R. Kelly's attorney says "all the women are lying" after singer surrenders to Chicago police 

Scott Olson/Getty ImagesR. Kelly turned himself in to Chicago police late Friday night after being charged earlier in the day with 10 counts of felony criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims, according to the Cook County Prosecutor's Office.

Three of the four victims were younger than 17 at the time of the alleged incidents, according to prosecutors.

At a post-surrender press conference, Kelly's attorney Steve Greenberg dismissed the new charges and called the accusers liars.

Asked whether he thought all the women who accused the singer were making up their allegations, Greenberg said he does.

"I think all the women are lying, yes," he told reporters late Friday night. "This has become 'Hey -- I can say R. Kelly did something' -- boom...Everybody's trying to profit off R. Kelly. 'Hey, I met R. Kelly once, look, oh he looked me at the wrong way -- boom -- money!"

Greenberg went on to claim that Cook County, Illinois State Attorney Kim Foxx indicted the singer in response to public pressure.

"We were supposed to meet next week and have a discussion about what they had," he said. "I was going be allowed to address what they had.  Then they just decided to indict him today for whatever reason. I suspect this is succumbing to public pressure."

Asked about a videotape that attorney Michael Avenatti says he turned over to Foxx -- which purportedly shows Kelly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl -- Greenberg said he hadn't seen the tape. 

Avenatti says he is representing six clients in the R. Kelly matter.

Kelly, who is "shell shocked," according to his attorney, is scheduled to appear in bond court Saturday in Chicago, according to a CPD spokesman. 

The spokesman also tweeted that Kelly would be fingerprinted, photographed and processed Friday night and remain in Chicago police custody. Saturday morning, he'll take a prisoner transport to court, where custody will be transferred to the Sheriff of Cook County.

The R&B star, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, is also facing investigations from at least three different federal law enforcement agencies including at least one examining his alleged relationships with underage girls and whether they were trafficked, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News.

The investigations, by the FBI, Homeland Security Investigations and the IRS, have opened in the six weeks since Lifetime aired Surviving R. Kelly, a docuseries about the decades’ worth of misconduct allegations against the singer.

Kelly’s attorney has previously said his client never intentionally had sex with an underage girl, nor mistreated anyone or held anyone against her will.

Report: Fabolous is nearing a plea deal in domestic violence case 

Jerritt Clark/Getty ImagesFabolous's domestic violence saga has reportedly come to a close, Bossip reports. 

According to the celebrity site, the Brooklyn-born rapper is nearing a plea deal which will require him admitting to assaulting his longtime partner Emily B in exchange for no jail time.

Fab, however, will have to attend a mandatory "pre-trial intervention" consisting of a series of domestic violence prevention workshops that will last between six months and a few years. If the "Uptown" lyricist manages to stay out of trouble, then he'll have the charges expunged from his criminal record. 

As previously reported, the rapper was accused of punching out Emily's teeth during an heated exchange late last year. According to his indictment, Fabolous later threatened to shoot Emily, the mother of his two children, and also brandished a pair of scissors, again threatening to harm her. 

Fab, however, has maintained his innocence since pleading not guilty in October 2018.

Lifetime responds to R. Kelly indictment, as details of criminal sex abuse charges are revealed

Noam Galai/Getty ImagesIt's probably safe to say that if Lifetime hadn't aired its docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, the singer, who was indicted today, would not currently be facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.  Now, Lifetime has responded to the news.

“We are proud that Lifetime was able to provide a platform for survivors to be heard," said the network in a statement to ABC News.  Investigations into the singer's more recent activities began after the docuseries once again brought to the forefront the allegations of abuse that have followed the singer for decades.

Kimberly Foxx, Cook County State's Attorney, announced the charges against R. Kelly, which involved four minor female victims.

There are four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving a victim, initial H.W., between May of 1998 and May of 1999. She was under the age of 17.

There are two counts involving a victim, initials R.L., between September of 1998 and September of 2001.  She was also under the age of 17.  The third victim, L.C. was involved in an incident in February of 2003. Her age was not stated.

Finally, there are an additional three counts involving a fourth victim, J.P., between May of 2009 and January of 2010. She was also under the age of 17.

According to a press release from Foxx's office, most of the incidents involved some kind of sexual contact between Kelly and the minors; one involved bodily fluids.

Aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a class 2 felony with a sentencing range of three to seven years per count.

The singer is set for a bond hearing on Saturday afternoon.

Pink, Dua, Kelly & Brandi: Female artists fangirl over each other 

Jeff Spicer/Getty ImagesKelly Clarkson and Dua Lipa may be Grammy-winning global pop stars, but they're not above turning into total fangirls when they encounter their favorite stars online or in real life.

At the BRIT Awards earlier this week, Best British Single winner Dua got a chance to meet her all-time idol, Pink, who was there to perform and receive the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award. 

Dua posted a photo of them together, and wrote, "I met my idol last night and it was nothing short of perfect. It’s so nice to meet someone you’ve always looked up to, who’s music has always been there for you and know they are everything you imagined. Thank you @Pink for being the realest. I feel so lucky."

To which Pink replied, simply, "You’re the bestest!!!!"  She also posted Dua's photo on Instagram and added, "This girl is the real f****** deal right here. I was so happy to meet her."

Meanwhile, while on tour, Kelly Clarkson performed a cover version of "The Joke," the Grammy-winning song by Brandi Carlile, which Brandi performed at the Grammys.  The song is quite difficult to sing, but Brandi gave the performance a thumbs-up. Retweeting an article about it, she wrote, "Nailed it!"

To which Kelly replied, "I didn’t nail it  BUT I tried and I love you and wish I could cover your songs every night #LookingOut has been my jam for years girl, along with most of your catalogue."

By the way, Kelly's not the only celebrity fan of Brandi Carlile. President Barack Obama famously include "The Joke" on a playlist of his favorite songs of 2017, and her songs have been covered by Adele, among others.

Mike Shinoda clarifies comments regarding possible new Linkin Park singer 

ABC/Randy HolmesMike Shinoda has clarified the comments he made regarding the possibility of Linkin Park continuing with a new singer replacing the late Chester Bennington.

Speaking recently to Germany's Rock Antenne radio station, Shinoda said that finding a new vocalist is "not my goal right now," but added that if the band were to "find somebody that is a great person that we think is a good personality fit and a good stylistic fit," then he could "see trying to do some stuff with somebody."

Apparently, some people took that to mean "Linkin Park is actively searching for a new singer," which Shinoda is now refuting.

"Lemme clarify a rumor: we are not looking for a new singer, and if it were to happen organically, I'd be open," Shinoda tweeted. "Seems pretty clear, yet I guess some folks have a hard time understanding."

"I'm not into predicting the future. The future will happen," he continued. "Stop making s*** up."

Linkin Park last played together during the star-studded Bennington memorial concert in October 2017. Since then, Shinoda has been touring solo behind his new album, Post Traumatic.

A second Celine Dion movie is in the works, "Celine Before Celine"

John Shearer/Getty Images via ABCThere’s already one Celine Dion film in the works...so why not make it two?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a biopic about the singer called Celine Before Celine is set to start filming in 2020.

The film, from Quebec director Marc-Andre Lavoie, will follow Celine’s early life before she found stardom, and it has the blessing of the Dion family. Celine’s nephew, Jimmy Dion, will be a screenwriter on the project.

The family has also given Lavoie access to family testimonies and archives related to Celine's upbringing as one of 14 children in French-speaking Quebec.

In a letter Celine sent to the filmmakers, she wrote, ''I wanted to let you know just how much I was touched by the film that you are preparing. With your unique approach, you managed to seize the essence of a period that is very dear to my heart."

As previously reported, another Celine-related movie is coming to the big screen called The Power of Love. It won’t be a biopic, however. Variety reports it will be a fictional “homage” to Celine, using her hit songs, and it will be loosely based on her life.
