R. Kelly Cries While Denying Sex Crime Allegations In Gayle King Interview
R. Kelly has had a very rough 2019 and the storm isn’t over anytime soon. Kelly who has been quiet since allegations of sexual misconduct against minors came up again in January had an emotional fit recently. The singer was charged last month, although he has since pleaded not guilty to the crimes he’s been accused of. However, tomorrow morning, his first interview since being charged will air. CBS shared a small snippet of it earlier today.
R. Kellly sat down with Gayle King in his first interview since being charged with 10 counts of sexual misconduct. The singer denied all of the allegations against him while breaking down into tears. The singer said that his past case is coming back to haunt him.
Old rumors, new rumors, future rumors. Not true!’ he said. After claiming he beat his case, Gayle tells him he was acquitted. He replied, “You can’t double jeopardy me. That’s not fair. When you beat your case, you beat your case!”
“How stupid would I be to do that?!” He replied when asked if he ever held any woman against his will. “That’s stupid! Use your common sense. Forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. Just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I have been through, now I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will and chain them in my basement and don’t let them eat?”
He added, “Stop it, y’all quit playin’! I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me! I’m fighting for my fuckin’ life!”
NEW: R&B singer R. Kelly, charged with aggravated sexual abuse, angrily denied the accusations in a new interview with @GayleKing, insisting the claims are “rumors” & “not true.”
