R. Kelly

Life for R&B singer R. Kelly hasn't been easy since the 48-year-old Chicago native was repeatedly accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with underage girls. Kelly settled a lawsuit filed against him in 1998 by a woman who claims he had sex with her when she was 15 and he was 24.

Then there was his illegal marriage to 15-year-old singer Aallyah, whom he met when she was only 12.

On Monday, Kelly sat down for a tense interview with The Huffington Post to discuss his latest album, The Buffet, which sold less than 10,000 copies.

Kelly was resistant to interviewer Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani's line of questioning from the start.

"If you want to leave you can certainly leave," said Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani.

"If the next question is something negative out of your mouth -- with all due respect, that's exactly what I'm gonna do," Kelly responded. "If I think it's negative, I'm gonna walk."

Things went left when the interviewer read aloud a tweet that brought up Kelly's past history with underaged girls.

"Would I let R. Kelly babysit my daughter? F*ck no," she said.

"So we can curse on this TV show?" Kelly asked.

"Yeah, absolutely. You can say whatever you want," Modarressy-Tehrani replied.

To which Kelly responded, “I say f*ck that."

tweet

Kelly defended himself, saying he sells out shows everywhere.

"IF I heard what you just said [at a show], I would never show up to that venue again," he said.

After some tense back and forth, Kelly got up to leave. "I love you," Kelly said, complimenting the interviewer. "You're so beautiful," he said.

"You don't have to comment on my appearance, sir," she said, flicking her bangs off her face -- a body language sign that confirmed she was indeed flattered by his compliment.

  • Buttercup

    I watched this interview in traffic yesterday. Kells said he muhfuggin tied

  • MS PEACHES

    I think the last jam I heard from him was about him "feeling single". I like it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    at this point Kells should work behind the scenes and get money .... more money in writing anyways ..... I would be lying if I didn't admit r and b needs a male artist like Kells real talk .......

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    This interviewer just boxed herself into a corner IMB ??

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Didn't Paul Walker (r.i.p.) have a 16 year old girlfriend?

  • MookieFly

    He should. Truth be told, the man makes good music. He could put that talent behind some of these new lackluster artists and top some charts

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Yes. His nasty azz gives a hell of a performance at his concerts.

  • Too Many Colors

    AND DOES

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I agree. He needs to write and tour, cuz his concerts are the truth.

  • MS PEACHES

    Elk Lodge here I come!!!!

  • JerseyMom

    LMAO

  • Angela

    My opinion is there is NO expiration date on the actions of a ? child predator being the fact there's no expiration date on the victims trauma and pain that they feel. He's disgusting plain and simple. I will never support him again another day in life. But that's just me.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    So I guess Jared from Subway will get a pass when he gets out.

  • Too Many Colors

    R. Kelly BEEN asked these questions. He said he is NEVER answering about Aaliyah. He did speak out on her biopic though.

  • Futuredocdonte

    The Buffet, which sold less than 10,000 copies.

    So u mean to tell me that he had another album come out after that black panty album?

  • Buttercup

    UncleButter61 is the DJ at the Legion. My siblings and I went out together one night, and BroButter34 and I were swinging (the dance) like there was no tomorrow. Our uncle had to announce to everyone that we "belongst" to him. Maaaaaaaan, everybody already knew that! LOL

  • Auditor

    Exactly...I asked my momma she knew...I'm like and how come you ain't tell me!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Lawd, my Moms love her some Fiesta. LMAO. She went crazy when he dropped "When a Woman's Fed Up" right after my Moms kicked my Dad out when we found out about his side baby

  • ShelleDC

    he's been texting a 14 year old. But he still with the Jenner girl. Who is amazingly turning into PINKChyna

  • Auditor

    Lol

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Aaliyahs reputation or career never came back after that happened.

  • Buttercup

    One dance I couldn't quite get is the 2 Step they do in Kansas City. Those smooth daddies have the Blue Room turnt!

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I love that one too! Yaaaaassssss!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hell I step too and I'm from the A ...... bawhahahaha dead azz too ..... in heels, sneakers and skates ... shid

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Arra is one of the best. But most true artists ain't bout chit in their real life.

  • SummerBaby

    One time I got in an argument on the dance floor with my dance partner & his azz left me on the packed dance floor

  • ShelleDC

    He tried that with Tre' and Tre lil butt was unappreciative. Kelley to Proud to be behind the scenes and not get any recognition.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    The girl Game was fingering is 18.

  • iWasteTime

    WHO SAID PINK CHYNA!!!!
    I hate how much I luh y'all
    (and hate how DaQuan acts a fool on my phone)

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Now THAT is TRUTH 101.

  • Torae

    Yea but he's damn near 40...old enough to be her daddy and he was messing with her BEFORE she was 18.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Hm. Oh, ok.. lol

  • kco0l;s ChocolateBox

    R Kelly is very gifted his voice sounds better than it EVER. His whole image was mainly based off of sex. But just like my musical idol PRINCE. He is far more gifted than that. Also can write songs with a universal message.

    With that said Caroline was VERY wrong and unprofessional in her interviewing R Kelly. He had every right leaving like he did. Every artist is just a hit away from a comeback . Only God can judge. That is who he only has to answer to.

  • MS PEACHES

    We had fast dance contest. (I know I'm country as hell.) LOL For a minute I thought we were strange because growing up people in outer cities didn't know what dance we were talking about. We still do the cha cha.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hell half of the industry fawking underage boys ..... smh ..... folks can miss me ..... if ya don't like the man as an individual that's fine ..... but just cause you (not talking bout you by the way) don't like em ... I'm suppose to not support those good tunes ..... shid FOH .... the way music has turned to shyt with these American artist .... shid ..... getting a banging artist that can make multiple albums sound good is a rarity ...

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I want mozzarella sticks. I'm going to eat this healthy turkey wrap ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    But he been behind the scenes .... check them credits ..... and that's why he still paid .... has nothing to do with being proud .... he loves his craft ... one of the few

  • Buttercup

    I would've snatched him up like Scorpion, "Get over here!" and made him finish the song with me. LOL

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile and Ion even care for Steve azz to that extent ..... but when I see that mess ..... makes me want to support him even more .... tired of our black men making mistakes .. (a mistake) and they act like they slaughtered and murdered someone ..... sick of that shyt ...

  • ShelleDC

    I know that, I just don't think he wants stay behind the scenes.

  • Auditor

    Pretty much people make mistakes

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Ok, I watched the interview. Robert was DONE after that tweet was read. That woman clearly could not here the undercurrent of "gtfoh with that shyt" in his voice that was loud and clear. This was funny to me.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Separate the man from the music.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Technically he should and kinda sort of has ..... but that has got to be hard for him ... especially when you genuinely love performing for your fans and love music period ... hell look at MJ ...... his azz was walking death still trying to do a 50 concert tour ....

  • Fancy

    Inappropriate interview, who does she think she is???... it happened, it's in the past...talk about something we dont know..

  • MS PEACHES

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile ridiculous !

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Well with Kells I do !!!!

  • OSHH

    I never cared for him or his music before we found out about his perverse appetites.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile !!!!!!!! Beyond Gifted ... that's rare .....

  • ShelleDC

    I agree .... and Yeah MJ should have sat down long time ago. May he RIP

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    "You reminded of Jeep" I knew he was a genius.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile Kells got the nerve to be rapping on this album chile ..... alright now ....

  • That’s Interesting

    This no name bit ch trying to turn into Oprah or Barbara Walters in the middle of this interview about an ALBUM. I don't agree with what he's done, not at all, but I don't agree with what she did. She was trying to get attention and she went way beyond her pay grade. I love when he asked her does she drink and told her she knew that was a negative question and that it has nothing to do with her job.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    MJ tried to get back out there for the fans .... love it

  • Ria

    Child predators don't deserve a break. He was so defensive, wouldn't let the lady speak. His tours are not selling. Just 2 years ago, he was on ZMT, he wanted to put out more of that tacky Trap In the Closet series and he wanted help financially to be able to do so, there were no takers. Put a fork in it, pervert.

  • That’s Interesting

    She enjoyed rattling him and making him upset. That was her intention. She just didn't think he would get up and leave like anybody would with good sense. He stayed too long. He should have left right then.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Lmao

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    What'd you get? I'm about to make a sandwich (boring).

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Oh my. Please don't go there. Any child who's being sexualized by an adult IS innocent in that situation. I don't care if they are four or fourteen.

    Oh dear.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I love that song "The Worst" by her...I sing the hail out of that one.

  • Ria

    You have major issues if you defend and support this sicko. Blame it on the interviewer, it's easier to do. She's reading live fan tweets, how is she wrong? It doesn't matter if he's a molester, as long it's not your kids, woohoo. Right? Sick.

    Neither do I and the list is rather long.

  • iWasteTime

    Jerry Lee and his young bride cousin!

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I haven't seen anybody say that it doesn't matter. People said they separate the music from it while others stopped fuggin with him completely. That's their choice.

    I got issues but this ain't one of them.

    R. Kelly don't look like he can just smoke n' drink and be straight...

  • Too Many Colors

    I just said that too! Chile

  • Ria

    Fast girls, huh? Victim shaming is wrong. Get some help.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    I can not stomach him. He has sex with minors. Its all " who cares" until it is your child.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    He went on Sway.

  • Ria

    Of course he is. Says a lot about you.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I guess I'm in the minority, because as a father to 3 girls, I can't separate the man and the music. It seems like all his songs (no matter how great) have a new meaning now.
    The same way I wouldn't trust a "reformed" crackhead to be left alone in my house. And if they ask why, I would have to remind them how they used to could steal the flour out of a biscuit.
    And I was a HUGE fan. Been to like 3 or 4 shows and my oldest daughter was made to 12Play.
    Haven't purchased/downloaded an R Kelly album since the double album R back in 98/99.

  • Just Keya

    Now I don't feel like who cares. People should care. Having sex with minors is absolutely wrong. But riddle me this? Can you stomach MJ? They said he was touching little boys.

  • belizeanborn

    The interviewer was not flattered by the pedophile. She ask the question that needs to be asked every time he shows up for an interview until he answers it truthfully which will not happen b/c he is who he is: #ChesterTheChildMolester. It also shows his mind set that he mentions the place where he recruits young girls, he was going to McDonalds (I'm sure McDonalds does not like the association). No one is buying his music like they did before knowing what a pervert he is. Stick a fork in him, he's done. The way he behaved will follow him with every interview he does in the future.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    So people don't care because they will still listen to 12play? How Sway?

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I don't buy his music but I DO still listen to it on occasion. I feel you.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Arra, Ursher, Diddy. Sound like my grandmother. She says "d da rah d da rah" instead of "uh".

  • SummerBaby

    Really? Where at?

  • Just Keya

    I'm not going to stone you. At all. Not about this. I just wanted to know. But you feel how you feel and that's your right. It's not like you said Oh I don't like him because he has a big nose. Having sex with underage girls is a big deal. ANY adult things going on with kids is a big deal. IMO.

  • Di Ana

    R Kelly was extremely uncomfortable when she starting reading those negative tweets. Non the less he is still a smart man and I thought it was interesting how the woman said that he is thrown off my her accent and he was like no it's your English and then he started asking her questions about getting drunk and she was like I'm not understanding your questions and R Kelly was like exactly and that he didn't come here to get interrogated.

  • Paige

    I don't blame R. That shat was so long ago. Move on. And I won't let any man babysit my kids except their daddy.

  • SummerBaby

    We got in an argument stepping. Girl a mess! It's funny when I think back tho!

  • Just Keya

    I have no idea. Just because I listen to the music does not mean I thought he was right or anything like that.

  • Mz.Capricorn

    @Keya. Because they pick & choose who they wanna crucify.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Age ain't nothin but a number. Seems like you're ready. I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind. Nope. Nope. Nope.

    ?

  • Empress

    I am not interested in R Kelly or his music. The nonchalance of most of our community to his abuse of young Black girls is mirrored in the way we let other overage males abuse Black girls and we continue to sexualized our daughters so that they think it's OK. White people will NEVER excuse Bill Cosby, they will do everything they can to make sure he SUFFERS and goes broke. But in our community we do not protect our girls, we blame them but It's not OK. Anyone who is an enemy or danger to my children is my enemy. I don't care if you sing like an Angel if you behave like a Demon. Any young girl who might be reading this blog I hope you know you have value and the nonsense you read from people still tapping their toe to this pervert has everything to do with race and gender and mental slavery. It took a long time to convince us that it is OK to abuse Black girls and it will likely take just as long to convince us otherwise. .

  • Just Keya

    Right. BOTH are dead wrong to me. But I won't act like the music was not fantastic.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    I can't, but then I stopped liking MJ when he stopped liking all things black---except for black people's money, which they foolishly threw at him.

  • WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately?

    He's a horrible man and his comment about still selling out shows is why he walks around thinking he is invincible. People keep supporting him cause who cares if Bill raped 30 women? He was Dr. HUXTABLE!! Who cares if R.Kelly ruined the lives of countless young black girls? He sang Ignition!! Who cares if Sean Penn is racist and beats bitches asses? He was in Carlito's Way!! People excuse all sorts of disgusting behavior so long as you entertain them or do something for them.

  • Di Ana

    I'm not able to listen to his music anymore either and I was a huge fan. His music doesn't have the same meaning. Like exactly whose booty are you feeling on? A 12 y/o or grown woman? I just can't.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I have daughters too. That girl looked grown. I was in high school when the tape came out and she looked damn near grown back then... Wrong is wrong though, but I didn't ever see it like that.

  • Just Keya

    I am craving EVERYTHING bad...and you are correct it is too early for this mess. Are you showing yet?

  • SummerBaby

    I just had a similar conversation a few weeks ago about us not protecting & valuing our Black girls.

  • PrettyBrown28

    It's funny when people say "Only God can judge"...as if it makes there behavior ok. If anything, I would want people to judge me because people can't send me to hell. Only God can. So keep up that mantra "Only God Can Judge Me"...He will.

  • PrettyBrown28

    It didn't? According to whom?

  • Just Keya

    See the first girl looked grown....but that one he took a pee on....nope. She had ZERO hair. Not a fresh shaved, but a did not grow yet look. I did NOT like that at all. I was wondering where her momma was at though. How your underage daughter backstage without you?

  • Ria

    Same here. I can't and refused to separate the artist and their craft. They are one. Isn't the craft coming from the person? Your soul have to be really contaminated to be able to buy and listen to a sick person music and not feel weird.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I used to deliver beer to them, in Maryland (during the day). I didn't see anyone of color. I heard jokes (rumors) from other drivers. They have to meet somewhere and those are the main gathering/drinking spots in "the country".

    I respect your opinion BUT, that was the biggest problem I had with people trying to defend him. "They looked grown." My oldest two look older than they actually are. They have since they turned like 12. But let them start talking, and you can tell their true age.

  • Ria

    Well said. Black folks support trash. It's sad.

  • Just Keya

    I don't agree. Plenty of rappers talk about selling drugs, being a dope boy, shooting people, and have NEVER done any of that in life. Don't even know what an 8ball looks like. But according to them got the coke directly from the plug and cut and bagged it themselves. Nope. The person and the music is not always one.

  • Buttercup

    We don't do a big spread for Christmas. We normally do something seafood, but Mama Butter will be joining us this year and the only seafood she will eat is fried fish. I decided on a taco bar: ground sirloin, chicken, shrimp, and fish. I'll probably throw some fajitas off in there too.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I never watched the videos. I didn't want to see it. I let the justice system do what it does. I took note of his issue and acknowledged its not okay. I kept it moving.

    I'm not screaming for R. Kelly in the streets but I'm not opposed to listening either. Everyone has a right to chose how they want to deal with him.

  • Allison G

    No that has never been said abt him ...he has had drug issues in the past.never linked to teenage girls

  • Empress

    I am very disappointed and depressed about this. If we don't care who will? I can't. After working with children abused by people like him, I can't read all the happy concert goers today. That money you spend makes it easier for him to groom and lure victims with cash and gifts, it makes it easier for him to pay out of court settlements, it makes it easier for him to pay child prostitutes. I just don't get it. And it's not like like ANY of us believe he didn't do it. WE KNOW he did it. and it's all good as long as we can one two step. KMT

    I cant today I will catch a case I'm going to take a walk. This literally made me cry. And it's not him, it's us. Most of the comments about still checking for his music are from women. Many of us have been through some sexual exploitation/abuse or narrowly escaped being molested. I know I have and I am just tired of our BS!! Be Blessed one and all, I'm out.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    At what point does he get redemption? I realize his victims may never find solace, however, what did they think would happen asking those questions? It's unfair to think that man would want to commit career suicide (again).

    Also it's so funny to me that one person does something and it turns into "black folks like filth" LOL. Yes, we are a collective of ppl with African ancestry, but that doesn't mean we all think the same.

    For those who say "That was long ago"... The truth is it was long ago he got caught! A molester doesn't just stop. Just like anyone with an addiction or aversion can't just stop. They either get help or find better ways to hide it. I believe R Kelly is a black Sheen. He uses money to get his addiction satisfied.

    How can one be awake if they're still deep into this fake entertainment industry? Being awake is to keep your money in your pocket and spend it wisely, on important things, not on these entertainers. Once you are truly awake, you'll see the smoke and mirrors, you'll never want to support any of these people because you'll know they are all controlled. It's all a gimmick.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Just when I was thinking this is'nt an interview, this is an interrogation. He said it! I like how when he realized she was trolling, he already made up his mind that he was gonna walk out. He just took control of his airtime first.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I have no issue with people who like R Kelly. I'm personally just indifferent. There are a lot of celebrities that I don't like for myriad of reasons. Yet, I don't care one way or the other how someone else feels about them.
    I have never been a fan of MJ. Ever. Touching little boys was just the coup de grace.
    Was a fan of Tyrese, til he started doing more talking on soc med than singing.
    Was a fan of Kelly Price til she bounced her big ass on my tv screen and gave a little insight to who she really was.
    Was a fan of Pill Cosby, until well you know.
    The list goes on.
    I'm sure there are quite a few celebrities that I actually support that have done some seriously devilish shyt. Maybe I hadn't heard about it, or their indiscretions doesn't resound with me like it does to others.

  • Paige

    If you knew anything about God you would know he is not holding something against you that was done 2 seconds ago let alone 20 years ago if you have confessed and repented.

  • sealsaa

    The Jenner girl was 17 when Tyga started messing with her. 17 is legal in a few states. Maybe not the state of California, but it is legal in a few. Statutory Rape Kelly on the other hand, married a 15 year old Aaliyah. 15 years old, just let that sink in. Not to mention the girls he slept with and pissed on on camera, and the ones that we don't know about. One of these men has messed with ONE underage girl that we know of, and the other has an established pattern of going after young women. Your Tyga comparison is flawed.

  • Michelle

    Exactly. All these white and black Hollywood execs have been raping and or taking advantage of these young boys and girls for 50 years and people still go and support their movies and music . the only diff with RKelly is his @ss was on tape "allegedly"

  • Too Many Colors

    What do folks who opposed to R.Kelly do when the little kids break out at preschool graduations/functions with "I Believe I Can Fly"???

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Again, wrong is wrong. No defense here, he had his trial. Our daughters should be protected, regardless. I don't believe anyone thought the girl was 12. I can't say it's mixing apples and oranges, but it's pretty much slander. We're talking 18 and over. I don't know any 12 year olds passing for 18.

  • Allison G

    Yep he sure is because the other two have been linked to dating and sexually relationships with teenage girl

  • Torae

    Oh okay so we pick and choose what's okay?..common sense tells us what's legal and not legal...how old was Tyga? He's also still considered a predator in some states as well. Looks like your comparison is also flawed foh...if we boycotting r kelly we might as well boycott all these perversed people in the entertainment industry...don't pick and choose...if one IS WRONG THEN THEY ARE ALL WRONG!!

  • Buttercup

    I didn't start eating crawfish until I had them at The Jazz in KC. Scampi and paella sounds divine!

  • Torae

    My point is they have received more than one chance to get it right. Iron man ass is probably still on drugs but we will never know it because he's now a golden boy...that was part of my comparison now carry on...

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I don't even remember the second girl. But just like the Akon incident, shouldn't everyone at the concert be 18 and over? Like R. Kelly said in the interview "that's his office".

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Why should he let any stranger watch his kids. That's just common sense.

  • Ria

    Oh stop. You sound foolish. There are so many things I could say about what you wrote but I'll just say this, there are no cure for molesters. Robert haven't repented. Before you come to God and ask to be forgiven, one must admit it and go to everyone that they've hurt and ask for forgiveness. He would then leave the entertainment industry. He wouldn't keep making sexual songs. Like I said, you have issues if you believe we should get over his actions.

  • Allison G

    Admit it you messed up his name should of never been associated with the other two men. So you're saying r kelly deserves the right to get his life right when he has destroyed other people's lives because he's a pedophile who preys on young girls

  • sealsaa

    Common sense should tell you that you're defending a serial statutory rapist, and that there is an obvious difference between what he did and what Tyga did. Folks love defending R. Kelly for some reason, as if we didn't watch him marry one 15 year old girl and piss on another one, and common sense isn't as common as it should be, so i'll let you tell it.

  • Torae

    I'm saying none of them actually need second chances. I don't have remorse for crack heads, addicts or pedophiles. But there is obviously a lot of picking and choosing of who we forgive. If one is wrong then all of them are wrong. I could really careless. R.KELLY and the rest of them will continue to do as they please BEHIND closed doors. There is no need for me to debate with a stranger about how I feel. So we can end it here.

  • SameoleJ

    For the Bible Thumpers: If he went to the Lord and repented (which we do not know if he did or did not and that is between him and God), how is it your business what happens afterwards? Aren't we absolved of our sins when we repent? And, per the Bible, judging isn't approved of, but alas here you are judging your little hearts away. What he did was wrong? But guess what...........if you and he stood in front of the Lord with your sins today or tomorrow....He is going to view the sins as a sin and there is no rating in his office. And as for the victims, how do we NOT know that they have healed emotionally? Did you talk to them, recently and find out? As a victim of sexually abuse at 12-14, I can tell you that over 20 years passing, I have been healed and am perfectly fine.....so why can't that be the same for them. Get off your soapbox and have a seat, Indian style on that hill of judgment and shut up!!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah, he can stop avoiding the question or just go into hiding. I remember one of the Braxton sisters I worked with telling me R Kelly's going to get arrested in the next week or so for this crime. She was right; he did. One of the underage chick's he was screwing is the niece of singer Sparkle. Everything the Braxton sister told me turned out to be on point, so I never believed anything R. Kelly had to say.
