I knew Dean Kelly in 1992 - 1994 in NYC. He stayed in my apt sometimes and I visited him in Miami. I am not an ex-girlfriend. I dated him briefly, but nothing serious and we were better as friends. I have not thought of him in many years. The Dean Kelly I knew was the one in the Crazy video. I was saddened to hear what has become of him because although he did have some odd/quirky ways and was not always the most honest person around, I never pictured him as someone who could be a rapist. He always was a bit of a player, but had a good heart.
After doing some online research, I am not trying to defend him, but will say that there does indeed appear a different, younger, man with the same name. It seems that perhaps this other Dean Kelly is the one involved with Facefuse, model scamming and the like. He has darker hair and is younger than the Dean in the Crazy video.
I found this other Dean Kelly on Facebook (says he lives in New Orleans, went to college at Tulane and Chicago University, and high school at Jesuit High School). This other Dean has for his profile picture a banner across it the words "facefuse." He also has another website www.dean-kelly.com
, which appears to be some sort of Hollywood gossip website.
I just pray that the wrong Dean Kelly is not behind bars while this other one is off in Europe (per his postings on the website feed/Twitter updated 19 hrs ago). If the Dean Kelly that I knew truly committed these crimes then I agree that he should be behind bars, but will say there is doubt in my mind based upon his basic personality and that there is indeed another model with the same name, but younger and with darker hair. And, I do not believe this is the Dean Kelly I knew posing as the younger one, but two separate people. I just can't believe the Dean I knew could have changed so much? Hardly an angel, but far from a monster.
In any case, I am sorry to learn of all the misfortune and pray the victims find healing and peace and that justice is served for them. And, in case anyone thinks I have alterior motives, or am just trying to defend him at any cost, I have not spoken to the man in over 10 years.
