There’s A NEW R. Kelly Sex Tape Involving Another 14-Year-Old Girl , That Has Just Been Turned In To Police

A never-before-seen sex tape has been brought forward involving R. Kelly and a girl that’s believed to be just 14 years old, according to attorney Michael Avenatti.

via TMZ:

Avenatti says the 45-minute long VHS recording was uncovered after multiple clients came to him alleging Kelly had sexually assaulted minors. He claims the video clearly shows Kelly engaging in multiple sex acts with a girl.

CNN first reported the new video’s existence, and says they’ve seen it. According to their report, the girl calls the man — who appears to be Kelly — “daddy,” and also shows her urinating at his request. After that, he urinates on her. CNN says the girl is seen on tape referring to her body parts as “14 years old.”

Avenatti makes it clear this is NOT the video for which Kelly stood trial in 2008 … when he was acquitted.

Avenatti says he has presented the video to the Cook County State Attorney’s Office in Illinois. He does not say when the recording was made … but believes it’s within the statute of limitations.

A source close to R. Kelly reportedly tells TMZ that “it’s unfair to accuse the rapper of any wrongdoing without first trying to authenticate the video.”

You can read Michael Avenatti’s full statement on the new tape below.

In response to press inquiries, attached is a stmt regarding our work on the R. Kelly matter since April, including the discovery of new critical video evidence establishing his guilt. We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that this predator is brought to justice. pic.twitter.com/D0dGFzgXlX

Mo’Nique To Steve Harvey: ‘You Have Been a Problem’

Steve Harvey and Mo’Nique sat down for a discussion about Mo’s many controversies — and the conversation itself needs a 2nd one.

Here’s how it went down, via E!:

For starters, Mo’Nique wanted to express her “hurt” after learning Steve had spoken publicly about her.

“We got labeled as difficult because I said one word and that was no. I said no to some very powerful people. I said no to Oprah Winfrey. I said no to Tyler Perry. I said no to Lee Daniels and I said no to Lionsgate,” she explained on Wednesday’s show. “And the difficulty came in when people that looked like me—like Oprah, Tyler, Lee and I got to put my brother Steve on the list—you all knew I was not wrong. Each one of you said to me, ‘Monique you are not wrong’ and when I heard you go on the air and you said, ‘My sister burnt too many bridges and there’s nothing I can do for her now,’ Steve do you know how hurt I was?”

Steve replied, “I thought you went about it wrong. I felt that you had done yourself a disservice by the way you chose to go about it.”

Over the years, Mo’Nique has claimed that she was blackballed by Hollywood after she refused to campaign for her Oscar-winning film Precious without additional pay. She alleged that some big names attempted to silence her during her pursuit of equality.

At one point in the discussion, Steve admitted that he probably should have called Mo’Nique before talking so publicly.

“I’ve got a lot of stuff going on so I didn’t. When I did call you, I listened to you,” he shared. “But I began telling you at the very beginning, I think we’re going about this the wrong way. Now we keep saying stuff in the interim that keeps making it worse….It’s making it worse. The fact that we’re sitting here arguing like this.”

Mo’Nique, however, didn’t want to call it an argument. Instead, she called it a “conversation.”

“I’ve had to understand how to agree to disagree without being upset and that’s the thing,” she added when supporting her residency at the SLS Las Vegas. “I disagree with my brother. I’m not upset with you. I love you.”

Through their disagreements, Steve wanted to make it clear that he loves Mo’Nique like a sister. In addition, he wants her to succeed in whatever she wants to accomplish in Hollywood.

“I hate what’s happening to you. I hate what they’re saying that’s not true. I want them to know that you are caring, that you’re a great mother, that you’re an incredible talent,” he proclaimed. “I don’t like the fact that you’ve been blackballed. You can be un-blackballed. You’re too talented to have to worry about all of this.”

Before their discussion came to a close, Steve shared that he will try to facilitate conversations between Mo’Nique and “these people” in hopes for open dialogue.

“These people owe you an apology. You owe those people an apology,” he shared. “Then we can move forward.”

Steve added, “Looking back on it, I should have picked up the phone and called you more readily. I probably should have done it. Moving forward, as your big brother, I just want to help you Mo. I swear to God. I didn’t come here to bash you. I love you. I wish you well and let’s heal this thing and move forward so the world can see how great we all are.”

So what did people think of the interview? On Wednesday afternoon, “Steve Harvey” began to trend on Twitter with many criticizing the talk-show host. 

I Love me some Mo , she tells it like it is!

Mystikal Is A Free Man Again , After Posting $3 Million Bond!

After spending a little over a year 8n the slammer on rape charges, Mystikal has been released after posting $3 million bond.

via TMZ

Mystikal’s attorneys tell us the rapper was able to scrape together $3 million for the bond … securing his release from a Louisiana prison. We’re told the money came from an advance for a new recording deal, and funds raised by Mystikal’s family and friend.

TMZ broke the story … Mystikal — real name Michael Tyler — was ironing out the final details last month. He’d been behind bars since August 2017 when he was booked for first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping. 

Mystikal’s attorney, Tim Yazbeck, tells TMZ … “It’s been a long time coming for Mike, but now he can get back to being the artist he is, doing what he loves, and seeing his kids again.”

The rapper’s now free until his pending trial in May.

Mystikal’s other legal eagle, Joel Pearce, tells TMZ … they’re confident in their case. Pearce said, “Based on all of the evidence we have, we strongly believe that an amicable resolution is not only possible but probable as an outcome in this case and that Michael Tyler will never be made to return to jail for a crime he didn’t commit.”

Prison is such a scam. SOME Crimes shouldnt have no bond

‘Black-ish’ To Do A Young Rainbow Spin-Off Set in the 80s and 90s

Black-ish could be giving viewers another dope spinoff.

via Complex:

According to Deadline, a Rainbow-focused episode will be the highlight of ABC sitcom’s fifth season. It will feature flashbacks to early events in her life in addition to serving as the potential gateway into a Black-ish prequel centered around Rainbow’s childhood.

As fans know, the character played by Tracee Ellis Ross had a unique multicultural upbringing. This plus the theatrics surrounding her home life would serve as the show’s muse. Like the upcoming episode, the plot’s set in the 1980s and ’90s and will follow the franchise’s trend of using comedy to answer societal questions.

The idea of a Bow-based spinoff has been tossed around since before the launch of Grown-ish. Originally, the series that follows the college maturation of the Johnsons’ daughter Zoey (Yara Shahidi) was pitched as a project about Rainbow and Zoey’s relationship. After critiques, it turned into the show it is today and quickly became a hit for ABC affiliate Freeform.

Although no deals have been completed, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is predicted to serve as an executive producers, with Ross likely to do the same. It’s unclear if the series would stay on ABC and its affiliates or follow Barris to his new home at Netflix. Either way, the success of both Black-ish and Grown-ish combined with the popularity of Tracee Ellis Ross are perfect ingredients for an instant fan-favorite.

Mo’Nique On Whoopi Goldberg : ‘She Has Always Been the Help’

Mo’Nique sat down for an interview with Vulture a year after she asked for us to boycott Netflix and held nothing back.

It’s a long read , but she did go into detail about her on going feud with Whoopi Goldberg after she appeared on The View last year.

Check out this excerpt:

After you announced your Netflix boycott, you went on radio shows like The Breakfast Club and Sway in the Morning to explain what had happened. Then when you appeared on The View, Whoopi Goldberg told you?

“I’m going to stop you because, contractually, when you make a movie, regardless of who you sign the deal with, your job is to go and promote said movie.” She continued saying, “And we’ve had this conversation, and I said if you had called me I could’ve schooled you on what was expected.” When I sat there on that platform on The View, I felt sorry. I had empathy for my sister Whoopi Goldberg. Because what you’re saying to me is, “You must work for free. I could’ve schooled you.” The very thing I went to The View to speak about was the very thing I experienced on The View. You give me three minutes to talk about inequality? Well, I was there the whole show. When you have a woman saying, “I could have schooled you,” someone would say, “What was the schooling going to be?” When I look at this woman you say is our icon and our legend — she is. But, how many things has Whoopi Goldberg executive produced? Whoopi Goldberg has always been the help, and I say that humbly. So what is it that you’re going to school me on? I’ve been doing it for almost 30 years.

This is a woman who says “I could have schooled you,” and this is a woman who accepted Ted Danson in blackface, and our community praises this woman. So oftentimes, we do it to ourselves. But, I just can’t. Understand, I love my sister. However, when you know you’re being fed the wrong food, you must say, “I can’t chew this, y’all.”

Was there ever an opportunity to address Whoopi privately? I feel like a lot of these things kept happening publicly.
Whoopi and I did have a conversation after that. I was up in Whoopi Goldberg’s dressing room — and you’re the first person I’m telling this to. I said to Whoopi Goldberg, “Listen, sister.” Because she said, “Mo’Nique, you gotta let that go. You gotta move on. People just wanna see what’s going to happen to you next.” I said, “Whoopi, I can’t let it go. I gotta think about the little sister who’s not here yet.” And our icon and our legend said, “You better stop worrying about the little sister who’s not here yet and worry about you.” In that moment I knew I was looking at a woman who didn’t give a damn about me. And if she’s telling me, “Stop worrying about that little girl who not here yet,” well, she forgot about the ones that came before her who were worried about her.

Common Speaks On ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ : ‘I Can’t Condone That’

Common says that he and the black community failed R. Kelly’s victims by not listening to their stories sooner.

via Complex:

In an interview with TMZ, Common shouldered his share of the blame for Kelly’s continued success in spite of numerous stories of abuse. The Chicago native said that many people were willing to overlook Kelly’s misdeeds to remain fans. 

“I’m guilty of that too myself because I didn’t stop and be like, ‘Yo,’ and speak against this,” he said. “R. Kelly’s from my hometown. At the end of the day, he’s a human being. He has his issues and we see that, but I can’t condone that and I shouldn’t be allowing that to happen. We failed our community as black people.”

“We failed as a community because we knew these things were happening,” Common continued. “And instead of trying to be like, ‘Yo. Let’s go and try to resolve this situation and free these young ladies and stop this thing that’s going on,’ we were just like, ‘Man, we rocking to the music.’”

Common is not the first Chicago musician to speak out against Kelly. In an old interview that was used in the Surviving R. Kelly series, Chance the Rapper admitted he regrets working with the R&B singer. He said that his hypersensitivity to the oppression of black men caused him to overlook the suffering of black women, particularly R. Kelly’s accusers.
