According to the reports, Kelly and Calhoun were spotted partying at the Gold Room in Atlanta over the weekend. The couple allegedly met in North Carolina, where she was attending his concert with her mother, and they have been inseparable since then. The singer is said to be so in love with his new girlfriend that he is ready to tie the knot with her.
R. Kelly has been known for his questionable behavior in regards to underage girls. Back in 1994, he legally married the late R&B singer, Aaliyah, when she was 15. The singer was also charged with 21 counts for child pornography after sex tapes with him and underage girls emerged online, although he has since denied that it was him in the videos. He was also acquitted of the charges in 2008.

The age gap of 30 years has not been well received by the public, making Twitter go crazy over their relationship and we have some facts that may just back the 'riots'. Halle Calhoun is just one year older than R. Kelly's third album, R., and she wasn't even born when he wrote: "Age Ain't Nothing but a Number" for Aaliyah. The news also got him the title of 'Donkey of the day' on a video that has been going viral on Youtube.
