R. Kelly’s girlfriend breaks down in tears as she defends star over child abuse allegations and slams ‘ignorant and stupid’ lies

Azriel Clary, 21, broke down in tears during the first TV interview since her family made public appeals for her to come home.

Appearing on CBS This Morning, along with R. Kelly’s other partner Joycelyn Savage, 23, she yelled: "I am crying because you guys don’t know the truth.

“You guys believe in some f*****g facade that our parents are saying for money and if you can't see that then you're ignorant and you're stupid!' she yelled while Joycelyn patted her back.”

Clary and Savage met Kelly, 52, as teenagers at concerts.

They have been living with him for the last several years. But during this time they have had no contact with their families.

Savage has spoken out once in the past to reject her parents' claim she was being kept hostage.

You guys believe in some f*****g facade that our parents are saying for money and if you can't see that then you're ignorant and you're stupid

Meanwhile R.Kelly appeared on CBS in a dramatic interview where he appeared to be physically restrained and yelled “I’m fighting for my f***ing life” as he furiously dismissed sex abuse claims in an emotional TV interview.

The R&B singer, 52, erupted with rage and insisted he's innocent of allegations he sexually abused four women, including three underage girls.

CBS interviewer Gayle King quizzed him on allegations he held young women captive during his first interview since his arrest last month.

'I'M FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE'

Kelly sobbed and looked directly at the camera as he said: “I don’t need to – why would I?

“How stupid would that be for R Kelly, with all I’ve been through in my past, to hold somebody.

“Use your common sense.”

He became more agitated and banged on his chest as he exploded: “Stop it, quit playing. I didn’t do this stuff. This is not me. I’m fighting for my f***ing life.”

King also shared images from the studio interview on Instagram, saying the singer had "lots to discuss".

One pictures appeared to show Kelly being held back by an unidentified man who was gripping his left arm.

In another part of the CBS interview, Gayle King asks Kelly: "Do you still sit here and say that you have never been with underage girls?"

The I Believe I Can Fly singer responds: "I'll sit here and say this – I had two cases back then that I said at the beginning of the interview that I would not talk about because of my ongoing case now.

“But, I will tell you this: people are going back to my past and they're trying to add all of this stuff now to that, to make all of the stuff that's going on now feel real to people."
