In a stunning reversal, a woman who said she was "very happy" with R. Kelly earlier this year now claims he was a "monster" who kept her "prisoner," CBS News is reporting. In March, Joycelyn Savage said she was happy with the R&B singer and that he never promised her that he'd further her singing career. However, lately Savage has been posting online claiming the opposite, saying she was the victim of multiple kinds of abuse, including that she had two abortions because she didn't want to have children with him. Kelly's spokesman says, this is clearly a move to get money, saying, "it was not until the money ran out that she decided anything was wrong." Kelly is currently awaiting trial.
