R Kelly Breaks Down During Shock First Interview Since Sexual Abuse Arrest

Through it all, King stayed cool and never lost her composure. Mr Kelly stands next to her with his hand in the air, in the middle of speaking. "I've been hearing things and seeing things on the blogs".

King asked how all of these women could come up with similar stories about him, and he blamed "the power of social media".

"So what I was really thinking to myself was: I'm not done with this interview, so I'm going to let him have his moment".

The renewed scrutiny on Kelly was driven in large part by the Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly".

On "CBS This Morning", King said she had asked if the singer needed a break, but he said he just wanted to talk. "I was more anxious that he was going to get up and leave", she explained. I have been buried alive.

As the line of questioning continued, Kelly became more and more heated until he responded directly to the camera.

"I gave you all 30 years of my career!" "What I saw was a man that needs help". This is not about music! Y'all killing me with this shit! And I can't do it!

"I'm just telling the truth", he told King. "You guys [the media] believe some facade our parents are saying". He pleaded not guilty of all charges before being released from jail on February 25.

Later in the week, CBS will air King's interview with two of Kelly's much-younger live-in girlfriends, whose parents claim the singer has brainwashed their daughters.

"Do you still sit here and say that you have never been with underage girls?"

Some pointed out that King was sitting in for women and girls who didn't have the power to confront Kelly. King said. "That defies logic to me".

"Absolutely they're lying on me", Kelly told Gayle King.

Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008 that centered on a graphic video that prosecutors said showed him having sex with a girl as young as 13. "When you beat something, you beat it. When you beat your case, you beat your case".

In an angry fit, the washed up singer said he knows nothing about being behind a cult that enslaved women and trapped them in his balcony.

The meltdown brought back awful memories for Asante McGee, one of the singer's accusers who appeared in "Surviving R. Kelly".

One person suggested that Justice Kavanaugh's emotional display was "seen as righteous outrage", while R Kelly's was perceived as "abusive anger".

Kelly insisted that he didn't have sex with either woman while they were minors.

"Not true. Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true", Kelly said. King asked. After a few seconds of defending himself, Kelly completely lost it.

"That's stupid, use your common sense", he adds. This is not me! "I'm fighting for my (expletive) life!"

Kelly is now out on bail and, in the interview with CBS This Morning's King, it was the first time the world had seen him since he posted bail.
