The Gayle King Interview with R. Kelly BY GAYLE KING UPDATED ON: MARCH 9, 2019 / 12:33 PM / CBS NEWS
PERSONALLY, I have reservations about R.Kelly ESPECIALLY as he demonstrated on RECORDINGS, IN STUDIOS and in LIFE a Calous disrespect for REALITY! IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!! WHY NOW AFTER 10 YEARS????
Robert Kelly, 52, simply known as R. Kelly to millions of music fans, had a global audience, won three Grammy awards and sold some 75 million records. But now he is a mirror, reflecting a reckoning at the heart of the times we live in.
He is famous for the music he has given us. And he is infamous for allegations he sexually abused women for over two decades. Kelly vehemently denies those allegations.
The exclusive, explosive interview “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King had with him this week is part of a larger conversation America is right in the middle of. It has to do with violence, privilege and the rights of women. It has to do with the behavior of public figures.
