Surviving R.Kelly My dad is a monster – R.Kelly’s daughter says

The musician, who was born by Andrea Lee, R. Kelly’s ex-wife, took to her Instagram Stories to talk about her father’s sex abuse scandal in a lengthy post.

She wrote:

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.

Buku added that it took her “nearly 3 days to write this.”

She continued:

I just want everyone to know that I do care and I love you all. This is a very difficult subject to speak on… again, I apologize if my words don’t come out right…

To everyone who reached out to my family and I, sending good energy and love…Thank you. You guys really helped push us through this hard time. This past year for my family has been very difficult, all the love and support you all continue to show is why we keep going. You all fuel us.

Family, friends, followers, fans, etc… I love you guys to pieces. Your love is appreciated & always will be.


  1. Thanks for that speech that’s to show the kind of man your father really is. We love you too. Thank you for revealing this knowledge of your father to us.

  2. Well spoken dear. The law will take its due course and if found guilty he will pay for his wickedness. May God grant you, your siblings and mother the grace and strength to pull through this try period of your lives

  3. well its her father and she cant change father. but i think no matter how bad she see him there is a good side

  4. Hmmmm, for his own daughter to be saying this that means she facing a lot and she know who is father really his. But for the sake of your children R Kelly please change your ways

  5. Thanks for revealing the kind of person yhur father is and its so sad to see r Kelly is a monster. I can’t believe I’m seeing this again

  6. You see why is good to always do good, if he has done good thing before will his family not support him. Even for his daughter to come out and say all this about her father calling him Monster it seem there is elements of truth in all thye claim he did

  7. English is the problem here. She didn’t call her father a monster.. what kind of news is this? She said ‘The same monster you all confronting me about is my father.’ meaning people has been calling her dad a monster.. she didn’t call him a monster. It’s a technical thing. Like an irony here

  8. Honestly this speech isn’t needed…you need to sit and ask yourself the true intent of posting such

  9. Well,no matter what happened to him,he is still your father,he kcater for you till now that you have grown up to a beautiful woman,so please respect him, even though he might be guilty of the offence

  10. For R.kelly daughter to call his father a monster shows his daddy past behavior is not accepted by her to humanity

  11. He’s your father no matter what happened between your mum and him its their private matter you should learn to forgive and forget this what this life is all about

  12. If your dad’s is a monster then what are you? A daughter of a monster. In respective of your grievances with your dad he needs your support this periods of trial his passing through.

  13. I still stand on the existing protocol, whatever you sow, that’s what you’ll reap. If Kelly messed things up when he had the opportunity and it gets to the point where the decisions and actions he took back then after he enjoyed all of them comes up in a different way to expose his bad deeds. My friend, he should face this case himself and suffer the consequences. After all he enjoyed it when he was doing them back then, that’s the law of kama.

  14. We appreciate your write ups and words. May God help you to keep standing tall irrespective of all these news about your Father.

  15. What the hell is she talking about even if your dad is why will you go out to social media to make his case worse my dear he is your dad if not for him you won’t have been born to this planet earth..

  16. well i see that she cant take this anymore that his why she is voicing out to the public to clear her mind but all the same he is still your father you should at least give him a little support

  17. although you are right, but your father will always be your father, you don’t have to call him a monster, you have really sin against God for abusing your second god

  18. Do not judge him that what the bible says, but anyways if you are also doing what is not good please change for the best

  19. With all your money and firm and you don’t have your family with you, i wonder what the person lived for. This is seriously serious. Family is the best a when one losses that hmmm its good to have a rethink sincerely

  20. look at this girl becos of what your dad did does not concern the affection he has for you fr calling him a monster. Did rkelly kill someone or buried the person alive nii ??

  21. It’s really sad and painful that your own biological Father will be involved in this kind of abuse.I know how you feel girl even the effect of this on you and your family. you guyz should try and get past this stage and move on

  22. Well spoken. Hope you guys take it in good faith. I pray you and your siblings recovers soon. Your father is really a monster.

  23. Rubbish. If you have personal issues with your father, deal with it and stop disgracing him social media. R Kelly is STILL innocent until proven otherwise.

  24. Hey am confused about this everyday issue,R kelly for ur own child to say this there is a possibility

  25. Children of ex wife will not support the father, let there be investigation and soon we will know all of it

  26. As a well trained daughter you don’t have to expose your fathers real face any way you wash him some forgive him because of your words

  27. All this American children that don’t have respect. She’s the daughter of an RX wife. I smell something fishy here.


  29. Well composed n matured word….This sooo touching….With all this reading it means this man is not responsible

  30. R Kelly iz really a monster both inside and outside? It is high time u surrender urself and change for a better

  31. Even if we don’t find some actions pleasing. There is polite way of sharing our opinions without insulting anyone

  32. R Kelly is finished.Only God can save you from this mess.Totally,he has been exposed and finished by his own daughter

  33. for his daughter to called him a monster says alot about the man Rkelly represents and stand for,so unfortunate

  34. Does Ryan Kelly want to turn into Osama bin laden of music. I don’t know again o. His own is too much

  35. For R Kelly’s daughter to come out in public and say such things about the father, means she has seen a lot. Though she should not have say it in public

  36. Y will u call your Father a monster even if is one u don’t av to let it out is still your father

  37. A father is a father no matter how the situations is,this is bad character calling father monster.

  38. People should really be careful about what they do so they don’t lose the love their family is supposed to have for them… If this daughter can come out and say these things openly then Rkelly is doomed

  39. People should really be careful about what they do so they don’t lose the love their family is supposed to have for them… If this daughter can come out and say these things openly then Rkelly is doomed… God help him

  40. The daughter has nailed it all. If she could call him that what else. Fathers should set right legacy for children so that they will forever be grateful to them

  41. Dey girl knows her father better, investigation will tell more on this ur case.. I just pray it not true. I like Kelly oo..

  42. Very kind of you, for revealing the kind of person your father is ,and its so sad to say R. Kelly is a monster. I can’t believe I’m seeing this again

  43. Nor matter what your dad did, you don’t have any right to call him a monster because his still your blood. Calling him a monster will not change anything, people will still see you as been disrespectful

  44. Shame to this have made your own flesh and blood to call you evil have failed as a father…

  45. Oh my God R Kelly what have you done that your daughter is calling you a monster,may God help you

  46. This is a big failure to Rkelly,but the daughter will be regret her words in the future because father is always a father the name given to him is too harsh.

  47. She has no right to call her Dad a monster no matter his offense. Young children of nowadays has zero respect for their parents.

  48. That was too bad for r-kellys for doing such kind of things to, many people’s, but his child really said a good about her view to that matter

  49. It is well but did not expect you to speak ill of your father no matter what he his still your small god I just hope all this can end once and for all

  50. No matter what the case may be i don’t expect that you’ll come out publicly to castigate your father. It’s not right dear.

  51. This girl is really intelligent, see how she diplomatically said her mind without much insult on her dad

  52. This is really serious, this R. Kelly case is getting worst, I pray he get out of it. Because I say anything for now, God knows best.

  53. Mehn….
    This is damn serious, for a child being speaking negatively against his father to this extend… well feel for the women, family this sex scandal is being done to…

  54. Even a tender age girl knows what her father’s behaviour look like, he should change for goodness sake

  55. Whether your father is an arm robber or what.. Please just no that he is still your father and nothing can change it dear

  56. If his daughter can say this, then R. Kelly should be investigated and prosecuted if found guilty

  57. What in God’s name is the meaning of this write up. Oh my God even his daughter is up against him

  58. Hmmm I still can’t believe his daughter could say all this in social media…I know one day the truth will surely be reveal

  59. Coming out to say this is courage. If all this is real, it means one can not pray to be like anybody. God bless Nigeria

  60. Thanks for speaking up and not support evil simply because he is your father because at the end everyone will answer for what they did.

  61. Speaking her mind is good at least she has shown she isn’t in support of his father’s ill dealings and this calls for R Kelly to come out

  62. Chai..this is serious oo
    For his daughter to say such thing
    It shows the kind of man he is to his family

  63. This is indeed serious, This will be an eye opener to many never to see someone and take him/her for a roll model without knowing more about the person’s character. Nevertheless, No matter what he has done, he’s still your Dad, forgive him and ride on …

  64. This girl gat lot of point oooo he really says the truth and for you r Kelly you really spoil things gan oooo God help us

  65. This people really want to bring R Kelly down. Just see the daughter too. She wouldn’t have come out publicly to say such

  66. No matter the case may be, his own daughter suppose not to say something like that

  67. No matter what, he is still your father. We all make mistakes n life one way or the other. I wish you all a good healing process.

  68. R kelly’s just proving himself ut everyday by the series of occurrences going on in social media with even his child saying he’s a monster proves he is only guilty

  69. Sa whatttt!!!!!? I’m totally speechless at this.even if your father is a monster as you claimed, do you have to tell the whole world about it??? Too bad

  70. I’m totally speechless at this.even if your father is a monster as you claimed, do you have to tell the whole world about it??? Too bad

  71. Without any reasonable doubt
    Clearly your intentions are good, true and pure
    And again your words did come out right
    It’s really hard digesting His monstrous acts
    Especially when the monster is one you call father
    But still
    Let it pass

  72. You have spoken well I pray that your dad because of you his children should repent and change his ways

  73. Calling her dad a monster really prove that R.Kelly has not in anyway live responsibly as concerning this allegation made against him.

  74. Forget your father my daughter and work hard to write your own better story. You have your life ahead of you.we love u

  75. What a story! Well every family has one or two things to deal with in life, how will deal with our own issue makes the different. I pray that God change your father’s way of life

  76. Honestly speaking, I asked why this is just coming up and the answer I got was the victims were too traumatized to speak up then. This is really going out of hand. Calling her father a monster for his acts invariably makes her a daughter of a monster.

  77. Well she’s right though but she should atleast try to hide her father’s shame,not making things worse

  78. It is with a deep heart r
    That R – kelly’s daughter said this,R Kelly should have sexual abuser, and maltreating his children, I hope his trial will change him

  79. No may hapiness at the end justice will take it cause. Learn to forgive and forget and dont forget he is still your father.

  80. Even for his daughter to come out and say all this about her father calling him Monster it seem there is elements of truth in all thye claim he did

  81. Is R Kelly really this bad?for his daughter to have say all sort of things about him,am highly disappointed with him

  82. We all know about that right now
    It’s very obvious to the people now that’s he’s guilty of all charges against him

  83. Nice speech gal. But that does not warrant you to called your father a monster! Respect your father no matter d situations on ground

  84. This whole issue is disgusting. I don’t want to say anything about it anymore, atleast till after the docuseries is complete.

  85. I think this girl has really fed up over her father’s life style, I just wish he could change because I so much love his music but all these sexual harassment against him is getting out of hands

  86. This man with all alacrity and sanctity he will satellite be found guilty and let it be the curse of the law
