Today, on Episode 9 of Real Talk with Bobby G, we will be discussing the recent guilty verdict of R. Kelly. 5 days ago, on Monday, September 27th, 2021, R. Kelly was found guilty of Racketeering, Sexual Exploitation of a Child, Kidnapping, Bribery, Sex Trafficking and a violation of The Mann Act. After getting off a child ography trial back in 2008, R. Kelly has been one of the most controversial superstars of this generation. Most either hate em or love em.
In 2002, R. Kelly was indicted on 21 counts of child ography. His 2008 trial was based on the charged filed in 2002. In 2008, R. Kelly was cleared on all counts after less than a full day of deliberations. Once R. Kelly was cleared of his child ography charges in 2008, he continued his music career and to be celebrated and work with some of the top music industry artists. Many of his fans, critics and music industry peers didn't seem to be clear where they stood morally, as they stated they don't condone pedophilia or any type of sexual violations on minors or women, but continued to buy his music, attend his concerts, post and promote his music via social media and collaborate with him creatively.
The release of Surviving R. Kelly brought R. Kelly's demons back to the light and this time, he was faced with way more allegations, witnesses and victims who came forth and spoke on camera about the inhumane acts that R. Kelly performed on them, in this 6 part series. The docuseries was talked about all over social media and all on television, which helped open a new investigation that would eventually lead to the arrest and criminal conviction of the superstar.
