R. Kelly Arrested for Unpaid Child Support

Source: Handout / Getty

R. Kelly is out here doing R. Kelly things, for a check. The accused sexual predator is asking the media to “take it easy” on him with his upcoming paid gig.

“Yo, this is your boy Kells and I got an event to do tonight in Springfield, Illinois, so I want the media to take it easy on me, man,” said R’uh, on Instagram.

Yes, that bammas said “Springfields,” like, plural.

And by his description it wasn’t even a singing event, it was a club appearance.

He added, “This is how I got to get paid for right now. So if you see me in the club, with a couple of drinks in my hand, and chilling, please, take it easy.”

Did he take it easy on all those alleged victims? Exactly.

R. Kelly has had numerous financial issues—he had to have someone else post his bail, is behind on child support, amongst other struggle.

LACONIA, NH—Promising that it would only take a second, Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham reportedly asked a nearby family Friday if they could take his picture for a photo op at a local fall harvest festival. “Would you folks mind getting a picture of me in front of these corn stalks?” said Graham, who reportedly had his request politely declined by several individuals before eventually finding a group of fairgoers who agreed to use the senator’s cell phone to take the photo he would post on his campaign website and distribute to the media. “Once you can see me on the screen, just push the button. Oh, hold on, let me turn the flash off. Actually, it might be good to take a couple shots just in case I wasn’t smiling or I blinked.

Jay Z Asks Judge To Ignore His Riches & Rap Sheet In “Big Pimpin” Lawsuit

The long-delayed “Big Pimpin” lawsuit is finally set to be underway and defendant Jay Z is taking no chances when it boils down to coming out-of-pocket (more than he’s supposed to).

TMZ is reporting that the megastar rapper born Shawn Carter is asking a judge to disallow the future jury from glancing into his finances and his criminal history in order to have their opinions being swayed as the case develops.

To backtrack for those not in the know, the sampled foundation behind Jay Z and Timbaland’s 1999 smash hit was a 1960s Egyptian song titled “Khosara Khosara,” and the artist’s heir, Abdel Halim Hafez, is claiming the Hip-Hop pair not only infringed on the copyright of the record, but lyrically used it in a demeaning way. The case has been eight years in the making and will finally go to court in October, where Jay Z is expected to testify.

Carter, easily one of the most successful–commercially and financially–Hip-Hop artists to ever grace a mic, values at net worth of $ 550 million according to a very recent Forbes report. Allowing a prosecutor to paint the picture that he got rich stealing from unknown artists would spell a certain doom for the case. On the contrary, the plaintiff is claiming that since Jay Z “stole” the “Big Pimpin” sample, his criminal past is very much on the table here.

We’re guessing an out-of-court settlement is also out?

Dame Dash Asks Judge To Toss Loisaidas Lawsuit

Damon Dash isn’t letting the recent Loisaidas movie lawsuit go away without a fight. Dash and Kanye West were swept up in a lawsuit filed earlier this year, and this month the entrepreneur asked the judge in the case to throw out the case over the use of the Loisaidas name for the film.

The term “Loisaidas,” a slang term for the Lower East Side of Manhattan, is also the name of a band fronted by Michael Medina, who trademarked the name. Medina filed suit again tWest and Dash, who serve as executive producers for the movie, last spring. Dash countered Medina’s legal jab on Aug. 4, and he’s saying that Medina cannot claim the name as his own.

More from an exclusive Bossip report:

Dash asked a judge Aug. 4 to throw out musician Michael Medina’s case against him, which claims Dash used the term “Loisaidas” as his film title even though Medina’s group trademarked the name. Medina’s suit, which was filed in April in New York federal court, alleges Dash’s violent “Loisaidas” movie defiled Medina’s Latin music group of the same name, and has confused fans.

But Dash said his decision to use “Loisaidas” was protected by the First Amendment. Dash also said “Loisaidas” – a Spanish slang term for people from the Lower East Side of Manhattan – can’t be owned by anyone because it’s a common word.

“Plaintiff cannot commandeer and monopolize a term that, as Plaintiff admits, is a common part of local “Spanglish” vernacular and prevent others from using that term,” Dash’s lawyer’s said in his answer to Medina’s suit. “In particular, “Loisaidas” has been used for over 40 years to identify residents who live in the Lower East Side…”

Dash also wants Medina to pay his legal fees connected to the ordeal.

California Attorney General Asks For Permission To Throw Out ‘Shoot The Gays’ Initiative

California Attorney General Kamala Harris is asking for permission to toss out the now-notorious Sodomite Suppression Act, an outrageous ballot proposition that calls for the execution of gays with “bullets to the head” as well as 10 years in prison and permanent expulsion from California for anyone who advocates gay rights to minors.

In a statement released Wednesday, she wrote:

As Attorney General of California, it is my sworn duty to uphold the California and United States Constitutions and to protect the rights of all Californians. This proposal not only threatens public safety, it is patently unconstitutional, utterly reprehensible, and has no place in a civil society. Today, I am filing an action for declaratory relief with the Court seeking judicial authorization for relief from the duty to prepare and issue the title and summary for the “Sodomite Suppression Act.” If the Court does not grant this relief, my office will be forced to issue a title and summary for a proposal that seeks to legalize discrimination and vigilantism.

Because the bill’s backer, attorney Matt McLaughlin, paid the $ 200 filing fee by the February deadline, Harris is bound by law to prepare a title and summary of the order so that he can begin circulating it to obtain the 365,000 valid signatures needed for it to appear on next year’s ballot.

Some say the incident has exposed a serious flaw in the legal system. Joe Mathews, a fellow at the Center for Social Cohesion at Arizona State University, argued on California politics website Fox&Hounds that such instances attack the integrity of the ballot initiative process and that the attorney general should be allowed to invoke a “human rights exception.”

On Monday, activist Charlotte Laws shed more light on the absurdity that McLaughlin’s initiative would be circulated when she submitted the Intolerant Jackass Act to the state attorney general’s office, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Her initiative, which she says she does not intend to circulate, would label the author of any ballot measures like McLaughlin’s an “intolerant jackass,” require them to attend at least three hours a month of sensitivity training for a year and demand they contribute $ 5,000 to an organization that supports gay rights.

Lena Dunham Asks Why People Use Birth Control, World Learns Critical Lesson

As the White House took steps to accommodate religious nonprofits wanting to opt out of contraception coverage, HBO’s “Girls” creator Lena Dunham took to Twitter Tuesday evening with a simple question:

The Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling last month dealt a major blow to birth control coverage. At the time, Dunham tweeted her stance that “Women’s access to birth control should not be denied because of their employer’s religious beliefs.” Last week, Eden Foods’ CEO revived a case to deny coverage of all birth control from employees’ healthcare plans.

Within minutes of Dunham’s tweet, both women and men were sharing the many reasons, from health concerns to family planning, that birth control is important to them:

Dunham concluded by thanking the “brave women and sensitive men” and encouraging readers to follow the Planned Parenthood Action Fund to learn more. And then, in typical quirky Dunham fashion, she added:
