R. Kelly is not happy.
He wanted to address much of the allegations of sexual misconduct, and deny what he says is “false claims” about the singer in a statement to Metro UK.
“I will say that I am infuriated, and I am heartbroken by the false claims against me,” he said. “These accusations being perpetuated by the media is an attempt to distort my character and to destroy my legacy that I have worked so hard to build. These allegations have created a character of me that is not the truth of who I am nor what I am about. The women in my life are consenting adults and they are with me on their free will. I am a God-fearing man, a son, a brother, and most importantly a father. The media has dissected and manipulated these false allegations to reach their own conclusions about me and what I do in my personal life. My focus has always been music and being in the music industry. At this time, my faith and my love for music are the only things that has not been affected. The devil is a liar. To whom much is given, from him much expected. To my fans, I love you all from the deepest part of me. I am nothing without you, my fans. Thank you very much for all your support. I am a God-fearing man and through God’s grace and mercy, I will survive.
The singer also claims that he is not being investigated.
“The police are not investigating me, there is no criminal investigations made against me, just allegations and conclusions.”
He was reportedly preparing to perform at a show in Chicago alongside Xscap3, Lyfe Jennings, and K. Michelle following protests surrounding allegations that he is running a sex cult, and reports of being in relations with underaged women. His performance got cancelled, and he spoke out on socila media.
