VIDEO: R. Kelly goes on tirade, screams in first interview since arrest, charges

R. Kelly is facing several counts of aggravated sexual assault, some against underage girls.

The musician was arrested on the charges last month and is now free on $100,000 bond.

These newest charges against the “I Believe I can Fly” singer come after his 2008 trial in which he was acquitted for child pornography.

Kelly, in his first interview since being arrested and charged, sat down with CBS’ Gayle King. To say things didn’t go well for Kelly would be an understatement.

After complaining about double jeopardy when King brings up his past trial, Kelly stands up and begins screaming, crying and pounding his chest.

I understand he’s trying to defend himself against the sexual abuse charges, but this is not a good look for the singer/songwriter. This interview is not going to help him in the court of public opinion.
