AceShowbiz - Family of R. Kelly's girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage, has broken their silence after the girl released a video in which she denied making allegations against the singer on Patreon. Through a statement issued by the family's attorney, they expressed how disappointed they were to learn Joycelyn wasn't the one behind the account.
The statement read, "We're saddened and disappointed to learn that Joycelyn Savage has said that she was not the person operating the Patron account. We deeply desired to hear her story and in her own voice outside of the presence of Robert Sylvester Kelly or anyone associated with him. For nearly three years, Joycelyn Savage has not been able to speak outside of a controlled environment created by Mr. Kelly. Her video today was not any different."
Even though it turned out the Patreon account was operated by an impostor, that doesn't mean her family will stop believing that she has been abused by Kelly. In fact, they still think that the allegations are true as saying, "These are allegations that our own independent investigation found to be accurate and closely match the details listed in four indictments against Mr. Kelly. We are also concerned about who gained access to Joycelyn's personal Instagram account to mislead the public and her family."
The statement concluded, "But there is no deception in this, for three years, Joycelyn's family has spent the holidays without her daughter. They love her and long to embrace her once again."
Late last month, Joycelyn made headlines after someone who claimed to be her said on Patreon that she was a "victim" of his sexual and psychological abuse. The account was later shut down after the person behind it failed to verify her identity while people also called into question the legitimacy of the profile.
Joycelyn herself has denied ever making such claims on Patreon as she insisted she would never betray him and be a part of "assassination of R. Kelly's name, music career and his character." She said in a video, "It's just really really sad and I am just really heartbroken for all of this that's going on. ...We still support him, we still talk to him, we still see him."
