R. Kelly’s Youngest Girl Comes Out As Transgender On Internet

(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly’s youngest child, Jaya, now goes by the name Jay after coming out as a transgender on social media.

Jay, born a female, says she has identified with being male since she was “6 or 7.” Now 13-year-old, Kells youngest says that the news isn’t really new and he has the full support of his mother.

“[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much,” he said on Instagram.

According to a report by InTouch magazine, R. Kelly didn’t know about the transformation or the coming out.

He said: “[My mom] was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender. And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me.”

Jay hopes to becoming a full transexual at some point.

“I believe I am a boy and want surgery, and the medication to help me [become] who I was supposed to be,” he said.

    Is this dude a leopard? Is he trans-species? He hunts his own food and runs around naked in the forest – even tattooed his whole body and got fangs implanted.

    Is Paul Wall trans-racial?

    F#ck that. And f#ck the whole transwhatever movement. If you want to act like the opposite gender, whatever; I don’t get it, but do what you wish. But it doesn’t change the fact that you are what you are.

    I refuse to call a he a ‘she’, or a she a ‘he’ just because they like to live that lifestyle. Just like you wouldn’t call the dude in the picture a leopard. Just like you wouldn’t call Paul Wall a black man.

      sad reality is they aint gon get it until its too late…

      sadly i think were already there

    • Embassy

      Him vs Her was really not even my point. Point is, if you’re black, your community doesn’t like it if you aren’t ‘normal’. Don’t be gay, don’t be too rich for your neighborhood, don’t be too poor, don’t be good at school, don’t drop out. Just be normal and maybe play some basketball, otherwise you get bullied growing up and you aren’t ‘real’.

    but what classifies you as transgender? like your born with certain body parts and then your like “oh i don’t wanna be this way no more i wanna be another way” is that what being transgender all about? i always thought if you was born as a boy automatically YOUR A BOY! right? and vice versa with a girl…. or if you LOOK like a girl but you got a penis what’s that called? or if you look like a boy but you really got a vagina whats that? people who are gay/lesbian bisexual whatever are the most confusing people EVER…and they pride themselves on being abstract on being misunderstood…. like for attention or whatever… real weirdos in my opinion…and i got cousins who are gay i love them very much but…they’re just extra weird to me…

    • maya

      Why blame them for your lack of comprehension?

      • Calico Joe

        I got a question and I’m being serious…. what’s the difference between gay and transgender?

      • maya

        A gay person identifies with the sex and/or gender they were assigned at birth, and is also attracted to the same sex. In other words, was born a baby boy, grows up to be a man, considers himself a man, happy being a man, and is mainly attracted to men, sexually, romantically, etc.

        A transgender doesn’t identify with the sex and/or gender he or she was assigned at birth, and takes some sort of steps to present themselves in a way that better represents who they really are. For example, somebody might be born a baby boy, but growing up, really wants to be a little girl and identifies more with being a girl. They might go so far as taking female hormones and getting surgeries, to make their bodies as much female as possible. They might be attracted to men. Or they might be attracted to women. They might be attracted to both – bisexual. They might be attracted to nobody. Just like anybody else. Some might feel they were born in the wrong body. Some might feel they were born in the right body, but it was just meant for them to go through the metamorphosis.

        Of course, these are just general descriptions. I, personally, think people should be able to discover and define THEMSELVES, as we are all different and have our own unique life experiences. Some don’t really consider themselves male or female, they just chose one label because a box needs to be checked, but they feel that science really hasn’t assigned a term to accurately describe who they really are.

      • 5% Hov

        I reallly think dude owes you tutor fees.

      • Celz

        My only issue is most gender identifiable traits are social a.k.a. learned behavior and not genetic. I’m not an expert and the issue is deeper than anyone person can fully understand but. I think sex should be determined by your genetic assignment and then people should be open to tolerate how a person decides to represent themselves.

      • maya

        You are so right when you say that the issue is deeper than anybody can fully understand. Scientifically, we are still pretty much in the “earth is flat” stage when it comes to knowing all there is to know a about human beings. We don’t know more than we do know.

        I, personally, feel that it is not as simple as male or female.

        I am a transgender female. I’m a different type of female. My life experience is different than a regular female. As difficult and painful as my life has been, I don’t think I would trade it. If I were a regular female, I would not have experienced a lot of AMAZING things that I have experienced. Much of the journey has been agonizing. On one hand, I feel like I will never be good enough. On the other hand, I feel privileged.

        So, I guess I agree with you, a lot. I am a transgender female. FEMALE. Whether anybody else agrees or not. I’m not asking. I’m telling. And I know I’m not a regular female. I accept and value ALL of my life, from birth until now, every step of the way. It’s been a hard life, but it’s been an interesting life, and I’m grateful for all of it.

  • LexxBrown

    They way this world is moving its just allowing kids to do what they want with no guidance. Parents are suppose to raise kids not kids raise their self.

    • maya

      Some parents believe in loving their kids and accepting them for who they are. That’s not Hip Hop.

  • GP

    That is what happens when parents start being best friends and not parents! kids do what they want become who they want and the parents cant stop them.

    So that whole “trapped in the closet” BS was actually for real, just not for the reasons he put out?

  • B.U.

    No 13 year old knows who they are “supposed to be”.

    • maya

      If that 13 year grows up and changes his or her mind at 21, that’s his or her prerogative. Folks just need to mind their own business, basically.

      • Guest


      • B.U.

        So you think she’s mature enough 13 to know that she wants to have a permanent cosmetic surgery?

      • maya

        Everyone is different. Maybe she is mature and insightful enough to know that she wants permanent surgery. Now, HAVING the surgery is another story. The story doesn’t say that she is having any surgery any time soon. Most wait until they are adults to have any surgery (unless they were born “intersexed” and had surgery as a baby).

      • B.U.

        Man, kids are coming out younger and younger these days. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.

      • maya

        Look at it this way: until recently, most gay kids, transgender kids, kids who were “different,” grew up being taught they were disgusting, being told that they were going to burn in hell, being threatened with death, that their love was not legitimate, that their dreams are foul. Imagine what that does to a kid’s mind. Imagine how that kills a kid’s spirit.

        Which is worse? The cruel abuse that this society has inflicted upon LGBT kids all these years? Or the discomfort that some people feel because “kids are coming out so soon these days?”

        We need to show all kids that we love them for who they are and that they are worthy. Just like we all want to be loved for who we are. That’s how we get healthy adults. That’s how we get gay men and transgender women who know that they are good for more than just sucking dick. That’s how we get black women who know that they are more than a fat ass. That’s how we get black men who know they are capable of more than a life of crime.

        I just don’t see the problem with a kid proudly saying, “This is who I am.” It’s beautiful. And of course a ten year old is not going to know everything about himself or herself. Most thirty year olds don’t know everything about themselves (if they are honest with themselves about it). That’s what life’s about – experiencing and learning. But people – of all ages – should be able to experience life and learn about themselves their own way, and be able to feel safe about it – not having to worry about being beat, killed, disowned by family, verbally and emotionally abused, etc.

      • B.U.

        You might be conflating some issues there but I definitely agree with your sentiment.

      • maya

        What do you mean? They are saying that they are gay or transgender but they really are not gay or transgender?

        NVM – I guess I responded before your edit.

      • B.U.

        No, I was referring to the connection you made between LGBT acceptance and black acceptance.

      • maya

        I’m not talking about acceptance. I’m talking about abuse and its consequences.

        I don’t think it’s anyones place to “accept” LGBT” nor “accept” black people. I can’t think of anybody who is really in that real position of authority or power. That’s an arrogant concept. I am saying that SOCIETY needs to own up to the fact its attitudes and treatment towards LGBT people has been ABUSIVE. Exposing children to these attitudes and treatment is ABUSIVE, and it has tragic consequences.

        Even how you feel the need to point out that the LGBT experience is different than the black experience. So what? It doesn’t diminish the the struggle of LGBT people. And most gay and transgender black people from our generation will tell you that being LGBT has been MUCH harder than being black. Yes, I know that one can hide being LGBT, while they can’t hide being black. But that very notion proves how cruelly society treats gay people. Why should anybody even entertain the thought of pretending to not be LGBT? Living life hiding such an important part of who you are? What kind of life is that? Do you really think that will erase a person’s problems and free them from oppression and cruelty? If that’s what you think, you are wrong. It’s actually even worse, because they are half dead.

        So, the connection that I’m making is that the culture and society we live in is guilty of teaching certain groups of people, from the time they are children, that they are lacking in value and legitimacy, that something is wrong with them, that they are ugly and don’t deserve for their life dreams to come true. We need to be mindful of this. We need to take responsibility for this. We need to change this.

      • B.U.

        Listen, I agree with most of what you’re saying. I never suggested anyone should hide who they are or be forced to hide who they are. I simply expressed some concern about so many children who are still developing their minds and experiences to label themselves. As far as the struggle comparisons between blacks and LGBT, I just responded to a correlation that you pointed out first. Now I totally disagree with the idea that it’s arrogant to expect people to accept the differences in others. Acceptance isn’t the same as agreement.

      • maya

        And kids, with their developing minds, are going to label themselves and have some sort of identity whether they are LGBT or not. The problem is that for a long time, kids were taught to be ashamed of, repress, and punish themselves for having, certain thoughts and feelings. It is much healthier for kids to know that they are okay, whether they are gay or straight or male or female or both or neither or whatever. They are even okay if they are confused and haven;t figured it out yet. A boy might have a crush on a girl when he’s ten, have a crush on a boy when he’s fourteen, marry a woman and start a family when he’s 28. A boy might like wearing dresses when he’s 4, and might like playing football when he’s 16. A boy might like playing football when he’s sixteen, and might want boobs and a sex change when he’s 30.

        There are many different people with many different minds and many different destinies. They all should feel safe and be able to figure their lives out for themselves without being oppressed and abused.

        And I just feel that, at the end of the day, it should;t really even MATTER, what we “accept” or “agree with.” I’m not in your mind, heart, nor shoes. I can’t tell you who you are. And vice versa. My time and energy should be focused on MY shit. Live and let live.

        Just know that it is VERY unfair to suggest that a kid is too young to label himself or herself as gay or transgender but not too young to label himself or herself as straight or a regular boy or girl. You see the bias, right? Now that may not be a big deal to you, because you grew up in a world that taught you that such a prejudice is okay. It’s “normal.” But that actually harms a kid who is growing up and dealing with these issues inside. Do you care? I hope you do. THAT’S the type of things we, as human beings need to be concerned with – how we TREAT people,how it affects them, not whether or not we deem somebody acceptable or agree with them.

      • B.U.

        I think you and I agree on 95% of these issues. The other 5%…who cares! I respect your passion about this and I’ll try to look at it differently moving forward.

      • maya

        Thank you.

      • MrsOno

        Sorry, but until LGBT people have to use a water fountain or bathroom that says “colored only” you can’t say LGBT have had it harder. Until LGBT people fight for the right to vote, not get married, but just be able to vote on anything, your statement does not ring true. Until LGBT people have had dogs let loose on them, fire hoses shot at them, and being lynched from trees, never have the LGBT community had it harder than blacks. Hopefully the LGBT community will never have to face the issues that Blacks have endured. Not to mention, this was the law. Black people were treated like animals and this was the law. This wasn’t 400 years ago. You need to look up Jim Crow Laws before you ever make a statement regarding the struggle of Blacks being easier than the LGBT community.

      • maya

        Which of those things has happened to you?

      • phame

        idk if its a good or bad thing either, but it does lend some truth to the theory that they’re born that way. she/he has known since the age of six or seven, so maybe in another 6 or 7 years from now she may outgrow it through puberty.

      • B.U.

        I just hope now that she labeled herself publicly she doesn’t feel like she’s in this new box forever.

    Why is this news -who cares.

  • ghettogov

    People may not want to hear this but it sounds like r Kellys overly sexual nature and persona may have contributed to his daughters disconnect with being a female. I don’t dislike gay people but I do however feel like if you are born male or female you should try to identify with your gender people wanna play God too much these days. I would say more bit I know people gonna trip out…this is just my viewpoint…

  • bigdoe6

    This kid didn’t have the attention she wanted. She wasn’t told she was beautiful or hugged much. Something had to happen to make her feel that she believes that she’s a boy. I’m sorry but your a female. If you get the surgery in my eyes your a female. God created you a female so the way you came in is the same way you’re going on despite whatever surgery you have. I’m sure this GIRL find some BOYS attractive. She’s just not comfortable in her own skin for whatever reasons that she wants to accept the fact she’s a female.

    Kids these days are lost and this is what happens when parents let kids grow up too fast. They’re exposed to so much. Technology is out of control and the world is different. When i was in high school there wasn’t social media platforms. We didn’t have access to certain things. Now things are beyond crazy many kids lose their way and direction. This GIRL thinks she’s a BOY. This is beyond sad to me.
