When Celebrity Meets Sex Scandal: The R Kelly Debacle

Being a famous musician sometimes means you get away with bad behavior. But it also means the damages are even greater when it finally catches up with you…

Can you imagine what it would be like to have your face on the news because someone accused you of sexually molesting a child? Or what it would be like to have your friends and family members turn against you because allegations of sexual assault were made against you? It would be horrendous, right?

The effects of a sex abuse scandal on your life are devastating!

You would lose relationships with loved ones, and you may even lose your job. You would probably be hounded on social media, and chances are, you could still walk down the street (assuming you didn’t live in a tiny town where everyone knew you) and buy a coffee without being harrassed. Why? Because not everyone knows who you are.

Being “unknown” can be helpful during allegations and scandals.

Which is why celebrities accused of sex crimes have such a hard time. They’re already in the spotlight on a national, and often international scale, and suddenly all these terrible stories are being spread about them. The media jumps at the chance of a scandal, and before you know it, everybody everywhere is trash talking them and their career and social life are in the toilet. And to make it worse, there’s nowhere they can go to get away from it all.

R Kelly is a social pariah in the wake of recent allegations.

Robert Sylvester Kelly, the singer, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player known as R. Kelly is in the midst of a huge sex scandal. From January 3rd to January 5th of this year, LIfetime aired their three part documentary entitled “Surviving R. Kelly” that details the many allegations of sexual abuse against R. Kelly, and overnight his life blew up.

The documentary alleges multiple cases of sexual assault!

Many women stepped up to share their stories with Surviving R. Kelly producer Dream Hampton. Former girlfriends, lovers and even women who were underage when they allegedly engaged in sexual relations with Kelly, all stepped up to talk about the abuse they say they suffered at Kelly’s hands. From forced sexual encounters with other women, being “trained” for sex, being verbally abused and intimidated, the stories seem endless. But R. Kelly denies them all.

This is a terrible time to be the subject of sexual assault allegations.

In the wake of the #metoo movement, and with the Cosby and Nassar sex scandals still so fresh, it’s a hard time to be involved in sexual assault allegations in any way. Sadly, people are automatically assumed to be guilty, long before they’re ever given a chance to defend themselves, or even share their side of the story. While we agree that victim blaming is completely unacceptable, we also believe very strongly that everyone should be assumed innocent until proven guilty, which doesn’t seem to be the American way anymore.
