During an interview with mens magazine, GQ, R&B legend, R Kelly, has revealed some disturbing contents of his closet, forming an unlikely bond with Comedian, Bill Cosby, as those details are sex abuse related.
Singer supports Bill Cosby, shares childhood sexual abuse experience
Speaking on the allegations being faced by Cosby, the singer who admitted to growing up watching the comedian, revealed that he would only believe the allegations, if proved true by God himself.
Speaking on everything from the sex abuse he suffered as a child to the sexual abuse allegations leveled against Cosby, the singer had a lot to share.
This makes R Kelly, the first celebrity to show the slightest support since the shocking allegations against the comedian first turned up, as Hollywood star's had taken to twitter to show their displeasure.
Relating how the sexual abuse had began at the hands of a relative, R Kelly said:
“As far as I can remember, about [age] 7 or 8 to maybe 14, 15. Something like that.
“Back then, too young to judge. As I’m older, I’ve only learned to forgive it. Was it wrong? Absolutely. But it’s a family member that I love so I would definitely say no to that one. To be honest, even if my mom, I saw her kill somebody, I’m not gonna say, ‘Well, yeah, she definitely should go to jail.’ It’s just something I wouldn’t do.”
"Well, my opinion on that is, I don’t know what happened. I’m a fan of Bill Cosby’s from the Bill Cosby show, of course -- who’s not? -- and for me to give my opinion on something that I have no idea if it’s true or not, all I can say is that it was a long time ago. And when I look on TV and I see the 70-, 80-, 90-year-old ladies talking about what happened when they were 17, 18, 19, there’s something strange about it …
"If God showed me that they were telling the truth, I would say that’s wrong. I don’t care if it was a zillion years ago. But God would have to do that, because God is the only one can show me that. No man can tell me that. No woman can tell me that. And when you wait 70 years, 50 years, 40 years, to say something that simple, it’s strange. You know why I say that is because it happened to me, and it wasn’t true."
R Kelly has shown his support for Cosby, especially after the singer had once had to deal with similar allegations, the only difference being that he had been found guilt free.
The singer added, saying:
“When a person is found not guilty, they’re found not guilty. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a murder case, it doesn’t matter what case it is, when they’re found not guilty, they’re not guilty.
"And I think that a lot of haters out there wanted to see me go down.”
The singer had faced child pornography charges in 2002, following the release of a video clip that showed him having sex with a female minor.
R kelly had subsequently been arrested in 2003, and although there have been several other allegations against him, he had later been found not guilty in 2008.
