R. Kelly’s 2 girlfriends have been living at the singer’s Chicago home shows support in court to the embattled super star

Published

The two women whose parents fear have been “brainwashed” by R. Kelly have been living at the R&B singer’s Chicago home and walking his Pomeranian named “Believe” while he’s been in jail, Kelly’s lawyer told INSIDER.

Kelly appeared in a New York courtroom on Friday to be arraigned on new federal charges, including racketeering and violating federal trafficking laws.

Prosecutors allege that Kelly ran an elaborate enterprise to exploit women and young girls and coerce them into committing illegal sexual activity. Kelly pleaded not guilty to the charges on Friday, and his lawyer, Steve Greenberg, said his client will likely be transported back to a Chicago jail after the hearing.

Greenberg told INSIDER that Kelly’s two live-in girlfriends, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, also flew to New York to attend court in support of the embattled singer.

Kelly has been incarcerated in a Chicago jail since July 11, when he wasarrested on new federal sex-crime charges brought by prosecutors in Chicago. Altogether, Kelly is now facing both state charges and federal charges in Illinois, as well as federal charges in New York.

Clary and Savage’s parents have been outspoken about their fears that their daughters are being held against their will. The parents also took part in the Lifetime documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly,” which chronicled their failed efforts to bring the women back to their families.

The popular series also featured a number of women who accused Kelly of holding them in a “sex cult,” where he controlled aspects of their lives like how they dressed, when they ate, when they used the restroom, and whom they spoke to.

Greenberg said Clary and Savage are not being held in any such conditions, and have willingly lived at Kelly’s Chicago condo since his arrest last month.

Joycelyn Savage, left, and Azriel Clary, women who lived with R&B singer R. Kelly, depart the Dirksen Federal Courthouse after Kelly's hearing, Tuesday, July 16, 2019, in Chicago.

“Everyone’s like, ‘Oh they’re sex slaves.’ They came to bond court when he got arrested on the state charges, they came to bond court when he got arrested not he federal charges. I mean, these are not people who are being held hostage,” Greenberg said. “They have been out and about in the city of Chicago since he’s been locked up.”

Greenberg added that the women just visited him at his Chicago office last week, where he accompanied them on a walk with the singer’s dog.

“These are not people who have been chained to a post inside the place,” Greenberg said. “I was over at his condo dozens of times — there’s not buckets waiting for people to pee in. All of that is just so absurd.”

Clary and Savage have also spoken publicly about their relationship with Kelly, explaining the arrangement to CBS’s Gayle King in an interview in March.

“We both have our individual relationships with him, and we all are family all together,” Clary told King. “We have our moments where we sit and watch movies all together, we go to amusement parks all together.”

Cameroonian celebs hide in shame in the face of Damasus’ unsettling twitter tirades

Published

on

June 17th, 2019. Nigerian celebrity and right advocate Stella Damasus took to her platform of choice, twitter to join her voice among the growing list of celebs and diplomats to call for urgent attention to the Anglophone problem rocking Nigeria’s neighbor “I am not really interested in talking about the soccer match right now. We need to talk about the situation in Cameroon. The country needs help. Have you seen videos of women and babies being killed? I don’t understand how this is okay?”

In a span of 6 hours, the popular award winning actress tweeted 7 times about the Anglophone crisis, calling killings a “genocide” and questions why the conflict is not generating the desired attention

A spasm of social media by her own standard. A….well, you get the idea. It was a lot, sparking social media debate about what really caused the Twitter tirades back in Cameroon

This is not the first time she is adding her voice to issues of continental ramifications or even the world at large.

From Sudan to Mozambique, UK to Cameroon the US-based actress seems obsessed with her desire for a better Africa and rightly so considering her humble upbringing. Her twitter outings have been warmly received by the Anglophone community in Cameroon, a people who feel abandoned by their own Politicians and forgotten by their own celebs that have refused to use their voice to bring change when social responsibility come calling.

Cameroonian celebrities on the large part have betrayed the people, maintaining unforgivable silence in the face of atrocities in their own country. Many have come under the sword for failing to use their influence to speak out and force Yaoundé to find an urgent and lasting solution to a crisis which has killed many. Damasus describe the killings in Anglophone Cameroon as “genocide” and called on anybody who uses social media to add their voices.

But while her hasty conclusion and characterization about the former might be easily forgiven, the killings which are ongoing in the Anglophone regions are alarming and begging for international recognition and intervention. Four months old toddlers have been shot by bullets at close range, patients burnt in hospital live, 70 years old burnt along with entire villages and many more disappeared through kidnappings and killings, it’s a kind of story reminiscent of a horror movie which is playing in Cameroon’s soil and shockingly ignored by mainstream media.

“I wonder why this #Cameroon issue does not have the kind of media coverage that it deserves” Stella weeps as she continues to tweet. Rights groups have held the government culpable for most of the crimes and blame Yaoundé for the worsening crisis.

But government insist they have acted professionally, denies any wrongdoing and puts the blame on the armed civilian fighters whom they say wants to destabilize Cameroon. The results have been no school for about three years, daily fighting in villages and towns in the affected regions and hundreds of thousands displaced in and out of the country with Nigeria thousands of refugees.

By taking fellow celebrities to the task, the Nigerian entertainer has demonstrated the role of celebrity in the face of such brutality, given Cameroonian superstars a textbook example on how to add their voices in the face of adversity Cameroonian celebrities need to wake up and the time is now
