Several sexual abuse allegations have been made against R. Kelly and he was charged last month.
R. Kelly denied sexual abuse allegations during an interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning.
After over two decades of allegations being made against the popular R&B singer, R. Kelly was charged last month with 10 counts of sexual abuse in Chicago, Illinois. The singer pleaded not guilty and is out on bail, but is slated to appear in court tomorrow.
During the interview, King confronted Kelly about allegations that he had assaulted underage girls, which Kelly vehemently denied. Kelly also addressed the condemnation he's received from artists, such as Lady Gaga, who he has worked with in the past.
At another point in the dramatic interview, Kelly said, "Stop it. You all quit playing! Quit playing! I didn't do this stuff! This is not me! I'm fighting for my fucking life!"
Despite allegations against Kelly being made for years, the documentary Surviving R. Kelly detailed several allegations further and once again brought them to the public eye.
