Shamed R&B icon R. Kelly may be sinking under the weight of his pile of sexual assault lawsuits, family pressures and the result of his shocking tell-all “I Admit” record. But the Pied Piper’s most devout fans are not only keeping him afloat in the midst of his climbing controversies, but they’re keeping him on stage too.
In a recent performance, R. Kelly pulled out his signature stage seduction trick for the howling throng of lady fans beneath him. The Chocolate Factory artist kneeled down to the edge of the stage as ladies stacked over one another to grab and touch at him, caressing his face (and disgustingly, his tongue). When he stands up, he keeps the enticement high by thrusting his private area toward the crowd while the women claw and grip at his unmentionables.
While this typical on stage spectacle is nothing new for Pied Piper fans, it’s certainly an eye-snatcher for those keeping up with his latest sexual deviancy allegations (particularly, those from his own family members).
