The parents of Joycelyn Savage just took over the presser for R. Kelly, demanding to see their daughter after the singer was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges.
Kelly’s publicist, Darrell Johnson, was holding a press conference in Chicago discussing the federal charges when Joycelyn Savage’s father, Timothy, charged the podium and began demanding answers about his daughter.
“Where’s my daughter?!” demanded Timothy. “Answer that question!”
The scene was intense, and Johnson had no answer for Joycelyn’s father.
As we reported, the Savage family attorney, Gerald Griggs, said “We are satisfied that Federal Authorities believed the families and survivors that were victims of Robert Kelly.”
The Savage family was integral in the dual indictments coming down agains the hip-hop star, and provided evidence and testimony to the grand jury that led to the federal charges in both New York and Chicago.
Timothy Savage, Joycelyn’s father, and the rest of the family provided text messages, plane tickets and other evidence that allegedly proved Kelly and his associates were transporting underage girls around the country for his own personal pleasures.
The Savage family met with federal investigators back in March after officials traveled to Georgia from New York.
They sat through extensive interviews and were extremely cooperative while investigators combed through years of evidence and accusations.
After Kelly was arrested, the Savage family told us, “We thank the jurors and prosecutors that returned the indictment against R Kelly. We are hopeful that justice will be served in this case.”
Kelly will be arraigned in Chicago before being transported to New York to face the separate indictment.
