*R. Kelly may be known for being the center of various kinds of situations, but it’s the R&B singer’s daughter who is commanding the current spotlight.
Media sources report that 14-year-old Jaya Kelly has come out as a transgender man. Jaya made the announcement last week on his Facebook page, saying he is a “transguy” and is now going by the name Jay.
Right now, Jay has female organs, but wants to have a full sex change surgery and will start taking testosterone.
“[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much.’ She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.’ And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me… I believe I am a boy and want surgery, and the medication to help me who I was supposed to be.”
That may be what his mother and sister told Jay, but as far as the public is concerned, it’s all crickets from from Andrea and R. Kelly regarding the situation. Whether the family will break their silence and discuss Jay’s life is unclear.
