EllyAnne :  They found child porn on his computer at some point. Can’t remember when… Also I don’t think the term pedophile is only applied when the children are pre-pubescent, is it? I looked up the definition and it says “a person who is sexually attracted to children.” A 15 year old is a child IMO. It was also in the news today that he is accused of having sex with a 13 year old girl in Detroit back in the early 2000s I believe.

llevinso :  I didn’t know about the child porn. 

Obviously what he’s done is vile but a distinction is usually made between a paedophile and those who are attracted to 13+ year olds (when 5 years older than the victim).

EllyAnne :  In the US, yeah he’s considered a pedophile.  The only distinction is if the child is underaged and its what 17/16?? depending on the state.

If they can prove he had sexual relations with underaged girls he’d be convicted of statuatory rape.

He married a 15 year old without parental consent and it was quickly annulled when they found out.

sablescorpion22 :  Oh ok, different to the UK then. Paedophile is considered to be a psychological condition. An attraction to prebuscent children that can’t be cured.

I know he married Aaliyah when she was 15. Many family and ‘friends’ let her down there.

After the 2002 court case dor filming himself urinating on a 14 year old I find it really sad that arrists were still happy to work with him. I know he walked free because she wouldn’t testify but it must have been known by many artists what he was up to.
