R. Kelly‘s ex-wife says the stories on “Surviving R. Kelly” rang true to her because of what she says she went through with the singer — including alleged abuse in all forms.
Andrea Kelly went on “Good Morning Britain” after appearing on Lifetime’s docuseries, and she told hosts Piers Morgan and Susana Reid that R. Kelly abused her verbally, emotionally, physically, sexually … and, as of late she claims, financially as well by cutting off child support.
Morgan asks her point blank if she believes the women and believes he’s a serial abuser — to which Andrea says she believes R. Kelly is an abuser … but refuses to either confirm or deny the women’s claims as she didn’t experience them herself.
The ‘GMB’ hosts also ask R. Kelly’s daughter, Joann, how she feels about her dad … and she says she’s torn because there’s still love there on her end.
Definitely a more toned down take than when she called him a “monster” on social media, but it’s clear the family is going through a hard time in the midst of the scandal.
David Arquette is a glutton for punishment … returning to the wrestling ring after a deathmatch that almost killed him.
Arquette took the mic at a news conference Friday night to hype his upcoming match with veteran pro wrestler Jocephus in a “hair match” for the National Wrestling Alliance. The stakes … loser shaves his head.
NWA President and former Smashing Pumpkins frontman, Billy Corgan, kept the 2 men apart during the faceoff at the Pinnacle Family Entertainment Center in Clarksville, Tennessee.
Jocephus stormed the stage with a VHS copy of Arquette’s 2000 pro wrestling movie “Ready to Rumble” … mocking him as an actor and had no business trying to measure up in the ring.
As we previously showed you, poor David was a bloody, mangled mess last November after getting smashed in the head with a light tube.
The Arquette/Jocephus hair match goes down tonight. At least this time around, the consequences for the 47-year-old Arquette will not be as grave, unless of course the clippers haven’t been sharpened.
Jen Harley‘s convinced Ronnie Ortiz-Magro ransacked her home this week because there’s video proof he destroyed her security camera a month ago during another violent incident no one knew about.
TMZ obtained this Dec. 4 Ring security footage showing Ronnie hauling back and smashing the camera at the front door of Jen’s Las Vegas home. Law enforcement sources tell us the “Jersey Shore” star showed up around 10 PM that night and also threw an object through a window when she refused to let him inside. We’re told she filed a police report, and Ron is a suspect for destruction of property.
The incident is highly relevant, considering Jen says someone broke into her house and trashed it on New Year’s Eve after she and Ron got into a fight at a Vegas nightclub. Sources connected to Jen tell us these pics show the utter destruction that was left behind.
As you can see, someone went to town inside Jen’s home. The entire place looks like a complete mess … there’s a huge hole in a wall, shattered glass everywhere, toppled furniture, destroyed artwork, overturned tables, broken kitchenware, and a smashed flat-screen TV.
Kanye West is making it quite clear to kick off the new year — he’s still on the Trump train heading into 2019.
Ye went on another Twitter rant Tuesday proclaiming his unwavering devotion to President Trump, saying … “Trump all day.” He continued by saying, “Just so in 2019 you know where I stand.”
The political line of logic continued with Kanye saying, “They will not program me,” and adding, “Blacks are 90% Democrats That sounds like control to me.”
He followed up by saying, “Love everyone,” and “We will change the world. God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us.” It should be noted … Kanye is currently retweeting love and support being sent to him at an alarmingly rapid pace.
Elon Musk‘s a visionary with HUGE balls … and that’s why a celeb jeweler’s giving the billionaire this INSANE diamond Tesla ring.
We’re told celeb jeweler Ben Baller designed and made this one-of-a-kind ring worth nearly $ 40k. It’s truly unique … it’s 1 of 1 and custom made for the famous entrepreneur. The ring’s a marvel — it’s solid platinum with custom cut diamond baguettes to spell out T-E-S-L-A.
Ben says the Tesla and SpaceX honcho is an inspiration when it comes to pushing the limits. “We salute you for giving almost 50,000 jobs to Americans and putting USA back on the map as a serious contender in the auto industry.” He adds, “The last successful US car company startup before Tesla was Chrysler and that was 90 years ago.”
As for Elon’s new bling — it features a rare, trillion-cut diamond to emphasize the “T” logo, which is surrounded by round, brilliant white diamonds. Ben says the ring was made in America, just like Elon’s wares.
If it sounds like Ben’s a superfan … he is. He drives a Model X P100D.
He’s impressed Musk kept pushing forward — even after his PayPal success — and “bet it all on Tesla and that takes BIG balls.”
We’re told Elon will get his gift sometime next week.
If Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t have plans to celebrate his 41st birthday on NYE, a Vegas strip club is willing to throw him a party … hosted by none other than his alleged ex, Aubrey O’Day.
Larry Flynt‘s Hustler Club in Sin City is extending an invitation to DTJ to ring in the big 4-1 later this month in the company of his alleged one-time mistress — who strongly implied, one way or another, they hooked up in 2011 while she was a cast member on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
The ex-Danity Kane member is set to perform 3 songs at the shindig, and even share face time with certain guests. That could be Trump Jr. … if his heart desires! Although, we’re pretty sure his current GF, Kimberly Guilfoyle, ain’t gonna be down for this.
The club’s GM actually went through Jr.’s dad … sending a letter to Prez Trump, cordially inviting both him and his boy to party. He wrote, “You and your family have done so much for this country that we at the Hustler Organization want to show our appreciation by throwing [DTJ] a birthday he will never forget.”
Sure, flattery will get ya everywhere with 45, but clearly this whole thing is a total troll.
Aubrey’s famously pissed at DTJ for blowing her off — and Larry Flynt famously hates the Prez. He offered $ 10 mil for any dirt to get him impeached.
Anyway, Aubrey’s performing … with or without the Trumps’ presence.
Paris Hilton‘s got some bad news for her ex … the MASSIVE engagement ring Chris Zylka got her is staying with her, so she says, but the law is not on her side.
Paris appeared on SiriusXM’s “The Jenny McCarthy Show” and dropped some tea on the $ 2 MILLION bling ring. She says, for reason, the jeweler received millions of dollars in free publicity … and then went on to declare the ring stays with her.
Here’s the problem … whether the jeweler received free publicity or not is totally irrelevant. Chris is the one who bought the ring, at least that’s the party line. Under CA law, if Paris called off the engagement — which she did — Chris has a right to get it back. It’s called a gift in contemplation of marriage.
There is a wild card … if the party line is not true — in other words, if Chris didn’t buy the ring and the jeweler fronted it to Paris — then he has no right to the ring. But, that’s not the way this whole thing was spun. There is one other scenario … maybe Chris is willing to eat the money and he’s never demanded the ring back.
BTW … the ring’s a doozy … it’s a massive 20-carat diamond, which took about 4 months to cut.
