Jada Pinkett Smith is using her platform to talk about R. Kelly and the aftermath of the Lifetime docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly.”
In an exclusive clip from a special two-part “Red Table Talk” airing Friday and Monday, Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow Smith and mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones were joined by Lisa Van Allen, who appeared in the docu-series and says she was a victim of Kelly’s abusive behavior.
“When he first told me he had never had a threesome, and I felt like I needed to do that for him because we were together and I was living with him,” Van Allen said in the clip. “I did it, and then he wanted another one and another one, and that’s when it was like ‘Uh oh.’ “
Van Allen described her relationship with Kelly to Pinkett Smith.
Van Allen said in “Surviving R. Kelly” the singer coerced her into having sex with him and a 14-year-old girl, lying to Van Allen and telling her that the other girl was 16, not 14, she said. She said that she found a sex tape that allegedly featured her with Kelly and the 14-year-old
Van Allen also claimed in the docu-series she stole the infamous tape.
“People need to remember that Lisa you were a child on that tape and I think that people got that twisted, the idea that those were two minors,” said Pinkett Smith, who had joined other celebrities in speaking out on social media about the docu-series.
“Exactly,” Van Allen replied. “People don’t understand, I was 17. When I started noticing that he was a liar and a manipulator was when I started putting things together that didn’t add up, like when I found out the girl was younger. And I’m like ‘why would he do that?’ Things like that are when I started really really questioning him.”
