R. Kelly Flies. Right or Wrong?

|

A Chicago jury found the Pied Piper of R&B not guilty on all counts — six years after being charged with making, directing and starring in a child porn video. He faced up to 15 years in prison, but flew out of the courtroom to cheering fans. “I think he is obviously guilty,” said Mark Muro, an attorney who tracked the trial for the VH1 Blog and who was unimpressed with the It-Wasn’t-Him-On-The-Tape defense. Remember the defense attorney’s Little Man theory? Refresher: “They took the head of Marlon Wayans and put it on a midget, and it looked real. Didn’t it?”

Is our lawyer just a sore loser because he did not accurately predict the verdict? Or should R. Kelly be behind bars?

    THIS MAN IS GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY!!!!

    Why can’t anyone see that? this is ludicrous!! if it wasn’t any other “regular” person they would have found this pedophile GUILTY!!

    R. Kelly deserves to be in jail! He has a HISTORY of this behavior?

    Innocent? Hell to the NOO!!

    Stupid justice and system+DUMBASS jury+Loads of money=R. Kelly Set Free

  2. Lulue says:

    This is American justice at it’s finest! A clear example that MONEY may not buy happiness, but it sure does buy freedom. Well until the next tape surfaces or birth certificate is forged…it won’t be long.

  3. mikel riccie says:

    R Kelley is innocent and just the target of some jealous loser prosecutors……..they went to sate b grade law schools and couldnt convict saddam hussein let alone R kelley…LOL

    This was nothing more than a personal vendetta against an famous innocent black man!

    Vote Obama!

    really? Someone told me he is dating a beautiful girl he met through BillionaireCupid.com. Is that true? I think everyone would like to see what their profiles look like.

  10. Chris says:

    Great…another celebrity getting off easy. I don’t want this pedophile roaming the High Schools and
    flashing his blingies to the little girls. Didn’t he marry Aaliyah when she was only 15?

  11. mimmi says:

    This is like O.J. Simpson all over again…..as long as you have fame and fortune you can appearently commit ANY crime without having to worry about the consequences…homicide ,sexual abuse of children…. you name it…It makes me sick!!!

  13. sonya says:

    If the glove doesn’t fit, u must accquit! I knew my baby daddy wasn’t quilty! LOL Did the child parents testify? Michael Jackson was guilty, but alot of people didn’t make such a big fuss over his crazy a**! R. Kelly need to Thank GOD, Live his life& continue to make those hillarious chapters to Trapped in The Closet,Kells Please Don’t ever, ever look at a young girl in any sexual kind of way not even a wink, and contimue to make good music. Can people just leave this man alone!!!

  14. bri says:

    I seen the tape..and I don’t care what anybody says, that WAS HIM!..He probably paid everybody off to keep his nasty azz out of prison!

  15. sally says:

    I viewed many hot videos and photos at ——–Ukinterracialmatch.com ——–the NO.1 free dating club for interracial singles to have fun together in UK. I found there are so many single celebrities and their funs there. Also there are many black and white singles who are serious about love!

  16. angela says:

    I AM SO HAPPY FOR HIM. I HOPE HE KEEP HIS SELF FAR FROM TROUBLE….

  17. angelik says:

    this truly makes me sick that R Kelly was found not guilty. For years now there have been times when he has been involved with minor girls. No matter how you look at it he is a pediophile period and hopefully one day he will finally see his time in jail, becoming bubba’s girlfriend instead.

  18. Nicole says:

    I do think it was him on the tape. But after following the trial pretty closely I think the jury was right in finding him not guilty b/c the state did not do a good enough job of proving their case. Regardless or whether or not he did it , he is a free man today b/c of poor prosecution and also b/c the girl on the video says it’s not her. Her family members do even agree that it’s her. That cant help the state.

  19. Kathy says:

    Does anyone remember how he married Aaliyah when she was only 15? This wouldn’t be the first time he has these disturbing relationships with minors. I can’t believe that the jury was so blind. It seems so simple to get away with things, especially when you are a celebrity. That’s just sad. I agree with Lulue: money buys freedom. These are such serious allegations and he got away with all of it, still recorded and sold millions of albums, and will continue to have his songs on the radio for years and years to come. A rapist celebrity…how sad.

  20. PAT says:

    WHAT I REALLY THINK HES GUILTY OF IS PLAYING WITH GOD,HE THANKED HIM ON ALL COUNTS NOW HE NEED TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH HIM,ROBERT GIVE YOUR LIFE TO GOD AND YOU REALLY WILL BE SET FREE.CHANGE YOUR SURROUNDINGS GET POSITIVE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE BEHIDE YOU THAT YOU CAN TRUST.I KNOW YOU DID THIS, LETS GET HELP AND TRY AND PUT THIS BEHIND US JUST REMEMBER GOD IS FORGIVING !!!!!!!

  21. Kelly says:

    He wasnt guilty from da start who ever made the video was a hater

  22. SACHA says:

    I THINK H3 SHIULD GO TO JAIL FOR A CUPLPE OF YEARS.

  23. yaritza says:

    i saw the video myself and it IS him. with corn rows, an afro, earring, or no earring. this is such bs. he got off on that literally. the justice system really does suck if you couldn’t tell that was him in that video. and what bugged me while watching that pathetic video was how affectionate he was with the youngest girl in the video. when u sit back and really watch it…the other girls he just did it like nothing and with the young girl he was stroking her and touching her gently. cmon now, its sick. the man is sick. and if i’m correct…didn’t forensics say that a mole was visible in that tape?! i rest my case.

  24. DNA HUSDON says:

    R KELLY IS A NASTY MA I CAN’T BELIEVE HE DIDTHAT TO A LITTLE GIRL I THOUGHT HE WAS A GOOD PERSONBUT HE’S NOT HAT’S WHY HE UGLY WITH THAT MESSED UP FACE THAT; PROBABLY WHY HE DOESN’T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND OR A WIFE HES UGLY SELFAND HE VERY VERY DARK

  25. TskTsk says:

    I knew they would find him not guilty. I mean look at OJ and Micheal. Plus without the victim taking the stand,they really didn’t have much to go on.Butsome of the jurors even said it was him on the tape,it’s just they couldn’t prove that the girl was underage.I think they paid her not to testify,otherwise R.Kelly be in jail like he should be. Wonder what his next single or album will be about? xlmaox

  26. shanny says:

    he is guilty he a good men you have my support down here in va kelly.

  27. LQQKER says:

    I knew the issue of race was going to be posted in here somewheres. A black man can lie just as good as a white man. Have you forgotten Michael Vick denying connection with the dog fighting ring ? Wasn’t until his own family members turned against him that he somewhat started to tell the truth. What about the young girl ? Does it bother you at all that her life was put in the spot light of the media ? This is a man with a past history of being with under aged girls, what will prove is guilt to you ? Him doing it to your daughters ?

    I hope he stays a “HAS BEEN”

  28. Hollywoodhatter says:

    This man will never be a has been he is the best of our era- You just have seperate the music from his life . jigga ,kelly not guilty just like the song say — put it like tis let God juge him not man. thats life–So keeo maken that great music Black man

  29. Artie Griffin says:

    I have a question. Each time a black man is found not guilty, there must be something wrong. When in fact there is 95% conviction rate against black men in the county. Even when some of them have be proven innocent, by DNA. Yes, it is about his prdiction. I hope it wasn’t other factors in his decision making. This applies if he was a black Man…Remember, blacks was used to catch runner-ways. Another example, the movie star and music director who kill their wife and “girlfriend”. No one questioned their innocense to any degree of media concern. Finally, there’s O.J., God forbid if evidence ever show he was innocent. How does Armerica ever repay that debts?

  30. lets talk about it says:

    This is For Artie Griffin———————– Your statement is very bias and racial. The national statistics show that there are 6% more white rapist and sex offenders in the U.S. then African American. GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT. Also, regardless of a defenders race, the prosecutor has a obligation to the alleged victim, to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, if the accussed in fact committed the said crime. THIS IS CALLED AMERICAN JUSTICE.
    Although I do believe that R.Kelly was the perp, in the video. He was found not guilty by a jury of his peers. Iam glad that you were not one of them. Everything in this world is not black or white.
    GIVE THE PREJUDICE B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T. A REST.

  31. MISSY says:

    Wonder why it is, that when a black man gets accused of a crime, he is automaticly guilty.
    But when a white man does the crime,,he was either,,bi-polar,,,or abused as a child.
    Money has nothing to do with it. If the facts are not concluded, against a person, they SHOULD be aquitted.
    All of you who say that R Kelly needs to be put in jail,,were not there when the alleged crime took place. I too saw the video,,,,No one could see the mans face, so how can you say it was him? There are thousands of innocent people in prison, because of close minded people.
    There have also been many people who have been murdered by the death penalty, that were later found to not have been the guity person.
    We have to watch how we condem our fellow man. If the court had enough evidence, money or not,, R.Kelly would have gone to jail. So can everyone stop the whinning, and find someone else to point your fingers at. Example—– Martha Stewart,,,,had money,,her azz went to jail , didnt she?

  32. Peechez says:

    Black, white or other. Child molesters should go to jail. I believe it is money not race that determines how well our defense is against prosecution, but be that as it may, I’m sorry that the prosecution did not have enough evidence to prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I’m sorry that a man’s musical career is placed above the value of a young woman–many young women– being abused. I’m sorry that R.Kelly is not man enough to own up to his wrong. And all I can offer is a prayer for healing for the girls he has victimized; for him to find true repentance and for a culture that has made idols of sex and money.

  33. PLUM says:

    This is so stupid. The verdict is already decided, if any of you racist bastards have something to say and think that he should be behind bars, it doesn’t really matter. He was found not-guilty so get over it!!!!!

  34. bessie says:

    strange.
    This guy has posted his personal ad to a celebrities dating site for several months. That site called ‘searc hingmillionaire*c om’. I just visited his profile page yesterday seems he is a certified millionaire there.

  35. CCJS says:

    Wow, I can’t believe a lot of what I’m reading. This really has something to do with race? Funny, I thought it had to do with an alleged child molester…my bad!

    R. Kelly was found “not guilty” (notice how that’s not the same thing as innocent) by a jury of his peers. Therefore, it doesn’t matter what ANY of us think. Same thing with OJ, Michael Jackson, and the officers involved in the Rodney King beating. The verdict resulted in the same “freedom” for each of these men…meaning that a large part of the country still thinks they’re guilty. But, the jury did not convict them. End of story. So, stop whining about it.

    As for saying that Black defendants not being convicted is somehow justified because of our country’s history of slavery…how does that make sense? An entire race of people was subjegated for years. A tragic stain on our nation’s past. How does any criminal, regardless of race, going free negate that fact? How does that make up for slavery? That argument I just can’t understand.

    Bottom line, congrats to R. Kelly’s defense, who clearly argued their case well. Agree or disagree, it’s done.

  36. steveislove says:

    I fell those prosecuters should be fired and barred from doing law because as a regular person I woul have put on a better case. They did not evem put the girl on the stand which is why the jury let R. Kelly off the hook. The jury had nothing to compare to when looking at the film of the girl. There are more but that was the most compelling evidence. I feel ashamed of you fans that stil cheer for this man and buy his records. If he was not famous you would have condemned him and that is such a pitiful thing but it is true.

  37. Jen Guard says:

    R Kelly is still the same pedophile that he has been. It is outrageous that a jury would acquit him. Why is there no mistrial when , during deliberations, jurists sent notes out to the judge asking to just get out of this and to be sent home. It is obvious that, once again, the justice system has failed us. It is sad that people are so selfish that they couldn’t be bothered to take the trial seriously and put aside their personal issues long enough to take care of the issue at hand. So watch out kids, he’s still on the streets doing what he pleases, ready to teach runaways and children all about kinky demeaning sex. Congrats, legal system another criminal walks free.

  38. Cassandra says:

    R Kelly did commit this act. Regardless of what anyone thinks. Why do you think the girl never took the stand? Because R Kelly has money and power. You put money and power together, you can get a way with a lot. Yeah, he can have whatever women he wants, but sometimes, it’s not women they want. Hence the part of “child molester”. OJ had money, and power, and we ALL know he did it. It just goes to show that our judical system has some major issues. I’m sure if R Kelly wasn’t big and famous, he would have been found guilty. Just like that thing with Kobe. Why do you think it took over 6 years to have this move to trial? 6 years, witnesses move, memories fade, stories change, it was a lot of paperwork to get this continued and continued. And the whole mole thing on his back, he has money, he could have gotten it removed, and paid the doctor off to not say anything. I think sometimes people forget, that in some cases, money does buy everything, including freedom. You put either a white/black male on the stand for this crime, they would have been convicted. It’s not a question of race, so for you that think that, you might want to rethink that. As far as I’m concerned, blaming it on race, is the most dumbest thing I’ve heard. Seriously, slavery has been done and over with for YEARS now, so MOVE on. How many of you actually followed this case when it went to trial? He might have got off this one time, but there will come a time, when he doesn’t..

  39. Rhajah says:

    kells is the man!! he is obviously blessed beyond anyones knowing when you have a backup plan like the lord, theres no mortal that can bring u down . if he in fact engaged in an illicit act, who r we to judge? he answers to only one judge and juror and his name is christ. so, to you kells i say, blessed b u r finally free!!!!!!!!

  40. v says:

    anyone who saw that video knows hes a pedophile. I guess if Jeffrey Dahmer made good music he’d have gotten away too.

  41. missie says:

    dis whole thing is stupid because the female wasn’t on the tape sayin no r stop. she aint say nuttin she just wanted to get some money. she wanted to get f****d. know rkelly is free get off his d*** lol

  42. rod samkange says:

    When a black man makes it a lot of flies try to contaminate his food .Well KELLS been yor avid fan since song from dry dust wrang in chance. NOT GONNA stop now dog.

  43. dorothy says:

    This is your girl Dorothy.
    With the verdict of not guilty booming out. We the people have lost our way. When is it alright for anyone man or woman to become sexually involed in having sex with a minor? what pleasure can anyone get from it? It’s a shame that when your in hollywood you have the power to say f**k the law and i can do what i want. From drunk driving to drivinng with your child in your lap to being pulled over while having all types of drugs in your car. Is this a hollywood thing? Everyday people like myself who work hard taking care of our families trying to make it, we have no chance and it’s not fair. So being one of the GREATEST singers of all time it does not give you a pass to make porn videos of OUR CHILDREN. I can say with honesty i am a R.kelly fan i love his music his style with his swagger the man is no doubt a icon. but just because he’s R. kelly don’t let that cloud up your heart and mind and blind you to the fact of telling him it’s alright to do this to our children. Remember no one is above the law and intil we as people stand up it won’t stop. if you want to keep buying his music thats fine,but let it become known that our children come first.

  44. stiphanie williams says:

    well r. kelly sure isn’t setting any good examples for our young men I thought you were better than that. why you are singing step in the name of love you should be telling them young girls just that. you need to repent and ask god to remove all bad things from your mind as well as your heart you be blessed.

  45. nikki says:

    first of i would like to state that i feel that r kelly is not guilt and that was proven. giving that fact i feel that if the courts couln’t convict him then why are you continuing to convict him. i feel taht this man should not be the only one held responsible for this . first off these girls are no better . also, this is real life if he wasn’t an artist would you all be constantly dogging him. no, cause he is not the only one that is sleeping with underage girls and also these girls are the ones that are sleeping with these man and then getting mad because they are degrated i feel that if you put yourself in situations where you are down grading yourself then you should not feel bad that the same people that you put yourself in that situation get off on it.

  46. Swarakul Robinson says:

    I LOVE R KELLY…. I JUST WANT HIM TO KNOW THAT GOD LOVES HIM…. he is human just like the rest of us. I know this 0ne thing, if GOD GIVE ME A CHANCE TO MEET THE R, THE REST IS HISTORY!!!!!

  49. Wow!, this was a top quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to achieve anything
