'I’m Not a Devil!' R. Kelly’s Explosive Interview with Gayle King

R. Kelly Gayle King

The singer attempted to answer King's question by blaming "the power of social media", but the CBS anchor wasn't having it.

"I gave you 30 years of my f-ing career!" he shouted, now on his feet and circling his chair. The two women were not made available for comment on Wednesday.

The recording artist has been trailed for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves.

R. Kelly has screamed and cried while angrily denying allegations of sexual abuse against him. Ava DuVernay, who's directed films like Selma and A Wrinkle in Time, tweeted out in response to videos of the interview, "There's a lot going on in these R. Kelly clips". The 52-year-old is facing 70 years in prison after being indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse on February 22. Also in the special will be King's interview with two women now living with Kelly, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, portions of which are scheduled to air Thursday morning on CBS News' morning show, which King co-hosts.

Joycelyn's mother Jonjelyn offered a heartfelt message to her daughter, whom she has not seen for years.

"I was just waiting for her to say, 'Are you done yet?'" another user said.

Two women that R. Kelly has identified as his girlfriends allege that their parents, who say their daughters have been brainwashed by the R&B singer, are "basically out here just to get money".

Kelly insisted he has "absolutely not" broken any laws. And we never "sold" our daughter to him or anyone else. "All of the victims and parents can not be lying".

The full interview has yet to be released but from the snippets that have been circulating online, we can tell that it was a fiery and freakish encounter.

R. Kelly's interview with Gayle King is being memed to a bump and grind hell. The women's parents have alleged that Kelly is holding them against their will.

In Tuesday's tense interview, Kelly at times suggested the allegations against him were absurd, appealing to viewer's "common sense", and at other times said it was unfair to constantly return to his history. "If you really look at that documentary, which I'm sure you have, everybody says something bad about me". "[To say] 'I just think I need to be monster, hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!"

Kelly was taken back into custody Wednesday after a hearing in Chicago over unpaid child support. "When you beat something, you beat it", he said. I have a harem, what you call it - a cult.

"He fails to understand that it doesn't matter "how long ago" it happened. And he also has no clue as to how "double jeopardy" works".

While not defending R Kelly, one Twitter-user wrote that the different reactions are an insight into "how emotions from "angry" black people are perceived".
