Musician R. Kelly has a history of hooking up with young girls – this was common knowledge, especially within the music industry.
But now, everyone is talking about the new Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which details these allegations further. Suddenly, musicians and entertainment companies who have been working with him for decades are rushing to disavow him.
Why didn’t they do that years ago?
R. Kelly married a fifteen-year-old Aaliyah when he was twenty-seven. He was her mentor and producer of her debut album when she was only fourteen.
And there have been many other accusations.
I can’t comprehend why these celebrities were silent with it for all those years, but now seem to be extremely concerned by the fact he impregnated a seventeen-year-old in 2002. It’s a bit of a delayed response, isn’t it?
