Steven Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, recently said Kelly has been struggling financially and the spent three days in jail after his arrest last month before he was able to raise the $100,000 required to secure his release on $1 million bail.

Interviews with the two women who live with Kelly will air Friday, including one woman whose parents say is being held against her will. Kelly suggested during the interview that the young woman's parents were in it for the money and put blame on them for his relationship with their daughter, saying they brought her to watch him perform when she was a teenager. During his interview on "CBS This Morning", he became quite emotional when talking about his children.

".He thought I was 18", Clary, 21, told Gayle King in a teaser for an interview that will be aired in more detail Thursday morning on CBS. "If you can't see that, you're ignorant and you're stupid".

R. Kelly is being accused of having sex with a girl her when she was 13 years old and eventually giving her herpes, a report said Wednesday. His reporting sparked the #MuteRKelly movement to end the singer's career and protests that helped lead to the cancellation of a performance Kelly had scheduled past year in Chicago.

But even Gayle King admitted her own mothering instincts nearly overrode her journalistic principles on Thursday when she felt the impulse to rescue Kelly's "girlfriends".

"I did worry at some points that he might accidentally hit me, because he was so angry that he was flailing", she said.

Attorney Gerald Griggs, who represents the Savage family, provided physical copies of receipts for flights and expenses to show the family never received money from Kelly. "This is not me", Kelly told King. The singer said he believes social media is to blame for fueling the allegations against him. One of those women, Azriel Clary, says Kelly did not know she was underage when they met.

"I just wanted to say - as a mother - get your things, let's go", she admitted afterward. And y'all trying to kill me?

"I'm very exhausted of all of the lies", Kelly said.

"We are aware of the allegations made against R. Kelly that possibly occurred in 2001".

Kelly said those lies include that he's holding women against their will and that he has a "cult". "I just kept thinking "Okay, Robert, go ahead" and that's what I said".

Kelly was charged last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse and has pleaded not guilty.

The alleged sexual abuse continued over the next four years, the woman claims. "The incident allegedly occurred in the City of Detroit when the victim was 13 years old".
