Embattled American singer, R.Kelly, 52, who has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four alleged victims sat down with CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King for his first interview since his sexual assault charges. The interview is set to air Wednesday.
In a teaser for the interview that will air in full over two days starting Wednesday on “CBS This Morning,” Kelly said allegations he slept with underage girls are not true and a product of “people,” whom he did not identify specifically in the released clip, “going back to my past.”
“They’re going back to the past and they trying to add all of this stuff now to that, to make all of the stuff that’s going on now [feel] real to people,” he tells Gayle King.
At one point, Kelly points to straight to the camera and says it would be stupid of him to hold girls against their will.
“Use your common sense. … Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to; love me if you want. But just use your common sense,” he says, raising his voice. “How stupid would it be for me … with my crazy past and what I’ve been through?”
Kelly then appeared to begin crying as he said: “I didn’t do this stuff. This is not me. I’m fighting for my f****** life.”
Last month, the singer was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse a class 2 felony involving four alleged victims. If convicted, Kelly faces three to seven years in prison for each count.
