Da Brat Defends R. Kelly, Questions Parents’ Role
Many artists are speaking out against R. Kelly and Da Brat had a different take on the scandal.
Instead of taking it out on R Kelly, Da Brat questioned the role of the alleged victims’ parents, wondering why they did not keep tabs on their children.
TMZ reports that they caught up with the rapper in Atlanta and asked her about R. Kelly. She admits that she is close to R Kelly and has a long history of friendship with him. The pair apparently attended the same high school in Chicago, and he wrote her 1st demo song.
When it comes to “Surviving R Kelly,” Da Brat doesn’t believe that the alleged victims are lying and she does express her concern that Kelly needs to seek help, however, it is clear that she remains on his side.
“Where are the parents?” she asked, clearly voicing her opinion that the girls’ parents need to take responsibility for who their children hang out with.
