John Legend appeared in Lifetime's much-hyped docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which aired on Thursday night. Legend took to social media late Thursday to comment on his appearance after the first two episodes aired.

"To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn't feel risky at all. I believe these women and don't give a f*** about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision."

He continued:

"Also I'm happy to support the work of people like my friends at @ALongWalkHome who have been speaking out on behalf of the survivors for a long time."

Legend also thanked the series director and producer dream hampton on Twitter, writing:

"We should all thank my friend @dreamhampton for her very necessary work to create #SurvivingRKelly. These survivors deserved to be lifted up and heard. I hope it gets them closer to some kind of justice."

Legend was the only bold name celebrity who agreed to appear in the docuseries.

"It was incredibly difficult to get people who had collaborated (artistically) with Kelly to come forward," hampton told the Detroit Free Press. "We asked Lady Gaga. We asked Erykah Badu. We asked Celine Dion. We asked Jay-Z. We asked Dave Chappelle -- people who have been critical of him. That makes John Legend even more of a hero for me."

The six-part docuseries focused on the testimonies of multiple women who claim the R&B singer/songwriter molested and abused them over the years.

The 51-year-old singer was accused of molesting several young women -- one as young as 14 -- over the past 2 decades. Kelly was acquitted of 21 charges of child pornography in a highly emotional trial in his native Chicago in 2008.

Since then he has faced more accusations -- including allegations that he kept a harem of young women hostage in 2 mansions in the suburban Atlanta area. But no charges were filed against him.

    Damn RK, you've got issues.

  • Blue

    I damn near needed counseling after watching that.

  • Love Luv

    Let me explain it for John better...

    I’m just trying to get a check. It’s a character working not me. - John Legend https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/af0b5d59575cdd4dbd1711b2cf0ea93432d3d6359f74cb7dc04e1ac0c5a9f12e.jpg

  • MsVAllDay

    LOL

  • free

    why were they asking celebrities to be in it?

  • Blue

    I think the specific celebs they asked where connected with RKelly in the music biz somehow. They worked with him and/or had friendships with him.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I don't think John Legend said anything that condoned what that sick bastard did. But the doc was sooooo heavy to watch last night and poor Aaliyah my heart aches for the sacrifices she had to make because she had no resources nowhere to turn when your own parents is pimping you out. I completely see why this man has never been charged because all the parents was in on this fukery! The Manager/personal Asst whatever he was should be locked up with him! Lets not talk about the part where Sparkle said his wife had to knock on the door to ask permission to come down to get something to eat. That was so sad and she was so embarrassed to admit it when they asked her about it. This man is sick!!!! I can believe I was a fan! I will NEVER see him in concert ever again!

  • Well$$Well$$?

    It was disturbing af.

  • Marlika

    So when are they going to do a docuseries on the rest of the pedofiles???

    I don’t have a problem with this at all, what I have a problem with is this the YT pedofiles are always protected, lifted and praised.

    R. Kelly is a very sick sick man, but he’s not the only one.

    Hollywood’s makes sure that the whites ones names and images don’t get dragged in the mood like we do with Black folks.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    They mention one or two of them in the doc.

  • isaiit

    You aint never lied. I was so disturbed on so many levels. All of those people that knew laughing and reminiscing about how they helped him. just yuck

  • FukkFolks2019

    My guy hardly EVER drinks. Like 6 drinks total a year. He had one last night and aint even drink on NYE.

  • luVn_liFe…

    this was a terribly disturbing doc.. but needed for ALL his victims. I am slightly perturbed that some are feeling Aalyiah is the ONLY "true" victim.. daFugg!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Ha! lol

  • Well$$Well$$?

    With this #metoo movement they're coming for the sprites too. There was a doc called an Open Secret that talked about Hollyweird's pedophilia problem. Like R Kelly nothing happened to those men either. Smdh.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    That documentary is was very triggering and turned my stomach!

    The comment “we were black girls no one would care” made me sick to my damn stomach. This man deserves to be under the f*cking jail. All these oh they went willingly etc etc. At the age of 14 you arent going anywhere willingly youre not even legal to consent. I had so many questions like where were the parents. Kelly had so many enablers (his assistant, that nasty ass brother who said thats his preference) I just can not

    John standing up for these women kudos. No one else in the music industry stood up for this girls.

    Whole thing is disgusting

  • tia

    RKelly is a twisted, sick and demented individual. The sister molested him and the brother and no telling who else and the cycle just kept on going. Robert seems kinda of slow as well or slightly MR. No excuses, just doesn't seem like the elevators go to the top. After watching his interviews and his responses to questions, it's almost like he is child like. Whatever the case, this might be the nail in the coffin.

    Gifted and talented artist, but sexual degenerate to the highest power.

  • Trey

    Legend is mad because his music career will never live up to Kelly's

  • Blue

    Right!

  • Blue

    Wow

  • free

    r kelly is low-hanging fruit. the chicago newspaper spent at least a DECADE trying to bring r kelly down but simply could not do it, even with all their resources.

    nobody is gonna put that amount of effort into a white pedophile. and you damn sure ain't gonna see a 3-day, 6-part miniseries on a specific white celebrity.

  • Marlika

    Thanks, I’m going to look into the doc.
    They need one on Woody Allen’s sick ass, Jerry Lewis, Elvis and so on. But we all know that won’t happen. I even believe Weinstein won’t do a day in jail. At the end of the day his a Jew and his people will quietly protect him. ?????

  • isaiit

    After watching the documentary last night no one and I mean no one should ever care about R. Kelly's music. He's a true freak of nature and a low down predator. Child rapist. John Legend will always be better than that man that preys on pre-teens

  • Jordan’s Memory

    They touched on Elvis for half a second.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Not for nothing.. there was a disgusting pedo case brought against JEFFREY EPSTEIN from palm beach county.. he was rapeing young YT girls and was finally charged convicted and got a slap on the wrist. So in gist yeah it seems there only looking past the young blk girls..they are looking pass ALL young girls!
    look up Epstein..Don Trumps FRIEND who one of the young girls said was involved in the perverted ShYte too.

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    Tuh! Robert was telling us his about sexual deviancy since Bump and Grind. Please believe it!

  • Love Luv

    Did RKelly really think he was going to end his lifetime movie days before with a threatened lawsuit while he was being evicted in another lawsuit. Yeah delusional.

    I have had MORE than my share of observations with others and people wonder why I don’t ever get star struck or I stayed with one person so long. (Leaving him finally). It’s because sick sick SICK people are out there grooming common law brides for lack of a better phrase.

    He’s free now. Should’ve done something earlier. The time to protect your kids is forever but best prior to 16. At 18 nothing the law can do for you. RKelly FINALLY started monitoring the age as close to legal as possible. GET IN YOUR KIDS HEADS AND KEEP FRIENDS/NON SPOUSES OUT YOUR CHILDS HOME AND SPACE! It’s the best you can do.

    I don’t have the medication to help me withstand speaking of what I know BUT parents watch the teachers, counselors, friends of friends and never second guess yourself once. Spaghetti always sticks to the wall if you cooked the right noodle long enough to expose the stickiness. Can’t just throw it in water and leave.

  • free

    john legend prolly know and work with at least 3 people doing the same shit. the fact that he felt the need to pat himself on the back is a bit weird to me.

  • Gloria

    ?? that documentary had me sick to my stomach. But it was long overdue for these victims voices to be heard.

    John Legend was one of the few musical artists willing to participate. Artists like Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, and Erykah Badu all declined to be apart of the documentary. These people are STILL trying to protect this pedophile.

  • Marlika

    Yes I remember when they were trying to get him.

    The parents of these victims need to be put on blast a well!! Its sad when the parent know but turn and look the other way!!

    Sad but true no series will be done on no clear celebrity like this.???????

  • luVn_liFe…

    nawhh stuff has been talked abut before.. google Jeffrey Epstein

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I agree and its a damn shame. People give rich folks/celebs a pass for things we would throw everything but the kitchen sink at for a regular person for.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He's "defending" his decision? The man has has nothing to defend. He did the right thing.

  • free

    i wouldn't speak in the documentary either. dream should present her facts and let it be about the victims. why would lady gaga have anything to say about r kelly being a pedophile? take that sh*t to the police and the DA, not lady gaga.

  • Blue

    When that Sparkle, after being around RK for all that time, said she introduced him to her 13 year old niece I almost unplugged my tv for the year. Craziness.

  • Marlika

    But you know that man is GOD to them. They be ready to kill anyone who puts dirt on that pedo-thieves name!

  • luVn_liFe…

    maybe the other celebs couldnt speak on this because it was TOO Much for them. Sure they're "superheros" to some and should speak on travesty's and injustices and everything the everyday layman cant be heard on.. however some just cant.

  • tia

    not only the parents put on blast, but many of the folks on that panel last night. They disclosed they saw him in bed with Aaliyah and other inappropriate behavior, but not one of those persons said anything? That's very unsettling.

  • luVn_liFe…

    thank you!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    John Legend is a decent human being who can look at himself in the mirror knowing he's not a child sexual predator. I dont think R Kelly can say the same thing. Some things in life are more important than money or career success.

  • Trey

    That has nothing to do with what I said.....Kelly music is established classics and it pains Legend that's the case.....if Kelly was a nobody..he would have no opinion

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    Saw that story and it's even more disturbing. Seems the common denominator is people with money get away with crazy shit.

  • what?why

    Obviously those that declined didn't want their name dragged in it for a reason! Wait till their daughters become socially active - um-m-m-m

    Refreshing that someone (John Legend) has a moral compass. Thank You

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I think people in that day in age don't look at it as bad because most was married with a kid at 16 but today we consider that shyt sick!!!! and if I was living but then I would consider it sick then too!!!!!

  • Marlika

    ? OMG!! I didn’t watch this and won’t. I have a very strong hatred for pedofiles. But this is very disturbing to hear. ?

  • Trey

    "Im not trying to be rude......"

  • luVn_liFe…

    Yes,Exactly. back then girls were married at 16 having babies at 13; it was an epidemic.
    Just like molestation and incest in EVERY race of families!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I agree the parents should be put on blast. I read that Aaliyah's mon is denying that he sleep with her and that they were married. smdh stfu with the lies!!!!

  • Gloria

    The musical artists interviewed were his working peers- people he has collaborated with so they were to speak on their professional and personal relationship with him. He did a lot of suspicious and disturbing things in the studios with underage girls that his colleagues can attest to, Along with his controlling antics. But ok ????? ?If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything

  • Hill Candy

    OFFTOPIC: Can we get a story on...B. Smith (bless her heart) & her husband Dan and his side chick/mistress living together.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Yes the theme on social media was/is where were the parents.. obviously being paid a couple hundred dollars here and there. Lizette one of the young ladies that spoke said after he he finally gave her a veneral disease and she was hospitalized he sent her mother $1000 and never heard from him again,

  • Sha

    Yes, they said it was too much.

  • luVn_liFe…

    it was TOO much to WATCH! just sad and Fcuked up on so many levels

  • justlooking

    Listen Friend, go back to the other post. Folks was like well do a post on the Pope, Wood Allen. HUH? My response, they not discussing them tonight. Folks stanning for him, got me shook.

  • Junkanoo

    I've never been a huge fan of John Legend but he may have won me over. Shame on Mary J Blige an Erykah Badu for declining to speak out against R Kelly and the sexual exploitation in the entertainment industry when this show reached out to them.

  • Gloria

    What got me was when that 17 year old girl, who was messing around with him for years, said he had her doing threesomes with a 14 year old. I’ve never felt so disgusted.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    He shouldn't even have to defend himself for doing this. I honestly do not want to watch it and I am not going to watch it because I've heard the stories from coworkers that went to the schools that R. Kelly use to hang around. It was some sick mess to hear.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's interesting how so many people are outraged/dismayed/disgusted by this now that it'sall been laid out in this documentary. But this hasnt really been a secret. This has been known for a good 20+ years. I think a lot of people were just being willfully blind, and willing to turn the other way as long as he was putting out good music.

  • luVn_liFe…

    nawhh Mary has been dealing with her own issues and battles with molestation, rape,domestic violence and drug abuse. She owes herself the right to NOT be triggered and deal and speak with this publicly,

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    A lot of ppl are fake caring about the issue. They still going to his concerts and buying his music.

  • free

    so you are saying that, during the course of their working relationship, that jay, lady gaga, and erykah badu witnessed r kelly engaging in pedophilia? and then declined to alert the authorities? or then continued to work with him after seeing this?

  • Marlika

    Please this guy got a HUGH ( in my Trump voice) slap on the wrist! HUGH! He gets to go to a private fed prison instead of State. Then he gets to hire his own security detail to follow him around in prison in his own private wing at that! He only did 13 of the 18 months and he was still allowed to travel on his private jet between the states to his owns on private islands and homes else where.

    So He got off easily and probaly still is. He’s a Jew with money!!

    He may be a registered level 3 sex offender but that doesn’t mean shit to a billionaire. I bet this guy is still doing the same thing probaly just more discreet now. He needs a bullet to his head! Period!!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker
  • luVn_liFe…

    people aren't EVEN fake caring.. just like he said in the begining in that FBlive clip lifetime showed.. he has a million haters but 10 million supporters

  • FukkFolks2019

    Jerry Lewis, Elvis
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Both painted as a love story bc they married the underaged girls. Jerry Lee Lewis lost it all not bc Myra was 13, but bc she was his 2nd cousin. Many were grossed out by that more than her age, bc as posters below said, it was the culture of the time. The movie "Great Balls of Fire" chronicles it.

    Elvis and Priscilla have had mad movies. And her parents I have seen got dragged. Bc he pure brung her here all the way from Germany. How the hell you send your underaged girl to a MAN across the damn WORLD?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Smh, you are right...it's terrible. Folks just don't care.

  • justlooking

    I got sick to my stomach

  • HotInCleveland

    Already been done.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I just kept thinking... where were some of these parents? If its 9:30, 10 o'clock at night and you dont know where your 14 year old daughter is... or she's on a tour bus with a bunch of adults, I have to give you a serious side-eye.

  • free

    i'm hoping dream will address these parents who want their kids in show business so bad. remember, the DA brought the case; it was the PARENTS who took the bribe that resulted in him winning his case.

  • Gloria

    That’s reaching. NONE of us know how much these people were exposed to his predatory actions. They are keeping their mouths shut ?, probably to save face.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Yeah I know and agree. my point is and was it isn;t just about Blk young girls being ignored.. but ALL girls being ignored.

  • Marlika

    ? WOW!

  • Junkanoo

    All the more reason to speak out ,your not making much sense

  • FukkFolks2019

    They laid it all out in the 2nd episode about him hiding in plain sight. In fact that was the name of the episode-Hiding In Plain Sight. How he was able to trick people, make music, get folks to sympathize, forget, continue to be willfully blind. All of it. It was amazing how they broke it down really. Its truly some mind fukkery.

  • justlooking

    Blue I tossed and turned for hours.

    Then some crazy person, couldn't have been R Kel cause he can barely read or write

    responded with
    Woody Allen Roman Polanski, Hugh Hefner and Catholic Church...WTH. Whilst that may be true, they damn sho wasn't airing that last night. FOLKS ARE SICK

  • Blue

    And she said it like it was nothing

  • luVn_liFe…

    Im at work with a pile of files on my desk but am too bothered not to at least vent on here about this sick shYte

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I want to know why does it take 6 hour documentary to tell us, what we have known for YEARS. There are adults out here who know nothing us about R.Kelly other than he is a predator. Not to disrespect the victims..., but we heard the victim's and the witnesses accounts, and RK's modus operandi remained the same. So can i assume the remaining 4 hours of the documentary will expose the adults, parents included that watched this happening

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's always been sad and sick to me. These people always want to point to "What about this white man/ that white man", etc. They want to make it all racial, but they forget that these were mostly BLACK girls that R.Kelly was victimizing.

  • FukkFolks2019

    Erykah I was a tad pissed bc she has teen girls.

    And someone sent me this last night about first name Erukka last name Badu:

    She on mute with me now. I never knew this. Fukk her.

  • FukkFolks2019

    Was post last week and he a POS

  • jwoo250

    There needs to be a docuseries on Quincy Jones next. Why not expose them all.

  • Connie

    I think the documentary provided more dark details that some, including myself, didn't expect. my mind was blown!

  • Gloria

    Same thing I was thinking. How are these parents allowing their babies to just be around this grown man like this?! Did R Kelly brainwash the parents too and got them to “trust” him to that extent? It’s hard to believe.

  • MsSapphire9800

    I am not defending R Kelly...but he was just investigated by the FBI and Chicago pull all resources to bring him down....the FBI cleared him and the Chicago Police Chief that swore he would bring Kelly down has not spoke a word since his investigation found nothing....than Lifetime reached out to these women...not saying they are lying but something is not right...and his ex wife...had several platforms to speak her truth after R Kelly left her..but only when Lifetime stepped in..she cried tears.

  • free

    no, it's reaching to expect these artists to get out there and speak on sh*t just cause you asked. BELIEVE that dream done witnessed (and done) some sh*t that she ain't talking about too cause she been in the industry, especially back when she was a journalist.

  • FukkFolks2019

    THIS! THIS right here. This is the answer to all of the folks who KEEP hollering well it didnt uncover anything new. Ummm it did. Even I was floored. I never thought Sparkle was going to talk and I was interested in what Drea had to say as well. Never thought either were going to say anything and take it to their grave.

  • LeeSeeCee

    I never understood how ANYONE could support him, especially after that trial. He's just a sick, sick man. I couldn't even listen to his music after reading the details of the trial. Used to p*ss folks off in my car when I would change the station. Nope. Not supporting a sick sexual deviant.

  • free

    after the VIDEO!

  • luVn_liFe…

    new Post

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    what are you saying when you say something is not right? are you implying it's unfair to r.kelly that he is being exposed? I am asking for clarification as to what you mean

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I understand...it's something that should be discussed.

  • Gloria

    Many pedophiles and rapists are found innocent in court.....

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. They might be sounding all "outraged" right now... but if R. Kelly announced a tour and was coming to their city, they'd be tripping over themselves to get some tickets.

  • Fire & Ice

    Exactly! In the black community predatory men, are given a cloak of protection. The young victims are often blamed, and called fast. It took white ass lifetime network, to call foul on this. Dude married a child, is on tape raping one, and child ponography was seized at his florida home. Yet, he still had the support.of black people SMH.

  • Rere

    I would love to see this!!

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Well whose going to punish him? No one! Not your spaghetti monster, bigfoot, the tooth fairy or Elmer Fudd!

  • Connie

    Exactly! The most profound thing for me was the enabling that occurred! His handlers/assistants whatever they're called are just as sick and should be behind bars!

  • MsSapphire9800

    No...I am referring to R. Kelly...I am referring to the FBI investigation..because most people will say he paid the local...but when the FBI stepped in I know they spoke to all his accusers.

  • FukkFolks2019

    and his ex wife...had several platforms to speak her truth after R Kelly left her..but only when Lifetime stepped in..she cried tears.
    ^^^^^^^^^^
    Few things:

    Her kids are older now. Im sure she didnt want to do all of this when they were younger. All except one is now over 18, and he is 17.

    One of them has decided to change their gender, and its largely thought to be as a direct result of this clusterfukk.

    He didnt leave her. She packed her shit, called her daddy and took her kids and bounced. and that was after numerous times of trying to leave and having his goons run after her and return her to him.

    SHE TOO WAS A VICTIM.

  • SummerBaby

    I saw it mentioned in here & a few other places about the celebs that didn’t want to be part of the documentary. I don’t feel like it was necessary for them to be included. Wendy from an gossip entertainer side made sense. Big Lez made sense based on the Video Soul interview otherwise I think too many celebs would take away from us really hearing the victims...in my opinion

  • MsPam

    Tell the truth and shame the devill??

  • Bossy704

    I was wondering why everybody was talking about these old charges he was acquitted of. If you are a woman post 2008 that went to one of his mansion compounds that's on you sis.

  • FukkFolks2019

    He never approached hardly ONE girl. They did it for him. Knowing what time it was

  • Rere

    I believe that R. Kelly is a pedofile, I can't believe so many people trusted their kids with them AFTER the Aaliyah situation!!! I am Aaliyah's age I would never, my mom would never let me be alone w/a grown man PERIOD!! Alot of girl's wanted that fame so they (family included) accepted what he gave. Alot of people knew. Everyone should be prosecuted since they want to tell their story now...

  • Phillybruh

    This is the black community they have been turning a blind eye to this for years. This documentary was less about R.Kelly and his exploits than it was about us and the fuckery we as community allow.

  • Mielle Downey

    Speak out for victims yes, but being a diet woke celebrity is becoming very stale. This man and his flat pumpkin face wife annoy the hell out of me . Where was Johnny come lately and his wife when all of the trifling stuff was going down in the music industry and still is ? and his light step around their slore friends Kim and Kanye. It seems pumpkin face and Johnny come lately do what is right when it suits them and if it pisses off their friends or effects their career they are silent.

  • MsSapphire9800

    No...he left her...she spoke on it on Hollywood Ex's...he went to the movies and came home and told her...he didn't want to be marry any more..and I don't care what age your children are...if you know your husband is messing with underage girls and you sit back and say nothing...you are part of the problem...Andrea is a very outspoken woman.

  • SummerBaby

    The first 2 parts are the history on his childhood & the late 80’s early 90’s. The next 2 parts will be how the justice system failed our girls. The last 2 parts will be the current stuff.

  • TriniHarlem

    I was never interested in any of this for a good 20 years ago. I don't need details on a pedophile, rapist etc. The name in of itself says it all. I been good for two decades now. Been done so nothing more for me to dwell on.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Its probably alot of scared people out there afraid they're next to be exposed.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yes, its time! More men like Legend, are going to have to speak up. Protecting and supporting predators has to STOP.

  • Rere

    This documentary should be called, "Everybody knew"

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    That video Soul interview was jarring?

  • SummerBaby

    She was very much victimized by him. She had to ask him if she could even leave the room & to eat.

  • Mielle Downey

    I believe that there are many pedophiles that Johnny come lately knows about but will not say anything about in the industry. I believe Johnny wife knows about the pedophiles in the modeling industry but they will only out people who have already been outed. how convenient of them.

  • free

    what quincy did?

  • Renee26

    Didn't watch.. Babe turned to it for 2 minutes then we went back to watching Death Wish 3

    Ion support RKelly in any way and didn't need the details considering he hasn't been held accountable for his actions. No need in getting myself all worked up when his victims won't get justice.

  • SummerBaby

    I watched it back in the day when it aired, but to watch it with fresh eyes. ???

  • MsSapphire9800

    That is what she is saying now...but she had a platform on Holly Ex's and told a different story...that is why one of the women from this documentary went after her...saying she is using them.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Do lifetime gon fo this before R Kelly bday on January 8th? Savages

  • Renee26

    Or "young black girls are unprotected" people act like little black girls don't deserve protection from predators... They're just labeled as fast or hot in the pants

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    You're probably right, but in my opinion shedding light on it may make some people think about the shyt they be on.

  • Rayne

    And that’s exactly why they won’t speak up.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I share a similar sentiment as you. It makes no sense. These women knew he married Aaliyah and was possibly the person in the sex tape and still carried on with this man. Now there is money to be made and they singing a tale.

  • FukkFolks2019

    I disagree. It needs to be Puffy. And THAT is where dream hampton becomes problematic to me personally. You were supposedly Biggie bff, and you been in the game for 30 years damn near as a hip hop journalist. I know your ass knows SOMETHING about Puffy and those young boys. Its a huge conflict of interest so I know its never gonna happen.

    in all fairness, they did bring a case. they just couldn't get him. that's my thing. the case was based on one girl, who probably was under ENORMOUS pressure. imagine if all these chicks had been co-defendants? i BET they were approached because i remember the chicago newspaper was getting tips and stories from everybody.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    I have always dated (and had my 2 kids by) a older man and still do til this day....... If RK was in my hood I would of went too......He is DEAD wrong for messing with under age girls, but I'm not mad at him for preferring younger women 18+........I've had my father all my life until he passed so no Daddy issues here.......SO what is it called when younger women prefer to date older men? As long as the women are of legal age, I cant trip on that.....IMO

    Robert parading his then 13-14 yrs old gf/fiancée/wife in plain sight with the help of label execs and everything??! Yea...very disturbing. Then instructed her to not tell her age. ALL the label execs, bodyguards, assistants, backup dancers, singers, etc...knew. It’s black girls/women he exploited and abused, so no one cares ?. Even after they was thousands of child pornography found. One of them child porn even made it to court.., still NOT a single soul cared. It’s black girls/women he abused

    Not a single fact in any of what you typed. What you BELIEVE doesn't equate to fact. We get it, you dislike John Legend and his wife. This is about the victims not how many celebrities knew what and when.

    oh baby she knows!!! i just said that in another post. she knows who to fugg with and who not to which is why i call r kelly low hanging fruit.

  • FukkFolks2019

    For me she a huge ass hypocrite. She wrote Decoded with Jay-Z. But did she put in there that he was fukkin a 16 yo Inga? And there was a NEVER published book on Jay that SHE ALSO WROTE. His ass a pedo too. And then what I said above about Puff. She is just a fake carer IMO. She cares about gender disparity and all of this other shit supposedly, but she cloaks for who she WANTS TO CLOAK FOR. A child is a child is a child is a child. Either you riding for all teen girls the same and if you arent I wanna know why? Folks up here saying the parents, the kids, Kellz, the adults who knew. HER ASS KNOW SOME SHIT TOO.

  • MsSapphire9800

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That is very true. in this case you are right the girls was hot in the pants MOST of them, and they still needed and deserved protection from there parents, sadly, in this case I think the parents was his enabler. These girls met this man in random places like a mall. Most girls would be grossed out at the thought of a older man talking to them and would run the other way, but he was famous and they THOUGHT if they gave him what he wanted they would be famous too and they pretty much sold their soul for the fame that never happened. A couple of them would say oh when I told him I was a teenager I thought he would be turned off, no hun you knew that because u was a teenager that would be the reason why he would want you, and they all thought there were the only one and you used that to ur advantage and it didn't work out like they thought.

  • Mielle Downey

    People knew that Hollywood was a cesspool of rapist and pedophiles then we find out the same man who Ms Obama and Hillary called a great man was a rapist in walks Harvey. The modeling industry has be rife with Pedophiles and the young age of the models attracts a kind of person that lacks morals. I believe we should hold these woke celebrities accountable.

  • Trace da Ace

    Well good for John Legend for standing up for what is right....

    I don't mind dating an older man (4 to 6+ years older). I actually prefer it. Not vouching on him preying on these young young girls. That's sick! I know when I was in my early 20s, I dated a man 14 yrs older than me. But in hindsight, nig was a perv. *shudders at the thought* My dad was in my life as well. So right, no daddy issues here. I am the youngest of 13 children. I have 9 brothers, (the oldest being 71), who spoiled me to death. So I get the older dating when of age. All that messing with little girl's???? NAH SON!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, seeing them wearing matching outfits like boyfriend and girlfriend... might have seemed innocent, or even "cute" to the viewers at the time.

    Why should he have too, he's a black man, taking a stand against this black predator.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I was never allowed to spend the night at other peoples house at that age. At the age of 12, 13 and up, I wasn't attracted to men in their 20s either. There's a lot of blame to go around, the parents, R Kelly and even the victims need to take responsibility. None of them were physically held against their will, they had the option to go but kept coming back thats what I don't understand.

  • Mielle Downey

    Exactly, all of that. They always use our own to tear each other down. John legend knows all about the sic stuff that happens and his selective outrage is telling. you mean to tell me this guy was around the sex tape Kartashians and his wife is friends with them and it's all leave it to beaver and nothing out of the ordinary happened ? Kayne admitted he has a sex addiction and porn habit?come on this is really selective outrage n his part.

  • Prettybootnikki

    From what I heard, it was the sister. The brother did a live show on YouTube with Tasha K a little while ago. And that’s what he said. The brother Carey. And I also heard Alyaha’s family own the masters to his records.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Yeah, why did he make it a duet? My thing w Aaliyah, when she got married where were her parents? They didn't really say what came of the baby. The pics of her, her eyes were so vacant and empty it was sad.

  • Parent

    sho did. Jay first then Dame. Did you see how Lifetime aired the Aaliyah story right before Surviving R Kelly. Messy. But it was interesting how they portrayed Aaliyah and Dames relationship like they were truly in love with each other.

  • Prettybootnikki

    I can’t recall why the eldest brother is in prison. I think the baby brother Carey shared that info as well on the you tube show he did with Tasha. It was a very raw and sad show he did. He was crying really hard. And you can tell it still affects him to this day. Did y’all notice the only sister was not a part of the 2 shows that aired last night on lifetime?? But that oldest brother was giving me gayness vibes last night when I was watching him. Lol I was just a laughing. I don’t even think he noticed his body language

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    SPECIALLY HOMIE THAT FORGED THE DOCS!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Eapecially that music producer that looked SO disgusted while discussing ALL the different instances when he saw NUMEROUS young girls in the studion or parties waiting in rooms to have “relations” with R Kelly! R Kelly had EVERYBODY around him under mind control?.

    Wondering why him and Jay Z fell out that caused them to end their successful tour??

    Oh so Dame had some input for the movie?

  • Prettybootnikki

    Agree!!! Gay for stay.

  • Ni Ni

    Right. They might as well shut the whole entertainment industry down.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I bet he was in on messing with the girls Kelly didn't want, he looked pedo-ish too!

  • TMW

    To me, this wasn’t really about R. Kelly. There were no revelations In this for me from the perspective of him being a total pedophile and perv. We’ve known that for years. Too many women have the same or similar stories about him for there not to be some truth to them.

    What’s disturbing is how all of those around him enabled him, and never said a word. How WE (yes the collective one) the black community did not do enough to run this man underground after the Aaliyah scandal and after the trial. How we collectively failed the women that came after Aaliyah and the girls on the sex tape.

    My heart is heavy today. This is an indictment of US. We have got to do better.

  • Parent

    I could have swore they said, They thought she was pregnant. Not actually pregnant. But then again maybe to save her image they didn't want to air out that she aborted.

  • Parent

    Me too! I was thinking about this post while I was watching last night. I said the Rose garden gon be bumping..

  • luVn_liFe…

    talking bout.. they went to get ice cream and hung out. it was cute he said.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Exactly! More black men need to stand up for whats right and take a stand against what is wrong! Too many soft poosay dudes out here forgetting that a woman gave birth to them AND raised them???

    Not that I know of.. I know I read his take before on Aaliyah

  • Rere

    Thank you! My mom did not allow me to spend the night over friends house period! Looking back, that was a good thing. Now I am the same way w/my kid's & I have sons ...our children are being hunted by predator's

  • Parent

    I'm pretty sure Aaliyah was of age though when Jay and Dame came around.

  • luVn_liFe…

    we wernt allowed to spend the night ANYWHERE either.. is Chritina's voice "4Whet you got a damn bed here!"

  • Rere

    Smh! This should have never happened

  • Parent

    Very true.

  • Rere

    Yup, now they mad. Selling their stories, they should have talked then when they seen it happening

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Right. Dame and Jay Z were passing her around! Then they made it seem like she was Dames main chick because Dame caught feelings for her when she was really feeling Jay.
    MESSY!

  • Rere

    Money!

  • Rere

    That's exactly what this is all about Money!! If he would still had them on his payroll everyone would still be quiet.

  • Parent

    You know I was a little confused as to why John appeared. It's not like they ever collaborated or anything.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Also, the girl in the video claimed it wasn’t her. Sparkle said her entire family was divided over this. She and others believe the young lady in the video to be her niece, BUT the girl’s parents and others said it wasn’t. Possibly out of shame, out of $$ ????? Also, Kelly’s gf at the time testified that THEY BOTH smashed this little girl. She got clemency for her testimony.

    I think lack of care for black women is why he hasn’t been formally charged. When this happens to yt ladies, it’s the end of the MF world ?????

    Yes, young naive minds. Not fast IMO but immature and naive to life. Their minds aren't developed to be able to make proper decisions. With approx 80% of blk females reporting some form of sexual abuse before the age of 18 (Dub shared link below) there's a serious lack of protection and sexual education to these girls. They're not taught self worth and these predators see it and pounce on them.

    And I don't blame her for not wanting them around. But tell her, we don't fear them anymore.

    Yea wtf was that?!?! ????? Trying to placate the situation. There’s NOT A DAMN THING CUTE about a 27 year old with a 15 year old ??????

  • Joy King

    R Kelly is a predator but he's also a victim. He was sexually abused as a child and the man is illiterate. He's a prime example of what can happen when kids are abused and don't get the help they need. Many will grow up and also abuse.

    A few of those women also pissed me off, especially Sparkle. One minute you're clowning R Kelly's wife for basically being dumb, but then you're dumb enough to entrust your 12 year old niece with a man who has a pattern of questionable behavior. Then the one woman who engaged in a threesome with R Kelly, but was devastated to learn the girl was only fourteen when she thought she was really sixteen. So you didn't find it equally as disgusting to have a threesome with a sixteen year old girl too. Everyone wanted to blame R Kelly but nobody wanted to take responsibility for their own actions. Water seeks it's own level. All of them need therapy.

    negro Fcking Please!

  • TMW

    She apparently missed the whole thing about her daughter getting married at 15...where was she? Or was she complicit? Because I believe at the time, her parents and her management denied any knowledge of the marriage taking place. So who was with her on tour?

  • Yoni7

    As they should be. LOL

  • oshh16

    Just read a headline about the number of minors being married in Ohio last week. In some Asian rural countries they steal the girls from their parents homes at night, a tradition that is supposed to be outlawed but still goes on etc etc etc.

  • Candance

    I have mixed feelings about R. Kelly but i am happy these women got to tell their story. Sometimes closures just involves someone listening, and we all heard last night!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That’s the irony and manipulation at play. Women thinking he won’t harm me, then BAM ? got the niece smh.

  • luVn_liFe…

    YES! I didnt want to watch.. but after someone stated that the young ladies telling their story was probably closure and they deserved to be heard.. I sighed but DID watch

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Wait, Kelly is so meticulous that he told her how to run her hands through her damn hair! How to walk! What to wear.

    The man is a diabolical visionary!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    The ending took me out, the last young lady. I was sickened, shocked and angry. My answer was always he should of been locked up in 1994 and he needs DEEP help too but i was surprised at hearing it.

  • Phillybruh

    Unless he's messing with children then throw the stones John.

  • Rere

  • TMW

    I watched something really powerful in reaction to this today. The lady said manipulation is witchcraft. That you don’t even know that you have been (or how badly) manipulated until you are on the other side of it.

    You think to yourself, as a reasonable, rational person “how could anyone allow that - they had to KNOW what was going on?”

    In Sparkle’s case, it doesn’t seem she ever had a relationship with R. Kelly (too old for him I’m sure), but he made her comfortable in other ways, and gained her trust, treated her like one of the boys, like family. She introduced him to her niece hoping he could give her a career. He manipulated her too.

    I think of myself as smart, got some common sense, but I have been manipulated in a relationship before. Only when I was on the other side of it did I realize just how under a spell I was.

  • TMW

    Which makes me wonder just how psychologically damaged she was after R. Kelly.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Yea. Then he forged documents ????? LOL I don’t like him!

  • Russiancreme

    R Kelly is a nasty freak. He got exposed to sex/turned out at a very young age by a family member. This mess was written. And he flaunted his nastiness all during the 90s/00s. Singing about age ain't nothing but a number while married to a 15yo. Now that I'm older I'm starting to see what older people mean when they talk about 'devil's music'.

  • NewNew

    Tasha K did an interview with the brother and he claims that an older sister molested Robert.

  • luVn_liFe…

    right, Sparkle may have felt. me/kelly are cool and he respects me.. and would respect my niece as such.
    for shame

  • Russiancreme

    Sparkle gets the biggest side eye. They touched on it really briefly, but Sparkle knew R Kelly before he really blew up. The other girl who met Robert at age 14 before he really blew up said Sparkle was his first/original backup singer. She was privy to all of Rob's deviant ways and served her niece up on a silver platter because she wanted her to have fame and money "like Bow Wow".

    That’s what women don’t get. He may not do the same thing to you but he’s gonna do ya. That’s who he is. If he walked away from a family or children he’ll walk away from you. If he abused one woman he’ll abuse or manipulate the next. Once we get this, these no good men will be left in the open.

  • Russiancreme

    Same as now. A childhood friend of mine got pregnant at age 12 back in '01. Her bd was 20 at the time and well known in the streets still to this day. Her momma never called the police because he supported all of them. Just like these girls parents who allowed their teen daughters to fly around the country chasing a clearly over sexualized male who only redeeming quality was his fame and money.

    I always thought it was strange when young girls wanted grown men. Something odd about it.

  • Fire & Ice

    Thank you!!! I'm so sick of black people making excuses, for this sick, toxic behavior. R Kelly is a predator and pedophile! He should have been in jail a longggggg ass time ago ?. If Aaliyah's parents had held his feet to the fire, a lot of girls could have been protected.

  • Oh Tommie

    What book?

  • Faux Gibbler

    The problem is RK promises these young girls stardom.

    R. Kelly was wrong, BUT where the hell were the parents of 14-16 year old girls? It’s one thing to “be fast” and sneak, it’s a horse of another color to “serve” your child on a silver platter! As a matter of fact lock ALL of their behinds up INCLUDING the music teacher, she knew too!

  • Oh Tommie

    Right! I cringed when he said it’s too late, they should’ve come after him 30 years ago

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That’s the vibe I get too. It’s obvious he’s used money to cover his tracks.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    BINGO!

  • Russiancreme

    We think alike bc that music teacher for sure knew what was what. As a student she had to tell him to tone done his lyrics. Years later after his success and he back on campus flirting with girls and no adults had even an inkling that he was a perv? That retired cop sat his pig ahh on camera saying he thought it was strange. Like damn even the law gets starsturck.

    I saw on Twitter someone say guys like r Kelly will be stopped when society stops worshipping fame and money. His friends and team and even his victim's parents were blinded by money .

    That is how some white people who see racism but choose to do nothing about it thinks. They see it happening but want to turn a blind eye to it. I am not calling you a racist, I am just comparing how people remain complicit to things all because they either directly benefit from it or are enamored by it.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Totally agree! I was floored by that admission (Sparkle as an OG back up singer). I’m assuming Sparkle was naive and thought her “homeboy” wouldn’t do that to her family.

  • FukkFolks2019

    Biggest side eye of the night for me aint come from the docu. Unless its coming later. Barry Hankerson. Aaliyah's maternal uncle. In my social media monitoring last night...I read that he stayed on Kellz team...FIVE YEARS after the shit with his niece went down. And THEN had the NERVE to write a letter to Kellz shrink stating he had a deep seated issue with young girls before he left.

    All the folks blaming Sparkle marinate on that. Aunts AND Uncles to blame.

    Now it makes sense y Sparkle didn't really blow up! All I can hear is, "Wait a minute, lemme finish"?and how EVERY one of those women said they had to call him "daddy"?

    I think by that point, she was experiencing the manipulative controlling behavior, b/c I mos'def agree w/ regarding the look in the poor girl's eyes, and when the tour manager said that she "had a look in her eyes", right then and there confirmed it 4 me! Kells reminds me of my ex, mentally and emotionally abusive, which can break a young girl down! Je knew how to trap, catch, and keep them, but by the time they realize "this ain't right", he already has them hooked, lined, and sinkered WITHOUT them even knowing! Find yourself telling him, "Yes! I only love u DADDY!" when this man just told you that u ain't isht and u need to confirm when u can eat!!

  • lovelygamour

    the r.kelly story is so perverted by money that you dont know what is truly real. no one had a problem with r.kelly until after they left payroll or royalties. I believe that people brought these girls to r.kelly in hopes they could all get something out of it. cause if r.kelly was just grabbing girls from the street he wouldve got caught ages ago. aaliyah family dealt with kelly long after aaliyah got with another industry guy.

    this is all foul. cause this docuseries was attempted by another team ages ago but the people involved lied so much it got scraped. so the truth of everything is inbetween. I dont know if i fully believe r.kelly cant read. thats how many lies are floating around. he signed all those bad contracts yet he still travels well. everybody in this belongs in jail. his whole life is fraud. if that man doesnt have a vault in another country i will eat my hat. lol. i believe the same of toni braxton. she has money stashed away.

    I also wont condemn other people who worked with him that didnt appear. if they didnt witness it then they cant report. if they didnt see anything suspicious then they cant report. you cant get mad at them for not doing your show cause how do they know that all the women are telling the truth. its like the bill cosby thing. you can assume but its so muddle that you dont know. i dont believe all those women i think he was slipping things to party girls and i dont believe the main accuser andrea c. i think there was wrongness on his part somewhere but just like the usher girl not all those women are telling the truth.

  • Li-Wright

    Believe me, that the parents don't have influence in their child's life anymore. Teenagers do what they want to do. Look at the 14 yr old who stole his parent's SUV went on a joy ride and killed the mother in a car accident. When a kid reaches teenage, they tune their parents out.
    Or -- the parents were being paid by R.Kelly, or getting gifts and turned a blind eye.

  • leapyearpisces

    what I kept coming back to why watching it (and the replays) is that all these pictures they were showing of him and Aaliyah, and they were dressed alike, and I am thinking her PARENTS didn't question any of this? I mean my daughter is 16 and I be damn if I see her and a 30 year old man wearing matching outfits and shat. THERE WILL BE NO QUESTIONS ASKED....ONLY BULLETS. So sorry, not sorry I am questioning ALL the parents. Including that Jovanta Cunningham (back up singer) girl, like yo momma just said yeah, sure go and be a back up singer AT 14!!! Bye!!! Holla back!!! That Hispanic girl, she was talking about how he would have her locked up in the hotel room for days while he was out and about, like YO MAMACITA just let you go and jet off with a grown azz man??!???? Like arreviderci !!! and then that dang on personal assistant, I could have slap the crap out of him, he reminiscing about R. Kelly and Aaliyah like it was some great love story, and then gonna say he failed Aailiyah well duh!!! I BLAME THE ADULTS....PERIOD....everybody mammy and pappy were COLLECTIVELY NOT SHAT. My momma and daddy gonna question my 42 year old GROWN azz right now if I taking about I am jetting off with my dang on man somewhere, so a grown azz man wouldn't have been able to get within a county of me when I was a minor. Girl, when I tell you I am BLOWN away by the lack of responsibility and accountability these people had for their kids. These CHILDREN would not been accessible to him, if the parents didn't allow it.

    Sparkle testified against him in his trial. Got a good sense of how damaged Drea was when she did that show. She didn’t speak against R. Kelly soley because of her children. She is terrified of him, and that came across in the documentary too.

    And I saw the tape - chile, something I have never been able to unsee. I didn’t need to know anything else.

  • MsVAllDay

    I wish John Legend would sit his azz down somewhere. I know R. Kelly is a predator, but predators do what they do I blame these muthafuggin parents!!! There is no way no grown azz man is going to have access to my 15 yr. old daughter like this I don't care what the price is. None of them turned his azz in b/c they knew they were complicit and would end up in jail too. Sry azz excuse for parents. It is the parents responsibility to protect their children no one else. They were all looking for a pay check!! Sold out their babies for money. Shameful and these parents need to be in jail with his azz.

Kelly concert, and she just turned the child over to him, and she was like 16 or 17. She has been living with him since. I mean what is wrong with people? and from the looks of the docuseries, R. Kelly don't pay how play either, so that can't be it (not like that would be an excuse). I am just UTTERLY disgusted by ALL the adults in the situation, and don't get me started on that EQUALLY perverted jailbird brother of his, did you see when he said that he (Carey) prefers old women, and R prefers his women young, so what is the problem? I was screaming at the tv...I was like the problem is that your brother is a PREDATOR that prefers CHILDREN, not YOUNG women.

Also, girl you know in Wake and Durham county our kids can't have but so many tardies (because they turn into absences) and they can't have but so many absences or OUR arses are getting trotted to court.

I was just think I’m goat his filthy tail is in jail because I could’ve sworn a person under the age of 18 isn’t a woman... that’s still a child. And his wife wasn’t old... wasn’t she like 19 or something when they met.

  • Tlowe89

    He’s in jail for burglary and probation violation

    I think he was paying the parents. Because nobody filed missing person reports... and he sent Spanish fish mom a $1000 check. I bet she cashed it too.

    Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, there were millions of RKellys in my neighborhood. Overall the Southside was poor and full of young girls running up on guys like him because he's cute or got a lil money or a nice car. It was so common and nobody twisted these girls' arms. I know at least 4 friends who got pregnant by guys like 7-10 years older than them. Most times they had already been sexually active by the time they met an R.Kelly.

  • freelancepimp .

    Regardless of what R Kelly may have or have not done, on a whole separate issue; John Legend does have some bitch tendencies. And I can't stand Chrissy Teigen ratchet ass. She has done some very ratchet shit and got a pass.

  • Realnigga101

    Yeah just like them preachers in Atlanta

  • freelancepimp .

    I didn't watch the documentary but did any of the women who spoke and were interviewed claim that they slept with him while there were under aged or just that they knew and saw him sleeping with someone that was under age? Because if its the latter then yes their asses should go to jail. In Texas, like in most states I imagine, if you witness harm to a minor and don't report it you can be charged also.

    My granny was 14 or 15 and my grandfather was 18. They had 12 children. But he didn't lock her in closet and beat her and didn't encourage her to have oral sex with other women.

    When you see young girls that sexually active/aware, please remember they've been taught that. These girls weren't born "fast".

    R Kelly deserves to be in jail. He's not in jail because he only preys on black girls and black women.

    The problem is not a single adult who was aware put a stop to this sh!***t.

  • Mielle Downey

    Ah from 106 just got hit wit the meto ish. There is a lot of stuff we dont know. Tupac said in his song "everywhere I go I see the same hoes." Qhen the carreer fall of then the victim mentality come up. All the same Hollywood hoes went after bill Crosby. Diet woke celebs only speak went it is convenient. Dont be surprised in john legend is hit with a case of meto . Dont call me psychic but it might be a man.

  • dontgetblocked

    John Legend is real quick to turn on other black men...Kanye and R. Kelly. Do these men have problems...yes! No matter what R. Kelly has not been convicted of any sexual charges. They did a special on Bill Cosby and now he's rotting behind bars. John did not witness anything and should have kept his big azz mouth closed. I don't like him. He sings off-key...rather he howls. And I really hate his big-headed non-black wife.

    Being confused and bewildered is apart of life. You'll be alright.

  • Reenaface

    I haven't seen this doc because not only is most of it old news that we all have heard over the years. But also because I don't want to feed this doc energy. I think this is another distraction from what's really going on in world the last time something tragic happened with a celeb it was when MJ passed and on the same day the pope annouced that we needed a new world order. For the people wondering how parents could sell their children to known molesters like R Kelly, they were also selling their children to the other now deceased molester Lou Pearlman. Also, think of the manager of the group Menedo with a young Ricky Martin who was the father of the Melendez brothers who was molesting them and that's why they murdered him. Joe Jackson, Charlie Sheen, Stephen Collins, Harvey Weinstein, Bryan Singer the list goes on and on... It's sick, but the entertainment field is sick and Black people shouldn't be so eager to push their kids into Hollywood. R Kelly is protected by the brotherhood for now that's why he hasn't been convicted.

  • justlooking

    I was being slick.

    Take care

  • Parent

    And I was being sarcastic. God bless

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I lost all respect for John Legend when he had Beyoncé sing Amazing Grace at the Oscars instead of Ledisi for the film Glory!

    He knew this appearance would yield him praise and favor, a pat on the head!

    I believe he wants to run for politics in the future, be the next black prez.

    Another FAKE, SELF-SERVING, celebrity!

  • EyeEmJai

    "...they've been taught that..." then lock up their parents or caregivers along with Kelly.

  • EyeEmJai

    I believe Kelly and Aaliyah began sleeping with each other before she was 15. I remember listening to his song, "She Got That Vibe" a couple of years ago. As I sang along, I realized, YEARS later, Aaliyah's name is mentioned in the lyrics, "Aaliyah's got it..." Wait, what? What does she have and how do you know she has It? That song was released in 1991-1992. She was about 12 or 13.

    Ricky Martin is 47-years-old and very much alive. He is openly gay with three young children.

  • Ariel

    But what did Russell Simmons have to say tho? LOL

  • Fodderwing

    K. So. As a vapid consumer of all things informative...there were several managers of the boy group “The Menudos”, which did introduce Ricky Martin to the world at large ...Edgardo Diaz is still alive...and there are whispers of his involvement in child sex abuse/trafficking

    And Jose Menedez...who was known as Jose Melendez. Who was a record producer, who absolutely did work with RM. And is dead. By the hands of his sons.

    Your not wrong. U just gotta get all ur facts in order, perfectly, before your presentation.

  • Fodderwing

    Blame her parents!

    Sooo. I’m super old. I was the same age as Aaliyah when she came out. And it was *tea* before tea was tea..that she had married RSmelly. So when she dropped the video for “Are You That Somebody” ...and had GINUWINE’s name tatted on her arm...passed around..

  • violet_skyz

    B##$@ please, we got her point. She had minimal errors but you did not have to point it out its not that serious.

  • Reenaface

    Thanks for the correction...

  • Reenaface

    Sandra, I don't think I inferred in my post that Ricky Martin was dead, I'm very aware that he's very much alive, you mentioning him being openly gay has nothing to do with the point I was making trying to make. I stated that his manager( Menudos) Jose Melendez was the father of the Melendez brothers and a known molester and that's why they killed him.

  • Reenaface

    Thank you.

  • Parent

    Its Menendez dear.

    If anyone is interested, I'm going to leave this here. Book written by one of R Kelly's victims.

    Sorry to hear that , it's time to address a number of old issues we've been sweeping under the carpet for generations .

  • TwitterFingerz

    This is how fake John Legend is. He adores Puff Daddy, but Puff got Misa pregnant at 16 while he was a whole damn 24yrs old. Was that okay John?

  • AllIN19

    Read it last month speechless then and watching this series.

  • Parent

    Exactly how I felt.

  • Parent

    Yes. The last 2 episodes of the series really pulled at my heart strings. Was so happy Dominique left with her mom in LA. Praying for Joycelin, Azria and their parents. Watching the girls parents hunt for their daughter really messed me up being a mom myself. I really can't get over this. My heart is so heavy for those beautiful girls and their beautiful parents.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone
