Just when we thought R. Kelly couldn't get any crazier... he apparently thought his interview Gayle King was good for his image! In fact, he’s actually considering doing a follow-up with her.
Gayle said she reluctantly called his team after the interview aired to see how they were feeling about it.
“They were like, ‘Look, we’re so glad you called!’ They were really pleased,” she said. “They thought people got to see how passionate he was. They got to see his pain, and maybe they got to look at it in a different way.”
Kelly is currently free on $1 million bail after being indicted on criminal sex abuse charges with underage girls in February.
- ONE MORE THING: R. Kelly actually did a paid club gig in Springfield, Illinois over the weekend. Apparently it was lined up back in December – long before “Surviving R. Kelly” aired. He was originally scheduled to be a part of the Spring Break Jam festival at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, but his appearance was downgraded to the nearby Dirty South Lounge. Sources say that tickets were originally $100, but dropped to $50. Only about 50 people showed up, but they were treated to an intimate performance.
