The story titled “Get Your Own Man! The 10 Side-Chickiest Side Chicks in Hip Hop” wrote that Kae was the side chick while Chris was dating Rihanna, who was the main girl. Below is what they wrote;
"Unless you’ve been living under a boulder, you know that Breezy had an affair with aspiring model (aren’t they all) Karrueche while he was with Rihanna. Then, he and Riri broke up, and he wifed up Karrueche - but then promptly cheated on her with Rihanna, and then got back together with Tran. Rinse, repeat. The love triangle has inspired several years of bitter twitter battles between the girls
Brown can’t seem to quit either of them. In a confessional video he released in 2012, he said as much. “Is there such a thing as loving two women?” Yeah, dude, but for your own sanity,just pick one.Well, Karrueche didn't find the story funny and went off on instagram. Do you think she is a side chick or not??? See what she wrote below..

92 families lived in the building as at the time it collapsed and most of the people killed were top intelligence and security officials. Kim Jong Un gave a rare public apology to North Koreans after the collapse occurred and ordered an inquiry. The four engineers were reportedly executed last week.
The main cause of the building collapse remains unclear but shoddy construction is said to be a likely cause because onsite directors and workers often smuggle out steel and cement to sell in black market
This Guy is ruthless o , am sure everyone under Kim Jon Un quiver with fear ..
He also spoke on the assistance being rendered to Nigeria by the international community, saying there is no shame is asking for helpAsked what his take is on the present state of insecurity in Nigeria, Maharaj Ji said;"Very simple. Because there is no security challenge per say, except for the fact that the Northern oligarchy believes Nigeria belongs to them. They don't believe in anybody whether you are from the South-South, South-East or South-West. They feel that Nigeria is an Hausa country and it is not, we have three regions. We have major tribes. Yoruba in the South-West, Ibo in the South-East, then the South-South the Ijaws etc. The North must accept that Ibo, Yoruba, Ijaw, Itsekiri, Urhobo...we are all one Nigeria, that is what is worrying them. Then again, religion. They should know that God has no religion. The only religion of God is accepting you the way you are. If I don't accept you, how will the place be okay for us?
"There is no problem asking for what you need if you don't have it. No country has exclusive power over improvement in technology. There is no how under the present conditions Nigerians should fear asking the Americans for help or the British or the Germans. If there is going to be any fear, it is still going to be from the north. At the beginning, our fathers just gave in like that, but this time, we are not going to give in, no more. The only solution to Boko Haram menace is for us to go back to our traditions and culture. This time we have to go into tradition and culture to find the real ideal power to be able to sort or mediate and get things sorted out. People should not be afraid. They are going to assist. They are going to help and I know that. If I look at it from the higher point of view, it is time for them too to come and tap from the special grace from Nigeria because they unlike our people know that there is a Christ of this age walking on planet earth and so this situation is for them to carry him along so that all these up and downs, crises in all these places could actually stop" he said.
Sat Guru Maharaj Ji also spoke on the Super Eagles going for the World Cup. He said they can win the World cup only if they stay away from wearing blue pants throughout the competition
"I have given my recommendations and I don't know how Nigerians feel about it. I have told them that they can win this cup if they stop using blue jersey. They have accepted but what about blue pants? They should do away with it. Keshi must inspect all the pants they are wearing. I am begging them throughout this competition, its a national affair and not Super Eagles of Lagos but Super Eagles of Nigeria" he said
The 27-year-old reportedly described Kim and Kanye's extravagant wedding as 'superficial bulls***' and left after having a fight with Kim prior to the pre-wedding lunch at designer Valentino's chatea
A source told X17: 'Rob said he was sickened by Kim and Kanye's display of wealth and clothes and beauty and called it 'superficial bulls***' but Kim was pissed that Rob hadn't made an effort to drop any weight over the past few months. Rob basically thinks Kim cares about him only for his appearance and he said he'd 'make life easier' for her and just leave.'
Rob not only skipped the wedding, he skipped everything else, including the rehearsal dinner. When paparazzi at LAX asked him why he skipped the wedding, Rob didn't answer. Yesterday was the second time the only Kardashian son would be spotted in public since January 2014 after he decided to stay out of public eye following his massive weight gain.
