SNL tackles R Kelly's unhinged interview with VERY patient Gayle King

  • R. Kelly Gloria Allred Child Sex Tape Press Conference

On the same day that Kelly's interview aired, he was arrested for failing to pay child support to ex-wife Andrea Kelly.

She told the Oprah Winfrey magazine: "I never thought he was going to hit me".

The singer's recent legal troubles have highlighted the fact that his finances are now "a mess", and he even claimed in a recent CBS interview that someone had been stealing from his bank accounts.

The pair discussed the allegations against Kelly in real life, as the artist is facing 10 counts of sexual abuse involved four women, three of whom were underage at the time.

After Kelly claimed all the women who came forward in Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docu-series were "lying on me", King asked how all of the women's accounts of his alleged abuse could be so similar. I'm here to remove all the doubt.

"I emailed Dana, who I don't know", King said. King exclaimed. "It was a 212 number that I didn't recognize, so I thought it was work... and he goes, 'Gayle, it's Elton here.' And I go, 'Elton John?!"

The problem with that scenario is that Kelly doesn't appear to have much money despite having earned millions for his enormous musical talent. They say they haven't seen her in person since 2016. But did I think he was going to hurt me? "Hats off to Gayle King for totally redeeming herself after the [Jussie] Smollett fiasco", he said.




"My lawyer was telling me no, but my ego.my ego was telling me yes", Kelly said.

At several points, Jori leans forward to say, "I love you", to her sister, and to ask her to come home. Throughout it, Kelly sort of speak-sings the story, generally in the same melody - though calling it such is a bit of a stretch.

The SNL version had Keenan Thompson as R. Kelly, being interviewed, for the third time, by Leslie Jones' King.

Michelle Kramer, the mother who rescued her daughter, Dominique Garner, in the riveting "Surviving R. Kelly" docu-series, called Kelly's interview a "circus act" and told CBS News that her daughter nearly threw the remote at the television as they sat and watched the interview.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀.

In light of the attention, CBS is planning to release a longer special that includes King's full-length interview with Kelly.

She said her main concern was keeping him in the room and talking because he has been known to storm out of interviews before. Kelly, whose attorney said at the time that the singer's finances were in disarray, then spent a weekend in jail before a 47-year-old suburban Chicago business owner posted his $100,000 bail. Kelly was acquitted on charges of child pornography in 2008. So, when I see Robert getting really upset, and he stands out of his seat, my initial reaction was: "'Oh God, please don't leave, please don't leave, '" reflected King, adding that she was determined to make eye contact with the 52-year-old.
