Summary
In November 2000 DeRogatis, a Chicago journalist and music critic, received an anonymous fax that alleged R. Kelly had a problem with 'young girls.' DeRogatis thought breaking the story would have an impact. Instead, Kelly's career flourished. After eighteen years of tenacious journalism, he tells the story of Kelly's career, his own investigations, and brings the story up to the moment when things finally seem to have changed. The result is a darkly riveting account of the life and actions of R. Kelly, and their horrible impact on dozens of girls. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
In November 2000, Chicago journalist and music critic Jim DeRogatis received an anonymous fax that alleged R. Kelly had a problem with “young girls.” Weeks later, DeRogatis broke the shocking story, publishing allegations that the R&B superstar and local hero had groomed girls, sexually abused them, and paid them off. DeRogatis thought his work would have an impact. Instead, Kelly’s career flourished. DeRogatis's work tells the story of Kelly’s career, DeRogatis’s investigations, and the world in which the two crossed paths, and brings the story up to the moment when things finally seem to have changed. Decades in the making, this is an outrageous, darkly riveting account of the life and actions of R. Kelly, and their horrible impact on dozens of girls, by the only person to tell it
