Kelly, 52, has long faced allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct. In February, he was arrested in Chicago and indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four victims, including three underage girls. He was charged with 11 additional counts in May, including aggravated criminal sexual assault.
The charges involved incidents spanned from 1998 to 2010 and included alleged victims who were ages 13 to 16 at the time.
R. Kelly’s crisis manager, Darrell Johnson, says the R&B star maintains his innocence following additional federal sexual abuse charges. http://4.nbcny.com/gU8LZj5 27:58 AM – Jul 12, 2019See NBC New York’s other TweetsTwitter Ads info and privacy
Kelly was first tried in 2008 on charges stemming from claims he had sex with a teenage girl and filmed the encounter. But he was acquitted on all counts after the alleged victim refused to testify against him.
In March, “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King conducted a remarkable interview with Kelly in which she pressed him on the charges. The singer vehemently denied the accusations, pleading with King that he was “fighting” for his life. At one point he burst into tears, jumped out of his seat and screamed that he “didn’t do this stuff.”
“Hate me if you want to, love me if you want,” Kelly said during the interview. “But just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through — oh, right now I just think I need to be a monster, hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don’t let them eat, don’t let them out!”
A new video to create the awareness of AIDS unleashed on freddie mercury’s 73rd birthday
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome(AIDS) is a serious disease that the government has been fighting to mitigate, a new measure to educate people has been unleashed through animation video on thursday marking Freddie Mercury’s 73rd birthday.
British singer, Freddie Mercury is a songwriter and lead vocalist of the rock band Queen died in 1991 aged 45 due to complications from AIDS.
The four-minute video clip released by Universal Music Group (UMG) accompanies the flamboyant singer’s 1985 track “Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow”. The tale of the two white blood cells, one of which is infected with the virus, depicts the power of love over fear and ignorance.
“We wanted to tell a story that was relevant to Freddie’s life, but not explicitly about him,” said the directors Esteban Bravo and Beth David in a statement.
Taking a more “microscopic” perspective allows for a more nuanced exploration of the struggles those with HIV/AIDS face in their personal relationships and in society, they added.
“The LGBT+ community fought for years for the right to proper research and healthcare, and because of that fight, millions of lives have been saved. We wanted to celebrate that victory,” Bravo and David said.
The video is also meant as a tribute to the work of the Mercury Phoenix Trust, set up after Mercury’s death to help support projects worldwide in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
The song “Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow” comes from “Never Boring”, the definitive Freddie Mercury solo collection, which will be released worldwide on Oct. 11 through UMG, Hollywood Records and Mercury Records.
