Azriel Clary, the former girlfriend and alleged victim of r&b singer R. Kelly, posted an emotional and lengthy apology to her family via her social media account.

The post begins, "it’s so easy for all of us to get so consumed in work, life, and just keeping up with society. glad to have this time to focus on self love, and healing with my family. 🌱 Family is everything, and more than anything I’m thankful my family and the world prayed for me and welcomed me with loving arms," she wrote.

Azriel continues, "I am now mature enough to put my pride to the side and apologize for all the humiliation and embarrassment I’ve put my family through.. please do not degrade victims.. people will kill for love if told to do so.. I’m just thankful my prior relationship never led to that extent. abuse is a real thing, physically, mentally, and verbally. be kind to others.. you never know what they may be going through. continue to thrive.🌙"

Azriel has been working hard in the studio on new music.
