In retaliation of the Mute R Kelly campaign, which was launched because of the inhumane treatment of women, many of which who were under the legal age of consent, in an alleged sex cult and harem, Kelly has been accused of running for many years.
Kelly has launched the Turn R Kelly Up movement. Over the weekend during his show in North Carolina, Kelly gave out t-shirts and briefly addressed the crowd, with what appeared to be a “woe is me” cry for support.
Watch the plea here:
Kelly has been accused of sleeping with teenagers for years. He was first accused of marrying singer Aaliyah when she was only 15 years old, that marriage was annulled. He was then accused of sleeping with singer Sparkle’s niece, while she was only 14 years old and making the infamous sex tape, in which his reputation for giving out golden showers precedes him to this day.
Quite frankly, Kelly’s reputation overall is absolutely horrific. There are countless stories regarding how Kelly has a God complex because he has been able to get away with a lot of sick and twisted acts, with little to no repercussions.
Kelly Was Arrested on Child Pornography Charges
The singer was arrested in June of 2002 on child pornography charges, he posted $750,000 bail but then was arrested again in January 2003 on 16 additional child pornography charges, when photos of a naked, underage girl were found on his computer.
In addition to the accurately depicted Pied Piper persona, Kelly has also severed ties with his brother, Carey Kelly, who he expected to take the fall for his devious behavior, in addition to singers Neyo, Jay Z, and countless others, because of his superiority complex.
Recently, celebrities such as John Legend, Shonda Rimes, Viola Davis have banded in the #TimesUp movement to mute R Kelly, which has resulted in music platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music pulling back on the promotion of Kelly’s music. His music will still be available, it just won’t be highlighted.
Kelly’s Team Jumps Ship
In addition, Kelly’s female attorney, publicist, and assistant have also jumped ship. This can’t be a good sign. I’m sure they know much more about the inner workings of what goes on with Kelly’s alleged occult, behind closed doors. They don’t want to go down with him, permanently ruining their name and reputation, by supporting a predator.
It truly appears that all of Kelly’s dirt and wrongdoings are about to catch up to him. Although there will always be those that turn a blind eye to the singer’s misdeeds because he is such a gifted artist (which is reflected in his sold-out performance over the weekend in Fayetteville, NC).
Soon and very soon we will be transitioning from #TimesUp to #ItsAboutDamnTime, and others that follow behind R Kelly will think twice before violating young, impressionable women ever again. Until then, we are waiting and watching, with popcorn in hand.
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!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
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.
The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. 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.
