Stevie Wonder We've learned Stevie Wonder's son, Keita Morris, was popped by LAPD early Monday morning on charges of felony domestic violence.

Law enforcement sources tell us they received a call about a verbal argument between Morris and an unidentified woman -- and that the argument turned physical. We're told when cops arrived they noticed marks on the woman and took Morris into custody.

He was held on $50,000 bond, which he posted later Monday morning.

Morris is Wonder's son from former girlfriend Yolanda Simmons.

what it do nephew    

since he is the son of a celebrity, the judge will ask Stevie if he SEEN any type of abuse. Stevie will be under oath and will testify with the truth stating, "no your honor, i never SEEN my son beat any woman". the final verdict will be: son of celebrity goes home free.

The REAL DEAL    

What is unusual about a black man having a name different from his mom or father - isn't it common practice in the black community that actually knowing who fathers a baby is not accepted - - -

Stevie Wonder was born Steveland Hardaway Judkins but later changes his last name to Morris. Do you think if one of 50 cents bastard children carries the last name of CENT?

having a different name from your father or mother is a not so un-common practice for ALL ethnicities, however, u can't have too many different last names when your children are by your father, uncle, or cousin, as is common practice in the caucasian community

Now let's see how far this a taken.I wonder if he will receive the scrutiny that Chris Brown is receiving. Oh wait...because Morris' girlfriend is not a celebrity, 9 times out of 10 no one will really care. I'm anxious to see how this situation plays out.
