A post shared by Gayle King (@gayleking) on
King’s interview with Azriel Clary, 21 and Jocelyn Savage, 23 left many people unsettled. Their aggressive defense of Kelly mirrored the pattern of abuse that several of his victims were all too familiar with, according to The Grapevine. The pair allege that their relationship with Kelly is entirely consensual and the allegations against the ‘Ignition’ singer are entirely false.
Where is R. Kelly now?
R. Kelly is out on
bail and currently in Chicago. The disgraced R&B artist was released from
prison on Saturday after being picked up last Wednesday for failing to pay
child support. He appeared in front of a judge to request a reduction in child
support payments just hours before the false tip was received by police. His
request was denied.
Before being picked up for failure to pay child support,
Kelly was hauled in by Cook County officers for a plethora of child sex abuse
accusations. Kelly was bailed out of jail by an anonymous friend. According to Billboard,
the unnamed friend may be Valencia P. Love, a Chicago restauranteur.
According to ABC News, Love was asked if she posted the bond, and she admitted that she had. Love, however, alleges the money was Kelly’s not hers, and she just facilitated the transfer.
