Ed Sheeran and Nicole Scherzinger,'dating' after she turned to his music to heal Lewis Hamilton heartache

Nicole Scherzinger has allegedly found herself a new toy boy in none other than Ed Sheeran.
Nicole, 37, and Ed, 24, have been spending more and more time with each other just lately and are said to be 'in the early stages of dating', according to The Sun.

While the pair have been friends for some time, things allegedly stepped up a gear when the former Pussycat Doll split from her long-term boyfriend Lewis Hamilton 30, in February.

According to reports, the former X Factor judge found comfort in Ed's songs and their connection spiralled from there.
In happier times: The Thinking Out Loud hit-maker, pictured here in November 2014, split from 24-year-old Athina Andrelos in March. 

Nicole joined the Don't singer backstage at one of his Wembley Stadium gigs last month and three days later he whisked her off to his home town in Suffolk, where they enjoyed a drink together at his local pub.
Moving on: Ed said last month that his love life has been 'non-existent' since his split for the pretty brunette
A source told The Sun’s Dan Wootton: 'As far as he’s concerned they were in the early stages of dating and he’s been open about it with close friends and colleagues.  

Another source told the newspaper: 'When she split from Lewis, she was heartbroken but ended up playing Ed’s songs on a loop.'
A friend of Nicole's added: 'They're extremely close. Nicole says he is the male version of her.'

 Nicole split from Lewis in February having dated on and off for seven years.
Talking about the reasons for going their separate ways, Nicole hinted that she and Lewis had become 'complacent'.

She told 'Sometimes people stay in relationships because they get complacent, because it's comfortable for them, because they don't want to be alone.

A police van, which was on the night patrol in the area, rushed to the shop and caught all suspects.

800,000 women affected by VVF annually in Nigeria — UN

The United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) on Saturday said about 800,000 women suffered from Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF) annually in Nigeria.

The Country Representative of the fund in Nigeria, Ratidzai Ndhlovu, disclosed this at the graduation of 100 rehabilitated women living with obstetric Fistula in Sokoto.
Ndhlovu, represented by Dr Audu Alayande, Assistant Country Representative, Reproductive Health, said one in every 10 women suffered from this condition following childbirth.
Ndhlovu, who donated assorted empowerment materials worth N2.3 million to the graduands, said most women who developed fistula had probably given birth at home with no assistance from skilled birth attendant.
“For this group of women, everyday, they must cope with the foul smell emanating from their leaking urine and faeces,” she added.

She lamented that most of the affected women often lose their babies following child birth process.

“In the same vein, these women down with VVF were often abandoned by their husbands, stigmatized by families and communities, and later ostracized.”

She said the graduands had received a two-month training in sewing and knitting, petty trading and grinding machines operations, among others.
She said the items given to them would help them to be productive and useful to themselves.

“This gesture is aimed at helping their reintegration process back into the society and reduce their stigmatization,” Ndhlovu said.
The Permanent Secretary, state ministry for Women and Children Affairs, Suleiman Sarkin-Fulani, commended UNFPA for the gesture.
Mr. Sarkin-Fulani said the state government had staffed and equipped Maryam Abacha Hospital, which hosts VVF Centre to enable it take care of its patients.
He appealed to other donor agencies, partner organizations and wealthy individuals to assist in treating and rehabilitating VVF patients.
Musa Isa, the Executive Director, Nigeria Fistula Foundation, urged the beneficiaries to desist from selling the items given to them.
One of the graduands, Balki Saidu, commended the fund for rescuing them from the “shackles of poverty”.

End Times Disciples Ministries church today A Mob destroyed the church’s tent and set it on fire.

Chaos erupted at the infamous End Times Disciples Ministries church today when a mob destroyed the church’s tent and set it on fire.

According to South African media, members of the Julius Malema-led Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party on Sunday joined up with Soshanguve residents of Pretoria to burn down the church belonging to Penuel Mnguni, a pastor who recently made the news in South Africa for making congregants eat rats and snakes. 

The EFF brigade had vowed to make Penuel Mnguni eat rodents and snakes like he did to his congregation. Luckily for him, he wasn’t at the church for Sunday’s service. 

However, Mnguni’s absence did not stop the EFF from wreaking havoc on the premises. They tore down the churches tent before setting it alight and forced the congregation to disperse. According to an eyewitness:
They then decided to burn down the tent where the church service is normally held and within minutes, the tent was ablaze. There was also an exchange of blows between congregants and residents.
Despite the disruptions, the congregation vowed to continue with the service. Police were said to have monitored the situation from a few hundred metres away.


Mnguni’s church made headlines in July after pictures went viral showing him feeding a live snake to his congregation. He was arrested on charges of animal cruelty. 

Femi Olu Kayode Denies Disowning Any of his Children

Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has denied disowning his three children with former wife, Yemisi.

In a lengthy article published here yesterday, a representative of his family, Felix Olawunmi, narrated a turbulent post-marital relationship between the former minister and Yemisi, and said they were publicly disowning the kids as the issue of their parenthood had been on for years.

Femi is now denying the statement. The original article on ThisDay titled “Temitope Fani-Kayode’s blissful conjugal'' which provoked the Kayode family to write the memo yesterday no longer exists on ThisDay.


THERE WILL be no Women’s Day celebrations for Pamela.
Instead, she will be spending the day, and the rest of her life, nursing burn wounds on her face.

Even Advocate Mthunzi Mhaga, spokesman for the Justice Department, said his bail should be cancelled because the suspect is intimidating the witness.
“She must immediately inform the investigating officer who will talk to the prosecutor to have the bail cancelled,” said Mhaga.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Pamela Mkhize (47) from Daveyton, Ekurhuleni described how the man allegedly tortured her, apparently in a jealous rage, after accusing her of cheating.
She said he tied her hands and feet together and then boiled three kettles of water to which he added cooking oil.

Shoving a cloth in her mouth to quieten her screams, he poured the boiling water over her head, one kettle at a time. Pamela squirmed around on the ground in agony, but he didn’t stop.

“Niku byerile u ta xi kuma lexi uxi lavaku,” he said.
“I told you, you will get what you deserve.”
Then he threw a rope over the rafters and attempted to hang her, but then he changed his mind and spared her life.

Then he left her locked in the bedroom. 
Eventually Pamela gained enough strength to get up and go to the neighbours to ask for help.
She got money from her neighbour and took a taxi to her eldest daughter, who stays in another section of Daveyton. She was taken to a local clinic and an ambulance took her to hospital.

She spent a week at the Far East Hospital. After she was discharged last Friday, she went to Etwatwa Police Station and opened a case of attempted murder.

The man was arrested on Monday but was released on bail on Tuesday.

Pamela said the man walks around telling people he wants to kill her.

“I don’t know why he was given bail. That man is dangerous. I believe killing somebody is easy for him. I’m appealing for help,” she said.

Captain Pearl van Staad confirmed that an attempted murder case was opened and that the man was given bail by the court on Tuesday.

“We advise her to come to the police station so we can take her to a place of safety,” she said.

Angry Residents Smash Pastor’s Head For Disturbing The Streets With His Preaching

48-year-old South African Pastor Zander Emenogo has been preaching the word of God on the streets for 10 years until the day street thugs waylaid and assaulted him.

Daily Sun reports that the pastor of The Evangelical Christian Assembly of South Africa spent Saturday preaching about drugs, crime and violence, and against Islam in the streets and parks of Joburg. Out of nowhere, two young men stopped him (One Alleged to be a Muslim) and told him that he had a big mouth, the rest is history.

The Nigerian-born pastor, a father of two, who has remained undaunted in spite of his experience, now lives in Berea. He said he has to pass on the message whether it offended someone or not.

“I go where the Lord leads me. On Saturday I was standing on the corner of Delvers and Claim streets in the CBD.”

“While I was preaching, there were rough guys looking at me. I was scared but I had no choice. I passed on the word of God”.

“I didn’t know I was pushing the wrong buttons as I preached. I only realized that when I was done and preparing to go home.”

“Before I could respond I felt a heavy blow on my head and I fell down. I only woke up four hours later in a hospital bed,” he said.

“When I went back to preach on Monday on other streets I was threatened.”

“A man told me what the guys did on Saturday was nothing compared to what was to come if I didn’t stop what I’m doing. I preach what the Lord tells me.”

“No arrests have been made and the police are investigating,” he concluded.

Touching Story: Obese sisters walk unaided for the first time after shedding some of their colossal weight.

This is the touching first moment that two morbidly obese sisters walked together unaided for the first time after losing some of the massive weight that has hindered their young lives.

Yogita Rameshbhai Nandwana, 5, and Amisha, 3, finally took their first steps without help after specialists put them on a restrictive diet because their parents were so concerned for their health.

Just three months ago, they weighed 5st 5lbs and 7st 8lbs respectively, and were unable to do anything for themselves.

They have managed to each lose six kg after departing from their daily diet of 18 chapatis, 3lbs of rice, two bowls of broth, six packets of crisps, five packs of biscuits, 12 bananas and a litre of milk.

Their brother, Harsh, who weighed 2st 5lbs when he was just 18 months old, has also been on a diet to try and curb his obesity.

Their constantly increasing weight got so concerning to their impoverished father, Rameshbhai Nandwana, 34, who earns just £35 a month, considered selling a kidney to pay for medical help.

He said: ‘If my kids continue to grow at this rapid rate they will have major health issues. We’re terrified they will die.'
But now the three children are finally making progress and the family help it will change their lives in the long term.

The three children's extreme hunger meant their mother Pragna Ben, 30, spendt most of her day making their meals.

Before the diet started, she said: ‘My day starts with making 30 chapatis and 1kg vegetable curry in the morning. After that I am again in the kitchen preparing more food.'

We started looking for medical help and consulted many doctors but they would just refer us to bigger hospitals that I couldn’t afford.’
Mr Nandwana earns just Rs 3000 (£35) a month - but usually has sufficient money to buy enough food to fulfil the large appetite of his children.

He said: ‘I am a daily wage labour and I usually get paid Rs 100 a day but there are times when there is no work at all.
‘I work in fields, dig wells, and do whatever menial job I can find to earn money. 
'And I’m constantly worried about finding the money to feed my continually hungry children.’

Despite his paltry income, Mr Nandwana spends about Rs 10,000 (£110) a month on food for his children and said he 'cannot leave them starving'
He added: ‘If I don’t have the money, I borrow it from my brothers and friends. But I make sure I feed my children when they need.’

The father has spent Rs 50,000 (£540) on seeing doctors and treatment over the last three years – without any improvement in his children’s condition.

He said: ‘No one in our family has a giant frame. Only my children are overweight. As parents, it pains us immensely to see them unable to move.
‘They cannot walk; they cannot do anything on their own. Selling my kidney is a desperate measure. But I’m now desperate to get the right help for my children.’

Miss Ben cannot pick up her children so she has to watch them roll around when her husband is at work - or use a trolley to pull them around.

She said: ‘They need me to help them bathor when they need the toilet. I’m only 40 kg so it’s impossible for me to pick them up.
‘It’s a struggle when my husband is at work. 
'They are usually restricted to the same place for the whole day and because of that, they cannot go to school.

All they do all day is eat and play and giggle with each other.  
'I want my daughters to get an education and play like other kids. I want them to have a life. This is no life.’
Local doctors believe the children are suffering from Prader-Willi syndrome, but do not know how to treat it.

The rare genetic condition causes various symptoms including constant hunger, reduced muscle tone, restricted growth and learning difficulties.
Dr Akshay Mandavia, a paediatrician at Mandavia Children's Hospital in Gujarat, said: ‘There is an abnormal accumulation of fat in these children.
‘They’re not able to breathe properly, and they wheeze. Their condition could be due to endocrinal disease or Prader-Willi syndrome.

‘But we can only ascertain the right treatment after a proper diagnosis at one of our top hospitals.’

Horrific injuries suffered by aspiring model left scarred for life after being shoved through a plate glass window by her best friend

A model has been left with horrific scarring after her best friend pushed her through a glass window - as the victim celebrated landing her first professional contract.

Lasha Horton was lucky to be alive after broken glass sliced her face almost from ear-to-ear, only narrowly missing her eyes.

But the pretty 26-year-old has been left with a permanent reminder of the attack - a huge gash across her cheeks, nose and brow.

Not only did the assault nearly rob her of her sight, she feared it had robbed her of her £15,000 a year modelling career.

Lasha had thrown a party at her home for ten of her friends, to celebrate signing a modelling contract with top London agency Demus Castings in October 2012.

But during the evening, her friend of five years, Genavese Justin, became aggressive and began shouting at another guest.

She was asked to leave but on her way out, Justin struck out and grabbed Lasha's hair before smashing her head through glass doors.

Lasha was bleeding on the floor as her attacker fled, leaving other horrified guests to call an ambulance.

She would spend the next two days in hospital following the brutal attack, as plastic surgeons battled desperately to repair a jagged scar running from her left ear to the corner of her right eye. 

'If the glass had hit me elsewhere in my face I could have lost my sight,' said Lasha, who was determined not to let the experience stop her following her dream to model.

'My modelling dreams were shattered the second my best friend put my face through that window,' she added.
'The attack ruined my life but I'm determined not to let her ruin my future.

'ANo s it is I have arranged to see plastic surgeons and they have told me that because I am mixed race it will be difficult for the scar to be erased completely so I am scarred for life.

'It's really upsetting because I've done a lot of charity work as a model and now I can no longer do that.
'I also had shoots lined up which I couldn't fulfil.'

Justin, then 24, was later spared jail after admitted wounding as she was handed a 14-month suspended prison sentence in May 2013 for the sake of her daughter.

Incredibly, despite suffering disfiguring scars, Lasha has forgiven the friend who ruined her life.

Lasha said: 'I'll never know why she did it but I've forgiven her.
'I'm much stronger now, and I'm determined to not let my scars ruin my life.
'My scars are beautiful, and if I can inspire one other woman to have confidence in herself, I'll be happy.'
Lasha was left with two five-inch scars across her face, and the glass was less than half an inch away from cutting her eyeball.
She needed 30 stitches to sew up her inch-deep wound, and medics told her that if the glass had penetrated just half an inch higher it would have punctured a vital artery and she would have died.

Traumatised Lasha, originally from Nottingham, struggled to come to terms with the attack and was prescribed antidepressants in April 2013.

She said: 'It took a while, but now I think I'm over it all.
'When Genavese smashed my head through that glass I thought I was going to die.
'Now, I'm trying to show that victims of violent crime shouldn't be made to hide away.
