Infamous R&B star R Kelly has left the Chicago jail where he was being held after posting his $100,000 bail, according to a Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

The singer has been plagued by allegations of sexual assault, rape, child abuse, child pornography and aggravated criminal sexual abuse for decades.

Yesterday, the 52-year-old pleaded not guilty to 10 charges against four women, three of whom were minors at the time of alleged assault. He did not speak to media as he was escorted from jail by his lawyer.

The Ignition singer turned himself in to police on Friday and spent the weekend in a jail cell after denying all allegations against him over the last 30 years.

He has faced claims of sexual abuse for a long time, even appearing on trial in 2008 for child pornography charges but was acquitted. 

Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari confirmed on Monday night that R Kelly had raised the $100,000 bail, which was 10 percent of the $1 million bond set by a judge.

It is suspected that he struggled to raise the $100,000 necessary, and that a female "friend" had to assist him.

His court appearance and plea has arrived only weeks after Surviving R Kelly aired on Lifetime; an explosive documentary series about the allegations of continuous assault from dozens of women, including his former wife.

He is currently being tried for sexual assaults which apparently happened from 1998 onwards. He met one of the four women on her 16th birthday at a restaurant, and another 16-year-old when she asked for his autograph.

Robert Sylvester Kelly was ordered by the court to hand in his passport, and to have zero contact with anyone under the age of 18. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 22.

The well known high-profile women's rights attorney Gloria Allred claimed in a news conference yesterday that she is now representing over six women who allege that the singer abused them.

Love Island and Strictly Come Dancing stars have been left "shaken up" after leaving celebrity nightclub Tape just MINUTES before a triple stabbing.

Familiar faces such as Oti Mabuse, Katya Jones and Megan Barton Hanson were among those who narrowly missed the horrific attack in London’s Oxford Street in the early hours of Sunday.

It was Love Island alumni Ellie Brown's 21st birthday, which was why a host of reality TV celebrities were in attendance.

Strictly stars Oti Mabuse, Katya Jones and her husband Neil were there in order to celebrate Aljaz Skorjanec’s 28th birthday.

A Love Island source told The Sun: “They have been really shaken up and can’t help but think ‘what if’ had they left a bit later."

“Their night could have ended very differently if they had stayed at the nightclub. It has definitely prompted questions about security for some of the group.”

Oti, who is also a captain on BBC1’s The Greatest Dancer, brought Graziano Di Prima, Pasha Kovalev and Nadiya Bychkovaening to Tape following their dance performance that night.

Fellow captain Cheryl Tweedy went straight home after filming, but her dancer co-stars left Tape between 2am and 2.50am.

ITV2’s Love Island celebrities exited later, just a few minutes before the street stabbing took place at 3.40am. Laura Anderson left 15 minutes earlier while Megan Barton Hanson and Charlie Brake left at around 3.30am.

Love Island stars Zara McDermott and Ellie Brown, who celebrated her 21st birthday, exited the nightspot at roughly he same time.

Three men suffered stab and slash wounds in the chaotic attack; blood could be seen at the scene outside the pavement yesterday.

The Met Police said that all three 24-year-old men are now recovering in hospital, and their injuries are not lif-threatening. A spokesman added: “Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service.

“Two males have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon."

The statement continued,"They are currently in custody at central London police stations.”

The near-miss for the reality TV stars comes only two months after Strictly professional dancer AJ Pritchard and his dancer brother Curtis were beaten up by eight men at a Cheshire nightclub.

The ballroom dancer later hired personal security.


French police officials have arrested American rap singer Chris Brown following a rape accusation, AP has reported.

Closer initially reported that a 24-year-old woman alleged Brown raped her after meeting him in a nightclub on 15 January in France.

The same woman is also claiming that one of Brown's acquaintances abused her.

This isn't the first time the 29-year-old has been accused of sexual violence or violent crime.

The singer dated Rihanna back in 2009, and the pair were brought into the spotlight after an argument left the Umbrella singer covered in bruises and facial injuries as a result of Brown's rage.

Brown has spoken of the incident, claiming after he saw the image of her injured face that he, "felt like a f*cking monster".

Pitchfork also reported in 2017 that a woman claimed she was seriously sexually assaulted in the rapper's home, and sued him as a result of her trauma.

James Cromwell has been arrested again.

The Babe actor was arrested and sentenced to jail last month after he was found guilty for obstructing traffic during a protest against a gas-fired power plant being built in Wawayanda.

Last week, after a failed appeal, he spent seven days in jail.

And now it has emerged that the 77-year-old was arrested on Monday for his involvement in a protest at SeaWorld San Diego’s Orca Encounter.

James attended an Ocra show, holding a megaphone and wearing a t-shirt that read 'SeaWorld Sucks'.

In a video released by PETA, James can be seen protesting in the crowd. Several minute later, police rush in and can be seen arresting him along with a number of other protestors.

Speaking about the controversy, James said in a statement from PETA: "Orcas deserve a full life in the ocean, not a life sentence of swimming endless circles until they drop dead from disease.

"My friends at PETA and I want SeaWorld to move these intelligent animals to seaside sanctuaries without delay."

I think we all remember Fyre Festival.

It was the elite music festival in April that left people stranded on an island with barely any food or water.

The 'glamorous' accommodation turned out to be refuge tents in a field full of mud and the 'gourmet' meals ended up being dry bread with a slice of cheese.

Oh, and did we mention is cost €10,000?

"Thanks to the investigative efforts of the FBI, McFarland will now have to answer for his crimes."

The New York Times reports that the other co-founder, rapper Ja Rule (pictured above; far right), has not been arrested.



It's not looking good for Tyga at the moment.

While we're all still trying to figure out if he and Kylie Jenner are still together, the 27-year-old got in a bit of bother with the police.

The rapper was out in a club in LA last night, and was pulled over while driving his new Mercedes G-Series.

When asked by paparazzi why he was being arrested, Tyga said: "Because I have paper plates. I just bought it."

He was also holding stacks on cash in the pictures…



Last week, Pippa Middelton's iCloud was hacked with over 3000 photos taken from her personal accounts.

The photos included intimate snaps of her and her soon-to-be hubby James Matthews, as well as photos of her wedding dress for her impending nuptials.

But now, according to The Guardian, the princess's sister has been granted an injunction which will prevent any of the photos to be circulated.

Private photos of her fiance, her sister, and even Prince George and Princess Charlotte were offered to The Sun via an encrypted Whatsapp message. The hacker also asked for £50,000 within 48 hours.

The Sun alerted Pippa to the situation, to which her spokesperson said at the time: "Thank you very much for drawing this to the family's attention.

"I can confirm that not only have the lawyers been informed but the police are about to be involved as well."

According to the site, a 35-year-old man named Nathan Wyatt was arrested in connection to the breach. Scotland Yard confirmed that they made the arrest in Northamptonshire in the UK last Saturday.

Pippa's lawyer, Adam Wolanski, told the website: "There's no suggestion that these photos are in the public domain.

"The evidence points towards this being a flagrant and dishonest act that has caused the claimant considerable distress.

Nathan has now been released on bail and has been asked to return to a south-London police station in November for further enquiries.



It's Kylie's birthday week, and it's certainly full of surprises.

An LA judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Tyga, after he didn't show up to a hearing brought against him by his 2011 landlord.


When that deposit hit

A photo posted by Tyga / T-Raww (@kinggoldchains) on

The rapper was supposed to pay $480,000 to the landlord after he trashed the house five years ago (which also included fitting a pole into the master bedroom).

It seems he might be hiding out, and the Kardashians are NOT happy about it.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the reality family are afraid he'll be arrested in Kylie's company, which could damage their brand.



Farrah Franklin, the lesser known Destiny's Child singer was arrested during the week for public intoxication.

Farrah was a part of the girl group before they really became famous, and while being arrested, she allegedly told the police that she should have "downed" more alcohol, according to TMZ.

The site claims that the former singer got into an argument with a male friend around 3am on Thursday outside a gym and when the police turned up she said she was not ready to go home. 

They noticed she was clearly drunk, and when asked how much she had, Farrah replied: "Not enough."

She was then arrested for public intoxication and she was also in possession of a small amount of cannabis.

The bail was set at $250, but no one has bailed her out yet…
