After Jill Scott was targeted by hackers, there are a couple of pictures making the rounds on Twitter that are supposed to be of the singer and actress. But was she really hacked or could those possibly be the work of photoshop?

Jill Scott Leaked Photos Lead To Black Twitter Meltdown

Posted in:

#iLoveBlackWomenBecause had been trending all day and now Jill Scott is the latest target of celebrity leaked nudes.

The same hackers who have been breaking into female celebrity iCloud accounts and downloading their intimate photos have just released some stolen nude photos of Jill Scott and Black Twitter users are not happy about it at all.

To think that earlier today, Black Twitter was equally venting about a study that made them feel like lab rats. And using the love black women hashtag to get over it, now this...SMH...

Third American Doctor To Contract Ebola Identified As Rick Sacra

Posted in: , ,

The third American to have contracted Ebola has been named as 51-year-old veteran doctor Rick Sacra who volunteered to go to Liberia when Writebol and Brantly tested positive. Bruce Johnson, the president of SIM USA, revealed this in a press conference yesterday.

Johnson said his group was cooperating with US health authorities to determine how Sacra, who is from Massachusetts, got sick.

While stressing there was no confirmation at this time, Johnson said there was a chance Sacra — who had been working in obstetrics at the SIM-funded ELWA hospital — caught the virus from someone who had yet to show signs of the disease.

“They check patients at our hospital before admittance for Ebola symptoms and there’s a strong possibility that the Ebola symptoms were masked and not presenting themselves with a particular patient who was admitted and cared for and possibly this was how Dr Sacra contracted it.”

Jennifer Lawrence Leaked Photos To Remain on Adult Website Due To Copyright Issues

Posted in: , , ,

Jennifer Lawrence’s attorney is reportedly locked in a battle with bosses of an adult content website over the copyright of leaked intimate photographs of the actress.

Remember the monkey selfie and the debate over who owns pictures? Is it the person in the picture, the person who owns the camera, or the person who took the pictures? Many argue it is the person who took the pictures unless he has signed over his rights.

Unfortunately for 24-year-old actress, Jennifer Lawrence, one site featuring nude images stolen from her phone and leaked online is fighting back against a request to remove the illegally obtained photos using that very argument.

Contact of Port Harcourt Ebola Victim Dies at Treatment Center

Posted in: , ,

Another person has died today who contracted the Ebola virus disease from Dr. Iyke Enemuo who had died of Ebola disease on August 22 after treating an Ecowas official.

As the Rivers State Government is planning to burn the corpse of Doctor Iyke Enemuo, it has been announced that one of his primary contacts has also died of the Ebola Virus Disease.

Dan Nwomeh, Special Assistant to the Minister of Health on Media and Communication, confirmed  the death today in a series of tweets updating Nigerians on the status of the disease earlier today.

Dr Enemuo's wife, Mrs. Enemuo is still being treated at the Ebola Isolation Center in Lagos. She has a 3-month-old baby who is being cared for by relatives, also in Lagos.

The Real Rotimi Alakija - Hot Son of Nigerian Billionaire Folorunso Alakija

Posted in: ,

Rotimi Alakija first came to my attention when he was featured in an article [here] on Nigeria’s growing “young moneyed” set which highlighted people like “DJ Cuppy” Otedola, Eku Edewor and her twin sister, Misan Harriman, Richard Vedelago, Adora Mba, Kola Karim among others.

Tatler, the British high society magazine who published the article, described these Nigerians as having billionaire parents, boarding school credentials and private jet passes, and the picture above of Rotimi was included in the article.

So, I can't imagine how Business Insider now erroneously listed DJ Xclusive, whose real name is also Rotimi Alakija, as the son of Folorunso Alakija.

In an article listing the World’s Hottest Billionaire Offspring, the picture and bio of DJ Xclusive is featured alongside Sofia Abramovich of Chelsea FC, Vanisha Mittal, Ivana Trump, and others.

I'm sure there are a lot of Rotimi Alakijas, but if the writer of the article had done proper research, or had reached out to DJ Xclusive, they would've avoided this gaffe.

Ashlee Simpson Weds Evan Ross, Son of Music Legend Diana Ross - Pictures

Posted in: , ,

Ashlee Simpson tied the knot with Evan Ross on Sunday in a short but sweet ceremony at the Connecticut home of the groom's mother, singing legend Diana Ross.

The bohemian-style wedding mixed traditional and eclectic elements that showcased the couple's commitment to family and fun.

The bride, 29, skipped a traditional wedding gown in favor of a crop top, lace skirt and Neil Lane jewelry (the groom, 26, wore Dolce and Gabbana) but stuck to traditional yet meaningful vows during the ceremony, which Diana officiated.

Ashlee Simpson tapped son Bronx, 5, to walk her down the aisle, while her big sister, Jessica Simpson – also a newlywed – served as matron of honor.

Kaley Cuoco seems to be taking the recent celebrity nude photo leak with a sense of humour as she jokingly shared a photo of herself and husband Ryan Sweeting on the beach.

The picture shows the Big Bang Theory actress and her husband walking on the beach together and her top and his bottom are pixelated out as if they were not wearing swim suits.

She shared the image on Instagram with the caption;

'What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico! Feels like we forgot something?'
