American singer, R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years imprisonment on June 29, 2022 for racketeering and other crimes.
According to prosecutors, he used his celebrity status and wealth to lure women, as well as underage girls and boys, for sex.
The sentencing in Brooklyn marks the culmination of a stunning downfall for Mr. Kelly, 55, who falls from a superstar hit maker, known as the king of R&B, to a shunned artist whose musical legacy has now been stained.
Recall that in 2021, the disgraced singer was found guilty of sexually abusing women, boys and girls for decades.
One of his victims was R&B singer Aaliyah, who Kelly illegally wed in a Chicago hotel room in 1994 when she was 15 years old.
