Addressing a matter from jail, former international superstar R Kelly calls the 13-track I Admit It album a scheme devised to implicate him in court. Kelly isn’t acknowledging anything about the album, before its release on Friday, December 9th.
The album, which was published on several streaming services, was removed from Apple and Spotify a short while later.
In his attempt to overturn his most recent statement, the discredited singer instantly dismissed the notion that he would release any records at this time, particularly anything that features the lines “I admit it”.
In a conversation with his attorney Jennifer Bonjean, the entertainer says he was impersonated via a voice recording that was released on YouTube.
“He then put it out there, as if it were me putting it out and I’m not putting out any albums,” said the now incarcerated singer.
He also went on to say in the recording, “It seems like somebody wants this album now to mess with the appeal because… Why would I put an album out called I Admit It?”
Following their investigation, the FBI concluded that R. Kelly lacks the authorization to access recording equipment and is unable to do so. His legal team is also looking into possible uploaders of the songs before taking any further action.
