The new underage sex allegation out of Detroit came just hours after the R&B singer cried and ranted about being "assassinated" by the sex abuse allegations during an interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King.
These charges involve four women, three of whom would have been minors (younger than 16) at the time of the alleged crimes.
In today's talk, Kelly did more of the same, but also explained why the state of his finances was so bad that he could not pay the $161,000 he apparently owes to his ex-wife of 13 years, Andrea Kelly.
In his first TV interview since he was charged with sexual abuse last month, a tearful R. Kelly says he is "fighting" for his life. He claimed that he recently went to the bank, supposedly for the first time ever, to take control of and rearrange his funds.
At one point in the segment, Kelly leapt out of his chair in anger and yelled at the camera, while King sat cool, calm and collected. "Didn't know what the hell was going on". "Why would I? How stupid would that be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody ... how stupid would I be to do that?" She identified herself on the bond slip as "a friend" of Kelly's. "You're trying to solicit me like I'm some kind of f***ing prostitute". Because for one, I beat my case. That is my kids' mother. "She is not telling the truth", Kelly told King. "I just kept thinking "Okay, Robert, go ahead" and that's what I said". "How? If my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can't work?"
The singer must pay the full amount to get out of jail, Cook County Sheriff's spokesman Sam Randall said, following a court hearing over a Wednesday deadline for the money to be paid. Clary also accused her parents of encouraging her to make "sexual videos" with Kelly and then blackmailing him for money. "Why would I do that?" he said. "We have a relationship - it's real".
"We're with him, that's our relationship", Clary said on "CBS This Morning".

Bayern added their "surprise" that the announcement took place on the same day Low made an unannounced visit to Bayern's training ground.
Savage said she met Kelly when her father brought her to one of his concerts when she was 19.
Michael Avenatti, who represents Alice and Angelo Clary, Azriel's parents, responded in a statement to CNN on Thursday, saying, "Azriel Clary is suffering from years of mental abuse and manipulation by R. Kelly".
King continued, "So what I was really thinking to myself was: I'm not done with this interview, so I'm going to let him have his moment. Our parents are basically out here just to get money", Savage claimed.
"What kind of sick, demented man convinces countless young girls that their parents didn't want them or love them and "sold them" to him, all as part of an effort to sexually abuse and assault them?" he asked.
Kelly grew increasingly emotional in his interview with the 64-year-old King.
The interview also became heated when King questioned the sexual nature of the Kelly's relationship with both Clary and Savage.
In the CBS interview, for example, he denied ever having sex with anyone under 17, even though he married the late singer Aaliyah when she was 15.
