By Abiola Odeleye

Last week, American television station Lifetime aired a six-part documentary series on R&B singer R Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse and sex cult. The series interviewed 50 different people, including his ex-wife and several other women who claim to have been molested and manipulated by the 51-year-old musician over the last two decades. Many of them shared how they were victims of his depraved sex ring.

While the series producer dream hampton revealed that a number of other entertainers like Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Celine Dion,?uestlove and Dave Chapelle– all of who declined to be part of the series. Only John Legend did.

That has not stopped other entertainers from pitching into the conversations on social media. Jad Pinkett-Smith, NEYO, Kerry Washington are some of the people who have spoken openly about the series and the embattled R Kelly.

I’m not feeling R after watching that …. it’s so much filthy shit going on in this industry nobody will ever really speak on the wild shit because most of them could have docs like this or even worst done about them! https://t.co/4tJxRHvLbQ

Many of these stories I was hearing when I, myself, was wayyyy underage. Making my first couple albums at 12 and then 14/15. I was a HUGEEEEE R Kelly fan, came from a broken home, had daddy issues, and wondered… how did these girls get chosen? I wondered if I could/would be.

People need to understand that abusers are charming, persuasive, manipulative and saavy. These are not people in dark alleys, or white vans. You go to church, and school with them. They are people you think are so upstanding #SurvivingRKelly

As an artist & a champion of the arts, I am moved to share my position on #SurvivingRKelly which I haven’t seen but felt compelled to voice my position on this very serious issue since #rkelly has written songs for #B2K.
