Kelly, how you doing? Cool I guess. Just want to know, please. Why did you write Whitney that song -' I look to you'? Did she say anything out of this world to you, I mean frankly men, did she say she was gonna die? I am just really giving that song a thought and I now know something really strange about that song. You wrote it for her, couldn't you have helped her, point her to the right direction. She was suffering and she just couldn't take it anymore. I feel terrible knowing this now. I COULD HAVE REALLY PRAYED FOR HER, I MEAN REALLY REALLY PRAYED AND GOD WOULD HAVE HEARD ME. Kelly men, did you know what I know now then?

Hey Kells,
I am a huge fan of yours man, from Gary, Indiana,
and I started to just not write because I know you probably get a million fan emails a day, but I wanted you to know that you are a deep inspiration despite whatever the news tries to dispute and bring negative attention to you man. I believe you and even if you do have flaws, its like you always said in your songs, pray for you, don't judge and criticize you. I'm praying for you brother I to lost my mom, and I felt like my fucking world ended the day she died. I don't give a fucking care about anything. And I knew I was raised better, but I just didn't give a fuck. I felt like she was the only reason for ding good, and if life was fucked up enough to take her, then hell, the rest of the world will get whatever they deserve. Listening to your music kept me grounded man, and as you go through your own trial and tribulations man, I just want you to know that it's o.k. to be humane man and shit we all have problems, don't let them fool you. You are cool Kells, keep being you man, and keep pouring your soul into the music. I love you man as a man and a brother and thank you for everything you have given 'US." Love you bruh!!!

The best of all times, this news hurts my heart because to see how people who you trusted turn on you in this way, sad real sad. As you stated in your recent song ‘ I admit it’ my heart just hurts to know that you went through all this hurt and pain but managed to keep smiling. God got your back and your true fans got you too. Love you. Keep that good music coming

I know you've probably received a million e-mails, but despite any and everything I'm a true fan of yours. People make mistakes everyday and if you ever made a mistake oh well there is no reason for everybody to be coming for you. You've made dozens of hits you've made hits for people and had them having #1 records and now because some women have spoke out against you and made you out to be a monster after all the years they've claimed you done this that and the third, I mean why now? All of them are grown they left from whatever was going on and they did it on their own you didn't make them stay it was their choice, if you were this big bad monster they could've should've and would've spoke up before now! Your ex wife was on a reality tv show she NEVER once brought up all the things she claimed you did to her she was crying about not being able to ride on a private jet and all that materialistic stuff. She had the nerves to get remarried on national tv didn't take his last name on top of the marriage didn't last for 2 seconds so maybe her problem is just her! I grew up loving your music and I'm going to ALWAYS continue listening to your music! I LOVE ME SO R KELLY AND WHOEVER GOT A PROBLEM WITH IT I DON'T CARE AT ALL! #TEAM RKELLY

Some people are just embattled. The Lord God is saying come to me and I will give you rest. You have a gift, you are blessed. God wants you to live right and nobody needs to tell you what it means because I think you had a praying momma. Then the enemy will have to get off your back, old things have passed away and all things have become new. I am praying for you, God has laid you on my heart and I am in prayer. I wish I could address some of the things you sang about in your song , I admit but this is not the forum for that. I am praying the best for you. God’s blessings.

Everyone wanna blame R Kelly for these things that happened but it is was that bad where are the parents!!?? Ijs.. I'm a woman and a big fan of him but at the same time I'ma be real!! Everybody played a part in this and it needs to be addressed. They were all good when he was spending that money on them.. Now u a victim! Stop MF playing.. take responsibility for your own actions and on it!! Yes he may have been the worst man ever after the fact that he didn't want u no more!! But I don't think he's that monster!! All the victims wanna be so innocent.. I'm lmao because that's not what it was.. but as far as minors!!. Where they mama at though?? She should have known what her daughter was doing.. She need to be right beside him if it's that crusial.. You should have known where yo MF child was at!! Your fault.. sorry.. now u no.. a man is exactly what he is . A MF man.. Be a mama and know what the fucks going on with ya MF kids.. he ain't the only blame..

R. Kelly, I pray that God allow this message to reach you. I am more than just a fan i am your sister in Christ. I have to say you are such a strong man and i truly admire you. I have learned that silence and prayer is the best way to fight any battle and watching you go through the public your trails and tribulations and never once have you replied or gave any energy to the negativity thrown at you in the publics eye. That was actually very inspirational to me, so I try to do the same when im going through. You know sometimes God has to disrupt our life because He needs our full attention, He need us to stop be still and have an one on one conversation with Him so we can stay on the right path. Sometimes He allow things to interrupt our busy life to bring our focus back on Him & know that we still need Him (You know God is a jealous God) so He can take us to what He has planned for us. August 17th 2018 you came to St. Louis, MO I was having the worst day nothing was going my way, i was having the hardest time finding an outfit and my car strart acting up and i left my phone in my friends brother car. When you came on stage you explained to us the issues you were having back stage & they told you to keep it clean, they had christian family members out there & you said to them, I KNOW GOD TOO. So heres where my prayers were answered, since i could not find an outfit and i was running out of time, i just through on a black tank top & my green camouflage pants, just to end up surprisingly finally meeting you in person and dressed just like you. I was one of the last five people in the room to meet you and take a picture (that was one of the best days of my life) meeting you was the silver lining of my day, even if it was for just 10 seconds. I heard your record sales went up since that lifetime program aired, See what people are trying to use to destroy you God used it to restore you. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. As a child of God, we must not judge one another and he who has not sin shall cast the first stone. No sin is greater than another. I have to say I did not entertain the allegations back in the early 2000s and i do not entertain them now. You are a very talented, gifted, intelligent, handsome, successful, inspirational young man. You are God's son and He will never fail you, just stay in prayer (Prayer Changes, in my R. Kelly voice) and stay in the presence of God. I also hear that other celebrities are also making their comments and jumping on the band wagon, forgetting YOU are the reason why they have hit songs and albums and a career. But some of these people are the same people that also wants to preach about Black Lives Matters and we as African Americans need to stick together stop belittling and putting each other down and when we see one of our black sisters and brothers life taking a turn for the worst, we need to help them, by keeping them uplifted & encouraged (but I guess YOU are a white american), whenever things happen in our lives we need to take responsiblity for our part ask God to move us forward, but since we live in a money hunger, selfish, victimized, follower (no mind of their own) world its easy for people to turn on one another in a heart beat for money/fame/attention. It's so much that we as fans hear about celebrities like (murder, cheating, raping, gun violence, drugs & physical abuse) but whats crazy, me as a fan, i don't about what you all do in your personal life i dont know you personally and hell these crimes are being committed everyday all day. People that make a career out of trying to destroy someone else's career, reputation and character may have some more deeper issues going on. I was told that God's word said to pray for your enemies and the battle is not yours, its His. Kelly I pray that you will over come this and that God heal and mend you and your siblings (Bruce, Carey & Theresa) relationship as well as if any distance or lack of communication with your children. I pray that any bitterness, hurt or brokeness your ex-wife Andrea is holding in her heart be released, so that she can have a peacful life, I ask God to lift you up in His glory, that you have a heart of forgiveness and understanding as He forgives us, I ask that Lord forgive the Kelly family for any malice and strongholds in their hearts thats causing them to turn against each other due to brokeness, hurt, pain & emptiness, surround them with Angels of healing, forgiving, convictions, understanding, breakthroughs, love and peace. Bring the Kelly family to heal privately in an intimate setting with each other open each and everyone of their hearts to forgive each other. Father they need your embrace, your word, your covetiness in Jesus name I pray your will be done. Amen. Remember Kelly forgiving is not for those who hurt us, but for ourselves to help us move forward & have peace. We must also forgive ourselves. Just a little thing i do for myself, if you would like to try it. I do a self evaluations, i write down everything that is hindering me i say a prayer asking God to remove it and cleanse my heart align my plans with His i burn the paper up saying Father I cast these strongholds over my life into the sea to never return again. Robert Sylvester Kelly YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR! God is trying to tell you something (LISTEN), do those words sound fimilar? They should you wrote them. Uplifting sings (Close by Marvin Sapp, Necessary by Fantasia, prayer change by You, the storm is over by YOU, heaven i need a hug by YOU, trade in my life by YOU, a sinners prayer by deitrick haddon & LeAndria Johnson, Jesus on youtube worship with the Greater Allen Cathedral praise team) these are just a few of my go to songs. Kels I love you for you i dont know you personally just from your music and your book Soulacoaster. Stay strong, keep your head up, Keep writing amazing hit records, Stay in Gods presence & PRAYER is your biggest defense, let God handle whats to big for you. Be still and Be quiet, listen for God's answer, He may come to you in your dreams or He may even send your mom. I LOVE YOU CONQUEROR! Happy Belately B-Day. Stay Blessed. Hope to meet you again one day (longer than 10 minutes...lol)

You have a place in Gods kingdom, Your song There He Is bought me through a dark time. I do not know what is going on in your life but please turn to God with your whole heart
Consider what Paul said
Philippians 3:8,12
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
Acts 3:19-21
Remember everyone has sin so we must remember the scripture below
19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

If you dont have anything else in life you have hope and the promises of God please continue to believe in the face of adversity because it builds your faith. Remember God never promised we would be without trouble Jesus said that we are born into trouble,, but he gives us the strengthen to go through.
