R. Kelly son Jay is transgender. R&B star R. Kelly’s youngest child from his marriage with reality TV star Andrea Kelly has announced that he’s a transgender.

Jay Kelly who was previously known as Jaya Kelly is 13 (will turn 14 on June 28) has decided to publicly embrace his identity.

The young teenager stated that he started his journey when he was 6 years old.

The singer and his ex-wife divorced in 2009 after being married for 13 years. They have two other children together.

Jay Kelly who has been praised by LGBT organizations for his courage to tackle this long process is quite present on social media answering questions about his situation.

That’s how the media found out that his mother Hollywood Exes Drea is very accepting so is his older sister Joann Kelly. Andrea Kelly recently filed for divorce from her second husband Brian McKee, the pair was married for only two months.

McKee apparently kept in touch with some of his exes and the whole drama unfolded on social media culminating with a Twitter meltdown from the dancer last month.

R. Kelly reportedly has a difficult relationship with Jay and Joann but is pretty close to Robert Kelly Jr. who would not mind following in his legendary father footsteps with a singing career.

The “Ignition” singer has not reached out to his son after the news broke but sources in his camp insist that he will be supportive.

Jay Kelly has said that he will have to wait when he turns 18 to start the medical process that will help match what he feels inside with what people see on the outside.

While putting his story story out in the public eye is a worthy idea Jay may want to be careful not to turn his life into a circus at such a young age with people trying to use him for their own personal gain.
