R. Kelly’s worries still rage on as new audio has surfaced that makes him appear as a liar. The Blast has uncovered audio where a man believed to be Kelly is speaking with a woman who is said to be Joycelyn, in 2015. Why is this an issue?
During R. Kelly’s infamous breakdown in his interview with Gayle King he made the statement about not getting with Joycelyn through the guise of becoming her mentor.
I’m not with her for her talent. When I saw her onstage nothing about her told me she sings… It’s cause she was beautiful.R Kelly
In the clip, Kelly was in a playful mood singing to Joycelyn, “Are you still on the phone?” Savage giggles and says yes. Then she asks him about her song “Don’t Hold Back,” a song that she wrote, inspired by Kelly’s own hit “Half on a Baby.” Savage asks him if he heard the similarities, and he says, “I noticed that all the way.”
R. Kelly appears to be her coach for the music industry as he assures her that he thinks she has potential, saying, “I love the song…Just needs some changes, a few different melody changes, changes to some lyrics. It needs to be doped up.” She replies, “I wanna work with you on that song,” and before the audio cuts out he says, “Yeah,” giving here hope at the big time.
This audio could become key evidence in the federal investigation of him as officials determine whether the singer is involved in a sex trafficking operation. Some believe that Kelly uses his status and the guise of helping mentor young female singers to entice them into his circle.
