I can’t go back, but I can go forward and continue to support women, men and people of all sexual identities, and of all races, who are victims of sexual assault. I have demonstrated my stance on this issue and others many times throughout my career. I share this not to make excuses for myself, but to explain. Til it happens to you, you don’t know how it feels. But I do know how I feel now.
I intend to remove this song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms and will not be working with him [Kelly] again. I’m sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner.
Her message arrived as protests kick off outside Kelly’s Chicago lair and after Mathew Knowles revealed how and he and his then-wife Tina Knowles protected a teenage Destiny’s Child from him and his crew of enablers.
