R. Kelly Back in Custody Over Unpaid Child Support

In the explosive first interview since being charged with aggravated sexual abuse, the 52-year-old singer told King the accusations are not true.

"Well, both our parents, both our parents are basically out here trying to get money and scam, because they didn't agree on what happened, you know, with music or whatever it could be".

CBS said it interviewed Kelly for 80 minutes. The parents of the women say that their daughters have been brainwashed.

She emphasized, "There are people all over the world who have multiple girlfriends".

"I'm gonna name the names", King said to Kelly.

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

After over three decades in the journalism, Gayle King caught the attention of many on Wednesday after holding her composure while interviewing R. Kelly during his hard and freaky outburst.

Clary said her parents encouraged her to make "sexual videos" with Kelly when she was 17 so they could blackmail him.

"What kind of father, what kind of mother would sell their daughter to a man?"

He was arrested hours after his emotional interview with Gayle King aired on CBS This Morning and taken into custody on Wednesday following a hearing over unpaid child support, the Cook County Sheriff's Office confirmed to local media.

"I went to the National Domestic Violence Awareness Hotline, and there are 17 questions", Andrea Kelly said.

What is the child support case?

"All of the victims and parents can not be lying", they said.

CBS News also spoke to Kitti Jones, who said she dated Kelly from 2011 to 2013.

Kelly told CBS he has been in financial difficulties because "so many people" who had access to his bank account have stolen from him.

In short, they denied the allegations made against them.

Breaking down into tears, Clary continued: "I'm crying, because you guys don't know the truth! Why would I do that?" he said.

The parents deny ever receiving or even asking Kelly for money. "I immediately turned off the TV because, again, I felt like I was revisiting him yelling at me". He was whisked away directly after appearing in a Chicago courtroom to dispute his child support payments According to TMZ, Kelly will remain in jail until he pays his child support in full. "Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody", he asked. How can I work? how can I get paid?

In the statement, Griggs also mentioned that Kelly was also in the room during Clary and Savage's interview with Gayle King.

Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly also has previously accused the artist of domestic abuse.

But the dangers of such an interview might outweigh any benefits if Kelly locked himself into a particular defence, Thiagarajah said, adding: "He may not know all the evidence against him".

"I wouldn't look [my father] in the eye because he's a liar, he's a manipulative liar".

At another point in the dramatic interview, Kelly said, "Stop it".
