Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning Show dropped a bombshell on Tuesday, when Peter Rosenberg relayed the alleged story of what really went down between Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa.
During an eight-minute “Talk About It Tuesday” segment, Rosenberg revealed some interesting details about the hip-pop couple’s split. It’s been reported that Amber caught Wiz Khalifa cheating, and according to the radio host, it was with two women – twin sisters, nonetheless.
“Amber walked in on him with 2 women, same time. Twin biological sisters,” Rosenberg said.
he incident went down at one of Wiz Khalifa’s homes, to which Amber had the keys. Rosenberg goes on to say the couple has been having relationship issues for a while, but if Wiz was willing to work on things, Amber would try to fix it. As of yet, he hasn’t reached out to reconcile.

A Muslim player was penalized for dropping to his knees in prayer after scoring a touchdown.
Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after he dropped to the ground and performed the Sajdah in the fourth quarter of last night's game against the New England Patriots.
Abdullah had just intercepted a pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and returned it for a touchdown. 
Michael Signora, the NFL Vice President of Football Communications, wrote on Twitter, 'Abdullah should not have been penalized. Officiating mechanic is not to flag player who goes to ground for religious reasons.' 
The rule that referees claimed Abdullah violated reads, 'Prolonged or excessive celebrations or demonstrations by an individual player. Players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground. A celebration or demonstration shall be deemed excessive or prolonged if a player continues to celebrate or demonstrate after a warning from an official.' 
According to Mike Pereira however, the former Vice President of Officiating in the NFL, players who pray after scoring a touchdown are not in violation of this rule.
Pereira even explicitly said as much on his Twitter account in 2013, writing, 'you're not penalized for going to the ground to give praise after a TD.' 
Players praying after major plays and touchdowns has long been common in the NFL. In fact, former quarterback Tim Tebow prayed so frequently during games that the act of kneeling with one's head bowed and an arm resting on bent knee became known as 'Tebowing.'
Tebow, who is a Christian, was never once penalized by the NFL for this action. 
Abdullah, who fasts during Ramadan and even sat out the entire 2012 season so he and his brother, former NFL safety Hamza Abdullah, could visit Mecca during the Hajj in October, has yet to respond to the controversy.
Penalty or not, Abdullah's touchdown still helped carry the Chiefs to a 41 - 14 victory over the Patriots.
This of course comes at a time when the NFL is already under fire following their botched treatment of numerous abuse scandals involving players including Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy, to name just a few.

News: Pastor Oritsejafor finally speaks: 'I know nothing about $9.3m & my jet is not a gift from GEJ'

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, ( CAN) Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has finally spoken on the controversial $9.3m smuggled into South Africa by two Nigerians and an Israeli, using his private jet.
He broke his silence during the National Executive Council meeting of CAN on Monday at the National Christian Centre, Abuja.
The CAN leader said he had kept quiet all the while, because he needed to explain his position to the church which is his primary constituency.
Oritsejafor stated that he would “not do anything to tarnish the image of Jesus Christ or compromise the divine standard of the church”.
Addressing the body, he said: “As you are all aware, the media has been awash in the past few days about an unfortunate incident involving the movement of funds from Nigeria to South Africa. In the unfortunate news reports, attempts have been made to link me directly with the transaction.
“So far, I have refrained from making any direct public response pending the time that I would have briefed the leaders of the church and explained my position on the issues to them.
“I believe that the primary institution that I owe any explanation to is the church.
‎”At the risk of being seen to be defending myself, I wish to confirm to the distinguished leaders of the church that the Bombardier Challenger 601 aircraft in question is mine.
“The aircraft was presented to me as a gift by members of our congregation and ministry partners worldwide at my 40th anniversary of my call into the ministry.
“May I be permitted to stress that the aircraft was not given to me by the President of Nigeria, neither was it a settlement for any political favour or patronage.
“With the benefit of hindsight, the President of the country was a guest in our church during the anniversary celebration when the jet was presented to me.”
The CAN leader, who explained that President Jonathan has nothing to do with the gift of the aircraft, challenged those making the allegation to come out to show proof so that the matter can be put to rest once and for all”.
On why he commercialised the jet, he explained that: “In order to ameliorate the cost of maintenance of the aircraft, I sought and got permit to allow the aircraft fly in and out of Nigeria.”
“Based on this, I leased the aircraft on August 2, 2014 to a company to run it. It was the lease that entered into an agreement with the people who carried out the transfer of funds.
“Having leased the aircraft to the Green Coast Produce Company Limited, any transaction undertaken with the aircraft can no longer be attached to me.
“In as much as I am shocked and distressed by the incident, I wish to appeal to Christians in Nigeria to remember that a war has been waged against the Nigerian church. This war is being fought on many fronts and this unfortunate incident is another dimension in the assault against the church.
“It is clear that those who manipulated this conspiracy desire to create a schism in the church.”
Oritsejafor said the media hype and the deliberate distortion of information that followed it confirmed that forces that desperately desire to cause division and disunity in the church were at work.
Continuing he said, “As Christians, we need unity in the church now more than ever. We are witnessing inhuman attacks by religious extremists against Christians in the northern part of the country, while christian infrastructure is being destroyed in hundreds.
“If we permit the enemy to divide us, our chances of corporate survival shall be severely threatened.
“Distinguished leaders of the church, please permit me to state clearly before God and before all of you here present today, that I am not a party to the movement of $9.3m from Nigeria to South Africa to purchase arms and ammunition. I am not part of the deal. I know nothing about it.”
‎The CAN President commended the Catholic Church for its support, particularly in refuting a distorted news item by mischievous elements in the media.
He appealed to heads of blocks that constitute CAN and heads of denominations and Christian leaders at different levels to use their good offices to caution and control their subordinates and followers from making public statements that will further polarise the church and strengthen the arms of the enemies of the church.
Quoting Matthew Chapter 18 verses 15 to 20, Oritsejafor said, “If I offend you or you offend me, instead of talking to media, let us talk to each other within the house of God”.

News: Dallas hospital quarantines patient showing signs of Ebola

UPDATE

News: First confirmed case of Ebola confirmed in the United States: CDC
The United States has one confirmed case of Ebola, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday, marking the first domestic appearance of the deadly virus that has ravaged swaths of continental Africa.
The as-yet unidentified patient is located in Dallas, officials say, effectively confirming a statement issued on Monday by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. The organization said that an unnamed patient was being tested for Ebola and had been placed in "strict isolation" due to the patient's symptoms and recent travel history. 
In a press conference, CDC Director Tom Frieden said the patient in question had been traveling in Liberia, where he may have contracted the disease. He returned to the United States on the 20th of September, after which he sought care. Frieden attempted to assuage concerns about Ebola's contagious effect, saying that the virus was only spread through direct contact, and was not airborne. He vowed that officials would contain a potential spread.
"It is certainly possible that someone who had contact with this individual...could develop Ebola in the coming weeks," Frieden said, but added that "there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here," Frieden said.

A Dallas hospital says it is isolating a patient who is showing signs of having the Ebola virus.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement Monday night that the patient's symptoms and travel history suggest the patient may have Ebola, the virus that has killed more than 3,000 people across West Africa.
The hospital expects to receive preliminary test results Tuesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Presbyterian Hospital says it's taking measures to keep its doctors, staff and patients safe.
CBS DFW reports that Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson said the patient had definitely been in an area where the virus is present.
'Looking at the travel history is the first indicator and then the next step is [treatment or non-treatment] once we get the lab results,' he said. 
He said there should be a heightened sense of awareness around the outbreak.
'We [health professionals] all had been planning to look at what our next steps are if there is a confirmed case,' he said. 'Again, we have to do the public health follow up, to see what contacts… where this individual has gone since they arrived here in Dallas. There are a number of things that have to be looked at.'
He cautioned that unless there was transmission of blood, secretion or bodily fluids risk of infection was low. 
Doctors said there should be a heightened sense of awareness around the outbreak in the Dallas area

News: REVEALED: Why Jordan Sparks & Jason Derulo Broke Up

Jordin Sparks is putting the past behind her after her recent split with singer Jason Derulo.
The Battlefield songstress appeared upbeat on The Today Show on Monday and when asked how she was holding up, the 24-year-old played it cool by responding, 'I’m good, actually,' and even hinted she had moved on already.
Her 25-year-old ex was much more open, however, when he stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest that same day. The Talk Dirty hitmaker revealed, 'What happened...in a nutshell, there was a lot of tension in the relationship for a lot of different reasons... There was a lot of pressures of marriage.'
Backtracking a little, he clarified: 'To be fair, it was not just from her either,' he added of the pressures of marriage. 'It was kind of from everybody. That’s not the sole reason, but it definitely played a part.'
Jason again reiterated that cheating played no part in the split and added that they aren't quite on speaking terms yet.
'I wouldn't say good terms, I'll be lying if I said that, but it’s not a bad situation. There’s no bad blood. We didn’t end off on a weird way or a negative way.' 
He also explained why certain songs that he penned for his former girlfriend (Marry Me and their duet Vertigo) will now be left off his set lists: 'I think it will be tough to perform a lot of different songs,' he reasoned.  
Telling his story: Jason, 25, told Ryan Seacrest that part of the reason for his split with the singer was the 'pressures of marrage'

Photos: Oh Dear: Donald Trump Was Punked On Twitter & Threatens To Sue Culprit

Poor Trump! I know he's rich but POOR TRUMP!!!
Donald Trump has been tricked into sharing a photo of notorious British serial killers Fred and Rose West with his 2.7million Twitter followers.
The 68-year-old was contacted on social media by Philip Bradbury, who sent him a message saying his late parents had always considered him a 'big inspiration'- but included an image of the convicted rapists and murderers instead.
The message was quickly shared on the multi-millionaire's feed by his media team but was taken down 40 minutes later after they realized their embarrassing mistake.
But hours later the tycoon responded, saying he may sue the culprit. 
Bradbury wrote: 'My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?' 
He included the photo of the couple who tortured, raped and murdered a number of young women and girls between the 1960s and 1980s. Some of them were members of Fred's family. 
 Twitter users began to congratulate the prankster and within an hour it had been retweeted 2,500 times.
Some users also rushed to mock the businessman, with British comedian Dom Joly tweeting to Trump: 'They seem like lovely, kind caring parents, don't they Donald?' 
Five hours after the original post, the mogul finally responded saying: 'I thought I was being nice to somebody re their parents. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting. Sad!'
Rose West, Britain’s most notorious female serial killer, was convicted of ten murders in 1995 after remains of victims were found at the homes in Gloucester, England, she shared with her partner Fred West.
The crimes often occurred inside the properties with many bodies buried around the surrounding gardens.
She is now serving a life sentence at Low Newton prison in Durham, north east England. 
Her husband was accused of 12 murders but committed suicide while awaiting trial in prison. 
Trump is an avid user of Twitter and constantly shares his viewpoints with his followers.
Last week he criticized President Obama's controversial 'coffee cup' salute he made during a visit to New York.
A follower asked him what he thought about the matter, he said it was 'terrible'.
However he has received a number of backlashes. Last month he said that US doctors who travel across the world to treat patients must 'suffer the consequences' if they are infected.  
Donald Trump, 68, was tricked into sharing this photo of serial killers Fred and Rose West after he was sent a message by a follower saying the tycoon had been a 'big inspiration' to his parents 
He then posted another message saying he thought he was simply being polite by sharing the image

First Photos From George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin's $4.6 Million Wedding

UPDATE
News: George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin's Wedding Cost A Cool $1.6 Million & not $4.6 Million
Love doesn't come cheap! And neither does a weekend wedding along the romantic canals of Venice, apparently.
As People reports, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's lavish star-studded wedding set them back a cool 1.6 million (USD).
It has been previously reported that the weekend nuptials cost anywhere from $5 million all the way to $13 million, People can also confirm that expenses did not surmount 1 million British pounds. As far as a-list celebrity weddings go, the expenses seem rather average. Couples Elton John and David Furnish, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Madonna and Guy Ritchie, each forked over $1.5 million to make the ultimate commitment.
And on top of the soaring budgets, People can also dispel another widespread rumour: the three-day wedding celebration, which included a Saturday evening ceremony at the historic Aman Canal Grande hotel followed by a civil ceremony two days later, was not paid for by the bride’s parents.
..................................................................................................................................................
After George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin exchanged traditional vows, platinum bands and, yes, a lengthy kiss at their 30-minute wedding ceremony on Sept. 27 in Venice, Italy, the newlyweds turned to their family and friends. 
And the place went wild. 
Cheers and applause filled the gilded hall at Italy's historic Aman Canal Grande Venice as around 100 guests, many with tears in their eyes, celebrated the much-anticipated union of the Oscar winner and his barrister bride.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's wedding extravaganza cost a pretty penny!
Of course, it was probably expected that the A-list pair were going to drop some serious moolah on their lavish and luxurious nuptials, but the dollar amount for their special day might even be more than you imagined.
E! News has learned that the Hollywood star and his ladylove's Italian ceremony and the festivities leading up to it could add up to a grand total of nearly $4.6 million!
Let's break it down for you:
Hotel Stay: The bulk of the money goes toward the rooms for guests and the bride and groom. Hotel rooms at Cipriani varied between the Palladio Suite, which costs slightly more than $9,000 per night, and the Dogaressa Suite, which costs close to $8,000 per night. So three nights in the Palladio Suite would total around $31,000, while the same amount of nights in the Dogaressa is just short of $26,000.
 Now take into consideration that roughly 95 rooms were being used at Ciprani, so with the above rates, the grand total comes to almost $3 million—just for the hotel! Meanwhile, those who stayed at The Aman Hotel could have spent up to $4,650 per night.

The Big Night: Renting out The Aman for the wedding reception typically costs $250,000. The lighting, table rentals and other production rentals for the party total up to $300,000. Their five-course Italian style dinner on Saturday with Chef Riccardo de Pra cost around $300 per person, and with 100 guests, dinner came to a grand total of $30,000.
As for the flowers by Munaretto, a source tells E! News, "It depends on the final project, however Munaretto is quite expensive and for an excellent arrangement they will not take less than 200,000 euros or $250,000.
The Tux: Clooney's custom-made Giorgio Armani suit was over $5,000.
The Dress: Alamuddin's custom-made Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sarah Burton was a cool $380,000.
Transportation: According to our insider, the boats cost "600 euros per boat for just two hours. As they had all of the boat drivers on standby for 3 days, literally day and night," their bill for the boats at $400 per hour for 72 hours would equal $36,500.
Beverages: There were 250 bottles of champagne at $200, which comes to a total of $50,000 for bubbly. Meanwhile, 200 bottles of Grey Goose equals $8,000 and while we know they party received the 600 bottles of Casamigos Tequila for free, it would have cost them $30,000.
Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties: The two lovebirds each hung out with their pals for a nice separate dinner the night before their special day. Clooney's bachelor party at Da Ivo restaurant with his seven buddies on Friday cost approximately $250 per person, not including alcohol, so the guys had a bill of roughly $1,750. As for Alamuddin and her 10 ladies, they got a bill of somewhere near $2,000.
Sunday Festivities: The newlyweds kept the party going on Sunday with lunch and dinner with their guests and loved ones at Cipriani, which came to a grand total of nearly $15,000, not including alcohol.

News: Bill Gates Tops Forbes 400 List of Richest Americans with a net worth of $81 billion

The rich keep getting richer. Forbes on Monday released its annual list of the400 richest people in America, and for the 21st straight year Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was No. 1. Gates’ net worth was pegged at $81 billion — up $9 billion from 2013, due in large part to a strong performance by Microsoft shares and the stock market in general. Gates’ friend, Warren Buffett, chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway, was second (the spot he’s occupied since 2001) with a net worth of $67 billion. Larry Ellison, who announced earlier this month that he is stepping down as CEO of Oracle, was No. 3 with a net worth of $50 billion. The combined wealth of Forbes’ 2014 ranking is $2.29 trillion, up from $2.02 trillion in 2013 and the highest ever.
Forty-seven women are on the list, down one from last year. This year includes newcomer Elizabeth Holmes (No. 110 — net worth $4.5 billion), who dropped out of Stanford and went on to found Theranos, a privately held Palo Alto, California, company that developed a quick and cheap finger-prick blood test.

News: With wheelchairs, walking sticks, pilgrims throng Mecca for hajj

Their backs hunched, elderly Muslim pilgrims lean on walking sticks as others in wheelchairs nudge their way into Mecca's Grand Mosque where scores of people are encircling the holy Kaaba.
"Allahu akbar" (God is greater), they chant in unison.
Most are Asian and African, among the hundreds of thousands of faithful who have descended on Saudi Arabia's holy city for the annual hajj pilgrimage starting on Thursday.
The Grand Mosque, home of the cube-shaped Kaaba or "House of God" that Muslims believe was built by Abraham 4,000 years ago, was thronged Sunday for prayers and for the year-round minor pilgrimage, or umrah.
With the call to prayer the crowds fall silent, many spreading their prayer rugs on roads leading to the mosque.
"I have never before witnessed such a feeling of happiness," says Aisha, 50, an Algerian pilgrim in a face mask walking hand-in-hand with her son Ahmed.
This year's hajj comes as the authorities strive to protect pilgrims from two deadly viruses, Ebola and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus, or MERS.
While Ebola has hit Africa, most MERS cases worldwide have been in Saudi Arabia itself, home to Islam's holiest sites.
Pilgrims from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the three nations hardest-hit by Ebola which has killed more than 3,000 people in West Africa this year, have not been allowed in for the hajj.
However Nigeria, where Ebola has killed eight people, was granted permission to send pilgrims to the world's largest gathering of Muslims.
"There was this scare earlier that pilgrims from Nigeria could not participate because of Ebola," Saeed Amisu tells AFP.
Like others from Nigeria, Amisu has had to complete two forms, one at home and another in Saudi, pledging that he had not visited any Ebola-hit town or contacted a patient.

News: Bill Gates warns Ebola could spread beyond West Africa

It is impossible to guess whether world leaders have done enough to bring the Ebola epidemic under control, given the risks that it will spread to countries beyond West Africa, the technology billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates said on Monday.
Countries should get ready to handle a possible outbreak of the deadly hemorrhagic fever in case it spreads further as people from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea move across borders, Gates said at a breakfast meeting sponsored by the newspaper Politico and Bank of America.
“Because of that uncertainty, I am not going to hazard a guess,” Gates said when asked whether he thinks the massive ramping up of international aid over the past few weeks is enough.
The World Bank already has started working with countries on developing plans should the highly infectious disease spread.
The lesson so far is that countries with strong primary healthcare systems already in place are well positioned to halt the march of Ebola, as Nigeria and Senegal have demonstrated in their quick response to cases there, Gates said.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funneled extra money in July and August towards Nigeria and pledged an additional $50 million on Sept. 10 to fight the epidemic, which so far has infected over 6,000 people mostly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
The World Health Organization warns the infection rate probably is three times that number and could reach 20,000 by November. The death rate is over 50 percent.
To contain the epidemic, the United States on Sept. 16 announced the deployment of 3,000 military engineers and medical personnel to build 17 treatment clinics and train healthcare workers, mostly in Liberia, at a cost of about $1 billion.
The United Kingdom and France also are increasing their assistance and the United Nations has stepped forward to coordinate the international effort.

Photos: WOW: Kendra Wilkinson's 1st tweet since June 22, following Hank's cheating allegations

For the first time in like 3 months, Kendra Wilkinson just took to Twitter following hubby, Hank Baskett's cheating allegations.
Read her tweet:

Just wanted to say thank you for all the support. This has been the most challenging 4 months of my life, and I’ve been focusing on being the best me I can be, for myself and for my babies. While some moments are sacred, fact is… I’ve lived my life in front of cameras for the last 10 years, so I chose to allow cameras to tell even the hard stories. I don’t think it’s fair or truthful to only show the good and not the bad. I don’t have all the answers, but like you, I’m a mother, a wife, a daughter and a woman, and struggles are a part of life and I am not afraid to admit that my life is not perfect. Thank you for the love… I’ve missed you all!
Kendra has always been real right from her days in 'Girls of the Playboy Mansion' and we honestly wish her all the very best!

Video & Photos: George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin-Clooney get married twice in two days

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin apparently love getting hitched so much that they decided to do it twice in two days. The couple, who have held Hollywood and European press rapt with their four days of parties and galas, had a 14-minute civil ceremony in Venice’s 13thCentury town hall. The brief exchange of vows formalized the Saturday night affair at a seven-star hotel along the Grand Canal. Though Clooney professed to want a private wedding, his marathon of star-studded nuptial events suggest otherwise. “If they had really wanted a secret wedding, then they shouldn’t have done it down the Grand Canal,” said a Venetian local.What you may not have known about the new bride, AMAL:Amal Alamuddin, who married George Clooney on Saturday, is smart, beautiful and, by all accounts, a cracker-jack human rights attorney. Clooney, by contrast, is a 50-something (former) bachelor with a history of commitment issues. So why has much of the press focused on her “landing” him and not the other way around? Those in the international circles in which they travel say Clooney is lucky to have her.
Born to Lebanese Druze parents in 1978 during the height of the Lebanese Civil War, she and her family left for London when she was 2 years old. Her mother, Baria Alamuddin, is an award-winning journalist and foreign editor of the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Hayat, while her father is a retired professor from American University of Beirut.
Alamuddin studied law at both NYU’s Law School and at Oxford, where she earned her degree in 2000. While at NYU, she was a student law clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for future Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and later clerked for three years at the International Court of Justice.
She has since become an accomplished and feisty human rights lawyer.  In London, she has practiced at the Doughty Street Chambers firm and represented the likes of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. She has worked in the Office of the Prosecutor at the U.N. Special Tribunal for Lebanon and at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
She has also been an appointed to several U.N. panels, where she has acted as an adviser to former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Anan on Syria and was counsel on the 2013 inquiry into the use of U.S. armed drones in counter-terrorism operations in places like Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen.
This year, after the latest Israel-Gaza war, she was reportedly invited to join the U.N.’s commission investigating possible war crimes in Gaza, but turned down the appointment.
She was named London’s hottest barrister by hit legal blog Your Barrister Boyfriend, which declared her to be “both breathtakingly beautiful and formidably successful.” As a “source close to Clooney” reportedly told People magazine this year, Alamuddin is “on his level”—if not a cut above. Alamuddin is such a well-respected lawyer that, shortly after the couple announced their engagement, Josephine Tovey wrote in The Age that it should be Clooney who “should be thanking his lucky stars, having snagged one of Britain’s most eligible bachelorettes.”“If our world was one that valued achievements in education, politics and human rights as much as it did celebrity, headlines around the world would have this week screamed: ‘Sorry boys—Amal is taken,’” she wrote.
