He also pointed the finger at Gloria Allred. The high-powered attorney represented half of R. Kelly's victims in the trial. She also repped several Cosby accusers.

Allred tells Radar, "Anyone who has been convicted of a crime should take responsibility for it, rather than blaming others." She says, "R. Kelly was convicted by a jury and their decision should be respected."
