R. Kelly’s Estranged Daughter Buku Abi Breaks Her Silence

The same monster you all confronting me about is my father – Buku Abi.

R.Kelly’s estranged daughter with ex-wife Andrea Lee Kelly, Buku Abi, took to her Instagram Story on Thursday to address allegations against her father sparked by Lifetime’s recent docu-series.

Through a long heartfelt message, Abi apologized for taking so long to say something, saying that she’s been searching for the right words for days.

Abi also expressed sympathy and devastation for all of the women who’ve been allegedly victimized by her father. She also made it clear the neither her, her mother nor her siblings condone any of R. Kelly’s negative behavior—past or present.

According to reports Abi also claims that she and her family have not had any relationship with Kelly for years. Also adding … “The same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house.”

Despite allegations over the years and most recently, Lifetime’s 6-part docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly,” Kelly has continued to deny all claims.
