Kelly’s Young Girlfriends Defend Him, Blast Their Own Parents

The reaction to accused sexual abuser R. Kelly's wild interview with CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King continues, this time with a new theory about why Kelly coughed loudly throughout an interview of his girlfriends Joycelyn Savage, 23, and Azriel Clary, 21.

The network also plans to air interviews with two women who are now living with Mr Kelly, including one whose parents said she was being held against her will. The singer was taken into police custody on Wednesday just hours after the first part of the special aired, due to his failure to pay around $165,000 in child support; he remains in jail. You can't double jeopardy me like that.

In a statement to CNN in August 2017, Kelly publicist Trevian Kutti denied Pace's allegations.

Kelly's team told King that the singer would not be in the room for the interview, but he was reportedly present. "We have a relationship - it's real".

Kelly told King during their interview that his ex was not telling the truth when she alleged abuse in the docuseries.

But the dangers of such an interview might outweigh any benefits if Kelly locked himself into a particular defence, Thiagarajah said, adding: "He may not know all the evidence against him".

The lack of cash forced Kelly to spend a weekend in a Chicago jail, until a 47-year-old suburban business owner put up the money.

The name of the day derives from the placement of repentance ashes smudged on the forehead of religious followers. A robed minister will be standing outside and offering ashes to drivers at the church on 12 Mile Road.

"The song is called "Do What U Want (With My Body)", I think it's clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time."I'm sorry, both for my poor judgment when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner", the singer said back in January". "All of the victims and parents can not be lying", they said.

Following Kelly's interview with King on CBS on Wednesday, the Savage family held a press conference in which they strongly denied ever asking for money from the singer.

She said listening to Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, Kelly's current live-in girlfriends was hard to watch too. I'm going to ruin you, I'm going to ruin him. "How can I work?" She just did her best to let Kelly say what he had to.

Kelly became distraught when he talked about his children and said he's in love with them. "How come it was ok for me to see them until they weren't getting no money from it?" While R. Kelly denied allegations of ever having sexual relationships with underage girls or abusing women, holding them captive and declaring that he wasn't a monster, people were surprised when he stood up and cried. He claims that the only thing that he's guilty of is "having a big heart" and King says that she believes he's honest, although he has acknowledged that he's made mistakes.

One of the women suggested that her parents told her to lie about her age when she met Kelly - and say that she was 18 when she was a year younger. R. Kelly is mentally destroying her.

Earlier in the day, "CBS This Morning" aired an interview in which Kelly pleaded with viewers to believe that he'd never had sex with anyone under 17 and never held anyone against her will.
