In case you missed it, R. Kelly was picked up in Chicago on federal charges by the NYPD and Homeland Security. Friday morning, his publicist Darrell Johnson held a press conference in Atlanta to give an update on the singer, instead, he was disrupted by the family of alleged victim Joycelyn Savage.
While at the podium, Johnson spoke to the gathered media but was interrupted by Timothy Savage.
“I don’t wanna hear all that, bro,” Timothy Savage, Joycelyn’s father, said. “R. Kelly is in there right now in jail. I wanna know where my daughter’s at! Where is she at? Answer that question!”
Johnson did respond to Savage and detailed that he has “nothing to do” with his daughter and she was not being held against her will.
