R. Kelly Hit with 11 New Counts of Sexual Assault and Abuse Related Charges

R. Kelly has racked up 11 new sexual assault and abuse related charges that carry a maximum sentence of 30 years behind bars. After hearing witness testimony on Wednesday, new details about the singer’s involvement in trafficking his victims across state lines resulted in gains for the prosecution and steps toward justice for his victims.

Before a federal grand jury, witnesses provided testimony that R. Kelly was heavily involved in trafficking underage girls for his deviant proclivities. The numerous witnesses alleged that Kelly worked to arrange travel and lodging accommodations for his victims, leading underage girls across state lines. Information about his attempts to obstruct justice during his infamous trial also came to light. The disgraced singer worked to silence those in the know in 2008, sending any potential witnesses on an extensive paid vacation. Those who remained in the U.S. were subjected to witness intimidation and physical threats to secure they would not divulge any information to investigators. After hearing how far he would go to protect his interests, Cook County prosecutors charged R. Kelly with 11 additional counts, including three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a victim who was at least age 13 at the time.

The full list of charges Cook County prosecutors have slapped Robert Sylvester Kelly with is distressing. The once revered artist is facing four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault by force, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a minor. Having already been charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse, Kelly is currently on the hook for 22 counts for acts that took place from the late 90s until 2010. Despite these new allegations, R. Kelly and his legal representation, Steve Greenburg, are maintaining innocence.

Speaking with The Associated Press, Attorney Steve Greenburg claims the new charges “are not really new.” He is also expecting R. Kelly to emerge victorious and states the charges are for “the same conduct, just charged differently.” Although they believe things are looking up, their optimism is misplaced — there are multiple investigations underway in several states. Two additional probes are taking place in New York and the Northern District of Illinois is looking to prosecute R. Kelly as well. A case is also being built against the artist in Georgia, where his mansion was the scene for several of his depraved acts.

R Kelly is due to appear in court Thursday, June 6th.

Back to Da Cell! ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Alum Apollo Nida Arrested AGAIN After Violating Parole

mm

Published

on

Apollo Nida just celebrated his release from prison last week and now the RHOA alum is behind bars again! According to Page Six, US Marshals detained Apollo for breaking a technical condition of his release.

Having just finished five years behind bars, Nida was headed for a prison release program. But now he’ll have to postpone reuniting with his children and fiance because he violated his probation. According to a representative, Nida isn’t quite arrested, but there “was an order of the court bring him into custody”. While the terms of Apollo’s release aren’t public, he was allegedly detained for violating conditions of his release.

Apollo, who was released early due to credit for time served, was initially sentenced to 96-months behind bars. He was expected to complete a prison release program in Philadelphia. Now, it’s questionable what the future holds for the two-time felon.

Apollo’s fiance, Sherien Almufti hasn’t released a formal statement explaining what happened. However, she did post a recent photo of herself and Nida on Instagram with a scathing caption calling out his probation officer. Sherien said “For those who are confused @apollonida03 didn’t violate a goddamn thing. Another crime against a black man in the system. Jealousy is a disease and his PO will die mad!!”

Chris Brown Dragged For Insulting Victor Cruz, Karrueche Tran

Chris Brown’s recent behavior is a lesson that domestic violence has no limitations. The singer and proven abuser has shown his true colors again by leaving harassing comments beneath Victor Cruz’s Instagram post.

Targeting the fashion sense of Karrueche’s longtime boyfriend Victor Cruz, Chris Brown left several disparaging comments in close succession. Stating he needed a stylist and she should “upgrade ya man,” Chris Brown is still attacking his ex after five years of separation.

The one-time couple split in 2015 after a very public shouting match following Karrueche’s discovery that Chris fathered a love child with Nia Guzman, a stripper from Texas. During the lengthy argument, Chris forced himself into Karrueche’s vehicle and despite being dropped off at a different location, he arrived at her home to argue at 3 am. This led to Karrueche securing a restraining order against the singer in 2017, approved for 5 years.

During the hearing where Karrueche petitioned for a restraining order against Chris Brown, she provided evidence of threatening messages and testified that Chris had physically abused her. To make matters worse the physical violence took place while Chris Brown was on probation for the brutal abuse of Rihanna! The text messages Karrueche received contained threats like “Bitch I will beat the sh*t out of you” and “I will make your life hell.”

The comments Chris made beneath the photo of Karrueche and Victor were not light humor. In the past, Chris Brown left threatening messages beneath a photo of Tran and Michael B. Jordan. Stating “Imma kill blood”, Chris Brown threatened her and the actors lives, making good on his promise to “make you hate me even more.”

Fans of Karrueche were quick to point out how childish and threatening Chris Brown’s messages were. But what’s more important is that Chris Brown’s comments may violate the terms of his restraining order. If Karrueche’s terms include clauses for social media use, CB could be in trouble. Karrueche’s current order doesn’t expire until 2022, so maybe the singer should focus on backflips before he lands in jail.
