In an interview with Big Tigga, Ludacris decided to let everyone know what he truly meant, so that there would be no confusion and people would not misquote him. As a concerned father of girls, Ludacris obviously meant that although he has so much love for R.Kelly, for the amazing things he has brought to the music world, he would not trust him with his daughters.

While Ludacris respects Kelly as a legendary singer, he does not trust him to be close to his young daughters and that is all he meant.

Speaking of Kelly, also known as Robert Sylvester Kelly, the American singer and songwriter has been was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. These offences were against four women, of which three are minors. Kelly denied these allegations in 2019 and was granted a bail of $100,000.


Although he has been released on bail, the court ordered the singer to surrender his passport and was instructed not to interact with anyone below 18 years.

The bail was posted by an anonymous party as the singer could not come up with such a large sum of money.

On Monday, a proficient attorney known as Gloria Allred revealed that she was now the legal counsel for six women who are alleging that Kelly sexually abused them when they minors.

When he went back to jail after a self-surrender, the court said that the singer would remain locked up till his May 2020 trial.
