Zaytoven Says He Doesn't Pay Attention To R. Kelly Allegations
Zaytoven says that he has not paid attention to R. Kelly's ongoing sexual assault allegations. The Atlanta producer was asked about R. Kelly and his troubling history accusations from various women when he appeared on Open Late with Peter Rosenberg. According to Zaytoven, the singer's musical accomplishments are one the reasons he has not given serious thought to Kelly's alleged crimes.
"R. Kelly to me, is my time, he's almost like the Michael Jackson music," he said. "I haven't really paid the stories that much attention. It could be due to the fact that I think he's so great a musician that I don't even care about or wanna hear the stories that's going on."
When Rosenberg brought up the allegations Kelly holding women in his house against their will, Zaytoven seemed hesitant to believe the women. "Kidnapping? Nah... I think any woman that's going with R. Kelly, whatever, that's the choice that they chose to do," he said.
Kelly's music was recently removed from Spotify's ficial playlists as part their Anti-Hate policy. In May, Kelly was accused sexual abuse by two more women. A Lifetime documentary series will reportedly investigate Kelly's alleged sex cult, and will feature involvement from Tim Savage, father Jocelyn Savage, who he claimed was being held captive by the singer last year.
