R. Kelly has spoken.
The singer, who pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse last month, has spoken out for the first time about the charges he's facing and the various misconduct allegations waged against him in recent years in a sit-down interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King.
After sharing teaser clips on Tuesday night, the network aired the first few portions of the lengthy conversation on Wednesday morning. The interview has not gone unnoticed by the public as the three-time Grammy winner grew emotional during the interview, eventually raising his voice and breaking down in tears as he denied the claims about him. "This is not me! I'm fighting for my f--king life!" he said directly into the camera.
