R. Kelly Was "Pleased" With "Passionate" Gayle King Interview

April 8, 2019

R. Kelly thinks his notoriously explosive interview with Gayle King went well enough that he's open to sitting down for another one. King told Page Six on Friday that she called his reps the day after the interview. "They were really pleased--because they thought people got to see how passionate he was. They got to see his pain," King said. On camera, Kelly lost his cool with the CBS This Morning host, standing and shouting and pounding his chest as they discussed the criminal sexual abuse allegations against him. He is currently out on $1 million bail.
