Two of R. Kelly's accusers are speaking out, following his explosive interview with Gayle King earlier this week.

"I could see him getting more heated, he was upset with me about some of the questions, that's ok, he was a little irritated, that's ok", said King. I'm trying to have a relationship with my kids!

Savage and Clary said they were both "absolutely" in love with Kelly and the pair said their families should not be concerned. "Negativity sells, gossip is what sells, rumours are what sell".

While the negotiations will remain sealed, King surely deserves more coin for her work and dedication to a hard industry where many Black women are ousted from holding anchor positions, especially during primetime news.

Kelly told King that Andrea Kelly, his former wife and the mother of his three children, was lying when she alleged on the Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" that he had abused her during their marriage.

CBS said it would air additional footage from the CBS interview on Wednesday and Thursday (local time). "All of the victims and parents can not be lying", they said.

"Lies", he said. He added that his money in the bank, which contained $350,000, was in the process of being transferred to another account at the time he was arrested in February. This airs in multiple parts on CBS This Morning.

According to CBS, "Kelly and the alleged victim first had sex at the Detroit hotel on December 30, 2001, The alleged victim said she and Kelly also had sex at a Detroit recording studio a few weeks later". Kelly has repeatedly denied all accusations.

"So many people have been stealing my money", he said.

"Because I was so exhausted of not knowing where my money was, where my publishing was", he continued. His two girlfriends, whose parents say have been "brainwashed" by Kelly, also defended him on-camera.

Gayle King was never "scared" during her interview with R. Kelly and was more concerned he would walk out than he'd lash out at her. On Wednesday afternoon, Kelly was back in jail in Chicago, this time over unpaid child support.

Last month, Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Chicago's Cook County.

Kelly's court hearing for his sexual abuse case is set for March 22.

Kelly has consistently denied any sexual misconduct and was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

A shocking CBS interview with R. Kelly's girlfriend Azriel Clary was aired and in it she revealed a lot of disturbing details. The latest clips to air on CBS This Morning saw Kelly talking about his financial situation, claiming he had $350,000 Dollars in his bank account, tried to put it in a new account in the last month and is still waiting for it to be processed - hence being unable to pay bail or child support.

In January, his eldest daughter, Joann Kelly, who goes by the name Buku Abi, posted on Instagram: "I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father's actions".
