R. Kelly screams and shouts in explosive CBS interview with Gayle King


Singer R. Kelly broke his silence in an exclusive interview with CBS after being charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

Speaking with Gayle King, the singer strongly defended himself despite the string of sexual allegations made against him involving young girls between the ages of 13 and 16. As the interview progressed, Kelly lost his composure and began to shout. The singer then stood up mid-interview and began to scream to the shock of the CBS production crew. After a short moment, the interview was suspended as the singer became more visibly emotional. Kelly’s publicist a few moments later decided to intervene, holding the singer back and trying to calm him down.

R. Kelly strongly denied he had committed any of the offenses saying the allegations were “stupid” and claimed “I have been assassinated.”

The decade-long run of allegations made against the singer came to a climax when prosectors in Chicago charged the singer with aggravated criminal sexual assault and that 4 of the alleged victims that had come forward had been underage. There are further investigations currently taking place and it is possible the singer may face additional scrutiny in the coming days.

In the CBS interview, R. Kelly also said that the “Surviving R. Kelly” film made about him was “describing Lucifer. I’m Not Lucifer. I’m a man. I make mistakes.” When King began to read out the names of his accusers, R. Kelly responded by saying they were lying.

After surrendering himself to Chicago police in February following the allegations of sexual assault, the singer posted bail.

A number of videos reportedly incriminate the singer in a number of sexual acts with under-aged girls. R. Kelly has previously been arrested on charges as early as 2002.
