and he's still got the Illinois trial in August where he's charged with 10 more counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four more women (three of whom were minors at the time). The case also alleges Kelly produced "child sexual abuse material" and apparently there's video evidence. He's going away for a looooong time. Good riddance.

He's a sick, sick man who needed to be stopped because he wasn't ever going to stop. And also another example of a powerful, depraved man in the industry who was given passes for years just because people liked his work.
R. Kelly was on some next level depravity. I'd heard the Aaliyah marriage stuff back in 6th grade, but this other stuff? Wow.
I'm a big Aaliyah fan and what's crazy is he married her at 14 (had been grooming her since she was 12) only because he thought she was pregnant and in his tiny mind, he thought then he wouldn't get in trouble. But it turned out she wasn't pregnant. It was an STD he'd given her, so he dumped her off at her mother's house (he was sleeping with her mother too, btw). Aaliyah was traumatized but didn't talk about it because she wanted to move on with her life and career. Her family did not protect her just like a lot of these young people's families who like to play dumb now when they knew not to have this man around their children.
