Kelly's girlfriends say parents are lying for money

Savage's parents have accused R. Kelly of kidnapping their daughter, though she says she's living with the singer of her own free will.

Azriel Clary, left, and Joycelyn Savage, 23, are seen in February leaving the Leighton Criminal Courthouse in Chicago following R. Kelly's first court appearance on sexual abuse charges.

In a portion of the interview that aired Wednesday, Kelly alleged the young women's parents arranged for him to meet their daughters, sought money from him and threatened to ruin his career.

In the interview, Clary grew emotional and began to cry as she warned the public against their parents' allegations. Savage agreed, adding, "Everything that she says is true". Long before Kelly would famously face 14 counts of child pornography charges in 2008 (of which he was acquitted), the singer, then 27, secretly married Detroit native Aaliyah in 1994 when she was just 15 years old.

Clary went on to say that her parents would ask her to make sexually suggestive videos with the singer while she was still a minor so that they would blackmail him. The tweet said that Gayle King said Kelly coughed loudly throughout the Savage and Clary interview.

"We never "sold" our daughter to him or anyone else ..."

Kelly told a judge he could not pay $161,000 in back child support he owes to his ex-wife and mother of his three children, Andrea Kelly.

What is the child support case?

The series interviewed more than 50 people ranging from victims of Kelly's abuse, his ex-wife (who echoed the experiences of some of his teenage victims), as well as his personal staff, family members, and other individuals within his inner circle.

He has denied similar abuse allegations for decades.

Two women whose families have complained that Kelly is controlling them spoke to King about their relationship with the singer. I'm not disrespecting her by saying she's not telling the truth. "I'm fighting for my f***ing life!"

Interviews with Clary and Savage will air on Thursday morning. I never felt in danger talking to him. Today, R. Kelly is dealing with many legal issues and is in jail for over $160,000 in unpaid child support.

He said he told her that he makes mistakes and wasn't flawless before they got married.

The interview also became heated when King questioned the sexual nature of the Kelly's relationship with both Clary and Savage.

Several sexual abuse allegations have been made against R. Kelly and he was charged last month.

The pair went on to accuse their parents of being manipulative attention-seekers who wanted to extort money from R Kelly at their expense. "How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through-oh, right, now I just think I need to be monster and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!" "I've been hearing things and seeing things on all of the blogs and I'm just exhausted".
