R. Kelly Fails To Make Bail

Oscars recap…Floyd Mayweather’s birthday party… Terrence Howard is mad… Jordyn Woods blames it on the alcohol… and R. Kelly fails to make bail

It was a big night for women at the Oscars. Fifteen took home little gold men. Among those were Olivia Colman, who won Best Actress for “The Favourite,” upsetting Glenn Close who still doesn’t have an Oscar after seven nominations. Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for “If Beale Street Could Talk.” For Best Actor, Rami Malek won for “Bohemian Rhapsody” and then — out of the camera’s view — fell off the stage. He was checked by paramedics and he’s fine. Best Supporting Actor went to Mahershala Ali for “Green Book,” which also won Best Picture. That one caused a lot of controversy. Critics say this is the worst Best Picture win since “Crash” in 2005. Spike Lee was so upset about it, he tried to storm out of the theater, but the ushers made him go back to his seat. And congratulations to Lady Gaga for winning Best Original Song for “Shallow” from “A Star is Born.”

A lot of drama at Floyd Mayweather’s 42nd birthday party at the Sunset Room Saturday night. Tyga showed up around 12:30am and was kicked out about 10 minutes later. We don’t know what he did to be dragged out by a security guard, but thanks to paparazzi outside, you can see Tyga reaching for another security guard’s gun! All the paps are telling Tyga, “It’s not worth it, man!” and he eventually runs off down the street to his car. The next day, Tyga posted a picture on his Instagram Story with a group of guys and one of them is the security guard who dragged him out of the club! He captioned it, “No rap cap. Real street sh**. Sat down face 2 face & spoke, & turned it into some real men sh**. All love. Back 2 the bag.”

Sources told TMZ that Terrence Howard was so mad with Jussie Smollett that he wouldn’t even come out of his dressing room when Jussie apologized to the cast and crew of “Empire.” But to the rest of the world, Terrence is Jussie’s number one supporter. He posted a video of Jussie playing with Terrence’s baby boy and captioned it, “All your lil homies got you… We love the hell outta you ♥.” When Howard got some blowback for sticking up for Jussie, he wrote, “Sorry you feel that way but that’s the only Jussie I know. The Jussie I know could never even conceive of something so unconscious and ugly. His innocence or judgment is not for any of us to decide. Stay in your lane and my lane is empathy and love and compassion for someone I’ve called my son for 5 years. It’s God’s job to judge and it’s ours to love and hope, especially for those that we claim to have loved. There’s nothing more harmful than a fake friend! Real talk.” Meantime, Jussie has been cut from the final two episodes of “Empire.”

Jordyn Woods reportedly is blaming alcohol for her makeout session with Tristan Thompson. According to sources, Jordyn can’t handle her liquor and was blackout drunk when she stuck her tongue down Tristan’s throat. Will Khloe and Kylie forgive her if she truly didn’t realize what she was doing? Khloe has unfollowed Jordyn but still follows Tristan, while Kylie has unfollowed Tristan but still follows Jordyn. Meantime, a source told Hollywood Life that the same day Jordyn launched her false eyelash collection, she handed in her resume at Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR! “Vanderpump Rules” star James Kennedy even tweeted, “WAIT! @jordynwoods is at SUR right now handing in her resume I’m dead” with a crying laughing emoji.” We don’t know if this is rue or not because James does love to pull a prank. But it makes sense for her to want to be ultimately be on a reality show….but wouldn’t she have her agent contact Bravo?

R. Kelly turned himself into Chicago police Friday night but is still sitting in jail after failing to come up with 10 percent of his $1 million bail. He’s been charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse against four women, who claim they were abused between the years 1998-2010. Three of those women would have been minors at the time of the alleged abuse, and two of the women had R. Kelly’s DNA as evidence to support their claims. R. Kelly could face charges in other states, too. Lawyers in NY have been meeting with alleged victims. He’s due back in court on Thursday.
