R. Kelly’s Daughter Is Hurt Over Accusations
R. Kelly’s ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, and daughter, Joann Kelly, 21, recently spoke in an interview regarding the recent allegations against, singer, R. Kelly after the release of the Lifetime documentary, ‘Surviving R. Kelly’. He is being accused of multiple counts of rape of minors. Many women in Kelly’s circle have spoken about the allegations including victims, his ex-wife, employees, and close friends. This was the first interview where Joan told her side of the story.
“Honestly, it’s been a few years since I’ve last seen or spoken to him. I don’t know exactly how long, but it’s been a while. what I said to make people feel like I hate him, or I’m bashing him because that’s not it.”
“At the end of the day, you have to be responsible for your actions. If my father is a toxic person, then we will have to love him from a distance. There is no love lost, I just had to separate myself. I’m very torn, at the end of the day, it’s still family, he’s still my blood. So yes, I do still love my father and that’s something I want people to understand.”
“I don’t think people have a clear understanding that we are dealing with two different people here. There is R. Kelly the persona and then there is Robert the person. Myself and my daughter are connected to Robert the person so it’s very personal him being my ex-husband and the father of my children. It’s difficult but it is needed. It’s saving lives, it’s changing lives, and we stand in the gap.”
