R. Kelly Has Been Banned From Philadelphia

R. Kelly

Disgraced R&B star R Kelly has been symbolically banned from entering a major metropolitan US city in the wake of renewed focus on sexual abuse allegations against him.

Members of the Philadelphia City Council voted unanimously this week to let Robert S. Kelly know that he is not welcomed in the city, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The official resolution comes following the explosive six-part Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly”, which can now be streamed on TVNZ OnDemand.
“This resolution is about fundamentally stating a public declaration that R. Kelly and sexual predators like him don’t belong in a public sphere, with public support. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice,” Helen Gym, an at-large member of city council, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“We reject a system that silences Black women and accepts Black pain,” Gym wrote on Twitter.

“We believe survivors. R. Kelly is not welcome in Philadelphia. Today our resolution honoring the #MuteRKelly movement passed in @PHLCouncil. Philly stands with survivors.”

Gym told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the city council supported survivors of sexual abuse and sex trafficking.

Police are investigating the singer in the wake of the documentary.

“It’s about being clear that we will not accept a future where rape is accepted, and rapists and sexual predators get away with their acts,” she told the newspaper. “I believe that R. Kelly and predators like him should be shamed and banished from the public sphere.”

Legally, R. Kelly cannot be arrested or physically removed if enters the city but Gym said her resolution was meant to send a message to the singer that the city will not tolerate men like him in their city.

The #MuteRKelly campaign, which launched in Atlanta, and has become a national movement in the wake of the Lifetime docuseries.

During the six part documentary series, which aired in the United States on January 3, survivors share allegations on the years of sexual coercion, exploitation and physical abuse they endured at the hands of the Ignition – Remix singer.

Since airing in the United States, the US Police have launched an investigation into a number of allegations made against the singer.

R. Kelly was set for shows in Australia this year, before continuing to New Zealand for one show in Auckland, but promoters cancelled the dates after a public outcry against the singer.

Maroon 5’s smash hit featuring Cardi B, “Girls Like You,” caught a lot of attention for its cameo-filled nature, featuring the likes of Camila Cabello, Ellen DeGeneres, Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, Behati Prinsloo and more.

Not only did the song skyrocket in popularity (reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100), so did the video. In less than 10 months, the music video surpassed 2 billion YouTube views.

“I have two young daughters, and to think about them being mistreated at all — ever — made my blood boil,” Adam Levine recently told Variety of the tune. “So we went for it because I felt that as long as I stayed close to my heart with this concept, I could never go wrong. … In the video, I was doing it for my kids and my wife. If anyone doesn’t understand the intentions, f— ’em.”

The band took to Facebook to thank everyone for watching. See the announcement, including the music video, above.

“Worthless Man, Imbecile” : Tonto Dikeh Throws Shade At Her Ex-Husband

Published

Tonto Dikeh’s has thrown shade at whom many believe is her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni.

She took to Instagram yesterday to write different cryptic posts which included the statement “A Tonto Dikeh’s has thrown shade at whom many believe is her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni.

She took to Instagram yesterday to write different cryptic posts which included the statement “A worthless man is always a worthless man”.

This comes after he granted an interview, debunking her claims that he squatted with her when they started dating.

He said;

You mean squatting? This is ridiculous. Before I met the Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, I was already one of the most successful young millionaires in Africa.

I met her at a nightclub, during my brother’s birthday party in 2014 and it was about the same time I acquired the latest Benz cars. Three months after we met, she got pregnant.

I have never really stayed in Nigeria for too long, because I do business in Ghana, although I have an office at Ikoyi. She visited me in Ghana several times and when she broke the news of her pregnancy three months into the relationship, I decided to visit her in Nigeria. I had to visit her often, because she was carrying my child.

I have never squatted or lived with her and the only time we stayed together was after the birth of my son, which came with the approval of her parents, after I had completely satisfied the traditional requirements for her dowry.

I flew her to the United States to deliver my child in one of the best hospitals in America.

She stayed at my family house in London few months after delivery, before she returned to Nigeria. On her arrival, I had already prepared a well-furnished exquisite apartment for us – this was the first and only times we lived together until the divorce. We only lived together for six months.

Still on the issue of squatting, it will interest you to know that Tonto will never marry or date a man who lacks prospects or is unsuccessful. She likes to live the life. We broke up in 2016 at a house I newly acquired for my mother in Lekki, Lagos State.
Our marriage was plagued with several frivolous claims of falsity, ranging from domestic violence to false allegations and all what not. I never laid my hands on her. I have never done that in my life before. She made up those things to discredit my philanthropic works. I am from a proper disciplined Yoruba home.
