It’s no secret that R. Kelly has meticulously covered his tracks for decades, so evidence would be hard to unearth throughout his former and current criminal investigations. The 52-year-old crooner, according to his victims and Surviving R. Kelly, has updated his ways of luring in young girls for his pleasure since he began these disturbing acts in the early '90s. The number-one thing he made sure to keep on file, like most celebrities, were non-disclosure agreements.
It’s been stated that several women, and even some parents, had to sign the NDA prior to visitation and engaging in any activity, and now, thanks to The Blast, here are the details.
After the document was signed, the signee then became “a privileged member of Robert Kelly’s (‘Mr Kelly’) team (the ‘Team’), which may allow [them] to access privileged and/or confidential and/or proprietary information only available to trusted members of Mr. Kelly related enterprises (the ‘Opportunities’).”
1. The premise and concept of his intellectual property
2. Mr. Kelly’s business and private life
3. The business activities/dealings/interests of the Company, Mr. Kelly, and/or its officers, directors, affiliates and employees.
4. The Company’s employment practices or policies
5. “The activities occurring in connection with the Opportunities”
6. All Ideas, concepts, business/marketing plans, contractual/financial information, as well as business relationships/contacts disclosed by the Company
7. "The outcome of the Opportunity"
Furthermore, the signee could not divulge any of this classified information to “other team members [...] except where there is a specific reason to know,” had to “ensure that my agents, family, employees and all persons that I introduce to Mr. Kelly and his affiliates are obligated to keep confidential and never disclose, use, misappropriate, or confirm or deny the veracity of, any statement or comment concerning Mr. Kelly, the Company and any and all entities affiliated with Mr. Kelly” and essentially, couldn’t use “the Company [nor] Mr. Kelly” for clout. Lastly, the signee could not sue and “forever discharged Company from any matter of liabilities." If the signee were ever in breach of contract, legal repercussions would follow.
The streaming platform announced that fans can now block any artist from appearing on curated playlists. On forthcoming updates, an artist’s music will be blocked from personal libraries and playlists and you won’t even be able to manually stream said artists without reneging on the initial block. You can access the feature by searching an artist’s page, clicking the "..." option and choosing, “don’t play this artist.”
The internet is now urging other streaming platforms to follow suit.
