Gayle King recently landed one of the biggest interviews of the year to date, with “embattled singer” R. Kelly. The R&B star sat down with the journalist on CBS This Morning to discuss his recent arrest on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
Oprah Winfrey took to social media to praise her longtime best friend for doing an excellent job and keeping her cool as Kelly became increasingly hysterical. Winfrey also echoed the sentiments of viewers who are ready to see the interview in its entirety.
“Bravo @GayleKing for calm and and steady focus during #RKelly interview. Outstanding job! Tell @CBSThisMorning we want to see the whole thing.”
Kelly flew into an emotional rage when addressing questions about claims that he’s holding multiple women against their will.
“How stupid would I be to do that? That’s stupid. … Y’all killing me with this sh*t. I gave y’all 30 years of my f*king career. Thirty years of my career, and y’all trying to kill me,” he screamed. Watch the clip below.
