In some of the least surprising news of the day, 49-year-old R&B legend R. Kelly now has a 19-year-old girlfriend. I debated whether I should even post this or not because I’m sure most reasonable people assumed R. Kelly had a girlfriend much younger than him.
R. Kelly has been creeping on young girls for decades now, so at least this time it’s with a girl who is legal. And I’m not going to player hate because the 19-year-old is an absolute babe.
*Thinks about it a little more* Okay fine, it’s pretty messed up.

R. Kelly was spotted Friday night at Atlanta nightclub The Gold Room with the girl, a model named Halle Calhoun. Clearly R. Kelly’s advice “Don’t take no chick to the club when you just met her” doesn’t apply when you are the king of R&B. The two are apparently dating.
The Twitter response today was on point.
R. Kelly is trending for exactly the reason you would expect
