In an explosive new interview, R. Kelly is breaking his silence about the sexual abuse charges that landed him in jail last month. The embattled R&B singer told @GayleKing that all the women now accusing him of physical and sexual abuse are lying. cbsn.ws/2NLorjg
Have you done anything you regret, have you done anything wrong? -- @GayleKing

“Lots of things wrong when it comes to women that I apologize, but I apologized in those relationships at the time that I was in the relationship, OK?” -- @RKelly

"If you really look at that documentary, which I'm sure you have… everybody says something bad about me. Nobody said nothing good. They were describing Lucifer. I'm not Lucifer. I'm a man. I make mistakes, but I'm not a devil, and by no means am I a monster." -- @RKelly
In 2008, R. Kelly was found not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography after prosecutors failed to convince a jury that he was the man seen in a sex tape with a girl as young as 13.

Last month, he was indicted again, charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse of 4 women.
Have you ever had sex with anyone under the age of 17? -- @GayleKing

"No. No." -- @RKelly



“Stop it. You all quit playing! Quit playing! I didn't do this stuff! This is not me! I'm fighting for my f***ing life! Y'all killing me with this sh*t!" @RKelly told @GayleKing, standing up. "I gave you 30 years of my f***ing career!"

WATCH: R. Kelly addressed his current relationship with the two young women who live with him at his home in Chicago, 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage and 21-year-old Azriel Clary. Their parents believe Kelly has brainwashed their daughters.

Do you still expect people to buy your music?

“Absolutely. I think they should... I'm really not really fighting for my career here. I'm fighting for my rights & I'm fighting to have a relationship with my kids most of all, more than anything.” -@RKelly cbsn.ws/2H4wc35
If your daughters came to you and said, "Look, this guy is doing to me what the allegations are against you." -- @GayleKing

“Then I would have to arrest myself after I did what I had to do.” -- @RKelly

When you say that you need help, do you think you need to go to therapy? Have you been to therapy? -- @GayleKing

“Absolutely. At this point, I'm definitely talking about that.” -- @RKelly

About going?

“Oh, absolutely.”
