Home crime R&B Singer R Kelly Going to Jail for the Rest of His...

He believed he could fly.

Back in 1994, singer R Kelly illegally married then teenage singer Aaliyah. She was 15.

Even after Aaliyah died in a plane crash, Kelly was accused over and over again of luring teenage girls to his home or hotel rooms. In 2008, he was acquitted in Chicago on charges of child pornography.

But when the #MeToo movement became a thing in 2017, Kelly’s days were numbered. Today he was sentenced by a New York judge to 30 years in prison, Kelly, who’s 55, will spend the rest of his life in jail paying for his sins. At least 11 of his victims spoke at the sentencing today.

What really kicked open Kelly’s cases was an award winning documentary, produced by Dream Hampton, Tamra Simmons and Brie Miranda Bryant. It was shown on Netflix, and wound up reopening all the old cases. Those women must feel a great sense of accomplishment and justice today.

In addition to “I Believe I Can Fly,” Kelly had dozens of R&B hits, wrote and produced for other artists as well. He was a great talent, but a very sick guy.
