R. Kelly In New Child Pornography Case Again

Federal Prosecutors Arrest And Charge R. Kelly In New Child Pornography Case

R. Kelly In New Child Pornography Case Again

Robert Sylvester Kelly is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player. He is credited for helping redefine R&B and hip hop, earning the nicknames "King of R&B" and "King of Pop-Soul".

Kelly, who already faces separate sexual assault charges in state court, will now be confronting two possible criminal trials following his Thursday night arrest by federal authorities.

For decades, Kelly has been dogged by accusations over sexual contact with minors and child pornography allegations. He was prosecuted by state authorities in a child pornography case before, but in June 2008, Kelly was acquitted of all charges, allowing him to walk a free man.

Kelly's arrest by agents Thursday night represents the first time the singer has faced federal charges.

A law enforcement official tells The New York Times that investigators plan to bring Kelly to New York to face charges. Federal prosecutors told the paper that prosecutors in Brooklyn will detail those plans on Friday.

In recent months, fresh interest has been generated around the longtime accusations against Kelly.

Some recent news about the singer so far:

R Kelly’s lawyers have requested the singer’s ex-wife Andrea be jailed and fined for ‘breaking a confidentiality agreement’ against him.


R Kelly’s lawyers have requested the singer’s ex-wife Andrea be jailed and fined for ‘breaking a confidentiality agreement’ against him.

In court documents filed Tuesday (2 July), Kelly’s lawyers have claimed that speaking out against the star was in breach of the agreement she signed amid their divorce battle in 2009. According to the papers, acquired by Chicago Sun Times, part of the agreement was that they were to not criticise each other in public, and his lawyers argue that not only has Andrea done that, but she’s earned a profit in the process.

Kelly, 52, has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal abuse, as well as 11 additional charges of sexual assault, all of which he has pleaded not guilty to. His arrest came after the broadcast of Surviving R Kelly, a Lifetime documentary which explored the allegations of sexual and physical abuse made against the R’n’B singer by a string of women. And Keke, who counted the Ignition singer as a friend as well as working with him throughout his career, admitted that watching the documentary confused her, as she seen a different side to Kelly. The Scream Queens actress was on Watch What Happens Live when a caller asked: ‘What is the most eye-opening part of watching Surviving R Kelly for you?’

The 25-year-old said: ‘Oh, man. I don’t even know what to say. The whole thing – the whole thing was eye-opening, painful, sad, disappointing, heartbreaking.’

Man Gets His Racist Tattoos Removed After Becoming A Dad

Bryon Widner by name, became a skinhead at the age of 14, and he spent 16 years involved with racist organizations in the midwest. He earned the nickname of “pit bull”, and went on to co-found Vinlanders Social Club, a white power group in Indiana.

Vinlanders soon gained a reputation for excessive violence and became one of the fastest-growing racist skinhead organizations in the US.

In 2005, Widner married Julie Larsen and a year later, the couple had a son. The responsibilities of fatherhood gave Widner the desire to reform and leave the racist movement, a desire shared by his new wife.

Widner took the decision to leave the neo-nazi group, but it took years of death threats and harassment before he felt that he was finally becoming “human again.”

Widner’s attempts to become part of regular society were understandably made more difficult by his many facial tattoos, which were both intimidating and openly racist. His wife Julie was afraid that he would do something extreme to erase hi…

Man Stops Drinking Alcohol, Narrates How Much Sobriety Changed Him In 3 Years

Giving up your vices and guilty pleasures can lead to a happier and healthier life that’s full of purpose. Even though you might not see the changes day-to-day when you give up drinking alcohol, they’re very apparent to others. One of the things that can keep you motivated is documenting the changes and looking at the photos side by side.

Well, one man has made the phrase ‘one day at a time’ fit both his fight with alcoholism and documenting his journey through sobriety. These last three years, Kenny D. has taken snaps of how he looked when he quit alcohol at key stages in his journey of sobriety. The changes within the first month are already huge and he is almost unrecognizable in the final pictures.

Kenny went sober three years ago. When he took his first photo, he was feeling awful.

“I took a picture of myself the day I got my first sobriety coin, 24 hours sober. I felt so ill and I looked so bad, I wanted to remember it so I wouldn’t forget. The day I got my 30-day coin, I though…

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA a question asked by a Quora Community User: The question goes like this:

"If USA is wealthier than Canada, why does Canada feel more developed (far cleaner cities, a lot less crime, fewer homeless people, significantly higher life expectancy)?"

Kelly Meilleur Has the best answer:

Dual citizen here (CDN/USA).

I will try to explain Canada.

There is an entirely different sense of right and wrong in Canada. Canadians are democratic. (Not just a democracy; there’s a difference.)

That means they are happy to pay taxes - big taxes - so that they have the resources they need in their neighbourhoods. They don’t need to earn big money to be able to afford a house in a good school district or private school tuition in order to ensure a good k-12 foundation for their kids.

Their children do not need to take on hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt for an undergraduate or professional degree at a good school. Some Americans think that th…
