Last night time, a number of clips from the interview have been previewed after it had wrapped up, exhibiting the singer crying and yelling uncontrollably at elements. He vehemently denies having intercourse with underage women, noting that he is "crushed his case" up to now so current rumours and future rumours shouldn't be thought of. "Everybody says one thing unhealthy about me," stated Kelly in reference to the Surviving documentary. "Nobody stated nothin' good. They was describing Lucifer. I am not Lucifer. I am a person. I make errors, however I am not a satan, and on no account am I a monster."
At one level in the course of the interview, R. Kelly really wanted to be bodily restrained by an unidentified man off digicam. He denies many instances all through his dialog with Gayle King that he has ever had intercourse with anyone beneath the age of 17, even saying that the mother and father of his accusers "bought" their kids to him. "What type of father, what sort of mom would promote their daughter to a person?" requested Kelly. When King asks if Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary have been handed off to him by their mother and father, he responds, "Absolutely. They're my girlfriends; we've a relationship; it is actual. I do know guys who've 5 or 6 ladies, so do not go there."
When talking on how he is even gotten on this place, Kelly emotionally advised King that he simply has a extremely massive coronary heart. "I need assistance," admitted the singer. "I want any person to assist me not have a giant coronary heart. My coronary heart is so massive that folks maintain enjoying me and I maintain forgiving them."
