Journalist, Touré, is most known for his interview with R. Kelly, when he asked the singer did he like teenage girls. He also recently spoke out about R. Kelly again on the recent Lifetime documentary, “Surviving R. Kelly.” But it seems like he may know more about sexual assault then we know.
A make up artist by the name of Dani, has spoken out about Touré’s involvement in the recent documentary. This week, Touré, appeared on the Mouse Jones podcast to talk more about R. Kelly. Dani let everyone know about Touré sexually harassing her on the podcast’s now-deleted IG post.
She wrote: “But @toureshow used to sexually harass me? How that work?” She further went into detail about the harassment saying “every Monday I used to work with him on a show in 2017 and he couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f*ck me, what his cum would look like on my face….I had to have the crew stay in the room w me while I got him ready…and when I left I called HR…he got fired instantly. He wrote me a huge apology for doing that in my DMs. Still have it. He did a 20/20 shoot in 2018 and I was there and he walked out. Told the producer that he was “embarrassed bc he was inappropriate with a staff member” he really needs to take a seat.”
Dani then shared her dm convo with Touré with Essence. In the messages, Dani says “I’m surprised your speaking out! I’m sure I’m not the only girl you have verbally harassed! You’re lucky that I know how to say go f*ck yourself with a smile and I’m not going to say anything about how many times you asked me to have sex or asked how it would be to have w me. A few other people I know said the same thing about you. Be careful out there….!”
Touré then responded “I love you. I was always kidding! But I’m sorry. I was being stupid. I should’ve kept my mouth shut.”
Should someone accused of sexual assault be on documentaries giving insight about someone else sexually assaulting young girls?In the wake of the #MeToo movement, ain’t nobody safe. Men who thought they were getting away with murder, are being put on blast one by one.
