Woman Breaks Nondisclosure Agreement To Expose The Underage Sexual Relationship She Had With R. Kelly

Just when you thought the controversy surrounding R. Kelly couldn't get worse… On Monday, Buzzfeed News brought to light another alleged victim of the Ignition singer, who claims she was paid to keep quiet about a sexual relationship she had with the hitmaker when she was only 16. How awful. Related: R. Kelly Denies His Concerts Are [...] Just when you thought the controversy surrounding R. Kelly couldn't get worse... On Monday, Buzzfeed News brought to light another alleged victim of the Ignition singer, who claims she was paid to keep quiet about a sexual relationship she had with the hitmaker when she was only 16. How awful. Related: R. Kelly Denies His Concerts Are Being Canceled Apparently, Jerhonda Pace (née Johnson) was an avid fan of the chart topper and made a point to attend his 2008 child pornography trial. Sadly, after defending Kelly in numerous publications, Jerhonda would allegedly go on to be one of the A-lister's many victims. Although the now 24-year-old mother-of-three is breaking a nondisclosure agreement, Jerhonda says she felt compelled to come forward after hearing reports of Kelly's supposed sex cult. Pace explained: "If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that's what I will do. I didn't have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He's brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson. I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped." Jerhonda first met her idol outside of the Cook County Court and Kelly would make an effort to "always" speak to the then teen when they'd cross paths. On their court house meeting, the Chicago native shared: "He didn't have anything to sign, and neither did I, but my friend reached into her pocket and found an old bank slip, so I got his autograph on her bank slip. I laminated that." Unfortunately, this wasn't the last time Jerhonda interacted with the superstar as a friend and employee of Kelly's friended Pace on Myspace in May of 2009. The unnamed friend then invited Pace to a party Kelly was throwing at a mansion in Olympia Fields, IL. Jerhonda was "nervous" about the meet up as she had lied to her parents about where she was going. While at the bash, Jerhonda had one on one time with Kelly, which resulted in the I'm A Flirt performer putting his phone number into the teen's cellphone. Pace claims she did not tell Kelly that she was underage, but would later inform private investigators that she had told the songwriter that she was 19. In June 2009, Kelly invited Pace to his residence and sent an employee to pick her up in a black SUV. Upon her arrival at the controversial celeb's pad, Pace recalls: "He told me that he wanted me to undress for him [and] walk back and forth like I was modeling." The two then proceeded to have oral sex. After the sexual encounter, Jerhonda claims Kelly ordered her to sign documents claiming she had stolen jewelry and cash from him and that her parents forced her to blackmail him. Per Pace, none of these allegations were true. A few days later, the youngster returned and Kelly took her virginity. The underage Jerhonda was drunk at the time. Related: One Of R. Kelly's Victims Has Lawyered Up! Over the course of the next seven months, the industry vet continued a sexual relationship with the teen. On their bedroom escapades, Jerhonda relayed: "I had to call him ‘daddy,' and he would call me ‘baby.' He wanted me to have two pigtails, and I had to go out and find little schoolgirl outfits." It's said the 50-year-old filmed many of their XXX moments together without Jerhonda's permission. Ugh. By July 2009, Pace made Kelly aware of her real age. According to the supposed victim, Kelly assured her that it was fine, but advised her to lie about her age to others in their circle. Their relationship took a darker turn when Jerhonda started spending weekends with Kelly at his Olympia Fields home. Supposedly, Pace was forced to follow certain rules -- which included handing over her mobile device, wearing baggy clothes, asking permission to eat, go to the bathroom, leave the property, and/or shower -- and if she didn't follow these rules she was mentally and physically abused. When asked why she went along with the music legend's demands, Pace stated: "At the time, I didn't know what I liked, honestly. I just knew that I liked his music, so I was pretty much accepting of anything that came with him at the time." Not to mention, Pace spent time at the mansion alongside a 17-year-old friend. The unnamed pal still lives with Kelly to this day. After a few troubling instances, Pace decided to end her relationship with Kelly in 2010. Jerhonda reached out to Chicago lawyer Susan E. Loggans, as the powerhouse attorney was known for representing underaged women in lawsuits against R. Kelly. The once Kelly superfan chose to pursue a civil lawsuit rather than criminal charges as she felt the star would get off like he had in 2008. Within a matter of weeks, Loggans had negotiated a settlement for Pace, but there was a catch. The victim was required to sign a nondisclosure agreement and had to promise that she would not file criminal charges against the scandalized artist. Buzzfeed News claims to have reviewed all of the documents involved in the settlement. Kelly's legal team has since denied Pace's allegations as they noted in a statement: "The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false, and are being made by individuals known to be dishonest. It is clear these continuing stories are the result of the effort of those with personal agendas who are working in concert to interfere with and damage his career. Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation." Man, oh man. We're sure Kelly's PR and legal teams are scrambling right about now. [Image via WENN.].....»»

As we previously reported, the reality TV star is looking to make a comeback by sticking to a healthy lifestyle with the help of a nutritionist. More details about why the dad really wants to keep with it reveal it has everything to do with his and Blac Chyna's child. Related: Amber Rose Defends Chyna's Lawsuit Against Rob A source dished to People: "It's like Rob is finally realizing the seriousness of being overweight and not taking care of himself. His family has been pushing very hard for him to work on himself. They keep telling him that he has no choice because Dream needs a healthier dad." Even so, it's been "very difficult for Rob to get motivated, especially when it comes to his diet" since they claim he "is very much addicted to junk food." But with the help of a professional, they hope he will make better choices: "He is now working with a nutritionist to make healthier choices. Rob needs someone to be held accountable to. Someone that he sees on a regular basis and that won't accept bad food decisions. His family is hoping he will finally change." Amid his new journey, the 30-year-old is also dealing with a revenge porn lawsuit filed by his baby momma. Plus, he's sued her for battery, assault, and vandalism. The drama is never ending. It's also unclear when, but Rob has deleted his Instagram account. Maybe it has something to do with him working on himself?? [Image via Media Punch/Twitter.].....»»

Kesha Gets Real About Her Friendship With Taylor Swift, ‘Painful’ Eating Disorder, & Much More In Rolling Stone!

Following up the release of her album, Rainbow, Kesha bared all for Rolling Stone! Featured in their October issue, the songstress spoke up about everything from her friendship with Taylor Swift to suffering from an eating disorder. The one name she doesn't mention?? Dr. Luke.

Featured in their October issue, the songstress spoke up about everything from her friendship with Taylor Swift to suffering from an eating disorder. The one name she doesn't mention?? Dr. Luke. Video: Kesha & Macklemore Are Timeless Lovers In Good Old Days Just hinting at their legal troubles, Kesha mentioned: "I've been through a lot, and a lot we can't talk about." However, Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal, who worked with the 30-year-old on the album, had strong words about the controversial producer for Rolling Stone: "When she was going through her shit, we were like her big brothers. I was like, 'Who do I fuck up? You want me to go to his place right now? You want me to beat that fucking contract out of him right now? I will.' That's how strongly I felt about it. That's not even a lie, man." The singer has fiercely loyal friends, including T.Swift! As you may remember, the pop singer donated $250K to help cover her expenses amid her battle against Dr. Luke. Speaking of the LWYMMD singer, Kesha explained she "is a fucking sweetheart. Very, very sweet, very, very genuine, extremely generous": "[Taylor] picks up the phone every time I call her. My mom doesn't even always pick up the phone!" And she kept mum about any of Tay's recent controversies: "I'm not really up on my pop culture. Should I know something about it?" The Woman artist also described her pride over her new album: "I feel like myself for the first time ever. And I made a record I'm extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts – I excavated the most gnarly lyrics that were so difficult for me. And people still like it! It's really beautiful, and it's very healing. I feel like I'm being seen for what I actually am, and people are OK with it." But it brings up a sensitive subject of her past issues with an eating disorder: "'Perfect' is a tricky word. Because it's like, 'What the fuck is perfect? And who gets to decide?' Like, they can shove it up their ass." The star divulged: "I really just thought I wasn't supposed to eat food. And then if I ever did, I felt very ashamed, and I would make myself throw up because I'd think, 'Oh, my God, I can't believe I actually did that horrible thing. I'm so ashamed of myself because I don't deserve to eat food. I was slowly, slowly starving myself. And the worse I got and the sicker I got, the better a lot of people around me were saying that I looked. They would just be like, 'Oh, my gosh, keep doing whatever you're doing! You look so beautiful, so stunning.'" And it was then at a dinner party, when her anxiety over it reached its height: "I was like, 'Oh, my God, what if they walk outside and see this food in a bush? Or they see it in the garbage can?' And I just had all this mounting anxiety. And then finally I was like, 'Fuck. This. Shit. Fuck this shit. I'm hungry!' And I am so anxious that I feel like I'm going to explode from all the secrets. All the secret times I'm pretending to eat or other times I'm purging, and I'm trying to not let anybody know. And I'm just fucking sick of this shit. And I remember just shaking because I was so fed up, so anxious, and I was just mad that I had let myself get to that point... I didn't know how to even eat. At that point, I'd forgotten how to do it." Kesha admitted herself into rehab to meet with a nutritionist: "I just remember crying into a carbohydrate being like, 'I can't eat it. It's going to make me fat, and if I'm fat, I can't be a singer because pop stars can't eat food – they can't be fat.' ...I did just take my life into my own hands and choose life over a slow, painful, shameful self-imposed death. And I need to stop just being so fucking mean to myself." Now, the performer sounds much kinder to herself and to her body. And despite everything going on with the lawsuits, she's been so brave speaking up about what's important. Read on for more of her interview, and be sure to take a look at her cover (below): On needing to work on music in the facility: "You don't want to have anything that could be at all used for suicide. And I was like, 'I respect all of that, but please let me have a keyboard or my brain's going to explode. My head has all these song ideas in it, and I just really need to play an instrument.'" On sitting "next to Rihanna and Katy Perry and all that" at a show, remembering being bullied in the cafeteria as a kid: "I just felt like so the outcast, the same person sitting at the lunch table." On Ke$ha: "I loved what I was doing when I was doing it. It was so much fucking fun! I wouldn't change all the Worst Dressed lists, I wouldn't change the mohawk, I wouldn't change all that shit. I'm proud of myself for being that ballsy young girl that was ready to take life by the balls." On not going to rehab for alcohol or drug-related issues: "I used to drink more, and now I don't. And that's fine. Truth is, I don't really like alcohol that much." On developing feelings for her boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter: "Then he kissed me, and it was the nicest kiss I ever had. I was like, 'Wow, you're such a pure soul. Holy shit.' And I knew from that moment, 'I gotta hold on to you.'" Kesha appears on our latest cover. You can read the story in full at RollingStone.com. In the feature, she discusses her latest album ‘Rainbow,’ her legal troubles, Taylor Swift and more. "I feel like myself," she tells us, "for the first time ever. And I made a record I’m extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts."

John Oliver Spoils Megyn Kelly"s Daytime Debut By Reminding Us Of All The Nutterball Shit She Said During Her Fox News Days!

Well, it's official. Megyn Kelly is now an easy, breezy, APOLITICAL daytime talk show host! The journalist made her Today Show debut on Monday, making it clear she was pivoting from politics to human interest pieces. For the past few weeks, NBC's promotional campaign has touted the Megyn Kelly Today host as a "unifying force" in a [...] Well, it's official. Megyn Kelly is now an easy, breezy, APOLITICAL daytime talk show host! The journalist made her Today Show debut on Monday, making it clear she was pivoting from politics to human interest pieces. For the past few weeks, NBC's promotional campaign has touted the Megyn Kelly Today host as a "unifying force" in a time of social and political divisiveness. Video: Megyn Admits Trump Influenced Her Decision To Leave Fox! But John Oliver is here to remind us about the years before Kelly was trying to be a discount Oprah Winfrey, back when she was a Fox News anchor pushing the network's divisive agenda. On Sunday, Last Week Tonight aired a low-light reel showing some of Kelly's most Fox News-y moments from her years on the cable news channel -- and most of those comments about religion, Black Lives Matter, and white Santa would NOT fly over at NBC! Ch-ch-check it out (below)! Sadly, the new, non-political daytime Kelly wasn't much of an improvement, according to viewers on Twitter. Standing firm that she would NOT be discussing Donald Trump, the TV personality kicked off her debut hour discussing the death of her father, then giving an awkwardly stiff interview with the Will & Grace cast. Those who witnessed the debut episode said it left much to be desired -- and quite a few viewers made it clear they would much rather tune in to NBC's Tamron Hall over the former political pundit: If you're not watching Megyn Kelly's morning debut right now . . . It's one of the more mortifying things I've seen in a while — Richard Lawson (@rilaws) September 25, 2017 For the first time in my life I'm figuring out what else is on tv in the morning besides @todayshow because of Megyn Kelly. — Elyssa (@ElyssaK) September 25, 2017 "Megyn Kelly Today" so far feels like this silent scream of smiling at fellow guests while wanting to leave a terrible dinner party. — Omar L. Gallaga (@omarg) September 25, 2017 We don't need another talk show with this Fox News person. That is how she will always be regarding. Mistake by NBC. Megyn Kelly will fail — Marina Jason (@marinagypsygirl) September 25, 2017 I wonder if anyone at NBC knelt down during the Megyn Kelly open for oppressed Tamron Hall. — Tim Graham (@TimJGraham) September 25, 2017 I would have like to see @tamronhall doing this instead of Megyn Kelly. — Colisha Robinson (@cocobutter355) September 25, 2017 Will YOU be tuning in to Megyn Kelly Today?

Uh Oh — Publicists Are Reportedly Refusing To Put Their Celebrity Clients On Megyn Kelly Today!

Megyn Kelly won't be booking A-list guests anytime soon. Not only has the blonde TV personality been hit with criticism and poor ratings, it seems that celebrities are avoiding her talk show like the plague. According to Variety, a number of celebrity publicists are uncomfortable booking their clients for appearances on Megyn Kelly Today. Video: Jimmy Kimmel [...] Megyn Kelly won't be booking A-list guests anytime soon. Not only has the blonde TV personality been hit with criticism and poor ratings, it seems that celebrities are avoiding her talk show like the plague. According to Variety, a number of celebrity publicists are uncomfortable booking their clients for appearances on Megyn Kelly Today. Video: Jimmy Kimmel Is Eager To Have Donald Trump On His Show Thankfully, these PR mavens aren't protesting the Today show altogether, as one unnamed powerhouse publicist shared: "I'm not booking anyone on her show. I literally haven't pitched anyone even from right out the gate. The buzz that is out there is so bad." YIKES! And this publicist isn't the only one feeling this way as another spin-doctor noted: "I won't plan to have others go on,. None specifically have been offered or asked to, but it'll be my preference not to." Not to mention, it's said that publicists have been hesitant of the daytime program from the get-go. Before the program aired, producers from Kelly's show made a trip to El Lay in order to lock in PR relationships. Per inside sources, the meetings lacked direction, despite a promise of a "lighter" and more "inspirational" Megyn. Thus, few celebs jumped on the chance to appear on the new show. Another industry professional cited Megyn's Fox News past as a problem. The third publicist mentioned: "I don't even know if it's as much her as it is Fox News. Because she came from Fox News, she was set up for failure because the industry is so polarized now and no one wants to touch anything associated with Trump." This is certainly troubling news for Kelly and co. as her competitors -- such as The View, Live! With Kelly & Ryan, etc. -- have all been able to book major guests. It probably doesn't help that Kelly has offended high profile visitors, like the Will & Grace cast and Jane Fonda. NBC has moved quickly to shut down these allegations as a spokesperson told the publication: "We have celebrities booked for weeks and months to come." The network rep went on to note that Goldie Hawn, Alec Baldwin, and Miles Teller are all scheduled upcoming guests. Hmmm, very inneresting. Also, not EVERY PR expert in town is ruling out Kelly's show as some claim they are just waiting to see how everything pans out. In fact, Morgan Freeman's power publicist Stan Rosenfield said the actor had a "good experience" on the show and "looks forward to returning." Regardless, the former Fox News lackey seems unfazed by the negative feedback as it's rumored she expected the transition to be a difficult one. A tipster close to Kelly relayed: "Of course, there are going to be kinks in the first weeks, but people are being negative and unfair... [Stephen] Colbert got killed his first week and first month." We guess we'll just have to wait and see!! [Image via NBC.].....»»

Marteen"s "Sriracha" and the Story Behind the Spicy Song

Marteen Estevez dropped his free-spirited “Sriracha” video yesterday, which is full of his spicy, slick, and soulful style. The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I [...] Marteen Estevez dropped his free-spirited “Sriracha” video yesterday, which is full of his spicy, slick, and soulful style. The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I call you lil’ ‘racha.” The Barkeley-born singer is emerging as a hyper creative, singing, dancing wunderkind. “My music is a modern take on nineties R&B with a little Bay Area edge,” shares 16-year-old Marteen, who just signed to Warner Bros. Records. “Coming from Northern California, you have a certain mentality. It’s an indescribable attitude.” Click inside to read JustJared.com‘s exclusive interview with Marteen… MARTEEN ESTEVEZ INTERVIEW JJ: Congratulations on Sriracha, the video is amazing! Riding on the hood of the car is such an awesome shot. Did you conceptualize the video? ME: Thanks. Not completely, but I wanted to make sure it represented the Bay Area since that’s where I’m from, and the standing on cars comes from the hyphy movement of the early 2000′s. We shot the whole thing in West Oakland and had a lot of fun. JJ: How did the song come about? Did you write it and who did you work with on the song? ME: The song started kinda as a joke one day when I was eating some fried rice with Sriracha on it in the studio and told my producer JR [Rotem] that we should make a song called Sriracha. I told him I wanted it to have a fun feel and he started playing the piano part that’s in the song. The beginning of the hook came to me right away and I started playing around with it. We knew as soon as I laid down the first couple melodies that it was gonna be dope. We showed it to my homies Marty James and YMTK a couple days later and they helped us finish it. JJ: Do you really love Sriracha as a hot sauce and spicy food in general? What are your favorite spicy foods? ME: I do love Sriracha actually. I don’t put hella of it on stuff, but I like to spice things up a little. I also really like Frank’s hot sauce. I don’t eat a lot of overly spicy foods but I mess with curry and love Thai and Indian food. JJ: Name the top five celebs who have bodies like Sriracha. ME: Well even though I say “body like Sriracha” in the song I’m not actually talking about a perfect body cause that could be different for everyone depending on what you like, but I more mean an attitude and confidence. I would say my top five based on that is Rihanna, Gal Gadot, Zendaya, Ella Mai, and Cardi B. Betty White a lil’ racha too tho. (laughs) JJ: You have a unique sense of style. Who do you look to for fashion inspiration? Are there certain movies, eras or people who have informed your look? ME: Yeah I figured out that I really like clothes from the 80′s and 90′s. My dad jokes that I like grandpa clothes cause I see old people all the time and say how fire their clothes are. (laughs) Fashion is one of our biggest ways to show self-expression and I like to wear things that make me feel happy. JJ: Your new haircut is very polarizing. People either LOVE or HATE your version of the bowl cut. What made you get it done and how long will you be keeping it? ME: Yeah it’s funny cause you’re right, people are like WTF is up with your hair or they really like it and respect me having my own style. I cut it cause I had the same haircut for awhile and wanted to change it up. I wanted to get something that nobody my age really had and started looking at haircuts online to find something different. I ran across this barber from London who made up this cut called the London Fringe which is what inspired my haircut. I like being different so it’s okay if people don’t always get it cause most people are used to everyone being the same. I’ll probably rock it till I’m tired of it and want to try something new. JJ: You grew up in San Francisco’s Bay Area. What’s your ethnic background? What was your childhood like? How does that reflect in your personal style, your music, and your life in general? ME: I’m mixed with Colombian and white, but my family is a rainbow of different races. I went through some things growing up with family members close to me who were struggling with drug addiction and other stuff, but it’s taught me a lot about what I want and don’t want for my life, and helps me make better decisions as I get older. I moved around a lot as a kid too and grew up in seven different cities in the Bay. I’ve lived in the hood, middle class neighborhoods, and a nice neighborhood. I think being able to see different things and perspectives has made me who I am. It gave me an appreciation for different cultures, and gave me understanding for people from all backgrounds. All of this has played a part in my music, my message, and who I am. I definitely want to be a voice for positivity and hope. A lot of kids don’t come from the best backgrounds and they need to know that they can still do anything they dream – like I am. JJ: You recently went to the Teen Choice Awards. Who are some new teen artists you’ve been obsessed with recently? ME: I can’t really think of any teen artist that I’ve been listening to lately, I listen to a lot of just slightly older artists – PnB Rock, Ty Dolla $ign, Calvin Harris, and Amine. JJ: What are some of your favorite restaurants in LA? Where are your favorite hang-out spots in LA? ME: I love BeaBea’s in Burbank…they got the best breakfast. Mama Hong’s in Burbank got the best Pho. SweetGreen got the best salads. Pink Pepper in Hollywood got some bomb Thai, and Portos always smacks on the pastries and Cuban food. I also love Tender Greens, Chick-fil-A, and hella other places. I love food in general. (laughs) As far as hang-out spots, I mostly kick it at friends’ houses, but I love going to Venice Beach. It reminds me of the Bay for some reason. JJ: When can fans expect new music? Any collaborations? Is there an EP or album on the way?​ How soon? ME: I’m dropping a project very soon, but I don’t have an exact date yet. I’m not focused on getting any collabs right now, but we’ll see. They can definitely count on me dropping more music and visuals over the next couple months!.....»»

R. Kelly"s Alleged Sex Cult Victim Suggests That Her Dad May"ve Been The One Who Got Her Involved With The Singer — *GASP*!

Shots fired!! R. Kelly's alleged hostage victim is SO done with her father causing a scene in the press.

As we previously reported, Joycelyn Savage's family has accused the Ignition singer of being the "puppet master" behind an abusive sex cult, and they believe the almost 22-year-old is a victim. Related: Diplo Makes A Gross Joke About R. Kelly's Alleged Sex Cult While both R. Kelly and Miz Savage have denied the slanderous allegations, it seems Joycelyn's father, named Timothy, is determined to continue on the crusade against the hitmaker as he believes the aspiring singer is suffering from Stockholm syndrome. Joycelyn is shocked by her father's accusations as he's the one who allegedly orchestrated her meeting with R. Kelly! According to TMZ, after Joycelyn met the scandalized singer at a concert two years ago, Timothy gave his blessing for his daughter to move in with the now 50-year-old. It's said the initial plan -- which was hatched between the songwriter and Mr. Savage -- was for Joycelyn to move in with Kelly in order to become the A-lister's protégée. Timothy supposedly dropped off Joycelyn at a friend's place so that she could be driven to Kelly's residence. R. Kelly's victim (?) alluded to this fact in a new statement as she warned her dad: "Dad, you know everything that's going on with the media and the internet and what you have done is a complete disaster -- and you need to stop. Because, right now, I am fed up with everything you're doing. You are embarrassing me and the whole entire family. I am happy where I am at and the people I am around. And it's getting out of hand, seriously. Because honestly you know the situation that had happened that night when I went to meet R. Kelly." Nonetheless, it appears as though Timothy is already clapping back at these claims as sources close to him defend that Joycelyn's poppa thought she would only live with Kelly for a handful of months, not years. Oh, and Joycelyn's pals note that Mr. Savage has known his daughter's whereabouts this whole time. Da fuq?? Regardless, Joycelyn still refuses to confirm where she's currently living. So odd. Be sure to ch-ch-check out Joycelyn's latest statement for yourself (below)! [Image via WENN/YouTube.].....»»

R. Kelly Reportedly Manipulates His "Victims" By Getting Them Dependent On His Lavish Lifestyle

R. Kelly may or may not be a sex cult leader, but he sounds manipulative AF. Or, at least, that's the impression we're getting following the latest report on his "cult" drama.

Kelly may or may not be a sex cult leader, but he sounds manipulative AF. Or, at least, that's the impression we're getting following the latest report on his "cult" drama. As we previously reported, the Ignition singer has been accused of being the "puppet master" behind an abusive sex cult where six young women are under his control at his Atlanta and Chicago homes. Yuck. Related: Twitter Reacts To The R. Kelly Sex Cult Allegations While the hitmaker and one of his alleged victims have denied the slanderous accusations, more details have emerged about Kelly's bizarre romantic life. Reportedly, the 50-year-old doesn't actually hold anyone hostage, rather he gets his "victims" addicted to the lavish life so they don't want to leave. *Shudders* This is a claim a family member of one of the hostages is making. According to TMZ, one of the women met R. Kelly backstage during a concert and communicated with the songwriter for six months before being invited to live with him. An invitation the unnamed lady accepted. It's said the supposed victim was 20 years old when she settled into Kelly's residence last year. Despite the hostage rumors, this woman's family says their loved one has been allowed to leave Kelly's Illinois and Georgia homes -- and has done so on MANY occasions. The A-lister even lets the woman fly unaccompanied and out of state in order to visit with the family. Regardless, the woman never stays more than a week and refers to the chart topper as "her man." Per the fam, the victim (?) stays with Kelly as he gifts her with lavish experiences, such as trips to Beverly Hills for shopping sprees, spa days, expensive handbags, lingerie, etc. Apparently, Kelly makes it no secret that he "wants to shower them in luxury." While this family doesn't think their girl is being abused, they have called out the industry vet over his "calculating, methodical process to groom naive girls." Oh, and they confirmed that Kelly takes the ladies' cellphones. In short: Kelly might not be physically harming these girls, but he's using psychological tactics to keep them dependent on him. Gross.

Another Woman Comes Forward Alleging R. Kelly Tried To Lure Her Into His Sex Cult! WTF?!

Well this is creepy… An unidentified woman has come forward to TMZ, claiming that she was nearly whisked into R.

Kelly's increasingly sketchy sex slavery lifestyle but her mom was the one who eventually rescued her from going down that road. Related: More R. Kelly News HERE! It all started back in December, when the girl met R. Kelly back stage at one of his shows; she was 20 years old at the time. She began to exchange calls and texts with him, and the 50-year-old singer reportedly told her he'd help with her modeling and acting career. Eventually, he invited her to his Georgia home with orders: wear something sexy. Immediately, she was whisked into R. Kelly's bedroom and asked to pose like a model, after which Kelly gave her $200 to buy black lingerie, heels, and red lipstick. The girl apparently went through with that, and came back for a second visit, where R. Kelly got more and more aggressive with her, eventually convincing her to pose nude. She claims they never had sex, though. Then, three months later -- back in February -- Kelly sent her a one-way ticket to El Lay, and told her not to bring any friends. Related: Here's How R. Kelly Manipulates His Victims Creeped out, she told her mother -- and mom immediately shut that shit down, forbidding the girl to go! Judging by what we know about R. Kelly and his alleged activities now, this certainly seems like a good decision... Scary!!! Thoughts, Perezcious readers?! Is this shit creepy, or what??.....»»

Kelly Clarkson Says She Lost "Millions" By Refusing a Writing Credit with Dr Luke

Kelly Clarkson is speaking out about Dr Luke again after saying she was blackmailed into working with him last year. This time, Kelly is saying that she lost millions of dollars because of a writing credit she never received on the 2009 song “My Life Would Suck Without You.” “There’s a lot of times in [...] Kelly Clarkson is speaking out about Dr Luke again after saying she was blackmailed into working with him last year. This time, Kelly is saying that she lost millions of dollars because of a writing credit she never received on the 2009 song “My Life Would Suck Without You.” “There’s a lot of times in my career where you don’t see my name on a song,” Kelly told Z100. “Sometimes I don’t write them, but a lot of times I do change the song in a way that probably you should ask for credit, but I don’t because the song was already great. I just made it more me and I think a lot of artists steal credit a lot from writers, which I think is super crappy because that’s their livelihood.” “I did deserve it on that song just because I changed it a bit, but I really just didn’t—especially at that time, I was so frustrated that I was forced to work…basically, they were going to sit on my record unless I did what they wanted and I was so frustrated because I literally said, ‘Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path. I just had a negative experience. The guy is super talented. I’m not negating that. That’s a fact, obviously,” Kelly continued, referencing Dr Luke. “And I asked not to work with Dr. Luke… just because I had not a good experience with him. It was one thing and they wouldn’t even give it to me.” “I don’t want my name near his,” Kelly continued. “I don’t even want—I want to pretend this didn’t happen in my life and I want to forget it. There’s hundreds of thousands of dollars gone because of that…or millions actually. That song was huge,” she said. “I was making a point to the people working with me going, ‘This is how much I didn’t want to do this.’ I don’t care about the money. I don’t care about, ‘Oh, you’re going to be the most famous person ever if you do this.’ That’s not what holds weight in my life.”.....»»

According to a Page Six source, ratings for Megyn Kelly Today's hour are down 32 percent from last year. However, the 46-year-old isn't just screwing over herself; she's screwing over the entire NBC franchise! Related: Megyn Kelly Says Gun Laws Won't Change Following Vegas Shooting The insider revealed: "Not only are ratings plummeting since Megyn Kelly joined the Today franchise, but the numbers show Kelly's lead-in has also affected Kathie Lee [Gifford] and Hoda Kotb's show, which follows straight afterwards... They've taken a huge hit with Megyn as their lead-in." In fact, Kathie Lee & Hoda is down 26 percent! OUCH! "Too many people are tuning out NBC. Hoda and Kathie Lee had been a bright spot in the mornings." Not surprisingly, network execs are "alarmed" about the abysmal viewership, and fellow NBC stars are "concerned." "The format for Megyn's show doesn't make sense. Her show distracts from the Today franchise." But Miz Kelly isn't throwing in the towel just yet! According to an NBC insider: "Megyn posted her highest ratings yet in the 'key demographic' on Monday, and she had her biggest total viewer number since the premiere... Everyone knows that ratings fluctuate at the start of a new show, and there has been nothing but support for Megyn from all of the Today show hosts. They have each taken her out to lunch — Kathie Lee just took her to lunch today." Time is ticking, Megyn! [Image via Macguyver/WENN.].....»»

The pair collaborated on Since U Been Gone and Behind These Hazel Eyes when she was first getting started, during which time she developed a real distaste for the hitmaker -- who she said never tried anything with her like with Kesha, but was very demeaning. Video: Perez Reacts To Kelly's Love So Soft Live! She put it simply to Entertainment Weekly: "There are many people in the world to befriend, and he is not one of them." Ha! But for Kelly, this beef was serious -- serious enough to lose "hundreds of thousands" or even "millions" in royalties when RCA forced her to reunite with Dr. Luke for My Life Would Suck Without You! Speaking to Z100, the Love So Soft singer explained: "Basically, they were gonna sit on my record unless I did what they wanted. I was so frustrated because I literally said, 'Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path.' I love people. I think that's apparent. I think I'm a nice person, that's apparent. It was just this one thing, and I asked not to work with Dr. Luke just because I had not a good experience with him... I generally love everyone. You have to really be a special kind of ... for me not to like you." They may have forced her to work with Gottwald again, but they couldn't force her to put her name next to his. She said: "They brought up writing credit at the end. They were like, 'Well, you changed the song.' And I was like, 'I don't want my name near his. I want to pretend this didn't happen in my life and I want to forget it.'" So she gave up all those royalties just to disassociate herself from this man. Video: Kelly Reveals She Got Her Tubes Tied! Can you imagine hating someone so much?? She defended her decision: "I was making a point to the people working with me, going, 'This is how much I didn't want to do this.' I don't care about the money. I don't care about, 'Oh, you're going to be the most famous person ever if you do this.' That's not what holds weight in my life." Damn. That took some guts!

According to the Associated Press, the DJ had his "back turned to Swift, who sat at a nearby table with her mother, Andrea Swift, and their attorney." Awk-warrrrrrrrd. A total of eight jurors will be selected from a pool of 60, and each were asked 35 questions, focusing on whether they are fans of Swift and whether they saw the photo of Mueller and the now-27-year-old.
