R. KELLY INTERVIEW
While Joycelyn Savage is known to the world, mostly from her Gayle King interview, the Jane Doe 5's identity has been kept a secret.
She was allegedly sexually abused by Kelly when she was underage in 2015 and Kelly is accused of making child pornography of her, as well as not telling that he had herpes while committing the statutory rape of her.
The judge ruled there was no conflict of interest but Kelly has a history of witness tampering, according to several witness reports. His new York trial starts in August and his Chicago trial starts in September.
