R. Kelly's fiancée Joycelyn Savage caused a buzz on Friday when she released a mini tell-all book claiming she was carrying his baby.
In her pamphlet, available on Amazon, the 26-year-old author claims she learned she was with child in June, a day after Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison for trafficking young women.
"I thought I had contracted Covid-19, but the most amazing news of all was that I was expecting," she wrote.
Kelly, 55, has been incarcerated for three years. Joycelyn didn't explain how she fell pregnant when he was never allowed conjugal visits in jail.
Joycelyn said she relayed the baby news to Kelly in jail. "Robert is extremely excited about the news that I am having a baby and feel sad that Robert will not be able to be here with us," she wrote.
Joycelyn was 19 when her family first met R. Kelly at an Atlanta Boutique owned by her mother, Jonjelyn Savage.
A few years later, they attempted to arrange an intervention with her because she had been skipping her college classes, Joycelyn's father, Tim Savage, told 11 Alive in 2019.
Joycelyn eventually dropped out of college and moved into Kelly's leased mansion near Atlanta. She soon cut ties with her heartbroken parents (pictured above).
Meanwhile, Kelly's attorney Jennifer Bonjean told TMZ that Joycelyn is "certainly not pregnant with R. Kelly's child."
Bonjean suggested that Joycelyn may be off her rocker.
She tells TMZ that some "people are just insane."
