R. Kelly gives explosive interview while out on bail

R. Kelly gives explosive interview while out on bail

And they have never asked R. Kelly for a single penny. "I have been buried alive", added the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer.

After being arrested and charged with ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse last week, and subsequently released after paying USA $100,000 bail, R. Kelly has strongly denied the allegations in a new interview.

In the interview broadcast on Wednesday, Kelly accused Savage's parents of "selling" their daughter to him. "I've been hearing things and seeing things on all of the blogs and I'm just exhausted". Kelly's team, he said, was working hard to get the $161,633 needed to secure his release. "How stupid would I be to do that!" he says as tears start to stream down his face.

Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse in Chicago two weeks ago, after years of reporting alleging that the singer regularly groomed captive women for sex, many of them underage.

He was prepared to pay up to $60,000 of what he owed to his former wife, Andrea Kelly, and their three children, but the judge required the full amount.

Now he says his reputation is being used against him.

Kelly has denied the charges, and his attorney, Steve Greenberg, has said his client is innocent.

"I have personally reached out to the attorney in the case, Gloria Allred via email so hopefully we will get a response back", Craig said.

The statement was issued a day after Kelly's explosive interview with Gayle King where he suggested that the parents of both Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage were using their daughters to get money out of him.

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

After the first part of Kelly's interview with King aired Wednesday, a photo of Kelly standing over King screaming while she remained calm and poised went viral.

"We never "sold" our daughter to him or anyone else ..." "How come it was OK for them to see me until they weren't getting no money from me?" He told "CBS This Morning" in an interview that aired Thursday that other people stole from his accounts and he was "tired of not knowing where my money was".

Savage backed up Clary's account of the situation. "You're trying to solicit me like I'm some kind of f***ing prostitute".

After Kelly claimed that everyone who's spoken out against him was lying, she questioned why his female accusers would possibly make up these stories about him.

He broke down in tears, saying that he was "fighting for his life". A complaint filed in 1997 by a Chicago woman named Tiffany Hawkins alleged sexual battery and sexual harassment while she was a minor. The allegations date back as far as 1998 and span more than a decade.

The 52-year-old singer has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty. "We have a relationship - it's real". "My kids is listening to this, all of this nonsense and I ain't been able to spend no time with them".

But as King pointed out afterwards, Kelly was never out of earshot - and he made sure both girls knew that.

Authorities are looking into a woman's claims that R&B singer R. Kelly had sex with her in 2001 in Detroit when she was 13 years old.
