Gayle King Speaks On Her Explosive R. Kelly Interview

Family Of Joycelyn Savage Hold Press Conference Following R. Kelly Interview [VIDEO]

So far, the public has learned that Kelly denies all allegations made against him. My lawyer was telling me no.

The singer's recent legal troubles have highlighted the fact that his finances are now "a mess", and he even claimed in a recent CBS interview that someone had been stealing from his bank accounts. King appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and discussed her intense interview with Kelly, who is facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for the alleged sexual assault of four women.

Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage, parents to the 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage, sat down with CBS This Morning's Gayle King in an interview Friday. Maybe I can't read or write or math, but I'm still a person. "I also think he has some explaining to do". But that doesn't mean that this week's news cycle has done right by Kelly's accusers. Watching the women plead his case, my mind turned to HBO's Leaving Neverland and the post-show discussion King's best friend Oprah moderated with the Michael Jackson accusers it profiled, James Safechuck and Wade Robson. "He said he was here two days ago, and you wouldn't even look him in the eye", King said. "All I can say is I really love my job". During that interview, they offered a calmer, more poised defense of the singer that I nonetheless found more chilling than Kelly's temper tantrum.

"Let me tell, you, Robin", Johnson said, "there's a lot more evidence that hasn't been presented yet, and does not support the version he gave".

The Fox News co-hosts were talking about Kelly's emotional outburst during his sit-down interview with King. "I love them and it's like they're my girlfriends, it's like we have a relationship".

As appropriately as possible, King asked the girls if their relationship with R. Kelly was a "three-way" thing or if they both have individual relationships with him.

"I agree", Watters said, "hats off to Gayle King for totally redeeming herself after the Smollett fiasco". "And they said because if they ever have to blackmail him, what they're trying to do now, they can use it against him, which is exactly what they're doing". These men, who say the pop icon started abusing them before they hit puberty, not only kept that trauma to themselves for decades but publicly defended Jackson as young adults. Throughout it, Kelly sort of speak-sings the story, generally in the same melody - though calling it such is a bit of a stretch.

Kelly cried, yelled, ranted and rose from his seat during the interview, portions of which which aired this week on "CBS This Morning".

A career they say they supported and believed R. Kelly could mentor based on his 2008 acquittal.

"Speaking of Drea ... she maintains she's open to Kelly reconnecting with their children, who are adults now".
