R.Kelly's Illinois mansion was auctioned off on Monday (March 18th) for $950,000 -- which is less than the $3.5 mortgage that he took out to build the home. Kells brought the 20,000 square foot home back in 1997, but in 2011, the bank tried to foreclose on the home, claiming that he hadn't made mortgage payments in over a year.
He tried to sell them home for $1.6 million to block the foreclosure, but it sat for a year. The home has 6 bedrooms, 8 baths, an indoor pool, theater room and private lake.
Check out the home:
Rapper Too Short has just been arrested for DUI ... after allegedly attempting to run from police, TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Short -- real name Todd Anthony Shaw -- was pulled over in L.A. a couple hours ago for some traffic violation ... and when cops approached the vehicle, they determined he appeared under the influence.
Now here's where it gets weird -- when police attempted to administer a breathalyzer test, law enforcement sources tell us Too Short took off running ... and tripped on the street.
Police apprehended Too Short and placed him under arrest ... and tossed him into a police cruiser.
On the way back to the station, things got even crazier -- we're told Too Short tried to dump narcotics in the back of the cruiser. According to law enforcement sources, Too Short is currently being booked for DUI and felony narcotics possession.
(anyone else think the mental image of Too Short tripping while running is funny as hell?)
Rumor has it that Beyonce's upcoming fifth album is being pushed back until the fall. According to Mediatakeout, the album was due out soon. The two songs that have been released -- which are "Nuclear" and "Bow Down/I Been On" have flopped. A source close to Beyonce has said, "No one thought that both records would fall flat. They were supposed to be her biggest two songs off the album."
A source says that it is unlikely that Beyonce will release a single or an album before she goes on tour next month. The insider said, "It's back to the drawing board. More recording, until [they] get a great album."
No official word from Beyonce's camp or label on this rumor, so more than likely, Bey's album -- rumored to be entitled Mrs. Carter will be hitting stores before she goes on tour in April.
This same BS rumor comes out every time she puts out a cd....remember when Bey dropped 'Girls Run the World'?
Michael Jordan has denied paying off Pamela Smith -- a woman who has claimed that she is the father of her 16-year-old son. The suit was dismissed earlier this week. According to WaPo, Jordan's spokesperson said, Estee Portnoy, Jordan's spokeswoman said that there was no financial settlent with Smith and that the lawsuit was without merit.
As previously reported, Randall M. Kessler said in an email to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, "Ms. [Pamela Y.] Smith has authorized a dismissal of the current suit against Mr. Jordan. The lawsuit was withdrawn Friday without prejudice, which means it could be refiled. Dropping the suit now is in her "son's best interest," her lawyer told the AJC.
Jordan denied that he was the 16-year-old's father and had filed a countersuit, claiming that in Smith's divorce case, her ex-husband had been established as the child's father.
