R Kelly - R Kelly Omits Tape Scandal From New Autobiography

R Kelly released his autobiography 'Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me' this week, some three years after it was first announced by publishers. Though the singer vowed to detail his career with "searing honesty", the Chicago Sun-Times claims R Kelly makes no mention of the infamous sex tape that left him in court.
The tape was delivered anonymously to the Sun-Times' offices on February 1, 2002, and was subsequently turned over to police, resulting in an investigation into the age of the female who also appeared. The singer was eventually acquitted, after judge Dennis Maloney ruled that the prosecution could not introduce as evidence photographs found on a digital camera during a raid at the singer's home in Davenport, Florida. There is also not a single word about the late singer Aaliyah, whom Kelly allegedly married when she was just 15. The details of their relationship have always been the subject of intense speculation, though it was assumed R Kelly would use the book to finally speak the truth. One subject that the singer does focus on, is his inspiring friendship with his music teacher Ms Lena MCLin, who predicted that it would be music and not basketball that would prove to be his calling.
Unfortunately for the singer, he was struck down with a "medical emergency" this week, meaning he was unable to attend his own book launch in New York. He was also ruled out of an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late night talk show and the 'Today' morning show.
