Valenica Love’s Jobs Are Under Attack After She Bailed Out R. Kelly

Love on the Blu was promptly ripped with negative reviews on Yelp, a social networking site that lets users post reviews and rate businesses. “It sucks,” one commentator wrote about the restaurant. “But what sucks EVEN more is that the owner a WOMAN is SUPPORTING a CHILD MOLESTER. Let this place it’s bad food and morally poor owner go out of business.”

Another said, “It really will be our own. The fact that this BLACK WOMAN could bail out a rapist and an abuser is despicable. You own a children’s day care. You should be ashamed of yourself. He’s spent millions of dollars settling cases out of court. And you still think he’s innocent?! Every day you walk into your daycare I hope you realize you have failed those children”

The Yelp page says at the top, “This business is being monitored by Yelp’s Support team for content related to media reports.”

There were also calls for a boycott:

R. Kelly was bailed out of jail by his “friend,” Valencia Love on Monday. The 47-year-old, who is a corporate officer for a child care center and a manager of a restaurant, both in Chicago, has come under fire after paying the $100,000 bond. There have been calls for a boycott of the restaurant — Love on the Blu — and many were questioning how a woman who works with children could bring herself to bail out an accused pedophile.

In an interview on Tuesday with Chicago reporter Tia Ewing, Love defended herself by claiming she didn’t condone abuse and insisted the Grammy Award-winning singer needed a chance to “prove his innocence.”

“He’s not a monster, he’s not,” she said before adding, “He’s been nothing but a gentleman to me.” She also inferred that Kelly was innocent, saying in part that “There are three sides to every story, his side, there’s [sic] (the alleged victims, and the truth.

There may still be more trouble for Kelly. After his release from jail on Monday, Kelly, 52, drove straight to the flagship McDonald’s in Chicago’s River North, also known as the Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s. It was the same location where he allegedly met a teenager who he got pregnant before arranging for an abortion, according to Jim DeRogatis, the Chicago journalist who has been reporting on Kelly’s sex allegations for decades.

Among the conditions of his release from jail, the judge ordered Kelly not to have contact with females under 18. McDonald’s is, of course, in many places a haven for teenagers.

Patrice Jones, one of Kelly’s many accusers, sued the singer in 2002, years after he allegedly picked her up as a teenager at the same Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s in 1998. She claimed Kelly got her pregnant when she was underage and that he arranged for her to get an abortion, according to Jim DeRogatis, the Chicago journalist who has been reporting on Kelly’s sex allegations for decades.

Prison time might be sooner than later for Kelly.

Ralph ‘Blackface’ Northam’s Wife Gives Black Children Raw Cotton During Mansion Tour 2/28/2019

Birds of a racist feather flock together.

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam was in a blackface scandal earlier this month. Now, his wife is in a controversy after giving Black children raw cotton during a mansion tour.

According to ABC News, Virginia first lady Pam Northam “allegedly gave out raw cotton during a tour of the governor’s mansion and asked Black children to imagine being slaves who were forced to pick cotton.”

According to the Washington Post, Leah Dozier Walker, an employee of the state’s Department of Education, wrote a letter to lawmakers on Feb. 25 because her eight-grade daughter attended the tour. The letter read in part, “The Governor and Mrs. Northam have asked the residents of the Commonwealth to forgive them for their racially insensitive past actions. But the actions of Mrs. Northam, just last week, do not lead me to believe that this Governor’s office has taken seriously the harm and hurt they have caused African Americans in Virginia or that they are deserving of our forgiveness.”

Pam Northam appeared to defend herself in a statement by saying, “I have provided the same educational tour to Executive Mansion visitors over the last few months and used a variety of artifacts and agricultural crops with the intention of illustrating a painful period of Virginia history.  I am still committed to chronicling the important history of the Historic Kitchen, and will continue to engage historians and experts on the best way to do so in the future.”

She also said, “I regret that I have upset anyone. I believe it does a disservice to Virginians to omit the stories of the enslaved people who lived and worked there–that’s why I have been engaged in an effort to thoughtfully and honestly share this important story since I arrived in Richmond.”

In case you forgot, after a 1984 photo from Eastern Virginia Medical School went viral, which contained a photograph of two unidentified men, one in blackface and the other in a Ku Klux Klan costume under a page labeled as his, went viral, the Virginia governor Ralph Northam apologized.

However, he later said, according to CNN, that it wasn’t him in the photo, “I believe now and then that I am not either of the people in this photo. This was not me in that picture. That was not Ralph Northam.” He continued, “I intend to continue doing the business of Virginia. I could avoid an honest conversation about harmful actions from my past. I cannot in good conscience choose the path that would be easier for me in an effort to duck my responsibility to reconcile.”

Mother and daughter charged in ‘atrocious’ killing of five family members in Pennsylvania 2/28/2019

No one answered when a social worker knocked on the door.

Not Shana Decree or her three children. Not her sister or her three children.

All was quiet inside unit S-7 at Robert Morris Apartments – because most of the people who lived there were dead.

It’s not clear why the case worker was checking on the apartment in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, near the Delaware River. But when there was no response Monday afternoon, she asked a maintenance worker to unlock the door, according to court documents.

The scene inside was straight from nightmares: Overturned furniture, shattered glass and clutter throughout the home. Two disoriented women. And five bodies, including three children, in a backroom.

The details come from an affidavit for probable cause, which accuses Shana Selena Decree, 45, and her daughter, Dominique Klaran Decree, 19 – the two who were found alive – of killing the other five.

The two women are each facing five counts of criminal homicide and one count of conspiracy to commit criminal homicide.

It was not immediately clear whether who is representing them.

Authorities identified the victims as Shana Decree’s children Naa’Irah Smith, 25, and Damon Decree Jr., 13; Shana Decree’s sister, Jamilla Campbell, 42; and Campbell’s 9-year-old twin daughters, Imani and Erika Allen. Another relative, Campbell’s 17-year-old son, Joshua, has been found unharmed, police said.

Authorities said that there are no other suspects in the case.

“I am sure that you’re going to ask me why this has occurred and what the motivation is, and as confusing as it was night, we are no closer to understanding that in the harsh light of day,” Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said Tuesday during a news conference. “We will continue to pursue every lead and to work this case to its just conclusion. I expect that will be a long and laborious process, but we will always keep Naa’Irah, Damon, Jamilla, Erika and Imani first and foremost in our minds and our hearts as we work to get justice for them.”

Weintraub told reporters Tuesday that authorities are investigating the brutal massacre to determine how exactly the family members died, when it happened and why they may have been killed.

When asked whether it may have been a murder-suicide pact, the district attorney said it was a “potentiality.”

Police responded to the home about 4 p.m. Monday and found Shana and Dominique Decree “disoriented” in bed. The two were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, according to court records.

Meanwhile, according to the court records, police uncovered a gruesome scene in a backroom in the apartment – one person’s body was face-up on a bed, with his head toward the end and his right foot through the wall to the next room.

Another was on the bed, and one was sitting up against it. One of the children was on the floor. And one person was buried beneath another body.

During an interview with police, Shana and Dominique Decree denied knowing what had happened, then told police Campbell’s boyfriend and two other men had come into the apartment and killed the victims, according to the court records.

Later, Shana Decree told police the victims, including the three children, wanted to die and had been discussing suicide, according to the court records.

Ultimately, police said, Shana and Dominique Decree told investigators about a complicated plan that allegedly involved some of the victims killing each other – at least one of them being choked to death – and then Shana and Dominique Decree killing the rest of them, according to the court documents.

Authorities said the 17-year-old boy, who has since been found safe, was not at home during the killings.

Shana Decree was arraigned in the early hours of Tuesday morning and her daughter, Dominique, was arraigned in the afternoon. Both women are being held without bail, according to booking records.

“I just feel very confident that we have the two killers locked up that committed these atrocious, atrocious murders,” Weintraub, the district attorney, said.
