'I’m Not a Devil!' R. Kelly’s Explosive Interview with Gayle King

Gayle King is drawing attention for her interviewing skills just as she negotiates a new contract with CBS News

When Kelly claimed early on that all of his accusers are lying, King tallied the multiple details on which all of them agree.

"I love them. It's like, they're my girlfriends", Kelly said. I have been buried alive. The 52-year-old is facing 70 years in prison after being indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse on February 22.

But now, due to increased pressure on the star prompted by an explosive documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, and the 10 counts of aggravated abuse that have been laid against him by police, he has been forced to break his silence, appearing on the CBS Good Morning Show.

"Do you still sit here and say that you have never been with underage girls?"

Dream Hampton told CBSN's Tanya Rivero that R. Kelly did what she described as a bad performance of Brett Kavanaugh, who faced allegations of sexual assault and was grilled during a hearing on Capitol Hill a year ago before his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kelly continued, "We can't double-jeopardy me like that".

"At no point did I think he was going to harm me", she said on CBS after the interview aired.

Kelly turned agitated when King asked if he had ever held anyone against their will. "This is not me".

That's when he started crying, saying, "I'm fighting for my [expletive] life". He insisted the past allegations were not relevant to the new accusations about his behavior with underage women. "When you beat something, you beat it", he said. Forget how you feel about me.

"You can't. It's not fair", the artist added.

Kylie Jenner becomes world’s youngest self-made billionaire
Kylie Cosmetics a year ago signed a deal with Ulta Beauty Inc to put her products in all of the retailer's 1,163 USA stores. Jeff Bezos , 55, founder of Amazon, kept the top spot in the magazine's annual list of the world's dollar billionaires.

Speaking to O, The Oprah Magazine, of which she serves as the editor-at-large, King opened up about her experience interviewing Kelly, noting that, despite his emotional state, she "was not scared".

"Not true! Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors... not true!" he said. Asked if he prefers younger women, Kelly replied: "I don't look at "much younger than me". That's exactly what they're doing.

"I sit here and say this: I had two cases back then that I said in the beginning of the interview that I would not talk about because of my ongoing case now", Kelly said in the interview, which will tomorrow morning, after being asked if he can "really say" he hasn't sexually engaged with minors.

Instead, the Savage's maintain R. Kelly, who admitted he is now in a relationship Joycelyn who is now 21-year-old, brainwashed their daughter and have prevented her family from having any contact with her.

The parents of one of the girls have claimed she is being held at his home against her will. King received praise from her colleagues for keeping her cool as she "remained tough and calm" throughout the experience, but Norah O'Donnell said she was "worried" about her when she "saw the pictures".

Inside Edition spoke to psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere to get his take on the moment in which Kelly became extremely emotional, yelling, screaming, jumping up from his seat and waving his arms inches from King's face. Versus wild ranting, "We need to have a conversation", she quietly said, asking,"What kind of help [do you need]?"

We'll bring you more of their interview, tomorrow only on @CBSThisMorning. "This is all f-- lies for money". "If you can't see that you're ignorant and you're stupid".

Remember when Baton Rouge gave R. Kelly a key to the city and the NAACP called him a 'hero?' "We have a relationship. I just look at 'legal.' I just look at, you (are) you, I'm me".

The attorney Michael Avenatti, who is representing Clary's parents, tweeted a statement on behalf of the family on Wednesday morning. "That there is a difference between R. Kelly the entertainer, and Robert Kelly the man". "It has been his modus operandi for decades and part of his abuse".
