It's Over For R'Kelly

One of the world's biggest most recognized stars has now been charged with racketeering and child sex abuse which stem for decades! Once dubbed the King of RNB it has been rumored for several years that he has a preference for underage girls. One of his most notable relationships was with the late RNB singer Aaliyah (1979- 2001) who he married when she was 15 while he was 27 years old. Kelly was also widely known as ‘the RNB’, following years of ongoing sexual abuse allegations against him. It is shocking to note how long a man of great power and fame was able to continue to abuse young women in his position before his September 2021 prosecution. Also in 2002, Kelly was charged with child pornography with one girl. It took 6 years to get to trial. The trial fell apart and Kelly was acquitted. Between 2002 and 2004 Kelly was charged with a further 12 counts of making child pornography in Florida, where he was arrested at his holiday home. Channel 4 and Netflix released a documentary titled ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ in 2019 which interviewed a number of his alleged survivors. It was alleged that R. Kelly would target very young girls especially those with aspirations to be singers. "Federal prosecutors charged Kelly in July 2019 with child pornography and obstruction charges, with that trial delayed due to the pandemic and to allow the New York case to proceed". Jurors in a New York federal court heard from multiple witnesses over the week-long trial of behavior by the singer, with a common theme of Kelly using his fame and power to subject his victims to sexual and physical abuse. He was found guilty of racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child, and kidnapping. Kelly’s sentencing hearing is set for May 4th, 2022. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/sep/27/r-kelly-sex-trafficking-trial-key-testimony
