By now, most of the world has heard about the many allegations of sexual abuse trailing embattled singer, R. Kelly. From sex slave stories to abusing and molesting multiple women as well as underage girls, Lifetime’s docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly” is one that has left many in both shock and disgust.
In a twist to the story, Kelly’s unusual attraction to underage girls may not have been a fault of his as he has alluded to being abused by someone close to him in times past. Now in an expository interview, Carey Kelly, the estranged brother of the singer has opened up as to who abused R. Kelly.
In the viral interview, Carey reveals that their older sister, Theresa is responsible for the abuse. He said she abused him and R. Kelly when she was 16-years-old at and that the abuse went on for over a period of six years. Making the allegation even more shocking is that Carey was just six-years-old at the time while R. Key himself was ten-years-old.
Carey opened up on “Unwine With Tasha K” about how she would punish them for flimsy reasons, The punishment would be for them to stay inside the house with her and not be allowed to go out and play with the others. He said his sister made sure to punish only one brother at a time so that while others were out playing, one was inside with her.
“She just took my head and put it down in her private part. She told me to lick her private part. Of course, I didn’t know what I was doing at six years old. She was like, ‘stick your tongue out, stick your tongue out, lick it, lick it, lick it hard, lick it fast.’ And then she started giving me oral sex with her mouth. So she turned around and laid me down and she sat on me. And she took her hand and she grabbed my private part and she put it in.”
He also said he hasn’t spoken with his sister since their mother died a few years back adding that he never told his mom about the abuse because he didn’t want her to look at him as if he had done something wrong.
Carey went on to call out other members of his family during the interview. He said that his brother (R. Kelly) is “a monster”, his other brother (Bruce Kelly) is on drugs. (Bruce is currently in prison). Carey continues, saying that his sister is a molester, his niece is a “hoocie” and his nephew a molester too. The only person he spoke positively about was his mother.

Just yesterday, Nick Cannon who is a past collaborator with R. Kelly took to Instagram to issue an unabashed statement on the music industry’s treatment of women and the danger that arises when one turns a blind eye.
His lengthy post reads:
#TBT After much self reflection and meditation, I have to be one of the first to admit that in my past I’ve DEFINITELY turned a blind eye to a lot of darkness in this industry.
Let’s stop beating around the bush and call it what it is. This entire industry was established and built by evil and predatorily spirits and male chauvinistic behaviour.
And since the recent media outrage pertaining to @RKELLY I have realised that the REAL issue at hand is the ultimate lack of care and disrespect for our QUEENS.
For far too long we have treated women like second class citizens, when in actuality they are the source, our core, and the Superior beings. But our insecurities, Egos, and lack of love has tried to prove otherwise.
Therefore we have SEVERAL cases where we allow entertainers, executives, and every day individuals abuse and mistreat our life bearers and beautiful equals.
It is no secret how men have misused their power to manipulate young emerging pop stars to seasoned hollywood actresses and everyone in between.
I have personally witnessed it and will no longer be silent about it. It’s not dry snitching, it’s a paradigm shift.
I’m not judging ANY man for his past or his private actions because I too am a guilty sinner of the blatant disrespect even in some of the statements in the song above.
But From Individuals like Les Moonves, Harvey Weinstein, ?Steven Tyler?, R. Kelly, Elvis and others, I must say we have to deal with this sickness head on.
The real leaders and Bosses must step up and be MEN! And I will be one of the first to say on behalf of all men, I am Sorry. Please consider an advocate, ally and student that needs guidance in an industry that was designed to take advantage of women.
Let’s change it ALL immediately. And call it all to the table for our ignorance, wrong doings and disrespect.
I apologise my Queens.
