In an EXPLOSIVE interview recorded on Tuesday, the R&B king, R. Kelly spoke to Gayle King where he SLAMMED the allegations him as rumors and not true, things dug from the ”past.”
After being asked if R. Kelly has ever held any woman against his wish by the CBS This Morning host Kelly became very emotional are he reply the question:
“I don’t need to. Why would I?… How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I’ve been through in my way, way past to hold somebody, let alone four, five or six, 50 you said. How stupid would I be to do that?”
The singer continued:
“People are going back to my past — that’s exactly what they’re doing… They’re going back to the past, and they’re trying to add all of this stuff now to that, to make all of this stuff going now feel real to people.”
The 52-year-old even looked directly at the camera to plead his case.
“That’s stupid, guys. Is this camera on me? That’s stupid. 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 need to be a monster and hold girls against their will, 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.’ Stop it. Y’all quit playing. Quit playing. I didn’t do this stuff. This is not me. I’m fighting for my f**king life.’”
The sentencing carries each Class, 2 Felony is 3-7 years. That means if the ”I believe I can fly crooner” is convicted on all 10 counts, he could possibly do up-to 70 years in jail.
The bail condition include R. Kelly surrendering his passport, and not to have contact with anyone under the age of 18.
