R. Kelly Tried To Set The Record Straight With An Interview With Gayle King. It Was Probably A Mistake

March 6, 2019 / Posted by:

You may have already seen a few clips of Robert Sylvester Kelly sobbing, raging, and speaking directly to the camera in his CBS This Morning interview with Gayle King. It was a lot. We all know that Robert’s reading comprehension is not quite up to grade level, so maybe he read the invitation wrong. Maybe instead of agreeing to sit down with an adult woman and answer some very basic questions about the allegations he’s facing, he thought instead he was agreeing to come in and audition for a community theater bible play about wrongfully persecuted man whose only crime was having too big a heart.

Ladies and gentlemen, he did not get the part (the director’s notes read “melodramatic”, “clearly has not read the script”, and “even Al Pacino would say he’s doing too much”.

The most important takeaway from what we’ve seen of this interview so far (CBS plans on airing the entire 80-minutes tomorrow), is that Robert is a stone cold dum dum with a nasty temper. But we already knew that. But watching him flat out claim that he’s never, in his entire life, had sex with a girl who was under the age of 17, was pure comedy/tragedy.

Gayle also asked Robert about the documentary Surviving R. Kelly. He says that every single person in that film is lying. Every single one!

Here’s Gayle giving The Face That Launched A Thousand Meme’s as she placidly sits by as Robert spins out of control, pounding his chest and screeching at audience at home to “quit playing” cuz we’re killing him. This was in response to Gayle asking him if he’s ever held any women against their will.

Poor Robert, he’s suffering from Opposite Grinch Syndrome! Gayle went on to ask him about the two women, Jocelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, who are currently living with Kelly. He calls them his girlfriends, insists they are with him willingly, and that he’s not concerned about their age (the women are 21 and 23). Robert doesn’t look at age, he just looks at “legal”.

I was almost convinced there for a minute until he claimed that their parents sold them to him (via Page Six):

“What kind of love is it that keeps these young women away from their families?” asked King.

“What kind of father, what kind of mother would sell their daughter to a man?” he countered.

“So you’re saying the parents handed their daughters, Azriel and Jocelyn, to you?” King asked.

“Is that what you’re saying?”

He replied, “Absolutely.”

And just because this story could use just a pinch more aggressive male energy, here’s Michael Avenatti with the rebuttal.

I don’t know how much more aggrieved Robert I can take. Hopefully, when the rest of the interview airs tomorrow, it will just be Robert acting out all the parts in the 1999 Ashley Judd classic Double Jeopardy.
