My daughter is brainwashed - R. Kelly lailasnews

According to TMZ reports, R. Kelly is not upset with Joann Lee Kelly for calling him a monster, because he thinks his daughter has been brainwashed by her mother.

The Rn B star, R. Kelly, had a musical collaboration in 2015 with Joann.

TMZ reports says that Drea brought R. Kelly’s children to his concert in Atlanta a couple years ago, but since then he’s had little contact with the children.

Drea expressed how she felt about the musician in Surviving R. Kelly. Although, Drea said she’s open to Kelly reaching out to the kids because they’re all adults and can make their own decisions.

Joann seems to have made her feelings extremely clear, but we’re told her father wants to repair the relationship. She wrote in a lengthy Instagram post;

Buku here. I just want to say a few things… Before I start I just want it to be known that I am speaking from the heart, nothing I say or do not say is to hurt ANY party reading this or affected by this.

To the people that feel I should be speaking up/against everything that is going on right now. I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently.

I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless. That is my last intention. I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father’s actions. Trust, I have been deeply affected by all of this.

However, It has been very difficult to process it all. Let alone gather all the right words to express everything I feel.

Anyone that knows me personally or has been following me throughout the years knows that I do not have a relationship with my father. Nor do I speak on him or on his behalf. I also am not fond of dealing with my personal issues or personal life through social media but, I feel things are starting to get out of hand.

Unfortunately, for my own personal reasonings & for all my family has endured in regards to him, his life decisions and his last name, it has been years since my siblings and I have seen or have spoken to him.

In regards to my mother, she for the same reasonings and more, has not seen or spoken to my father in years. My mother, siblings and I would never condone, support or be a part of ANYTHING negative he has done and or continues to do in his life.

Going through all I have gone through in my life, I would never want anyone to feel the pain I have felt.

Reminders of how terrible my father is, and how we should be speaking up against him, rude comments about my family, fabricating me, my siblings & our mothers ‘part’ etc. Does not help my family (Me, my sister, my brother, and my mother) in our healing process. Nor does it allow a safe space for other victims who are scared to speak up, speak up.

The same monster you all confronting me about is my father.

I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house. My choice to not speak on him and what he does is for my peace of mind. My emotional state. And for MY healing. I have to do & move in a manner that is best for me. I pray anyone who reads this understands I put nothing but good intent behind each word.


  1. R Kellys daughter is just expressing how she feels about her father and the allegations levelled against him,
    I disagree with the father for calling this brainwashing

  2. Honestly I don’t know what to say concerning this. But R Kelly should please own up to this allegations if truly he did it.

  3. I think the right word is let it go. Forgive. Though it sounds simple but hard to do. I have been in such situations before so I perfectly understand

  4. R Kelly seems not to be the singer I knew anymore. Will all this allegations, he is indeed a devil and monster.

  5. That is the consequences of neglecting your responsibility as a father, when a father is not close to the children they’re bound to listen to side talks. The only solution is to try and make up them and create that trust again.

  6. Ofcos that is what he will say, that she has been brain washed when everyone is testifying against him, everybody can’t be wrong at the same time

  7. I don’t think so children are smart thus days as u are doing they are watching ur steps

  8. If she is brainwashed you’re her father then you do something meaningful about it, seriously am tired of this R-kally issues all the time nobody knows what the truth is.

  9. Then you have to talk sense into her as your daughter; that is if you have moral standings to speak to her.

  10. I think R Kelly has come to the peak of his career, more evidence are still coming, he will not escape the judgment this time around

  11. Your daughter is brainwashed. Mr. R-Kelly, you have to amend your ways, put your house in order please. If your home is in order, your daughter would know how to address your family case well publicly.

  12. The girl must have really past through such experience while with her father. And any normal human won’t support such.

  13. I don’t know again who is saying the truth and who is telling the lies, only God knows let him fish out the culprits. They shouldn’t drag his kids to this

  14. You won’t blame her when you the father has refused to speak. But I think R. Kelly is saying the truth

  15. I wonder if R.Kelly is really the monster everyone is claiming he is or just someone that some haters try to pull down. I hope the truth will be finally out without lies involved.

  16. Everyone has the rights to his or her decisions. All these whites countries have a kind of family relationship that I don’t understand. African family settings is the best.

  17. Brainwashed or no brainwashed, maybe he has assaulted his daughter before,who knows?But he shouldn’t have gotten himself into this mess.

  18. The daughter might be brainwashed by her mother due to women have more influence on their children. But on the other hand, she might be telling the truth. Dont trust anyone

  19. They should be able to come out of this situation. Forgiveness is needed here. Child forgive your father and father should do the same

  20. The man has not been showing love to his family. See what it has caused him. Anyway let them sort themselves out.

  21. This Rkelly issue is going too bad,you have to take a sit with your family it’s a family matter.

  22. He will always be your father no matter what happened between you too and learn to forgive your father

  23. I don’t have to blame the daughter because this has to do with all the allegations concerning her father evil acts on teenagers in the past and her mum must have told her the same too. But is her daughter’s decision to accept her father or not because she’s an adult. The allegations against her father is so overwhelming and unbelievable and is not easy on her too because in a way it affects her. Just hope this allegations against her father R.Kelly be resolved soon and the truth be known to the world. I feel for the family because not an easy time for them now.

  24. This maybe the case, she may be brainwashed to speak against the father, one day we will know the truth

  25. This is so heartbreaking…no relationship between daughter and sad she felt pouring out everything she felt.

  26. What they did is very wrong and now they have separate the children from their father he needs to clear this allegations against him and settled with his children

  27. What is this common phynominon of living a separate home , having children separated , children will not know who their father really is , is a pity

  28. R Kelly daughter is only expressing herself. Wether the mother brainwash her or not, they should not involve their kids in their fued


  30. She is old enof to understand and interpreted ur attitudes towards her mom, if u were gud to them she wld knw

  31. Of course she loves her father, everyone does.but for her to speak up about the wrong he did shows courage on her part and it shows that she’s deeply hurt by what her father did

  32. You know what she don’t just leave her let her say it but she will surely make people hate you after she has wash her self

  33. when a father is not close to the children they’re bound to listen to side talks. The only solution is to try and make up them and create that trust again.

  34. My favourite foreign artist is goin tru alot this days… God help you. I love your music. .. very inspiring attimes

  35. I think no matter what, if truly you have not been messing up, she should have somewhere to stand for you. R Kelly just have to stop messing up.


  37. As far as I’m concerned he’s not guilty, R kelly is not guilty until he is proven to be guilty by a court as such, the case should be tried if proven guilty by a law court then he should face the penalty .

  38. The kid has really passed through what is called serious psychological trauma. Only God can help the children’s state of mind, I feel for her at this point.

  39. If he was a good and decent guy as he looked, maybe the daughter wouldn’t had been brainwashed.

  40. Well she just express the feelings she has throughout this allegations so this is not of her been brainwashed

  41. You did the right thing by speaking up… U also did well by apologizing to all affected victims that your dad I’ll treated. It’s a lot to process.. Wish you all the best as you go through this faze

  42. His daughter is still young and immature,,, it’s bad to address it father in such manner regardless of what he has done

  43. Do u say brainwashed who would believe ur own side of d story after all this allegations and evidence

  44. R Kelly’s issue self ehn,this one Iyaff tire me pH..this is issue should be dealt with fast fast,it has dragged on for too long

  45. Because she said the truth and said her mind, she’s now brain washed.R.kelly should just face his crime and the punishment awaiting him.What a shameless man

  46. This is family matter, it suppose not to be brought to social media.. And it is better to settle the matter amicably

  47. I don’t blame his daughter for calling him a monster,who knows what the girl have been through,forget all this famous people oo,must of them don’t value their family relationships

  48. The problem is that we don’t know whether it’s the truth or not…. Well with time we will know whether it is or not

  49. Well
    Guess Kelly’s been some sort of a deadbeat dad
    That’s why his daughter could say so
    These allegations are embarrassing
    So Kelly should be blaming himself for all these
