Oprah Winfrey Praises Gayle King For R. Kelly Interview; Twitter Blasts Kelly

A publicist for R&B singer R. Kelly says he was taken into custody Wednesday for failing to pay more than $160 thousand in child support

In his first interview since his arrest last month for sexual abuse, embattled R&B singer R. Kelly lashed out on "CBS This Morning", at several points yelling and saying his multiple accusers were lying and conspiring against him.

R. Kelly got emotional as he claimed he was "fighting for his f-king life" in an interview about the various sexual abuse charges the singer is now facing.

The Lifetime series, Surviving R. Kelly aired with heartbreaking testimonies from women detailing vicious beatings and sexual abuse and it included testimony from parents of girls who was allegedly victimized by Kelly and even his former tour manager.

Wendy Williams was conflicted about R. Kelly's interview with Gayle King!

What stories have disturbed him the most? "You know I've been around for a very long time... the radio days - I went from finding him hella guilty, to guilty and feeling really sorry for him and wanting him to get help". I have a harem, what you call it - a cult.

Another part of the disgraced singer's interview saw him speaking out against John Legend (who took part in the documentary) as well as Lady Gaga who has since regretted her 2013 collaboration "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly. "I made mistakes, but I'm not a devil".

Kelly was also asked about his relationship with the two women he now lives with - Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23.

"They are still talking about you and underage girls". The singer gave an emphatic, "No!" When asked about being molested, said that it has "absolutely not" affected his behavior. "I have been buried alive from these lies". "How does all of this sit with you, how you're viewed now in the industry?"

Leaving Neverland aired on HBO last night and showcased the alleged abuse that Michael Jackson conducted. Feldman famously came forward with claims that he was sexually abused as a child. "I loved Michael.

"I don't need to!"

"That's stupid, guys! Is this camera on me?"

"Just use your common sense", Kelly said.

"How do you feel about how people view you in the industry?" I'm your mother, I love you dearly. But just use your common sense. "How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through - oh right now I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!" You don't quit playing. "Stop it! Y'all quit playing!" This is not me! "I'm fighting for my f*cking life!" "Y'all killing me with this s**t!" "But people have gone their whole careers and not have the allegations that have been leveled against you", King responded.

"Not true. Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true", Kelly said.

"I don't need to". I need somebody to help me not have a big heart. I'm just telling the truth. Kelly continued emotionally, standing up. It's because this is the first time I was able to say something.

Gayle, by the way, has been praised for her composure during the emotional interview.

It's also believe that new CBS News President Susan Zirinsky is keen to spend more money to keep great talent at the network. His next court date on the child support case is on March 13.
