‘I don’t give a f*** what’s going on!’: R Kelly sings ‘Bump N Grind’ in Chicago club as shrugs off sex abuse claims and celebrates ‘motherf***ing’ 52nd birthday

  • The R&B hit-maker was celebrating his 52nd birthday in Chicago Thursday night
  • He went on an expletive-filled rant in defiance as the crowd cheered him on

R Kelly went on an expletive-filled rant at a Chicago nightclub on his 52nd birthday amid claims of sexual misconduct, saying ‘I don’t give a f**k what’s going on right now.’

The R&B singer sang his famous ‘Bump N Grind’ number, wailing: ‘Baby I don’t want to hurt nobody, but there is something that I must confess.’

The musician shouted into the microphone: ‘Y’all motherf***ers don’t know, it’s my motherf***ing birthday and I don’t give a f**k what’s going on right now.’

The hit maker is facing a raft of allegations from women over abuse in the documentary series ‘Surviving R Kelly.’

R Kelly is accused of running an ‘abusive cult’ as he preyed on dozens of young women.

The six-part true crime drama claims R Kelly stalked teenagers at the mall and held girls captive. 

He is alleged to have used forged documents so he could marry fellow musician Aaliyah when she was aged 15 and he was 27.

His daughter, singer Buku Abi, shared a post on Instagram on Thursday in which she referred to her father as a ‘monster.’

She said: ‘I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house.’ 

Police in Georgia have contacted several women since the show was broadcast, TMZ reported.

In 2002, footage emerged which reportedly showed R Kelly urinating on an underage girl and he was investigated by police in Florida.

He was found not guilty by a jury in Chicago in 2008 after an initial prosecution collapsed due to defence complaints about search warrants.

In the last year many artists have distanced themselves from R Kelly as the Time’s Up movement picked up traction.

Chance the Rapper and Lady GaGa are among many musicians to have apologised in the wake of the documentary for working with him.

R Kelly denies all of the allegations against him.
