Recently, Halle Calhoun, who is R. Kelly's former girlfriend, made a few public statements claiming that the disgraced singer had physically attacked and abused her while they were still a couple.
In 2017, when Calhoun was about 19-years-old, she was living with R. Kelly. One night she went to one of his concerts to support and cheer on her boyfriend. When Kelly's performance was completed, he came to see her backstage. Apparently, that is when things between the couple took a turn for the worst. Kelly accused Calhoun of looking at another man, creating a situation that escalated, according to TMZ.
Calhoun admits she became angry first because the accusations were not true and Kelly continued to instigate. So, she made the first move and shoved him away from her. Kelly was quick to retaliate and pulled at clothing she had on around her neck. Calhoun was wearing her favorite necklace, a cross pendant that belonged to a family member, and Kelly yanked at her neck hard enough to break the necklace. Then, he threw her petite frame into a wall. Several people were present when the fight happened, with witnesses that included Jocelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, according to TMZ.
