Part two of R. Kelly’s shocking sit-down with Gayle King aired Thursday morning and again it left many wondering why the R&B singer would put himself in such a compromising situation. Many thought Kelly was full of lies, but other thought he was full of hurt…
Similarly to the part one of the interview, Kells yelled, cried and empathetically denied any negative thing that has been said about him. However, this time around, the interview centered on his children and his hopes for a future relationship with them.
Ironically, Kelly was arrested Wednesday evening for failure to pay over $161,000 in back child support for the three kids he has with ex-wife Drea Kelly. When King asked about his finances, Kelly admitted they were in shambles. The singer, who many thought was worth millions, said he went to Bank of American for the first time unassisted just a few weeks ago and realized he only had 350k in his account. However, he believes his financial straits are due to multiple things — namely, people stealing his money and his unfortunate lack of attention to the situation — but, he also blames his ex for the reason why he can’t pay the child support.
“How can I pay child support — How? — if my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can’t work?” Kelly said through tears. “How can I work? How can I get paid? How can I take care of my kids? How? Use your common sense.”
The tears continued as Gayle interviewed Kelly’s TWO girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage, 23, and Azriel Clary, 21. Clary cried through the interview claiming her parents were money-hungry manipulators who should not be believed. She also tried to check King when the journalist asked about the sexual relationship between the two young women and their 52-year-old “boyfriend”. But, King remained cool.
