Kelly Arrested for Failure to Pay Child Support

King also sat down with two young women now living with Kelly, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage in an interview that will air Thursday on CBS This Morning.

The pair, Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23, live with Kelly and said they are in a relationship with him.

CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan joined CBSN from outside the jail in Chicago where Kelly is being held for unpaid child support. He pleaded not guilty. During his interview on "CBS This Morning", he became quite emotional when talking about his children. He now reportedly owes $194,000, and was ordered to pay $161,663 to his ex-wife or risk jail time.

Kelly was indicted last month on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse - a class 2 felony - involving four alleged victims.

She denied that she had sex with Kelly when she was 17, something Kelly also said he "absolutely" did not do, "although her parents wanted [her] to".

"I'm very exhausted of all of the lies", Kelly said.

"At no point have the Savages requested any money from Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly, they have never received any money from Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly, they don't want any money from Robert Sylvester Kelly", Griggs said.

"In my history as a prosecutor, I loved it when a defendant would say things or make comments about his or her defense", said Illinois Appellate Judge Joseph Birkett, who said he did not watch the Kelly interview and was speaking only as a former prosecutor.

Experts said Kelly's appearance was also risky and could backfire if it gives prosecutors more information to use against him at trial.

As King spoke about the interview with her colleagues on CBS This Morning, she revealed that Kelly was nearby when she spoke to spoke to Savage and Clary, and that he kept coughing "very loudly" from around the corner in an apparent effort to alert them of his presence. Kelly repeatedly denies those charges, telling King in an exchange shown on air Wednesday morning, "I don't even really know what a cult is", the singer said.

"I'm very exhausted of all of the lies", Kelly said.

He was jailed, but released after a friend posted $100,000 bail. The special, Surviving R. Kelly, featured the R&B singer's ex-wife along with other women who described R. Kelly as one who preyed on young girls and women who were hoping to get their big break in the music industry. Kelly's next hearing in the child support case is on March 13 and his next court date on the sex abuse charges is March 22. "I have been buried alive", added the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer.
