Chance the Rapper publicly apologizes for working with R. Kelly

Posted January 09, 2019

In case you've missed the drama surrounding R Kelly following the release of a six-hour length Lifetime documentary regarding his sexual predation, the explosive TV episodes have one again brought the unsafe rapper to light.

"If it wasn't just black women who R. Kelly had been molesting and abusing - if it wasn't just black women - he would have been attacked by the system in a different way". The Facebook page also lists Asante's arrest history and claims she is working with the father of Joycelyn Savage (her family believes she is now being held against her will by Kelly) to extort money from the 50-year-old singer. The courts ruled in Kelly's favour. Kelly has been accused of brainwashing numerous women in his orbit, and even operating a "sex cult" out of his home.

R. Kelly faced child pornography charges in Cook County in 2002, but was acquitted after a trial in 2008. "I also hope news outlets will think twice about helping shape the negative narrative about Black women, and that's where diversity in newsrooms comes into play", said Chaney. If he's not going to jail, then I hope his friends, family or the people who claim to love him can at least try to get him into some type of treatment program where his multiple problems can be sorted out before more women suffer in the future.

The series also investigates why the many allegations and long-swirling rumours around Kelly (not to mention his media mis-steps) have failed to impact his career.

I don't believe or support R. Kelly, and neither should anyone else. Another woman in the documentary, Lisa Van Allen, also alleges Kelly had sexual encounters with the 14-year-old.

R Kelly's last social media activity came on January 1, with the R&B singer promoting his new single Born to my Music.

"We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression", he says.

The discussion surrounding this issue has sparked heated debates but most importantly has raised awareness of the mistreatment of Black women.

That same article originally wrote that Chance said that "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women".

It's on all of us to stand up against sexual assault.

Despite this, according to The Blast, Spotify streams of Kelly's music have reportedly increased by 16 percent since the doco debuted.

On August 31, 1994, R. Kelly, 27, illegally married Aaliyah, who was only 15 years old, in Chicago.

R. Kelly has responded to the documentary, saying he has not watched it but plans to sue.

Master P is the father of nine children, which may be why he feels at liberty to speak on the situation of R. Kelly.
