R. Kelly Walks Out of HuffPost Live Interview [VIDEO]
R. Kelly’s rumored obsession with underage girls and his 2008 acquittal on 21 counts of child of pornography will always continue to haunt the singer. On Monday (Dec. 21), during his interview on HuffPost Live, the veteran crooner didn’t like some of the questions regarding his past sexual misconduct and immediately walked off the set.
Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani conducted the heated interview, which started off nice before she dived into Kellz’s nefarious past. It wasn’t her fault, she had to know that the Grammy-winning singer wasn’t going to like any questions regarding his alleged interactions with young girls.
Modarressy-Tehrani asked him about his fans who are conflicted about supporting his music in light of his past sexual misconduct. “I say, ‘F--- that,’” he said. "I say I have a lot of fans around the world that love R. Kelly and I’m glad they don’t feel the way she do.”
But when Kelly is pressed about his alleged sexual proclivities with minors, he becomes defensive and talks over Modarressy-Tehrani.
“What I’m gonna tell you is that I am going to sit here and talk to you like the beautiful woman you are and I’m going to talk to you with respect,” he said. “And I’m going to let you know that any other negative things that come out of your mouth, I’m gonna get up and I’m gonna walk out and I’m gonna go to McDonald’s, hopefully the McRib is out. Then I’m gonna go to Chicago, play some basketball, go to the studio and work on my next album.”
Modarressy-Tehrani asked Kelly one more question and Kellz responded that he did not come on the show “to get interrogated” and called it a “deposition.” He then got up and left, maybe to look for a McRib sandwich.
"Well, that wasn't the Monday I was expecting!" tweeted Modarressy-Tehrani on her Twitter account.
