Being a Mother isn’t easy it’s a skill set that you develop and strengthen everyday without even knowing how at times…

My lil sister @skylatylaa who is my cheerleader in everything I do and who is always there when ever I need & has never let me down. My mum who I can count on at ALL times and makes my life so much easier when she comes in on days and takes control. My lil brother @jay_caprice who is always there when EVER I need him to be without a question and my dad for being a whole mood in anything I need him for.

It takes a VILLAGE to raise a child and this is a living proven fact 🙏🏽🤞🏽 “SHOUT OUT” to all my fellow mothers out here enjoying this beautiful journey “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY” 💕💕


Khloe’s Ex, Tristan Thompson Caught Flirting Again

Man is never tired! Lol. Khloe Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson sent flirty messages to a 17-year-old Instagram model who looks the spitting image of Jordyn Woods.

The 28-year-old love rat cheated on the mother of his child while she was pregnant and again with her sister Kylie Jenner's best friend.

Now living life as a single man, Tristan showed he's keen to get back in the dating game by messaging a Jordyn lookalike.

Influencer Yasmin Adelina, from London, revealed the basketball bad boy sent her a purple love heart after slipping into her DMs.

Unimpressed by the move, the teenager told her followers she didn't reply, adding: "That one just shows how trash men are."

Since setting up her Instagram page in September last year, Yasmin has gained 79,000 followers.

She also has a YouTube page, but has yet to post any content.

On her social media, Yasmin has shared snaps of herself posing with champagne, taking mirror selfies and singing.

She is often pictured wearing similar looks to Jordyn - including crop tops and sweatpants to show off her Kardashian-like curves.

Patapaa unveils a new hairstyle

One Corner hitmaker, Patapaa is out with a new hairstyle.

He posted photos of it on his social media handles today.

Sharing the photos, he wrote:

Be Yourself and Stay Humble !!! Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. It’s either you run the day, or the day runs you.

Photos below:

In related reports by YEN, Patapaa’s girlfriend, Queen Peezy, has finally confirmed parting ways with the hiplife artiste. According to her, she is no longer interested in the relationship hence her decision to end it. “I no longer care about this issue because I am not interested in the relationship anymore,” Queen Peezy said.

She added: “I have even removed the promise ring on my finger, I am waiting for him to return to tell him my decision. My family supports my decision.” She made this known in an interview with Accra FM on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. Queen Peezy’s decision to end her relationship with Patapaa stems from a recent video circulating on social media portraying Patapaa having an affair with a white lady.

The ‘One Corner’ hit singer stressed that he had found a white woman who has fallen in love with him while embarking on a musical tour in Europe. In the video which he shared on social media, he and his newly-found woman were seen having a good time in the kitchen.

After the video went viral, Queen Peezy reportedly collapsed and was admitted at the hospital. Queen Peezy in an earlier interview admitted that she was still in love with Patapaa.
