What R. Kelly Wanted You To Forget About

1. In 1998, Kelly picked up a 16-year-old girl at the "Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonalds" in Chicago, just north of the Loop. They had an affair that lasted until she told him she was pregnant, one of Kelly’s associates drove her to the abortion clinic.

2. Kelly grew up on the South Side of Chicago. The profile of Kelly in GQ magazine says that "family members and early associates" said that Kelly had been abused by an older neighborhood man as a child.

3, They also said he had tried to commit suicide as a youth, but covered up the story of the resulting bullet wound by saying some kids who had been trying to steal his bike shot him.

4. Associates of Kelly have said as well that he can barely read or do basic math; he later confessed in a Vibe magazine story to being illiterate.

5. Kelly is estranged from his siblings and didn’t take care of his mother, who drove a beat-up car and could not pay her medical bills. After she died of cancer in 1997, Kelly declared that he had "found the lord"!

6. Kelly’s personal hygiene left a lot to be desired; he could wear the same clothes for a week. Said one of his former assistants: "I could never understand the women. I’d be like, ‘How could you be with him when he stink like that?’"

7. There are actually three R. Kelly sex tapes! There’s the one with the girl that is at the center of the case; another of an adult woman, who is suing Kelly for filming her without her knowledge; and a third of another young girl, who as yet has not been identified

8. Kelly was sued for an "indecent sexual relationship" in 2000 and 2001 with an Epic records intern, who was 17 at the time, the Chicago Tribune reported. (The story named the woman and quoted her attorney.) Kelly settled the matter out of court!

9. According to the same story, the same lawyer settled a similar lawsuit that charged Kelly with having sex with yet another girl when she was a minor. (She was named as well.)

10. R. Kelly (currently) keeps pictures and video tapes of his sexual escapades with him at all times to show-off to his celebrity friends (Like Antoine Walker)

11. In regards to the 2008 trial that he was just acquitted on. R. Kelly paid off the father of the victim with a personal check at his office. The man bought a black Cadillac Escalade that her currently still drives in Chicago.

12. The "victim" is now a rapper and still talks with R. Kelly (wink!)

BONUS: Any party goer now attanding a "R. Kelly" private event must a sign a confidentiality agreement especially if the event is at his home OR you don’t get passed the door!
