Upon her return to television following a very public health scare, Wendy Williams shared with fans that she had a meeting with the Pied Piper himself, R. Kelly, who answered every controversial and awkward question she asked him.
Although she went on to say she couldn’t reveal the details of said meeting, Williams was reduced to tears during yesterday’s episode of her hit talk show when claiming the Grammy-winning songwriter actually can’t write, read or do simple math.
A post shared by R Kelly (@rkelly) on

Williams then began to tear up, telling her audience, “It’s just a deeply moving story for me, because I know all of the story…”
