Kelly Loses It In CBS Interview, Denies Accusations

One recent example was "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, who was charged with falsely reporting a racist, anti-gay attack in Chicago.

See more of his interview in the video below. In the photo, he's raising his right hand in an exacerbated manner.

His attorney, Steve Greenberg, has said his client is innocent.

"A lot of the public already thinks he's guilty, and there is a very negative image of him, so the only thing he might think he can do is try to change their minds", Thiagarajah said.

CBS News National Correspondent Jericka Duncan said on CBS Evening News on Tuesday the entire interview was about an hour and 20 minutes long. "He may not know all the evidence against him".

"They're going back to the past and they trying to add all of this stuff now to that, to make all of the stuff that's going on now [feel] real to people", he tells Gayle King. When Kelly claimed early on that all of his accusers are lying, King tallied the multiple details on which all of them agree.

In a follow-up tweet, Avenatti addressed the emotion that Kelly shows in the interview: "R. Kelly's tears are out of fear and despair".

"Quit playing. I didn't do this stuff, this is not me", he shouts, beating his chest, and using several profanities. "This is not me!" "I'm fighting for my f-cking life".

"I just knew that I was never in danger", she said.

As the line of questioning continued, Kelly became more and more heated until he responded directly to the camera. He also accused their parents, who have publicly expressed concern over their safety with Kelly, of being in it for the money. He said Kelly did not have the whole amount because he has not been able to work.

Kelly was just taken back into custody for unpaid back child support today and won't be released until he pays about $161,000. His next hearing was scheduled for March 13. The singer has maintained his innocence.

The full interview has yet to be released but from the snippets that have been circulating online, we can tell that it was a fiery and weird encounter. More of the interview is expected to air Thursday.

Interviews with the two women who live with Kelly will air Friday, including one woman whose parents say is being held against her will. Kelly suggested during the interview that the young woman's parents were in it for the money and put blame on them for his relationship with their daughter, saying they brought her to watch him perform when she was a teenager.

Both sets of parents have slammed Kelly, with the Savages accusing him of brainwashing their daughter. The controversial R&B singer angrily denied the allegations while speaking with King.

According to those reports, the star allegedly seduced a number of young women with the promise of helping them kickstart a music career, only to "groom" them into being his personal sex objects for whom he allegedly controlled every aspect of their lives.
