Turns out Hugh Hefner left his wife, Crystal Harris with an LA Mansion in her name & $5m
As quickly as Hugh Hefner said "I Do," he rolled out a plan to make sure his wife would be provided for when he dies ... a plan that included a sick pad and MILLIONS.

TMZ obtained the deed to a Hollywood Hills home that is held in trust ... a trust controlled by Crystal Harris. Hef bought the 5,900 square foot house for her back in 2013.

And get this ... sources familiar with Hef's estate plan tell us he also left Crystal $5 million. Based on what we know, the deal is part of a prenup Hef and Crystal signed before they got hitched in 2012.

He is not bound up in fear and he is not chained down by political correctness. He speaks the raw and bitter truth and he stands up for the weak and the defenceless.

Like me he moves in the prophetic and his source of strength is the Spirit and power of God.

We both love God and we are both men of strength, courage, faith and destiny.

The Spirit of David and Jehu runs through us both. We neither fear death nor incarceration and we hate injustice, evil and oppression.

The truth is that he has done an excellent job in his Ekiti state and he has consistently and fearlessly stood against the evil of the Buhari administration and constantly kept them on their toes.

Rob Kardashian is Paying Blac Chyna $20K per month BUT there's a CLAUSE

Rob has reportedly agreed to pay his baby mama Blac Chyna $20K per month in child support. But, Chyna's days of getting the support pay may be limied and here's why...

As it stands, Rob Kardashian is broke; his days on the reality show is being over and what he makes from his sock business is very insignificant. The monthly child support money is actually coming from Rob K's family and they are doing that for the sake of love they have for Dream as well as the need to be a part of her life. Rob family also are concerns about Chyna's ability to adequately care for the child, all amounting to why they are making the huge sacrifice.

Rob, undoubtedly loves Dream fiercely and wanted to make sure he got 50/50 custody. Also Chyna was holding a domestic violence restraining order over his head, which could ruin his chances of getting 50/50 custody, and part of the deal was that she'd drop it in exchange for the cash. However, Kardashian family believes that was a small price to pay to have a relationship with Dream so they agreed to it, even though they believe all along Chyna's motivation was money.
However, here's how the arrangement could affect Chyna; Rob Kardashian can go back to court from time to time to ask for a review of child support given his lack of income...and if he does just that, Chyna may no longer be collecting the $20K monthly support.

“I never raised my hands against my ex wife” – Olakunle Churchill says as he addresses Tonto's Domestic Violence Allegations

Olakunle Churchill has taken time to address the allegations of domestic abuse made against him by his ex-wife, Tonto Dikeh.

A fan of his commented on a post on his Instagram page, saying:

"Why is this woman still there claiming what is not and trying to mislead people, if she has a problem with Azuka must she mention your name? She just be really pained, why is she also claiming your dad was Obasanjo’s gardener, is Jesus not the son of carpenter???"

Churchill replied, saying he wanted to take time out of his “very busy schedule to address these lies quickly.”

He wrote:

"I’ll take time out from my very busy schedule to address these lies quickly.

King’s mother had him through CS operation … it wasn’t a natural birth. Her healing process took 3 months and the doctor strongly advised against copulation for the said period.

We lived together for only six months and with 3 months without copulating a 4 months pregnancy that got terminated by domestic violence is an impossibility which clears me of the claims of being a murderer and causing her to lose the said pregnancy that was a figment of her imagination to make the false claims believable.

Secondly, the gold pedant she had on in the pictures showing her scars I bought from Switzerland and I handed that to her 1st December 2016.

Just 2 days after the incident at my mum’s house she held an event where she fixed roads for the disabled colony without make up and she had no facial scars; dec 22 2016 which backs up my claims that I never raised my hands to her through out all the damage she wrecked; also the last time I saw this woman was in December .Google is free and you can graciously use that medium to confirm that what i just said is the truth and nothing but the truth.

About being the son of a gardener; my mum’s pictures are on the internet,she had being living in the U.K before I was born. Does she look like a gardener’s wife?

So what if my father was a gardener? Which he apparently wasn’t, our Lord Jesus was born a carpenter’s son. Where you come from should never determine the limits to your greatness in life.

My father wasn’t a gardener; that’s very untrue

I never raised my hands against my ex wife.

She was the one who violently attacked me with knives and weapons at every altercation.

I am a man of few words and I do not my fight at all neither can I cause bodily harm to any human.

I was raised better than that.

Scornful people will stop at nothing to taint people’s image but it is God’s work to vindicate a man.

People need to stop getting bamboozled by lies they read on social media; any one can lie about sensitive matters to get public sympathy but it takes real eyes to recognize real lies.

When things don’t add up from too many lies a person tells just to sound believable because they are aware they have become a persona non grata on the internet and a laughing stock in the society at large. 6 months of marriage is too short for all these testimonies and claims.

As for domestic violent there should be at least witnesses, her younger sister stayed with us and nanny, where is the doctor that treated her?

Does that she look like the kind of woman that you can beat and go to sleep, she will stab you before the next morning, and she doesn’t joke with evidences, if she doesn’t have one she rather sends you a false text message that you won’t understand as evidences without your replies, then she posts up.

The most painful part of all this is that I was warned by everyone not to get involved with her and look at what I get for giving her benefit of doubt.

The only good thing that came out of that relationship was my King so I just take it all as one of those things that life throws at you".

'I sniffled and blew my nose, it was rough' - Barack Oboma as he admit he cried after dropping off Malia at Harvard

Former United States President Barack Obama, said dropping his oldest daughter Malia off at Harvard University's campus was such an emotionally filled experience, which he describe as having “open-heart surgery”

"For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast," Obama said during a reception for the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children Monday in Delaware.

"I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill (Biden) that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery, and I was proud that I did not cry in front of her," he continued.

"But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren't hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough."

"And it's a reminder that at the end of our lives, whatever else we've accomplished, the thing that we'll remember are the joys that our children, and hopefully way later, our grandchildren bring."

Malia, 19, started her first year at Harvard University in August following her deferred enrollment for a year. The former president and the wife were spotted on campus as they assisted her move in.

Meanwhile, Malia takes on Harvard, the Obama family continues to live in Washington, D.C. while Sasha, 16, their younger daughter, finishes high school.

Nigeria opted out of 90 International Organizations out of 310 she belongs to

The Federal Government has decided to pull out Nigeria out of 90 world organizations. Kemi Adeosun, the Minister of Finance, announced the government's decision while speaking with the state house correspondents following the Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja yesterday, September 27th.

The minister while given reason for the federal government decision to opt out of the organizations is due to the financial implications involved in joining the organizations.

Nigeria is member of 310 international organisations and a committee was set up to review the rationale for our continued membership of such a large number of organisations, particularly in the light of the fact that in many cases, we are not actually paying financial obligations and subscription which is causing some embarrassment to Nigeria and our image abroad". She said

The minister further said; "It was discussed that there were commitments made to some international organisations by former government which were not cash-backed.

Nigeria currently is owing the organizations over $100million and her failure to meet the obligations has caused the nation much embarrassment.

Kemi Adeosun said the Federal government's plan is for Nigeria to belong and maintain only those organizations that are absolutely necessary.

After 7 domestic violence incidences and miscarriages I curse you today – Tonto Dikeh to Azuka Ogujiuba on claims of framed Injuries

Nigerian actress Tonto Dikeh has lashed out at journalist Azuka Ogujiuba for comments she made concerning her on show “Hot Topics.”

Azuka had on the show said tht Tonto Dikeh lied on her reported cases of being abused by the ex-husband Olakunle Churchill.

She said she had video evidence to back up her claims, which she arrived at after meeting with both Tonto and her ex-husband at different times.

However, Tonto Dikeh on her Instagram on Wednesday said Azuka’s claims are not true.

She alledged that Azuka was given money to turn off side down what she said, maintaining that she was indeed abused.

To buttress her claims, she posted a series of photos of her Instagram detailing what really transpired, including screenshots of chats she had with Azuka, with the caption:

Firstly Azuka You lured me into this interview. You used someone I respect a lot to convince me to talk about the marriage incidences. I finally succumbed to it because I felt that my story would help other women who faced the same issue of domestic violence. It was never orchestrated as u say. – Secondly, One of your staff suggested that I cover the scar on my leg. I told you that i was okay with the scar showing because it came as a result of domestic violence. – Furthermore, Azuka I told you several times about my faults in the whole incidence. I never hid any of it. I told you I broke things in his house as a response to the violence I faced. So why would you try and use that against me as if I did not openly admit and repent about it. As a matter of fact I have attached the text messages between us! Try and deny!

– Azuka you said yourself that Churchill offered you money to manipulate everything I said. Your assistant also admitted that Churchill offered her a large sum of money to manipulate the whole thing. You mentioned this in front of every body there! Your staff, your camera men, the make up staff, my team members and my brother. Don’t dare deny this! I have several KEY people who where present there. – Azuka you said that Churchill showed you a video of me destroying things. Azuka please release that video! Release everything that was captured on that cctv camera from the beginning of the fight to the end of it without a second or minute missing! Please do this and vindicate your artist since we know now that you manage him.

– Azuka how dare you even say I lied! Where you there!? Where you present in any of the incidences that occurred!? Did you ever speak to any of my family that naturally would have taken sides with me just as his took sides with him. – When you called me for a second interview to counter his own interview what did I tell you? I said NO. That this is not a fight I want to entertain most especially because of my son. – Isn’t it funny that your boyfriend you sent to pick me from the airport is now flying around the country with Churchill! Coincidence? – You said that you went to Ghana for an event and decided to do a bit of

Over 30% of the workforce is owed 21 months salaries - Kogi Workers cries Out to Buhari to Come to their Aid

Workers in Kogi have cried out laud to President Muhammadu Buhari to save them from their present predicament resulting from non-payment of their salaries, by sending them food, drugs and other materials.

Kogi state workers made the appeal on Wednesday in Lokoja in a statement jointly issued by the state chapters of the NLC, TUC and the Joint Public Service Negotiating Council (JPSNC).

Olakunle Faniyi, Kolawole James and Isah Abubakar, Secretaries of NLC, TUC and JPSNC respectively, signed the statement which was circulated to media houses.

According to their statement, President Muhammadu Buhari should direct the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and other humanitarian agencies to supply them food and relief materials.

The civil servants said they were being owed 21 months salaries and that the situation had seriously affected them and their families adversely

The workers therefore call on the presidency to put into consideration their children who had been sent out of schools due to the inability of the parents to pay their school fees.

“The situation of workers in the state is worse than the condition of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in various camps.

“The agony of the workers is not in any way less than the experiences of victims of natural disasters.

”A situation where workers cannot afford even one meal a day and pay the school fees of their children is already a humanitarian issue.

“As it stands today, over 30 per cent of the workforce is owed 21 months salaries.

”Twenty (20) per cent have unpaid salaries of between 11 and 18 months while about 45 per cent took their salaries up till June this year.

”These are the category of workers the Kogi State Government is forcing to embrace the ‘clock-in, clock-out’ work policy,” they said.

The workers also urge the indigenes of the state at home and abroad to come to their aid in anyway possible.

Workers in the state had on September 22 embarked on an indefinite strike to drive home their demand for payment of their salary arrears.

When contacted, Kingsley Fanwo, a media aide to Yahaya Bello, said the government had yet to enter into negotiation with labour over the demand.

The Director General, Media and Publicity, said this was because the signatories to the strike notice can't be identified by the government.

Fanwo, however faulted labour’s alledged salary arrears, saying that they were out to misinform the public for selfish reasons.

He called on the workers to disregard the labour’s directive to go on strike but continue to go to work.
