Drake’s dad says he supports ‘friends’ R. Kelly, Jussie Smollett

Dennis Graham, father of the rapper Drake, has spoken out in support of both R. Kelly and Jussie Smollett — who are supposedly “good friends” of his.

Graham, a musician himself, was asked to give his thoughts on the pair’s legal troubles during an interview with Variety this week, which focused on an upcoming song that he plans to release called “That On That.”

When questioned about Kelly and the sexual abuse charges that the singer is facing — involving four victims, three of whom were allegedly minors — Graham said: “He’s a good friend of mine. I wish him the best. I hate that it’s happening to him. There’s a reason why women come out after the fact. He has my support 100%.”

Asked about Smollett, who is facing disorderly conduct charges for allegedly filing a false police report about a hate crime that he claims to have suffered in Chicago, Graham said: “Jussie has been misunderstood…they know that.”

Graham added, “That story that came out about Jussie in Chicago is not true about Jussie. Jussie is a friend of mine, also. They have totally reconstructed his story.”

Smollett and Kelly are both currently free on bond. They have each denied the allegations against them and entered not guilty pleas.
