Joycelyn Savage had been very publicly vocal speaking on Kelly’s behalf in the heat of the ‘allegations’, speaking out on his behalf in a widely publicised CBS interview in March and in two others with TMZ, as well as showing up to support him during various court appearances.

Savage had in time past admitted publicly to be “absolutely in love” with the RnB singer and agreed to have entered the relationship of her own volition. She even called out to her own parents- who were against the relationship and of the opinion that Kelly had indoctrinated their daughter- and mentioned that they were trying to exploit the singer. In March, Kelly and Savage in separate interviews.

She said she had “a very strong relationship” with Kelly, and that she “absolutely” was in love with him. “Our parents are basically out here just to get money,” she said. “Because they didn‘t agree on what happened with music or whatever it could be. They’re very upset.”

In a twist of events, on the crowdfunding website Patreon, a woman claiming to be Joycelyn Savage described the singer as “controlling” and “abusive” and saying she is also a victim-turned-survivor.

Savage wrote that she first met Kelly when she was 19 years old at a concert. She had dreams of becoming a singer.

She added that Kelly flew her to his studio in California and Kelly allegedly began to make promises that he would turn her into a star like his former wife, the late singer Aaliyah. “He was going to help me pursue my dreams, and to become a model/singer,” she wrote, adding: “He would say it exactly like this ‘Baby girl you are going to be the next Aaliyah.'”

Savage alleged that within weeks of the start of their sexual relationship, he began demanding that she should refer to him as “Master” or “Daddy,” and that on one alleged occasion “around February 2016,” after she called him “babe” accidentally, she writes, “He grabbed me and choked me until I blacked out. I had bruises around my neck, and I was told by him to wear turtlenecks or a scarf to cover them up whenever he would take me out in public. I was frightened to tell anyone about this because of what he may do next. His assistant didn’t even care, and especially the other girls they were in for the money as well.”

According to reports, Savage alleged that Kelly forced her to have two abortions once in 2016, and again in 2018 and that at least one of the abortions was performed at Kelly’s home rather than at a clinic so that the news would not become public.

Savage also mentioned that she lacked privacy, “I didn’t have any type of privacy at all now that I think about it. If I showered one of his assistants would have to be by the door while I shower.”

She also revealed her limited relationship with her family. “I couldn‘t talk to my parents in private sometimes. I was told what to say on the phone to them.”

R. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg reacting to Savage’s emerging allegations said, “It is unfortunate that Jocelyn now seeks to make money by exploiting her long time, loving relationship with Robert. Obviously, if she were to tell the truth, no one would pay so she has, unfortunately, chosen to regurgitate the stories and lies told by others for her own personal profit. We know the real facts, and it was not until the money ran out that she decided anything was wrong. Hopefully, people will see it for the obvious profiteering it is.”

Many of Savage’s allegations are similar to those of other girls and women who have accused Kelly of abuse. Kelly has continually denied all accusations against him. The 52-year-old Kelly is currently facing 18 federal charges and separate sexual assault charges in Illinois, as well as multiple, ongoing civil lawsuits.
