While R. Kelly was celebrating his birthday in a Chicago nightclub, cops crashed his party. Making their presence known, officers contacted Kells but didn’t arrest him.
Calling All Cars!
An anonymous call was placed to Chicago PD early Thursday morning alleging a warrant was out for R. Kelly’s arrest. Celebrating at V75 Chicago, R. Kelly screamed loudly and proudly “It’s my muthaf*ckin’ birthday and I don’t give a f**k about what’s going on!”. Attempting to ignore the impact “Surviving R. Kelly” has had, the singer continued belting his old hits “12 Play” and the introduction to “Bump n’ Grind”.
Surrounded by adoring fans, the singer postured himself as unbothered, but recent developments will break his bravado soon. Since the release of the documentary, authorities in Atlanta have committed to seeking justice for the abused. Joining Atlanta in requesting tips and hoping to lock the deviant up for good, Chicago is also on board, seeking to prosecute R. Kelly for his crimes.
With such a public outcry demanding retribution for his survivors, celebs have begun to distance themselves from the fallen star. Just recently, Lady Gaga has decided to pull “Do What You Want (With My Body)” from all platforms. The collaboration with R. Kelly caused a bit of controversy when it was released in 2013 as it was common knowledge R. Kelly had a muddied past. Claiming the song was produced while she was attempting to navigate her pain, Gaga has promised to support victims of all identities and apologized for not speaking out sooner.
Well has run dry
Along with being dropped by former friends, the Pied Piper is facing eviction. In the documentary, a former employee made it known that R. Kelly strategically pays his bills. Now, it appears he has allowed yet another obligation to snowball. More than $80,000 behind in rent, the singer is facing eviction from his Chicago studio/sex den. The lawsuit, which was filed in July 2018, alleges R. Kelly has not paid his monthly rent in quite some time and has just two weeks to fork it over. This same process of financial management is what caused his eviction from the Atlanta mansion featured in the documentary.
Showing no signs of ending his campaign of degradation, sources allege R. Kelly could be moving to either California or Florida. Known for keeping his captives on the move, the singer has frequented both areas, with Los Angeles being featured prominently in rescue footage. As things continue to spin uncontrollably for the once-beloved crooner, we hope this is the eventful end to his reign of terror.
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!

In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.

During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
