On CBS, An Indicted R. Kelly Literally Screams His Innocence

  • ATLANTA GA- OCTOBER 26  R. Kelly and Halle Calhoun attend a Party at Amora Lounge

Singer R. Kelly has been taken back into custody and is expected to return to the Cook County Jail this evening, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office in Chicago. "He's in our custody", said Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office.

Kelly spent three nights in jail last month after being arrested on the criminal sex abuse charges. The money was put forth by a female fan who met him on a Lake Michigan cruise last fall.

A 23-year-old woman described by R. Kelly as one of his girlfriends has told her family that she is "happy" with the embattled R&B artist.

Kelly is charged with having sexually abused four other women years ago, including three who were underage at the time. His next court date is scheduled for March 13.

At one point during the interview, Kelly angrily stands up and starts pacing, his voice breaking as he yells, "I didn't to this stuff!"

"[I did] lots of things wrong when it comes to women but I apologized in those relationships", Kelly said.

CBS says King also spoke directly to both Savage and Clary and will air conversations with them on Friday morning.

The interview was his first public defense since being charged and the first time he addressed allegations in the Lifetime series "Surviving R. Kelly", which aired in January.

He broke down in tears as he hit his hands together and says, "I'm fighting for my (expletive) life".

Bilateral Trade Talks To End Trade War Between China And The US
Trump then postponed increases in U.S. tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods that had been set to rise from March 1. A person who knows about the agreement said that China wants all of Trump's tariffs to be eliminated.

Kim Jong-un back in Pyongyang after Vietnam trip
North Korea has restored part of a missile launch site it began to dismantle after pledging to do so in a first summit with U.S. The maneuvers have been a perennial target of North Korean fury - condemned by Pyongyang as provocative rehearsals for war.

Michael Jackson's estate posts live concert footage during 'Leaving Neverland' TV premiere
When he was queried about his change of position between 2005 and 2013, Robson responded, "I did not believe that I was forced". He'd come over and we'd spend the day shopping or hang out, or he'd come over and he'd spend the night.

Kelly was taken into custody on Wednesday in Chicago during a child support hearing. He denied doing anything against their will.

Savage's family has long explained she's been brainwashed and held captive by Kelly, a claim he and Joycelyn Savage deny.

'At no point did this family sell their daughter to anyone or provide their daughter for anything for money, ' attorney Gerald Griggs said Wednesday during a news conference. Joycelyn went to an R. Kelly concert in 2015 and later he flew her to Palm Springs, California to discuss her possible music career.

CBS said it interviewed Kelly for 80 minutes.

The young woman also said she stopped speaking to her parents because they've been causing "problems in her life" by saying Kelly is keeping her hostage.

Although it's 100% evident, R. Kelly did not pay his way to freedom.

In the latest charges, prosecutors allege Kelly tried to force oral sex on his 24-year-old hairdresser in 2003 - while he was free on bond on the then-pending child pornography charges.

Supporters are working to get Kelly, 52, out of jail by next Wednesday, publicist Darrell Johnson told reporters at the Richard J. Daley Center.
