Savage’s parents held a press conference in Johns Creek on Monday in front of a home they say is Kelly’s, and alleging their daughter has been “brainwashed” by the singer. Her father, Timothy Savage, said he hasn’t seen his daughter since December and believes she now lives at Kelly’s Chicago home.
Wearing long hair and a grey sweater, 21-year-old Jocelyn Savage disputed the claims that her parents and sources cited in the BuzzFeed story made about Robert Sylvester Kelly. The story alleges that Savage and other women lived in Kelly’s homes in Chicago and in Johns Creek in an environment that is “an abusive cult.”
"I just mainly want to say that I am in a happy place with my life," said Savage, a former Georgia Gwinnett College student. "I’m not being brainwashed or anything like that. It just came to a point where it definitely has gotten out of hand. I just want everybody to know—my parents and everybody in the world—that I am totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at, and everything is okay with me."
“... (Joycelyn is) not allowed to tell you her location,” Timothy Savage says. “Mr. R. Kelly, if you want to file a lawsuit, you should’ve filed it yesterday. I’m waiting on you. File the lawsuit. If that’s what you want to do, I’ll see you in court. File it, so everybody can see your dirty laundry.”
Savage ended the video with a short message to his daughter, saying he was praying for her.
