R. Kelly Claims Parents "Sold" Daughters to Him, Says He's Been "Assassinated"

March 6, 2019

R. Kelly bizarrely claims in his CBS This Morning interview on Wednesday that at least two of the women he's alleged to have kept hostage in abusive relationships were given to him by their parents. "What kind of father, what kind of mother would sell their daughter to a man?" the 52-year-old R&B star asked Gayle King in their explosive sitdown about two of his alleged victims, Jocelyn Savage and Azriel Clary. King asks in reply, "So you’re saying the parents handed their daughters, Azriel and Jocelyn, to you? Is that what you’re saying?” Says Kelly, "Absolutely." He also said about his accusers, "All of them are lying. I have been assassinated.” Kelly was charged in Chicago last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.
