Gayle King interviews 2 women who are reportedly dating R. Kelly

As King spoke about the interview with her colleagues on CBS This Morning, she revealed that Kelly was nearby when she spoke to spoke to Savage and Clary, and that he kept coughing "very loudly" from around the corner in an apparent effort to alert them of his presence. King said she thought she "might get accidentally clobbered, but I never felt in danger talking" to the emotional Kelly. King said to her CBS This Morning co-hosts, during round-table patter between excerpts, that she had not feared he would hurt her, despite his high degree of agitation, except maybe by accident because he got so keyed up during the interview, which she conducted in his Chicago apartment.

Savage, 23, alleged that her and Clary's parents were "out here to get money".

The parents deny ever receiving or even asking Kelly for money.

In portions of the interview already aired, Kelly has denied all of the accusations, saying they are lies being perpetrated by women seeking book and movie deals who, he told King, are trying to "assassinate" him.

Savages' family also reportedly accused the singer earlier Wednesday of shielding their daughter from them. The family says they had not spoken to her in two years and she is being held against her will.

King's interview with Kelly was his first major interview since Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly documentary series aired in January.

It was first teased Tuesday night and aired in part Wednesday morning.

R. Kelly is back in custody after law enforcement officials arrested the "I Admit" singer for unpaid child support.


R. Kelly, born Robert Kelly, returned to Cook County Jail on Wednesday, according to inmate records.

During the interview, Kelly insisted he was innocent, telling King he was being "buried alive" and "assassinated".

Kelly said those lies include that he's holding women against their will and that he has a "cult".

Three of Kelly's alleged victims in Chicago were under the age of 17 at the time of the abuse. "The incident allegedly occurred in the City of Detroit when the victim was 13 years old".

His attorney entered not guilty pleas in that case for him, and on CBS, Kelly demonstratively maintained he is innocent.
