Did you know? R Kelly lost his first girlfriend when he was only 8 years old
R Kelly was 8 years old when he had his first girlfriend. They would hold hands and eat make-believe meals inside their playhouse built from cardboard.
Where they “vowed to be boyfriend and girlfriend forever.” Their last play date turned tragic when, after fighting with some older kids over a play area by a creek, Lulu was pushed into the water.
A fast-moving current swept her away while she screamed Kelly’s name. Shortly after, she was found dead downstream.
R Kelly calls Lulu his very first musical inspiration.
