The Latest: Parents: Kelly holding daughter against her will

By The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on the sexual abuse case against R&B singer R. Kelly (all times local):

10:30 a.m.

A lawyer for a Georgia couple who say their daughter is being held against her will by R. Kelly lashed out after a television interview with the R&B singer.

Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage say it's been two years since they heard from their daughter, 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage. They say Kelly won't let her contact them, which Kelly denied in his interview with "CBS This Morning."

The couple's attorney, Gerald Griggs, bristled at Kelly's assertions that the Savages offered up their daughter to him and were in it for the money. Griggs said Wednesday that "at no point did this family sell their daughter to anyone or provide their daughter for anything for money."

Griggs says the family has never asked for or received money from Kelly.

The 52-year-old singer was charged last month in Chicago with sexually abusing four females dating back to 1998, including three underage girls.

6:30 a.m.

An emotional R. Kelly says he's being "assassinated" and denies sexually abusing women and controlling their lives.

"CBS This Morning" on Wednesday broadcast Kelly's first interview since he was charged with sexually abusing four people, including three underage girls. Kelly says "all of them are lying."

The R&B singer says he's done "lots of things wrong" when it comes to women, but he says he's apologized. He denies doing anything against their will.

The singer believes social media is to blame for creating the allegations against him.

At one point during the interview, Kelly stands up and rants, saying: "I have been buried alive, but I'm alive." He says he needs someone to help him "not have a big heart."

CBS says it interviewed Kelly for 80 minutes.
