R. Kelly’s youngest child has recently come out as transgender, and we could not be happier for him!



In Touch Weekly is reporting that thirteen-year-old Jay came out publicly on Instagram recently. He said his father was unaware as of three months ago, but his mother — “Hollywood Exes” star Drea — has been extremely supportive of her son.

“[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much,’” he posted on his Ask.fm page, which is a social media site that allows users to answer anonymously submitted questions. “She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.”

“And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me.”

Jay also explained that while he still has female organs, he hopes with the help of surgery and testosterone he can finally be comfortable as himself.

We’re so happy for Jay to be surrounded by such positive and supportive people.What do you think about Jay’s decision to transition? Are you happy to see the support he is receiving? Let us know in the comments below!
