Many folks had something to say about the song, and one person who knows R. Kelly better than most has now responded to the piece.
R. Kelly's ex-wife, Drea Kelly, took to Instagram on Tuesday, July 24, to clap back at the Chicago artist:
THE REMIX: Admit it Admit it Admit it Your mama IS watching over you And rolling over in her grave because of the ABUSIVE things you do You say she’s looking down from heaven So there’s nothing she didn’t see Which means she saw you BEAT me from heaven and neglect her grand babies......Admit it Admit it Admit it Your children you don’t see Because you treat them like your fans And not your flesh and blood, please Being a dead beat dad is a conscious choice You could face time w them EVERYDAY they’d SEE your face and HEAR your voice,so..... Admit it Admit it Admit it Then go get some professional help Own the pain that you’ve inflicted on others’ All by yourself Even though you can’t read or write it didn’t stop you from making hit songs But you don’t have to read or write to know Domestic Violence is wrong, so.... Admit it Admit it Admit it Your past is not is an excuse Just because you were abused doesn’t mean you get to ABUSE..... Admit it Admit it Admit it Cause the TRUTH will set you free Nothing good is gonna come to you UNTIL YOU DO RIGHT BY ME. #domesticviolenceawareness #survivor #free #truth #speak @theshaderoom @tmz_tv @thejasminebrand_ @balleralert @bet @people @billboard @theviewabc @wendyshow @iamsteveharveytv @johnlegend @theellenshow @ncadv
In the post, Drea Kelly accuses R. Kelly of neglecting his children and even addresses his issues with literacy. Drea also claims R. Kelly was abusive while they were married.
Despite his attempt to gain sympathy by referencing his past traumas, Drea argues that a traumatic past is no excuse to become a criminal.
"Your past is not is an excuse, just because you were abused, doesn’t mean you get to ABUSE," she wrote.
Drea hit R. Kelly with the Celie "two finger curse" from The Color Purple, which is fitting, especially given her domestic violence allegations against him.
"Cause the TRUTH will set you free, nothing good is gonna come to you, UNTIL YOU DO RIGHT BY ME," she concluded.
According to VH1, the couple divorced in 2009, following a 13-year marriage. Prior to this most recent Instagram post, Drea had addressed victim-shaming she has suffered in the past and has shown support for fellow women who have suffered domestic violence.
First I’d like to say thank you to all my #DREAmers and those who support me on this journey. To the ones that come on my page to spew venom and #victimshame You are by far the biggest supporter of my abuser. By you shaming me and any other victims you’re helping the abuser accomplish their task of belittling, intimidating, and discounting all the abuse they’ve put the #victim and #victims through! PERIOD! No two ways about it. I almost allowed you and your hate to overshadow all the LOVE AND SUPPORT I RECEIVE. But you WILL NOT stop me from saving lives and giving hope to those who are where I was. I AM A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS! I am a #SURVIVOR OF #SEXUAL ABUSE #EMOTIONAL ABUSE #PHYSICAL ABUSE #ECONOMIC ABUSE at the hands of my EX husband. For years I was fearful to come forward with my FULL truth. You trolls pass judgment and say that I never spoke of it before now but clearly you have not been following me or my journey if you look on my Instagram you see where I HAVE POSTED several times about being a survivor of domestic violence. Just because your curiosity wasn’t satisfied DOESN’T MEAN my HORROR WASN’T REAL....like for real FUCK YOU AND HIM! To my #SURVIVORS I LOVE YOU ALL AND WE GOT THIS! To the ones still in it YOU ARE NOT ALONE! You will get away I DID 💜🙏🏽
