Akon said R. Kelly must re-evaluate all of his life choices after being convicted in his federal sex crimes trial … but he also believes there is still a road to redemption for Kelly.
We had the artist at LAX and asked him what the guilty verdict in the Kelly case was, and if there was a return of that. Akon says Kelly needs to think deeply and talk to God.
He will have plenty of time for this conversation. The disgraced singer is watching 10 years to life in prison when he is sentenced next year.
And, although the jury found Kelly guilty of all 9 federal counts – including sex crimes, kidnapping, human trafficking, racketeering, and obstruction of justice – that doesn’t mean her life is over… in Akon’s eyes, at least.
He tells us that even Kelly has a right to try to make things right with his victims. He also offered wise advice to these survivors.
Of course, the singer’s legal battles are only just beginning. Kelly still faces another federal lawsuit in Chicago … and 2 more state lawsuits on similar charges.
So, is it time for the public to cancel Kelly’s hits once and for all, now that he’s been sentenced? Akon also has some ideas on this.
