Last week, R Kelly's estranged former girlfriend Joycelyn Savage came out - and claimed that she'd broken up with R Kelly, and the convicted pedophile an "abuser."
Saying it could not verify the writer’s identity, a website on Tuesday deleted posts in which a person claiming to be a longtime girlfriend of the singer R. Kelly accused him of years of emotional and physical abuse.
The account holder on the website Patreon claiming to be Joycelyn Savage posted lurid allegations against Mr. Kelly over the weekend, claims that were reminiscent of accusations that have been made against him by other women, in news reports and in the Lifetime documentary series, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Multiple news outlets, including The New York Times, reported on the posts this past weekend. But on Tuesday, after several online commenters raised questions about the authenticity of the posts, Patreon took them down.
“After multiple unsuccessful attempts to verify the identity of the account holder," Patreon said in a statement, “we closed the Patreon page allegedly associated with Joycelyn Savage due to potential impersonation.”
Well his other girlfriend Azriel is still riding with him.
Yesterday, the 22 year old Azriel Clairy popped up on social media. Her appearance, just days after the scandal surrounding Joycelyn Savage allegedly announced her split from R Kelly, is causing even more of a stir online.
Azriel promised to go live if she reached 50k followers on all her social media platforms and then confirmed she was till in touch with R. Kelly, telling one follower they had just gotten off the phone together.
She also - unlike Joycelyn Savage - refused to say anything bad about R Kelly. She told fans that the two were "on the run" together.
Here's her statement:
