Here’s My Take On R. Kelly’s Recent Trial
Of course, I’ve been paying attention to this R. Kelly saga, and here’s my opinion on all of this.
Is Robert Kelly nasty? A pedophile? A crook?
Is the man just an all-around bad human being?
Based on things I have been told, off the record, adding past accusations with the new ones...
I would have to say absolutely 100% yes!
Do I condone any of the behavior that he has been accused of?
Do I believe the accusations against him?
Not all of them, but I do believe that almost all of the accusations brought forth are true.
In my opinion, all those grown women that were featured in the documentary Surviving R.Kelly were all in it for the money and clout.
I honestly think it’s all a money grab. None of these women were held against their own will, and never filed charges.
In most of the accusations, you hear of parents consenting to their children being around R. Kelly to work on "music" in hopes of getting into the music industry.
This makes me believe that they were aware of what he’s been accused of in the past and they did not care.
R. Kelly is being charged with racketeering and sex trafficking.
Last week, an ex-girlfriend of the disgraced singer testified that Kelly forced her and other women he dealt with to write fake letters admitting to crimes so he could exploit them, and that he told them to record damaging videos that could be used against him.
She confessed that she told Kelly she was 18 when she was really 17.
She also alleged he knowingly infected her with herpes, forced her to get an abortion, and forced her to smear feces on her face.
A First For Everything
Earlier this week, a man known as "Lewis" was the first male to accuse R. Kelly of sexual abuse. "Lewis" testified against R. Kelly, saying he met the singer when he was 17 at the drive-thru at Mcdonald's.
After getting Kelly's number, he hoped that would propel his music career.
He told the court the singer performed oral sex on him and that he stopped after he saw Lewis wasn't enjoying it.
Another woman had more horrible accusations against the singer, saying he raped her and tried to rape her friend a few days before it was announced he married the late singer Aaliyah in 1995.
All of these people who have made accusations against Kelly have similar stories, so it's kind of hard to not believe at least some of them.
He was acquitted back in 2008, but in 2021, in my opinion, R. Kelly is going down and going down hard.
