After a Romeoville, Illinois businesswoman, Valencia Love, posted R. Kelly’s bail with $100,000 cashier’s check, wearing a blue puffer jacket, the embattled crooner  was released from Chicago’s 7,000 inmate jail in the early evening on February 25. Raising the six figures was not easy. A source close to Kelly told reporters last year that the embattled crooner told him that he had “zero dollars in the bank” because he “trusted the wrong people” who took advantage of him. A source tells me that one of R Kelly’s friends tried to get him released on February 22, but was trying to pay the bail with two credit cards which was unacceptable. The friend somehow supposedly was able to pay Love with the cards, who then attained the check, which would be one form of payment. Upon leaving jail, R. Kelly reportedly went to McDonald’s for dinner and then headed to Biggs Mansion, a cigar lounge on Chicago’s Gold Coast. He is due back in court March 16………….

I hear that the Verizon Foundation, in partnership with NYC Media Lab, announced the 10 winners of the Verizon 5G EdTech Challenge. The ten winning organizations will receive a total of $1 million, and the winning teams will get access to Verizon’s 5G Labs and support from Verizon engineers and mentors to enhance their solutions. The Verizon Foundation plans to bring select projects to life in schools starting this fall. I also hear that the Verizon Foundation announced the commitment to being the first to bring 5G connectivity and curriculum to up to ten Verizon Innovative Learning Schools across the country at the start of the next school year. What a timely – and necessary-initiative!………

Crown Jamie Foxx the King of this year’s Oscar parties. The Oscar winner hosted Byron Allen’s Third annual Entertainment Studio Oscar Gala supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where he reportedly told the audience that he is single. From there he hit the Vanity Fair Bash, then headed to the Mercedes Benz Awards Viewing Party at the Four Seasons Hotel. Kelly Rowland and Anthony Anderson were also in the house. By the time Foxx hit Jay-Z and Beyonce’s post-Oscar soiree at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, he had a date. The busy actor escorted Gossip Girl Alum Jessica Szohr into the event. Sources say the two have been chummy since 2017. Other celebs partying with Hova and Bey included Rihanna wearing a leopard ruffled mini-dress and Adele………


 Coach announced the release of “Words Matter,” a short film directed by Oscar winner Spike Lee, starring global face of Coach menswear, actor/producer Michael B. Jordan. Shot in the desert outside Los Angeles this past fall, the short film features a strong poetic narrative that speaks to Coach’s values of inclusion, optimism and courage. Emphasizing the importance of these values today, its purpose-driven concept reinforces what the brand stands for. “Collaborating with the iconic Spike Lee on this short film for Coach was an inspirational experience,” Jordan said. “Spike’s art has moved the cultural dial for decades.”……
