Carey Kelly, brother of R. Kelly, has accused the musician of sexually abusing his 14-year-old female cousin.
Carey described his brother as “demonic” during an interview with unWinewithTashaK, adding that he has a “control problem”.
When asked about the allegations that R. Kelly impregnated the cousin, Carey couldn’t confirm or deny it.
“I can’t say…there hasn’t been any DNA for anything done,” he said.
“Actually didn’t get pregnant till she was seventeen. What I do know is, when it took place, there was a lot of turmoil between the family and different things like that.
“The only reason why he targets little girls, now that I’m older, I understand.
“He was molested. I was molested too, but I didn’t turn out that way. I became a protector of children. I didn’t want kids to go through what I went through, especially my daughters.”
He declined to say who allegedly molested them when they were young.
R. Kelly’s has been at the center of numerous scandals over the years. Despite the series of sexual assault allegations against him, the singer still has a large fan base across the world.
Reacting to this, Carey said: “A lot of people didn’t believe the allegations because of who he is and that’s how he’s been able to sustain in this business as an artist and as human being without being locked away.
“It’s almost hard to believe that this icon, this superstar, would do things of that nature.”
