21-year-old Jocelyn Savage whose family claimed was held hostage by R&B singer R. Kelly has debunked her family’s sensational claim, insisting she’s safe and well.
This is following the press conference her mother, father and sister held on Monday in Atlanta, claiming their daughter and sister was one of many young women who the 50-year-old singer, had targeted in recent years and that they hadn’t spoken to her for months.
However Jocelyn, who threw out their claim that she was ‘in a happy place’ with had been R. Kelly who has been plagued by accusations of child sex abuse in the past.
‘I’m 21, I’m about to be 22 in a few days and I just mainly want to say that I am in a happy place with my life and I’m not being brainwashed or anything like that.
‘It just came to a point where it definitely has got out of hand. I’m totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at and everything is OK with me.’
Asked if she was being held involuntarily, she said:
‘Oh no, nothing like that. I’ve never felt like a hostage or anything like that.’
Addressing her parents’ concern, she said:
‘I don’t really know what’s going on with that,’ she said of their fears on Monday. ‘I’m very heartbroken over what’s going on with this situation because it’s getting to a point where it’s getting too much.
‘It’s just not right.’
TMZ reports that though she insisted she was ‘fine’, she refused to answer when asked if she was free to come and go from the house. She also refused to answer when asked if she was still in Atlanta, Georgia.
