He Broke Up With Me 4 Days To Our Wedding, But He Didn’t Know I Did This For Him

Published

on

Hello my dear reader, my Christian name is Janet and I am 30 years old and single at the moment.

I know you may be thinking over why a 30 year old woman is still unmarried even though she is beautiful.

Please I do not think I can answer that question, but I just wanted to get you informed on what happened to my last failed relationship.

During my first year at the university, I came across John. He is tall and so handsome that I could not even take my eyes off him.

I prayed to myself that he would come and engage me in a chart.

Oh My God! Pardon me for my manners … how did we meet at all?

It was a friend’s birthday and infact he was a celebrity friend.

The whole thing was just like magic because we connected right away.

We love each other and are always seen together.

As a matter of truth we are the perfect match, as our friends and neighbors always say.

We dated from one year to last year and continued with our relationships even after our school.

7 years after that relationship, I began to worry where it was going because by then many of my friends who started their relationship when I was home I had settled down with their partners.

During that moment, I seemed to be the only one on the market.

I remember very well that because of my mother, I could not just go home to my parents.

She would make fun of me because I could not discover a husband.

I must confess that the pressure is tremendous from all angles.

I often question John on when we are getting married.

The answer is always “I have to be patient with him for a while.” Hmmmm.

Money does not matter if you have those thoughts. John is doing pretty well for himself.

He earns over N200,000 a month from his job, and the company offers him with a car and legal residence so money is never a problem.

I endured and stayed with John until the tenth (10) anniversary of our date when John finally got engaged.

I am so much excited, I finally got married, I can now boldly walk the streets with my head held high and show off with my very expensive ring in my hand, I thought inwardly.

We plan all weddings together. The date has been arranged and everything is well arranged.

But when I got my breakthrough, I never realized that the earth would one day open up to devour my entire being.

2 days before our wedding, my cell phone was within range while John was away.

She is on a business trip and is expected to happen the day before the wedding.

It is very urgent. I rush to my cell phone, pick it up, and see what really shakes me like thunder.

The message read, “Janet, sorry to say this now, but I plan on saying it, I cannot go on. I think you will find the right man for you.

My world is breaking before my eyes. What kind of shame is that?

How can I meet my mother and friends? Why is John doing this to me after I sacrificed everything for him? and I’ will tell you about her son shortly after our wedding.

This incident occurred three years ago when John was still looking for work, we met and later discovered that I was pregnant. I thought to tell myself about it, but my friend advised me not to surprise him.

We came up with a plan. I had to lie to John that I was going to Abuja to learn his craft for the next year.

Everything went according to plan, my aunt and girlfriend played their roles very effectively.

After giving birth, I left the baby with my aunt and returned to Lagos. So far, John didn’t pay attention to his son.

I would never have expected that from John. Even though I felt bad, I decided to continue with my baby. At 30 years old it would be hard to find a man, but I swore I would never tell him about my son. This will be my little secret that makes me want to die!

Please I beg you, Share your thoughts on this!

Thanks for reading.

Why R. Kelly Was Jailed for 30 years

Published

on

R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday after being convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking.

U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly imposed the sentence on Kelly and ordered him to pay a $100,000 fine after a nearly three-hour hearing. Kelly did not address the court.

The victims held hands while the sentence was read and Kelly had no apparent reaction.

“Although sex was certainly a weapon that you used, this is not a case about sex. It’s a case about violence, cruelty and control,” Judge Donnelly told him during the sentencing.

Kelly’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean said they look forward to the appeal.

“30 years is like life for him,” she said. She also emphasized he is “not a predator.”

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Breon Peace called the sentence a “significant outcome” for Kelly’s victims.

Kelly “preyed upon children and young women..for decades,” according to Peace. He would “force victims, including minors” to be in “porno films” which the singer “produced and directed.”

“The sentence shows that the witnesses reclaim control over their lives,” he added. “This is a victory for them. It doesn’t matter how powerful..justice only hears the truth”

Seven of Kelly’s victims gave impact statements during the sentencing hearing.

“You made me do things that broke my spirit. I literally wished I would die because of how low you made me feel,” one woman told the Grammy-winning, multiplatinum-selling singer. “Do you remember that?”

Another woman, sobbing and sniffling as she spoke, said Kelly’s conviction restored her faith in the legal system.

“I once lost hope,” she said, addressing the court and prosecutors, “but you restored my faith.”

The woman said Kelly victimized her after she went to a concert when she was 17.

“I was afraid, naive and didn’t know to handle the situation,” she said, so she didn’t speak up at the time.

“Silence,” she said, “is a very lonely place.”

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was convicted on one count of racketeering. The racketeering including 14 underlying acts of sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, and sex trafficking charges.

R. Kelly was also convicted on eight violations of the Mann Act. The legislation makes it illegal to transport people across state lines for “immoral purposes.”

The trial lasted six weeks.

Prosecutors argued that Kelly had used his "fame, money and popularity" to recruit women and teenagers for "his own sexual gratification."

Prosecutors had argued that Kelly should receive at least 25 years in prison for his conviction.

Kelly used his “fame, money and popularity” to systematically “prey upon children and young women for his own sexual gratification,” prosecutors wrote in the filing.

“He continued his crimes and avoided punishment for them for almost 30 years and must now be held to account,” prosecutors wrote.

Kelly’s lawyers had argued he should get no more than 10 years in prison because he had a traumatic childhood “involving severe, prolonged childhood sexual abuse, poverty, and violence.”

As an adult with “literacy deficiencies,” the star was “repeatedly defrauded and financially abused, often by the people he paid to protect him,” his lawyers said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

BREAKING NEWS: R. Kelly given 30 years in jail for….

R. Kelly given 30 years in jail for sex abuse.

 

US singer R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for using his status to run a scheme to sexually abuse children and women.

In September, a jury in New York convicted the R&B artist, 55, of racketeering and sex trafficking crimes.

Lawyers for the singer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, say he will appeal.

Survivors on Wednesday said he had degraded and humiliated them.

Ahead of his sentencing, a handful of women took the stand to confront Kelly over his decades-long-abuses.

A woman identified only as Angela called the singer a Pied Piper who “grew in wickedness” with every new victim, while others who were not named testified he had broken their spirits.

“I literally wished I would die because of how you made me feel,” said one.

Dressed in prison khakis and dark glasses, Kelly declined to make a statement of his own.

US District Judge Ann Donnelly said the celebrity had used sex as a weapon, forcing his victims to do unspeakable things and saddling them with incurable diseases.

“You taught them that love is enslavement and violence,” she said.

The court heard how Kelly – known for hit songs like I Believe I Can Fly and Ignition – used his celebrity status and influence to lure women and children into sexual abuse over two decades.

Jurors at his six-week trial in Brooklyn heard how he trafficked women between different US states, assisted by managers, security guards and other members of his entourage.

The court also heard how Kelly had illegally obtained paperwork to marry singer Aaliyah when she was 15 in 1994, seven years before the singer died in a plane crash.

The certificate, leaked at the time, listed Aaliyah’s age as 18. The marriage was annulled months later.

Federal prosecutors had recommended that Kelly be sentenced to more than 25 years in prison, given the seriousness of his crimes and “the need to protect the public from further crimes”.

But his lawyers called for a sentence of 10 years – the mandatory minimum for his conviction – or less.

They portrayed Kelly as growing up poor in a household rife with domestic violence and suffering sexual abuse from a young age.

Kelly has been in custody since he was indicted by federal prosecutors in New York and Chicago in July 2019.

His three years behind bars have been eventful, including a beating from a fellow inmate in 2020 and a bout with Covid-19 earlier this year.

The singer faces further legal action in August, when he goes on trial again, this time in Chicago on child sex images and obstruction charges.

He is also due to face sex abuse charges in courts in Illinois and Minnesota.
