KELLY was found guilty yesterday of all nine counts he was facing in his sex trafficking case. In addition to trafficking, the charges included racketeering, bribery, coercion, and enticement. There were also 14 “underlying acts” including sexual exploitation of a child and kidnapping. He could be looking at DECADES behind bars. The charges involved six female victims including the late AALIYAH, who married Kelly when she was just 15 years old. During their case, the prosecution called dozens of witnesses, including both male and female accusers who said they were groomed for sex, and were psychologically abused. Kelly’s attorneys said they’re “extraordinarily disappointed” in the verdict, and will continue to, quote, “fight on R. Kelly’s behalf.” This was Kelly’s New York case, by the way. He’s still facing charges in both Chicago and Minnesota (LINK)

Netflix Co-CEO Ted Sarandos dismissed Apple TV+’s Emmy-winning comedy “Ted Lasso” as “an awards-y show” that probably had a comparably small audience. He also said that the just-released “Squid Game” (a non-English Korean game show) is on track to be (LINK) its biggest show ever
“Tiger King 2” is coming to Netflix before the end of the year, and CAROLE BASKIN is NOT happy about it. Carole did NOT take part in this one. She says the director said they wanted to “clear the air” about how she was treated in the first “Tiger King”, but she told them to LOSE HER NUMBER. Netflix isn’t saying much about “TK2” yet, but obviously, JOE EXOTIC could only participate from BEHIND BARS.
JAMIE FOXX wants to remake STEPHEN KING’s “Misery” based on something that actually happened to him. “Misery” is about a writer who is saved from a car wreck by a lady who claims to be his “biggest fan” . . . but instead of helping him, she holds him CAPTIVE, and things just get worse from there. So with Jamie . . . he spent an evening with a couple who won the opportunity at a charity auction. He says, quote, “You know what an actor loves more than money? Compliments. I was supposed to be there for 30 minutes . . . I ended up staying there for two hours . . . doing [crap] from ‘Ray’. “But then it got weird. So I built [the ‘Misery’ remake] upon that.” He didn’t disclose anything else that the couple did . . . I guess we’ll have to wait to see if this remake happens (LINK)
WILL SMITH says in “GQ” that he and Jada started out monogamous, but “evolved” past it. He says, quote, “Jada never believed in conventional marriage . . . Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up.” He adds, quote, “We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison.”Oh, and remember all that chaos over Jada’s, quote, “entanglement” with rapper AUGUST ALSINA? Well, it turns out Will had an entanglement of his own. But he didn’t elaborate.
Grimes and Elon Musk are “semi-separated,” “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms,” Musk said. “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in L.A. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.” Grimes and Elon Musk first publicly revealed their relationship (LINK) at the 2018 Met Gala. In May 2020, Grimes gave birth to their son X Æ A-XII (LINK).

WILLIAM SHATNER is going to ride JEFF BEZOS’ giant rocket into orbit next month. And he’ll film it for a documentary. At 90 years old, that’ll make him the oldest person ever to go to space. The previous record was just set back in July, when 82-year-old WALLY FUNK rode Bezos’ giant rocket. But one website pointed out another interesting angle: Shatner will be the first WWE Hall of Famer in space.
A British man named Ty Jones is such a dead ringer lookalike for ED SHEERAN that he has to use disguises to hide from crazy fans. His experience with Ed groupies have ranged from, quote “fans crying and shaking” to a, quote, “cyclist who couldn’t stop looking and crashed their bike while still making eye contact.” To avoid the mistaken fans, Ty wears the classic celebrity disguise: a hat, sunglasses, and a face mask. Don’t feel bad for him though . . . he said he gets sent free stuff and is let into clubs and restaurants as a VIP. Ty has met Ed before back in 2011 and they’re supposed to meet again soon over Zoom. Ty said, quote, “I aspire to master his songs and become a tribute act . . . and also keep trying my hand at acting or different roles in the future.” (LINK)
DEMI LOVATO had an alien experience in Joshua Tree that was “beautiful and incredible.” They said, quote, “We went out into the desert and I basically saw this blue orb that was about 50 feet away . . . it was kind of floating above the ground, just like 10 or 15 feet, and it was kind of keeping its distance from me.” Demi said this encounter has changed the way they see the world . . . so much so, that it inspired their new series about aliens. “Unidentified with Demi Lovato” comes out Thursday on Peacock. In it, Demi, Demi’s sister, and their friend are trying to uncover the truth about UFO phenomena and what really happened with that blue orb. After all, Demi believes aliens live among us. Quote, “[They are] very caring, very intelligent beings that are just looking out for the best interest of our planet.” (LINK)

When Dak Prescott ran out for pregame warmup, those inside AT&T Stadium cheered. When he returned in full pads, the cheers were louder. When he was announced with the starting offense before kickoff, it was even louder. Playing in his first home game in 351 days after suffering a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle, Prescott helped deliver the Cowboys to a 41-21 thrashing of the Eagles on Monday by completing 21 of 26 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns.
Former All-Pro wide receiver Josh Gordon, who recently was informed that he is being reinstated, is planning to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs. Gordon was flying to Kansas City last night and was expected to be signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad with the expectation that a promotion to the active roster will follow shortly thereafter. Gordon, who is 30, had multiple teams contact him and express interest in signing him. But one of the attractions of playing in Kansas City was making it a long-term stop and spending multiple seasons there. The Chiefs have been searching for a wide receiver who can play every down along with Tyreek Hill since losing Sammy Watkins as a free agent in the spring.
The Denver Nuggets and forward Michael Porter Jr. have agreed on a five-year designated max extension that could be worth up to $207 million.

A pair of Michael Jordan’s USED boxers were on the auction block over the weekend . . . and someone snapped them up for $2,784. Okay, they probably weren’t too gross . . . because they came with a dry-cleaning tag. But according to the listing, they showed evidence of “definite use.” The drawers were provided by Jordan’s friend and bodyguard John Michael Wozniak, who appeared in that “Last Dance” documentary. He also provided some suits, coats, dress shirts, and ties for the auction.
Tyron Woodley got an “I love Jake Paul” tattoo on his left middle finger, as part of the wager he and Paul agreed to before and after their boxing match last month. Woodley posted a photo of the tattoo on his Instagram on Monday. “I love you son,” Woodley wrote. “Now come and get this a– whippin cause i heard you been talking back to your elders.” Paul had said Woodley had eliminated himself from the running to be Paul’s next opponent because he did not get the tattoo. Woodley was angling for a rematch, and in the aftermath of their Aug. 29 fight — won by Paul via split decision — Paul said he’d grant the rematch if Woodley got the tattoo. Woodley agreed and they shook hands on it. Woodley getting the tattoo now puts him back in play for the rematch.
