After Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly series aired, many people rightfully felt discomfort whenever Aaliyah’s “Age Ain’t Nothin’ But A Number” came on the radio. It was written by R. Kelly during his relationship with the songbird when she was only 15 years old. Sadly, Aaliyah tragically perished in 2001 when her plane crashed in the Bahamas.
Now, the broke Bump N’ Grinder is currently dealing with his former attorney, Lisa D’Amico. D’Amico is demanding payment for $12,000 in legal fees still owed to her for her work on Kelly’s defense. A month earlier, she withdrew her representation of the famous singer whose video of himself using a young girl as a toilet was circulated online years before the current charges were filed.
Throughout his career as a singer, Kelly brazenly produced music with lyrics about his sexual attraction to – and misdeeds with – children.
Kelly’s predatory behavior was an open secret in the industry for years before prosecutors filed formal charges. This brings to mind the now sullied reputations of Hollywood powerhouses Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and Kevin Spacey. The well-known heavy-hitters engaged in sexually abusive conduct and subsequent intimidation of their victims for decades before being exposed.
Another alleged predator accused of using brainwashing and intimidation methods to keep his sexual victims quiet and compliant, Kelly is currently in jail on federal child pornography and witness tampering charges as of 10/22/2019.
No, R. Kelly – an interview with Chris will not get you $350k either – you will have to find another way to pay Lisa D’Amico back.
Do you still believe you can fly, jailbird? Don’t try to touch the sky, there’s barbed wire protecting you from our children, now.
