Azriel Clary is one of many survivors of singer R.Kelly and his alleged sex cult. You may have seen Clary defending Kelly on social media or in an interview with Gayle King. Recently Clary and another woman associated with R. Kelly, Jocelyn Savage, seemed to have a physical altercation that led Clary to no longer be on the singer’s side. Since the altercation, Azriel has moved back in with her family and dropped surprise family photoshoot of the re-untied relatives to her social media.
“Surprise. Let the healing process begin. Love yall and thank y’all. I even thank everyone who follows me.. because you all believed in me when I could not believe for myself. #movingontobetterdays P.S – everyone will be posting there own fav photos so make sure y’all follow the family! #ontherunwithazriel,” she captioned the picture.
Since her separation from Kelly, Azriel Clary seems to have a little more to say than usual. Clary, who’s now 21, will be detailing her experience with the singer since she was 18 years old.
It has been said that in the past, Clary was scared to come forth with information because of her cover-ups for Kelly in the past. TMZ reports that Clary is no longer afraid of coming out against the singer because she wants control back of her life and has cut off all ties with Kelly and his team. Since her decision to come out, Clary has stated that she and her family have been receiving death threats and online harassment from Kelly’s supporters.
Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg tells TMZ that he is in no way surprised by Clary’s decision to turn on the singer. “It’s not news to me,” he states. “I’ve suspected it all along, but you can’t get in the way of love… Rob’s love for her.”
Since coming forward, Clary has been working on helping other women who have experienced similar situations, whether it was with Kelly or anyone else. Leaving the singer and coming forward was just her first step. Maybe one day in the future, Azriel could influence Jocelyn Savage to have a change of mind and come forward against the singer as well.
