    The way I see it, no rumor stays a rumor that long without being proven wrong. If they’ve been calling you a pedophile for 20 years, and in that time, not only can you not prove that you’re not a pedophile, but there’s substantial evidence that supports the rumor that you’re a pedophile, chances are you’re a goddamn pedophile.

    My official opinion , if he did do t shame on him , if he ddnt , shame on the media . But you can not blame r Kelley... I blame the parents for letting their child go with any man with out supervision. 🤔

    It's so sad that there're people in this world who still think ALL THESE WOMEN WERE TELLING LIES. Each of these WOMEN has got their own details in their story but it just adds up. DADDY, MINORS, THREESOMES, NO COMMUNICATION, CONFINEMENT, NO FOOD.... etc its's just PURE EVIL.

    I have bought all his songs and i’m ready to send my woman packing if she dares to stop me from enjoying a gift from God called R Kelly. I will love him forever. I will support him forever. I pray for him and those claiming he did this he did that. Those thieves lied about that ages and were on contract, including their mama and father and mothers it friends. Poverty mentality will make women do and later say lies to make money and fame and then write a book. The lawyers need gullible women to get fame. Trying to be some Johnny Cochran or Robert Shapiro. You lost your mind.

    If one CHOOSES to put their petty, egotistical fantasies of what particular songs meant to them at any given time, over the simple fact that his so called “genius “ includes his blatant attempt to seduce, manipulate and groom his audience to accept his pure intent of lifestyle, and to masquerade his social deviances with “magical” lyrics in order to both laugh at his delusional mastery of the public and validate his issues....well then I will pray for you to get your ostrich head out of the sand sooner than later.
    I on the other hand put my energy into nothing that he has created and all of it to support those who stand up to It, fight it, and heal from it.

    I was married to one of R Kelley’s victim. She’d known him since she was 7-8 yrs old. According to what she told me, he’d begun touching her around 12 yrs old. By the time she was 21 yrs old, she thought she was in love with him. That’s how sick and pervasive the manipulation and psychological abuse he had done to her was. She was skipping college courses to go have threesomes with him. Yep, he video taped some of the sex, according to my ex.

    Money is the root to all evil. 1 Timothy 6:10. When you really understand what this means then you will see the evil in Robert Kelley, the parents, and the enablers. They all knew there was something wrong but that $ created a silence that was evil. Robert is sick but his enterouge is just as sick. It's not black and white, it's right and wrong. Robert is no King. The most high is the only King. Idolizing man is sinful. We better WAKE UP! We should be outraged that our children are being seduced by grown men and I use that loosely. No grown righteous man wants a child. That evil in your heart has consequences. That goes for Hollywood, any church, and all men and women.

      Jaffie Peters this tape was all over the internet before the trial. I sought the truth. Was it him and was the girl young. This was before today’s laws were in place about porn video. Remember, there was a dispute that she was NOT a child. But, let’s say the CHILD came forward, admitting she was 14, if I passed the video, or uploaded it for others to see, then, yes, I would belong in jail. My college degree covered media law, I’m a web master, media relations professional, so I would never do anything to lose my freedom

    Lifetime need to do a documentary titled "Surviving Hollywood," because it's full of pedophiles; that's why a lot of these young celebrities kill themselves from being passed around for a career, but people choose to speak on which ones they want to get rid of when there is no use for them just like they did with Michael Jackson. After he died he was worth more just as they'll do with R. Kelly. If he took his life today or tomorrow, he'd be worth more money than he was alive.

  • RdoubleD - Hardcore Drama&Controversy

    these people on the show seem all abundantly lost and confused by the guilt permeating the whole studio.
    It's a shame, culturally speaking.

  • RdoubleD - Hardcore Drama&Controversy

    You shouldn't divide the artist from the person. You should make efforts in order to understand because understanding improves society, not guilt.

    I saw that disgusting tape and I have to say that I SMDH when R. Kelly says that it isn't him. Of course it is! There is a part where the young lady is dancing to a song by Backstreet Boys and you hear a voice telling her on how to move. The voice is R. Kelly's! I suppose he would have us believe that that wasn't his voice either! Does he really think that we are all that stupid?

    So he used to and maybe still has a house in the suburbs of Chicago. I lived also in Olympia Fields. I went to the high school and the one of the bus stops was right on the corner of his house. EVERYONE in the police and adults in the neighborhood knew what was going on. They used to tease the kids who got off at that bus stop. Everything they are saying is True. All his dancer and his team knew what was happening. So did his wife.

    He married Aaliyah she was 14 years old; Fact " At the age of 12, Aaliyah signed with Jive Records and her uncle Barry Hankerson's Blackground Records, Hankerson introduced her to R. Kelly, who became her mentor and lover." They pimped her out! These people knew what he was and how he was around young girls. This is not gossip its a fact. But the music business shut it up really quick; anyone else would have been in jail for statutory rape. So now all of a sudden the entertainment industry is putting the career pedophiles and rapist who got a pass because they have a talent that made money for their studios out in the cold. I ain't buying it. I am sure these movie and music studio have covered up a lot more then just rape and molestation. Their clearing house so they don't go down with the ship. We need to be focusing on the companies and industries that allow this crap to go on and not just the individual.

    I'm an adult now but when the tape came out I was a very young child. I didn't understand the full aspect of everything but I knew I didn't think it was okay for someone to pee on someone else. So at parties I would still dance to his music because my mind hadn't yet developed enough to form my own solid opinions about how I want to live my life, the world as a whole and societies.

    I'm 25 now. I like to DJ and I've never played any of his music and I never will. I don't support men that are knowingly rapist, abusers and misogynists. So it's not just him. I have a list of men that are in different fields or normal people that I don't support because I have core values and beliefs that I stick to. All women are important and I hear these black women. I believe these black women that have been abused.

    So why can the jury be Razzle-dazzled...but The powers that be can’t razzle-dazzle the general public???? All you have to do is really listening to what these girls are saying and they’re telling on themselves. the series is full of half truths that make no sense. They try to distract us with soft piano melodies and dark imagery of an empty ass tour bus with no fucking people on it!!!! For instance, Lisa Ann Says that she took the tape that had a threesome of her, Rob and the “14 year old “right? She states that that’s the only tape she took out of a COLLECTION of tapes because it had her name on it, and gave it to someone for her safety. WHO THE HELL IS SOMEONE?? Why won’t you tell us who that is???
    But I’ll look pass that.. so, the tape Played in court did not include Lisa, right??
    So the question is WHY??
    If everybody knew that the girls parents were going to be “paid off” Why didn’t They dig up the tape with the three some on it and Lisa testifies that that IS her and get a conviction????
    Because if they have the tape including the “14-year-old” and Kelly by themselves, They didn’t get it from Lisa Ann. She only took the one tape from a COLLECTION remember???
    So where are the tapes With all the girls who are willing to testify that that is them??? I’ll wait....Don’t worry I have more. So let’s get to Ms Sparkle...She says everybody knew for years that Kells was a Predator....So why knowing this information would you bring your niece around a guy that you say you knew was this way??????
    Once again I’ll wait....

    kelly grew up in church unfortunately in the black church if kelly was an actual preacher he would have been crucified by now, however when it came to singers in the church they always got a pass no matter how promiscuous or worldly they were it was always frowned upon but nobody would ever do anything serious to a singer because they were so relied upon each week. Singers especially in the black community have always been given a pass because their voices excuse their behaviour...and it's deceptive .. how can someone sing like an angel and actually be a devil?

I make a matter of prayer that these parents were not making money off of their daughters and now that they are broke that they are broke trying to make more. The reason I say this is because why would they take their story to Lifetime instead of law.

But my mama wouldn't let that happen now literally. But I didn't think that it was about the age part I always thought that he just loved her and that's why.

  • Blue Indigo

    Wonder why his music streams increased since the documentary? The core of R. Kelly's support comes from black women/women of color...always has and always will. Incredibly ironic indeed. Many of them (most of those supporters) have proclaimed their support for him, even after these reports...and they have vowed to continue to support him and to buy & play his music. The "black community" has to come to terms with that.
    I predicted that this would be the case. So-called "Black America" has a moral deficit. Money, fame, and the badboy image in particular are things that most black women can't resist...and most would trade their souls to get it. This is a subject that the media won't tackle because it's just too taboo. But other black women can tackle it. But the question is....will they? Sadly....I don't think that will happen.
