R. Kelly's Hometown Radio Station Refuses To Play His Music

R. Kelly's Hometown Radio Station Refuses To Play His Music

"The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone", he said.

The Clarys met R. Kelly when Azriel was aged 17.


Nielsen Music says streaming numbers for R. Kelly have almost doubled after a recent documentary accused the R&B singer of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls.

R. Kelly has been under intense criticism after Lifetime released its three-night documentary series, "Surviving R. Kelly", which detailed accusations of sexual abuse and paedophilia allegedly committed by him. The married couple accuse Kelly of brainwashing their daughter and keeping her from contacting them.


"We know what happened, and we know those things didn't happen", lawyer, Steven Greenberg, said.

Based on their account of how they were treated by the singer and other allegations made against him, it would seem that R. Kelly is not the person the world has revered as an icon for many decades. However, multiple police officers have visited with him at his homes and at the Trump Tower last Friday in Chicago, and they found no evidence of wrongdoing after speaking with Kelly and the women.


In April 2018, a woman told authorities that R. Kelly intentionally gave her a sexually transmitted disease, according to Dallas News. He asserted that in the past women have "come on to" Kelly in the hopes that he could help them in their own performing careers, then became "disgruntled" when their own careers stalled and issued false allegations. On Jan. 7, the day after the series ended, Kelly's songs were played on radio 198,000 times.
