R. Kelly talks underage girls
R. Kelly broke his silence about his recent acquittal on child pornography charges during an interview with BET News. "If it has had any impact, I would hope it would be a positive impact and I can move on with my life," said Kelly in response to a question about whether the trial tarnished his career. "I hope people can give me my life back." Kelly said people who'd spoken out against him during the scandal were only bitter because he'd fired them, including his brother, Carey Kelly. The Kelly sibling told a New York's radio station that R. Kelly attempted to bribe him if he would say the images in the pornographic videos at the centre of the trial were of himself and not his famous brother. "Do not listen to the people that were fired, listen to the facts," said R. Kelly. When asked about his reported fondness for teenage sexual partners, Kelly responded, "When you say teenage, how old do you mean? I have some 19-year-old friends, but I don't like anyone illegal if that's what we are talking about, underage." For someone who came so close to ruining his life because of alleged underage preferences, you'd think Kelly would steer clear of any girl on the juvenile side of 30, let alone 18.
