R. Kelly's Crisis Manager, Darrell Johnson has sensationally quit just hours after his controversial CBS interview in which he stated that he would not trust Kelly with his daughter.

Following his interview, he spoke to USA Today where he admitted that he had made a crucial error:

"I should have worded it better," Johnson told USA TODAY, adding that he meant to say, "I would leave my daughter with Kelly because I do not believe he is a pedophile."

And regarding his resignation: "This has nothing to do with Mr. Kelly it's for my (own) person(al) reasons," he said in a statement to USA TODAY.

Kelly's attorney Greenberg also released a statement to CNN thanking Johnson "for his tireless assistance." He also said that he looks forward to Johnson's return.

"He shares our confidence that this is an unprecedented assault against R. Kelly by others, for their own personal gain, and in the innocence of R. Kelly," Greenberg's statement read.
