Kodak Black Claims He Handed Sticky Fingaz Of Onyx The Fade

Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - February 11, 2019

Kodak Black has a penchant for the outlandish statement, and the young Florida rapper once again proved that point in a recent video. Taking to Instagram Live, Kodak claims he punched Sticky Fingaz of Onyx fame in the face and discovered the veteran rapper was allegedly walking around with a fake gun.

In the video clip, Kodak is seen talking to fans about the alleged incident although he doesn’t say where or when it happened. What is clear is that Kodak was clearly agitated by Sticky’s presence.

“I ain’t like his old head energy, ’cause I don’t really like older people like that,” Kodak shared. “I’m a ’90s baby. I don’t got no respect for y’all. So, this n*gga he was on my bus, like…I ain’t never say this, but tonight I’m gonna say it. This f*ck n*gga, he was playing crazy on my bus, and I ain’t like that. I ain’t even know why my cousin let this f*ck n*gga or where he met this n*gga at.”

Kodak goes on to explain that he punched Sticky and then rummaged through the rapper’s bag in where he discovered the alleged fake firearm. Quite a wild story, if true.

Check out the video of Kodak Black claiming he gave Sticky Fingaz the fade in the clip below.

R. Kelly Denies Sleeping With Aaliyah’s Mother, According To Sources

R. Kelly back in court in fight over child support payments

Of the several allegations faced by R. Kelly, one of the more explosive charges came by way of one of his accusers, Lisa Van Allen. Van Allen claims that the troubled R&B singer slept with the mother of late entertainer Aaliyah, although Kelly is denying doing so via sources.

TMZ reports:

Lisa Van Allen — who accused Kelly of abuse in “Surviving R. Kelly” — said Kelly told her he and Aaliyah’s mom, Diane Haughton, had several sexual encounters. Van Allen claims Kelly stayed at Aaliyah’s home in Detroit in the ’90s and after she’d fall asleep, he’d wander into the living room and perform various sexual acts on the couch with her mom.

Sources close to R. Kelly say he absolutely denies he and Diane had anything but a friendly relationship. We’re told Kelly believes the only reason Van Allen made those claims in the Vlad TV interview is to further smear his name and grab headlines for herself.

Ms. Haughton has also denied having any sexual relationship with Kelly in an Instagram post near the top of the year.

Kelly has bigger fish to fry as he is facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The singer is due in court on March 22.

Sen. Cory Booker and actress Rosario Dawson have been romantically linked for weeks now, but neither of them pushed to announce the union. However, Dawson finally let the cat out the bag and says she’s officially dating the presidential hopeful.

TMZ reports:

The actress was at the Reagan National Airport in D.C. Thursday when our guy quizzed her on what’s been widely rumored — she’s the woman Booker referred to last month on the Breakfast Club when he said he was dating someone very special, while adding, “I got a boo.”

It didn’t take much prodding before Dawson said it was true and began gushing over her man, calling him an amazing human being and saying their relationship is a wonderful thing.

She continued … “I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much,” and added several more doting words to describe the presidential hopeful.

Speaking of that … Rosario says Cory would be an amazing Prez, and she’s pushing him with a campaign button.

Dawson wasn’t ready to share whether or not she and Booker would be tying the know any time soon.

Joycelyn Savage Told Friends R. Kelly Sexually Assaulted Her, Allegedly

R. Kelly Bond Hearing Held In Sexual Assault Case

Source: Scott Olson / Getty

Joycelyn Savage allegedly confided in friends that her boyfriend and mentor R. Kelly sexually assaulted and told these details to the authorities. Savage met with Kelly in 2015 in Oklahoma where the alleged attack occurred.

The Blast reports:

Sources very close to the ongoing federal investigation into R. Kelly tell The Blast Joycelyn Savage was flown out to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a meeting with Kelly in 2015.

She was an adult at the time, but was an aspiring singer and was offered a chance to perform for the R&B star during a private meetup. We’re told Kelly’s ex-employee, Cheryl Mack, arranged the flight for Savage out to Oklahoma on the singer’s dime.

We’re told once in Oklahoma, Joycelyn met with Kelly in a hotel room and sang for him. She was also told to disrobe down to her underwear and walk around the room for Kelly, who eventually made a move on the girl.

We’re told Savage later confided in at least two friends, including her voice coach and the woman’s son, that Kelly forced her onto the bed and sexually assaulted her, but she did not want to go to the authorities about the situation.

The outlet adds the vocal coach and son went to Savage’s family about the attack who attempted to bring Savage home but she elected to remain with Kelly.

Judge Puts Kibosh On R. Kelly’s Request To Reduce Child Support Payments

R. Kelly back in court in fight over child support payments

Source: Chicago Tribune / Getty

R. Kelly was recently released from jail, this after friends and family took care of a past due child support bill. However, an attempt to have his child support payments reduced was unsuccessful despite his lawyer’s claims that Kelly doesn’t have means to pay.

CBS Chicago reports:

Kelly spent three nights in Cook County Jail last week, after failing to comply with a court order to pay more than $161,000 in overdue child support. He was released on Saturday after friends and family paid the money for him, and on Wednesday he sought to have those $21,000 monthly child support payments reduced, because he is not working.

“If you can’t play a show, if you can’t go out on tour, if they’re not streaming your music anymore, obviously you’re going to have financial problems. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure that out,” attorney Steve Greenberg said.

Kelly’s publicist, Darryll Johnson, said Kelly has no assets to sell, not even his home at Trump Tower, because he rents the condo, and paid rent in advance several years ago. Johnson said he and Kelly’s attorneys are representing him for free.

Wednesday’s hearing on the child support payments was sealed to the public, but Kelly’s attorneys confirmed afterward that there would be no change in those payments, and the next hearing has been scheduled for May 8.

The outlet added in its reporting that Kelly is recording new music.

Joycelyn Savage’s Family Believes R. Kelly Coached Her To Lie To Cops

R. Kelly Bond Hearing Held In Sexual Assault Case

Source: Scott Olson / Getty

The family of Joycelyn Savage is convinced that R. Kelly has some manner of control over her, to the point they say the R&B singer has coached her up to lie to the cops. The family has handed over evidence of this to the police after authorities traveled to Atlanta to collect the information.

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation tell TMZ … federal investigators in New York involved in the R. Kelly sex trafficking probe flew to Atlanta last week to meet with the Savage family … and received a treasure trove of digital evidence.

We’re told the Savages had lots of digital records that they say display shady tactics from both R. Kelly and folks who were working for him, including a woman named Cheryl Mack … an ex-assistant who allegedly facilitated a meeting between Joycelyn and R. Kelly early on.

According to our sources, the records show Mack had arranged for Joycelyn to fly to Palm Springs to see R. Kelly in 2015. We’re told that meeting led to Joycelyn dropping everything and moving in with him, without her parents’ knowledge.

For the record, Joycelyn was 19 at the time this happened. She has been living with him since then.

The outlet adds that the family has emails and recordings of Kelly instructing Savage to conceal the true nature of their relationship should investigators come sniffing around.

Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary sat down with Gayle King in the recent CBS News interview featuring R. Kelly, with both women saying they’re operating on their own accord.

Beyoncé Embroiled In Blue Ivy Trademark Fight With Wedding Planner

60th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

Source: Christopher Polk / Getty

Beyoncé is still in the middle of an odd legal tussle regarding the use of her daughter Blue Ivy‘s name by a wedding planner who believes she has rights to do so. The Houston singer is refusing to hand over documents and private texts between her husband Jay-Z and mother Tina Lawson that the wedding planner believe would help her case.

The Blast reports:

According to documents obtained by The Blast, Veronica Morales has requested a list of documents and communications from Beyoncé in their trademark battle.

Morales wants Beyoncé to turn over all documents showing any evidence she planned to actually use the trademark “Blue Ivy” (since Morales doesn’t believe the singer ever planned to use it) and any samples of her intent to use the name.

Morales is also seeking all communications with Jay-Z relating to their 2016 trademark application, any communications of her or Jay-Z knowing about “Blue Ivy” before their daughter was born in February 2012, and any records of convos with Bey and her mother about the mark.

Beyoncé has thus far refused to hand over the documents and is demanding a protective order be entered which would prohibit Morales or her legal team from leaking the confidential information.

In 2017, the Carters trademarked their eldest daughter’s name not to use it for product placements but to prevent instances like the one Morales is attempting.

Mother Of Alleged YNW Melly Murder Victim Blasts Rapper, Considered Him Family

YNW Melly Police Booking Photo

Source: Handout / Getty

The mother of one of YNW Melly‘s alleged murder victims is calling out the rapper after he and another suspect in the case entered not guilty pleas. Jana Thompson said that her son was close to the Florida rapper, who she says that she treated like a family member.


TMZ
reports:

Jana Thompson tells TMZ … her son, Anthony Williams, loved YNW and the other suspect, Cortlen Henry, like brothers. She says, “We opened up our homes & our hearts to them.”

Anthony is one of 2 men YNW and Henry allegedly killed … and Jana is, understandably, shell-shocked. She says the fact that they entered not guilty pleas “feels like another stab in the heart to myself & my family.”

Jana adds, “It’s inconceivable that these very people are the ones responsible for this horrifying murder. I will not stand idle and will fight vehemently for justice!”

YNW has a neck tattoo that reads “Jana” … it’s crystal clear in his mug shot. We’re told it’s a tribute to Mrs. Thompson and shows just how close he was to Anthony and his mother.

Ms. Thompson has retained the services of a law firm and may file a civil lawsuit against Melly and Henry. Both men are facing first-degree murder charges.

Raz B Almost Left Millennium Tour Because Of Chris Stokes, Twitter Reacts #RazB

Los Angeles Premiere Of HBO's Documentary Film 'United Skates' - Arrivals

Source: Gregg DeGuire / Getty

The Millenium Tour, featuring B2K, Pretty Ricky, and Lloyd, hasn’t even been going on for a week and B2K member Raz B announced that he’s leaving the tour. According to the singer, he says that former manager and cousin Chris Stokes’ presence around the tour makes him uneasy, this after he accused the mogul of sexually abusing him and others in 2007, but it appears Raz B is going to continue on the road.

In a video clip shared by The Shade Room, Raz B speaks to his fans and says that because of Stokes that he doesn’t “feel safe” and made a plea to his B2K bandmate Omarion that he’s willing to have a conversation about staying on board but seems committed to leaving.

“Raz B is officially off the tour. I don’t feel safe because I feel like Chris Stokes is around. So guess what? I’m off the tour. Good luck to everybody,” Raz B says.
