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 The protection order was later rescinded.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.
Charles Barkley had ‘head’ on his mind as he sped through the streets of Arizona….at least that’s what he told the cops:
Charles Barkley told Arizona cops that he ran a stop sign because he was in a hurry to pick up a girl who had “given him a ‘blow job’ one week earlier,” which the former NBA star described as “the best one he had ever had in his life.” According to a Gilbert Police Department report, a copy of which you’ll find here, police asked Barkley where he was going at the time of the 1:26 AM traffic stop in Scottsdale. “You want the truth? I was gonna drive around the corner and get a blow job,” answered Barkley, who is pictured in the above mug shot. A cooperative Barkley also joked with a civilian police employee that, “I’ll tattoo your name on my ass” if it would get him out of the DUI charge. Barkley, 45, was busted after failing field sobriety tests, and had blood drawn so investigators could establish his alcohol content. Barkley was cited for a misdemeanor charge and released at the scene, thus avoiding a trip to the Maricopa County jail.
*sigh*….now THAT’s a Bad B! I need ole girl to come forward to claim Superheads throne!

Porsche Foxx, pictured above during the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, has been terminated (yet again) from Atlanta radio station V-103. Program director Reggie Rouse sent an e-mail Wednesday informing staff of Foxx’s departure, and she has been removed from the list of DJs on the V-103 website. Her second stint as midday host lasted just over 16 months and although the station cites low ratings for the termination, sources say that the host may have failed a random drug test.

OCTOBER 8–Angered by a delay in the receipt of his voter registration card, a Louisiana man today threatened to shoot election officials, claiming that he urgently needed to cast a ballot to “keep the nigger out of office,” according to police. Wade Williams, 75, was arrested this morning on a felony terrorizing charge after allegedly calling the Registrar of Voters and warning that he would come to the state office and empty his shotgun unless he got his registration card. Using profanity and racial slurs, Williams told a state official “about needing to vote to ‘keep the nigger out of office,” according to an Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office affidavit, a copy of which you’ll find here. Though the document does not name the candidate to which Williams is so violently opposed, it seems likely he was referring to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. After being arrested at his Monroe home, Williams was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center, where the above mug shot was snapped. En route to the jail, he “continued his ‘tirade’ about niggers and also stated that he had a shotgun, but had it hidden at his residence,” (Source)

*Sigh* Yes…you read right! Rapper DMX lost it during his hearing in a Miami-Dade County courtroom Tuesday morning after learning he would spend another month in jail.
“I ain’t going back to no fc*king jail,” said DMX (aka Earl Simmons). “Oh, well that just ingratiated you to me,” said Judge Lawrence Schwartz. “I’ve never heard the F-word before, so it’s OK.” The judge then warned Simmons’ lawyer that the rapper had better not curse in his courtroom again.
The mugshot above is from Simmons’ most recent arrest at a Miami-Dade County Wal-Mart earlier this month after failing to appear at a court hearing in Arizona. He was also arrested in June for not having a valid driver’s license. Check out the courtroom video under the cut: Continue Reading…
Sources say that Da Brat (aka Shawntae Harris) has struck a plea deal with Dekalb County prosecutors in her pending assault case. To refresh your memory, Brat was arrested last fall after she attacked a waitress with a bottle during Jermaine Dupri’s Halloween Party at Studio 72 (View Mugshot). I’ve heard that the deal is for Harris to turn herself in by the end of the week to begin serving a 1 year sentence, however Dekalb County’s website lists her pretrial scheduled for August 22nd. Brat has been out on bond since November 1, 2007. Will update you as I get additional details…
