Man, R. Kelly is out here being triflin’ again … allegedly.
The Pied Piper is being accused of having a sex cult in which he holds women against their will, gives them a list of rules to follow and physically punishes them for insubordination. He tapes their sexapades, dictates when they eat, bathe and use the restroom, and completely brainwashes them.
The stories all seemingly start the same way. Young women (some as young as 17!!), aspiring to be singers, meet R. Kelly at a concert or studio. Kelly offers his services as a mentor and the women think that have hit a major break. In a few cases, the parents were also there during the meeting and gave the green light for Robert to help their young daughters. But, soon after, things take a turn for the worse. The young ladies all end up meeting with Kels and never returning to their parents. They send sporadic message claiming to be OK, but it is evident things are far from “OK”.
In one case, a mother became a detective of sorts in an effort to find her 19-year-old daughter. And while she found out the truth about Kelly’s palace of inappropriate behavior, nothing could be done by the police because she is of legal age. She hasn’t seen her daughter since December 2016 and when she did, this is how she described her.
“It was as if she was brainwashed. [She] looked like a prisoner — it was horrible,” she said. “I hugged her and hugged her. But she just kept saying she’s in love and [Kelly] is the one who cares for her. I don’t know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening.”
Three women who were former members of R’s entourage spoke to Buzzfeed about the bizarre behavior they witness from the Grammy-winning singer. Read the full story here.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
