R. Kelly is back behind bars. The 52-year-old Grammy winner was arrested Thursday night in Chicago on 13 federal charges, including sex trafficking, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.

The disgraced R&B singer was taken into custody by New York police officials and Homeland Security Investigators about 7 p.m. local time and is being held without bond, WENN.com reports.

The latest arrest is the 2nd time Kelly was detained on sex crime charges this year. He was arrested in February on 10 charges involving female four victims, three of whom were minors at the time of the alleged crimes.

He pleaded not guilty to those charges and was released on bail.

On May 30, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx added 11 more charges stemming from accusations of sexually abusing women when they were teenagers.

Kelly's lawyers are currently seeking the dismissal of a civil suit filed by one of his sex abuse accusers.

The alleged victim claims she entered into a year-long sexual relationship with Kelly in the late 1990s after meeting at a restaurant while celebrating her 16th birthday.

She recently won a default judgment after Kelly failed to respond by the deadline. But a Chicago judge reversed the judgment.

Kelly's lawyers argued the woman, only identified as H.W. in her lawsuit, had until 2002 to sue, but she waited too long. The woman is seeking more than $50,000 in compensation.

Kelly was acquitted of similar crimes in 2008 when a jury cleared him of child sex charges related to a video obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times that had been readily available on the Internet.

Kelly's legal troubles escalated after Lifetime Television aired a documentary "Surviving R. Kelly," which featured alleged victims detailing abuse they allegedly suffered at the hands of the troubled singer.

    I saw the arrest go down on my way home from work! It was a mess..he was very distraught! Trump Tower is on serious lockdown so they had to wait until he came out to get him. Probably been watching his moves/schedule for awhile.

  • Roxii Spades

    The saga continues....

  • Gloria

    They are. There’s always stories about them. Can’t hide it with social media today. More pedophiles, regardless of how rich, famous, or religious they are, are getting exposed.

  • Mints

    The Peehive wont be able to get him out of this one. They really want to make an example out of him

  • http://welfareinfo.org angrysolo

    Let’s hope the Feds don’t drop the ball cuz Chi-town let a WHOLE video slip through their fangas and this mane went on to believe he was invincible

  • Gloria

    What a time to be alive.
    In just one week, multiple billionaire pedophiles have been arrested. And now R.Kelly has been charged with even more felonies. I need this trend to continue.

  • WhoKnew

    Still does believe he can fly.

  • WhoKnew

    Not the Peehive? I think you're right though. I don't think he's coming out this time.

  • Gloria

    So? Lol. Epstein is going to have a shorter sentence because he took a pea deal and is snitching on his pedo friends. R. Kelly is not taking a plea deal and is being charged with more felonies than Epstein. Two different cases so it’s no surprise that R. Kelly will get more time.

  • WhoKnew

    You did for real? Details.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • Ghost

    I work in a building right across the street from Trump Tower. Came out and was walking to get something to eat that when I saw RKelly walking his dog...somebody yelled hey Kelly he turned around smiling thinking it was a fan a swarms if police came out of nowhere! Some were waiting in a high end restaurant called Benny’s across the street..once he found out what was really going on he hung his head and shook it. A police took the dog and they threw him in the car. Folks were just standing there with their mouths open

  • WhoKnew

    Wow. Thanks for the update.

    I'll bet that was a sight to see. I wonder when the videos of his arrest will hit the net. I think it's finally over for him and I would be extremely shocked and very disappointed if he makes bail again. We're talking what decades of crimes he's committed?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Do you think Chris Tucker went on the Lolita Express that Epstein provided with the intent of having sexual relations with young girls and boys? I will never watch another one of his movies if this is even remotely true.

  • Seldomseen

    Yeah it is deteriorating as I font,

    kelly got more charges than epstein. hmmm. interesting.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    IDGAF about no grown ass men getting not shit if they left with a known stripper and ended up in a hotel room with her. I just dont. You was down to fukk anyways sir sounds like to me. It is what it is.

  • Dreadboi

    You can thank your POTUS and his admin for this crackdown on these pedos.. Might not want to but these arrest and crackdowns wasn't taken place under obama..Kelly is pnuts compared to epstein arrest..

  • Gloria

    I hope not ? but I wouldn’t put it past anyone sadly. When I found out about Bill Cosby, I was just done. Shocked the hell out of me but totally woke me up that literally anyone, even a funny and friendly fatherly figure, could be a predator.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Aye..what nicki minaj say..he is Da don Done!

  • Ghost

    I doubt if he makes bail this time. It was waaay to many letterman out there! CPD, NYPD, Homeland Security and FBI! He’s done!

  • Shenanigans1

    Whoa now they’re implicating Chris?

  • Shenanigans1

    Wow. He seems like such a drama king.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Cosby felt he was invincible too, and eventually we see how that worked out for him. RKelly's time is about up. I think they're going to make sure they nail him this time. He'll probably be in his mid-60's by the time he gets out of prison. Such a waste of talent.

  • hottlanta

    He did get with her to get robbed he went with her to get laid n she drugged him without him knowing it. So l guess if he did it to her she deserves it bcas of her lifestyle.

  • Shenanigans1

    From the bottom of my heart I hope he rots in prison. Disgusting Asshole.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well deserved. Justice takes a long time sometimes, but it looks like it's is finally catching up with him.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I wish they would just go ahead and lock him up so the media can stop using him as a distraction. We get it. We knew this 15/20 years ago. Who's next?

  • SatanIsABlackMan

    Demonic evil man! Notice how most if not all of his victims are black women and girls. Black Men HATE Black women! How black women Cape so hard for these evil ass men is disturbing.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    RK could have been super wealthy and living out his life in comfort. But instead he's probably going to end up broke and serving a good number of years in prison. Sad. This is what happens when you let you make decisions based on your crotch instead of your brain. I don't feel sorry for him, but his downfall is still kinda sad to me. Just a waste of the amazing talent this man had.

  • The Chosen One

    Whew, you said a mouthful and preached the truth.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He's already broke. He will likely die in prison. They are about to make an example.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think he's already ruined financially. He had trouble even coming up with $100,000 for bail a couple months ago. For as much money he's made over the years that shouldn't be. With his talent, and all the hit songs he's written he should easily be worth at least $50 million or more.

  • The Chosen One

    I hope it isn't true. Mic Jagger and some others have been called out, too.

  • The Chosen One

    If Michael Jackson was still alive, they would be on his azz as well.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm trying to figure out how being a simp/trick turned into a potential life sentence. Because you're right, if there was a rapper that came out and said he would drug and r.pe or rob prostitutes that he brought back to his hotel, the conversation would be different.

    And Idk why we are acting like every time a man leaves with a stripper he or she is leaving with the expectation of him paying her. Those heauxs get f.cked for free on the regular.

  • The Chosen One

    LMFAO. Better a cargo hold than an airplane wheel well. You saw where a person fell from one, that in flight, last week.

  • hottlanta

    Acosta just resigned. Go nancy go.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    What makes it so sad is that the man's talent is undeniable. If I had his songwriting abilities I'd be a rich man right now. I'd just be moving in silence, staying out of trouble and watching my monthly royalty checks come in. This man had it made, and messed up real bad. smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Agreed. He is beyond talented. While I don't think his personal traumas excuse his behaviors, I think it's unfortunate that it is being evaluated the same way it would be if he were white.

    But, ultimately he had the resources to get help. Very sad situation.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    They need to make an example outta Epstein and his wealthy friends they steady cutting them deals when they were transporting kids through airspace to an island I’m sorry R kelly deserves what he gets but so does those men the fact that they even considering cutting a deal with Epstein and the possibility of him only doing 5years is beyond me

  • KcoolMuziq
  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    I got a question I noticed under almost every r kelly post you post a message similar to this is there a reason why? Is this directed towards someone in the comments or is this a general statement I’m just curious

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Oh well!
    I was ALWAYS taught to:
    NEVER leave my drink unattended
    NOT accept drinks sent to me from strangers
    Dont smoke weed that is prerolled
    NEVER go back to a house or hotel with ANYONE I dont know
    Dont get into a car with strangers

  • WhoKnew

    You all WILL make it out okay. It's easier said than done to have faith without seeing the works of faith.

    Lord, we ask you to protect the people in the path of this storm. Keep them from any and all hurt, harm and danger. Calm the winds, the raging waters and the storms and protect their lives, homes and dwelling places. Be a comfort to them and erase their fears. We thank you holy trinity for your grace, mercy and all that you do. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit we ask these things in your name. Amen.

  • Tee Tee

    This is a distraction from something more sinister that is going on.
    I say use this same energy on the parents who took their daughters to Kelly and dropped them off in exchange for cash and gifts because that is in fact Sex Trafficking.
    If I can be arrested for sex trafficking simply for dropping my friend off to sell p*ssy at a hotel (I've never did that lol) then why are the courts not applying this type of pressure on the parents?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He should have never been given that position in the first place. Trump's people knew about this dirt in his past but still nominated him... and now it blew up in their face. smh. Just shows how incompetent they are.

  • Tee Tee

    I don't believe for a second he is broke. If he were broke none of these women would be coming forward. I think the women are broke being that he's been paying some of them monthly for years and now that they have broken the confidentiality agreement by telling their stories he no longer has to pay and they're mad (just my opinion).

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Who hurt you?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile...

  • MsSapphire9800

    Please don't take this as defending R Kelly...but it seems funny his arrest came on the heels of Epstein. Now the distraction is on R Kelly and Epstein will slip through the system quietly and will serve about 18 months in Fed. Where did they get the child pornography..are they talking about that old tape...because when they search his home and studio they found nothing.

  • Tee Tee

    I hope my black husband of 17 years doesn't hate me or my black sons because if they do they are some evil muthaf*ckas for pretending all these years that I'm the best thing in their lives ijs?

  • Carrington

    ... but.... if he had a confidentiality agreement (which is no longer in affect during trial). What, exactly would be the REASON he's paying them? You don't think he's paying them to keep quiet about having sex with them as GROWN a$$ed women, do you?
    So, even if they're no longer getting paid and they're mad - if he was paying them to be quiet because he was MOLESTING them... who really is the issue here?

    Chris Tucker was on the Lolita Express with Bill Clinton for his "African Charity Tour" along with Epstein, Kevin Spacey and one other individual on a "humanitarian" mission to Africa. The trip was a week-long tour of Africa in September 2002. The trip reportedly covered policies dealing with AIDS prevention. Children from Africa have been trafficked for a long time. I'm not surprised by them "visiting there." Chris Tucker has the Chris Tucker Foundation which is non-profit dealing with youth and families locally, nationally, and internationally. Rumor has it that Tucker faces a $14 million tax debt as well.

    Many wealthy people form foundations and not all for good reasons. Tucker, Clinton, Lebron, Leonardo Di Caprio, many celebrities have a foundation. Jackie Chan (who acted with Tucker) also has a foundation. He visited Myanmar to "combat child trafficking." Other "supporters" of these charities include Harvey Weinstein, John Legend (John and his wife Chrissy are stone cold freaks...that's all I'm going to say) Donna Karan, Elton John, and more.

    As I wrote a couple of days ago don't think that black folks are exempt from this mess. PLEASE....! However, I am NOT trying to implicate Tucker but just keep an "open mind." By the way, the Chris Tucker trip is in the log flight of the Lolita Express.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Normally I wouldn’t get my hopes up when it come to Kellz. However knowing that the Feds have a 90 to 95 conviction rate,I am hoping this time Robert is finally dunT.

  • Tee Tee

    The issue I have with this is majority of the "victims" were adult women two of them had a husband and a child/children. They have been proven to be liars by their own spouses and children who have come forward denouncing that their wives and mothers were held captive.
    Once Kelly got tired of them he made them go home. Now their victims.
    Jarhonda camped outside of the first trial and admitted she lied about her age. The age of consent in most states is 17. She told him she was 18 only after he slept with her she told him the truth (it was too late the deed had been done).
    She was getting a monthly check even after she got married and starting having kids. Her husband told her to stop taking the money. She wanted the R&B d*ck and she got it.
    The other women have no proof they were even associated with Kelly other than backstage fan photos (if you watch the documentary).
    Jocyelyn was of age to consent her parents want money. The other young women have stated over and over that they are not being held against their will among other things.
    I say lock up the parents of the underage girls, lock up Drea Kelly for recruiting young girls, lock up the entir staff for turning a blind eye.
    He had help and the women coming forward I don't believe them.
    Now Sparkles niece she's a true victim but Chi-Town dropped the ball on that years ago.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Epstein is just the tip of iceberg...Who was supplying that pedohile access tew those children. It’s some real sinister shidt going on

  • Carrington

    Bow y'all heads,

    Father God, we come before you this morning asking for a spirit of separation, Lord God. A spirit that allows us to separate the man who created the jams that define specific periods, and fond memories, throughout our lifetimes - from the man who has destroyed the lives of young, black girls (and some women) forever, Jesus.

    Fix it, Father! Fix our inability to process common sense and decency because we don't have the ability to separate the CHARACTERS that we see on MTV, BET and, The Cosby Show from the men behind the curtain, Father. That we are unable to discern that you can be famous and have a really good television show, that you can donate money to the community, that you can create a song that has our great grandmammy's stepping in the name of love while next to her scooter at the family reunion... and still be a sick f*ck in the process, Lord God.

    Lord, I ask for erasure. Erase our immediate need for the "what abouts?" and our need to bring up white men who have raped and molested white girls "TOO" when our concern should be that which no one ELSE seems to be concerned about in this country - OUR girls.

    Lord, let my people see, and allow it to connect that, if THEY let the men who molest, rape, sell, and destroy THEIR precious little white girls off with a possible probation sentence - WE ain't having it within black America. Rape OUR girls, we want you in JAIL. Lord, touch their hearts and common sense that they may stop making ignorant comparisons to white men who molest white children because, although we'd PREFER they go to jail too... what happens to abusers of BLACK children are our primary concern in this moment.

    Father God, bless the hearts of the WOMEN who continually go to bat for a man who has raped children who look just like them and their mother's and their daughters, Jesus.

    Lift the veil from our eyes so that we may clearly see that it is a GOOD thing to remove that which is unlike you, Lord, from our paths. I know it's going to be hard to convince people who would be ready to join the lynch mob for the molester down the street, but is ready to lynch the accusers when the accused created their "jam", Lord... but I know you have the ability to move mountains so, fix them, Jesus.

    Lastly, Father God... I know what the bible says about hate... but I REALLY hate how IGNORANT ASF my people can be when it comes to celebrities... remove the glitter from their eyes when they see people on television that they may understand that if they look through their iPhones (and shameful a$$ed Androids) and see videos of people they know... they will understand that celebrity works the same way - they're just on video at the BET awards... but they're real, regular, flawed people just like the ones in your iPhone.

    These, and many other, blessings we ask in your name, Lord.

    Amen

    As a former victim of sexual harassment on multiple occasions in the workplace, including by some wimmens and as someone that has been hit on even by my own relatives, including some wimmens when I was a child and a young teen, I continue to pray for the grace of my Lord and Saviour to save us all. It is no joke to be sexually violated physically or verbally. I still harbor pain from an attorney that came up from behind and placed himself against my backside as his secretary looked on in horror but later denied seeing anything. Still got em. Or an attorney that repeatedly admired my "two book ends". That's what he would repeatedly call my breasts. This fool went so far as to start calling me at home asking me to fly out of the country with him. It's very traumatic to say the least. Praying for every victim.

    Thank God my mama taught me early like before I was 8 or 9 what to look out for. She told me you're a pretty girl and there will be people that will try to come after you. At the time, I didn't quite know what she meant because she didn't spell it out sexually. She made it seem more like "watch your back at all times for stranger danger". As an adult, I now realize what she meant.

  • Scromes1212

    Well he better cop a plea cause they not going through all this to lose. He going to jail or they gonna keep trying him til he run out of money. He should let them bring forward all the cases they have then take about a 5 year plea at 30 percent if he can. Now he got a federal case so he could do his time in the Fed's instead of the state facility. Either way it's probably over for kelz

  • WhoKnew

    PeeNut was just indicted in a 5-count federal indictment out of the Eastern District of NY and they include racketeering and several violations of the Mann Act and allegations of forced labor. Violations of the Mann Act, which prohibits the transportation of anyone across state lines for illicit sexual purposes, constitute 4 of the 5 counts against Kelly.

    Someone commented that he will be locked up well into his 60s. I doubt if he ever gets out of prison alive. I believe his sentence will extend well into his 80s and he will never see the light of day outside of prison again.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    each state that he committed this phuckery in. Gerogia is next..stay tuned!

  • Scromes1212

    That case is kinda weak though. Aren't they basing it off the girls that are still with him? No way they testify against him

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I definitely don’t. It’s quite funny to me actually.

    10 years ago he thought this chit would never come back to bite and it has! He’s had a great six months ? We all know he’s twisted. Makes great music, but twisted af.

  • WhoKnew

    It will definitely be prison opposed to jail. I'm not sure but I think federal charges supercede state charges.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    OMGosh the parents are so slow. Why tf would you trust a GROWN man with your baby? They trynna be put on too, that’s why! Willing to risk their kids over $$ and fame ?????

  • Scromes1212

    I'm not a lawyer but I've seen cases where people have federal charges and state charges run concurrent. The key is to let the federal judge charge you and give you your time then ask the state judge to run it concurrent. It's his best option cause he will have to do 85% of any Fed time he gets. If he is smart he can end all this with about 5 years jail time at best maybe 3. Get back out and move on with his life

  • Scromes1212

    Y'all really think all those people actually resign? He was shown the door like everybody else lol "your fired" is trumps catch phrase. He just gives them the option to resign before he fires them

    Suddenly Kelly, like they are trying to put a face to pedophilia. Epstein is one of the worldwide cabal leaders. Lots of people in high places are his client. He has videos of some of them doing nasty things. He gets 5 years to name names but rest assure the Clintons will not be named. In the meanwhile let's parade Kelly. The sickos are out protecting each other.

    All this because Politics seem to work hand in hand and support the sycophants in Hollywood.

Our justice system only works for the rich and politically connected. RKelly is a know pedo. These celebrities are sic.

    If Kelly is guilty, lock him up and throw away the key. And while they are at it, build a case for all the priests who play with little boys footies!! I'm sick of the shenanigans, lock them all up!!!

  • lovelygamour

    unless they have physical evidence I dont want to participate with this. I dont agree with waiting 20 years to drag someone to court. its too many variables. it wasnt that long ago that men was hanged on the word of a white woman. so to see this country circle back is scary.

    I think new york is using r.kelly to prosecute epstein. we will see how it plays out. will they let the media feast on r.kelly while quietly throwing epstein and co in jail` or `will they let epstein skate while kelly does years for hearsay. im not even an r.kelly fan but I think a lot of this is hearsay and he should be shunned but not in jail. the time to complain was years ago when there was witnesses. now people are waiting until they need money. and I have seen people railroaded before so i dont care how many stories are told. i will shun a person but jail .....

  • FlorenceJohnston

    Honestly shut TF up. This beeyotch is out here raping young Black girls and we are supposed to act like it’s ok? F U and whoever thinks like you.

  • lovelygamour

    if r.kelly is guilty it wasnt even coercion but picking willing people. what epstein did was trick girls into thinking they were getting a job, then using money or scaring then into staying. so how can r.kelly be the priority when girls had to escape from epstein and co.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I have no idea what your point is.

    Epstein is connected to some really high-profile, high powered people so R Kelly's arrest won't knock Epstein out of the news especially in right wing media because they think that the Clintons are involved.

    Honestly, I think people are tired of talking about R Kelly. He's been over-exposed this year.

  • lovelygamour

    like who is funding jocelyn parents? jocelyn is young but didnt she start with kelly as an adult. how can her parents afford all this airfare/hotels for so many years? its like someone is loaning them money in the hopes of suing r.kelly. it could be that her parents are funded so people will look at kelly and not epstein/whoever else.

    epstein is far more dangerous.

  • SMDH x2

    Amen!!!

  • lovelygamour

    didnt he introduce them? i could be completely wrong but I think the father tried to bait kelly and the daughter fell in love. this whole thing is weird. I dont think kelly is holding them hostage. they seem like they want to be there.

    everyone in this kelly affair seems to be after money. no one spoke timely. its a shame.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ba wa wa wa!!!

  • lovelygamour

    the case is so weak. if they really wanted him to do jail time they shouldve investigated years ago. there doesnt seem to be any evidence and no recent victims. its weird. why everyone waited years after to go the police. and in some cases they went to the press first.

  • TheOwley

    Epstein supplied to Hollywood. Supposedly Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, and other Hollywood notables visited that island. We already know what Kelly is, so why dust him off now and parade him in the midst of the Epstein eruption. When he starts naming their favs, I expect tptb to dust up MJ corpse again and put his accusers in bright lights. They did this during the Spacey investigation. It's the "look here, not over there" routine.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So.

    Maybe if he had been convicted in 2008 and served his time he would be out now and gotten some help.

    He beat the system once but decided not to change his ways.

    Blame R Kelly's ego not the system.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Exactly.

    He got away with in 2008, but like all perverts he couldn't stop and now he had to pay the price.

  • lovelygamour

    just like how andrea constand got paid from bill cosby twice for something that seem like she was in on. i firmly believe they was in a relationship and she got mad he ended it. then she got him arrest off something from 20 years ago. then the judge convicted him cause he made a joke at the settlement hearing that was suppose to be closed.

    i think he did slip women things but i think it was in a s--ex party setting.

  • lovelygamour

    i am starting too because all this hearsay is decades old. everyone waited until they ran out of money or their life is stagnant to complain. i muted r.kelly long time ago but i believe that he was sleeping with fans and not necessarily going after kids. i also, think the ladies that are with him want to be there.

  • FlorenceJohnston

    Nah boo. A judge and a jury of 12 are going to judge that ass. Stay tuned...

  • lovelygamour

    and how did stormy daniels lawyer magically get sent a tape in the mail. then the tape doesn't seem to be kelly or its the old tape lightening up. r.kelly shouldve moved from the usa ages ago.

  • lovelygamour

    one of the greatest surgeons ever (ben carson) was appointed over hud. laughable. they shouldve put him over the f.d.a. but trump doesnt like to give people jobs that they know. even at trump org he will give someone seemingly mismatched jobs and tell them to make it work. weird. you can work your way up at trump but it will never be really competent.

  • lovelygamour

    just like with bill cosby. they put him in jail because he joked at a sealed settlement conference that he was guilty. he said it as a joke yet they used it. so by that logic cardi b should be in jail. but cardi b doesnt own land over a natural gas/oil deposit like cosby so they dont care.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • lovelygamour

    cardi didnt know what she was doing. she couldve killed those guys just like that palm beach stripper duo that killed this guy because he had a heart problem and the drugs gave him a heart attack. it someone wants to look it up it had probably 10ish years ago, the strippers was white.

    While I feel sorry for him - only because I don't want to see another Black male fail and go to jail (Bill Cosby)....I read Page six report that he was having sex with 12 and 13 year olds.
    Now, some 12 and 13 yr olds are truly adult-like. And according to page 6, he made (or they made) sex tapes with him. There's something wrong with both parties.

  • keviethedreamer

    SPEAK JENIE ?

  • Li-Wright

    Page 6 claims that he was having sex with 12 and 13 yr olds in the 1990s. That means the girls are grown women now. This took place in NYC and I guess because it was in NYC there is no statute of limitations, like in Illinois.
    There are supposedly sex tapes that he paid the girls for. I don't get it.

  • Lady” Youngblood

    I’m sure you guys will be upset about what I’m about to say, But I’m tired of them messing with this man now, enough is enough. I’m about to start listening to r Kellz again. If they gonna lock him up, do it and get it over with already. I’m black so when we say cancelled it’s cancelled and I have to stick by my people’s because in numbers together we move mountains. Gucci went and got Dapper Dan to try to get us back on board. White people need our approval on everything and without us there nothing they say they hate us but hate is just a hater wishing you could be me. But truth be told I miss wearing my Gucci and I paid way too much for it. But my sisters and bd be side eyeing me if I wear it.

    “When I was younger, I always felt like I had to make a choice. I knew

    taught, I felt like the only way you could like another girl is if you

  • dontgetblocked

    See how they're trying to make a black man the face of sexual assault again. R. Kelly's broke ass got nothing on Epstein's international billion dollar sex trafficking empire.

  • dontgetblocked

    If I could afford it, I'd buy Gucci. Nobody likes black people so what should we do? Not buy anything? I rock R. Kelly. He has good music.

  • dontgetblocked

    They're blowing smoke in our face...while the real billionaire sex traffickers are out there. Kelly can't read. They took his passport so he can't make money. They siced his ex-wife on him. They have totally torn him down. Epstein was allowed to work from his domestic and international mansions flying in his "Lolita Express".

  • Li-Wright

    Some of the charges are way extreme, like charging him with the Rico act, which is used for mobsters. You know the government always goes Overboard with charges. Half of them will be thrown out.

    Sorry but a 12 & 13 year old is never to blame IDC how physically developed they are because their minds are still under developed meaning they are too young to make adult decisions like have sex with a grown ass man. R Kelly is the only one to be blamed not those kid's

  • MRiGOThim

  • the guest

    R Kelly and Bill Cosby had years of being under suspicion with no arrest looming. Why? Why? Why? Why? did these men with means to do so not relocate to a country with a non-extradition policy. They had so much time to do so.

    Why would they put any faith in the US and wait around for years to end up arrested and get fixed convictions, because that's what's happening to R Kelly like what happened to Bill Cosby like what's NOT happening to Weinstein? Makes no sense to me.

    The minute Bill Cosby heard that hundreds of women were accusing him he should have jetted like Russell Simmons.

  • Nicol B

    The unfortunate reality is that it takes a white woman or girl to get anyones attention. Look at how swiftly actions were taken against Weinstein and Epstein.
    The other day my father said, he'll get off, talking about Acosta who made the deal. I said, no, those are white girls. He will be out of the administration real soon.

  • Nicol B

    Timing is everything! If it had not been for the white actresses coming forward against Weinstein, I don't think the Surviving R. Kelly series would have seen the light of day. Their courage paved the way for us to be heard. We know society does not value us, just look at the news.

    Coincidentally, once Epstein got arrested last week drawing negative attention on the President, we see Kelly get arrested again on more federal charges. None of this is happening by chance. His people inside turned over all of those videos. Folks are finally waking up and realizing that they will have to answer for either aiding a child predator or not prosecuting one. Either way, they're on the wrong side of what is correct.

  • Nicol B

    Folks from his camp have finally turned on him because they were threatened with prosecution. They gave over 20 videos to the feds. So, that is where the "bogus" charges are coming from. There are no new "ridiculous accusations" only old videos of him having sex with underage girls. He knew himself that the videos would be his downfall.

  • Nicol B

    A lot of sexual assault has to do with opportunity and not race. I don't disagree with you; however, if you look at assault stats regardless of sex or race, they typically come from homes with an absent father. That is how Epstein recruited his girls. That is how Catholic priests prayed on boys. Pedofiles have to be calculating and manipulative.

  • Nicol B

    R. Kelly has GREAT music! I'll rock him again when he is under the rock. LOL. I love my sistas more!!!

  • Nicol B

    A 12-year-old's brain has stopped growing in size, but it's nowhere near done developing. Abstract thinking, problem-solving, and logic are all becoming easier, but the prefrontal cortex, which plays a role in impulse control and organizational skills, is still immature.

    Maybe that is why the age of consent is not 12 or 13! A young girl may be built like a woman, but her brain is far from it.

  • Nicol B

    HELL YEAH!

  • Nicol B

    The physical evidence? over 20 sex tapes turned over by his camp. the feds threatened them with harsh prosecution, so they finally flipped. i don't know how old any of the tapes are but they supposedly show him having sex with children as young as 12.
    does that change your opinion? i think having over 20 videos is more damning than having an eye witness. would you agree with that?

  • Nicol B

    NO!! The media needs to show way way way more coverage for Epstein! He may not have the celebrity of Kelly, but he is so well connected politically and he's got billions. He can drop names of others who have partied with him. This is way bigger and I know the body count is higher. He is 63 to Kelly's 54 so do the math.

  • Nicol B

    They're both monsters! You can't really compare manipulation tactics, young lives were ruined...Black and White.

  • Solstice

    Every time you have me in stitches with these prayers ??? Amen ?? Brother Carrington Amen ??

  • the guest

    Agreed.

    I'm perplexed at how Bill Cosby and R Kelly even thought they'd make it through the suspicion and investigations without an arrest. Both these men could have been free and settled in non-extradition countries a long time ago.

    They had years of warning to get out way before they were arrested and had to hand over their passports. Bill Cosby did not have to get arrested, stand trial, or let them send him prison.

    Russell Simmons was smart and left at the first hint of a witch hunt.

  • Jussjess25

    Oh okay. I was seriously asking. I did not hear there were mire videos of sex acts with little girls.

  • T865!

    Exactly! He survived this long because he preyed on poor,young black girls (no one cares about, not even black women capping for R. Kelly)
