CHICAGO (CBS)–R. Kelly has broken his social media silence for the first time in nearly three months.

The embattled R&B singer posted a birthday message to his estranged daughter on Twitter overnight.

His daughter Joann–who goes by the name Buku Abi–posted an Instagram back in January calling her father a monster, and said she was devastated by the sexual abuse allegations.
