K. Michelle Draws Comparisons Between R. Kelly And Elvis Presley In Controversial Interview -- See Why Fans Are Outraged

K. Michelle has recently decided to open up about her past -- more specifically, the part where she used to work as a stripper -- and she also shared her two cents on the current situation around her former boyfriend, R. Kelly.

Michelle did not seem overly critical towards the singer and songwriter -- entirely on the contrary, and she was more reserved in her judgments than most other people have been so far.

Still, she shared some words about the situation and explained that she was mostly disappointed with the way people were treating Kelly.

And in a somewhat controversial statement, Michelle even drew comparisons to Elvis Presley, claiming that if he had no problems picking up his wife at 14 from high school, then it was strange that Kelly was being treated differently.

Michelle revealed: “I was standing in the booth as they were (sic) taking him into jail, and I was looking through the booth at the TV.”

Michelle added: “To be standing in the booth and to see that, I just lost it. That was a lot because I know right is right and wrong is wrong but, I don’t have a heaven or a hell to put this person in. We are not [the ones to judge]. I do know that if Elvis can pick up his wife at 14 from high school, all I want is the same energy.”

However, some supporters of the King of Rock 'n Roll have pointed out that the situations of the two celebrities are not the same at all, and Kelly is in a lot more trouble in the public’s eye than Presley has ever been.

She also stated: “I’m not gonna defend this man (R. Kelly). I know, for me, yes, he is a controlling man, but he would control my music. He would tell me ‘you gonn’ sit in here with the same clothes on until you finish this song because it needs to be amazing.’”

Kelly himself has not commented much on the things said by his former partner, though he has made it clear so far that he has no plans to back down from his position, and he is going to continue fighting for his freedom as best as he can.

Opinions on the crooner are a bit divided at the moment, with many people questioning whether he is indeed guilty, but most seem to be leaning towards that conclusion.

    I have nothing but respect for K Michelle speaking her truth. I could not agree with her more. Priscilla has said, out of her own mouth that she was involved with Elvis at 14 and that he would also give her pills at that young age. I refused to believe a one sided narrative that has been forced down my face by life time, with stories not vetted and no lie detectors given. After doing research, it is unbelievable how many holes can be found in these accusers stories. Actual recordings of the parents stating that they lied about their part in the Lie-time docuseries. Audio of an Ex-husband discussing one of the a accusers attempt to infiltrate his camp to sleep with him, only to set him up. Co-workers discussing his conversation w: one of the fathers attempt to set him up. A father stating if RKelly would have written a song for his daughter then he would not have taken this route. And besides all the girls on the documentary were legal age besides the one who openly admits she lied to be with him only to trick him later. I refuse to cast judgement and presume him guilty before he has been tried in a court of law.

    People you will never win with these people. ELVIS had a stamp of approval... KELLY will never get that... some of these people needs to google their king... you might learn something you never thought you would... he was not Mr. Clean... I don’t give a damn about how he shuck his legs, he also shuck his tongue... and she WAS a KID!

    I like what kay said she was right so don’t judge her or me either, at the end of the day he was wrong in the eyes of you people but hey I didn’t see your president or any of those white people in jail. It like the systems is racist to in some form of a way. Kelly did date young girls but they were willing. And some of them parents put them out there. Why they’re not in jail too. You see we are all f up that’s sad to say but true. Lol I just remember also back in the days 1930’s and so people where getting married off at 13 years old I know that because my grandma was one of them. All I’m saying as look deep... as long as the others color and only was doing it it was okay as so as we do it the rules change or get harder. And they knew what he was doing so long ,but they the care because he had to make them a large amount of money but until then they was going deal. Sad world we live in.but at the end of the day God has the last call. Keep your head up Kelly I’m not mad at you I know I’m pray for you.just get some rest and stop fighting and set and rest and let God fight your battles God is love and love is God......

    I feel and support K. Michelle views on the R.Kelly situation bcuz if it was ok for one man to date young women then have the same energy toward the next man regardless, of race. I know Elvis probably didn't do all the things the media is saying R. Kelly has done and thats a different story and charge from the point im making. What im saying is, dont penalize one man for dating young women if you're not going to penalize them all. If these men are committing the same type of acts despite, what race they are associated with. Now thats unfair treatment and thats all im saying. K. Michelle understands that and thats why I feel n support what she said.

      It shouldn’t be ok for any one black or white to sleep with a child, almost 17 isn’t an adult. Just because one person got away with it doesn’t mean the next person should. Any woman that has been sexually or physically abused as a child or woman. A caring mother or parent. There isn’t a price on earth for my child/children.

    Why is their a different standard for One artist compared to the next artist! If one is guilty that slept with underage then all are guilty! Plus I don’t see anyone in the indictment younger then 17 which is legal age of consent which is 17 in the state of Illinois!!!

    Yesss...K.Michelle that's what I've screaming from the rafters. They are always coming for ours while they continue to celebrate theirs. Not only Elvis, hell let's talk about Mr. Rock-N-Roll Hall of Famer Jerry Lee Lewis...who married his "13" year old cousin. Don't bring me no b.s. about he married her unless you letting a grown man sleep with your 13 yr. old daughter. Let's move on to Mr. Roman Polanski stars lined up to star in his "Academy Award" winning movies although he plead 'guilty' to having sex with another "13" yr. old girl. I haven't heard not one white person boycott his movies as he continues to make them. Now should we talk about another 'Academy Award' winner the most beloved Woody Allen who married his step daughter after he had nude underage photos of her. Yet all of Hollywood continues to line up to be in his movies & continues to reward him. So don't talk to me about mine until you clean your own damn house!

    My question is where were the parents? Was permission granted because of who these men are/ was? Money is the root of all evil. I agree with KM, it's her opinion and she's entitled to have one just like the rest of us. I blame these girls parent or parents. Why? Because even if r.kelly was proven innocent like he was before for the exact same things WHY would I as a mother of two daughters allow my young daughter around him? Because he stopped paying is why.. smfh! Parents should be charged as well. Wake up people and see what the beginning of the problem is. GREED AND MONEY...

    That is absolutely insane to compare the two!! Yes they met when she was 14, and correspondent the next couple of years while he was dating others. She was almost 17 when her parents agreed to have her move into one of the other dwelings at Graceland... if they weren't living in Germany she wouldn't have moved to Graceland... she also had a chaperone there!! They married when she turned 21. She was not abused degraded controlled to the extent of not being able to communicate with the outside world go to and from and spend any time with their families oh yeah and let's not forget the sexual abuse etc... yes there are vast differences between the two!!

    How dare you disrespect the dead especially when he can't defend himself!!!!! How can you compare the two, first off Elvis never abuse his wife. He respectfully waited until he was married too Priscilla. On the other hand R.Kelly, did unspeakable things. Here's the thing I can never phantom, is how a grown man can look at a lil girl or even a child, in a sexual nature. There isn't any comparison too the king of rock and roll!!!! Whatsoever, she should be ashamed of herslf!!! Elvis, was a very respectable young man who grew into a man that was respected. A man that loved his mama and respected her, would never do anything as doing what this K. Michelle is saying!!! No comparison!!!! And doesn't have anything to do with race!!!! Tired of ppl using the race card!!!!! Just becuz ppl are famous doesn't give them the right to hurt or abuse!!!! Anyone!!!! Men or women, of any race. When famous ppl are talked about by the public or the media, it's because you put your business in the street. But someone like Elvis Presley, who kept his life as private as he could doesn't deserve to be talked about!!!!! In any shape or form or even compared too R. Kelly. I just wish ppl wouldn't talk about famous ppl who don't deserve to be talked about!!! Like Elvis, what he did behind close doors is his business. Especially if he wasn't hurting!!! Anyone!!!! We are all human we have all done things to ourselves that we might not be proud of rather it might be drugs or what hve you. Tht doesn't give anyone the right to talk about elvis, just to make a buck!!! Evn if you knew him on a personal level. Who are we too judge!!! Anyone!!! Only god has that power!!!! We don't live in a perfect world. We make mistakes!!!! So before you judge or make comparisons!!!! Too someone who didn't deserve that!!!! Mr. Presley, might have married his wife at the age off 21 but he respected her, he never hurt her!!!!! So this angers me so much that I could go on and on about how there isn't!!! Or ever will be any comparison!!!! To the king of rock and roll. Especially not that!!!!!! Like the good lord said let who is without sin cast the first stone!!!!! Not unless your lily white, which I doubt anyone is!!!! Life is saddening especially if your world revolves around gossip!!!!!! God bless us all.💙💕💙

    Comparing Elvis to this beast is a complete and utter nonsense and she must know it.What is this BS about Elvis picking his wife up from High School.She was 21 when she married him in 1967 and has loved and supported him even after their divorce and his death to this day.She is a fool.

      Elvis is worst that R Kelly he dated her from 13 years old. R kelly came from abusive background and all R kellys cases would be legal in the UK because the age of consent is 16 in the UK.

      If anyone was a beast it was Elvis Presley. Percisilla when interview Ed by Barbara Walters said , at 14, on the night she first met Elvis Presley, they did ,"everything" sexual except virginal penetration. Google it, its on YouTube. She started spending nites with him at Graceland while still in highschool. He would give her drugs to help her sleep, after long nites, so she could go to school the next morning. Percisilla wasn't the only underaged girl Elvis dated. His friends said they used to be terrified, thinking they all would be arrested because of all the underaged girls Elvis had at Graceland. He had a thing for young virgins. Many books have been written on the subject. Google it. Elvis gets the protection bc of his complexion. So when u start calling someone a beast, think about your idol Elvis Presley and not the King of R /B R. Kelly. Google it, since u seem to believe what the media says about people who haven't been found guilty of anything.
