The "Saturday Night Live" comedian equated the church's sex abuse scandal with the singer's in a "Weekend Update" bit.
The 52-year-old R&B singer — who was arrested last month on 10 charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault on four victims, three of them underage — broke his silence during an interview with Gayle King.
Attorney Michael Avenatti says he turned over a video of R. Kelly "engaging in multiple sexual assaults of a girl underage."
People are accusing the singer of "sacrificing her music legacy" for R. Kelly, who faces several allegations of sexual abuse.
"It’s like people wanting to watch car wrecks, or other horrible scenes," said Gail Saltz, MD.
Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary series shows the R&B singer's relationship with Aaliyah in a disturbing new light.
