In the video, the male interviewer asks Savage if she is “being held against her will” or doing anything she doesn’t want to do. She says no.
“I’ve never felt like a hostage or anything like that in that nature,” she says. “Never.”
Savage says she texts her parents from “time to time” but last spoke to them face-to-face parents “five or six months” ago and they have been “causing problems” in her life.
Savage said she’s not in Georgia, but didn’t tell the BuzzFeed reporter where she was. Savage also dodged questions on who she was with and if she was allowed to leave wherever she was.
“No,” she said. “I don’t want to speak on that.”
Kelly’s lawyer, Linda Mensch, sent a statement to the AJC yesterday saying Kelly will “forcibly pursue his accusers to clear his name.”
Timothy Savage, Joycelyn's father, is calling Kelly's bluff. He filmed a short video yesterday in response to the interview Joycelyn gave to TMZ.
“... (Joycelyn is) not allowed to tell you her location,” Timothy Savage says. “Mr. R. Kelly, if you want to file a lawsuit, you should’ve filed it yesterday. I’m waiting on you. File the lawsuit. If that’s what you want to do, I’ll see you in court. File it, so everybody can see your dirty laundry.”
Savage ended the video with a short message to his daughter, saying he was praying for her.
