R. Kelly is having a hard time accepting the fact he has a transgender child. The singer's 14-year old daughter, born Jaya Kelly, came out out publicly as a boy and want to be referred to as Jay.
One of Kelly's relatives is upset with him because he refuses to use the name Jay when speaking to or about his daughter.
"That's like calling him [R. Kelly] a background singer, not the king of R&B," Andrea Kelly .
The "I Believe I Can Fly" hit maker recently spoke with Chicago radio station WGCI about the situation.
"There [are] reports of your daughter becoming, you know, your son," Nina Chantele said. "Would you like to address that? Because ... a lot of blogs are saying that you're not addressing it."
"You don't wanna really open it up with saying my daughter's becoming my son," Kelly replied. "You know what I'm saying? ... Always believe what you see, with your own eyes, that is. Always believe what you see. That's the best way to go about this business. I've heard a lot of things about a lot of people, and it was never true."
