Usher Accuser Ups Lawsuit To $20M After Testing Positive

it’s been an eventful pass few days for Usher. Last week, a woman filed a $10 million lawsuit against the singer for allegedly exposing her to herpes. This week, she’s updated the suit because she tested positive and now wants more money. According to TMZ, the woman, whose name in legal documents is “Jane Doe,” immediately got tested for the STD after she saw reports online that Usher was infected. TMZ originally broke the story and the woman claims she had unprotected sex with the singer earlier this year. Now she wants $40 million — at least $20 million for emotional harm and medical bills, and another $20 million in punitive damages after testing positive... Usher’s camp has yet to respond.

Mike Tyson opens up about his childhoood Sex Abuse

Mike Tyson opened up about his childhood in a recent interview and revealed a traumatic moment that changed his life forever. Mike told ESPN reporter Jeremy Schapp how being sexually abused as a little boy taught him how to be tough for the world we live in. He told Schapp a man tried to lure him into a building but refused to go into full detail of what happened to him.
“Well I don’t like to talk about that, I like to keep that where it was in the past, but I was molested as a child,” Tyson said. Despite Schapp interviewing Tyson multiple times for the last 25 years, Schapp has never discussed this story with him.
“It was no one’s business to know, people just don’t talk about it because to some people they believe it’s demasculating them,” Tyson said.
“I learned that it doesn’t make you any less of a man because it happened,” he added. Crdt: TSR.

Kenya Moore Responds To Accusations She Insulted Kim Zolciak's Son

Reports recently surfaced Kenya Moore insulted Kim Zolciak’s by mentioning her “injured son” during a Nene Leakes “Gurls and Gays” white party over this weekend. Now, Kenya is clearing those rumors claiming she never mentioned Kim’s son!
Moore spoke to Hello Beautiful to clear the air saying,
“That’s a boldface lie. Her child was never mentioned. Kim is just trying to spin the story. I don’t fight with or insult children, which is why I have not responded to the two disgusting insults from Kim’s 20-year-old daughter. As an educator, former USA, I do not respond to ignorance from children.” TMZ reported Kim and Kenya allegedly got into a brawl after a few heated words were exchanged during the party. Kim reportedly told Kenya her marriage was fake. Kenya told Kim she “pimped out her daughter for John Legend tickets.” Castmates claim Kim thought she heard Kenya say “your injured son” and then reportedly attacked Kenya.

Samsung Confirms The Massiveness Of Galaxy Note 8

Samsung is clearly excited about its (highly expensive) Galaxy Note 8. Earlier this month the company ‘accidentally’ leaked it and now Samsung has gone a step further and officially promoted its massive size and new design…

This details came this week when the company sent out official press launch invites for its latest and, arguably, most important smartphone to date. But more importantly Samsung chose to give away two of the handset’s biggest talking points.

Mega Size Multiple leaks from credible sources have shown the Galaxy Note 8 will be the largest premium smartphone Samsung has ever made sporting a whopping 6.3-inch, 19.5:9 aspect ratio display. Now Samsung’s official catchphrase for the event is: “Do Bigger Things”.


All New Design
While a 6.3-inch smartphone is obviously a big device, what will minimise its footprint is switching the range to the almost bezel-less Infinity Display used in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. In fact this allowed Samsung to enlarge the Galaxy S8 P…
