D'Angelo

The spell of good fortune cast by Voodoo has long since worn off for D'Angelo. According to the Associated Press:

D'Angelo wrapped up a prostitution case Friday by pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, ending one of the Grammy Award-winning R&B singer's series of run-ins with the law since his heyday a decade ago.

D'Angelo, 37, said nothing as he left a Manhattan courthouse and hastened to a black SUV. Disorderly conduct is a violation, not a crime.

He was arrested in March 2010 behind the wheel of a Range Rover after police said he tried to pay $40 for a sex act to an undercover officer posing as a prostitute.
