Pic Of The Tatoo Session.
Rihanna is in New Zealand these days as part of her "Diamonds" world tour and is set to move on to South Africa next week. To make sure she doesn't forget her visit to that part of the world, RiRi got herself inked with a traditional Maori tattoo which, instead of a needle, involves a chisel, ink pigment and a mallet. In a video uploaded by Tiki Taane, a New Zealander musician and tattoo artist who worked on the "We Found Love" singer with tattooist Inia Taylor, Rihanna is seen grimacing as little arrows are hammered into her right hand. The 25-year-old already has over a dozen tattoos, including the goddess Isis on her chest, music notes on her ankle, stars on her back and a gun on her rib cage. The video below shows blood and may be difficult for some to watch:
Hours before Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner told E! News they were separating, kris had taken off her wedding ring. The Kardashian matriarch paid a visit to a storage center in Calabasas, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 7, looking chic and casual in a white button-down, jeans and black boots. While she was wearing two simple bands on her left thumb and forefinger, that finger was noticeably missing the giant sparkler she'd worn the past 22 years.
Jumoke Okoya Thomas.
House of Representatives member, Jumoke Okoya - Thomas is experiencing a bit of political turbulence. Insiders disclosed the reason for this development as 'making known interest in senatorial seat currently occupied by Remi, wife of political leader- Asiwaju Bola Tinubu'. Information pieced together revealed that the Lawmaker representing Lagos Island 1 Federal Constituency reignited attempts to upgrade status to individual representing Lagos Central senatorial post in the wake of governorship ambition rumour that dogged Senator Remi Tinubu. And Okoya- Thomas is said to have refused to refrain from the move ever since.
On Tuesday, Oct. 8, the struggling NBA star, 33, was photographed together with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian for the first time in several months. With Kardashian, 29, behind the wheel and Odom in the passenger seat, the spouses of four years were spotted in an SUV headed for the Calabasas, Calif. home of none other than Kris Jenner. I hope they are able to work through their issues.
Kris and Bruce.
Should Kris and Bruce decide to move forward with a divorce, it could become one of the most expensive splits in Hollywood history, according to a new report. Kris Jenner probably should have taken a cue from Kanye West‘s infamous “Gold Digger” lyric and gotten herself a prenup, as she and Bruce Jenner are now potentially facing a battle over their $125 million fortune. Bruce, 64, is legally entitled to a major chunk of the Kardashian empire’s earnings, and RadarOnline.com is reporting that the Jenners’ potential divorce could prove to be one of the priciest in Hollywood history.

Bruce Jenner's new favorite word is clearly F**K, because he couldn't stop using it yesterday after Kris Jenner announced their separation. Bruce was at a golf course Tuesday near the family's home in Calabasas ... and he flew off the handle at some photogs (not TMZ) who he claimed were on private property. Fast forward to later Tuesday ... at a yogurt shop with Kendall and Kylie in the San Fernando Valley ... more F**Ks and fingers.

Perez Hilton and Wendy Williams got caught up in Breezy's latest war of words after the celebrity blogger tweeted, "I hope @ChrisBrown doesn't watch! I'm talking about him on the @WendyWilliams show today and I'm going in!!!" to promote his appearance on The Wendy Williams Show this morning. The solo tweet was enough to send Brown into a tailspin. "Thanks for the publicity," the "Love More" crooner responded. "Your insecurities are manifested by your hatred. Princess Perez and wicked witch Wendy." Assuming the duo would focus on everything but his music (legal issues, relationship woes or him losing his virginity at age 8, which he revealed recently), Brown warned them to let it go. "Flunkies! Who cares. It's old.. Your old.. Im not going anywhere... Face it and live with yourself." "Can't take advice from 2 buff chicks when one can't stand to look at herself without plastic surgery and the other is forever on his period."
He then gave up a minute later writing, "I'm going back to sleep. Lol."
