In concert with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• R. Kelly isn’t going to jail for missing a Wednesday court date. However, the trial date has been set for May 9. Additionally, the singer must cancel a Virginia concert date on January 13 to ensure he makes a January 14 court date. The judge didn’t completely forbid Kelly from touring, claiming it would adversely affect show workers and folks who bought tickets. Sounds like the judge has tickets.
• The friend allegedly shot by Remy Ma filed an $80 million lawsuit against the artist. The suit charges the shooting was part of a “pattern of harassment, threats, intimidation, physical violence and illegal acts” by Remy Ma that record labels encouraged to “promote the ‘Remy Ma’ persona.” Wow, if this suit works, there will be trouble for lots of record labels.
• Circuit City saw 3Q losses balloon to $207.3 million. “Clearly we are very dissatisfied,” said the retailer’s chief executive. Maybe Circuit City should change its tagline from “Simplicity Guaranteed” to “Bankruptcy Guaranteed.”
