PART THREE OF R KELLY’S SIT DOWN WITH GAYLE KING
Word On the Curb is R. Kelly lying through his teeth when he says he’s trying to have a relationship with his children, because he’s had a chance to for years and ignored it.
Sources are calling BS on his antics in the interview, particularly the part of about “trying to have a relationship with my kids.” They say he hasn’t tried to reach out to his 3 children since 2017. He went ballistic during his interview and at one point screamed he was only trying to repair ties with his kids and didn’t care about his career. Yet he changed his number and never gave it to Drea.
R Kelly’s daughter, Buku Abi, also says in an Instagram post that she and her siblings have been estranged from their father for years and called him a monster, which he says the kids have been brainwashed by Drea. Well we do know is he hasn’t financially supported his kids… which is why he was arrested again yesterday (Wednesday). He appeared before the judge and offered to give $50K with a payment plan option … but it didn’t fly.
So he will remain in jail until he pays the $161K owed in back child support.
