R. Kelly Showered with Not Guilty Verdict

R. Kelly has been acquitted of 14 counts of child pornography.

The 41-year-old rapper was first charged back in 2002.

The besieged singer’s innocence has been established after six years of convoluted court debate.

Sly and opportunistic lawyers argued that the Grammy winner—who reportedly married deceased R&B singer Aaliyah when she was 15-years-old—was the object of an extortion plot.

The argument, with a sidebar of mistaken identity, was sufficient to convince jurors to set the Ignition singer free.

Both the so-called victim, who was alleged to be 13 years old at the time the explicit golden-shower video was made, and Kelly have long denied that they were the individuals seen on the tape.

Now the singer can resume his pre-trial life of making videos in which he simply spews champagne on grown women suggestively. Real Talk.
