Robert Kelly, or as he’s infamously well renowned by his initial, R Kelly, sat down with Gayle King to talk about the recent allegations that he’s been charged with.

The sexual assault charges he escaped all those years ago came back to haunt Kelly in February. These were accompanied by a set of new allegations that he recently sexually abused a minor.

Kelly is currently out on bail and, in the interview with CBS This Morning’s King, it was the first time the world had seen him since he posted bail.

The full interview has yet to be released but from the snippets that have been circulating online, we can tell that it was a fiery and bizarre encounter.

Denies allegations of sexual abuse against minors

King wasted no time in getting to the crux of the matter. She probed a highly defensive Kelly on the allegations that he has allegedly had sexual relations with minors since his acquittal in 2008.

“They are still talking about you and underage girls. Do you still sit here and say you have never been with underage girls? Do you really say that?” asked King

Kelly stated that because of an ongoing investigation related to the question, there was a lot he could not discuss but he vehemently denied having any sexual relations with minors.

“I’ll sit here and say this. I had two cases back then that I said in the beginning of the interview that I would not talk about because of my ongoing case now.

“But, I will tell you this. People are going back to my past… and they are trying to add all of this stuff now, to that. To make all of this stuff that’s going on now, feel real to people,” he exclaimed.

Denies he physically and mentally abused women

Kelly was also asked about the shocking things we heard from women that have spoken out about how they were physically and mentally abused by Kelly.

This is where things got a little bizarre. Kelly, vehemently denying that he has ever kept anyone against their will or had any involvement in abusing these women physically, looked to the camera and screamed “that is stupid guys!”

“Use your common sense. Forget the blogs. Forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want, but just use your common sense.

“How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through. ‘Oh right now I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will and chain them up in my basement, and don’t let them eat and don’t let them out unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle’. Quite playing!” he screamed.

The full interview is an hour and 30 minutes long and will be released on Wednesday, Kelly is expected back in court on Friday, 22 March. The severity of the case could see Kelly spend at least 70 years in prison if found guilty on all counts.
