R. Kelly Sued by Texas Concert Promoter for Not Showing Up

r. kelly

*A Dallas area promoter is NOT happy with R. Kelly.

It seems the promoter is pissed at Kelly for pulling out of an upcoming show, and stiffing the guy on a nice size deposit. That means R. Kelly is now the recipient of big ol’ lawsuit.

According to TMZ, Darryl Austin says he hand delivered a $100k deposit to Kelly’s team in January for him to headline an April concert in Dallas.

According to the docs … when February rolled around R. Kelly’s rep played dumb and claimed to know nothing about the show.

Austin says the real insult came when the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B returned the deposit … $30,000 SHORT!!

Austin wants the court to either force Kelly to do the show … or pay back the dough.

Terrence Howard’s Ex-Wife Eyeing His ‘Empire’ Income

michelle ghent & terrence howard

*If you’re familiar with Terrence Howard‘s ongoing battle with ex-wife Michelle Ghent, you probably won’t be the least surprised to find out she’s targeting his “Empire” salary.

Ghent is reportedly already receiving close to $6k a month from the actor, but according to new documents, that could change for the better for her because of Howard’s huge success on “Empire.” According to TMZ, here’s why:

The deal is Michelle gets 21% of anything Terrence made over $62,500 in the first 3 months of this year. As we previously reported … Michelle says Terrence pulls in $125k per episode — and sources tell us 3 episodes were shot this year.

We did the math, and he needs to cut her a check for about $65k. That’s just from his “Empire” money. Remember, Terrence has another show — “Wayward Pines” — debuting on FOX this year … so she’ll get some chunk of that.

Interestingly, even though their 2013 divorce  was super nasty, we kinda think – given his new found success – she’s  suddenly become his biggest fan.

*Apparently not everybody is down with going in on Bruce Jenner. At least not yet. Jamie Foxx found that out because of a ‘transphobic‘  joke he did about Jenner’s male to female transition during his opening monologue at Sunday night’s iHeart Radio Awards in Los Angeles.

The funnyman/actor/singer opened up with quips about Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines” case and Suge Knight’s ongoing health and legal battles, then he joked that Jenner would be performing during the award show.

“He’s going to be doing a his-and-her duet all by himself,” he said.

Uh oh. There it is. It brought a mixture of laughs and groans from the audience. Watch it below and let us know what you think of the joke.

Jenner, by the way, has yet to publicly comment on the news that he is transitioning from male to female.

Here’s a sample of the negative reaction from the public:

Shaq Says He Regrets Leaving the Magic for the Lakers

shaq (la lakers)
**(Via Sporting News) – Nearly 20 years after leaving the Magic, Shaquille O’Neal said he regretted leaving the team that drafted him. Sort of.

O’Neal talked about his decision to leave Orlando as he was inducted into the Magic’s Hall of Fame on Friday.

He told reporters he “kind of regretted” bolting for the Lakers in 1996 after four seasons in Orlando. He left a team many thought had the potential to become a dynasty, as it featured fellow All-Star Penny Hardaway.

“That’s why I kind of regret it, because we had a young, fabulous team,” O’Neal said. “We really did. And it’s a shame that we got torn apart. But I think about that all the time. I try not to live my life now on ‘ifs’ or ‘would’ve, should’ve,’ but do I regret leaving here in ’96, yes I do.”

Meredith: We are back with Paula Patton and you went through a very public breakup with Robin Thicke and everybody wants to know how your’e doing?

Meredith: That’s the hardest thing of all just accepting the new reality.

Paula: Absolutely it is and embrace it and just be thankful for everything I do have. I live in a place of gratitude and growing up in many ways I think, I moved from my parents house to moving in with Robin, and now I’m like becoming an adult at this old age. I’m really like a real woman now.

ALSO: Paula  Talks Working Mom Guilt

Meredith: Kids sometimes say things that really get to you and your son said something to you recently that I think a lot of working moms have had said to them and it’s a tough one. What did he say to you?

Paula: It is true. Really, I took a lot of time off to be with him and then I had to pack for a trip because I had to go to work and he said, ‘Mommy I don’t want you to go to work.’ It’s the challenge of being a working mother and it’s the first time he ever said that to me because I did work when he was a baby but now he is more aware of everything, so what are you going to do? It’s sort of the trials and tribulations of being a woman. Right?

Meredith: After you said that and then walked away.

Paula: I cried. I called my mom and I cried and she said, ‘Darling, I had to work. We all hear that.’

*In spite of LA activist Najee Ali vowing to get her latest single, “Bitch Better Have My Money,” OFF the air, Rihanna performed the song Sunday night at the 2015 iHeart Radio Music Awards to rave reviews.

(They don’t hear you, Najee.)

After an introduction from Taraji P. Henson, who called her a “boss,” the 27-year-old singer took to the stage at the Shrine Auditorium Sunday night at the 2015 iHeart Radio Music Awards to perform her newest single “Bitch Better Have My Money” for the first time live. “Let’s just say her performance was pretty priceless,” reported E! Online:

Arriving in a helicopter, the superstar stepped out wearing green boots, a matching fur coat and a very little black dress. She completed her look with emerald green shades that disappeared midway through the performance.

“Wow! Let’s just hug it out bitch. We’ve got your money,” presenter Jeremy Piven joked seconds after the show. “Wow. It is hot in here.”

LOL!
