Hollywood director John Singleton recently came to Kells’ defense amid the heated drama.

“No, he’s not misunderstood. I mean, he has a bunch of girlfriends, you know, a lot of people have a bunch of girlfriends. The women that he’s with are adult women and they made decisions to be with him and they know what they are getting into. I don’t see what the controversy is.” (TMZ)

Recently, rap manager Wack 100 shared his opinion on the Kelly controversy.

Early Friday, rap star 50 Cent likened R. Kelly to fictional “Power” character James “Ghost” St. Patrick.
