Judge: You R Going to Court ... Finally!

12/21/2007 2:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After five and a half years, R Kelly finally has a date for his child porn trial. Ignition!


Kelly was in court today -- just two days after he missed an appearance due to some, er, difficulties with his tour buses in Utah. The judge was not pleased, commenting that the court had worked around Kelly's tour schedule. In the end, Kelly apologized (I'm not trying to be rude!) and the judge decided not to revoke his bail. Toot toot!

The judge also said he could perform at his concert tonight in Chicago. It's the freakin' weekend baby, I'm 'bout to have me some fun!

For those that want R. Kelly to go to jail, I join you in that sentiment. That being said, however, the trial still has to take place and there are no guarantees. I only hope the prosecution has an air-tight case because as we have seen with Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake and others, there is no sure thing when it comes to the courtroom.

I still say R. could've been stopped years ago if the Haughtons (the parents of late R & B star Aaliyah) would've pressed charges back in 1993-94 when they found out their then 15 year old daughter was married to this early 30's star! I applaud them for stepping in on that situation but they should've finished R. off back then, then maybe we wouldn't be dealing with this now.

Back to the present, it is such a shame that such a talented individual has a sickness like this. I put him in the vein of Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Chris Benoit, Michael Vick and others who had great talent in their respective fields but was caught up by whatever demons had control of them.

I shed no tears for R. Kelly though. As great as he is, this must end. To quote Anthony Hopkins from Bram Stroker's Dracula...."Make no mistake. He must be stopped."

R Kelly will get off. It's been over five years and no trial. In other words the prosecution doesn't have any evidence against him. Think about it Micheal Vick was tried and convicted in less than a year. If you don't like R Kelly or his music then don't listen.

........................Hello mstkelly34 @ 6:07 PM.........................I always wonder where people like you live?.............How have you spent your life,.......up to this point,............that you could possibly think, that this R. Kelly person is a fine upstanding citizen..............This Robert Sylvester Kelly, the (40) year old man who assaults young children........................You have displayed, for every one on here today, that you don't read, write, color, or think...............You figured out how to work the keyboard and now you can say all kinds of really, below average things...................The mind of an immature, under educated, immoral, drain on society, person,............does that about cover who you are?..............Look over at that mirror and tell us,...........is that you?......................No, I don't like people like you.........no one ever does do they?........................I hope this Kelly person goes to prison just like Michael Vick, and soon to be OJ Simpson, and any others that break the laws of society............

Max61 Hello...........Oh you have been far too kind to mstkelly. It crossed my mind very quicly after reading his/her post that what is presented is aperson of very low I.Q., without scruples, ethics, or a sense of morality. ...........who rapes the system....as in social assisstance.............& anything else that he/she can take. Mstkelly sounds quite illiterate, & ignorant....but let us not forget....stupid. He/she doesn't mind what you do as long as his/her primitive needs are met......& mstkelly isn't averse to the rape, & molestation of little girls. We know that his closet is not empty because he has told us that..... thanks for the revelation mstkelly..but unnecessary, to state the obvious. Bit of a "mutant", really......

.......................Hello syd........Good to hear you..............You're correct......................I will try to do a better job next time................................I am not sure mstkelly34 would understand, much of anything, that was above plain vulgar, and lower socio-economic..............And society worries that China, will surpass us without firing a shot?.......These are the types for us to worry about..........How many of them are there?.......................I see she hasn't come back yet..............
