The one thing I have come to realise is for every extremely gifted individual, something has to give in form of ‘paying’ back for the gift given, some natural others inflicted. Steven Hawkins, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Jean Michel Basquiat to name a few. Robert Sylvester Kelly who is also known as R. Kelly is no exception.For years all the allegations lambasted on the pied piper of R&B is pretty much the same which is having been relationships with underage girls.
It is true they say if it walks like a duck and quack like a duck, it probably is a duck. I am not saying everything been said on the media is true about Kells but one thing I do know is, if he does not stop messing with younger women, he will do hard time in prison and the judge will throw every book of the law at him the way they did OJ Simpson.
It was reported yesterday by parents of some young ladies that R. Kelly had brainwashed their daughters and held them against their will hence communication with the family ceased.
He was reported to have abused these girls on occasion like a pimp would.
One of the girls have since come out to debunk the rumours saying R. Kelly did not hold them hostage, she is at Kell’s home because she wants to be there.
I know at the age of 21 nothing will result from this allegation as the parents have no case to fight here but given the dark cloud that have lingered over Mr Kelly for years, people are going to believe anything. I am not saying this to support R. Kelly but Hugh Hefner does the same if not worse at the Playboy Mansion which is ‘okay’. Especially when there is no proof of wrongdoing this time, the story spread so fast simply because of his past.
First it was his relationship with the late great Aaliyah in 1994 when she was just 15 and Kells 28 at the time.
Then it was the alleged tape of R Kelly urinating on the underage niece of soul singer Sparkle, he was acquitted on all 14 charges.
Last year at the age of 50, R Kelly was reported to allegedly dating a 19 year old South Carolina student Halle Calhoun and to explain how uncomfortable I am with this relationship, R Kelly debut album 12 Play, is 3 years older than Ms Calhoun.
Perhaps Mr Kelly is innocent in all of these insinuations but he sure isn’t helping his case.
