Akon He says R. Kelly He needs to reevaluate all of his life options after being convicted in his federal sex crimes trial … but he also believes there is still a path to redemption for Kelly.
We called the LAX artist and asked him about the guilty verdict in Kelly’s case, and if there’s anything coming back from that. Akon says Kelly needs to do some deep reflection and talk to God.
You will have plenty of time for that conversation. The disgraced singer is watching 10 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced next year.
And while the jury found Kelly guilty on all 9 federal charges, including sex crimes, kidnapping, human trafficking, extortion, and obstruction of justice, this does not mean that her life is over … in Akon’s eyes, as less.
He tells us that even Kelly has the right to try to fix things with his victims. He also offered some wise advice for those survivors.
Of course, the singer’s legal battles are just beginning. Kelly still faces another federal trial in Chicago … and two other state trials on similar charges.
So is it time for the public to cancel Kelly’s hit songs, once and for all, now that he’s been convicted? Akon thinks about that too.
