R. Kelly’s Reported Reason For Marrying 15-Year-Old Aaliyah Revealed With New Allegations

In August 1994, a 27-year-old R. Kelly wed 15-year-old Aaliyah in one the most controversial moments in the disgraced singer’s career and, given all the information that has leaked out about him, that’s saying a lot. Had she not passed away during a tragic plane crash years after, Aaliyah would have been celebrating her forty-first birthday last week. The star has been brought up numerous times in the midst R. Kelly’s dramatic unfolding in court, including in brand new documents that appear to point to the specific reason why Kelly would get married to an underage Aaliyah in the first place.

According to The Blast, R. Kelly is currently demanding to know the identity two “Jane Does” in his legal cases. Prosecutors are against providing him with that knowledge and they’re pointing to his past to explain why. In relation to Jane Doe #1, Aaliyah’s identity was suggested in court documents, which appear to explain why Kelly wanted to marry her.

“As early as 1994, the defendant took steps to prevent law enforcement from discovering and investigating his crimes,” reportedly state prosecutors in new court documents. “As alleged in the EDNY indictment, in August 1994, the defendant and others bribed a government employee to create false identification for Jane Doe #1. Witnesses have advised the government that the defendant engaged in this bribery scheme to obtain a marriage license so he could quickly and secretly marry Jane Doe #1 to avoid criminal charges for engaging in a ual relationship with Jane Doe #1, who was a minor at the time. Specifically, the defendant believed that his marriage to Jane Doe #1 would prevent her from being able to testify against him in the event he were prosecuted for his criminal ual relationship with her.”

R. Kelly is not currently allowed to know the identity either Jane Doe but it should be pretty clear for him to figure this one out.

Watch The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ Video

The saga continues.

The Weeknd delivers more thills in the action-packed video for “Blinding Lights.” The cinematic clip serves as a sequel to the chart-topping “Heartless,” which dropped last month.

The XO crooner races through the streets of downtown L.A. in his drop-top Mercedes and shows off his Joker-inspired dance moves while donning a red blazer and smoking a cigarette. After dancing with a gorgeous woman, the night ends with him being assaulted by two men, but he is somehow able to find humor in his tragedy.

“Blinding Lights” can also be heard in the Mercedes-Benz EQC campaign, for which The Weeknd serves as creative director.

The Uncut Gems actor will perform his latest single on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday night. He previously performed “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless” on “The Late Show” last month.

Tyrese Suggests Cop Thriller "Black And Blue" Was "Suppressed" Due To Racism

Not every film will be a hit at the box fice, but Tyrese Gibson claims he knows exactly why his movie Black and Blue wasn’t a commercial success. The film stars Naomi Harris as a New Orleans ficer who happens to capture the police shooting death a drug dealer on her body cam. She later realizes that corrupt ficers are responsible and links up with the one person she knows will help her stay alive while bringing down the wicked powers that be.

The film had a budget $12 million and brought in almost $23 million. The action-thriller wasn’t the blockbuster success that producers had hoped for, especially with a cast that also included Frank Grillo, Mike Colter, Reid Scott, and Tyrese Gibson. The latter recently took to his Instagram page to share his thoughts on the movie’s lack momentum, citing that racism was a key factor.

In an Instagram video, Tyrese shared that he’d received Blu-Ray versions his film. He started f by saying he doesn’t usually pull the “race card,” but he’s “speaking facts.” He added, “When Black and Blue was in theaters, they never put the name on the marquee unless you specifically went to the front desk to request the movie, you didn’t even know the movie was playing in certain theaters. So many people were all over the internet going public about what was going on. And we know.”

The Fast & Furious star said that “CG and special effects” films receive so much recognition because “they just want to turn a prit. I get it. I’m apart that game, too. But when you do movies like this that speaks to the culture, that speaks to the reality what we have to live every single day, sh*t can get a little uncomfortable.” Although the movie was “suppressed,” the actor said he was “so proud” to have been involved with Black and Blue.

Check out Tyrese’s full video and the trailer for Black and Blue below. If you’ve seen the movie, let us know if it’s worth watching.

Eddie Murphy Shares Bad Advice From Rodney Dangerfield: "Dunno About The Race Stuff"

Very rarely do the masses get to witness the resurgence a comedic genius such as Eddie Murphy. Then again, there aren’t too many comedians and personalities that are as prolific as the Raw creator. In recent months, the Beverly Hills Cop actor made his return to the Saturday Night Live stage, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 25th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, and made his return to the silver screen starring as Rudy Ray Moore in Dolemite Is My Name. Now, Eddie Murphy is getting candid with the good brothers and sisters  WMagazine in an exclusive one-on-one interview.

During a brief interview with the publication, Murphy spoke on meeting the legendary, blaxploitation actress Pam Grier for the first time and attempting to hold back his lust. He also spoke on his experience as a youth annoying his mother with his imitations, buying Richard Pryor’s comedy album, his first kiss, and more. 

However, there was one story about his run-in with legendary comedian Rodney Dangerfield that stood out the most during the comedian turned actor’s conversation with W. Murphy reveals that he was able to convince Rodney Dangerfield to watch his comedy set at a Florida comedy club while he was still a young buck in the business. 

According to Murphy, his set was full “really dirty” and “edgy racial stuff.” Following his act, Murphy approached Dangerfield seeking his advice to which the clean-cut comic responded, “Hey, kid. I don’t know where you’re gonna go with that — the language and the race stuff.” 

After acquiring mainstream success and becoming world-renowned for his “really dirty” standup acts, Murphy revealed the two met again this time in the bathroom Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and while standing next to each other at the urinals, Dangerfield leaned over and said, “Hey, who knew?!”

Check out the five-minute clip Eddie Murphy charismatically carrying one an unintentionally hilarious conversation with W Magazine and be on the lookout for Eddie Murphy to be hitting the road with brand new material sometime in the near future. 

Tyler Perry’s Netflix Movie, "A Fall From Grace", Gets Ripped Apart On Twitter

At the beginning the month, Tyler Perry tweeted out a video showing f the tall stacks scripts he has lined up for 2020. While he was trying to prove his impressive “work ethic”, many harshly replied with a reminder that quantity does not equate to quality. This incident ended up being a foreshadowing the response to his new Netflix movie, A Fall From Grace, as was the movie’s title.  

Perry’s dedication to being super prolific has at times been at the expense his work. He bragged about shooting A Fall From Grace in just five days and that admission is now coming back to haunt him because the thriller is filled with slip-ups. Twitter is picking apart Perry’s first Netflix feature – which stars Cicely Tyson and Phylicia Rashad – for inconsistent shots, wonky wigs and glaring plot-holes. After this dragging, hopefully Perry will take some more time when bringing to life the slew  scripts he has in the stash. He just built a $250 million studio in Atlanta, so the quality should match the budget, no?

Amid the rollout for his new flick, Perry responded to another criticism that his movies have received – that they exploit black women. You can see the critiques  A Fall From Grace below, though. 

Lakers And Sixers Reportedly Interested In Trade For Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose has been playing quite well for the Detroit Pistons this season and teams have taken notice. In the fseason, some franchises weren’t sure if they wanted to take a risk on Rose and opted to leave him be in free agency. Now, some squads are regretting that decision and are hoping to snag Rose closer to the trade deadline. According to Chris Haynes Yahoo! Sports, two the teams that are particularly interesting in Rose are the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Pistons are a few games out the playf race right now and have Rose left under contract for just one more year. Rose could be a solid rental player for a team that feels like they are a piece away from winning a championship. The Lakers and Sixers are two teams that fit the bill perfectly.

Rose was known for being injury-prone during his days with the Chicago Bulls but now, he is considered to be a solid player who can give you timely scoring. If the Lakers or Sixers were able to land him, they would certainly be entering the playfs at an advantage.

Stay tuned for updates surrounding the NBA trade deadline as we will be sure to bring them to you.

Kobe Bryant Encourages Fans To Embrace LeBron As Part Of Lakers’ "Brotherhood"

Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar LeBron James is closing in on another Lakers legend on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, as he now sits just 80 points behind Kobe Bryant for third all-time. In a recent interview with Bill Plaschke the Los Angeles Times, Bryant shared his thoughts about being surpassed by LeBron and encouraged diehard Lakers fans to embrace No. 23 as part the Lakers’ brotherhood.

Says Kobe (H/T LA Times):

“When LeBron came to Los Angeles, he is now a Laker, he is part our brotherhood, part our fraternity, and we should embrace him that way.

“You got to celebrate … appreciate what he is as an athlete while he is here. Appreciate this guy, celebrate what he’s done, because it’s truly remarkable.”

The Lakers have four games remaining on their road trip, including Monday night’s nationally televised game at the TD Garden in Boston. Needless to say, there’s a good chance that LeBron surpasses Kobe before the Lakers return to Staples Center.

But even if LeBron fails to score 80 points in the next four road games, Kobe has no plans  showing up to Staples Center to witness the feat in person.

“I won’t go to the game,” Bryant said. “I’d rather that be about him.”

“I’ll for sure call him and tell him congratulations,” Bryant said. “I’m so happy for ‘Bron, all he’s accomplished and continues to accomplish, he’s been great.”

The Lakers (34-8) will take on the Celtics tonight, followed by back-to-back games against the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, and a Saturday night showdown with the Sixers, airing on ABC at 8:30pm ET.

In the clip below, Jibran and Leilani are seen driving down the street when they accidentally hit a cyclist. Within minutes a man who calls himself a cop takes over the steering wheel and ends up killing the man, leaving them with the car and the police on the way. “Initially they were written for white people which, plot-wise, would have been a different story,” Issa said the movie. “It’s not a story about race but we wanted to acknowledge our race and the fact that we’re an interracial couple.”

“The aspects I love the most are the rare moments sweetness between the two leads,” Kumail said his favorite moments. “They spend so much the movie bickering that the hints what they used to be are my favorite.”

The film hits theaters on April 3rd. 

Harvey Weinstein Requests Change Of Venue For Trial Due To "Stealth Jurors"

With the staggering number accusations ual misconduct made against Harvey Weinstein, it seems highly unlikely that his trials work out in his favor. However, he is putting up a fight whenever he can in hopes that the legal system won’t totally crush him. We reported that Gigi Hadid was dismissed from jury duty for Weinstein’s case due to her personal affiliation with Cara Delevigne, who was one the many women to come forward with an account Weinstein’s predatory behaviour. However, there are more jurors that Weinstein and his team believe could interfere with a fair trial. 

On Friday, the disgraced film producer demanded a mistrial over a newly-chosen juror in his Manhattan Supreme Court case. According to NY Daily News, Weinstein’s legal team is arguing that the juror’s upcoming novel deals with topics that could compromise her impartiality during the trial. The novel allegedly focuses on the relationships between three teenage girls and predatory older men, a storyline that allows for connections to be drawn to Weinstein’s supposed transgressions. Manhattan Assistant D.A. Joan Illuzzi objected to the claims mistrial, arguing that the defense was “systematically eliminating a class people from this jury” — white women.

According to TMZ, Weinstein’s legal team has gathered some evidence that two “stealth jurors” have been selected, who should be removed from the twelve-person panel. Legal documents filed by Weinstein’s lawyer, Arthur Aidala, cite instances social media activity that should call into question the prospective jurors’ biases. One wrote, “Goodbye Jury Duty. And goodbye Harvey Weinstein. I hope they convict you on all counts…I was told not to talk about the trial if I was a juror… I don’t know if it’s my past as a lawyer or my past at Disney but I’m free for the next 4 years- unlike Harvey!” The other wrote on Facebook, “Ok that was my time on the Weinstein case. Do I get paid? I don’t get up before 5 for free. Harvey you cant sic] act for sh*t with that walker you made it look like a prize on The Price is Right. Also they’re gonna crucify you.”

Singer David Olney Dies On Stage During Performance

Singer-songwriter David Olney died Saturday night at age 71 during a performance at 30A Songwriters Festival in Florida, according to Variety.

Olney became still during his performance, which was assumed to be him taking a moment to rest, but then, those nearby realized what was happening and lowered him to the stage.

Amy Rigby, who was sitting next to him, described his last moments in a Facebook post: “Olney was in the middle his third song when he stopped, apologized, and shut his eyes,” Rigby wrote. “He was very still, sitting upright with his guitar on, wearing the coolest hat and a beautiful rust suede jacket we laughed about because it was raining like hell outside the boathouse where we were playing — I just want the picture to be as graceful and dignified as it was, because it at first looked like he was just taking a moment.”

“Scott Miller had the presence mind to say we needed to revive him. Doctors in the audience and 30A folks were all working so hard to get him to come to … We all lost someone important last night,” she added.

Olney was born in 1948 and recorded 20 albums throughout his career. The following video was uploaded earlier on the day his death.

Leslie Jones Boycotted The Comedy Cellar Over Louis C.K. Support

The Comedy Cellar is one America’s most well-known institutions in the world comedy. The New York City venue has hosted most stand-up legends and continues to be a hub for up-and-coming talent and established acts alike. A stain was left on The Comedy Cellar’s respected history when the owner allowed Louis C.K. to perform there in late 2018 after admitting to multiple incidents ual misconduct. Protesters gathered outside the club to express their disapproval the disgraced comic being granted this platform. Leslie Jones protested this decision in her own way. 

In a freshly-published prile for The New York Times, Jones divulged that she stopped performing at The Comedy Cellar in light its support Louis C.K. “I am at the age when I will get f the boat and get on another damn boat,” the former Saturday Night Live star said. The prile highlights that Jones was the only comedian to boycott the club for this reason. “I knew girls,” she told the Times, “and they got to walk into the club and see him talking to the owner. That ain’t cool.” 

Jones has since returned to testing out material at The Comedy Cellar. Her comedy special for Netflix, Time Machine, was released this week and she is set to star in the Coming To America sequel.

NFL Championship Weekend: Predicting Who Is Super Bowl Bound

January is the most wonderful time the year if you’re a football fan. The month is filled with playf games and intriguing matchups that determine which teams will be going to the Super Bowl. Of course, the Super Bowl is in February but the bulk the games are in January which ultimately makes it a special month. The first two weekends in January were particularly entertaining this year as we were graced with some incredible Wild-Card and Divisional round performances. Last weekend provided us with some especially juicy drama as the best team in the league, the Baltimore Ravens, were bested by a seemingly inferior Tennessee Titans squad. Meanwhile, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes shocked football fans with a 51-point outing against the Houston Texans. Oh, and did we mention the Chiefs were down 24-0 in that game?

Heading into championship weekend, four teams remain. These squads are the Titans, Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, and San Francisco 49ers. What makes this season so incredible, is that we truly have no idea who the frontrunner is. The playfs are as wide open as they’ve ever been and it’s made for one the most entertaining postseasons we’ve had in years. Two weekends from now, two the four aforementioned teams will be vying for the Super Bowl. In this preview, we will be trying to predict who those teams will be.

Disclaimer: We are 6-2 with our picks so far and two those losses were unforeseen upsets. Needless to say, we’re pretty good.


AFC Championship: Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs

NFL Championship Weekend: Predicting Who Is Super Bowl Bound

Brett Carlsen/Getty s 

Earlier this season, the Kansas City Chiefs were struggling to get any momentum going with their defense. Patrick Mahomes was coming f a dislocated kneecap and what was thought to be an up and coming team, was looking like pretenders. In the tenth game the season, the Chiefs lost to a surging Tennessee Titans team by a score 35-32. Following that game, the Chiefs went on a six-game winning streak and now, they find themselves a win away from a Super Bowl. The only team in their way is, as fate would have it, the Titans.

The Titans have been quite the story themselves. They were down and out at the beginning the season but once they benched Marcus Mariota, things started to turn around. Ryan Tannehill magically turned into an MVP-caliber quarterback while running back Derrick Henry turned into a bonafide star. After squeaking into the playfs, the Titans made the most their opportunity. They knocked f the greatest dynasty our time, the New England Patriots, while also defeating the league-best Baltimore Ravens.

Both teams have had an interesting path to this moment and it will certainly make for an interesting matchup. Now the real question is: who is going to win? Well, the Titans won the first game so you can’t write them f just yet. However, it’s pretty clear that one team is much better than the other, at least on paper. Of course, we’re talking about the Chiefs. Simply put, the Chiefs have all the fensive weapons in the world. Ever since his knee injury, Mahomes has been the MVP quarterback we know him to be. He scored five touchdowns against the Texans last weekend and he’ll be looking to have yet another big game. Players like Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, and Travis Kelce are poised for big games and their speed will prove to be too much for the Titans secondary. Even running back Damien Williams has been active which means the Titans defense needs to watch out.

As for the Titans, their fense has been dominated by Henry. In the last two games, Tannehill has thrown for less than 100 yards as the team relies on Henry’s ability to run out the clock. While the strategy seems to be working, it only makes sense when you’re winning. If the Titans find themselves in a hole early, Henry alone won’t help this team win. What helps the Titans is the Chiefs’ weak rushing defense. Had the Texans run the ball more last weekend, they probably wouldn’t have given up their big lead so soon. Henry is more than capable eating up time and taking a chunk out the Chiefs defense. Having said that, it’s a strategy that won’t be effective enough to counter Mahomes who can score whenever he feels like it.

Thanks to Henry and Tannehill’s ability to go deep every once and a while, the Titans will keep it close. Despite this, the Chiefs are just too much to overcome and after the AFC Championship game last year, the Chiefs will be ready to come through and punch their ticket to the big game.

Winner: Chiefs (31-24)


NFC Championship: Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers

NFL Championship Weekend: Predicting Who Is Super Bowl Bound

Dylan Buell/Getty s

Coming into this season, the Green Bay Packers were considered to be down and out. Aaron Rodgers has started his decline and after last season, he appeared, dare I say it, uncoachable. Head coach Matt LaFleur wasn’t given much a chance to succeed and the team as a whole was thought to be among the weakest in the NFC North. Rodgers and company went on to exceed all expectations and finished atop their division with a record 13-3. After a convincing win in the Divisional Round, the Packers have proved themselves as a real contender.

After a disastrous 2018 campaign, the San Francisco 49ers have come back with a vengeance thanks to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and a plethora talented running backs. Not to mention, the 49ers defense has been lights out and is virtually impossible to get going against, unless you’re the New Orleans Saints. The 49ers dominated their division and ended up finishing the season with a 13-3 record. Last weekend, the 49ers beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 in the Divisional round and they are looking like one the most likely teams to go out and win the Lombardi trophy.

Earlier in the season, these two played and it wasn’t even close. The 49ers won by a score 37-8 and Rodgers looked downright anemic. This time around, the game will certainly be closer as the Packers will be looking to prove themselves against the clear favorite. Heading into this one, the 49ers are 7.5 point favorites and not many fans are giving the Packers a chance. In terms the matchup, it’s fairly obvious the 49ers have the advantage. Sure, Rodgers is a better QB than Garoppolo but its the pieces around the QB’s that makes all the difference. Running backs like Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and Matt Preida have helped turn the 49ers fense into a powerhouse. Add the playcalling head coach Kyle Shanahan into the mix and you have yourself an unstoppable force. The Packers struggled to stop them the first time out and the second time will prove to be difficult, as well.

The Packers certainly have significant weapons as well. Devante Adams has been a dynamic route runner for the Packers while Jimmy Graham can provide some clutch plays when it matters. Running back Aaron Jones has also been an x-factor for the team and if the Packers get an early lead, look for them to utilize Jones for the majority the game. While these pieces are significant, they will be in for a tough time against defensive juggernauts like Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, and Richard Sherman. The 49ers proved to be the hardest team the Packers played against this year and Sunday is going to be even harder since so much will be on the line.

Unlike the previous matchup, this game will be somewhat close but expect the 49ers to come out on top. Rodgers certainly has the ability to prove us wrong but at this point in the season, it’s hard to deny everything the Niners have been able to accomplish.

Winner: 49ers (28-20)

Who do you think is going to win this weekend? Let us know in the comments below.

6ix9ine’s Former Security Refuses To Work For Him Again, Not Worth The Risk: Report

We’re months away from the possible release Tekashi 6ix9ine, and as that date approaches, there continues to be much speculation as to how the disgraced rapper will fare outside prison. Recently, the mother his child, Sara Molina, shared that she won’t allow their daughter to see him until he undergoes a psychiatric evaluation and she knows that the environment he’s in is safe. There have been rumors over the last few months that 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, has plans on hiring round the clock security, but according to a new report by TMZ, it doesn’t look like he’ll be taking on any his security ficers from his old team.

According to the outlet, Hernandez’s former bodyguards have cut ties with the rapper. Although they are familiar with Hernandez and had worked for him for quite some time, his reputation on the streets as a snitch is keeping them at bay. Back in October 2018, Hernandez added a few new members to his security squad that included Big Church and Big Adam, two Floyd Mayweather’s former guards commonly known as “The Great Wall.” 

TMZ adds that Hernandez’s security already felt as if his reckless behaviors put them in dangerous situations, but after he’s testified against a number his gang-affiliated associates, there’s no way they can protect the young star. The publication states that the security team just doesn’t think being employed by Hernandez is worth the risk.
