John Singleton has voiced an opinion on R. Kelly’s latest controversy, claiming that the women in Kelly’s life are “mature” and that “A lot of people have a bunch of girlfriends.”
Kelly has been under a heap of controversy after Buzzfeed published an article exposing similarities between Kelly’s relationship situation with two women and a “cult” that involves sex. The claims haven’t received many responses from those who’ve worked with Kelly in the past.
Singleton, the “Baby Boy” director, claimed that “The women that he’s with are adult women… And they made the decision to be with him, and know what they’re getting into so I don’t see what the controversy is really about.”
One of the women in this situation with R. Kelly recently spoke about it, trying to de-escalate the speculation from the media saying that she’s “totally fine… happy where I’m at and everything is okay with me.”
