R. Kelly‘s 14-year-old daughter Jaya Kelly has revealed that he is transgender. The teenager, who now goes by the name Jay Kelly, made the announcement via Facebook — describing himself as a “transguy”. He is now living and dressing as a male with the full support of his mother Andrea Kelly, according to several news sites.
As for the R&B crooner? Well, he is yet to comment publicly on Jay’s revelation but will hopefully be just as supportive. The 47-year-old recently released a new greatest hits compilation and is still promoting comeback LP Black Panties. He will headline the 107.5 FM WGCI Summer Jam on June 22 along with J.Cole, Trey Songz and Jennifer Hudson.
