R. Kelly Accusations: Gloria Allred Hosts Live Press Conference
The media circus surrounding R. Kelly and the accusations made against him have been absolutely wild. The singer has been deemed the “King of R&B” until a few weeks ago when allegations made against him turned into a Lifetime docu-series. Since Surviving R. Kelly aired, multiple updates have broken out each day about Kelly’s situation. With the new information, more people begin to turn against him for acting out such despicable things in the past. Whether we go back years to when he was with Aaliyah or we observe the more recent allegations of a “sex cult,” the things Kelly has been accused of are horrible.

In a live press conference, Gloria Allred spoke on behalf of her clients about what her plans are in working against R. Kelly in court. She is representing a few of his accusers, including Faith Rodgers, and they are accusing him of retaliation. Of the things Allred claimed in the press conference, she referred to Kelly’s actions as “disgusting tactics” before telling him to prepare for a legacy similar to disgraced members of the Hollywood community Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein.
A civil suit has been filed against R. Kelly and since then, Faith Rodgers has been a victim of online bullying. Her representatives are confident that R. Kelly will be brought to justice, noting that Faith will not be silenced. What do you make of this?
