Word On the Curb: Fri, Aug 16th “R Kelly Was A No Show In Court, ‘Refused Transport’; Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith ‘Sick Of’ Living Up To The Perfect Idea Of Marriage’; Shaquille O’Neal and Ex-wife Shaunie ‘Working On’ Reconciling”


R Kelly Was A No Show In Court, ‘Refused Transport’

R Kelly did not appear in court after he “refused transport” from jail cell to state court. Cook County Judge Lawrence Flood wanted to know why Kelly didn’t make it court and was told by Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Gonzalez,

“The defendant was to be brought to court today. That was all worked out. The sheriffs were going to be bringing him over. As I understand it, he refused transport and so that is why the defendant is not before your honor today”.

 Steve Greenberg, Kelly’s defense lawyer  said that’s “not 100-percent true” but did not explain why his client didn’t appear for the hearing.

“I don’t want to discuss matters that I discussed with the U.S. Marshals Service in open court.

 Suffice it to say, the Marshal Service says that moving Mr. Kelly is a large undertaking.”

Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith ‘Sick Of’ Living Up To The Perfect Idea Of Marriage’

From fighting off divorce rumors to explaining how they redefined marriage in a way that works for them, Will and Jada have been more open about their marriage this year. Jada explained why it was important for Will to make an appearance on her Red Table Talk show.

 “What was really important about Will and I doing that show together — two things — first of all was to get rid of the idea that people in the public eye have perfect relationships. We were kind of sick of living up to that. We were real sick of it.”

Now that they’ve shared their story, Jada said they’re out here saving other marriages.

“And also Will being the successful guy that he is and being willing to share what his pitfalls were in the relationship and in his family, you can’t imagine how many other successful men called and said, ‘Wow, my wife has been saying the same thing for years. Because you said it, it opened my eyes and because you said it, now I’m willing to listen.’”

Jada said now that she’s taking time for herself in her marriage, she’s happier now than she’s ever been before.

Will shared the true ups and downs of their marriage.

“Externally our family was winning. There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight. I started keeping a diary. It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I’ve ever felt in our marriage. I was failing miserably… I felt that money and winning made a good relationship.”

Shaquille O’Neal and Ex-wife Shaunie ‘Working On’ Reconciling

Since their split in 2009, the two have remained close friends but it’s not until recently that she has been open to the possibility of them rekindling the flame.

Sources say, “Shaunie wasn’t taking Shaq’s flirting seriously, she thought he was joking. But now that she knows he’s serious [about reconciling] she’s giving him a second chance.”

Last year, Shaquille wrote a sweet tribute in honor of their wedding when he launched his big and tall suit line through JCPenney.

Rumors began to spread back in June when the two seen getting cozy during a family dinner at Mastro’s in Beverly Hills.
