R. Kelly has cancelled three tour dates due to poor ticket sales amid allegations that he held six young women captive in 2 homes he is renting in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Kelly vigorously denied the allegations.
This tea comes from a very credible source who doesn't want her name published. According to my source, R. Kelly rents 2 houses in Johns Creek, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta. He keeps his harem of women at a mega mansion in Johns Creek, near the "party house" that you see on the news and all over the blogs.
Several fast young women offered themselves to predatory singer R. Kelly, and now their parents claim they are being held by him in his "cult". Kelly has been dogged by accusations of child molestation.
Last night, singer R Kelly was spotted partying at the Gold Room in Atlanta with his barely legal girlfriend, 18-year-old Halle Calhoun. The 49-year-old singer/songwriter's career was nearly decapitated by pedophile rumors in the early 2000s. A star-struck Chicago jury found Kelly not guilty of urinating on a 14-year-old girl in 2008. His career never fully recovered after that.
Life for R&B singer R. Kelly hasn't been easy since the 48-year-old Chicago native was repeatedly accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with underage girls. Kelly settled a lawsuit filed against him in 1998 by a woman who claims he had sex with her when she was 15 and he was 24.
Then there was his illegal marriage to 15-year-old singer Aallyah, whom he met when she was only 12.
Singer R. Kelly, 47, is having difficulty coming to terms with the news that his oldest daughter Jaya Kelly suffers from gender dysphoria, a mental disconnect between her biological sex and her chosen gender.
“Well, first off don't start by calling her my son," Kelly told WCGI’s The Morning Riot. ”As far as that’s concerned, always believe what you see—with your own eyes that is. That’s the best way to go about this business. I’ve heard a lot of things about a lot of people and it was never true."
R.Kelly's daughter Jaya identifies as a "transguy" on her social media page. A transguy is a biological girl who is transitioning into life as a boy. Jaya, who calls herself Jay, dresses in boys clothing and emulates the testosterone fueled behavior of boys in her peer group.
Jay's mom, reality TV personality Andrea Kelly (Hollywood Exes), seems to be accepting of her daughter's condition. We don't know how dad R. Kelly feels since he is not a constant presence in his daughter's life.

ESPN's acclaimed series of documentaries 30 for 30 profiles the tragic death of Chicago high school basketball phenom Benji Wilson who was shot and killed on the eve of his senior basketball season. Benji was 17 in 1984 when his promising young life was cut short.
Wilson was LeBron James and Kobe Bryant before the NBA changed its rule allowing high school prep stars to enter the NBA draft. Chicago natives Rev. Jesse Jackson, R.Kelly and rapper Common remember the Benji the world never got the chance to know. 'Benji' was directed by Coodie and Chike.
Rappers T.I. and Kendrick Lamar were special guests on BET's 106 & Park today. Watch the video after the break.
In an interview in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Tip "T.I." Harris said, "I've learned that one thing about my life that is certain is trouble.
He continued: "Be that as it may, I shall embrace that fact and not evade it. We all have faults. Before I let you stand on your high horse and point a finger back down at me, I'm going to give you a big, stiff 'Fuck you.'"
The aptly titled Trouble Man album is scheduled for release on Dec. 18.
So singers are beefing now? R. Kelly just released a diss song in which he talks greasy about Ne-Yo who he booted off his tour. Thanks to my girl Fresh over at Crunktastical.net for the link to the diss song.
R. Kelly wrote a song on Whitney Houston's new album. This is the song that R&B diva Monica told me she heard and loved. I wish they would release Whitney's album or at least give us a release date to ease our suffering. At least we know when Mariah comes out. Help is on the way!
