“R. Kelly wanted to fight Dave,” Brennan told The Breakfast Club. “Literally, his goons stepped to Dave in Chicago and Dave’s goons intervened. The goons negotiated.”

“Surviving R. Kelly” is a  six-hour special that detailed Kelly’s alleged physical and emotional abuse of women, including a recent “abusive cult” in which the singer is accused of holding women.

Kelly has repeatedly denied allegations of sexual misconduct.
