    Sparkle is complaining about her niece being with Robert - but her niece's parents aren't saying anything. Even her brother says it's not his niece in the video. Her family has turned against her because of this. If she's so set aback by all of this - why does she have Robert's gifts/talents over her shoulder - seems she wouldn't want that poster anywhere near her. Sorry, I call bullshyt on this, Martin - and yes, I'm still going to listen to his music and support him - per my right.

    Sparkle is full of shit because if there was any truth to this, the allegations would have surfaced early on. Sparkle ass is broke just like the rest of these crumb snatches and these people is trying to get money out of Kelly. Sparkle take your tired broke ass somewhere and lie on a white man. I bet you lying ass people ain't going to lie on the white man.

  • Deshunta Gissentanner

    She is a liar she left her husband to be with Rkelly and when she had him and he made a sex tape with her much younger niece she decided to extort him for money gambling with her career and got played in my opinion

    You can show proof on film what a person has done are doing and people would still be in denial of what wrong they are seeing they can watch a film of a man stabbing a women they would say he is not stabbing her the man who was stabbing her would say O I was not stabbing her that's not me or the women is not a women but something else but by looking at the film we know it's a women the jury would believe the man even tho they see it's a woman being stab.This is sort of what happened in the R Kelly trial .

    This has nothing to do with black or white wrong is wrong where it's Jerry Lee Lewis or R Kelly ,and the R Kelly fans that know R Kelly did this thing and keep buying his recorded selling out his concerts are apart of what he does they are fueling his bank account for him to molest young girls and to move their families to other parts of the world so they can t complain R Kelly fans are giving him this power .STOP SUPPORTING THIS PHEDOPHILE!

    Da supadupa glad to see you agree but let us not fall under excuses this family the Kelly’s should have gotten medical and psychological help long time ago. He’s a smart man full of manipulation knows how to convince women to believe the words that comes from his mouth. The devil he has become this is pitiful and inexcusable

    People making everything about ‘race’. So many ‘racists’. When white prostitutes are raped or murdered by cops, it’s no big thing. A Latina cop in CA raped over 35 prostitutes no one made a big deal. A black highly decorated cop raped dozens of prostitutes in Alaska, no big deal. These cases were 2011-13. When a white cop raped 12 addicts/prostitutes it was huge news. Most here likely know the case. Just a few months ago, a young white prostitute who was likely being raped by a cop and defended herself, was shot 8 times inside the detectives vehicle, are you even aware? Had she been black I am certain you would. Instead of caring most about ‘race’ what should happen is a focus on abuse of power regardless of ethnicity. But people are dedicated to racism not justice.

  • Eyes open wide
    Eyes open wide Month ago

    No one saw?? If abuses were happening people were aware yet did nothing. Too busy trying to get famous. Fame didn’t come so you’re gonna just now raise a stink. ALL OF YOU ARE TRASH. NONE OF THESE FAME CHASERS ARE ANY BETTER THAN R KELLY. Of course sparkle has an upcoming release she is promoting. The metoo movement is a mockery. Same with times up, the women’s march, and this crap. No moral high ground. Hypocrites. Gaga included.

    The question wasn't about if it was RKelly. It was who the was and her age. Without that information there was no case. RKELLY AIN'T S**T. This isn't about black men it's about Pedophilia "PERIOD". There is no way u can twist and turn this n2 anything other. The man is a known child molester. People can try to down play this mess all they want to. Lock his SICK ASS UP.

    The parents were very afraid of the out come if they had just went on and told the truth. The back lash was gonna be awful for the entire family. They felt like they had to lie. The outcome could have been deadly for them. They took the wicked way out. Smh Truth be told.

    Roland nailed it. Roland knows the truth and so does most of us know the age group of our race as black people, but unfortunately the parents didn't want CPS to take there children. The parents are clearly unfit parents who sold there souls and the young daughter for$$$$.

This is just sad she is still exploiting her nieces trauma for self promotion. I wouldn't talk to her either.

    All i want to kno is why is Sparkel comimg out now when she didnt hit it big back then and now she coming out saying this?? To me sounds like she wants attention because she finally has a new album coming out now. Sparkel new that he married A.. She was around him alot more then she puts on especially sense she had songs with him. I wonder if she wanted to bring her neice to him to get him to help her. Then when she went to the law heade sure she wouldnt be abke to put more songs ouy now. Everything happen at the same time. She wanted to be an artist and got mad wjen R. Kelly wouldnt so it after he got word she was gonna turn him in...
    I also wonder tho if R.kelly got A killed. She wanted the marriage to be anulled and he didnt so he fucked the airplane up and it killed her.

    Roland you missed asking probably the only question and response we wanted to hear, which was, if Sparkle knew about Aaliyah why would you bring your niece around R Kelly.? She knew he was messed up. That’s why she kept her eyes on her niece while she was recording. You better be careful what you say Sparkle. It’s turning around on you.

    Where is Aaliyah's mother in all this? I know she spoke out about "Surviving R. Kelly" and said she did not believe the accusers. But just a few days later R. Kelly's lawyer said that Aaliyah was "in the wrong" because she is the one who "lied about her age" so they could get married. The subtext of that is R. Kelly and his people just called Aaliyah a "slutty" girl who came after him and trapped him. Why does Aaliyah's mom not care about that? The survivors are not tarnishing Aaliyah's reputation. R. Kelly and his people are, by essentially blaming the victims, most of whom, including Aaliyah, were CHILDREN at the time!
