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.
As expected, fans on social media have completely freaked out, with some expressing their shock and others seeing the funny side.
