R. Kelly's girlfriends, 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage and 21-year-old Azriel Clary, are passionately speaking out in support of R. Kelly.
In a teaser for the women's full interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King, which airs on Friday, Clary bursts into tears while slamming 52-year-old Kelly's critics. Both Savage and Clary's parents have claimed that their daughters -- who live with Kelly at his home in Chicago -- have been brainwashed by him and are part of an alleged sex cult. Kelly has denied all accusations against him.
"I'm crying because you guys don't know the truth," Clary says. "You guys are believing some f**king facade that our parents are saying. This is all f**king lies for money, and if you can't see that, you're ignorant and you're stupid."
WATCH: @GayleKing spoke to Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary about living with R. Kelly and their estranged relationship with their families. It made them very emotional.
"I love them and it's almost like, they're my girlfriends," Kelly said. "It's like, you know, we have a relationship. It's real. And I know guys, I've known guys all my life that have five or six women, OK? So don't go there on me, OK? Because that's the truth."

When King questioned Kelly about the age difference between him and the women, Kelly pointed out that they were both legal.
"I don't look at much younger than me, I just look at legal," he noted. "I just look at, you're you, I'm me. Now I don't know if you're married. I don't know. I don't know if you had a relationship. I don't know. But one might be older than the other, one might be younger than the other, OK? So I just look at legal, OK? There are older men that like younger women. There are younger women that like older men.... I'm an older man that loves all women."
WATCH: R. Kelly addressed his current relationship with the two young women who live with him at his home in Chicago, 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage and 21-year-old Azriel Clary. Their parents believe Kelly has brainwashed their daughters.https://t.co/pPZcw2pbmcpic.twitter.com/IbH3PjbSVx
Kelly also claimed that Clary and Savage's parents' pushed them toward him. He said he met Savage when her father brought her to one of his concerts when she was 19.
"I didn't go looking for a Joycelyn Savage," he said. "I was doing my show. he brought her and asked a friend of mine to put her on the stage with R. Kelly, make sure she's on the stage."
As for Clary, the two met at one of his concerts when she was 17, when he pulled her onstage. Kelly vehemently denied having sex with her when she was underage.
"Absolutely not. Absolutely not," he said when asked. "Although her parents wanted me to."
When King commented, "You're with two women right now. You love them, they say they love you. What kind of love is it that keeps these young women away from their families?," Kelly replied, "I'm going to answer your question. What kind of father, what kind of mother, will sell their daughter to a man? How come it was OK for me to see them until they weren't getting no money from it?"
"Why would you take your daughter -- I'm going to take my daughter and she's 19 years old to a 49-year-old icon, whatever, celebrity or R. Kelly concert or whoever it is, I'm not going to put her on the stage, and leave her," he continued. "I'm going to take her to the concert. Their father is more into my music and know about my music than they do."
King then asked Kelly point-blank if Clary and Savage's parents "handed" their daughters over to him, to which Kelly responded, "Absolutely. Are the cameras still going? Absolutely."
Ahead of the interview, Clary's parents, Alice and Angelo Clary, sent out a statement via their attorney, Michael Avenatti. The Clarys allege that their daughter has "suffered severe mental abuse" and call Kelly a "liar, a manipulator and sociopath."
"We love our daughter Azriel very much and we miss her," the statement reads. "Azriel has suffered severe mental abuse at the hands of R. Kelly for years. She is also likely suffering from symptoms similar to those found with Stockholm Syndrome. R. Kelly is a liar, a manipulator and sociopath who must be brought to justice for his decades of sexual assault on underage girls. All of these victims and their parents cannot be lying."
