ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - The angry and emotional star claimed he would have to be ‘stupid’ to commit the crimes of which he is accused.
Hit singer R. Kelly broke down in tears, and raged and pleaded with fans to believe him in his first interview since his arrest for allegedly raping underaged girls.
“Quit playing, I didn’t do this stuff,” the pop singer begged into the camera as he sat with Gayle King of CBS News on Tuesday.
“This is not me. I’m fighting for my f*****g life.”
Photos posted by King on her instagram of the interview show an animated Kelly looming over her as he angrily waves his right arm, while an unidentified man attempts to restrain him by holding his left.
Throughout the interview Kelly pleaded his innocence saying, “Not true, whether they’re old rumours, new rumours, future rumours … Not true.”
