After denying the allegations she is being held captive by R. Kelly, Jocelyn Savage has released another statement directed at her family: Stop with the abusive cult claims.

“I would like to direct this message to my family, but especially my dad. Dad, you know everything that’s going on with the media and the internet, and what you have done is a complete disaster, and you need to stop. Because right now, I am fed up with everything you are doing,” Jocelyn said in the video posted by TMZ. “You are embarrassing me and the whole entire family. I am happy where I’m at and the people that I’m around. It’s getting out of hand, seriously. Because honestly, you know the situation that had happened that night when I went to meet R. Kelly. So I would like for you…matter of fact, I would love for you to stop what you’re doing, because I can’t believe you even went this far. I love you to death, but I need you to understand me. Please stop what you’re doing. Please.”

Jocelyn’s video was posted shortly after her father, Tim Savage, publicly dared R. Kelly to sue him. Tim’s message was in response to his daughter’s initial statement in which she insisted she was not being held against her will; however, Jocelyn refused to say where she was located. Why? Well, according to Tim, it’s “because she’s not allowed to” reveal that information.

R. Kelly has “unequivocally” denied the cult accusations, which surfaced in an explosive Buzzfeed report Monday. R. Kelly’s attorney, Linda Mensch stated her client is “alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him,” and is now working to clear his name.

The 50-year-old R&B singer shared a motivation tweet Tuesday, with image that read: “Don't let yesterday take up too much of today”; he included the caption: “You have work to do and purpose to live. Make it count.#MorningsWithKellz #MorningMotivation.”

R. Kelly followed the tweet with a Happy Birthday message for the late Nelson Mandela. That post also included a caption about overcoming adversity.
