Free R KELLY
This is so bad only a black man can get this type of jail time so sad.
God will get the glory when it is all said and done because He is letting the truth come to light. I am believing that R Kelly is going to come out of this and produce a gospel album that will be out of this world that will bring many to Christ. Genesis 15:20 "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." If you want to come into agreement with this prayer, hit the like button.
IT'S A SHAME HOW A LOT WHO DO NOT KNOW THE TRUTH THIS GUY IS A STALKER, ASK HIM WHY HE DIDN'T TAKE THE STAND. STOP LYING AND WHY CBS ISN'T REPORTING THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON... ALL OF THE LIES THE WITNESSES ARE LYING.
14. 15? Which one it is?
This guy is an opportunists.....with funky journalism career.
All this Man did was have sex with several women that gave it to him, people need to stop saying they were under age, they were all grown,(18 and over) and they were all thieves with records that robbed the man blind, as if Women don't steal. They go on TV with a show were lifetime knew they were lying and you slow people couldn't read between the lines. Go do a story on Elvis Presley and the girl the groomed at 14 and married but you don't want to talk about that. He has not been 55 all his life, he was a young man and all the women were after him and his money and I see they stole it all , men you better put a camera in every room, women steal too.
I really don't understand why the parents didn't come out earlier in 2008 when she was 14yrs of age,why they didn't have BCW go after him and arrest him while he was pursuing bad things to this young girl;my main question is why the the PARENTS DIDN'T REPORT HIM?WHY DID THEY TAKE HIS MONEY&LET HIM TREAT THIS GIRL 🤔 IN THAT TYPE OF WAY?DID HER PARENTS REALLY AGREE TO HIS BEHAVIOR BECAUSE OF MONEY THEY WERE GETTING FROM R.KELLY?WHY HAVEN'T ALL OF PARENTS BEEN PUT TO FAULT?WHY IS EVERYTHING PUT ON R.KELLY not saying that he isn't wrong for what he has done to these girls but right is right n wrong is wrong n at the end of the day both sides are wrong the parents are wrong for not standing up for their children no matter the money they were gettingor receiving,the cars,the jewelry, the fashion etc etc and R.KELLY is Definitely wrong as a man to do any young girl in that matter.But remember he also needed help himself back in the days himself because of molestation happening to him as a kid that was never given to him.
Free that artist
Let him alone
Wtf let this man go out of the prison
Shame, lets get everybody involved even the jurors at that time, why now does all have to say.
His in it to ge his money and obviously so is she and her family come on
Jonny depth got his trail let the truth out sick people
Many of the world's leaders such as politicians have caused more harm than good but justice hasn't been served. I wished justice applied to all regardless of race, tribe, nationality or social and encomic status. Unfortunately, even judges end up being bribed and that affects the Law.
Let him go, Mayor Lightfoot will rehabilitate R Kelly
🎙R Kelley is without question one of the most gifted and talented writers, producers, singers, entertainers of our time. He’s “jump started” and resurrected the careers of many of the artists we enjoy today. He’s created award winning music that many of us Jam in our car to, line danced at house parties, office parties, block parties, Family reunions, weddings, and of course, bump & grind in the bed room! I personally know a couple of kids who were born with the help of a blazing R Kelly slow jam. I’ve even sat in church and have been inspired while watching the “Praise Dancers” stepping for the King to “Kells”! Amazingly and by the grace of God, R Kelly has accomplished all of these things without the ability to read or write... “To God Be The Glory”!! But wait.... “News Flash” 📰
🗣Robert Sylvester Kelly
AKA (self proclaimed)“The Pied Piper”, and fabulous entertainer, is also... a sick bully, con artist, “CHILD PREDATOR” and child support dodger! This proven truth is not a rumor, “Fake News” or random, hear say. This disgusting, hurtful, disappointing, “hard to believe” truth (for some), is a well documented, court proven FACT! Now what? 🤔He still gets a pass? 🤨Really? 🥴Why? Nope, he doesn’t have the support you apparently think he does. Although there are still “Kelly sympathizers” and victim shammers out there, he is exactly where he belongs and I’ll bet he wishes he could fly!
🤔Knowing all we’ve come to learn about R Kelly is he STILL worthy of your admiration and financial support? Why🥴? Would your opinion be the same if R Kelly was the tall, talented, and handsome, high school janitor or bus driver?
R Kelly is “done”? I truly hope and pray he is finished. I pray he’s FINISHED, Manipulating the minds of minors. I hope R. Kelly is done molesting our young daughters! I hope R. Kelly is done being able to buy his freedom. A freedom that would otherwise have been sure incarceration, decades ago,for the average proven Predator.
The sexually abused and wrongfully accused women and girls are finally going to get some justice, instead of being victim shamed by R. Kelly’s cult of foolish followers! “Rejoice in his down fall”? No, rejoice in the Prodigal Son, who by God’s Grace and Mercy, just might find his way home. Let’s pray and rejoice in the real opportunity R Kelly will have to spend his incarceration, in deep prayer, fasting and meditation while repenting and atoning. Rejoice in the opportunity he’ll have to spend time learning to read and write and perhaps compose letters of apologies to his victims and loyal fans. Many of whom shamelessly “victim shamed” the accusers. Rejoice in R Kelly honoring his parental responsibilities and pay that child support... all of it! Rejoice in Brother R. Kelly getting help for his addictions, his overall rehabilitation, and ultimately, his release from the prison bars but also the prison of his lost mind, body and soul. Let’s rejoice in our forgiveness of this brother when he returns a Born Again Man. Lastly, make Damn sure he's registered accordingly... as a "SEX OFFENDER"!
Amen! I hope Robert Sylvester Kelly, prays, repents, atones, and is finally “FREE”. I pray he gets the help he needs, to address the unresolved issues of being manipulated and violated as a child. Liberate Robert from the prison of his past that made him the child predator he is today! Yes... “Free R. Kelly”!
What is totally vile back then is that VHS copy of R Kelly raping and peeing on children was literally been sold on the streets like any other cassette of bootleg movies and it was not only common knowledge but the source of kudos for Kelly for been a 'playa' or jokes galore about Kelly ,pee ect ect.. It was everywhere and nobody was actually outraged.! ...Personally I was young but growing up in the UK where half the ppl we liked on TV as kids turned out to be monsters and been a huge ex fan of Michael jackson I was old enough to see how phony it was the way ppl give a 'pass' to a rapist or peadophile if they could sing and dance good, made you laugh or were great at a sport..It's kinda vile how ppl will just ignore the worst of human behaviour....And it's no better today ppl will defend Kelly like they do for Jackson ...But if 'a guy down the street' had the same accusations ,charges and pay offs for the same crimes ..Or told you at 45 yrs old he spent last night having a 'sleepover' with a 12yr old boy No way would you be cool with that lol..
I wish someone would explain why this is not double jeopardy. I also want to know why no one else is being prosecuted for these crimes. So many people were involved in R Kelly getting away with this abuse for so long. The R Kelly situation also shows how often justice can be bought. When R Kelly was powerful and had money, he got a pass even with video evidence. Now he is broke and suddenly the government is disgusted by his actions. R Kelly should have been stopped decades ago. It's just all such a ridiculous situation.
