Questlove and his band The Roots are in hot water after singer Jaguar Wright claims they were in the studio when R. Kelly seduced young girls a backroom.

In a livestream video, Wright, 43, claimed Questlove, real name Ahmir Thompson, was in a Philadelphia studio when the disgraced R&B singer seduced young girls in a back room.

In a video captioned, "Threatening me? I'm ready," Wright expressed regret for not speaking out about Kelly's alleged inappropriate behavior with young girls.

"Do you know how responsible I feel for all the women that I let get hurt because I didn't say nothing," she said.

"Look at R. Kelly... The Roots was around when that ni--a was in the A room, sending his mf driver off to go get girls..."

Wright went on to say "a member of The Roots" specifically told her to mind her own business if she wanted to keep her career.

The studio is about 5 miles from Simon Gratz High School, one of the schools mentioned by Wright in her video.

Kelly, 53, is currently in a Chicago detention facility awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Questlove, the 49-year-old famed drummer for The Roots who served as in-house band for The Tonight Show, was among the celebrities who opted out of Lifetime's documentary series, Surviving R. Kelly, last year.

At the time, Questlove claimed he was being asked to acknowledge Kelly's "genius" as the reason for his refusal to appear in the documentary produced by journalist dream hampton.

Marc Lamont Hill's ex dream hampton is set to direct a series about the Tulsa Race Massacre, an act of racial violence that occurred nearly 100 years ago.

The 49-year-old writer/filmmaker who stylizes her name in all lower caps, says the time is right for such a compelling series about race relations in America.

"Black people from Tulsa have refused to let the Greenwood District Massacre be erased from history. I'm so inspired by their persistence to lift up the stories of what North Tulsa was before the massacre," hampton said in a statement on Monday about the burning of Tulsa's Greenwood District, dubbed "Black Wall Street" for its collection of successful African American-owned businesses.

Over 300 Americans were killed and thousands more were displaced from their homes as the Greenwood District was torched by white supremacists.

"As the centennial approaches they are still searching for a mass grave they believe contains the bodies of the victims of the Black Wall Street Massacre, and they are still demanding reparations. I'm inspired to learn this history from them, and to tell their ongoing story," said hampton.

The award-winning filmmaker was once entangled in a love triangle with another woman for Marc Lamont Hill's affections.

Their squabble over a cheating man got so heated that the other woman emailed your auntie to put hampton on blast.

When your auntie did the responsible thing and reached out to hampton for her side of the story, she pleaded with me not to publish the woman's email because her minor daughter (at the time) was old enough to read the blogs.
