In the wake of the shocking abuse allegations levied in Lifetime’s ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ the singer has been slammed left and right. Indeed, on an almost daily basis, both the public and his peers have been condemning the fallen 52-year-old.
However, he appears to have found an ally of sorts in the form of rapper French Montana.
TMZ caught up with the MC last night and quizzed him about the topic on everyone’s lips and his words will no doubt surprise many.
For, while stopping short of giving the star an outright endorsement, French claimed Kelly has long made clear who his is lyrically and that he should “be allowed to enjoy his legacy.”
He also seemed to imply that the “take down” was the result of a higher agenda and drew connections to Michael Jackson – this, despite the latter being cleared of all charges.

Granted folk are entitled to their opinions, there’s something woefully worrying about the stance French appears to express. One which, on the one hand, seems to acknowledge the possible validity of the accusations, yet one that simultaneously minimises the heinous acts in the name of maintaining a musical legacy.
