| WAKE up call!!
Just watched the entire 6 parts, an eye opener!

I've listened to R.Kelly's music since the 90s and have to say he's an incredible talent, but there's this other dark side that is very disturbing. I was aware of the allegations ever since that Sex tape got leaked. Yes, I do wear spectacles and I made sure that my eyes were tested, YES, it's him in that video or he has a identical twin!

This documentary series not only interviews the survivors / victims, but also R. Kelly's brothers, producers, childhood friends, teachers, psychiatrists, family friends, and personal assistant, who are all saying the same thing, claiming he's a control freak and a monster.

Interestingly, when you connect the dots i.e. read his lyrics, the sex performances on stage, the fact he was molested as a child, the whole thing with Aaliyah start to get a picture of what is going on here. Yet, he's still not been arrested? Why?

Of course, I'm keeping an open mind. There's always two sides to every story, from what I can see over the years, it doesn't look good for him!.

People like R. Kelly have deep psychological scars from being abused as a child. They want to be in control as adults and one of the reasons he has all those women in that house is partly due to having power and being control. He's afraid of becoming powerless. This is deep, the fact he had no father to guide him as a child and living in the projects certainly caused some level of inner trauma.

R Kelly says in his song called "I like the crotch on you"

"C'mon baby, let me see you swing it, swing it I like the way you come up, baby, when you wiggle it Jiggle it, mmmm tasty And once you see the D's, oh, you're gonna want to freak me, freak me Only if you're old enough, BABY 18 AND OVER OR 16 AND UNDER, Oh, but how I wonder, I wonder."

"BABY 18 AND OVER OR 16 AND UNDER " <--- That's blatant!!

Either all the victims are professional lairs and R. Kelly is telling the truth or R. Kelly is a professional liar and the victims are telling the truth, nevertheless, there needs to be an investigation into this.
