All week we've been reporting on the interesting case of Layla Lace , an Instagram model who posted alleging that Drake had knocked her up and then ghosted her . The entire thing turned out to be false, though, and Lace quickly went private on IG after scrubbing all the posts and getting called out by everybody. That's kinda sad... especially to do something like fake a pregnancy just to get attention ! Related: Drake Puts Country Club On Blast For Racial Profiling' But what may end up being even more pathetic is the aftermath: according to TMZ , Drake's team is taking pity on Lace's ridiculous bid for attention, and they aren't going after her in any legal way for the ridiculous lies she blasted out. Rumors had been circling that Drake's team threatened her with a lawsuit unless she removed the posts, and all these other legal rumblings, but well-connected sources now say that not only has Drizzy never met her, his team has never even been in contact.

The Online War The situation is grim but by no means unsalvageable. “We have killed 13 militants this year and not many boys have joined militancy. There were two unfortunate civilians deaths as well till now. The situation is not alarming but, yes, we are fighting the challenge of militancy keeping intact the sanctity of the society,” Swayam Prakash Pani, DIG, south Kashmir, told ET Magazine. He said the propaganda war, especially on social media, cannot be the touchstone for analysing the security scenario on the ground. A police officer said they have identified at least 17,000 social media accounts operational from across the border and dedicated to Kashmir. The protests cannot be run by social media, said another police officer posted in south Kashmir, although they provide necessary oxygen at crucial moments. Still, there are not many advocates for a ban on social media or an internet shutdown.

There are seven to eight checkpoints from the main gate and without inside help this vehicle cannot enter the compound and get to the mosque. In the Taliban's detailed statement on the attack posted on its official website, spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said that four of the 10 attackers were disguised as soldiers at the time of the attack. The Taliban statement said the attack was retaliation for the killing of the Taliban governor of Kunduz province, Mullah Abdul Salam Akhund, and threatened more violence against the army and police, saying this year's operations will be painful. Local TV footage showed hundreds of people gathered outside the army crops waiting to find out if their relatives had been killed or wounded. In March, an attack on a military hospital in the capital Kabul killed 50 people. Responsibility for that attack was claimed by the Islamic State group.

YANGON: Two Georgian men were busted in a Myanmar airport with US$90,000 (RM3.9 million) of stolen cash hidden in their underwear which they had swiped from a local money changer, police said Saturday. Officers said the middle-aged men, identified as Janjgava Revas, 64, and Narmania Malkhaz, 51, had made off with the money from a currency exchange office on Friday in Yangon, Myanmar's largest city. "They were found at the Yangon airport with the US$90,000 in their underwear," said a statement posted on Yangon police's official Facebook page. "They will have to face trial," an officer told AFP on Saturday, adding that the men were being held in the city's main prison. The duo allegedly duped the money changer into giving them the US$90,000 before they had handed over the equivalent amount in Myanmar kyat. "They told me they would come back with the Myanmar kyat," Zaw Win, the owner of the exchange office, told AFP.

Painter said that could keep the public from seeing who is shaping administration policy. The White House decided last week not to release visitor logs voluntarily, meaning the public wont see who is entering the White House until five years after Trump leaves office. White House spokeswoman Sanders said not everyone who visits Trump needs to be disclosed. You choose to run for president and be in the limelight, but if you are passionate about a particular issue and you want to engage the president, you shouldn't have to be in the limelight as well,” Sanders said. It allows you to have conversations with people that you might not otherwise. Some of those meetings go public anyway. Americans found out Trump had dinner with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock Wednesday night because participants posted photos on Facebook .

AN American expat living in Singapore has taken to Facebook to share his horrifying experience of being physically and verbally assaulted by an elderly Singaporean man on the MRT. Joe DeMarini posted a video of his assault on Facebook, and the clip has since gone viral, amassing almost 20,000 shares from angry netizens. In the video, the drunk older man shouts at Joe and accuses him of being gay. He then admits to being gay as well and vulgarly asks the young man to have sex with him. "I want you to **** me tonight!" he shouts repeatedly, despite Joe saying he is not interested. Joe's female friend tries to intervene but the man starts yelling at her too and continues to shout profanities. The man even claimed that Joe had been sending him "signals" throughout the journey. Joe, who tries to politely diffuse the situation, briefly loses his temper when the man touches him.
