Rolling Stone x Arrest of R. Kelly

ROLLING STONE reached out about today’s charges. I shared my opinion from a legal stand point quoted below:

“Although long over due I am pleased that authorities have finally stepped up to the plate and done a thorough investigation. But I want the public to keep in mind from a legal standpoint this is just the beginning. The real fight is in front of us. We've been here before with R Kelly and he walked away a free man. So I'm putting my hope that this time will be different, that this is the beginning of the process that brings an actual conviction and justice for survivors like my client Kitti and the families waiting to be reunited with their daughters.”

MEDIA MENTION: Rolling Stone on #TimesUp for R. Kelly

MEDIA MENTION: Rolling Stone on #TimesUp for R. Kelly

I was mentioned by after Times Up officially launched a campaign joining forces with the #MuteRKelly movement to demand industry action and consumer activism against the R&B singer who has yet to face repercussions despite decades worth of evidence and countless survivors including client Kitti Jones detailing the abuse, starvation, and sexual assault at the hands of Kelly. I am a proud member of Times Up and applaud their Women of Color working group for putting R Kelly at the top of their action list. 

Kelly's team responded to the campaign comparing the efforts to a public lynching of a black man of which Rollings Stone cover the opinion of myself, Ms. Jones, and others. Find out my thoughts and read the full article here:

CLIENT NEWS: Kitti Jones Profiled by Rolling Stone Magazine

Rolling Stone sat down with my client Kitti Jones and released an indepth profile of her harrowing experience with R&B singer R. Kelly. 

I want to commend Kitti for her bravery in stepping forward and no longer protecting her abuser by staying silent. I want to also sincerely thank Jason Newman and the staff at Rolling Stone for the care and depth they took to highlight my client's experience.

Her is experience is only unique in that it involves a celebrity. We all saw the #MeToo hashtags litter our timelines. Thousands experience physical, sexual, emotional, and psychological abuse everyday.
