R.Kelly Talks Child Pornography And Relationship With Aaliyah

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, R.Kelly talked about his relationship with Aaliyah, alleged
child pornography and lot more.

Read excerpts from the interview below.

On Aaliyah?

“I will never have that conversation with anyone,” he told GQ. “Out of respect for Aaliyah, and her mother and father who has asked me not to personally. But I can tell you I loved her, I can tell you she loved me, we was very close. We were, you know, best best best best friends.”
Kelly stayed tight-lipped about his alleged relationship with the then-15-year-old singer, Kelly did recall his initial impression of her when he began working as her producer.

“I heard first of all this soft voice, but very…a lot of charisma,” he recollected for the magazine. “I saw her as a star the minute I heard her sing and dance…I said, ‘This girl’s gonna be a star, whether I work with her or not.'”
Ultimately, he maintains that nothing happened with Aaliyah that he feels badly about. “Absolutely not,” he asserted. “That’s my answer forever.”

“I have nothing to protect myself from. I’m still successful, and I’ve got an album out now, I’m gonna move on after this interview and go to the next interview and do another interview, and these questions are going to be asked,” he concluded on the topic. “Can’t satisfy everybody, unfortunately. I wish that I could.”

R.Kelly faced more controversy in 2002 when his child pornography case made headlines. By the time his case had gone to trial—he had been charged with videotaping himself having sex with an underage girl—it was 2008. After less than a day of deliberations, he was found not guilty on all 14 counts.

“When a person is found not guilty, they’re found not guilty,” he told GQ. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a murder case, it doesn’t matter what case it is, when they’re found not guilty, they’re not guilty. And I think that a lot of haters out there wanted to see me go down.”

He further said: “I have to protect myself”, and R.Kelly is no longer concerned about his public association with “that behavior” portrayed in the infamous video.

Kelly: “It made me feel terrible. But now I, honestly, don’t think about it or could care one way or the other what people think about me,” he declared. “I have fans and I have family that love me, and I have my music, and I have my breath going in and out. I’m more than okay with who I am and who I have become today as a man, and I’m just moving on with my life, man, doing this music. I’m good.”
