AceShowbiz - R. Kelly's alleged sex slaves Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary continue to show their loyalty to the embattled singer amid numerous sexual abuse and misconduct allegations against him. The two women are reportedly teaming up to get the 52-year-old star Michael Jackson's former defense team.
Sources tell TMZ that the two self-proclaimed girlfriends of Kelly have a couple potential projects in the works that could earn them a big payday, including a book deal. They are also said to be reaching out to media outlets to land some paid interviews. So far, they haven't booked an interview yet, but some have reportedly shown interest.
Joycelyn and Azriel allegedly are going to use that money to hire Tom Mesereau, the attorney who is best known for successfully getting MJ acquitted in his child molestation trial. The lawyer was hired by Mike Tyson when he was investigated for alleged rape in 2001, but the charges were eventually dropped. He also famously got a not guilty verdict for actor Robert Blake, who was accused of murdering his wife Bonnie Lee Bakley in 2001.
The cost of Kelly's trial is estimated to go over a million dollars as his New York federal case alone could require forensic experts, sex-trafficking specialists, private instigators and other authorities. He is also facing charges in Illinois and Minnesota.
Kelly can no longer make money from performance as he has been put in jail since he's indicted on various sex crime charges in Chicago, Illinois in July. A judge denied his request for a release on bail on July 16, reasoning that the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer is a danger to the community, especially to minor girls, and should not be released from custody.
In March, Kelly was arrested after failing to pay $161,633 in child support. He spent three days at the Cook County Jail before someone, who didn't want to be identified, paid off the child support.
