*R. Kelly’s girlfriend Joycelyn Savage is finally speaking out about the Patreon account that popped up online last week that she supposedly created, claiming it would reveal the disturbing details of her abusive relationship with the singer.
We previously reported, the paid account posted allegations about Kelly forcing her to have multiple abortions, swallowing his pee and choking her out for not calling him “daddy.”
Patreon ultimately removed the page after being unable to identify the account holder. Now Savage is addressing the matter, claiming the account was FAKE and that she’ would never betray R. Kelly.

As reported by The YBF, Joycelyn confirmed she did NOT create the Patreon account. She also claims she is not being abused or held against her will.
“He does not deserve this,” she said in the video as she read a “script” off of her cellphone. “I am not going to be part of the assignation of R. Kelly’s name, his music career or his character. How will we ever be able to get a fair trial anywhere in the world with all these lies that are being told on him? Please free him and let him come home in peace. I promise you he is not the person you guys think he is. He is the best thing that ever happened to me and Azriel [Clary].”
The 23-year-old added, “It’s just really, really, really sad that someone would pretend to be me and put it out in the world and say that I am a victim, that I am brainwashed, that I’m a sex slave. Lord have mercy, it doesn’t get worser [her words] than that.”
Joycelyn said she and Kelly’s other girlfriend, Azriel Clary, are still supporting the embattled artist at his court dates.

“We’re saddened and disappointed to learn that Joycelyn Savage has said that she was not the person operating the Patreon 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.”
“Although we can now verify that it wasn’t her account, the allegations still remain. 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, but there is no deception in this fact, for three years, Joycelyn’s family has spent the holidays without their daughter. They love her and long to embrace her once again.”
In related news, R. Kelly has been hit with a bribery charge for paying money to a public official back in 1994 to secure a fake ID for Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time, so she would be able to marry Kelly.
This latest allegation has been added to the racketeering charge against him in the Eastern District of New York.
According to federal docs obtained by TMZ, prosecutors say around Aug. 30, 1994, “Kelly and others paid money to a public official for “the creation of a fraudulent identification document for Jane Doe #1.” It’s been widely reported Kelly and Aaliyah’s wedding took place on Aug. 31,” the outlet writes.
According to prosecutors, that fake ID purchase constitutes bribery.
Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ they will review the indictment, but “at first look it does not appear to materially alter the landscape.” Kelly’s other attorney, Doug Anton, says “the charge is ridiculous and it smacks of the same desperation as the entire case.”
