Say WHAT?! – R. Kelly and Andrea Kelly’s Daughter Transgender?

Just when you thought the tea was done being spilled! Well here’s the story


Jaya (Jay) Kelly, the youngest child of R. Kelly and reality star Andrea Kelly, has come out as transgender and is making the transition from female to male.

Jay Kelly, the youngest child of Hollywood Exes star Andrea Kelly and ex-husband R. Kelly, is speaking out about plans to transition from female to male. Born 13 years ago as Jaya Kelly, Jay (on Instagram as @mi_ylno_namuh) talks about his journey and transition on where he answers questions from anonymous users.

From his answers, we’ve learned that he’s identified as a boy since he was 6 or 7, his mom Andrea is VERY supportive, his big sister shows him love and support by calling him “handsome”.  But (as of 3-months ago), R. Kelly is unaware of his child’s new identity, according to In Touch Weekly. Also, he still has “female” organs and wears a chest binder, but plans to take testosterone and have gender reassignment surgery.

Jay on Andrea: “[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much. She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.’

Jay on his sister: “And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me.”

Jay on his transition: “I believe I am a boy and want surgery, and the medication to help me who I was supposed to be.”

Kudos to Jay Kelly on being brave.
