'SNL' Cold Open Had R. Kelly Fumbling Through Gayle King Interview

The singer lashed out over the renewed sexual assault claims and King managed to somehow remain calm throughout his tirade.

Kelly claimed that he's been unable to make payments because of his ex-wife's vendetta against him. How can I work? "If I can just get through this, everybody's going to love me again". How can I take care of my kids? How? "How?" he said through tears.

With Jay Morrison on Facebook, the Clarys shared their mixed feelings on the recent Lifetime documentary, Surviving R. Kelly. Sadly, like so many girls before them, Azriel and Joycelyn Savage have been manipulated and convinced by Kelly to protect him from serious criminal charges.

The singer also admitted that he has about $350,000 left to his name. He also said he couldn't pay child support because "so many people have been stealing my money". When King asks whether that three-way bond extends into the bedroom, Clary refuses to respond: "I would never share with anyone what I do in or outside of the bedroom", she snaps. "I'm talking about is it - is it a three-way sexual relationship between the three of you?" When asked what he would do if his daughter experienced the type of behavior he's accused of, Kelly said, "I would have to arrest myself after I did what I had to do". "He said he was here two days ago, and you wouldn't even look him in the eye", King said.

"Well, both of those", Clary said. According to him and wife Jonjelyn, they haven't seen their 23-year-old daughter in almost two and a half years, ever since she started dating Kelly.

For the past two decades, Kelly has been faced with allegations of sexually abusing underage women and keeping a "sex cult".

Azriel Clary's mother and father are Angelo and Alice Clary. Thompson as Kelly said that "people think he's some type of monster" and he wanted to do the interview to "remove all the doubt".

Azrial Clary and Joycelyn Savage admitted they met R. Kelly when they were just 17-years-old.

Ronn Torossian, a crisis management expert and CEO of 5W Public Relations, said King did a fantastic job speaking with Kelly in the almost 10-minute excerpt aired on "CBS This Morning".

"Not only he'd been acquitted of the charges, but I felt comfortable because at the time, I wish I didn't, but I separated the artist from the man", she said.

They believe that she was "reading from a prepared script" or that someone was there with her monitoring their call. She kept calling him "Robert", or the "individual who number ones"; he kept insisting that she call him "Victim". It seemed to startle her and Joycelyn paused for about 10 seconds and rushed off the phone soon after. In an interview on CBS on Friday morning, Timothy Savage spoke out against Kelly.

"My daughter was 98 pounds when she came home, but when she left to go with him- she was 120 pounds- so you do the math". The interview "brings the Gayle King brand to another level".
