R. Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of 4 females. 3 of them had been stated to be underage, Kimmel noted.
“His profession is on the line, his freedom is on the line. And, so, for what ever explanation, either R, and/or the people today who represent him, believed it would be a very good notion to place him on Television,” Kimmel stated.
Amongst the points the comedian stated he discovered, “R. Kelly can objectify girls of any age!” noting the moment the singer assured King he would socialize with older girls as well, “if the body’s tight.”
“He’s gonna make a excellent President 1 day,” Kimmel snarked.
On major of it “being a show of instability from start out to finish, it was also perhaps the weirdest McDonald’s industrial ever,” Kimmel stated. When King asked why he headed straight to McDonald’s just after receiving out on bail, McDonald’s getting 1 of his alleged preferred pickup locations. Kelly told Gayle he loved his mother and, for him, “The M stands for mom.”

“His defense is essentially, ‘How come Tony Bennett never ever got accused of operating a sex cult?’” Kimmel stated, hoping Kelly decides to represent himself at trial “because that would be remarkable.”
Kelly’s a cost-free man just after an anonymous celebration paid the $161,000 in kid help he owed his ex-wife.
