In 1995, when he was 27, he briefly married the late singer Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time (in Surviving R. Kelly an executive who formerly worked with the singer says he forged Aaliyah's birth date on the marriage license to say she was 18, and another witness says she saw Kelly and Aaliyah having sex).
Kelly, who has been dogged by allegations of sexual impropriety for two decades, has not been charged with any crimes since he was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008. Mason allegedly threatened to kill Joycelyn Savage father. Clearly unhappy with his business partner choosing to continue a working relationship with Kelly, Dash said that was the moment he knew "Roc-A-Fella was defunct".
Investigators and lawyers in at least two states are seeking more information about allegations against R. Kelly, after a new documentary series reignited interest in reports of the R&B singer's alleged sexual misconduct and other illicit behavior. "I am here today to encourage victims of sexual assault or domestic violence related to these allegations to please get in touch with our office".
"It's my m--f-ing birthday and I don't give a f- what's going on tonight", he said to a cheering crowd in an Instagram video that was captured by the likes of The Blast and Hollywood Unlocked. The case stems from past year, when an anonymous woman claimed Kelly gave her an STI and held her captive as a sex slave in 2017.
"No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said.
Another woman, who was born in Chicago but has since moved to Detroit, said that her incident with Kelly happened while at her grandmother's house on the South Side in the mid-'80s.
Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called on alleged victims of R. Kelly to come forward at a media conference Tuesday.
We're told Kelly is over $80,000 in arrears, and an eviction lawsuit was filed against him in July by the owner of the building, Midwest Commercial Funding. Some even opened up about "new allegations about his sexual, mental, and physical abuse", as Lifetime boasted on their site.
