R. Kelly Charged With Sexual Exploitation Of Children In Brooklyn
R&B legend R. Kelly was indicted this week on racketeering and other charges, according to court documents.
As Page Six reports, R. Kelly is “accused in the indictment of sexually exploiting at least five girls and women, identified only as Jane Does, between January 1999 and the present in Illinois, California, and other places.”
Apparently, all the women and girls were forced to call him “daddy” and weren’t allowed to leave their rooms without permission.
The indictment says that the singer was head of an enterprise whose sole purpose was “to promote the R. Kelly brand and to recruit women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with Kelly.”
“By promoting R. Kelly’s music and the R. Kelly brand, the members of the Enterprise expected to receive financial opportunities and personal benefits, including increased power and status within the Enterprise,” read the filing.
