Gayle King Speaks Out About R. Kelly Interview
Gayle King has a lot to say about her sit-down with a fired-up R. Kelly, which happened days after the singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four alleged victims.
In an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Gayle spoke freely: “He was upset with me for some of the questions, he was a little irritated, that’s okay,” she said.
Reflecting on his responses to her questions, she expressed thoughts on the singer’s behavior.
“He keeps saying that, ‘I didn’t do anything wrong. All these women are wrong,’ and I go, ‘All these women are lying except for you?’ That just defies logic,” she said.
“When I went into the interview Stephen, I knew he wasn’t going to say, ‘You know Gayle, you’re right. I’ve done terrible things.’ But I did think on some level, he would have a moment of reflection, he would have contrition.”
What happened next was a tirade. Hear more of Gayle’s response:
