    R. Kelly was attacked by another inmate at a federal jail in Chicago, lawyers for the singer said Thursday. The 53-year-old, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, was on his bed at Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center on Tuesday night when another inmate approached him and began to punch him, Doug Anton, an attorney for Kelly, said. Anton said guards quickly stopped the attack and Kelly did not sustain injuries and X-rays revealed no fractures. Lawyer Mike Leonard, however, said that Kelly sustained "very minor bruising" following the attack. Another Kelly attorney, Steve Greenberg, said his legal team received "conflicting reports as to...

    New York Post ^ | May 30, 2019 | Lia Eustachewich
    R. Kelly was charged Thursday with 11 fresh counts of sex assault in Illinois — charges that carry a mandatory minimum of six years in prison. Four of the new charges, aggravated criminal sexual assault, are felony “Class X” counts, which are the most serious in Illinois, outside of first-degree murder, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. They carry a mandatory sentence of six to 30 years. In February, the embattled “Ignition” singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four victims, three of whom were underage.

    It is both harrowing and infinitely sad to see "Leaving Neverland" and "Surviving R. Kelly,"  two cable television documentaries about the crime of child sexual abuse, its perpetrators and victims. R. Kelly currently sits in a Chicago jail cell for failure to pay child support, while at the same time, years of allegations about his sexual abuse of underage girls, have finally caught up with him. The R&B star says he is unfairly accused and that his career has been ruined by the allegations. "Leaving Neverland" aired last week, profiling two men who say Michael Jackson sexually abused them when...

Many of the teenagers were vulnerable and without family support. The magazine builds a powerful case that friends, associates and ultimately his industry aided and abetted Singer. Yet Avi Lerner, whose Millennium Films is the studio producing...

    R Kelly has denied canceled upcoming concerts scheduled as part of his After Party tour just weeks after doing the same over allegations of running a sex cult. The 50-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a short video to refute TMZ's Monday report that he had scuttled two shows in Louisiana, one in Dallas and another in Los Angeles. In the short clip he says: 'Yo what's up Mt. Pleasant, Michigan it's your boy Kells and I just want y'all to know that I'm five minutes away from your city, I'm ready to do my thing and I want...

    A Cook County jury on Friday acquitted R&B superstar R. Kelly of child pornography charges, marking the end of a high-profile trial rich in courtroom drama and celebrity intrigue. The 41-year-old singer, whose real name is Robert Kelly, long denied charges that he videotaped himself engaging in a variety of sex acts with his then-underage goddaughter. Authorities said the female in the video could have been as young as 13 at the time. The jury of nine men and three women deliberated for 7 ½ hours before finding Kelly not guilty on all 14 counts. As the verdicts kept coming...

    The Chicago media were all agush on May 4th over the opening of Oprah Winfrey's musical treatment of The Color Purple. Breathless were the reports of who was in attendance and star struck was the celeb watching as the limos pulled up in front of the Cadillac Palace Theatre in downtown Chicago. But one "celebrity" that was invited by Oprah to attend the opening performance should raise eyebrows and should have spawned condemnation of Oprah Winfrey for his invitation; yet, the media was strangely silent about the impropriety of the invite. Before I go on with who the off color...
