Did money troubles get Singer R Kelly evicted from his home? A property management company has reportedly filed in Fulton County that two homes Kelly rented in the Atlanta area are $31,000 behind in rent.

There are also no criminal notices with this eviction although Fulton County’s D.A. office is reviewing a police file on the cult allegations.
Taraji P. Henson and her Baby Boy Director, Oscar Nominee John Singleton, will reunite for the big screen. Henson is producing and starring in a film on the brief life of Emmett Till. Till was the black teenager tortured to death in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman named Carolyn Bryant. Bryant’s husband Roy and his brother J.W. Milam were acquitted by an all-white jury of murder and kidnapping though they confessed to the lynching after the trial years before their deaths. Carolyn Bryant is still alive and has reportedly confessed to a journalist that she lied about her encounter with Till. She’s never been charged with a crime. Taraji P. Henson says she’s been interested in bringing the story to the big screen since the black teen Trayvon Martin was shot to death by George Zimmerman, who was also acquitted of murder. Henson reports there’s no start date yet, but the John Singleton is set to direct and the deal has been signed.
