James tells Megyn she had to ask permission to go the bathroom and lost weight because Kelly was controlling her food. “We were required to call him ‘Daddy,’” McGee says.

    if he was abusive just three weeks in..... why stay fr two years..... probably the money...gold digger...im not saying who is innocent or guilty but i think these interviewers already took their sides. look how gayle (i still love you )just pressing on and pushing kelly's buttons in that interview like she had a motive.. and when the parents were interviewed she too what they said as gospel.... idk. hope they get to the bottom of this.

  • Berni Slowey
    Berni Slowey Month ago

    Megyn Kelly - how about addressing the real root issue...R Kelly is a narcissist and how women can spot one to protect themselves. I hope he gets what he deserves, but more attention could be focused on the mental/personality disorder of Narcissism and how to avoid being a victim of the syndrome.

    People listen. When someone eyes go up & to the right they're accessing the creative part of the brain & are lying to you. Look at Kitti & Asante eyes when they speak. The lies are clear, eyes up then too right. They don't even know they're doing it. When speaking truth, eyes rest normal looking straight at interviewer. No need to embellish the truth. No creativity is involved.

    Girl on the left is being honest and sincere, I believe her.. however.. the one on the right, smiling and smirking a lot, talking about her book, she would say stuff like the sweatpants and didn't go into detail, touching her hair a lot, I don't trust that smile.. she wanting the fame. Talking about movie rights was weird, just throwing it in at the end.

    Brutal witch hunt! THese are two grown women who pursued Kelly because of his $$ and they don't deserve fame and fortune for being idiots! They keep lying! LIARS! Asante should never moved into Kelly's house she was married with a daughter! No one abused Asante she already had previous bad abusive relationships and now wants to blame Kelly for all her sexual problems but she was nothing but a penniless stripper dancer and a lengthy rap sheet to go with her livelihood or lifestyle. Blame yourselves fro being in an alleged abusive relationship, I bet you were already abused prior to meeting Kelly and he was the victim! Asante you have a criminal record that spans for years and you are a violent woman! Kitti you were never hurt by Kelly but mad that you made a mistake to leave a good job hoping that he would marry you and live happily ever after!

      R Kelly showed Asante the door. She was only there 3 weeks. She got into with another woman there.
      Kitti told R Kelly she wanted to go school shopping for her son, he gave her a lump sum of money, a flight & she never went back. She used the money for an apartment. Lol.
      That's their great harrowing escapes. Both of these clueless women left there kids trying to come up. Asante left her estranged husband as well. Her teen daughter was watching her younger children.
