Father Of Azriel Clary, One Of R. Kelly’s Alleged ‘Sex Slaves,’ Responds To Master P’s Criticism Of Victims’ Parents
As the world continue to process the shocking details of Lifetime’s six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, several celebrities have offered their takes on the revealing claims, especially where the parents are concerned. Hip hop mogul Master P placed harsh criticism on the parents involved and now one of them is firing back.
Angelo Clary, the father of 21-year-old Azriel Clary who is one of R. Kelly’s rumored sex slaves, gave a recent interview with The Quicksilva Show where he addressed the documentary, but also responded to Master P’s recent comments regarding the parents lack of involvement in properly protecting their children.
In a video posted after the documentary series concluded, Master P gave his opinions on the situation and placed a large majority of the blame on the parents. He also criticized the fact that an issue so serious should have been broadcast on a network like CNN, not Lifetime, which is known for its salacious biopics and reality shows.
“If somebody daddy and you knocking on the door—they got your daughter in there, y’all already know,” Master P said, “I ain’t gonna be on no reality show, Lifetime, I’m gonna be on CNN. Straight up.” The former rapper went on to explain that he would have taken far different measures to protect his child, and that the parents should have never been behind the cameras in the first place. He also said, “You shouldn’t be on there unless you on CNN from a jail cell,” While he’s not sure “if R. Kelly did it or not,” it’s not “his business,” because he’s “not judging,” he said that, “those parents shouldn’t have let it go that far.” He concluded saying that he doesn’t respect the parents or their motives because “if you got love for your kids, you going to war behind your kids.”
Well, now Angelo Clary has fired back at Master P in a big way. He says that the parents shouldn’t be blamed at all and that all blame should be placed with R. Kelly because he is the one committing the crimes against young women. He also took aim at Master P’s critiques that he didn’t do enough, stating that if he would have physically harmed or killed R. Kelly in defense of his daughter, Master P wouldn’t be writing him a check to help his family financially if he got arrested.
Clary said, “Ya’ll love [R. Kelly], everybody love him, that’s why won’t nobody speak up on it. That’s why Master P will say something about the parents, but I didn’t see Master P acknowledge that R. Kelly is a predator. That hurts my heart ’cause that should have been the first ting out his mouth.” Clary continued his sentiments, adding “Master P ain’t gon’ write my family no check when I’m sitting there doing 30 years for killing R. Kelly. So bruh, if you gon’ speak on something, speak on the predator, not someone who gotta pay bills and support his family.”
As the days go by, expect to see new details continue to unravel with this entire thing. The latest development is that the Facebook page that was supposed to expose R. Kelly’s accusers was abruptly taken down for violating community standards, however the survivinglies.com website appears to still be forthcoming.
