The charges – which he denies – come after a six-part documentary, Surviving R Kelly, which shone a spotlight on allegations of sexual misconduct against the 52-year-old Chicago native. The claims go back to the beginning of his career back in the 1990s, and it primarily focuses on his pursuit of teenage girls –after all, Kelly did marry the late Aaliyah when she was just 15 at a secret ceremony in Chicago.
Kelly who has been able to escape child ****ography charges –was also accused of running a *** ‘cult’ in which he had six women trapped. Since then, more alleged victims have been coming out.
Amid allegations, it was reported that he was in a relationship with both, Jocelyn Savage and Azriel Clary. Both women’s families believing their daughters to be ‘brainwashed’ –however, Savage and Clary have kept loyal to Kelly.

According to Azriel’s parents, R Kelly had promised to boost her music career. When she turned 18, Azriel stopped all contact with her parents. Some reports say the last time she spoke with her family was when she was 19.
Her family believes it was then that she became entangled in the “*** cult” ran by R Kelly. Her father Angelo, has been vocal about wanting their daughter back and accusing Kelly ‘brainwashing her’
In interviews, she has stated that she’s only been in a consensual relationship with R Kelly. Last month, she and Savage held each other’s hands as they walked through the courthouse for Kelly’s court hearing.
