Here is some of the most disturbing information revealed in the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries

Here is some of the most disturbing information revealed in the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries


Here is some of the most disturbing information revealed in the <em> Surviving R. Kelly</em> docuseries

Last night, January 3rd, Lifetime’s new docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, aired its first two episodes. The six-part series chronicles the years of sexual abuse allegations leveled against the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer—and the many people who allowed his alleged actions to continue unquestioned. The remaining four episodes of the series will air tonight, January 4th, and tomorrow, January 5th, and the initial two episodes have already brought many disturbing revelations to light. Here are just a few of the most harrowing details we’ve learned so far.

1. Witnesses say Kelly’s ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, was kept locked in an apartment.

USA Today reports that the R&B singer’s former wife, Andrea Kelly, said he planned their entire wedding himself—and she didn’t even know it was going to happen.

“My wedding was a surprise wedding,” she said, per USA Today. “I did not know I was getting married.”

Rolling Stone notes that other witnesses interviewed for the series claimed that she was later locked in Kelly’s apartment. Andrea Kelly has spoken about being abused by her ex-husband before, and in an October 2018 episode of The Viewshe alleged that he physically abused her.

2. One of Kelly’s former backup dancers claimed she witnessed him committing statutory rape.

Jovante Cunningham, a former backup singer and dancer for Kelly, disclosed that she witnessed Kelly having a sexual encounter on a tour bus with then 15-year-old Aaliyah (Kelly was 27). However, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes that Aaliyah’s mother, Diane Haughton, dismissed Cunningham’s claims as “lies and fabrications” in a tweeted statement.

3. Kelly’s ex-assistant said Aaliyah was “worried and scared” at their wedding.

Demetrius Smith, who previously worked as an assistant and tour manager for Kelly, discussed arranging Kelly’s marriage to then 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994. Smith explains that Kelly used a fake marriage license for the ceremony, which listed Aaliyah’s age as 18. Although Kelly has claimed the marriage never occurred, Smith insists it did, adding that Aaliyah was “worried and scared” before the ceremony.

“Aaliyah looked worried, scared,” he said. “She was worried and scared. I wanted so much to grab Aaliyah and talk to her. She gave me a look like she wanted me to talk to her…I knew that it had changed the course of everything.”

The information that has come to light in Surviving R. Kelly is undoubtedly horrifying. We just hope the series helps bring Kelly to justice.

Shay Mitchell revealed that she had a miscarriage in 2018, and called on fans to make this uplifting New Year’s resolution

For Shay Mitchell, 2018 was definitely a big year—after all, she got to spend it starring as Peach Salinger in Lifetime’s You. But behind the scenes, something else was going on in her life, and she hadn’t filled her fans in on it until now.

In honor of the New Year’s holiday, Mitchell opened up about something heartbreaking that happened to her in 2018: a miscarriage. While sharing the highlights of her year on her Instagram Story, she also revealed that her year hadn’t come “without some hardships,” which included losing a baby.

Not only did Mitchell share a sonogram photo (with a broken heart emoji), but she also offered up a lengthy caption about how her miscarriage affected her and what she hopes her fans will do in the year ahead.

“We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. And sometimes it’s easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads many people to criticize it for its lack of authenticity,” Mitchell wrote. “Having so many people follow me on Instagram and read my posts is both incredibly humbling and hugely uplifting. The support and affection that so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I miscarried and lost the child of my hopes and dreams.”

She went on to encourage her followers to show a little extra empathy to the people in their lives in 2019, because it’s hard to know exactly what someone’s going through based only on what they choose to share with the world online.

“In the spirt of the new year, I think that we need to remember that we are all on this journey together—in good times and in bad—and to remind ourselves that we seldom really know or understand the struggles and hardships that other people are going through,” Mitchell continued. “So, for 2019, let’s all try to be a little more compassionate, empathetic, patient, and thoughtful with each other.”

This is just another reason we love this former Pretty Little Liars star. We’re crossing all our fingers and all our toes that she has the 2019 of her dreams.

Maria Butina’s ‘Red Sparrow’ Makeover Revealed on Russian TV

via Facebook

Russia’s state-TV Channel One program, hosted by Andrey Malakhov, has aired a revealing special about Maria Butina, including interviews with her parents, relatives, and friends.

Butina recently pleaded guilty to engaging in a conspiracy against the United States, having sought to establish unofficial lines of communication with Americans who possess political power and influence. She admitted to acting under the direction of a Russian official, Alexander Torshin. She faces a maximum of five years in prison, but is likely to receive zero to six months based on her plea agreement.

Russian state television and government officials appear to be deeply concerned about the information Butina has provided to U.S. authorities. Maria Zakharova, the spokesperson for the Russian foreign ministry, claimed erroneously that Butina is facing 15 years in prison and has been subjected to medieval torture while in U.S. custody.

’90 Day Fiance’ Cast Salaries Revealed Amid Cash Crisis For Danielle And Paul

Both Danielle Jbali and Paul Staehle have starred on 90 Day Fiancé for multiple seasons – and they are both fan favorites – but that isn’t keeping the reality stars from having money troubles. In the past week, both Jbali and Staehle revealed that they were in desperate need of some cash.

According to In Touch Weekly, Staehle is having trouble paying for plane tickets and baggage fees for a trip to Brazil, and Jbali says she is facing eviction from her mobile home park.

Staehle is expecting his first child with wife Karine, and he was hoping to return to Brazil to be with her for the holidays before returning to the United States. He has started to offer autographed photos in exchange for donations to make some cash for the trip. However, there has been some backlash from fans because they thought he was asking for handouts.

But that hasn’t stopped him from trying to raise the money he needs. And, recently on his Instagram stories, he thanked fans for their gifts and donations.

“I want to thank everyone who mailed the gifts and donations for Christmas 4 Karine,” wrote Staehle. “Unfortunately, @AmericanAirlines has dramatically increased the baggage rate. Anyone willing to contribute towards shipping cost, we will mail a thank you family autographed photo when we return.”

As for Jbali, she started sharing her money troubles on Facebook before switching to Instagram to tell her story. The reality star says that she works two jobs while going to school full-time and she is struggling to make ends meet. Now, she is behind on her lot rent, and she is doing everything she can to get caught up.

Jbali says that she is doing “cameos, promoting products, and selling products” to earn cash so she can pay the past due amount.

“The mobile home park took me to court, and I came up with the money, but it is the matter of them accepting it or not. If they don’t accept it, I will have to leave the home I own and find a way to move my trailer out of the park,” she explained.

An insider says that people who appear on Before the 90 Days earn between $ 500 and $ 1,000 per episode, while stars of 90 Day Fiancé make between $ 1,000 and $ 1,500 per episode. The rate does increase for those who appear on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, but the insider insists that the increase isn’t much.

For those who are on a K-1 visa, they don’t get paid at all when filming in the United States because they have to wait for a work permit. However, that changes when they film in their home country.

Last season’s Happily Ever After? stars Nicole Nafziger and David Toborowsky are also having money troubles. And, they have tried to earn cash by charging fans for personalized video messages on Cameo.

Nafziger charges $ 50 per message, while Toborowsky and his wife Annie charge $ 40.

New episodes of 90 Day Fiancé air Sunday nights on TLC.

Revealed: Sylvia Plath’s Last Desperate Letters

Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

Going through a breakup with her on-off boyfriend Richard Sassoon in the spring of 1956 Sylvia Plath wrote to her mother that her doubts about Richard stemmed from his physical inadequacy. “I see now through the boyish weakness of his frame, & the delicate health & unathletic nature, to a soul which is kingly and beautiful and strong.” The all-American good looks of a different beau, Gordon Lameyer, created the opposite problem. Plath was looking for a man to be her partner in life and the father of her children who was her equal in both physical and intellectual vigor. She found him, at a party in Cambridge just a month after writing to her mother about Richard. His name was, of course, Ted Hughes.

Plenty has been committed to paper about Hughes’ betrayal of Plath, when he began an affair with Assia Wevill in the summer of 1962—an affair which stretched on through the winter of 1963, when Plath committed suicide. (Assia moved into Court Green, Plath’s home and gave birth to a daughter by Hughes, named Shura. She cared for Plath’s children and Hughes’s household until Hughes was unfaithful to her, and, in 1969, committed suicide by gas oven, also killing Shura, then four. For more on Assia, read Yehuda Koren and Eliat Negev’s excellent biography, Lover of Unreason.)

Plath’s agony over Hughes’s betrayal is on full display in surviving letters to her friends, her mother, and of course, in her final Ariel poems, which were subsequently collected by Hughes after her death. (Hughes claimed to have burned and/or misplaced Plath’s final journals.) But then, at the end of 2016, came a startling discovery: 14 never-before-seen letters from Plath to her psychiatrist, Dr. Ruth Beuscher, detailing Plath’s struggle after Hughes’s infidelity. These gut-wrenching letters are published for the first time in the second volume of Plath’s letters, edited by Peter K. Steinberg and Karen V. Kukil. The volume bears a foreword from Plath’s daughter, Freida Hughes, recounting her difficult decision over whether the letters should be published.

Emmerdale fans shocked as Leyla’s fiance Clive revealed to be Frank’s conman friend

EMMERDALE fans are in shock after Leyla Harding’s fiance Clive turned up – and was swiftly revealed to be a conman.

Suave Clive – who is played by former Holby City actor Tom Chambers in the ITV soap – appeared in the village to win back Leyla after falling in love with her in Greece.

Leyla couldn’t wait to introduce Clive to Frank

However after his ex turned up wanting her jewellery back claiming he had stolen then, Leyla was ready to move on.

But within five minutes he had no only managed to talk her around, but also into an office romp.

And while things were looking rosy for Leyla, it soon became clear that Clive had a dark side he was hiding – and Frank Clayton confirmed it when he confronted him about why he was in the village.

It emerged Clive was Frank’s former prison cellmate and Frank had taught him everything he knew about conning people while they were banged up together.

Clive looked utterly terrified to see Frank again – until he failed to expose him
Frank took Clive to task, but viewers weren’t convinced by Clive’s answers

He told him: “Why are you here Clive? What’s the con? Megan and Vanessa know all about my past, everybody does.

“There was no hiding, was there? When we did time. We shared a cell so I know all about you Clive. I created a monster.”

Clive told him he had changed, adding: “All I want to do is to be with the woman I love, you keep our history to yourself and I’ll keep your secrets.”

“The only person you’ve ever loved is you and you’re up to something Clive,” Frank told him as he threatened to tell Leyla what he knew.


Fans were shocked at the reveal with one saying: “Clive seems a creep! Don’t like him he hasn’t changed one bit once a con man always a con man!”

Another added: “I’ll be honest, I thought Clive was going to call Frank ‘Dad’ at one point!!”
