The parents of Azriel Clary say she’s been trapped in a “sex cult” run by R. Kelly for the past three years.
They told Jay Morrison that they have issues with “Surviving R. Kelly,” the Lifetime docuseries about the sexual misconduct allegations against Kelly.
“Surviving R. Kelly” they said, omits key details and makes it look like they neglected their daughter.
Kelly has denied all the allegations against him.
The parents of a woman who they say has been trapped in a “sex cult” run by R. Kelly for three years are frustrated with the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Angelo Clary, the father of Azriel Clary, said they appreciate that Lifetime is bringing attention to Kelly’s alleged crimes, but that it doesn’t accurately represent the effort he and his wife made to help their daughter.
“I love Lifetime for the platform they gave us to give awareness to bring this to an end,” Angelo Clary said. “But they have no clue how much we went through. They have no clue what I did to help my family.”
Angelo and Alice Clary spoke about their daughter with Jay Morrison, a real estate mogul and motivational speaker, in a livestream posted to Morrison’s Facebook page. Kelly, they said, promised to help Azriel with her music career when she was a teenager. When she turned 18, she stopped contacting them, they said. The Clary parents believe she’s being held against her will in a “sex cult” run by the R&B singer.
