R. Kelly accuser Asante McGee had some words of encouragement for the women who are still involved with the disgraced singer.
"Love yourself first and if he really genuinely loves you, why is he keeping you away from your family?" Asante said during an interview with Too Fab.
"Your family loves you. They miss you," she continued. "They just want to make sure you're okay. So if he loves you the way that you say that he loves you, then you will be able to freely reunite with your family."
Asante was featured on the Lifetime docu-series, 'Surviving R. Kelly.' Assante lived with Kelly in his former Atlanta home. She was seen breaking down in the doc after entering the 'black room.'
"The longer you're there," Asante says of the young women living with Kelly, "the harder it is for you to back away. And so for him, and by me knowing him personally, I know he has a real good way of manipulating you and make you feel like the world is against you and they're jealous that you're there [with him] and they want to be where you are. So, you know, like I said, they're young and they just really think that he genuinely loves them."
