As the New York Times detailed, Kelly was indicted that summer on 21 counts of making child pornography.
The singer has claimed multiple times that he was molested by an older female relative as a child; first in his 2012 autobiography, Soulacoster, and several times since then over the years.
"I was molested by a family member and that shook my world", Carey said in front of the cameras. Because it happened to me. "Great performer, but I won' support him in that way". She believes the 51-year-old singer "pursues teenage/underage" girls and "lures" them into having sex with him and other women, specifically the ones he "raises". "Like, you better call or I'm gonna call for you'". "I couldn't believe all the stuff that was going down".
John, who had previously worked with R Kelly, said his involvement wasn't a hard decision for him to make, despite others refusing to comment on the issue. She claims that she witnessed R.Kelly have sex with Aaliyah when she was only a teenager on a tour bus.

It was just a quick little ceremony, nothing elaborate. He didn't move. I said, 'Get your ass out of here.' Left it at that. "Aaliyah looked anxious. Scared". She was anxious and scared. I was asked to talk about his genius. "Both of them. I knew that it had changed the course of everything", admitted Smith.
Their marriage was reportedly annulled shortly after.
Bootlegs of the Kelly sex tape (in which he urinates on a minor) were so widely circulated (two years before YouTube came into existence) that just about any interested party could obtain one.
She reveals how over time she went from surprised to concerned and eventually disgusted at the relationship between the singer and the young teen.
