R. Kelly Gets Pissy Over Pushy Lawyer

6/2/2008 3:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With his lawyers playing legal ping-pong with prosecutors in his kiddie-porn trial, R. Kelly is getting hassled by lawyers who aren't even going after him.

As the Chicago Tribune reports, a random lawyer guy named Mike Roman tried to push his own CD on Kelly as he sat alone at the defense table. With "a polite smile," Kelly said he wasn't allowed to take anything and refused the disc. The lawyer tried again and again, but Kelly – citing his gag order – insisted the lawyer leave him alone.

When other lawyers noticed the chat, Roman was taken away and briefly detained.

JT Rockin' Jessica's World – For Real?

So you've heard this one before, we know, but it looks like Justin Timberlake might be rock-shopping for Jessica Biel – and this is no geological survey.

The Chicago Sun-Times quotes "a usually impeccable Hollywood tipster" who says that JT has been doing some "serious, major Harry Winston-type" spelunking for an engagement ring for his girl. He's also been quizzing Jess's pals and associates to help him make the right choice.

The pair's reps have continually denied any engagement talk.

George's Ex Already Private Dancing?

It looks like George Clooney's ex-GF isn't wasting much time moving on from her year-plus-long relationship with Georgie boy.

Sarah Larson was red-hot on the town, "dancing seductively" as Vegas Confidential reports, for an ex-boyfriend (not George) at grand opening of Palms Place Hotel and Spa Saturday night. It was the first time she'd been out in public since splitting from Clooney.

A friend of Sarah's ex-ex, a local exec, says Larson and the guy are "just good friends."

Evidence that lip-synching and childbearing do not mix: Ashlee Simpson has postponed her summer tour after announcing her pregnancy last week. ...

We're hoping for frosting, next. ... John Mayer has added dates for his summer tour that begins July 2 in Milwaukee, and you'll be able to choose encore songs on his site

R. Kelly, you are going down. Sara Larsen is just going on with her life. George is and always will be a flake. Ashlee is scare that no one will showup to listen to recordings.

I really think George Clooney is a "man's man", same as Kevin Spacey. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

I think Clooney dumped his gal-pal 'cause he no longer needs any eye-candy now that all of the major red-carpet events are over for the season. Bet he picks up another so-called "girlfriend" by next year's events. It's no wonder it didn't work out, I mean he is an Oscar-winning actor w/mega-bucks and she was what? A common waitress who just happened to clean up nicely? Who wouldn't clean-up w/all of those designer originals? After all, you can only walk the red carpet with your guy friends for so long before people are going to start asking, what's up?

Sara is finally free to have hetero sex in public. George Clooney is gay and she was a fascade for a year. That takes it's toll and she needs to let it out. He is such a phoney. When will he come out of the closet. Everyone knows.

I'd like to say so what if sarah was a real person in society,I feel she left her real life for him and this is where she ended up,dumped after a wasted year of her time,who wants to go out with a player like mr clooney!!!!!!!!!!!! illonois person is obviously a idiot or also a player himself,r kelly needs to face the music after 6 years of trying to put it off and who cares about Jt with jessica biel boring!!! Apparently ashlee simpson only became pregnant on purpose because she has no real singing career,so that worked out for her!! john mayer is also nothing but a player he's a waste of time also,wake up jennifer!!!

Hey, "wow" I doubt jet-setting around the globe, wearing and dinning at the very best establishments was a "waste of time" as you say. So, if Clooney wanted to take you out of your otherwise boring life, you'd say no? I think not. Some get to live it, others such as yourself can only read about. Read it and weep! Why am I an idiot? I see you had your say, right? Don't knock what you yourself are doing too. Since you claim most guys are players, you must have some real issues w/guys!

I guess all those who write from Illinois are "common".
Sarah Larson aside, there is no such thing as a "common waitress".
The word "common" is demeaning and was used in such a way.
Common thoughts from a common mind.

I agree. Mr. Illinois needs to get his act together.
