Drake Shows Off Temporary House While New Toronto Home Is Being Built
(FreshAsFrankie) Album after album and tour after tour, Drake has been moving along steadily in his career. Now, the rapper wants to take advantage of his hard work by having a new mansion built in one of the more wealthy communities in Canada. He still needs a place to stay in the meantime until construction is underway, which led the rapper to show off his new space until the work on his future home is done.

Via a video, Drake said “You know, sometimes when you’re out here on the road, [you] forget the importance of having a home. I just came home to a new temporary spot until my house is built, but it’s still my home for now. I’m very inspired, very excited. This just has me ready to work.“ The rapper went on to show a room in the temporary spot that he plans on turning into a studio. The room features a neon sign that says “Less Drake, More Tupac.” Take a look above.

Underage Woman Paid by R. Kelly to Keep Silent Speaks Out

Underage Woman Paid by R. Kelly to Keep Silent Speaks Out
(FreshAsFrankie) A little more than a month after it was alleged R. Kelly is keeping women in a cult in two of his homes, here comes another upsetting allegation— another woman claims she and R. Kelly continued to have sex after she told him she was underage.

24-year-old Jerhonda Pace (which is her married name) told Buzzfeed she met Kelly when she was 15-year-old Jerhonda Johnson and started sleeping with him the next year. Pace claims the singer gave her an undisclosed sum of money in exchange for signing a non-disclosure agreement.

Unfortunately, these types of allegations against R. Kelly are nothing new. Here’s the kicker– the two met when Pace was a fan and attended his 2008 child pornography trial. That’s where one of The Pied Piper‘s employees friended her on MySpace and invited her to a party at his mansion. Pace initially lied about her age, telling him she was 19. Recalling her encounters, Pace said he used to make her call him “daddy” and he would call her “baby.” Pace also stated she had to “have two pigtails and make her wear little school girl outfits.” She alleged their encounters were filmed without her permission. Pace also stated Kelly was abusive in other ways, choking, slapping and spitting on her.

In July 2009, Pace says she told R. Kelly, she was really 16, and he said it was ok. The age of consent in Illinois is 17. He instructed her to “act 25” and if anyone else asked about her age, tell them she was 19.

Pace says she has decided to come forward now out of concern for other women who might still be abused by the R&B crooner.
