Beyoncè’s mother, Tina Lawson, decided to comment on the R. Kelly controversy and her social media followers were quick to drag her because her son-in-law hardly has a scandal free reputation.

As reported by Celebrity Insider, Tina was quickly reminded that there is more than a ten-year gap Jay-Z and her daughter. Not to mention is shady past relationship with a teenaged Foxy Brown.

Jada Pinkett Smith recently did an interview with one of R. Kelly’s accusers on an episode of “Red Table Talk.” The actress dished with Lisa Van Allen about Lifetime’s docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly. Lisa says she was 17 when she and the R&B singer had a romantic relationship.

“I came out in 2008 and nobody heard me. In 2008, there weren’t any movements, nobody else was talking about it. I came out hoping that I could help the victims and the girl on the tape because I knew her family wasn’t going to speak. So I felt like, somebody has to stand up. They threatened my life. There was a lot I was dealing with. I was pregnant. You can’t let that stuff stop you. You can’t be afraid.
