They (Sting and “Captain” Clive Kelly) used to be allies, but it seems their relationship went sour. Kelly photographed and filmed Sting with his body painted like a Kayapo warrior. Kelly says he also introduced him to the Kayapo chief Raoni Metuktire, who accompanied the rock star on a trip around the world to draw attention to the plight of Amazonian people. Kelly charges that Sting and Styler have since forgotten Raoni, who, he says, now lives in poverty near the city of Brasilia. “I think Raoni is angry,” says Kelly. “He went all the way to Rio to ask Sting why he hadn’t kept his promise. Sting wouldn¢t answer his calls.” The Rainforest Foundation used his film and photos without paying him, Kelly alleges. “Raoni and I have lost everything,” says Kelly, now 69. “I live in a hovel. We should have small pensions from the foundation.”
