“Many of these stories I was hearing when I, myself, was wayyyy underage. Making my first album at 12 and then 14/15. I was a HUGEEEEE R Kelly fan, came from a broken home, had daddy issues, and wondered…how did these girls get chosen? I wondered if I could/would be,” she said.

Fortunately, JoJo’s mom never let her “get too close to predatory men who wanted to do god-knows-what to me,” adding that “If I didn’t have her, I could have easily fallen victim to someone like R. Kelly. Period.”
