: R Kelly is about to be all over the news again. Sources close to R Kelly's former publicist Regina Daniels are claiming that the R&B singer assaulted her. Details are still sketchy, but MediaTakeOut.com has learned that both law enforcement and Ms Daniels' lawyers are investigating exactly what happened.
Here is the statement that Regina released earlier in the week:
Friends and Colleagues – After careful consideration and counsel, I have decided to formally announce my resignation as publicist for R&B artist R. Kelly.
My resignation was effective as of August 28, 2007. Throughout the course of my 25 years as a publicist, I have prided myself on loyalty, respect and professionalism. It saddens me that I was not always shown those same courtesies during my 14 year tenure as Mr. Kelly's publicist.
Though I have a great appreciation for Mr. Kelly as an artist, there are some lines that should never be crossed professionally or personally. Mr. Kelly crossed a line that forever altered the scope of our relationship. For this reason I made the decision to resign.
My husband, music retailer George Daniels, has also disassociated himself from Mr. Kelly. George and I are grateful for the show of support and encouragement that we have already received from many of you. We want you to know that we thank you, sincerely. Without change, progress is impossible.
Keeping that in mind, I am excited to tell you that my agency, Daniels Entertainment Group, has an incredible year of expansion and success planned for 2008. Be on the lookout for an update in the near future!
---- Regina Daniels
Keep coming back guys, this story is going to unfold quickly....
(Article originally published at 9:50 AM EST)
Why am I not surprized?? Yall can say he makes good music but that does NOT excuse the fact that he is a CHILD MOLESTER and I guess grown women aren't out of his scope either. Kelly sucks anyway, he hasn't made a good album since "R." in 1999
Here in the Chi the word is that R.Kelly wanted Regina and George to LIE FOR HIM. Strange enough, her resignation is prior to one of the court dates. George and his wife are pillars in the community and everyone loves them. I find it hard to believe that he would assault an adult women...that idiot likes little girls. But then again, he is known to have a crybaby temper and does not know how to keep his hands to himself.
This could very well be 2fold.
MR. PIED PIPER AT IT AGAIN!!! FROM PRE-TEEN PERVERSION AND PISSING TO PUNCHING HIS PUBLICIST LOL! CHECK OUT THIS SONG KELLS TRIED TO GET THE RADIO STATION IN PHILLY TO STOP PLAYING!!!
T-H-E O-N-L-Y P-O-S-T T-H-A-T M-A-T-T-E-R-S!!!!
R Kelley need to get it together....he always doing something and somebody need to start up his case again. He makes great music but as a person he sucks. Please speed up the process on him just like yall did vick and are going to do bonds.
COME ON MTO WHY CAN PEOPLE POST PHRASES LIKE "CHILD MOLESTER, CHILD RAPIST, AND DID KELLS PEE ON HER" AND IT IS OK BUT I TYPE P*SS*NG (I WOULD HAVE TYPED URINATING BUT I FELT A LONG LINE OF P's WERE MORE FITTING) AND YOU REPLACE IT WITH [EXPLETIVE]. THAT IS ALMOST AS BAD AS B.E.T. CENSORING JEEZY SAYING SNOW MAN OR LIL WAYNE SAYING BANDANNA...SELECTIVE CENSORSHIP IS WACK! STOP THE OLD FOLKS N-WORD MOVEMENT HAHA!
T-H-E O-N-L-Y P-O-S-T T-H-A-T M-A-T-T-E-R-S!!!!
Well I love R Kelly no matter what. As far as this story goes, I'll just wait for more details.
For the other stuff, I can't say why the man hasn't been to trial yet---It's been over 5 years! But whenever he does go to trial, he's innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, not in a court of public opinion!
it's people like you that keep R. Kelly so brazen. He has no remorse, he knows his hardcore fans love his dirty draws. He'll keep being a pedophile and acting wreckless, he'll keep running to a preacher before he goes to trial, and he'll continue to make 'good music'.
Thousands of black men in America are registered sex offenders or are in prison for what Kelly did with underaged girls.
I guess you wouldn't mind if we let go all of the inmates who can 'sing' in the prison choir group - because they make 'good music'.
It really pisses me off to read comments from IGNORANT ASS PEOPLE, i.e.
im not even readin this story man, he great at wut he does n i aint gonna knock his hustle
You and Other people that say dumb shit need tall off the FACE OF THE EARTH. How the fuck do you disregard his PERVERTED, DISGUSTING, DISRESPECTFUL, SCUM OF THE EARTH actions just because he's "great at what he does"?
Who gives a fuck, I don't care if He was INVENTED R&B if he is raping, molesting, fondeling, sexually assaulting, anything other that a consenting, mature 18+ woman, then he needs to be locked up in jail and throw away the got damn KEY...
I DON'T GIVE A RATS ASS ABOUT HOW GREAT HE IS!
If he was doing any that shit to your daughter (son) you would want to kill his ass...
So don't try to let him off da hook shit.
SOUNDS LIKE THEY ARE TRYING TO USE R.KELLY S NAME TO PROMOTE THEIR COMPANY...
THEY SOLD HIM OUT! ! ! !
HE DONE SAID HER HUBBY NAME ALL OVER ECORDS AND PUT HIM I VIDEOS ...SO YOU KNOW THIS MEANS THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE HIS TRIAL SOON TO LOCK HIM UP! !
THEY NEED THIS STORY TO FURTHER DEMONIZE HIM! ! !
SEE HOW WE SELL EACH OTHER OUT!!
SPARKLE HOE AZZ SET HIM UP FROM THE JUMP INTRODUCING HIM TO HER YOUNG COUSIN...THATS WHY HER CAREER AINT SHEIT NO MORE!!!
THE MAN IS GOIN AFTER ALL ALL BLACK CREATIVE PEOPLE!
YOU BLIND MICE CANT EVEN SEE THAT! !
THEY GOT IT IN FOR US! ! ! !5
I think people should ask the important questions before they take certain jobs. For example after my interview with R. Kelly I would ask: Do you keep security cameras on the toilets? Do you celebrate take your daughter to work day? etc.
The man, given his history, clearly has no respect for women, so nothing that comes out about this would surprise me...
He's a lowlife that belongs under a prison, I dont give a damn how talented he is....
I cannot believe that as talented as dude is that he is so fukked up sexually. Just like God gave him the talent to make the millions, he can surely take it all away. This man needs some serious help, if he is in fact guilty of these charges. Get it together R!!!!
dummies? ur the dumbazz defending a child molester!
Where in the hel1 do you see me defending him????
All I said is how do you know he didn't assault her physically since everyone was saying that she was too old for him to want to rape her. I am not defending anyone. I never said he wasn't wrong for messing with those underage girls.
MarcStar take your dumbazz back to school and learn how to read you idoit.
Unlike you I don't have 10 kids that I can't afford.
In fact, I don't have any so...
Maybe he should stick his dick down yo mamas throat and piss in yo grannies face LOLOLOLOLOL!!!
Or cum all over your mamas ugly monkey azz face LOLOLOLOL!!!!
People can talk the bullshty they want to talk about R. Kelly but at the end of the day musically can't nobody and I mean NO MUTHAFUGGIN BODY fugg with Kells, Period. At the same time though, George Daniels has been in big support of R. Kelly for years. George runs George's Music Room on Chicago's west side which is a popular spot for artists when they come to town and one of the few mom & pops music stores still in buisness in the fuggin country. What the fugg could R. Kelly's monkey ass have done now? I swear as much as I got love for Kells for being from Chi Town that nicca shole know he can fugg some shyt up. I'm almost bout to be through dealin with this crazy muthafugga foreal.
NINJA, UR A B!TCH FOR REAL, YOU KNOW IT, AND NOW WE ALL KNOW IT. YOU CAN SAY ALL U WANT, BCUZ UR A INTERNET THUG. BUT YOU KNOW U WOULDNT BE SAYING THIS SH!T FACE TO FACE, SO IM GLAD UR DONE, BCUZ I AM TOO. SO DONT WORRY, KEEP WEARING UR INTERNET BANDANNA, SELLING UR INTERNET DRUGS, AND KEEP INTERNET THUGGIN, BCUZ MONDAY MORNING, WHEN YOU START YOUR WEEK FLIPPING THOSE BURGERS, AND TAKING THOSE DRIVE THRU ORDERS, UR REAL LIFE RESUMES
Anyone is innocent until proven guilty y'all lol! This lady obviously needs anutha field to get into, she is too old 4 da music industry. R. Kelly (i believe) is a good person, amybe he has traveled da wrong path, but hell who hasn't.
Yeah well you could start your week by wiping off your granny's face, and telling her to put her teeth back in now that Kels is done with her.
I hope you learned a lesson to not talk sh1t to people out of sheer boredom.
I also hope I have given you the courage to move out of your mama's house and go back to school to get that GED.
Flippin burgers...oooh you hurt my feelings I am crying...
You are so clever, did they teach you that in jail. Or maybe thats all you know because thats what your mom does to take care of your sorry ass.
Kelly is not in jail because the girl in the video he was screwing and pissing on will not testify against him!! I don't know if her parents were paid off not to pursue it any further but for whatever reason, the charges against him won't stay...and that is truly enough to make you sick!
R. Kelly's new music is nothing like what it used to be.. The way he came in to the game, is where he should be at now. He's got this whole thug persona going for him..I've lost a lot of respect for him..I don't know..Maybe he's going through a mid life crisis..He needs to get a grip though.
He is extremely talented but has serious issues with women, apparently young and old. I don't care how many Grammies, BET awards, MTV awards, AMA's, etc.......he collects, this does not excuse his behavior.
If Pookie in the hood gave your 14 yr old sister a golden shower, his family would be putting funds on his commissary!
I'M NOT HERE TO JUDGE R. KELLY AT ALL. I'M REALLY NOT. HOWEVER, ONE DOES HAVE TO WONDER, OUT OF ALL THE WOMEN THAT HE COULD HAVE, (SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MODELS, ENTERTAINERS, AND JUST WOMEN OVERALL OF LEGAL AGE), WHY DOES HE HAVE TO SCREW UNDERAGE GIRLS? THIS MAY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ABOVE AGE GIRL STATED IN THIS POST. I'M JUST SAYING.
I FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT HIM, THAT I FEEL ABOUT ALICIA KEYS. I JUST WANT TO HEAR THE MUSIC, I DON'T CARE TO KNOW WHO HE'S SLEEPING WITH. YET, IF IT WAS YOUR NIECE OR DAUGHTER OR LITTLE COUSIN THAT WAS SUING HIM FOR THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH, OR FOUND IN ONE OF HIS SMUTTY SEX TAPES (GETTING PISSED ON),WOULD YOU ALL BE SAYING "WELL, I DON'T CARE WHO HE SLEEPING WITH", LEAVE R. KELLY ALONE", "FOCUS ON THE MUSIC". I SURE THE HELL WOULDN'T! I WOULD PROBABLY DISREGARD HOW TALENTED HE IS, AND WOULDN'T BUY ANY MORE OF HIS ALBUMS (EVEN IF THEY WERE FIRE!). IT JUST GOES TO SHOW, THAT PEOPLE ONLY CARE ABOUT SH!T, WHEN IT'S THEM. IF IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM, WE DON'T GIVE A F**K. PLUS HE'S R. KELLY (THE KING OF R&B) RIGHT?
It has been reported from his brother to this that he wants people to lie for him. The darkness in Mr. Kelly will eventually be punished. You can count on that.
As for you fans who want to just listen to his music, how in the world can you purchase a cd and financially support a deviant?
When Whitney Houston started cussing out her concertgoers back in the day after showing up 2 hrs late, I never purchased another cd of hers. That woman didn't care about me, just the money paid to put drugs up her nose. If she rehabs, I'll support her again.
I saw that before. OMG!! I could not watch all of it. I gagged really bad. I'm glad that I was not eating something at the time. I would have threw that all up. If you look at you tube and put in 2 girls 1 cup, it shows peoples reactions to it. That sh.it is nasty!!!!
There are a lot of scumbags that make music. I think he would make better music if he was sent to prison for a while. Hell he could even cut an album from behind bars, then he would have more credibility. He could sing about prison love,bump and grinding, the mens thoia thoings.... Now I would buy that album.
WELL WELL WELL IM SO PISSED THAT I STILL DIDNT SEE HIS VIDEO WHERE HE WAS PEEING ON THE GURL WOW WELL HEY MAYBE HE DRINK TOO MUCH WATER THAT CAN HAPPEN SPECIALLY IF HE HAVE BLADER PROBLEM ALA DE KOZE PAPA !!! WELL THE GURL ENJOYED IT SO WHO CARES IT COULD BE WORST ( DIAREAH, VOMIT,HOT SHIT) LOOOOL I CANT BELIEVE IM WRITING THIS LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
O.K THAT 2 GIRLS 1 CUP SITE IS JUST NOT COOL. OMG! I'M ABOUT TO THROW UP. I CAN'T BELIEVE I LISTENED AND WENT THERE. I GUESS MY CURIOSITY IS JUST NOT COOL. OMG...I'M ABOUT TO THROW UP, 4 REAL. OMG! I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT I HAVE JUST WITNESSES. AS SOON AS THAT SH!T CAME OUT OF HER ASS AND THOSE TWO GIRLS STARTED LICKING IT, I JUST HIT THE BACKSPACE. SHE HAD DIARRHEA OR SOMETHING TOO. O.K EXCUSE ME, FOR ABOUT A WEEK Y'ALL. BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
What is up with u and my granny? I guess you have a thing for old ladies, since the young ones dont show you any attention!
And what did you teach me? I still know that your a weak,punk azz internet thug! So until you get up enough courage to talk that same sh!t ur talking in public, shut ur b!tch azz up, and keep riding kels coattails!
YOU ARE A CLOWN, AND I DONT KNOW WHY I'M WASTING MY TIME WITH UR B!TCH AZZ.
Let's see how it take for this trial to get started. I predict a court date in the year of 2020, which will then be postponed while he promotes his CD "I Got Candy In My Pocket: Get in the Car, Vol. 2". By that point in time, all parties involved in the case will be senile and thus unable to testify. Kelly will celebrate his victory by taking off his depends and pissing on the judge's head.
Oh and who are these people that think he's "so talented" and "makes good music"? Really? Seriously? I'll admit he's made one or two non-cringe worthy songs, but some of us are acting like he's the next Marvin. (Not to mention the fact that if I ever see him in the flesh, I'm going to kick him in his taint for subjecting me to the sh!t fest that was "Feeling on Your Booty." Screw p!ssing on kids, he deserves the chair for making that crappy song.)
ANOTHER BULLSHIT STORY.
HIM AND EVERYBODY ELSE KNOWS THAT IF HE DOES ONE WRONG THING THAT HIS BAIL WOULD BE REVOKED.
SO SINCE HES STILL FREE I DOUBT HE DID ANYTHING ILLEGAL.
AND SHE RESIGNED IN AUGUST, BUT THIS IS NOW NEWS, NOW THAT HIS TOUR HAS STARTED. (SUSPECT AS HELL)
MRS DANIELS NEEDS TO STAY PROFESSIONAL LIKE SHE CLAIMS TO BE AND LEAVE THIS ALONE.
Okay idoits, it has he assaulted her and that does not have to mean sexual, it could mean physical assault. It is assault if you spit on someone
...smh at you dummies.
THANKS FOR POINTING THAT OUT TO THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW THAT THERE ARE MORE ASSAULTS OTHER THAN SEXUAL OUT THERE....
It's true!!! Mr. Kelly did assault Mrs. Daniels a few months back. She has always maintained her professionalism & protected him while representing him for 14 yrs!
And even now, in the midst of the assault she did NOT link any information about ASSAULT incident to the press. She only stated that they are no longer associated wit R. Kelly. Dispite what ppl think, Daniels and hubby George have had a reputation in Chicago and the music industry wayyyyyyyy before their association w/ R. Kelly. They were no Welfare recipients!!! Both had solid careers before she took him on as a client!!!
But R. Kelly fanatics wouldn't know about that b/c they think everyone is out to get him, everytime bs comes up surrounding dudes name!!!
WTF has money got to do wit the Daniels case? Nothing!!!
Talented musically he may be, but R. Kelly is a dummy when it comes professionalism & legal issues, and the man has serious anger & emotional problems.
First he jumps his wife [who is NOT WIT HIM & WHOM HAVE AGREED TO MAKE ONLY PUBLIC APPEARANCE WIT R. KELLY, TO KEEP THE MEDIA OFF HER BACK dispite what internet pics you fanatics may post of them together! She has been advised to stay married to him till the his child pornography case is settled. Andrea Kelly is the smart Kelly btw the two. She won't have to sit on a witness stand if their still married]. And what about when R. Kelly had his bodyguards jump his play uncle, and now he attacks Mrs. Daniels.
Seems like the only one doing the turning on people is, Mr. Kelly himself!!!
Daniels has been the ONLY solid soldier in this fool's camp from the jump!
He has f'd-up majorly!
Every artist knows, you never assault/insult the PR hands that has kept your ass wiped clean & all your secrets hidden for many years. Especially when ya' got such a high-ass, controversial, profile as his!!
If she is every called or forced on a witness stand, she can bury his ass.
Do you R. Kelly fanatics have any ideal how ya' boy is sabbotoging his career? The fool is setting another pattern against himself wit his violent rampages.
I spoke wit Mrs. Daniels at the beginning of R. Kelly's scandal, and she was ADVISED, not the same as a gagged order by the court, not to speak on Kelly's video tape scandal!
Well, I wonder if she will spill the beans now if ever summons by the prosecutors?
Some of you are on some real simple simon shit. He is not a musical innovator, he does not write or sing songs that change the world, he is a simple azz R@B singer who was very lucky. And who takes advantage of LITTLE GIRLS. Beats his wife. And apparently terrorizes his own team. As Huey from Boondocks would day "Have some damn standards people!!!!" If R Kelly were white that nigga would be under the jail by now with sore ashy lips and loose stools.
WELL WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE R KELLY SITUATION IS THAT TODAY IS SUNDAY AND IM LOKING FOR MY REMOTE CONTROL FOR MY TV I REMEMBER OF PUTTING IT NEXT TO MY RED SHOE THAT WAS BY A PIECE OF PAPER NOW IM WONDERING HOW IM I GONNA WATCH TV TONIGHT HMM OR MAYBE SHOULD I LISTEN TO MY RADIO ALTHOUGH THE BATTERIES NEED TO BE RECHARGE HMM YOU KNOW WHAT VIVA LAS VEGAS ELVIS WAS GOOD!!!!!!!!lol BON BAGAY
