A grand jury has been convened in Cook County, Illinois, in connection with new allegations against singer R. Kelly, according to two sources close to the case.

This comes on the heels of attorney Michael Avenatti announcing last week that he had handed over to the State's Attorney's office a videotape that he says shows Kelly engaging in sex acts with an underage girl.

The Cook County State's Attorney would not confirm the grand jury proceedings or the existence of any new investigation. The office had previously encouraged any alleged victims of R. Kelly to come forward.

Steve Greenberg, an attorney for R. Kelly, told CNN on Monday he had not been notified of a grand jury.

General Discussion Forum / Re: Do you use any types of cash apps?
« on: Yesterday at 10:44:48 AM »
A good friend turned me on to the Cash App several years ago and I have used it about a dozen times since then.  The app has come in handy when I have needed to get cash to or get cash from family or friends quickly that live far away.  When purchasing game tickets for a group of friends it is easier for me to collect everyone's money via the app then purchase the tickets all together.  My sister and I purchased my grandmother a TV one year for her birthday, because I am out-of-state it was easier for me to send my sister my half of the money via the app.  And I have been able to reimburse frat brothers, classmates, and colleagues in different states back quickly for last minute things like fraternity fundraisers, class reunions, and mailing packages.  The nice thing about the app is funds are immediately available in your account.       

Thanks for the clarification Aggie. Purchasing group tickets has always been a big issue. This will prevent you from getting stiffed. Every time I try to get my money back from M&G, he throws a tantrum and calls me cheap.  :shrug:

I have side with j on this. There is some deep mental stuff happening when a person goes to this extreme. When normal people lie, they will become silent when it starts unraveling. Instead of retreating, he goes on a victim victory tour.

Well he has effectively ruined his career. There is no redemption tour for this sort of thing.   :brickwall:

Jussie Smollett Case: Brothers Questioned By Police Were Paid $3,500 To Stage Attack, Which Was Rehearsed Days Before, Sources Say

CHICAGO (CBS) — Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say.

Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.

The brothers, who were questioned by police this week before being released, were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised an additional $500 upon their return.


They left for Nigeria later in the day on Jan. 29, after the attack.

Sources said one of the brothers held the rope and poured bleach while the other wore a plain red hat and yelled slurs at Smollett.

The sources say the red hat was bought at an Uptown beauty supply store and that the attack was supposed to happen before Jan. 29. The brothers told detectives the three men rehearsed the attack days prior to it happening.

Smollett claims two men attacked him in Streeterville early Jan. 29 as he was heading to his apartment. He said they yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him, poured a chemical on him and put a rope around his neck.

The brothers are now cooperating with police.

Since being released Friday night, the brothers have been staying in an undisclosed location.

Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said:

“We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation. We’ve reached out to the Empire cast member’s attorney to request a follow-up interview.”
Police raided the the brothers’ home on Wednesday, the same day police met them at O’Hare International Airport, as they were returning from Nigeria.


The two were in custody at Area Central detective headquarters since Wednesday night, before they were released on Friday evening.

Police at one point had placed them under arrest and referred to them as suspects in the case. Then, after interviews on Friday, they were released.

Pictures from the raid show the front door busted off its frame, items thrown across the living room, bedroom doors damaged and clothes tossed everywhere.

Police left behind an inventory list. Some of the items seized include a black face mask hat, an Empire script, phone, receipts, a red hat and bleach.

CBS 2’s Brad Edwards reported Thursday that a source with intimate knowledge of the investigation said investigators believe Jussie Smollett “potentially staged the attack.”

One of the examples is paying your share of a meal to your friend via the app or other similar transactions

If you have a legit business why not use PayPal

If you & your friend have iPhones use Apple Pay Cash

I see, instead of splitting a check, one person pays and the other person apps their portion back. How about everyone pay their own tab to avoid this?

I don't have a need for a Moneygram type service. I guess it could be useful if you normally deal in cash. Even if I had a child in college, i would simply transfer money into their bank account online.

I know a lot of people who have businesses on line use cash apps, but that seems a little sketchy to me.

Are cash apps something only questionable people use?  I mean, I don't know anyone who is financially legitimate using them.  :shrug:

I agree, Martin need to step in and settle this today. If there was a violation of the clery act,  make a public apology,  show solidarity with the young lady and all assault victims, pay the fine, and reprimand the coach. That's it. How difficult is that?  :shrug: i don't think that would put the university in legal jeopardy, since at the end of the day, it  was the victim's responsibility to report an incident that happened off campus to the police.

It is also possible there was no clery violation, which considering the current environment,  puts the university in a difficult position as it relates to the court of public opinion. If they announce that there was no violation, it will seem as though the university is insensitive to young lady and her condition. There are certain things in this country  you don't challenge, Support for Israel is one and a woman who makes an assault claim is another.

So your stance is, if she was raped off campus... and only told her cheer coach... they don't have to report it? They only was she can get justice is by calling Greensboro police department?

 :vomit:

And I thought you said the rest of the student body wouldn't support her because she was a freshman? Seems like SGA is behind her and the other women on campus.

And you work at a university? God help our female students... :brickwall:

From what I see, she has her supporters. It also appears the university and organized groups are taking a cursory position on her situation by focusing on the  'rape culture' on campus.  I hope you realized that amounts to a side step, a soft shoe dance by the powers that be. It seems the university is only examining  it's procedures. They will issue a report with corrective measures and may reprimand a few folk as it relates to the violation.

Can’t reprimand, someone has to be fired. Reprimand is meaningless, will lead to more protest. Martin can’t afford the students to storm the court at the basketball game or any other news worthy event. Don’t let this grow and end up like Folt at UNC.

I agree, but the university has time on it's side. In a couple of months, the school year will be over, and most campus controversies end with that. When it comes to social and political issues, college student have a very short attention span.  That's understandable considering, staying in school and graduating is paramount. With that said, perhaps Martin is playing the long game. One thing about it, to a seasoned administrator, campus culture is very predictable.

I have asked a few current students about the controversy, and most did not care or knew nothing. That actually surprised me. In fairness, they were all upperclassmen. There has always been a disconnect between freshmen and upperclassmen on campus.  Freshmen get caught up in  campus politics that first year, but will eventually grow out of it.

Can both of them be a 'little' right?

Yes, but when when your decision hurts you or hurts your bottom line, don't turn into a bull in a china shop and start tearing up the place. That is precisely what Mo did. When it was working in her favor, she was not out there throwing Oprah, Lee, and Tyler under the bus. Show out like that to me and I'm black balling your a$$, I don't care who you are or how petty it might be.

White folk conduct their business exactly like Steve Harvey does. Yet when a black person uses the same model, y'all get all bound up like 3 day old constipation.  We all know Hollywood is Judas, and for the most part we accept that by supporting their products. Now that a few black folk have entered the game, some of y'all have all the sudden became holier than thou and are holding them to a different standard.

So tell me, why should Lee, Tyler, and Oprah give her a pass. In actuality I think they all have. They took her to the side and talked to her, but she had that nigg--r she is married to in her ear. Do I honestly think she is that weak minded when it comes to her husband, yes. "My king, my daddy', ----girl bye, ain't nobody trying to hear that old testicle testament crap.

Man I must be really old cause that chit made no sense to me.  Made me wonder when "Atlanta" was coming back on though.  :shrug:

He's making a statement about gun violence in America.
Guess I'm more of the "Fight the power" type.  :shrug:

I don't claim to understand young people. Cardi B is a total mystery to me.

Damn, Will Smith stock must be crashing.  What happened?

VG, its Jeffery Wright

M&G, that likely will be the biggest movie of 2019.

 :o

you got to be kidding.

That's a film where you get smoked up and go laugh at Will dressed like that.

I kid you not. This will likely make more money than  Beauty and the Beast a couple years back. Beast of the highest grossing film of that year.  The original Aladdin made a boat load of money for Disney.
