R. Kelly Is Dating a Teenager, and Twitter Is Ripping Him a New One

He's 49, in case you were curious.

In today's cringe-worthy news, R. Kelly is dating a teenager. Weird? Yes. Surprising? Unfortunately not.

Now, there is one silver lining: The girl is legal. According to, R. Kelly's current bae is 19-year-old Halle Calhoun. (He is 49, in case you didn't know.) The two were photographed partying in Atlanta over the weekend, and this news has the Internet in a tizzy--a shady, aggressive tizzy.

R. Kelly's sketchy past with young women is the primary reason why people are enraged. (R. Kelly was charged with child pornography in 2002 after a video of him allegedly having sex and urinating on an underage girl became public. He was later acquitted of the charges.) And they're not holding back. Just look at few messages people put on Twitter about this ish. They all have the same universal theme: Drag him!
