His plea was emotional and eclectic with the person crying, screaming and firmly arguing that he is harmless. In a follow-up interview, Kelly’s alleged girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, spoke with Gayle King, defending the singer each step the best way.
During their joint dialog with King, Azriel Clary was extremely vocal about all that has occurred in the previous few years, alleging that her dad and mom are merely seeking to “rip-off” R.
