Carey Kelly, brother to popular R&B singer Robert Kelly has revealed that he was sexually abused as kid.
He made the shocking statement during an interview for a new documentary series ‘Surviving R. Kelly’.
Carey explained that he confided in his brother that he was being sexually abused “by a family member” at the time, but confessed the singer ”didn’t really respond” and didn’t want to acknowledge what he had said.
“I was molested by a family member and that shook my world,” Carey said in front of the cameras. “I knew it wasn’t right even though I was six at the time. I was afraid to tell my mom. Robert, being my big brother, I brought that to him and told him what happened to me and when I told him he didn’t really respond to it like I thought he should.
“He said, ‘Naw, that didn’t happen to you’. I said, ‘Yes it did’. He said, ‘No it didn’t’. I left it at that.”
The R&B star previously claimed that he had been sexually abused by a relative from the age of seven, telling GQ magazine, “It teaches you to definitely be sexual earlier than you should have, than you’re supposed to. You know, no different than putting a loaded gun in a kid’s hand – he gonna grow up being a shooter, probably. I think it affects you tremendously when that happens at an early age. To be more hornier. Your hormones are up more than they would.”
