In the aftermath of R. Kelly’s Chicago arrest, two women whose parents have claimed they have been brainwashed by the singer have come to the support of Kelly in a recently obtained video.
In the video obtained by TMZ, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary said that they have not been kicked out of Trump Tower in Chicago, where they have reportedly been living for years. Previous reports suggested they had been evicted after Kelly was arrested on federal child pornography charges in Chicago last week.
“We actually just read an article saying that we were evicted from The Trump… We just wanted to let you guys know that is not true,” Clary stated in the video.
They called the claims “fake news.”
“We want to say thank you to Robert’s fans. We see the support that you guys are showing him all over social media. … We are so thankful for the prayers, for the love, the support,” Clary continued.
Savage also claimed her parents know where she is. On Friday, Savage's father, Tim Savage, demanded to know where she was during a press conference held by Kelly spokesperson Darrell Johnson after his arrest.
“Where is my daughter? Answer that question!” Tim screamed in front of the cameras.
Johnson responded, "I have nothing to do with your daughter.”
Both Savage and Clary were named as victims of Kelly in the “Surviving R. Kelly” Lifetime TV docu-series, which accused the singer of repeatedly having sex with underage girls and being physically and emotionally abusive to young women and girls. Both Savage and Clary met the singer as minors.
The families of Savage and Clary maintain the girls are being held against their will.
Kelly, 52, was taken into custody on a 13-count indictment, which includes enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice, on Thursday in Chicago. Kelly has denied all wrongdoing.
