Recent reports indicate that R. Kelly might be suffering from an incurable STD. The legendary singer/songwriter is currently awaiting trial and has continued to deny any wrongdoings in his past.
However, not many people seem convinced by his story at this point, and the allegations that have been going around regarding his life might finally be catching up to him.
What is more worrying in this situation, though, are the reports that Kelly might have carelessly spread his disease to some of the women that he had reportedly had a sexual relationship with.
Some victims have reportedly stepped forward with specific accusations, and may even have a proof for their claims.
Whether Kelly did indeed expose those women to herpes — which is apparently what he is suffering from — and whether he did do this knowing his current condition is going to be hard to prove at this point.
However, it looks like there is a lot of attention firmly focused on Kelly’s situation, and many people have been trying to dig deep beneath the surface to find what is really going on.
The R&B star has been distancing himself from the whole situation to the best of his abilities and has continued to insist that he had done nothing wrong.
Many reports seem to contradict his story at this point though, and he appears to be in quite the hot water already. It will take some time for the full story to come out though.
Douglas Anton, a lawyer for the legendary singer, blamed the multiple federal sex charges he is facing on “groupie remorse.”
The attorney shared a YouTube video of a 1985 David Letterman interview with rocker David Lee Roth explaining how he offered backstage passes to cute girls spotted from onstage and explained: “I urge the court to click this link for a very brief overview of the industry-accepted, understood, and agreed upon, by consent, the definition of the fan and celebrity groupie experience.”
He continued with: “This is touring rock and roll, not a criminal enterprise. These groupies sought out Robert’s attention, even fought each other for it, voluntarily contacted him, came to his shows, pined to be with him. Robert would spend his time and even become friends with and care about these groupies and fans who were dying to be with him.”
The musician has been accused of kidnapping, recklessly exposing women to sexually transmitted diseases, rape, and underage sex.
He has denied those claims.
