As the scrutiny around abuse claims involving R Kelly intensifies, Post Malone has addressed the situation with a blunt statement.

The 'Surviving R Kelly' documentary has seen R Kelly hit with a number of allegations of abuse, whilst a number of stars have hit out against him, including John Legend who labelled R Kelly a 'serial child rapist'.

After French Montana was forced to try and clear up comments he made which appeared to support R Kelly, fellow rapper Post Malone has now been drawn on the subject and offered an honest assessment.

In a brief chat with TMZ, Post was asked about his thoughts on the situation stating 'He's done a lot of f***ed up s**t obviously," before addressing the fact that his former collaborators are pulling their songs from streaming services.

Lady Gaga, Chance The Rapper and others have all chosen to take their songs with R Kelly down from popular music streaming services as R Kelly's songs have enjoyed a rise in listeners following the documentary.

On that issue, Post added, "You know what, I think essentially it's the right thing to do, but it's not really my place," before being asked whether people should be rewriting history and adding, "I also understand he's done a lot of big f***ed up s**t".
