R. Kelly's Girlfriend Breaks Down in Tears as She Fiercely Defends Him

Posted March 10, 2019

The parents of the two women say their daughters have been brainwashed by 52-year-old Kelly.

"Well, both our parents, both our parents are basically out here trying to get money and scam, because they didn't agree on what happened, you know, with music or whatever it could be".

The full uncut interview with Kelly is scheduled to air on Friday night on CBS.

"We all are a family, all together", Clary said. She said it was her mother who had pushed her into performing and that the pressure had led to her attempt suicide. "How can I work, how can I get paid, how can I take care of my kids?"

Gayle King was never "scared" during her interview with R. Kelly and was more concerned he would walk out than he'd lash out at her.

She said listening to Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, Kelly's current live-in girlfriends was hard to watch too.

"We never "sold" our daughter to him or anyone else".

CBS This Morning showed the second instalment of its interview with the embattled singer, who faces sexual abuse charges and is in jail after saying he could not afford to pay $161,000 (€143,000) that he owes in child support. "I've been hearing things and seeing things on the blogs, you know, I'm just exhausted", he said in the middle of a breakdown. "I'm not, I'm your child".

"What kind of sick, demented man convinces countless young girls that their parents didn't want them or love them and "sold them" to him, all as part of an effort to sexually abuse and assault them?" he asked.

At one stage Clary broke down in tears, alleging her own father had encouraged her to lie about her age and to make sexual videos with Kelly in case they needed to blackmail him later, "which is exactly what they're doing". "So many people have been stealin' my money", Kelly said. Kelly denies the allegations.

'I'm fighting for my (expletive) life'. More of the interview is expected to air Thursday.

A lawyer representing the couple bristled at the allegation, saying Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage never asked for or received money from Kelly.

"Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me".

R. Kelly finally spoke out about his financial woes during his emotional interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning.

Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly also has previously accused the artist of domestic abuse. Clary and Savage are Kelly's girlfriends who live with him in Trump Tower. Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, has said his client did not "knowingly" have sex with underage girls.

King recalled, "So it became very troubling to me to see him, really, just fall apart".

R. Kelly's day began with a nationally televised broadcast in which he whispered, cried and ranted while pleading with viewers to believe him: He'd never had sex with anyone under 17 and never held anyone against her will.
