*K. Michelle is catching heat for taking to social media to praise R. Kelly and wanting him released from jail so he can help guide her career.
“I swear if Rob was here so many of my musical questions would be answered,” she tweeted. “If you have a mentor u need to learn as much musically as possible, but I took so days of learning for granted never knowing this would happen to him.”
She also believes that Kelly is being “crucified” and that he has a “sickness.” “No one will ever understand how heavy it is watching the person who saved your life be crucified in front of the world for their sickness,” she added.
I’m trying to create the most genuine Last R&B record and I really need to play it for him but u can’t,” she wrote. “It hurts. I have to be confident In my skills and do this alone.”
K. Michelle claims she is not condoning Kelly’s alleged sex crimes.
“Once again i’m not defending single soul. Wrong is wrong,” she wrote. “But within separating the man from the music, musically I’ve trusted him my whole career and now it’s time to trust my own self. No one will ever understand how heavy it is watching the person who saved your life be crucified in front of the world for their sickness,” she concluded
As expected, the singer is being hit with backlash for suggesting that having her mentor’s guidance is more important than Kelly’s alleged victims receiving justice.
Michelle responded to the criticism in another series of tweets. “No regrets I say what I say. Ain’t my fault people didn’t pay attention in elementary school and can’t comprehend that im not defending anyone. I’m talking about MY STORY, MY LIFE. No soul alive will take my God given rights 2feel,” she wrote.
