R. Kelly Address Rumors About His Son Being Transgender
R. Kelly’s transgender son, Jay Kelly made headlines when he came out as a transgender boy. Jaya, who lives with his mother Drea Kelly, requested that he be referred to as Jay. Up until now, R. Kelly hadn’t responded to the controversy or commented on his son’s transformation. He was recently put on the hot seat, during an interview after his performance at Detroit WCGI’s Summer Jam, where he opened up about the situation and why he keeps his personal business out of the blogs (that he seems to despise).
Kell’s made it clear to the interviewer that her approach wasn’t appropriate. “You don’t really want to open it up saying my daughter is becoming my son,” he said. “As far as that is concerned, always believe what you see with your own eyes,” he added. “No matter what they are, who they are, they still your kids. You love them. You have to support them.”
Kell’s may have an infamous reputation but we respect that he supports his children.
