R. Kelly Denies Gay Allegations Amid Sexual Assault Claims By Male Victim
R. Kelly claims he has never been attracted to men.
Recently, reports show that R. Kelly, born Robert Kelly, was accused by a man named Louis of having sexual relations with him when he was only 17-years-old and his friend, who was 16-years-old at the time. Reportedly, the then-teenage boys met the famed R&B singer while they were working in a local McDonald’s’ drive-thru.
R. Kelly allegedly gave Louis his number and invited him to his recording studio. Louis claimed that Kelly asked him how far he’d be willing to go to be famous in the music industry.
Kelly’s accuser also said that the “Same Girl” singer inquired about his “fantasies” about men and performed oral sex on him. He claimed Kelly told him to address him as “daddy” and filmed their intimate moments. Louis said:
“He just told me we had to keep it between me and him.”
It was reported that Louis brought his friend to one of their meetings and Kelly welcomed him with open arms. Louis claimed they were intimate as well.
Kelly told his doctor months after being accused that he identified as heterosexual. Reports said:
“Kelly rated himself a one on the Kinsey Scale. A score of one is defined, by Kinsey, as the overwhelming majority of sexual attraction, desire, fantasy or activity is with members of the opposite sex (heterosexual); homosexual experiences are infrequent and largely experimental.”
In addition to Kelly’s refute, the report also detailed the convicted singer’s childhood abuse and other trauma he battled growing up.
As previously reported, last month, Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison after a New York jury found him guilty of all counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. In addition to his sentence, the 55-year-old was ordered to pay a fine of $100,000 and demanded to receive mental health treatment upon his release.
