Keyshia Cole

Tattles on R. Kelly?!

8/24/2007 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

R.Kelly and Keyshia ColeR&B singer Keyshia Cole may have rocked the legal boat for R. Kelly -- by mistake! Perhaps it was supposed to be kept on the "Down Low?"

In a televised MTV News interview, edgy Keyshia said, "We're actually going on tour together in October." That's strange, considering the platinum pisser is scheduled to start his child porn trial September 17. Maybe she's privy to information that was supposed to be withheld from the public? Hasn't Keyshia been prepped with the "no comment" speech?!

Rumors have been swirling that Kelly's defense team expects him to be acquitted on all charges -- and not serve any jail time. R. Kelly's representative responded with a statement on Thursday: "Reports that R. Kelly is planning a concert tour in October are not true. Kelly is currently focused on preparing for his trial and has no definite plans for anything beyond that." No definite plans ... well, Keyshia seems to know otherwise!

It's probably a good idea to focus solely on the trial at this time, considering the judge presiding over the case has just upheld his decision to allow the infamous sex tape to be shown in court. The video allegedly shows Robert Kelly having sex (and other activities) with a 14-year-old girl. Kelly has pleaded not guilty on all counts.

Democrats are evil    

Why is it that these musical geniuses seem to ignore that things like laws even exist. Kelly, the child predator, insists he did nothing wrong and Keyshia, who seems to be oblivious that there is even a trial. These Phi Beta Kappa prodigies are representative of their loyal fans. Uneducated riff raff, criminals and pedophiles. Duh, I are a college graduate. No wonder the public looks at you and cringes like they just bit into a lemon.

As a black man, I can say that R. Kelly is a complete embarrassment to the black community. Sure he makes great music, but should that get off him from screwing around with another underaged girl? And what really kills me are all the black women who are in support of R. Kelly blaming the victims. These simple minded women just want a piece of R. Kelly and it's so pathetic. All I can say is that any woman, black or white, who supports R. Kelly outside of his music is one stupid ass female.

Honeycone71 is absolutely right. But in my opinion anyone who supports R. Kelly PERIOD...musically or otherwise...is a fool. Musical genius (which is debatable as well) or not, he was WRONG. I don't care if that girl lied to him...any self respecting male who talks to a female should know as soon as she opens her mouth that she's underage. And if that's not the case and he couldn't tell - dammit ask for ID!!!! I'm tired of watching people show undying support for famous people who commit crimes just because they're entertainers who happen to make decent music or movies or whatever the case may be. This whole thing is a disgrace!!!!!!!!

Also, a majority of "of age" blk women speak & write like they are in 5th grade, look at the blog posts on CONCRETE LOOP, Look at some myspace pages of 18+ blk women "I'm Dat B*tch Dat make hoes step Dey game up", " U wish U wuz sexy like me" give me a break please...

My point is not to defend R Kelly, everyone knows somethings not right upstairs, he married Aaliyah - my point is make just as big a deal over what I feel are "true victims" of sex crimes, as I said earlier, the ones who are 5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 years old & dragged kicking and screaming into the night.

The average little girl attacker here in Chicago that's not caught gets his sketch shown for a good 16 seconds on the news and that's it unless they catch him & then 16 months later he's released back into the same neighborhood he committed the crime in.

Are they offering discount concert tickets to females under the age of 18? If so maybe people can bring their daughters and get free backstage passes. I am sure R. Kelly would love to have some young girls sit on his lap for pictures or whatever else the pervert can think of.

Kels is so GUILTY!    

Now, here's proof that this man is aloof...

LET'S TAKE A LOOK
AT SOME OF THE NAMES KELS USES TO DESCRIBE HIMSELF AND HIS BUSINESS
(you can look this up for yourself to verify):

1) CHOCOLATE FACTORY:

He took the idea of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the
character Wonka being a grown man who invited children to his place
of business for amusement.

2) PIED PIPER:

While the parents in the
village were in church, the Pied Piper played his pipe, attracting
all the children...130 boys and girls followed him out of the town,
where they were lured into a cave and never seen again.

3) Songs: Move
your body like a snake, come to daddy...

...all references from the
tape...

4) Song: Age ain't nothin but a number
- he wrote for Aaliyah

5) Song: Champ from Double Up says it all...I'M THE OPPOSITE
OF THE DEMON THAT FACES ME, I'VE BEEN THROUGH HELL, LIVE IN THE BELLY
OF THE BEST, I CONFESS MY SINS BUT STILL DIDN'T FIND PEACE."

He knows what he does is wrong, so he prays and asks God for forgiveness, the
only problem is that you still are accountable, that's why he doesn't
have peace. That's just being real! Parents need to teach their
daughters, don't mess with older men, even if it's Kels or a
celebrity...molesters aren't always ugly, weird men; some are hot,
can sing, and have the ability to charm...it's bigger than consensual
sex...

I found out the girl was in a singing group around the time the video was made, 1998, called: "4 THE CAUSE", the song was: "STAND BY ME"...on wikipedia it says she was born in 1984 (her initials are R.E. aka Shorty)...the proof is out there in the open and everyone knows he's been targeting girls for YEARS...it's incredible that our justice system works for those who have the ability to fight their case...but in the end, he has to deal with the energy he puts out into the world...I hope none of this happens to him or his family, he has daughters and should seek help.

America, dayum WAAAAKKKEE UUUPPP...!

Kels is so GUILTY!    

Yes, America, open your eyes...save our society...!

...the girl's name is Reshona Edwards-Landfair and she was in a CHRISTIAN group around 1998 when the tape was made called, "4 THE CAUSE"...look it up on the cover of the album and the video "STAND BY ME"...it's her on the cover in 1998 as a 13 year old and he was 35 years old then; she is the cousin of his former protege "Sparkle" aka Stephanie Edwards (they have the same last name)!

They were a group in overseas and her dad played in Kels band. He bought her a purple PT Cruiser in high school, which was: OAK PARK/RIVER FOREST and she played on the basketball team there. What child in high school leaving on the near West side of Chicago has a purple PT Cruiser, t.v.'s in the vehicle, and rims on the car???

On wikipedia, it says she was born in September 1984...proof is all over the net, it's crazy that he's not in jail...everyone in Chicago knows about his fetish!!!!

i have to say this, he is not an embarrassment to black people. you know why? because he is not a representative of the whole black race. he represents himself and himself only. just because a black person does something wrong it does not mean all black people are like that. thats what we want to stop doing in society, stop judging people based on their race and look at their actions. r kelly is a sick man, not because he is black, but because he is a pedophile.

#3 You are placing blame on the victim. I don't care how grown, mature or adult-like a 14 yr old GIRL appears, the fact is that she is a child and there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for a man in his 30's to have any type of sexual relationship with her. For your information, this wasn't a random girl off the street. The girl was actually the daughter of a member of his musical team. According to her aunt, singer Sparkle (who did an album produced by R. Kelly years ago), he knew the girl since she was 12. R. Kelly considered the girl his goddaughter. R. Kelly is a predator. What's interesting to me is how some people have maligned this girl as "fast" or have said she knew what she was doing, but nobody goes after the children who were molested by priests. Were they fast too? Were they "hoes"? CHILDREN ARE NEVER TO BLAME FOR MOLESTATION! R. kelly deserves years of jail time. He married late singer Aaliyah when she was 15, settled two statutory rape cases out of court, is on tape with an underage girl and no telling what else. He's a disgusting human being.
