R. Kelly: His Friends Speak
R Kelly grew up from a poor, broken home where he was abused by multiple female family members and experienced extensive trauma before dropping out of high school. Music was a high point in his life and helped him sky-rocket to fame - bringing R&B music to mainstream audiences. Rumours soon began to swirl about his behavior towards underage girls he was mentoring - and over time those rumours began to gain traction with various corroborating accounts and video evidence to back them up. Accused of various underage sexual offenses and operating a sex cult, R Kelly was finally arrested and currently sits in jail awaiting trial. The real question is: how far do R Kelly's sexual assaults go, and can the public continue to enjoy his music with a clean conscience?
