R. Kelly sat down with GQ Magazine this month, and opened up about a host of things, including his take on the allegations that Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted numerous women over the course of his career.
Having been through similar accusations, Kelly understands what Cosby is going through and refuses to believe the allegations.
“Well, my opinion on that is, I don’t know what happened,” he told the magazine. “I’m a fan of Bill Cosby’s from the Bill Cosby show, of course—who’s not?—and for me to give my opinion on something that I have no idea if it’s true or not, all I can say is that it was a long time ago. And when I look on TV and I see the 70-, 80-, 90-year-old ladies talking about what happened when they were 17, 18, or 19, there’s something strange about it. That’s my opinion. It’s just strange.”
The only way Kelly would believe the allegations would be if a divine intervention took place.
“If God showed me that they were telling the truth, I would say that’s wrong,” he admitted. “I don’t care if it was a zillion years ago. But God would have to do that, because God is the only one can show me that. No man can tell me that. No woman can tell me that. And when you wait 70 years, 50 years, 40 years, to say something that simple, it’s strange. You know why I say that is because it happened to me, and it wasn’t true.”
