Father of Alleged R. Kelly Captive Responds to Singer’s Legal Threats: ‘I’ll See You in Court’
After a startling Buzzfeed piece alleged that R. Kelly was holding aspiring female singers against their will, one of the parents of the women has come forward with harsh words for the singer.
After Kelly released a statement saying he would fight to clear his name, the father of alleged captive Jocelyn Savage said he’s ready for a legal battle. In a video posted by TMZ, Tim Savage says a video of his daughter denying she is being held against only proves that she is in fact being held captive.
“You know the reason why Ms. Jocelyn Savage didn’t tell you where her location is? She’s not allowed to tell you her location,” the father said in the video. “Mr. R. Kelly, if you wanna file a lawsuit, you should of filed it yesterday. I’m waiting on you. File a lawsuit. If that’s what you what wanna do, I’ll see you in court. File it, so everybody can see your dirty laundry.”
Following the release of Buzzfeed’s report, a rep for R. Kelly released a statement, saying, “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”
