Dennis Graham is gearing up to drop his new single, "That on That." As he hits the promo trail, Drake's proud papa made some time to sit down with VarietyDuring the interview, Graham spoke out in support of R. Kelly.

"He’s a good friend of mine. I wish him the best," Graham said when asked about the allegations that the embattled singer is currently facing. "I hate that it’s happening to him. There’s a reason why women come out after the fact. He has my support 100 percent."

He also addressed the allegations currently surrounding Jussie Smollett—and he thinks people have that one wrong as well.

"Jussie has been misunderstood. As a matter of fact, they know that," he said. "That story that came out about Jussie in Chicago is not true about Jussie. Jussie is a friend of mine, also. They have totally reconstructed his story."

You can say what you want about his opinions, but you can't say he doesn't stand by his friends.

Later in the interview, Graham addressed Tiffany Haddish's recent statements that he'd unsuccessfully tried to date her, and it's clear there is no bad blood. However, it seems that he's not exactly cosigning her account of events.

"Tiffany is amazing and crazy. She’s a funny person. I saw her in New York not too long ago," Graham told Variety. "We kicked it in a minute and that was it. We were talking about music, she said she was going to start doing music and I said we should do something together."
