Dave Chappelle claims that he was threatened by R. Kelly’s “goons” after making fun of the I Believe singer with the infamous ‘Piss on You‘ sketch.

The comedian recorded the 2003 skit for The Chappelle Show after Kelly was arrested in 2002 over the sex tape that allegedly saw him urinate on an underage girl.

The video in question led to a trial but Kelly and the girl denied it was them in the video.

Kelly was not charged with assault but he was charged with child pornography. Following a month-long trial in 2008, the singer was acquitted of all 14 charges.

The comedian spoke about it during a stand-up set in Hollywood earlier this week and he claimed that the skit resulted in him receiving direct threats.

“When that sketch came out, we was in Chicago at a Common show and his goons bust in my room — I don’t know if they was his goons, but they sure did like him,” the Half Baked actor said.

Chappelle went on to explain that he never actually met Kelly, but he joked that he’d been directly confronted by the singer.

“He said, ‘How you gon’ do a video of me peeing on b**ches like that?’ And I said, ‘How you gonna make a video of you pissing on b**ches like that?’ My mind’s telling me no. But you know what? My body’s telling me yes.”
