R Kelly Slapped With Federal Charges, Press Conference Interrupted by Savage Family

Arrested Thursday on a 13-count indictment, R Kelly has been brought up on federal charges. For his sexual abuses against women and minors, Kelly is facing 13 new charges including child pornography and enticing a minor. But the singer’s woes don’t end there. According to a five-count indictment from the Eastern District of New York, he is also facing racketeering charges.

While R Kelly was out walking his dog, agents of Homeland Security and New York Police Department detectives apprehended him. On the grounds of two separate indictments, officers began conducting a search of his Trump Tower residence in Chicago. As of now, R Kelly is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Illinois and is expected to appear in court later today.

“Where is my daughter?!”

R Kelly’s publicist, Darrell Johnson, held a press conference today in Atlanta where he discussed the events of the arrest, but he was interrupted by Joycelyn Savage’s family. Timothy Savage along with his wife, two daughters, and publicist Dontaye Carter arrived in Atlanta Friday morning after an unsuccessful wellness check in Chicago. The family says they arranged a visit to Kelly’s Trump Tower residence with the Chicago PD. Unfortunately, the Savages were unable to contact their daughter because the residence had been vacated. The Savages hoped to see their daughter for the first time since December 2016 and hear her voice for the first time since the phone call that followed the explosive interviews from two months ago.

Demanding to know the whereabouts of Joycelyn, the Savages thought their best course of action was to attack the press conference after hearing of Kelly’s arrest. However, Darrell Johnson denies having any knowledge of where Azriel Clary or Joycelyn Savage are. Johnson stated he had only arrived after spending time in New York and was not in Chicago. But Timothy Savage said they were tipped off that the girls were in Atlanta. Addressing previous attempts to reach an agreement, Johnson said he tried negotiating with the Savages but the talks fell through. Since then, there have been no updates provided to her family, which prompted the wellness check.

Baduizm is real and everybody wants some. 

Earlier this month, Grammy Award-winning R&B legend Erykah Badu, announced the upcoming release of the “Badu’s P*ssy” incense, sold exclusively on Badu World Market. What makes this product unique is Badu’s claim that it’s appropriately named. And we all know what legend says about Badu’s vajayjay, right? 

In a recent interview for 10 Magazine, Badu explained, “There’s an urban legend that my p*ssy changes men,” she said. “The men that I fall in love with, and fall in love with me, change jobs and lives.”

It seems everyone was eagerly awaiting the Badu effect because the incense sold out within 19 minutes of its release. 

Badu took to her Instagram to share the news and thank fans for their support, saying, “Well guys… thank you for making our debut of ‘Badussy’ […] sell out in a matter of 19 minutes. Of course, with preorders, because I know you guys want it and you want it bad.”

Currently, it’s unclear when products will be available again, but for those lucky few able to secure the first orders “created with the ashes of Badu’s underwear. Pure resin, handmade, sun-dried. And also created with essential oils and herbs,” — they can expect their package sometime in March, according to her website.

So, were you a part of the lucky few?

The Final Fairwell for Kobe and Gianna Bryant

mm

Published

on

Two weeks ago, Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant were put to rest in a private burial at the Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar. 

Today, celebrities, sports legends, NBA superstars and thousands of heartbroken fans were able to pay tribute to Bryant and Gigi at a public memorial held in the House that Kobe Built, the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. 

Hours before the doors opened, fans began to line up outside of the arena patiently, awaiting an opportunity to say farewell. At 8:30 a.m. PT the sea of adoring fans entered somberly, dressed in purple and gold Lakers jerseys and homemade T-shirts in remembrance of the former NBA superstar.

The memorial opened with Beyonce singing one of Bryants favorite songs, “XO” followed by “Halo.” In addition to Beyonce, Alicia Keys delivered a rousing performance of Beethoven’s “Piano Sonata No. 14,” and Christina Aguilera performed “Ave Maria” in Italian.

Comedian and Talk Show Host, Jimmy Kimmel fought back tears as he served as “master of ceremonies,” but it was NBA great, Shaquille O’Neal, who provided the comic relief. 

O’Neal took to the stage and shared a hilarious story about the day Bryant earned his respect. “The day Kobe gained my respect, the guys were complaining, said ‘Shaq, Kobe’s not passing the ball. I said ‘I’ll talk to him. I said, ‘Kobe, there’s no ‘I’ in ‘team.” Kobe said, ‘I know, but there’s an ‘M-E’ in there mother f—er.’ 

The crowd responded with laughter. 

However, nothing was more moving than the moment Vanessa Bryant took the stage and spoke so eloquently about her late husband and “baby girl.” 

She shared, “Gianna Bryant is an amazingly sweet and gentle soul. She was always thoughtful. She always would kiss me goodnight, kissed me good morning. There were a few occasions where I was absolutely tired from being up with Bianca and Capri and I thought she had left school without saying goodbye. I’d text and say ‘no kiss?’ And Gianna would reply with ‘Mama, I kissed you but you were asleep, and I didn’t want to wake you.”

Fighting back the tears, she gave us all a glimpse into the Bryant love story. 

“He was the most amazing husband. Kobe loved me more than I could ever express or put into words. He was an early bird and I was a night owl. I was fire and he was ice and vice versa at times. We balanced each other out.

He would do anything for me. I have no idea how I deserved a man that loved and wanted me more than Kobe. He was charismatic, a gentleman, he was loving, adoring and romantic. He was truly the romantic one in our relationship and looked forward to Valentine’s days and our anniversaries every year. He planned special anniversary trips and a special traditional gift for every year of our marriage. He even handmade my most treasured gifts.”

Let’s continue to keep the Bryant family in our thoughts and prayers. R.I.P to the eternal #GirlDad!
