Joycelyn Savage is coming clean about her relationship with R. Kelly and it’s graphic and gruesome to say the least.
On Sunday the 24-year-old began posting what she called “her truth” on the crowd funding site Patreon. In the series of entries, Savage now claims to be the victim of sexual, physical and emotional abuse at the hands of the 52-year-old singer.
The admissions are a complete 180 from Savage’s previous account of her relationship with Kelly. Back in March Savage and Azriel Clary, another one of Kelly’s live-in girlfriends defended Kelly and their arrangement during a sit-down with Gayle King for CBS This Morning. She also appeared in two videos on TMZ and claimed that she was not being held against her will and it was her parents who were trying to extort money from Kelly.
The embattled star is facing sex crimes charges in three states, including federal indictments in Illinois and Brooklyn. He’s currently in jail in Chicago awaiting trial. Sources close to Kelly tell HH that both girls have left the Trump Tower apartment they lived in earlier this month.
Kelly’s lawyer Steven Greenberg accused Savage of seeking “to make money by exploiting her long time, loving relationship with Robert.”
“Obviously if she were to tell the truth no one would pay so she has, unfortunately, chosen to regurgitate the stories and lies told by others for her own personal profit,” Greenberg said in a statement to Variety
Savage said she met Kelly, in 2015, when she was 19 and described how their relationship went from shopping sprees and dinner dates to abuse and manipulation. She said she ultimately stayed because he promised to help her with her singing career.
“He was going to help me pursue my dreams, and to become a model/singer,” she wrote, adding: “He would say it exactly like this ‘Baby girl you are going to be the next Aaliyah.'”
Once she dropped out of college and moved in Savage claimed all the gifts and promises “went out the window.”
“I kept thinking to myself he just wants me to be safe, he wants the best for me he thinks someone is going to take me away from him,” Savage wrote on Sunday. “But it was me being delusional why would someone claim to love to keep me locked up like some damn animal.”
The Physical Abuse
Once, when Savage called Kelly “Baby” instead of his preferred “Master” or “Daddy” he choked her until she blacked out, she alleged.
“He grabbed me and choked me until I blacked out. I had bruises around my neck, and I was told by him to wear a turtle necks [sic] or a scarf to cover them up whenever he would take me out in public. I was frightened to tell anyone about this because of what he may do next. His assistant didn’t even care, and especially the other girls they were in for the money as well.”
Savage also discussed her sexual relationship with Kelly and revealed that she got pregnant twice and had two abortions one in 2016 and another in 2018. She said one of the abortions was performed at Kelly’s home rather than at a hospital or clinic. “I was forced to get the surgery done at his house,” Savage wrote. “He didn’t want me going to the hospital because news would break out.”
In 2016, she also said she heard rumors Kelly had contracted herpes and tried to use condoms to “protect” herself and prevent becoming “pregnant by this monster.”
Savage, like many other Kelly accusers claimed the singer liked to pee on them during sex. “Robert always had a fetish for pissing on his girls/woman [sic]. While he would piss on us he would make us swallow his piss and if we threw up piss would turn into feces.” She added that Kelly had allegedly urinated on her “numerous” times.
Savage said she became depressed, especially when she was forced to stay in her bedroom while Kelly “would bring different girls home that stayed just like me, and they were definitely younger than me.”
“I couldn’t talk to any of them until it was my time I had to wait in my room until rob was ready for me or his assistant will come in get me,” she wrote. “I was forced to come out of my room some days I didn’t feel like being Roberts cum rag or punching bag.”
