In 2014, R. Kelly's daughter, Jaya, came out as transgender. Kelly addressed the topic in an interview saying, "You don’t want to really open it up by saying my daughter is becoming my son. Don’t even give the blogs that kind of credit. Real talk. As far as that’s concerned always believe what you see, with your own eyes that is…. I've heard a lot of things about a lot of things, but it was never true… It’s not about me no more. It’s about three lovely, lovely kids. And then even when you see it with your own eyes, it’s a back story."
