R. Kelly Jurors: No Doubt It's Him on the Tape

6/13/2008 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even though jurors in the trial of R. Kelly absolutely believed it was him on the tape, they could not reach a guilty verdict because they said there was "not enough evidence to prosecute." Huh?!

Five of the twelve jurors met with reporters immediately after handing down the acquittal. They said they just couldn't reach a verdict even though they voted on the hour, every hour because the alleged victim hadn't testified and refused to cooperate. As recently as this morning, we're told, the vote was split nine to three for a not guilty verdict.

The jurors were also "absolutely disgusted" with the tape. Unlike the bootleg version you can buy on the street corner, the version they got to watch was "clear as day."

We're hearing R. Kelly will be partying it up tonight in Chicago.

we all know it is r kelly on the video tape.it doesnt take a scientist to figure that out. he got off lucky.because of the juror's that he have.and for the people that are saying it a raciest thing how can that be said.when some of the people on the juror wasnt even black.before you make a comment like that do your homework. and for the people that say it raciest. what about the case in texas where you got all these white mens. having sex with those underage girl.and beside that getting them pregnant.. and they go in front of a white judge.and get some of the kids back. so what do you call that justice. that just life to alot of white people youll have been know to do alot of insest with your own kids. or family members. i am white and all white people knows that . that is one of the biggest kept secrets.
so when you post your comment keep it honest. because we know that we can do alot of things and get away with.by being white. he shouldnt have did the crap anyway.

when you post a comment. keep it honest.his juror wasnt mostly black. they know it was him.the entire world knows that it is r kelly on that tape it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure that off. but he will have to answer to god for the things he have done wrong. alot of those girls lied about their age.and alot of youll know that youll would have done it to.if you had a chance to be with him. or if no one possible found out about it. also white people have been known to get off on stuff to. let reflect back look at the white girl who say the black guy rape her in georgia. when she slept with him but was scared what her daddy would do who is in the kkk so she said he rape her..look at the texas case. where childrens was taken from that compound that being abuse my mens that are older that r kelly.and gettng married to them and pregnant.they went in front of white judeges. and some of the children have been return in texas. that is sick. white people are know for alot of insest in the family. that is one of the biggest kept secret..the girls he dealt with wasnt family members.

the person that made the comment about barak obama had something to do with it.obama dont even assoiciate with r kelly. the person that made the comment..about black people being money.white people are close to money. money stink. when white people sweat or dont wash their hair. then youll start to smell. and you cannot compare this 2 oj simpson.he kiiled to people and people must have forgot.nicole simpson hook up with oj.because she wanted a better life.then she became a drug attic.and also a whore..r kelly didnt kill anyone. he just slept with girls that said they was young and lied about their age. and alot of youll would lie about youll age if youll have the opportunity to sleep with singer. actor or anyone else.
it amazing how white can bash black people for not finding r kelly guilty. the juror was majority white.so when you call black people idiot and stupid .then call your own kind as well.idiot and stupid.
you want to talk about someone stupid.how about the judges that are returning them kids back to the compound in texas. where those girls are going back to the place.whre they are going to be sexual assaulted by those older men's their. and getting those girls pregnant..

Sounds like a lot of the comments were from white people that are still upset that a black man had enough money to pay a lier oops lawyer to get him off.White people have hung and drug us raped our mothers took our child for years.This is a judicial system you set in place!!!!!.I belive R.Kelly was set free by a jury of his peers.He played by the rules it just happend to end in his favor GO Kells

Trophy wife Slim and Trim!!!!    

I read in a German Tabloid that uber publicity whore Rumer "hooked up" with R Kelly the night after the verdict. Please someone tell me this isn't true!!!!!!

Suposedly after R Kelly had "his way" with her he had his underlings drive her to some carnival and watched her "make love to several of the peformers in the freak show.

Please tell me this isn't true!!!!

This dude is a sick dude. I am outraged at the verdict. Hasn't anyone learned from the OJ Simpson verdict? That's why the justice sytsem sucks as we know it. His butt needs to take responsibility for his idiotic (to say the least) actions. OK, where's Dr. Phil or better yet Steve Wilkos?

Hey u dummies saying all the evil hateful stuff. #1 if the jurors couldn't determine it was her on the tape, then it wasn't her!
#2 If it wasn't her then it wasn't a minor girl!
#3 If it wasn't a minor girl then he is not a pedofile!
#4 You all have shown how hateful you can be- hating another person & wishing them evil is an evil in itself.
#5 What have YOU done that was wrong- I know YOU are guilty of something!

HERE ARE THE FACTS.IS WAS R KELLY ON THE TAPE. AND R KELLY KNOWS THAT AS WELL. THE GIRLS THAT ARE SAYING IT WASNT THEM ON THE TAPE IS LYING.IT WAS THEM AS WELL. THEIR OWNS FRIENDS TESTIFY IN COURT THAT IT WAS THEM ON THE TAPE....ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE BLAMING THE JURY.THE JURY SHOULD BE BLAME SOMEWHAT BECAUSE THEY HAD THE EVIDENCE AND BASICALLY IGNORE.. BUT BLAME THE JUDGE AS WELL, .ALSO BLAME THE ATTORNEY.'S ON BOTH SIDES. THIS THING IS BIGGER THAN THAT.R KELLY IS ONE OF THE TOP SELLING SINGER OUT THEIR. HE BRINGS IN ALOT OF MILLIONS FOR HIM..AS WELL AS THE RECORD COMPANY HE IS WITH.............DO YOU THINK THE RECORD COMPANY WOULD RISK LOOSING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ESPCIALLY WHEN ALOT OF ARTIST THAT WITH RECORD LABELS ARE NOT SELLING.... SO GUESS WHAT..THEY ALL WAS PAID OFF. THE JUDGE , THE ATTORNEYS. ON BOTH SIDES. AND THE JURY.........
PEOPLE STOP TRYING TO MAKE IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY BLACK PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH STUFF.LOOK AT THE TEACHERS WHO WAS HAVING SEX WITH THEIR STUDENTS.ALOT OF THEM ONLY GOT PROVATION.AND THEY HAD THE EVIDENCE AS WELL. LOOK AT THE COMPOUND IN TEXAS. WHERE THESE WHITE MENS ARE HAVING SEX WITH THESE YOUNG GIRLS AND MARRING THEM WHEN THEY ARE 13YRS OLD.THAT IS SICK. AND LOOK AT THE JUDGE IN THAT SITUATION HE IS SENDING THOSE KIDS BACK TO THE COMPOUND IN TEXAS. THIS HAVE BEEN ALL ON TV BUT NO ONES TALKING ABOUT THAT.
YOU CANNOT COMPARE THIS TO OJ SIMPSON.EVERYONE KNOW HE KILL RON AND NICOLE. R KELLY SLEPT WITH UNDERAGE GIRLS.THAT IS A BIG DIFFERENCE..... BUT THE PART THAT WASNT LEAK TO THE MEDIA.WHILE IN COURT IS THAT ALOT OF THESE GIRLS SAYS THAT THEY WAS OVER 18YR OLD WHEN THEY REALLY WASNT.BUT ASK YOURSELF HOW MANY OF YOULL. WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE WITH YOUR FAVORITE SINGER OR ACTOR OR ACTRESS.MAJORITY OF EVERYONE WOULD HAVE DONE IT.ESPECIALLY IF NO ONE WOULD FIND OUT. AND IF YOU SAY YOU WOULDNT THEN YOU ARE LYING TO YOURSELF...
ALL THESE RACIEST COMMENTS NEED TO STOP.THEIR ARE GOOD AND BAD IN EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE OR WHAT COLOR THEY ARE.. FOR AS THE MONKEY COMMENTS THAT SHOWS IGNORANCE., AND IT IS SO PLAYED OUT.BLACK PEOPLE DONT CARE ABOUT THAT AT ALL. CAUSE LET TRUTH BE KNOWN. WHITE PEOPLE FIT IN MORE WITH MONKEYS. MONKEYS STINK .AND WHEN YOULL START TO SWEAT YOULL STINK. AND IF YOULL MISS ONE DAY WASHING YOULL HAIR IT STINK.. IT AMAZING HOW ALOT OF WHITE PEOPLE HATE BLACK PEOPLE.BUT THEN YOULL TRY TO ACT BLACK. THE RACIEST COMMENT ON THIS WEBSITE HAVE TO BE FROM SOMEONE THAT EITHER TRYING TO BE RED NECK OR SKIN HEAD OR A KKK MEMBER. WHICH IS LAUGHABLE. ESPECIALLY WHEN KKK HAVE TO COVRE THEIR FACE. TO REPRESENT KKK CAUSE THEY KNOW THT THEY WILL GET BEAT UP.. FOR AS RED NECK AND SKIN HEAD.TRY TO TALK ALOT OF CRAP. AROUND PEOPLE .LIKE Y0U.BUT GET BY YOURSELF.AND YOU BECOME A B_.T_H WHTTE PEOPLE DONT ACT LIKE HAVING SEX WITH UNDERGAGE GIRLS IS A BIG CRIME.WHEN YOULL KNOW IT SOMETHING THAT HAVE BEEN GOING ON IN THE WHITE COMMUNITY FOR SO LONG. WHERE YOUR FATHER AND GRANDFATHER AND UNCLE AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS ARE HAVING SEX WITH THEIR CHILDREN.AND THEN THE WIFE OR AUNT OR GRANDMOTHER KNOWS ABOUT IT.AND DONT SAY ANYTHING..THAT WHY ALOT OF YOULL WHEN YOULL ARE ADULT COMMIT SUICIDE. OR BECOME A KILLER. LOOK AT JEFFERY DOMER. HE KILLED PEOPLE AND ATE THEM NOW HOW SICK IS THAT...

I WISH HE WOULDVE WENT TO JAIL!!!    

this has absolutely nothing to do with race, but about a sick individual. Its okay he didnt get caught up this time, but he surely will go back to his having sex with underage women ways. I can't wait he shoudlve went to jail for a long long time. R. Kelly is a really sick man, and this is coming from a 25 year old black woman.

For the record, I know the lil girls family very well and they are suppose to be SAVED, SANCTIFIED, & FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT; which says alot about the church folk (and you wonder why folk don't want to go to church). The parents of the girl, the lil girl, and every relative who testified for the defense got PAID and is still getting' PAID!!! Its really sad that a close knit family like theirs, and they were really close, is no more. They allowed a perv to come in and break their bond; how sad. The lil girl, now a young woman is messed up for life because I'm sure their not getting her any help. And trust me she needs help, cause he's shaped that lil girls mind and he's still doing it. Oh yeah, for those who say she wanted it and knew what she was doing.... Of course she knew what she was doing because he taught her all that she knew. SAD, SAD, SAD!!!
