Kelly's 14-year-old child Jaya came out as a transgender boy and changed his name to Jay. He was asked about it during a live interview but didn't exactly come across as supportive. Kelly implied that the news of his son was a rumor that wasn't to be believed, despite the fact that Jay came out personally, in his own words. R. Kelly added at the end, "You gotta know there's a back story. There's a background. That's why you can't judge nobody."

Yesterday, we told you that Hope Solo was arrested for domestic assult. First of all, it sounds like there wasn't some crazy party at Hope's house after all. In fact, Hope showed up to Hope's sister and her nephew's house. Yes, she was drunk, and she was also angry that she'd missed a flight. Hope somehow got the idea that her nephew was talking smack about her, so she started cussing him out. So he called out to his mom, which prompted Hope to call him a p***y. Then he called her a c*** and she grabbed his hair and started whaling on him. So he went to his room to get a gun. It was an old gun that didn't actually work, but we assume Hope didn't know that. The kid pointed it at her, but she kept on coming! She finally left when he called the cops, but then she tried to get back in. That's when Hope's sister intervened, and caught a beating for her efforts. So the kid got a broom and started hitting Hope in the head with the handle, but she kept on coming!! Police finally got there and arrested Hope on domestic violence charges. Meanwhile, Hope appeared in court yesterday, where she pleaded not guilty to the charges. Her lawyer says she's the victim.
There are some interesting new details in the break up of Kendra Wilkinson and her husband Hank Baskett. In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, he cheated on her with a transsexual while she was pregnant. It allegedly happened when Kendra was eight months pregnant, and their daughter Alijah was just born last month, so this is pretty fresh. The woman in question goes by the name Ava London, and Hank allegedly became interested after seeing some of her many YouTube videos. They arranged to meet, and Hank helped Ava "finish", if you will. Then he gave her $500 and told her to keep in touch. But when the Jennifer Lopez / Casper Smart transsexual scandal broke, he got scared. He started calling her constantly, begging her not to blab. He used several different numbers to keep in contact with her, including a pay phone. He even gave her $2,000, and promised her another 5-grand to keep quiet. But Kendra apparently found out, and that's why Hank moved out last Friday.

Lady Gaga scrapped her video with R. Kelly for their song "Do What You Want" and now we definitely know why. We've seen a clip of the video and it's basically glorifying rape. R. Kelly plays a doctor, and Lady Gaga is the patient. It featured R. Kelly saying, "I'm putting you under and when you wake up, you're going to be pregnant." He's standing over Gaga, who's naked under a sheet. He reaches under the sheet, and Gaga starts moaning. That sequence is controversial enough on its own, not to mention the fact that it stars R. Kelly, and was shot by controversial photographer Terry Richardson, who have both been accused of being sexual predators. WARNING: The suggestive rape stuff aside, Gaga is showing a LOT of skin so this footage is definitely R-RATED!
