JoJo Shares Shocking Memories Following "Surviving R. Kelly"


Jojo could have achieved what Tamar Braxton had tried in her now-deleted put up. The “Leave (Get Out)” singer had quite a bit to say after watching Lifetime’s docuseries targeted on R. Kelly‘s intercourse scandals which embrace incidents involving minors. This narrative appears to have struck a chord within the younger singer, having grown up working within the trade with a few of Kelly’s associates. Like Tamar, Jojo is appalled by the truth that many individuals had been conscious of the R&B icon’s actions and easily let the sample proceed, even leveraging his conduct as studio banter. The following gathers the insights Jojo provided by way of social media.

To know that many males I’ve identified all through my profession (girls too, little question, however overwhelmingly extra males) labored so intently with R. Kelly and KNEW and in some circumstances SAW the abuse occurring + advised tales about these items in studio periods prefer it was humorous and no person got here ahead?

looks as if many continued 2make cash off of him and stick round, thus condoning his disgusting predatory methods. Were they sticking round for extra “ridiculous Robert Kelly tales” they might inform in personal studio periods later down the road? … the R Kelly tales I’ve heard in periods!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many of those tales I used to be listening to after I, myself, was wayyyy underage. Making my first couple albums at 12 after which 14/15. I used to be a HUGEEEEE R Kelly fan, got here from a damaged residence, had daddy points, and questioned… how did these women get chosen? I questioned if I might/could be.

Im certain it’s means simpler SAID than DONE to return ahead whenever you see some wild sh*t occurring proper in entrance of you… however COME THE HELL ON. When dealing w youngster abuse can it grow to be a reflex!???? SH*T!

We should acknowledge that as we speak, in America, the colour of an individual’s pores and skin + their/ their households socio-economic standing both ensures or denies them safety. Some individuals’s tales are prioritized & believed over others. Some are blamed & victim-shamed.

There are patterns. Do you see? This is unacceptable. #SurvivingRKelly
