Kelly’s girlfriends defend him in second day of CBS coverage

Gayle King with Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary

She said Clary's account was true. The family members said they had not spoken to Joycelyn Savage in two years and she is being held against her will. I'm not disrespecting her by saying she's not telling the truth. "All these women are wrong, ' and I go, 'All these women are lying except for you?' That just defies logic", she said. "After the interview started, he was around the corner behind them", said King. She has alleged she had a sexual relationship with the singer when she was 16.

The interview with R. Kelly quickly turned emotional; the star said he never did any of the things claimed in the Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, including "hog-tying" a woman.

Two women whose families have complained that Kelly is controlling them spoke to King about their relationship with the singer.

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.

Kelly's next hearing in the child support case is on March 13 and his next court date on the sex abuse charges is March 22, Reuters revealed.

Both Savage, age 21, and 23-year-old Clary deny claims by their respective parents that they have been "brain-washed" by Kelly and are being held in Chicago against their will. Clary confirmed that she met Kelly when she was 17 but did not have sex with him when she was a minor. Clary also accused her parents of encouraging her to make "sexual videos" with Kelly and then blackmailing him for money.

A lawyer representing the couple bristled at the allegation, saying Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage never asked for or received money from Kelly. Added Savage, "A very strong relationship as well". I'm fighting for my f-ing life!

He said he is waiting for a response by her or her attorney Gloria Allred. "And that's when it became real to me, like 'Drea, you're being abused'".

Oprah Winfrey Praises Gayle King For R. Kelly Interview; Twitter Blasts Kelly
It's also believe that new CBS News President Susan Zirinsky is keen to spend more money to keep great talent at the network. Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true", Kelly said. "I don't need to".

During the tearful interview, they dismissed claims by their parents that they have been brainwashed, with Clary calling her father a "manipulative liar". "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".

Following R. Kelly's explosive interview Wednesday with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, two women who are reportedly dating the embattled singer criticized their parents, with one claiming that her mother and father told her to lie about how old she was.

As of Thursday, Kelly's children had not commented.

"The second week I was there, I was plotting my escape", McGee said. "You're trying to solicit me like I'm some fucking ho. How come it was ok for me to see them until they weren't getting no money from it?"

He said: "Quit playing, I didn't do this stuff".

The conversation between King and Kelly is his first TV interview since he was charged with sexual abuse last month.

R. Kelly also told King his finances are in shambles because "so many people have been stealing my money".
