R. Kelly stopped by HuffPost Live on Monday to promote his new album, The Buffet, but things went from great to disastrous after host, Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani, started asking about the singer’s past sexual abuse allegations.

Nearly 8 minutes into the interview, Modarressy-Tehrani launched right into this question: “When you think about R. Kelly I think people find it very difficult to not think about the multiple lawsuits, the multiple allegations of you having inappropriate relations, sex relations with minors. What do you say to those people who find it conflicting.”

To that, the Grammy Award wining singer responded: “Since you are the one who brought it up I’ll just say it to you because I don’t hear it from anyone else … As far as from me to you, I would say f*ck that. I’m a man that believes what I sees. Everywhere I’ve been I get nothing but love.”

At that point, Caroline attempted to make a point and that’s when things spiraled out of control. “I didn’t come here for negative, I came here for positive,” the artist explained.

A source tells HipHollywood exclusively that the singer “felt like he was ambushed” by the news outlet and that he was very “upset.”

See the interview below and for when things go haywire, go straight to 8 minutes.

    why the fuck would you ask those kind of questions for an album release? Oh I guess it’s the new journalism – nobody reads it if you don’t “go there” anymore. Fair enough. Not really. Lame.

      Amen! You said it perfectly, Richard. It’s completely senseless and out of the bounds of normal, respectable journalism.

    I think that he should have been warned upfront that he would be asked questions about his past lawsuits, mishaps, and unpleasant experiences.

    He would have had the opportunity to accept or refuse the interview.

      I totally agree, Denise. Well said.

    Typical question from an Anglo-Persian (British-Iranian) feminist news junkie who has the opportunity to speak to an infamous R&B legend and instead of taking it for what it was worth, she turns into every other ragtag journalist noob and destroys any sort of future relationship or presence among such stars. Honestly, with a name like that, she should be happy she even has a job. Iran is nobody’s favorite place, today, nor ever. I’ll never forget in North Jersey while 21, expressing interest in the U.S. military and this older, Iranian man possibly in his 60s-70s at the time, discouraged me right off the bat–unexpectedly–making a horrible, ignorant, distasteful and crude type of comment about when American soldiers die, their families only receive $25,000. He was purposefully speaking down on the country, the military, disrespecting volunteer soldiers–and this piece of scum hung around the Italian neighborhood and drank at the bars, played cards with the Mob guys. What a piece of trash. That entire place deserves punishment, by God’s Almighty wrath. This journalist considers herself a ‘lapsed Catholic’, and supposedly this gives her the right to speak ridiculously about classic figures and stars, anything really, even the Catholic church, Christianity, etc. President Obama has given Iran so much, as if the President of Iran matters, when it is so evident the Supreme Ayatollah is the Leader over all, for it is religion that rules the Middle East – the Muslim religion, Islam. They shout and scream out “Death to America!”, “Death to the Jews!”, etc. etc. And we give them money and a chance to build a nuclear bomb sometime in the future, while the Ayatollah states how he will take that money and use it against us, to kill us. I don’t trust any man or woman from Iran, Syria, any of those Middle Eastern “radicalized Muslim” states and countries that promotes and supports and breeds ISIS, al-Nusra Front, The Khomeni(sp?) Group, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc. I don’t understand how a President could force us Americans to accept these Muslim refugees after all that we’ve been through? Unbelievable. And now the American jobless are going to have even a harder time finding work, while people like this journalist, this Iranian Feminist who works at Huffington Post of all places, can sit there and speak down against legends like R. Kelly who’s simply trying to promote a brand new album!!

    Apologies for any offense taken, but I speak how I feel, the truth, the problems that we have in this country, and this world, and under this Presidency, and with people in the Media like this journalist. Seriously. It’s everywhere. It’s sad. Gaydom and MuslimDom have conquered this 21st Century. And they’re forcing us or trying to have us BELIEVE and ACCEPT that Jesus, Moses, Abraham, and Mohammad are all the SAME? Are the same GOD? Are the same FAITH? Jesus is NOT the same Jesus of the Qur’an.

7 Most Jaw-Dropping Celeb Maternity Shoots

Published

on

There’s nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman. There’s no debate … fight us. When a woman is carrying life in her womb she exudes beauty, grace and, of course, that pregnancy glow. But these celebrities took “pregnancy glow” to a whole ‘other level! Check out these stunning maternity shoots that left us with our jaws on the floor.

Toya Wright just released the photos from her maternity shoot and they are absolutely stunning. No matter how you feel about pregnancy nudity (seriously, if you’re against it you’re lame) you have to admit that this is tasteful and beautiful. Wright is expecting her second daughter Reign later this year.

And speaking of Toya, her bestie Tameka “Tiny” Harris also bared her body in a beautiful maternity photo shoot. When pregnant with her youngest daughter, Heiress Harris, Tiny got super creative with her look and went for an underwater theme that resulted in some gorgeous pics.

It was a family affair for Ciara who posed with her son Future, and husband Russell Wilson, in her maternity pic. This photo got everyone on the internet talking … was it weird? Beautiful? Awkward? We’ll let you decided. But, you have to admit, it definitely caught your attention. Ci Ci gave birth to her daughter Sienna almost a year ago … but we have yet to see her face.

The GOAT shared her glow with Vanity Fair and shut. it. down! Serena Williams gave us all the side-bump envy with her beautifully natural maternity shoot for the mag. The tennis phenom welcomed her baby girl, Alexis Olympia, on September 1st of last year.

Teyana Taylor is body goals and when she was pregnant with baby Junie she was definitely baby bump goals, too. Just look at this photo! Taylor and her hubby, NBA star Iman Shumpert, decided to highlight not only her beauty, but his strength in this photo shoot and the result was stunning.

Now, y’all already knew the Kels was going to slay her maternity shoot, and slay she did! Kelly Rowland gave us not one, but two awe-inspiring preggo pics that show why her nickname is the Godvia goddess. Get into that glow! Baby Titan did a body good.

And lest we forget Rowland’s homegirl, Beyonce! She did not come to play with you h*es, #FormationVoice. A bouquet of flowers, a bare belly and a veil over her face … many said the photo was over-the-top, but it’s ‘Yonce — what did you expect?! Queen Bey’s announcement of the impending arrival of twins, Rumi and Sir, was downright regal and quite different from how she announced baby Blue Ivy (the MTV mic drop heard round the world.)

Who was your fave? Or do you think we forgot someone? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below!
