Gossip: Woman Describes R. Kelly Cult; Johnny Depp Bought A $7000 Couch From KUWTK

A woman has come forward with details on how R. Kelly tried unsuccessfully to get her to run off and be with him by promising to help her career.

She credits her mother for being the one to intervene and put a stop to R. Kelly’s predatory ways.

via TMZ:

The woman tells us she met the singer backstage at one of his shows in December after getting a wristband from someone in his crew. She was 20 at the time.

She says R. Kelly gave her his number and the 2 exchanged calls and texts, and he promised to help her become an actress/model. He invited her to his Georgia home and told her to “wear something sexy.” She claims she brought a friend, but it got real creepy — no phones were allowed and suddenly she was escorted to R’s bedroom.

The woman says Kelly asked her to strut around and pose like a model … and convinced her to take sexy photos. She says he paid her $200 when she left and told her to use it to buy black lingerie, heels and red lipstick for her next visit … which she did.

We’re told she went back to R. Kelly’s place 2 more times — alone — but each time he got more aggressive and controlling … even guilting her into posing nude. She says they never had sex.

She says the last straw was him sending her a one-way ticket to be with him back in L.A. in February, warning her not to bring a friend. She says she felt uneasy and told her mother, who promptly put the kibosh on the trip.

We can’t say we’re surprised at any of this.

Johnny Depp Bought A $7000 Couch From KUWTK

Johnny Depp’s former business managers were told by the court to reframe their arguments about the actor’s spending, and in doing so they’ve added new details about his credit card expenses. Depp charged more than $500,000 in rental fees for storage warehouses that hold his Hollywood collectibles, $17,000 in handbags and luggage at Prada and $7,000 for a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” couch as a gift for his daughter, Lily-Rose, TMG claims.

These expenditures have come to light in The Management Group’s second amended cross-complaint against the actor, the latest filing in a heated legal battle that began in January when Depp sued TMG for $25 million. In the filing, the managers also say Depp’s employees on his private island in the Bahamas racked up about a million dollars in charges related to the island’s expenses — and they had to pay off a large balance after the actor stopped making payments on the card.

“After terminating TMG in mid-March 2016, Depp continued to make the minimum payments on the CNB Visa card for a time but then refused to pay anything further, forcing TMG to pay off the approximately $55,000 that was still owing on the CNB Visa card,” writes attorney Michael Kump. “All charges on the CNB Visa card are undisputedly charges that were incurred on Depp’s behalf similar to, and/or including, the exemplar purchases discussed above. Depp knows all of these expenses were incurred by and/or on his behalf, but simply refuses to pay his debts.”
