Dr. Dre commented on R Kelly’s recent Sex Scandal. Here is what he told MTV:
I’ve been hearing a lot of talk on the radio in L.A. from stations that are saying they’re not going to play his records ever again because they saw the video and he’s a sick bastard,” Dr. Dre said Wednesday. “But I don’t know if it’s true. I only know what I’ve heard. I haven’t seen the video, nor do I want to see it because there’s a kid involved. That’s where I draw the line. You can do almost anything except touch kids or something like that. That’s a no-no, you know what I’m saying? If he’s guilty, he’s over. I’m just waiting for the results.
If the truth comes back and he’s not guilty, he can definitely recover. I think people will open their arms out to him again, because then it becomes just him on tape having sex, that’s it. We’ve all seen other stars and what have you do that before. Look at Tommy Lee and Pamela Lee. They were glamorized for it. Dre said last week.
Dre recently produced a track for his latest protégé, R&B singer Truth Hurts, that features Kelly. The song was a strong candidate to be her first single, but it was put aside at least partially because of Kelly’s situation, according to Truth Hurts.
