As the world looks forward to the second project Lifetime is launching to shed light on R. Kelly’s abuse of girls and women, a protest is scheduled to take place outside the property the performer is said to be “housing” his sex cult victims in this Saturday.

Sparkle Niece’s Father was R. Kelly’s bass player. Who saw the tape with his daughter and Kelly — father denied and still continued to play for Kelly throughout the trial.
They sold that baby’s soul for wealth. #SurvivingRKelly

Escapees reveal that “members” of the cult are forced to engage in demeaning sex acts and are threatened with violence if they do not comply.
In one case, one young lady claimed she has proof that Kelly and his camp considered killing her after she took one of his sordid sexual abuse tapes out of his home. Tapes, which see the performer urinate on a child and abuse others.
There are plenty adults who were violated as kids and didn’t grow up to be ephebophile or a paedophile. Please stop trying to push the narrative that everyone who has a traumatic childhood grows up to be like R Kelly.

Now viewers of the Lifetime project ‘Surviving R. Kelly’, who feel the authorities aren’t doing enough to bring him to justice, are taking matters into their own hands by posting his new address online and arranging a protest they hope will stand as the first step towards dismantling his “house of horrors.”
Here it is: The address of this studio where R Kelly has been abusing these women is 219 N Justine St, Chicago, IL 60607. The owner of the property is Midwest Commercial Funding. One of the owners property can be reached on [email protected] #SurvivingRKelly

The Facebook page created to organise the protest explains…
There is a long history, dating back to slavery of our Black women and girls being hypersexualized, silenced, and targeted by sexual violence, as well as abuse. The stories of Black women and girls are often never heard and when they are, victim blaming and shaming occur.
The plight of our Black women and girls is currently on full display as the #MuteRKelly movement has led to a spike in the artist’s music sales. Apologists and supporters of Robert Kelly are complicit in his attacks and sexual abuse of underage Black girls and women.
As a Black man, I believe it is of the upmost importance that other Black men and all allies of Black women and girls take a stand and put an end to R. Kelly’s reign. We can no longer accept and ignore the plight that many of our women face at the hands of powerful men with influence.
We must continue to apply pressure as the organizers of the #MuteRKelly campaign has in ending R. Kelly’s ability to generate cash and hold property that allow him to carry out and cover up his crimes.
We are asking all who stand against R. Kelly and stand against sexual assault, rape, abuse, pedophilia, & the overall toxic masculinity that promotes such cultures to join us this Saturday @ 10 am in front of R. Kelly’s Chicago studio to send clear messages that he does not represent Chicago and he will no longer be protected in Chicago or anywhere. We also want to demand that the building’s owner (Midwest Commercial Funding) immediately engage in further efforts to break whatever contract is held with R. Kelly as this building has been identified as a location of abuse. Any artist, concert promoter, DJ, influencer etc. also know, that the #MuteRKelly movement will continue and you will be called out for any complicity in his actions!
R. Kelly must be held accountable and needs professional help. But, more importantly the Black women and girls who are victims and survivors of his reign of terror must be believed, supported, and know that we as a commUNITY stand with them in calling for justice!
Let this action be part of greater actions in empowering not only our commUNITY, not only Black women and girls, but all commUNITYs and all women and girls in knowing they are not along and this will not be accepted. We must be purposeful in what we are teaching are next generations that the lives of women, particularly Black women must be valued over talent and money!
The protest will take place at 10 a.m on Saturday and end at 2 p.m.
Sources connected to the case tell us the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has opened an investigation into allegations made against the singer in “Surviving R. Kelly.” We’re told the probe was launched over the past few days as a direct result of what ‘Surviving’ depicted.
We’re told investigators have been reaching out to several survivors featured in the TV project. We have confirmed investigators reached out to Asante McGee, one of the women who allegedly escaped R. Kelly’s home.
