"Surviving R. Kelly" Contributor and Veteran Hip-Hop Journalist Touré Accused of Sexual Harassment

One of the commentators included in the R. Kelly documentary was journalist Touré Neblett. He is quite familiar with the allegations Kelly has faced throughout his career and in 2008, interviewed R. Kelly for BET, and as seen in the documentary.

Touré then appeared in a podcast to discuss the documentary and the aftermath of the series. In the comments of a promotional clip of the podcast, a make-up artist who goes by Dani, accused the journalist of sexually harassing her on a show they used to work on together. She posted screenshots (at the source) of him apologizing to her in 2017 and told Essence

“He went on Hot97 to talk about Harvey Weinstein (after he apologized). I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators,” she said.

Essence reached out to his employer Time Inc., which issued a statement saying they do not discuss personnel matters, but stated Touré is no longer employed at the company.

Terry Crews was set to appear on his podcast hours before the Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiere on NBC but cancelled after the allegations surfaced.
