Actress and TV personality Pearl Thusi did not mince her words when she spoke out against the R&B singer

“I don’t listen to R Kelly anymore. And I do miss listening to his music.

“But in an effort to support the movement fighting GBV – my daughter won’t ever know his music or contribute to Kelly’s legacy – financially or otherwise.”

Pearl added that, even though she received backlash from black men for her views, she remained undeterred.

“Ladies. It’s up to us to protect ourselves. The number of black men attacking me for being against this R Kelly thing shouldn’t surprise me. But it’s still disappointing.”

John Legend said that he did not care what other people thought about his appearance in the documentary.
