The 52-year-old musician was set to perform at Spring Break Jam this April in Springfield, Ill. A spokeswoman from the Illinois Department of Agriculture told the Chicago Tribune that the application for Spring Break Jam was denied on Thursday (January 10) due to security concerns. The concerns stem from protests outside R. Kelly‘s Chicago studio following the release of Surviving R. Kelly, the Lifetime docu-series which addresses sexual abuse allegations against the singer. The spokeswoman added that the event could be reconsidered and approved in the future, but not with R. Kelly on the lineup......»»

Oops! "Shit Show" Permit Problems Shut Down The Weeknd"s Concert Just Minutes Before It Began!

The Weeknd was all set to host a private concert on Friday night in downtown El Lay to honor and celebrate the 20th anniversary of Grey Goose vodka… but the thing was cursed from the beginning, and the star never even got to perform a single song before it was shut down! According to media reports, [...] The Weeknd was all set to host a private concert on Friday night in downtown El Lay to honor and celebrate the 20th anniversary of Grey Goose vodka... but the thing was cursed from the beginning, and the star never even got to perform a single song before it was shut down! According to media reports, the private event was canceled literally moments before The Weeknd was to take the stage, and the culprit is permit problems -- the El Lay fire marshal wasn't playing around! Related: The Weeknd Can Cuddle AND Play Video Games! Hundreds and hundreds of people showed up to the event -- it sounds like many more than they were anticipating -- and folks were being turned away because of the last-minute permit issue. One guest spoke out to the media about the experience, saying: "I showed up and like 30 girls attacked my Uber. There were all these hot girls standing around all dressed up and staff were carrying crates of Grey Goose out of the building. What a shit show." Yikes!!! Event organizers apparently sent out an email half an hour before the Weeknd was supposed to go on saying everything had been scrapped due to "production issues." Related: Selena & The Weeknd Share A Laugh On A Fun Date! Sounds like a Grey Goose/city permit problem. The company claims that The Weeknd will be back with them soon for more (hopefully well-permitted) events: "Due to unforeseen production issues, tonight's event has been canceled. That said, Grey Goose and The Weeknd will be back together soon – bigger and better!" Oops!!! Can't win 'em all, we suppose. [Image via Peter Kaminski/WENN.].....»»

R. Kelly Addresses Sex Cult Allegations, Illiteracy Claims, Being "Touched" As A Kid, & SO MUCH MORE In 19-Minute Song I Admit

R. Kelly has kept relatively silent since allegations of him leading a "sex cult" broke in February 2017. Now, he's finally confessing a number of his "sins" — and it only took 19 minutes!

Kelly has kept relatively silent since allegations of him leading a "sex cult" broke in February 2017. Now, he's finally confessing a number of his "sins" -- and it only took 19 minutes! On Monday, the disgraced R&B star dropped a nearly 20-minute single called I Admit, in which he addressed the slew of claims that have been made against him over the course of his career. Related: R. Kelly's Ex-Wife Attempted Suicide During Their Marriage Early on in the song, the 51-year-old admits that he has trouble reading -- "I can't spell for shit I admit that all I hear is hits (ohh)" -- and how he couldn't read the words on the teleprompter at the Grammys one year. But he later discusses the more serious allegations. After fully admitting to having multiple girlfriends, Kelly gets real abstract on the concepts of "cults" and "sex slaves," singing: "What's the definition of a cult? / What's the definition of a sex slave? / Go to the dictionary, look it up / Let me know I'll be here waiting… Say I'm abusing these women. What the fuck? That's some absurd shit. They brainwashed, really? Kidnapped, really? Can't eat, really? Real talk that shit sounds silly." Hmm, guess he can't read the definition of a cult either?? Further in the song, Kelly directly calls out Jim Derogatis (or, "whatever you name is"), the Buzzfeed journalist who published the first exposé on the alleged cult: "To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is (whatever your name is) / You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years (25 whole years, yeah) / Writin' the same stories over and over against (stories, stories, yeah) / Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career (a whole career) / But guess what? I pray for you and family, and all my other enemies (prayed for you, enemies)." As we said, the song goes on and on. I Admit also addresses of the singer's affinity for the ladies -- "that's both older and young ladies (ladies, yeah)" -- being muted by Spotify, "touched" by a family member when he was younger, and so much more. Based on the Twitter response, few have gotten through the entire 19-minute ordeal, as most can't get past the incriminating title of the song. Take a look at some reactions and, if you dare, listen to the full song (below). I saw R. Kelly trending and figured he finally got arrested and I can't believe I'm still that naive — Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) July 23, 2018 I just read the lyrics to R Kelly’s new 19 minute song called "I Admit It I Did It." His lack of self awareness is atrocious. There are several lyrics I take offense to. The one I will address is "I’m just a man." I am also a man. I would never use that to defend this behavior. — Talib Kweli Greene (@TalibKweli) July 23, 2018 Not to dismiss the number of issues as it relates to R Kelly, BUT WHO WOULD LISTEN TO A 19-MINUTE SONG? — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) July 23, 2018 r. kelly should say sacha baron cohen tricked him into making that song and then go check into the nearest jail. — Open Mike Eagle (@Mike_Eagle) July 23, 2018 HOW ARE Y'ALL STILL NOT DONE WITH R.

R. Kelly Denies Ruining A Deputy Sheriff"s Marriage — & Hits Back Against Lawsuit With Claims The Complainant Fathered A Love Child!

2017 has NOT been R. Kelly's year. In addition to the troubling claims that the Ignition singer is the leader of a sex cult, the hitmaker has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly ruining a deputy sheriff's marriage. Drama, drama, dramaaaaa! Related: Garrison Keillor Fired Over Alleged "Inappropriate Behavior"! In case you missed it, earlier this year, [...] 2017 has NOT been R. Kelly's year. In addition to the troubling claims that the Ignition singer is the leader of a sex cult, the hitmaker has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly ruining a deputy sheriff's marriage. Drama, drama, dramaaaaa! Related: Garrison Keillor Fired Over Alleged "Inappropriate Behavior"! In case you missed it, earlier this year, Mississippi law enforcer Kenny Bryant sued the chart topper for having an extra-marital relationship with his wife AND accused Kelly of ruining his life. Apparently, Bryant's wife Asia Childress had a relationship with Kelly PRIOR to marrying Kenny. However, per the policeman, Asia's romance with the A-lister was long over by their July 2012 nuptials. Or, so he thought... Reportedly, things were good between Bryant and Childress, that is, until Kelly weaseled his way back into Asia's life. The controversial celeb and Mrs. Bryant rekindled their intimate relations in October 2012 -- when Childress attended Kelly's concert. According to the suit obtained by The Blast, Kenny's wife had an affair with Kelly for FIVE years. To make matters worse, the singer supposedly gave Asia Chlamydia during their affair. At some point during their marriage, Bryant claims Asia convinced him to move to Georgia, in an attempt to be closer to Kelly. Although Bryant agreed to the move, he was unable to find a job and was left financially broke from the situation. Childress eventually asked him for a divorce. Unsurprisingly, Kenny is suing R. Kelly for destroying his marriage and for depriving him of "a spouse, love, support, and conjugal affection." He claims he suffered from emotional, psychological, and financial loss. Man, oh man. Related: Tyga Calls Out Scott Disick's Allegedly Cheating Ways! In response to these damning accusations, Kelly has admitted to knowing Childress, but says he never slept with her. Kelly's legal team is trying to have the entire case thrown out, especially since Bryant is an alleged hypocrite. Through some independent investigating, Kelly's team has discovered that Bryant had multiple adulterous relationships over the course of his marriage. The music maker even defended that he has evidence suggesting the deputy sheriff fathered a child outside of his marriage and regularly came on to his coworkers. The superstar's legal team hit back with allegations that Bryant used his resources as a law enforcement officer to further his own agenda. Oh, and Kenny is said to have misused the legal system in order to attempt extortion against Kelly. The Kelly camp is currently seeking Bryant's phone records to prove their defense. They've also accused Bryant of harassing the disgraced star. Such madness! Be sure to ch-ch-check back for updates as this case is still pending. [Image via WENN.].....»»

R. Kelly Reportedly Manipulates His "Victims" By Getting Them Dependent On His Lavish Lifestyle

R. Kelly may or may not be a sex cult leader, but he sounds manipulative AF. Or, at least, that's the impression we're getting following the latest report on his "cult" drama.

Kelly may or may not be a sex cult leader, but he sounds manipulative AF. Or, at least, that's the impression we're getting following the latest report on his "cult" drama. As we previously reported, the Ignition singer has been accused of being the "puppet master" behind an abusive sex cult where six young women are under his control at his Atlanta and Chicago homes. Yuck. Related: Twitter Reacts To The R. Kelly Sex Cult Allegations While the hitmaker and one of his alleged victims have denied the slanderous accusations, more details have emerged about Kelly's bizarre romantic life. Reportedly, the 50-year-old doesn't actually hold anyone hostage, rather he gets his "victims" addicted to the lavish life so they don't want to leave. *Shudders* This is a claim a family member of one of the hostages is making. According to TMZ, one of the women met R. Kelly backstage during a concert and communicated with the songwriter for six months before being invited to live with him. An invitation the unnamed lady accepted. It's said the supposed victim was 20 years old when she settled into Kelly's residence last year. Despite the hostage rumors, this woman's family says their loved one has been allowed to leave Kelly's Illinois and Georgia homes -- and has done so on MANY occasions. The A-lister even lets the woman fly unaccompanied and out of state in order to visit with the family. Regardless, the woman never stays more than a week and refers to the chart topper as "her man." Per the fam, the victim (?) stays with Kelly as he gifts her with lavish experiences, such as trips to Beverly Hills for shopping sprees, spa days, expensive handbags, lingerie, etc. Apparently, Kelly makes it no secret that he "wants to shower them in luxury." While this family doesn't think their girl is being abused, they have called out the industry vet over his "calculating, methodical process to groom naive girls." Oh, and they confirmed that Kelly takes the ladies' cellphones. In short: Kelly might not be physically harming these girls, but he's using psychological tactics to keep them dependent on him. Gross.

NFL Caves To Trump, Will Now FINE Teams & DISCIPLINE Players Who Kneel During Anthem!

At the league's spring meeting in Atlanta on Wednesday, commissioner Roger Goodell announced the team owners had approved a new policy against kneeling during the National Anthem. Related: Aaron Hernandez's Fiancée Reveals She's Pregnant The new policy statement released to the public finds it "unfortunate" that protests "created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic." (No, Donald Trump did that by hammering the public with his rhetoric that protest is un-American -- when in fact the opposite is true.) The draconian terms it set sent a very clear message: DO NOT PROTEST ON CAMERA: - all personnel must stand for the anthem or their team will be fined - players can remain in the locker room if they don't wish to stand - personnel who are seen not standing will face "appropriate discipline" You can read the entire policy and its response (below): Statement from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell pic.twitter.com/1Vn7orTo1R — NFL (@NFL) May 23, 2018 The NFL Players Association responded quickly, posting an official statement on Twitter calling the ruling out as an about-face from what they'd been told: pic.twitter.com/3FvuGyy4tA — NFLPA (@NFLPA) May 23, 2018 Others, including Jemele Hill, who infamously got pulled from the air on ESPN after pressure from Trump, had some thoughts on the new ruling: I’m very curious to see how many NFL players will be on the field for the anthem that first NFL weekend. — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) May 23, 2018 The NFL is 80% black.

Woman – R. Kelly, R You Going To Pay For My Valtrex?

While the #MeThree! movement was so effective that it even took down men who didn't do anything wrong, R. Kelly has somehow inexplicably been able to skirt a full court press hashtag backlash for allegedly perpetually banging teenagers for decades and even brainwashing them into his one-man sex cult. Because a four-foot tall Aziz Ansari being an overly sloppy date is the real threat to society. The most recent woman to accuse a rapper, of all people, of sexual misconduct is some chick named Faith Rodgers, who did the dirty with Kelly last year. Rodgers must not be much of a reader, because somehow she didn't catch wind that R. Kelly pees on toddlers or whatthefuckever and decided to give romance a whirl. The post Woman – R.

Kelly has somehow inexplicably been able to skirt a full court press hashtag backlash for allegedly perpetually banging teenagers for decades and even brainwashing them into his one-man sex cult.

Rodgers must not be much of a reader, because somehow she didn’t catch wind that R. Kelly pees on toddlers or whatthefuckever and decided to give romance a whirl. She was legal at nineteen-years-old, so the allegations aren’t so much about his XXX after school program as much as the fact that he knowingly gave her herpes during unwanted sexual encounters. Rodgers allowed Kelly into her hotel room for a booty call at 6 am – but in no way thought the encounter would be of a sexual nature – leading her to be shocked when he started putting on those classic R. Kelly moves: Sex is not something I just do with somebody I’m engaging with for my first time. And he shrugged his shoulders and then he responds, ‘Well, I’m at my best when I’m wanted.’ According to Buzzfeed, Kelly called himself “Daddy” and Faith “little doll” and said: I want to teach you and show you how to be a woman. Right before giving her herpes. Which is also something Rodgers is suing Kelly for, because apparently he didn’t disclose that herpes was indeed a part of his STD portfolio. Rodgers added: I think the hardest part was coming clean to my family about everything. And you kind of feel bad, you beat yourself up about it. I blame myself a lot. Victim shaming is definitely not something I’m about to partake in because this is 2018 and people seriously need to wake up. However, I can’t help but feel that Rodgers doesn’t quite understand the job description of a whore.

John Oliver Spoils Megyn Kelly"s Daytime Debut By Reminding Us Of All The Nutterball Shit She Said During Her Fox News Days!

Megyn Kelly is now an easy, breezy, APOLITICAL daytime talk show host! The journalist made her Today Show debut on Monday, making it clear she was pivoting from politics to human interest pieces. For the past few weeks, NBC's promotional campaign has touted the Megyn Kelly Today host as a "unifying force" in a time of social and political divisiveness. Video: Megyn Admits Trump Influenced Her Decision To Leave Fox! But John Oliver is here to remind us about the years before Kelly was trying to be a discount Oprah Winfrey, back when she was a Fox News anchor pushing the network's divisive agenda. On Sunday, Last Week Tonight aired a low-light reel showing some of Kelly's most Fox News-y moments from her years on the cable news channel -- and most of those comments about religion, Black Lives Matter, and white Santa would NOT fly over at NBC! Ch-ch-check it out (below)! Sadly, the new, non-political daytime Kelly wasn't much of an improvement, according to viewers on Twitter. Standing firm that she would NOT be discussing Donald Trump, the TV personality kicked off her debut hour discussing the death of her father, then giving an awkwardly stiff interview with the Will & Grace cast. Those who witnessed the debut episode said it left much to be desired -- and quite a few viewers made it clear they would much rather tune in to NBC's Tamron Hall over the former political pundit: If you're not watching Megyn Kelly's morning debut right now . . . It's one of the more mortifying things I've seen in a while — Richard Lawson (@rilaws) September 25, 2017 For the first time in my life I'm figuring out what else is on tv in the morning besides @todayshow because of Megyn Kelly. — Elyssa (@ElyssaK) September 25, 2017 "Megyn Kelly Today" so far feels like this silent scream of smiling at fellow guests while wanting to leave a terrible dinner party. — Omar L.

Kelly is featured on Lady Gaga‘s 2013 Artpop single “Do What U Want,” which was controversial even at the time. Thanks to Surviving R. Kelly, the docuseries about Kelly’s alleged abuse, accusations of sexual misconduct against Kelly that date back to the ’90s have resurfaced. A music video for the song, which was never released and allegedly featured NSFW content, was directed by Terry Richardson, who also has a slew of sexual misconduct accusations against him. Fans specifically want Lady Gaga to denounce Kelly’s actions. The star has thus far stayed silent about the accusations.

Rami Malek Reacts to Nicole Kidman Golden Globes “Snub” Rami Malek won a Golden Globe this past Sunday night, but also made headlines for getting snubbed onstage by actress Nicole Kidman. The 37-year-old actor appeared on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live where he was shown a clip of the moment for the first time. “I had not seen that,” Malek said, putting his face in his hands. “I’ve known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video,” the Bohemian Rhapsody star said, laughing. “So I thought I could easily go up and say hi. But in a moment like that, it was very awkward. I have a feeling it was probably haunting me on the Internet.” Melissa McCarthy Recalls Being Fat-Shamed and Being Labelled ‘Grotesque’ by a Reporter Melissa McCarthy has called out Hollywood’s double standards as she recalls being called ‘grotesque’ and people referring to her ‘tremendous size’ at press conferences. The Bridesmaids star recalled being asked: “Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?” She added: “I just remember all the blood drained out of me. I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ He was looking around like, ‘She’s crazy.'” It’s not the only time the Oscar nominee has suffered such sickening comments as she also remembers being asked why she “feels the need to be so grotesque.” “I was like, ‘OK, so have you ever asked this of a guy? I’m playing a character. You need to get out more if you don’t think there are real women like that,'” she explained to People. “He goes, ‘Oh, fine, I’m aggressive, call it whatever you want.

But it didn’t have to do with anybody else but me—it was about me figuring out me.” Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, who tied the knot in a 2017 ceremony at their neighbor’s home, are expecting a baby. She is reportedly five months along. One person is not happy about the Fiji Water Girl‘s photobombing at the Golden Globes — Jamie Lee Curtis. The actress said she intentionally moved away from the women holding trays of Fiji Water so she wouldn’t be part of the publicity stunt. View this post on Instagram So, my husband, who doesn’t look at a lot of show business news sites, just mentioned that I was on the CNN website. I specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji and Moet where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera. I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens. The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products.

The award was presented by Kelly Rowland and Clarkson had a lot of praise for her fellow Kelly! Before Kelly started her acceptance speech, she said, “My goal in life in 2018 is to dress and look as cool as [Kelly R.] does right now. I was backstage going, ‘Aw, I’m like the other Kelly. I was like, we can come out with a movie, From Kelly to Kelly. It can be just as good as the first one.’” Kelly thanked Pink, who is a past Billboard honoree. “I’m a huge fan of hers,” she said. “I just want to talk about the women who really inspired me to be a singer and to be motivated. And be progressive with [my] sound, and Pink is one of those people. I was so excited to perform with her because I was such a huge fan of hers since the ’90s.” “It was more or less a positive situation of women coming together and not getting pitted against each other,” she said about performing with Pink at the American Music Awards almost two weeks ago. “I’m so tired. I’m so tired as a mother by watching it. Just accept the fact that there is room for everyone.” “That’s my real goal… to remind everyone that there’s room for everyone. We’ve got to start respecting each other first and not with the beef… There are so many women before us that work so hard for us to have these opportunities and these blessings bestowed upon us,” she added......»»

Bryan Singer Denies, Denies, Denies Sexual Assault Allegations & Firing Rumors

Bryan Singer is speaking out. As we reported, the director — who is no longer working on the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody — is being sued by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who claims the filmmaker raped him on a yacht in Seattle when the alleged victim was only 17 years old. Now, the 52-year-old "categorically denies these allegations and [...] Bryan Singer is speaking out. As we reported, the director — who is no longer working on the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody — is being sued by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who claims the filmmaker raped him on a yacht in Seattle when the alleged victim was only 17 years old. Now, the 52-year-old "categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end." Related: Amber Heard Puts Warner Bros. On Blast! A statement from the filmmaker's rep explains: "Cesar Sanchez-Guzman apparently claims that he did not remember this alleged incident from 2003 until now. Significantly, when Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events. The attorney behind this lawsuit is the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Bryan Singer in 2014. In the end, Egan was forced to dismiss that case once the facts came out and his story completely fell apart. Egan and his attorneys then found themselves as defendants in a malicious prosecution action brought by some of the individuals who Egan previously sued … We are confident that this case will turn out the same way the Egan case did. And once Bryan prevails, he will pursue his own claims for malicious prosecution." These allegations come just after the X-Men director was fired from the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody for Twentieth Century Fox. Apparently, star Rami Malek complained about Singer's "unreliability and unprofessionalism" after he didn't show up to set. However, Singer denies this claim as well, saying: "The studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and beyond my control. While, at times we did have creative differences on set, Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving. I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first." Hmmm.. TMZ also caught up with Singer outside of Mel's diner in West Hollywood on Thursday, where he said his firing had nothing to do with the sexual assault allegations against him. He went on to say he never got a clear answer from the studio, because he thinks "the reason would be, in my opinion, inaccurate and embarrassing." Oof. Watch his full chat HERE. Thoughts???

The 44-year-old actress, who has been one of the outspoken pioneers of the movement against sexual harassment, has taken to Twitter to slam the “silent protest” particularly calling out Meryl Streep for working with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein. “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,” Rose started her tweet. Rose went on to say that the actresses should wear Marchesa – the fashion line Harvey‘s ex-wife Georgina Chapman founded. At the moment, it isn’t unclear if Meryl will be wearing black to the awards ceremony – where she is nominated for her role in The Post. Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa. — rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) December 16, 2017.....»»

R. Kelly Accused Of More Underaged Inappropriateness

Who didn’t R. Kelly have sex with? This man has probably nailed everything not nailed down. No matter how old it was. Would you believe it? Allegedly, there’s even more untold tales of R. Kelly and the underaged. Everyone from his brothers to his backup singers are pointing the finger at him. Claiming that Kelly […] The post R. Kelly Accused Of More Underaged Inappropriateness appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Who didn’t R. Kelly have sex with? This man has probably nailed everything not nailed down. No matter how old it was. Would you believe it? Allegedly, there’s even more untold tales of R. Kelly and the underaged. Everyone from his brothers to his backup singers are pointing the finger at him. Claiming that Kelly even banged a then 15-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah on a tour bus while everyone watched. Sex with a 15-year-old is considered pretty heinous for everyone that hasn’t deleted the moral compass app on their iPhone. But sleeping with a 15-year-old and writing her hit song “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number” is a serial pisser taunting the police. R. Kelly has faced a series of allegations of sexual misconduct with underage girls, and now a former backup singer has a new one — that the then-27-year-old singer had sex with a 15-year-old Aaliyah while on a tour bus filled with entourage members. The claim was made in a Lifetime docuseries called Surviving R. Kelly, which delves into the decades of claims made against the R&B singer. In the premiere episode this week, backup singer Jovante Cunningham claimed that she witnessed the singer having a number of sexual encounters with underage girls, People magazine reported. Cunningham descried how R. Kelly took Aaliyah under his wing when she was 12 years old, including writing her breakout hit “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number.” But the relationship turned physical after a few years, the former backup singer claimed. She noted that there was not much privacy on the tour bus, and one day a group of people was hanging out when a door flew open and they could see R. Kelly having sex with the underage singer. Cunningham said the memory was traumatic to her. “Things that an adult should not be doing with a child,” she said, adding, “I can’t stress to you how people are still suffering behind things that went on 20 years ago.” I believe R. Kelly only got away because GoPro wasn’t around yet. Had he played the same game of watersports with the very, very young lady while recording in 4K he’d probably be playing cards with Cosby right now. Maybe he’s a monster, maybe it’s all just one big misunderstanding. I don’t think the most recent women claiming he’s running a sex cult helps his case at all, but he’s innocent until he runs out of hush money. Photo Credit: Getty Images  The post R.

R. Kelly "Sex Dungeon" And Secret Wedding Details Uncovered In New BBC Documentary!

We've heard a lot about R. Kelly's alleged sex cult over the past few months. Now Kitti Jones, who previously opened up to Rolling Stone about her experience being "trained" by the singer starting in 2011, is spilling more disturbing deets.

Now Kitti Jones, who previously opened up to Rolling Stone about her experience being "trained" by the singer starting in 2011, is spilling more disturbing deets. Related: Celebrity Mentalist Comes Forward With What He Knows About R. Kelly In a new BBC3 documentary special called R Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes, Jones says Kelly admitted to having a 14-year-old girl as one of the "pets" in his "sex dungeon." Jones recalls on camera first meeting this young woman: "I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained' since she was 14, those were his words. I saw that she was dressed like me, that she was saying the things I'd say and her mannerisms were like mine. That's when it clicked in my head that he had been grooming me to become one of his pets. He calls them his pets." Horrifying. But Jones didn't run screaming. She was apparently still under Kelly's sway because she says she stayed through what came next. She says Kelly commanded the woman to "crawl on the floor towards me and perform oral sex on me, and he said, ‘This is my fucking pet, I trained her. She's going to teach you how to be with me.'" Video: Karen McDougal Says Donald Trump Called Her 'Beautiful Like' Ivanka Eesh. Jones goes on to say Kelly was "very abusive, physically, mentally, verbally" throughout her time with him: "I think he gets some sort of satisfaction within himself, knowing that he's taking control over other people." Obviously Kelly's alleged predilection for underage girls has been widely rumored for over a decade. He was found not guilty of child porn charges after allegedly filming himself with a 14-year-old girl. He reportedly paid off others he was accused of having sex with, like 15-year-old Tiffany Hawkins, in out-of-court settlements. But the most famous of these claims was that Kelly had secretly married the late pop star Aaliyah when she was just 15 -- something Kelly has always denied. In the documentary his former manager, Rocky Bivens, claims this rumor was true -- and he himself was present at the wedding. Shocking stuff.

Kelly Clarkson Saving Gays From Shame

It would be nice if Kelly Clarkson could shut down offers of extra cake slices the same way she shuts down gay bashing on the internet. Kelly is surprisingly an inspiration to other human beings on this planet. And not for achieving the debilitating high cholesterol of the body positive shape that she has grown […] The post Kelly Clarkson Saving Gays From Shame appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. It would be nice if Kelly Clarkson could shut down offers of extra cake slices the same way she shuts down gay bashing on the internet. Kelly is surprisingly an inspiration to other human beings on this planet. And not for achieving the debilitating high cholesterol of the body positive shape that she has grown into over the years as you would have assumed. In 2016 she assisted two women with engagement. How? She collected the attention of all 10 attendees at her concert, and made them watch a woman propose to another woman. With an investment like that, it meant she wasn’t going to have any of the hate from online bible thumpers when the same couple tweeted to Kelly that they’ve officially tied the knot. After Kelly Clarkson helped them get engaged — onstage during a pre-concert event in 2016 — fans Kiana and Amanda Clark were married this month. Over the weekend, they sent their favorite pop singer a wedding photo via Twitter with the message “WE DID IT!” Clarkson congratulated the couple with her own tweet, which led to a flurry of well wishes from other fans. There was also at least one dissenter, who used a derogatory term and called the same-sex marriage “a sin any way you cut it.” On Monday, Clarkson decided to respond. “I almost didn’t respond (to) this because hate doesn’t deserve a spotlight,” she wrote. “But (you) know what, truth does, & the truth is that God is Love, & Love shared between two people should be praised not condemned in my personal opinion. I love (you too) although we see the world/love differently.” Kiana Clark quickly responded to this tweet, thanking Clarkson for “standing up for ‘us’ and more importantly, for what you believe in.” Everyone’s a sinner, and Kelly is a repeat offender when it comes to gluttony. If Jesus wanted to, he could book the bitch for 2nd degree sloth and 3rd degree lust. Her size is evidence that she lecherously eyes second helpings and rather run to the nearest couch than on the nearest treadmill. Two women kissing is only an abomination if you haven’t accepted the second coming of our lord and savior, Kelly Clarkson. I’ve invited her into my heart, and will spread the good word like lesbians spread their legs for an intimate scissor sesh. I wholeheartedly believe that more women should be open to kissing each other and more, without the encouragement of alcohol. @kelly_clarkson WE DID IT! pic.twitter.com/05tDCbn9QU — K.C.
