Kelly Loses It In CBS Interview, Denies Accusations


The charges involve four women, three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged events.

Interviews with the two women who live with Kelly will air Friday, including one woman whose parents say is being held against her will. Kelly suggested during the interview that the young woman's parents were in it for the money and put blame on them for his relationship with their daughter, saying they brought her to watch him perform when she was a teenager.

Ronn Torossian, a crisis management expert and CEO of 5W Public Relations, said King did a fantastic job speaking with Kelly in the almost 10-minute excerpt aired on "CBS This Morning".

King also interviewed Savage and Clary. Here's what he said in his interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning. "The point you're making is, you've never held anybody against their will?" she asks, before Kelly quickly interrupts. "But I knew that I wasn't in any real danger".

"But people have gone their whole careers and not have the allegations that have been leveled against you", she told him. "That's exactly what they're doing", he added. "Oh, my God. Um - all of them, got little girls trapped in the basement... helicopters over my house trying to rescue someone that doesn't need rescuing because they're not in my house", he said, adding, "Handcuffing people, starving people".

Kelly told King he agreed to the interview because he is "tired of all the lies".

He also tweeted, "Key things we learned from the R. Kelly interview: 1".

At one point during the interview, he became emotional, saying, "I didn't do this stuff! When you beat something, you beat it". Versus wild ranting, "We need to have a conversation", she quietly said, asking,"What kind of help [do you need]?" It's not fair to nobody. "When you beat your case, you beat your case".

Gayle King: But I'm not talking about the one case in which you were acquitted.

The mission is a test to win the approval of NASA, which is set to use the technology later this year if all goes well. No one is onboard the craft for the test flight with the exception of a test dummy named Ripley.

More than 10 years after R. Kelly sat down for his first interviews over allegations of relations with young and underaged girls, the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B is speaking out, once again. Kelly continued emotionally, standing up. "Why would I?" R. Kelly asked.

But a family in Georgia says they haven't been in contact with their daughter in two years. However, he made it clear that regardless of the "old rumors, new rumors, future rumors", it's all "not true".

R. Kelly: Not true. In the series, multiple women shared harrowing accounts of alleged sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of the 52-year-old.

Gayle King: Correct me if I'm wrong that you've never held anybody against their will?

"I don't need to". Kelly, vehemently denying that he has ever kept anyone against their will or had any involvement in abusing these women physically, looked to the camera and screamed "that is stupid guys!" "I hope this camera keep going".

"Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey are not playing around with sexual predators - period".

R. Kelly: That's stupid! "That's stupid! Use your common sense", he said, now visibly angry.

"The only thing I want to say is Joycelyn, if you're seeing this message please know that I love you. You don't want to believe it", he said. Just use your common sense.
