Tide’s turn­ing for star Kelly

The People - - News Features -

wrig­gle off the hook and dodge the ques­tions. It’s in­cred­i­ble to think she is the first fe­male host in the show’s 40-year his­tory.

And she made a star of Diana Good, the “woman in the yel­low jacket” who went vi­ral af­ter telling ev­ery­one to stop feel­ing sorry for Theresa May.

What a great start. FI­NALLY singer R Kelly may have to face the mu­sic.

The doc­u­men­tary, Sur­viv­ing R Kelly, out on US chan­nel Life­time last wee week, de­tailed more truly shock­ing claims of al­leged preda­tor preda­tory sex­ual be­hav­iour and phys­i­cal abuse of women and un­derag un­der­age girls. Sto­ries about his be­haviou be­hav­iour, all of which he has de­nied, h have been aro around for years years.

There have bee been nu­merou nu­mer­ous law suits and even a trial bu but he was acq ac­quit­ted. I haven’t been able to lis­ten to his mu­sic for years withou with­out feel­ing sick so it’s good to see th the wall of si­lence around him starti start­ing to crum­ble.

La Lady Gaga, who once defe de­fended him has apol­o­gised fo for work­ing with him.

Cyn­ics say it is dam­age lim­i­ta­tion be­fore the Os­car nom­i­na­tions but at least she has spo­ken out and vowed to stand be­hind the vic­tims. His es­tranged daugh­ter has called him a “mon­ster”.

John Leg­end, the only ma­jor star to ap­pear in the se­ries, said “time’s up for R Kelly.”

As with the al­le­ga­tions against Har­vey We­in­stein and Kevin Spacey, the trickle is turn­ing into a flood.
