*Once again, R.Kelly’s bid to get out of the slammer has been shut down. Page Six reports that a federal judge in Chicago rejected the disgraced singer’s latest attempt for a release amid claims he was attacked by another inmate while no one “raised a finger” to help.

In addition to that, it was also said that US District Judge Harry Leinenweber denied the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer’s request to hold a hearing over the alleged August jailhouse beating. Leinenweber wrote in his ruling, “While this incident is concerning, it does not warrant immediate release.” He added, “This single isolated incident does not suggest that the Bureau of Prisons is incapable of safely housing Mr. Kelly.”

Last week, his lawyers claimed in a filing that footage provided by prosecutors showed that no one at the prison tried to help Kelly during the attack until after the fight was over. However, in the ruling, Leinenweber wrote that the inmate who allegedly beat Kelly, Jeremiah Farmer, had since been transferred to a different facility, which meant he was no longer a threat to Kelly.

*The host of a swingers event in New Orleans revealed 41 out of 300 guests contracted COVID-19.

Naughty Events owner Bob Hannaford revealed in a blog post that he and his staff took several precautions to ensure the safety of attendees. He wrote that they performed temperature checks, practiced social distancing, and sanitized prior to check-in. The guests also wore color-coded bracelets to show who had antibodies and who tested negative for the virus as reported by the New York Post.

“We issued wristbands in one color to indicate who had antibodies and therefore was not contagious. We issued a second color to those that showed us a very recent negative COVID-19 test. The wristbands even had each person’s date of their test circled.”

*NBA star Malik Beasley and “socialite”  Larsa Pippen sent social media into a frenzy earlier this week after they went public with their relationship. In paparazzi photos taken on Nov. 23, Pippen, 46, was seen shopping and holding hands with Malik, 24, as they strolled through a Miami shopping center.

Social media users were even more shocked after Malik’s wife publicly spoke out to react to the news. Montana Yao said she had no idea her husband was out with Larsa: “Wow… I don’t even know this man…” Yao, who shares a child with the Minnesota Timberwolves guard, wrote on her Instagram Story on Tuesday. She added, “This is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.”

Now get into this: a close source to the star tells us that Malik and Montana have actually been separated for months and that the athlete has already started the process to get a divorce. A close source to Larsa also shares that she was fully aware Malik is still married to Montana, but after talking for some time, Larsa and Malik bonded over their pending divorces.

As we previously reported, Larsa was married to NBA legend Scottie Pippen for 21 years and had four children together. The couple filed for divorce in 2016 but reconciled shortly, before permanently cutting ties in 2018; citing irreconcilable differences. Despite all that, Larsa recently credited him as a good father to their kids and someone she will always have love for.

*A day meant for people to come out and pay their respects to a Florida teen who was fatally shot by a Brevard County sheriff’s deputy this month turned into yet another horrific event.

The burial service for Sincere Pierce ended abruptly Saturday afternoon when the teenager’s mother, Quasheda Pierce was struck by a bullet. The gunfire came as the pastor finished his prayers at Riverview Memorial Gardens and Pierce’s friends and loved ones placed flowers on his casket and suddenly a loud pop was heard. Investigators said they think Pierce, 39, was shot when a gun that a 16-year-old had with him accidentally went off. The mother was taken to a hospital, but the severity of her injury was not immediately known.

As WESH2 notes, the sheriff’s office says the teen is not facing charges, though, they are still investigating and said they will let the state attorney decide if charges should be filed.
