Respect for “The King of R&B” is at an all-time high according to Tyrese who said he received a warm note of condolences from the jailed icon after the recent death of his mother.

In the message, R. Kelly shared heartfelt words to Tyrese saying, “Hey lil bro my condolences to you about your mom.”
R. Kelly went on to encourage Tyrese, whose mom Priscilla Murray passed away from COVID-19 less than a month ago, saying “She’s in a better place with my mom and they both smiling down on us. I know it’s a lot having to deal with this in the limelight but keep your head up -rob.”
