French Montana says that R. Kelly told us who he was a long time ago — and despite his heinous sexual abuse allegations he deserves to enjoy the legacy he created.

via TMZ:

We got French Saturday night leaving the L.A. Coliseum after the Rams game, and he invoked Michael Jackson‘s name, saying, “All the greats went down like that,” adding, “Let somebody enjoy their legacy. Whatever happened, happened, man.”

French said R. Kelly’s M.O. was clear when he sang, “My mind’s tellin’ me no, but my body, my body’s tellin’ me yes” in his song, “Bump and Grind.”
