Who Is R Kelly’s Brother? 5 Details About Carey Kelly, Including The Latest Accusations He Made Against The Singer

R. Kelly has been accused of many things over the years, from running a "sex cult" to holding women hostage — and his brother just added another shocking transgression to the list.

Carey Kelly, dropped some major bombshells about the R&B singer while promoting his upcoming audiobook Walk A Mile In My Shoes. In a lengthy interview with entertainment blogger Tasha K., he claimed his estranged brother molested and may have impregnated their 14-year-old cousin.

Although Carey Kelly said he had "no animosity" toward his brother, he wanted to set the record straight and agreed to the interview.

"You give people chances to change before you put their business out there before you actually say ‘enough is enough," Carey said, referring to R. Kelly's past. "Things happen in people’s lives to the point where you feel like it’s a wake-up call and now they get a chance to right their wrongs.”

The list of allegations against R. Kelly is all but short, and he is currently under investigation for allegedly leading a sex cult. Multiple women have come forward in recent months and accused him of sexual abuse and holding them hostage, as well as sexual "grooming." One woman claimed he knowingly gave her an STD.

R. Kelly was previously acquitted in a child pornography case in 2008, which is when Carey claims his older brother began a downward spiral.

The fact that R. Kelly is not behind bars despite all of the allegations that have followed him through the years has baffled everyone but Carey, who claims his fame has everything to do with it.

"That's how he's been able to sustain in this business as an artist and as a human being not being locked away and put up in jail," Carey said. "It's almost hard to believe that this icon, that this superstar, would do things of that nature."

In the interview with the Atlanta-based blogger, Carey talks about R. Kelly's past, addresses his allegations, and makes some shocking claims. Here are the biggest bombshells the R&B singer's baby brother brought to the table.

1. He claimed R. Kelly molested their 14-year-old cousin.

Carey said that R. Kelly had sex with one of their cousins when she was just 14 years old. There have been rumors that the cousin, who now has a baby, was impregnated by R. Kelly, which Tasha addressed in the interview.

When asked if the baby was R. Kelly's, Carey said that he could not be sure because no DNA tests have been done to determine who the father is, adding that she didn't have the child until she was 17. 

After saying he was unsure if his brother had still been molesting the young girl when she got pregnant, Carey explained that there was a lot of "turmoil" in the family at the time. The girl's brothers claimed R. Kelly had hired members of the family to clean his house and that he would take the 14-year-old to his room while the others swept and mopped.

The cousin has not yet come forward with the truth, but Carey said he wants her to share her story.

2. He said R. Kelly's relationship with Aaliyah "made you scratch your head."

Carey claimed that the relationship between his brother and Aaliyah, who R. Kelly briefly married, was creepy and brother-sister like.

"It was too close for comfort," he said of R. Kelly and Aaliyah, who he claimed he only had a musical relationship with. “It was a brother-sister relationship but at the same time it made you scratch your head,” Carey continued. “He [was] overprotective of her when he shouldn’t be.”

R. Kelly secretly married a then-15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994 but the marriage was annulled the following year. Aaliyah's age was listed as 18 on the marriage certificate. 

“I picked it up when he was working on her album and he started producing ‘Age Ain’t Nothin But a Number.’ I’m listening to the [lyrics] and I’m paying closer attention to how they’re vibing..they’d be right next to each other, hugged up and different things of that nature,” Carey continued. “That didn’t seem right with him being the age that he was, and her being the age that she was.”

Carey said that when he asked his brother about Aaliyah, he denied any romantic relationship with her.

“Robert has a control problem," Carey explained to Tasha. "And the only reason why he targets little girls, now that I’m older, I understand. He was molested."

The singer's brother added that although they were sexually abused by the same person, he didn't allow the trauma to create a monster, whereas R. Kelly did.

"I was molested [too], but I didn’t turn out that way,” Carey said. “I became a protector of children. I didn’t want kids to go through what I went through…especially my daughters.”

4. He calls R. Kelly "demonic."

Carey calls his brother "demonic" during the interview, but his definition of the word is not what you'd think. 

"I believe that any time a person lusts after a minor, that's not a righteous spirit. That's demonic," he says when Tasha asks if he was saying that R. Kelly worships the devil. "Any time a person lusts after a baby, a child, or a minor, something is wrong with them and it's not just mentally. It's spiritually."

5. This isn't the first time Carey has publicly accused R. Kelly of sexual abuse.

In August, R. Kelly released a 19-minute track titled "I Admit" that sounded a lot like a confession in regards to the sexual misconduct allegations that plague his career. In the song, he addresses the sexual abuse he's been accused of over the last two decades, calls pedophilia an opinion, admits the "sins" he has committed, and more. 

Carey, who raps under the name "Killaclapped back at the track by releasing "I Confess," in which he claims his brother had sex with men, knowingly gave a woman an STD, and never cared about their mother.
