Kim & Kanye pre-nup: Kim to get $1m for each year they are married

Kim Kardashian will get $1million for each year she stays married to Kanye West, this is according to their pre-nup agreement which is in the final stages, Radar Online reports...
"The entire process for the prenup for Kim and Kanye has been extremely easy, and relatively drama free. Kanye didn’t even think the couple needed a prenup, and was ready to give Kim carte blanche to all of his financial assets. Yes, he loves Kim that much. There is a huge difference from Kim’s prenup with Kris Humphries… the preparation of their agreement went on for several months. It was long and tedious.” a source told Radar Online
Minus the $1million, Kim will also get their Bel Air mansion, will keep all jewelry and gifts given to her by Kanye. Money she earns from her reality show, clothing line, & promotional appearances will be hers and hers alone. This is a similar pre-nup to what Jay Z and Beyonce have...

Dear LIB reader: I don't enjoy sex...what can I do?

From a female LIB reader
I am in my mid twenties and will be settling down soon. My problem is that I do not "enjoy sex". I do not feel any sexual pleasure when my guy penetrates. To me it feels like he is playing and wasting his time. But when he romances me I feel it and can even climax. All my life I have never felt any sensation during penetration. When I hear people talk about their experiences during sex and how they can go for many rounds I feel bad because I don't experience such. I have seen a gynaecologist and he said I am ok. But am worried because I might not be able to satisfy my spouse because when ever he notices that I am not enjoying the love making it turns him off. Please Is there any where I can get help from, are there other girls like me? I really want to experience what sexual pleasure is like and also save my future marriage. Thanks.

Malaysia Airlines 'loses contact with plane carrying 239 people'

This is not good at all. A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 carrying 239 people lost contact over the South China Sea on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, raising fears that the plane might have plunged into the pacific ocean.

The plane, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members, lost communication two hours into the flight in Vietnam's airspace at 1.20am local time, China's official Xinhua News Agency reports.

The aircraft left Kuala Lumpur for Beijing 12: 11 am on Friday and had been expected to arrive China at 6:30 am but lost contact with traffic controllers over the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam.

Passengers were from 14 countries, including 153 from China, 38 from Malaysia, seven Australians and four Americans.

Search & rescue have begun and families and next of kin of passengers and crew have been notified. The last time a plane went missing like this, the plane, an Air France aircraft, was eventually found in the Atlantic Ocean, resulting in the deaths of 228 people. This was in 2009. This is not good.

Presidency defends Abacha’s Centenary Award honour

President Jonathan's spokesman Reuben Abati has explained why late military dictator Gen. Sani Abacha was given the controversial Centenary Award, saying that the government was in no way supporting corrupt practices...
"This (award) does not in any means translate to supporting sharp practices or corrupt practices. It is important to make the clear distinction in this regard.
I think it is important to make the necessary distinction here. The centenary award, like every award, has its own criteria. That centenary award was in relation to the amalgamation, the national unity, the history of Nigeria and the roles played by certain individuals.
The centenary award was not a test of sainthood. In giving the award to the former Head of State, Gen. Abacha, the committee in charge made it very clear that the award in the category in which the former Head of State appeared was awarded with regard to the contributions of those individuals in keeping Nigeria together."

Foluke Daramola says her husband can marry another wife if he wants to

In an interview with Vanguard, today, actress Foluke Daramola said her husband of just one year can marry another wife if he so wishes...

Speaking about her husband's former wife, who he left to marry her, Foluke said:
"It’s not something I want to discuss, because my husband has told me sternly not to discuss his former marriage on the pages of newspapers. He’s capable of marrying more than one wife if he so wishes, so, I don’t see how or why he has to chase his wife out for me. Besides, did he chase her or she left of her own volition? or then, should I say the person my ex hubby is married to chased me out of my former home as well? Well, I decided to walk out of my former matrimonial home for personal reasons.
