Kelly‘s daughter Joann, who goes by the name Buku Abi, is speaking out against her father. Buku, 20, wrote a lengthy message on her Instagram Story on Thursday (January 10) after the documentary Surviving R. Kelly aired this week. “I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently. I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless. That is my last intention,” she wrote. “I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father’s actions.

Let alone gather all the right words to express everything I feel.” Buku added that “it has been years since my siblings and I have seen or have spoken to him.” She is one of three children R. Kelly had with his ex-wife Andrea Kelly. “My mother, siblings and I would never condone, support or be apart of anything negative he has done or continues to do in his life,” she added. “Going through all I have gone through in my life, I would never want anyone to feel the pain I have felt.” Read the whole statement below and also see what Lady Gaga said about the allegations against the singer.

R. Kelly Addresses Sex Cult Allegations, Illiteracy Claims, Being "Touched" As A Kid, & SO MUCH MORE In 19-Minute Song I Admit

R. Kelly has kept relatively silent since allegations of him leading a "sex cult" broke in February 2017. Now, he's finally confessing a number of his "sins" — and it only took 19 minutes!

Kelly has kept relatively silent since allegations of him leading a "sex cult" broke in February 2017. Now, he's finally confessing a number of his "sins" -- and it only took 19 minutes! On Monday, the disgraced R&B star dropped a nearly 20-minute single called I Admit, in which he addressed the slew of claims that have been made against him over the course of his career. Related: R. Kelly's Ex-Wife Attempted Suicide During Their Marriage Early on in the song, the 51-year-old admits that he has trouble reading -- "I can't spell for shit I admit that all I hear is hits (ohh)" -- and how he couldn't read the words on the teleprompter at the Grammys one year. But he later discusses the more serious allegations. After fully admitting to having multiple girlfriends, Kelly gets real abstract on the concepts of "cults" and "sex slaves," singing: "What's the definition of a cult? / What's the definition of a sex slave? / Go to the dictionary, look it up / Let me know I'll be here waiting… Say I'm abusing these women. What the fuck? That's some absurd shit. They brainwashed, really? Kidnapped, really? Can't eat, really? Real talk that shit sounds silly." Hmm, guess he can't read the definition of a cult either?? Further in the song, Kelly directly calls out Jim Derogatis (or, "whatever you name is"), the Buzzfeed journalist who published the first exposé on the alleged cult: "To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is (whatever your name is) / You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years (25 whole years, yeah) / Writin' the same stories over and over against (stories, stories, yeah) / Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career (a whole career) / But guess what? I pray for you and family, and all my other enemies (prayed for you, enemies)." As we said, the song goes on and on. I Admit also addresses of the singer's affinity for the ladies -- "that's both older and young ladies (ladies, yeah)" -- being muted by Spotify, "touched" by a family member when he was younger, and so much more. Based on the Twitter response, few have gotten through the entire 19-minute ordeal, as most can't get past the incriminating title of the song. Take a look at some reactions and, if you dare, listen to the full song (below). I saw R. Kelly trending and figured he finally got arrested and I can't believe I'm still that naive — Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) July 23, 2018 I just read the lyrics to R Kelly’s new 19 minute song called "I Admit It I Did It." His lack of self awareness is atrocious. There are several lyrics I take offense to. The one I will address is "I’m just a man." I am also a man. I would never use that to defend this behavior. — Talib Kweli Greene (@TalibKweli) July 23, 2018 Not to dismiss the number of issues as it relates to R Kelly, BUT WHO WOULD LISTEN TO A 19-MINUTE SONG? — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) July 23, 2018 r. kelly should say sacha baron cohen tricked him into making that song and then go check into the nearest jail. — Open Mike Eagle (@Mike_Eagle) July 23, 2018 HOW ARE Y'ALL STILL NOT DONE WITH R. KELLY?!?! — Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) July 23, 2018 R.Kelly: I thought the song was going to work, Bruh. OJ Simpson: You should of written a book. — Chris Redd (@Reddsaidit) July 23, 2018 R. Kelly: I’m not thinkin bout my haters Also R Kelly: ok but look here Jim Dekotgstis or whatever your name is — Jamie Will Punch You. (@thewayoftheid) July 23, 2018 I know it's wrong to laugh but I'm dying at R. Kelly saying "I admit a family member touched me" and then added "touched me, touched me, touched me" as ad-libs after. The ad-libs really diminished the seriousness of the line. — Sermon (@SermonsDomain) July 23, 2018 R. Kelly: I admit I love God Also R. Kelly less than 5 mins later: I have sex with young women.

Kelly is featured on Lady Gaga‘s 2013 Artpop single “Do What U Want,” which was controversial even at the time. Thanks to Surviving R. Kelly, the docuseries about Kelly’s alleged abuse, accusations of sexual misconduct against Kelly that date back to the ’90s have resurfaced. A music video for the song, which was never released and allegedly featured NSFW content, was directed by Terry Richardson, who also has a slew of sexual misconduct accusations against him. Fans specifically want Lady Gaga to denounce Kelly’s actions. The star has thus far stayed silent about the accusations. Here are some of the fan reactions: @ladygaga I love you but it’s beyond time to call out @rkelly for the criminal he is ! — Stacy Butler (@22stacyb) January 9, 2019 @ladygaga Soooooo how do YOU feel about @rkelly?

I have a feeling it was probably haunting me on the Internet.” Melissa McCarthy Recalls Being Fat-Shamed and Being Labelled ‘Grotesque’ by a Reporter Melissa McCarthy has called out Hollywood’s double standards as she recalls being called ‘grotesque’ and people referring to her ‘tremendous size’ at press conferences. The Bridesmaids star recalled being asked: “Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?” She added: “I just remember all the blood drained out of me. I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ He was looking around like, ‘She’s crazy.'” It’s not the only time the Oscar nominee has suffered such sickening comments as she also remembers being asked why she “feels the need to be so grotesque.” “I was like, ‘OK, so have you ever asked this of a guy? I’m playing a character. You need to get out more if you don’t think there are real women like that,'” she explained to People. “He goes, ‘Oh, fine, I’m aggressive, call it whatever you want.

I specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji and Moet where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera. I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens.

R. Kelly’s Daughter Calls Him a ‘Monster’ on Social Media — Morning Brief

Abi (whose real name is Joann Kelly) posted a heartbreaking post on her Instagram story […] More The post R. Kelly’s Daughter Calls Him a ‘Monster’ on Social Media — Morning Brief appeared first on Socialite Life. Buku Abi is finally speaking out about the shocking allegations against her father, R. Kelly. Abi (whose real name is Joann Kelly) posted a heartbreaking post on her Instagram story that explained how she has been affected by her father’s alleged crimes and insinuating the public doesn’t know the half of what he’s guilty of. The text of her message is transcribed below via screenshots posted on TMZ (pdf). Buku here. I just want to say a few things… Before I start, I just want it to be known that I am speaking from the heart. Nothing I say or do not say is to hurt any party reading or affected by this. To the people that feel I should be speaking up/against everything that is going on right now, I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently. I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless. That is my last intention. I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father’s actions. Trust, I have been deeply affected by all of this. However, It has been very difficult to process it all. Let alone gather all the right words to express everything I feel. Anyone that knows me personally or has been following me throughout the years knows that I do not have a relationship with my father. Nor do I speak on him or on his behalf. I also am not fond of dealing with my personal issues or personal life through social media but, I feel things are starting to get out of hand. Unfortunately, for my own personal reasonings & for all my family has endured in regards to him, his life decisions and his last name, it has been years since my siblings and I have seen or have spoken to him. In regards to my mother [Andrea Lee], she for the same reasonings and more, has not seen or spoken to my father in years. My mother, siblings and I would never condone, support or be a part of ANYTHING negative he has done and or continues to do in his life. Going through all I have gone through in my life, I would never want anyone to feel the pain I have felt. Reminders of how terrible my father is, and how we should be speaking up against him, rude comments about my family, fabricating me, my siblings & our mothers ‘part’ etc. Does not help my family (Me, my sister, my brother, and my mother) in our healing process. Nor does it allow a safe space for other victims who are scared to speak up, speak up. The same monster you all confronting me about is my father,” Buku said in the message. “I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house. My choice to not speak on him and what he does is for my peace of mind. My emotional state. And for MY healing. I have to do & move in a manner that is best for me. I pray anyone who reads this understands I put nothing but good intent behind each word. It took me nearly 3 days to write this. I just want everyone to know that I do care and I love you all. This is a very difficult subject to speak on… again, I apologize if my words don’t come out right. To everyone who reached out to my family and I, sending good energy and love…Thank you. You guys really helped push us through this hard time. This past year for my family has been very difficult, all the love and support you all continue to show is why we keep going. You all fuel us. Family, friends, followers, fans, etc… I love you guys to pieces. Your love is appreciated & always will be reciprocated. For anyone new to my page, I just ask when you come here you bring peace & nothing else.

Gambling and Some Interesting Celebrity Breaks

Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow. Many people have had great fortune through gambling and have become celebrities from rags. However, there have been many other stories which have made rags out of celebrities, too. It’s interesting to know how addicted our role models could be to gamble that they end up earning for gambling, sacrifice, family/relationships for gambling and what-not. So, let’s not waste time and talk about some interesting celebrity stories, which you might not have known. 1. Tiger Woods Well who does not like Tiger Woods and when did Tiger need introductions anyway? But the habit of gambling by Tiger might be unexplored. As per our sources, Tiger was introduced to gambling by Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Gambling became an addiction soon when he started hanging out with Michael and Charles a little too much. It is rumored that Tiger has a whopping $1 million limit in most reputable casinos in Vegas. Well, now you know where Tiger’s whopping brand endorsements and high golf contract prices are ending up. Also, Tiger does not believe in playing for smaller amounts and usually takes part in high stakes games of at least $25,000. Tiger highly appreciated his kind of table set up in casinos. The Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas is his favorite gambling destination. He has always loved a table for himself that was surrounded by party girls. Gambling and tables surrounded by party girls were one of the prime reasons that cost Tiger a divorce from his wife. Considering the expense of divorce which cost about $750 million and a relationship, gambling was a costly choice made by the famous golfer. 2. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps is one of the greatest swimmers the world has ever known. He is a famous Olympian who has won 28 Olympic medals for his country and has brought so much glory to his country and himself. This is the highest number of Olympic medals any individual has won, which is what has brought the swimmer a peaceful retirement life in his early thirties. He is retired now and is just 32 years of age but has achieved remarkable heights which certainly will define him for a lifetime. But, one lesser known fact or habit of Michael was gambling. He had a habit of not accepting defeat and a ‘try until you win’ attitude, which earned him a lot of success at Olympics. However, this isn’t the case with gambling. If you lose, you continue to lose heavily, and it is all about luck and fortune as the results are not directly proportional to the attempts or efforts. It took loads of time for Michael to understand this and sources say that he was into gambling so much that it sometimes happened for eight straight hours. This problem persisted with Michael during 2012. He was also caught for drinking and driving near a casino in Maryland, where he was probably stressed after a straight eight hours of continuous gambling. His life had become very stressed as he wasn’t used to losing and was desperate to win no matter what it had cost. This kept pushing him to despair. Somehow with the help of his friends and close ones, he came out of the gambling habit and now is leaving a peaceful and comfortable life. 3. Tobey Maguire Tobey the on-screen Spider-Man is as cool and smart in the real life as he is in his movies. He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture... Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow.

He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture wasn’t so beneficial as the super hit 2013 movie ‘Runner, Runner’ and is rumored to have been to a rehab center to come outside or quit the habit of gambling. His interest towards gambling is natural as he won the CA State Poker Championship in 2004. He is also fond of the game blackjack. We are not sure of the financials, but Ben was exposed to quite some mental pressure due to gambling. 6. Ray Romano Ray is an actor, stand-up comedian, and is known for the popular TV show, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ He has also received an Emmy award for his role in the hit TV show. He has given his voice for Manny in the ‘Ice Age’ movies. The 60-year-old actor was one of the first actors who began receiving huge paychecks for TV shows. In 2009, he went on to produce a show called ‘Men of a Certain Age.’ The show had a character named ‘Joe’ who was a gambling addict and he tried his best to stay away from it as much as possible. It was a surprise to note that the character of Joe was based on Ray himself, which was something the actor later admitted. Ray still participates in several poker events, but he now knows about his limited skill sets and hopefully is only doing so for fun or as a leisure activity. He isn’t going to casinos now and prefers online poker and similar gambling in smaller amounts. As revealed in the TV series based on Ray himself, he used to seek help from different people anonymously when the gambling debt took over his financial peace. 7. Joe Francis Joe Francis the ever so controversial film producer named for many controversies and publicities. The businessman had been accused by several actresses for casting couch and inappropriate behavior. He is best known for the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ series. Wynn Hotels and others have filed a legal suit against him for unpaid gambling debts. Allegedly or surprisingly, the debt of over $2 million Wynn was given a discount of about 30 percent. 8. John McCain John is a sort of political celebrity in the United States as a senior senator in the state of Arizona. At over 80 years of age, John was a Republican candidate in the 2008 elections against Barack Obama. However, from sources and close friends, it was learned that John had at a time in his life been very addicted to gambling. A stretch of eight hours of gambling and ten hours of poker all are in shame where John had stretched for over 14-16 hours on the table. The extent to which he was attached to gambling was worrying and it certainly affected his choices during his senior senator regime. 9. Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen has given us many entrepreneurs or trading goals by his role in the very famous movie ‘Wall Street.’ With a bucket of hit films and tremendous fan following, Charlie is one of the most controversial actors that the industry has ever known. He has recently surfaced for non-payment of taxes. He owes over $5 million in taxes which is a huge problem, especially for such a celebrity. He is also known for various other controversies that include drugs, alcohol, women, etc. Now coming to his gambling updates, he is known to be a huge gambling addict as revealed by his former spouse during his divorce case. Charlie was in contact with a bookie even while transporting his wife to the hospital while she was pregnant before the birth of his daughter. Clearly, gambling had gained the highest priority in his life over the welcoming of his own daughter and this certainly weakened his personal family ties. Also, the report exposed that Charlie in his peak lost over $200,000 every week — all thanks to gambling. This surfaced in 2006 and about eight years later, Charlie told his fans and the media that he has overcome gambling and doesn’t do it anymore. But controversies still follow him with tax evasion and non-payment and we hope he loses all of his bad habits soon. 10. Charles Barkley Another basketball player who has lost huge in gambling is Charles Barkley. After retirement, Charlies is working as an analyst in the NBA tournament. The 55-year-old also had been struggling due to gambling. Charles confessed to having lost about $30 million because of his gambling addiction. He also took counseling and then a break for two years from gambling but is a very difficult addiction, he is back to gambling now. Now he admits to gambling in casinos but in a much more controlled, monitored, and restricted manner. You never know, you might have new news story surfacing about a new gambling debt from Charles, as gambling is a galloping enterprise and you are always playing with trouble. Let’s Learn from Celebrities and Let’s Go Gambling Big celebrities have been in huge gambling troubles and it is certainly worthy to learn from their experiences and be as distant as possible from gambling activities. We have seen many stories and there are very few people who have made a fortune from gambling. Most importantly, we must make sure it never becomes a habit and addiction. Addiction to any activity can be very harmful and these celebrities have already experienced these issues. If people at such heights are not spared by a gambling addiction, it is very difficult for us to remain sheltered. So, to end the celebrity gambling league, gambling occasionally isn’t bad, but making it a source of income, or a habit or addiction should be avoided. [Photo Credit: Pixabay].....»»

R. Kelly Denies Ruining A Deputy Sheriff"s Marriage — & Hits Back Against Lawsuit With Claims The Complainant Fathered A Love Child!

2017 has NOT been R. Kelly's year. In addition to the troubling claims that the Ignition singer is the leader of a sex cult, the hitmaker has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly ruining a deputy sheriff's marriage. Drama, drama, dramaaaaa! Related: Garrison Keillor Fired Over Alleged "Inappropriate Behavior"! In case you missed it, earlier this year, [...] 2017 has NOT been R. Kelly's year. In addition to the troubling claims that the Ignition singer is the leader of a sex cult, the hitmaker has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly ruining a deputy sheriff's marriage. Drama, drama, dramaaaaa! Related: Garrison Keillor Fired Over Alleged "Inappropriate Behavior"! In case you missed it, earlier this year, Mississippi law enforcer Kenny Bryant sued the chart topper for having an extra-marital relationship with his wife AND accused Kelly of ruining his life. Apparently, Bryant's wife Asia Childress had a relationship with Kelly PRIOR to marrying Kenny. However, per the policeman, Asia's romance with the A-lister was long over by their July 2012 nuptials. Or, so he thought... Reportedly, things were good between Bryant and Childress, that is, until Kelly weaseled his way back into Asia's life. The controversial celeb and Mrs. Bryant rekindled their intimate relations in October 2012 -- when Childress attended Kelly's concert. According to the suit obtained by The Blast, Kenny's wife had an affair with Kelly for FIVE years. To make matters worse, the singer supposedly gave Asia Chlamydia during their affair. At some point during their marriage, Bryant claims Asia convinced him to move to Georgia, in an attempt to be closer to Kelly. Although Bryant agreed to the move, he was unable to find a job and was left financially broke from the situation. Childress eventually asked him for a divorce. Unsurprisingly, Kenny is suing R. Kelly for destroying his marriage and for depriving him of "a spouse, love, support, and conjugal affection." He claims he suffered from emotional, psychological, and financial loss. Man, oh man. Related: Tyga Calls Out Scott Disick's Allegedly Cheating Ways! In response to these damning accusations, Kelly has admitted to knowing Childress, but says he never slept with her. Kelly's legal team is trying to have the entire case thrown out, especially since Bryant is an alleged hypocrite. Through some independent investigating, Kelly's team has discovered that Bryant had multiple adulterous relationships over the course of his marriage. The music maker even defended that he has evidence suggesting the deputy sheriff fathered a child outside of his marriage and regularly came on to his coworkers. The superstar's legal team hit back with allegations that Bryant used his resources as a law enforcement officer to further his own agenda. Oh, and Kenny is said to have misused the legal system in order to attempt extortion against Kelly. The Kelly camp is currently seeking Bryant's phone records to prove their defense. They've also accused Bryant of harassing the disgraced star. Such madness! Be sure to ch-ch-check back for updates as this case is still pending. [Image via WENN.].....»»

R. Kelly Accused Of More Underaged Inappropriateness

Who didn’t R. Kelly have sex with? This man has probably nailed everything not nailed down. No matter how old it was. Would you believe it? Allegedly, there’s even more untold tales of R. Kelly and the underaged. Everyone from his brothers to his backup singers are pointing the finger at him. Claiming that Kelly […] The post R. Kelly Accused Of More Underaged Inappropriateness appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Who didn’t R. Kelly have sex with? This man has probably nailed everything not nailed down. No matter how old it was. Would you believe it? Allegedly, there’s even more untold tales of R. Kelly and the underaged. Everyone from his brothers to his backup singers are pointing the finger at him. Claiming that Kelly even banged a then 15-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah on a tour bus while everyone watched. Sex with a 15-year-old is considered pretty heinous for everyone that hasn’t deleted the moral compass app on their iPhone. But sleeping with a 15-year-old and writing her hit song “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number” is a serial pisser taunting the police. R. Kelly has faced a series of allegations of sexual misconduct with underage girls, and now a former backup singer has a new one — that the then-27-year-old singer had sex with a 15-year-old Aaliyah while on a tour bus filled with entourage members. The claim was made in a Lifetime docuseries called Surviving R. Kelly, which delves into the decades of claims made against the R&B singer. In the premiere episode this week, backup singer Jovante Cunningham claimed that she witnessed the singer having a number of sexual encounters with underage girls, People magazine reported. Cunningham descried how R. Kelly took Aaliyah under his wing when she was 12 years old, including writing her breakout hit “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number.” But the relationship turned physical after a few years, the former backup singer claimed. She noted that there was not much privacy on the tour bus, and one day a group of people was hanging out when a door flew open and they could see R. Kelly having sex with the underage singer. Cunningham said the memory was traumatic to her. “Things that an adult should not be doing with a child,” she said, adding, “I can’t stress to you how people are still suffering behind things that went on 20 years ago.” I believe R. Kelly only got away because GoPro wasn’t around yet. Had he played the same game of watersports with the very, very young lady while recording in 4K he’d probably be playing cards with Cosby right now. Maybe he’s a monster, maybe it’s all just one big misunderstanding. I don’t think the most recent women claiming he’s running a sex cult helps his case at all, but he’s innocent until he runs out of hush money. Photo Credit: Getty Images  The post R.

Woman – R. Kelly, R You Going To Pay For My Valtrex?

While the #MeThree! movement was so effective that it even took down men who didn't do anything wrong, R. Kelly has somehow inexplicably been able to skirt a full court press hashtag backlash for allegedly perpetually banging teenagers for decades and even brainwashing them into his one-man sex cult. Because a four-foot tall Aziz Ansari being an overly sloppy date is the real threat to society. The most recent woman to accuse a rapper, of all people, of sexual misconduct is some chick named Faith Rodgers, who did the dirty with Kelly last year. Rodgers must not be much of a reader, because somehow she didn't catch wind that R. Kelly pees on toddlers or whatthefuckever and decided to give romance a whirl. The post Woman – R.

A post shared by R Kelly (@rkelly) on May 11, 2018 at 8:51am PDT   While the #MeThree! movement was so effective that it even took down men who didn’t do anything wrong, R. Kelly has somehow inexplicably been able to skirt a full court press hashtag backlash for allegedly perpetually banging teenagers for decades and even brainwashing them into his one-man sex cult.

The most recent woman to accuse a rapper, of all people, of sexual misconduct is some chick named Faith Rodgers, who did the dirty with Kelly last year. Rodgers must not be much of a reader, because somehow she didn’t catch wind that R. Kelly pees on toddlers or whatthefuckever and decided to give romance a whirl. She was legal at nineteen-years-old, so the allegations aren’t so much about his XXX after school program as much as the fact that he knowingly gave her herpes during unwanted sexual encounters. Rodgers allowed Kelly into her hotel room for a booty call at 6 am – but in no way thought the encounter would be of a sexual nature – leading her to be shocked when he started putting on those classic R. Kelly moves: Sex is not something I just do with somebody I’m engaging with for my first time. And he shrugged his shoulders and then he responds, ‘Well, I’m at my best when I’m wanted.’ According to Buzzfeed, Kelly called himself “Daddy” and Faith “little doll” and said: I want to teach you and show you how to be a woman. Right before giving her herpes. Which is also something Rodgers is suing Kelly for, because apparently he didn’t disclose that herpes was indeed a part of his STD portfolio. Rodgers added: I think the hardest part was coming clean to my family about everything. And you kind of feel bad, you beat yourself up about it. I blame myself a lot. Victim shaming is definitely not something I’m about to partake in because this is 2018 and people seriously need to wake up. However, I can’t help but feel that Rodgers doesn’t quite understand the job description of a whore.

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!

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?

The award was presented by Kelly Rowland and Clarkson had a lot of praise for her fellow Kelly! Before Kelly started her acceptance speech, she said, “My goal in life in 2018 is to dress and look as cool as [Kelly R.] does right now. I was backstage going, ‘Aw, I’m like the other Kelly. I was like, we can come out with a movie, From Kelly to Kelly. It can be just as good as the first one.’” Kelly thanked Pink, who is a past Billboard honoree. “I’m a huge fan of hers,” she said. “I just want to talk about the women who really inspired me to be a singer and to be motivated. And be progressive with [my] sound, and Pink is one of those people. I was so excited to perform with her because I was such a huge fan of hers since the ’90s.” “It was more or less a positive situation of women coming together and not getting pitted against each other,” she said about performing with Pink at the American Music Awards almost two weeks ago. “I’m so tired. I’m so tired as a mother by watching it. Just accept the fact that there is room for everyone.” “That’s my real goal… to remind everyone that there’s room for everyone. We’ve got to start respecting each other first and not with the beef… There are so many women before us that work so hard for us to have these opportunities and these blessings bestowed upon us,” she added......»»

Buku, 20, wrote a lengthy message on her Instagram Story on Thursday (January 10) after the documentary Surviving R. Kelly aired this week. “I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently. I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless. That is my last intention,” she wrote. “I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father’s actions. Trust, I am deeply affected by all of this. However, it had been very difficult to process it all. Let alone gather all the right words to express everything I feel.” Buku added that “it has been years since my siblings and I have seen or have spoken to him.” She is one of three children R. Kelly had with his ex-wife Andrea Kelly. “My mother, siblings and I would never condone, support or be apart of anything negative he has done or continues to do in his life,” she added. “Going through all I have gone through in my life, I would never want anyone to feel the pain I have felt.” Read the whole statement below and also see what Lady Gaga said about the allegations against the singer.

RHOC"s Kelly Dodd Announces Divorce From Husband Of 11 Years: "We Are Both Miserable"

Kelly and Michael Dodd are getting divorced. The Real Housewives Of Orange County star confirmed that she and her husband of 11 years are splitting up in a VVV candid interview with Daily Mail.

The Real Housewives Of Orange County star confirmed that she and her husband of 11 years are splitting up in a VVV candid interview with Daily Mail. As Kelly isn't one to hold back, we KNOW this is going to be good. Related: Teresa Giudice Has THIS To Stay About Her Marriage To Joe! Miz Dodd clearly isn't beating around the bush when discussing the dissolution of her marriage as she frankly told the news site: "Our marriage is over, I'm out of there! We've had problems for years and I've had enough. I'm done with our marriage. It's just a case where two people can't get along. It's best if we went our separate ways and concentrate on our daughter." Man, oh man. This isn't the first time Kelly and Michael have had relationship problems as they Bravolebrity filed for divorce back in 2012 (and then later rekindled her romance with Mr. Dodd). The twosome share an 11-year-old daughter, named Jolie. Hey, at least they're not keeping their child in a clearly toxic environment! Kelly continued: "We aren't good together. Maybe we'll be better to each other when we are divorced and are friends. But right now we are both miserable and it's not good for either one of us, let alone our daughter. Over the past several years we've had our ups and downs, and lately it's been mostly downs." Oof. This announcement comes only days after reports claimed that the police visited the Dodd residence in Newport Beach, CA SIX times in July. Dodd is so hungry for an official split that she's even asked the judge for a bifurcated divorce. This means Kelly and Michael could be officially divorced before any settlement issues are actually finalized. She concluded: "I filed for divorce against Michael in 2012 and we never had any resolution. The case was just sitting there. So I'm going to ask my attorney to file a motion so I can get a bifurcated divorce. I want out of my marriage as soon as possible. We can figure out the financials of our divorce down the road." Savage. We hope these two can keep things cordial for their daughter's sake. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Moses Farrow Shares HIS Side Of Woody Allen Accusation, Claims Mother Mia Farrow Was The Real Child Abuser — And Dylan Responds!

Wow. This is quite a different story.

Moses Farrow, son of Woody and Mia Farrow, has only briefly spoken out about this in the [...] Wow. This is quite a different story. Woody Allen doesn't have many defenders these days, but one voice speaking out may carry a lot of weight -- someone who was there the day of the crime for which he's accused. Moses Farrow, son of Woody and Mia Farrow, has only briefly spoken out about this in the past, but now he's written his own account online, one he says he hopes will dispel the "inaccurate and misleading attacks" on his father. Photos: Stars Who Have Spoken Out Against — Or Defended — Working With Woody Allen! He writes: "I was present for everything that transpired in our house before, during, and after the alleged event. Now that the public hysteria of earlier this year has died down a little and I have some hope that the truth can get a fair hearing, I want to share my story." Moses, who was 14 at the time, says Mia had warned him and his two younger siblings, Dylan and Satchel (whom you know these days as Ronan Farrow), not to let Woody out of their sight during that afternoon visit: "She was understandably furious: seven months earlier she had learned that he was in an intimate relationship with my 21-year-old sister Soon-Yi, after discovering Polaroids of her in Woody's apartment. For months now, she had been drilling it into our heads like a mantra: Woody was "evil," "a monster," "the devil," and Soon-Yi was "dead to us." This was the constant refrain, whether or not Woody was around. (So often did she repeat it that Satchel would announce to one of our nannies, "My sister is fucking my father." He had just turned four.) My mother was our only source of information about Woody – and she was extremely convincing." Moses says Mia actually said Woody was an "excellent father" until she found out about Soon-Yi, at which point "everything changed." But he claims it was actually Mia's suggestion that Woody get to know her adult adopted daughter (not his relation in any legal or blood way, clarifies Moses) that brought them together: "Woody and Soon-Yi rarely even spoke during her childhood. It was my mother who first suggested, when Soon-Yi was 20, that Woody reach out and spend time with her. He agreed and started taking her to Knicks games. That's how their romance started. Yes, it was unorthodox, uncomfortable, disruptive to our family and it hurt my mother terribly. But the relationship itself was not nearly as devastating to our family as my mother's insistence on making this betrayal the center of all our lives from then on." But Moses goes on to claim there were issues before that relationship began. He points not to Woody but to Mia as the alleged source of abuse! Related: Javier Bardem Was 'Very Shocked By This Sudden Treatment' Of Woody Allen In a brief history of the dysfunction in his family, he expounds: "There were numerous alcohol-fueled arguments between her parents, and Mia told me that she was the victim of attempted molestation within her own family. Her brother, my uncle John, who visited us many times when we were young, is currently in prison on a conviction of multiple child molestation charges. (My mother has never publicly commented on this or expressed concern about his victims.) My uncle Patrick and his family would often come by, but those visits could end abruptly as Mia and Patrick would often wind up arguing. Patrick would commit suicide in 2009." He also touches on Mia's unspoken earlier years: "My mother, of course, had her own darkness. She married 50-year-old Frank Sinatra when she was only 21. After they divorced, she moved in to live with her close friend Dory Previn and her husband André. When my mother became pregnant by André, the Previns' marriage broke up, leading to Dory's institutionalization. It was never spoken of in our home, of course, and not even known to me until a few years ago. But, as I look at it – as a licensed therapist as well as an eyewitness – it's easy to see the seeds of dysfunction that would flourish within our own home." All that serves as background to set up Moses' accusations of straight up child abuse against Mia! He writes: "I'm sure my mother had good intentions in adopting children with disabilities from the direst of circumstances, but the reality inside our walls was very different. It pains me to recall instances in which I witnessed siblings, some blind or physically disabled, dragged down a flight of stairs to be thrown into a bedroom or a closet, then having the door locked from the outside. She even shut my brother Thaddeus, paraplegic from polio, in an outdoor shed overnight as punishment for a minor transgression." He says he wasn't spared either: "Once, when I was given a new pair of jeans, I thought they would look cool if I cut off a couple of the belt loops. When Mia saw what I had done, she spanked me repeatedly and had me remove all my clothing, saying, "You're not deserving of any clothes" and making me stand naked in the corner of her room, in front of my older siblings who had just returned from dinner with their father André." Moses says Soon-Yi got it most often: "When Soon-Yi was young, Mia once threw a large porcelain centerpiece at her head. Luckily it missed, but the shattered pieces hit her legs. Years later, Mia beat her with a telephone receiver." Moses' most shocking accusation comes next -- that Mia was the cause of his sister's Tam's suicide: "Most media sources claim my sister Tam died of "heart failure" at the age of 21. In fact, Tam struggled with depression for much of her life, a situation exacerbated by my mother refusing to get her help, insisting that Tam was just "moody." One afternoon in 2000, after one final fight with Mia, which ended with my mother leaving the house, Tam committed suicide by overdosing on pills. My mother would tell others that the drug overdose was accidental, saying that Tam, who was blind, didn't know which pills she was taking. But Tam had both an ironclad memory and sense of spatial recognition. And, of course, blindness didn't impair her ability to count." He says his brother Thaddeus witnessed the fight firsthand and told him about it -- before he also committed suicide two years ago. This is all horrifying behavior if true. Related: Woman Claims R. Kelly Sexually Assaulted Her & Gave Her Herpes In New Lawsuit But the abuse Moses says he went through leads directly to his version of the accusations against Woody: "Fighting back was not a viable option. One summer day, Mia accused me of leaving the curtains closed in the TV room. They had been drawn the day before when Dylan and Satchel were watching a movie. She insisted that I had closed them and left them that way. Her friend Casey had come over to visit and while they were in the kitchen, my mother insisted I had shut the curtains. At that point, I couldn't take it anymore and I lost it, yelling, "You're lying!" She shot me a look and took me into the bathroom next to the TV room. She hit me uncontrollably all over my body. She slapped me, pushed me backwards and hit me on my chest, shouting, "How dare you say I'm a liar in front of my friend. You're the pathological liar." I was defeated, deflated, beaten and beaten down. Mia had stripped me of my voice and my sense of self. It was clear that if I stepped even slightly outside her carefully crafted reality, she would not tolerate it. It was an upbringing that made me, paradoxically, both fiercely loyal and obedient to her, as well as deeply afraid." Moses goes on to give his account of the afternoon -- and claims what Dylan now says couldn't possibly have happened: "As the "man of the house" that day, I had promised to keep an eye out for any trouble, and I was doing just that. I remember where Woody sat in the TV room, and I can picture where Dylan and Satchel were. Not that everybody stayed glued to the same spot, but I deliberately made sure to note everyone's coming and going. I do remember that Woody would leave the room on occasion, but never with Dylan. He would wander into another room to make a phone call, read the paper, use the bathroom, or step outside to get some air and walk around the large pond on the property. Along with five kids, there were three adults in the house, all of whom had been told for months what a monster Woody was. None of us would have allowed Dylan to step away with Woody, even if he tried. Casey's nanny, Alison, would later claim that she walked into the TV room and saw Woody kneeling on the floor with his head in Dylan's lap on the couch. Really? With all of us in there? And if she had witnessed that, why wouldn't she have said something immediately to our nanny Kristi? (I also remember some discussion of this act perhaps taking place on the staircase that led to Mia's room. Again, this would have been in full view of anyone who entered the living room, assuming Woody managed to walk off with Dylan in the first place.) The narrative had to be changed since the only place for anyone to commit an act of depravity in private would have been in a small crawl space off my mother's upstairs bedroom. By default, the attic became the scene of the alleged assault. In her widely-circulated 2014 open letter in The New York Times, the adult Dylan suddenly seemed to remember every moment of the alleged assault, writing, "He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother's electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we'd go to Paris and I'd be a star in his movies. I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains." It's a precise and compelling narrative, but there's a major problem: there was no electric train set in that attic. There was, in fact, no way for kids to play up there, even if we had wanted to. It was an unfinished crawl space, under a steeply-angled gabled roof, with exposed nails and floorboards, billows of fiberglass insulation, filled with mousetraps and droppings and stinking of mothballs, and crammed with trunks full of hand-me-down clothes and my mother's old wardrobes. The idea that the space could possibly have accommodated a functioning electric train set, circling around the attic, is ridiculous. One of my brothers did have an elaborate model train set, but it was set up in the boys' room, a converted garage on the first floor. (Maybe that was the train set my sister thinks she remembers?) Now, whenever I hear Dylan making a public statement about what allegedly happened to her that day when she was barely seven, I can only think of that imaginary train set, which she never brought up during the original investigation or custody hearing. Did somebody suggest to the adult Dylan that such a specific detail would make her story more credible? Or does she really believe she remembers this train "circling around the attic" the same way she says she remembers Woody's whispered promises of trips to Paris and movie stardom (kind of odd enticements to offer a 7-year-old, rather than a new toy or a doll)? And all this apparently took place while those of us who promised to have our eyes trained on Woody were downstairs, seemingly oblivious to what was happening right above our heads? Eventually, my mother returned with Casey and her newest adoptees, Tam and baby Isaiah. There were no complaints by the nannies, and nothing odd about Dylan's behavior. In fact, Woody and Mia went out to dinner that night. After dinner, they returned to Frog Hollow and Woody stayed over in a downstairs bedroom – with, apparently, no abnormal behavior by Dylan, and no negative reports from any of the grown-ups." Moses' own theory based on what he witnessed is that Mia coached young Dylan until she didn't know what was true anymore -- a truly disturbing claim. He also responds to the public perception that Woody has "gotten a pass" all these years, pointing out there was indeed a lengthy investigation -- one which cleared his father and fit his memory of his mother: "At the time, of course, I knew nothing about the six-month criminal investigation conducted by the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale/New Haven Hospital, ordered by the Connecticut state police. But since this allegation was renewed a few years ago, I've seen the results of that investigation. It specifically concluded that "Dylan was not abused by Mr. Allen," that her statements had a "rehearsed quality" and that they were "likely coached or influenced by her mother." Those conclusions perfectly match my own childhood experience: coaching, influencing, and rehearsing are three words that sum up exactly how my mother tried to raise us. I know that Dylan has recently referred to this brainwashing theory as "spin" by our father – but it was nothing of the sort. It was not only the conclusion reached by a state-ordered investigation, it was the reality of life in our household." You can read Moses' full account HERE. People reached out to Dylan for her response to her brother's side. In a statement, she calls it "an attempt to deflect from a credible allegation made by an adult woman, by trying to impugn my mother who has only ever been supportive of me and my siblings." She says: "It's easily disproven, contradicts years of his own statements, is beyond hurtful to me personally, and is part of a larger effort to discredit and distract from my assault," she continued. "My brother is a troubled person. I'm so sorry he's doing this." Is Moses at all credible here? His story is so different from Dylan's! Could Mia Farrow really be guilty of abuse??

R. Kelly "Sex Dungeon" And Secret Wedding Details Uncovered In New BBC Documentary!

We've heard a lot about R. Kelly's alleged sex cult over the past few months. Now Kitti Jones, who previously opened up to Rolling Stone about her experience being "trained" by the singer starting in 2011, is spilling more disturbing deets.

Now Kitti Jones, who previously opened up to Rolling Stone about her experience being "trained" by the singer starting in 2011, is spilling more disturbing deets. Related: Celebrity Mentalist Comes Forward With What He Knows About R. Kelly In a new BBC3 documentary special called R Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes, Jones says Kelly admitted to having a 14-year-old girl as one of the "pets" in his "sex dungeon." Jones recalls on camera first meeting this young woman: "I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained' since she was 14, those were his words. I saw that she was dressed like me, that she was saying the things I'd say and her mannerisms were like mine. That's when it clicked in my head that he had been grooming me to become one of his pets. He calls them his pets." Horrifying. But Jones didn't run screaming. She was apparently still under Kelly's sway because she says she stayed through what came next. She says Kelly commanded the woman to "crawl on the floor towards me and perform oral sex on me, and he said, ‘This is my fucking pet, I trained her. She's going to teach you how to be with me.'" Video: Karen McDougal Says Donald Trump Called Her 'Beautiful Like' Ivanka Eesh. Jones goes on to say Kelly was "very abusive, physically, mentally, verbally" throughout her time with him: "I think he gets some sort of satisfaction within himself, knowing that he's taking control over other people." Obviously Kelly's alleged predilection for underage girls has been widely rumored for over a decade. He was found not guilty of child porn charges after allegedly filming himself with a 14-year-old girl. He reportedly paid off others he was accused of having sex with, like 15-year-old Tiffany Hawkins, in out-of-court settlements. But the most famous of these claims was that Kelly had secretly married the late pop star Aaliyah when she was just 15 -- something Kelly has always denied. In the documentary his former manager, Rocky Bivens, claims this rumor was true -- and he himself was present at the wedding. Shocking stuff.

Kelly Ripa Reveals Regis Philbin"s Strict "Mandate" Made It So They Couldn"t Talk Off Camera!

People may still be getting used to Ryan Seacrest, but know his on screen chemistry with Kelly Ripa is legit.

In fact, Kelly proved this point to be true when she discussed how different her off camera relationship with Seacrest is in comparison to the one she had with Regis Philbin. Oooh, go on. Related: Meghan McCain Has Been Having A Hard Time On The View In case you forgot, Miz Ripa joined Live! 16 years ago, back when Regis was running the show. During her cohosting days with the Bronx native, everyone used to applaud the on camera chemistry they had. However, while speaking with The New York Times, Ripa revealed that Regis was pretty strict about not talking to each other off camera. Apparently, the industry vet didn't want to waste good material if the cameras weren't rolling. The 46-year-old explained: "Regis had a mandate: Absolutely no talking off-camera. He had almost a superstition about it. You save it for the show. I'd be like, ‘Good morning,' and he'd say, ‘Save it for the air!'" Kelly went on to follow this mandate when Michael Strahan joined the team -- we know, for Kelly's sake, we feel bad even mentioning his name -- but broke from tradition when the American Idol host took the reigns. Yup, Kelly now socializes off-camera with her cohost. The two regularly text each other and like to hang out on the weekends. This explains why the former soap star had only glowing things to say about the media mogul. On Ryan's contribution to Live!, Kelly gushed: "He's the future of the franchise. He's the future of ABC." Awwwww. Seacrest clearly feels similarly, as he told the Times: "If it were raining outside and there was a puddle, I'd want to stand in front of Kelly so she wouldn't get wet. There's that protection thing." So sweet. We're glad to hear that things are going so well between the two TV personalities. Hopefully, their dynamic can sustain as Ryan starts to juggle both Live! and Idol. Fingers crossed!! [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»

Part One Of The Bachelor Finale Was A Fucking Disaster — Recap HERE

Shame on Arie Luyendyk Jr. and shame on ABC. During part one of The Bachelor finale on Monday, the former race car driver ended his relationship with Lauren Burnham (right after telling her he loves her) during the final rose ceremony in Peru, and got down on one knee and proposed to Becca Kufrin. After several weeks [...] Shame on Arie Luyendyk Jr. and shame on ABC. During part one of The Bachelor finale on Monday, the former race car driver ended his relationship with Lauren Burnham (right after telling her he loves her) during the final rose ceremony in Peru, and got down on one knee and proposed to Becca Kufrin. After several weeks of engaged bliss, Arie took a camera crew to an unsuspecting Becca to break up with her and tell her he was leaving her for his runner-up, Lauren. During the last 45 minutes of the three hour special, we had to uncomfortably watch Becca get her heart broken in what the network says was completely unedited, raw footage. And every time Becca told Arie to "just leave," he just lingered around while cameras were shoved down Becca's throat. Related: Corinne Olympios Has Insight Into Tori Spelling's Apparent Breakdown Arie told Becca during his breakup speech: "The reality of it is that being with you, although it's been everything that I wanted, I still think about her. And I think you sense that. I think for me, the more I hung out with you, the more I felt like I was losing the possibility of maybe reconciling things with Lauren." To which she responded: "Are you fucking kidding me?" The episode ended with a brief interview between Becca and Chris Harrison, during which she said it was "brutal" to watch it all back: "When it all happened, I feel like I kind of blacked out. I cried for probably four days straight I am angry at times. I grieved the loss of that relationship and the future that I thought we were gonna have. I am angry at times. I feel betrayed a lot of the time just because I feel like I was lied to for so long." The truth of the matter is that Arie should have never proposed in the first place, especially when he told Lauren moments before that he was in love with her AND clearly wasn't ready to go all in with Becca. THEN, he should have given Becca the common courtesy of not completely blindsiding her with a breakup in front of camera crews. Trash. ALL OF IT IS TRASH. Anywho, Becca has since started her campaign to be The Bachelorette broken her silence ahead of Tuesday night's finale, talking to People about everything that went down between her and Arie. Turns out, Arie had been liking several of Lauren's photos on Instagram while he was still engaged to Becca. He even gave Lauren a call "to apologize" for how they ended, but ultimately decided he wanted to abandon Becca's ship. Why didn't we get "raw, unedited" footage of THAT conversation, huh ABC??? Becca told the outlet of the heartbreaking split: "He's a good person, I don't think he's a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way. But it's just the result of his actions. At the end of the day, I don't think he thought through everything of how ending things with Lauren would be, how being engaged to me would be and what breaking up with me and going back to her would be. I don't think he thought it through, but I don't think he did it maliciously to break my heart." The 27-year-old added of the morning she got engaged in Peru before the final rose ceremony: "That morning, I woke up and I was very oddly calm. I just felt it in my heart. I just knew it was me — that him and I were going to be together. There were still nerves, but I never was too anxious or worked up about it because I just felt it was right with us ... I felt like my heart was going to burst because it was just so filled with love to be with him and share that news with our friends and family. There was so much excitement and joy. It was an overabundance." Becca revealed it wasn't until the newly-engaged duo got back to the States that Arie admitted he still had feelings for her 26-year-old competitor: "I never thought for a million years that once the going started to get tough that he would throw in the towel and jump ship and say, 'Oh sorry, I changed my mind.' I didn't think we were at that point whatsoever." And reflecting on the moment he broke the news: "I thought we were just going to have a nice romantic weekend. The night before he had turned off his phone, which I thought was strange, and it wasn't until the moment when he walked into the house when he didn't have his suitcases with him, I was like What's going on?" Obviously, it wasn't fun being dumped on national television: "It was embarrassing the way he broke up with me with the full cameras and crew around. There was a better and more tactful way to do it. A breakup is hard enough, and to have it all filmed and have to re-watch it and know that people all across the country are watching you get your heart broken, it is embarrassing. It's not fun. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. It was like a slap in the face. I wish he would have been more honest with me. From the questions I was asking, I would have appreciated the full truth. I was obviously blindsided like, Did I miss something? I was asking you these things and you didn't tell me. What did I miss? How could I have not seen any of this to the extent of how it played out?" While Becca credits Arie for being "open and honest in the fact that he had told Lauren he loved her too," she says that "red flags were being raised" when the series premiered January 1: "At that point, I knew that he had liked some of her Instagram photos so we had a conversation about it. And that was the first time that he really threw it out that he should have a conversation with her and just apologize for how things had ended with her, that he had felt guilty ... He had told me, ‘I still have feelings for her, I'm trying to work through them.' He said it was hard for him to always talk about it in interviews with the press, to relive that relationship. He said he couldn't close that chapter until everything was said and done and the finale aired. That whole time we were just looking at the end goal of this week to finally be done with that and move on and be together and work through it as a team." Becca couldn't understand why her fiancé continued liking his ex's pics online, saying she "definitely went through all of the emotions. I was upset, I was angry at times, I felt betrayed. When I started noticing those little things like the Instagram likes, I was trying to come at it from a relationship standpoint to compromise and talk through it": "I would question if he was ready to be engaged and if he was ready at that point to get down on one knee and if not, I'd still stand by him and want to work through it. But of course I'm going to go through all the emotions. I'm a girl, I'm a human being. There was still jealousy there. You're engaged to me, why are you liking another person's photos or still wanting to contact them?" Um. Yeah. WHY, Arie?? Related: How ABC Dealt With The Bachelor Surprise Ending! Becca says she "can't fault" Arie for choosing Lauren, she just wishes he never proposed to her: "I wish he hadn't proposed. At that point I loved him and I wanted to be with him. Even if on that last day, he said, ‘I'm still uncertain, this is a big move, I don't want to get down on one knee unless I'm 1000 percent sure, but I still want to be with you,' I would have been fine with that. I would have been like, ‘I love you, I still want to be with you.' I even asked him a couple times if he felt like he was certain like that was the right move at that point and every time he said, ‘I'm happy with the decision and I feel confident in us.' From what he was telling me and from even that grand gesture, I thought nobody would do that unless they did feel 100 percent confident." She added: "He did get down on one knee, he did propose to me, he did say, ‘I'm committing to you, I choose you every day.' That's something that I only wanted to happen once in my life, and it's been robbed from me, and I can never have that one time moment again. And the second part is that he lied or hid his true feelings and emotions for weeks and weeks and weeks. The number one thing that I value in a relationship is honesty and loyalty, and I feel like I wasn't given that." Ultimately, she's forgiven him and she's ready to move on with her life (AKA probably be the next leading lady): "At the end of the day I wouldn't' change the experience because I met so many amazing people and I fell in love and I had this great experience and memories. I'm still going to feel a sense of compassion for him because I did love him but at this point, I want him to be happy, I want to be done and not have to worry about them anymore. They're going to be together and do their thing. I wanted to move on and have my person that I can focus on and live my life with. At the end of the day, I do forgive him." Good riddance, TBH! Be sure to catch the final two hours to see Lauren, Becca, and Arie all reunite Tuesday night at 8 p.m. EST. [Image via ABC.].....»»

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.].....»»
