R. Kelly has broken his silence, and the slander is going to be nuclear. The Pied Piper of Copping please sat for what’s being billed as an explosive interview with Gayle King.
The full video doesn’t air until tomorrow (March 6), but if the teaser dropped tonight is any indication, it’s going to be a doozy.
R’uh is basically maintaining that he never abused any underaged women and at one point said he is “fighting for my f*cking life.”
If you’ve ever seen the previous interviews where the R&B singer discussed his past allegations, you already his answers always leave much to be desired, and this one was no different. King clearly asked her questions and read the allegations, and that was enough to have Kelly bobbing and weaving and answering everything but the actual question.
Also, Gayle King post this pic on Instagram. It’s fittin’ to get crazy tomorrow.
Nevertheless, the short clip has already spawned a mountain of slander on Twitter. Deservedly so.
R. Kelly really said "I beat my case" instead of saying i'm not guilty then said you can't double jeopardy me— Ahmed🇸🇴/Official A&R for OVO Records (@big_business_) March 6, 2019

Gayle asked a clear question in that clip. And R. Kelly is just saying everything but an answer to her question.— deray (@deray) March 6, 2019
i don't care to hear any dismissal of CBS or Gayle King for interviewing R. Kelly and trying to dismiss it as simply celebrity tabloid news.— Ernest Owens (@MrErnestOwens) March 5, 2019
Black women matter and perhaps more ongoing coverage of his sexual abuse in the past would have protected more lives. #MuteRKelly pic.twitter.com/YnhxI2Ja7g

Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey are not playing around with sexual predators—period. They’re asking the right questions and holding no punches. https://t.co/ORYsQm6wP1— Evette Dionne (@freeblackgirl) March 6, 2019
