R. Kelly Finally Opens Up About His Transgender Son, But What He Has To Say Is REALLY Disappointing!

r kelly finally speaks transgender son jay jaya

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:

"You don't really want to open it up with saying my daughter's becoming my son, ’cause if that were true… Don't give the blogs that kind of credit… I've heard a lot of things about a lot of people, and it was never true."

So is R. denying the whole thing? He seems to be implying that this is just a rumor! But Jay came out in his own words, so how are people faking that?

See what R. Kelly has to say about his family and his privacy in the full interview (below)!

    Remember when Cher did the same thing, perez, don't be so judgemental.

    You are being EXTREMELY judgmental in this. Many parents take years to fully come to terms with a situation like this and some never do. Just because he did not address it to your liking does not mean ANYTHING because R Kelly has rarely if ever talks about his private life/family/kids/ex-wife. Plus he did say that he loved his children, so why can that not just be enough? He said you have to support your kids and love them no matter who or what they are. Seems to me like he loves his kids and does support them financially and otherwise. This was just not a case for you to be so judgmental about his lack of wishing to discuss it.

    Just because someone doesn't react the way YOU THINK they should, it's a problem? Brilliant.

    Think of how fucking weird that must be for him…seriously?
    His baby girl is now saying she identifies as a boy. That isn't something you just brush off and say "Ok thats cool." It takes time.

    Wait didn't he do the same thing when he peed on a girl on video? Denied it, and from the looks of it people forgot he had a video of himself having sex with an underage girl and pissing on her. So in other words deny everything, and you will be ok? Ignorance is bliss? lol
