HuffPost Live dared to go where no other media outlet has treaded before with R. Kelly, and the R&B crooner wasn’t having it.
Kels appeared on the Internet talk show to discuss his new album The Buffet – the one he’s begging black folks to support. But when reporter Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani began asking him about his past allegations of sexual abuse against a minor, he straight walked off the set.
“I’m fittin’ to have a great time [in New York]. I didn’t come here for you to spoil that,” Kelly said to his interviewer. “So you got one more question. One more question.”
Modarressy-Tehrani’s used her last question to again bring up the “multiple accusations” against him regarding sexual abuse.
Kelly began talking over her question.
“I love my fans,” he concluded before pointing at Modarressy-Tehrani and adding, “And I love you, too.”
She replied, “You don’t need to give me any of your love, sir.” Attempting to pivot, she said, “I have a video question for you….”
“You don’t have no video question for me because this interview is over,” Kelly said, unhooking his mic.
HuffPost proudly tweeted video of this entire exchange and Kelly’s storm-out. Watch below:
