After the interview, King said Kelly was present in the room as she spoke to the women and that he cleared his throat loudly as certain topics were brought up. He rambled about proposing to his ex-wife Andrea on a helicopter with a puppy and denied ever abusing her.
Two women living with R. Kelly have come to the embattled singer's defense in a new TV interview.
After taking a minute for Kelly to regain his composure, King tried to rein the situation in. "Didn't know what the hell was going on".
Wendy Williams kicked off "Hot Topics" with R. Kelly and the sexual abuse allegations against him for the 2nd day in a row on March 7. "It's real and I've known guys all my life to have five or six women, ok, so don't go there on me because that's the truth", Kelly explained of the women, who claim they're happy residing with him.
Kelly insisted he needed help. "You all just don't want to believe it", he said angrily. You killing me, man! "I'm just being honest".
The singer wept, said he had little money left and blamed his ex-wife for destroying his reputation and his relationship with his children.
"After, Oprah and my kids Kirby and Will called me to ask if I was okay because it looked scary".
Kelly also says other people have rifled his bank account. He added, "Because I was so exhausted of not knowing where my money was, what my publishing is". He said through tears: "How can I pay child support? How?!"
Where the investigations related to President Trump stand
The Trump Foundation is already under investigation by the NY attorney general, which also ordered it to be closed down. William Barr has since been confirmed as attorney general.
The woman said she was assaulted at a hotel in 2001 and had an abusive relationship with R. Kelly for years.
In an interview with Gayle King on "CBS This Morning", singer R. Kelly once again denied the numerous allegations against him of sexual abuse.
"In my history as a prosecutor, I loved it when a defendant would say things or make comments about his or her defence", said Illinois Judge Joseph Birkett, who said he did not watch the Kelly interview and was speaking only as a former prosecutor. "We hope that today was the first step to re-establishing a loving relationship with her family".
The attorney for Savage's parents, Gerald Griggs, said at a Wednesday press conference in Atlanta that the family has also never received money from Kelly, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
King told O, The Oprah Magazine about her experience: "I was not scared". "Both our parents are out here trying to get money and scam because they didn't agree on what happened with music or whatever it may be and they're just very upset", Savage said.
During the tearful interview, they dismissed claims by their parents that they have been brainwashed, with Clary calling her father a "manipulative liar". Kelly, Clary, and Savage all deny that Kelly attempted to lure them in with promises of advancing their musical careers.
In the interview, Clary said she first met Kelly at one of his concerts in 2015.
During her emotional outburst, King responded with calm compassion. "This not me", Kelly told "CBS This Morning", saying he was "fighting" for his life in an interview to air Wednesday.
