R. KELLY’S EX SPILLS TEA ABOUT UNDERAGE THREESOMES ON ‘RED TABLE TALK’


*Jada Pinkett Smith broke down on the latest episode of “Red Table Talk” during which she dished with R. Kelly’s ex, Lisa Van Allen, who elaborates on previous claims she had threesomes with the singer when she was 17.

Allen was among the women who shared their experience with Kelly on Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly,” and she testified against him in his 2008 child pornography trial.

“People don’t understand. I was 17. When I started noticing that he was a liar and manipulator was when I started putting things together that didn’t add up,” she says of her experience. “Like when I found out the girl was younger. Like, ‘Why would he do that?’ Things like that are when I started really, really questioning him.”

“I have a thing that I say to young girls now, or girls in general: love yourself first,” Allen says. “Because that was the problem, because I was putting his feelings before mine. I didn’t care that it bothered me. I didn’t care that I cried and I was upset, and that I needed to share somebody I loved with other women. I wanted him to be happy.”

Her tale prompted a teary-eyed Jada to say “I’m sorry you didn’t get it sooner.”

Allen claims Kelly taped the threesomes and her alleged sex partner was only 14 — although, the songwriter lied and said she was 16.

“I knew that he was having sex with her but he would put up this front for her parents,” she said. “He knows that he’s sleeping with this young girl. Him and I both were actually having sex with her. But I didn’t know at the time that she was actually 14.”

In another “Red Table Talk” preview available online, Allen addressed those wondering why she didn’t report Kelly’s sexual relationship with a child at the time.

“People say,’Once they found out she was 14 why didn’t you turn him in?’ Because I loved him. I wanted to help him get better first because that’s how we work as far as love goes.”

She added, “I’m not going to call the cops on someone I love. “I’m going to try to figure out how to help you and what I can do to save you.”

“Once I realized he couldn’t be saved — he didn’t want to be saved — he would tell me things like: ‘My mama told me if you love a man, you don’t try to change him.’ The older I got it was like, ‘Boy, that’s some bull.'”
