In an interview with Gayle King on 'CBS This Morning' the music icon denied all the sexual abuse allegations and allegations that he manipulated women into staying with him in emotionally and physically abusive relationships leveled against him. 

“Hate me if you want to, love me if you want, But just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through — oh, right now I just think I need to be a monster, hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don’t let them eat, don’t let them out!" he said.

In the interview, R.Kelly gets all emotional, couldn't keep calm as he went on cursing and pleading on the camera. “I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me!” he said tearfully looking at the camera.

It would be recalled that R.Kelly was arrested and charged with a 10 count charge in February 2018 for sexual abuse involving a number of women. He was however granted bail after a bond of $100k was paid.

About a week ago, R.Kelly regained his freedom after he was able to post a 100k bail bond. The music icon was able to get bail after it was revealed that he'll have to pay off a 6-figure child support. 

TMZ also revealed that Kelly's $100k bond 10% of his $1 million bail was finally posted Monday, February 25, 2019, after he appeared in court and entered a not guilty to plea to all 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

It was also revealed that a small crowd gathered outside while the music icon walked away a free man, calling him names. Immediately after his bail, R.Kelly and his crew took a break immediately as they went on to have a quick lunch.
