He rambled about proposing to his ex-wife Andrea on a helicopter with a puppy and denied ever abusing her.

Kelly, who has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, was arrested Wednesday for not paying child support to his ex-wife Andrea. "If he doesn't send $20,000 to this bank account by Monday, oh, I'm gonna put everything out there, and then $10,000 after that, '" Clary said. "Didn't know what the hell was going on".

Aired on "CBS This Morning", the anchor remained composed as Kelly repeatedly punched his hand, hit his chest and at one point stood up to speak directly to the camera.

Kelly also disputed claims of repeated abuse made by his ex-wife in the Surviving R. Kelly documentary.

But when her sister came on the phone, Savage's tune changed.

"I was never anxious he was going to hurt me".

"I know 43 years old, bodies tight, they cool, I go out with them, I kick it with them", Kelly said. That is my kids' mother. I'm not disrespecting her. "I've been hearing things and seeing things on all of the blogs and I'm just exhausted". In addition, the singer says that Andrea has destroyed his name and made it hard for him to work.

"Sometime last month we received information from the Chicago Police Department of a possible victim that was allegedly sexually assaulted by R. Kelly sometime I believe in 2001", said Detroit Police Chief James Craig. "I gave you 30 years of my f-ing career!" Quit playing! I didn't do this stuff!

Kelly talked about his finances and his relationship with two young women whose families say are being controlled by singer. "You guys don't know the truth!"

The two girlfriends of accused sexual abuser R. Kelly defended the R&B singer in an interview with CBS's Gayle King that aired Thursday, one day after the network released King's shocking interview with a belligerent Kelly. Savage and Clary told King that they love and are in a "very strong relationship" with Kelly.

"We both have our individual relationships with him and we all are a family, all together", Clary said.

The victim said she and Kelly had sex again a few weeks later at a Detroit recording studio.

The charges relate to four victims, with three of them being underage.

"How can I pay child support? How?" Both sets of parents have publicly denied ever asking or receiving money from R. Kelly.

As Kelly was being held in the Cook County Jail Thursday morning - his second stay in the sprawling Little Village complex in less than a month - his publicist, Darrell Johnson, was meeting with Kelly's attorney at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse in the Loop.

If you watched R. Kelly's eruptive interview with Gayle King on Wednesday and were amazed by her cool composure you weren't alone. Though he was "around the corner" and the interviewees couldn't see him, King noted that he would "cough very loudly, so they were aware that he was there".
