Singer R. Kelly has been released from the balls and chains of marriage and is free to surf the net for minors mingle with the single chicks! Most of us are way to old for the former R&B superstar, but hey…maybe he’s changed his ways. At any rate, for those of you who care….Kelz is back on the market.
The couple, who had been married for 11 years, have two daughters and a son together. “The parties have reached an amicable resolution concerning all issues related to their marriage, and will share joint custody of their three children,” their Chicago-based lawyers said in a joint statement. “The details of this agreement will remain confidential and the family requests that their privacy be respected during this time.”
Despite this “amicable” split, in the fall of 2005, Andrea Kelly, a former backup dancer for the Chicago-based R&B star, went to court to obtain an emergency restraining order against the singer, claiming physical abuse, harassment, stalking and interfering with her personal liberty. She wrote in her petition that she didn’t want any contact with Kelly “at all, by any means.” At the time, Andrea had moved out of the home the couple shared, and R. Kelly released a statement saying, “My wife and I had a heated argument, and we are now in the process of working it out.” The protection order was later rescinded.
The initial split came less than a year after Kelly saw charges dropped against him in Florida for having sex with an underage girl, but amid a long-running court case in Chicago in which Kelly was accused of child pornography based on a widely-distributed videotapethat allegedly showed the singer having sex with an under age girl. He was acquitted of those charges last year.
Kelly was also briefly married to then 15-year-old singer Aaliyah for five months, but that marriage was reportedly annulled in February 1995.
One rule of being a gentleman is to keep your cool and composure at all cost, but right about now I gotta loosen up this tie and take off this expensive suit jacket and talk to the people for a minute. The haters especially. Pardon my french, but what the fuck is wrong with y’all!?! Are you so desperate for an R&B bad guy that you gotta find a way to create one in me??
Okay, the comment about light skinned babies…….an obvious joke, maybe not a good joke, but clearly a joke.
(in case you missed it…check the 6:50 mark:)
Y’all REALLY took that serious!?!I understand that a hater’s job is to hate, clearly. But it’s when people start feeding in to what a hater is saying that something must be addressed.
The whole gay thing. For goodness sake it’s been 4 years!!!! Y’all still on that huh? The whole “boys” song, and the song “go over there”. See this is what happens when people steal. These songs were clearly written for women. Had you been patient, you would have heard them the way they were supposed to be heard, with the voice of the intended artist on em’. But noooo, someone gets a hold of these demos and suddenly everybody forgets that I write songs for women. Riiight.
I tell People Magazine that Young Jeezy’s crib is right next to mine and that once I saw him in there from across the way. I then make a JOKE about him maybe not wanting to walk around naked in his crib with the shades up cause the buildings are THAT close to each other,
A peaceful demonstration turned into a riot Wednesday night in Oakland, California. Protestors, angry about the shooting, smashed businesses and set fires in downtown Oakland, and confronted Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums on the steps of city hall…all while yelling “No Justice No Peace.”
I posted earlier this week about the BART police officer who fatally shot an unarmed man on the subway January 1, 2009. Well, Oscar Grant, III has now been laid to rest and many are in fear of police retaliation based on the video of the murder coming out. The BART Transit Police officer who shot the the young man, Johannes Mehserle, 27, has quit the force this amidst community outrage and has also received death threats. He has also refused questioning by the police internal review board investigating his shooting of 22-year-old Oscar Grant but police officials claim that the officer meant to use his taser and NOT his gun…(yeah right!)
At least 105 people were arrested for a variety of offenses Wednesday night. Police said charges for those arrested included assault on a police officer, looting, vandalism and arson. Some of those detained were found to have drugs, which added another count to the charges.
Angry about the New Year’s Day shooting by a BART police officer, protesters smashed businesses and set fires in downtown Oakland, and confronted Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums on the steps of city hall.
Oakland police beefed up their prescence on the streets Thursday morning, with officers in riot gear patrolling the streets as they anticipated more protests. Businesses downtown were cleaning up, dealing with the aftermath of smashed windows and cars.
Derek Blanks recently shot NeNe Leakes from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Derek, whose earned the title of “Super celebrity photographer” a master behind the camera! He turns his subjects into a work of art and all of his images come out bangin!! Me next Derek…ME! ME!
I, for one, wouldn’t throw Young Jeezy out of bed for eating crackers (it’s no secret how much I loves me some Jay Jenkins and Antwan Patton) and word is KeyCo has been known to throw a hissy fit over that D a time or two…but now Jeezy’s got a certain R&B singer riding his jock:
Singer NE-YO’s has become a voyeur since moving into an exclusive Atlanta, Georgia neighborhood, and discovering he lives next door to rapper YOUNG JEEZY. The So Sick hitmaker can see right into Jeezy’s Buckhead pad, and even claims to have caught the hip hop star naked. He tells America’s People magazine,
“Just chillin’ one day, I was like, ‘Is that… Jeezy? “I hit him up: ‘Yo, you probably shouldn’t walk around naked – I can see you.” (Source)
Ne-Yo….down boy! *sigh* Speaking of Jay Jenkins, he was recently spotted invading the midwest at Club Karma in Columbus, Ohio where he almost lost his pants. I don’t blame Ne-Yo for looking…I’d be peeping too if he were my neighbor! Shouts out to Mirrorlove Productions for the clip:
Beyonce hit up the New York premier of “Notorious” yesterday glowing from head to toe. Mrs. Carter, fresh off the heels of a romantic getaway with her boo, Jay-Z, looked fresh and relaxed. I was tryna see if she’s still rocking her “Obama for yo Mama” nails but I couldn’t tell…
In related news, Bey was just nominated for five NAACP awards, including best female recording artist, best video for both “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies” and best supporting actress for Cadillac Records. Do you really expect anything less from this superstar?
