R. Kelly back in custody for failing to pay child support

The two brothers pictured in the photo later told police that Smollett had paid them to stage the attack because he wanted a raise and to further his career, prosecutors allege.

Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary described their relationship with him, defending the 52-year-old, despite their family's outspoken disapproval and fear for their safety. Both women were interviewed as well.

"At no point have the Savages requested any money from Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly, they have never received any money from Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly, they don't want any money from Robert Sylvester Kelly", Griggs said.

The recording artist has been trailed for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves. "From day one, the only thing we wanted to do was actually to see our daughter, hear from our daughter, and make sure she's fine". She endured Kelly's shouting, his looming figure, and some very ridiculous statements. "They said, because if they ever have to blackmail him, what they're trying to do now, they can use it against him, which is exactly what they're doing".

He suggested that the parents sold the girls.

King continued, "So what I was really thinking to myself was: I'm not done with this interview, so I'm going to let him have his moment. I'm telling y'all. I flew in on a helicopter with a damn puppy", Kelly exclaimed. I am fighting for me f***ing life.

"We both have our individual relationships with him, and we all are a family, all together", Clary said. He claimed that he recently went to the bank, supposedly for the first time ever, to take control of and rearrange his funds.


Kelly painted himself the victim.

"I don't need to".

Kelly, who was in the room during the women's interview, pleaded not guilty last month to charges that he sexually assaulted three teenage girls and a fourth woman.

And when Kelly told King that he needed somebody to "help [him] not have a big heart" - because, he said, "People betray me, and I keep forgiving them" - she countered, "You sound like you're playing the victim here". Ava DuVernay, who's directed films like Selma and A Wrinkle in Time, tweeted out in response to videos of the interview, "There's a lot going on in these R. Kelly clips".

In an additional portion of the interview that aired Thursday, Kelly again lashed out, crying and screaming when King asked about Andrea Kelly's claims of domestic violence. The other parts of the 80-minute chat will air on later this week and will also include his thoughts on Lady Gaga speaking out against him.

Clary went onto discuss her relationship with her family, calling her father "a manipulative liar" and denying his reports that his daughter had sex with Kelly when she was just 17. He said that due to his past-cases where he has been accused of sexual misdeeds-he would never commit a crime because people are watching him.
