  In February, Robert Kelly was accused of 10 counts of sexual abuse misconduct from incidents stemming from 1998-2010. Saturday, he was released from jail after paying his unpaid child support. On social media, numerous people accused him of running a “sex cult” where he was holding women against their will.

  Recently, two accounts of abuse came up within the case. One woman says that she began having sex with the singer when she was 17, at the time of which he was 28. The victim also claims that she experienced mental and physical abuse during their relationship. Another woman claims that Kelly brainwashed her daughter when she was 17 and in the “cult”.

  Lakeview students and teachers had their opinions about the situation, and not many of them were positive. There are some who think his music shouldn’t be played on the radio anymore.

  “Who would want a child molester to have a platform? I applaud which ever radio stations stopped playing him,” said Tatyana Collins, ‘20.

  “I think that radio stations have the right to not support someone that’s involved in that kind of behavior,” explained Jeffrey Kaspari, foreign language teacher at Lakeview.

  Others don’t agree with the fact that they should take off his music unless Kelley is proven guilty.

  “I don’t think they should just stop playing his music because some people just don’t care about rumors, they care about facts. There are still people who like listening to him,” elaborated Sheila Hutcherson, ‘20.

  In his response to these accusations, students believe he should go about things differently. In an interview with Gayle King, Kelly was yelling and acting aggressively. This can be seen as chaotic behavior. According to him, he’s never abused women sexually or physically and denies he’s ever preyed on underage girls.

  “I don’t think he’s doing a very good job in explaining everything. How he’s portraying himself isn’t right. He’s making himself seem more aggressive by yelling like that in the interview,” insisted Shanice Mathews, ‘20.
