Scared and Abused

When reports of R. Kelly running a cult rang through the Hip Hop-sphere, reactions were mixed to say the least. While some wrote the stories off as fake news, it became harder and harder for people to ignore as allegations kept emerging.

R. Kelly has had a bit of a questionable past regardless of these particular rumors. Ever since the R&B megastar married 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994, people have kept an eye on him… and his preference for underage girls. By the early 2000s, R. Kelly had gone through several public scandals, and in 2002 the full extent of his alleged illegal activities with minors came to light.

In February of 2002, reporter and Chicago Sun-Times music critic Jim DeRogatis got ahold of a 26-minute video from an anonymous source that allegedly showed Kelly engaging in illicit acts with a young girl. The most notable section featured the “Ignition” singer asking the 14-year-old to call him “daddy” and urinating in her mouth.

The video was released six years after Tiffany Hawkins, an aspiring singer, began a $10 million lawsuit against Kelly. Hawkins — who allegedly began a sexual relationship with the singer when she was just 15 years old — claimed that she “suffered personal injuries and severe emotional harm because she had sex with the singer and he encouraged her to participate in group sex with him and other underage girls.”

Regardless of his alleged indiscretions, his fans stayed dedicated, putting his 2010 album Love Letter on the US Billboard 200.

Now that another woman — R. Kelly’s ex girlfriend and now-famous DJ Kitti Jones — has come forward with even more heart-breaking allegations of abuse and neglect suffered at the hands of Kelly, will his fans still stand by him?
