US R&B singer R. Kelly, 49, recently stepped out with his rumoured 19-year-old girlfriend – model Halle Calhoun – and the reactions have been mixed but quite loud and clear.
Some say he is too old to be with a woman that young and are questioning whether he has issues in need of closer scrutiny – citing the fact that he reportedly started dating late singer Aaliyah when she was just 15.
On the other hand, the ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ singer has garnered some support from commentators who say, if Hugh Hefner, Donald Trump and Johnny Depp can be with much younger partners without any media attention, why is R. Kelly getting the flack?
What do you think? Is age just a number? Or has the ‘Step In The Name Of Love’ singer stepped a little too far with his latest squeeze?
