Scandal have rocked R.Kelly’s career since the early 90’s after being accused of having more than just a fondness for under-aged girls, Kelly was later indicted on child sexual assault charges and was ultimately acquitted but it seems that The Chicago Times and music journalist Jim DeRogatis is looking to once again stir the pot by posting a new article about the explosive allegations against the R&B legend exposing new details surrounding the many sexual assault claims against him from multiple women over the years.
Check out some of the article below and also listen to R.Kelly’s new interview with ATL’s V103 in which he gives his thoughts on the controversy…
“I think in the history of rock & roll, rock-music or pop-culture people misbehaving and behaving badly sexually with young women, rare is the amount of evidence compiled against anyone apart from R. Kelly,” says DeRogatis, who, in 2002, received a video in the mail that allegedly depicted R. Kelly having sex with an underage girl. “Dozens of girls — not one, not two, dozens — with harrowing lawsuits.
The videotapes — and not just one videotape, numerous videotapes. And not Tommy Lee/Pam Anderson, Kardashian fun video. You watch the video for which he was indicted and there is the disembodied look of the rape victim. He orders her to call him Daddy. He urinates in her mouth and instructs her at great length on how to position herself to receive his ‘gift.’ It’s a rape that you’re watching. So we’re not talking about rock-star misbehavior, which men or women can do. We’re talking about predatory behavior. Their lives were ruined.” (Spin)
