Earlier today (July 17), news broke about R. Kelly allegedly holding a group of women -- some as young as 18 and 19 years old -- in a "cult" l in his Atlanta and Chicago properties. Since then, social media has had more than enough to say. 

“In the back of our minds, we were thinking [my daughter] could be around him if I was with her,” one of these women's mother J. said. “It didn’t really hit home. Even with the Aaliyah situation, now that I think about it, ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number’ ... but you don’t think about that. You grew up with the song, and you like the song.”

Three of Kelly's former employees also added that these women are being abused, too. "He left [the Florida woman] on the [tour] bus for, like, three days and she was not allowed to come out,” Asante McGee added about Kelly's punishments he given the women who disobey his "rules." “He said she didn’t do her homework — that’s why she was punished — which was very confusing, because she had just graduated [high school] over the summer.”

Social media is NOT here for Kelly or anyone who continues to defend him. After all, this is the same guy who went to trial for child pornography, married a 15-year-old Aaliyah, and has had reports detailing his sexual encounters written by a number of different outlets. He even calls himself the Pied Piper!
