On September 28, Drea Kelly made an appearance on “Good Morning Britain,” where she discussed R. Kelly’s guilty verdict from the night prior. The singer’s ex wife admitted she felt sorry for her children, despite feeling for their victims.
“I feel that my heart is in two places,” Drea spoke out. “My heart definitely goes out to the survivors and the courage that it takes to come forward and tell the story, but my heart breaks as a mother because this is now the legacy that my children will have to deal with and their children’s children.” Though she has distanced herself from it, she’s afraid that her children won’t be able to. ‘”At the end of the day, you cannot walk away from your bloodline.”
“His blood runs through my children’s veins and it’s part of their DNA and they couldn’t escape it even if they wanted to,” She went on. “So it’s very difficult for me to sit in that position.” She said she would not interfere in the relationship between Kelly and her children, if they chose to support him. “It doesn’t matter if your parents have a problem with drug addiction — you are still going to love them because they are a part of your DNA, you share blood with them.”
Drea has accused Kelly of being abusive during their relationship. This didn’t sit well for the singer.
