Petition underway to cancel R. Kelly’s Chicago Performance





Illiterate predator Robert Kelly (also known as R. Kelly, the Pied Piper, that man who wrote “Ignition”) is scheduled to perform at concert event known as the Love Jam. The concert will also feature Xscape, K. Michelle, and Lyfe Jennings, but Kelly is billed as the headliner. Love Jam is set to take place on May 5th at the UIC Pavilion. The Pavilion is owned and operated by the University of Illinois at Chicago. (In case you forgot, Donald Trump was scheduled to speak here during his campaign, but amid protests, he backed out.) The event is not sponsored by the university but it still can be promoted on the university’s campus.

One campus organization, the Campus Advocacy Network, has drafted a petition to get the event cancelled because Kelly’s extended history of preying on young black girls. He has been known to lurk after girls in Hyde Park, local high schools and shopping malls in Chicago.

The university is home to a very diverse student body with enrollment of black students increasing every year, topping about an 8% enrollment of the total student body.



- Married Aaliyah when she was 15 years old by forging a document saying she was of age
- Has settled many cases out of court after being accused of having sex with teenagers
- Was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008, stemming from a video in which he performed sexual acts on a 14 year old girl
- This year a criminal complaint was filed after a young woman accused him of transmitting a sexually transmitted disease after grooming her from 14 years old for his alleged sex cult
