We can always count on R. Kelly to give us a gift that keeps on giving!!!
Gayle King tells The Oprah Magazine she never felt like she was in danger:
“I was never worried he was going to hurt me. I was more worried that he was going to get up and leave.”
During the now infamous interview, Kelly repeatedly punched his hand, hit his chest and at one point stood up to speak directly to the camera yelling:
“Quit playing, I didn’t do this stuff. This is not me. I’m fighting for my f—ing life.”
King however remained relaxed even as Kelly lashed out repeatedly:
King via O Magazine:
“I did worry at some points that he might accidentally hit me, because he was so angry that he was flailing. But I knew that I wasn’t in any real danger. I just kept thinking ‘Okay, Robert, go ahead’ and that’s what I said.”
It was also reported that producers and his publicist had to call for a break after Kelz couldn’t control his outbursts.
Gayle also told the mag she was advised Kelly was open to speaking about the accusations, but she wasn’t allowed to ask about the alleged relationship he had with the late singer Aaliyah or “the newest charges, because it’s an active court case.”
“But he was angry. He did get angry, as you saw during the interview. But then he kept saying ‘You said you wanted me to talk, let me talk.’ So I did.”
All this drama and the full interview didn’t even air in its entirety!!!!
The Phatgyrlsnoop senses are tingling…somehow there’s a feeling he won’t try Auntie “O” like that!
What’s your 2 cents?!
