'My ex-wife is destroying my name', says tearful R Kelly

R. Kelly gestures while being interviewed in his apartment by CBS’s Gayle King

The new indictment accuses Kelly of sexual acts with three girls older than 13 but younger than 17.

Detroit police aren't saying whether they've been able to contact the victim or her attorney, Gloria Allred, but the details of the alleged abuse are alarming.

"Just use your common sense", Kelly said.

Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, has said his client did not "knowingly" have sex with underage girls.

It comes hours after R Kelly tearfully and angrily denied allegations of sexual abuse in a TV interview.

CBS also aired an interview with two women who allegedly still live with Kelly, 21-year-old Joycelyn Savage and 23-year-old Azriel Clary, who Kelly described in the first part of the interview as his "girlfriends".

King told her colleagues in the studio that Kelly's team told CBS that the singer would not be in the room while the women were being interviewed.

CBS News also spoke to Kitti Jones, who said she dated Kelly from 2011 to 2013. "And they're just very upset", Savage said.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announce engagement
There's no word on a wedding date, but Lopez has a U.S. tour scheduled to start June 7 and go until July 26. Rodriguez wrote in the post, "She said yes", alongside a photo of Lopez's hand with a massive diamond ring.

"Everything that she's saying is true, our parents are basically trying to get money and scam because they didn't agree with what happened with music or wherever we could be", she said. "We have our moments where we sit and watch movies all together, we go to amusement parks all together".

"My parents told me to lie about my age, so when I first met Kelly, he thought I was 18", Clary said. But I was never anxious he was going to hurt me. Didn't know what I was doing, didn't know what was going on ... three weeks ago to a month.

Clary added, "There are people all over the world who have multiple girlfriends".

While Azriel wouldn't talk about her sexual relationship with Kelly, she claimed that her parents attempted to extort money out of Kelly, threatening to release nude photographs of her on if they didn't get what they asked for.

At one point, Clary is bent over in her chair as she cries. She later addressed the headline-making interview on CBS This Morning on Wednesday.

Avenatti also responded to that in a tweeted statement Wednesday.

Some observers were surprised when reports suggested R. Kelly could not afford to bail himself out of jail. The parents have denied the accusations.

R. Kelly is back behind bars. "Sadly, like so many girls before them, Azriel and Joycelyn Savage have been manipulated and convinced by Kelly to lie to protect him from serious criminal charges". This, she explained, is why they have taken to the media to denounce the musician. "Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody", he asked. At 17, she claims the singer gave her herpes. On the phone call, she told her family that she was with Kelly by choice.
