do. Lol.
"It's still in the early stages. They don't want to give it an official name but there's love and it's serious as of now. They've been on it for a while, but Saeon doesn't like her personal life out in public. " A source close to the couple said
Uti and Seun met through mutual friends in 2012 and became fast friends. Uti even featured in her first video Lies featuring Flowssick. They became serious late last year. Seun has even written a song for Uti called Bust My Brain which will be released soon. She also wrote the sensual song Awada - ereke, which was released last month, for her boo. They look great together. 

Beyonce's half-brother living on food stamps

Beyonce has a 4-year-old half brother (pictured extreme right) who she has never met. She doesn't even acknowledge him. Beyonce's dad had a baby with another woman, Alexsandra Wright, while still married to Beyonce's mum so there's a lot of bad blood there. Apart from dropping him as her manager, Beyonce also put him off her payroll.

Alexandra tells TMZ that Mathew Knowles owes her $32k in back child support and because he's not giving her any money, she's destitute and has to use food stamps to survive. She and her son Nixon make ends meet with $300 from her state issued EBT card which she showed TMZ as evidence.

You can see that after the cut. But let me ask, if you were Beyonce, would you not try to help your half brother? I don't blame Beyonce at all, I understand her reservations with all 'dem baby mama drama but that's your blood, would you not try to help or at least acknowledge him? And he's so cute..

Juno actress Ellen Page comes out as a lesbian

Yesterday February 14th, at a Human Rights Campaign conference in Las Vegas for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender, LGBT, youths, 27 year old Hollywood actress and Oscar nominee Ellen Page came out as a lesbian.
“I’m here today because I am gay. And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. If we took just 5 minutes to recognize each other’s beauty, instead of attacking each other for our differences. That’s not hard. It’s really an easier and better way to live. And ultimately, it saves lives. Then again, it’s not easy at all. It can be the hardest thing, because loving other people starts with loving ourselves and accepting ourselves. I know many of you have struggled with this. I draw upon your strength and your support, and have, in ways you will never know.” Ellen said
