Gospel Music Icon, Kirk Franklin has taken to social media to express his sincere apologies for in-appropriate words used in a leaked heated phone conversation with his estranged son Kerrion Franklin.
“Many of you know I have an older son named Kerrion Franklin. In May, he’ll be 33. For many years, we’ve had a toxic relationship with him as a family,” he said. “We tried for many years through counseling, through therapy, to try and rectify this private family matter.”
“Recently, my son and I had an argument that he chose to record. I felt extremely disrespected in that conversation and I lost my temper. I said words that were not appropriate and I am sincerely sorry to all of you. I sincerely apologize,” Franklin continued.
“I want you to know as a father that during that conversation, I called the family therapist and got that therapist on the phone to try and help. He never played that part of the recording. I’m not perfect. I’m human and I’m going to make mistakes and I’m trying to get it right. Please keep me and my family in your prayers” concludes Kirk in a video posted via his social media platforms.
Several household names in the Gospel music industry have shared messages of support, love, and prayers in a bid to encourage the platinum-selling artist in his trying times.
