R. Kelly to Gayle King on sexual abuse claims: “I have been assassinated”

R. Kelly Distraught in Interview, Sobbing, ‘I’m Fighting for my F***ing Life!’

R. Kelly Denies Sexual Abuse Allegations in “CBS This Morning” Interview

There’s a lot to unpack from this morning’s R. Kelly interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning.

R. Kelly maintained his innocence in the wake of 10 counts over aggravated sexual abuse.

At one point, Kelly got out of his chair and began screaming at the camera. King maintained her composure. She said the interview had to be paused so Kelly could compose himself.

The entire conversation is 80-minutes long. Only a portion was shown. CBS This Morning will air more of it on Thursday.

There are a lot of layers to the interview. Clips and more quotes are inside the story link.

After seeing the interview, are you swayed more in either way when it comes to innocence or guilt?

Tune in to “CBS This Morning” on Thursday for more with R. Kelly and on Friday to hear from the two women, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, who live with the R&B star and deny they are being held against their will. (via CBS)

Kelly’s next court date is March 22nd.
