R. Kelly‘s 53rd birthday was on Wednesday (1/8/2020) and while he spent it in jail, his estranged girlfriends — Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary — came to blows at his Chicago home. Clary recorded the argument that led to blows on Instagram, where Savage is seen calling her “disrespectful” and “evil.”
Clary responded, saying she needs to protect herself before Savage walks towards her and they both begin fighting. Clary can also be heard saying, “Joy, you were sleeping with me as a minor” during the tussle.
Clary later recorded herself explaining the fight — presumably to police — claiming Savage attacked her in the residence — twice — after arriving with a woman named Kimberly, who Clary believes handles Kelly’s business affairs.
Kelly faces charges in federal courts in Brooklyn and Chicago — plus state charges out of Cook County, Illinois — on alleged crimes including racketeering, sexual exploitation of children and transporting women and girls across state lines for sex.
