Legendary Singer R. Kelly gave his first interview since being charged with sexual abuse last month.
In an explosive segment on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, the singer denied all of the accusations against him and tearfully told Gayle King, in an emotional outburst, “I’m fighting for my fucking life!”
Kelly vehemently denied the allegations.
When King asked the singer about his alleged sexual history with underaged girls, Kelly dismissed them as rumours: “Whether they’re old rumours, new rumours, future rumours, not true,” Kelly said.
Kelly became highly emotional when King continued to ask him questions about his accusers, exploding at the CBS host and her camera team when she brought up the allegations that he held women emotionally and physically hostage in his home.
“Use your common sense,” he yells directly at the camera. “This is not me. I’m fighting for my fucking life.”
