R Kelly's "girlfriends" Jocelyn Savage and Azriel Clary have spoken out for the first time after the R&B star was arrested on alleged sexual abuse charges. "That's stupid, guys. Is this camera on me?" She added, "I'm happy where I'm at and everything is OK with me".
"I'm very exhausted of all of the lies", Kelly said.
"Forget how you feel about me".
Clary's parents in a statement on Wednesday denied ever getting money from Kelly. "Didn't know what the hell was going on", said Kelly.
Kelly has been repeatedly accused of sexual misconduct before. The charges include three purported victims who were allegedly minors at the time. She just did her best to let Kelly say what he had to. He said he's speaking out not to save his career, but to proclaim his innocence in his legal case - and in hopes of having a relationship with his children again.
CBS also plans to air interviews with two women who are living with Kelly, including one whose parents say she is being held against her will. The woman says she visited Kelly at his home over the next four years, eventually contracting herpes from him when she was 17.
'At no point did this family sell their daughter to anyone or provide their daughter for anything for money, ' attorney Gerald Griggs said Wednesday during a news conference. "How come it was OK for them to see me until they weren't getting no money from me?"
Clary and Savage claim their parents are trying to blackmail him for financial gain, something both sets of parents have denied. I love her to death.
"This is what they're saying about you".
In the interview, Clary said she first met Kelly at one of his concerts in 2015.
Watch the interviews below. She has alleged she had a sexual relationship with the singer when she was 16. In his heart, mind, body and soul he believes he's done no wrong. After, Oprah [Winfrey] and my kids Kirby and Will called me to ask if I was okay because it looked scary.
In a statement to CNN in August 2017, Kelly publicist Trevian Kutti denied Pace's allegations. No matter how absurd Kelly's words became, his interviewer stifled the spit take with which any lesser person would react.
The sex acts are alleged to have occurred between May 1998 and January 2010, according to prosecutors.
King also asked Kelly about him being molested as a child and whether he thinks he needs therapy (he is considering it).
