R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend Azriel Clary is poised to tell all everything about her 5-year relationship with the disgraced singer. In a recent video that she shared on YouTube on Saturday, April 25, Azriel announced her plans to begin a YouTube video show in which she would share her truth about what she felt and experienced when she dated the singer.
“Okay guys so I have been in therapy and a big part of healing is being able to talk. And so, I’m going to tell you guys everything that I have experienced, everything that I have seen, everything that I have endured during these last five years,” so the 22-year-old said in a video which was titled “Intro – My Last 5 Years”.
“Truthfully, I just feel like this man is in his 50s, OK? And I am not the first person this man has done this to, ok? This is something that’s been happening since the 90s. This is something that’s been happening way before Aaliyah,” she said. “If he really wanted to change, he would spend millions and millions of dollars on a therapist and on getting help.”
Azriel also insisted that her “purpose is not to boast, it’s not to degrade, it’s not to make anybody look bad or tell somebody else’s secrets.” She added, “It is just for me to be able to heal, to be able to move on past. This is personally how I choose to heal.”
“Once I do this, I kid you not, I will be done with this forever. My goal is to not make money off someone’s name,” she went on to say. Azriel, however, hasn’t planned out how long the series would be, saying that it could be as short as five videos or as long as 100 videos.
Azriel dated Kelly when she was 17 while the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was 48. The R&B star is currently in jail for multiple sexual misconduct charges, including three federal sex trafficking charges: kidnapping, forced labor, sexual exploitation of a child and racketeering. His first court date is tentatively set for September. Kelly denied all allegations of sexual abuse.
