Kelly,” Jim De Rogatis, the Sun-Times reporter who, in 2002, received the video that allegedly depicted R.Kelly having sex with an underage girl, and has covered the story with ceaseless tenacity ever since told the Village Voice this year.Clary said her parents encouraged her to make "sexual videos" with Kelly when she was 17 so they could blackmail him.
Kelly has, over the years, tried to cast his marriage to the late Aaliyah as a kind of crazed and innocent affair, even though it was statutory rape.
“Well, because of Aaliyah’s passing, as I’ve always said, out of respect for her mother who’s sick and her father who’s passed, I will never have that conversation with anyone,” he told GQ earlier this year.
But what is truly unforgivable is that while we, the public, know what Kelly is—we have seen it and he continues to rub it in our faces with this latest love affair—we continue to buy his records and watch the TV shows he is in.
In short, we continue to help the record companies make millions for and from this monster.
An additional 12 counts of child pornography were brought against Kelly.
