Joycelyn Savage has come forward to reject the claims that she is being abused by R. Kelly.
A Patreon page claiming to be the woman surfaced Saturday, accusing the artist of emotional abuse and manipulation. However, Savage denied the claims in a video shared by TMZ on Wednesday.
"Please do not believe what you see and hear on social media. That is not my Instagram. Someone is impersonating me," she said. "I’m not even that kind of girl that would do something like that and betray him. I’ve been through so much with him and we have a bond that is so special that no one ever can break."
Savage's family is still very much concerned about their daughter's well-being."The recent statement from Patreon underscores the family concern for the safety of their daughter Joycelyn," they said in a statement provided to CNN. "Numerous allegations made by the account were alarming and confirmed details from our independent investigation, therefore we also unsuccessfully reached out to the account."
Patreon, a crowdfunding platform, recently closed an account that was reportedly associated with Savage. "After multiple unsuccessful attempts to verify the identity of the account holder, we closed the Patreon page allegedly associated with Joycelyn Savage due to potential impersonation," Patreon said in a statement to USA TODAY. "All patrons who signed up for the membership page were refunded and the creator did not receive any funds."
The singer is currently being held at the federal detention facility in Chicago.
