R. Kelly Drops New Song “I Admit” To Reply Critics On Sex Allegations

R&B singer R. Kelly, whose career has been under siege in recent months amid allegations of sexual misconduct, is fighting back. Kelly on Monday released a surprise song -- a 19-minute confessional titled  "I Admit" -- that addresses years of unflattering headlines about his private life.

Beginning line after line with "I admit ..." the singer confesses to a multitude of acts, including infidelity, sleeping with his girlfriend's best friend, having sexual relationships with fans and going to strip clubs every week. Kelly claims to have been sexually abused by a family member from when he was a child to age 14. He also admits to dropping out of school, telling lies, drinking and smoking too much, not being able to read because of dyslexia and not owning his own music.

Kelly's long history of accusations of impropriety with young women date back to 1994, when the singer was 27 years old and reportedly married his 15-year-old protegee, singer Aaliyah. The marriage was annulled after Aaliyah's family became aware of it, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
In 1996, Tiffany Hawkins filed suit against him and his record, publishing and management companies, claiming personal injuries and emotional damage arising from what she alleged was a sexual relationship she had with Kelly that began when she was 15.

That case was settled out of court -- as was a suit brought in 2001 by former Epic Records intern Tracy Sampson, who claimed she began a sexual relationship with the singer when she was 17.
In 2002, Kelly was indicted on child pornography charges for allegedly videotaping himself having sex with an unidentified underage girl. The case went to trial in 2008 and he was acquitted.

In 2017, a 24-year-old woman alleged she had a sexual relationship with Kelly when she was 16. Kelly denied the accusation and no criminal charges were filed.
Last July an explosive Buzzfeed article, written by DeRogatis, claimed the singer was holding a group of adult women against their will as part of what some of their parents said was a "cult." Kelly would not comment, but his attorney dismissed the "debunked" allegations in an email to Buzzfeed. One of the women later denied publicly that she was being "brainwashed" by Kelly and said, "I'm totally fine."
And in May a 20-year-old woman filed suit against the singer, claiming he unlawfully gave her alcohol, assaulted her and gave her a sexually transmitted disease. Representatives for Kelly declined to comment.

A growing chorus of celebrities have urged the entertainment industry to cut ties with Kelly. A handful of his concerts in the past year were canceled, and Spotify announced in May it was removing Kelly from all its playlists and algorithmic recommendations. As of Monday evening, "I Admit" does not appear on Spotify.

In "I Admit," Kelly lashes out at his many critics.
"Now I don't know what else to say except, I'm so falsely accused. Tell me how can you judge when you've never walked in my shoes," he sings.
"You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions ... but really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion?

@Goodie: I know you have more to say about this issue. To me, I really feel for the young man. We all have come short of many things life. That being said, it is up to us to be a better person. Besides, his accusers aint saints. They lure him and accuse him. Quite bad

@Yaw & Michael: Despite all, I can't stop admiring his dexterity in life. The guy is super human. His song "Did you ever think" ft Nas is one of my favourite motivational songs . It tells a story of success from little beginning . I like the part of the music video where he went to buy cars after making it big in life
