R. Kelly is Dating a 19-Year Old Because Of Course He Is

According to various outlets, this 19-year old is dating R. Kelly.

The relationship would be newsworthy regardless of the singer's past, considering his age alone: R. Kelly is 49 years old.

But it's impossible NOT to consider R. Kelly's past because... holy crap, is it one shady past!

And, holy crap, does it involve some seriously shady stuff with some seriously young women!

First, Vibe magazine reported back in the day (although it was never confirmed) that R. Kelly had illegally married the late singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was 15 and he was 27.

But then, of course, there was that videotape in 2002.

You know the one, right? The one that depicted R. Kelly urinating on a 13-year old girl?

The singer was arrested for this alleged act and brought to trial on 14 felony sex charges.

However, he was found not guilty.

Police in Florida also tried to pursue other pornography charges against Kelly. But a judge tossed these attempts, saying the evidence was obtained illegally.

So R. Kelly was a free man.

But almost no one out there doesn't believe the guy is one sick mothereffer.

Which brings us back to him dating a 19-year old.

After Kelly and Calhoun were spotted at an Atlanta nightclub and after the above photo surfaced on Instagram, Twitter users went off on the artist for basically being a disgusting dirtbag.

“R. Kelly’s albums are older than his girlfriend,” wrote one witty (and accurate!) user, while another added:

“R. Kelly is trending for exactly what you’d think.”

Given the R&B star’s history, another chimed in with the following:

“No one is shocked that R. Kelly’s girlfriend is 19 years old. No one.”

Not exactly the wittiest Tweet of all-time, but it still felt worth mentioning.

"R. Kelly is the Woody Allen of black people," wrote another critic, while still another couldn't resist writing:

"49 yr old R. Kelly is dating a 19 yr old. She’s about 5 years older than most girls he dates, so Kelly considers her a cougar."

We don't blame you if you aren't laughing over these jokes.

Shaking one's head in sadness and fear may be a more appropriate response, really.
