Gayle King is being praised across the board for her poise during this whole R. Kelly media circus. The respected journalist also sat down with Azriel Clary and Jocelyn Savage, Kelly’s two live-in girlfriends who claim they aren’t brainwashed are staying him by their own will.
Azriel was extremely combative and disrespectful while Gayle questioned her about her relationship with Kelly. At one point she refused to answer personal questions despite agreeing to do the interview in the first place.
According to Azriel, her parents are trying to extort money from Kelly and threatened to leak sexual footage and photos of her if he didn’t pay up.
Black Twitter didn’t take kindly to Azriel’s disrespect and read her for filth.
Azriel Clary need her ass beat for talking to @GayleKing like that. That’s a whole grown woman with a career trying to HELP another Black Woman, a young one who’s lost. And you started off getting smart. Keep that same energy when R. Kelly gets sentenced. #RKellyInterview— ERIC (@EricUnedited) March 7, 2019

My last comment on this subject. Joycelyn Savage & Azriel Clary are both from a two-parent household. I wonder whose idea (amongst the parents) was it to suggest their daughter do business with R Kelly? I hope Gaile King can ask parents the tough questions. #rkellyinterview— Keianna Johnson (@KeiannaJohnsons) March 6, 2019
He really said he is fighting to have a relationship with his kids who he knows still love him. And that he has missed a lot of years of their life. Okayyyyy—so did the thought not ever cross his mind that that’s what Azriel and Joycelyn’s dads are also doing? #rkellyinterview pic.twitter.com/rBa5OgyrgX— chantelchavon (@chantelchavon) March 7, 2019
Azriel was very disrespectful to Aunt Gayle this morning. Her anger towards @gayleking is misdirected. I can tell the young ladies have been brainwashed. And hearing that #RKelly was present for their portion of the segment speaks volumes. He controls them. Sad! #rkellyinterview— Tracy Brown (@IAmTracyBrown) March 7, 2019
