Cape Town - The queen of hot topics shocked her viewers by saying the R&B singer shouldn’t be arrested for allegedly abusing underage women over the years, even though she thinks he is guilty, reports BET.
Celebrity Insider reports Wendy became emotional while she shared her thoughts on the interview, saying the singer needed help and referring to him as a sick man.
“At this point R. Kelly has got nothing to lose. He is a sick man. You know I have been around for a really long time . . . the radio days. I went from finding him hella guilty to just guilty and then feeling very sorry for him and wanting for him to get help.”
She didn’t think prison was the place for him, the talk-show host said. “His help is not behind bars. I don’t know where his help is.”
And she didn’t believe R. Kelly was alone in his guilt. “This not just Robert Kelly, this is a whole stable of people that he had involved. It is not just R. Kelly, it is going around our country. This is terrible.”
