R. Kelly Legal Team Bombshell ‘He Can’t Read’

CHICAGO, IL. (THECOUNT) — According to legal documents, R. Kelly “suffers from a learning disability that adversely affects his ability to comprehend,” adding, “in essence, he cannot read.”

The embattled crooner’s legal team told a judge why they believe he unlawfully lost his recent sexual abuse civil case, he couldn’t read the documents thus prepare.

Zaid Abdallah and Raed Shalabi, Kelly’s attorneys, filed legal docs claiming the singer was served in the civil case claiming he abused 16-year-old Heather Williams. Kelly was in Cook County Jail at the time for failing to pay child support and should not have been served there.

Kelly’s team claims, he had no idea what the legal papers were all about, so he didn’t take the appropriate steps after being served to defend himself.

The new legal docs also blast the fact Kelly was served while incarcerated, claiming Williams’ lawyers could have easily served Kelly’s criminal lawyer or delivered the docs to Trump Towers where he lives. Williams’ lawyer has said security at his residence made that impossible, but Kelly’s attorney calls BS on that, reports TMZ.

Williams won a default judgment against Kelly when he failed to appear for a hearing in the case.

Kelly’s legal team is asking the court to vacate the decision so he can properly mount his defense this time around. No word on if that include learning how to read.

Chuck E. Cheese’s Accused “Recycling” Uneaten Pizza Slices Then Sold To Unsuspecting Customers

IRVING, TX. (THECOUNT) — A newly released video claims Chuck E. Cheese’s is participating in a sort of “pizza slice recycling” program, a charge that the restaurant is now denying.

A YouTube video series by Shane Dawson, alleges that the popular kids themed eatery “recycles pizza slices that go uneaten by customers,” resulting in reconstructed pies that don’t quite align.

In the video, Dawson alleges that slices and slice lines do not line up, with pepperonis along slice lines not having a match on an adjoining slice, and so on.

Dawson claims this is because employees bring uneaten pizza back into the kitchen, combine it with other pizzas, and use extra cheese as a way to blend it all together.

A spokesperson for Chuck E. Cheese’s tells The Verge that Dawson’s claims are untrue:

The claims made in this video about Chuck E. Cheese’s and our pizza are unequivocally false. No conspiracies here — our pizzas are made to order and we prepare our dough fresh in restaurant, which means that they’re not always perfectly uniform in shape, but always delicious. source

Dawson’s claims could not be independently confirmed.

Manti Teo

Dr. Phil just scored HUGE — TMZ has learned, he’s landed the first on-camera interview with the alleged mastermind behind the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax … Ronaiah Tuiasosopo.

Sources tell us, Phil and Ronaiah sat together for several hours yesterday in L.A., where they discussed Manti’s interview with Katie Couric … after watching the entire interview together.

According to sources, Phil’s interview with Ronaiah is “emotional and deep.” It’s expected to air some time next week.

Ronaiah has yet to address the public about his alleged involvement in the Manti hoax — even though Manti has already said Ronaiah privately confessed to concocting the whole thing.

TMZ broke the story … Ronaiah had intense feelings for Manti — feelings he channeled through the female persona of “Lennay Kekua” … Manti’s fake girlfriend.
