No stranger to insane news, R. Kelly, the ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ singer, is being accused of heinous things this week. This is particularly disturbing when you consider ‘that’ video of him supposedly urinating on an underage girl. Apparently marrying R&B singer ‘Aaliyah’ when she was 15. Also along with the child pornography charges he was acquitted of back in 2008.
R.Kelly Running An Abusive Cult?!
A Buzzfeed ‘news’ report surfaced on Monday, alleging that Kelly is running an ‘abusive cult.’ He is also accused of keeping young women in his Atlanta and Chicago homes against their will. The father of one of the victims was a source for their report, and has further gone on to say to TMZ on Friday: That Kelly had a relationship with the women trapped in his home/s when they were under 18. The supposed victim herself was seen in a bizarre video, insisting that she was not brainwashed and completely fine. Also alleging that her father sent her to Kelly’s house. He denied this in a later TMZ video.
A statement from R. Kelly’s lawyer denied the allegations and said that Kelly. “Was alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him… He will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.” There have been petitions for him to be dropped from Sony. But none of his upcoming 14 tour dates seems to have suffered from the news. Almost as though the father disapproves of his daughter’s relationship to such an extent that he made the allegations just to get her away from him.
But with Kelly’s past of attracting very negative press from his disturbing behaviour? Hopefully we will have an answer soon.
