R. Kelly’s Ex-girlfriend, Azriel Clary, is reportedly cooperating with the authorities investigating his New York sex crimes case.
Azriel Clary, 22, had been living with the R. Kelly- who is currently being held without bail on various sex crime charges – since she was 17 but following an alleged fight with R. Kelly’s other girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage, last month, Azriel Clary made the decision to leave and has reportedly accepted to speak to investigators about him.
Sources Tell TMZ that Azriel Clary had been considering speaking to authorities after leaving his home but was initially afraid as she’d allegedly lied in the past to cover for the ‘Ignition’ singer.
However, inside sources reveal she is no longer afraid of speaking out because she wants to take control of her destiny and she’s fully disconnected from him and his team.
Azriel is keen to help other women who have been in a similar situation, whether with R. Kelly or someone else, while prosecutors are monitoring threats that have been made against her and her family since she made her decision to return back home.
Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg, reveals he wasn’t really surprised that
Azriel Clary has decided to speak to investigators.
He revealed: “It’s not news to me. I’ve suspected it all along, but you can’t get in the way of love… Rob’s love for her.”
Alice Clary, mother of Azriel, spoke of her relief last month when she revealed her daughter had “came to her senses” and returned home.
She said: “The battle is won because she’s still here, she’s still alive, she’s still breathing and though she lost a few years of her life, she’s still here to tell her story.
“Because I chose not to keep her secluded in her life, she’s here now and we’re able to say the victory is won because she finally came to her senses and she’s back home with her family.
“People don’t understand she’s hurt. This man lied to her for years, and she was doing what she thought a good girlfriend would do because that’s what she thought she was.”
R. Kelly has denied abusing Azriel Clary, but her mother insists she is a victim and has been “Trapped for years” by the singer and she still has the “mental mindset” of a teenager.
