Kelly’s lawyer Steve Greenberg responded to the reports, telling People, “It is offensive that anyone gives this any credibility.”
Kelly's publicist Darrell Johnson also commented, telling E! News the claims were "fake." He said the songwriter was fine and was "getting ready (to) rehearse and sing some songs."
On Feb. 22, Kelly was jailed and charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He was released on $100,000 bond after spending three nights in a Chicago jail. A female acquaintance bailed him out.
Kelly has adamantly denied all sexual assault allegations against him. Last week, he continued to proclaim him innocence to Gayle King during an emotional appearance on “CBS This Morning.”
Clary and his other girlfriend, AtlantanJoycelyn Savage, also sat down with King. They denied claims by their parents that they’d been “brainwashed” by Kelly. They defended the artist and declared they were happy.
