The police say they are unable to take action as the women concerned are of legal age, and while the media furore has been great, I do wonder if R Kelly will even be indicted given his wealth, influence, top legal team, the fact that the accounts could be classed as “hearsay” and the fact that none of the young women themselves are complaining.As the police said, they are legally consenting adults, unlike the subjects of previous rumours Rumours of R Kelly’s involvement with underage girls have circulated for decades.The report describes the women becoming increasingly isolated from their friends and family – often a telltale sign of domestic abuse - as they have their phone numbers removed and replaced with a phone that only Kelly can call.The women in question were spotted by Kelly as aspiring singers and according to their parents, the superstar made promises to mentor the young talent.He has very much leaned into the image of the sex-crazed man who sometimes is so overcome with desire that he makes the wrong choices. We sent the first record he released after a year of endless reports of underage sexual exploitation to number one.We enjoyed his single with Lady Gaga in which she sings to him “You can do what you want to my body.” And it’s not as if we’ve simply forgotten the accusations after a certain amount of time – they have remained in the public consciousness, with fans, reporters and even celebrities like Amy Poehler gratuitously joking about it. Without doubt because his alleged victims weren’t white women, and black women are consistently afforded less protection, their bodies devalued.Yesterday Buzzfeed reported that 48-year-old R Kelly is effectively brainwashing women – some as young as 17 – into sexual behaviour, with one parent describing the set-up as a “cult”.The women, who are of legal age of consent, currently live in some of R Kelly’s private homes, and according to the report, are given strict rules about how they can dress, how they interact with people, specifically other men, and how often they bathe.
Later, with 9.7 inches i Pad Pro, i OS 9.3 and Apple Watch bands, an i Phone SE (Special Edition) aka i Phone mini was launched as newest 4-inch i Phone on March 21, 2016.Apple i OS 10 update for i Phone and i Pad debuts on June 13, 2016 is supported on device beyond i Pad 2 and i Phone 4S only.You can checkout these i OS 10 feature details in Apple i Phone 7 Specification and features section in this article.Consider that for each stream or sale, it’s money going into R Kelly’s pocket: money that tells him you like it, you like what he does.Jim De Rogatis, author of the Buzzfeed report and a music journalist who has been following Kelly’s allegations for decades, puts it succinctly when he asks whether buying the paintings of serial “clown killer” John Wayne Gacy (who apparently was a very accomplished painter but usually just painted pictures of creepy clowns) would make you “undeserving of scorn”.
It is surely the first thing Apple users want to know these days.
