After portions of Gayle King's explosive interview with R. Kelly tore up Twitter on Wednesday, causing King to trend worldwide, CBS News announced Wednesday afternoon it will broadcast a one-hour primetime special showing even more of the interview at 8 p.m. Friday.

"First of all, I'm not here to talk about my personal life", Clary said. When asked by CBS' Gayle King about his financial situation, and reports that his income was estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars, Kelly quipped that it was "one rumor I wish was true".

There's a lot happening with Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage and it's only going to pick up steam.

Attorneys for both women's families say Kelly is controlling their daughters. She also expressed her disturbance with how Savage and Clary defended Kelly by parroting his denials of the allegations.

A lawyer representing the couple bristled at the allegation, saying Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage never asked for or received money from Kelly.

On Wednesday, the Savage family spoke to their daughter by phone in a conversation that was recorded on video and released on Facebook. The two have shared their belief that Joycelyn is "being held against her will" by Kelly.

"How could I pay child support if my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can't work?" he said.

Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari reported that Kelly was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon after a hearing on his child support debt.

R Kelly broke down in tears during his CBS interview with Gayle King. "Both our parents are basically out here trying to get money and scam 'cause they didn't agree on what happened", she said.

Kelly went on to tell King to "use your common sense", adding, "How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through - oh right, now I just think I have to be monster, and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!"

The special will include never-before-seen parts of that 80-minute sit-down with Kelly and of the interview with the two women living.

Three of Kelly's alleged victims in Chicago were under the age of 17 at the time of the abuse. Some charges involve underage girls, and some an alleged sex cult. He has pleaded not guilty.

Allegations have followed Kelly ever since it was revealed that, at 27, he illegally married his 15-year-old protegee Aaliyah.

"I actually never thought that", King began, "I thought I might get accidentally clobbered, but I didn't think that he would deliberately try to hurt me".
