R Kelly

R. Kelly turned himself in to Chicago on Friday night. The 52-year-old R&B singer/songwriter is charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal abuse after decades of allegations of sexual misconduct with underage girls and adult women.

R Kelly

Cook County officials issued a no-bail arrest warrant on Friday. News footage shows the singer leaving his recording studio around 7:30 p.m. ET, as a swarm of reporters shout questions at him.

He got into a black van which transported him to the 1st District police headquarters. There he was taken into custody by police.

A bond hearing is set for Saturday afternoon, CBS Chicago reports.

A judge signed the no-bail warrant for Kelly's arrest at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

The indictment indicated there are four female victims. Three victims are females under the age of 17.

The victims are identified by their initials in the indictment.

  • H.W. (13-16 years of age), victim of four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse between May 26, 1998, and May 25, 1999;
  • J.P. (13-16 years of age), victim of three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse between May 1, 2009, and Jan. 31, 2010;
  • R.L. (13-16 years of age), victim of two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse between Sept. 26, 1998, and Sept. 25, 2001;
  • L.C. (no age given), victim of one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse on Feb. 18, 2003
  •  
    In the case of the victim whose age is not given, Kelly is accused of sexual contact by use of force or the threat of force.

    After Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx announced the charges on Friday, Kelly's defense attorney Steve Greenberg said Kelly was a "sacrificial lamb, there is no merit to this."

    Greenberg said he expected Kelly to appear in court and post bond on Saturday. He said Kelly will ultimately be acquitted "because he didn't do anything."

    When a reporter asked Greenberg if he thought Kelly's accusers were lying, he replied, "Yes."

    "All of them?" the reporter asked.

    "I think all the women are lying, yes," Greenberg said.

    The news comes a month after Kelly was accused of sexual misconduct by several adult women in the Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly. The women were all consenting adults at the time the abuse was alleged to have occurred.

    Last week, Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti turned over a VHS videotape that shows the singer allegedly performing sex acts with an underage girl.

    Avenatti, who is representing women accusing Kelly of sexual abuse, tweeted "it's over" shortly after the charges were announced Friday. Avenatti held a news conference to discuss allegations against Kelly, saying he believes Kelly "will rightfully die in a prison" and "should never walk free a day in his life."

    "After 25 years of serial sexual abuse and assault of underage girls, the day of reckoning for R Kelly has arrived," Avenatti tweeted on Friday.

    Kelly was acquitted of 13 counts of child pornography related to a video that allegedly showed him having sex with a 14-year-old girl in 2008.

      I bet he had paid them off to, like Bill had paid that white woman off and after her money dried up, she popped up wanting him jailed.

    • Seldomseen

      Kelz it’s a wrap!

    • TheWildChild

      Yeah, but the difference between he and Pill Cosby ??? Bill depositions from the past is what burned his azz and the women involved were grown AF.

    • Li-Wright

      @Chicagowise, I saw your messg on the other thread, but I had to think about it. Some of these young teenage girls think it's a badge of honor to have sex with a celebrity. It's bragging rights. You may have been repulsed by RK, but what he said to you he said to another girl and she was willing. Because it's some kind of bragging rights. And some of these teens are highly sexualized.
      IMO he took advantage of the weak-minded, celebrity loving teen. He just had to find the right ones.

      It’s a lot of white sexual predators in Hollywood it’s a ring of them since this seems to be the year for this I hope it comes out about them as well! And how children are being kidnapped from other countries for the purposes of having sex with those wealthy white folks then killed and never found. Anyway rkelly should have known this time would come but his ego wouldn’t allow him to face that fact

    • Mielle Downey

      This is very sad. The girls if minors were victims of thier own gulible infantile minds.This is why we need to watch and pray and teach our kids to watch and pray. Please if you dont believe in God I don't have time for your persecution but I will keep you in my prayers. Hollywood and celebrity is idol worship and is not sanctioned by God because he wants you to be humble. These celebrities are just like you and me and there is no need to hang on thier every word and worship them.

    • Rhyme and Reason

      Kelly built this case decades ago, and should go to prison, and he certainly will!

      The judge isn't throwing out anything that will interfere with a quilty verdict.

      But, watch out guys, just like when Cosby was taken down, an avalanche of predators have also fallen!

      But, this Avenatti guy is over-the-top for his own self-promotion, like now, we can all sleep at night!

      I just don't like this kind of justice, it inadvertently malign Black men, the media attention, looping these arrests, while ignoring everything else nefarious!

    • Li-Wright

      It's like those ISIS girls. They were weak-minded and fantasized about marrying a terrorist, now they want to come home. Nope, aint happening :)

    • TheWildChild

      I wonder can other victims sue the estates of deceased celebs? I recall friend of mine running away with Rick James & his band back in the day. She was gone a month and was 15yrs. old. I'm sure others will soon be exposed for something that was acceptable by the culture during an era where a consensual-16yr olds was the norm.

    • GuestSTAR

      True and what makes Cosby's situation so focked, that deposition was suppose to stay sealed.

    • Dun Dilly

      Chicago Po having a helluva week. The R is about to pay the piper.

    • red

      They need to keep all underage girls out of the court room based on his hook up with the last girl during the trial.

      Don't cry now.

      Your azz should have gotten some help when you had a chance but you kept fugging with karma and now she's fugging back.

      Now R will be someone's prison bach.

      Enjoy!!

    • GAPeach

      Well, hopefully he let the harem in his home out so that they can at least eat, and not have to pee in buckets until they give him bail.

    • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

      No matter how 'fast' these girls are they are MINORS and can not give consent.

      All of these men who are hanging around certain places like schools know that these girls are underage regardless of whatever age they give.

    • Nicol B

      nah, he needs to be...
      "in jaaaaiiiiiilllll,
      in jail without the bail,

      in jail because he failed!
      WHOMP!"
      sorry, i digress, that was an old Fat Boys lyric from Krush Groove, but it somehow fits.
      but, yeah, they do need to stay in school.

    • Nicol B

      like you said, he's a Black MAN who perpetrated crimes against Black girls. they need a voice. his will be in court.

      i have a 21 year old son, so i am definitely one to advocate for the rights and fair treatment of Black men. a lot of what you say is true.

    • lovelygamour

      i dont like this court of public opinion. i am not following this case until all the hard evidence is out. and i am not a fan. i just dont like all the witch-hunting. like the metoo ceo had to step down because a woman said in a closed facebook group that her son kissed her and brush himself on her during a massage. the son says he has text massages saying otherwise. I want to her allegations but I dont think we should be hanging people for whispers. I want timely evidence. I would be pissed if someone tried to drag a family member into court for something that happened 3-20 years ago.

    • lovelygamour

      plus he said it in an almost joking way. I still think the only reason why he made that statement was because it was supposed to stay sealed. I dont like that someone can come with no real evidence and put another person in jail.

    • BingBangBoom

      Chile where did R Kelly get last minute hair from? Dude has gone bald years ago... He came prepared for the national attention. He made a huge comeback from his last trial.. Also

      I know we're not the "only " folks that's been cutting up? Justice needs to be equivocal across the board. I swear the rules of this game in life has been and will never be applicable to "them."

      In 2017, Illinois eliminated their statute of limitations for sex crimes against children. So long as the victim is under 18 years of age at the time of the offense, no SofL shall apply.

      That isn't retroactive. It only applies to current cases and cases where the previous statute of limitations hasn't expired. The previous law stated that the crime must be reported and tried within 20 years of the victim's 18th birthday. So, the previous statute of limitations still applies to some cases.

    • Elevated Soul

      Finally.... A predatory pedophile menace to Black girls for almost 30 years is finally off these streets and is in jail without the bail.

    • the guest

      Perfectly stated. He has a dark fetish that has caught up with him, He was an abused child who grew up to be a predator. Instead of getting him help, authority figures instead exploited his talents for gain.

      Any company that signed him to a contract knowing of his dark fetish of abusing minors should have mandated he get help. Instead they profited off of his lyrics that were blatantly promoting pedophilia.

      R Kelly is a pedophile and he is an abuser of women and his behaviors are not just salacious gossip, his behaviors are illegal.

Grown women were throwing him the panties everywhere he went... but that still wasn't enough. He had to go for 14 and 15 year old girls, and that's going to be his downfall. Just stupid. Even if you have a this [twisted] fantasy in your head about young girls, you don't have to act it out in real life. But he did, and his sick obsession/fetish is probably going to cause him to lose everything.

They are using there thug swag and fucboi girly swag to lure these girls in. Are they not being a menace to the black community? Why is the single mothers in the black community is above 60%? Who are impregnating these girls and leaving them to be single mothers? You rejoice over R.

    • tia

      Absolutely agreed. The "powers that be" knew what time it was with Robert. He is not new to this; decades long behavior. In fact, going back listening to his music seems like he been crying out and flat out telling us through the music. He's a sick individual. Yet, he has to be held accountable. The industry has definitely used him and let him make all these years. But right now, his time is up. I don't know who he pissed off, but they going for the jugular. I say, "pissed off " because this stuff been going on. But he may not have rubbed anybody the wrong way? Vengeance is the Lord's or karma for some folks that's not religious. Might not come on time, but karma always comes back. Including him, praying for all involved.

      Hopefully those women and girls will go home, get some professional therapy to become "unhypnotized" and hopefully go on to be productive and respectable young ladies from here on. I'm wishing those ladies and girls all the best because when you're "trapped in his closet" it appears you stay trapped. Hopefully they can now be freed.

    • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

      I agree with everything you said except for the part about white predators being dealt with first I think the general consensus is white predators need to be dealt with the SAME the same long prison sentence in Hell holes and not slaps on the wrist and community service cuz you white. Hell I just read an update on Jeff foggle the subway guy a man that was in prison with him just got out and said Jeff living the life the prison he in has a tennis court and all kinds of activities that the wealthy play he is also in the taking up culinary arts the media is not stalking him like they are Bill Cosby they were flying drones over the prison while he was out walking to make sure he still miserable and not have too much fun they even released that he has no visitors. But we all know black ppl are treated differently in the justice system than whites

    • NewNew

      I don't know why either.

    • The Art

      I guess you missed Sandusky, Dr. Luke, Larry Nasser, Harvey Weinstein, and countless other white sexual predators who’ve been brought down. When white accusers organize, present credible evidence, and relentlessly pursue justice, like these black ones, then the white offenders will be taken down too. The problem is most white offenders don’t video tape their exploits or write checks for criminal activity from their personal checking accounts. But, the real issue here is not race. It’s the fact that there are so many deviant predators among us from all walks of life. The Catholic Church is about to brought down.

I'll never be so naive that I say racism doesn't exist or that it isn't a problem, but THIS is not the place to play the race card. If the race card is always played, then it isn't believed (when everything is a big deal, nothing is). Play it where it belongs, which in almost every story BUT this one.

      The current women are of legal age and claim to willingly be with him. So there’s no crime in those cases.

      It should not matter how deep we have to dig. Just because the crime happened years ago doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be held responsible.

      Different times. Women are more empowered now and not afraid to speak their truth. He’s going to prison.

    • Junkanoo

      Same for Hollywood they turned a blind eye to the casting couch for over 80 years. NBC , CBS ,FOX ,PBS
      all knew what was going on with Matt Lauer , Lee Moonves and others only because the me too movement gained momentum there finally firing people and locking folks up the system its self is also guilty of not addressing this issue decades ago.

      so many PETITE 18 yr olds out here...the truth is, he just doesnt want grown women. they are too smart and want too much money! that goes for ALL these men dating these young girls. its always about $$$.
      he wants those young, dumb, starstruck schoolgirls he can manipulate, control, and keep locked in rooms, eating scraps, pissing in buckets like worthless mutts. (and, yes, we all know he took on a few grown fans too, but, as you can see, he didnt chase them when they finally had sense enough to leave either. he never wanted them.)

    • Oretta Grace Smith

      That's because His Mind Is on that level, Never Matured. And It Is So Many others in Our Black Community!!!

      My statement remains, they do need to be held for what the did, no question. But there are other things in the background going on, under the masses nose, that are not being focused on. So again there is an agenda .

      WEll over in China a scientist has made twin girls immune to HIV by altering their DNA but it didn’t stop there since scientists have been able to see these girls they believe he also altered their brain making them highly intelligent the Chinese government claim they didn’t know but yet his research was government funded also in China they are collecting DNA from Muslim ppl and using it somehow to track them when they collected it they told them they were doing it as a free health screening. Putin is trying to start a fight with the US prolly cuz Teump has yet to fulfill his promises and Kim jung is suspected of having someone daughter kidnapped ????? It’s a lot going on

    • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

      Following Kelly's arrest, his attorney Steve Greenberg addressed reporters outside the station.
      He said that several of the charges are 'double jeopardy' because they 'involve the same girl' that Kelly was acquitted of producing child pornography with in 2008

    • Sushi

      I heard about the immunity to HIV clones, they made, but bigger than that, which I'm sure you know, there has always been a cure, how do you make a disease in a laboratory without a cure. yeah it's more than meets the eye when it comes to the government, no matter what party is in office.

    • WinterIsComing

      Damn. But, if it wasn’t proven back then that it was the actual girl on tape bc the parents lied and the girl didn’t take the stand...

    • WhoKnew

      Right. I give zero phucs about this perv. He needs to be locked up and never see the outside of a prison again for the rest of his life.

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      Yep, and not only do they turn a blind eye to it, a lot of them participate in threatening the witness or paying people off to lie or stay silent. The only reason people like him finally get held responsible, is because the very same people who helped cover it up, finally try to do the right thing and come forward with the truth. And that's rare because most of the time, they remain silent or keep the cover up going. They don't want folks to know that they played a part in doing a victim just as dirty as the original abuser. They continue to lie and cover up to not only save the abusers àss but to also save their own.

    • NewNew

      It's been open season on women and children since forever. It's all wrong and needs to be stopped. But how does one eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

      It drives me crazy when black folks want to reference what white folks do/get away with when our own ? stinks to high heaven.
      "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own?" We must deal with our own people, clean up our own houses. A rapist is a rapist is a dirty rapist, period.

      I swear this ish has me on fire

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      Very true. It a slow death for the victim and usually society makes it 100 times worse with their continued support for these abusers and their continued judgement and criticizing of the victim. Just sickening all the way around.

    • NewNew

      Exactly. And while everyone who was complicit is wrong as hell I commend those who finally stepped forward to put an end to the ridiculousness. They should still get what's coming to them but it's better to step forward eventually than not at all. There is redemption in doing the right thing.

    • Yup, I said it

      He's a damage and broken individual who takes advantage of other damaged and broken indivuduals, A.K.A predator. His goose is cooked because the records company's won't protect him anymore. Since he's been putting out songs like backyard party the records company's are like, prison can have him.

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      That's true some of the time but not always. I personally know victims of sex?al abuse who never had any desire to touch a child because they know how damaging it was to them as kids. I think people who have never received help, repeat that vicious cycle.

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      I agree. Even though them coming forward with the truth, is long overdue, I'm glad they mustard up the courage to finally speak up.

    • NewNew

      Girl it's a trigger for me too. And the folks, especially the WOMEN, doing gymnastics to deflect the blame make me wanna vomit. This man has been doing this ish for 30+ years but it's everyone's fault but his own? I just can't with people. Malcolm X was right, black women are the most disrespected and unprotected people out there, and some of us refuse to respect and protect each other. It's a Got Dam? shame.

    • Evillene

      Most do not. Being the victim of a pedophile doesn't make you a pedophile. But I agree that it can be learned behavior, that's why all pedophiles need to be...dealt with severely. It's a pestilence. Once, R. Kelly was an innocent child victim, but now he is a depraved, guilty predator. The cycle of abuse needs to be destroyed.

    • NewNew

      Jesus

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      Truth! I've noticed how black victims are always made out to be liars and manipulators by our very own people first. If you can convince everyone that a person is a liar, then your job is done. It doesn't matter how much they've spoken the truth from the beginning, they'll always be ignored. I've seen that sort of behavior in the black community since as far back as I can remember.

      His lawyer is talking about him being the "sacrificial lamb" but the first "sacrificial lamb" was his victim because where were these girls families? And why did some families feel comfortable being paid off to lie, regardless of the damage done by this abuser?

    • NewNew

      ??????

    • Elevated Soul

      Great post and I do agree!

      I definitely get what you are saying. I do agree that White criminals are treated differently and this is something Blacks who decide to commit criminal acts need to think about,before they go down the wrong path.

      My point was mainly about Black people that seem to want justice for Black female victims of R. Kelly, to be deferred because they were obsessed with how or if White criminals,would be punished for said crimes.

    • NewNew

      You brought a tear to my eye. Thank you. The ignorance out here is mind boggling.

      Dear Mr Kelly,

      I know you've been through a lot. We all have... we're only human/flesh and blood we're made (TheHumanLeague). But, maybe this is a way to free yourself. Maybe this is what you needed to flip the script on fake friends and industry snakes. And m sorry what was done to you, caused YOU to do to others.
      You are still Gods child. This is a good look my friend.
      I'm simply saying this because you touched my ? when you said...
      ??"Heaven I need a hug...is there anybody out there willing to embrace a thug. I'm feeling like a change of heart...and all I REALLY NEED is a SIGN or a WORD from God...So shower down on me, wet me with your live I need you to take me...and lift me up"??.

      Here is your sign Mr. Kelly...God will help you. Maybe now he can use you for what you've been trying to reach out about.

      I have and will always love your music sir.

      Help is on the way??????

    • Elevated Soul

      You can't end anything for me because you're simply not relevant to me.

      There is no rejoicing in my comment but for simple minded nyggahs,you would deem it to be, because I don't cape for R. Kelly. I cape for Black girls/ and weak minded women victims of pedophiles/predators like R. Kelly. Clearly you cape for the predator.

      You're just another dumb nyggah with hella hate for Black girls/women because you won't hold a Black male accountable for anything because you can never see a Black girl/woman as a victim....Notice I said "Black male".Black MEN hold Black males like you and R.Kelly accountable and they're not the issue....It's dumb foul "mother hating nyggahs like you who are the problem in Black Communities".

    • NewNew

      He's been "joking" about his predatory ways for decades. Remember Spanish Fly? A rapist is a rapist is a dirty rapist. Bill is exactly where he should be.
      https://youtu.be/Nx6KAd_Su3I

    • WhoKnew

      Right. Last night I read that they haven't even got to the menses yet that he has exposed to his perv and predatory sexual sickness. In other words, they haven't talked about the boys and the menses this monsta has exploited for his own sick gratifications. I truly believe that this time he will be locked up for 30 or more years.

    • WhoKnew

      I missed that story. What happened?

    • Robert lee Bennett OG

      I think r kelly like young girls but tries to keep it legal some prolly lied to him like they do and now we are at this point

    • Robert lee Bennett OG

      I think that’s just a sound bite he wants to put out.. the prosecutor has crossed Ts and dotted is

    • Mr.LeBrickJames

      Its worse when the parents condone it. I remember growing up, there was a girl who was easily the finest chick on the block, but she never messed with us young dudes. Only grown men with money need apply. I remember her being 17 and had a man in a Mercedes who would come pick her up twice a week for a couple of hours. And he looked to be at least 35, maybe 40.
      She lived with her mom... mom knew what was going on, and seemed to be fine with it.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      Remember when his bm & 1st son's house burned down?

    • WhoKnew

      I'll bet one of the defenses his lawyers will use is that he can't read and he's retarded and he didn't know better. GTFOH. You don't need to know how to read if a girl tells you she's 12, 13 or 14 years old and you take her innocent virginity from her anyway because you never pled to being deaf.

      We said it before but this time I believe justice will prevail and it's a certain wrap for him because this "wrap" he will not be able to dodge, defeat or deflect. In other words, he is done, done and done.

    • Elevated Soul

      He once married a 15 year old and trolled elementary and Jr. high schools in Chicago,so clearly he has a problem....

      situation that he is dealing with is not about who lied to him or not. This situation is about he criminal activities and no one is to blame for that except him.

    • WhoKnew

      Dude was probably giving the girl enough money to help her help her single mom with rent, food and clothing for her. Damned shame.

    • NewNew

      When the roots are poisoned the fruit will be too. That "mother" was probably taught the same thing. Generational curse.

    • Anyway

      Thank you! I'm so sick of black people deflecting when it comes to this predator. Maybe if we stop deflecting and set the bar higher, our communities won't be in the shambles they're in!

    • NewNew

      ???????

    • angelpat2812

      Um, forgive me...But I'm so burnt out about "Jussie Smollett" that I could care less about what's going on with R.Kelly. I pray these women get justice if this is true. Other than that, I won't be keeping up with it! You guys can have it. Seriously!

    • PlayerP

      Not long ago it was acceptable for an older man to court a young girl. It was the norm.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      his day will come. you can't play favorites with your kids either.

    • Alextra Ballard

      that "she lied to me about her age is no dam defense".. if you're a pedophile like kellz it makes know difference

    • WhoKnew

      I think that's why all the Kartrashian and Jenner hoes are hoes cuz they learned it from their momma. It seems she taught them not to respect their bodies but to respect the art of making money with their bodies instead. That is not how you raise a girl into a decent woman.

    • NewNew

      And the new brown generation is getting the same message.

    • WhoKnew

      Yes, they are. It is quite sad.

    • Mr.LeBrickJames

      Come through with the common sense!

    • Kimocha

      Well, I hope they piss on him in prison and make him call them Daddy!

    • Mr.LeBrickJames

      Yup. They're going to nail him just like they nailed Cosby. But of course you'll see ninjas on here talking 'bout how the white man is only targeting black males... "what about Harvey Weinstein" blah blah blah.?

    • WhoKnew

      Right. Nobody forced Cosby to drug and have sex with incapacitated women. Nobody forced Kelly to have sex with underaged girls and then further defile them by urinating on them. And because they just both happened to be black don't matter to me. They committed crimes and should be locked up for those crimes. And, you would think Kelly's dumb ass would have a learned a lesson from Cosby being locked up on charges that were over 10 years old but he didn't learn from it. He kept right on doing his dirt because, like Cosby, he thought he was above the law and had beat those same charges before. Welp, when they throw away the key he better hope it don't fall in front of me because I'm going to give it that extra kick into the sewer.

      It seems like even he can sense and feel that this time it's different from before. I think the authorities have all their ducks in a row this time, and they're going to get that long-overdue conviction people have been waiting for.

    • Robert lee Bennett OG

      I notice that young girl routinely lie about there age if they say 17/18 most likely they are 14/15 don’t you think it should be repercussions for them deceiving a man into a criminal offense ?

    • WhoKnew

      It might have been different but maybe not because it is reported that their mom cheated on their repeatedly with various men.

    • WhoKnew

      Oh, wow. I had forgotten about that. And he paid off how many people to get out of that charge?

    • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

      Did you forget that Hung Kong Koonery niggas like myself move out the black community and into Cobb County or Alpharetta with people like Tom And Helen Willis? The only time it's worth going in the hood is to help my client Mr. White Folks assets some tax lien property he just purchased or to grab a couple of whole bean pies from Muhammad 13x.

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      Yes doing that to spite the mother. He keep saying his son did something to him because the mother filled his son head with a bunch of lies. I could see if his son lied on him, stole from him, blatantly disrespected him, and did dirt to him and then played the victim. Then I would understand him cutting him completely off but home of that happened, so it's obvious he's just bitter because of the mother.

    • Robert lee Bennett OG

      I know a friend who did that and the chick started threatening to start breaking things if he didn’t go ahead with the deed

    • dontgetblocked

      Sounds like a witch hunt after the documentary. Weird since Michael Avanetti got involved. He's facing felony charges for beating his wife. We're going back 20 years to try to convict a black man. Yet, all those recent cases of white celebrities are ignored. SEE what the MAN is doing or are you BLIND! Black men have become the face of sexual abuse when white men are the biggest offenders. But we as black sheep fall in step and allow them to only punish us. Sad!

    • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

      He's R Kelly though. He has enough money to find out whatever he want, about these girls before sleeping with them. Some men just like feeling in control of people and that's harder to do as the person gets older. That's why he has a problem with messing with grown women. Girls are easier to control with money, manipulation and lies.

    • FlorenceJohnston
