R. Kelly’s girlfriends defend him and blame their parents in CBS interview


"And I can't do it", Kelly added. Quit playing! I didn't do this stuff!

Furthermore, the alleged victim said she visited Kelly at his Atlanta home "for a period of four years", during which time Kelly gave her herpes, when she as 17 years old.

"What kind of father, what kind of mother would sell their daughter to a man?"

King's poised composure promoted viewers, including pal Oprah Winfrey and producer Ava DuVernay, to applaud her ability to not even flinch - especially when Kelly appeared to be towering over her - and also be concerned for the journalist's welfare.

In the docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly", Clary's parents said she pushed them to allow her to work with Kelly in the music industry.

"How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through - oh right now I just think I need to be a monster, and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, and don't let them out".

"Everything that she's saying is true", Savage said.

Tiger Woods set golf's alarm bells ringing on Monday night by pulling out of this week's PGA Tour event with a neck injury. Mitchell finished nine under - one shot ahead of Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler - at PGA National in Florida.

Kelly suggested during his interview that the woman's parents were in it for the money and blamed them for his relationship with their daughter, saying they brought her to watch him perform when she was a teenager. "And they're just very upset".

After Wednesday's hearing, the publicist said that the singer "feels good" about the TV interview. "Our parents are basically out here just to get money", Savage claimed. Someone said I hog-tied her, I don't know how to hoe-tie people! "You're killing me with this shit". "There was only two things on that list that Robert hadn't done to me". When you beat something, you can't double-jeopardy me like that. A Cook County Sheriff's Office official says the singer won't be released until he pays $161,000 United States in back child support he owes. "This is all f-ing lies for money. This is all f***king lies for money, and if you can't see that, you're ignorant and you're stupid".

In the statement, Griggs also mentioned that Kelly was also in the room during Clary and Savage's interview with Gayle King. Kelly said people don't want to believe the truth, and the allegations against him are preventing him from having a relationship with his kids (Joann, otherwise known as Buku Abi, 20, Jay, 18, and Robert Jr, 16).

As King noted that she was speaking to the women under a "very different circumstance", Clary strongly disagreed.

To the contrary, Clary told King, she attempted suicide because of pressure to become a performer. She also said her parents had threatened to leak naked photos of her unless Kelly sent them tens of thousands of dollars.

In part one of the interview, which aired Wednesday, King hammered Kelly on allegations of sexual abuse, raping underage girls, and other misconduct.

During the interview, both Clary and Savage insisted they were in love with Kelly, that he had done nothing wrong, and that their families had concocted the charges in order to extort money from him.
