R. Kelly’s Ex-Girlfriend Speaks of Sexual Abuse in Latest Interview

Published

R. Kelly’s former girlfriend Azriel Clary has accused the singer of sexual and physical abuse against the singer.

Clary detailed how Kelly allegedly used blackmail to keep women under his control while assuring that they wouldn’t go to law enforcement with accusations against the singer.

“He has letters from people saying that they’ve been molested or touched by their parents or their brothers or a family member. He even has people on film molesting their younger nieces or younger brothers,” Clary claimed.

“And so I know a lot of women out there are too embarrassed, humiliated, and ashamed to come out because this man had that much power to control them, to make them molest their younger niece or to molest their younger brother. Personally had I ever done anything like that, I would be entirely too ashamed to come forward. Thankfully, I’ve never been in that situation. But have I seen it done to other women? Yes, I have.”

Clary also claimed that Kelly has “hundreds of victims out there,” as the singer allegedly had “girlfriends in every city.” “For the most part he blackmails everyone. He makes everyone do very degrading stuff, whether on film or writing it down, he makes them sign it Clary said.

Kelly’s lawyer Steve Greenberg responded to Clary’s claims in a series of tweets Thursday. “We are surprised to learn that Ms. Clary is making these allegations,” he wrote. “What she now says is directly contrary to truth, and the facts that have been brought forward by Ms. Clary in the past. It is also directly contrary to what we expect to be the proof.

Greenberg continued, “As with other ‘accusers,’ the lack of proof and their past actions impeach them. In sum, Ms. Clary had a long-term consensual relationship with Mr. Kelly. It continued after he was arrested, when she was free to do as she wished. It is clear that she now seeks to personally capitalize from their relationship, and the only way to do so is to parrot the false narrative. The allegations are not true. Still, Mr. Kelly bears only good will towards Ms. Clary.”

With Kelly pleading not guilty to federal charges in Brooklyn and Chicago as well as state charges in Illinois, Clary acknowledged that the singer has “no choice” but to maintain his innocence.
