    Here's a question to the people who's saying the press won't respond to this horrific thing Kelly's done. Why isn't Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton doing anything to bring awareness of this and bring it to the forefront? Sharpton should be ashamed of himself not trying to reach out & help these victims!

    I am so tired of people saying that these Victims of all these twisted up sicko rich people are just looking for some money. That broke loser has no money he is sitting up in jail for UNPAID Child Support . He owes 160,000 in child support. These Women are Victims of ABUSE. Period. Stop denouncing Abuse Victims using money as an excuse to deflect the facts. He hurt all these Innocent Women. All these Women are not making up no lies. Cmon now. Get on down to reality. He thought cause he was rich and a icon music hero that he could treat people whatever way he wanted to. He caused all these Women and his own children he dont support endless pain and trauma.

    Had he tried to marry any of them they would have agreed, why isn't this happening to men, because they don't want women's money.

    This is an important story and I'm mildly disappointed that Lifetime is not letting the whole world watch it at the same time. Those of us outside the US don't have Lifetime and we want to hear the victims and support them, too. Let their voices be heard everywhere, not just in your own profit margins.

    Anyone who trashes these beautiful brave women saying they were after money has no clue what grooming is. It could happen to anyone regardless of age. You have no idea what narcisissm is and how psychologically manipulative these predators are.
    Anyone wondering why these women never left, it is because of trauma bonds that could take years to break.
    Kitti and these women were clearly groomed and getting out is hard for victims.
    R. Kelly and any other man doing this to women should be put in jail!
    These women need to realise it was not their fault and they will heal.

  • Seriously Clean AMShabazz

    For those who saying the last girl is not crying....U can see the tears fall 00:58-00:59.. I feel bad for them. Whether people think they are lying or not... This is why people dont come out with the truth alot of times bc if fear of no one believing them. Smh

    To everyone claiming the girl didn't have any tears, look closer.
    They already fell on her shirt.
    Whether this particular situation is fake or not, calling these ladies (who were children at the time) whores or saying that it's their own fault
    is exactly one of the reasons why victims keep the abuse a secret.

  • Wambui Karanja
    Wambui Karanja 5 months ago +2

    This is simple! The person who was older should have said “NO!” It’s illegal, I’m going to hurt you and so NO!
    Irregardless of “Parents pushing” as alleged or girls taking themselves, he should have said NO! When you see a child reaching for a hot pan with hot oil in it, you don’t just sit there and think hmmmm, let’s see what happens. R. Kelly was old enough to say NO since he knew it wasn’t right.

    • Candi Lumpkin
      Candi Lumpkin 3 months ago

      Wambui Karanja you are so right!! That's exactly how I feel. Even if these girls/ children came to him. He is an adult and knew they were not. Therefore he should have said absolutely not. He should have said no and gotten as far away from them as he could until they were adults. It's always up to the adults to know right from wrong and take themselves out of that situation.

    WWBBEE 5 months ago

    I am not defending but it is fair to ask why doesn't this abuse happen as often where the guy has regular money? Are some of these women trading abuse for reward? I personally believe any creep who fondles children should be put in the electric chair. As for the adults, they to have rights but if they've only been abused by Kelly we have to ask why? Most women I know would tell a regular dude to pound sand and would be out.
