R. Kelly faced child pornography charges in Cook County in 2002, but was acquitted after a trial in 2008. Family members, who haven't seen her in more than two years, think the videos were scripted and staged. The courts ruled in Kelly's favour.
Their investigation centres on what may have happened at the singer's Atlanta home. On Surviving R. Kelly, some of the alleged victims and people from Kelly's camp said that he would purposely collect information, get coerced statements, and save elicit footage of his accusers to use as collateral against the women. Van Allen says she was unaware of the girl's age at that time. "I felt like we had a connection, because I told him I was sexually abused when I was four, six, and eight years old".
If you are in the auto or at the family cookout and someone puts on R. Kelly, inform them about the many allegations against him and pull up the hundreds of articles that offer testimony from the women who say he has harmed them.
Chance also said that his original sympathy for the vocalist was rooted in an awareness of systemic injustices for both black men and black women in America.
"That makes John Legend even more of a hero for me", she added.
"I really don't want to believe it's because black girls don't matter enough". "It's just prevalent in all media, and when you see n***as getting beat up by the police, it's men". Maybe I didn't care because I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women.
R Kelly's last social media activity came on January 1, with the R&B singer promoting his new single Born to my Music.
Most streaming sites including Apple Music and Tidal still play Kelly's music.
It is right after this that McGee went on to make the big request that Kelly undergo a polygraph on TV, where the results can be seen live and no amusing business can go down.
