National R. Kelly's crisis manager resigns for 'personal reasons'

R. Kelly’s Crisis Manager Admits He Would Absolutely Never Leave His Daughter Alone With The Singer

However, R. Kelly (who illegally married Aaliyah when she was 15) has repeatedly and vehemently denied any allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse.

The jailed "I Believe I Can Fly" crooner's publicist Darrell Johnson stepped down Monday for "personal reasons" lawyer Steve Greenberg announced on Twitter - a mere hours after Johnson told CBS he would not leave his daughter alone with any accused "pedophile", including his own client.

Maybe Gayle King's line of questioning toward R. Kelly's crisis manager, Darrell Johnson, finally struck a cord.

During his interview with CBS Morning, Johnson told Gayle King that he wouldn't leave his 20-year-old daughter with anyone who is accused of being a pedophile. Johnson said R. Kelly is being held in solitary confinement and he was anxious that the singer may hurt himself.

When pressed to comment on whether or not that statement referred to Kelly, Johnson replied, "I would not leave my daughter with anyone that's accused of being a pedophile".

"Absolutely not", Johnson said. "Absolutely not!" Listen for yourself to the singer's self-described crisis manager.

Johnson: "I wouldn't leave my daughter with anybody that's accused of pedophilia". "R. Kelly?" she finished.

The interview began with Johnson speaking to the mental state of the Chicago R&B star who was indicted on multiple federal sex abuse crimes in IL and NY, all to which he pled not guilty. "Would you allow her to be alone with R. Kelly?".

If convicted of the charges, he could face a maximum of 195 years in prison.

In the event that you wanted to skip the above videos and were wondering how Kelly is faring in jail, according to Johnson, "He's a mess". He will have his day in court, and they'll have to bring the evidence.

Steve Greenberg is the criminal defense attorney who heads Kelly's legal team in Chicago, where the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer is now being held without bond.

"I spent a lot of time with Mr. Kelly and I would still say my eye is trained".
