LIL WAYNE has told Drake and Chris Brown to kiss and make up following last week's bar brawl in New York because "making money is what matters most", TMZ reports. The pint-sized rapper has apparently taken the side of Drake, who is signed to his music label Young Money, in the dispute, which was reportedly over Rihanna. However, "the bottom line is the bottom line" notes TMZ, and Lil Wayne feels an ongoing feud would be bad for business.  A 'source' said: "Brown appears on several tracks with Young Money members and, pure and simple, Brown = hits."

TURTLE SEX FOSSIL FOUND IN GERMANY
An X-rated fossil of two turtles "caught in the act" has been found in Darmstadt, Germany, according to the Daily Mirror. Scientists believe the reptiles died while having sex 47 million years ago, after they were "overwhelmed by toxic waters" from a nearby lake.

It is believed that the turtles sank and were buried beneath the oxygen-starved lakebed where they remained, preserved in coitus.

BRIDE STEALS £200K FROM BOSS FOR WEDDING
A bride who stole up to £200,000 from her employers to lavish on her wedding has been jailed, according to the Daily Express. Kirsty Lane, 30, bought jewel encrusted iPods for the ceremony, along with matching UGG boots for all her bridesmaids. Lane's employers attended the ceremony and even bought her a gift, unaware that the bride had funded the wedding at their expense. Lane was arrested before she could leave for her honeymoon. She was sentenced to 20 months in prison. Her defence team said she had stolen the money so she could appear a more "attractive proposition" to her husband. ·
