R. Kelly Being Investigated in Detroit for Separate Underage Sex Claim

R. Kelly

When interviewer Gayle King asked whether the children want to have a relationship with him, Kelly replied, "I bet you they do".

David France, Drea Kelly's manager, told the Sun-Times, "Mr. Kelly has more than 20 people on his staff who, needless to say, are being paid".

Kelly has denied the charges, and his attorney, Steve Greenberg, has said his client is innocent.

According to Azriel, her parents are trying to extort money from Kelly and threatened to leak sexual footage and photos of her if he didn't pay up.

In portions of the interview already aired, Kelly has denied all of the accusations, saying they are lies being perpetrated by women seeking book and movie deals who, he told King, are trying to "assassinate" him. "After speaking with her little sister, Joycelyn paused from the seemingly prepared script and was able to share her love for her family".

"How could I pay child support if my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can't work?" he said.

Two women living with R. Kelly have come to the embattled singer's defense in a new TV interview.

It was first teased Tuesday night and aired in part Wednesday morning.

During the interview, Kelly insisted he was innocent, telling King he was being "buried alive" and "assassinated". "Both our parents are basically out here trying to get money and scam 'cause they didn't agree on what happened", she said. Earlier in the day, "CBS This Morning" aired an interview in which Kelly pleaded with viewers to believe that he'd never had sex with anyone under 17 and never held anyone against her will.

Kelly, who is also facing felony charges that allege he sexually abused three girls and a woman in Chicago years ago, shouted and cried as he spoke with Gayle King of "CBS This Morning". "We've received information from [the] Chicago Police Department of a victim, who lives out-of-state, who had made allegation [s] of a criminal sexual conduct incident against R. Kelly", the statement read. Last month he was arrested and charged with a list of sex charges, including the abuse of underage girls.

Friday's special also will include a team of CBS News journalists who will explore the allegations of abuse against Kelly, his denials and more.

Kelly became emotional, saying such allegations have left him unable to spend time with his children.

"I actually never thought that", King began, "I thought I might get accidentally clobbered, but I didn't think that he would deliberately try to hurt me".
