R. Kelly Allegedly Broke Jail Rules With Illegal Communication: Report

R. Kelly‘s star power may have got him out a few binds in the past but these days, the feds have all eyes on him. As the singer awaits his day in court, he’s facing more allegations from the prosecutors about his alleged conduct inside the jail system. According to The Blast, prosecutors have accused R. Kelly violated prison regulations with unmonitored communication with the outside.

It all started when Kelly tried to file a motion in his recent criminal case demanding to know the names the two Jane Does list in the criminal indictment for his own defense. Prosecutors later argued his history harassment towards his accusers. “At the time his arrest Mr. Kelly was living in a small condominium, working with his longtime producer, without other employees note, and effectively without any income. He had no “enterprise” as the government likes to call his career and his business, RSK Enterprises,” said Kelly’s lawyer.

Prosecutors pointed out an incident a threatening letter sent to an accuser. Kelly’s lawyer said that he doesn’t know how to read or write but the prosecutors said that doesn’t mean he can’t direct others to write it for him. 

In terms unmonitored conversation, they said he took purposeful “steps on multiple occasions to bypass these safeguards. 

In November 2019, the defendant, in contravention prison regulations, used an intermediary to smuggle a letter a third party wrote to him into the detention center where he is currently housed. The letter was marked “Legal” – in an attempt to avoid inspection the correspondence – and was provided to the defendant during a legal visit by an attorney who is not one the defendant’s attorneys record in this case (the “Attorney”) during a visit with the Attorney. Again, it is clear, despite the defendant’s claims to the contrary, that he has methods passing messages between himself and his confederates with no evidence visits or telephone calls between them.

These incidents demonstrate that the defendant has sought out, and likely will continue to seek out, clandestine means communication. It also demonstrates that the defendant has, at his disposal, individuals willing to assist him in bypassing the traditional methods used to monitor the defendant’s communications while incarcerated. In these circumstances, the defendant’s attempt to paint himself as being completely isolated from the outside world and unable to communicate without monitoring such that obstructive conduct would be impossible is simply not credible.

These same documents filed also alleged Kelly used his marriage to Aaliyah to avoid prosecution. 

Antonio Brown Locks Himself In Home Amid Investigation, Drops Music

Kansas vs Kansas State Game Ends In Massive Brawl: Watch

Tuesday night’s Big 12 matchup between Kansas State and Kansas ended with a massive brawl, which will surely result in lengthy suspensions for both Wildcats and Jayhawks players alike.

The whole thing started as Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa was dribbling out the clock, a 22-point lead in hand. Rather than let the seconds tick f the clock, K-State’s DaJuan Gordon stole the ball and took f for a layup, prompting De Sousa to give chase. The Jayhawks’ big man blocked Gordon’s shot at the rim, sending the freshman crashing to the floor.

And then, as seen in the footage embedded below, all hell broke loose Allen Fieldhouse.

In addition to all the punches thrown, De Sousa was seen holding a stool over his head before an assistant coach intervened and grabbed it from him. The whole thing was like something you’d see at WWE’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view.

“It’s not something to be proud ,” said Kansas head coach Bill Self. “What happened showed zero signs toughness. It’s a sign immaturity and selfishness more so than toughness.”

“It should have been avoided,” Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. “It’s my guys — it’s my fault. They came here wanting to have a game, compete, and we didn’t compete the way we needed to, and probably a little frustration, especially the young guys.”

It remains to be seen what kind punishment the players will face for their actions. The two teams will meet again on February 29 at Kansas State.

Joaquin Phoenix Ditched SAG Awards After Party For Slaughterhouse Vigil

On Sunday night, Joaquin Phoenix won “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role in a Motion Picture” at the SAG Awards for his performance in Joker. He also snagged “Best Actor” at the Golden Globes, but he doesn’t seem to be too focused on himself amid all this award season praise.

After making a brief appearance at a SAG Award after party on Sunday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Phoenix left to attend a vigil for pigs at a nearby slaughterhouse. The actor joined the activist group, Los Angeles Animal Save, outside the Farmer John processing plant in Vernon, California, which is located less than five miles outside Los Angeles. The vigil entailed giving water and support to the pigs before they are sent to their deaths. Videos show Phoenix, still dressed in his tux, going up to the trailer that contains the pigs to bear witness to their plight.

According to TMZ, Farmer John allows for the trailer to be parked for two minutes twice a week – on Wednesdays and Sundays – to facilitate these vigils. The founder Los Angeles Animal Save, Amy Jean Davis, detailed that this isn’t the first time Phoenix has come to pay his respects to the pigs. “Joaquin’s regular attendance at our vigils in L.A. has inspired activists both locally and globally,” Davis said. “We are so grateful for his voice. All over the world, activists are bearing witness to animals bound for slaughter and waking up the world to their plight.”

KellyAnne Conway Says Martin Luther King Jr. Wouldn’t Want Trump Impeached

Once again, revolutionaries  yesteryear are being used as pawns and talking points to push the narratives this current political administration. With yesterday being observed to celebrate the life and legacy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the FBI, an organization rumored to be a participant in his assassination, Tweeted out a message in remembrance the activist/pastor. Which wasn’t well-received by those aware the organization’s history. Now, White House counselor, KellyAnne Conway, is facing similar criticism for her comments pertaining to an impossible scenario stating that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wouldn’t want Trump to be impeached.  
KellyAnne Conway Says Martin Luther King Jr. Wouldn't Want Trump Impeached

With Monday being a national holiday in observance Dr. King, NBC News White House correspondent, Gef Bennett, decided to pose a question asking Conway what President Trump had planned to commemorate the revolutionary after realizing the President’s public schedule made no reference to honor Dr. King on his nationally-recognized holiday and birthday. 

While asking a very direct question in regards to celebrating the Reverend’s world-renowned holiday, Conway immediately veered f-topic bringing up Donald Trump’s impeachment trial with the Senate which began earlier today stating:

“The president is preparing for Davos and agrees with many the things that Dr. Martin Luther King stood for and agreed with for many years, including unity and equality.” Conway awkwardly resumed, “And he’s not the one trying to tear the country apart through an impeachment process and a lack substance that really is very shameful at this point.”

Conway would then go on to double down on her thoughts, creating an imaginary synopsis insisting that Dr. King would be in support Donald Trump. Confusingly and needlessly saying, Conway continued:

“I’ve held my opinion on it for a very long time. But, when you see the articles impeachment they came out, I don’t think it was within Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the president is not going to be removed from fice, is not being charged with bribery, extortion, high crimes or misdemeanors, and I think that anybody who cares about ‘and justice for all’ on today or any day the year will appreciate the fact that now the president now will have a full-throttle defense on the facts, and everybody should have that.”

While Trump may supposedly have some type relationship with the Reverand’s son, Martin Luther King III, something lets us know that Dr. King wouldn’t approve the alleged criminal activity that has plagued the Oval Office and the Trump administration over the past four years. With Senate hearings underway in the Trump impeachment trial, more cabinet members in the Trump organization will eventually become a lot more vocal. And there’s a good chance that some these fice-holders will also insert their feet into their mouths a la KellyAnne Conway. 

With that said, check out the clip KellyAnne Conway’s made up Dr. Martin Luther King Jr./Donald Trump relationship comments in the video provided below.

"Power" Recap: Tommy’s Episode Is The Most Revealing Yet


Tommy and Ghost have been boys since day one, which is why their time as enemies has been so dramatic. This week’s episode  Power mends the relationship between the two brothers, and also gives fans a hint as to who shot Ghost. Entitled “It’s All Your Fault,” the thirteenth episode the season focuses on Tommy. After last week’s somewhat slow episode, this week Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent deliver the strongest episode mid-season yet. “It’s All Your Fault” begins back at the moment that Tommy kills Proctor’s cousin Benny. At this time, Tommy has one goal in mind: Kill Ghost.

Tommy disposes the body very easily, but Benny’s disappearance worries Elisa Marie and her guardian, Aunt Dolores. Proctor’s family was apparently mob royalty, which leaves Elisa Marie in the care some very dangerous people. This works to her advantage though. Dolores and Vincent have a meeting where the former accuses the latter fing Benny. In order to save face, Vincent gives Dolores two bodyguards and promises to get to the bottom things. Elisa Marie, being a smart young girl, monitors all the mob talk and also listens to the recording her dead father left her. Dolores walks in just as the recording gets good, and the two ladies have a bonding moment. Dolores fills Elisa Marie in on the truth the family, and Elisa identifies Tommy as the voice on the tape. This sets in motion the motivation behind Tommy leaving town, which we saw at the end the last episode. 

Elisa Marie and Dolores take the recording to Tariq, who denies knowing anyone named Tommy and Ghost. His slick act doesn’t work on Dolores, who puts two and two together and quickly calls Tariq out for helping Tommy kill Proctor. Elisa Marie tries to defend Tariq, but Dolores isn’t buying it. She’s a smart woman, because moments later Tariq runs to Tommy, alerting him the recording. Tariq’s movements seem shadier than usual in this episode and the further we get into the show, the more guilty he begins to look. 

Tommy heads over to Truth to presumably kill Ghost for murdering Lakeisha and shutting down his base operations. His plan is foiled, but before he can exit the area Blanca approaches him. The law enforcement ficer hands Tommy Lakeisha’s belongings, and Mr. Egan immediately identifies Tasha’s earring in the bag. Putting the pieces together rather quickly, Tommy heads over to Tasha’s apartment to kill her. Their confrontation is brief, with Tasha admitting to killing Lakiesha within seconds. She gets Tommy to read the papers his deceased lover signed to snitch on him, and reminds him that all her bags were packed in the house. Tommy almost kills her, but decides to let her live at the last moment. This scene is crucial to Tommy’s relationship with Ghost. After he realizes that Ghost did not kill his girl in revenge for killing Angela, Tommy begins to make a 180-degree turn. 

Viewers are brought back to the scene Tommy and Ghost meeting up, somewhat reconciling, and then getting shot at. Tommy discerns that Ghost did not know about the recording Proctor kept either, which is another moment that helps him rebuild trust with his frenemy. After fleeing the scene and escaping a still unknown third party trying to kill Ghost, Tommy heads to Dolores’ house to seize the audio recording. He kills the guards, kidnaps Elisa Marie, and proceeds to pry her for more information. Tommy, who was raised in a harsh environment, ends up empathizing with the daughter the man he murdered. Elisa Marie vents about her drug addict mother and protective father, and asks Tommy if he killed Proctor. Tommy won’t admit his guilt, but his non-answer is an answer enough for the sharp young girl. While Tommy is interrogating Elisa Marie, 2Bit calls and confirms that it was Dre, not Ghost, who snitched out his operation to the police. This is the final moment revelation for Tommy, who decides he needs to reconcile with Ghost. Tommy brings Elisa Marie back to Dolores, unharmed, and goes to speak with Tariq. 

When Tommy tells Tariq that Ghost is innocent these crimes, the younger St. Patrick cares not. Tariq tells Tommy that he believes Dre is trying to kill Ghost, but he refuses to help. If his father dies, he will not be the man to try to stop the situation. The grim outlook from Tariq makes him look suspicious, or at least complicit, in the murder his father. Couple that with the scene last week where Tasha doesn’t answer Paz when asked who killed Ghost, and it makes things seem like Tasha and Tariq had a hand in Ghost’s undoing. After leaving Tariq behind, Tommy attempts to get to Truth to save Ghost from his fate. Unfortunately, Vincent catches up with Tommy and a shootout occurs. Tommy murders the Italians, giving Vincent a particularly gruesome death, and speeds f to Truth. 

Here is our heartbreaking moment: Tommy arrives too late. He walks in to find a dying Ghost, bleeding on the floor, and he looks up to get a clear look at the killer– the camera remaining closely on Tommy’s visage. Tommy looks shocked, he clearly recognizes the killer but a dying Ghost tells him to “let it go.” This is a very important moment. Whoever the killer is, for Tommy to allow them to live means he has some type love or connection to the shooter. Ghost telling Tommy to “let it go” means the dying St. Patrick doesn’t want his killer to die either. That makes Tariq a prime suspect at this point, since Tommy would have extra incentive to kill Tasha, considering he let her live in an earlier scene. It couldn’t possibly be Saxe, because Tommy would shoot him immediately. Ghost dies in Tommy’s arms, also ridding any hope viewers had that he was still alive. The episode wraps with Tommy being viciously shunned by his grieving mother, who gifts him with a present from Ghost’s will before she writes him f as the killer. Tommy takes what he’s given, clears his apartment, and heads on the road. First though, he meets up with Elisa Marie, who gives him the last the recordings. Next, Tommy kills Spanky after a tip from 2Bit about his snitching ways. It’s good to see Tommy make it to the end alive, driving out into the sunset as it were, but this episode raised just as many questions as it answered. It’s a fitting end to Tommy’s storyline, and gives enough room for him to appear in the spinf series. The reconciliation and moment fate between he and Ghost was an integral moment for the final season. We’re one step closer to finding Ghost’s killer.

Report: Despite Rumors, Bengals Have No Plans To Trade 1st Overall Pick

The Cincinnati Bengals will not be trading their 1st overall draft pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

While former LSU assistant Joe Brady will be taking over the fensive coordinator job for Carolina Panthers, Joe Burrow is still seemingly a lock for the Cincinnati Bengals. Burrow is routinely rated as the top prospect entering the draft and just won the College Football Playf National Championship with LSU.

Burrow threw for a record 60 touchdowns this season with only 6 interceptions for 5,671 yards. He also boasted a 76.3% completion rate.

Despite being an obvious trade target for Carolina, Schefter says that sources close to the situation expect the Bengals to hold onto their pick.

“He definitely checks f a lot boxes early on in the evaluation process,” Bengals’ quarterbacks’ coach said on the teams’ in-house website. “He’s definitely an intriguing guy.

Burrow’s father recently said that his son is, “excited to even be in that conversation.” and that “if the Bengals do draft him, he’s going to be happy.”

“He’ll look at it as a challenge,” he continued. “But he’ll be confident that eventually, they can win a lot games there in Cincinnati.”

Prior to transferring to LSU, Burrow spent three seasons at Ohio State and even went to high school outside Cinncinati.

The NFL Draft will take place in April.

A$AP Rocky Thanked Donald Trump For Support During Swedish Imprisonment

New York, NY – A$AP Rocky discussed a past phone call he had with Donald Trump during an interview with The Breakfast Club on Friday (January 17). While reflecting on his legal drama in Sweden, the A$AP Mob member confirmed he spoke with Trump and thanked his unlikely advocate for supporting his prison release last year.

“I spoke to [Trump] to thank ’em,” he said. “I was very thankful for what happened, for him supporting me. I don’t agree with all the political shit that he does at all, but like I said, I was just thankful for everybody who supported me in there. Just keeping it 100 with you.”

Host Charlamagne Tha God tried to probe for more details about the chat with Trump, asking if the president sought to bring Rocky to the White House. But the Harlem-bred rapper downplayed the call and reiterated how thankful he was.

“Regardless of all the political shit, man, I kept it cordial and very respectful because I was thankful,” he noted. “That was it.”

Rocky did admit he was worried about Trump’s support though. He recalled wondering if the president could hurt his case during his imprisonment in Sweden.

“So I’m really in Sweden and thinking about all this political shit, I was kind of thinking it was going to make my situation worse, but I still was thankful,” he stated. “I’m just keeping it 100.”

Rocky was locked up for a month on assault charges in Sweden last summer and was ultimately found guilty at trial. He avoided additional time behind bars at sentencing but was ordered to pay a fine.
