R. Kelly Scams Fans With 28-Second Performance

R. Kelly announced an impromptu performance at a Springfield, Illinois venue Saturday night. Now fans who paid the exorbitant cover charge are demanding restitution after Kelly arrived late and performed for just 28 seconds.

Asking the media to “take it easy on me,” Kelly hoped that onlookers would be gracious to the fallen star. Reduced to cheap club appearances, Kelly said “this is how I got to get paid now, for right now,” and told fans to join him at the Dirty South Lounge. Prior to his arrival to the club, cover was $100, but once Kelly arrived entry fees were reduced to just $50.

According to ABC Springfield, just 100 attendees remained in the lounge which holds 450 persons. Kelly mingled with club-goers, smoked cigars and drank, but that only took up 35 minutes of his time. Having arrived at roughly 1:30 a.m., the dive bar patrons expected Kelly to sing the remainder of the evening. But once he grabbed the mic, he only thanked supporters, sang for 28-seconds, and the club closed at 3 a.m.

Fans who spoke with reporters on the scene expressed their disappointment and said it wasn’t worth the coin. However, when asked why they attended in the first place, they stated they separated the art from the artist and didn’t fully believe the victims. In addition to being relegated to dive bar crooning, now Robert S. Kelly is a SoundCloud singer. The former so-called king of R&B released a track in January 2019 which currently holds a mere 256k listens.

The 52-year-old singer is currently facing, 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

R Kelly Skips Court, Loses Sexual Abuse Civil Lawsuit

R Kelly

R Kelly has lost a civil lawsuit by default after failing to appear in court. Originally filed in February 2019, the suit alleged that Kelly victimized a then 16 year-old girl on her birthday in 1998. Now 36, the survivor is one of the four alleged victims in the case for which Kelly is facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

April 23rd, Judge Moira S. Johnson ruled in favor of the alleged victim, identified only as H.W., because neither Kelly nor his representation appeared in court. According to the lawsuit, Kelly had an assistant provide her with his phone number after seeing her at a restaurant. H.W. was then encouraged to come to his studio, where R Kelly promised her a spot in an upcoming music video. Over the course of several months, Kelly abused her regularly. However, it wasn’t until the survivor attended therapy that she understood the behavior was inappropriate.

The suit stated, “Prior to that time, (H.W.) was unable to link in her mind the acts of childhood sexual abuse by the defendant to her fragile emotional and mental state and her problems stemming from that abuse.” H.W. stated she felt “great shame, guilt, self-blame, confusion” and suffered from depression along with a slew of additional distresses from months of abuse at Kelly’s hands.

While Kelly and his legal representation failed to appear in court, his publicist Darrell Johnson commented to The Chicago Sun-Times on the matter. Stating “We don’t care about the lawsuit. The lawsuit means nothing to us.”, Johnson seems to imply the singer never intended to fight the civil suit. Some are speculating the cost for his legal representation along with any restitution for damages would prove to be more than the singer can afford. Judge Johnson will have another hearing on May 8th where she will decide the amount R Kelly must pay in damages.

Prince William Meghan Markle Catherine Middleton Prince Harry

After months of using Meghan Markle as the perfect scapegoat for tension between the royals, reports of Prince William’s infidelity have surfaced. According to multiple news outlets, the expected king has allegedly cheated with Catherine Middleton’s best friend, Rose Hanbury.

Surely his father’s son, Prince William has brought shame upon the royal family for repeating the lecherous mistake of an extramarital affair. But his indiscretions carry a twist. Instead of carrying the shame as Prince Charles did, William shifted blame onto Meghan, concocting the many negative stories that plagued media outlets himself. With this knowledge, it is now apparent why there is such distance between the sons of Princess Diana.

The marriage of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has allegedly been on the rocks for quite some time. But things have recently come to a head in recent months as the couple dissolved their friendship with Rose Hanbury and her husband, David Rocksavage — aka the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley. pronounced “Chumley”.

When rumors of an affair between William and Rose began circulating, Catherine immediately confronted him as the tryst took place during her third pregnancy. To quell the oncoming storm , Prince William contacted his lawyer, urging him to suppress any information that could hit U.K outlets and threatening offensive publications with legal action. In addition, media outlets that cover the royals’ goings-on began to heavily deride Meghan Markle, fueling rumors she was difficult or causing Kate’s disappointment. While news of his affair has been spreading for several weeks, it’s validity remained questioned until April 24th. Catherine Middleton returned to London last night with only her 3 children and the royal family is refusing to comment on the matter.

Bun B

When Bernard “Bun B” Freeman said “I got 20/10 vision and my trigger finger steady,” DeMonte Jackson was not listening! The iconic Houston rapper shot the armed intruder who entered his home Tuesday night.

According to the police report, DeMonte Jackson’s attempted robbery began when he approached Bun B’s southwest Houston home and rang the doorbell. Anticipating a delivery from Amazon, Bun B’s wife, Queenie, opened the door without looking to see who was on the other side and found herself staring down the barrel of a gun. Wearing a ski mask and pointing the weapon at Queenie, Jackson forced entry into the home while shouting demands.

Hearing the disturbance, Bun B quickly armed himself and made his way downstairs. Upon seeing the intruder holding his wife hostage, Bun B tried negotiating with Jackson. Fearful for her safety, he told the intruder to take their vehicle from the garage. With Queenie out of harm’s way, Bun B led Jackson to the car, where he confronted him. Exchanging gunfire in the garage, Bun B shot the intruder in the shoulder. However, Jackson escaped. Running away from the property, he laid low before seeking care at a hospital where he would later be apprehended.

DeMonte Jackson was charged with one count of burglary and two counts of aggravated robbery. Neither Queenie or Bun B sustained physical injuries.
