R. Kelly Children: Meet Jay Kelly, Joann Kelly and Robert Kelly Jr.
R. Kelly, 54, was convicted guilty of sex trafficking and racketeering on September 27 and is currently facing decades in jail. A federal jury in Brooklyn found the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer guilty of the offenses that were notably described in the 2019 Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly.
On May 4, 2022, he will be given a prison sentence, leaving behind his three children, Joann Kelly, age 23, Jay Kelly, age 21, and Robert Kelly Jr., age 19. All of Kelly’s children are shared with his ex-wife Andrea “Drea” Kelly, 47, with whom he was wed from 1996 to 2009.
R Kelly, 55, is a musician, parent, and vilified artist. Jay Kelly, Joann Kelly, and Robert Kelly Jr. are his three children. The oldest of the three daughters, Joann Kelly was born on March 19, 1998.
She is the child of Kelly and Andrea, his former spouse. Buku Abi is the stage name used by Joann, who also plays music. Jay, who was born in 2000 and is now about 22 years old, is the middle child.
According to The Daily Mail, Jay came out as transgender in 2014. According to Hollywood Life, Jay is also a singer and goes by the stage name JaahBaby. Robert Kelly Jr., R Kelly’s son and youngest kid, was born in 2002.
R Kelly’s entire family is raised by Andrea. In contrast to his older brothers, his 20-year-old son has a more private life and stays out of the spotlight. In January 2019, Andrea claimed on The Bert Show that the vilified musician does not get along with his kids.
“He is no longer in contact with his kids. He no longer calls them because he changed his number. That phone number is not one that we have “Drea cited the source.
