Khloe Kardashian refutes claims that she was Tristan’s mistress

Khloe Kardashian took to her Instagram story on Tuesday evening, to address reports that she was Tristan Thompson’s mistress while the NBA player was dating the then-pregnant mother of his first child, Jordan Craig.

The 34-year-old KUWTK star made her statement after the release of court documents from Jordan, after which Khloe stated that she was ‘disappointed’ about even needing to post the statement yet still apologised to his scorned ex.

She then went on to reveal details of the early days of her relationship with Thompson, 28, which started in 2017, in which she divulged intimate explanations of what she was told by the love rat sportsman and his inside circle.

Khloe and Tristan’s fractious relationship ended in tatters in February after it was alleged than he was caught kissing her sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods during a house party, in a devastating blow to the star.


The infidelity comes after the basketball ace is said to have cheated on Khloe on a number of occasions while she was expecting their 14-month-old daughter True.Since escaping the doomed relationship, Khloe has now been incensed to address ongoing claims that she was in fact, the other woman for Tristan while Jordan was expecting their two-year-old son Prince Thompson.

Khloe was named as his ‘mistress’ in a child support request filed by Jordan in November. She claimed when she learned about the relationship, she moved out of the Cleveland home she shared with the athlete, and back to Southern California.Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Khloe penned a lengthy prose to address such rumours while also chronicling the start of her now-defunct union with Tristan.

She wrote: ‘My truth is: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me. A mutual friend set us up… After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant [referring to Jordan Craig]…

‘Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship, He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle…

‘He showed my physical p(r)oof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point…

‘His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met…

‘This is my truth! The truth I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this!…

‘I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don’t know what to believe. Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry!…

‘I’m sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is my TRUTH’ . Radar previously reported that a child support request from last November, saw Jordan state that she was romantically-involved with the Cleveland Cavaliers center, and became pregnant with his child before his union with Khloe.

Jordan, a Los Angeles native, said when she learned about the allegedly illicit relationship, she moved out of the Cleveland home she shared with the professional athlete, and back to Southern California.

She claims she reunited after Tristan ‘tried to get back together on numerous occasions,’ insisting ‘he would change for our family.’ Jordan told the court she moved out of the LA home they shared amid Tristan’s ‘partying’ and affairs.It appears she was alluding to Khloe in the comments as she was seen recalling how she saw shots taken by the paparazzi ‘with one of the women I previously confronted him about, and whom Tristan had denied even knowing.’

Images of Khloe and the NBA player began to arise in August and September of 2016, when the pair was seen clubbing in Los Angeles and vacationed in Mexico.


In harrowing words in regard to her personal situation, Jordan explained: ‘Their relationship went viral and everything took a turn for the worst…’Every day several articles were published worldwide mocking my new unfortunate reality and my pregnancy would now become one of the most popular gossip headlines due to the woman Tristan was now publicly dating during my pregnancy.’

Jordan said Thompson’s affair had a critical impact on her pregnancy with son Prince, who was healthy when she gave birth to him in December of 2016.

She said: ‘This brought an enormous amount of negative, unwanted attention and stress into my life, and more critically, into my pregnancy…

‘My obstetrician ordered me to be on bed rest due to high levels of stress that eventually caused me to have serious pregnancy complications.’

Make money! The best business ideas you should try out

We are in an era where there are many graduates from collages and no sufficient jobs for all. However business is another option to alleviate this issue of unemployment.

No boss

In most cases having a boss can be a bit boring and hectic. This is because they give you a set of rules that you MUST follow to retain your job.

In this case, you get to work for the boss to get paid meaning if you don’t work, there is no payment.

In network marketing its all different because you are your own boss. You set your own rules to follow and benefit from what you do under no pressure. You don’t work hard to benefit another individual and no one will ever fire you.

Khloe Kardashian was Tristan Thompson’s mistress – baby mama alleges

The adage ‘If he cheated with you, he’ll cheat on you’ might hold more weight with Khloe Kardashian these days.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians personality, 34, was named as Tristan Thompson’s one-time mistress in court documents by his baby mama Jordan Craig, 27.

The revelation was made in a child support request last year, Radar reported, coming about four months after the NBA player, 28, reportedly hooked up with Kylie Jenner confidante Jordyn Woods – his second cheating scandal since he’s dated the reality starlet who she shares daughter True with.

Craig said in court docs (in which she filed for child support in November) that she was romantically involved with the Cleveland Cavaliers center, and became pregnant with his child.

But the pair reunited after Thompson ‘tried to get back together on numerous occasions,’ insisting ‘he would change for our family.’

Eventually, Craig told the court she moved out of the Los Angeles home they shared amid Thompson’s ‘partying’ and affairs. She presumably was referring to Khloe in recalling how she saw shots taken by the paparazzi ‘with one of the women I previously confronted him about, and whom Tristan had denied even knowing.’

Willy posted a video with Alaine and one could see the joy and happiness that they had in each others presence. They giggled and smiled as they flirted on camera.

In the video, Willy is seen gossiping to his followers in Kiswahili about Alaine, a language that she cannot understand and she tried to interject, curious about what the singer was saying. The hilarious exchange is below with Alaine’s responses in Italics;

This is your boy Willy Paul, Willy Pozze.

This is Alaine, Alaine, not Pozze.

Kuna watu hukuwa na kiherehere.

What you saying? Stop speaking Kiswahili.

I just said that you are a very lovely lady.

Oh, thank you. Is that true?

Na hata angejua namdanganya…wah!

Is that what he said? He didn´t say that!

Ai, sasa we unatakaje?

Alaine had had enough and decided that two could play the game and started speaking in pidgin, something that left Willy floating. He then reiterated that he ‘runs the game’ but Alaine didn’t comprehend what he was saying asking him to clarify?

Willy, the cheeky singer decided to say the words, ‘Nakupenda’ with Alaine saying immediately after, ‘Pia Pia ah huh.’ The two burst out laughing as they remember that they have just sung the chorus of Alaine’s famous collabo with Wyre.

Some of his followers were quick to comment about the video, some asking him about Nandy.

7 famous movies you did not know were filmed in Kenya

Kenya is a popular destination for many tourists, especially those who want to witness one of the 7 modern wonders of the world; which is the wildebeest crossing that takes place in November and December every year.


But there are other things that draw tourists and sightseers to this country of ours like the unique scenery and use of English as an official language, making it easy to conduct business here.

These two have been a big reason why the film industry has shot several movies in Kenya. Some of the historic movies shot here are below;

Nowhere in Africa

This 2001 film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Feature Film in 2001. The story revolves around a Jewish–German family that fled Hitler’s Nazi Germany to find refuge in Kenya.

The film was shot on location in Baringo, Bogoria and Mt Kenya.

The Constant Gardener

The film is based on a book by legendary writer John le Carré about a British diplomat in Kenya, as he tries to solve the murder of his wife, an Amnesty activist, alternating with many flashbacks telling the story of their love. It was filmed on location in Loiyangalani and the slums of Kibera, a section of Nairobi, Kenya.

2 women hospitalised after using vacuum hose to end periods early

A nurse in Seattle claims two young women were hospitalised this week after trying to use a vacuum hose to end their periods early.

She said the women were aged 23 and 19, and both went into ‘shock’ after the DIY method triggered a rush of blood, rather than the stop they had hoped for.

So-called ‘Menstrual Extraction’ was first described by feminist activists Lorraine Rothman and Carol Downer in the 1970s as a way to perform an at-home abortion before Roe v Wade.

They described how to construct a contraption – called a Del Em – using a syringe, a cannula, a speculum, and a jar.

Once abortions became legal across the US, ‘ME’ was largely sidelined.

But as Mic reported in 2016, it has seen a resurgence in popularity, this time being pitched as a method to end periods early.

The nurse who posted the tweet, added: ‘I don’t know if it was Eureka, Dyson, Hoover or some Walmart brand, but yes… An actual vacuum cleaner.’

She added: ‘Your period has a steady flow of it’s own that for all intents and purposes your body can tolerate. A vacuum increases that flow over a 1000 times which your body can’t tolerate, therefore sending you into shock.’

Dr. Adeeti Gupta, OBGYN and founder of Walk-In GYN Care, told ‘It’s a terribly unsafe idea. It can lead to severe va*inal injuries and infections. ‘Menstrual bleeding is an active and natural process, it’s not just sitting in the uterus in a pool that can be sucked out. Please don’t even think about it.

‘Thankfully we don’t see this often. Menstrual extraction via vacuum can definitely send you into shock. It’s very real and I have thankfully not seen this happen recently. But I have seen shock happen in similar situations before.

‘Shock can happen either due to severe va*inal injuries leading to blood loss, or just due to stimulation of the nerves in that region which can cause the body to go into a neurogenic shock.’

Speaking to Mic, Dr Brian Levine of CCRM fertility clinic in New York, said: ‘This is a serious medical procedure with serious ramifications if not done correctly.

‘Any time you are instrumenting anything into the uterus, you put yourself at risk of perforation, of bleeding and hemorrhage, of infection, of sterility. It is not something to experiment with.

‘I think the women who say it’s safe to do at home are overstating their capabilities.’

Critics savage X-Men: Dark Phoenix amid poor box office

X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been lampooned by critics and the box office has not been kind to it either. The latest entrant in the Marvel universe has the distinction of being the first X-Men not to open atop the box office.

The consensus is that the movie is “boring” with the plot, and character development coming in for heavy criticism, although the performances (particularly McAvoy and Turner) did receive some praise.

Many viewed the film as a disappointing and anticlimactic conclusion to the Fox X-Men series, and it is the worst-reviewed installment of the franchise, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Some of the critical reviews are below;

Sandie Angulo Chen of Common Sense Media wrote, ‘Turner is well-cast as Jean Grey, but she can’t elevate this serviceable but unremarkable final X-Men film into the pantheon of memorable series endings.’

Ian Freer of Empire wrote, ‘Better than Last Stand or Apocalypse but never hitting the heights of X2, Dark Phoenix thrives when its heroes are front and centre. If this is the end, it’s a solid rather than spectacular goodbye.’

Mihir Fadnavis of Firstpost wrote, ‘Dark Phoenix wants you to believe that it is complex and challenging, but it is all fluff and does injustice to the ideas it represents.’

Rochell Pereira of BookMyShow wrote, ‘Dark Phoenix is packed with emotions, nostalgia for the fans of the series, twists and turns, a convincing plot, and lots of exhilarating action.’

Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal wrote, ‘The most surprising thing about the production, which was written and directed by Simon Kinberg, is how grindingly dumb it becomes after a promising start.’

Neil Soans of the Times of India wrote, ‘Despite good performances, ‘Dark Phoenix’ is a letdown for a number of reasons, least of all because the female characters in this film take prominence, and they deserve better.’

Molly Freeman of Screen Rant wrote, ‘Dark Phoenix provides an unsatisfying ending to the X-Men film franchise, with a storyline that’s neither character-driven nor well-developed.’

Manohla Dargis of The NYTimes said, ‘Dark Phoenix, the 12th installment in the X Men franchise, certainly tries to do right, but the strain shows. It has a female-driven story but odd ideas about empowerment.’

Below is a list of gifts that should not miss in a baby shower;

Tokeo la picha la baby shower gifts


Gifts from the heart. This are the kind of gifts that are either made by ones hands or passed on from one person to another. One can decide to crotchet a sweater for the baby with their name on it. This shows that one took their time to make the same cloth with passion. They may also include gifts that were once given hence are being passed on from generation to generation. This may include toys that were once passed as gifts and they help to keep a good connection between the people who will share that particular gift.

Gifts for the mother. Often times people get excited about the baby and forget that the mother also needs some treats. Things such as babysitting, helping with housework or preparing nice meals are good idea.

They are usually tired or rather exhausted hence need some help. Pregnancy and feeding pillows are important too after the baby is born.

Books for mummy and baby books. This is especially more important for first time mothers. Books on baby related content will come in handy. Story books are also not a bad idea.

Baby clothes. Buy clothes for the different stages of growth. Also pay attention to nice colors and gender of the baby.

This includes baby nappies, blankets baby bedding.

Foods. When the baby is born the mother is normally weak hence will take much time for her to gain strength. The foods should be able to last at least a month to enable the mother to gain stability to work on their own. Remember to also include baby foods on the shopping list and fruits and vegetables are essential to a baby shower.

‘I even paid my own dowry,’ Tonto exposes ex-husband’s fake life

Tonto Dike in one of her interviews revealed the fake life of her ex-husband.

Tonto disclosed how her marriage with his ex-husband was a mess and a big mistake.

She stated that her husband was violent and many at times beat her.

She goes ahead to reveal that due to the physical abuse, she has a miscarriage.

“We had an argument at one time in his room and when I am angered I don’t breath well so as I was rushing out of the room he actually used his leg to push me down and I rolled down the stairs,” she said.

Tonto confessed that she quit her marriage three times and each time she went back. The actress wanted to make it work because she was told her home will break if she left.

Celebs who almost broke our hearts with their fake wedding stunts

She also disclosed how broke her ex-husband was and that they used to stay in a rented house and not in a home they had bought, as the ex-husband claimed.

Tonto explained, “I even paid my own dowry and all the wedding expenses and even the hotel we slept at the room was paid by another man because I knew I was getting married to a poor man.”

Churchill, on the other hand, denies of having a wedding ceremony with Tonto which she says he can deny because he did not pay for any wedding.




She says her marriage was full of lies right from day one, she thought this could change but that never happened.

Her experience with her mother-in-law was another dramatic issue. Any time she visited there were rituals carried out which she was uncomfortable with.

Tonto even confesses of finding the father of her son in one of the spiritual acts in his room surrounded with red candles dressed in red pants. She thought that her husband was a businessman as he claimed in one of his lies only to find out that he was a Yahoo boy.

She is of opinion that Churchill married her because of fame and she was a celebrity.

Game of Thrones actor who plays Jon Snow in rehab

Kit Harington the actor who plays Jon Snow, checked into a rehab facility in the U.S. to be treated for stress and alcohol use as the last season of Game of Thrones was airing.

The 32-year-old British actor arrived at the luxury Privé-Swiss wellness retreat in Connecticut a month ago, sources told the New York Post.

Harington, who starred as Jon Snow on the show for eight years, was reportedly undergoing treatment as the Game of Thrones finale was airing.

His publicist confirmed to that he had checked into the facility.

‘Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues,’ his publicist said.

The facility, which costs more than $120,000 a month, teaches its clients how to deal with stress and negative emotions.

A source claiming to be a friend told the Post that Harington was at the facility ‘predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol’.

Harington is allowed to come and go from the extremely private facility near the small town of Madison.

Fans spotted him in the small town on the same day the GoT finale aired on May 19.

He was seen buying books at the RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison and told staff at the time that he was there on vacation.

His wife and former GoT costar, Rose Leslie, is said to supporting him.

‘His wife Rose is being extremely supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet,’ the source said.

The end of the long-running HBO hit series reportedly struck Harington hard.

He went from virtual unknown to world stardom following his role in the series, in which he played the role of the courageous Snow, whose actions in the final episode were one of the show’s biggest shockers.

The finale attracted a record 19.3 million viewers in the U.S. alone.

He has been open in interviews during the long-running series about how the show has affected him and catapulted him to fame.

Harington admitted to breaking down in tears during the table read for the final season, as well as when he wrapped shooting for the last time.

In a two-hour documentary released by HBO after the finale, behind the scenes footage showed Harington tearing up when he learned that his character would kill his on-screen love Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

‘My heart is breaking. I love this show more than anything. It has never been a job for me, it’s my life,’ he said in the documentary when his final scene was filmed.

Harington revealed in an interview with Variety in March that he sought therapy at the height of his GoT fame and was vulnerable following his character’s brief death at the end of the show’s fifth series.

‘My darkest period was when the show seemed to become so much about Jon, when he died and came back,’ Harington said.

‘I really didn’t like the focus of the whole show coming onto Jon – even though it was invalidating my problem about being the weak link because things were about Jon.’

‘When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f***ing terrifying.’

He went on to say that the period wasn’t a ‘very good time’ in his life.

‘I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world, when actually, I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life around there – like I think a lot of people do in their 20s.

‘That was a time when I started therapy, and started talking to people. I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone. I had to feel very grateful for what I have, but I felt incredibly concerned about whether I could even f***ing act.’

He spoke in a local radio station, while here and said that he was unapologetic for advocating for the decriminalization of same-s3x marriages, saying,

I am obviously going to be advancing an agenda that says there should be at least the decriminalization of same s3xual activity. It is straight forward, I am not gonna mess around with that one. That is obviously my belief.

Just last week, the High Court upheld a law banning LGBTI, keeping same-s3x relations punishable by 14 years in jail. The ruling has drawn strong criticism from the United Nations and rights activists.

Meet the Kenyan Poet who is making waves in the US

Kenyan poet and writer Njeri Wangarĩ got a rare opportunity to share her passion for poetry writing and spoken word performance with over students.

For 2 weeks, Njeri was the visiting poet at Oak-land and Stillwater Middle schools where she shared about her journey into discovering poetry, writing, becoming a spoken word poet.

In addition she talked about her culture, her continent and country to  5th & 6th graders, most of whom had never heard of Kenya before studying her works.

The project to have a visiting poet teach was the first of its kind for the two schools.

Upon her return, Njeri in a statement said,

I had a wonderful time teaching, talking & sharing the beauty of words and power of poetry with all your students in what was for me, a time to have my work taken apart.

To bear witness to how each student interpreted the words to their world was one of the most joyous moments of life as a poet. 

Njeri’s work has been studied in schools in the United States of America as a way to spark difficult conversations on the power of guns vs words.

This is to give an understanding of the effects of rapid industrialization juxtaposed to the growing wealth gap globally as well as teach young learners on the power of poetry and spoken word.

WhatsApp users urged to update app as a precaution

WhatsApp has urged all of its 1.5 billion users to update their apps as an added precaution amidst hackers hacking into the system.

Hackers were able to remotely install surveillance software on phones and other devices using a major vulnerability in messaging app WhatsApp, it has been confirmed.

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, said the attack targeted a “select number” of users, and was orchestrated by “an advanced cyber actor”.

The attack was developed by Israeli security firm NSO Group, according to a report in the Financial Times.

The attack was first discovered earlier this month.

It involved attackers using WhatsApp’s voice calling function to ring a target’s device.

Even if the call was not picked up, the surveillance software would be installed, and, the FT reported, the call would often disappear from the device’s call log.

WhatsApp told the BBC its security team was the first to identify the flaw, and shared that information with human rights groups, selected security vendors and the US Department of Justice earlier this month.

The attack has all the hallmarks of a private company reportedly that works with governments to deliver spyware that takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems.


WhatsApp said it was too early to know how many users had been affected by the vulnerability, although it added that suspected attacks were highly-targeted.

According to Facebook’s latest figures, WhatsApp has around 1.5bn users worldwide.

Amnesty International, which said it had been targeted by tools created by the NSO Group in the past, said this attack was one human rights groups had long feared was possible.

“They’re able to infect your phone without you actually taking an action,” said Danna Ingleton, deputy programme director for Amnesty Tech.

She said there was mounting evidence that the tools were being used by regimes to keep prominent activists and journalists under surveillance.

“There needs to be some accountability for this, it can’t just continue to be a wild west, secretive industry.”

On Tuesday, a Tel Aviv court will hear a petition led by Amnesty International that calls for Israel’s Ministry of Defence to revoke the NSO Group’s licence to export its products.
