Old R. Kelly Sex Tape Joke From Fabolous on Twitter Re-Surfaces

Old R. Kelly Sex Tape Joke From Fabolous on Twitter Re-Surfaces

Conway was once the basketball coach of the young Oak Park girl who allegedly appears in the infamous sex tape that almost sent Kelly to jail. Let us know your reaction to Surviving R. Kelly in the comments (below).

The accusations were made in Lifetime's six-part docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, which featured interviews with several women claiming that they were subjects of abuse and predatory behavior, while other interviewees claimed to have witnessed inappropriate behavior between him and his then-underaged protege, Aaliyah.

In a statement to CNN at the time, Kelly's publicist, Trevian Kutti denied previous allegations. Kelly was acquitted on nearly two dozen child pornography charges. The case went to trial in 2008, and Kelly was acquitted on all charges.

"'I'm not proud of that (day),' he said". They also suggested his likeness may have been computer-generated.

In 2008, the Cook County jury on the case deliberated for 7½ hours before finding the R&B star, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, not guilty on all 14 counts. The marriage was annulled in February 1995.

The new documentary details the relationship in 1994 between the late singer Aaliyah and Kelly, who married him when she was 15 and he was 27. "There was a girl and when she was trying to talk about it, she couldn't", Dash says during the interview. I think it's time he feels some pressure.

Release of DRC presidential election results to be delayed
Ahead of the vote, the US ordered non-emergency government employees and family members to leave the country. The electoral commission chief urged people to "remain patient" while it continued to collate results.

"These lies and fabrications can not be tolerated and allowed to be spewed from the forked tongues of saboteurs of Aaliyah's legacy".

The series also includes the singer's second ex-wife Andrea Kelly, who also made abuse allegations.

In December 2018, an event promoting the docu-series was evacuated by the NYPD after a gun threat was called in at the venue. A screenshot circulating online shows dream hampton, the producer of the documentary, calling him out and alluding to his dishonesty. "Maybe I didn't care because I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women.", he added.

- John Legend (@johnlegend) January 4, 2019To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn't feel risky at all. I believe these women and don't give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist. He is not FACE of sexual assault. These survivors deserved to be lifted up and heard.

Chance also posted the full interview clip on Twitter, in which he says, in part: "We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression ..."
