The prodigal son of Frank Mitchell is going through it tonight.
Earlier today, expert coattail rider Ray J was charged with a whopping 10 crimes by the LA District Attorney, including 4 counts of resisting arrest, 3 counts of assault and battery and 2 counts of vandalism from an incident that happened in May. Those charges as well as the battery charge are all misdemeanors. The D.A. also charged the fledgling singer with sexual battery even though cops say no such crime was committed.
Ray J was at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel when he got rowdy, brushed up against a woman’s ass and was ordered to leave. Police told TMZ at the time it was NOT a sexual battery because the contact was “incidental” — not intentional. Apparently the D.A. begs to differ. Ray J left the bar and then went nuts in an alcohol-fueled rampage. He was arrested, kicked out the window of a cop car and spit on an officer. Ray J told TMZ he kicked out the window because he was claustrophobic. | TMZ
The upcoming Lifetime biopic of the late R&B singer Aaliyah has already found itself with its fair share of controversy. Now, it has been revealed that her relationship with that pending friend request you’ve being ignoring for months will be showcased in the made for television flick.
“Aaliyah’s personal and professional relationship with R. Kelly will be explored with care in the film as we set out to depict her life with the utmost respect,” executive producer Debra Martin Chase told the New York Post. ”Above all else, it’s our hope to inspire an entirely new generation with her music and larger-than-life talent.”
The two singers were allegedly – and illegally – married in 1994, when Aaliyah was just 15 and Kelly was 27. Aaliyah, who died in a 2001 plane crash at age 22, denied the secret ceremony throughout her life – though a marriage certificate later appeared, with her age falsely listed as 18. (Her parents later reportedly annulled the marriage.) | Rolling Stone
