R. Kelly's Girlfriends Defend Him Following Explosive Gayle King Interview

R. Kelly's Girlfriends Defend Him Following Explosive Gayle King Interview

R. Kelly was abusive to me, emotionally and physically and verbally. Three of them were listed as underage at the time of his alleged offending.

Clary then told King that her "manipulative" parents have sent "threats" to she and Kelly, saying that they will "put all [their] naked pictures all over the world" if they don't receive certain amounts of money.

Speaking in the CBS interview, Kelly claimed the earlier case was being held against him once again since the new allegations came to light. Someone said I hog-tied her, I don't know how to hoe-tie people!

Kelly was released from jail on February 25 after being indicted by a grand jury on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four alleged victims, Cook Country Sheriff confirmed to PEOPLE.

Kelly lamented to CBS that he was unable to access $350,000 because he had moved the money from one bank account to a new account, and the funds had not cleared in time to use it for his child support.

Meanwhile, Kelly was taken into custody on Wednesday in Chicago during a child support hearing.

"Absolutely, no it's not [relevant] because, for one, I beat my case", he said, referring to the 2008 case where he was acquitted.

In a tearful interview broadcast on Thursday, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage (aged 21 and 23, respectively) accused their own parents of trying to extort money from the performer. The attorneys for both families have said they have never asked for or received any money from Kelly. Clary even claimed that her parents encouraged her to make sexual videos with Kelly while she was still 17, so that they would have footage to blackmail him in the future.

In the CBS interview, Kelly said Savage and Clary are his girlfriends. "What kind of father, what kind of mother, will sell their daughter to a man?" "They don't want any money".

King also interviewed Clary, and a portion of the interview aired Wednesday morning. Watch the interview footage with Kelly here; watch the interview with Savage and Clary here.

"I'm crying, because you guys don't know the truth!" You guys are believing this f--king façade that our parents are saying. Her parents claimed they had texts to prove otherwise. A complaint filed in 1997 by a Chicago woman named Tiffany Hawkins alleged sexual battery and sexual harassment while she was a minor. "Y'all killing me with this sh-t". How can I take care of my kids? How?

The recording artist has been trailed for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves.

A state of IL tax lien of about $24,000 was filed in 2002 against Kelly and now-ex-wife Andrea Kelly.

The 52-year-old singer has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty.

The latest charges against the singer span from 1998 to 2010, according to Cook County, Illinois, State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

Kelly was also asked about his relationship with the two women he now lives with.

Kelly, who spoke to CBS News for more than one hour, claimed that all the women accusing him of physical and sexual abuse are lying. "I've made mistakes. But I'm not a devil and by no means am I a monster".

Supporters are working to get Kelly out of jail by next week, publicist Darrell Johnson told reporters. She said during a visit to his Atlanta home, they engaged in sex and she says that's when she contracted the incurable disease.
