R Kelly says ex-wife destroyed his name, others stole money

Wendy Williams & R. Kelly

Kelly was taken into custody in Chicago on Wednesday following a hearing for his child support case; previously, he was ordered to pay more than $160,000 to his second ex-wife, Andrea Lee.

Kelly who blamed people going back to the past to ruin his career said these allegations are affecting his relationship with his children.

He said his wife was lying when she alleged he had abused her. Kelly says he has "zero" relationship with his children, but says he knows they love him.

He went on to claim that multiple people had access to his account prior to his bank trip and were "stealing" from him.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Savage's family denied asking Kelly for money, adding, "From day one, the only thing we want to do is hear from our daughter and know she's fine". The tweet said that Gayle King said Kelly coughed loudly throughout the Savage and Clary interview.

The alleged victim, who is now 30, has claimed Kelly lured her to his Detroit hotel room for sex when she was just 13 years old in December 2001, Chicago's CBS 2 reports.

"We never "sold" our daughter to him or anyone else ..." "When I went into the interview Stephen, I knew he wasn't going to say, 'You know Gayle, you're right. I'm fighting for my f-king life!", Kelly said directly into the camera.

Kylie Jenner is officially the world's youngest billionaire
It's worth pointing out, though, that Jenner had an enormous leg up when it came to building, promoting, and scaling her company. The magazine lauded Jenner as " self-made " because she didn't inherit any money from her family, but built her own businesses.

When asked about their relationship with Kelly, who has been charged with more than 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, Clary said that they "live with him" and are "in a relationship with him".

The victim said she and Kelly had sex again a few weeks later at a Detroit recording studio. If convicted R. Kelly could spend up to 70 years in prison.

"We want the record to remain clear that at no point did Tim, Jonjelyn Savage ever request, ever demand, ever receive financial compensation from Robert Sylvester Kelly", said Gerald Griggs, the attorney representing the family. He said Kelly did not have the whole amount because he has not been able to work. Johnson said Kelly was prepared to pay as much as $60,000 US. She was 17 years old at the time, and he pulled her up on stage, she said.

Kelly's options for earning money dwindled after the release of a BBC documentary about him previous year and the multipart Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which aired last month.

At this point, Kelly stood up, pounding his fist and beating his chest as he declared: "Are you all trying to kill me?"

The interview with Kelly was first teased Tuesday night and aired in part Wednesday morning. Kelly's team only had two stipulations, King said.

Nodding in agreement, Savage chimed in: "Everything that she's saying is true". Kelly said, standing up. "Yes. And they said, because if they ever have to blackmail him - what they're trying to do now - they can use it against him, which is exactly what they're doing", replied Clary.
