R. Kelly's sit-down with Gayle King last week has already become infamous.
A lot of people were asking why he would even do the interview.
Sources tell TMZ that R. Kelly's "spirit" told him to do it:
"Sources close to the singer tell TMZ ... R. Kelly sat down with Gayle King because he is in constant touch with his "spirit" and tends to listen to it more than the people around him. He also said he felt he owed it to himself and his fans to break his silence and tell his side. After the interview aired last week, many viewers thought it was all an act, some felt he was having a mental breakdown and others used the emotional soundbites to make fun of Kelly on social media. But, we're told R. Kelly gives "zero f***s" about how he's being portrayed, and he can't be bothered by the public's reaction ... that's not, however, apparent from the CBS interview."
Kinda sounds like more proof Kelly's on the verge of coming unhinged.
He listens to his spirit more than the people around him.
Kelly also thought this would give him the platform to clear his name.
R. Kelly is facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.
