Andrea and Joann Kelly speak up about R. Kelly’s abuse

Her daughter Jaah Kelly was born and raised as a girl until 6 or 7 years old when they revealed that they were transgender and began living as a boy and using male pronouns. They then publicly came out in June 2014 and revealed that they were transgender, and likes girls, they changed their name to Jay Kelly. They embraced masculinity by wearing men’s clothes and going to the men’s restroom. However, in later years Jay realized that they only thought that they were transgender as they liked girls, due to their upbringing they believed that the only way that you could be interested in girls, was if you were a boy. This led Jay to believe that they must have been transgender. Now, the only label that they give themselves is that they like girls. Jay does not mind being referred to as male, female, gender fluid or non-binary. Jay identifies their relationship with their father as ‘really complicated’. Despite that, they are following the footsteps of their father and pursuing a career in music.

The other daughter of R Kelly, Joann Kelly, also known as Buku, is an emerging artist and songwriter. She grabbed the crowd’s attention through collaboration with her father on the single ‘Wanna Be There’, a song about their broken relationship.
