John Legend thinks R. Kelly's arrest has been a "long time coming".
The 'All of Me' hitmaker has spoken out in support of the singer's alleged victims after R. Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse by Cook County's State Attorney last week.
He said: "I think it's been a long time coming. I think a lot of us kind of tolerated or looked the other way on that issue for a long time, and a lot of people were being hurt for decades. We looked away for too long ... These stories have been around for decades. I think let justice play out. Obviously its difficult to prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt in court, so we'll see what happens, but I think his victims deserve justice."
John spoke out during the Lifetime documentary series 'Surviving R. Kelly'.
Speaking to The Today Show, he added: "I'm so glad that victims got to have their voices heard. But I think them having their voices heard, this story being retold - because this has been told before - I think being retold through [the documentary] really brought the issue to a lot of people's attention."
