      Do better based on what? She’s a human being, who can love anybody. What makes it down? Oh, bcos she’s an oscar winner, and he has a child. This may be “her dated up” and he has a good job. Love is love.

      Leto was NEVER her boyfriend. He was kinda creepy, he loved the attention she got at that period and attached himself. Where is he now? No where.

      @Temi so what if you dont find her appealing, you want a gift . anyway it’s your opinion, millions find her ridiculously beautiful so it don matter.

    You got me at leto is creepy.can’t stop laughing. Not just creepy weird as F. Very very creepy with his piercing blue eyes.more like a sacked serial killer. She dated up. If its true. Her ex allegedly has 7 kids. Moreover they look good together.

  22. best revenge is your paper

    August 29, 2016 at 12:04 am

    Leto is a beautiful man especially with the “Jesus Bohemian look” he is fioonee his bro Shannon is sexy, but a pure bred African man is the best may these two Africans have joy,happiness and many Luo /Yoruba babies.
