R. Kelly blames parents for ‘selling’ daughters to him
R. Kelly exploded with rage as he vehemently denied sexually abusing underage girls in a new interview aired Wednesday — and blamed the parents of the alleged victims for “selling” their daughters to him.
The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer flew off the handle in his 80-minute sit-down with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King, prompting the cameras to stop rolling at one point.
“Thirty years of my career! Y’all trying to kill me!” Kelly bellowed as he stood up, pounded his chest and pointed directly at the camera. “This is not about music! I’m trying to have a relationship with my kids and I can’t do it! You just don’t want to believe the truth! You don’t want to believe it!”
