The 55year old singer was found guilty of using his fame to sexually abuse young fans after coming face to face with some of his victims as they confronted him in court on Wednesday, June 29, 2022.

For the victims of the R&B singer R. Kelly, his sentencing in New York on Wednesday has been a long wait, arriving after decades of accusations of sexual and physical abuse. But Wednesday’s decision aside, the former entertainer will remain in deep legal peril and any prison term he faces could still ultimately grow.

Mr. Kelly is scheduled to stand trial again in Chicago on Aug. 15, where he faces federal charges for producing child pornography and luring minors into sex acts.

Smith has apologised for his actions and also to the Academy in his recent post saying 

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.

I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.

I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us.

I am a work in progress.
