Kelly arrested for failure to pay child support

"I'm not, I'm your child", she said through tears. The two have shared their belief that Joycelyn is "being held against her will" by Kelly. "Tell me", King said.

Savage, 23, alleged that her and Clary's parents were "out here to get money". King has one year left in her contract, with a salary estimate of $6 million a year, according to the outlet. "I don't know how else to ensure that a lie holds up without the perpetrator in the room", it reads.

The Clarys also released a statement saying that they had never sold their "daughter for a penny" nor had they ever asked Kelly for any money. Kelly told a judge he could not pay $161,000 in back child support he owes to his ex-wife and mother of his three children, Andrea Kelly.

Later, a tearful, unhinged Kelly lashed out at his ex-wife, saying she destroyed his livelihood and blaming that for his inability to pay her: "How can I pay child support? How?" (The singer was taken into custody for failing to pay the charges yesterday in Chicago.) In an attempt to counteract reports that he had made expensive settlements with three women accusing him of abuse, R. Kelly instead claimed, ambiguously, that "people have been stealing [his] money". "When I was 17, my parents were trying to make me take photos with him, take sexual videos with him". Kelly denies all the allegations.

"A very strong relationship", Savage said.

Speaking in the studio between clips of her interview, King said that Kelly sat in on her time with the two women, despite having agreed not to.

That lawyer, Gloria Allred, would not confirm that she represented the woman and Craig said he has not heard back from Allred, either. "King laughed and recounted how after Dana Perino corrected Watters on-air, she got Perino's email address and wrote: "'Thank you for letting him know that we're two different people, and could you let the rest of your colleagues know that all black people do not look alike.


Last month, Kelly was indicted on 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct related to multiple alleged sexual encounters with underage girls. When questioned about their young ages, he replied, "I don't look at much younger than me".

"I'm very exhausted of all of the lies", Kelly said.

If you get someone who is ranting and raving, I would never let that kind of person ever do an interview.

Interviews with Clary and Savage will air on Thursday morning. This is all fucking lies for money.

R. Kelly opened up about his financial struggles to CBS reporter Gayle King in the second part of their highly-publisised interview. If he doesn't send $20,000 to this bank account by Monday, oh, I'm gonna put everything out there, and then $10,000 after that.' You're trying to solicit me like I'm some f**king ho. "Because I was so exhausted of not knowing where my money was, where my publishing was". "I was not having sex with him at 17".

King spoke to Stephen Colbert about what was going through her mind at the moment when R Kelly stood up in the interview and had an outburst.
