He was always a creepy guy that seemed to get away with nastiness due to his celebrity status.

He's been in trouble before for allegations of sexual misconduct so its not hard to believe. He could use his celebrity status along with a charismatic personality for nefarious purposes easily. He sounds like a person with the same mentality as Cosby and Jared Fogel. I hope if its really true the authorities kick his door in tonight and face plant him into his expensive rug before hauling him away.

The guy seems to be a huge pervert and a vile sexual predator:

A Timeline of R. Kelly's Alleged Sexual Misconduct | Complex

Aug. 31, 1994: He illegally marries Aaliyah

When Aaliyah began her career, it was as R. Kelly's protégé. Kelly wrote much of her first album, Age Ain't Nothin But A Number—a title that, in retrospect lent little subtlety to his intentions for their relationship. When they were married, Kelly was 27 and Aaliyah was 15; a marriage certificate falsified Aaliyah's age as 18.


Feb. 3, 2002: The sex tape leaks

In the most damning piece of evidence against R. Kelly that's come to light to date, a tape was leaked to the Chicago Sun-Times that alleged to show Kelly having sex with (and urinating on) an unidentified girl, who was said to have been 14 years old at the time of the recording. At the time, Kelly denied that he was the man in the video (although many mentioned the gold records visible in the background of the clips).

In June 2002, Kelly was hit with 21 counts of child pornography stemming from the tape. His Florida residence was searched, and images of Kelly engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl were allegedly found on a digital camera. These images on were said to be same as the ones on the tape he was indicted for. He was arrested in January 2003 for those charges, but they were dropped in March 2004, after a circuit court judge suppressed the images.

A full five years after the tape was initially leaked, in February 2007, Kelly's case went to court. After numerous delays, including everything from the judge getting injured during a fall to a debate over whether the sex tape would be played in public, opening statements were heard on May 20, 2008. The case was completed on June 9, 2008—R. Kelly was found not guilty.

If you believe those are innocent women then i have a bridge to sell you.

Even the "girl" on the sex tape was not so innocent. Also, her Aunty was the one who pushed her to the arms of Kelly.

What was 15 year old Aaliyah doing by herself with a 27 year old, R&B singer, who was extremely sexual songs??

Where are the "parents"??

The six women are not being held against their will. They can leave anytime they want.

A quote from the article: "They went to police in Florida, Georgia and Chicago, they have had well-being checks conducted and the women come out and say we want to be here and they’re of legal age, so the police and lawyers can’t do anything."

And I don't buy all the amateur pop-psychology brain-washing theories or that he has them mesmerized.

They say they want to be there.

R.Kelly has $$$ and can provide a certain lifestyle. (they don't have to work, they can eat at the most expensive restaurants, buy expensive clothes, vacation at luxurious spots, get into the hottest nightclubs, etc)

Your post makes no sense. First you blame the girls, then you blame the parents. Which is it? R. Kelly has no culpability in your view?

I don't care if a girl smokes, drinks, and has had sex a hundred times. That doesn't make it okay for you or R. Kelly to have your way with her.

If a female is of age, then nothing can be done, she has consented to whatever is going on in her life. However, when a female "smokes, drinks and has had sex a hundred times", "NO" means NO. Ever see the 1980's movie "The Accused" with Jodie Foster? Based on a true story of a "loose" woman who was gang ra*ed in a pool hall/bar. She kept saying "NO" but because of her past history the men ignored her and felt they could do what they wanted. Went to court and the bystanders egging it on were also found guilty, even though they did not participate. Powerful movie, and one of the reasons I have strong opinions of "NO means NO". I could have consentual relations with 100 different men, but if I don't want to with you, my "NO means NO."

So age of consent doesn't matter if you consent?

Fine to be sexually exploited at 15 if your parents don't protect you?

It is ok to be raped if your auntie is responsible?

Get help. You are a very sick human being. I don't care if the mods ding me on this. You need to hear it.
