Don't forget "In 1990, 16-year-old Garcia met Prince backstage in Barcelona after he saw a tape of her dancing. According to Garcia, she soon moved into his Paisley Park home and he became her guardian." - Wikipedia Also, add Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis , Wood Allen, etc, etc to the list.

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? (people forget Lucifer's first job was to sing)

Niggas cant even see the trend going on it's super sad.. smh
“Everyone needs to be in jail that helped him”. Of course that’s the entire Music and Film industry. Wait til you see what’s next.
Hung out with Rkelly. Love him...but he does need help. Mental.

Listen its not Becky,yes he is a perv yes he should be in jail but white people dont care nothing for black women,this is wound that wont heal and black women need to stop supporting him and going to his concerts and telling going to concerts saying they want be hostages until then nothing. Will happen.

@theDJ Ok so you would have no problem with a black person being entertained by antisemitic comedy, music or performances. No the parents of aaliyah did not approve that's why she got divorced and the music and relationships ties ended.

I knew R.Kelly was trash back when that tape came out. Anyone who said that wasn't him wasn't either dumb or blind. It was him win that tape 100%. That being said I wish is one of my favorite songs of all time. The man has genius music. Which completely sucks, it's conflicting as a human being.

I will never stop playing his music! Either should you! His talent is what I listen too! Now in my opinion if what they say is true he would or should be locked up. Yet if its not... the parents or money hungry ppl should be held accountable as well!!!

Things should have been done in 1996 when a lot of mess was coming to the forefront. Robert Kelly was a hot mess back then and a hot mess now. Shame on him and all others involved. 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.

When he was with Aaliyah I was all for it but that's because I was younger to her I was 14 and I thought her people let that go on. And I wanted to be with him around the age. 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. Hey tell all these people came out with their stories. And then I have a daughter I will miss the person up literally. And I named my daughter Aaliyah

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.

People who still sing RKelly’s praises, (JayZ, and other trash bucket artists) are being willfully ignorant. No one is without sin...you must take a look at the weight of those sin. The length of time and the long list of otracities made by RKelly...all this time; come on now. Snap out of it. If we continue to support people with these issues after its been publicly revealed, we only aid and abed these sick folk. For those of you who still say you REALLY “love” RKelly like that? *MUTE him. Hitting his pockets and his ego is a start to help him see that his actions are hurting a community. It can lead to a STOP on his pedophilia, where he has a history of destroying our young and older women’s lives. This can lead to seeing that he gets the mental wellness help he desperately needs. Please don’t be one of those people that does nothing bc it doesn’t directly effect you personally.

DO THEY HAVE A TAPE, wHERE SOMEONE FROM THE DOCUMENTARY KNOCKS ON HIS DOOR, SEND LETTERS OF INTERVIEW REQUEST ect Offer Him a chance to dispute .. This gonna come down to. DATES AND TIMES & LOCATIONS. THE TRUTH ALWAYS LEAVES A PATTERN,, A LIE LEAVES A TRAIL. WHAT IF A JURY COMES BACK NOT GUILTY. !!! lets allow a jury do what they do if it comes to that, why after all these years, why not exposure before he became wealthy?? IF TRUE IT GOES BACK YEARS before he walked onto the world stage. wtH. HOW DARE PPL, pass judgment about this. (I know I/ME) wasn't there,) Only the PPlL that were there and are willing to come forward with facts that can be demonstrated. Ok RK can bump but all the bumps are about the same tone area. Until there is ABSOLUTE PROOF, IN AN OPEN LEGAL FORUM & THE JURY CONVICTS ?? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DUDE DID, AS THAT IS NOT MY JOB, IM GONNA TRUST THE JURY THAT GETS TO SEE AND STUDY EVERY PIECE OF THIS MATTER. JUST PLAY BY THE RULES FIRST. ONCE HE IS CHARGED ??? it won't matter what it is, he must convince a jury that he should not go to jail or is not directly responsible for any of the offered incidents. WOW ALL THE PPL SPEAKING about something they overheard from other ppl that weren't there but got it from a reliable source LOL THOSE PPL ALL HAVE DIFFERENT AGENDAS, IF THEY ARE GONNA NOW COME FORWARD: THERE SHOULD BE LEGAL DOCUMENTS SIGNED AS IF ( if ) the jury comes back or the defense, his lawyers should have to right to regain loses their client may have suffered?? besides the trial HAS NOT 1! PERSON EVERY WENT TO THE POLICE, AND IF HE WAS THAT (BIZY ) WHO WAS HIS HELPERS. IF HE WAS DOING THIS, SOMEONE HE EMPLOYED MAY KNOW, PRO OR CON & THIS PERSON Presents WITH CLEAN HANDS? THEN THAT MAY BE A BASE TO BUILD A SOLID CASE ON. but ppl are humans, No person on Earth is PERFECT. ( just saying )

I actually respect they're having the fricken Conversation,..they weren't loud enough back then. But if you saw those videos (back then), not sure how you didn't see the darkness? They're probably unavailable now because they're "Child PORN". Think about that!! You can't LEGALLY and for sometime (guessing since the 1960s) morally have consensual "Relations" with an underaged person. The Alyiah issue alone puts it in perspective.

The world of global entertainment and music, especially the American version is one heck of a world of debauchery in all its forms and definition full of all freaks and weirdos imaginable. But when it comes to another high profile black man in R Kelly suddenly they demand a never-touched-a-woman clean soul. And also suddenly, the same media that has been muted and developed speak-up anoxeria when blacks were being unjustly murdered in cold-blood in their numbers by law enforcement agents in American are now the ones leading the charge of hate the monster. And you see especially the same black people lined-up on the que prepared for them to hate on one of their own without the slightest doubt. Sometimes when one look at all these charade of hate R Kelly bandwagon objectively, and many people still can not see through it all, then it begs to ask the question, would Kanye have been right when he said 400 years of slavery...for that long...it pretty much looks and sounds like it's by choice? Because all these black people's seemingly collective blindness and stark handicap to see through the veil of what's unfolding is definitely by choice.

How about doing the same documentary on the Catholic church and all of the children molested by priests? Why have we never had this discussion with the same intensity? And why were the charges dismissed against Harvey Weinstein for doing worse than what R. Kelly is accused of and no one is making a single sound about it? 🤔I believe the sexual misconduct is systematic within the entertainment industry and if everyone comes forward to expose all the people involved, we would no longer have an entertainment industry because everyone will be in jail.😂🤣

The age of consent in many states is 16 , most of his victims were 16 , most of them willingly went to him and a lot of their parents willingly let their daughters go to him with some promise of a record deal , they knew r Kelly was a depraved morally corrupt sicko. He shows signs of being a narcissist or low level sociopath. Most men of fame in our history were sick bastards . Henry the 8th, all the Caesar’s, Elvis Presley , Jeffrey Epstein ,Woody Allen, Kevin spacey etc the list goes on

AMERICAN HERD MENTALITY working overtime. John Legend is jealous of the REAL LEGEND, R. KELLY and was there to impress his wife, nothing else. R.Kelly admitted he is a freak. Mathew Knowles knew this fact and refused to expose his daughter and her group to R.Kelly, and he is not here making any stupid excuses like you all. If these women and their families sought out R. Kelly and decided to tango with him, don't cry AFTER things did not end the way you wanted it. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for YOUR actions and choices, I do not feel sorry for you. MOVE ON and leave R. Kelly alone. Every single one of these HYPOCRITES condemning R.Kelly has a cemetery in his closet but have not been busted yet, and here they are pretending to be Angels.

This has nothing to do with black/white, has to do with fame & fortune. I honestly don’t feel bad for half of these women, they literally sat in silence for the money. MONEY .. just be honest, why speak up now? It’s too funny & it doesn’t add up. I understand domestic abuse is a thing, but bro.. the whole time they keep saying “ but no one spoke up, no one says anything? “ why?? Because they are comfortable getting abused as long as it’s profitable to them. Stay woke, everyone gets judged the same through gods eyes. Color doesn’t exist.

When do we stop separating the art from the person? When R.Kelly promoted in his music who he was outside of his art. I feel the accountability is watered down when people try to separate the two. If grocery store owner is racist 9x10 a individual will stop buying or going to that store because of the racism even if that store always have the best deals in town. In total you rid yourself of the the person and the establishment. And here we have someone who was molesting young girls and people want to still praise him for his music. Who cares about his music at this point and his accolades when your a know rapist.
Bayetae Shropshire
+blahblahblah And as far as you never doing that, I mean life has stages you pick and choose what you tolerate. Just like people are picking to justify R. Kelly's actions.
Bayetae Shropshire
+blahblahblah I'm saying the exact same thing. At the end of the day Art and a persons character outside of their art can't be separated in my eyes. I feel a person character and who they is what makes the music so how can you separate the two?

The thing about separating the art from the man in this case is his songs are about teenage girls. He is writing with these girls in mind but has a good beat though. With Bill Cosby the man is disgusting but this work in TV and movies is good. He wasn't creating art inspired by the women he drugged and assaulted his art was about wholesome family, etc. R. Kelly makes songs talking about "I like it when she calls me daddy" and he wrote and produced Aaliyah's album and "Age ain't nothing but a number, throwing down ain't nothing but a thing, this something I have for you it'll never change." And he called himself the chocolate pied piper, you can't separate his "art" is who he is.
