Tyrese Gibson faces backlash after he defended R. Kelly in an online interview with Fat Joe.
The actor and singer joined “The Joprah Show” IGTV series where host Fat Joe asked whether R. Kelly should still receive praise as an artist despite being in jail awaiting prosecution for multiple sex crimes.
Tyrese admits the “Seems Like You’re Ready” singer currently “has a lot of controversy and heat on him, but goes on to applaud Kelly for his music and his ability to “…evolve and stay relevant over all of those years.”
“…Everybody is involved in something that they don’t ever want people to know about publicly,” Tyrese says, “You know what? Let God do his job.”
Although the clip has caused many to question the singer’s morals, Tyrese stands firm on his beliefs and had this response, “This interview ain’t for kids and childish folk with short attention spans…we went all the way tonight.”
