R&B crooner R. Kelly was released from prison after a woman, whose name has been reported as Valencia Patrice Love, paid out the singer's bail amount in full.
Fox News Chicago anchor Tia A. Ewing released a series of notes taken during a 14 minute long interview with Love. Love reportedly told Ewing, "I'm not going to say it was my money (Valencia P. Love) or his (RKelly) money and he's not broke. He was going to post bond by Thursday anyway. He's my friend and he needed help."
Discussing the allegations against R. Kelly, Love reportedly told Ewing, "There are three sides to every story, his side, there's (the alleged victims), and the truth. I can't say they're lying (the girls/young ladies). It wasn't my money, I'm not going to say whose money it is. I don't condone any man sodomizing anyone or abusing a woman."
He (RKelly) told me he was innocent, if he did it he is wrong. If he did it that's wrong. He's telling me he's innocent. I wasn't there, you (Tia Ewing) wasn't there, give him the chance and allow him to prove his innocence.
Love said, "Look at all these priest, why isn't anyone going after them. Their having a summit over that now. Why isn't anyone focused on Kierra Coles (missing pregnant postal worker in Chicago, gone since October 2018)? The media focused on Jayme Closs. Why isn't anyone looking for Kierra? He's (RKelly) only been a gentleman to me. The prosecutors and attorney general need to be prosecuting the priest that were sleeping with 5 and 6 year old children.
"I'm not in support of any pedophile, I don't support that at all. He was going to get out regardless, I just went out there to help my friend," she said.
Valencia P. Love, an alleged daycare owner, came under public scrutiny after she was named as the person responsible for posting 10 percent of Kelly's $100,000 bail.
#RKelly’s friend that bailed him out breaks her silence. I spoke with Valencia P. Love for 14 minutes. She says the singer isn’t broke and she didn’t use her $100,000 for Kelly to bounce from the county. Here are notes from our conversation by phone. @fox32news pic.twitter.com/CvTblkyT2j— Tia A.
