In an interview with Gayle King on CBS News, R. Kelly ranted and raved, declared his innocence and actually had to be physically restrained at one point.
Charged with raping underage girls, the rapper tearfully shouted at Gaye King:
‘Quit playing, I didn’t do this stuff.
‘This is not me. I’m fighting for my f*****g life.’
King posted the photo above on her Instagram showing the moment when R. Kelly was held back by an unidentified male.
Kelly told CBS News that the allegations he forced underage girls to have sex with him were false.
‘Not true, whether they’re old rumors, new rumors, future rumors…Not true,’ Kelly said.
Though the singer was acquitted of the 2008 child pornography charges, he’s now under investigation after a videotape surfaced that allegedly shows Kelly with a 14-year-old girl. Let’s just say he wasn’t helping her with her homework.
On February 22 the rapper was officially charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four victims, three of whom were underage at the time the alleged crimes were committed.
If convicted, he could face a maximum prison sentence of 70 years – 7 years for each count.
