“You guys I actually had an experience with R.Kelly. I was about 16 working part-time at a retail store in Sandton (Johannesburg) we heard R.Kelly was in the mall, so we were standing outside the store to see him pass and I swear we locked eyes. He stopped and said hi to me, me out of everyone??!! and was asking me my name when my boss called us back in! I was angry at my boss though but watching this documentary now I’m like wow. Maybe underage girls were his type and was about to show interest,” she wrote.
