R. Kelly’s three Grammys will not be rescinded — for now


According to the Chicago Sun-TimesRecording Academy CEO Harvey Mason jr. shut down rumors that the “Ignition” singer’s three Grammys have been revoked, although he was just convicted on sex trafficking charges. “I think it’s something that we’re going to need to take a good hard look at, have a lot of conversations about, work through and make a decision,” Mason said. Back in 1997, Kelly won Grammys in three separate categories for “I Believe I Can Fly,” the hit single from the Space Jam soundtrack. Last month, Kelly was convicted of one count of racketeering, with 14 underlying acts that included sexual exploitation of a child, bribery, kidnapping and sex trafficking charges.
