K. Michelle Says ‘It Hurts’ Making Music Without R. Kelly: I Took Days Of Learning For Granted Without Knowing This Would Happen To Him

K. Michelle had a moment of reflection about her working relationship with disgraced singer R. Kelly. 

He’s currently behind bars and awaiting trial for several serious charges including child pornography and racketeering.

K. Michelle took to Twitter early Wednesday morning (Dec. 9th), and spoke on their connection, suggesting she took him for granted not knowing he would be behind bars. She wrote:

“I swear if Rob was here so many of my musical questions would be answered. If you have a mentor u need to learn as much musically as possible, but I took so days of learning for granted never knowing this would happen to him.”

She continued:

“I’m trying to create the most genuine Last R&B record and I really need to play it for him but u can’t. It hurts. I have to be confident In my skills and do this alone.”
She added that she’s not taking up for him, but said it’s been difficult watching him go through a public downfall.
“Once again i’m not defending single soul. Wrong is wrong but within separating the man from the music, musically I’ve trusted him my whole career and now it’s time to trust my own self”
No one will ever understand how heavy it is watching the person who saved your life be crucified in front of the world for their sickness
This isn’t the first time K. Michelle has opened up about her past with R. Kelly.
While on The Real in December 2017, she spoke accusations that he allegedly abused women and underage girls and said:
“That is kinda tricky for me because I see it from two different perspectives. I see it as this is my mentor. He taught me everything I know about recording, about how to write the importance of just doing music. And you want to have loyalty for that, but at the same time, I was the girl who was saying something happened to me and the world told me that it didn’t happen.

And so, when I’m looking on the blogs and I see these girls telling their stories and women, all up under these comments like ‘That didn’t happen, she lying.’ It breaks my heart because cuz I was once that girl, somebody know the truth. Nobody gonna take up for me?
I’m not here to say if those girls, did they do that, whatever. All I know is that everything isn’t always what it seems, especially in the music business.”
