The past few weeks have been pretty bad for everyone’s favorite creepy uncle, R. Kelly. First, we found out about his No Checkout Time bed and breakfast filled with women he Pied Piper-ed into staying with him. Next, we heard from one of his “captives” who wanted to inform us all that he’s the best man she’s ever known and is STAYYYYIN’! Then, we got an exclusive look behind the curtain of the Wizard of Whiz’s world, even being treated to a story from one of the munchkins who escaped his urine scented Lollipop Guild. And through it all, his fans have been supportive and continued to throw money at him for his current After Party tour. Well, that’s finally come to an end! It seems like common sense is ready to overtake this madness, because a few of his tour dates have been cancelled.
The self-proclaimed “Pied Piper of R&B” (yeah, let that marinate a bit), R. Kelly can’t keep his face off the TMZ homepage these days. Today’s latest story is about a girl who got away. A woman, who was 20 at the time, spoke to TMZ about meeting R. Kelly after she was singled out by “someone in his crew” at a concert last December and given a backstage pass.
A woman who claims to have intimate knowledge of some of the vile shit we’ve been hearing about at the R. Kelly complex has come forward, and she’s given the harrowing details to Jezebel. And she has receipts. Literally. She has the receipts that prove she was there.
It’s never a good sign when R. Kelly’s name is trending online, but yesterday it was really not good. BuzzFeed published a story accusing R. Kelly of living up to his nickname of The Pied Piper of R&B. They claimed he had lured young women into various homes and kept them in what was implied to be R. Kelly’s version of a cult. R. Kelly denied (via his rep) that he was involved in any such sex cult. One of the women with R. Kelly has recently spoken, and she also denies anything R. Kelly-ish is happening.
Last week a shirtless middle-aged dude biked past me happily sing-screaming “Ignition (Remix)” at the top of his lungs, and after I was done marveling at a human living their best life, I began to wonder what R. Kelly had been up to lately. Last we heard, he was getting sued for allegedly wrecking a marriage. As it turns out, R. Kelly has been busy wrecking more than that. Several people have come forward and are alleging that R. Kelly has wrecked their families by luring their daughters into what they’re calling a “cult.” R. Kelly doing not-right shit with young women? How very R. Kelly of him.
R. Kelly, the most dangerous water sport device to happen to kids since the Slip ‘N Slide, has been sued by a deputy sheriff in Jackson, Mississippi for allegedly being the wrecking ball who destroyed his marriage. Kenny Bryant claims that R. Kelly caused him emotional pain and even messed with his money by having an affair with his wife whose name is Asia Childress. The shocking part is that Asia isn’t underage, but she does have the word “child” in her last name.
