The RnB singer is a man in the news for all the wrong reasons. The allegations and public ridicule seems to have taken a toll on him as he let the tears out during his first interview after being granted bail.
During the interview with Gayle King, which took place on Tuesday, March 6, he was seen shouting, ‘I’m fighting for my fucking life!’
R Kelly has been accused of sexual misconduct as far back as 1998,
and includes allegations from parents of victims who’ve publicly accused Kelly of holding women against their will in what was described as an abusive and controlling ‘cult’.
He emphasized he had been acquitted in one case already.
Kelly was taken into custody February 22 in Chicago, and spent several days behind bars before coming up with his $100,000 bail. He says he is innocent of all charges.
Several Celebrities have removed R kelly’s songs from their streams and singer Celine Dion has been the most recent.
When King, who kept her compose in the face of Kelly’s emotion, asked if he’d ever held anyone against their will, he returned to his lawyer’s old argument, he didn’t need to because he’s a ‘rockstar’.
How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I’ve been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody – let alone, 4, 5, 6, 50 you said – how stupid would I be to do that? Use your common sense.
Well, a man is still innocent until proven guilty, but there are rumours of a video of R kelly sleeping with a 13 year old girl and it happens to be true, jail is a done deal for your favourite soul singer. But you can still play his songs though.
