R. Kelly accuses parents of 'selling' daughters to him

A tearful R Kelly defends himself in a recent interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King

Savage's family held a press conference on Tuesday, the same day that an interview with Kelly aired on CBS This Morning. "Kelly" brought renewed attention to the sexual misconduct claims that have followed the singer for years. Kelly repeatedly denies those charges, telling King in an exchange shown on air Wednesday morning, "I don't even really know what a cult is", the singer said.

"Oooh, that's a good question", she said. "They was describing Lucifer". "You killing me, man. I make mistakes, but I'm not a devil, and by no means am I a monster". King notes that he was acquitted (the girl allegedly in the tape refused to testify), prompting Kelly to reply: "You can't double jeopardy me like that. I gave y'all 30 years of my fucking career!" But just use your common sense. "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, hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!"

He also tweeted, "Key things we learned from the R. Kelly interview: 1".

He denied physically or emotionally abusing women saying the whole scandal has cost him his relationship with his children. Journalists complimented King on her "masterclass" in keeping her cool as Kelly lost his. "Quit playing, I didn't do this stuff, this is not me, I'm fighting for my fucking life". This is not me!.

The 52-year-old singer is accused in Chicago of sexually abusing four females dating back to 1998, including three underage girls.




Interviews with Clary and Savage will air on Thursday morning. No matter how absurd Kelly's words became, his interviewer stifled the spit take with which any lesser person would react.

"Not true", Kelly said when King asked him about "the other cases where women have come forward and said, 'R". "We have a relationship. I just look at "legal". He explained, "What kind of father, what kind of mother, will sell their daughter to a man?" Despite her parents' allegations that R. Kelly has brainwashed her, the aspiring singer told TMZ in July 2017, "I'm 21..." We never asked R. Kelly for money. Savage disputed claims that she was being held against her will in an interview with TMZ in 2017.

Some pointed out that King was sitting in for women and girls who didn't have the power to confront Kelly. She remained seated throughout the ordeal, allowing Kelly to vent while still maintaining control of the situation.

In the fallout, Kelly and his label, Sony subsidiary RCA Records, parted ways.

When King notes his alleged sordid history (in 2008, Kelly was put on trial for child pornography for an infamous videotape that supposedly showed him urinating on an underage girl), saying, "But the past is relevant with you with underage girls", Kelly snaps.
