Nelly Plans To Take Legal Actions Against Accuser After Rape Charges Were Dropped

Prosecutors dropped rape charges against the rapper Nelly on Thursday, after his accuser refused to cooperate with investigators.

The 43-year-old rapper plans to take legal action against his 21-year-old accuser to clear his name and save his reputation, his lawyer tells People.

The women said Nelly raped her on his tour bus in October in King County, Washington – shortly after the woman said she wanted to stop the investigation.

Nelly’s reps told the publication on Friday: ‘The formal close of the investigation into the false allegations made against Nelly is of course welcome — however expected.

‘We were confident that what our investigation revealed from the outset of this allegation would ultimately be clear and Nelly would be vindicated.’

The statement continued: ‘A thorough investigation did show Nelly was a victim of deceitful allegation devoid of credibility. Credible evidence did show this accuser to be deceptive.

‘We have been in constant communication with the King County authorities and welcomed and appreciated the diligence in which the authorities proceeded leaving no stone unturned.’

In October the Auburn police arrested Nelly – real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr. – in his tour bus at a Walmart.

He was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree rape and released.

The Texas-born rapper’s lawyers wanted to make it clear that the Dilemma singer takes rape allegations seriously and believes women should come forward if violated.

‘Nelly recognizes the need for women who are victims of sexual assault of any kind to be heard and our existing systems changed.’

‘Nelly supports various women’s advocacy groups that deal with sexual assault and violence against women and is dedicated to raising awareness and furthering the conversation to bring about necessary changes.

‘However, this type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault,’ the statement continued.

‘Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation. He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer.’

His lawyer ended: ‘As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation.’

Usiseme Hukuambiwa: Beware Of Bottle Hoes

Week two of DrinkThemba en the party don’t stop with nine days to Christ’s Birthday… The celebrations started two weeks ago, en still going strong…

This year’s Jamuhuri Day will be the most-talked-about in history, after the President decided to be very generous with his Commendations to civilians… President Uhuru beat the record of the most commendations handed out by Kenyan presidents… I doubt even his father Jomo gave out so many commendations after Kenya got its Independence…

The commendations came in fast and furious. #TheRaverend believes everyone knows somebody who got the presidential commendation!!! The commendations were like free comps at a big concert…#TheRaverend is still waiting for his commendation that I suspect was edited out from the list by some haters from State House!!!

So as Kenyans try to get to terms with the President’s generosity of dishing commendations like Father Christmas…We turn our attention to the rising number of road accidents happening all over the country… NTSA normally would not get airtime on #TheRaverend’s column, but Yo! This shit is getting out of control #SkrrrrrrrPoooomPooom 2 plus 2 is 4 minus one is three accidents too many…

Somebody needs to do their job because Kenyans can’t be trusted on the major highways, especially in this festive season…Talking of fhe festive season, all the summer/winter bunnies are back from the various diaspora codes… En when this Kenyans land from foreign land, they come with some serious hunger en thirst to party and drink…

It’s like when in the Diaspora, all they do is work en never get time to go out en turn up or socialise… What they forget is that the locals, aka us guys, have work and bills to pay, so we have a hustle and routine to follow; it can’t be disrupted because some Tom or Tammy whom you last saw when Kibaki was president is back in the city…

Yeah, I know December is one big weekend, but work comes first, so sometimes when we ignore your calls to go out, just understand and don’t take it as an insult or assume we are broke!!! You want to party all week long, find your other Diasporians or that friend who is jobless and is always ready for a plan…

ION, I need to educate my Diasporians en some backward Kenyans of something called “bottle hoes”. They are worse than slay queens as a matter of fact!!! The difference between a slay queen and bottle hoe is very clear… A bottle hoe is ok, a mission, she is employed by the club/pubs/lounges…

Their job is to sell as much alkohor as possible in a night… So when you rock into a club and find a hot chick or chicks coming to your table partying with you, trust me they have targets.

Meaning, they will stay and entertain your sorry arse as long as you keep popping the booties! The moment your cash runs low and the bottles stop coming, you will not see them again… They become invisible like the Ninja and disappear to the next mark…

As for the slay queens, these are the social media chicks. They never have an agenda and all they care about is taking pictures and going to places, en if you’re lucky, you can chipo her very quick…

They don’t work for the clubs and never have a plan. They just look good and look for someone to show them a good time. So pick your girls wisely this festive season as you go out en enjoy the sights and sounds of Kenya!!!

Update: Where the parties at? All major clubs in the city have some sort of dope party happening, so finding a place to party is not rocket science. The major events like the Diani Beach Festival in Ukunda is entering its second week after an amazing premiere weekend with Sauti Sol en the world’s sexiest DJ from Hong Kong among the headline acts having already performed…

#TheRaverend will be in Eldoret for the weekend, so if you’re in Eldoret, you can catch me at your top clubs if you can…

So as we keep up with the appearance this festive season, let’s not drink and drive, unless what you’re drinking as you drive is only water for dehydration, because they say water is life. Be safe as you make your moves on the Kenyan highways!!!

Utajua Hujui: Popular Kenyan Artiste Caught Pants Down By Lady’s Sponsor

This past weekend was a rollercoaster for a top Kenyan artiste who was caught pants done in the residence of a slay queen who’s lifestyle is sponsored by a rich tycoon, according to The Raverend Juice.

The rapper who has topped charts and is known for his musical prowess after a successful comeback has been having a torrid affair with the air hostess who lives in Nyayo Estate.

Sources claim that the sponsor of the stewardess got wind of the young man munching his malaika. The old gentleman has funded her expensive lifestyle and had even paid for her latest BMW.

The air hostess was treated like a queen, anything she wanted she got. After all she is quite the looker. She is stunning and has class. The sponsor really liked her,” the source whispered.

Once the trap had been set, the singer/rapper walked into it and took off is trousers. The sponsor caught them red handed and went ahead to beat the rapper like a drum.

The drama caused a lot of commotion that the neighbours got out to be treated to the fracas. The star was beaten black and blue.

The star could not be reached for comment but his management gave a cursory and curt response saying, “Stories za Nairobi even if you comment, no one is interested in the truth. Did it happen? Is it true? Doesn’t matter to guys.”

The rich man who is normally spotted riving in and out of the apartment complex in expensive machinery took away the BMW, credit cards and any financial perks she enjoyed.

The poor lass is stressed, she has tried reaching out to the sponsor asking for forgiveness but the sugar daddy is rilling from the betrayal and is left with a sour taste in his mouth.

The question on everyone’s mind is, will the rapper take on the financial deficit left gaping by the sponsor?

Meet The Only Kenyan To Receive The Prestigious 2018 Queen’s Young Leader Award

Douglas Mwangi is one man Kenyans are really proud of. At such a young age, he is about to shock the world with his moves.

Douglas will be the first Kenyan to receive the prestigious Queen’s Young Leader Award come June 2018. In an interview with Adelle and Shaffie on Breakfast with the Stars, Douglas explained how he came about winning this golden opportunity.

douglas on kiss

It has been a back and forth process chatting with the Queen’s leader team and I didn’t expect to win it, so I got a call that was like a 15 minutes call. I actually thought it was a regret call at the end, but they dropped the mic and said Douglas you have won the Queen’s Youth Leader Award. I was so excited, shouted everywhere. I’ve never been that emotional in my life, I just felt honoured.”

But before this opportunity came along, Douglas has had his very own fair share of struggles. Coming from Mathare, he had a tough journey growing up to a point it took him years to complete school.

Growing up in the slums is not easy, very limited resources and I can remember vividly, I was in class 7, I spent almost a term home just because I didn’t have a Math text book. The school was collecting books. After clearing Primary School, there was nothing much to do and my mother couldn’t afford to take me to High School. It happened that I started hanging out with this gang around and life wasn’t easy and I almost lost my life and that’s when I realized that I needed to change my life and then learned how to shave hair at 14 years and I secured employment in one of the barber shops in Mathare. Then I realized that this was not the life I want to live. I used to make a thousand bob a month so I started saving and I went back to school in 2004. It was on and off, so I finished in 2010. I spent like six years in High School. I even did construction work.”

They say there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. Douglas worked tirelessly to make sure that the people of Mathare are educated and can learn a few skills here and there. So he decided to start and organization, Oasis Community Center, which is a digital community hub for youth and children in Mathare.

douglas on Kiss

So what is the Oasis Center about?

It’s a youth organization and we seek to empower marginalized community from Mathare with ICT skills, entrepreneurship skills, we also have a community library and we have a kid’s corner where kids can play with toys but the main aim for the kids corner is to encourage them to use technology at an early age and then they can also read. That’s basically what we do at Oasis Mathare.”

When asked how he managed to start it, he explained, “I started while I was working with DOT. Joining Dot gave me a very nice platform to work with the youths in Mathare so I was deployed to Mathare slums to train them some entrepreneurship and ICT skills and I have always wanted to do something for the community but I didnt know how and I didn’t have the resources. So I knew once I got the resources I’ll do it coz I had the plan but I didn’t know how to start. So I met this group while I was teaching them. There’s this guy called Jimmy who started a business with nothing, so I realized that you don’t need to have cash to start something. Late 2013, with my laptop and friends, we thought we should start something and in 2014 we had our first space along Juja Road, then moved from the place because the private developer came in and took that place. And that’s how it started.”

Jennifer Hudson Claims Ex David Otunga Is Leaking False Claims In Bitter Custody Battle

Jennifer Hudson has accused her ex David Otunga of trying to make her look bad as their ongoing custody battle gets increasingly bitter.

The Spotlight singer, 36, has filed an emergency motion to stop her former fiance from speaking to the press or posting on social media about their custody dispute over son David Jr., eight.

Jennifer Hidson

The actress has claimed the ex wrestler has been leaking false information to make himself look better and is ruining her career in the process, according to documents obtained by The Blast.

David has also filed documents, accusing Jennifer of ‘throwing repeated public jabs’ which would violate their custody gag order as reported by TMZ.

The TV personality has claimed her former partner or his team have been telling media outlets he won primary custody of their son, but she insists that is false.

David Otunga and Son

And though she dropped an order of protection against the wrestler last month, she insisted that was because he agreed to vacate their family home, not because he won custody of the youngster.

She also stated David had signed a confidentiality agreement in August, but he is now denying the authenticity of the signature on the agreement.

Jennifer claimed David is deliberately trying to place her in a false light by creating negative news, and she thinks that is harmful to both their child and her career.

david otunga

But the The Voice coach insisted that without her income, they would all be in financial ruin, and she described her ex-partner’s career goals as “voluntary underemployment”.

As well as wanting the court to ban David and his team from speaking out, she also wants him to be found in contempt and for the court to order him to issue a press release stating he never won primary custody of David Jr. and all the reports he has contributed to were false.

‘When Someone Isn’t What Others Want Them To Be, They Become Angry’ Big Ted Shouts!

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s events man and official MC, Big Ted, is one of the most his determined men in Kenya.

During the 54th Jamhuri Day celebrations, the President honoured 200 individuals with the coveted State Commendation and among them was Big Ted himself, real name Thomas Kwaka.

Him being in the list together with journalists, artistes and Evangelists among others, The President’s choice of people to honour was not well received and many argued that the selection was not fair and many people who were selected on the Civilian Division did not deserve the award.

But Big Ted has chosen not keep quite and has come out to defend the people who were selected because many Kenyans were not happy. Through a post, he has justified the selection and said that everyone is entitled to their own opinion though not everyone will be happy when you are making it.

bigted3

So the HE my boss honoured a few of us yesterday and the reactions have been interesting and while I am aware that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I am also aware that YOU are entitled to your informed opinion..No one is entitled to be ignorant of all the facts and I also need not be ignorant when voicing my opinion especially on matters I don’t have full disclosure to because with the advent of social media to quote P.Coelho ” when someone isn’t what others want them to be, then others become angry.”

He went ahead to explain how people will always have a clear idea of other people’s lives but won’t have about theirs.

Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own ” see I realized and finally accepted that everyone I meet or interact with is a seeker..there is something that they are looking for it may be money, love or even relevance and whatever YOU are looking for shall dictate how YOU react even to the smallest things concerning others.”

Kwaka added that opinions will never be equal.

That should explain why many armchair and keyboard analysts have probably never tried or ventured or been successful in that thing that they provide an experts opinion of.See all opinions are not equal. Some are a very great and more robust, some have a background to fact some don’t and most unfortunately are other people.Those thoughts are someone else’s opinions, and an attempt to look cute in arguments.”

The MC also gave his thoughts concerning character and said that he has learnt to respect other people’s decision even when he thinks there is a mistake.

Character is manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones..those small sleepless nights ,those behind the scenes struggles those tiny teary moments that no one sees,many when the situations seems unimportant.lam learning to draw lines in the sand albeit late but this match is not over I am learning to say No and mean it I am learning to accept No from even my closest friends and I am learning to respect other people’s decisions even when I think they are mistakes.”

Good character is built on what YOU do..So take every opportunity YOU can to put your beliefs into action..in life even small decisions in minor situations can make a big difference and not everyone must a agree with YOU…Mungu Mbele.”He concluded his lengthy post.

Kevin Hart Reflects On ‘Bumps On The Road’ In Wake Of Sextortion Scandal

Kevin Hart has had a ‘tough year’ following his extortion scandal over a sexually suggestive video.

When asked by Extra what he would want for Christmas, the 38-year-old actor – who recently welcomed his first child with Eniko, a son named Kenzo, into the world – said: ‘Have I been naughty or nice? That’s definitely a tough question for Kevin Hart right now, it was a tough year for me.

‘I had some bumps in the road. But the good thing is you take great steps backwards to take great steps forward. So now, I’ve recovered from some not nice times and now what I basically want is for Santa to know that I’m doing good and I’m doing better. Just to know I’m good guy.’

It isn’t the first time Kevin – who also children Heaven, 12, and Hendrix, nine, with ex-wife Torrei – has spoken about the scandal, as he first revealed the plot when he sent ‘many apologies’ to his wife and children in an emotional Instagram post, in which he discussed his ‘mistakes’ and claimed there was someone trying to make ‘financial gain’ from his past antics.

He said: ‘I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back.

‘And because of that I should make smart decisions. And recently, I didn’t. You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form.

‘And I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and made apologies to, that would be my wife and my kids.

‘And I just, you know, it’s a s***ty moment. It’s a s***ty moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses.

‘At the end of the day man, I just simply have got to do better. But I’m also not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes and in this particular situation that was what was attempted. I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes.’

Damn Son! George Clooney Once Gifted His 14 Friends $1.3million Each And Here’s The Reason Why

George Clooney once gifted 14 of his closest friends $1.3million each as a thank you gift for helping him make it in Hollywood.

His close pal Rande Gerber – who is married to supermodel Cindy Crawford – recalled the highly generous moment on the US show Headliners which saw the silver-haired fox invite everyone to his pad and surprise them with a suitcase full of money each.

It was also recently reported by Page Six that the actor, 56, and his wife Amal Clooney, 39, handed out personalised headphones to fellow passengers on a flight to apologise for any potential noise caused by their six-month-old twins, Ella and Alexander.

With humble beginnings in Kentucky, George proved to be more than grateful for the people who saw, and helped him, rise through the ranks on his journey to stardom.

His role as Dr. Doug Ross on ER finally catapulted him to fame in 1994 and he soon became Hollywood’s most famous leading man – no doubt, giving him financial stability.

Businessman and former model Rande, 55, detailed the moment Clooney finally thanked those nearest and dearest with a lavish gift.

‘There’s a group of guys that we call ‘The Boys’. George had called me and ‘The Boys’ and said, “Hey, mark September 27, 2013 on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner.”

‘George begins to say, “Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life. I came to Los Angeles, I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you.

“So it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases,”‘ Rande teased the story which happened four years ago.

Rande then detailed their surprise at what was in their suitcases: ‘Every one of us – 14 of us – got a million dollars. Every single one of us. We’re in shock. Like, what is this.

‘He goes, “I know we’ve all been through some hard times, some of you are still going through it. You don’t have to worry about your kids, you don’t have to worry about, you know, school, you don’t have to worry about paying your mortgage'”, Rande recalled his heartfelt speech.

George’s kindhearted nature also came to light by Page Six who revealed that George and wife Amal handed all the passengers on their flight to the UK noise-cancelling headphones to shield them from any noise from their young twins.

A note ‘apologising ahead of time’ – and featured George’s Casamigos Tequila logo – was also included.
