Weird R Kelly interview with Gayle King

A publicist for R&B singer R. Kelly says he was taken into custody Wednesday for failing to pay more than $160 thousand in child support

CBS also plans to air interviews with two women who are now living with Kelly, including one whose parents say she is being held against her will. He pled not guilty.

R Kelly had told King that there was no reason for him to do any of the crimes he was charged with.

What stories have disturbed him the most?

But King pushed back on his assertions, saying: "I have to tell you, it's so hard to believe that, based on all that we've read and what the women have said about you". "I've been hearing things and seeing things on the blogs and I'm just exhausted". "Absolutely not", replied Kelly.

In the segment, compiled from more than 80 minutes of footage between King and Kelly, the R&B singer broke down in tears, shouted at the camera, and began beating his chest while he repeatedly denied the claims against him. I'm not Lucifer, I'm a man. I make mistakes, but I'm not a devil.

As King continues her questioning in the promo, referencing a 2017 report that said Kelly held women against their will in an abusive "cult", Kelly becomes more animated and emotional.

The recording artist has been trailed for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves. The singer gave an emphatic, "No!"

"The symbol of women everywhere", Zara Rahim, head of strategic communications at The Wing, tweeted, sharing a screen grab of King sitting calmly as Kelly waved his arm near her face. He claimed that had been "assassinated" and "buried alive" by the allegations. Do you still sit here and say you have never been with underage girls. He later apologized to King, who remained composed as he stormed the set, and explained "this is the first time I was able to say anything".

"At one point in Gail [sic] King's interview with R Kelly, it took on the feel of accidental renaissance", another said, sharing the picture in a painted format.

"How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through", he went on in his emotional rant.

He continued, "That's stupid!"

"That's stupid, use your common sense", he adds. "Hate me if you want to, love me if you want". You can't double jeopardy me like that. Just use your common sense.

"I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement and don't let them eat and don't let them out".

He yelled, "Stop it".

You're probably going to see clips from this interview surface again and again as Kelly's courtroom battle plays out. "Quit playing, I didn't do this stuff, this is not me, I'm fighting for my fucking life". This is not me! "This is not me", adding that he is "fighting for my f****** life". Y'all killing me with this s-t! "But people have gone their whole careers and not have the allegations that have been leveled against you", King responded. Insists Kelly, "Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true".

"I don't need to". My heart is so big.

"Are you saying that everybody in that documentary was not telling the truth about you?"

WATCH: @GayleKing spoke to Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary about living with R. Kelly and their estranged relationship with their families.

For the first time since the docuseries came out, Kelly is speaking publicly.
