Protests over R&B singer Kelly

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

R&B singer R Kelly de­fi­antly per­formed in the US amid protests about his treat­ment of women.

The I Can Be­lieve I Can Fly hit­maker told the crowd on Fri­day night he had “been through a lot” in re­cent days be­fore launch­ing into a num­ber of sex­u­ally sug­ges­tive songs.

Pro­test­ers demon­strated out­side the North Carolina venue against Kelly, who has been ac­cused of sex­ual mis­con­duct.

The singer de­nies wrong­do­ing and is not fac­ing any crim­i­nal charges.

Kelly, 51, has been hit with a num­ber of al­le­ga­tions in­clud­ing claims he trapped women in a sex “cult”.

He has re­cently been tar­geted by the #MuteRKelly cam­paign, which calls for the singer to be boy­cotted.
