Jocelyn Savage (or someone pretending to be her) appears to have turned on her longtime boyfriend R. Kelly. Jocelyn is selling her story now that the troubled singer is locked up with no chance of getting out in the foreseeable future.

In multiple interviews Jocelyn repeatedly defended Kelly after cops, acting on tips by parents, raided his Atlanta area home to conduct welfare checks on his harem.

Jocelyn and Kelly's other girlfriend, Azriel Clary, right, eventually moved with him back to Chicago. "I just mainly want to say that I am in a happy place with my life and I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that," Jocelyn said in an interview after the raid.

Jocelyn's parents accused Kelly of giving her STDs and isolating her from her family. In interviews, Jocelyn said her own father introduced her to the singer when she was 15. Her father allegedly urged her to live with Kelly at age 17 to further her singing career.

As a result of all the publicity generated by the parents, Chicago authorities arrested Kelly on multiple charges including sexual abuse and human trafficking.

Now broke and on her last leg, Jocelyn is willing to throw Kelly under the bus for a dollar.

Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg echoed the sentiments of many who say she is an opportunist looking for a quick payout.

"It is unfortunate that Jocelyn now seeks to make money by exploiting her long time, loving relationship with Robert," he said in a statement to Variety.com.

"Obviously if she were to tell the truth no one would pay so she has, unfortunately, chosen to regurgitate the stories and lies told by others for her own personal profit. We know the real facts, and it was not until the money ran out that she decided anything was wrong. Hopefully people will see it for the obvious profiteering it is."

R. Kelly fans let Jocelyn know that they won't support a freeloader who is capable of getting a job to support herself.

Some of her followers left comments saying Popeyes and Chic-fil-A are hiring.

"I just ran into him too and y'all ain't gonna put y'all motherf**king hands on him either!" the 42-year-old rapper added, before gesturing toward a giant inflatable rodent - a symbol of anti-union strikebreakers - on the back of a pickup truck.

Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, was arrested last November and later pleaded guilty to nine federal charges including racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and drugs trafficking.

In accordance with a plea deal that could set him free as early as next year, Hernandez turned government witness and testified against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang associates, ensuring he will be looking over his shoulders for the rest of his life.

His decision to name his fellow gang members sparked outrage among fellow rappers, including Snoop Dogg who labeled him a "snitch".

Tekashi is currently behind bars, as prosecutors fear for his safety. Jury deliberations in the trial began on Wednesday, WENN.com reports.

R. Kelly's lawyers filed court papers begging for his release from prison after his health deteriorated behind bars.

The R&B singer/songwriter is reportedly suffering from a hiatal hernia and his physical condition is deteriorating.

A hiatal hernia is an opening in the diaphragm that allows the abdominal organs to protrude through the diaphragm into the chest. The condition can be fatal if not treated by a surgeon.

Every prison has medical staff and psychiatric staffs to treat patients. But a hiatal hernia can not be treated in jail.

Lawyers for the jailed singer have filed new documents in an effort to get their client the medical help he needs behind bars.

In court documents, obtained by TMZ, the lawyers asked a judge to allow Kelly to be released on house arrest, where his physical condition would improve.

They also assured the judge that the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer will not intimidate witnesses if he is released and they insist he is not a flight risk, because he doesn't currently have access to his passport.

Kelly, 52, was arrested in Chicago earlier this year and charged with 18 new counts, including child sexual exploitation, child pornography production, kidnapping, forced labor, racketeering, and obstruction of justice.

He is also wanted on similar charges in New York and Minnesota.

In August, a Minnesota prosecutor charged Kelly with soliciting a minor and prostitution.

R. Kelly got his wish to be moved from solitary confinement to general population in an Illinois federal lockup.

The troubled singer/songwriter was arrested on July 11 and charged with child sex abuse, child p0rnography and obstruction of justice.

U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber granted Kelly's lawyer's request to move Kelly to general population at a federal jail.

Kelly had complained that he was bored and unfairly being held in solitary confinement.

But jail officials argued that Kelly previously refused to move to general population. They also noted that he had a cellmate for several weeks after initially refusing a cellmate.

Kelly's attorneys are still asking a judge to reconsider a ruling that he be held without bail until his trial next year.

Kelly's former live-in girlfriends Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23, are raising funds to hire high-powered attorney Tom Mesereau, who successfully defended Michael Jackson.

Kelly's current attorneys want him moved to a "secure facility" with Clary and Savage as his roommates.

His trial is scheduled for April 2020.

U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed his disappointment in Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven for not securing A$AP Rocky's immediate release from jail after the rapper was charged with assault on Thursday.

"Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Lofven for being unable to act," an outraged Trump tweeted on Thursday. "Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky".

Trump, who is not friends with Rocky, said officials should focus on "real crimes" in Sweden: "Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn't seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem!"

Trump previously assured his friends Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (pictured with Lil Kim and Rocky) that he would reach out to Swedish officials to secure his release.

But officials in Sweden apparently don't respect the U.S. president enough to release one of America's citizens.

Legal observers say the assault charge against Rocky was a "slap in the face" to Trump.

The new charge means the "Fashion Killa" will remain behind bars until his trial which is yet to be scheduled.

Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been held in jail for three weeks following his arrest after he was involved in a street fight with two Afghan migrants.

In a police interview, Rocky, 30, said the two men were high on drugs when they pursued him and his crew for blocks and hit his bodyguard over the head with a pair of headphones.

On Monday, a Swedish prosecutor said no charges would be filed against one of the migrants for assault because he acted in self-defense after he was allegedly attacked by Rocky and his crew.

According to WENN.com, on Thursday prosecutor Daniel Suneson said in a statement he had filed the counts against Rocky and two other members of his entourage after coming to the conclusion that "the events in question constitute a crime, despite claims of self-defense and provocation".

Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, was arrested on July 2, and is being held at the Kronoberg Detention Center, alongside his two associates.

Photos published by a Swedish newspaper this week shows the clean, bright dormitory-like atmosphere of the detention facility where Rocky and his crew are being detained. The photos conflict with the description given by the rapper's attorney who claimed Rocky lived in squalid conditions with barely enough food or water to survive a week.

Rocky could remain in a detention facility for months or even a year before his trial. He faces a maximum of 6 years in prison if convicted.
