R. Kelly On Stage

Kellz is facing some heat.

R. Kelly is currently causing a stir on social media over his alleged new relationship with a teenager. 

The 49-year-old R&B singer, who has faced numerous sexual assault charges throughout his career, is reportedly seeing 19-year-old model Halle Calhoun.

The 30 year age difference between them means Calhoun wasn’t even born when R. Kelly’s iconic single ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ was released. 

However the couple were recently spotted together on a night out in Atlanta.
