By: Linda Davis
R Kelly is now carrying a sentence in prison for sexual abuse of minors. The rapper and his lawyers demand his release for the reason of the coronavirus pandemic.
82-year old American comedian Bill Cosby who was imprisoned for the rape wants to be released too. Another American rapper 6ix9ine was recently freed. However, prosecutors are sure R Kelly shouldn't be released from prison, since he is treated quite well there.
Earlier, the singer was accused of illegal marriage. He married singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was just 15 years old. R Kelly's marriage was annulled in 1995. Aaliyah died in airplane crash. R Kelly was convicted of sexual abuse of minors many times. In 2002, there emerged a video depicting Kelly having sex with an underage girl. The act of urination on her was also in the video.
For some people, R. Kelly is a criminal. For others, he is a cool rapper. In the video, he performs his song «I Believe I Can Fly» in a very sensitive manner. Do you think he needs to be released from prison?
