Cops showed up at R. Kelly‘s birthday celebration at a Chicago nightclub … responding to a call about a warrant for the singer’s arrest … TMZ has learned.
Kelly was partying his ass off at V75 Nightclub early Thursday morning when cops say someone dropped a dime … calling them to say Kelly was there, and had a warrant for his arrest. Check out the police dispatcher putting the call out to Chicago PD units.
Law enforcement confirmed to TMZ that they did indeed go to the club and make contact with Kelly — however, once they determined there was NO actual arrest warrant … Kelly was free to go about his business.
It’s unclear if the caller was just pranking Kelly, or if the person really thought there was an arrest warrant … but cops tell us they routinely respond to such calls … just to make sure.
As for Kelly’s party … it was a pretty wild scene.
Lindsay Lohan disappointed some fans by cutting her night short in the city that never sleeps … ’cause she had to get some sleep. Things change.
Lindsay was spotted leaving the Moxy Hotel Monday night in NYC and profusely apologized to fans waiting outside to get a pic with her. She made a swift walk from the joint to her waiting SUV … telling a photog she had to bounce ’cause she’s got an early morning.
Gone are the classic Lindsay days where she’d be partying like there was no tomorrow. Of course, some of those days ended with her getting arrested, so this seems like a very adult, responsible change on LiLo’s part.
And, she’s right, Tuesday is a big day — her reality show ‘Beach Club’ premieres on MTV and someone’s gotta get out there to pimp it.
Early wake-up calls always suck but hey, could be worse, Linds. Ya could be laid up on a beach in Greece with an ankle brace.
Jared Leto‘s surrounded by a throng of bikini-clad women on a Caribbean island … and it’s pretty clear he’s the straw stirring the drink.
The “30 Seconds to Mars” frontman was cruising on a yacht Wednesday in St. Barts with a bunch of very eye-catching friends … including several women in bikinis and some ripped dudes. It’s in the 80s down there — like always — so they’re feasting on some Vitamin D.
Jared and co. came ashore to stroll the perfect white sand beach and snorkel in the crystal clear waters.
Vacay’s looking up for JL cause this sure beats the hell outta watching someone getting pummeled.
Aubrey O’Day rang in the New Year by getting kicked out of her own show … at a faux birthday party at a strip club in honor of her alleged ex, Donald Trump Jr.
Folks at Larry Flynt‘s Hustler Club in Las Vegas tell TMZ … Aubrey threw a fit Monday night when a bday cake was carted out for the Prez’s son after she finished her 3-song set.
We’re told she was pissed because she was asked to sing “Happy Birthday” to her former fling — which was allegedly not part of her contract — then one of her assistants got physical with a cocktail server.
We got video of the ex-Danity Kane member being escorted out after her performance, seemingly at the direction of one of the club’s managers who shouts at her to leave the building.
Drake‘s keeping his friends close and his frenemy’s family even closer … based on who showed up to his New Year’s Eve bash.
As you know … Kanye West went onthe attack last weekend and issued a very public rebuke of Drake on NYE for following his wife on Instagram, but that didn’t stop Kim‘s sisters from having a good time at Drizzy’s champagne party.
Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott all attended The Mod Selection New Year’s Party Monday night at Delilah in L.A. — hosted by Drake — despite the bad blood currently between him and Ye.
It’s possible the rappers’ relationship’s on the mend … Drake unfollowed Kim on IG just hours before midnight on NYE, so perhaps that was enough to smooth things over and allow Kanye’s kin to hang out with Drake without backlash.
Kanye even tweeted on New Year’s Day “I love Drake 2019 we will all heal.”
Tiffany Haddish made the best of a bad situation during her tough New Year’s Eve stand-up performance … so says a fellow seasoned comedian.
We got comic Alonzo Bodden — who won season 3 of “Last Comic Standing” — out at LAX Tuesday, where he had nothing but good things to say about the way Tiffany handled her show in Miami the night before.
Seeing how she was bombing … he says Tiff was wise to get in on the joke by cracking open a bottle of Ciroc and making a party of it. Alonzo tells us every comedian bombs, and her reaction was nothing short of classy and professional, considering the circumstances.
As we reported … a lot of people were walking out on Tiffany in the middle of her set. She vowed on stage to never allow herself to be in that type of situation again — and she wasn’t talking about stand-up either. Tiffany appeared to be exhausted from partying the night before.
She addressed the failed set on Twitter, saying she wished it was better.
Something tells us we’ll see her back on the mic soon enough.
