R. Kelly Is Not Father Of Joycelyn Savage’s Unborn Baby, Lawyer Says

Savage revealed she was carrying Kelly’s child in her upcoming book.

Joycelyn Savage recently dropped a bombshell, claiming in her upcoming memoir that she’s pregnant with R. Kelly’s child.

That assertion is being disputed by Kelly’s legal team. According to TMZ, the singer’s attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, said Savage “is certainly not pregnant with R. Kelly’s child,” adding that her book is not a tell-all memoir and that “people are just insane.”

In her upcoming book, Savage claims that she’s several months pregnant and learned she was expecting after Kelly sent her an engagement ring. She says Kelly is “extremely excited about the news” but wishes he could be there for the birth of the rumored child.

That said, Savage never explained how she conceived the child, considering Kelly has been imprisoned for over a year. A lawyer for Savage’s parents told TMZ that they’re still processing the news and aren’t willing to comment at this time.

Additionally, Savage refers to Azriel Clary, one of Kelly’s other live-in girlfriends as “the other girl,” saying she became bipolar and eventually “smeared my name all over social media” after returning to her family.
