Kelly Denies Sexual Abuse Allegations in Explosive Interview

Thursday, 07 Mar, 2019

He kept bringing up that these are old allegations that "I beat" by the way - which I thought was an interesting choice of words, that "I beat" - and people keep going back to old allegations.

"I know for a fact my sister is not OK".

But a family in Georgia says they haven't been in contact with their daughter in two years. "So they're lying on you?"

Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said she did not know why Kelly was taken into custody, including whether it had to do with unpaid child support. "I have been buried alive, but I'm alive". Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. "Thirty years of my career! Y'all trying to kill me!" he said. I'm not Lucifer, I'm a man. This is not about music! I'm trying to have a relationship with my kids. And I can't do it! You guys believe in some f-- façade that our parents are saying.

Kelly sat down for a full hour and 20 minutes, but the full interview will be released on Wednesday.

Nearly two weeks after he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, singer R. Kelly is breaking his silence about his case. He plead not guilty, and his next court appearance is slated for March 22.

R. Kelly's expletive-filled outburst seen during his explosive interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King has since gone massively viral. King asked. After a few seconds of defending himself, Kelly completely lost it.

Avenatti responded to Kelly's "double jeopardy" comment Tuesday on Twitter. At one point, he stood up in anger and looked directly into the camera. As for their age, Kelly said, "I don't look at "much younger" than me, I just look at 'legal'". "When you beat something, you beat it", he said.

"But I'm not talking about the one case in which you were acquitted", says King. "I have nothing against none of these artists, but I think it's not professional for them to do that". "And I can't do it", Kelly added.

Kelly's speech continued for several moments before he became emotional, yelling, screaming, jumping up from his seat and waving his arms inches from King's face. "Is that what you're saying".

The parents of the 23-year-old have repeatedly accused Kelly of brainwashing her and holding her captive as part of a sex cult.

Kelly called claims that he held women against their will "stupid", and that "the power of social media" was to blame.

Asked if he had ever held anybody against their will, Kelly said, "I don't need to".

"How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through?" he asked. Is this camera on me?

"That's stupid! Use your common sense".

"Quit playing. I didn't do this stuff", he said. This is not me! "I mainly want to say that I'm in a happy place with my life and I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that", she told TMZ in 2017.

Ronn Torossian, a crisis management expert and CEO of 5W Public Relations, said King did a fantastic job speaking with Kelly in the almost 10-minute excerpt aired on "CBS This Morning".
