    I'm an adult now but when the tape came out I was a very young child. I didn't understand the full aspect of everything but I knew I didn't think it was okay for someone to pee on someone else. So at parties I would still dance to his music because my mind hadn't yet developed enough to form my own solid opinions about how I want to live my life, the world as a whole and societies.

    I'm 25 now. I like to DJ and I've never played any of his music and I never will. I don't support men that are knowingly rapist, abusers and misogynists. So it's not just him. I have a list of men that are in different fields or normal people that I don't support because I have core values and beliefs that I stick to. All women are important and I hear these black women. I believe these black women that have been abused.

    So why can the jury be Razzle-dazzled...but The powers that be can’t razzle-dazzle the general public???? All you have to do is really listening to what these girls are saying and they’re telling on themselves. the series is full of half truths that make no sense. They try to distract us with soft piano melodies and dark imagery of an empty ass tour bus with no fucking people on it!!!! For instance, Lisa Ann Says that she took the tape that had a threesome of her, Rob and the “14 year old “right? She states that that’s the only tape she took out of a COLLECTION of tapes because it had her name on it, and gave it to someone for her safety. WHO THE HELL IS SOMEONE?? Why won’t you tell us who that is???
    But I’ll look pass that.. so, the tape Played in court did not include Lisa, right??
    So the question is WHY??
    If everybody knew that the girls parents were going to be “paid off” Why didn’t They dig up the tape with the three some on it and Lisa testifies that that IS her and get a conviction????
    Because if they have the tape including the “14-year-old” and Kelly by themselves, They didn’t get it from Lisa Ann. She only took the one tape from a COLLECTION remember???
    So where are the tapes With all the girls who are willing to testify that that is them??? I’ll wait....Don’t worry I have more. So let’s get to Ms Sparkle...She says everybody knew for years that Kells was a Predator....So why knowing this information would you bring your niece around a guy that you say you knew was this way??????
    Once again I’ll wait....

    kelly grew up in church unfortunately in the black church if kelly was an actual preacher he would have been crucified by now, however when it came to singers in the church they always got a pass no matter how promiscuous or worldly they were it was always frowned upon but nobody would ever do anything serious to a singer because they were so relied upon each week. Singers especially in the black community have always been given a pass because their voices excuse their behaviour...and it's deceptive .. how can someone sing like an angel and actually be a devil? (people forget Lucifer's first job was to sing)

    I knew R.Kelly was trash back when that tape came out. Anyone who said that wasn't him wasn't either dumb or blind. It was him win that tape 100%. That being said I wish is one of my favorite songs of all time. The man has genius music. Which completely sucks, it's conflicting as a human being.

    Things should have been done in 1996 when a lot of mess was coming to the forefront. Robert Kelly was a hot mess back then and a hot mess now. Shame on him and all others involved. I make a matter of prayer that these parents were not making money off of their daughters and now that they are broke that they are broke trying to make more. The reason I say this is because why would they take their story to Lifetime instead of law.

      When he was with Aaliyah I was all for it but that's because I was younger to her I was 14 and I thought her people let that go on. And I wanted to be with him around the age. But my mama wouldn't let that happen now literally. But I didn't think that it was about the age part I always thought that he just loved her and that's why. Hey tell all these people came out with their stories. And then I have a daughter I will miss the person up literally. And I named my daughter Aaliyah

  • Blue Indigo

    Wonder why his music streams increased since the documentary? The core of R. Kelly's support comes from black women/women of color...always has and always will. Incredibly ironic indeed. Many of them (most of those supporters) have proclaimed their support for him, even after these reports...and they have vowed to continue to support him and to buy & play his music. The "black community" has to come to terms with that.
    I predicted that this would be the case. So-called "Black America" has a moral deficit. Money, fame, and the badboy image in particular are things that most black women can't resist...and most would trade their souls to get it. This is a subject that the media won't tackle because it's just too taboo. But other black women can tackle it. But the question is....will they? Sadly....I don't think that will happen.

    People who still sing RKelly’s praises, (JayZ, and other trash bucket artists) are being willfully ignorant.
    No one is without must take a look at the weight of those sin.
    The length of time and the long list of otracities made by RKelly...all this time; come on now. Snap out of it.
    If we continue to support people with these issues after its been publicly revealed, we only aid and abed these sick folk.
    For those of you who still say you REALLY “love” RKelly like that?
    *MUTE him. Hitting his pockets and his ego is a start to help him see that his actions are hurting a community.
    It can lead to a STOP on his pedophilia, where he has a history of destroying our young and older women’s lives.
    This can lead to seeing that he gets the mental wellness help he desperately needs.
    Please don’t be one of those people that does nothing bc it doesn’t directly effect you personally.

    wtH. HOW DARE PPL, pass judgment about this. (I know I/ME) wasn't there,) Only the PPlL that were there and are willing to come forward with facts that can be demonstrated. Ok RK can bump but all the bumps are about the same tone area. Until there is ABSOLUTE PROOF, IN AN OPEN LEGAL FORUM & THE JURY CONVICTS ?? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DUDE DID, AS THAT IS NOT MY JOB, IM GONNA TRUST THE JURY THAT GETS TO SEE AND STUDY EVERY PIECE OF THIS MATTER. JUST PLAY BY THE RULES FIRST. ONCE HE IS CHARGED ??? it won't matter what it is, he must convince a jury that he should not go to jail or is not directly responsible for any of the offered incidents. WOW ALL THE PPL SPEAKING about something they overheard from other ppl that weren't there but got it from a reliable source LOL THOSE PPL ALL HAVE DIFFERENT AGENDAS, IF THEY ARE GONNA NOW COME FORWARD: THERE SHOULD BE LEGAL DOCUMENTS SIGNED AS IF ( if ) the jury comes back or the defense, his lawyers should have to right to regain loses their client may have suffered?? besides the trial HAS NOT 1! PERSON EVERY WENT TO THE POLICE, AND IF HE WAS THAT (BIZY ) WHO WAS HIS HELPERS. IF HE WAS DOING THIS, SOMEONE HE EMPLOYED MAY KNOW, PRO OR CON & THIS PERSON Presents WITH CLEAN HANDS? THEN THAT MAY BE A BASE TO BUILD A SOLID CASE ON. but ppl are humans, No person on Earth is PERFECT. ( just saying )

    You can't LEGALLY and for sometime (guessing since the 1960s) morally have consensual "Relations" with an underaged person. The Alyiah issue alone puts it in perspective.

    The world of global entertainment and music, especially the American version is one heck of a world of debauchery in all its forms and definition full of all freaks and weirdos imaginable. But when it comes to another high profile black man in R Kelly suddenly they demand a never-touched-a-woman clean soul. And also suddenly, the same media that has been muted and developed speak-up anoxeria when blacks were being unjustly murdered in cold-blood in their numbers by law enforcement agents in American are now the ones leading the charge of hate the monster. And you see especially the same black people lined-up on the que prepared for them to hate on one of their own without the slightest doubt. Sometimes when one look at all these charade of hate R Kelly bandwagon objectively, and many people still can not see through it all, then it begs to ask the question, would Kanye have been right when he said 400 years of slavery...for that pretty much looks and sounds like it's by choice? Because all these black people's seemingly collective blindness and stark handicap to see through the veil of what's unfolding is definitely by choice.

    How about doing the same documentary on the Catholic church and all of the children molested by priests? Why have we never had this discussion with the same intensity? And why were the charges dismissed against Harvey Weinstein for doing worse than what R. Kelly is accused of and no one is making a single sound about it? 🤔I believe the sexual misconduct is systematic within the entertainment industry and if everyone comes forward to expose all the people involved, we would no longer have an entertainment industry because everyone will be in jail.😂🤣

    The age of consent in many states is 16 , most of his victims were 16 , most of them willingly went to him and a lot of their parents willingly let their daughters go to him with some promise of a record deal , they knew r Kelly was a depraved morally corrupt sicko. He shows signs of being a narcissist or low level sociopath. Most men of fame in our history were sick bastards .

    AMERICAN HERD MENTALITY working overtime. John Legend is jealous of the REAL LEGEND, R. KELLY and was there to impress his wife, nothing else.
    R.Kelly admitted he is a freak. Mathew Knowles knew this fact and refused to expose his daughter and her group to R.Kelly, and he is not here making any stupid excuses like you all.
    If these women and their families sought out R. Kelly and decided to tango with him, don't cry AFTER things did not end the way you wanted it.
    TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for YOUR actions and choices, I do not feel sorry for you.
    MOVE ON and leave R. Kelly alone. Every single one of these HYPOCRITES condemning R.Kelly has a cemetery in his closet but have not been busted yet, and here they are pretending to be Angels.

MONEY .. just be honest, why speak up now? It’s too funny & it doesn’t add up. I understand domestic abuse is a thing, but bro.. the whole time they keep saying “ but no one spoke up, no one says anything? “ why?? Because they are comfortable getting abused as long as it’s profitable to them. Stay woke, everyone gets judged the same through gods eyes. Color doesn’t exist.
