Touré’s involvement in the documentary urged one woman to speak out.
Touré Neblett was one of the many voices to speak out in Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly documentary and because of that one woman has called him out since he’s participated inappropriate behavior towards women, as well.
An Instagram user who uses the handle @danimakeup commented on the video below, that sees Touré talking of Kelly’s disgusting behavior.
“Every Monday I used to work with him on a show in 2017 and he couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f**k me, what his c*m would look like on my face,” she wrote. “I had to have the crew stay in the room with me while I got him ready… and when I left I called HR… He got fired instantly.”
After the comment, Touré reached out to the woman’s DMs to share an apology which she shared to own Instagram story, as seen below. Touré has since released a statement to Essence:
“On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group. I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way. As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behavior. I have learned and grown from this experience.”
