Psychologist Analyzes R. Kelly's Interview With Gayle King

Adjust Comment Print

During the interview with Gayle King, R Kelly denied the allegations against him and said, "That's stupid!"

Even Kelly's attorney has been critical of letting defendants speak publicly. "I think there's enough impulse control there", he said. "I have been buried alive, but I'm alive".

Kelly, who was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008, came under scrutiny in January when the docuseries Surviving R. Kelly explored longstanding rumors about his behavior with women.

ON THE NO'S.... | Setting aside the abuse angle for a moment, King plainly asked, "Have you ever had sex with anyone under the age of 17?"

Kelly got extremely emotional, saying, "Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me".

The video started when co-host Gayle King asked R. Kelly if he had sexual relations with underage girls, R. Kelly avoided the question.

Sharing a clip of the blow-up, Twitter user @WordOnWilletsPt said: "12-year old me after getting a detention for drawing d-ks on the smartboard".

R. Kelly's Mugshot Released After Arrest for Unpaid Child Support
Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly , who is at the centre of the child custody case, also has previously accused him of domestic abuse. Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Kelly and the Cook County Sheriff's Office for further comment.

Long after R. Kelly should have been shunned, Baton Rouge gave him a key to the city, and a civil rights organization lauded him.

"It looks like a modern renaissance painting", one person tweeted, as many others followed suit.

"I didn't do this stuff". "This is not me. I'm fighting for my fucking life!"

Although he maintained that he could not discuss his previous cases in detail, due to the charges he's facing right now, he did say "people are going back to my past and they're trying to add all of this stuff now- to that". He insisted the past allegations were not relevant to the new accusations about his behavior with underage women.

"You can't double jeopardy me, it's not fair to nobody!" he exclaimed. However, he made it clear that regardless of the "old rumors, new rumors, future rumors", it's all "not true". King perhaps registered no more conspicuous combo of disbelief and disgust than when Kelly posited that the two young women now in his life (/possession?) were not taken from their families but given to him, one by a groupie father. Asked how he would react if one of his daughters accused someone else of doing what Kelly is accused of, the singer said "I would have to arrest myself after I did what I had to do".

The parents of Joycelyn Savage held a press conference earlier today, to respond to Gayle King's explosive interview with R. Kelly.

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". King received praise from her colleagues for keeping her cool as she "remained tough and calm" throughout the experience, but Norah O'Donnell said she was "worried" about her when she "saw the pictures". Inside Edition spoke to psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere to get his take on the interview, during which Kelly became extremely emotional. "Is that what you're saying to us?" "This is all fucking lies for money".
