Joycelyn Savage’s family were reportedly clueless to the fact that she was engaged to R. Kelly before the news hit the blogs.
Gerald Griggs, an attorney for Savage’s parents, told TMZ that he has “strong doubts” the engagement story is accurate.
“Robert’s an all-around incredible person. He loves his music and is very passionate about that. He’s positive, outgoing and very generous. He always takes any opportunity he can to help those in need. He’s very determined and focused on his goals, and the things that have been said about him, with me and other women being held against our will is absolutely untrue, It’s the complete opposite of who he is and what my relationship is like with Robert.”
Joycelyn stayed with Kelly after Azriel Clary walked out on him.
In court docs, Joycelyn wrote: “Robert and I are deeply in love, and it breaks my heart that the government has created a narrative that I’m a victim,” she continued. “I’m a grown woman and can speak for myself, which is why I wanted to provide this letter to the court. I respectfully ask that the Court take my words into consideration when sentencing Robert. He is a great man, with a great heart and deserves to be home with his loved ones who are ready to support him.”
