De La Hoya said, “When he tackled a situation, whether it was politically driven, whether it was defending humanity, he never quit in the middle, he fought it through until the end.”

Shane Mosley praised Ali by saying, “He has inspired me a lot throughout my career by just being who he was. He represented so much strength within himself. He was the type of person that believes in himself all the way to the end, even when people doubted him.”

The documentary produced on the HBO platform is made of two parts directed by Antoine Faqua. The executive producers of this project are Maverick Carter and LeBron James Springhill Entertainment.

Faqua said it took him up to four years to gather all the audio and video footages to ensure that the story was told by the legend himself. He said, “Lonnie Ali helped us a lot. The family helped us a lot. But it was hard to find it and dig it up and audio as well. But about certain subjects, I wanted to cover. So you know I was editing, hoping I would find footage coverage about him talking about that moment.”

He had gone on a road trip with his mother, godmother, his good brother and a relative who he gave an alias, Brandon.

Brandon molested him at his aunt’s house on one of those nights. He tried pushing him away and remembers repeating the word “No” several times. Despite his pleas, Brandon continued on his quest saying “it’s okay” as he pulled down his shorts.

Japanese fabric company sues Kanye West

A Japanese fabric company has filed a lawsuit against A-list rapper and entrepreneur, Kanye West. The company is suing Ye on the grounds that he owes them thousands of dollars from the production of his Yeezy sneakers.

The company, Toki Sen-I Co., has alleged that West’s company made an order of fleece fabric worth over $600,000. The fabric was used for the production of the sneakers and the rapper’s company never paid up.

The Japanese company even alleged that the rapper tried to deceive them and avoid paying up by establishing a fake company. The suit filed is against Yeezy Apparel and Kanye West.

The court documents say that the lawsuit is the company’s response to West and Yeezy Apparel’s desire to dismiss the initial case filled.

Ye has responded by saying he is innocent and why the payment was not made was because the order was never delivered. The company fired saying the rapper is attempting to commit fraud using his celebrity status as an alibi. According to Toki, if this is not curbed, other companies could be defrauded in like manner.

They claim they tried settling with west out of court to no avail, so they are suing for $624,000 and storage costs. The case is still in court.

Feds seeking more R. Kelly sex tapes

It has been reported that the federal authorities are in search of more sex tapes involving R. Kelly, mostly the ones with teenage girls.

Already the US Attorney’s Office and the Northern District of Illinois are already speaking with different people to find out if tapes showing Kelly having sexual relations with minors were available. Most of the parties spoken are closely associated with the embattled singer.

According to TMZ, there have been rumors about a collection of sex tapes of the singer with underage girls. The rumors first began circulating when he was tried for child porn in 2008. He wasn’t found guilty of the charges at the time.

In February, the singer was indicted for several charges relating to sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse, and having sex with minors. He was granted bail after the bond of $1 million was paid by someone who claimed to be his friend.

We wait to see the result of the current investigations but we already know that the singer has been bashed from several angles for his sexual assault issues which cropped up as a result of a documentary series aired at the beginning of the year, Surviving R. Kelly.

Hudson and Otunga should have already faced the judges on March 19 but their attorneys held off this appearance. This was necessary so that both parties could settle out of court. It, however, looks like they couldn’t strike a deal so they will be seeing in court on August 5.

According to The Blast, “Otunga also recently filed a motion for sanctions against Hudson but the filing is sealed, so it’s unclear what he is accusing the singer of doing.

Back in 2017, Jennifer Hudson filed for an emergency order of protection accusing Otunga of pushing her while holding their son David. The court granted the temporary request but Hudson would later drop the petition altogether. Otunga has always denied the allegations.”

The Ex-couple ended their relationship in 2017 after being engaged for about 8 years. The court documents also revealed that David Otunga was the primary caregiver to David Jnr. while the relationship lasted. Hudson has denied the claim stating that he was on tour with the WWE for the most of the time.
