R. Kelly's estranged daughter has broken her silence with a powerful statement condemning the singer ... and strongly implies she and her family have also been abused by him.
Joann Lee Kelly - aka Buku Abi - shared a long, thoughtful message on Instagram
And her mother and siblings do not condone any of the negative behavior - past or present.
I have never felt any relationship with Kelly for years, saying ... "I would never want anyone to feel the pain. "
Buku adds ... "I grew up in that house."
Kelly 's daughter says she' s better for her healing process, and the constant reminders of "how terrible my father is".
We spoke with Buku back in April about allegations against her dad - and she did not say much - her attitude has clearly changed.
Kelly's surrounded by controversy and allegations of sexual abuse and predatory behavior in the wake of Lifetime's docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly."
But, according to his daughter ... it goes even deeper than that.
