The older sibling of the new Duchess of Sussex addressed mounting claims that she has financially benefitted from her connection to the royal in a new Monday interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
“I worked in media most of my life and in broadcasting, so because my sister is suddenly royal isn’t grounds for me to stop doing all of that,” she said on the morning program. “Let’s face it—we all have to survive. Money makes the world go round, so if you want to call that cashing in, that’s fine, but I think no one in media would refuse a paycheck for talking about the royal and, as a family, we’re not subject to royal protocol.”
As she continued, “Why would I stop living because we have a family issue going on?”
R. Kelly Responds to John Legend’s Criticism and Sex Cult Claims
R. Kelly addresses the criticism he’s faced — based on long-standing allegations of sexual misconduct — and the condemnations from John Legend and Steve Harvey, among other stars.
And in his new song “I Admit” — which Kelly released on Facebook Live on Sunday, July 22 — the singer targets those accusations.
“What’s the definition of a cult?” he sings. “What’s the definition of a sex slave? / Go to the dictionary, look it up / Let me know, I’ll be here waiting / Some like to get branded / And what some of these girls want, is too much for the radio station / Look, I’m just a man, y’all / Not a monster or beast / But I admit there are times when these girls so fine, they’ll chill with a [n-word] for a week.”
The three-time Grammy winner also calls out Legend, Harvey and radio host Tom Joyner, all of whom have spoken out about the accusations against him. “I admit it, I love Steve Harvey / John Legend and Tom Joyner,” Kelly sings on the track. “They’re doing good in their lives right now, why would they wanna tear down another brother?”
Additionally, Kelly responds to rumors he has slept with underage girls: “I admit I f—k with all the ladies, that’s both older and young ladies / But tell me how they call it pedophile because that s—t is crazy / You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions / But really, am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion?”
