We assume you have heard the news that American artist R. Kelly was given a 30-year prison term on federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges.
You may find out more about the case and the singer’s fiancee by reading on.
Exactly what led to R. Kelly’s arrest?
In case you missed it, on Wednesday, June 29th, R. Kelly was given a 30-year prison term. Federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges have developed against him as he has allegedly utilised his fame and notoriety to lure in victims of his sexual abuse, as reported by the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York following his conviction last year.
Prosecutors asked the judge for a sentence of more than 25 years in prison; the rapper’s attorneys argued for a reduction in that sentence, arguing that it amounted to “tantamount to a life sentence.”
Joycelyn finally spoke up and explained her side of the situation.
Savage is finally speaking up about the years she spent justifying her relationship with R. Kelly. Joycelyn, one of the many lovers of the infamous R&B artist, remained stuck with him despite her claims that she was a victim of his abusive behaviour.
Savage revived her Instagram in 2019, where she announced she would share her experience working with R. Kelly via the subscription service Patreon.
She mentioned in her initial article that she was just 17 years old when she first encountered the musician. He encouraged her to pursue a career in music by saying that she had his blessing to do so. Aaliyah, he told her, would be replaced by her.
The young woman, at 24 years old, put all of her faith in R. Kelly, as Robert Sylvester Kelly, and she quit school to be with him. She detailed how “after these few of months Robert began giving me commands and made sure I call him by certain names.” Such as “Master” or “Daddy,” neither of which I particularly liked at the time.
Joycelyn elaborated, “If I wasn’t getting paid or chasing my passion I would’ve gone home, but all that didn’t stop just yet.
However, as time went on, he became increasingly angry whenever I didn’t address him by one of those two names. Since Robert was so authoritarian, whenever he called me, I had to respond with a “Yes, daddy” or “Please, daddy.”
After R. Kelly’s conviction and sentencing, Joycelyn’s loved ones made a public statement.
Joycelyn Savage’s family just made a public statement after Kelly’s sentence was handed down. The statement was issued by the Savages’ attorney, Gerald A. Griggs.
“The Parents of Joycelyn Savage are delighted with the sentence handed down by Judge Donnelly today,” the statement stated. They believe it will send a clear message that sexual predators will be held accountable for their criminal actions. They keep pining for the day when they can talk to their daughter again. Hopefully, Joycelyn will come back to the house now. And they’re relieved that the court listened to the survivors.
Former Kelly backup vocalist Jovante Cunningham applauds the verdict. She said, “I embarked on this path 30 years ago. My faith in the justice system coming through for Black and brown girls has been severely shaken up until this very moment.
I stand here very proud of my justice system, very proud of my fellow survivors, and very delighted with the verdict,” Cunningham concluded.
The following article contains vital information regarding Joycelyn Savage.
Joycelyn Savage has worked as a singer and model. Being romantically related to R. Kelly is what first brought her to the attention of the public. Having both Jonjelyn and Timothy as parents, she is their daughter. Jailyn Savage is the only sibling she has.
Her parents have previously accused Kelly of “brainwashing” their daughter. Savage quickly set the record straight and dismissed the rumours. ‘I’m not being indoctrinated or anything like that,’ she assured TMZ.
Kelly and Savage have not been seen together in public since 2018. On May 8th, 2018, the paps caught Kelly putting his hands on her while she shopped for sunglasses at a mall.
Kelly confirmed that he is engaged to longtime girlfriend Joycelyn
As to the reports of the New York Post, the Trapped in the Closet singer claimed that he is engaged to longterm lover Joycelyn Savage in a letter to a judge begging for compassion ahead of his sentencing.
Savage said she was not a victim of the singer and called the couple’s relationship “amazing.” She typed out a letter to Judge Ann Donnelly that stated, “My relationship with Robert is great.
He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. We share a unique bond and are madly in love with one another. I still support Robert to this day because I love him and will always be here to support him.”
Joycelyn further remarked, “Robert is not the monster that the government has represented him to be. My experience with Robert has been one of sweetness and kindness.
He has always made sure that I and any other woman he was with at the end of the day have everything we need. It hurts my heart that the government has made it seem like I’m the victim when in fact Robert and I have a strong and lasting love for one another.
The singer continued by saying, “I’m a grown woman and can speak for myself, which is why I wanted to present my letter to the court. Please take my comments into account while deciding Robert’s sentence. He’s a wonderful human being who needs to be with his loving family who are prepared to help him through this.
