Surviving R. Kelly turned the nation the wrong way up. Old mates, collaborators, colleagues, and friends have rebuked R. Kelly for the reason that documentary dropped. Although the person’s music catalog is not up for debate, his historical past manipulating and sexually seducing younger ladies is inexcusable. What makes the accusations even worse is the incontrovertible fact that the media has been poking enjoyable at Kelly’s alleged tendencies for many years. Huey from The Boondocks mentioned it the very best (shout out Regina King).
On Friday (January 11), one R. Kelly’s attorneys, Steve Greenberg, was interviewed by the Associate Press. He claimed that his shopper denies all allegations sexual misconduct involving ladies and underage ladies. Kelly is even denying all of the allegations from the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series, though neither Kells or his lawyer have watched all the film. “The allegations aren’t true as a result of he by no means knowingly had intercourse with an underage lady, he by no means compelled anybody to do something, he by no means held anybody captive, he by no means abused anybody,” acknowledged Greenberg.“Now, some producer went working round and solicited all these folks, did a Jerry Springer-esque present and there’s all this uproar. It’s disgusting.” Greenberg is utilizing an identical argument as different attorneys who’ve defended shoppers within the current wave the #MeToo motion. He is questioning the credibility the ladies, the timing the complaints, and the very fact probably the most these accusers by no means notified police and even complained.
