Over the weekend, Tyrese joined Fat Joe for a chat on social media. At one point, the topic of R. Kelly came up and Tyrese felt the need to come to the disgraced singer’s defense.
He told Joe, “R. Kelly, with all of his videos, what he was doing musically and sonically, and how he figured out a way to change and evolve and stay relevant over all of those years.
"I know he has a lot of controversy and heat on him. I get it. Ain’t no need to get in my comments and if you write some goofy shit I’m going to say “it’s okay.”
Joe, who seemed confused at the rant, asked Tyrese, “No fear, no problem saying R. Kelly (inaudible)? Speaking about the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer, Tyrese suggested that everybody has some dirt, implying that there are people with similar "secrets" as R. Kelly, downplaying the seriousness of his crimes.
