The R.Kelly the saga continues to get even weirder. Jocelyn Sauvageone of his alleged victims, would now be his fiancée.
The disgraced crooner is apparently about to get married. According TMZ Jocelyn Savage submitted a letter Monday, June 13 to U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly ahead of her sentencing. While the purpose of the kite was to gain clemency for Robert, she said they intended to jump the broom. “My name is Joycelyn Savage and I am Robert Kelly’s fiancee,” she wrote. “I am writing this letter to support Robert before his sentencing, so that I can explain to the court that I am not the victim that the government has portrayed to me.”
She kept trying to clear her name. “Robert is not the monster the government has portrayed him as,” she added. “The Robert I know is very sweet, sweet and kind. In the end, he always made sure that I was taken care of, as well as all the other women he was with. She continued to call him an “incredible person in every way” who “takes every opportunity possible to help those in need”.
To close the letter, she made her feelings for Kelly very clear. “Robert and I are deeply in love and it breaks my heart that the government has created a narrative that I am a victim,” she concluded. “I am a grown woman and can speak for myself, which is why I wanted to provide this letter to the court.”
On June 30, R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison for federal racketeering and sex trafficking. Jennifer Bonjean, Kelly’s attorney, filed a notice of appeal on Monday.
