R. Kelly had a backstage interview where the interviewer asked him if he’d like to address his transgender child.

The soul singer did not talk make a direct comment about his transgender daughter but he did say that he didn’t want to refer as his son.

"You don't really wanna open it up by saying my daughter is becoming my son. Don't even give the blogs that kind of credit. You know what I'm saying? Real talk."

He had a daughter named Jaya and at the age of 14 she decided to get a sex change. She also made the choice to change her name to Jay and thanked his mother for her support on Twitter/Instagram.
