R. Kelly was found guilty of sex trafficking and racketeering in a New York court last year. Later, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Joycelyn Savage, his fiancee, recently claimed that she is pregnant and expecting a child with the musician, but Kelly’s lawyers denied her claims. She has now doubled down on her claims with proof.

According to ET, R. Kelly’s fiancée has confirmed that she is pregnant with the imprisoned singer’s child. Joycelyn Savage revealed last week in an excerpt from her tell-all book, Love & Joy Of Robert, that she is pregnant with his child. “Months later, I began expecting severe morning sickness and was unsure what was wrong with my body. I thought I had contracted COVID-19, but the most amazing news of all was that I was expecting,” she wrote.

“It was a happy day but an incomplete time in my life. Today I am grateful to God for giving me the most precious gift. Robert is extremely excited about the news that I am having a baby and feels sad that Robert will not be able to be here with us.”

Kelly’s legal team denied the claim, calling Savage “Insane.” In an interview with the outlet, she doubled down and shared a sonogram of her child. She said that she is “very excited” and explained why R. Kelly’s lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, made disparaging remarks about her.

“His lawyer didn’t know that prior to him going to jail, Robert and I were doing IVF because at the time I was told I couldn’t have a baby.”

“When he got sent to prison, we paused on it and I had them freeze my eggs until I was ready.”

“Once his lawyer did find out, she wanted me to have an abortion because she didn’t feel that now was the time for me to have a child following the 30-year sentence. Me and Robert wanted to have a child for a long time. He is very happy about it, his lawyer isn’t. Once I told her I was keeping my baby, she didn’t want me to announce but I wanted to share the news. I’ve always been there for him even before this new lawyer came into the picture.”

This announcement comes just over two months after a letter revealed that Savage and the singer are engaged. Kelly’s team submitted the letter to Judge Ann Donnelly on June 13, two weeks before his sentencing in his sex trafficking case. Savage begins the letter by referring to herself as “Robert Kelly’s fiancé [sic].”

Kelly was later sentenced to 30 years in prison for racketeering, bribery, coercion, enticement, and sex trafficking. Kelly had previously denied all wrongdoing, pleading not guilty, and has stated repeatedly that he will appeal the ruling. Six weeks of court proceedings were held during the highly publicized trial. In her letter of support, Savage attempted to explain that she is not a victim.

Let’s see if Kelly’s attorneys can explain their claims made against savage. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
