The stepdaughter of R Kelly's former publicist, Regina Daniels, has spoken out about her brief love affair with the R&B superstar, insisting the singer is attempting to defame her family by accusing his former employee of incompetence.
Kelly recently denied claims by Daniels' husband, music industry veteran George Daniels, that his wife quit her post last year because of a sexual relationship he had with the 21-year-old, insisting the pair actually parted company because she was no longer an efficient worker.
But Maxine Daniels claims the star is lying because her stepmom resigned when she learned about their "secret" affair.
She says: "My stepmother and father didn't know about my relationship with the singer because I knew and he knew that they wouldn't approve... so I tried to keep it a secret.
"When my stepmother found out about our relationship, she resigned because she felt that Rob had 'crossed the line' by dating a girl that he has known since she was seven-years-old.
"My stepmom was not fired for incompetence. She was Rob's publicist for 14 years and always considered Rob family. And Rob thought of my dad like a father." - Wenn
