K. Michelle Talks R. Kelly
K. Michelle stopped by "The Real" on Thursday and she got emotional as she discussed her past relationship with R. Kelly.
Adrienne Bailon asked K. to share her thoughts on the recent allegations against R. Kelly.
The "Build A Man" singer co-signed claims that he is very controlling. She also expressed her empathy for victims of abuse who speak out and no one believes them.
That gets kind of tricky for me, um, because I see it from two different perspectives - I see it as, you know, this is my mentor, he taught me everything I know about reording, about how to write, the importance of just doing music.
And you want to have loyalty for that, but at the same time, I was the girl who was saying something happened to me, and the world told me that
it didn't happen. And so, when I'm looking on the blogs, and I see girls telling their stories, and women all up under these comments like, 'That didn't happen. Oh she lyin.' It breaks my heart because I was once that girl, like somebody know the truth, nobody gonna take up for me?
So it's left me in a very, you know, funny place, people have asked, this is really the first place I'm speaking about it. I got out of the situation. It was something that I think affected how I thought of myself and how I love men, and you know, I was able to get out of it. So all I can say is to make sure you watch when you tell somebody a specific event didn't happen to them. Because they could be really going through something.
