R. Kelly’s Ex-Wife Speaks Out On His Conviction – VIDEO

“If any of his victims were blonde and blue-eyed it wouldn’t have taken this long,” Drea Kelly said.
Disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly was found guilty on Monday (Sept. 27) of all nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. His ex-wife of 13 years, Drea Kelly, is now speaking out.
In an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Drea said, “[It’s important] that women are supported to even feel like they have the strength to come forward and tell their stories. If they’re still victim shaming, victim-blaming, and women being afraid to speak their truth, we can never get to a court system where justice can be served.”
She continued, “I’ve always said if any of his victims were blonde and blue-eyed it wouldn’t have taken this long. Women of color tend to be lowest on the totem pole when it comes to subjects of domestic violence and sexual abuse.”
Drea also said her marriage to the 54-year-old was “a life of constant fear … walking on eggshells … the intimidation, never knowing which version of him you’re going to get.”

They had three children together and divorced in 2009.
Watch the interview below:

A jury of seven men and five women found Kelly guilty of racketeering predicated on criminal conduct including sexual exploitation of children, kidnapping, forced labor, and Mann Act violations involving the coercion and transportation of women and girls in interstate commerce engage in illegal activity.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 4. R. Kelly is facing life in prison.
