She said listening to Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, Kelly's current live-in girlfriends was hard to watch too.

But Clary said she never wanted to be a singer, and her parents forced her to pursue it, which made her so distraught she wanted to kill herself at one point.

The interview segment opened with both women insisting they were in a relationship with Kelly: "We all are family all together", Clary said.

When King probed if it was a "three-way sexual relationship", Clary angrily shot back that it was none of her business.

Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, has said his client did not "knowingly" have sex with underage girls. The attorneys for both families have said they have never asked for or received any money from Kelly. The parents of both women claim that their daughters have been brainwashed by Kelly.

The interview also marked the first time he addressed allegations in the Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly", which aired in January and alleged he held women captive and ran a "sex cult".

Savages' family also reportedly accused the singer earlier Wednesday of shielding their daughter from them.

"CBS This Morning" aired the second installment of its interview with the embattled singer Thursday.

"I did worry at some points that he might accidentally hit me, because he was so angry that he was flailing", she said. I just want her home.

The special will include never-before-seen parts of that 80-minute sit-down with Kelly and of the interview with the two women living.

When asked about their relationship with Kelly, who has been charged with more than 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, Clary said that they "live with him" and are "in a relationship with him". There is no age range listed for one of the alleged victims.

Kelly's court hearing for his sexual abuse case is set for March 22.

Allegations have followed Kelly ever since it was revealed that, at 27, he illegally married his 15-year-old protegee Aaliyah. Surprisingly, TMZ is reporting that despite the turmoil, the door is still open for reconciliation, although I gather, the conversation only starts once R Kelly meets those child support requirements.
