Last week, R. Kelly found himself kicked to the curb by his lawyer, publicist and assistant as they, fearing what their association with the star would do to their careers, pulled the plugs on their working relationship with him.
Today, details on the singer’s frantic efforts to pull himself out of the pit of despair he has fallen into have surfaced online.
Full report below…
Kelly is accused of targeting, grooming and molesting several minors (his own goddaughter and the late singer Aaliyah included) and saw his woes reach new lows this year when a teenage girl sought legal help after he poisoned her body with a sexually transmitted disease.
As murmurs surrounding the possibility of more accusations reached boiling point, several members of his camp cut all ties with him forcing him to function without their support.
Today, it has emerged that he contacted two crisis management firms, 5WPR in NYC and Sitrick And Company in L.A, and begged them to support him as he seeks a way out of the chaos.
‘The Blast‘ reports…
A source in the celebrity PR world tells us most people will be scared to represent him in the current social climate, especially considering his long history of accusations which includes a child pornography trial.
It isn’t all bad news for the performer’s remaining fans though. For, he is said to be recording new music in his hometown of Chicago.
