The New York Post’s Page Six dug into R. Kelly’s history of out-of-court settlements involving sexual misconduct allegations and discovered that not all the settlements were made public.

While Kelly’s most high-profile court cast was his infamous child pornography indictment in 2002, Page Six is reporting that Kelly was accused of sexual harassment as recently as 2010 by a 36-year-old housekeeper, but he settled the case out of court for $100,000 to avoid litigation.

According to sources, the woman worked for Kelly for about a year, beginning in 2008 when the crooner allegedly talked dirty to, and groped, his employee.

A source close to Kelly further told Page Six that there’s been discord in the singer’s inner circle lately, and further secrets about him are “starting to float to the surface about the millions he paid out over the years to a wide variety of women.”

Kelly was acquitted on the child porn charges. But veteran music writer and Kelly chronicler Jim DeRogatis said last year that there have been “dozens of girls — not one, not two, dozens — with harrowing lawsuits.”

He added in a Village Voice interview: “I think in the history of rock ‘n’ roll, rock music or pop culture people misbehaving and behaving badly sexually . . . rare is the amount of evidence compiled against anyone apart from R. Kelly.”

  1. I am not the least bit surprised to learn of more allegations surfacing about him. Even before I learned that he was a sexual predator especially of underage girls, I didn’t like him. He’s talented, but he’s also creepy and vulgar, and I have long felt that way about him. As long as people don’t hold him accountable for his harmful actions, he will continue his predatory ways. The disgraceful way some black women, especially as mothers, defended him and ignored the pain of his victims is proof positive that there are some women among us who have internalized misogynoir, which is a misogyny specifically directed at black women and girls. No one who defends him would be defending him if he had been a predatory white man of young black girls, or even black women. They would be calling for his head. I suspect unless he is stopped in some way, he will victimize other girls and/or women, because he has some deep-seated problems. I understand that he was molested himself as a kid, which explains a lot. He’s not the only one with such problems, but he is the most publicized sexual predator who happens to be black.

  2. The ewwww factor is so high here. Even before any allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced about this mongrel, I didn’t like him. Never spent a dime on his product.

  3. I said it. on said:

    Who cares? Please don’t mention anyone past 18 and older putting up with nonsense. Adults make choices, good or bad.
