The singer attacked the ‘Huffington Post Live’ host with personal questions after she asked about the correlation between his dark past and his failed album.
R. Kelly just wouldn’t have it when it comes to questioning his dark past. The R ‘n’ B singer walked out of an interview with the “Huffington Post Live” host after being asked about his alleged sexual intercourse with the minors.
Kelly originally appeared on the live interview on Monday, December 21 to promote his album “The Buffet” which tanked in its sales. Host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani drew comparison between the album and the 2013’s “Black Panties”, asking whether Kelly believed his sexual abuse allegations had complicated public’s view on his artistry.
“When you think about R. Kelly, I think people find it very difficult to not think about the multiple lawsuits, the multiple allegations, of you having inappropriate relations, sexual relations, with minors,” she said. “What do you say to those people who find it conflicting?” Kelly replied, “I say, F**k that. I say, I have a lot of fans around the world that love R. Kelly.”
When Modarressy-Tehrani tried to dig deep into the matter, Kelly began to fire back. He questioned her intelligence, her drinking habits and threatened to walk out. He did end the interview on a bad note, saying “I’m in New York to have a great time. And I didn’t come here to let you spoil that.”
