RnB divas, Robert Kelly and Usher Raymond, have found themselves simultaneously trending across any kind of media for the first time since their 2007 hit ‘Same Girl’. Unfortunately for the once acceptable vocal duo, however, separate allegations have surfaced over questionable activities that had the internet dragging your favorite (creepy) throwback uncles.
So Usher got herpies, R. Kelly has a cult, Kevin Hart cheating on his preganut wife, and a carrot is the president?! Y'all 2017 too much 💀💀

The Real Sister Wives of Robert Kelly
There are 3 things you could say about R. Kelly. He can sing. He can make a hit. He likes inappropriate relationships with girls. From marrying a 15 year old Aaliyah to his 2002 underage sex tape scandal, R. Kelly has been through this (very problematic) storyline time and time again. (Even though everyone seems to forget every time because he gave y’all ‘Step in the Name of Love’ and ‘Trapped in the Closet’.
This week fresh allegations surfaced from a Buzzfeed news article that Robby was holding six women in his Chicago and Atlanta properties against their will and was controlling every aspect of their lives.
According to Rolling Stone, “One woman who was once in Kelly’s entourage said, “You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom … [Kelly] is a master at mind control. … He is a puppet master.”
Kelly also allegedly videotapes his sexual encounters with the women – many of them young (though of legal age) singers who are lured to Bobby’s under the guise of professional relationship – which the singer then shows to his male friends. The singer also reportedly issues the women new cellphones and forbids them from contacting their families.”
Since the story broke, Kelly’s camp has denied the allegations.
“Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him,” Kelly’s lawyer Linda Mensch said in a statement. “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”
Who knows what’s really going on down at the chocolate factory. As soon as this story hit the internet, our Freeish Fam had all the feelings:
#RKelly is that creepy uncle who:
1) Stares at ur female cousins and says they growing nicely
2) Your mom dont want u alone with.

Let It Burn: The Usher Raymond Confessions
Let it Burn. U got it bad. That’s what it’s made for. Confessions.
Now that we’ve gotta all of the double entendre song titles out of the way, Usher’s business is in the news this week. Radar Online first reported that the 38 year old allegedly paid a former lover 1.1 million because she claimed he gave here herpes. Rumors quickly swirled that woman was Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster. This presents a bigger issue for Raymond because according to California state law, where Usher resides, “it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an sexually transmitted disease (STD).”
The Daily Mail claimed, “The performer later denied being a carrier of the non-lethal condition, despite ‘greenish discharge’ from his penis, court documents say. ‘Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,’ the legal docs stated. The plaintiff was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.”
This is far outside of my business, but the internet had time for all of it:
Y'all cutting Usher's ass but have never been tested a day in your life 🤦🏽♂️

The reason Usher got herpes is because him and R-Kelly shared the "Same Girl" pic.twitter.com/3f9vdYPqlE

All in all this has been a rough week for R&B. Y’all better keep a close eye on Sisqo and Tevin Campbell. I don’t need another R&B diva making another bad decision.
