He hit on somebody’s daughter.It's sad but this is now my first reaction to stuff like this, too. I'm not defending R Kelly - don't know him personally, didn't listen to his music - from what little I know about this it seems an open and shut case and he's guilty. The question is, though, why him? Why this? The whole media industry seems so lurid whenever you see any given individual getting in trouble for what is standard operating procedure you start to wonder what caused him in particular to get thrown under the bus. Did he cut in line with a 14 year old that some other, higher up dude felt protective about? Just protecting (wittingly or not) even bigger fish? Etc.
