    Everyone in R.Kelly's circle, including this bald moron, knew of his indiscretions and they all need to be arrested.

    They are both at fault. What 15 year old marries a man that’s so much older than them. R kelly is a dangerous predator and the girl just let it happen. That’s what happens when you hang with the wrong crowd

    I’m just now there any video anywhere or interview anywhere where there’s a reporter or anything of that sort asking R.Kelly w the proof in their hands that he went & married her after lying about her age, asking why did he do that?. That would be an interview worth seeing. People are asking him stuff like “have you had sex w a minor or whatever” & even if there’s video as “proof” they seem to say he’s innocent because they can’t tell it’s him or if the girl is underage. So...if they have solid proof that he married Aaliyah when she was still underage & lied about her age, why isn’t there anyone asking him why did he marry her? *scratches head*

    This girl is dead let her rest in peace so all of a sudden you're want to bring this up get some real evidence against this man age of consent is 16-17 to back to our great grandparents and uncle so why going after them my grandmother said my grandfather was younger than her

  • MirrorImageOfYou
    MirrorImageOfYou 3 months ago

    My aunt was married at 15 to my uncle who was then 20. My aunt's mom signed permission for the marriage because she had got pregnant. Aaliyah didn't just run off and get married. I am sure there was a discussion with her mom/parents and she gave consent to this. Sick if it happened because there are so many other women out here of age he could have been with but still it seems legal if the parents gave the ok.

    All praises to John Legend for speaking up. Shame on you Jay Z and Lady Gaga! You choose to hold your silence when you can help break this culture of abuse on young women by powerful men.

    He is a sicko. I saw the sex tapes & what disturbed me was that the young girls were also enjoying the sex and pornography with him. I know they didn’t know any better, but the fact they were so into the sexual act really really bothered me.

    So because he didn't physically see R.Kelly bang Aaliyah it may not have happened? Like he said, where there's smoke there's fire. HE MARRIED HER. He is a predator and i say that bc its clear he preys on young girls bc they are easier to manipulate and control.

    not only is it difficult because of the women are the girls that he get the stuff to you but nobody want to take them to court where they're denying the he did these things people don't have time for stuff like that that's the county or the state is not going to help you when you are denying and then you have girl said he didn't do it to me he had to do it to me so you know don't blame the white man I wouldn't prosecute him anyway they don't have this shit together it didn't make sense what you need to do now is stop his music and I don't know why I'm saying is black people not to stick together when I do that but that's what you need to be born Kat it

    If Aaliyah was still alive today, I think she would have realized that she'd have to say the truth about R Kelly sooner or later, to protect other girls. I believe she would.

    R. Kelly needs to pay for his crimes. . AND....Aaliyah liked older men who could help her career...all movers and shakers in the industry at the time...Jay Z, Dame Dash, DMX. Doesn't seem so naive and angelic to me.

    This man is admitting it, but also trying not to incriminate himself. He knows if he says "I witnessed R. Kelly with underage girls", that he could and would be persecuted for it by us (the public) and possibly the judicial system as an accomplice to statutory rape. He's playing both sides, and trying not to destroy his rep. Now if there were no cameras or mic's, and the questions were written down, his answers would have a whole lot more detail to them. Let's just leave it at that. We all know this man is no saint. He probably helped R. Kelly get any young woman he wanted back in the day.

    Word has it that Aaliyah was even pregnant by R. Kelly and that's some of the reason he married her! He evidentally knew that a 27 year old impreginating a 15 year old was a recipe for a lot of trouble! R. Kelly has never ceased of being a pedophile snake! He slithers around and ready to strike the next unsuspecting underage black girl he can find! I got his M.O.!

    To me a pedophile is a person who is sexually attracted to an underdeveloped girl or boy. So basically 15 and under. Because biologically we are attracted to womanhood. Thicc booty, breasts. Its biology bich, cant argue wiith it.

    Abusing a girl is very bad, regardless of her age. But it's worse when she's younger and not mature enough to understand it or to protect herself. Having said that, I still think that all these men are playing innocent and angels. EVERY man is the same way: If a girl looks physically mature then they see the body, not the age. Plus, those girls wanted to be with him despite their age and never complained about him being too old. They complained about him being abusive. Meaning, that if he wouldn't be abusive, they would stay with him. No one forced them to be with him in the first place.

    I guess people had forgotten about the baby she lost with R Kelly years ago when he illegally married her??? Heard that straight off of V103 radio station in Baltimore when I was a teen. My mouth dropped to the floor when I heard it! He's been a pedophile and never served time. Everyone knew but nothing changed. Shameful dirty secrets people keep and because of that; he was allowed to continue to do it to lord knows how many other children. Smh.
