    So she was 17 when she met him but my main question is WHERE ARE THE PARENTS??? Anita no way I'm letting my 17 year old go out to dinner with some man ... oh he's R.Kelly will guess what mom, dad , brothers and uncles are going too smh I'm more disgusted with the parents than anything but this is the kind of world we live in smh

    For any and everyone who has never set foot in a newsroom......hear me clearly. NETWORKS DO NOT PAY FOR INTERVIEWS. Im a 20-year news vet. I don't care what you heard at the barbershop. At MOST they were flown to the interview site and put in a hotel. That's it. No one interviewed on GMA, Today, CNN, (outside of network correspondents) gets a check. If people were paid for interviews, it would bring into question the validity of their claims. There is no way Dream Hampton or anyone on the production team put a line item in their budget to pay for Sparkle. If they did....don't you think she would have had better bangs?

  • noirchild58

    Did anyone notice R Kelly's older brother Bruce's comments? He said, "So he had teenage girls. I like older women. It's just a choice." No, Bruce, it's a FELONY. Bruce seemed totally okay with his brother's behavior. No big deal. Bruce also seemed puzzled when younger brother Carey defended himself against accusations by Robert's attorney that he [Carey] was the one shown on the tape with the underage girl. Apparently R offered Carey a six-figure settlement IF he would take the blame. Bruce said, "I'll never understand why he didn't take the money. He could have been rich." Is that SICK or what?

      But turning in someone famous and having a documentary can open the eyes to a lot of people so they can stand up if they see something suspicious. If famous people can get locked up for something like this then the rate can go down and, even if it's just by a little bit, that's still hundreds even thousands of lives saved from predators. Next up is Harvey Weinstein ❤

      Mental manipulation is similar to being held against your will. The power dynamics between a grown man and a teenage girl is way skewed. What he was doing is *GROOMING* them. No different than other pedophiles or even cult leaders. You may look back and think that you wouldnt have fallen for the same traps as they did but you probably would have.

      +Ruta Tautuaa Bless your heart it sounds like you were reffering to yourself. No, I wasn't "fast" when I was 14, if that's what you were asking. I'm exhausted with these stories of women who "willingly" spread their legs, perform acts then...cry victim after they got used up then discarded. Now it hurts after the fact? Women need to be held accountable for their actions too. I brought up priests because someone said I was "defending "predators". You were real quick to say that was the church's problem. Smh. you got no "empathy" for the children but sympathizing "whorish" behavior. I'd say you're part of the problem as well. Please explain what "pain" these women have that calls for "empathy" I'll wait..

      Mind Yours now i’m with you on that last part. I refuse to believe that as well. But the way she told her story was she was willing to do whatever it took to get her a singing career. They left out a-lot of stuff that was told in different interviews. Never do i believe what happened to these girls was there fault, but i do believe at that age she knew he was too old for her.

      She may have known that it was wrong, but someone that young us incapable of understanding the long-term consequences of his actions; hence the reason that age of consent laws exist. I think that these women and girls were attracted to him sexually, but I refuse to believe that either of them expected to be physically abused and sexually degraded.
