In the 2nd part of R. Kelly's interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, the singer said he is down to his last $350,000 in his bank account.

Kelly, who was previously arrested for aggravated sex abuse, sat down with King for his first interview since his arrest.

He was thrown back in jail on Wednesday while in court for a child support hearing.

In the second part of his interview, Kelly attempted to explain to King why he couldn't post bond or pay his ex-wife nearly $200,000 in child support.

"So many people have been stealing my money. People was connected to my account. I went by myself for the first time to a Bank of America. Didn’t know what I was doing, didn’t know what was going on … three weeks ago to a month," he told King.

Kelly said he was "tired of not knowing where my money was, where my publishing was."

He said a teller told him he had $350,000 in his account. He instructed her to open a new account and transfer the money into that account.

He claimed he didn't have access to those funds when he was arrested.

"How can I pay child support? How? If my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can't work. How can I work? how can I get paid? How can I take care of my kids? How?" he wailed to someone off camera.

He denied ex-wife Drea Kelly's claims that he once beat her and hogtied her on a bed.

"I flew in on a helicopter with a damn puppy and I proposed to Drea whom I was in love with and told her, 'Hey look I make mistakes I'm not perfect,'" the singer said, tears streaming down his face.

"What kind of woman would tear down a dad who's trying to have a relationship with their kids?"

    Okay. Pay your damned child support and you still got $140,000 left to pay your legal fees. Oh and while you're at it RRRaah save $100 for 2 greyhound bus tickets for your sister wives to go home. Once at home they need to seek professional help and get a damned real job. Burger King and WaWa are hiring.

  • Topic Influencer

    A whole ass word

  • Li-Wright

    Maybe he should cut those two free-loaders away? Anywho, he needs a forensic account who can find where the money went and where it's going. Then he needs a conservator.

  • A D N

    Well, he would have a lot more if he stopped paying people to be quiet.

  • DeeFromLA

    $350K? You didn't invest in anything? You don't own any property, or anything of value to liquidate? You don't have a watch sitting around with some diamonds in it? Maybe consider moving out of the Trump so you can pay your back child support. What a damn fool.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    No excuse. 15 years ago, I would understand it. But according to him, people stole from him early on in his career. Instead of chasing these young azz girls (legal and otherwise) he should have been focusing on his business. Smh. Pathetic.

  • Topic Influencer

    I have a theory that EVERY musical genius is crazy af or sick as hell

  • U gon learn today

    Ed Gordon R Kelly interview 2002: “Did you perform sex acts in video with a minor?

    R Kelly: “I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life but I’m not a monster”.

    Touré R Kelly interview 2008: “Do you date teenage girls?”

    R Kelly: “When you say teenager, how young are we talking?”

    Gayle King R Kelly interview 2019: “Do you still claim that you have never been with underage girls?”

    R Kelly: “People are trying to go back to my past but I beat my case! I beat it you can’t double-jeopardy me like that!”

    This idiot pretty much admits his guilt by avoiding pointed questions. He married Aaliyah when she was 15 and statutory raped a 14-year old, peed on her and recorded it on a VHS tape (ive seen the video). And we still got idiots out here defending him and calling his accusers liars.

  • SG

    All the songs he has penned for others and himself him and his kids should forever eat off of publishing and royalties alone. You can pen one hit song and you and your family can be straight for life. This is ridiculous. SMH

  • Rhyme and Reason

    At this point, we’ve known about R. Kelly for years!

    Now would love to read a forensic audit report to see who got the money, who currently owns each song in his catalog, up to the last music, he did for Whitney!

    I hope he can sue, and his kids can someday own his publishing for all they have been through!

  • tia

    He could be telling the truth. Then again, he been doing a whole lot of trickin' and paying folks off over the years too. So, he could be speaking facts. But still put nothing past folks tho...

  • Li-Wright

    Isn't it amazing that he stepped into a bank for the first time in his life just a couple of weeks ago? Like Oprah said, YOU SIGN THE CHECKS! Seems like he had some accountant(s) who were signing his checks. And notice, he don't have the same men with him in court that he did a few weeks ago. He probably fired everybody. Esp. after Greenberg said that RK was in financial trouble.

  • Li-Wright

    Time for him to read and write. Those girls should be trying to tutor him how to read.

  • Whirl

    My heart sinks in knowing about his illleracy which may have player a role in him blindly trusting others to his finances. It’s unfortunate that he couldn’t figure things out. The chances of turning out exactly the way he has were always high given his previous abuse. I can only image what type of household he was raised in given he grew up to be an illiterate adult. I would love to wake up one day and discover that the number of big brothers and big sisters grew exponentially overnight. Kids who grew up in households similar to his own need solid adults to take them under their wing before the streets do.

  • Dreamer

    My sentiments exactly. Acted like she cared so much for her daughter when she pimped her out for fame and money ?

    Was that after he paid his rent at Trump hotel?

  • Topic Influencer

    His ex wife Gladys Knight said he was a crook. And he stayed working for Kelz 5 years after the Kelz-Aaliyah annulment

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yeah, that statement was quite disturbing! Often, these accountants and money managers or investors come highly recommended with an elite clientele!

    Well, look at Kevin Garnet being taken for 77 million! How do they give people full access to their money accounts is beyond me!

    I guess no financial literacy, coupled with laziness, narcissism, and greed will do it!

  • Michelle Peele

    I purchased his book. Haven't finished reading it. Based on what he said he wanted to learn. But those around him including that teacher he talks about was pushing music. He wanted to sing with his brother but didn't known the lyrics to a song they were singing. And couldn't read the lyrics. His mom told him he had to learn to memorize lyrics. So there seemed to be no real emphasis on education; just entertainment

  • Dreamer

    Really? Wow. I’m not surprised. I always got a bad vibe from him but never knew any cold hard facts about him and his involvement with Aaliyah’s family, it’s just a vibe I feel. I’m a big Aaliyah fan but I was only 12 when she died so I didn’t find out a lot of the details regarding her and R. Pissy until recent years.

  • Whirl

    Any active father figure involved?

  • Ebony Starr

    Nothing. I guess they thought they we be together forever. They didn't think about how he was treating his own kids while they talked about why they don't talk to their parents. Just tragic all the way around.

  • Topic Influencer

    We shall see if that comes tumbling out as well

  • Michelle Peele

    Nah...he pretty much seemingly lived in a Whitehouse. There was a man in and out of his moms life. He talked about how people always came in and out of the house. Women were walking around scantily dressed. But they didn't do it when his mom was there. I honestly wondered if some of it was made up because it didn't seem real...

  • Dreamer

    I recently saw a video on YouTube from a blogger who claimed that she was told by members of R. Kelly’s family that he had threesomes with Aaliyah and her mother Diane. I don’t know how true or reliable that information is, tho.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Is that before or after you pay your child support? Because if you got money to take care of your 2 girlfriends, then you got enough money to take care of your kids. I don't have no pity or sympathy for these celebrities who had hundreds of millions of dollars and then lost it on dumb stuff like fortyleven cars, jewelry, clothes by designers that design black face, drugs, getting drunk, homies, side chicks, and anything else you want to add to the list. I don't care how much money you have or don't have, if those two women you keep in your basement eat, your kids should be eating.

  • Bonita

    He knows who that publishing money is going to, while he's playing dumb. I hope he gave Trump Towers his 30 day notice since his remaining funds are allocated to Andrea and Greenberg. Since y'all don't know what y'all wanna do with your lives Joycelyn and Azriel, y'all can develop some packing skills while daddy is locked up, and start boxing up his belongings.

    Similar to many states adopting drug courts rather than sending serial drug abusers to criminal cour, there needs to be a sex offender court so cases can be put into a more richer and fuller context and allow the accused to receive a sentence that will better help the accused to assimilate naturally back into society.

  • DeeFromLA

    Probably not. He has zero dollars. Pretty sure he owes the IRS too. If you ain't paying for your kids you probably not paying uncle sam either. That will be the next thing they get him with.

    They said Kelz worth at one time was 150 million dollas,now all he has is 350,000? Well if my math is correct you can still take 161,000 from 350,000. Nugga pay yo byke child support or stay in jail. Let me fine out Kellz runnin his illiterate as round town wiff a high school diploma.

Im not a Drea fan bc I refuse to believe she aint know. But far as money Im sure he fked up a lot of the money. She had to knock on closed doors in her own house. I'm sure her ability to reign in the money was limited. Its what abusers do. Make YOU financially dependent.

    They’re parents would welcome them with open arms, because they know that R.K has put all kinds of foolishness in their heads. The problem would be that they think they’ve been living a life of luxury and mom and dad have nothing to offer them.

    I wonder who the heck gave him that bad advice? His money should be loooooong!

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Bet she could count his money and read his contracts.

    True. The amount of money R should have made and kept, he could probably have lived off the interest alone. That is if he were smart.

  • Bonita

    Oh yeah, they're definitely going to let them come back home. And I think a lot of it will stem from guilt. Because their poor decision making as parents is what landed these girls in the situation they're in.

    It is beyond sad that people took his money, stole his publishing and betrayed him. He should've mad 50 to 75 percent minus administrative fees for all the songs he wrote. Instead someone tricked him into signing his money away. Anyone who did this you will suffer ten fold. But ! Robert you had a chance to change your ways after the first Aliyah situation. The light did not come on. You became worse an more defiant. The most highest has decided he has had enough of your antics. That is why this is happening. This is really sad.

    Savage may be able to be saved. Azriel unfortunately has issues. Almost killed herself at 14 over a boy. Yes there are “grown” children who still shouldn’t be messed with but then there are the Azriel’s. She is sopping up all he has told her. I believe that she thinks her parents sold her because Kelly told her so. Most men don’t even deal with drama or like dealing with baby daddies. I can’t imagine what man would want to deal with kidnapping, assault, sexual abuse, loss of reputation, damage to career AND slavery charges.

    Well there is trump.

    Kelly is a black male so that makes it worse. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/56b10a6ad1e18b327d85524d969ccb6c62435f808e3d43fd3277d8ca52586f50.gif

    Music minute: Contrary to popular belief people think publishing and catalogs gives the artist a constant cash flow, wrong. Michael Jackson got the most from radio play .25 cents other artists might get .03 cents I have a friend who co-wrote a big song and his royalty check one time I was around him was a whopping $3. I'm sorry but Dame Dash kept Jay-Z's first album and he's having financial problems of nobody plays your music you'll get a goose egg. When Michael bought The Beatles catalog lots of radio stations refused to play Beatles songs because they didn't want to pay him. For Kelly Aaliyah cost him a lot of his publishing and catalog Barry Hankerson got it! Exhale.

  • Disgustd

    I totally agree. He could have paid for therapy & counseling to deal with his own molestation and also could have gotten help with his dyslexia and reading problems..but nah..he chose to ramp up his reckless behavior. So I just don't feel one ounce of sympathy for him at this point.

  • Li-Wright
  • Li-Wright

    Right. There's a good Rolling Stones article about how artists make money and most of them make money by touring. If they're a big name they can get $100K+ for one concert night. Carrie Underwood gets $350K a night; Jennifer Hudson about 5 yrs ago received $155K a concert. This is why so many of these new artists want Las Vegas residencies vs. touring.
    Also they get paid with endorsements. Notice how many singers/celebs are doing commercials? That's a good $1Million + pay day.
    Royalty money is a slow drip.

    instead of looking for girls at the playground, he should've been taking some reading and comprehension classes so he can read the contracts he's been signing all these years. I agree with the other comment that someone as controlling as he is, is not going to know what's in his bank account and who has access to it, if he was giving people access to his money it was so they could pay for all the plane tickets to fly them young girls out and it not come from his hands, therefore giving him an out by being able to say he "wasn't aware" of what was going on. the parent's are to blame as well, I'm so tired of hearing that these girls were taking to the concerts to meet him and help them get a start in music, gtfoh, like he's the only guy that can help do that, I would've took my daughter to damn JD in Atlanta or Jay-Z, Diddy, anybody but a guy who is KNOWN or RUMORED to like young, under age girls.

    He needs to be judged in measure to the atrocities inflicted upon him in his youth that led to him evolving into the person he is today. Statistics tells us that if we subtract factors from his youth such as him being sexual assaulted and being raised in an environment which led to him being illiterate we would statistically be looking at a very different man. If we viewed his life story from a very different lense such as him being raised in an affluent area such as Reston, Virginia then statistically today we would be looking at a man with a four year degree minimum with a stable respectful job and family. We should not negate the factors which led to him getting to where he is today. We shouldn’t assume that his wealth would somehow solve all those deep seeded problems. That’s why we need a special court established for prior sex abuse criminals similar to many states adopting substance abuse courts so that drug addicts aren’t judged by the same measure as drug sellers. Erika Badu tried to break the ice on this topic. Understandably no one was ready to talk about it given how raw the topic is. I think the time is now to delve into the topic full force. Until we discuss how to effectively deal with sexual abuse criminals who themselves were sexually abused the chain of abuse will continue. Their judgement should include a sentence which includes an intense psychological approach in an attempt to detox pass undesirable learned traits.

    Yeah, he said that. Not sure I 100% believe him though.

  • Whirl

    Not “excused”. Rather judged in measure to the circumstances which got him into the position he is in today. It is to the benefit of society that he receives a sentence that includes a rigorous approach which includes psychological treatment otherwise we can expect to continue to see the trends we see in recidivism. The perpetrator gets out of jail only to commit the same crime again.

  • Topic Influencer

    Yes

  • WinterIsComing

    Naw! It benefits society to weed them out and keep the scum locked up behind bars to keep us safe. Sexual predators don’t need excuses to be let loose to terrorize folks. Sexual predators should be judged based on the crime they committed against humanity. They should spend life in prison. Sexual predators will offend again particularly when they think they can get away with it. There is no cure for it. Sexual crimes are severely underreported. Let the firing squad, Bubba or Old Sparky have them.

  • Topic Influencer

    Said he aint break any law. Idk tho. I question it too. From the root story in the Chicago Sun Times

    "I wondered if this statement might violate attorney/client privilege. But 1) Genson volunteered the information; 2) Kelly is no longer his client; and 3) attorney/client privilege doesn’t hold if a client is engaged in ongoing criminality or is perjuring himself. Both might be the case if Kelly is indeed found guilty."

  • Whirl

    He was so illiterate that his trusted friends were skimming off his money and helping themselves to his bank account? If this is true it’s heartbreaking. At some point during his 52 years of life someone should have taken him by the hand and guided him through the steps of managing a bank account. It doesn’t take much to balance a check book.

    You’d be surprised at how many adults have difficulty navigating their bank accounts. I was a part time retail banker while in school. The bank specialized in giving folks bank accounts that were in chex systems. From my experience, the majority of these account holders couldn’t read well or balance a check book.

    The cycle of poverty and sexual abuse that runs rampant in black families is overwhelming. So much so that I can’t bear to think about it at times.

We need experts in the field to step up and educate us on how to break these impoverished cycles. If I had an educational background I’d do it for free.

    Well, you could start with folks closest to you like family and friends. Find out if they’re willing to receive help, find out what their needs are and then connect them to resources.

I have teenagers that need summer jobs so I filled out the apps for a non-profit that connects teens with employment. Start close to home and then build your way out. You can’t save everyone.

    GIRL! Get out of my MIND. I promise I think this about her STILL

  • Ghost

    ??? me too! Been banking with them for years ??

  • Topic Influencer

    I tries. I hope you can find some resources to help like Winter was saying below. Its needed man.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Well having been molested by an older cousin, the feelings are all over the place. Then when you get older you understand differently. When Nia Riley said on Marriage Bootcamp that she didn’t realize until later that she had been molested I felt that deeply.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Oh well...minus that $160 you owe Drea leaves you with $190. Make the best of it.
    You can start by sending those girls back home...

  • ATL White Guy

    R Kelly's kids ages: 21, 19, 17. R Kelly's two concubines: 21, 23. So taking care of them financially for the last few years is more important than taking care of your kids? Pretty much same age group. Not sad for R Kelly, but pretty sad situation for the kids. And they have to live with the embarrassment of dad poppin off with two girls who could have shared juice boxes and gummy bears with them 15 years ago.

  • WinterIsComing

    ????? Woooooow. That’s crazy.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Glad you are stronger and wiser now. Continue to look up and see the Light.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Thank you. Much love to you.

  • Wreckognize Game

    He could have at least taken the kids to the amusement park with his girlfriends. Sorry MF’er.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Thinking the same thing...

  • Whirl

    (((Hugs))) thank you for sharing. I want to try to understand what’s what in its entirety not just the “end of the story” that we are seeing on the surface today. Looking at the situation it on the surface does little to help the 10 year old 2019 R Kelly of today being molested and about to grow up to be a 52 year old menace.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Me too I hate she not here

  • Coy little wink

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Aziirel has an attitude

  • Wreckognize Game

    If or when he is locked up, I wonder how they will live. I’m sure they will run up there every visiting day but who will they trust to take care of them. Azriel might make it at home with her family because she threw tantrums anyway. Joycelyn’s parents question her too much. She don’t want to be bothered.

  • Whirl

    What steps did you take to ensure you didn’t fall into the same cycle yourself? Did you have someone to provide you with guidance or anyone who took you under their wing. I was very fortunate in having someone take me under their wing.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Please give her a hug for me.
    The wyte & Jewish kids I went to school with were being taught to read the Stock page in 6th grade.
    There were usually only 1-2 other Black kids in the class. So I often felt alone.
    Now I am so grateful I was there.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Are u kidding me? This man is a haBYTCHual liar! He got extra money stashed somewhere. Carry on. He don’t want to pay nobody and u can feel sorry for him more if he broke. Bye nig

  • Crazy tee

    Instead of having his face in all that tail it should have been in those books which could have helped him manage his money better....

  • Lanegra??

    LORD that movie will make you mad.

  • justlooking

    So important, how to speak to creditors or not....I bet these young ladies have no credit identity.

    Are they getting a secondary education? Online something?

  • justlooking

    I cant stopped laughing at this.

  • WinterIsComing

    Pissed!

  • Wreckognize Game

    Nobody took me under their wing because the family didn’t talk about it. He went to jail for another crime so it stopped. I watched talk shows.

  • Wreckognize Game

    You’re welcome. Thanks for the Hug. I’m good

  • justlooking

    Her attitude is she ahhh itteeee

    She is so lost and confused. Believes her own lies. She gonna look back and be so ashamed. Wasting their lives on his elderly stank behind. At 21 I was in college, clubbing, dating and traveling. Not laid up with man older than my father watching movies and going to amusement parks. Waste of damn time.

  • Trace da Ace

    OK....so...lemme get this correct.....you have been in this game 30 years....made millions on millions of dollars.....but you NEVER inquired as to where the money was???? You may not be able to read or write or whatever...but you are not stone dumb. Stop acting like it. Stop blaming everybody else for your mess ups.....start accepting responsibility.....hold yourself accountable for your own actions!! You only have $350,000 in the bank....so how are you supporting yourself and the 2 chicks living with you??? How are they able to live lavishly in Dump towers....when you do not even support your kids??? Even to give $100 here and there would have been SOMETHING!! You gave nothing and left it up to Drea to raise your kids! Tell your 2 girlfriends to get a JOB....have you ever thought of that??? smdh...

  • Trace da Ace

    that last part....FACTS!

  • KcoolMuziq

    The R's baby mama is trash & not innocent in ALL of this.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I have a feeling he'll be flat broke before the end of the year, and those 2 "girlfriends" of his will end up leaving. Thing is, they've badmouthed their family so bad through all this that it'll be tough for them to go back home.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "Tell your 2 girlfriends to get a JOB"
    The depths of their love will become very clear... very quickly.

  • Renee26

    Yup...this one used Jordan's to lure his victims

  • Renee26

    I loooove this gif! ?

  • Trace da Ace

    exactly!! my thing is....what is everybody doing?? are they just shacked up laying around...watching movies and shit??? I don't get it.....

  • ClaireHuxtable

    The taste of humility is often bitter.

  • Renee26

    LMAO at the visual of the human litter box

  • Trace da Ace

    yep...pretty much....they are young, dumb and full of...well you get it....but once he either goes broke or gets locked up...they will bounce and become Instahoe models.....since that is the go-to career move now a days...smh

  • Renee26

    ??? thanks for the warning

    Note to self...just say no to Chicago niccas

  • Ni Ni

    Lmao

  • Ni Ni

    They'll probably find some other old, dirty coot to shack up with.

  • Ni Ni

    I don't care for Drea the least bit.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Nope, he got Life

    You said your mom was a Taurus as are you so it shouldn't be a surprise that your mom wanted you to learn how to handle money.

    You know it's all about the Benjamins for us Taureseans.

  • Marlika

    Right!!

  • garrisonville

    how would ya know? you've never had a black woman in your life. that's why you're talking so dumb. FOH fool

  • Applebootay

    So many ways ...legal ways to flip $350K....i can't feel sorry...if he hadn't bought realestate, started an LLC, started businesses to keep your money working for you...Here in Chicago he could've bought a whoke damn block of realestate..dumbazz

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins
  • ATL White Guy

    Does someone in his inner circle of 21 year olds need to explain to him that beating a case does not automatically mean you didn't do it?

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    so of he got 350k why dont he just send his kids 175k. i dont understand

  • jwoo250

    First I'd start by answering his question regarding "What kind of woman would tear down a dad who's trying to have a relationship with their kids?"

    A woman who was sick and damn tired of dealing with narcissistic abuse from her husband. I know what she went through because I married a narcissist and was in that same kind of relationship. I remember I use to make excuses for his behavior and my eyes saw the bad but my mind would say but he cooks for me sometimes and when he does come around he helps with the kids. That's why she still makes excuses for him. She messed up in the head from the abuse.

    Its so sad. Woman please know your worth don't settle for anything less. I couldn't drive or nothing so he had me. If you can drive and have money in your bank account get out.

  • ATL White Guy

    I think someone mentioned this the other day. But if not, who's tired of seeing the 600-lb guy with his legs spread open?

  • jwoo250

    Exactly he full of it. He got the rest in another bank account under someone elses name. They all do that. It's like when Master P tried to claim he was broke b/c he didn't want to pay child support for the 7 kids he gave his wife. Instead he took custody of them drove her crazy and than went back to flossing his money. Oh Lord I swear these men.

  • Topic Influencer

    God bless you hun

  • taurus_32

    Yup! I'm a Taurus and my 7 yr old is a Taurus. I'm so thankful she saves her money ?? but she also gives her 12 yr old brother money when he's spent his, he's a Sagittarius ? Sigh we have good hearts.

  • Whirl

    I love those words about women- “please know your worth”. So many have been brainwashed into thinking they are less than which allows a mate to only be required to put in a fraction of the effort he or she would have otherwise put in. Brainwashing is a cost savings.

  • wonderwoman

    Bull, R is not broke. He’s written a lot of other people’s songs. Publishing rights alone for those songs are good. Radio may not be playing his songs, but they are playing others songs. So, I don’t believe he is broke.

  • Whirl

    Yes Yes and Yes. I told someone recently-Do not duck the student loan people. Call them and work out a plan. They almost always will work out a plan. I had to basically tell the person if that person calls these people aren’t going to scream and yell at her. The person was genuinely afraid.

    Feel stupid as hell

  • Ghost

    Yep...definitely BURNING BRIDGES! as young and stupid as they are...they will definitely need to go HOME after this fiasco! the Savage girl was cool....but that other one said waaaaay too much!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No. Actually never heard of it.

  • Ghost

    Thank GOD for talk shows! Stay strong! Proud of you...

  • WinterIsComing

    On Netflix. Please watch it.

  • Ghost

    He's just gosh darn sorry! If he had handlers who cared...they would have ensured the monthly payment was made! That's part of the budget! He knew he had MINOR children...when my parents divorced they did not have a court ordered child support agreement...MY dad was a MAN and took care of his responsibilities regardless of his feelings toward my mother! I didn't worry about a thing! school clothes and functions paid for, allowance anything I needed...Helped me thru college...and he didn't have HALF the money the Kelly had excess too...This negro is a sad peace of work!

  • justlooking

    Defer, Derferment, postpone. Pay something rather than nothing.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Most 21 year old's don't have much of a skill set, leave them little girls alone.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    You really think he cares that his children are the same age as his girlfriends? I see this all the time from men going through mid-life crisis or are divorced/widowed. Men like them young. If he's 60 and she's 40, she could be his child also but we don't see it that way because both are so old.

  • Wreckognize Game

    The old school talk shows, Donahue, Ricki Lake, Geraldo, Sally J, Jenny Jones and Oprah. My azz is old. Thanks

  • Rayne

    That’s crazy cause I did. I worked all of Chicago summer jobs from 12-17. Then onto Mcdonald’s and Burger King.

  • Li-Wright

    He might have "assets" like houses, but who knows? it may be co-owned or have a large mortgage. He's "cash poor" for sure.

  • Sandra

    He signed over the rights to those songs because he can't read and was tricked into signing them over.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    I didn't know that working little summer jobs was considered a specific skill set. Also, it takes ZERO skill to work in fast food. My definition of a skill set is someone who has mastered something like accounting, not flipping burgers or being a lifeguard every summer.

  • JenJen Jen

    he is tearing down his own name with messing with them kids and teens

  • Rayne

    It’s not but working those lil jobs helped me learn to deal and talk with a wide range of ppl when I was young. That’s customer service . So idk what else ????

  • Liah

    Exactly!

  • Liah

    Exactly!...Because he’s lying and I think he thinks we are slow like his ass...And if you believe he’s broke I most definitely got a bridge to sell u?
    He need to shut up and sit down...Whoever told him to do this interview was setting him up!
    I truly believe he thinks he is going to beat this case....SMH....Idiot

  • Liah

    ????....

  • Karen Brady

    This

  • Dreamer

    I know right? Idk whether it’s true or not but I can believe it just off of how Diane Haughton went out of her way to disclaim the alleged victims in the “Surviving R. Kelly.” It’s like girl, simmer down. It’s clear and evident you failed your daughter Aaliyah or she never would’ve married Robert’s ass. ? A hit dog will holler ?

  • Dreamer

    God bless you, mama. ?

  • Dreamer

    Great observation.

  • Ebony Starr

    I'm from Chicago and I remember before Drea filled for divorce, her family called police and media to say that she was being held hostage. It was a big story. The news covered it every day. It was similar to what Azriel and Joycelyn's parents are doing. The police went to the house and Drea said that she was fine. The family insisted that she wasn't and she was being held against her. She couldn't call them, he isolated her. Kelly had the same reaction, "why would I... I'm surprised that this story never came out during all of this.

  • Grace Turner

    Shoot he still has more money then me!

  • RealATLPeach36

    Nee ??

  • Fodderwing

    ???

  • Fodderwing

    Agreed...and it’s an ironic point you have made (one that Wendy and Gayle have seemed to miss)...

    What exactly is/was his excuse for not using his resources to re-educate himself?? Sheet, I skripped so I could legit pay for college! It’s crazy bc with all the moves he made and opportunities he was provided...all he did was a backward hustle. He’s got less than where he started.

  • Kimocha

    Shouldn't he had already had a relationship with his kids??... The only question Gayle didn't ask that I wish she woulda is... Why does he call himself the Pied Piper?

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Just WOW!!!

  • HoneyHitchcock

    He has that I’m invincible, that would never happen attitude.

    No, he did not
