22-year-old Azriel shared a cryptic message on Instagram. She shared a screenshot of a note she wrote that read, “If I could be 17 again….”
Azriel was only 17 years old when she first met R. Kelly in 2015. She appears to be alluding to wishing she never met Kelly and didn’t have to be dragged into his mess. She is slowly starting to speak her true feelings.
If I could be 17 again..

Earlier this year, Azriel’s parents spoke to Gayle King about their belief she was trapped by Kelly. They accused Kelly of promising to launch Azriel’s music career but actually having sinister motives. He asked for Azriel to join him on tour and they allowed after she threatened harm on herself.
Azriel stayed by Kelly’s side for years despite his arrests, criminal charges and sexual abuse allegations. She recently decided to move out of his Trump Tower condo in Chicago, reportedly over the drama.
On “Surviving R. Kelly Part II”, producers revealed Azriel had reunited with her family but doesn’t live with them. At the time, she still remained supportive of the singer. Azriel started to become vocal on social media in the past couple of weeks.
The tone in which she speaks about Kelly appears to be changing. She originally lashed out at people criticizing her standing by him. Azriel famously sat down with Gayle King to talk about her love of Kelly.
Azriel appears to no longer be such a fan of Kelly writing, “Everybody asking me do I support R. Kelly, how bout y’all ask him if he support me? Any questions y’all got y’all can write him yourself MCC – 71 W. Van Buren St, if it DONT apply to me. I DONT KNOW! Plain & Simple. So stop asking ? your gonna love me for me or not.”
Azriel was spotted in Los Angeles after moving out of his home. Earlier this week, she went to Instagram live to talk to her followers. Azriel talked about Kelly’s other girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage, who still lives with the singer. She revealed she still “talks to her every day, to make sure she’s okay.”
Azriel teased she is ready to tell her side of the story.
