French Montana is now clarifying his remarks that R. Kelly ought to be capable to take pleasure in his musical legacy regardless of the varied abuse allegations leveled towards him.
On Sunday (Jan. 13), the "NASA" artist went on his Twitter account to make clear his statements. French insisted that his "coronary heart is with the victims" and that he by no means thought that each one of his musical idols can be caught up in so many scandals.
"Let me be clear. My coronary heart is with the victims," he tweeted. "I by no means thought the folks I appeared as much as as a child, who sang and danced and gave me hope to grow to be a celebrity, would grow to be drug addicts, baby molestors [sic] and rapists. I hope we as a tradition create higher leaders. We want them."
This is in stark distinction to feedback he made earlier in the present day to TMZ. The 34-year-old rhymer advised the outlet that he thinks the veteran singer ought to be capable to take pleasure in his personal R&B legacy within the face of the various sexual abuse allegations towards him.
"[People] don't let no person have their legendary moments," French defined. “Let [R. Kelly] have his legacy. Let any person take pleasure in their legacy,” he continued. “Whatever occurred, occurred. He fought within the courtroom of regulation and gained.”
French is referring to R. Kelly’s May 2008 trial after he was charged with 21 counts of kid pornography. A jury finally acquitted the singer of all fees on June 14, 2008.
The Bronx native then added that Kelly is being handled the identical manner Michael Jackson was handled when child abuse allegations have been raised towards him. “All the greats went down like that,” he said.
