Brymo in a Twitter thread alleged that some time ago, 2face Idibia accused him of sleeping with his wife, Annie. Freeze in a post shared on his Instagram page said Brymo shouldn't have made the allegation public. According to him, the timing for Brymo's calling out was not right. ''Brymo, in my humble opinion, saying this is wrong… haba..

Britney Spears’ Dad Claims her Addiction and Mental health issues’ are more Serious than revealed

Jamie Spears, who previously agreed to step down as conservator of his daughter, Britney Spears' estate, has claimed that his daughter's struggles with "addiction and mental health issues" are far more serious than the public knows.

Hazard’s Real Madrid struggles down to weight issues – Wenger

Arsene Wenger believes Eden Hazard is 'too heavy' and his weight issues are the main reason behind his struggle to get started at Real Madrid.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has said that the side's recent struggles marks the "toughest" period in his time at the club. Spurs escaped with a late draw at home to Premier League strugglers Watford on Saturday, following a controversial Dele Alli equaliser.
