Illinois Prosecutors Reportedly Preparing to Indict R. Kelly Over Another Tape
Chicago prosecutors are investigating a VHS tape of what appears to be, according to lawyer Michael Avenatti, singer R. Kelly raping a girl.
“My client knows the identity of the girl and R. Kelly,” Avenatti, who previously represented Stormy Daniels, told CNN. “He identified the two of them on the videotape. He worked for and has known R. Kelly for decades and he met the girl on a number of occasions. Avenatti turned the tape over to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Chicago last weekend, CNN reports.
Ellen Page Calls Out Chris Pratt for Attending ‘Infamously Anti-LGBTQ’ Church
Ellen Page on Thursday criticized Chris Pratt for attending a “infamously anti-LGBTQ” church after he appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and discussed his religious side.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star sat down with Colbert to promote “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” and Pratt said he just finished a 21-day Daniel Fast that he took part in through his church and that his pastor encouraged. He also said the pastor shared with him words of wisdom about balancing fame and his inner self.
“If the spotlight that is shining on you is brighter than the light that’s within you, it will kill you,” Pratt recounted to Colbert.
Page tweeted about the appearance and the pastor shortly after, writing, “Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?”
Ellen Page just thrashed Chris Pratt on Twitter & she has a good point
Woman Live-Streams Alleged Sex Assault on Nightclub Dance Floor, Leading to Arrest of Suspect
A 34-year-old Georgia man was charged Tuesday with the alleged sexual assault of a woman on an Atlanta nightclub’s dance floor that was streamed by the alleged victim on Facebook Live.
Dominique Williams is being held without bond, charged with one count of aggravated sodomy, an Atlanta police spokeswoman confirms to PEOPLE.
It was unclear Thursday if he’d pleaded to the charge, and online records do not indicate if he has retained an attorney who could speak to the allegations against him.
An incident report obtained by PEOPLE indicates investigators were alerted to a possible sexual assault at the Opera nightclub in Atlanta on Jan. 20. Several individuals connected to the alleged victim on Facebook called 911 as the alleged assault was taking place.
It’s time for a #MeToo moment in hip hop
In the weeks following the horrific revelations made in Lifetime’s bombshell six-part docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly,” the fallout has been immense.
The 52-year-old R&B superstar, accused of alleged sexual and physical abuse with underage girls spanning nearly three decades, has parted ways with Sony Music Entertainment and its subsidiary RCA Records, following protests over his conduct.
But while a day of reckoning seems to be finally at hand for Kelly, the hip-hop and R&B world has yet to truly have the #MeToo moment that has rocked Hollywood, professional sports, the video-game industry and the journalism biz.
Rapper Kodak Black is awaiting trial this April for allegedly pinning down, biting and raping a woman in a South Carolina hotel. But despite such serious allegations, the tattooed 21-year-old “Tunnel Vision” hit-maker is still treated like an A-lister.
Chris Pratt attends an anti-gay church with a history of child molestation and ex-gay therapy
Pratt attends Hillsong Church, the same church as pop-star Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner. But Hillsong has a history of child sexual abuse and supporting so-called conversion therapy.
The megachurch began in Australia and has since spawned outposts across the world, including New York City. New York City’s Hillsong Church is led by Carl Lentz. In a 2015 GQ interview, Lentz said he considers homosexuality a sin and would never allow an openly gay member to hold a church leadership position.
In August 2015, when the New York City church learned that two of its male choir members were married, it released a public statement against them.
