R. Kelly’s Camp Says Publicist Handed The Singer’s Number To Her Daughter
Last year, Kelly’s publicist, Regina Daniels, abruptly quit working for the crooner and released a statement vaguely saying ‘he crossed the line’.
Rumors would begin floating that Kelly had been having an affair with Daniels’ daughter, Maxine(seen here with Kellz).
Regina’s husband, George Daniels, a Chicago based music retailer and industry veteran, would confirm the rumors to Los Angeles radio station KJLH earlier this week saying his daughter, who was 21 at the time of the fling, came clean about the affair but Kelly denied it when he was confronted.
Kelly’s camp responded to the Daniels’ claims Friday (February 15) via a statement to TMZ saying not only did Regina and George know about he relationship, but they encouraged it.
“It’s hard to take seriously the moral outrage expressed by George and Regina Daniels over R. Kelly’s relationship with Mr. Daniels’ adult daughter, Maxine. The fact is that they had no problem with the relationship — indeed, they encouraged it — while Ms. Daniels was on Mr. Kelly’s payroll,” the statement read.
“It was Regina Daniels, then working as a publicist for Mr. Kelly, who persuaded him to attend her step-daughter’s 21st birthday party. And it was Regina Daniels who shortly thereafter gave her step-daughter Mr. Kelly’s private phone number, with the admonition: ‘Don’t tell your father’. It was only after Ms. Daniels resigned her position to avoid being fired for incompetence that her stepdaughter’s relationship suddenly became an issue for her and her husband.”
