R. Kelly Cops Check on 2 Women … Allegedly Being Held Hostage

Exclusive Details

R. Kelly came face-to-face with cops in Chicago after an anonymous caller claimed the singer was holding two women hostage.

The Cook County State Attorney’s Office got a tip Friday that Kelly was at his Trump Tower residence with the women … and he was holding them against their will. We’re told cops raced to the property and made contact with R. Kelly and the women.

Our sources say 5 officers came to the home and ordered Kelly into the other room while they questioned the women. According to Chicago PD, both women said they were at the residence voluntarily and nothing untoward was going on. Police then left without incident. 

We’re told the 2 women were Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, both of whom have maintained they were with R. Kelly voluntarily, despite their parents’ strong claims they were the victims of brainwashing.

TMZ broke the story … cops were called to a Chicago club Thursday morning after a tip was called in that Kelly was at the club partying and there was a warrant out for his arrest. Officers spoke with Kelly — determined there was no warrant — and let the singer continue to party. 

As we reported … Cook County State Attorney Kimberly Foxx has publicly urged victims of Kelly to come forward. We’re told the victim hotline has been burning up ever since.

We’re told Chief also commissioned a few cartoon versions of himself because … why not?

He dropped a bundle, but check out our gallery … won’t cost you a dime.

DeAndre Hopkins Donating NFL Playoff Check to Help Murdered Girl’s Family

Breaking News

Houston Texans superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins says every penny from his NFL Wild Card round playoff paycheck will go to the family of a 7-year-old girl who was gunned down this weekend on a Texas highway. 

Jazmine Barnes was killed around 7 AM on Sunday morning when a man in a red pickup truck pulled up next to the family car and opened fire for no apparent reason. The family was going on an early morning coffee run at the time of the incident. 

Jazmine’s mother, LaPorsha Washington, was also struck in the attack — but she survived. Jazmine’s 3 sisters were also in the car during the shooting and suffered cuts from shattered glass. 

A manhunt is now underway in Texas — the suspect has been described as a white man with a beard who appears to be in his 40s. 

Officials say it doesn’t appear the family did anything to provoke the driver. 

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said, “There was nothing to indicate that the family did anything wrong in any way … They were simply just driving along the service road when this happened to them.”

Clearly, the story has resonated with Hopkins — who said, “When I see Jazmine Barnes’ face, I see my own daughter.”

“I’m pledging my playoff check this week to help her family with funeral costs and to support @shaunking @SherriffED_HCSO @SylvesterTurner in bringing this man to justice. On Saturday, I will be playing in your honor, Jazmine.”

Social activist Shaun King has announced a $ 100,000 reward is being offered for info that leads to the arrest of the killer. 

Hopkins and the Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.

‘Southern Charm’ Star J.D. Madison Busted for Bad Check

EXCLUSIVE

J.D. Madison — best known as Thomas Ravenel‘s buddy on “Southern Charm” — got arrested for allegedly writing a bad check … TMZ has learned.

Madison was picked up by cops Saturday in Charleston County, SC after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He’s been booked on a check violation charge and is still being held … we’re waiting on more details.

It’s been a rough few months, legally speaking, for both J.D. and Thomas. Madison was reportedly accused of sexual assault in August by a woman who claims he slipped a drug in her drink and raped her. She filed a police report about the alleged 2017 incident.

And, as we reported … Ravenel was arrested in South Carolina in September for assault and battery after he too was accused of trying to rape a woman.

We reached out to Madison … no word back, so far.

Elon Musk Can You Dig It? Check Out How I’m Gonna Unsnarl Traffic!!!

Elon Musk made his grand reveal Tuesday night … what he once envisioned as a “weird little Disney ride in the middle of L.A.” became a reality with the unveiling of his underground tunnel.

The billionaire entrepreneur gave a preview of what future traffic in L.A. might look like with this 1.14-mile route built under his SpaceX headquarters. Elon joked back in 2016 he was going to dig tunnels as an alternative to clogged up freeways in L.A. And, here’s his teaser:

A modified Model X equipped with special wheels took members of the media through the tunnel after the SUV descended via elevator. Once underground, the tunnel’s light turned green and off it went. It only hit 35 MPH and it was bumpy, but still … it worked.

When Elon’s vision is complete, the tunnel will include fully autonomous 16-passenger vehicles rocketing under L.A.’s terra firma at 150 MPH. Elon is starting similar projects in Chicago and D.C. … with the hopes of one day taking folks from D.C. to New York in only 29 minutes. 

Gayle King got a taste for “CBS This Morning” and the initial takeoff had her holding on for dear life … and cursing on live TV too.
