Singer R. Kelly has been involved in several legal investigations lately as he is believed to have sexually abused minors, having a sex cult, and keeping young women in his house against their will.


However, two of the man’s girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, were in an interview with Gayle King for “CBS This Morning” in which they emotionally denied the allegations against the singer.

In the short clip shown during the show, Azriel appeared crying in front of the cameras while Jocelyn tried to comfort her. Gayle asked Azriel to explain why she was crying, and the 21-year-old lady yelled at the TV host saying that people didn't know the truth.



She added that it was all a façade that the parents of the alleged victims created to get money from Kelly and “if you can't see that then you're ignorant and you're stupid!”

Both Azriel and Joycelyn, 23, met the 52-year-old singer as teenagers at concerts. Soon later, they moved in with Kelly and have been living with him for several years without having contact with their families.


In Azriel’s case, she was 17 when she met Kelly. The lady emphasized that the couple was in a consensual relationship moments before screaming at Gayle. Joycelyn, on the other hand, made headlines in the past as she spoke out to dismiss her parents’ allegations claiming that Kelly kept her in a sex cult.

Unfortunately, “CBS This Morning” showed only a short part of the full interview, which will air on March 8. It was not the only video Gayle shared during the show, though.



The 64-year-old journalist talked to Kelly in the first-ever formal interview the singer had after his sexual abuse charges. Apart from categorically denying the allegations, the man went off, cried, and yelled at Gayle, too.

During the conversation, Kelly said that the women’s parents “sold” them to him when they were teenagers and that they were accusing him of sexual misconduct just because they wanted to get money from him.


He set clear that neither Azriel nor any other woman was sexually involved with him when they were underage. Kelly emphasized that he didn’t pay attention to the age gap he and his girlfriends have as he only cares about them being “legal.”

The singer also focused on the power of social media, claiming that anybody could make up a story, write a book, or get a reality show and then “any girl that I had a relationship with in the past that it just didn't work out, she can come and say the same exact thing."


“How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy 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, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!” Kelly said, listing some of the things he is accused of.


Soon after the interview aired on the show, Joycelyn’s parents held a press conference pointing out that Kelly, Azriel, and Joycelyn’s remarks were disturbing, adding that they were praying for the singer to find “some kind of healing” and that they were afraid for the safety of their daughter because they didn’t know what Kelly does to young ladies in private.


The alleged victim’s sister also shared her thoughts and, as her family says, she believes Joycelyn is being forced to defend him in public, adding that she knew “for a fact” that her sister was not okay.

Kelly, 52, turned himself in after Cook County prosecutors charged him on February 22 with a total of 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse towards four women. Three of those women were minors at the time the alleged abuse took place between 1998 and 2010.



Even though his past was somehow forgotten, his sexual behavior came into question once again due to the #MeToo movement and the Lifetime’s docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly,” a six-part show featuring several women who recount the alleged physical and sexual abuse they suffered at his hands.

The singer has said several times that he is not guilty and he is expected to appear in court on March 22.
