Joycelyn Savage, one of R. Kelly’s girlfriends who has been estranged from her family for several years, will finally be reunited with her family soon.
And according to TMZ, R. Kelly’s team is actually making it happen. They have agreed to arrange for Joycelyn to meet with her family members face-to-face sometime early next week.
After R. Kelly’s interview with Gayle yesterday aired, Joycelyn reached out to her parents by phone and reiterated that she remains with Kelly by choice.
According to Gerald Griggs, an attorney for the Savage family, it was the first time the Savages spoke to their daughter since 2017. Savage’s parents have long claimed that R. Kelly brainwashed their daughter into staying with him.
Gerald Griggs told TMZ that the agreement to finally meet Joycelyn is tentative for now, because they haven’t locked down a specific date, time or location:
But we’re told they’re looking at Monday or Tuesday. Griggs also tells us the Savages made it clear they wanted to meet in a neutral city outside of Chicago.
If the meeting does take place — and the Savages believe it will — we’re told they plan to bring a psychologist along to evaluate Joycelyn.
After the conference call Joycelyn had with her family on Wednesday, a lot of people are saying Joycelyn sounded like she was reading from a script during the conversation. However, she maintains that she’s fine, happy and exactly where she wants to be.
Joycelyn is alleged to be one of R. Kelly’s “sex slaves.”
