Touré Neblett, a music journalist who interviewed R. Kelly for BET in 2018, appeared on Surviving R.Kelly to talk about his interview with the R&B legend. In the documentary, Touré said he didn’t get the answers he was looking for when it came to the musician’s “like” of teenage, particularly underage, girls

Earlier this week, Touré appeared on ‘The Clubhouse with Mouse Jones’ podcast to discuss Mr Kelly again. The interview was shared on the show’s Instagram post advertising the episode Touré appeared on. But one comment left on the post by someone caught the eye of social media users.

The lady who dropped the comment accused Touré of sexual harassment. The woman, a make-up artist who goes by the name Dani, said Touré sexually harassed her while she worked with him on a show. She wrote:

He couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f–k me, what his cum would look like on my face.

Dani claims she eventually quit the job in 2017 but reported Neblett to human resources after she left, and he was subsequently fired.

The make-up artist told Essence she had decided to go public with her claims after she saw Neblett on Surviving R Kelly and then doing interviews about the documentary series.

She said:

“When I saw him going around as R Kelly’s docuseries spokesman to different radio stations, the lies had to stop.

“I’ve worked with Mouse Jones before and wanted him to know the truth.”

Responding to the claims, Neblett said in a statement:

“On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group.

“I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way.

“As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behaviour.

“I have learned and grown from this experience.”

Neblett featured in the Lifetime six-part series which detailed sexual abuse and misconduct allegations against the US R&B singer who has sold more than 30 million albums.

The programme exposed claims that Kelly had forced women to have sex with him when they were underage and held them prisoner.

R. Kelly strongly denies all abuse allegations made against him – but has yet to comment publicly on reports he is being investigated by police in Georgia.

  1. Dani, said Touré sexually harassed her while she was working, I hope she has enough evidence to proof all she has said.

  2. I don’t understand what is happening with R Kelly.Many things are surrounding him.evil minded people.

  3. Why harassing women for sexual assault when there are a lot of women out there, who will satisfy u on bed

  4. Is this real every day sexually harrassing people there should be a serious measure taken to reduce this harrassing

  5. I hope all this people has tangible evidence against R Kelly. Because they are making him to gain popularity

  6. Could this be real, why are they accusing him without evidence, they should stop spreading this new abeg.

  7. I think this make up artist is trying to get reach. If truly she was harassed then she should prove it

  8. Like boss like followers.This in indeed bad.But why are the women just revealing the atrocities now?

  9. I think involving so much in surviving R kelly will definitely expose your secrets. No one is a saint . If the journalist is found guilty then he should be persecuted in such a way R kelly has being condemned

  10. Victim of sexual abuse should learn to speak up on time so as to have concrete evidence against the perpetrators

  11. If the journalist is found guilty then he should be persecuted in such a way R kelly has being condemned

  12. This is what I call Karma
    It will definitely come for you
    R kelly has lost it
    That’s all I have to say


  14. Wonder shall never end, this world is becoming something else oh. Imagine a man fusing a lady to have sex with him. If he really need that he get a girl or get married instead

  15. hmmmm… harrassing raised to power two… This people are so funny.. R. Kelly has not even through with his own…his journalist enter

  16. First it was a case with R.Kelly without a concrete evidence. Hope this lady has a strong evidence to prove these her claims too.

  17. This was meant on getting back at him but coming out to address the allegations with apologies is the most excellent approach to make it short lived

  18. This R Kelly issue is becoming so interesting by the day providing substantial prove or evidence is all they need

  19. I was starting to think this is just another cheap blackmail. But since the journalist in question agreed to the claim of harassing the make-up artist, then have got nothing against the lady. And I.think the journalist should just leave the r.Kelly documentary just so as to avoid further embarrassments

  20. I don’t understand what is happening. R Kelly here and there.
    Why can’t they just give a quality evidence so as to shot down this matter.

  21. Sexual harassments very often making its way to the headlines, newspapers. I hope this accuser has enough evidence to back her up.

  22. This is getting out of hand they should really do something about this if he’s guilty let him face the punishment.
