Despite his cool, calm and collected response to the uproar, R. Kelly is feeling the heat in the midst of Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docu-series.
After two reports of law enforcement interaction on Kelly’s trail, including his Chicago nightclub birthday bash and a police visit to his music studio (rumored to be the prime location of his sex cult hostages), the Pied Piper also reportedly landed in a hospital stint from alleged panic attacks. The news arrives after a poignant message from his 21-year-old daughter Joann Kelly (a.k.a. Buku), denouncing the “monster” that is her father, his actions, and revealing her estranged relationship with him.
Several members of Hollywood have also turned up the heat on Robert Kelly, such as Tank, John Legend, Meek Mill, India Arie and Ne-Yo in light of the controversy. But leave it to Queens heavyweight 50 Cent to blaze the fire beneath R. Kelly even hotter and on none other than his Instagram bully grounds.
Reports had it that Chicago PD crashed the festivities after a 911 caller alleged that Kelly had a warrant out for his arrest. “👀at the club,” Fif wrote in the video. “😟and got b**ches somewhere sh**ing in buckets. 🤷🏽♂️.”
The Power star was referring to the withstanding allegations regarding Kelly’s sex cult where he’s said to have brainwashed and held several young girls captive. Though a few of them, namely Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, have denied the reports, many folks have pointed to Stockholm Syndrome displays from the women.
Though a bit crass, 50 Cent makes one of the few handfuls of people in Hollywood willing to publicly address the Kelly controversy.
It’s something, right?
