The commander of a US submarine was relieved of his duty after he admitted to naval authorities that he hired 10 prostitutes while docked in the Philippines, a Washington state newspaper reported this week.
Capt. Travis Zettel blabbed to two other sailors at a hotel pool in the Philippines that he hired nearly a dozen prostitutes on March 1, the Kitsap Sun reported, citing documents uncovered through a Freedom of Information Act request.
R&B singer R. Kelly had his application to host a home state concert denied over “security concerns,” reports CBS News.
The Illinois Department of Agriculture rejected the request for a concert in Springfield citing protests held outside the singer’s Chicago studio which erupted following the airing of a Lifetime documentary series called Surviving R. Kelly which alleges sexual misconduct involving underage girls.
The singer lives in Trump Tower Chicago, which was searched by cops on Friday after a tip was called in accusing him of holding women hostage. (The women reportedly told police they were there of their own free will.)
