Jim DeRogatis tells The Village Voice
The [accusations] were stomach churning. The one young woman, who had been 14 or 15 when R. Kelly began a relationship with her, detailed in great length, in her affidavits, a sexual relationship that began at Kenwood Academy: He would go back in the early years of his success and go to Lina McLin’s gospel choir class. She’s a legend in Chicago, gospel royalty. He would go to her sophomore class and hook up with girls afterward and have sex with them. Sometimes buy them a pair of sneakers. Sometimes just letting them hang out in his presence in the recording studio. She detailed the sexual relationship that she was scarred by. It lasted about one and a half to two years, and then he dumped her and she slit her wrists, tried to kill herself. Other girls were involved. She recruited other girls. He picked up other girls and made them all have sex together. A level of specificity that was pretty disgusting.
And there was a young woman who was pressured into an abortion?
That he paid for. There was a young woman that he picked up on the evening of her prom. The relationship lasted a year and a half or two years. Impregnated her, paid for her abortion, had his goons drive her. None of which she wanted. She sued him.
Here is what R Kelly said response:
“Well I feel like I got the football man, and I’m running towards the touchdown and if I stop and look back or mess around, I’ll get tackled,” he explained.
“When you get on top of anything, it’s very windy,” he continued. “It’s about holding your balance once you get up there…Spiritually, I’m a climber.”
He went to direct any naysayers, haters and everything in between to the last record on his new project, perfectly titled “Shut Up.”
“I’m just thankful I can go anywhere musically, any genre I want to go to, I can do that,” he said of his 12th studio album. “R&B is my home, my mansion. I’m in my living room right now, metaphorically. It feels good. I can always go home.”
now she tells it. why didn’t she expose back when he was having sex with him? I don’t get these women that have sex with a man for years and know that it is wrong,even at the age of 15, you know you wrong, now you want to tell it. he didn,t rape yall,so let it go and try to teach your girls not to do what you did.
