R&B superstar R Kelly has broken his media silence during an interview with CBS News.
In an interview that lasted over an hour R Kelly, real name Robert Sylvester Kelly, said he was ‘tired of all the lies’.
Kelly also said, ‘I need help. I need somebody to help me not have a big heart because my heart is so big’ following an emotional outburst.
Speaking to Gayle King, R Kelly said, ‘I’m very tired of all the lies, I’ve been hearing and seeing things on the blogs.
‘That little girls trapped in the basement, helicopters over my house, handcuffing, starving people, I have a harem or cult. I don’t really know what a cult is but I know I don’t have one.
Kelly faces 10 counts of aggravated sexual assault committed on four victims, and had a bond set a $1,000,000 during a court hearing on the 25th of February.
He also told CBS, ‘They are lying on me.’
‘Lots of things wrong when it comes to women that I apologise. But I apologised for when I was in those relationships.
‘I have been assassinated, buried alive. But I’m alive.’
