R. Kelly

Illinois officials don't want to participate in singer R. Kelly's efforts to recruit news sex slaves for his rumored cult. State officials rejected a permit application for a concert to be hosted by the troubled crooner, citing security concerns.

The "I Believe I Can Fly" star was scheduled to host the Spring Break Jam in April, but organizers behind the Springfield show were denied permission for the concert on Thursday, Jan. 10.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Illinois Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Denise Albert rejected the music festival application following protests outside Kelly's Chicago studio earlier in the week.

Protesters and Kelly's supporters also clashed outside Kelly's residence at Chicago's Trump Tower after the broadcast of Lifetime's explosive documentary Surviving R. Kelly.

Demonstrations continued over the weekend with Twitter activists calling for a boycott of the singer's music, while Kelly's loyal fans showed their support for the troubled star by blasting his tunes from car stereos as they drove by.

Chicago police paid a visit to Kelly's apartment at Chicago's Trump Tower on Friday, after an anonymous caller claimed he was holding two women in his apartment against their will.

Officers took the 52-year-old singer into another room and interviewed the two females separately. The officers left the apartment after they determined the women were not being held against their will.

TMZ reports the two women in question were Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, whose family members accused Kelly of brainwashing the women to become part of his alleged sex cult.

    PERIOD. Like how many times the police gonna go find them for yall and then they be like no emerg. I am fine? They do not want to be bothered! I KNOW as a parent that is hard. If this were Dub24 I would be upset. BUT if it was ME or her DAD who set her up for the bullshit to START with (which we would NEVER EVER EVER do) I would just SIT THERE AND EAT MY FOOD AND SHUT UP before recepits started to get dropped ON MY ASS. If I done basically SOLD my daughter into sexual servitude, Imma hush. I cant wait for their skeletons to come tumbling out. I DO NOT feel sorry for their parents. Im sorry I dont.

    The parents of at least one of these girls I know for a fact, personally introduced them to Robert ( I think Azriel Clary). You don't hand over your daughters to a damn near 25 year documented predator. For this action alone, I feel no empathy or sympathy for these PARTICULAR individuals.
    These young ladies are probably not even true fans, but their parents are tho (were).
    Horrible and money hungry parenting that failed...

    I didn't watch "Surviving R.Kelly" but a year prior there was the BBC Documentary "R.Kelly: Sex Cult..." the journalist went to the Savages home. The HOUSE I saw made me wonder what are thry doing for living? Also WHY did they ask R.Kelly's help?(unless everything was purchased with R.Kelly money).
    Also I did red that the family were discussing business to open a lingery and sex toy company with R.Kelly. I smell someone got scam by a scammer.... None of it don't smell right. Especially when you hear Jocelyn saying she don't want nothing to do with her family

    I wanna know when the white people are gonna boycott the white perverts in Hollywood. Corey Hiram and his biddy was molested died and they still watching the movies coming out of this cesspool.I am not defending RKelly but it seems the black man (Pervert) is used to set and example while the White perverts are hidden and protected in plain site. This is why so many black people are not taking this seriously because a lot of us know we are used to stone our own white the white people protect theirs and gaslight us.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Like I said.. R Kelly created the perfect pedo-storm. Pedos create a false safe haven for poor kids and help parents out financially in this trap. He tells the girls.. he is the one supporting the girls family and can either help or harm them if they left. He tells the parents I am helping her career but if she leaves she will never realize her dream she needs to be trained.. here is some dough I will send you regular also.. No one is hip to the real plan that the moment they become 18 all communication and money will stop. But then its too late because the girls have been trained for years to obey him and now they are 18 and he is all they know. The parents were duped with money now they don't have it nor their kid..Now guilt is all the parents have..lesson..nothing is worth trading your kid for NOTHING..

  • Mielle Downey

    Exactly, they only use the black man to set an example while they hide their own perverts, ours are in full view.

    It’s fitting that he is staying in Trump Tower given a then 13 year old child filed a rape case against Donald Trump yet the country still elected that man as their president. All of the information including the filing was in the public don’t at the time. Sick world. That girl should have had someone in her corner to save her. She had to learn to be her own sHERO. That takes an incredible amount of bravery https://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/donald-trump-rape-lawsuit-dropped-230770 . I really hoping the women of Saudi Arabia gain a sense of autonomy. I’m so proud of the girl from Saudi Arabia who recently escaped her family while on vacation and has since sought refuge in Canada. Again that takes bravery. She’s another one of my sHERO’s.

  • Coffee1st

    How you gon fortify a community when you have detrimental behaviors within the walls.
    Mr. Kelly is part of our community and culture. He needs to be dealt with. Defending and deflecting his actions is sending a clear and dangerous message to OUR boys....and men.
    "Make em love you and you can get away with anything".
    What these white cats out here are doing should be exposed with jail time attached. But just because they aren't does not give R. a pass.
    We refuse to clean house but want to cry foul with everyone else.
    That's just plain irresponsible.

    They were hopefully ignorant... They were poor or low income people who wanted better for their kids because they all talked about how talented their kids were. Here comes the biggest name in the industry knocking on your door. They were in that moment thinking that they were in control of the situation. They had regular calls was told there was a caregiver for the girls etc. So they were sold on a scam like people do everyday. Plus they were banking on it also. They probably were very protective in the beginning, then began to slowly trust him. Pedophiles don't rush in for the kill. They are like any other predator, they love the thrill of the hunt. Like the parents said once they turned 18 everything shut down. and the trap was closed..They all thought it wouldn't be their child, their child is smart enough to know if they are being touch to tell..but the sugar in the trap for the girls was the prospect of being a star so they were quiet. The sugar for the parents was their kids making it big and they are moving out the ghetto. Everyone thinks its black and white, but the predator plays in the grey..Hind sight is 20/20...

    I thiink some of the parents were naive, maybe stupidly so. I remember in the Lifetime docuseries some of the parents were like "Yeah, I know he charged with some stuff but he got found not guilty, so... maybe there was nothing to it".
    That was just dumb to me. Parents need to have better discernment than that.

    I have a question for you.. why do people play the lottery? They know that the odds are millions to one right. But they spend big bucks on gambling for a better future.. These parents were gambling on the odds that their kids weren't going to end up like that because they taught them how to spot a predator from a kid like most mother teach their kids. He was a pro a manipulation with money. People when the lottery hits in the hundreds of millions will gamble their whole checks knowing they have rent due at the possibility of winning..people are hopefully ignorant at times..is it wrong ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY... but it is more common than you think. Olympians experience molestation, hell college football little league all have predators in the mist. The keen eyed parent has to be ever diligent and make sacrifices to watch their star. You see parent thats always with their kids and we call them momagers or over protecting.. but I actually think they are the most smart.

    I hear you but all of that would be believable if a whole tape of R KELLY ur?nating on a child and then having intércourse with her, wasn't circulating decades ago. They been knew WHO and WHAT they were dealing with when he came knocking, and they STILL chose to allow their underage kids to be alone with him. I agree that they wanted their kids to be stars to move them out of the ghetto but look at how it backfired. They handed their kids over to a predator but now want to act surprised and hurt, at what he's doing.

  • Mielle Downey

    No I am just saying if our shit is front and center then the white people shit need to be front and center to. You do know that it was one of Hugh Hefner concubines that was apart of the Kill Bill group but Hugh himself was seen as a legend a hero to young white males. Hugh did the same thing RKelly did to young girls but he was vindicated and died a hero. The only thing wrong with the black community is we think with our hearts and not our heads. WE knew, the parents knew but they sent their daughters there willingly. Would you do the same to your daughter knowing a man was a known high profile pedo? No I don't think so , so use your head.

    One.. he contacted them through the child.. two..I said zero about excusing the behavior...as you didn't read me say it is was excusable.. I did say they fell into a predators trap like a lot of people do everyday..

  • HotInCleveland

    All that wishful thinking does not excuse them for placing their child in harm’s way. Buying a lotto tix is not analogous to intitiating contact between your kid and a known predator

    But remember, the public has a very short term memory dear.. as you forgot they all said because he was found not guilty they wanted to believe it so.. Do you remember the OJ Trial.. you believe he didn't do it? There are some in our community that say no he didn't. many said hell yeah he did it but glad the system finally worked like it work for the white man and got him off. Same logic with R Kelly..

  • Whirl

    Respectfully I beg to differ. There is a clear line of demarcation between nouns and verbs. My action of “stering clear” is separate, distinct and apart from the notion of a “belief” which we know to be a thing and some might even go so far as to claim it is as notion that acts by way of a mechanism as a thing in itself.

  • GAPeach

    No. What you are actually doing is saying it's ok, because there are white men who have not paid the price. You do realize that not every criminal pays the price for their crimes? It doesn't absolve the ones that get caught in the crosshaors though. He's been messing with children for over 20 years. He's been WRONG probably longer than that. He doesn't deserve sympathy. He needs to pay a price for his wrongs. Deflecting and saying someone else did it is what children do. My son says to me, "Anthony can wear shorts to school" but it's 45 degrees outside. I don't care what he can do. You can't do it. You are making the same argument. You're also trying to justify why you think he should get away with being a r.apist and m-olester. Your only justification is because he's black. Girl bye.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    This is true. But I will say that society chooses what it wants to remember. There are people who have done far less damage to others, than these two but society is still crucifying them today. Perfect example Chrisette Michelle. A one time performance got her blackballed forever, while R KELLY is a long term, proud, known child molester and the black community, still supported him. That tells you a lot about us honestly. How many years was a joke made about that "molesting uncle" while the child he molested was the black sheep of the family? And that was considered "okay". Society will happily make up excuses/lies as to why, they continue to crucify certain people, while completely turning a blind eye to those who should be crucified.

  • Eileen

    ???? what does that have todo with black girls and their stupid parents

  • StoneColdLady

    “I” think some of the petuou view as defending Kelly ARE in fact saying that he is wrong; HOWEVER believe the parry are equally as responsible for willing giving their children to a person KNOWN for having an “attraction” to teenage girls

  • Ang

    7th Heaven reruns air everyday multiple times a day. People have been talking about this for awhile since the Cosby Show reruns have been pulled from every network but TvOne, and I believe that includes networks that still air 7th Heaven after the main star was accused of being a child molester and the tapes were released with him admitting it. I don’t see anything wrong with people saying that both shows should get the same treatment. That’s not defending anyone, it’s being logical and fair on both sides. The 7th Heaven cast is still getting their royalties despite the star’s terrible misdeeds.

  • Eileen

    the predator plays i the grey and thats why they are predators...nasty

  • Ang

    But all the movies he made are not being boycotted or pulled off the air. Everyone who worked with him despite his behavior being well known in the industry isn’t being “cancelled” or boycotted. People need to go hard on all those people too. I’m not saying at all that R. Kelly shouldn’t be getting what he deserves though.

  • Ang

    Some of the parents likely did do that. There was an article on MN last year I think about the parents who wanted their daughters to come home. IIRC the parents (mothers and fathers) said they did know about his past but they thought he could help their daughter start a music career. Clearly, the parents made poor decisions that put their kids in that position and didn’t realize it would go that badly. However, their bad parenting doesn’t justify any wrongdoing on R. Kelly’s part.

  • HotInCleveland

    You’re trying to paint them as victims, which is excusing their behavior. They were volunteers. It’s not a trap if you know beforehand the man is a predator. Thank you for correcting me-he contacted the parents through the child and the parents gave the ok for him to work with their kid-that doesn’t absolve them of any responsibility. Clearly we don’t agree on this topic.

  • Eileen

    Yelp that was me and my husband! When our 6 year old had summer soccer camp at a university we went with him! every morning we got up at 5:30-6:00 watched him practise all day! went with him to the lunchroom watched him have lunch with the other boys went to afternoon practise then we collected our sons little black a-- and went home and did it the next day and the next and the next for a whole week! did I tell you my husband took off for a whole week? I was a stay at home mom but my hubbie was hands on dont play about his kids father. Yelp everyday I bought my quilt spread it on the ground read a good book and my hubbie had his computer. Did I tell you he was the only black boy on that entire soccer field did I tell you I saw a quote/unquote biracial boy there, was he frenz with my son? Nope where was his black a-- daddy?! anyway I'm jus saying my husband and I trusted noone with our children, Nope we didn't do sleepovers my kids got their their own d-mn beds, Everyone have a great day!!!

  • 11pink123

    R Kelly need to come out and address these things, fix what he can, apologize to who he hurt and then move on. He’s do it backwards and it’s only proving to be a bully and now trying to mentally abuse his fans.

    The only thing wrong with the black community is we think with our hearts and not our heads. WE knew, the parents knew but they sent their daughters there willingly. Would you do the same to your daughter knowing a man was a known high profile pedo? No I don't think so , so use your head.

    Both 7th Heaven and The Cosby show rerun episodes are up on Amazon prime. 7th Heaven is in syndication on the UP channel and the Cosby Show is on TV One as you said. And who said the Cosby Show cast does not receive royalties checks? That's breaking news to me.

  • Ang

    Why is is breaking news to you that they don’t get royalties since it was taken off the air? You missed the point. I guess you didn’t see the news reports. The Cosby Show used to be on a lot of channels everyday. As soon as Cosby’s trial started people started demanding that it be pulled off tv and it was. Stores even stopped selling the DVDs. TvOne is the only channel that didn’t follow suit. Therefore, the cast isn’t getting the money they used to. They even talked about that on the View because Raven Symone is still friends with some of the host and told them that almost all the money she used to make from The Cosby royalties has dried up, it's not as big of a deal for her because she’s done so many other successful projects but she knew it would hurt the others. You don’t remember Elvin working at Trader Joe’s and even Havey Levin said the missed royalties hurt him.

    It’s good that there is a focus on R. Kelly, and moving forward, if he’s not imprisoned, there should be no more victims.

    I hope, as well as other abusive men, like ones we’ve seen on shows like MAURY for years, R. Kelly changes how he treats women, and seek professional help!

    I don’t agree with political, public opinion or PC justice, or grandstanding!

    I think parents should be equally prosecuted with endangerment to a child for the ones who would bring their underage girls to a known or alleged predator, along with any of his staff who participated!

    I have family members married to VERY abusive men, man-sharing, so trapped into their Christian vows or obsession/husbands, bright, intelligent, educated women, or working poor!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Thats mob mentality... not everyone subscribe to it though.. most people are in the middle.. its just the noise of the crowd seeems like we all agree.. Also you have to look at the perspective that is sad but true.. people don't want to be associated with something that is bad and do not want to love something that is awful, so to disassociate it they find any little thing to hang doubt on it like the fact that eventhough those who saw the video all said it was R Kelly without a doubt, because he was said by court to be not guilty. thats their reason to hang on to it. They say its a conspiracy etc. anything but looking at the facts..why because to know you support openly a pedophile makes you a monster also..and they don't want to be that...

  • EyeEmJai

    I can't believe their parents sent them there KNOWING this. Yes, he is a sicko, but he cannot be a sicko without these girls. I understand that you state his crimes shouldn't be diminished because of the parents. But you are diminishing the AWARE parents' actions to place focus ONLY on the crimes on their daughters. You can't have one without the other. Equally, they are both bad and both need the focus.

  • EyeEmJai

    No. I don't condone the behavior of R. Kelly OR the parents. Both are disgusting.

    You must not have read anything Ive written.. You just want to make your point. I didn't say they were right. I said they were caught up in a predators web. Everybody who is scammed out of something are WILLING PARTICIPANTS... they don't know they have been scammed until its too late. a predator doesn't use the exact same technique each time. Have you ever watched a street hustler scam people with card games? They sit and watch person after person get thier money taken..yet will THINK they have the system down after watching only to put their 20 up thinking they know what will happen because they paid close attention..only to lose out.. people are gullable period. And if you find the right weakness, not everybody will fall for it..but they don't have too..only a few..why do yo think people are at R Kelly concerts and shows right after the airing screaming take me?

    ...also, the man who played Elvin on the Cosby show was captured bagging groceries at Trader Joe's last year. The photo went viral. He stated he had to get any job available to make ends meet since they pulled the reruns off the air. Luckily, Tyler Perry and another producer hired him as an actor once the story was made public.

    verb: think; 3rd person present: thinks; past tense: thought; past participle: thought; gerund or present participle: thinking

    have a particular opinion, belief, or idea about someone or something.

    I suggest you go and relearn basic english hun. because you can not have an opinion without thought. To think is to believe and what does the dictionary say about THINKING?

    Wow and right! The same thing occurred with child actress from Full House. Her parents sent her away to be cared for ad watched by a "personal assistant" in exchange for her being on the show, fame, and money. Messed up that woman. ?

  • Ang

    1) I’m not diminishing anything. I said R. Kelly needs to get everything he deserves. The problem with focusing on the parents is that not all the situations were the same. In some cases I believe he took advantage of girls in vulnerable conditions. In some cases I believe the parents did take their daughters to him or turn the other way to the allegations when he came to them because they saw dollar signs. However, there wouldn’t be any situation to talk of if he did what he should have and turned those girls and parents away.
    2) the girls didn’t commit any crimes. The underage girls were taken advantage of by everyone involved. Period.
    3) If we’re talking about R. Kelly’s punishment, nothing the parents did will have any bearing on his punishment. “I couldn’t have done if if so and so hadn’t done x,y,z” isn’t a valid excuse in court.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Raven Symone was added to the Cosby show later in its run so she wouldn't receive the same residuals/royalties as say Malcolm Jamal Warner. The oldest daughter's Husband's role in the show was not prominent as the main cast so his checks wouldn't be as big. About 5 years ago, when reruns stopped airing due to Bill Cosby's sexual misconduct, yes the syndication checks stopped. The reruns are back on now so they are getting those checks now.

  • Sassie

    u right

  • the guest

    You are correct.

    R Kelly is foul though. But the approach for justice has been all wrong. The way I see it he himself is a former child molestation victim and having gone untreated he grew up to be a predator.

    What he’s doing there is no law defined against it. He is human trafficking without the selling. He’s pimping without the sell. He has a brothel and prostitution ring that only services him under the guise of sharing him and in exchange luxury shelter, food, and gifts.

    He’s doing what cult leaders have done within the law for ages. He does lure, procure, imprison but not with force, with mind control. Yes, the women are adults and are there because they want to be but make no mistake they are chosen, groomed, mind controlled to feel that they are there of their own free will, even though they are not. They are hookers and R Kelly there collective boyfriend is their only customer.

    Make no mistake R Kelly is a devious masterful criminal who has figured out how to commit crime within the law. Being wealthy has kept him from crossing the line to real pimping because he has no financial dependency on the women. He’s a pimp who doesn’t need to profit off his hookers. So there’s no selling and no crime.

    It’s very difficult to prosecute cult leaders. They are a special breed of evil. A lot of them use the cult for their deviant pedophila. And R Kelly would still be an active pedophile if he hadn’t been exposed. He’s probably physically abusive to the grown women because they’re not what he really wants. R Kelly is a very sick person.

  • Yetunde

    I agree with you. People keep on deflecting and blaming others. Even if the parents didn’t take their daughters, he would’ve still found a way. He was trawling shopping malls, hanging out in McDonald’s and secondary schools looking for his next prey. If it wasn’t them, it would’ve been another girl.

  • Cie Be

    Sorry, not sorry, there are no tables to turn here.... I'm from the Chi', everyone knew that R. Kelly liked young girls; therefore, if one wanted a come up, the parents allowed their young daughter's to roll with R. Kelly...with that being said, news spread, then every other young girl around the U.S. of A. wanted a piece of the action...problem was...unlike Aaliyah (which is a whole different story), they did not make the cut ...so now we have disgruntle parents trying to make a come up off a bust up! As for the alleged 14 yr. old on video with R. Kelly, this was proven untrue (according to her and the mother of the 14 yr.old). Now does that make it right, of course not. But, it should not make it right to bring it back up 20 yrs. later either. Nothing to see hear #tbt. js.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Thank you about the fake uproar...the only celebrity I believe was and still is sincere when it comes to R Kelly is Lil Kim....when that video surface she spoke up and said she would never work with him again. Now everyone loves John Legend...but he is dropping other people names that did not want to get involve in Lifetime BS....if you are that concern you do not need others.

  • ZZZ

    So this punk lives in the Trump Tower!!!! He should have been put away years ago. He paid Sparkle's cousin family not to identified him in the tape and Aaliyah's greedy uncle probably convinced her parents not to press charges against R Smelly. SMH!

  • dontgetblocked

    R. Kelly is a slime bag but we've known this for years. This is starting to look like harassment. They shut down his party. Came to his house to harass the two alleged "sex slaves" who said once again they were fine. Now they won't give him a permit. Everyone is trying to come out against him including Celine Dion who he did one song with. She's pulling the song from streaming. However, Celine married her mentor manager whom she met when she was 12 and he was very married. Is she really trying to judge because she came from a huge poor family and her parents sold her. All of these abused women were able to pick up and leave when they wanted. All of them. We watched Dominique walk out of the hotel with her mother. She went back to R and left again. In fact, she's gone back and forth for nine years. Those women were and are where they want to be. They're just as freaky as R. Kelly. Let's not forget the 35 year old DJ who knew before she moved in with R that he was an sex fiend and abuser. She sold everything and moved in with him because he made her a "cage" girl at his concert. Who goes from a respected DJ to a cage girl? I can't with these gold digging thots!

  • dontgetblocked

    Azriel Clary was only 17 when he pulled her on stage with him in 2015. Her parents were right there. She disappeared after the concert to screw him which was illegal in Florida. Apparently, she was suicidal and had attempted to take her life that week, so her parents gave her what she wanted. They even sent their 17 year old to live with R in Chicago. He was her mentor just like Aaliyah. They haven't seen their daughter since she graduated three years ago. Sad. But she told police Friday that she wants to be with R. Let her be with R then.

    He beats them. Starves them. Isolates them. Tortures them. It's all part of the sex cult that he's created. He did it to his ex-wife. It's sick but everyone who sticks around for it...must get some joy out of it. When they get tired, they simply leave. All of them said they just walked away.

  • dontgetblocked

    I believe it's a sex cult but the woman are down with it. If people want to get freaky...let them.

  • dontgetblocked

    The Pianist was excellent. It dealt with the Holocaust. Polanksi is a survivor so you know Jewish Hollywood loves him. And Charlie Manson killed Sharon Tate and his unborn child...so they forgive him for sodomizing that teenager. She has even come out and forgiven him. Just like the teen that R. Kelly peed on is still part of his sex stable and trains the new girls.

  • dontgetblocked

    Hell. They flew out and presented that award in person.

  • dontgetblocked

    Kendra was barely 18 when Hugh moved her into the mansion. He did this with a slew of girls for 50 years. He died a hero as you said.

  • dontgetblocked

    That's a general statement.

  • dontgetblocked

    White people are freaky as hell. There are loads of sex clubs all over the country. They're very hush hush because of the high profile and wealthy members.

  • dontgetblocked

    They trusted a man who married a 15 year old Aaliyah. A man who peed on what appeared to be an underage girl in a sex tape. A man who was indicted on 30 pornography charges. Seems like the parents are making up a lot of excuses. They saw dollar signs and sold their children away.

  • dontgetblocked

    Girl..everybody remembers that old nasty peeing sex tape.

    Well he can go to those countries because in most of those countries the legal age of consent is 16.

  • MsSapphire9800

    So he rapes your 17 yrs old daughter and you as a parent does not file charges but instead you take her to R Kelly house to live....I am going to call that some BS...the statue of limitation is still good why the FBI has not arrest him..they spoke to her and the parents.

    I personally don't care about R. Kelly. I gave up on him years ago, back in the '90s, when that pee video came out.

    They are grown women old enough to make their own decisions. OTOH, a 10-year-old boy danced in a ghey club while grown men threw dollars at him onstage. Where's the outrage for him?

  • speakinmymind

    Nice provocative write up all based in conjecture and innuendo, not fact. Alternative sexual lifestyles/preferences like S&M, swinging and others have always been taboo in the Black community. That's what he is into and it's not a cult. Some people are willing to trade sex for the money, travel and status associated with being with him, even if that means being peed on, having group sex, etc. It ain't for me but the facts are that none of them are being or were held against their will and although young, they were at or above the legal age of consent. That may not be morally right to a lot of people but it's not illegal.

  • speakinmymind

    Those are the true predators, the parents. Misled their own daughters into believing they were okay with man known have a predilection for young women.

    I remember Dave saying he ran into R. Kelly after he did that skit on his show and he was pisssssed....

  • the guest

    They should not be faulted for making their own projects. R Kelly is at fault for abusing people's dreams and ambitions as leverage for his vile objectives.

  • the guest

    Unfortunately there is a lot of complicity with oppression in the black community.

  • the guest

    R Kelly is a human trafficker, he buys access to girls and women.

  • the guest

    Speak!

  • Anji

    Sadly it's still a man's world and I too constantly observe the plight of women and girls all over this sick world. I have danced for decades with women who have been literally mutilated and subjugated and seem content with their lot because they leave their own baby girls in W. Africa to endure the same.

  • the guest

    FINALLY! Someone unafraid to say the truth. I can't believe people are complicit with R Kelly. It's a shame.

    R. Kidnap in Ethiopia recruiting girls. The dumb ass background singers are part of the problem too. I wouldn't have said a damn thing and still collect my check then report him to international authorities.

  • Allihave2say

    Justice is never too late.

  • Allihave2say

    Tell it.

  • Allihave2say

    Do you not believe the victims should have a voice to express themselves? R. Kelly has enriched himself at their expense whether it's musically or financially. If they go on tv to tell their stories for free the tv stations earn money. The blogs posting their stories and you commenting on the posts brings in money. So everyone continues to benefit off the victims except the damn victims? I tell you what, you go lay up with Rob the Slob.

    I don't believe for a minute that RK kept all those women for his own personal pleasure. I do believe that he has avoided justice because he has been in bed, literally, with some high powered people who kept his secrets. Look at how the Playboy Ranch hosted 15 yr old girls but Hugh never saw a day in jail. The Dr who gave Bill the pills was a friend of Hughes.

  • Allihave2say

    Exactly.
    I used to love Michael Jackson to the point of worship.
    My mama made me surrender all my merchandise as punishment.
    I wanted to believe he was innocent.
    As a mother hearing the same story repeatedly and I had to side with the children. I got rid of all of it.

  • Allihave2say

    It is not a behavioral choice it's conditional behavior. The drug dealers, pimps and victims are conditioned to their way of living. These derelicts are usually the ones with power and money in impoverished communities. They rule because people are poor, sick, lost, suffering and hopeless. What authority does the commoner have over people who are empowered by crime, guns, abuse, murder and the us government that funnels drugs throughout their communities?

    It doesn't matter the quietness of the community, crime is crime and wrong is wrong. I see you're a little sadistic. You like to blame the weak and the victims.

  • Whirl

    Hello again. Hope all is well with you. Not really sure where the confusion is. “Thinking” is a verb. Nothing complicated to it. You posted the that “thinking” is a verb and then in the very next paragraph set it up to support your argument of it functioning as thing ie noun. Respectfully- non sequitor. It does not follow.

  • Allihave2say

    He also shares the women amongst his peers. This is bigger than just him. He's the port but not the dock. People don't understand that these women have been trained and brainwashed to believe this is normal. It's no different than pimps who beat and drug women into submission. They always have a female who runs and manages the women for them.

  • Whirl

    Respectfully I disagree. As you pointed out “thinking” is a verb so I’m not sure why you made an argument for “thinking” functioning as a noun in the very next paragraph. I also beg to differ on your point regarding opinions and thoughts. I’m sure Immanuel Kant and John Lock would agree. I respectfully recommend John Lock’s essay on Human Understanding chapter two wherein he covers “qualities”. Be well!

  • hottlanta

    White metoo movement saying the black founder is enabling r. Kelly. Aint that a bytch.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Exactly they need to just give it up. The daughter don’t want to come back maybe she will one day. Sad that she don’t want nothing to do with them. I couldn’t imagine being that brainwashed that I didn’t call my mom. They was on the radio here in ATL last week. They regretful about the whole thing

  • Rhyme and Reason

    With all of this scrutiny, I think he’s treating her really well, and have given her incentives to ride this out.

    Our materialistic pop-culture makes young women to want to live that life they see in the media daily on IG!

    Going back home, enrolling in college, choosing a major, focusing on internships, networking, joining a sorority, or starting a small business from scratch or dating regular guys is probably not that enticing for the ones who stay!

    The parents (with some exceptions) and daughters were clout-chasing!

  • Sunshine ///

    Michael Jackson didn't pee pee on no kids. He was not a child predator banging kids out.

  • the guest

    He's acting like a perverted white man against his own. Perverted pedophile white men travel to Africa, Thailand, Caribbean to buy underage girls without social shame or scrutiny. RK will be like all the other pedophiles and go outside the US because he's been exposed in US.

  • the guest

    Speak!

  • the guest

    People don;y want to understand this, they prefer to believe a 12 year old girl is fast for being brainwashed and abused by RK, and that all those older teen and adult women like being brainwashed slaves. RK is a human trafficker and a pimp. Point Blank. Period.

  • Kayke

    You are 100% right however, they go to these places for little boys way more than little girls. Nobody talks about that.

  • Kayke

    “Didn’t make anymore mistakes”
    Pissing on a minor girl child is not a mistake..... and how can you be so enthusiastic about him honing his skills at sexually abusing young women. This isn’t something a person should get better at doing.

  • Kayke

    It’s still illegal to do what he has done with minor children. It’s still criminal. The parents who did “allow” it is also criminally responsible and that doesn’t negate his involvement.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Are you debating with me with JOHN.. LOCKE?!! In the discussion of Theology...REAAALLY.. it is quite obvious you pulled a google and really didn't take the time to really study Locke..he was known for religious TOLERANCE..and open THOUGHT.. girl...gone nah ..more big words you spent all day to make sound great. By the way.. I don't tear sisters down, I just don't tolerate ignorance in the semi form of intelligence. that is dangerous...now twirl into the closest Library and really read about Locke lol.. I do have time..

  • Whirl

    Hello again. Hope your day is going well. Actually the underpinnings of our constitution itself is based on the foundations of Locke’s teachings primarily. And as we know we have freedom of religion in this country which implicitly implies autonomy for those interested in going in a different direction. Be well! Also, I’m not sure what big words you are referencing. We are going back and forth legitimately at an 8th grade level. Nothing heavy about that.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I think this is the beginning of his fall from fame. Once your own city say they don' want you, then it's a wrap.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I completely agree! I see it in everyday life. Folks go along to get along, until the person who they've gone along with, looks bad. Secret supporters isn't anything new and he's definitely had plenty of supporters because he has money and make great music. And that's why I'm side eyeing a lot of these new folks who are jumping off his bandwagon now. They had no issues with his past behavior even after they saw the video. Now all of a sudden, they're trying to put as much distance as humanly possible, between him and themselves.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    It's a darn shame.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Victims? Listen. R Kelly is clearly a narcissist. When he's done using his supplies, he dumps them for other supplies. These women, especially the ones over 30 who messed around with him, are salty AF that he replaced them and the money stopped rolling in. What other reason did he have them for? These women are OPPORTUNISTS!

  • Bonny

    Rkelly gone Rkelly.

    Meanwhile, Harvey Weinstein case has been dismissed wake up R.

They all have skeletons you going to have to mute the industry!

  • Claudia

    When you looking for a free ride, bs comes with it! If you 30 + you damn well what you are getting into I can't mute my playlist I am sorry get a job and stop su#ckin ?until you too old for the job and now you mad cause you don't qualify anymore come on

    its going great and thanks for asking:
    Hello again. Hope your day is going swell. My tone in my writing is aggressive yes angry nah.. that's another ignorant bias that black women deal with and for you to say it sister is very intriguing.. you are anglo inspired aren't you.. You sit and write very condescending yet when I return your rhetoric back to your face I'm the problem? Mkay..So your googl search said Actually the underpinnings of our constitution itself is based on the foundations of Locke’s teachings primarily. And this is where the issue comes along for Black people as a whole.. the constitution was not designed to implement our success but suppress it. I'm quite aware of Locke's contributions. But it brings up an interesting thought though..if you believe Locke's theory..how do you then turn around and say you steer clear of them? That's interesting also.. Ok I feel I'm talking to someone quite young... I will end this because your excellent at pontificating..but never really saying much.. be well

  • Whirl

    Whelp, I could go in a deeper discussion to consider how Locke skirts this but I doubt you would be interested. I’m not sure why you feel the need to be aggressive with me since AGAIN- you aren’t being attacked. So I think I’ll leave it here. If you really want to continue this without the aggression and name calling let me know. I love philosophy.

    Such a beautiful excuse to be black

  • Allihave2say

    Yes. But before their confessions and the internet age I had to take a stand and I did. MJ should have realized that what he was doing, even if it was just the Meer appearance of doing it, was wrong. He was an adult and he knew right from wrong. He should have stopped himself and stopped the suspicions.

  • Allihave2say

    He moves like an MK Ultra Programmer. R Kelly understood well why he likened himself as the pied piper. Their are real brainwashers in this world. The techniques are so refined that the victims believe they are willing participants.

    How many times have we heard women say, "I deserved it", "I made him mad"? or the mothers who said, "my daughter is a hoe and she seduced my boyfriend". The conditional behavior is innate.

    People need to understand that governments all around the world knew about and profited from the experiments in Germany. The children in Africa were not natural killers. They were recruited, trained, coerced and inducted into a life of murder, rape, pillage and destruction of their own people. The gov't there told the Africans with HIV that sex with children would cure their HIV so they raped the children thus spreading the disease through the generations. Violators are using the same techniques as the government one it's legal when the gov't does it.

  • Allihave2say

    So many whites have adopted black kids and are keeping them as slaves via adoption. I think there should be a system that continues to check on adopted children for a period of time. I can never forget seeing a video of a married white couple with a little black girl online. The girl looked sick and scared. I can't remember why or where I saw the video I've been looking. My thought was that they are abusing her. Then there are those who adopt, kill and collect the insurance money.

    I simply don't care about what others have done when we are speaking specifically about what (1) person is STILL DOING. Yes, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein and more have gotten caught up. However, they have victimized WOMEN! Thats serious. But this dude R. Kelly has done this to children as young as 13 (ie. Aaliyah). She started with him in the studio at 13 and was married by 15. I have no sympathy for this slut ass R Kelly that likes little girls. A panic attack ain't enough bruh....JUMP!

  • Allihave2say

    Yeah it is but not as momentous or glorious as having ancestors who wrote the laws that they use to keep their filth on the streets hiding in white costumes. You know the ones who throw rocks and hide behind masks, capes and white privilege. Let's not mention the serial killers, priests who rape boys, teachers sexing kids, presidents confessing to rape or oral sex in the WH with teenagers etc. It's the black excuse that's really concerning.
