R. Kelly’s crisis manager, Darrell Johnson recently sat down for an interview on CBS This Morning when he unequivocally stated that he wouldn’t leave his 20-year-old daughter around the R&B singer. “I wouldn’t leave my daughter with anybody that’s accused of being a pedophile,” Johnson said to Gayle King. His answer raised more than a few eyebrows considering that he is working for R. Kelly but Johnson said he doesn’t see a contradiction in his stance. Johnson stated that he wouldn’t leave his daughter around anyone, not just Kelly, who was accused of pedophilia.
