R. Kelly Walks Out of Interview After Facing Questions About Sexual Abuse Allegations


Credit: Christian LantryR. Kelly has been seeking support for his latest album, The Buffet, but his promotional efforts were derailed after he walked out of a live interview during an appearance on Huff Post Live.

After receiving questions from Twitter, the singer was asked to explain the disconnect amongst fans who like his music, but can’t get past his alleged sexual relations with minors.  “I say f*** that,” he responded, adding, “You can’t satisfy everybody. I will continue to do my job until I get fired, and the only people who can fire me are my fans.”

While talking over the interviewer, Kelz threatened, “I know the difference between a negative question and a positive one so if I think it’s negative I’m going to walk.” When he was asked if he had a “healthy relationship with sex” given the sexual content on many of his albums, he responded: “I did not come here to get interrogated. I didn’t come here for a deposition. Do you know what a deposition is?”

Before walking out, Kelz unhooked his microphone and stated: “I’m not perfect, but I’m perfectly me.”

Meanwhile, The Buffet enters at #1 on both the Billboard R&B Albums and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, marking Kelly’s thirteenth consecutive debut at either #1 or #2 on the R&B Albums chart.
