    • +Running Even if the government’s evidence doesn’t prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt? Or is that old-fashioned?

  1. It’s like watching slime talking about Slime why is this fake lawyer still around is and I going to be indicted himself

  2. It’s kinda strange how this is the same lawyer that Stormy Daniels has. Never heard of him until then, now he’s taking on all the pedos. I wanna say Good for him but it seems kinda weird that he’s the “it” guy all of a sudden. Having said that, it’s way past time for R. Kelly to pay for his crimes. May he get peed on & violated much worse!

  3. I’m happy they was able to finally get Kelly for the sexual acts he committed to the females in this case.. He deserves it!! 💯But I’m hoping ya have the same energy with the Harvey weinsten case🤞🏾. Ya got Bill andKells. Still missing harvey and spacey

    • He doing this to clean his name he the lawyer has accusations against him and using stormy Daniels

    • @ datboy wyse.. how many times did you fight for BLK men who got killed by racist police…but you Wii come on here and talk about r Kelly and not say a word about police killing black men for fun..

      By botch

    • +soul sista#2 I fully understand sista💯 unfortunately we’re well aware on that matter.. But i wanted to not digress from the fact it’s about sexual harrasment and rape charges.. My intent was to come across sensible not ignorant.. ✊🏾🤙🏾❤️

    • +Zaxia Queen yesss…. queen come through….. complexion for protection!!!! I like that👍🏾

  4. While all y’all saying lock him up and other things strange how they after all the African American celebrities but never their own o must have we forget about Harvey Weinstein Matt Lowry and the list goes on and on but them say folks are putting that R Kelly energy into taking down their own and tearing down their own. So you guys go ahead and do their work for them all the while their very own go free

    • Again how are these cases the same? R.KELLY gets to b free for 30yrs B4 conviction, these kids parents sold their kids, Weinstein was arrested right after he was accused and they were not minors! It’s sad that so many ppl are standing up for a pedophile, just goes to show how many wud sell their kids if the price was right$$

  5. It’s funny how women go after these guys & then wanna blame you later for stuff smh it’s a money world

    • Katoria Queendom but they was young once they knew what they was getting into new but now they wanna say he did this & that idk but both of them are wrong

    • +PurpleHaze 420 please dont ever bring children in to the world if u think these teens are in the wrong. They are victims damnit

    • RUBY RIZZLE He has been carrying around this predator title for some time now both he and those young women parents are responsible. Why the hell knowing he has a reputation of being a predator why would you have your child have dealings with him fame or not

  6. R. kelly Trial about to be the 2019 version of O.J. simpson trial and black people going to see mee too movement and gloria allured targeting just black celeberties and going to aquit R. kelly again watch and see the trial is going to be in cook county rember that.

  7. When a famous black man wins a trial people will always claim it was either the jury was “racist” or he paid people off, the logic here being that the justice system only works when it convicts a black man and it was never intended to prove innocent.
