R&B singers are usually known for their hit love songs, but recently a few artists have been in the news for something ELSE aside from MUSIC!

Lets just say after a series of cult accusations to transgender extortions, these three R&B dudes are starting to look a little crazy!

Last month R. Kelly was accused of holding multiple young women as sex prisoners.

According to reporter Jim Derogatis’ Buzzfeed, one of the mothers of the alleged hostages says she hasn’t seen her daughter since December 1st, 2016, stating, “It was as if she was brainwashed. [She] looked like a prisoner – it was horrible”. R. Kelly has denied all allegations towards any sexual cult activities and hopes to clear his name. One of the women told TMZ, “I’m happy where I’m at, and everything is okay with me…I’ve never been held hostage or anything of that nature.”

The star recently hired Bill Cosby’s former lawyer on his crisis team, hoping they’ll dismiss the claims made against him. R Kelly addressed social media saying “Despite all of the crap y’all hearing, I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show…’”. Let’s hope the singer can make some sense of all this.

Another acclaimed R&B vocalist, Usher, has got into some trouble as two women have now accused the singer of exposing them with the sexually transmitted disease Herpes. Once the first woman found out that Usher admitted to having the STD, she decided to sue for negligence, battery, and emotional distress. The woman claims she would have never slept with Usher if she knew he had Herpes. The lawsuit started at $10 million, but was recently raised to $20 million once she tested positive for Herpes.

Singer-songwriter Bobby Valentino has been doing a lot more than making music these days, his name was TRENDING for allegedly skipping out on paying a transgendered prostitute for their services. Bobby V denies that he was with a prostitute and says that once the person realized who he was, they decided to extort him on camera.

Watch the viral video below:

Bobby’s representative tells TMZ that he was “victimized and threatened by act of extortion which continued after his departure was captured on video.”

Bobby V is now pressing charges, reporting the extortion of him to law enforcement.

Talk about CRAZY!

As much as fans would hope that these accusations are not true, the odds are not looking too good for these famous singers!
