Listen to R. Kelly on iHeartRadio | Listen to Chris Brown on iHeartRadio

R. Kelly is likening Chris Brown to Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr., and Muhammad.  Kelly made the comparison during an interview with the British newspaper "The Guardian" after pointing out that Chris is someone who has remained resilient despite being "knocked down." 

The R&B star was quick to clarify that he was "not saying that Chris Brown is Jesus."  However, he added that Jesus is "the number one inspirer of someone being knocked down and rising again."  

Kelly also said he doesn't "feel sorry" for Chris Brown.  Instead, he feels sorry for the "haters" because he's often found them to be "weak people."
