This morning (Mar. 6), R. Kelly sat down with Gayle King on CBS This Morning where he discussed the recent sexual assault allegations against him.

In the clips, you can see a very distraught R. Kelly. He says he is “tired” of the lies and accusations against him. "I'm very tired of all of the lies," he states. "I've been hearing things, and you know, and seeing things on the blogs and you know, you know, I'm just tired."
There has been mixed reactions circulating on the internet. Some people are siding with R. Kelly, but many don’t believe his tears. One user states, R. Kelly is a "much better singer than actor,” as well as “he is desperate and distraught because he knows he’s been caught.”

I have met with some of R. Kelly’s victims.
The man is lying.
I lost count of the lies he told in this interview with Gayle King. It’s in the dozens of lies.
He is a disturbing sociopath.
