Lionel Messi's two weeks old son, Thiago Messi, has been signed by an Argentine football club

Thiago Messi

Lionel Messi's two weeks old son, Thiago Messi, has been signed by an Argentine football club - Newells Old boys. Newell’s was where Messi played at youth level before joining Barcelona.

Baby Thiago, who was signed by his grandfather, is eight years younger than when his old man joined them in 1995.

You know, Thiago might grow up and want to be a plastic surgeon, so Newells needs to chill.

I suspect that one of my kids is not mine

I have three kids but I have often suspected that one of them is not mine. The middle child looks nothing like me or the other children. He's different in every way, even character wise. Should I confront my wife about it or should I do a secret DNA test without her knowledge? I have spoken to a good doctor friend of mine about a possible DNA test and he says it can be carried out without her knowledge. I started off joking about it, but now I'm almost convinced he's not mine. I need answers so I don't raise another man's child as mine.

Actress Nkiru Sylvanus loses her appointment as special assistant to Imo State Gov

I heard from very reliable sources that actress Nkiru Sylvanus has lost her appointment as the special assistant to governor Rochas Okorocha on Lagos Matters. Yes, there's a position like that! :-)

The Abia state born actress had been battling several people since her appointment last year, who felt  she didn't deserve the position as a non-Imo state indigene and also because they felt the appointment was meaningless and unnecessary as they didn't understand her job specification.

They also felt she got the appointment because of her 'friendship' with the governor and not because she knew anything about running a public office. These people worked tirelessly to get her out of government house, and if what I'm hearing is correct, they've succeeded.

Chris Brown and Rihanna Go Public: Party Together

Chris Brown and Rihanna partied together at a New York nightclub late Monday night. According to TMZ, the ex-couple arrived 5 minutes apart, and quickly ended up at the same table. Sources inside the club said the two were all over each other, kissing and hugging out in the open and even disappeared together in a bathroom for 20 minutes.

Treat your girl right, Karrueche says

Karrueche is Chris Brown's soon-to-be ex girlfriend...:-). If your man leaves you at home to watch the VMAs on TV, then he sure needs to 'eat you right!' :-)

It seems Usain Bolt's dream of playing for Manchester United football club is about to come true. Man U boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed yesterday that the world's fastest man could make an appearance for the club in a friendly match against Real Madrid next season.

"Usain’s a character and a big United fan. It's interesting he says he'd like to play in a charity game. It could be brilliant, and next year when we play Real Madrid's Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him up and see how he does."

How long is a 'long enough' courtship

From a LIB reader:
I met my fiancee/boyfriend in July this year and we would be getting married by end of october or december this same year (not decided yet) we have both met the parents and we are planning our wedding. And am certain in my heart that he is 'the one' and he also feels the same. But when people ask how long we have known, I know it'll be absurd to them when they hear the short duration. But does the courtship duration really determine how successful the marriage will be?

'I didn't kill my wife' - Rich Oganiru tells his own side of the story

This took a while to type, but you are all worth it...:-). In a telephone conversation with Charles Nwagbara of High Society Magazine, the actor accused of poisoning his wife and selling off her property said he's 100% innocent and that the false stories were planted to defame his character. He told the magazine his own side of the story. See it below
According to him, his late wife took ill over five months ago and was battling fibroid. He explained that they opted for some kind of treatment supervised by German doctors which will prevent normal surgery. But to his dismay, the fibroid kept growing back and causing his wife more pain. Later, they  decided to go spiritual and moved from Abuja to Prophet TB Joshua's synagogue in Ikotun where the prophet gave them emergency appointment based on his personal recognition.
