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.

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

Published

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen
