R. Kelly

Snaps Back at Accusations!

2/15/2008 6:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


AccusationsAn R. Kelly spokesman has issued the following exclusive statement to TMZ regarding accusations that Kelly had an inappropriate relationship with his former publicist's daughter
:

"It's hard to take seriously the moral outrage expressed by George and Regina Daniels over R. Kelly's relationship with Mr. Daniels' adult daughter, Maxine. The fact is that they had no problem with the relationship -- indeed, they encouraged it -- while Ms. Daniels was on Mr. Kelly's payroll.

It was Regina Daniels, then working as a publicist for Mr. Kelly, who persuaded him to attend her step-daughter's 21st birthday party. And it was Regina Daniels who shortly thereafter gave her step-daughter Mr. Kelly's private phone number, with the admonition: 'Don't tell your father.' It was only after Ms. Daniels resigned her position to avoid being fired for incompetence that her stepdaughter's relationship suddenly became an issue for her and her husband."

At 21, isn't she a little old for R? I thought he liked em younger...MUCH younger! This guy is nothing more than a pedophile who needs to be locked up and the key thrown away!

I don't like R. Kelly, by any means, but what does it matter? She's 21 fricken years old. I'm 22, and the love of my life is 35. Age is nothing but a number. Get over it. Mommy and daddy just want from him for it. That's all this is.

Once again these people (women) knew exactly and consented to the relationship.
The Daniels used R. Kelly anyway.
Now the jig is up.

WTF!!!! If they would have put his ass away for Child Molestation then all this wouldn't be happening anyways. And yes HE IS A CHILD MOLESTER. When you have sex with children under 18 years of age(and in his case UNDER 15) your a pedifile. And everyone wants to turn the other cheeck on that. Still buying his CD's. Still going to his concerts. Still listening to him on the Radio Stations. Come on man. He should be BEAT. Does anybody remember Aaliyah (RIP)? He was with her!! Does anybosy remember that. I saw the GROSS VIDEOS, and there are more than 1. And he wants to say that wasn't him. Maybe there is a REAL reason why he likes little girls. Maybe he's little. I wouldn't let him be around my daughter. WAKE THE F___ UP people. Take a stand against these kinds of people. This world puts celebrities on a pedestal and they need to be put in a firing line-up!!!!!!

It does matter if it's a minor or not, R Kelly is being watched like a pervert and people can't wait for him to go to trial for the other stuff about 5 years ago, damn. He shouldn't talk with a woman under 30.
