R. Kelly's teenage daughter Jaya recently came out as transgender, writing that she is now living her life as Jay.
But for two weeks, R. Kelly wouldn't even address this momentous change. And he still won't. But he IS addressing the fact that he isn't addressing it.
In an interview with his hometown Chicago's WGCI, the Trapped In The Closet singer said:
So far, there's been a good amount of controversy surrounding the upcoming Aaliyah biopic starring Disney Channel cutie Zendaya.
But if you're worried about how authentic Lifetime is planning on making this film, don't be!
It sounds like they're going to make Aaliyah: Princess of R&B as close to the late singer's life as possible. This includes touching base on her alleged relationship with R. Kelly.
It was reported that the Try Again singer was illegally married to her then-music producer when she was only 15 and he was 27 years old.
Executive producer Debra Martin Chase revealed that they're definitely taking precautions when it comes to this part in Aaliayh's life.
This is so brave!
R. Kelly’s child Jaya has recently decided to come out as transgender, and is now going by the name Jay!
13-year-old Jay explains that he’s identified himself as a male since he was 5 or 6 years old, and wears a binder around his torso. Right now, Jay has female organs, but wants to have a full sex change surgery and will start taking testosterone.
About the change, Jay said:
This brings out the best of R. Kelly without any of the urine!

As if R. Kelly hasn't had enough legal troubles in his life!
Here's another one added to the books!
The Bump and Grind singer has reportedly been falling behind on child support payments, and if he fails to show up to his rescheduled court hearing in March, R. Kelly could face jail time!
This all started when his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, claimed in legal docs that her ex-hubby failed to pay child support and said he fell behind $100k in payments, although the singer eventually paid the debt off.
Now, R. Kelly is in deep shiz for missing a court hearing in November. A source said of his missed court appearance:
Looks like he'll have to use the words "ho ho ho," in a much less NSFW manner soon.
On the heels of comparing Chris Brown to Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., and Jesus, it looks like R. Kelly will soon be comparing himself to Santa Claus?!
Well sort of! In a recent interview, R. announced that he's been working on a Christmas album since the last Holiday season:
Releasing a sexually explicit music video isn't the most controversial thing R. Kelly has ever done.
Thanks to his defense of pal Chris Brown, it's not even the most controversial thing he's done today!
Ch-ch-check out the NSFW video (above) to see R. earn his moniker with a totes R-rated mini movie for Cookie.
