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

The parents of 23-year-old Savage said at a news conference on Wednesday they had not seen their daughter in person for two years.

The conversation between Kelly and Gayle King on "CBS This Morning" is his first TV interview since he was charged with sexual abuse last month.

"I would never share with no one what I do in or outside of the bedroom", Clary said. 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.

"His team had told us that R. Kelly would not be in the room", King said. "All of the victims and parents can not be lying", Alice and Angelo Clary added. She also expressed her disturbance with how Savage and Clary defended Kelly by parroting his denials of the allegations.

"When I first met Robert, my parents told me to lie about my age".

"A lot of the public already thinks he's guilty, and there is a very negative image of him, so the only thing he might think he can do is try to change their minds", Thiagarajah said.

Clary further alleged that her parents began to threaten her and R. Kelly that they would release naked photos of her if he doesn't send thousands of dollars to a bank account.

Bogut has been in Australia, his native country, playing for the Sydney Kings since 2018. Golden State had been seeking depth at center, and Robin Lopez was a primary target.

Breaking down into tears, Clary continued: "I'm crying, because you guys don't know the truth!" "You're trying to solicit me like I'm some f-king hoe". This is all fucking lies for money.

At one point Kelly jumped to his feet and shouted to the camera, pounding his breast. "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 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!" All because that's the world we live in.

"We all are a family, all together", Clary said. "And what they're doing right now is all for money".

Kelly now faces 10 felony counts for sexual crimes that took place between 1998 and 2010 and involved four victims, three of whom were under 17, according to charging documents.

Friday's special also will include a team of CBS News journalists who will explore the allegations of abuse against Kelly, his denials and more.

Kelly denied the claims. The CBS This Morning interview topped YouTube's trends and went viral. In a statement, the Clarys called him a "desperate liar and serial abuser of young girls".

Kelly now faces ten counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse; he was released on bail, but was re-arrested, this time for failing to pay the $161,000 he allegedly owes in child support.
