Vibe reports that Cannon, who collaborated with Kelly for his "Gigolo" single back in 2003, sat down with E!'s Daily Pop morning show earlier this week and spoke candidly about recent claims that Kelly is running a sex cult in his Atlanta and Chicago homes. Kelly allegedly houses a group of 6 women, recording their sexual encounters and controlling everything from how they dress to when they bathe and sleep.
"I don't know what that man does at night," Cannon said. "I've been in the studio with that man. That man is a genius. I've been on stage with him, I ain't been in his bedroom. I don't know if it's a cult, fire, brimstone."
"I don't know, and I really don't care. That's none of my business," he added.
Cannon reiterated that he's more interested in his own life than Kelly's, saying, "What that man does in his life, that's his life. I got my own issues. I'm trying to clean out my own closet."
Kelly has denied the accusations levied against him. His attorney Linda Mensch told Pitchfork in a statement last month, "Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name."
