R. Kelly Breaks His Silence

“The Bachelor: Women Tell All”… Andrew Garfield dumped Rita Ora… Demi Lovato in the gym… Oprah is being skewered… and R. Kelly breaks his silence

If you were able to sit through the scream-fest that was “The Bachelor: Women Tell All” last night, things got really tense between Courtney and Demi. Courtney’s the one who never ever spoke to Colton and after she didn’t take Demi’s advice to go take care of business, Demi went back and talked to Colton again. Last night, things boiled over and Courtney stomped over to Demi and shoved a pacifier in her mouth. And by the way, Chris Harrison offered Courtney a chance to finally speak to Colton and she still had nothing. And where was fan favorite Elyse? She’s the redhead who put on her best dress to tell Colton she was leaving the show. Elyse chose friendship over fame and went to her friend’s wedding in Mexico. Apparently, this was scheduled before “The Bachelor” even started filming.

The Sun is reporting that after a very brief, whirlwind romance, Andrew Garfield dumped Rita Ora after four months of dating. He’s super private about his personal life and a source says that while Rita tried hard to keep things on the down low, he just didn’t want to deal with the attention. The source says she’s really “cut up” over it, but she’s currently on tour in Australia and it’s been a good distraction.

Demi Lovato went from being on death’s door last July to being strong enough to knock out a guy’s tooth! Demi has worked out at the Unbreakable Performance Gym for years and she started back up when she left rehab in November. She was boxing with the gym’s owner yesterday and punched him in the mouth so hard that he lost his front tooth — AND he was wearing a mouth guard! She posted the video on her Instagram if you want to see the aftermath. Demi was super embarrassed, but he was a really good sport about it! Meantime, Entertainment Tonight reports that Demi has finally broken up with that Henry Levi dude.

Oprah is getting skewered for interviewing Wade Robson and James Safechuck after their HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland” aired. Oprah said, “For me, this moment transcends Michael Jackson…This is a moment in time that allows us to see this societal corruption.” And she praised the director, Dan Reed, telling him that while she had taped 217 episodes of her talk show on the issue of sexual abuse, he was “able to illustrate in these four hours what I tried to explain in 217.”

For his first interview since being arrested on 10 counts of the aggravated criminal sexual assault of four women, three of whom were minors at the time, R. Kelly chose Gayle King. When Gayle asked him about holding girls and women against their will, R. Kelly said, “That’s stupid! Use your common sense! Forget the blogs. Forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to. Love me if you want. But just use your common sense.” R. Kelly said, “How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through — oh right now I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will and chain them up in my basement and don’t let them eat, don’t let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!” R. Kelly blubbered, “I’m fighting for my (BLANKING) life!” Part one of the interview aired today on “CBS This Morning .” Part two airs tomorrow. Gayle also spoke to the two women who are currently living with R. Kelly — Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage. That interview will air on Friday morning.
