Are you ready for this hot tea, sis?
Word on the curb is R. Kelly‘s team is at it again! In the past, they’ve expressed their concern that Robert would contract the coronavirus (denied), used past surgeries (denied), and now they’re saying he could possibly be diabetic (well, they’re not sure because the test results aren’t in yet).
The Jasmine Brand reported that the singer’s legal team is working hard to get their client an early release by using one of the most highly diagnosed diseases that affect African Americans; diabetes. Kelly has gained some weight while locked up and it’s raising concerns which is why they’re asking for leniency from the judge to release him. Well, they say three times a charm. Or is that 4?
Rihanna is working on something big. Well, not really. There’s a rumor that the pop star’s life will be put to film for an upcoming documentary. The person behind the lenses is familiar with the megastar because they’ve worked together before.
According to rumors and report, Peter Berg is set to direct the film for Amazon. You might remember Berg and Rihanna worked together on Battleship (never saw it…sorry)
The Daily Mail is reporting Berg has been “given an all-access look at the star, compiling over 1200 hours of footage to create the doc.”
So, real or rumor, I’m paying my Amazon bill right now!
Finally, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation has reportedly filed copyright strikes toward a YouTube creator that’s using the mogul’s voice and “flow” for specific online content to promote his brand and projects.
Although Mr. Carter is the inspiration behind the deep fake’s content, it’s illegal to use without his permission. Roc Nation and the mogul “have taken notice of the trend and issued copyright strikes to content creators to shut some of it down.” (TheJasmineBrand.com)
So if I were the deep fake guy, I’d just reach out to celebrity impersonators Affion Crocket, Jay Pharaoh or Aries Spears. I’m not the sharpest pencil in the box but I think it would cost a lot less than going up against “The Roc”, right?
