R. Kelly’s Daughter Admits She Was ‘So Scared’ to Come Out as Trans and Lesbian Miss2Bees July 11, 2019 Her Source, Hip Hop News | Trending Hip Hop Stories R. Kelly and Andrea Kelly’s daughter, Jaah Kelly, graced the cover of Paper Magazine for pride and discussed coming out as a transgender man four years ago, and now a lesbian. “When I posted that video, I was so scared,” says Jaah about a post she made, coming out as trans. “When I was younger, I always felt like I had to make a choice. I knew that I was a girl who liked other girls. But because of what I was taught, I felt like the only way you could like another girl is if you were a boy.” During the interview she told a story about the time she attended Chicago pride with her sister Buku Abi after identifying as a transgender man and was called out for using the women’s bathroom. She fell into a deep depression after coming out as trans and checked herself into a mental facility for three weeks. But she feels better now identifying as a lesbian. “I identify as a lesbian, I know I like girls, but that’s as far as I’ll go to label myself,” Jaah said. “It’s up to you how you see me. Either way, I don’t care. I stand in my truth, and why does my truth need a label?” View this post on Instagram We see you, Jaah Kelly. #linkinbio Photographer: @christian__cody Writer: @michaelxomichael Stylist: @metta_conchetta Groomer: @legendaryartz A post shared by Paper Magazine (@papermagazine) on Jun 27, 2019 at 7:08am PDT Shout outs to the 18-year-old for living in her truth.
